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...

100 things about me

"Girls!" Miss Cheerilee cried.

Me and Dimond Tiara looked up in shock.

"This is not the kind of behaviour I expect from you." She traced her eyes over both of us as she said this, carefully taking in the looks of pure shock written all over our faces.

"As punishment I expect to see 100 things about yourselves on my desk by tomorrow morning. You shall then read it out loud to the whole class."

Wow. This was harsh. I know that I wanted to get revenge on Dimond Tiara for landing me in hospital, but even I thought this was a step too far, especially since the punishment was for the both of us, all I had done was give Dimond Tiara a taste of her own medicine, what's the harm in that?! But it was clear that Miss Cheerilee wasn't going to change her mind, so as soon as school was over I got started on my list.


The first thing that you should know about me is that my name is Princess. I've never really liked my name, this is because I was bullied because of my name when I was a lot younger, ponies used to say to me that I didn't deserve my name, that I'd never be a princess in a million years, that a mule would have more of a chance of becoming a princess then I did, so as I grew older I tended not to tell ponies my name, I avoided the topic.

Before I came to Ponyville I lived in Manehatten.

When I lived in Manehatten, I was scared of how ponies would react to an alicorn like me, so I hid my wings and horn by wearing a cloak and trinity hat.

In Manehatten, my best friend was a pony called Babs Seed, she was the only pony that I ever told about me being an alicorn because I felt as though she was the only pony I could trust. When I first found out that I was moving to Ponyville, I was really nervous, so I told Babs Seed and she calmed me down, telling me that everypony would love me, just the way I am.

I've always admired Princess Luna. This is because she is a naturally born alicorn, like me, and before she came back as Nightmare Moon, nopony even knew that there was another Princess, and nopony really knows me either, except for Babs Seed, maybe.

I only moved to Ponyville after an accident in Manehatten, in which my identity as another alicorn was revealed.

When I was younger, my magic was extremely weak, all the unicorns that I knew used to be able to move things easily with their horn, and others could even do basic level magic tricks, but I could only just manage a small spark.

I don't normally talk about what happened in Manehatten, but I think that you should know; I was in the park where I normally met up with Babs Seed, but she was running late. Then suddenly I heard her shouting for help. When I had been practicing on my own, I had only managed the smallest of all sparks, but now my friend was in danger, and I needed to get there for her as soon as possible, so I took off my cloak and trinity hat and used all the strength I had to power my horn. It was a struggle, but I finally managed to use my magic to teleport to Babs Seed. She was surrounded by all the same ponies that had said all those nasty things about my name, and I wasn't going to let them get away with it! I flapped my wings as hard as I could, thrusting me up into the air. The girls watched in astonishment as I summoned all my magic and in one mighty blast, I turned them all into ginger bread ponies, just because it was the first thing I could think of. I swooped back down, my outbursts of magic had left me tired and exhausted, I fell flat on the pavement gasping for air. Babs laughed at my ginger bread ponies, I guess that they're not that scary when they've been covered in frosting! But, now that I had made my point, it was time to turn them back to normal. This was a problem. I had used most of my energy just teleporting there, but then I had also turned them into ginger bread ponies, I was completely drained. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't turn them back to normal. I thought that they were going to stay like that forever, but luckily there was now a rather large group of ponies that had came to watch this dramatic scene, thinking that it was probably just some kind of street play. One of them must have figured out that something was wrong because suddenly gasps started coming from the audience like dominoes. Then, out of nowhere, a brown coloured stallion stepped out from the crowd, a unicorn! This was a massive relief, he seemed to know what he was doing at least. He whisked up a massive spell, carrying the ginger bread ponies above our heads, before changing them all back into normal ponies again, and gently lowering them to the ground. The crowd cheered. The girls just stared at me at first, but then they soon run off, shivering. I was still dazed by the fact that I had managed to teleport there AND turn those ponies into ginger bread ponies, but then I noticed that everypony was looking at me and whispering. Everypony knew now that I was an alicorn. No alicorns live in Manehatten, so I decided to move to Ponyville where Twilight Sparkle lives, simply because she is an alicorn now, so I figured that the ponies here would be used to alicorns and would just accept me for who I am, like Babs had told me.

I have a strange obsession with ginger bread. I don't know why, but I just love it! My mum used to work at a bakery, so I guess that I just kind of, grew up with it.

Both my parents are Pegasus ponies, but for some reason I'm an alicorn. Nopony knows how I got to be an alicorn, or why I'm an alicorn, but I am an alicorn, hence the name Princess.

I hate flying. I'm actually really good at flying, my mum and dad both wanted me to be a wonderbolt, but the problem is I just hate it! I'm terrified of heights and I can't stand being up in the air, drawing attention to myself, everypony staring at me, seeing that I am an alicorn. Even if I was to wear a hat, it may blow off in a breeze, and then everypony would know that I'm an alicorn. I suppose that this doesn't matter anymore, everypony knows that I'm an alicorn now, but I'm still scared of heights and that will never change!

I don't have my cutie mark yet.

I haven't been able to use my magic ever since the incident in Manehatten, but I so hope that I shall be able to someday, so I guess that for now I'll just have to keep trying.

My favourite colour is blue.

I have a pet goldfish called Bubbles.

My mums cutie mark is a ginger bread pony... Yet another reason why I love them so much!

I have an older sister that lives in CloudsDale. Her name is Lightning Strike, her cutie mark is a cloud spilt in half by a bolt of lightning. She is a Pegasus, just like the rest of my family.

My dads cutie mark is a pair of wings with a cloud in the middle.

My mum has a pink coat and a silver mane and tail. My dad has a white coat with a purple mane and tail. My sister has a pink coat with a purple mane and tail.

My first words were 'Ginger bread.'

I am allergic to pineapple.

In my life time I have made 362 ginger bread ponies and counting.

I get really easily paranoid. I know it's not a very nice thing to have on the list, but it's true.

When I was a baby, I apparently painted myself pink to look like mummy!

I have 25 spell books, even though I'm not that great at magic.

When I was packing for Ponyville, the first thing I put in my suitcase was some ginger bread!

My hair is naturally curly.

I once put a collar around Bubbles' tank and took him for a walk.

I write to my sister every week.

I really want to visit my sister, but because I'm scared of heights, I'm terrified of going to CloudsDale to see her.

Luckily, I can still see my sister because she comes to visit us at least once a month.

I used to be the smartest pony in my class, but then I got scared that ponies would think that I was a nerd, so I cut down on my revision time.

I have never performed in a single play in my entire life, I would like to, but I don't like drawing attention to myself, so I don't.

My dream is to become a poet, and preform my best work to Princess Luna.

I love poetry, it's possibly my favourite pass time.

The first poem I ever wrote was about ginger bread.

My favourite time of the year is winter because I adore snow. It's also the best time for me personally because I can play hide and seek with my friends and they shall never find me because I can lay on the floor and my white coat blends in with the snow.

I read a book every night.

My parents used to think that because I was good at flying I would also be good other sports, so they entered me into every single athletics team they could think of, but I came last in all of them.

Despite my favourite colour being blue, everything inside my bedroom is pink, even my books!

The only thing in my bedroom that is not pink is Bubbles' tank, and Bubbles himself.

I haven't played a video game in years, this is because every time I start playing a video game, I just can't stop! Once, I played a video game for 2 days running without taking a break. My dad had to prize me apart from my controller.

Before I met Babs Seed, my only friend was Bubbles.

I have a pair of pink reading glasses, but I tend not to use them in public, even though I really should.

I once won 100 ginger bread ponies as part of a competition, delicious!

I have a brother that I have never met before, so I don't really know much about him, other then he ran away when he was just a colt and ponies have been unable to track him down.

We light a candle for my brother each year, hoping that he shall come home someday.

Even though I'm allergic to it, I love the smell of pineapple.

I can balance a pen on my muzzle.

I have only ever been invited to two birthday parties, my sister's and Babs Seed's.

I am EXTREMELY ticklish! I once had a tickle fight against a pony 2 years younger than me, and they won. I was out within the first 30 seconds.

The only smell I love more than pineapple is ginger bread!

Ginger bread is the only thing I've ever managed to successfully bake.

I can't stand photos of myself so I try to avoid cameras.

I invented tickle fights before I realised just how ticklish I was.

When I was younger, I asked my mum if I could marry a ginger bread pony. That didn't go down well.

I painted an entire book shelf all by myself!

When I am bored, I write stories to as well as poems.

I once won an award for 'most creative poem'. This was for a poem I had written about goldfish.

My tail and mane used to be really long, but I kept tripping up over them so I had them cut short.

Everypony in my family has got blue eyes, including me.

I have written 12 poems about ginger bread, 33 poems about goldfish and 62 in total.

I love to sing, but I'm not very good at it.

I once dressed as a ginger bread pony for nightmare night.

The following year I dressed as a goldfish.

I have kept a diary ever since I could write.

The first diary entry I ever wrote was about ginger bread.

Bubbles was given to me as a reward from my parents for winning a baking competition, the same one as which I won 100 ginger bread ponies.

My sister has a pet cloud called 'Ginger Bread'. She told me that she named it to remind her of me, because I love ginger bread so much.

My sister thinks that a cloud is suitable for a pet, even though I've told her several times that it's not.

Neither of my parents have a pet.

Although I really love ginger bread, I also love lots of other tasty treats, my second favourite treat, obviously after ginger bread, are cupcakes.

I love brain teasers.

Even though I hate flying , I love playing on the swings at the park because I can hold on which makes me feel safe.

The first friend I made in Ponyville was AppleBloom.

My friends are Babs Seed, AppleBloom, Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo, Bubbles and my sister.

I have not ate a single piece of ginger bread since I came to Ponyville.

I am now a cutie mark crusader.

Apparently, I'm competing in the sisterhooves social, even though I barely know what it is.

Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon asked me to teleport to the top of a building and fly back down again, which gave me a massive panic attack because I can't teleport and even if I could I'm scared of heights. This got me so freaked out that I fainted, resulting in me getting into hospital!

When I was unconscious after I had fainted, I had several flashbacks to times from my past. Including meeting Babs Seed.

I awoke in hospital, greeted by Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo.

The following night I had a dream about revenge, in which I met my idol, Princess Luna!

I stole Diamond Tiara's tiara, not because I want to be a princess, which I don't, but simply because I wanted revenge for her landing me in hospital!

I don't want to be a princess, ponies only think that because I'm an alicorn.

I hid Diamond Tiara's tiara underneath my pillow at the hospital, but I left it there by mistake and now I can't get it back.

I hate Diamond Tiara and I shall never forgive her for getting me into hospital. I hate Silver Spoon too, but she doesn't bug me as much as Diamond Tiara, I just wish she wouldn't go along with everything that Diamond Tiara says, that's all.

I still want to get my revenge on Silver Spoon, though it won't be as harsh as Diamond Tiara's.

I moved to Ponyville because they already have an alicorn so I thought I might fit in, but I haven't seen the princess at all.

I have eaten 9 cupcakes since I moved to Ponyville.

I love to watch plays and imagine myself in them.

I don't like rain, in fact, I hate it, this is because whenever my mane and tail get wet, they spring back to their normal curly state which takes me FOREVER to straighten again!

I only have one picture of my brother. Unfortunately, it's not that clear, but you can still make out his blue eyes and wide smile.

When I was younger, I wanted to become a detective so that I could track down my brother, but unfortunately, I'm no good at that kind of thing.

I polish my hooves every weekend.

Apparently, my brother used to like ginger bread just as much as I do, if not even more. Now THAT is impossible!

I love ice cream in the summer, but nowhere near as much as I love ginger bread!

I have got a cloud shaped locket that has a picture of my sister inside, it means everything to me, more than ginger bread.

I am so tired of writing, my hoof aches, I love writing, but not this much!

I'm going to get some ginger bread!



Phew! That took almost ALL night! But now I had to read it to the ENTIRE class! I was shaking. I couldn't do it. Some of those things were personal. Oh, why did I write them?! It was too late to cross them out, I didn't have enough time to write in some new answers, I was tired and I wanted to eat some ginger bread and go to bed. What was I going to do NOW?!

Author's Note:

This chapter took me ages to write! Thinking of 100 random facts about my OC is actually a lot harder than it looks, but I still had a lot of fun making up crazy things! Don't even ask about the ginger bread, it's the first thing I could think of...

I'm not sure if I actually managed 100 or 99 but STILL!!!

I haven't had time to check it through properly, so I'm relying on all the nit-Pickers out there to let me know if I've put some facts twice or possibly contradicted something I've already said. I know you won't let me down! I will check through this properly when I get the chance though.

Okay, I hope that you enjoyed this. Please give it a thumbs up if you like it, it really helps.
:raritywink: Bye!
