    Random Headcanon: Sunburst and Sunset are the Same Pony, Pre- and Post-Transition

    I've always liked the idea that Sunburst and Sunset are related somehow. This headcanon fills in some gaps in EQG canon while playing off that idea. I'm not sure I believe it myself, but it's a fun idea.

    Any Deaf/HoH folks on here?

Don't have a reddit account... If I remember, Lauren Faust said that Zecora was supposed to be a Zebra from Earth that got teleported to Equestria by the Everfree and gained sapience from Equestria.

The HiE we really deserve!
