The comic starts with a Princess Twilight and Spike noticing weird changes in the weather. As she gather her friends to investigate, they find out that the normal course of time has been completely torn apart: elements from the past and future are now mixed together and nothing makes sense anymore. At first, they suspect Discord, but things turn out to be more complicated that they expected. In fact, a mysterious character appears to be the source of all this chaos... who can it be?
