Golden Oaks library: a place of knowledge—and friendship. So it's only natural that Twilight shares her passion for learning with Fluttershy by showing her a relic of the past. But her science lesson takes a cryptic turn, and Twilight witnesses an unknown aspect of a friend as Fluttershy's empathy draws her across the divide of time, connecting her with somepony she could have never known.
