The first-ever SunLight Shipping Collaboration Story!


After Sunset Shimmer brings Sci-Twi’s strange magic-absorbing amulet back to Equestria, Princess Twilight Sparkle has a brilliant idea. If they combine the amulet and the magic of the portal, the two of them could hop between worlds at the push of a button!

Who better to test out this fantastic new technology than two of the greatest minds in all of Equestria?

They probably should have calibrated it first.


SunLight Sliders is the result of the Sunset Shimmer community's epic three-month collaboration project, where each author had three days to write a 500-1500 chapter in the ongoing saga of Sunset and Twilight Voyaging through the multiverse! Every author picks up where the last one left off... giving us one crazy journey in space and time!

Now, Princess Sunset Shimmer dons the legendary Solstice Raiment and the Flareblades of the Sunmother in a desperate quest to save the glittering heavens and the love of her life.

Because if the stars die... her world will soon follow.

Stuck as an aide to a bunch of second-year students at Gifted Unicorns, Sunset Shimmer thought picking one to tutor might be entertaining… and maybe advance her plans for the mirror and her eventual ascension.

This 'Moon Dancer' filly is just a means to an end, after all.

So why can’t Sunset sleep after Moon Dancer storms out on her? Why are Princess Celestia and Professor Polish so concerned about her?

But most importantly, why is Sunset starting to doubt herself?

This was all part of the plan. Right?

This story is a sequel to Princess Celestia: A Brief History

When Celestia first laid eyes on Twilight Sparkle, she knew she’d seen her somewhere before. Though she’d managed to hide this from both Sunset and Twilight, after they departed for the evening, Celestia needed to be sure.

With her trusted aide Raven at her side and a dangerous threat on the horizon, Celestia heads to the offices of the Equestrian Secret Service to investigate her suspicions.

Because if she’s right, the possibility of eternal night is the least of Equestria’s concerns.

This story is a sequel to The Application of Unified Harmony Magics

After the incredibly awkward reunion last night, Sunset is less than eager about her promise to introduce Twilight Sparkle to Princess Celestia. Maybe it would help if Twilight could go more than five minutes without a panic-driven ramble.

Despite her doubts, Sunset decides to do her best. But between a bowl of ice water, Philomena’s antics and Celestia’s sly smile, Sunset knows this isn’t going to be easy.

Still, Twilight probably could have handled it better.

After a particularly annoying surge while tutoring Moon Dancer in her advanced telekinetic studies, Sunset takes refuge in the teacher’s lounge. Though she was only looking for a cup of scalding hot tea, Sunset finds a pony walking down the same path she once walked, giving her an opportunity she’s never had before…
