When stray magic gets mixed into a trick that Trixie is practicing, things end up becoming extremely explosive, with Sunset Shimmer at ground zero. Now it's up to Trixie and the girls to find Sunset Shimmer.

And Sunset Shimmer.

And Sunset Shimmer.

Can they find enough of their friend to get her back, or will Sunset be scattered forever?

(A blatant rip-off... homage too... loosely inspired by Crisis of Infinite Twilights written by defender2222)

I like it, it’s a good start. Can’t wait for more.


Dammit, Trixie!

And of COURSE the girls would all stare, Sunny. You so gorgeous.

After another second, Sunset Shimmer stepped out onto the stage. At the moment she was dressed in a red leotard, with a stylized red and yellow sun on her stomach, a pair of fishnet stockings a shade darker than her skin, and red heels. Her arms were crossed over her chest, covering them as she hunched over.

Ooh, very nice.

"By pointing out that friends help each other out," Trixie replied. "Plus, I did help you out not too long ago."

Silver tongue, got it.

Taking a deep breath, Sunset moved to the box and stepped inside. As she did, she was able to see herself from every angle. And she had to admit, she looked pretty good. As much as she didnotlike the outfit, she had to admit that Rarity knew how to accentuate the right parts, and cover up the ones she was not so fond of.

Rarity knows what she's doing.

The box exploded, chunks of wood and shards of glass flying in every direction. A ball of orange energy shot up into the air above the stage before breaking apart and shooting off to who knows where.

Oh shit.

"A'right you two," she cut in. "How 'bout we stow it 'fore we say something we regret, and get back to the magic show?"


An ear-piercing whistle brought an end to the conversation as it filled the air. Six of the girls brought their hands to their ears, trying to keep them from bleeding as they turned their attention to the source.

Yeah, those hurt.

Lying on the grass was an orange coated unicorn. If it were standing up, it would be around four feet in height, and the legs were thicker than a typical horse's. The unicorn's coat and mane were red and yellow mixed together, and on its flank was a picture of a red and yellow sun, almost like a stylized yin-yang symbol.


Before Sunset could answer, cellphones started ringing.

Oh boy.

Originally, I posted the idea of something likeCrisis of Infinite Twilighthappening to Sunset Shimmer in theBlame Defender2222group forum. Originally, it was to share the idea with others in case anyone wanted to try it. I wasn't confident in trying it, because my writing style is so different from Defenders as is my sense of humor. The idea stuck with me, however, and ideas kept coming. So after struggling with something else, I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

I miss that fic.

Again, this is some simply superb work on the start of your story. The exchanges, characterizations, humor, action and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places.

I particularly liked the Girls' reactions to Sunset's "assistant" outfit, as well as the reaction upon meeting the alternate Sunset.

Hopefully, this isn't one of the still-evil alternate Sunsets PRETENDING to be friendly to lull the girls into a sense of false confidence.

I will most definitely be looking forward to more of this.

Crisis of infinite twilights was fun. Have a upvote sir!

i demand an update ASAP

Holy moley. :-D This chapter took a while, but was WELL worth the wait. I absolutely LOVED the exchange and characterizations of the Dazzlings. Great appearance by Siren Sunset too. Anyway, the adventure build-up is quite well done and I will definitely be looking forward to more of this.

Nice chapter. Thanks for the update!

well at least it seems she only wants them to go home and not to gain power

granted they dont need any bargaining tool for that just to say sorry and ask

"Sure," Indigo huffed, crossing her arms. "If you want to use 'logic' and 'reason,' instead of wondering aimlessly until we either find a clue or run into the monster."

"You just want one of those musical chase sequences, don't you?"

"No!" Indigo snapped. A blush then started to form. "I mean, I wouldn't say no to one, but I doubt it will happen anyways..."

:rainbowderp::rainbowlaugh: Oh man you should have one happen, that be hilarious!!

VERY good job on the latest chapter. I LOVED the catch-up on the Shadowbolts. :-D Once more, the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up are done in an excellent manner. I especially liked the appearance of Crystal Prep Sunset .

I will definitely be looking forward to more (especially considering the Rainbooms and Shadowbolts comparing notes and Still-Unicorn Sunset meeting Crystal Prep Sunset) , but I will definitely understand if real world matters get in the way.

this is just getting weirder and weirder

Only way this could even weirder is if the human Sunset made an appearance and not know what was going on and getting caught up in all this too.

OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH!!:fluttercry: I think when everything is returned back to normal poor Celestia and her child are going to have a major cry saying good bye!

Excellent job on this latest chapter. The exchange, characterizations and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places. I just loved Celestia's (very understandable) confusion to seeing a child version of Sunset calling her "'Mom'". I can hardly wait to see how much MORE confused she will get when Fluttershy and Pinkie show up with a still-unicorn Sunset .

Here are some more possible "for later" chapters:

1.There could be a scene at the Canterlot Heights Police Academy that has Shining Armor (a cadet at the academy) getting taunted by a version of Sunset that seems to think he is her arch-enemy (i.e. this would be the Sunset from "the Shinyverse")

and 2. At some future chapter, Sci-Twi can encounter a MALE Sunset (your choice on the name) who is more than a little over-affectionate with her. Even though Sci-Twi KNOWS this is one of the alternate Sunsets (who has apparently mistaken her for his universe's version of her, who is apparently his girlfriend), she STILL behaves in a way that makes HIM more than a little confused.

But if you don't like either one of these ideas (which, I will admit, is VERY possible), I will completely understand and profusely apologize for wasting your time.

Still I will DEFINITELY be looking forward to more of this regardless.

well this is 10 kinds of awkward

VERY good work on this latest chapter. The exchanges, humor, characterizations and future chapter set-up are all quite well done in all the right places.

I particularly liked "Pony" Sunset's inverted backstory as well as Dazzlings trying to strike a deal to return to Equestria (wouldn't THEY be surprised to know the Pillars have ALSO recently returned? [:-D]) AND Sci-Twi's point concerning how her Equestrian counterpart has considerably more experience on dealing with magic.

Anyway, I'll most definitely be looking forward to more of this.

so what is the back story of siren sunset


...Did Aria just punch Sour so hard her MOM felt it?! Duuuude.

That was what I was going to say, geeze.

Though, I kinda want to know the story behind Bitter's thoughts about Twi the first now.

Bitter thinks that Velvet is trying to get Berry for herself, despite having a boyfriend already. Velvet has denied this and tried to explain to Bitter that's not the case, but she refuses to believe it.

Very little I can say other than splendid work on the latest chapter. Yeah, the exchanges, characterizations, humor and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places.

And yeah, as was already mentioned in one of the previous reviews, I DID think it was darkly humorous that Aria LITERALLY hit someone hard enough for her MOTHER to feel it. And, I liked the slight amount of backstory concerning the issues Sour's mom had with Twilight's mom when they were teenagers.

And I'm guessing Crystal Sunset comes from a universe where her pony counterpart has basically switched roles with Twilight. And I can see her asking in worry where Ray is (I'm guessing Ray and Spike have switched roles too) and about (to her) recent events concerning how there seemed to be another her over in Canterlot High.

At any rate, I will VERY certainly be looking forward to more of this.

oh is that what happened i was confused

"Oh, right," Zephyr said as he turned around. "Here, let me help you out of there."

She's a STAGE MAGICIAN! Misdirection, trickery, lies, it's all part of her shtick!

Hey there. VERY good work on this latest chapter. I LOVED the check-up with Rainbow back in Canterlot High. I'm guessing Stage Magician Sunset is basically the human counterpart of your version of the Shinyverse Sunset. And, yeah, the exchanges, characterizations, action and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places.

I particularly liked Rainbow being tempted to let Stage Magician Sunset go through with the trick, only to save Zephyr anyway and IMMEDIATELY regretting it. And, yeah, Zephyr is being a BIG idiot here.

At any rate, I'll definitely be looking forward to the next chapter (as well as more of the story in general)

wow im shocked that zeypher fell for the i have to use the bathroom trick

i figured all sunset would have to do is say "let me out" no need for a lie or anything

good chapter thoe

Extremely good job on this latest chapter. I loved the work you did on the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up in all the right places. I really liked Applejack's point about the main difference between the native Sunset and Adagio , Adagio's story of what happened to her during the days of the Salem Witch Trials , Child Sunset meeting her pony counterpart and how Principal Celestia took the explanation concerning what happened concerning the cause of the multiple Sunsets .

Yeah, I'm DEFINITELY going to be eagerly awaiting more of this.

Small correction: it's not Salem. The timeline for this story is that The French Revolution is what led the sirens to emigrating to "The Colonies," which happened after The Witch Trials. However, witch burnings did happen in England as well.

very good chapter i question how honest adagio was thoe as well she is a sociopath

still want to know siren sunsets story

Sorry, but it looks like it's not something I'm going to really go into. I suppose it's essentially the same as The Dazzlings, although with Sunset being alone instead of with a group, and being banished by Twilight instead of Starswirl.

Fair enough. Thanks very much for the correction.

Okay. Fair enough. That makes sense. So I'm guessing the Mane Six and the Pillars basically switched roles in Siren Sunset's universe (with Starswirl WITHOUT a beard being Celestia's personal student)?

Thanks for the update! I like this look into Principal Celestia’s life. I look for ward to see how Luna thinks of the multiple versions of sunset.

"How did my life reach the point where something so outrageous was actually plausible?"

When Rainbow Rocks happened?

Stupid Idiot!!!!

"Are you implying that I'm from another dimension?"


Hello there. Once again, VERY good job on this latest chapter. The exchange, characterizations and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places. I particularly liked Sci-Twi at least proving to the alternate Sunset that magic DOES exist (even if nothing else) and the reaction they BOTH had to the hug. I will admit that I would be thinking that "Crystal Prep Sunset" would probably be asking where her pet lizard Ray was (as I said in an earlier review, I'm guessing that Ray and Spike ALSO switched roles in the universe "Crystal Prep Sunset" came from).

And I'm wondering how "Crystal Prep Sunset" will react to meeting the other alternate Sunsets (especially Princess Sunset when you get to HER [particularly because Princess Sunset would most likely be from the universe where she and Twilight switched roles and might "recognize" Crystal Prep Sunset as, to her, the native Sunset from Twilight's adopted universe]).

But, at any rate, I'll very certainly be looking forward to more of this.

and all this time both girls are thinking "she is so cute i should kiss her"

And Harry Potter sunset now. Wonderful! I look forward to see how the others react to them.

My mistake. Speed reading the chapter while doing two other things.

Harry Dresden is the main character of a series of urban fantasy novels written by Jim Butcher. It follows the main character, who is openly a wizard for hire in a world where most people don't believe that magic is real. He occasionally helps the police as a consultant for the paranormal or strange, as well as fighting various supernatural threats ranging from evil spellcasters to fallen angels, with all sorts in between. There are currently fifteen novels, and two or three collections of short stories.

All I can say is excellent work on this latest chapter. The exchanges, action, characterizations and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places. I particularly liked Rainbow's chat with the Harry Dresden-inspired Sunset and the fight with the similar-but-apparently-evil Sunset .

Yeah, I am most certainly going to be looking forward to more of this.

ah interesting you should write a full story for that sunset

Poor Principal. Doesn't even get the perks of her alternate being an immortal demigod.

I will admit that, based on the title of this chapter, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a giantess Sunset. But it's also made of adorableness, so I can't seriously complain.

Twilight stared at... Sci-Set? No, that sounded too... shippy...

As if the last few lines of the chapter don't raise sails.

If there’s a Super Sentai Sunset Shinmer, there also gotta be a Kamen Rider Sunset Shimmer.
