The first-ever SunLight Shipping Collaboration Story!


After Sunset Shimmer brings Sci-Twi’s strange magic-absorbing amulet back to Equestria, Princess Twilight Sparkle has a brilliant idea. If they combine the amulet and the magic of the portal, the two of them could hop between worlds at the push of a button!

Who better to test out this fantastic new technology than two of the greatest minds in all of Equestria?

They probably should have calibrated it first.


SunLight Sliders is the result of the Sunset Shimmer community's epic three-month collaboration project, where each author had three days to write a 500-1500 chapter in the ongoing saga of Sunset and Twilight Voyaging through the multiverse! Every author picks up where the last one left off... giving us one crazy journey in space and time!

Ah, here this is. I've been waiting for the full release so I can remember where I am in it- threads have no way of tracking one's progress. And then I read it all in one sitting anyway.

Thanks again for making this Princess Twi. Nothing against SciTwi, but she gets such a big share of the shipping attention on fimfic already it's not even funny.

Who else thought of Stardust Crusaders when they read the title?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

So excited to finally be able to read this without searching through comments/following links the whole way!

Hurray, it's finally up! Y'all are in for quite the ride. :pinkiehappy:

A pleasant not so little romp in sunlight. Kudos to Novel for organizing this and the company for making it real!

Okay, the two first chapters gave the term "shipping wars" a new meaning, a very crazy and badass meaning! I already love this story!

>>8071258 what, the haircut? :P

Give it a read to the end. You might still be surprised.

>>8071320 No, you really want to finish the fic. Who says future authors pay any attention to previous ones?

Expectations are constantly upturned in here.

Why do I get the feeling this is based on the show Sliders?

Yay, glad to see this story up in full now.  I was kind of following the story as it was posted but not sure I ever posted in that thread (something about my browser settings make it difficult to navigate threads)..  It was a good epic story, with plenty of adorable Sunlight and references to all the possibilities (good and bad) that are possible in a big multiverse.  And yet, its when they finally get home together that's the best part, yay.  Glad it worked out pretty well, I wasn't sure it was possible when I first heard about this project, but thank you to all the writers who contributed to this impressive achievement.

>>8071254 I did get a bit of flak for that particular choice. :rainbowlaugh:

Mostly from Tchernobog. :derpytongue2:

>>8071409 ...I have no idea. :trixieshiftright:

sounds pretty sweet cant wait to start reading

Before reading: You better have a better ending than 'Sliders' did.

Great start if you start your own chapter by finding a mistake (was it in the thread?)

I should inform you, Rebecca, that I played ‘Clover the Clever’ in the Canterlot Hearth’s Warming play.” Twilight announced proudly. “I also just happen to have an eidetic memory.”

"You're right. What could possibly go wrong?”

This should be together as both is said by Twilight

Though I wished we would stay longer in this world

And I'm sure this was actually in spoiler tags in my AN

>>8071554 Fixed and fixed. Don't worry. I've already corrected about a dozen mistakes in just my own stuff since putting this up.

>>8071532 Sliders never had an ending. :derpytongue2: Anyway, that show really ended when John Rhys-Davies left. :raritycry:

I promise that this is better than the ending of Sliders. You have my word on it. :pinkiehappy:

>>8071559

:rainbowlaugh:Only now noticed your editor's notes

But could you please:scootangel::duck::pinkiehappy: move it a bit lower, so it doesn't immediately break the joke, please?

Oh yeah, Oroboro made me pre-read some of his material for this collab.

And he didn't even cuddle me afterward.

One of my favorite pairings exploring alternate timelines?  I do wish I'd gotten involved with this, though knowing me, I'd have gotten my stories all over it.

In any case, an incredibly fun jaunt about the multiverse, even if a few sections were a bit disjointed. And the Accord is pretty foolish. In an infinite multiverse where anything that can happen does, if it were at all possible for travel between worldlines to destroy literally everything, nothing would exist. P(all events) approaches one without bound.

Anyway, great fun. Thank you all for it, and for presenting it in convenient story form.

Ok. I have to admit that was one of the best "multiverse-fics" I read until now. Much better organized than most things I saw (if that is even possible in that kind of fanfics. :derpytongue2:) and very amusing and nicely to read. :twilightsmile:

Especially in the "Displaced"-genre, people destroy many stories for me with using the Multiverse-Concept as an endless Deux ex machina in the most ridiculous ways that it's not even funny anymore.

Many times in the form of:

"The own MC can't handle problems in his world on his own and has to be saved (or gains completely illogical power or abilities from other god-like characters what have nothing to do anymore with the original discplaced character, like, I don't know, a jedi with his own abilities, the Sharingan of an Uchiha from Naruto and the powers of Aizen from Bleach or something like that what makes them so op without any reason that it just makes me mad) from a random tokken of a (surprisingly) op displaced who had to have this kind of powers for saving said MC."

In my personal opinion. If other people like something like that... so be it.

Or:

"They write themselves so hard into a crossover mishmash of countless Equestria's that they have no idea how to find back to their "own Equestria" in a logical way and can implement the sudden changes so that it can be convincing anymore."

Your story was very refreshing and I loved it from the first to the last chapter. Have my like. :pinkiesmile:

That was awesome and fun and funny and dark in just the right ways.

AAAAAAAWWWWW YEAH:rainbowdetermined2:

Be seeing you Number Six. :trollestia:

The first-ever SunLight Shipping Collaboration Story!

Is it? I can't help but think it's not the first I've seen but for the life of me I can't remember. Good on ya if it is.

>>8072016

I am not a number! I am a free integer!

They probably should have calibrated it first.

made me think of this.

Very awesome start and the Sunlight is bright and adorable!

How long have you been doing this? The Voyager thing?

Long enough to put down a most-of-several-petabytes long monograph on the subject of multidimensional travel in her spare time.  Someone else can do the math, but I'd say it's verging on Wowbangeresque.

Dis 'ere's right and proppa cute, it is.

LOL! I loved how you took on shipping wars in a new way; it was very exciting and romantic with how Sunset and Twilight were caught up in all that. And of course Fluttershy is the one with fanciful tales about them. XD

This feels like a Rick and Morty/MLP crossover, and I'm loving every minute of it.

>>8071307; >>8072096 Sorry, but I can't take credit for making it an actual shipping war! :twilightsmile: My original plan (and we all know how long those last in collaborations!) was simply a steampunk Equestria! NotSoWickedWitch gets all the credit for actually making it a full-blown war! "Chapter 1 (Extended)" was just to bridge the gap a little more between Chapter 1 and Chapter 2!

Still... it was pretty awesome, eh? :pinkiehappy:

>>8071282 Ayep! Enjoy! :duck:

>>8071988 The last good season of Sliders. It did have a pretty sweet opening credits bit! So much so that it helped inspire the original bit of cover art before SciSetDaily came in with her freaking epic magic touch!

>>8072080 Glad you're enjoying it!

>>8071582 That beast! :pinkiegasp:

>>8071606 Don't worry. I may or may not already have another planned. :pinkiehappy:

>>8072044 If it isn't, I want to know about it, because I wanna read it! :yay:

>>8072108 It's somewhat of an inspiration. Though with less comedic sociopathy. :rainbowkiss:

"This is Captain Stormbreak to all hands! Initiate Operation Sunlight! All cannons open fire!” a voice called out over the speaker system.

Hahahahaha!

Spitfire and Fluttershy have good taste, certainly better than the dread pink and blue shippers.

Makes sense, Fluttershy probably would prefer to vicariously live through other people's experiences. That way she doesn't have to have those experiences herself, that would be kind of scary.

Oh my goodness, it's a Toy Story world. That's a bit less creepy than I was initially thinking with the stuffed animal transformation. I was expecting something a little more "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream".

Boy can't believe I read all that 40k+ story in one go, but what can I say, it was amazing. A collab composed of most of my favourite authors, it couldn't be less than grandiose.

What I found funny is when I read how the Accord regulated the travelling of the multiverse, I come up almost as the same speech that Sunset and Twilight gave them. Don't know if I discern Albi's thought process or if we think alike.

Anyway instant fav, good work to all of you.

Very amusing with Fluttershy and what a twist with the next universe. Definitely gonna be tricky to get out of that one.

Great chapter and looking forward to seeing how things go in this world. I wonder how the toy laws of nature work.
