I live on a farm of plotbunnies.


It's morning in the human world, and Sunset wants to show Twilight something before the sun comes up.

That was cute :rainbowkiss:
I'm a big fan of romance in small moments, and the waking up scene was pretty much adorable. Sleepy Twi is best Twi. Either that scene or Twilight and Sunset's teasing banter throughout was the best part, although Twilight wondering how the sun moves was still pretty amusing :scootangel:

I have absolutely no problems with Sunlight fluff. :twilightsmile: I'm also very happy that its Princess Twilight and Sunset, most other recent fics have been about Sci-Twi (which is fine too, but I prefer the former pairing). And pony Twilight has probably done a lot more running (towards or away from danger) than her human counterpart. One of my favorite parts of the pairing is their shared background as Celestia's students, so its very sweet to see them enjoy a more... gradual sunrise. It would be a big difference for both of them to see that kind of sunrise, given their close association with Celestia. That and its just fun to see them together. *adds to favorites*

You can never have enough SunLight fluff. :raritystarry:

Anyways, this was really cute. You did bring up a good point; I never even thought of the fact that Princess Twilight hasn't ever seen the sun rise by itself in the EG universe.


One of my favorite headcanons regarding Twilight is that she's not a morning person (pony?), while in contrast Sunset totally is. It was fun to actually get a chance to write it out and apply it to a scene, even if only a short one for a piece of fluff. :twilightsheepish:


I've been seeing a lot of SciTwi/Sunset Sunlight too, but Princess Twilight/Sunset Sunlight will always be my preferred pair of the two, so I'm glad I could contribute to that at least a little bit!


Truer words have never been typed. :ajsmug:

I love this story! I love all your stories! I don't know, you just write the adorable pony girl bacon human so well! I shall forever follow you! :rainbowwild:


Just as planned. :pinkiehappy:


Thank you very much! I appreciate the follow, and I'm glad you enjoyed the story and that you like how I write Sunset. :twilightsmile:

if only so she wouldn’t give her girlfriend [...] the satisfaction of knowing how much she enjoyed having her hair touched like this.

See, Twi, if you did let her know, you would get lots of hair petting. Sunset is not a meanie.

Adorable little story, and a very cute piece of fluff. It's been a while since I last saw a Princess Twi/Sunset story, and even though I love SciTwi/Sunset as well, there's always going to be something special about the former. The interactions between Twi and Sunset are really adorable, and they make for a believable (and happy) couple. The only complaint is the same for a favorite dish -- namely, that you'll eventually finish and want more. And considering the author's note, that won't be a problem for long.

All in all, wonderful work. :twilightsmile:

Well, there is one difference between Twi and SciTwi's Backgrounds. Twilight goes on almost constant adventures, running around during them and other things. She has had somewhat more physical activity in her life and SciTwi.

I've had a few of your stories in my to-read list, but haven't gotten around to them. I saw this come up in the featured box (congratulations, by the way) and decided to give it a shot.

You have a new follower.

I've never really seen the problem in 'Lavender unicorn syndrome', I've commited it a few times in my own stories, but I can now see the problem with it here. It doesn't wreck the story that much, but there's something that's a bit... uncomfortable in the way the characters are refereed to by so many varying titles. I'd personally recommend just calling the characters by their names a bit more in future works and saving the other nouns for when it seems more necessary. Thats just my opinion though.

Other than that, adorable story! :rainbowkiss: Particular praise goes to your portrayal of the characters.

I give it a 6/10.

Nice, fluffy little read, but it feels like it would've been better served as a scene from a longer Sunlight story.

I don't care if there's no plot. You had me smiling from about the third paragraph until the end of the fic. Nicely done.

Where I live, it's all about the sunsets. A mountain range borders the valley on the east side so the Sun doesn't appear until it's well up, meaning the light is fairly harsh. It's still beautiful, especially with the light splashing over the mountains, and at this time of year the snow-capped peaks make it even better. But in the west... when the Sun sets over the valley the waning light spreads out like a wave. Brilliant yellows make way for captivating oranges that morph into intense reds which finally give in to subtle indigo. When it's a little cloudy, you get all of them at the same time in a masterpiece of natural beauty.

What's even better is I always get to see both of them, since the mountains delay "Sunrise" by about an hour and a half.

Sorry for the random story-time, once again, good job! I enjoyed it a lot. As much as I enjoy the journey toward romance in other stories it's cool to get snippets of the girls already in a relationship.

Pretty nice and brief fic you made, Mr. Beam ^_^ Even if I'm not a big fan of the SunLight concept, I actually enjoyed this one. It felt natural thanks to the effort put into those little adorable things (holding hands, gentle kisses not necessarily in the lips, etc.) and that's something I like and applaud.
So overall, nice 5-10 minutes piece of corny and nice fic :derpytongue2: :heart:

Yeah! RB is back! :pinkiehappy:

Sunlight might be one of my favorite ships, but this was adorable and fluffy and didn't even feel like it was forcing the ship.
I like it. :twilightsmile:

Beautiful little fluff is beautiful! Like, favourite and follow from me! You magnificent bastard! I love it!

This was beautiful oneshot.

Simple, sweet fluffy goodness. :twilightsmile:

Yeah, Equestria Sun is pretty erratic, isn't it? Unlike the smooth arch of our own, Equestria's jumps up really fast, arcs for a bit, than drops down. Or if Lesson Zero is to be taken seriously, it ticks across the sky.

SunLight? Instant fav! :raritystarry:

That was such a sweet story. I love SunLight.

This is an excellent one-shot. I do love fluff where not a lot happens. :eeyup:

More importantly, you got me to upvote and fave a SunLight story. Given that I'm not a big fan of this ship, it's a pretty impressive feat.

(starts applauding) This was so good! Very cute!

nub: Mlg no-scoping jakie chan its time...

I unfortunately didn't have a chance to go back and respond to comments on this fic since it got featured while I was at work, but I just wanted to thank everyone for the likes and the comments. I truly appreciate it and I thank you for any critique, and I'm happy that you enjoyed the story. :pinkiehappy:

This is fluffier than a Siberian Husky puppy. :heart:


Admittedly I too, am in fact sunlight trash. after Rainbow Rocks came out, I've been reading it like it was some sort of addiction, AND YOU'RE NOT HELPING.

I'm a little burnt out over it though, it has to happen eventually (otherwise I would never get my life back) But i have yet to read a good one with Princess Twilight that was more than a simple one time thing. If you haven't done already, which I will assume you haven't, then please finish that supposed not so very short thing so I might have a chance at getting over this ship once and for all, I can only lay my soul, and kindle, to rest once I've read a proper sunlight fic with princess Twilight.

I place my faith in you.


all characters in this comments are tryhards...

fucking tryhards, they are fucking everywhere

FWIW, I think that the Equestria Girls world has a purple planet closer into the sun like Eve in Kerbal Space Program. You see it at the end of the last full scene of Friendship Games, shining just as the sun is setting.

I wonder if that world's Twilight Star is known to some as "The Faithful Student of the Sun"? :twilightsmile:

[Off topic but I'd like the Kerbol System from KSP to be the closest star system to Equestria for a variety of reasons, all of them mischievously comedic.]

I leeeeerrrrrrved it :pinkiehappy:

Awwwww, this was very sweet! :twilightsmile: Plus, the added bonus in which they're already together is a great touch! :pinkiehappy:

Having Twilight never seeing a sunrise in the human world was certainly an angle I never thought of... But now that I do think about it, it works so well! I think Sunset would be the perfect guide to show her what a sunrise is like in this world. Then again, she's pretty much the perfect guide in many aspects of this world to Twilight. XD

Overall, this was cute, sweet, and the simplicity was very charming! I always enjoy some fluff. :raritywink:

I also have to say how nice it is to see a Princess Twilight/Sunset story! I mean, I completely understand the appeal that Sci-Twi/Sunset has. But I just never got into it. It's just not the same to me. Twilight and Sunset's bonding in Rainbow Rocks was one of the best things about the movie and what won me over on the pairing. :pinkiehappy: So it's just nice to see these two together! Love it!

I'm not really a SunLight shipper(FlashLIght FTW) or F/F shipper at that, but I've got to admit this was very cute.

Their physical affection was so warm. Just the right words were chosen. Like and fave.

Does Eqeustria not have slow sunrises and sunsets though? I remember multiple episodes where the sky is pink.


You are not. I too, am SunLight trash.

Yet, I am trash nontheless. However, I am not litter. FOR THIS STORY IS FLUFFIER THAN THAT OF THE FLUFFIEST FLUFFLEBUNS:

That was a nice one shot of SunLight. I'll admit that I haven't seen an actual sunrise but I know I will someday.

Soooooooooooooooo adorable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :raritystarry: I thought I was the only one shipping Sunset and Princess Twilight after the Friendship Games

That was beautiful. :twilightsmile:

Not my preferred Twilight to pair with Sunset, but still some beautiful fluff. Besides, this story wouldn't work with the other one; not unless they watched Celestia raise it in Equestria, and that brings up all kinds of baggage for Sunset. I'm glad I finally read this. Thank you for it.

Have an (old) review. Unashamed shipping and none the worse for that. Rather sweet if you're in the right mood.

Even the smallest gestures are enhanced so damn well with the right romance in there-- This ship makes me explode. Adorable lil short story 10/10
