This story is a sequel to Glimmer in the Snow


Post-S6. Starlight Glimmer returns to Our Town once again. Starlight intends to stay for a few weeks this time, continuing to atone for her megalomania as the former leader of Our Town.

However, Starlight knows there is one pony above all else she owes an apology to: the stallion she founded Our Town with, Double Diamond.

Light romance-shipping of Starlight Glimmer and Double Diamond (GlimmerDiamond). Reading the prequel is not wholly necessary to understand this story, but there are a few references that make more sense.

I thought about sculpting a pony of some sort, maybe the ponification of Justice, but I figured it’d be too boring.

"Hey, don't be rude..."

I'm probably one of like, five people who ship Double Diamond and Starlight Glimmer

six*. So when are you going to reveal that you've been a GlimmerSpike shipper all along?

I tried very much to stay within an Everyone rating, so at the most there are only a few ambiguous lines about Starlight and Diamond's relationship.

Nothing lewd about two ponies in love cuddling, I say.

Good fic yet again. To think you've come from "parodying Displaced to make wordplay jokes" to quality romance. My little Emperor has grown up so fast!

Ah yes...back after the episode, before we knew about Sunburst, I thought Starlight and DD were sweet on each other as well. They would have made a cute couple.

Fun fact: People actually use that Shakespeare quote wrong.

In context, "now is the winter of our discontent" is referring to winter as in the end of the year, right before spring arrives and it gets warmer and sunnier. As in: "We've had it rough but if we just push through this last bit, things will start to look up." So it actually means the opposite of what most assume.

Ironic, no?

I really liked your building the origins of Our Town in this story and the prequel. I especially liked the details with Starlight inventing the story of the Staff of Sameness. I would love to see an AU where everyone just paints over their cutie marks like Starlight did.

On a much darker note: Given what we know now of Starlight's capabilities, does anyone else wonder if she was covertly using mind control on the other inhabitants, and then altering memories/ using the rehabilitation shack as an excuse to explain changes in ponies behavior?

........I loved this. I'm not really a fan of shipping, but I do have a case by case preference, and in this universe, you have sold me on Double Diamond and Starlight.:raritystarry:

I was a good read, hope you do more of this.

So many implications about their relationship... it definitely comes across, and frankly, I find that far more palatable than most peoples idea of shipping.

I have mixed feelings on shipping in general, but you are so talented with written word that I look past that.

A most enjoyable read. You tease and deliver on your setup. Well done.

I'm a hardcore StarBurst shipper, but I'm interested enough in the premise to add this to my RL list

As a whole, it was alright, but I don't think I'll come back to this one again.
Part of that, I'll admit, IS my own personal shipping reasons, though.
