I am Shining Armor, captain of the Royal Guard, older brother of Princess Twilight Sparkle. I am prince to the Crystal Empire's Princess Cadance, my wife. At her Royal Highness Princess Celestia's word, I command legions of soldiers that stand ready to defend Equestria and it's citizens. I am strong, I am respected, I am looked up to as a paragon of accomplishment. Today, a new recruit asked me; What did I do right? how did I get to where I am today? This is my answer, this is my story.

Oh, this is a pleasant surprise.
Will read very soon...

Geez, what did Shining do that was so bad in his father's eyes (and why was he being such a flankhole). Can't wait to read to find out.

So... this story... I'm not quite sure what to think of it so far. You definitely put tonnes of emphasis on crying and feeling worthless and things, but I'm confused as to exactly why?
Pardon me for suggesting this—it might not even be true—but so far this feels akin to an experience that you yourself might have had.
Correct me if I'm wrong, by all means, it just feels this way.

I never thought what is going to be like saying goodbye, when my time comes to walk on the bus and leave for basic...... damnit max now I'm crying.

4606816 his dad is being like that because that's the instinctive drill sergeant demeanor, and the reason why he got in shinnings face is because in the military you NEVER EVER talk back or complain to a higher rank and that's what dad is to shining a higher rank
