Now the sky could be blue, I don't mind; without you it's a waste of time. Could be blue, could be gray; without you I'm just miles away.


Set directly after the events of Magical Mystery Cure.

Twilight Sparkle has just been crowned Equestria's newest princess. Shortly after her coronation, Princess Celestia tells Twilight that they need to talk. Then Celestia bursts into flames.

This little one-shot came to me a little while back. I have no idea where it came from. Beware of OOC moments and fourth-wall breaking.

If you (dis)liked this story, I would love to know why so I can improve my writing.

You know, this... strangely makes sense :rainbowhuh:

Shame she lives in a tree. Or good, if she burns down the new, ugly tree.

4431249 You know, that's technically spam, and you can get a warning for that by the mods. Also, not really a good video to post on an "Everyone" story.

This is the second story I've read in 12 hours where someone burst into flames....I like it.

Good work! This made me laugh.

Quick and cute. I like it!


This should be interesting. :rainbowlaugh:

Oh yes, quite amusing. :rainbowlaugh:

“Unfortunately, yes, Twilight. I wanted to tell you now so you won’t go on a crazy mental breakdown.”
Princess Twilight Sparkle had burst into flames.

Oops too late! :pinkiecrazy::twilightoops:

If nothing else, I applaud you for one of the most attention-grabbing titles in the history of fiction. :rainbowlaugh:

Yes... oh yes this was absolutely hilarious.

There needs to be more fics like this.

4431649 I'm glad you guys like this story! :rainbowkiss: I'm curious if I inspired any headcanons.

wut the wut
me likey-likey

Wow, dat rating! I sense that there is a good new writer in our midst.

4433079 Thanks! :yay: But there's always room for improvement!

You have all my WAT. :derpyderp2::derpyderp1::derpyderp2:

4433114 Yep, exactly. That's why I never look at my number of followers and get all excited. I look at improvement in writing as my primary concern.

I'd ask why Shining Armor caught on fire but "because it's funny" probably justifies it.

Nice little cameo by Flash.

4433290 That wasn't Flash Sentry! That was...Crash Sentry! 'Cuz they crash into each other! :moustache:

Yeah, I got nothin'.

Oh, and Shining Armor wasn't present. Those were just Cadence's ashes.

Well at least it wasn't their dermatologist triple Rash Sentry.

You know, if they could do it at will, that would be one hell of a party trick. Watch as I burn to ashes and magically resurrect. It would be fun. You know, after the screaming stopped...


4433421 I am laughing at your joke to make it funny

Hehe, good story... You earned a like.

Consider me on the level known as amused. I wish I could find a separate scene of Jan Valentine catching fire from the Hellsing Ultimate Abridged series by TFS

The funny side of spontaneous combustion.:trollestia:

Princess Twilight Sparkle had burst into flames.

But, I suspect, for entirely different reasons than Celestia.

Once more, Twilight evolves into Rapidash! :pinkiehappy:

4436122 So I'm guessing my first attempt at comedy wasn't too terrible, eh? :ajsmug:

this is head cannon now. all alicorns burst into flames

Who knew that spontaneous combustion could be funny... I certainly didn't! But, anyway, this is hilarious.

And that was how Equestria invented the internal combustion engine.

What about the stallion guard that tried to ask her out? :pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp:

4436528 It was NOT a cameo by Flash Sentry, that's for sure. :trollestia: Maybe.

Now we need a sequal where she burst into flames while being with her friends and then has to explain! :rainbowlaugh:

Princess Twilight Sparkle had burst into flames.

I... Bu- ... Okay.
