After the events of the Storm King's attempted takeover, Equestria has seen a period of blissful peace. Due to this, the Mane Six, as well as other ponies, have settled down. Most have gotten married and had families, inherited family businesses, and relished in the peace. Now, however, threats are becoming more and more abundant again, as monsters thought to be contained grow restless. The torch must be passed on, and it is time for the next generation to take up the mantle of protectors of Equestria. These six ponies, along with two new element-bearers, must learn to overcome trial and tribulation as a group. Can they neutralize the threat? Or will Equestria be forever doomed to misery?
