Where there's smoke...
What could be in that miniature cave?
Fluttershy bringing her bird friends worms.
Worms do not taste so well.
Getting shy in front of the birds, now?
"Not too fast now, Angel bunny."
"You don't want to get a tummy ache."
Wait, Angel, it's not playtime yet.
Fluttershy talking with a carrot in her mouth.
Angel running while Fluttershy flies overhead.
A happy looking Angel Bunny.
Come on Angel, just one small, tiny bite?
Angel refuses to finish his carrot.
Maybe it's up there? *hint hint*
Fluttershy looking up at the smoke.
Angel throwing a carrot at Fluttershy after taking so long.
Angel is not impressed (which is not unusual).
"I'll take that as a yes."
Trying to warn everypony
The black smoke, making its way to Ponyville
The ponies, having a carefree time.
attempting to break the world record for "most ball bounces".
Why is Dashie smiling about the bouncing ball?
looks awfully excited to see Rainbow Dash try and beat the ball bouncing record.
Fluttershy continues to try and warn everypony, even though she is being ignored.
Pinkie's planning a celebration for Rainbow Dash.
Pinkie happily bouncing while Fluttershy tries to get her attention.
Pinkie always stops at the worst of times.
The thing that started it all.
Pinkie distracts Dash at the wrong time.
"Pinkie Pie! Now I have to start over!"
Fluttershy fears nopony will hear her.
Twinkleshine and Golden Harvest, smiling.
Twilight sure knows how to get attention.
Other ponies notice the thick black smoke.
informs the ponies about the black smoke and the dragon.
The black smoke, now making its way to the library.
Ooh, what an adventure this will be!
"What are we meant to do about it?"
explains the plan to the girls.
100 years? "Talk about getting your beauty sleep!"
We'll show that dragon, who's boss!
We can totally do this, right ponies?
"Do we have what it takes?"
Rainbow Dash's cloud home.
Rainbow Dash is ready to kick some dragon's butt!
Applejack's family helps her prepare.
Apple Bloom helps out too.
Got to remember the "Apple Juice".
Pinkie's ready to go and face the dragon.
Her "arsenal" escapes her saddle-bags.
Of course, she laughs about it.
Rarity prepares for the dragon.
makes a bad fashion choice for once.
Let's face that dragon, with a hint of fashion.
Fluttershy is certainly all decked out to face the dragon.
And then the door slam frightens her.
Getting out of the mission
"All right girls, listen up. I'm mapping out the fastest route..."
"...but we've all got to keep a good pace if we expect to make it up the mountain by nightfall."
Fluttershy tries to wriggle out.
Pay attention, or she's leaving.
Have someone else take care of your pets.
Good thing Spike
is there to look after her animals.
's one mean streak thumpin' bunny!
Fluttershy sees her shadow...
...and decides to hide from it.
The group leaving with Fluttershy, whether she likes it or not.
The long way
"Well, it is a mountain!"
Once that dragon sees my awesomeness, he'll have to leave.
's all set, with smiles to spare.
is scared by the dragon's roar. Her wings snap to her sides and she falls like a rock.
She falls back down into a bush.
Rainbow Dash is less than amused.
Apparently, Fluttershy's wings have test anxiety.
"We don't have time for this!"
I'm going to take the long way.
Rainbow Dash: "AROUND the mountain? That's gonna take them FOREVER!"
This is taking a long time!
Fluttershy is still petrified.
"Told you it would take them forever."
A hop, skip, and jump
About to jump over the gap.
Fluttershy, don't look down.
..Now, I'm even more scared!
First, move your little rump.
managed to make Fluttershy smile.
Don't listen to Twilight!
Turns out the jump wasn't that big...
"I guess I forgot to jump."
Fluttershy yells "AVALANCHE!"
Rainbow Dash flying through.
A heap of dirt and rocks remain.
"Oh, please tell me I brought the tiara that goes with this."
Ah, don't fall Fluttershy.
Oops! Well, accidents happen.
At the dragon's cave
"Still think it was a good idea to bring Fluttershy along?"
"We're about to find out."
Forget rubber chickens! We have under-ripe fruit!
Twilight inside the cave.
Fluttershy with her head literally in the sand.
Fluttershy doesn't want to go in the cave.
"Why didn't you say something before we came all the way up here?"
Twilight's awkward smile.
Angering the dragon
Sleeping like a baby. A really BIG, scaly baby.
Oh, looks like he's getting up to leave-
...Nope. Guess he's not...
tries to charm the dragon into leaving.
Maybe some of my charm will help.
Rarity's attempt in charming.
All this gold here in a cave ?
You don't mind leaving the cave now, do you?
I mean, look at your handsome scales.
Yes, and you're hiding them away, and I wouldn't mind taking care of your gems for you.
Rarity is the Element of Generosity! This is UNACCEPTABLE!
..Now leave this instant!
Ooh, yeah sure, that's what I meant.
Maybe laughter will bring him out.
"We've tried persuasion..."
"...whatever it is Pinkie does."
The dragon comes out, furious.
Fluttershy fights back
The terrified ponies huddle.
Fighting a dragon isn't a good idea.
"Just because you're big..."
"...doesn't mean you get to be a bully!"
"You may have huge teeth, and sharp scales, and snore smoke, and breathe fire..."
"You do not! Hurt! My! Friends!"
"But that rainbow one kicked me!"
"And I am very sorry about that."
"But you're bigger than she is, and you should know better."
Fluttershy faces her fears...
"Don't you 'but I' me, mister."
"Now what do you have to say for yourself?"
WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN TO ME???
Not sure if they're amazed that Fluttershy stood up...
...or they think the Dragon is a decent actor.
"There, there. No need to cry."
Score one for Fluttershy!
"Why are you laughing?! That awful dragon is back!"
"Pinkie Pie, you scared me!"
"Not everypony can be as brave as me..."
