    Pinkie has always been the bane of Twilight’s logical psyche, though some good stories have come out of her antics. For instance, when Pinkie receives a mysterious button from a cousin, Twilight must save the town form whatever it does, and keep Pinkie from pressing it again and again. (Twilight and Pinkie are, in fact foils. You don’t need to be an antagonist to be a foil.)

    Science and magic, though vastly different from each other, both represent a fundamental facet of pony civilization. The supernatural, however, is easily regarded as fiction. In all of the tomes and scrolls of Equestrian history, there has never been any evidence that has proved the existence of things like clairvoyance, extrasensory perception, or even ghosts and apparitions. At least, none that have been recorded. When a strange incident at the Canterlot Archives occurs involving floating books and a white flash of light, Princess Twilight Sparkle volunteers to investigate after the authorities are baffled. Unfortunately, her initial findings are ignored and scorned. She vehemently believes that the incident was the work of a ghost. Refusing to back down, she formally establishes the Paranormal Research and Containment Committee in order to fully understand the nature behind these bizarre incidents.
