We’ve got dents and we’ve got quirks, but it’s our flaws that make us work.


Starlight Glimmer goes to the market to buy things and make new friends.

Both of those things are made incredibly difficult by the ponies at the market.

“There ain’t a changeling for miles around now.”
A changeling walked up to Cherry Cobbler. “Could I have a cherry?”
“Sure thing, Kevin! That’ll be one bit.”

Dammit, Syeekoh Kevin! :facehoof:

Starlight eyes wettened.

I'd have gone with "moistened" myself, but eh.

Glad you put something out. Been a while.

6770099 I'm glad to have put something out.:twilightsmile:

And the moment just spoke to me.:ajsmug:

Okay. Seriously. Has nobody ever heard of an alternate universe? As in, the one they're not in?

Other than that, well done.

6770143 I imagine it must be somewhat of an alien concept for those not drowning in media that explores the concept.

And thank you.:twilightsmile:

My pleasure, mate!

I feel like this would've benefitted a lot if you'd have extended this a little bit. Right now, it just feels like Starlight had a problem, AJ comes along and fixes it, and then heartfelt speech and fade to black. Nothing at all wrong with the concept, I like that quite a bit.

... considering the number of vengeance fics that I've seen as well as those fics that went along some expected lines, to see something so gash durned normal earns this piece a like from me.

6770197 I suppose I could have. I'll have to remember that in the future. I'm glad you liked the concept, though!

6770199 This is the first time I've been praised for normality. Thank you.

Sometimes a writer as abnormal as Syeekoh must put out something more normal every now and then to maintain his abnormality.

She chucked as Starlight put the carrots in her saddlebags.

What did she chuck? Or did she "chuckle"?

With all the winking Applejack was doing, I am starting to think it was her idea to overcharge Starlight. To be completely fair to her, it was only twice, but they were at odd intervals of time.

Manhandling (Stallionhandling?) ponies, blackmailing them, threatening them, masterminding the extortion of Starlight? This Applejack reminded me of the Applejack from Ultra Fast Pony. So much so that I started reading her lines with an Irish brogue. However, I am not complaining, I am happy. We need more Ultra Fast Pony based stories on this site.


UFP is seriously underrated.

6770249 It's pretty much the only "abridged series" style fanwork of this show that I don't utterly despise. Though I've only seen a couple clips of UFP. Have they gotten to season 3 yet?

6770223 Np, dude. Really, just a little fleshing out for the conflict and it'd really pop, I think. The concept alone is quite believable, though, and something I could see coming into play in the actual show if they decide to go that route.

I suppose that depends if Pinkie and Rainbow keep their mouths shut >.>

What do you think of Spike and Starlight as a couple?

6770318 Show accurate... that's not something I thought I'd ever hear about one of my fics. o_O

But yeah, I guess I could look it over in the next few days and see where to flesh it out.

6770328 Don't let your dreams be dreams.

6770366 Believe me, I'm hiding in my bunker. This is truly a sign of the endtimes.

Syeekoh pls

I enjoyed reading this fic since it addresses one of the obstacles that Starlight may face when she tries to get used to living in Ponyville, which involves interacting with ponies other than the mane six. :twilightsmile:

Nice job, definitely feels like it could be a scene from upcoming Season 6, as I assume at least one episode of that season will deal with Starlight Glimmer learning how to be a good friend.

6770564 I seem to be getting that a lot, so I must have done something right.


6770276 Actually, Wacarb is in the middle of season four.

Pointing out a story's perfect rating is a surefire way to attract troll downvotes.

6770579 It's another thing the TF2 lady says. Also potentially a reference to you jinxing the "no dislikes" streak. :derpytongue2:

Wow, this was a really good story! As others have said, it seems just like something we'll hope to see in the next season!

It looks like Starlight is the new Fluttershy.
Seems that she could do with a few lessons with the dude in my avatar.
P.S Kevin needs his own fan club. Get on it.

Fine. Please accept my apology in the form of an image:

6770771 Thank you. That seems to be a rather popular sentiment.

*Insert joke about Starlight and a big bag of crabs*

Okay, the fic was great in its own right, but then you had to throw Kevin in there?


Anyone who overcharged my friend Starlight Glimmer here, give me the bits you fleeced her or I’ll let Big Mac know what you think about fair and honest business!


People usually try to say that the people of city is kinda cold and jerk while the countryside has warm heart or so. The truth is countryside is far more stubborn, more jerk, and more sneaky when they tr6 to take advantage of sb or sth.
Srsly, what is so good reason that overcharge somone who was evil...and they do ever think about the consequences?


Didn't you read the ending? Starlight still retains her ability to manipulate people through words.

Nice story! I like how you characterized Starlight.

6770612 Oh, god, I can only imagine how he handled episodes like A Canterlot Wedding, The Crystal Empire, and Magical Mystery Cure...

...UFP's take on Canterlot Wedding can't possibly be worse than FiW's take on the episode at least.

Heh, poor Glim Glams. :ajsmug:

This was a good one, Majin. You did good.

6771584 Thank you! It was a little tough to pin her down, honestly.

I was expecting ....I don't know...porn, weird fetish, self-insert-power-bullshit-story, anything with anon.....

And you gave me something that I could actually see in an episode.

You have surprised me, good job

6772815 I'm apparently good at surprising people,

Am I the only one who could easily see this story as a Season 6 episode?

The beginning of one, perhaps. The pre-credits intro plus a few minutes after.
Needs moar though.

Man, great fic! Really nailed down Starlight's personality I'd think. As other people have said, feels like something from the show as well. Insta-fav for me. ^^

Oddly enough, this actually feels more complete to me in the original 750-word minific. I feel like it's caught in this weird place where it's more complete as a story less than half its current size, but incomplete until it's expanded even further.

You can either take the cherry I’m offering you for fifty bits or leave cherryless.

So, she'd either be screwed over or left without her cherry. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of a paradox :pinkiehappy:
