The Midnight is Here

School with a Princess

Midnight loved school. That is, this school. She had applied when she was three, and two years later, she was ahead of even Twilight. Yes, Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns was the place to be. And now she had memorized almost every spell they taught. Celestia was now giving her personal lessons.


"Now, lift it up... higher... slowly, now... STEADY...careful, careful..." Celestia, after teaching Midnight every other spell she knew, had finally agreed to teach the latter how to raise the sun, moon, and move the stars.
"Like... this?" Midnight asked, raising the sun almost perfectly once it was in the sky where she could see it. She hadn't done too well with it beneath the horizon, but seeing the sun made it easier.
Celestia stared open mouthed. "Y-yes, actually."She was completely struck with shock and surprise.
"What is it? What's wrong?"
"N-nothing. It's just... have you ever done this before?" After receiving a shake of the head from Midnight, she continued.
"B-but then- Then how- You shouldn't-"
"Tia, I mean Princess Celestia, it was actually easy." She hesitated, then added, " Can I call you Tia? I mean, I'm only wondering."
