"Welcome to the Carousel Boutique," Rarity greeted, "where every style is chic, unique, and manifique."
I was sitting with my back to the door, so I didn't see who it was at first. That all changed when they responded to Rarity.
"Um, I'm looking for Art Colter," a mare's voice I recognized said, "I was told he would probably be here."
I swiveled around in my chair to face the mare who was searching for me. She was a brown-colored Earth pony,
with a slightly darker brown mane. If there was any doubt in my mind who this was, that all went away when I saw her
cutie mark, an old-style camera, and the similar one slung around her neck.

Sapphire, Aspi and Haru, were all knocked out... thus leaving Elena as the only Pokémon standing.
The Ampharos stood up straighter, the blows she'd taken from the onslaught of Haru obviously hurting her.

"Did I do good?"
"You did very good, AerBear."
