Faving for now so it doesn't get lost in my immense Read Later list. Will read once I've actually seen the movie. :pinkiehappy:

I have new picture, beside new story which in the middle of creating.
Spike in love

Oh Sunset, never say that things couldn't get any worse. Things will always find a way.:trollestia:

This is the best.
I've honestly not read something this funny in a long while.

Annnnnnd we're back! Pinkie and Sonata are cute together, it's good to see Pinkie being suffocated by a hug, she's usually the one doing the suffocating.
I'm worried about the other 2 dazzlings, they're almost as dumb as Sonata and need someone looking after them as well, but their personalities make that an issue. Maybe Trixie needs a pair of assistants with benefits? (I'm loving the Snips and Snails hanging with Trixie BTW).

The highlight of this chapter is, of course, Tushlight Stinkle. I hope we hear more about what Sunset writes in the book (and why "mom" dumped her copy off on Twilight).

Fluttershy placed a hand over her mouth as her cheeks puffed out and sprinted away from the table heading for the door.

Fluttershy NOOOO! You were doing so good conquering your anorexia, eating all those beans and cheese (with Sunset's "gentle persuasion"). Now you've fallen into the grips of bulimia? Looks like Sunset has a new mission!

Comedy aside, I really do love tales of redemption and personal growth, even if it looks like the Dazzlings have quite a long road ahead of them, I think they can make it...



for realzies

I'm faving this....for reaslies!!:rainbowlaugh:

Love how Sunset is characterized in this, that stuff with the book is priceless! Small nitpick, in the movie I believe the book Twilight has in Equestria has Celestia's cutie mark on it.

Faving and following since this is like the third or so story of yours that I favourited.

The bit where she just walks up to a guy and makes thinly veiled threats then stops to explain them as if they were too complex for him because she liked the way his meal looked had me laughing out loud.
The part where everyone parallels Sonata to Sunset was good, too.
As was the evil yogurt eating... Really the only bit that didn't have me chuckling was the sandwich sharing. That was gross.
Also

“Yes! Go Aria!” Trixie cheered. “Rip Adagio’s shirt right off her sexy body!”

I see Adagio's seductive touching was more successful than she was probably planning on during her dance number.

:rainbowkiss: I was just thinking the other day about how someone should do a Pinkie and Sonata friendship story, and you have done it! :heart: Also, I LUV how Rainbow was just like "Nope!" and left :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: priceless :rainbowlaugh:

This is the best thing EVAR! For realsies!

I always thought Sonata and Pinkie would make a great pair. A pair of what? I don't know. But a pair of somethings.

Imagine being trapped in a room with them. The horror.

I faved and liked it before even reading it because I knew it was going to be another fun, slightly insane story coming from one of the most fun, slightly insane authors on this site.

It was a little disappointing.
























...Just kidding. :trollestia:

EDIT: Apparently no one saw the last part of the comment, which was the whole point of the joke.

Well... Here we go again...
Looking forward to where this is going. And it ain't the city of Peaceful Town. :raritywink:

I never realized how great these two are together until now.
...
For realizies.

“Bakes inside is a piece of bacon and some sausage! All covered in delicious maple syrup-egg yolk frosting!”

I've actually had a bacon cupcake. Quite tasty, really. [also, I think you mean baked?]

“YAY!” Pinkie exclaimed before she threw her arms around Sonata and hugged her tightly.
Sonata returned the hug.
“Sonata… choke… cough…?” Pinkie uttered as her face went red again. “Can you… can you loosen your grip?”

I am so amused. :rainbowlaugh: Do continue.

FINALLY Pinkie understands what it is to have a hug that practically makes you pass out. Karma.

While I enjoyed this, I was sorely disappointed when I learned it was not a parody of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk i haven't watched rainbow rocks

“Look!” Sunset cried. “We can’t just adopt evil villainesses because they look sad and pathetic!”
The group collectively turned and stared at Sunset.

Dear Princess Spankle,
Please open the portal. I can't take it here anymore.
-Sunset Shimmer

Pinkie grinned wide and shook her head. “Don’t worry about that! Enemies are just friends who are trying to kill you!”

Only Pinkie Pie

Sunset shrugged. “Don’t know, don’t care!” Sunset dug her fork into her meal, took another bite, chewed, than swallowed. “Just as long as one or more animals died to make my meal, I’m happy.”

And with this I now love Sunset Shimmer

I have now boarded the great ship PinkieXSonata. Point me in the direction of the free buffet

“Hey! She just stole our idiot!” Aria cried.

Luv it. :rainbowwild: :pinkiehappy:

Sonata hovered over him and eyed the hoagie sandwich he was holding hungrily. From the same table, a female student with long purple hair, a female student with long red hair tied in a ponytail, and a male student with short, tousled green hair and a wide brimmed, brown hat glared at Sonata.

Okay, Normal Norman, Mystery Mint, Rose Heart, and Scott Green? Did I get that right? It took me a while for the last two. :twilightsmile:

“Adagio and Aria said I’m not allowed anything with laces after that one time I almost strangled myself to death!”

It's hilariously sad when one character's life is ruled by others' decisions. :rainbowwild:

This has to be the best Dazzlings fan fic I've seen yet. For realsies! :pinkiehappy:

Pinkie grinned wide and shook her head. “Don’t worry about that! Enemies are just friends who are trying to kill you!”

Sonata’s eyes went wide. “That makes perfect sense!” she said as she reached for Pinkie’s hand.

And thus, a beautiful friendship was born :rainbowkiss:

“Can I have some?” Sonata asked with a smile. “Otherwise someone might encounter an unfortunate accident!”

Uhh…

Sonata continued, “And by someone, I mean you! And by ‘unfortunate accident’ I mean I’ll find out where you live and murder your entire family and you!” Sonata’s cheerful grin widened. “For realsies!” she added.

I fucking love that she can be evil, funny, and adorable at the same time :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Pinkie and Sonata go so well with each other. I don't ship them, but the two of them are just adorable together :pinkiesmile:

Definitely putting on read later (most likely going to end up faving it) for the main reason of the title; party on, dude!

Oh my gosh pinkie and sonata are hilarious besties. For Realzies

So, did EQG 2 change how you're going to write Sunset in "The Wheel and the Butterfly"?

Well, I was considering reading this, but I think the Dazzlings are actually out of character. All that was said and shown, not just from the movie but also from the history bit Twilight explained, showed that though they were evil, they weren't pure evil. They wanted control, not deaths. Them killing or acting like they were just seems out of character. Case in point... why kill those that they've learned to drain negativity from? Killing a victim would be a waste of an energy source for them.

Probably not.

Sunset in RR is clearly a Sunset that's seen the error of her ways and is trying hard to be good. TW&TB Sunset has had no major events that make her realize she's sort of a monster even if not literally.

This Sunset is a little in between. Knows she's done wrong, but a bit snarky and irritable just because every one around her is insane.

All That Shimmers takes place immediately after EqG1, and is also where I'm writing a Sunset who's sort of figuring out the friendship stuff, essentially attempting to transition to how she was in RR. That's where the most impact to her character will probably hit. Though It's doubtful she'll ever stop being snarky completely.

5084399 I see why that might be kind of disgusting, but remember, Pinkie eats cupcakes that she stores in her HAIR. A drool soaked hoagie is nothing.

Fluttershy perked up with an interested expression. “It must be so exciting to have a pen-pal in another dimension.”

Sunset shrugged as she stabbed her fork into her meatloaf again. “Eh… I’ve been drawing butts in it mostly…”

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:Oww my sides.:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

If at some point Pinkie and Sonata don't go time traveling for a history paper, I will be disappointed.

I'm pretty sure you don't get their character in this. They haven't killed anybody yet, though they've threatened to and this is set after they lost their power to drain people... so I don't see that you have much of an argument.
This is also a comedy based on parodying characters by slightly exaggerating their personalities. Slightly. So these Dazzles will be a bit more aggressive and evil than the original, this Sonata will be a bit more stupid and so on and so on. The trick is that none of them have gained new personality traits, they always were evil or stupid or whatever, it's just showing them as somewhat moreso-- so they're warped but still easily recognizable as largely the same. It's humor comes from the fact they still resemble themselves.
This is most visible if you go read the previous story in this series (Cafeteria Control), while comparing it to the Rainbow Rocks previews-- in particular preview four, which is linked in the comments, and chapter 0.
It is a very common type of comedy, you can see it in many forms, such as pretty much every skit where a comedian impersonates a celebrity or political figure.

She stared at Pinkie’s outstretched hand briefly then looked up at her. “But… we’re enemies!”

Pinkie grinned wide and shook her head. “Don’t worry about that! Enemies are just friends who are trying to kill you!”

Sonata’s eyes went wide. “That makes perfect sense!” she said as she reached for Pinkie’s hand.

Best. Friendship. Ever.

If Sonata is Pinkie´s counterpart, I guess Adaggio is Sunset´s.
Really, I imagine them making synchronized facepalms to the Rainbows´ and Dazzlings´ antics. :facehoof:

Another Sonata redemption fic is out(I do enjoy them), and she's just as adorable as ever! :yay:

Sunset's prank... not enough :rainbowlaugh:'s

Sonata's got a way to go, doesn't she?

These two together is not a great thing for the universe.

Loved this :pinkiehappy: I wont lie the Trixie part was hilarious :trixieshiftright:

I would not be surprised that Sonata would be the nicest of the three girls. Besides she and Pinkie has very similar personalities.:pinkiehappy:

“Pinkie!” Sunset cried as she motioned to Sonata. “You can’t make friends with her!”

“Why not?” Pinkie asked as she puffed out her lower lip.

“She’s evil!” Sunset cried.

Wow! That's the stupidest childish black and white logic I've ever heard.:applejackunsure: Sonata is fucked up yes, but not evil.

Dangit, I can't stop seeing those three as the Pillar Men from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure!

Oh well, I can't wait to see how this odd friendship between Pinkie and Wamuu goes.

“Pinkie!” Sunset cried as she motioned to Sonata. “You can’t make friends with her!”

“Why not?” Pinkie asked as she puffed out her lower lip.

“She’s evil!” Sunset cried.

I think it's the author talking.
Not something I'm a big fan of.:applejackunsure:

5086991
5087134 It's called "hypocritical humor." It's funny because it's coming from Sunset, who was also once evil.
