Twilight Sparkle's imagination as a child was unbelievable, probably due to all those books. Which also make up the amazing Fort Book, Twilightopia's first stronghold against the country of Armor! With the help of Captain Smartypants and Private Cadence, General Twilight defends her fort against her brother's advancing army of one!

A tale of Twi's childhood told from her point of view.

Inspired by the cover picture.

Such a nice little story, you sir must write more of these :yay:

Cuteness overload. I'm not sure if i actually survived reading this.

I wrote you a heavy metal song:


#6 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

That's cute.:heart:

#7 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Aw,  how adorable.  Very nicely done!  Could use a cleaner edit, but not bad at all!  I think I would've closed it off in Cadence or Shining's PoV though--the sudden break from imagination to reality was a little stilted...or perhaps that ending could just be smoothed out some more.

But I liked it anyways!  Thumbs up and faved.  Fantastic little work.

Adorable. In such a land of debauchery and depravity as this, a golden light shines through. I... I think I feel...

Oh my God, I have feelings, now. See what you did to me!?

(It was awesome, had the full vibe of the show and just lovely innocence. Warms my crotchety old heart.)

Long reign General Twili! Remember the Battle of the Book!

#12 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

And then, my heart.  For sheer cuteness factor, extremely well-played.  Have a bunch of happy icons.

#31 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

D'awwwwwwww :twilightsmile:

we need more stories like this.

#32 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

That was adorable.  :twilightblush:  There are a few minor formatting issues (whenever a new character starts speaking there needs to be an indent or a new paragraph or something), but for the most part I was too distracted by the cuteness to really care.  Definite fave and thumbs up.  Keep up the good work.  :rainbowkiss:

#33 · 122w, 1d ago · 2 · ·

you know your story is good when the comments are longer than the story itself

#34 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

there definately needs to be more short d'aww stories like this

#35 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

This has the nomnom stamp of approval :3  

#36 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

I'm gonna get diabetes


#37 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Faust darn it, you blew up my daaaw 'o' meter, oh well, this story is just to good huh. All joking aside, this story really is great, a good light hearted break from Aegis Shield (who remains one of my favorite authors, no offense meant to him.) thanks for boosting my spirits! Adding to my faves.:pinkiehappy:



#38 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Yay! Very adorable, well done.

Please keep writing, I'll keep reading!

#39 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·


Best song ever!

As for the story... :rainbowkiss:

#40 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Little Twily is Awesome Twily! :heart:

#41 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

I think that story gave me DIABEETUS


#42 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Short, sweet, and adorable. Good job sir. :heart:

#43 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

this was a really cute story!

but besides that, almost every time you misspelled soldier as "solider".

#44 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Was so adorable!:pinkiehappy:

#45 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

didn't even read it yet, but the premise is too cute to pass up! will comment about it soon further soon.

#46 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

I love fics like this.  Simple and cute.

#47 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Warning! D'aaawww has been detected! Critical system failure imminent! *internet explodes*

But yeah, this was pretty buckin' cute. Screw Patton or Grant or whoever: Twilight is Best General. The story was a little rough; some editing and rewording might be a good idea. But it worked fine as the short, funny cutefest it was trying to be. Thumbs up, because moats are cool. :twilightsmile:

#48 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Annnnnnd, now I have diabetes like my dad. Thank you internet for giving me these medical conditions through adorableness.

#49 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·


This is overly adorable and cute, and Twilights version is better than mine. No, I'm not gonna copy this d'aww story.

#50 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

I had trouble starting to read this fic, as I was scared of what the levels of cuteness could do, for example give me diabetes. After reading it, I can definitely say that the diabetes is worth it.
