Fangren


A 29-year old gay trans girl. Got back into the show thanks to a friend and bingewatching. I've got quite a few things planned...


T

Princess Celestia has finally decided to introduce her two prized pupils to each other, hoping that together they'll finally start to appreciate the beauty and magic of friendship. Sunset may be proud and brash, and Twilight might be obsessive and oblivious at times, but surely they'll get along fine, right?

They'll go above and beyond that in time, but the road they'll take to get there is a rocky one.

Another contest already? Why so many?

I don't really understand what you mean. :rainbowhuh: People are free to hold whatever contests they want whenever they want, and I don't really see the problem with that. It encourages people to create, and I for one enjoyed writing my story - and reading several of the other entries.

Only got time to read the first chapter tonight--but great start! Your take on Twilight and Sunset both being Celestia's students at the same time seems like it's gonna be awesome!

I'll come back and comment again after I read more!

Tis a nice fic about my OTP.

That was so sweet.

Well I hope you've found the time to read the rest of the story, and that it's lived up to your expectations. :twilightsmile:

:twilightsmile: Thanks for the compliments, I'm glad that both of you liked it.

"Get stuffed, Malfoy."

Can you do a sequel wher eSunset finally confronted Celestia over what she did to her and how she hurt her?
Make her realize what a failure of a teacher she is.

As cathartic as something like that may have been...I don't think Twilight is really the type to say something like that, especially at the age she was in the beginning.

:rainbowhuh: ...no? Like, if you're referring to how things went down in canon (or at least the comics), then it should be obvious that things did not go down remotely the same in this story. And even if they had, I don't agree that what Celestia did was some horrible thing, or that she was a failure as a teacher for it. And if you're referring to the events of this story...the only thing I can think of that Celestia did wrong was not reminding Twilight that Sunset exists? But the blame for that whole drama should always lie squarely on Twilight's shoulders, and again I don't think it makes her some horrible person or whatever. But I get the feeling that's not what you were referring to.

Refering to how Celestia made Sunset feel she was nothing in the end, how Twilight was seemly her prefect choice and all the work she did all the effort, she put inher dreams was for naught.
It's only the fact she loved Twilight did Sunset not go mad.

??? Like, I get what you're trying to say now and if I do write a sequel series I do intend on exploring Sunset's feelings of inadequacy and loneliness and such and her relationship with Celestia, but I can't help but feel like you've misinterpreted things? Like, I don't know, you seem to be acting like Celestia was malicious or something rather than just being too busy dealing with, y'know, having a sister suddenly back in her life after a thousand years to have a perfect read on Sunset's mental health for a month. Like, yeah, she's not perfect, but I'd hardly call her a failure.

And I really don't know where you got the idea that Sunset would have gone mad had it not been for her love for Twilight. At no point in the story was that the only thing that kept her going, or anything like that. At most she was on track to becoming a more bitter and reclusive version of her pre-Twilight self.

See things different but ok.

Well maybe she not a failure but she did hurt Sunset, and would make for some clorsure, also what she did sounds like the same thing she did to luna in a way.
Ingoring her sister and her problems till too late, while not on purpose she hurt Sunset badly, and it needs to eb address for closure and so she may not repeat that mistake.

Ok Sunset may not gone mad, but she was MAD, and hurt, could seen her leave like she did before thru the mirror or head to the badlands or elsewhere.
If was only thanks to her love for Twilight that kept her from doing so I bet some small hope she came back.

I think you should rewrite this, but make it much much longer.

Hrmm...well, I can at least agree that if I do follow-up on this series there will be something like closure regarding Celestia, though it might be in the form of a flashback since I think at least part of it would have happened between chapters 4 and 5. And while yes, Sunset could have believably left had Twilight not come back, it wasn't love or hope or whatever that kept her in Canterlot. At least, not in my vision. As far as I'm concerned, Sunset stuck around out of a mix of stubbornness and not knowing where she'd even want to go.

While I can certainly understand the appeal of seeing this story expanded...a full rewrite isn't something I can see myself doing. Especially since I have another fic-universe that wants my attention. More likely, the parts of the story that take place between these five chapters will get told as either separate side stories or flashback-type chapters during a sequel series.

I quite enjoyed this! Even if it doesn't give us a lot of detail, I like "snapshot" style fics like this. It also helps that it's SunLight with pony Twi. :v

I featured this on episode 196 of my podcast, Pony 411.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! :twilightsmile: And I'll definitely check out the podcast when I get the chance.

This was a very enjoyable and heartwarming read. I would love to see this timeline revisited, both in the spots between the time jumps here and continuing on from what happens next after the end.

Lugu oli suurepärane! Ma armastan tegelaste arengut ja seda, kuidas te stseenide vahel liikusite! Teie kirjeldus tegi mulle hea meelega ja ma loodan, et sa teed hästi! Veenduge, et sa ei pane kastme pesu!

Thanks! :twilightsmile: I do definitely think I'll be revisiting this timeline with a sequel series that will likely include flashback-sort-of chapters detailing some things that happened between the time jumps, as you put it. Though it'll be some time before I can get to it, as I have a not-inconsiderable amount of prep work to do first.

Also thank you! :twilightsmile: Even if you did leave your comment in Estonian. But it does appear that you liked the story, if google translate is anything to go by. Though the last line seems to be an idiom, since the literal translation doesn't make sense to me like the rest of it does.

Yes so much interest yes! Not only is sunlight one of my favorite ships but I love AUs that diverge at the start of it all like this. Please continue this universe. I very much enjoy the history between them you created and can say; Like you even with all my digging I haven't found much if any that sets their meeting in this way.
