1: The Beginning

"Bye, Mom!" Twilight Sparkle called out as she headed out the door.
Twilight Velvet (a.k.a. Velvet) smiled. Her 6 year old filly was always in a rush to get out the door. She to go with her daughter to school, but Velvet had to stay and watch the new foal. It was a girl, and, of course, a unicorn like the rest of the family. She looked more like Twilight Sparkle than anyone else in the family, so she decided to give a corresponding name. Twilight... A time right around Dusk... No, not girly enough... It starts and ends the night... Right before Dawn! No, not that. Way too common... Aha! She is a slightly darker purple... Yes, I think I'll do Midnight. Now. Sparkle, Sparkle... Sparkle... Glitter? No. Shimmer? NO. NO no no no. Too much like that student Celestia told me she once taught... So... Glimmer? No. Maybe--WAIT. Yes, Glimmer. Midnight Glimmer. Perfect.
