Clover Cordelia is a freshmare student at the Cambridle Academy of Magic who is determined to become a great sorceress.
Star Swirl the Bearded is a legendary wizard who is in need of an apprentice.
Clover will soon discover that having great magical power might not actually make you easier to be around, and tends to attract unusual difficulties...
It's nothing Star Swirl can't take care of, provided he and Clover manage to resist killing each other first.
Takes place after, but updates alongside, The Crown of Night.
On the 8th of October 2013 (in the middle of the night here in Europe) The Education of Clover the Clever got featured on Equestria Daily \o/ Overnight, I got 20 favorites, and closing in on another 20 since then, and I'm just sitting here astonished and unsure how to respond. Thank you everyone who has come over and looked at it from the feature, thank you everyone who read and commented beforehand, and thank you Amacita, the EQD pre-reader who looked at and recommended the story!
