Chapter 5: Letters Unexpected
That evening, inside Twilight and Spike’s cabin, Twilight is dictating a letter to Spike.
“Dear Princess Celestia:
“My friends and I have arrived at Dream Valley and it is nothing like we imagined it would be. We didn’t find an empty valley. Instead, my expedition of discovery has found an undiscovered nation of metallic ponies. I’m doing my best to keep a clear and level mind. After all, I am working to keep calm and cool when the unexpected happens.
“I’m sending you photographs of these metallic ponies. You might know how or why their coats are metallic.
“Lastly, I’m asking your permission to act as your diplomatic representative to the Dream Valley Republic. I’ll send you all the information I can get my hooves on, so you are able to make the best choices you can make about setting up diplomatic treaties, cultural exchanges, and trade agreements with the Dream Valley Republic.
“I’d tell you more, but I need to get some rest after a long day.
“I will always grow smarter and stronger under the warmth of your sunlight and the warm glow of our friendship,
“Your friend, Princess Twilight Sparkle”
After a few minutes, Spike burped up Celestia’s reply.
“My dear Twilight:
“Princess Luna and I read and reread your letter several times. We are confused and somewhat shocked that an entire nation of ponies could exist on other side of the Western Ocean. Please keep sending us letters on what your expedition finds in Dream Valley.
“My sister and I don’t have any idea how or why the Dream Valley ponies have metallic coats and manes.
“We agree that you are the pony that should establish diplomatic ties with these metallic ponies. We approve that you will take upon yourself the duties of a diplomatic representative to Dream Valley, until our experienced Equestrian diplomatic ponies can be assigned to the Dream Valley Republic. You must also propose that we consider the possibility of building embassies in each other’s capitol cities.
“Always appreciate both the warm sunlight and the cool moonlight,
“The Royal pony sisters, Celestia and Luna”
