The Other Alicorn - The Corn

Everypony loves a Princess. They'd do anything just to catch a glimpse of Celestia or Luna, they'd fly all the way to the Crystal Empire to see Cadence and they act all sweet around Twilight Sparkle, but what about me? Nopony even knows my name...

  • ...

The final straw.

When the meeting was finally over I headed for the door, but the three fillies stopped me in my tracks, completely blocking my path.

"Where are you going?" Sweetie Belle cried. "We've only just finished our meeting, and now that you're now a cutie mark crusader, you can join us preparing for the sisterhooves social!"

I'd only just moved to Ponyville, I had no idea what a 'sisterhooves social' was, even if there was one back in Manehatten, I'd never heard of it, now I was expected to prepare for one with these three fillies that I'd only just met!

"Um, what's a sisterhooves social?" I asked, nervously. The three fillies gasped.

"Babs never told ya bout' the sisterhooves social?!" Apple Bloom cried.

"N-no?" I stammered.

"You sure about that?" Said the orange pony. Funny how I'd been there for what seemed like forever, and yet I still failed to remember her name. But I suppose that doesn't really matter, and neither did it right then. Nopony knows my name either... Yet.

Where was I? Ahh, yes, the orange pony said;

"You sure about that?" Apple Bloom shot her a dirty look.

"What?!" The orange pony shot back. Apple Bloom rolled her eyes, then she looked back at me.

"Never mind her, the sisterhooves social is when sisters get together to compete in games and have fun! Ah'm competing with Applejack, Sweetie Belle here is competing with her sister , Rarity, an Scootaloo is competing with... Wait, who are ya competing with?" Everyone turned to the orange pony, finally, I knew her name! Scootaloo! Scootaloo looked up and smiled smugly.

"Oh, nopony... Only the most awesome pony in the whole of Equestria!" Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle looked at each other.

"Fluttershy?" Sweetie Belle questioned.

"No!" Cried Scootaloo.

"Pinkie Pie?" Asked Apple Bloom.

"No, she's the best flyer in Ponyville." Scootaloo hinted.

"Twilight Sparkle?" Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle both said together.

"No, no ,no ,no ,no!" Scootaloo shouted.

I used this opportunity to leave. They were all so caught up trying to figure out who this awesome pony was that they didn't even notice that I was gone!

On the way home I bumped into the pink pony from my class, quite literally, I almost knocked her flying!

"Hay, watch it!" She whined before looking up to see who I was. Her friend sneered.

" Well, won't you look at that?! It's that wanna-be new kid!" The pink pony laughed at this remark before joining in for herself.

"Why you running so fast, newbie?! You just can't wait to get away from those cutie mark cry-babies, can you?!" She glanced over at her friend before continuing, "I'm just glad that I've got my cutie mark! I'd hate to know that I wasn't special, it must be sooo embarrassing!"

I didn't know what to do. Part of what she was saying was true, I don't have my cutie mark, but it doesn't mean I'm not special! I couldn't let her get away with this, I had to do something! But what? I did the first thing I could think of, say something.

"Well, I'm more special then the likes of YOU! It's not everypony that gets to be an alicorn!" I would have carried on, but the pink pony interrupted me.

"And that's another thing! Not only are you a blank flank, but an alicorn too? It must be really hard for you, drawing attention to yourself, well, with being an alicorn and all, and yet, not having any special talents to show off. That's REALLY unfortunate!"

I didn't know what to say to that. Was she trying to wind me up, or was she actually feeling sorry for me? I just didn't know anymore. So I just told the truth.

"Actually, I quite like being an alicorn, it means that everypony likes me. Everypony loves an alicorn."

"You really believe that?!" The pink pony snapped, " I'll tell you what everypony likes, a PRINCESS, not some princess wanna-be that has clearly had some kind of magic spell put on her to make her an alicorn! Nopony likes a show off, NOPONY!"

So that's what they think of me, I thought. That I'm just some fake. I'm not really an alicorn and that I'm desperate to be a princess. That I had a spell put on me to give me a horn and wings. That I'm just some unwanted wanna-be with no special talents. But none of that's true, I'm not a fake, I've always been an alicorn, I'm not desperate to be a princess, and I've never even been near a magic spell! Although, it's true I don't have a cutie mark, so maybe it's true that I'm unwanted, maybe all the ponies in Ponyville only care for ponies WITH a cutie mark! But, they do seem to care for alicorns, so maybe if I could prove that I'm not a fake, then ponies would love me, like I thought they would.

"I am a real alicorn." I proclaimed. The pink pony and her friend just looked at each other.

"Prove it!"
"How?" I asked. The pink pony stopped in thought.

"Well, I have an idea, but it's probably too babyish for you!" I was determined to prove myself.

"Name it!" I cried.
