Rarity catches it in telekinesis and, after some fidgeting, opens a hole in the glass with her rapier and puts it in what looks like a burner, careful to close the door well. After jumping to us and away from the generator, her horn sparks several times with magic before light escapes from the edges of the door, a sound similar to that of a welder coming from it. The screen alights more brightly almost immediately, text scrolling unusually fast. By the time the flame dies down, it reads: >CHARGE LEVEL: 42% >WATER LEVEL ON GENERATOR LOW. "Wait me here."
