Twi and 'Tia are Best Ponies.
Yeah, my favorite ponies.
It seems as if Twilight Sparkle knows all there is about the night sky. During a fateful astronomy exam, however, she learns that sometimes the most amazing things to learn come from her teachers, and not from a star chart.
This is a little tribute to my 3 favorite Ponies and to all the team of MLP:FIM, those guys totally rule.More Less
(or more like a sidequel)
A socially awkward bookworm devoted to math and science. A carefree jester determined to prove her leader capabilities. When they took the challenge of becoming Princesses of Equestria everything in their lives changed forever. Did they changed in the inside too? What happened when the pressure of being rulers became too much? What went through their minds as they went through the hardest thousand years of their lives?
An experimental writing that tries to look only inside the minds and through the eyes of the most powerful beings of Equestria as I guessed them. My headcanon of the events that lead to Nightmare Moon's banishment, and a big sister's struggle to get her sibling back.
Thanks to my great friend PhilomenaSage for her edition skills.
This is a work in progress, therefore any comments, corrections and critiques are more than welcomed. =)

Life and WTNB. · 10:41pm
Hi, I´ve been around reading, but haven't done too much writing and I'm sad and sorry for that.
It started when I submitted Within The Night Bringers to EQD, they said that it had too much tell and not show, and other mistakes. I tried real hard to change chapter one and adapt it to what they asked for, until I noticed the story had stopped being what I wanted it to be, and that depressed me a bit.
By then college had started and, as many others on the site I was attacked by the devilish real life. College has been horrible for several reasons, like changes on the structure of my university course. Then my editor got really busy and couldn't work with me anymore, and I'm too shy to ask people on the internet. Though I know I have the help of some of my other friends, it's not the same without a person with the knowledge she has.
Later on, when a friend from a forum showed me a story he had submitted to EQD and had been rejected for the same reasons, I noticed something: EQD is too obsessed with the show no tell. If it is indeed a real good way of writing a story I don't think is the alpha and omega of it all. My friend had written a beautiful passage of ancient Equestria History in a format that made it feel like a History book, I found it charming as a prologue; but EQD won´t take it because it was “show no tell”. Obviously EQD's norms and standards don´t apply to every work. Now I don't feel bad about not being able to change my story for them, cause is my story, is not perfect and it doesn´t need to be, it just had to be fun for me to write.
Thanks to EQD´s pre-reader advise however, I managed to improve the first chapter of WTNB. Instead of the full rewriting I tried at first I did just few minor changes, but better is better. If you want to reread it, go ahead.
I am currently on a really needed vacation period, sadly I´m suffering of some huge writers block and I still lack an editor. However, I never leave stuff incomplete so I assure the few people that liked WTNB, it will be finished in time, I don't know when but it will.
As a little bonus I finally decided to publish The Perfect Night Sky here at FimFiction. As I said before it is part of the universe of WTNB, or maybe is the other way around, since The Perfect Night Sky was the origin of the backstory that then became WTNB. I hope people get to read it again if they liked it, and maybe some new readers will share some fresh opinions.
I also have many stories in my head, but the sole idea of writing them down and all that implies is hard. I'll still give it a try to smaller projects, why not? Nothing to lose.
Thanks to everypony, and wish me luck.
