Outside of the mundane tasks of cleaning up her messes and sending letters via your brand new fire breath ability, she is giving you the opportunity to help research any pony related topic of your choosing. With what is essentially a blank check, you have complete royal permission to travel, investigate, and study a single topic of your choosing in Equestria.

In the comments below, decide on a topic.
