She always wanted to be a track star like her hero, Rainbow Dash. While out running one day, her foot fell in an unseen gopher hole, breaking her ankle in several places. Try as she might, pulling it out only broke the skin, and the dirt caused an infection. By the time she was transported to the nearest hospital, the foot had to be amputated.
Sure. Then Belle & Bloom get to have a wacky team-up with Spider-Colt as they collaborate with Zecora on a counter-agent for that regenerative draconic extract which started this whole mess. Meanwhile, Scootizard & the Insatiable Spulk(C) hit the town for lulz, sapphires & mayhem. Quality two-parter, there.
Anyways... Featherweight, mild-mannered colt, bitten by a magic spider, now uses his new powers as the Amazing Spider-Pony!
We join our friendly neighborhood Spider-Pony at his day job at the Ponyville Bugle looking for a scoop!
"You want a story?" taunted Featherweight's evil boss, Diamond Tiara. "Okay... get me a coffee!"
"Tiara, that's not news!" Featherweight protested, "It's just coffee!"
Diamond Tiara was enraged at this question of her demands. "Oh yeah?" she shouted, "[Buy some apples!] you!" Channeling the dark, terrible powers of the Old Gods of Journalism, she telekinetically grabbed a paper and changed the headline with her burning gaze. Smiling wickedly, she turned the paper back to Featherweight, who read the headline:
Extra! Extra! Featherweight Gets Diamond Tiara a Giant [Buy some apples!] Coffee
"[Buy some apples!] you!" the evil editor laughed, "Get me a [Buy some apples!] coffee!"
