Silverstream: (excited) Oh! Thank you tempest! (about to lunge towards tempest for a hug)
Tempest: (uses her broken telekinesis to stop Silverstream's hug and pushes her off) nuh uh uh! you want to hug something go hug a tree, we're here to work!
Silverstream: (hugs a tree)
Tempest: I uh wasn't serious about that last part
SS: But this medal lets me turn into a seapony, it lets me visit my family and play with Terramar. It's irreplaceable.
T: Indubitably. That's why I want to destroy it. I need to see what you're willing to sacrifice to get what you want. And think about how many lives you could protect with your power. How many seaponies suffer from the same nightmares as you? I can help you put an end to it, but first you have to pay a price.
This would have made SS's subsequent decision feel a lot stronger.
