Twilight finds the sports section of an ancient newspaper. The pony on the front page looks strangely familiar...
I think you, or someone else might of, idk, wrote a story about Celestia growing up in school? And how she was always bigger and another pony she had a crush on asked her to join the hoofball team. This sounds like the second chapter of that story, kind of. (you have to many stories for me to look though them to see if you were the one who wrote it)
What is the wide world of sports is this?
*edit* That was good.
hmmm, so short though...
Who ? That tall, awkward schoolfilly ?
I'm trying to determine if this is related to that other story you had so, so long ago.
i like dis
>>18333221833322 Here Comes the Sun is what you're thinking of.
>>18333611833361 Maybe related, maybe not. I just liked the idea.
LOL yes, I think I remember you talking about and/or posting art for this a while back!
Celestia as a football player? Alright I'll bite... *many minutes later after three rereads and weird looks from Paladin's headcanon Celestia* Huh... interesting, short of course but interesting. Yes I could see her play football, a Princess has to have something to do out side of classes and politics. Well done my friend.
I've been waiting for this, you have no idea.
iI'm utterly confused right now.
Of course if Cely did hoofball, then Lulu did ice hockey!
Good story, just kind of hard to follow in the short word-length though. My mind skipped over Celestia's interception, so I was kinda confused since Hoofington was already on offence and then I had to re-read and all that. Just a nitpick, I guess.
Pffft. That was funny. You pump out fics like crazy.
And at the end of the day Twilight gives a grand total of ZERO, count em, ZERO fucks.
>>18342281834228 Not a single fuck was given that day.
And the number of fucks given was zero, no more, no less. Zero is the number of fucks given. One is one too many, two is two too much. Five is right out!
Teenage Celestia! Never gets old. And I see what you did with the announcers there. Clever. Very clever
we don't see much teenage Celestia. Still I was expecting something more, this story was a little flat
>>18351751835175 And thy post did make mrmayortheiv grin and he did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu...
>>18365751836575 GET ON WITH IT!!!
Well then, I now know that being in a sports bar does have an actual effect upon people.
This fic, I like it!
(This is the part where many would expect me to smash the story on the ground and demand another, but that is quite rude, impossible- digital information and whatnot- and would destroy the story)
Suffice to say that I would be quite happy if another story like this, perhaps in the same "universe" as it, was produced, but will also remain quite content indeed if this stays the bit of randomness which it is.
you should make a sequel where Twilight asks Celestia about it that would be priceless!
Unexpected, but quite interesting.
It's okay. Have a thumb.
Oh, you mean like this?
>>26373842637384 Exactly, my friend.
Was she just a unicorn in this story? If she was a princess then they would be forced to put her on the team and the cover image doesn`t show her with wings. Also, her name was sunshine, perhaps that was her name before she became the alicorn she is today.
>>26930062693006 Or maybe the wings were just under her uniform. She couldn't use them while playing anyway.
Perhaps I intentionally wrote this to leave that point ambiguous.
Er, or perhaps I forgot.
It would be a good idea for the wings to be in the suit, imagine a wing getting caught during a play, ouch.
clip and clop?
flim and flam.
Hilarious if she actually knew that Twilight was there.
This was still cute the second time I read it.
Saw this story at the side bar whenever I look at your page/blog/whathaveyou.
I'm so glad I finally read it.

You really might to change that picture, considering that it essentially spoils the entire twist ending from the get-go. (Okay, I admit, I'm about a year late with this comment...)
>>39900733990073 Over on TVTropes, this story is actually used as an example of cover art spoiling the story.
>>39908093990809 I added that there, actually.
I actually like it this way. The viewer knowing something the characters don't. The excitement waiting to see the characters reaction to the news. I'm sure there are literary terms for this.
In any case it's a great story. I can't say I understand most of the sports involved but it's fun to read none the less.
>>39900733990073 I don't really see how the picture spoils the ending, Twilight and Celestia are the only characters tagged in the story.
