At Dream Castle, the Little Ponies are preparing a festival to celebrate the first day of Spring. From the Volcano of Gloom, the evil witch Hydia watches the event via her cauldron and, disgusted by the frivolity, tells her daughters that they must ruin it. Hydia's daughters, Draggle and Reeka, are inexperienced at causing mischief and fail utterly at ruining the festival. They return to the Volcano of Gloom in disgrace, where Witch Hydia presents a better plan - they'll make Smooze. The sisters collect a series of disgusting ingredients, but neglect to obtain the Phlume, the prospect of which terrifies them. The spell seems to work regardless, creating a pool of sentient purple lava that gleefully buries Ponyland. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Draggle: Why, Reeka dear, you look a little pale! I fear you aren't feeling at your best! I hope you haven't come down with a chill... Perhaps you need to take a little rest!
Reeka: What about all the work we have to do? You're not going to do it all alone, are you?
Draggle: Why, Reeka darling, what are sisters for? Not to worry, not to worry! I'll do the dirty work! I'll handle all the dirty work! You go relax in your room! I'll collect the muck and mire; I wouldn't ...
