Sapphire Shores Shines

Sunset Shimmer stepped aside and let The Dazzlings walk over to a seemingly-astounded Sapphire Shores.

"I'll let you girls talk to her. Don't mind me."

"Oh, I know who you are too," Sapphire Shores told Sunset Shimmer. "You're Sunset Shimmer, right? Y'know, Princess Celestia's student before Twilight Sparkle took your place?"

"Yes," replied Sunset Shimmer. "I wish that I could become a princess too. I guess Twilight was a better student."

"Oh, don't be that way honey," spoke Sapphire Shores. "I'm sure that right now you're just as good as she was."

Sunset Shimmer smiled. "Thanks, Sapphire."

"None taken," replied Sapphire Shores. "However, I am interested in talking to your friends."

Sapphire Shores walked over to The Dazzlings. "Hello, Dazzlings! I've heard of you three before. A musical group that you three are in?"

"Yup," replied Adagio Dazzle. "We're called 'The Dazzlings', which is named after me, Adagio Dazzle. When we were sent to this strange alternate universe by Star Swirl the Bearded many moons ago, we eventually learned to change our ways. We have new necklaces that now harness positive energy rather than negative energy."

"Oh honey," replied Sapphire Shores, "I already know your names! In fact, when I was first looking to become a pony pop star, I did a little research on previous musicians. Apparently you three were considered musicians in your time."

"We were looking to become musicians when we were just little fillies," began Adagio Dazzle, "but we still were evil. Our necklaces took control of other ponies and seduced their minds to nothing but a state of hypnosis."

"Oh honey," repeated Sapphire Shores. "Don't pressure yourself about the past. It's, well, the past. You've gotta move on, sweetie! You and your fellow band-mates need to just move on and keep singing!"

"Well," spoke Aria Blaze, "we never signed a record deal..."

Sapphire Shores jumped back in surprise. "Blasphemy! You girls have beautiful voices! W-well, at least that's from what I've read..."

"We could vocalize for you," suggested Sonata Dusk.

"Yes, please!" Sapphire Shores answered. "I wanna hear your voices!"

Adagio Dazzle gulped.

"I hope that this'll work," she whispered. "I hope that our voices sound better..."

The Dazzlings drew in a deep breath. Soon afterwards, they began to vocalize:

"Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah..."

Their voices sounded beautiful, but not quite like they originally sounded. Still, Sapphire Shores was quite impressed with the vocalizations.

"Bravo! Bravo! You three sounded wonderful!"

"Actually," began Adagio Dazzle, "our voices sounded a lot better before our old necklaces broke..."

"No sweetie," Sapphire Shores replied, "you still sounded fine! I think I should talk to my manager about you three so he could perhaps sign you a record deal!"

"We could become professional musicians?" asked an astonished Sonata Dusk. "That sounds awesome!"

Sonata Dusk leapt up in the air.

"Finally!" added Aria Blaze. "We can now use our siren abilities for singing other than hypnotizing everypony!"

Suddenly, the Ponyville town clock rang six times, signaling that it was six o'clock sharp. Adagio Dazzle turned to Sapphire Shores.

"Look Sapphire, we have to leave right now. Sorry."

"No really," began Sapphire Shores, "it's okay. I was about to leave right now too! I've gotta go back to Manehattan so I could talk to my manager about this. Also, I've got a tour coming up. Maybe if he signs you a record deal, you could be the opening act of one of my gigs!"

"Sounds like a good idea to me," replied Adagio Dazzle. "We've gotta shed our past images right now."

"Well, it was nice talking to you girls!" spoke Sapphire Shores. "See you later!"

Sapphire Shores sauntered out of Sugarcube Corner. Sunset Shimmer began to wonder if she was ever going to see her again.

"Well, it looks like you three are well on your way to fame here. Maybe I can show Princess Celestia how I've changed."

"Don't give up hope," replied Adagio Dazzle. "Eventually you'll run into her. You could wow her with your social skills and maybe, just maybe, she'll reconsider making you her student again."

"It's a long shot," began Sunset Shimmer, "but it might actually work."

"Just like how our music careers are like right now," added Aria Blaze. "It's sort of up in the air right now, however..."

The Dazzlings and Sunset Shimmer exited Sugarcube Corner and were on their way to the Friendship Rainbow Kingdom castle.


At the same time, the Mane Six were surprised at The Dazzlings' situation. They almost couldn't believe it when Adagio Dazzle first told them that she and her band-mates could possibly become musicians. Rarity saw this as an opportunity to make this situation a major discussion at the dinner table.

"I'm so happy for you three!" added an excited Rarity. "Maybe I can be your wardrobe designer and design all of your clothes for your concerts!"

"I think that's fine with us," Adagio Dazzle replied.

"Well, I'm just the slightest bit jealous of The Dazzlings..."

"Why, darling?" Rarity asked Sunset Shimmer.

"Y'know,' began Sunset Shimmer, "be-be-because they're already getting a great start back in-"

A tear silently rolled down her cheek as Twilight Sparkle got up out of her chair and walked over to her.

"It'll be okay, Sunset. You'll eventually find out what you'll do."

"What I want to do is get back on Princess Celestia's good side," spoke Sunset Shimmer.

"I believe that'll be very difficult," spoke Twilight Sparkle. "She still doesn't know if you've changed or not."

"Why not make a special trip to Canterlot?" suggested Rarity. "You could tell her there."

"Maybe I'm better off just sending her a simple letter," Twilight Sparkle replied. "After all, I don't always have to make a special trip for anything when I'm a princess."

Spike got up out of his seat. "I'll start composing a letter right away, your-"

"Spike, I'll do it later. Right now, we have to eat dinner."

Right after dinner, everypony but Sunset Shimmer and The Dazzlings went home. Spike walked up to Twilight Sparkle:

"I'm going where you're going, Twi."

"Spike, it's not like I'm the fastest letter writer in Equestria or something," Twilight Sparkle spoke. "Wait with Sunset Shimmer and The Dazzlings."

Spike obeyed her order and walked next to Sunset Shimmer. Twilight Sparkle then walked into her bedroom, grabbed parchment paper, ink, and a quill with her magic, and started writing a letter:

Dear Princess Celestia,

After we defeated The Dazzlings (we are currently working to reform them now), I've seen how your former student Sunset Shimmer is changing too. She helped me back in Canterlot High with locating The Dazzlings in the first place and we're currently working to reform them. Sunset Shimmer has changed, and I know that. Please request her to travel to Canterlot to see you.

Your former student,

Twilight Sparkle
