I also noticed that Solve does not need the Thread. This also works:

Plot[Evaluate[y /. {
Solve[{x, y} == {2 t, -t^2}, {y, t}],
Solve[{x, y} == {6 + 2 t, -t^2}, {y, t}]}],
{x, -4, 10},
Axes -> {True, False},
Ticks -> None,
PlotStyle ->
{{Thick, Cyan}, {Thick, Green}},
PlotRange -> {-4, 0},
AspectRatio -> 0.285714,
Filling -> -4]
