She's looking at you. Yes you. And she is judging you with her eyes. There is no escape.


Clover the Clever, student of Starswirl the Bearded, one of the Founders of Equestria, hopes to solve the riddle of her age. Do earth ponies have magic? She is determined to find out, and to aid in her efforts, has taken in an earth pony as a student.

Will Clover find what she is looking for?

If this receives any sort of interest at all, I might add more chapters. Otherwise, it will probably remain an incomplete one shot. So if you actually want more, tell me. I'll oblige.

That's a very interesting idea you've got there. I love the connection you made with Starswirl and Clover, proves that he was a grump...

“Can you believe that my servants have forced me to wear bells on my clothing so that they know when I draw near? So they can flee before my arrival? Do you have any idea how annoying all those bells are?” Starswirl asked. “They threatened to quit if I did not agree to those silly bells. I can’t get anything done with all that jingling.”

I really wish this had more views... So far it's very good. :twilightsmile:

I don't know why it's getting no attention, I really like it and am looking forward to more.

To be fair, I got here because of Twilight Sparkle and the Very Confusing Day, but I still got here and I'm glad I did.


Thank you. I'll crank out an update soonish. Or try to, anyway. :derpytongue2:

I have to ask, what's the story behind feral ponies in this time period? How common were they? Was there a resurgence after all of the dread beings Celestia had to face down, or were there always some ponies on the fringes who had never known civilization?

Also, with Clover's question that made Star Swirl take her own, was the duplicated "can't" intentional? I can't tell.

In any case, a fascinating concept. A terrible shame that this is so underappreciated. I hope you continue it at some point.


Discord. Orphans. No social safety nets.

War. Famine. Tragedy.

Lots of orphan foals with no caretakers = feral ponies.

I hope you will revisit this when ever you do take a break from The Chase. It's quite good.
