Cute Impact

Mane Six sans Twilight Sparkle: Three... two... one... Happy New Moon!
Gummy: [blows party horn]
Rainbow Dash: These snacks are stellar, Pinkie!
[door opens]
Twilight Sparkle: [grunting]
Applejack: You be careful now. That thing looks like it's about— Whoa!
Rainbow Dash: [grunts]
Twilight Sparkle: Watch out!
Rarity: [slow motion scream]
[magic sounds]
Rarity: Ooh, magnifique!
Fluttershy: Wow, Twilight. You're always here when we need you.
Twilight Sparkle: And tonight, I'm here with my latest creation – the celestiascope!
Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash: Uh...
[light switch clicks]
Rest of Mane Six: Hmm... [gasp]
Twilight Sparkle: It's a portable planetarium. I like to use it to study the stars and unlock the secrets of the cosmos. Plus... it's preeeetty!
Rest of Mane Six: [sounds of awe]
Pinkie Pie: This is so exciting! I don't even know how I'll sleep tonight!
Twilight Sparkle: So who wants an astronomy lesson?
Rest of Mane Six: [snoring]
Twilight Sparkle: That's okay. Now I can dig into doing a deep scan of the skies.
Twilight Sparkle: Whoa. [gasps] Hmm. That's not right. Nothing ever shines in that area. It's just a void. It's probably nothing, Twilight. [laughs nervously, gasps] It's really there! And it's headed straight for Ponyville! [whimpers]
[rooster crows]
Applejack: Equestria to Twilight. Come in, Twilight!
Pinkie Pie: I know what will wake her up. Pancakes! Heavy on the marmalade. The impact of flavors will leave a citrusy crater in her mouth.
Twilight Sparkle: "Impact"?! "Crater"?!
[thunder strikes]
Twilight Sparkle: What is it?!
Fluttershy: What is what?
Twilight Sparkle: Nothing! Gotta study! No time to sleep! Just study! Sleep! Study!
Applejack: What's gotten into her?
Pinkie Pie: Not pancakes.
Twilight Sparkle: There's gotta be something here on strange pink lights in the sky! Now, where's the "Impending Doom/Ponyville Historical Records" section?! Hmm...
Twilight Sparkle: Why are you all here?
Applejack: Uh... it's a library. We came to check out books. And check on you.
Twilight Sparkle: It was great seeing you all, but I have to get back to work.
Fluttershy: Are you sure you don't need help investigating something?
Rarity: If there's a mystery afoot, I'm your mare. I lead the library's "Dashing Dame Detective Story Hour" twice a week. Thrice, if they'll have me.
[door closes]
Rarity: They haven't yet.
Twilight Sparkle: No! This is really something I should do on my own.
Twilight Sparkle: Hmm...
Rainbow Dash: Ah... [muffled sneeze]
Twilight Sparkle: Huh?
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy: [nervous laugh]
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
Rarity: Hmm... [giggles]
Twilight Sparkle: [clears throat]
Rarity: [gasps]
Applejack: [grunts]
Pinkie Pie: [grunts]
Rest of Mane Six: [groan]
Pinkie Pie: Hmm?
Twilight Sparkle: No! Don't read—!
Pinkie Pie: "The End of Equestria, Volume 16"?
Twilight Sparkle: ...that.
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Pinkie Pie: I know, right? I always thought there were only fifteen volumes.
Rarity: No pancakes at breakfast? Refusing time with your friends? "The End of Equestria"?
Rainbow Dash: Yeah! We all know something's up!
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Twilight Sparkle: [sighs] It's true. Something is up. In the sky. Last night, while viewing the star charts on the celestiascope, I saw something I couldn't explain.
Applejack: Why couldn't you just tell us?
Twilight Sparkle: I didn't want to worry anypony. But it's a lot harder than I thought to take this on alone. I should've told you.
Fluttershy: You can always tell us. Our friendship speaks volumes.
Pinkie Pie: Yeah! Sixteen of 'em!
Applejack: Well, we better get to readin'.
Twilight Sparkle: There it is! That's the strange pink light! [reading] "When the new moon wanes on the eve of Indigo Summer" – that's a once-in-a-lifetime event – "the Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet will return."
Rarity: [reading] "Fear not its mysterious radiance, as it will bring pure joy."
Pinkie Pie: [reading] "Before it arrives, a current of sugary crystal morsels will float by"?!
Rainbow Dash: [reading] "The sky will become a pastel, multicolored light show."
Applejack: [reading] "And it's traditional to celebrate its passin' by throwin' a festival."
Fluttershy: [reading] "So everypony who witnesses the comet will have one special wish come true." Twilight, you've made an amazing discovery!
Twilight Sparkle: We made this discovery together! [yawns] There's truly no greater problem-solving power than friendship.
Pinkie Pie: Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
Rest of Mane Six: Shhhh!
Twilight Sparkle: [snoring]
[air fizzles]
Pinkie Pie: Whoa!

The Crystal Capturing Contraption

[keyboard clacking]
Fluttershy: Pbbbbblt! Peter Pony picked a pack of perfect peonies. A pack of perfect peonies Peter Pony picked.
Rarity: Are we filming? Oh, get my good side. Hah! They're all my good sides! Now, whatever are you up to, Flutter-loves?
Fluttershy: Oh! Hi, Rarity. After the success of my YouHoof unboxing video, I want to follow in your hoofsteps and be a reporter. And I have just the story – the Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet!
Rarity: Stupendous! But this is just a topic. You still need a way in. An entree point. [giggles] I know! Interview all of us! Ask us what we think of the comet. Be a real pony on the scene!
Fluttershy: Oh. I don't like the sound of that. I love it!
Rainbow Dash: [grunting]
Fluttershy: I'm here with athlete extraordinaire Rainbow Dash. What do you think about the Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet?
Rainbow Dash: It'll be cool.
Fluttershy: Aah!
[pinball sounds]
Fluttershy: [giggles]
Fluttershy: So, Twilight, it was you that discovered the comet. Uh, hello?
[printing sounds]
Fluttershy: [giggles] She's speechless.
Applejack: I'm more focused on growin' season. Comets don't grow on trees. But apples do. And they need tendin' to.
[wheelbarrow squeaking]
Rarity: Comets are out of this world. But what's in this world is my new one-pony show, Fiddler on the Hoof! I play a musician who's afraid of heights, but I wind up on this roof, and I—
[door closes]
Rarity: Awww.
Fluttershy: [sighs] Hopefully, good old Pinkie Pie gives me some A-plus material.
[wrench ratcheting]
Fluttershy: Pinkie, the Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet is coming. Tell the world what you think about it.
Pinkie Pie: I was nervicited – which is a mixture of nervous and excited – but now I'm strebebelief! That's stressed beyond belief!
Fluttershy: Go on.
Pinkie Pie: [sighs] I love you, Fluttershy, but I don't have time! A current carrying Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet crystals will fly over Equestria tonight! These crystals are an incredibly rare baking ingredient!
Pinkie Pie: [narrating] I went back to the library and discovered the last time the comet appeared, only one tiny blob of crystals was captured, and they were immediately used to make the most delicious dessert in Ponyville history!
Pinkie Pie: I need those crystals! They'll take my treats to new extremes!
Fluttershy: This is just the kind of interview I need! Let's get those crystals!
Pinkie Pie: I would, but I'm worried my crystal-catching contraption isn't gonna cut it!
Fluttershy: Hmm. Maybe I can help you, and you can help me. Tell me, what do you think it'd be like to get caught in a current of cotton candy crystals?
Pinkie Pie: Wha...? I-I told you, I don't have time for... The crystals are coming! I'm gonna get to the top of Mt. Volcanope to get as close as possible!
[door opens]
[door closes]
Fluttershy: [sighs]
Pinkie Pie: [grunting] It's not strong enough! And I'm not close enough! If only I was in the crystal current! Ugh! But how could I be in the—? [gasps] Fluttershy! I need you!
Fluttershy: These crystals sure do sparkle like a mane that just got washed. And it's now that I'd cut away to an interview about what makes the crystals so special. But sadly, this pony was unable to—
Pinkie Pie: [panting] Flutter... need... to talk!
Fluttershy: No. I need to talk to you, Pinkie. I let the pressure to get the perfect interview get in the way of being a good friend. I'm sorry.
Pinkie Pie: No, I need to apologize. Those cotton candy crystals clouded my judgment, and I didn't stop to really listen to you. I'm sorry.
Pinkie Pie: There'll be time for hugs later! I know a way I can get my crystals and you can really be a reporter pony on the scene if we work together.
[exciting music]
Pinkie Pie: You ready?
Fluttershy: Mm-hmm.
Pinkie Pie: Fluttershy, grow! Fluttershy, grow!
Pinkie Pie: [laughs] The treats I'll bake with these!
Fluttershy: [distorted] Oh, the amazing news I'll report!
Pinkie Pie: And if it weren't for the help of a great reporter and even greater friend, today would've been a bust.
Fluttershy: No day is a bust when friends work together. And that is the story of the Cosmic Cotton Candy Comet, the crystal current, and the capturing contraption. Back to you, Karen.
Karen: That was our new pony on the scene Fluttershy!
Herd Happily: In other news – pasta. What is it?
