I live on a farm of plotbunnies.

It had seemed like a good idea at the time, until Sunset actually read what Twilight wrote in her letter. She'd already said yes to seeing Celestia again, and she wouldn't go back on her word. As long as she remained convinced that this was a good idea and that it would all end well, she could get through it without a problem.

Straight to the point and super-sweet... nothing wasted and feels like a scene straight from the show itself, :pinkiehappy:

Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed it and thought it would fit the show. :twilightsmile:

D'awww. Handled so beautifully.

This HAS to happen at some point in Equestria Girls...or at least some kind of contact between the 2.

I'm definitely hoping! I would love to see Celestia and Sunset reconcile in Equestria Girls. Until then, it's fun fanfic fuel.

SunLight or not, this is beautiful as it is. :pinkiesad2:

This story was great! I enjoyed reading this a lot!

Aww. Adorable fuzzy story. Take a like.

High quality in writing - just as expected from Rad. Great work!

Thanks. I've always had a soft spot for Celestia and Sunset, so when I saw the word prompt it was the first thing I thought of. :twilightsmile:

Thank you very much!

Aw, thank you, I'm flattered.:twilightblush: I'm glad you liked it!

That ending was really sweet. No additional words needed to be said between Sunset and Celestia for us to understand... It is a nice change of pace from the common Sunset breakdown speech too. Another great story!

Thank you! I actually pondered having a Sunset breakdown speech, but so many fics have already had their shots at it that I felt like I was retreading old territory.

5937390

You're welcome! ^-^

Yeah, I know what you mean. I feel like this was a good direction to take though; it fit in with the internal nature of the rest of the fic before it.

Would love to see a story from you that isn't just a short novel. Do you plan any episodic type, longer fics?

5938816

I have a few longer fics in mind; the one that will probably be written relatively soon (hopefully sometime this week) is an iPod shuffle challenge that I want to do for Sunset and Twilight. That would probably come out to ten chapters depending on how many songs I go for.

and then celestia pile dives sunset shimmer the end- XD

I hope, one day, they do a movie with the redemption of Sunset Shimmer. I didn't like her much, at first, but she has grown on me. I would like to see her and Celestia make up.

They've left her whole arc with Celestia very open, so here's hoping.

This is pretty much everything I could hope for from a Sunset and Celestia reunion. Perfect.

All your stories (well, the three I've read) make great use of repetition. I've loved all three but I have to say they seem a little too similar. The scenarios are all different but they follow the pattern of Twilight or Sunset having a problem, denying it, then having the other one help then through it. I'd have to say Long Distance is my favorite, but I'm not sure if that's because it's the best or because I read that one first before it could feel formulaic.

I don't mean to imply this story want great, it was. But I'm mostly looking forward to reading your multi chapter stories, both Now You Need Us and the iPod shuffle story if you write it. You do a great job at showing there's a lot more going on with the characters than we're seeing in any one story, which is fantastic, but it always leaves me wanting more.

This was a story that wasted no words; there's no flab to it at all. Well done!

Beautiful. You captured it perfectly. After all, Celestia was like a mother to her, and what mother would not eagerly await the day their child comes back home safe and sound?

Having her simply say, "I'm back," was perfect.

You certainly nailed Sunset's inner struggles down about perfect for how I expect her personality would be post-EG. Really, the only thing I might have added would be a short scene or the like earlier on of her getting moral support from her CHS friends, though that would make the story less short and sweet.

Very nice. I keep wishing that the movies will actually do something like this, but it never seems to come. Good thing we have stories like this one.

A maxi drabble, this is one of a few that I've liked a _lot_ better reading it the second time. I'm not 100% sure why but I think it's because the first time I was consumed with curiousity what would happen. But the second time I was paying more attention to Sunset Shimmer and I liked the sorrow and vulnerability that she braved.

It was sort of the equivalent of one of those "duels fought only by a staring contest" in Japan, an emotional event that didn't need a huge, ornate physical event to underscore its significance and depth.

May your powers increase.

(Note: I generally mark drabbles one star lower than full stories for quirky personal reasons that are half academic and half subjective.)

Short and sweet. Nicely done.

Hi Mrs. Beam! Just wanted to say I absolutely love your story. I love how you explored Sunsets feelings. Super good job.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed my story and my take on Sunset and her thoughts. :twilightsmile:

This was really nice! :pinkiehappy:

Just a missing period after "the warmest hug Sunset had ever gotten in her life", which is a great way to end this! :twilightsmile:

Here is your Appropriate Orchestral Track for this story:

Yes! So beautiful! Heartwarming! I love it! Wonderful work! Keep it up!!! Sunset Shimmer stories forevvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeer!!!!

I am so okay with this. Sunset is me, honestly, cause that's how I'd react. Guh, crying happy tears, ignore me.

Short but beautifully sweet. I'm sorry I never read it before now. Thank you for it.

But still, she didn’t move. For a long moment she simply stood there, eyes closed, listening to Twilight and Celestia speak. The princess of the sun was so close, and finally Sunset took a deep, shaking breath as she opened her eyes.

Cap.

rereading this. And it's an amazing story.

Hilarious in hindsight now that we've seen the real deal.
