It's an intriguing story, and I much enjoyed it

A solid little one shot.

HOW DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE VIEWS??? To start off, I feel bad because I am just now getting around to reading this and how I've missed out on reading this wonderful oneshot. Now, let's get onto the story:

-That opening line. Dude, seriously, what an opener! So simple, yet so thought-provoking. I had to find out who the speaker was, and I had to wonder... How was this going to affect DD? Was this the starting point of him going to the Town? (It totes was, and I love that)

-Double Diamond is solid, and it gives more depth to him, which I always love for characters. His thoughts are so realistic and so relatable... I've been where he's been, wondering about my purpose and how that purpose can affects others. That feeling of thinking that the thing that makes special isn't so special after all... Really puts into perspective of DD ended up in the Town.

-Starlight! She's so wonderfully in character! So cunning, but who could ever guess that? Honestly, had I not known about what the Town was really going to be about, I would have joined the same as DD. You really captured Starlight's ability to bring others in with her care and support, but also that underlying darkness the dwells beneath the surface. Meanwhile, DD doesn't have a clue (and anyone in his shoes would be the same).

I love this story, and I'm putting it on my shelf!

Pretty solid short one-shot, with a bit of development on Double Diamond's part as to his joining Starlight Glimmer. I would suppose Starlight claims that the Equal Mark IS her original Cutie Mark, if only so DD isn't suspicious as to why her Cutie Mark wasn't in the Vault to begin with.

Man, I can't believe I didn't find this puppy sooner. What a great one-shot! A couple of minor errors here and there, but the tales make up for it. Upped and faved!
