After one night of drunken passion, scientific research, and magic, Sunset and Twilight wake up to discover they built an android. Upon effectively becoming parents, they name their artificial child, Dawn.

But on top of being unprepared for parenthood, Sunset and Twilight learn that Dawn might not be as well put together as they thought.

All magic fades eventually. What happens to Dawn when her spark goes out? While she explores the ups and downs of friendship and love, her mothers struggle with questions of whether or not she's real, and how much are they willing to sacrifice for their artificial daughter?

Concept inspired by Crydius.

Thanks to Novel Idea, Justice3442, and Oroboro .

Sunset didn't understand the big deal about spring in the human world. It wasn't any more magical than spring in Equestria, it just required less help to get going. Humans, however, considered it the season of rebirth, and while she didn't understand it she could at least accept it.

Thankfully, Rarity was patient enough to explain it to her.

Being able to see possible futures makes Minuette's life pretty easy. Being able to roll back time when something goes wrong makes life even easier.

Both powers should make asking Sunset Shimmer out on a date the easiest thing ever.

She shouldn't have tried on a Tuesday.

This story has been fully revamped from its original FimFiction version.

Ten years after the Friendship Games ended in disaster, Sunset Shimmer’s self-imposed vigil over Canterlot keeps its survivors relatively safe. But one day a stranger comes to town looking to unearth a secret that Sunset had buried in the past...

There's a problem at the Pie Quarry. One that Sunset Shimmer is uniquely equipped to handle.

Dealing with magic is easy. Dealing with cute quiet girls is too, but to solve this one, Sunset is going to need to dig deep. Real deep.

Chapters (1)

Getting rejected by Sunset seems like a pretty good reason for Twilight to hole herself up in her room for three days. But when Rarity comes asking for help to develop a website for Carousel Boutique, Twilight can't ignore a friend.

Both of them may find they have something to learn about rejection, how to deal with it, and if a friendship really can become something more intimate.

I don’t know why I’m writing this. I don’t know if anypony will ever read it, or if there is anypony left who could ever read it. Some might see it as a way to keep my sanity in this place, but that implies that I have any sanity left to lose. I’m not so sure about that right now. I’m not sure about anything anymore.

My name is Sunset Shimmer, and I am the Princess of Equestria.

Cover edit (adding the words and editing so it look like a story cover) gifted to me on Christmas by Novel Idea

Edit (26/12/2016): In my haste to get this ready by Christmas, I neglected to mention that Warming A Hearth in Another World by Flutterpriest was one of the inspirations behind this tale. I always try to give credits where they're due but this one slipped through the cracks, sorry!

There were five of them.

Ponies of extraordinary ability and unfaltering faith. In the name of Celestia, they performed feats that bordered on the impossible and crossed into the absurd. They called themselves knights, brothers and sisters sworn to the light. Their enemies called them butchers, merciless terrors that would stop at nothing to achieve their goals. Their stories called them heroes, a bright ray of hope in a troubled time.

Their goddess called them mad.

Set a few years after the banishment of Nightmare Moon.
