Sol Umbrae - Dream Bolt

Twilight Sparkle is sent to a new world to face an old threat, only to find that this new world shares a lot more history with Equestria than she suspected.

  • ...



Twilight sat on a beach chair, overlooking as the ponies helped in the reconstruction of Blaze’s costal city as she sipped her tea. Beside her, Blaze sipped her own tea, giving a small smile.

“I’m glad we met, Twilight.” Blaze stated. “You reunited me with Silver, and you have been a wonderful friend.”

“And I’ve learned a great deal about friendship.” Twilight replied.

“As have I.” Blaze agreed. She sighed. “I used to be very… aloof. I would often work on my own, because I feared that my friends would get hurt. But you showed me that together, friends are stronger.”

“Sounds like you have a letter to write to Princess Celestia.” Twilight stated with a smile.

Blaze gave a small smile. “I… would like that.”

Twilight turned. “Marine, take a letter.”

Marine pulled out a notebook, some glitter glue, and a box of crayons.

“Er, I think I’ll write this on my own.” Blaze said with an awkward grin. “I’ll get my own writing materials. Marine, why don’t you go help with the construction?”
Blaze went inside as Marine cheerfully dashed off. Blaze came out shortly with some paper and a pen. She sat down, took a sip of her tea, and began to write.

Dear Princess Celestia

I used to be much like your former student and my new friend, Twilight Sparkle. I didn’t realize just how important friendship could be. I thought that friends were something only regular people had, and that people with big responsibilities, like me, should face those responsibilities alone.

But now I realize that I was only making my job harder and myself weaker. Through Silver, Marine, Sonic, Cream, and now Twilight Sparkle, I have learned that my friends can be as much a help to me as I can be to them. Together, we can overcome the odds. Alone, we have weaknesses, but if we have friends, our friends can cover those weaknesses and help us when we are down, and we can do the same for them.

I used to think that I had to save everyone myself, but now I realize that everybody need help from time to time. That’s why we need friends, especially when you’re a princess like Twilight or I. My friends help me to be a better ruler to my people, and a better person. With my friends, I can better lead and protect my kingdom, for together, we are stronger than anyone else can be on their own.

Your avatar and newest student,

Princess Blaze

“Hey, Twilight!” Applejack called up. “Y’all ready to help with those houses?”

“Be right there, Applejack!” Twilight called down. She turned towards Blaze. “Are you finished yet?”

“Just finished.“ Blaze said as she rolled up the letter. Her hand lit up with green fire, and the letter disappeared in flames.
“Since I don’t have a dragon, Celestia taught me how to mimic dragon fire.” Blaze explained with a grin.

“Perhaps we could be pen pals!” Twilight exclaimed. “I would love to write to you, and help you with any of the future assignments Princess Celestia gives you.”

A graceful white unicorn mare walked up. She bowed to Twilight and Blaze before speaking.
“Princess Blaze, your first assignments are here.” she stated, levitating a large pile of books over to Blaze.

“Thank you.” Blaze stated with a nod. “Put them inside. I’ll study them later.”

“But shouldn’t you get to work on the Princess’s assignment right away?” Twilight asked in surprise.

Blaze shook her head, and rolled up her sleeves. “If I have learned anything about the princess, it is that she would prefer me to put my studies into action. And right now, our friends need help rebuilding this town.”
She leapt down from the balcony, gracefully propelling herself from rooftop to rooftop.

Twilight grinned. Spreading her wings, she soared into the sky, flying alongside Blaze towards the fields of construction.

With everyone so busy, no one noticed the graceful white mare as she trotted into the rebuilt tower of Blaze’s palace. As soon as she was out of sight, a pair of insect-like wings sprouted from her back, and her graceful white body became black and twisted, with a draping green mane and legs with holes through them.

“A new world… one with strong bonds of love.” she hissed as she soared into the sky. “Love for their heroes… especially the hedgehog.”

A grin crossed her face, and her green, cat-like eyes narrowed greedily.

“It sounds like the perfect feeding ground for my children.”

The End…?

Author's Note:

And so ends the story of Sol Umbrae! (Can't have an MLP adventure finish without a letter to Princess Celestia.) Thank you all for reading, and to anypony who gives me up-votes and favorites!

Until next story, this is Dream Bolt saying,

"Let's juice!"

Also (worriedly looks all around before speaking) w-w-where's m-m-metal sonic?:twilightoops:

2890854 I'm thinking of making a sequel, and yes, both Chrysalis and Metal Sonic will be playing a big role. Specifically, the Metal Sonic model from Sonic Heroes who was also capable of shapeshifting. But the story probably won't be ready for quite a while, so you might have to wait a bit.

In the meantime, don't trust anypony... the Changelings are everywhere....:rainbowderp:

2890881 I would say do a metal version of RD as well.

2890888 Why stop with just Rainbow Dash? You know how Eggman is. When he has enemies, first he throws a giant robot or two at them. And if that doesn't work, he builds robot duplicates.
And combining that with Changelings, the sequel is planned to deal a lot with duplicates.

can't wait for the sequel


This was a great story! It's hard to find good crossovers on this site, but this one was excellently written, and I really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for writing!

2895526 Thanks! Actually, the reason I wrote this was because I thought the same thing about it being hard to find good crossovers. I have a sequel planned for the future. It may be a while before it comes out, but I already have quite a bit of it planned out.:pinkiesmile:

Sequel idea (sort of.)

They meet the wisps from Sonic colors. I seriously want to see a Final Color Blaster mixed in with the magic of friendship.

Seeing as you are already making a sequel, maybe this could be the sequel of the sequel?


2915040 I've never actually gotten to play Sonic Colors.:fluttershysad: But I'd be willing to research it online for some of the info. Although hopefully I can just play the game instead.:pinkiehappy:
Also, I've never gotten to play Sonic Generations, which is such a shame, because it looked really awesome, and because somepony made a mod so that you can play as Rainbow Dash!:rainbowkiss:
The problem is, there are so many great concepts in both MLP and Sonic that it's hard to choose which ones to use. Odds are I'll probably do a few smaller spin-off stories to cover the material I couldn't fit in the bigger ones. It could be fun to do something with Nightmare Night, or the Black Arms.
I'll keep your suggestion in mind. After all, I know at least one pony who would be overjoyed to meet some Wisps, and it would be pretty cool to see her take up a more influential role in the stories.:yay:


A youtube video combining the Final Color Blaster with the fight against Nightmare Moon is what introduced me to MLP mostly xD


What's even better, somebody made a map for TF2 (Team Fortress 2, "A war-based hat collecting simulator") that is the final boss of Sonic Colors.

2890908 Also just for the sake of argument pull an 06 and kill a main character but then bring them back. I-I mean i-if t-that's alright with you.:fluttershbad:

This story is awesome!
what would you say if I told you i read it about 6 times before I joined this site...?:pinkiecrazy:

This story is under appreciated and that's putting it lightly. When I first saw this story I was a bit skeptical because I usually only read stories that have one of two things:
1st - Awesome cover art.
2nd - High like to dislike ratio. (big numbers)
Then I saw this little gem when I searched by word count. This story was amazing and it deserves more respect and :heart: than what it has been given.

Unlike most gamers, I LOVED Sonic 06, minus a few glitches

3529997 I would say that I am seriously flattered. Thanks a heap!

3710290 Wow. Thanks a heap, that really made my day! Also, I guess it shows that good cover art pays off. (I used Paint.net, by the way. The MLP characters are images of the models made by KPShadowSquirrel.)

3951129 It's really refreshing to find somepony who likes the game as well. Had it been given a little more love, I ave no doubt that it would have been the best Sonic game ever. The music, the story, the environments, and the introduction of Silver and Mephiles just made it totally awesome for me. Plus, it was the first Sonic game I ever even saw. I know it has glitches, but seriously, I think people focus way too much on them.

I also liked Sonic 2006 except for every scene to deal with princess whats her name and Eggman's design in the game wasn't that good either. Shadow's story line was the best.

Phew. Talk about a hidden gem. I swear, finding the Chaos Emeralds is easier than finding a story like this. [/nerd]

Anyways, cool story bro!

In other news...

4231173 I know, right? I actually heard they pushed forward the game a whole YEAR. It was originally meant to come out on Sonic's 21'st Anniversary, but SEGA pushed for it to be done sooner. Just imagine what it would be if it had been given enough time...

not shit mach speed for coolest idea 2014

4231173 It was one of my first too

The only thing I don't like is Solianna freaking Adventure 3

4785643 Woah! Thanks for all the praise!:pinkiehappy:

4929802 I do have plans for a (very) distant sequel. And Nicole will be making an appearance, albeit a small one.:pinkiesmile:

5915505 I kinda pictured it like a twelve-foot mix of Metal Sonic and Omega. All in all, pretty nasty.

Hey... that would actually make a cool boss for the games.

Where the sequel at :fluttercry:

A very, very well made story. I must say that I appreciate that you didn't include overdone shipping with the characters, thank you so much for this wonderful experience :twilightsmile: It is a thrilling and amazing adventure with a well thought out story line. The ending cliffhanger was what the audience (in my opinion) needed, I look forward to the sequel. :raritywink:

Well done. I would go on (I'm usually somewhat detailed in my end-of-story praises) but 7546259 hit basically every point (except for that last sentence; don't tease a sequel unless you're going to follow through).

I've already recommend your story to other fanfic readers I know.

Also, :flutterrage: WHEN'S THE SEQUEL COMING OUT?:flutterrage:
That is, if you don't mind sharing...:fluttershysad:

Well, that was an adventure...

...you could call it a Sonic Adventure

why did you name it the sun shades in Latin?
