Twilight studied for the princess in a big castle, where she was student number 427.
Student number 427's studies were simple:
She sat at a desk in library 427, and read books on the shelves.
Orders came to her through a dragon by her desk, telling her what books to read, how long to study them, and in what order.
This is what student 427 did, every day, of every month, of every year.
And although others might have considered it solely reading, Twilight relished every moment that the orders came in, as though she had been born exactly for this job.
And Twilight...was happy.
And then one day, something very peculiar happened.
Something that would forever change Twilight...
Something that she would never quite forget...
