Sweet Tale has good friends, a good job, and a good home — it’s just a pity he can’t enjoy a good birthday as well.
With all of his friends too busy to celebrate with him, will Sweet Tale actually have a good day? Or will he simply wish for it to end so that he can repress the memory of the worst birthday ever?
Geo and Twilight Sparkle: Husband and wife. Father and mother. Prince and Princess.
They have been through so much in their time together, and their love has never been stronger. So what is the best gift they can get each other when it comes to Hearts and Hooves Day, especially when they both agree that having each other is good enough?
Twilight thinks she has the answer — a spell that will allow the couple to swap bodies for a day. After all, nothing says “I love you” like seeing the world from your partner’s point of view.
Prince Geo has been dispatched to the Gryphon lands on royal business while his wife, Princess Twilight Sparkle, has been left behind in Canterlot. Also going with the Prince are Spike, who will be the couple’s primary source of communication and Geo’s friend John, who is only going along for a change of scenery.
While Geo is attending to his duty, a letter from Twilight arrives — which explains in clear detail what she is going to expect from her husband when he gets home. Spike and John, seizing the chance to have some fun, decide to write a letter back to the desperate mare… which results in all three males getting a surprise.
Equestria is in the grip of a sugar shortage that has led to strict rationing everywhere. For Dilly Mix, who is a self-confessed sugar addict, this is a bad sign. With her supply of sweets dwindling, she hits on an idea to get some more — using an ancient legend that once brought mayhem to Ponyville.
Her plan complete, Dilly finds herself with a guest in tow who is pretty much her opposite in every way. Not only will the two of them drive each other to the very brink of insanity, they will also come to realise that there are far sweeter things in life than sugar…
Every morning without fail, the mail is delivered to the various citizens of Canterlot. Among them are Geo and Twilight Sparkle, a Prince and Princess with a habit of getting themselves into strange situations.
Which is probably just as well, because this particular batch of letters is unlike any they’ve ever seen before.
With the help of some of their friends, they begin picking their way through the unknown. But who’d have thought that reading the mail could have the potential to be so dangerous?
