Twilight is having a difficult time adjusting to being an alicorn. Everything is changing, and it's nothing like she expected. She's wanted this all her life - so why is she always turning into a monster in her nightmares?

Her friends keep telling her that it can't be that bad, and whatever changes may come, being a princess is worth it. Especially Rarity, who looks at her a little differently now that she has wings and a title. But if Celestia won't tell her what it's really like being an alicorn, what else is she hiding?

Everypony is doing their part to fight the forces of Sombra and the Crystal Empire. On the front lines, Soarin sees the horrors of fighting an endless army of mind-controlled soldiers firsthoof. It's enough to make anypony lose hope.

It's why he looks forward to the shipments from home so much. And more importantly, the pony bringing those shipments. Sometimes, all you need is one reminder that there's something to fight for.

In the dreary city of Canterlot, all that remains of a once-mighty Equestria, Rarity is restless. She's a skilled machinist, owner of her own repair shop, but the work is dull and lifeless. She longs to feel like she's important, like she's making a difference, like she could be somepony.

And with the griffon army continually threatening Equestria's security, there's no better way to contribute than to join the Royal Canterlot Army. They're always on the lookout for skilled engineers, and with her talent, it's not like they'd make her actually fight anypony... right?

Rainbow Dash insists that Sunset Shimmer should try the new haunted house in the Equestria Land theme park.

Sunset doesn't see the point. After all, she's fought actual villains and comes from a world where dragons and monsters are just a fact of life. Cheap gimmicks and jumpscares hardly sound like her idea of fun.

But hey, if there's a chance to prove to Rainbow that she's not scared, what's the harm?
