Still tired. Still writing. Patreon



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.

Dat upvote > read ratio :rainbowhuh:
Yet another one of yours I'll have to get to sometime :pinkiesmile:

Nice, thumbed and faved.

By the way, have you ever heard of Alma the younger? (just curios, no worries if you haven't)

3524714 Can't say that I have. Is it an anime or something?

3524724 Haha no. Don't worry about it. Biblical reference. (kinda)

Good story though and I can't wait to read more.

Looks interesting so far! I give it my patented Cookie of Approval! :pinkiehappy:

Breaking Bad, are ya? Thinking you can release this story without me.

Intriguing concept. I can't wait to give this story a read.

Well actually I can wait seeing as I'm not about to read it yet, but you get the idea.

This could get really dark really fast, you know that right?

3525349 Silly pony. If it were dark, I would have put a dark tag.

Unless I'm trying to mislead you. :trixieshiftleft: :trixieshiftright:

i like it. nice cover art as well. great work. :pinkiehappy:

3525464 Thank you, Best pony is sexy as a human.

Is it me or does the Sunset Shimmer in this cover art attractive?

Only me here? Ok then.

3525495 Oh no, it's not just you. Trust me.

another great chapter. good work. :pinkiehappy:

Isn't this that Disney movie?

3525604Finally, someone catches it!

This was inspired by Ella Enchanted.

I have always wondered..... seeing as there is a Human Twilight Sparkle...... wouldn't there be a human Sunset Shimmer as well? :rainbowhuh:

*reads description*

My colleagues and I agree, this should be porn.

Is it really reform if it's against her will and by magic? Guess the Elements really are about conformity.

3525634 She murdered her and buried her behind the school.

3525637 Lol. I don't know, I just can't bring myself to write at that level yet.

3525673 Legends say if you wander the halls at night, you can here her screaming. :twilightoops:

3525691 -smirks- This is my honest to goodness Headcannon. Its much more likely that the Canterlot crew are all in other schools or towns though.


I knew it! Iknewitiknewitiknewit!

Well, I don't usually go in for romance, but honestly I'm intrigued.

Ohhhhh. I havn't seen an Ella Enchanted esque plot in a looooong time. And with post Equestria Girls sunset to boot. Color me interested.

3525495 Nope, not just you, she is sexy.

3525634 In theory, yes. However she could be anywhee in that world, or may even be dead.

I would have thought someone who had just escaped a horrible fate would have reacted far more emotionally than Twilight did, maybe that's just me.

Nope. Not just you. And i'm normally thrown off by that style of boots.


yea, I feel like the description has implied sex....:applejackunsure::twilightblush:

Very interesting story so far. I think I'll need to follow you to ctach the rest. As for the description, I'm not getting the implied part, I guess my imagination doesn't work like other peoples.

If you continue posting chapters you will have another follower, good sir. I'm keeping an eye on this story for sure. :pinkiehappy:

3525691 Please don't. That would be just creepy, and not really fitting with "harmony."

Never thought I'd see this side of what happened in Sunset's mind, in terms of limbo and so forth. Must be pretty painful. :fluttershysad:

One might say Sunset was learning about friendship sooner than she'd think.
Please tell me she'll get another chance with Flash Sentry or... some other guy!

3525726 Twas a good movie.

3525745 This is my first foray into the genre, but I hope to do it as realistically as possible.

3525887 I can see the implications if I squint my eyes really hard... and turn my head to the side... and close my eyes... eh.

3526220 Look at the tags my friend, look at the tags.

So, uh, you made the feature box. :pinkiegasp:
I guess I'll have to accept that you'll always be ahead of me on the literary side of things. :applecry:
Anyway, I'll commence reading sometime soon. After the premiere, of course. :raritystarry:
Also, the amount of dislikes on this fic is too damn high!

This should be quite interesting. Let's see where this goes.

This has great potential, I shall be watching closely. Also may I say that that header looks amazing.

Very interesting story. I will watch and see where it goes. :pinkiesmile:

Exhausted, Sunset fell onto her bed, too tired to think about crowns or her lack of therefore.

Think it should read "lack thereof." Sounds a bit better.

Aside from that, interesting premise. I shall follow it.

Ahh, good. Some tsundere Sunset Shimmer shipping.
