'The entire Canterlot attack was stupid from the start. I don't know what Chrysalis was thinking! Except of course I know exactly what she was thinking. She was thinking that Shining Armor was delicious, and she could drink him and drink him and his love never seemed to die, and being Cadence was so sweet that she could do anything she wanted and everypony would adore her for it. Everything would just fall into place and we'd live in the sun and it would be the ponies who were hunted and spat on and had to come begging to an owner to survive. With Shining Armor burning her up like a fire, how could anything go wrong?'
