In the aftermath of her battle against Tirek, Twilight Sparkle is unwell. She wants more. She needs more. And she is afraid of what others might think of her.

But even in the midst of her growing despair that she has betrayed everything she stood for, she learns something about friendship and what it means to be an alicorn.

Hmm, magical addiction for Twilight. It certainly sounds intriguing.

Yeah... addiction is a powerful thing. I still fight it after five years.

An interesting idea, definitely looking forward to where this goes :derpyderp2::pinkiehappy:

See this
Can't help but think it too good a coincidence.

This is a really cool idea(not to mention the first time I've seen it) and I look forward to more

Twilight, what are you doing?? Twilight, stop!

itnersting idea.................. twilight could not possible absorb the power of the everfree and live. the tree is far beyond the limits of a normal being. the Tree of harmony is needed, and tiwlight clearly could not use the tree's powe alone, it had to be divided up amongst her and her friends.

besides tirek was able to steal powerful magic by building up his strength, gradually growing strong enough to handle it. at the very least twilight would have to take the magic of several hundred beings to even start with. perhaps it would even take twice the power tirek held when he finally claimed the alicorn essence for his own.

Yessssss this was what I was also thinking of

P,ease write well and moreeeee :pinkiecrazy:

Very interesting idea. I will be reading this. (By the way, I'm also going to give you a follow, just cause you and your stories are awesome :twilightsmile:)

Holy shit this is gonna be good.

You most certainly have my attention!

Well now, this is going to be fun. A story about addiction plus the vampire-like parasitizing of other living things? Looking forward to where you take this.

She's going to find out how delicious draining a pony is, and things will go all horrible.

You have my attention.:twilightsmile:

Hmmm have to say this is gonna be amazin'

And then Twilight travelled back in time and became Chrysalis. :trollestia:

I think the concept is fantastic, and is loved the subtle reference to how everyone was bitching about the death of Golden Oaks Library. I found it humorous, especially because that phase in this site's history annoyed me.

Overall, I can't wait for more.

Interesting. You have my attention, now I need more. :yay::rainbowkiss:

Interesting idea. I can't wait to see more.:twilightsmile:

4460869 With what? You don't have to answer if you don't want to...

4464768 Well, Twilight is clearly addicted to powerful levels of magic...
Myself, i was addicted to drugs. Any I could cram up into my sinuses :twilightoops:

Oh c'mon. Even the Tree of Harmony screwed Spike out of having his own room?

well, I am intrigued. how long till somepony/zebra notices.

And so the down spiral begins:pinkiecrazy:
Looks good, looking forward to more!:pinkiehappy:

4460976 I SEE PINKIE!!! Its pinkie Sense Not a coincidence I think..

Obviously, the combination of having been empowered by three other Alicorn princesses and then seeing firsthand how Tirek steals magic has led Twilight to hunger for more magic than she can produce herself and to copy Tirek's spell (with a little help from her research) to increase her power levels. The problem being that she can't do this naturally, the magic isn't compatible with her own system, and she's becoming seriously addicted to the power for power's sake -- which is likely to lead her to do more and more dangerous and desparate things in order to get magic, until her sanity shatters.

Unless she gets some help from her friends.

4460976 I SEE PINKIE!!! Its pinkie Sense Not a coincidence I think..

You have my attention. Really interesting concept, looking forward for more.:yay:

This is awesome! I can't wait to see more of this :pinkiehappy:

You should consider entering this story in this competition.
Come on, don't let me win by default!
Nice beginning, by the way. I'll track it.

4460864 4460869 4460964 4460976 4461144 4462905 4463040 4462774 4463990 4464700 4465046 4465728 4465759
Oh wow, I don't think any of my stories have gotten this much attention from the get go before. You guys are awesome! I'll do my best to deliver. :pinkiehappy:

I need more NOW! :pinkiecrazy:

4461056 4461215 Folks sometimes say that the show's writers are too easy on Twilight. Us fanfic writers on the other hoof... :fluttercry:

4461421 Pretty much. And that's probably what Twilight would be afraid of.

4463906 That is... an interesting idea. But unless she goes completely bonkers, I can't imagine her being so terrible at impersonating Cadance, though. :twilightsheepish:

4464893 I... I honestly did not consider that. :twilightoops: Maybe he's still very attached to her?

4466038 I've had a look at the competition, and I don't think this story will be eligible based on the direction I want to take it. Sorry.

4465385 4462542 Hmm, I do feel the need to point out that although this story is dark, it's also more slice of life than adventure, so it may not quite go in that direction. I'm just afraid that it may have generated expectations that it will not be able to meet. :applejackunsure:


Little guy is going to grow up so co-dependant.

This story is SO AWESOME! :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

4463968 Subtle reference? :derpyderp1: I'm not sure if that counts as subtle, unless you're referring to something other than the part where Twilight avenges her tree?

Thanks for reading! :pinkiehappy:

Interesting premise. Twilight has tasted the power of four goddesses... And she wants it back.

Neat! I don't usually read fics until they're complete... this was actually a mistake, lol. Forgot to sort read later list by completeness before picking one. >_< Still, a very interesting start! I'm hooked. Now I just need the rest.

She relented after a minute and saw no sign him.

Missing an "of."

4467257 Fixed. Thanks!

Now let Celestia/Luna and Twi's Friends come and have an intermission for Twilight then Twi refuses to get help and runs away to hide in the everfree forest. I mean Luna must have seen Twilights Dream Nightmare. XD :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

P.S. Cant wait till the next chapter already.

-raises eyebrow-

Go on...

This is one of the few stories that make me fear Twilight.

I'm not sure I like where this is going to lead, but you do have my interest and it is well written. I shall follow this and see where it goes.

This is a really cool idea and I'd love to see where it goes. I always love possession/turning evil stories. They're weirdly satisfying.

The premise had me intrigued, the opening chapter has me hooked. Magic addition and Twilight, this is certainly a recipe for disaster and a very interesting one.

4463990 You're not the only one middy.

I like this idea. Really, this is awesome. Your writing is also pleasing to my eyes. Plenty of show, just the way I like it.

So, she has to find a way of feeding the addiction, huh? I am looking forward to where this will end.
