The goal Sunset Shimmer devoted her entire life to was a lie. Raw power had limits. Friendships did not.
Sunset's conquerors embraced her with open arms. Searching for a way to bring her new, slightly jaded friend into her circle, Pinkie Pie stumbles upon something that may do much more than that. Something that builds trust and teams, something that turns friends into family.
They happen to be Airsoft guns.
Inspired by the anime "Tokurei Sochi Dantai Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu" ("Stella Academy Club C³") and the exploits of the ArmA community group "Shack Tactical." At least in spirit, if not style.
Rated Teen for occasional harsh language. You're all kinda adults, deal.
Now has a short-story prequel: Show, Don't Tell
I must request that any corrections be sent to me as a PM, not in the comments. Please do send them, though. Otherwise I LOVE FEEDBACK AND COMMENTS.
(Had one from The Good HiE List, too, but thread deleted.)
