After putting on the Element of Magic, Sunset Shimmer was shown just how much of a monster she really is. But that wasn't all the Elements did to her.

Sunset has now been forced to serve penance by answering any question truthfully and by doing anything asked of her, whether she wants to or not.

And she really doesn't want to.

Until all of the hatred in her heart is gone, Sunset is at the whim of her peers, unbeknownst to them of course. Can her new "friends" help her down the road to redemption?

If not, there's always that other Twilight Sparkle she keeps running into.

Chapters (43)

When the girls discovered magic at Camp Everfree, Sunset Shimmer was the first to embrace it. But now, the little bit of magic she got is just reminding her of how much she's lost. And as people get more and more desperate, you can never tell when they're going to do something incredibly stupid.

Chapters (1)

Set in the Equestria Girls universe!

When Twilight Sparkle (the scientist one, not the otherdimensional pony princess) predicts an oncoming magical calamity, it's up to Sunset Shimmer and her friends to stop it!

Now, they've got just two days to cover hundreds and hundreds of miles to get to exactly where the dimensional incursion is going to take place.

Good thing it's Spring Break. Road Trip!

Chapters (8)

This story is a sequel to BY THE BLACK AXE OF NIGHTMARE MOON!

After an incident regarding Twilight's browser history, the truth comes out: she's far, far nerdier than her friends ever thought. With her secret found out, Twilight Sparkle must introduce her friends to the wide, strange world of Live Action Role Playing Games.

At least Sunset seems kind of interested?

Chapters (6)

Rainbow Dash is usually a very take-charge kind of person, but even she can recognize when a problem won't be solved by going really fast, beating the crap out of something, or being the best at literally every sport. She's humble like that.

In this case, the problem is stationary, crapless, and unresponsive to even the most obscure athletic gear. That means it's time to call in the experts.

(Note: The following story isn't set at Camp Everfree, but this is the best picture I could get of these three without anyone else in frame.)

Chapters (1)

It has been a few days since the end of the Friendship Games, and the once-rival groups of Canterlot High and Crystal Prep are now getting along just fine. For Twilight, a former student of the latter, things have been going well. However, during a picnic with the two groups, she soon discovers, to her shock, that her one-time demonic transformation might have earned her a bit more popularity than she would have guessed.
