This story is a sequel to A Shattered Rainbow Rock


Weeks after the Battle Of The Bands, the Rainbooms are struggling to change themselves for the better, needless to say not everyone is open to it. But with the Friendship Games on their way, they hope to use that as a way to set themselves on the path to redemption. But when mysterious problems start to rise, everyone's looking at them to blame. Is it truly their fault, or is there something bigger happening behind the curtains?

Yep, the Rainbooms are going to be put through Hell. Not that it's well-earned mind you, but they're going to be in for a rough ride. Not bad of a start, and I have to say I'm curious as to where Twilight's going to diverge in this story.

And so it begins. The Rainbooms are really gonna be facing up to the consequences of their actions, all while our new antagonist comes to town.

I look forward to seeing where this story shall go in the days ahead...

An excellent start to the sequel of A Shattered Rainbow Rock! I'm definitely following this! :pinkiehappy:

The Rainbooms meet the Mad Twience.
Or Rainbow Dash Meets Sci-Twi.
Oh and don't put the Rainbooms in more hell than they are in because me and HUMMER know what is like.

If I remember correctly; Sunset Shimmer in this universe is rotten. Than that means that Cinch is a emotional Principal with a stone face expression?

Yeah, I'll admit this chapter is a bit rough, but I wouldn't worry too much on that, or how long it took you to get it out, given I usually take much longer to update my stories.

" I know, but right now, it's the only time we can come in. This will be enough to get the rest of the cash we need to help pay for the damages to CHS, and to get Rainbooms sisters back into good health again. Tell you what, maybe take some videos for us, can you? I'd like to see how the games are while we're away. "

and to get *the* Rainbooms' sisters

Typo aside, this was fun reading. Especially that ending. XD

It's a shame that the Dazzlings won't make it to the games, but at least the ending was funny! :rainbowlaugh:

Good job.
Why not put Nyx with Sci-Twi and make Nyx an assistant and kind daughter to Sci-Twi.

Ooh boy. Yeah, life is definitely hell right now for the Rainbooms. You might say that they are definitely due some comeuppance but still - oof…

Glad to see a look into some happier content in the other half of this chapter. As weird as it feels to say that about Crystal Prep XD Still, glad to see that it is a really awesome place here. Loved the Shadowbolts' introductions here, they were really fun and added a lot of character to them!

Huh, so that's Crystal Prep huh? Interesting. And Dash... Definitely a lack of communication in that house, then again I'm not sure how I'd be able to tell my parents I was an absolute bitch to six girls for years. Would like to see more of her home life for sure, see how this develops.

I feel sorry for the Rainbooms and the students of CHS are falling to their level.

Even though Rainbow Dash was a villain from A Shattered Rainbow Rock, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her. :fluttershysad:

On a lighter note, it was a nice introduction to this universe version of the Shadow Bolts! :twilightsmile:

You and me both. :ajsleepy: Rainbow and her fellows may have been awful, but at the same time, seeing people being awful to them just leaves an ugly taste in my mouth, you know? It just becomes a vicious cycle - people hurting people.

One of the ways that you know this really is an AU is when Crystal Prep is definitively an awesome high school to be at. :rainbowderp:

And also, yeah, I'd like to see some more stuff done with the Rainbooms and their home lives. Dash in particular is one subject that interests me, because we know from canon that her parents practically worship her. Depressingly, if that carries over to this universe, it'd explain a LOT about why there was so little done to discipline Dash.

9407764
Now that you mention it... That would explain so much.

9407728
Constants and variables really, eh? One universe, it was Sunset. Another, it's the Rainbooms.

That ending... And Lyra VS Bon-Bon. This is what started up for me when that happened.

Hilarious chap.

This was good silly fun. Nothing wrong at all with that. XD

And please tell me that the snake's name was an Indiana Jones reference.

This reminds me of the Friendship Games shorts with Lyra and Bon Bon, but with ninjas and chefs!

Very silly chapter! :rainbowlaugh:

This is why I love the Principals of this school. They actually sit up and do something when they need to, and they'te fairly friendly and understanding towards all their students, even said students weren't exactly the nicest of people.

CSC

Nice chapter.

Amen to that. It's really refreshing to see a principal in a high school story who's doing something to both discipline troublemakers AND also suggest a better, more constructive path to decency for them too.

...Also, can we talk a moment to regard the humor of the fact that in this AU, Celestia seems to be considered the "scary, strict" sister? That just amuses me considering how many takes have been done of canon Celestia's sense of humor and all.

Exactly. I thankfully don't have much experience with principals in real life so I can't tell if this story is wholly realistic in that regard but this is so refreshing.

...Also, can we talk a moment to regard the humor of the fact that in this AU, Celestia seems to be considered the "scary, strict" sister? That just amuses me considering how many takes have been done of canon Celestia's sense of humor and all.

Takes a minute to digest this, before bursting out laughing Yeah, considering canon Celestia is a bit of a prankster -Inviting Discord to the Grand Galloping Gala anyone- and that's been mutated into her being a troll and such, her being seen as the scary sister which usually goes to Luna in Equestria Girls stories is just a riot.

This was good reading. I really enjoy this take on Celestia here. And also, the fact that she got Rainbow to accept the idea of joining the Games by playing on her competitive ego. XD Good to know, that even in an alternate-universe, some things are still constant. Rainbow Dash can never turn down a challenge.

And also, it's nice to see something cute with this Pinkie Pie at the end. Yeah, the scene with her and Gummy is kinda bittersweet, but still, nice to see more and more of these looks into the home lives of the different Rainbooms. See more and more of them besides their earlier bully selves.

Another good chapter!

Even in the alternate universe, Rainbow ends up accepting the challenge without thinking. :facehoof:

Even though she used to be a bully, I feel so sorry for Pinkie. :fluttershysad:

The school day is over, the majority of the student body was clearing out their stuff, getting ready to get out and go home. All except for five particular students, of course. Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie – all of them weary, tired after another long day – reluctantly reported to detention. This was something that has varied over the weeks since sentencing. For the first few weeks it had been something simple like community service – namely, assisting in the repairs to damages done at school. Other days included picking up trash by the freeway, or planting new bushes and trees at the park; all done under police supervision.

Though the police supervision stung them hard. It sent the message, as much as everything else, to the Rainbooms, that they’re being treated like criminals. Like scum. The lowest of the lows.

The cops, CHS, and the students are all a**holes and the Rainbooms are in pain. Sorry but that's how I feel.

Nice chapter.

What happens if they quit community service?

Amethyst rolled herself around and raised her head up, looking back at Trixie and her father. A small cardboard box bounced off her head before she spoke. But all she did after was give them most stupid grin she ever had on her face.

"That... was... AWESOME!!!"

And then she throws up devil horns, like any metal head. But seriously great chapter.

As always, good work! :twilightsmile:

And that joke at the end. Nice XD

An Amethyst chapter is always a good chapter! :twilightsmile:

:rainbowlaugh:

Can't wait for mad Twience to meet the Rainbooms or Flash Sentry.

Some Rainbooms may not be suited to sports, I think is the lesson here. Mind you, what I would have found funny was this Rarity actually enjoying something like say... mud.

Bit of an obvious joke though I suppose.

Thanks for the credit, friend. I had fun coming up with the tryout scenes XD

And good work on the rest of this chapter too. I quite liked the material with Twilight and Cinch - though again, it's really just surreal to see a GOOD Abacus Cinch in an EG story! :derpyderp2:

Ri2

Hey, it's Coloratura!

Ri2

Cinch is...good?! This really is an AU!

Wow... never thought we'll get to see a good Cinch who cared only for fun and not reputation.

“Well, Twily, as an alumni, I thought it would be best to offer a unique perspective.”

Twilight blinked. “Perspective on what?”

“Why the Friendship Games, of course.”

The chair that was turned back against Twilight spun around, revealing a slightly older woman who looked like she was in her late 50s or early 60s. Her skin was blue as ice, her hair neatly curled with a dark shade of purple and indigo, and dressed in a buttoned up and sleeveless vest.

“You competed in the games did you—“ The woman stopped. She looked up, seeing the only source of light shine down on her. “Oh good heavens, I’m sorry, Shining could you please turn on the light switch, I keep forgetting to turn them all on.”

All of the lights flipped on, providing enough light for the wincing eyes.

Okay, that was funny! :rainbowlaugh:

And what exactly happened between Twilight and Cadence? :rainbowderp:

Anyway, excellent chapter! :twilightsmile:

Oh, Shining...

Also, Four? A suggestion? Maybe you should step away from this story a bit, I don't want you to suffer a burnout and to be quite frank you seem to be very close to getting one of those. Just step away from writing for a while, okay?

The wait was most definitely worth it. I got a kick out of the scene with Octavia and the others at the start... and as for that scene with Shining and Cadence... I feel sorry for those two. There's definitely something sad going on in their past, and whatever happened with Twilight.

Okay, now I'm really curious as to what happened between Cadence and Sci-Twi.

And it looks like Octavia has magnetic powers! Neat!

Is it bad that I want CHS but the Rainbooms to be in pain?
Good chapter.

Twilight was bullied?I want to know of what happened, and such. Seems she blames Cadence for it for some reason.

I dont see the games ending well for ole Sci Twi. I see her losing her patience (not that she really has any) with it, and just going nuts
