The following tale...is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.


"You weren't yourself."
That's what Spike keeps telling Rarity after her time under the spell of Inspiration Manifestation. But the seamstress is not so sure....

That's certainly an interesting insight into the aftereffects of that particular episode...

Thanks for writing! :raritywink:

Fight, Rarity!

For everlasting peace!

Wow, just beautiful. That's the true spirit of Rarity.

Fight, Rarity!

For fine fashion and good taste! :duck:

That was a nice little character study of Rarity.

My only suggestion would be to check your formatting and make sure your paragraph spacing is consistent, darling. :raritywink:

Spot on vanity :raritycry:,Pride:raritydespair:. her biggest flaw & asset.:raritywink: Well done, Nicely written.

I REALLY didn't like the 'where am I?' cliche used for Rarity. In particular when TRIXIE remembered her actions with the Alicorn Amulet, when Rarity didn't with the book, when they were clearly the same style of magic (bringing out the more base impulses of the user the more it's used).

4861314 See, I've always figured that when that happens, it's just the initial effect, and they end up remembering it on their own moments later.

So now Rarity has to face her inner darkness and not attack it, thus casting it out and becoming a Paladin, right?

4858186 Thanks for commenting! So glad you liked. ^_^


4859155 Darned right it is. Glad you enjoyed, thank you.

4859226 Two references to that "Mega Man" quote on one story? I smell conspiracy! XD

4860838 Thank you! Paragraph formatting is a big weak-spot of mine, especially when it comes to transferring a story from one format to another (as I originally posted this on deviantART, then copied it here). I'll try 'n' edit it when I get the chance. ^_^

4861062 Yeah, a HUGE part of my inspiration for this was how much I appreciated that the portrayal of IM!Rarity felt very much like an amplification of her own worst traits, and that sort of thing always fascinates me. Thanks!

4861314 I'm not too bothered by it, personally, but I do get where you're coming from. Glad my story could address that for you. 8D

4861338 Something like that, yeah. :raritywink:


Very well done. Very well done indeed.

4864293 Thank you. Thank you very much. ^_^

Just for the record, I haven't read this yet. But I will say that the cover art is giving off a serious "Nightmare in Silver" vibe.

4867398 Truthfully, I don't know "Doctor Who" all that well, but that IS a fun little scenario, and there's an extent to which it's in keeping with this story's spirit, so I hope you find it worth your time when you do read it. ^_^
