For the last month, Rainbow and Adagio have been clashing in the school corridors, battling with insults, wit and innuendo. Each time, Rainbow has lost the exchange, and ended up outsmarted and embarrassed in front of everyone. But today, she’s determined that won’t happen. She has a plan, and she’ll win at last!

She's excited to tell her friends about it, knowing it'll be the most awesome thing she's done since the Friendship Games, but mentioning that doesn’t go down as well as she expects. Why is everyone else so reluctant to talk about those events? They might be friends with the Shadowbolts now, but why would mentioning beating them in the Games make her friends so uncomfortable?

This story takes place sometime after Friendship Games, and contains spoilers for it. It probably works better sometime before Legend Of Everfree, but since that wouldn’t really affect the plot either way, it doesn’t matter, and there aren’t any spoilers here for that film. I've tagged the Shadowbolts because they and Sci-Twi come up a lot in conversation, but they don't appear.

There's the very occasional bit of slightly stronger language than you might find in the show, as the title might suggest, but I'd hardly call it NSFW. The title, on that note, fits the story better with the British English meaning of the word.
