This story is a sequel to Lows And Highs


Sunset Shimmer is still recovering from her mental breakdown. While she is of course grateful to Rarity for helping her to reemerge from her shell, no illness can heal overnight. Also, Sunset has her limits. One of those is being awoken before sunrise. Rarity had promised not to, so why is she in Sunset's apartment at the forbidden time? Surely she has a good reason, right?

This story is part of Sunset's Recovery Arc.

Very well written I do hope Sunset will return to school.

This has the potential for a Sunset/Rarity romance ship. I look forward to more stories from you.

You've captured the untapped potential in Sunset's character as well as Rarity's generous nature very well. Can't wait to read more of your work. This is good stuff!

7708292 - As I said elsewhere, I'm sure she will, in time. :raritywink:

7708616 - Oh I'm very aware of the shipping potential. But (my) Sunset is in a very vulnerable position right now. Let's let the poor girl heal a bit more, okay?

7708830 - Well, they are my two favourite MLP characters. I should hope I'm able to write them by now. Thank you for the compliment. :twilightsmile:

Holy cheese! Congrats on getting featured!

A bit of a reversal from the foreshadowing, which implied Rarity would be there for Sunset at 4AM, not vice versa. But that plus shifting focus from introspection exposition (though you did do it well don't get me wrong) makes for better storytelling. The d'awww moment at the end was quite heartwarming.

"Become the Burrito." :rainbowlaugh:

maybe it was because Sunset appealed to Luna's innate desire to undermine the system.

A nice bit of characterization for the Night Princess' human counterpart.

Satisfied, Sunset turned off the phone and, in a fluid motion, ensconced herself in her bed, wrapping her comforter around herself, becoming the burrito, allowing the power of sleep to overtake her, hoping that her dreams would be pleasant this time.

Kinda want to see for shits and giggles.

…I just remembered that ‘Nothing’ is also Classical Equestrian slang for a mare’s sexual organs. And this tangent just got really weird. Thanks a lot for making me analyze Flankspeare, Princess Celestia.

This one line has made 90% of the canon show become a LOT dirtier.:trollestia:

a well-read ex-horse.

Cute :3

“Well,” Sunset said, “On the plus side, this will help me sleep...

It seems Sunset and both experience chrysalism

Think at the bright side, at least it isn’t 3:00 am

I feel like this part of the arc is one short story away from pretty strong. You're showing us quite a bit about Sunset's rise from rock bottom, but as I've said before, you only showed us rock bottom. You didn't show us much about how she got there. I feel like with one story in that timeframe, this would be a much stronger arc.

This just plain heartwarming.
