Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer both have different flavors of inner struggle. Twilight with her fear of losing control of her powers, and Sunset with her tendency to act on her anger. Neither of them have had the life experience to properly deal with these things, leading to both of them having been consumed by their Inner Demons once before. Now that they're back on track, neither of them wants it to happen again.

Their friendship is will keep them going.

This story takes place in the same universe as The Sun Never Sets, though it doesn't require knowledge of said story to understand. This is just a short story that gives a small bit of background on the versions of Sunset and SciTwi introduced in that universe. That being said, I guess this can still be enjoyed as a cute little friendship story if you go in blind.

(Art by CrimsonRose97)

Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle have different ways of going about things. Expressing themselves, thinking about life, getting around town, and talking to each other. One day, after a study session at a cafe, Twilight shows Sunset a weird and cool thing she made, and it leads them to appreciate these ways that they're different.

This story takes place in the same universe as The Sun Never Sets, though it doesn't require knowledge of said story to understand. This is just a short story that gives a small bit of background on the versions of Sunset and SciTwi introduced in that universe. Out of context, it's just another little slice of life story from a slightly alternate Sunset and Twilight.

Chapters (1)

After a fight with Celestia, Sunset flees through a magic mirror into a different world.

Without her horn, any direction in her life, the inability to simply go back home and surrounded by strangers, she has to go on a journey of self discovery to find meaning in her life as dark forces begin to threaten the world she resides in.

But, at least she still has her magic and plenty of instruction manuals to learn more from.

Chapters (22)

In her successful attempt to stop Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer ends up in the universe of The Batman. Now, with the help of her mentor Zatanna Zatara and two best friends—Barbara Gordon and Pamela Isley—she has to figure out her place in a brand new world.

My personal thanks go to Pen Stroke and Burraku_Pansa for helping me bounce this idea around and suffering through my naming process.

Chapters (29)

After the debacle of the Storm King's short-lived invasion and the fall of Canterlot, the former attacker, Fizzlepop Berrytwist (Commander Tempest Shadow), muses that the princesses' ability to fight was sorely lacking. Considering that she pretty much took them all down in seconds.

In order to prevent such an abysmal display in the future she has, through a few contacts around Princess Twilight, recruited the aid of a combat master who should be able to teach four princesses avoid such embarrassments in the future...

...Or kill them trying.

Congratulations on choosing this, the first edition of A Brief History of Equestria!

For far to long, the vitally important role of educating our foals of the history of our nation has been delegated to Folk Lore and word of mouth, while the realities of the past have been documented, stored and educated only to the elite. It is therefore the intent of myself, the Royal Historical Society, and the Royal Ministry of Education to provide the common pony with access to a document that offers as full a history of Equestria as can be practically provided, which is the tome you now hold in your hooves.

Keep in mind that no single book cannot replace a properly structured and scheduled classroom on the subject, and while an Encyclopedia format would give a much more comprehensive narrative, the copious amounts of information would render the exercise counter-productive. As such, this book can only give what amounts to a summary of an abridged version at best. It is my hope that everypony who reads this gains an insatiable thirst for more. Hopefully with further editions, more knowledge can be included, along with a collection of tie-in texts that focus more closely on specific areas of interest.

-Twilight Sparkle, M.B.A., on behalf of the Royal Ministry of Education.

To the ponies of the Equestrian Civil Service, it is twenty-four hours of chaos, politics, weaponized dessert, politics, underhooved manipulation of media, politics, and things batrachian and tentacular. Who said bureaucracy isn't exciting?
