Bighoof Walking

Twilight Sparkle: Thanks for letting me test the new critter-sighting app on your tablet, Fluttershy. Your cloud data should be here any moment.
Rainbow Dash: [laughs] Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Cloud security is such a fluffy gig.
Twilight Sparkle: Okay, installation complete.
Fluttershy: Great! With this, I'll earn the Rare Animal Sighting Badge in no time!
Pinkie Pie: What kind of animal are you after? The world's slowest cheetah?
Rest of Mane Six: [sounds of awe]
Pinkie Pie: A pouchless kangaroo?
Rest of Mane Six: Awww...
Fluttershy: Oh, those are common compared to the one I'm after. Bighoof!
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Twilight Sparkle: I'm freaking out!
Rainbow Dash: You're kidding!
Rarity: Heavens, no!
[tea kettle whistling]
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Applejack: I've heard a few pony tales about Bighoof. [sips] Stories say it's a huge, territorial creature with big antlers. And if it catches you there, it'll transform you into a Bighoof yourself!
Rest of Mane Six: Uh... [screams]
Twilight Sparkle: Hmmm. Looking it up on Marepedia. And according to the "scaryravioli" website, everything Applejack says is true.
Fluttershy: But they also say that it has a great singing voice.
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, yeah?
Twilight Sparkle: This is the only known recording. Listen.
[low, dissonant groaning]
Mane Six: [whimper]
Fluttershy: So majestic.
Rarity: Majestic, that is, until it captures you! Leaving nothing but its giant, ghastly hoofprints!
Twilight Sparkle: Are you sure about this, Fluttershy? It might not want to be found.
Fluttershy: What's the worst that could happen?
Pinkie Pie: Uh, it pony-naps us and traps us in the forest and makes us listen to its lonely song forever?! It's new-age elevator music!
Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, and Rarity: [scream]
Rainbow Dash: [screams] Sounds like an adventure to me!
Twilight Sparkle: I can't believe we're doing this.
Rainbow Dash: It's not like anypony's gonna get hurt. And look how happy Fluttershy is.
Fluttershy: Everypony, keep an eye out!
[bushes rustle]
Fluttershy: [gasps] Hmm. [screams]
[crows cawing]
Fluttershy: Phew.
Rarity: [gasps] I see her! She's breathtaking! Oh, wait, that's me. Well, I-I stand by my opinion. Anypony see anything?
Rainbow Dash: Huh?
[wind whistles]
Applejack: [gulps]
Rainbow Dash and Applejack: [scream]
Rainbow Dash: See? Nothing to be afraid of, Applejack.
Applejack: Doesn't mean we shouldn't be careful.
Twilight Sparkle: Hey, did you see where Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie went?
Rainbow Dash: Yeah, they're right over there.
Rarity: Oh, no! They've been hoof-napped by Bighoof!
Twilight Sparkle: Let's not jump to conclusions. There's a perfectly logical explanation for— [gasps] Hoofprints!
Applejack: [gulps] M-Maybe they... just got lost?
Rainbow Dash: [whimpers] L-Let's see where these tracks go.
Twilight Sparkle: What if they have been taken?! And now they're trapped in the woods forever?!
Rarity: Darling, is it me... or have all the animals disappeared?
Twilight Sparkle: I think we might have to call in some experts.
Rarity: What if we can't find them again?
Rainbow Dash: W-We just need to keep our wits about us.
Applejack and Rainbow Dash: [gasp]
[bushes rustle]
Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle: [scream]
Rarity: Bighoof!
Rainbow Dash: [growls]
Applejack: Don't go!
Rainbow Dash: I have to! If I don't come back, tell the world my story!
Rarity, Applejack, and Twilight Sparkle: [gasp]
Rainbow Dash: [yells]
Fluttershy: [grunting]
Rainbow Dash: [groans]
Fluttershy: [grunting] Ugh!
Pinkie Pie: Ugh!
Fluttershy: [groans]
Rainbow Dash: Ah! It's even worse than I thought! Oh. Fluttershy? We thought you were Bighoof.
Fluttershy: Sorry. I was just trying to help Pinkie Pie get unstuck from this tree.
Twilight Sparkle: And how did Pinkie Pie get stuck in a tree?
Pinkie Pie: I don't want to talk about it. There was a balloon, a stick... It all happened so fast!
Fluttershy: Sorry we scared you guys.
Applejack: [chuckles] Don't be. We're just happy you're both safe.
Twilight Sparkle: So, Bighoof didn't take you?
Fluttershy: No. [sighs] Guess I'm not getting my Rare Sighting Badge today.
Twilight Sparkle: Aww. Maybe next time.
Fluttershy: It's okay. We still got to go for a fun hike and... [gasps] take a selfie!
[camera clicks]
Mane Six: [gasp, scream]

The Fluttershy Effect

Rainbow Dash: It's going long!
Owlowiscious: [squawks]
Rainbow Dash: [sighs, laughs] All the time in the world.
Pinkie Pie: [panting] Rainbow Dash! Oh, thank hoofness I found you!
Rainbow Dash: Uh-oh. Is something wrong, Pinkie?
Pinkie Pie: I am in dire need of help... throwing a party – the Trail Trotters' Trail Mixer – for Fluttershy.
Rainbow Dash: But aren't we just pretending to be a Trail Trotters troop?
Pinkie Pie: Yup. But she thinks we're supposed to throw a party to attract new ponies to join. So now we have to pretend to do that by actually doing it. And fast!
Rainbow Dash: More like "in a dash"! You know, 'cause I'm so fast that I can control time? So fast that even I—
Pinkie Pie: No time! Rarity's finishing up the decorations, and Applejack's gathering butterflies in the orchard for... well, you'll see! And Twi has a delivery for you to make!
Rainbow Dash: Chillax. I'll head right over to Twilight's.
Rainbow Dash: Ooh. Uhhhh, what now? A new Wonderbolt game is dropping today?! [deep breath]
[owl hoots]
Rainbow Dash: [laughs] Top score! Wait. When did it become dark? Oh, no. I was supposed to deliver that thingamabob to what's-her-face!
Twilight Sparkle: [whimpering]
[doors open]
Twilight Sparkle: Where have you been?! The party is in an hour, and Rarity still needs the Replitron 5000 to duplicate her decorations!
Rainbow Dash: I'll get it there in no time.
Twilight Sparkle: Just be very careful. This is a really powerful device.
Rainbow Dash: Got it. Powerful device.
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
[door opens]
Rainbow Dash: Waiting for me?
Rarity: Darling... this is my "waiting for you" face! [squeak] Device, please.
Rainbow Dash: One decorator duplicator coming up.
[shooting sounds]
Applejack: Whoa.
Rarity: Magnifique!
[pounding on door]
Fluttershy: [muffled] Is this a push or a pull?
Applejack: [gasps] Fluttershy's here! There aren't enough butterflies!
Rarity: And the decor still needs to be hung! Oh, that's it! The party's ruined!
Rainbow Dash: Not... just... yet!
[rapid clicking]
[shooting sounds]
Rarity and Applejack: [scream]
[shooting sounds]
[electricity fizzling]
Rainbow Dash: Whoa! What's happening?! [screams, grunts]
[electronic music]
Rainbow Dash: Rarity? Applejack? Pinkie?
Pinkie Pie Hologram: Welcome to Monarchville.
Rainbow Dash: [screams]
Pinkie Pie Hologram: Home of the original Sugarcube Corner. All hail the butterflies.
Rainbow Dash: Wait. I'm not in Ponyville anymore? Where am I? Some sort of dystopian future?
Pinkie Pie Hologram: Exactly. After the disastrous party – renamed the "Party of Disaster" – all parties were banned.
Rainbow Dash: [laughs] Okay. Very funny joke.
Pinkie Pie Hologram: I am not programmed to joke. That fateful day, monarch butterflies were duplicated so much that they blotted out the sky.
Rainbow Dash: You mean... this was my fault? Tank! You're here!
Tank: [through voice box] Yes.
Rainbow Dash: And you talk?!
Tank: [through voice box] I have been awaiting your return, Rainbow Dash. It was foretold by Twilight Sparkle.
Rainbow Dash: Listen, buddy. I've got to find my way back to fix this. I've got to find a way out of here!
Tank: [through voice box] Take your time, Rainbow Dash.
Rainbow Dash: Taking time is what got me into this mess!
Tank: [through voice box] You must learn the way of the slowpoke. Not every problem is settled through speed alone. Sometimes you must stop, focus, and sit still.
Rainbow Dash: [groans] No time!
Tank: [through voice box] Stop... focus... be still.
Rainbow Dash: You're right. I didn't take the time I needed to start with. I wound up rushing into this pickle. So, to get out of it... [deep breath] I need to stop... focus... be still.
Pinkie Pie: [panting] Rainbow Dash! Oh, thank hoofness I found you!
Rainbow Dash: Thank hoofness I found you! You ever thought about doing some silver accents in your mane?
Pinkie Pie: There's no time!
Rainbow Dash: Stop... focus... be still. [deep breath] Now let's throw a party! [gasps, screams]
