Princess Celestia: "It sounds like you're all learning so much from each other... "

After the events of Friendship is Magic, part 2, Princess Celestia gives Twilight Sparkle a new mission: to study the "magic of friendship" and report her discoveries. At the end of each episode, Twilight or her friends relay a report on friendship based on the events of the story. The report is usually dictated by Twilight and transcribed by Spike, who then magically sends it by breathing green-colored fire on the scrolls. At times when Princess Celestia happens to be around, Twilight makes the report in person.

"Spike, take a note, please. 'I, Princess Celestia, hereby decree that the unicorn Twilight Sparkle shall take on a new mission for Equestria. She must continue to study the magic of friendship. She must report to me her findings from her new home... in Ponyville.'"
— Princess Celestia

Starting with Lesson Zero, Princess Celestia exempts Twilight from writing a report every week and asks that she and her friends report their findings only when they occur.

"From this day forth, I would like you all to report to me your findings on the magic of friendship when, and only when, you happen to discover them."
— Princess Celestia

The third season features only two friendship reports while the remaining lessons are presented through dialogue, and after the events of Magical Mystery Cure, Twilight and her friends stop sending reports to Princess Celestia altogether. In season four, they log some of their lessons in a shared journal following Twilight's suggestion in Castle Mane-ia.

"I've just thought of a great idea! Why don't we keep a journal, just like the royal pony sisters? [...] That way, we can learn from each other! And maybe some day, other ponies will read it and learn something, too!"
— Twilight Sparkle

From season five onward, all friendship lessons are delivered through song or spoken dialogue.

After the events of My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Sunset Shimmer begins writing friendship reports to Twilight from the human world.

Dear Princess Celestia,
This summer I learned that my friends and I can make a big difference in people's lives! If you want to see what we've done together, you should visit our friends at @generationOn

Live Show[]

Dear Princess Celestia,
I've learned that sometimes the way we expect things to go isn't always the way they'll end up going. Life never seems to work that way. So the real challenge is to welcome new approaches in getting things done. If we can let go of what we thought was the right way of doing things, and instead choose to work together to find a new way to achieve our goals, well, anything is possible! Especially with the help of all your friends.


Rain, Rain Go Away![]

Princess Celestia: Did you learn anything about friendship today, Twilight Sparkle?
Twilight Sparkle: Yes, I learned it's good to listen to your friends! If you don't, things can get messy!
Twilight Sparkle: Rainbow Dash knew best all along!
Princess Celestia: That's right!

Der Stern der Winterträume[]

Twilight Sparkle: Jetzt verstehe ich! Der Stern schenkt mit seiner schönen Musik schöne Träume!
Applejack: Die werde ich haben!
Twilight Sparkle: Das muss ich morgen früh gleich Prinzessin Celestia schreiben...

Mach mal Pause![]

Applejack: Zu jedem guten Training gehören Pausen.
Rainbow Dash: Aber ich bin nicht müde oder so.
Doch beim Blick in den Spiegel ...
Rainbow Dash: Oh! Ich sehe aus wie ein Wrack.
Pinkie Pie: Nicht nur diese Fitness-Brühe trinken!
Applejack: Vielleicht solltest du mal wieder etwas essen.
Rainbow Dash: Lecker! Ich glaube, ihr habt recht.
Endlich kann die Wanderung beginnen ...
Pinkie Pie: Wie schön es hier im Wald ist!
Twilight Sparkle: So romantisch!
Applejack: Und wie gefällt es dir, Rainbow Dash?
Rainbow Dash: Es ist super!
Applejack: Und morgen kannst du ganz frisch trainieren.
Spike: Sag ich doch! Es geht nichts über eine Pause!
