After filming is completed on the movie, AJ, Rarity, and Fluttershy sit in their trailer and complain about their underutilized talents.

The Cakes move cross-country to franchise Sugarcube Corner in Tall Tale. Teenage Pound and Pumpkin's new school is full of bullies, their new city is full of crime, and oh yeah, they've also discovered a changeling conspiracy to enslave ponykind. The changelings are much craftier now than when they mysteriously vanished sixteen years ago. They can now copy ponies' very memory and behavior, and they've infiltrated every major Equestrian institution. Anypony could be a secret changeling, so Pound and Pumpkin can't trust the police, princesses, or even their own parents. They must stop the threat alone.

Cover art by DigitalDreama! Editing by TheAspiringWriter93. Story is not a crossover, but makes homages to 1990's entertainment. Story does NOT contain PoundxPumpkin shipping. Rated teen for violence and occasional death.

Gilda never chose to be born a carnivore. If she could, she'd become an herbivore like her pony friends. But her own biology has betrayed her morality: she has no choice but to eat meat for its nutrients. So she hunts zebras, the only feasible food for her. At least she will try to do it as humanely as possible.
