Renamed Aurora and Corona, respectively, the sisters are forced to adapt to their new lives quickly in order to deal with a grave new threat.

  • Big Sister Instinct: Aurora has this towards Corona, even though the two are twins.
  • By "No", I Mean "Yes": Corona, when asked how her flying lessons went:
    Corona: Um... awesome! Yeah, they were great. I, uh... Well, I’m still having trouble taking off... and staying airborne... and, uh... landing... (beat) Okay, so I’m not really doing all that great.
  • The Chosen One: Aurora and Corona.
  • Deer in the Headlights: Aurora initially has this reaction when confronted with what appears to be Nightmare Moon.
