This is how Rarity finds a Scraplet goes in Scrapheap.

[Ratchet looks at his friends]

Optimus Prime: Arcee, Rainbow Dash, Twilight, and I will search for any clue that will explain the origin of our arctic find.

Ratchet: Only until your sensors go off. Remember, staying in the arctic too long can cause the possibility of being frozen and thus your death.

[Optimus Prime, Twilight, Arcee, and Rainbow Dash go through the Groundbridge]

Ratchet: Transport complete.

[The Groundbridge controls fry]

Ratchet: By the Allspark.

Applejack: So, what do y'all think we should do?

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: Uh, video-games?)

Rarity: Sure.

Ratchet: Bulkhead, Bumblebee! Here, now!

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: Aw, man!)

Bulkhead: You can't boss us around just because the boss is out.

Ratchet: I need some extra servos.

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: Oh, brother.)

Ratchet: And I also need some heavy lifting. The Groundbridge is down.

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: But can't we just take it apart and rebuild it?)

Ratchet: Optimus, Twilight, Arcee, and Rainbow Dash made it through just fine it's bringing them back that concerns me. Now remove those panels. Chop chop.

[Rarity hears something]

Rarity: Whoa!

[Rarity falls and sees a Scraplet]

Rarity: Why, hello there, little one. Where did you come from?

[Scraplet just blinks]

[Rarity gets up]

Rarity: Hello, little one.

[The Scraplet comes over]

[Rarity brings out a screw]

Rarity: Ready? [throws it] Fetch!

[The Scraplet goes after the screw and eats it]

Rarity: Whoa.

[The Scraplet rubs its head against Rarity's hoof]

Rarity: Aww.

Ratchet: We most definitely have a problem. But what could've caused this?

[Lights flicker on and off]

Bulkhead: Or that?

Ratchet: We can't be certain until we find out.

Rarity: Hey, robo-darlings! Look what I found.

Ratchet: We're busy! [screams]

[Bulkhead, Bumblebee, and Smokescreen aim at the Scraplet]

Applejack: What's with you guys?

Bulkhead: Scraplet. Scraplet!

Rarity: What's a Scraplet?

Ratchet: The most dangerous vermin ever to crawl upon the face of Cybertron.

Applejack: This? [laughs] Are you kidding me?

Pinkie Pie: You're giant robots.

Fluttershy: Scrappy here is teeny.

Smokescreen: You have no idea the damage that thing can do.

Rarity: Like what?

[The Scraplet looks at the Autobots and lunges at Bumblebee, first chewing on his leg, then his arm but Rarity beats it to death with a metal bar held by her magic]

Applejack: Easy there, Rarity.

Pinkie Pie: Whoa. I did not see that coming.

Fluttershy: Me neither.

Rarity: I'm sorry, Bumblebee.

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: It's okay, Rarity. You don't need to apologize.)

Rarity: Is he gonna be okay?

Ratchet: Maybe, maybe not.

Smokescreen: Now do you believe me?

Bulkhead: All Scraplets do is dismantle machinery and eat anything metal. Especially living metal.

Applejack: Well, bug squashed. Game over. Right?

Ratchet: No. When it comes to Scraplets, there's never just one. And I fear I know how they got in here.

[They go to the pod]

Ratchet: It's a trap. A Scraplet trap.

Bulkhead: Uh, an empty Scraplet trap.

Ratchet: Most likely it was ejected into space eons ago. Only to wind up in the arctic where the temperature kept them in stasis.

Applejack: Well, how are we going to deal with this?

Ratchet: I don't know.

[Meanwhile, in the arctic, Optimus and Twilight are climbing a cliff]

Optimus Prime: Arcee, Rainbow Dash, what's your status?

Rainbow Dash: Arcee's sensor's going off.

Arcee: Guess we should call for pick up before things get worse.

Optimus Prime: Optimus to base. Core temperature readings have reached the blue zone. Prepare to activate Groundbridge.

[There is nothing but static. Meanwhile]

Ratchet: Ratchet to Optimus, do you read? We have a situation! [static] The Scraplets have gotten into the commlink system! If we don't eradicate these creatures immediately, they will reduce this entire base to a scrapheap!

Bulkhead: Well, I say we bug out of here and let them keep it!

Bumblebee: [beeps] (translation: But what if that's not enough for them to scarve down? What if they start devouring the town?)

Ratchet: Evacuation is not an option. If we don't get the Groundbridge back online stat, Optimus, Twilight, Arcee, and Rainbow Dash will perish.

Pinkie Pie: They will?

Applejack: Bulkhead, you never run.

Bulkhead: Applejack, you haven't seen a swarm of these things devour a bot. I have. They pick you apart from the inside-out, going for the small juicy bits first, fuse by fuse, circuit by circuit till there's nothing left. And I mean NOTHING. Not even your optics.

Pinkie Pie: You have to let us help.

Rarity: We're not made of metal.

Applejack: Yeah. Those Scraplets can't hurt us.

Ratchet: Then we'll just have to split into groups.

Rarity: OK good. So we pair off. One bot, one pony.

Fluttershy: I'll watch your back while you repair the Groundbridge, Ratchet.

Appejack: And we go on a bug hunt.

[They nod]

[In the arctic]

Optimus Prime: Optimus to base, do you read?

[Arcee collapses and Optimus helps her up]

Arcee: Are you sure a nice long drive wouldn't help? I hear that Canterlot's beautiful this time of year.

Optimus Prime: The nearest temperate climate is too distant, Arcee. Attempting to reach it would expand too much energy. Until Ratchet sends for us -- And he will -- Our best option would be to seek shelter and insulate ourselves.

[They hear Shining Armor's voice in the distance]

Shining Armor: [distant] Twilight! Rainbow Dash! Optimus! Arcee!

Twilight Sparkle: Shining Armor?!

[Shining Armor appears wearing a black scarf over his mouth and a mask which he uses his magic to remove]

Twilight Sparkle: [runs to him and hugs him] What are you doing here?

[Shining Armor points at Optimus and Arcee]

Optimus Prime: Shining Armor. I presume you are Twilight's brother, Cadance's husband and Captain of the Canterlot Royal Guard.

Shining Armor: Correct. You're Optimus and Arcee. I can see you are pretty chilled, get it?

Optimus Prime: We seek shelter, Shining Armor. Do you know where we can stay?

Shining Armor: The Crystal Empire's not far. I'll take you there so you can warm up. Come on.

[They follow him]

[They enter the Crystal Empire where Princess Cadance is waiting]

Princess Cadance: I was expecting you, Twilight.

Twilight Sparkle: Why?

[She takes them to the castle]

Optimus Prime: My name is Optimus Prime, you're majesty.

Arcee: And I am Arcee.

Princess Cadance: Yeah. Shining Armor told we had some visitors coming.

Optimus Prime: We came here seeking shelter.

Arcee: From the bad, cold weather out there.

Princess Cadance: Well, you're glad to come in and warm up anytime you like.
