Shimmer: Hard to describe it, really. There were three races in Equestria; Pegasus, Unicorn, and Earth pony. I was a unicorn; we were more of the brains (and a bit of the ego) of the three. Magic back home was a common thing. So as a unicorn, picking up things that I can’t normally do without hands was still easy. Spells on the other hand were pretty hard to do. It took us days to master an expert spell. I was a student for gifted unicorns so I learned fast.
