Fixation on death aside, this is lovely —Soge, accidentally describing my entire life


Sunset Shimmer, horrified at finding that the Dazzlings are back and are somehow broadcasting their song around the school, has taken it upon herself to save the day.

Someone should really explain to her what a fire drill is.

Special thanks to the awesome MoHawgo for the cover art.

Now with a reading by AstroBrony!

Pure awesomeness!

You poor thing. Someone really needs to explain what a fire drill is to you.:facehoof:

She named all of her guitars J names.

I approve.

Also, the story was great.

I don't know if you're already planning on it but we'd love if you'd post this to /r/sunsetshimmer.:twilightsheepish:


I wasn't planning on it, but you've convinced me. :pinkiehappy:

I cannot imagine a more relevant username, EVER.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

Oh believe me, she'll probably find out soon enough. :trollestia:

I'm gonna save this to read later. If it turns out Sunset is a Hamon master and uses that against the Pillar Men(read: Dazzlings), it would be the best. Probably not, but I can dream.


I haven't even read it yet but I love it.

The picture, and the number of words in this story. I noticed :pinkiehappy:

This was hilarious! :rainbowkiss:
Great job!

Something tells me that Sunset is not just going to have to pay for new guitars--but the school for a new alarm system:rainbowlaugh:

I like the 1,337 words. Authors should aim for cool wordcounts like 1,138, 1,701, et cetera.

'Someone should really explain to her what a fire drill is.'

... Wait, then what's a fire truck doing there? :rainbowhuh:

(just from the info)

So she's been there for at least 5 years, and hasn't had a fire drill yet?

It's just so... Beautiful!

I can't wait for the sequels. You know, since they ARE able to master new things within a week and all. This fic was so moving. I can't describe the awesome that is Sunset throughout this masterpiece of Equestria Girls fiction. Way to go. Just so much bucking awesomeness crammed in such an itty-bitty reading space!

That was awesome. All those people who chopped off their green thumbs and nailed it as a symbol of their love and respect for this story (as gross as that is) are now all the more enlightened for reading this.

*bows to "Infinite Guitar Works Sunset Shimmer, The Princess of Rock"*

May your pick never break.

Part of me hopes stories of Sunset Shimmer acting silly will become it's own sub-genre.

Sunset Silly. :heart:

the noise sounded like a lumberjack whittling a piece of steel into a usb drive with a cheese grater while a herd of hyenas was singing opera in the background, though if they added some drum and bass it could sound like a song from Vinyl Scratch’s new album.

I can't get the mental image of hyenas from Lion King singing opera... :rainbowlaugh:

Sunset Shimmer, always ready for the random musical numbers that often pervaded her life, grabbed one of her eighty-three spare guitars she had stashed around the school, yanking out the one that was lodged in between one of the cupboards of her biology class.

She spends too much time with Pinkie Pie...

Professional lawyering was one of Sunset Shimmer’s many hobbies, including: playing guitar, ninjutsu, regretting everything, complaining online about TV shows she had no plans on seeing, and reanimating the dead.

So, exactly what girls her age do after school...

The League of Sunset Shimmer Acting Silly? (LoSSAS)


Oh my goodness, that works too well.

League of SASS.

Sorry to disappoint you, but it's not a JoJo's Bizarre adventure crossover. But the idea of Sunset Shimmer shouting WRRRRRRRRRRY sounds really funny.

Cutting down to 1337 words was the funniest part of the writing process.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. :pinkiehappy:

I like to imagine Principal Luna looking at Sunset Shimmer shaking her head, and handing her electrical tape and glue. Kind of like how she just handed Sunset Shimmer bricks and mortar at the end of the first movie.

This was the first time I've aimed for a word count. It was pretty fun. :trollestia:

I think I just went to a weird High School growing up. Every fire drill, without fail, a fire truck from the fire department would show up and no one could go back into the building until a fireman declared it "safe."

Nothing about this is realistic, it's just Rule of Funny. :trollestia:

Your carefully crafted compliments belong framed on a wall somewhere. Thanks! :moustache:

May the silliness continue. :rainbowwild:

Every time Sunset tried to stash another guitar in a random spot, there was already a drum set in there. The whole school is littered with musical instruments.

The group should just be named "SASS" and then authors have to interpret what kind of Sunset Shimmer to write.
Socially Awkward Sunset Shimmer
Silly Acting Sunset Shimmer
Scientifically Astute Sunset Shimmer
Surly Aggressive Sunset Shimmer
Super Awesome Sunset Shimmer

I'd love to see an epilogue to this.

This was extraordinarily stupid.

I also feel like the premise was fundamentally flawed. Sunset has been at CHS for at least 3 years now.

:rainbowlaugh: Thank you, Sunset! Fire drills in schools are always nuisances!

I love this story SO MUCH.
I lost it when it went through her hobbies, though!

Sunset loved sorry spells, it didn’t even feel like casting a spell, but once she said the word she was completely exempt from the consequences of her actions for five whole minutes. It was like grabbing a star in Super Mario World, but it lasted longer.

:rainbowlaugh: That's brilliant

Sunset Shimmer...you're my hero. :heart:


But... leet words... :raritydespair:
I've written myself into a corner. :raritycry:

Let's just say because Sunset said "sorry" once, she was immune from all responsibility and she learned a valuable lesson about how to behave in emergency situations. :moustache:

Yeah... but it was still funny? Right? :trollestia:

I know right! They're more inconvenient than Trixie.

Fun fact, all I had was the title to this story for about two weeks, and I wanted it to be a Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossover. There is a lot of potential there. Canterlot High is practically on a Hellmouth like Sunnydale high. But I couldn't think of anything. But then again there are different kinds of Sirens... and this came out.

I'm glad you liked that part too! :twilightsheepish:

It was a welcome break from the sad stuff I was writing. And testing if I even can write a silly story. I think I did okay.

Sorry spells, cast often for the greatest effect. :trollestia:

Mine too. :moustache:

It was something. I'm not sure I'd call it funny. It was stupid, for sure. But it wasn't the sort of stupid I'd call funny.

I guess it just wasn't my cup of tea. :rainbowwild:

It's hard to figure out the right balance of making something plausible and funny. I still have a lot to learn on the subject.
Thanks for the feedback though. :eeyup:

I think most of the reason why I didn't find it funny is that Sunset has been there for 3 years. So the concept is incredibly difficult to take in. If the concept weren't so difficult to take in, you might have had a decent thing.

“You were thousand year old crazy evil seahorse things,
But then we took your magic and your ability to sing...s
But you’re not gonna win ever
Because I got my friends for-ever!”

Sunset loved sorry spells, it didn’t even feel like casting a spell, but once she said the word she was completely exempt from the consequences of her actions for five whole minutes.


The fact that Sunset should already know what a fire drill is after living here for so long and the implausibility of mistaking a fire alarm for the Dazzlings' singing are just necessary things I'm fine with suspending my disbelief for to read a balls-to-the-wall absurd fic; what I had a problem with was the bit where Sunset thought horse ears were gross and creepy even though she was born a horse. But whatevs, that's just a small detail that has no effect on the story, even if it weakens the joke you were trying to make about the "strange hobbies of her creepy new friends".

Technically she did kill a "siren."

Thanks so much for the feedback on which parts worked and which parts didn't. :pinkiehappy:
I'm glad you liked it!

She killed eighty-two sirens and one Firetruck horn. :moustache:
It was a good day.

Just assume they don't have one every year or she was busy skipping to compile blackmail material into videos during the last couple or something.

I thought it was the feeling of her ears moving around on her head that was creepy, not horse ears themselves.

Misunderstanding, Destruction, death of fire alarms, sheer and utter craziness. It was a good day.
Loved the story, pure crack fiction is so much fun to read.

This might be a little weird, but while I read this I found myself wondering...

Why "J" names? XD


I have this friend that names crows "J" names.

Every time he sees a crow he'll mutter under his breath something like, "Jason's acting up again," or "Jemima really ought to stop going through the trash."

I always chuckle when I hear him do that, so I blatantly ripped off his habit and stuck it in a fanfic.

At first I was sad that I wasn't in a fic with "J names", but then I ended up destroying a firetruck.
It was a good day.


That's the spirit!

I love silly stories :3
You're too kind. :twilightsmile:

And you've almost read everything? I oughta publish some more then. :twilightblush:

How about the strobe lights flashing on the red boxes?

Read this story at least 10 times. It never gets old.

You have no idea how happy that makes me to hear that :yay:

1337 words? Well now I have to fave and follow.


Sunset, you derped up! Bad...... :derpytongue2:

Author Interviewer

I wish you'd saved the fire drill reveal for the end instead of the description, but this was still darned funny. :D

This was hilarious, although I think the ending might have been a bit funnier if it had gone on a bit longer and Sunset realized what exactly she did. Still, major points for this. XD
