I know I haven't posted anything here for quite a while, but school's really been taking almost all of my time. Anyway the Season 3 premiere was awesome! So much new content! And I'm glad they brought back Shining Armor and Cadance.
Through rain, through snow, through heat, through gloom I'll save the world from certain doom With magic, love, and family My team will earn it's victory Equestria is safe in princely hooves With a warrior's heart my courage proves First guard then prince and then came king With harmonious cadence my heart will sing The story of my life, my kin, my friends And the wife I'll love to the very end.
