aires163: So what exactly is it that they want you to do Coppercog?
You proceed to help the pony build the thing for Queen Chrysalis. You slowly learn the basics of his technology, and eventually are even able to suggest improvements in his techniques. With lots of hard work and dedication, you manage to make the thing work in a record time, learn a lot about each other’s species, and even build a strong relationship.
This all of course takes several months, as engineering montages and loves at first sight are dumb concepts, for both science and personal relationships require a lot of time to develop and cannot be rushed.
