  • Badass Bureaucrat: One of the earliest signs of Twilight Velvet's skills is an off-hand mention of her getting the paperwork in order for Trixie and Sumac.
  • Cuteness Proximity: All the adults have this response to Sumac and Pebble's Sleep Cute.
  • But Now I Must Go: Trixie intends to leave Sumac in Ponyville, where he can get the education and care he deserves. Fortunately, see I Choose To Stay, below.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Discussed with Trixie's story. Percheron's Heroic Sacrifice inspired the villagers around him to fight harder and win.

  • Hates Baths: Sumac really doesn't like getting washed.

  • I Gave My Word: Big Mac can't fix the wagon, so instead rebuilds it from the ground up.
  • Leave the Two Lovebirds Alone: Non-romantic variant. After a particularly heartbreaking argument and make-up, the other characters leave Sumac and Trixie alone.
  • The Magic Goes Away: The eponymous Hypothesis is a variation, Sumac hypothesises that the amount of magic in the world is fixed, and as unicorn populations rise, it's spread increasingly thin, making each individual unicorn weaker, and the statistics back him up.
  • The Plan: Most of the story turns out to be one by Applejack, of all ponies. Apples look after their own.

  • Sleep Cute: Sumac and Pebble, after she is forced to apologise to him and decides to help out with his project.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Pebble reckons that getting Pinkie to forgive her for breaking a Pinkie Promise is impossible, even compared to earning her mother's forgiveness, something she claims takes an entire geological epoch.
