"Twilight!?" I try to wiggle off his grasp,
"Yes, Twilight." He gives me a confused look, "What's wrong?"
"Let me go!"
"Applejack?" He puts me back on the floor gently, and I notice he's wearing silk gloves the same color as his scales, the tips of his claws covered in what looks like rubber. "You... are afraid?" He pauses for a second, "What's wrong?"

"I don't know who you are that's what." I put some distance between us, still not sure of how to take this dragon.
"Applejack... you are Applejack, right?" He leans to the side to see my cutie mark, "You can't not be. What happened?"
"Wouldn't I love to know that, mister. What about first things first?"
"First--" He stops, "Uh, I am Spike? Spike the dragon?"
"And you are saying I am Applejack."
"Yes."
"You don't know a weird unicorn gal that comes off flowers, don't you?"
"Cadance can do that." He says distractedly, "But, uh, no...?" He pauses for a moment, as if going me time to ask anything else, "But where's Twilight? Er, purple alicorn, bit snarky, can be a hooffull at times, starburst cutie mark?"
"No alicorn in here." I wonder if it's a good idea to tell him, but decide he's been nice enough up until now. "There IS a purple unicorn, thought.."
"An unicorn?" He facepalms, "Oh, by the love of... she hates it so much when that happens."
"Uh, two first door up the ramp, at the other side of the crevice?" I point at the door.
"Right, thanks," He runs out of the room, using all four legs and bouncing against the wall rather than turning.
Well that was something. I give another look to the scribbling on the floor near where the dragon might've been before and grab a stick about as thick as a pen from the trees to test the strength of the waterfall.
The stick a few milimeters immediately, and after ten or twenty seconds it breaks in two.

I steel myself for the cold and heave against the door, having to apply a surprising amount of force before the heavy bronze door opens with a scratch of metal against stone.
The room, which I enter shuddering from the cold and dripping water, is dominated by what looks like some sort of distiller. A soft rumbling is coming from inside it, interrupted every few seconds by a jarring clash of broken machinery.

I walk to the telescope and spin the gold wheel on it while sticking an eye to the lens. Nothing for now...
Oh.
I remove the cap covering the other side and into it again. The bricks are oddly nitid, weren't nearby objects supposed to look blurry?
I turn the wheel, feeling curious about whether it might be the adjustment.

They are braziers mounted on the wall

I copy the patterns the the sheet of paper, filling the space that's left.
The machine keeps rumbling and clanking, emitting some heat, and I open it out of curiosity.
A monitor with a keyboard under it flickers to life, the image taking almost a minute to form.
