PlotEdit

After a way of meeting with the ponies, a jurassic quarreling between dislikers and lovers of My Little Pony in both the fanbase and the show, and a dark energy familiar with the villains they faced before, Aaron and Twilight team up with 2 of his family members, his cousin Adonis and his step-niece, Christina and some of his friends who like MLP and others who are best with him as well as 5 of the Mane Six to start a resistance of Equestria to save mankind and ponykind, and to keep the hate away from a show they love for the sake of love between a boy and a girl without changing anyone's opinions.
