The retired "Clarity" story guy.



Amor Fati is a Latin phrase loosely translating to "love of fate" or "love of one's fate". It is used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one's life, including suffering and loss, as good.

Having only joining the Canterlot High Wondercolts family for not even a week, Clyde finds himself in Saturday morning detention. Maybe it was fate, but he soon gains a best friend, a squad of goons to hang out with, a rival who holds a grudge on him, and the growing relationship with a certain girl.

As the year progresses, he learns two things: fate is something that never escapes him and there's someone he loves more than it.

Story is set before, during, and after Equestria Girls. Also, story ends before Rainbow Rocks.
Thanks to the fabulous CogWing for the cover art. Now with more chic!
Thanks to the awesome Azure_Shadow and his story, The Pie of My Eye, for minor behind the scenes help and inspiration for writing an EG story myself, respectively.

Pretty good so far, Tyrone is so stereotypical that it's hilarious!:rainbowlaugh:

Brought here by the OC's group!

As Azure_Shadow said, Tyrone is so stereotypical its just funny.

So, the story so far is pretty good. I'm interested what location you're going to center the story, and, if at the school, how you're going to do that.

You've got me interested, so I shall follow.

4317386 I appreciate it!

Other than Clyde, the OCs are based off of and made by some of my real life friends. Tyrone, who wanted to keep the same namesake, wanted me to have him as stereotypical as possible.

Clyde is the one I made, which is why he's my favorite one and the main character.

These are surprisingly similar to people I actually know. (Maybe a little crazier than them, but not by much)
Tyrone, oh you! I especially know people like him.

4319127 That's awesome then! Hopefully you enjoy it more then!

Seems like everyone loves Tyrone. I can't wait to show him tomorrow of his fan base.

4319457 Clyde seems pretty cheeky, I like it.

4319482 Maybe he'll change his ways after meeting someone? :raritywink:


Ahhh, I see. :rainbowlaugh:

Well, keep it up, sir! :yay:

Oh, and if you might need an editor, PM me ..not that it looks like you need one :twilightsmile:

Ya! 1st comment on the chapter!!:rainbowlaugh: I kid, another great chapter, especially with Iron Will.

4323837 You're probably going to be first on every chapter now. My views are halting.

No matter, at least I have some fans! Better than nothing!

4324316 hey, it's the same way with PomE!:rainbowlaugh:

4323837 I think he prefers Ferous William.

Great chapter! :moustache:

Clyde hopped up and turned towards the door. He saw Trenderfoot standing at the door with a smile on his face. Before Clyde could question him, he turned and walked away.

Ominous... :rainbowderp:


Fans indeed! :rainbowdetermined2:

4325248 Looks like the plot has thickened! :raritywink:

Thanks for the fave too!


Oh my damn! I just remembered who Trenderfoot is! :pinkiegasp:


Not bead but lots ad lots of errors man, but their simple easy to fix ones, so that's good, the story line is kinda confusing though but its pretty good so far man keep it up

- Emerald Knight

4349357 Could you give an example or two on the errors so I know what to look for to fix?

Also, the storyline will become more clear as it progresses. I guess that's my fault for not having clarity in the early parts.

Thanks for the comments though.

Yeah, there's no reason why you put those two together.:raritywink:

Its not bad picks for them man I thought the fund raiser with the balloons was smart thinking man good job on that

4360846 I don't know what you're talking about... :duck:

4361306 He's definitely one of my favorites.

4362479 Flutterbulk is best ship!! (Behind Thunderjack of course)

Cute. This is special because I never read a Rarity and oc ship before.

4380365 Well, I hope I make it enjoyable for you so you like it!

Heh, this was an awesome chapter. :moustache: Finally gettin' somewhere.

4382485 Thanks! But the goal at the end of the road is still so far away...

I like this bro i've always felt this fandom had an ironic lack of masculinity sometimes its nice to read a fic that reminds me what its like to chill with the homies feel me? Oh and you talking about Clyde Drexler right?

4384849 Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it so far.

Well, I do like Drexler, but Walt Frazier is the guy that inspired the whole nickname thing.

I like how she put his number in his phone that was funny, glad I have a lock on mine

4385210 I don't think Clyde cares at this point about not having it locked. He now has her number. :raritywink:

I like this chapter a lot. Great job!
Rarity: Jacking your phone since 2014. (Cause she's hackin' into yo' phones, and textin' yo' people up.)

This story gets better as it goes on! Clyde's situation is realistic and relatable!

4401864 Thanks, friend!

I tried to make it like a realistic attraction to someone. I hope I'm doing it justice.

its getting more realistic as it goes one and I can't wait for more but I am tired now must sleep or die so can't wait for more

The others seem to have commented on realism, so I'll just say that I like it. For the reasons above or below (depending on how you have the comments appear)
There were a couple grammar/spelling errors, I could send you them in a PM if you'd like, so you can edit them later.

I really liked it! A very well done chapter.:twilightsmile:........just one thing I didn't understand.:twilightsheepish: I haven't read the Poncho Chronicles, but it seems to me as though Clyde wouldn't be the type of guy to just suddenly act superly defensive, even if it is Rarity.

4402131 Clyde gets super defensive about anybody he likes, admires, his family/friends, etc. It's just how his personality is. He's like that in the PC too, since he only had his friends left. (Also a brother who has yet to show up in any story.)

4419963 Thank you! I hope I can keep you satisfied with it! :raritywink:

Awww, this was such a cute chapter!:rainbowkiss: I can't wait for the next one!

4432787 Thanks, friend! I'm glad you liked it! :raritywink:

That was lovely.
I may be a guy, but I can appreciate a good romance.
For some reason, I could practically picture the last scene in my mind... I wonder why?
Great work!
I love how you captured Rarity's character!

4433553 As a guy myself, I'm surprised I can actually write these sort of scenes. :raritywink:

4433606 like other things, it might just come naturally to guys. Like fantastic Eyelashes (or so I'm told) :rainbowlaugh:

This one of the best stories I have ever read. Please continue. :)

4434789 Wow. I never heard anyone give one of my stories that much praise. I'm thrilled you like it so much!

Woah, nice. A longer chapter this time. :yay:
