Yours Truly p2From: Princess Celestia
I would like to thank you for the gift of socks you sent my sister and I. I hear it's become quite the fashion trend, so congratulations! Honestly, just between you and me, it's a nice change for fashion to look good rather than incomprehensible.
Would that this letter could be entirely good news, however. You no doubt remember Spike, Twilight Sparkle's draconic assistant? And that last year he entered a century sleep so that he could grow up? Unfortunately, word has reached me that Diamond Dogs have tunnelled into the cave where he was resting and have stolen most of the diamonds he was sleeping on. If those diamonds are not returned, he might wake up early.
And I know what you're thinking, but that would not be a good thing. Spike needs to sleep and he needs to grow. It wouldn't be fair to deny him the chance to become an adult.
There is nopony better suited than you to this task. Please consider it.

Dear Princess Celestia,
This is the first day of being on my own. And so far, it doesn't feel any different. I keep expecting to hear the sound of Pinkie Pie bouncing down the street, or look up into the sky and see a rainbow. I keep thinking I can smell apples. And that I'm not seeing my friends right now doesn't bother me because I'm so sure they'll be by later. Even though I know they won't.
It's connected in my mind but not in my heart. And all the goodbye parties in the world can't change that.
Isn't that a good thing, though? Even though I'm leaving Ponyville I don't feel like I'm leaving my friends behind. I feel like they're still a part of me. That distance alone isn't going to keep us apart. We've been through too much for that to happen, for this to be the end.
It's going to be hard writing everything out by hoof again. I've grown far too used to having Spike with me - wait, that's not right. Surely there's no such thing as
