Gear Works

Formerly know as Trader_Jack. Just an MLP fan from Middle TN with stories in my head.


Now that she's graduated from high school, Sunset Shimmer decides to attend college at one of the biggest place ever: Equestria University. And while her friends are joining her, she's reunited with some old faces: The Shadowbolts and the Dazzlings. But wherever they go, there's always a new magical problem that they have to face. But these girls aren't the only ones with magic on campus.

This is a revised version of The College Years that I tried to do back then.

Chapters (9)

I'm really glad to see you re-starting this one.

Dr. Discord Draconequus

Counselor Chrysalis Changeling

Please... I can't... too many alliterations... make it stahp.

That's the only thing that is bugging me. Great chapter otherwise.
Stay fresh

7754327 Hey. I read a series of Sour Sweet stories that includes Chrysalis as a counselor in some of the stories that include Fluttershy.

“It’s a P.K.E. meter. It’s short for Psychokinetic Energy. If it still works, we might be able to pick up any traces of Equestrian magic.”

Will it even work when the one using it has strong Equetrian magic inside her body? After she would turn it on it would be on maximum and pointing in Twilight's direction.

7796001 By the time they go to college, she would have better control of her powers with the pendants they wear. That it just a start.


Definitely better than the previous version.

“I told her about Hearth’s Warming that you have in your world and how it’s similar to Christmas,”

I doubt they would have christmass. They have completly different history.

Also Sour Sweet doesn't have bipolar disorder, because both parts she is saying in the movie are negative. The first part always sounds like irony. She was simply being negative.

7910595 We're not sure about the holidays in the human world, but we can assume that they are just like ours, and they would have some differences from the pony world. I remember reading the holiday comic where Sunset tells Applejack that she wasn't sure if her holidays are like the human world, but that they do get together. This could be because that both worlds have different stories that created the holiday.

And this is what I learned from the MLP Wiki for Sour Sweet.

Sour Sweet has a bipolar personality where she alternates between being sarcastic and rude (sour) and obnoxiously nice (sweet).

I'm guessing that it's a rare form of bipolar condition, and the closest that doctors could come would be schizophrenia. I was reading some of Nico-Stone Rupan's Sour Sweet series and thought about that, but also decided to think of it as a rare condition. I plan to have a good back story about how she's been acting in the past and the pills that she has to take to control her condition. Maybe when she and Centaur have a one-on-one talk about it.

Besides, everyone has their own ideas on the world and the characters' backstory in their own stories.

At first, I thought the loud music was coming from Vinyl Scratch. Oh well.

8107764 You forgot about the headphones that Lemon Zest wears. The music is loud that others can't stand it.

8107886 Maybe, but I believe Vinyl has been associated with loud music longer than Lemon.

Moon Dancer? Was she in Equestria Girls at all? And it looks like Cinch will have to find a new line of work.

8210116 Nope. But several writers have been adding her to their own EqG fanfics.

And somehow, the new three shorts prove that Cinch was now replaced by Cadence.

I am really liking this story so far.:raritywink:

That's because I deleted that story. Forgot to update this one.

“Good. Well then, what do you want to eat? We have hamburgers, hot dogs, boneless chicken, pizza. We also have fries, green beans, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese. And if you want a salad, you can fix it yourself over there.” Sonata pointed to the serving area with all the leafy greens behind them.

What you did there. I see it. :ajsmug:

Didn't even think about that when I wrote the chapter.

Everyone face-palmed and let out groins at Pinkie’s remark.

Um. I see this is a party uni...

Ooooo river!! Hope to c more reference's !

So much going on def gona have to reread

Nah, she’s smart enough that she’s probably tuned it to ignore the amulets.

I'm curious to see where this is going.

Is the Zodiac Knights thing from an anime? If so, which one?

Knights of the Zodiac was the first to come in mind.
