My Best Friend: Sunset Shimmer - PinkieLunaShy

When Sunset Shimmer arrives through the portal, she meets an interesting girl. Is she just using her or is she want to be her friend?

  • ...


I set my tray down at the lunch table, waiting for the other guys to show up. Poem had an emergency theater practice so he was skipping lunch today. Surprisingly my day was pretty normal, of course Sunset was in most of my classes, but she was cordial.

I stared at the food on my tray, the joys of a tasteless lunch. Its supposed to be healthier but it really just tastes bland and cardboardish.

Beside me I heard a tray being set on the table, "Hey."

I glanced up and saw her. She wasn't wearing a skirt today, and she looked sporty. I fixed my gaze on my food, ignoring her presence.

Sunset huffed, "Aren't you going to reply?"

I rolled my eyes as Olive set down his tray on the other side of me. He sat down with a huff and slammed his head on the table, nearly missing his tray. Eve set his tray next to Olive's before giving a light wave to Sunset.

"Oh, hello Sunset." Eve smiled, "Did Plushy help you yesterday?"

If looks could kill, mine would've killed Eve, revived him and killed him again.

"She did." Sunset glared at me.

"Why are you here?" I asked, pushing the food around on my tray.

"Because I wanted to give you something." Sunset set a small stack of clothes with a set of shoes on top in front of me.

It was an outfit I looked at yesterday, I didn't get it because it was way out of my budget range. I looked at her, not with awe and gratitude, but with anger. I slid the clothes back towards her, and continued pushing my food around on my tray.

"What? Wrong size?" Sunset questioned, "Its my way of apologizing for what I said yesterday."

"Its a bribe. I don't take bribes." I replied, opening my juice.

Sunset's mouth fell open, "It is not, you ungrateful little brat! I was trying to be nice!"

"Go 'be nice' someplace else then."

Sunset slid the pile back over to me, "These are yours. They don't fit me and I'm not returning them."

I was about to give another retort when Rarity came rushing up to our table, "Oh my! Pardon my intrusion but might those be the sports apparel from that store in the mall? I've been trying to save up for these, but they are just so expensive!"

"Yeah. You want 'em?" I asked Rarity, watching as her eyes lit up.

"Really? Are you sure, darling? These look like they cost you a lot." Rarity raised an eye brow.

"Su-" I started, only to be cut off my Sunset.

"No. If you want a set, save up your money and buy them yourself. Those are my gift to her." Sunset glared at Rarity, causing Rarity to recoil.

"What Sunset means is, she bought those for Plushy." Eve glared at me, "It must have slipped her mind. Right, Plushy?"

"Sure." I replied giving Rarity an apologetic look, "Sorry Rare. You can borrow them sometime if you'd like."

"Thank you." Rarity pulled out her glasses and lifted the shirt out of the pile, "I really just wanted to see what it's made of, that way I could make a set out of similar material."

"Then go look at them at a store!" Sunset snatched the shirt out of Rarity's hands causing the purplette to jump.

"Hey!" I shouted, yanking the shirt out of Sunset's grasp and giving it back to Rarity, "I said she could borrow them if she wanted, they're mine aren't they?"

Sunset turned and huffed before stabbing an apple slice from her tray. Rarity looked between the two off us with a slight smirk. I had only know Rarity for maybe a year but I knew enough that that smirk was never good.

"Don't you dare say it." I growled, glaring at the now fully formed smile threatening to break Rarity's face in half.

"I haven't the foggiest idea what you are talking about." Rarity hummed, slipping her glasses back into there case, "Thank you for letting me take a look at these, darling. I truly appreciate it!"

"No problem." I watched as Rarity walked back to her table before looking at Olive, who was still face down on the table, "What's his problem?"

"He and Rainbow ran another race this morning through the halls. He got caught by Principal Celestia and now has detention this afternoon given its the third time she's warned him about this." Eve sighed, poking Olive in the shoulder.

"How was I supposed to know she'd be coming around the corner right then? And Rainbow Dash fucking disappeared!" Olive sat up, his left eye sporting a blueish purple ring under it.

"Good gravy man! What happened to your eye hole?" I turned Olive's face towards mine and looked at the ring, much to his annoyance.

"Did I forget to mention he ran straight into Principal Celestia's elbow?" Eve rubbed his chin, "It was an interesting sight."

Olive jerked away as my fingers lightly touched the bruise, "I bet Rainbow stopped running cause she knew she would lose!"

Before I could retort, the bell rang signaling lunch was over and we had three minutes to get to our next class. Sighing I tossed the clothes in my bag before slinging it over my shoulder and dumping my tray. As I wove between students in an attempt to get to algebra on time I realized one thing.

I threw my notebook in the trash while dumping my tray.


The stare of hundreds of students landed on me, causing a furious blush to appear on my face. I stammered and stuttered trying to fix my embarrassing mistake only to look up when a hand laid on my shoulder.

"Come with me young lady." Vice Principal Luna looked down at me before guiding me into her office.


That's how anybody would describe Vice Principal Luna. While her sister was fairly warm, even when you got in trouble, Ms. Luna seemed cold all the time. It was like a shark staring at a guppie, you automatically had an urge to start saying "ma'am" and talk with the best grammar possible.

"Principal Celestia and I are very lenient when it comes to profanity in school, but we don't tolerate yelling it at the top of your lungs in the hallways." Ms. Luna look at me over her shoulder.

"Yes ma'am..." I mumbled, my face heating up again, "Sorry ma'am..."

"This is the second time this has happened with you in the past week. Is something wrong Ms. Star?" Luna turned and looked me in the eyes.

"No ma'am..." I shook my head softly.

"When fortune knock-knock-knocks, It ain't a trick trick trick! And we can live like new as (wow wow) freely tomorrow!"

Ms. Luna's eyebrow raised as I dug around my backpack for my phone. Of all the days for my phone to not be on silent. Pulling it out I quickly set it to silent, but not before my eyes read one of the texts from my brother. I hastily closed my backpack and slung it over my shoulder.

"I have to go!" I knew I couldn't sign myself out, but I needed to go.

"What happened?" Luna grabbed my shoulder and turned me to face her.

"My mom," I blinked back the tears that threatened to fall, "She's been in an accident!"

Author's Note:

Son of bitch is not a typo I didn't miss the 'a'.

The song is Japanese so I just put the English lyrics because it seemed easier.

Well, tooooooo the hospital we go! Hey, you get to meet Plushy's brother!

Gee I hope her mom is alright...
