The story starts out with Twilight Sparkle waking up the day after Applejack's birthday party. She discovers she is no longer human, but rather, a pony. She must then go and find the reason for her transformation.

After Twilight leaves her house to start her quest she meets Pinkie Pie who has no idea what a human is. Pinkie tells Twilight that Fluttershy might know and the two go to find her. Fluttershy doesn't know either and flees crying when Twilight scolds her for not remembering. The pair then go to see Applejack at Sweet Apple Acres, but she has never heard of a human either.

It is at this point that Twilight has a mental breakdown and the trio goes to see Rainbow Dash and Rarity. Just like the rest, they have no idea what a human is, and ask Twilight if she is feeling okay. This slumps Twilight into depression as she begins to accept that she may be staying in Equestria.

The story's climax occurs when the six battle a hydra that is threatening the town. Twilight gets eaten and wakes up from her nightmare, fully human again. It ends with Twilight changing her computer's wallpaper from ponies to butterflies.
