''Hey, being small-framed is fairly useful. I fit into smaller spaces better. And I don't stand out as much. Anyway, now that I think about it, I think that the second possibility makes more sense. If I had put myself into stasis, I would've made myself an easy prey. Locking myself into a younger form, well, means that I would never grow as tall as a normal Alicorn, which would result in me not standing out. Which means Discord, or anypony else who feels like killing an Alicorn, wouldn't have recognized me.'' Running Gear said.
