It’s been so long! The war has been over for almost a year now, but you still spend all your time in your “secret library.” How are your wings? It took me the longest time to get used to my new horn when I got it. Hopefully, it isn’t the same for you.
We received news of the founding of Ponyville. You probably knew this already, but the farmers living with you there used to be guards at the castle! They retired before the war even started, and I think they lived somewhere near The Great Falls, but Shiny thinks they moved near you out of instinct. “Once a royal guard, always a royal guard,” he says.
Shining and I would have loved to be there, but we are still dealing with the aftermath of the war. According to Aunt Celestia, not all changelings have left Equestria. I thought they would have, considering we defeated their queen, but there’s a possibility some of them wished to make a life here—even if in secret. Despite having been allied to the changeling queen, Discord is being little to no help in the matter. I only hope we’ll be able to find them and reach a peaceful solution.
Everypony here misses you terribly, of course—especially Shiny, but you did not hear that from me. I know Aunt Celestia visited you last week. How did that go? She told me she enchanted your books so they would never be damaged. She also thinks you’ve forgotten you’re not a filly anymore. How strongly did you “joyfully throw” yourself at her to have almost tumbled her down, silly?
Aunt Luna might be visiting soon. Her… relationship with Aunt Celestia is a bit strained on her side. A nearby village organized another “sun celebration” for Aunt Celestia, and even if she would never admit it, you can imagine how Aunt Luna felt about that. It used to be less hard on her when you were here, but now that her favorite night-owl is gone, she has no one to remind her how beautiful her night is by stargazing all the time.
Shiny and I are trying to see if we can stop by Ponyville next month. I hear you’ve been eating very good apple pies. Don’t eat too much, though, or you’ll get a tummy ache!
Hope to see you soon,
