Rainbow Dash's Cloudominium

Sunset gaped at Rainbow's dwelling. "Okay. I want a house like that."

Starlight giggled.

"Rainbow Dash!" Twilight called out.

Within seconds, Rainbow Dash flew out of her house. "Hey guys!" She said "What's..." she trailed off as she found Sunset Shimmer.

"Don't do anything rash, Rainbow. Let me explain what's going on." said Twilight.

After Twilight told Rainbow everything, Rainbow flew close to Sunset.

Sunset backed up slowly, uncertain.

Rainbow Dash smiled. "If Twilight says you've changed, that's all I need to hear. So you're meeting up with all of us for some kind of destiny thing, huh?"

Sunset nodded. "To be honest, I'm still kind of figuring it out myself." she said.

"It was a lot to take in." admitted Starlight.

"So, Rainbow Dash...what do you think of this?" Sunset said as she brought out her drawing and levitated it towards her.

Rainbow Dash took a look at it and teared up. "It's...awesome. Not just awesome...there needs to be a new kind of word for how it makes me feel..."

Sunset smiled as she returned the drawing to her saddlebags. "I'm glad you like it. I can make copies for each of you when I get back home."

"You know, something just occurred to me." said Twilight, a smile forming on her face. "I don't think Sunset has seen your Sonic Rainboom, Rainbow Dash."

Sunset blinked. "Sonic what now?" she asked.

Rainbow grinned widely. "Sonic Rainboom."

Sunset snickered.

"What's so funny?" asked Rainbow Dash.

Twilight smiled. "I didn't tell you the name of the rock band your mirror counterpart started, did I?"

Rainbow thought for a moment and shook her head.

"We're called the Rainbooms." said Sunset, with a hint of pride. "I'm just laughing at the coincidence."

"Awesome!" shouted Rainbow. "Now let me show you a Sonic Rainboom." She flew high into the sky, higher than anypony Sunset had ever seen fly before. Rainbow then sped down so fast, Sunset almost couldn't keep up. Then, an explosion of color and a rainbow shockwave appeared in the sky.

Sunset's jaw dropped as Rainbow landed right next to her, smiling confidently.

Everyone waited for Sunset to say something.

"Heh. She's speechless! That's my favorite reaction!" said Rainbow.

"Holy shit..." Sunset said in an almost inaudible whisper, slowly regaining her senses.

Starlight laughed. "I think you broke her."

Sunset shook her head rapidly. "Wow...I have no words for that." she smiled widely.

Spike leaned over to Twilight and whispered. "At least you didn't have to pull on her tail this time."

Twilight giggled.

"Wow." said Starlight. "That was even more impressive that when I saw you do it as a filly."

Rainbow laughed. "Yeah, I'm awesome." she said. "Hey, wanna check my place out?"

Sunset's eyes lit up. "Do I!"

Rainbow grinned. "Sweet." She opened the door and they all walked in.

Sunset's eyes went wide as she stared in awe. "Whoa..."

Everything around her seemed to be made from some sort of marble-like material. The floor beneath her hooves was patterned with a giant spiral. As Sunset looked around, she saw several windows, a statue that she guessed was probably a Wonderbolt, one column on each side of the entrance, a stairway leading upwards and shields on the wall.

"How can you afford a place like this?" asked Sunset, still gaping at the scenery.

"Well, I'm charge of the weather in Ponyville. I guess you could say it's like a government thing or something." said Rainbow Dash. "Also, I finally became a Wonderbolt a while back. It pays pretty good too."

"Wow." said Sunset. "I gotta admit, I'm jealous. This is like nothing I've ever seen before."

"I know, right?" said Rainbow Dash. "What's your place like?"

Sunset described her dwelling in almost excruciating detail, taking about an hour to give Rainbow Dash a decent visual idea.

"Hmm." said Rainbow. "Sounds pretty cool."

Sunset smiled. "It is. So...what do you for fun since there's no video games in this world?"

"Oh, there's video games in this world." said Starlight. "But they're nowhere near as popular as they are in yours. In fact, the only pony I've ever seen playing video games often is that one colt with a propeller hat..." she put her hoof to her chin. "But I'm sure there's others out there too."

"I'm not all that into video games, anyway." said Rainbow. "I prefer being active as often as possible. I get all anxious if I stay still for too long without anything keeping my attention."

"You wouldn't happen to read any Daring Do novels, would you?" said Sunset.

"Uh, yeah I would! I've read every single volume from cover to cover like a gazillion times!" Rainbow said excitedly.

Good to know that there's still some similarities between worlds. thought Sunset.

"What about you, Sunset? What do you do with your friends when you all hang out?" asked Rainbow.

"Well...we just talk, or play video games. Sometimes we'll rehearse songs for the band. We're pretty much as inseparable as you all are here." replied Sunset.

"Sounds pretty cool. I wonder if I'll ever get the chance to see your world." said Rainbow.

"Maybe someday, Rainbow Dash. Maybe someday." said Sunset.

"It's something you have to see to believe." said Starlight.

"Wait." said Rainbow Dash. "You've been there?!"

Starlight nodded. "If you ever go to the mirror world, just keep this in mind: the food there tastes great, but good luck getting used to it."

Sunset and Starlight shuddered from the memories.

Twilight snickered. "Oh come on, girls. It's not that bad."

"Easy for you to say." said Starlight. "You're an alicorn! You must have had something magical that kept you from puking your guts out."

Poor choice of words, Starlight. thought Sunset as she rolled her eyes.

"We should probably get going though. Destiny waits for nopony!" said Sunset.

"I hear that!" said Rainbow.

They all hugged and said their goodbyes, then Twilight teleported herself, Sunset, Starlight and Spike back onto the ground right next to Rainbow's mailbox.

"So. Anything from the book yet?" asked Twilight.

Sunset checked. "Nope. That's okay, because we still have three more stops." she smiled.

"Right." said Twilight. "Where to then? We have yet to go to Sweet Feathers Sanctuary, Sugarcube Corner, and Sweet Apple Acres."

"Hmm." Sunset said, thinking. "How about Sweet Feathers Sanctuary? I'm still not ready to be around food just yet."

Twilight laughed. "Sweet Feathers Sanctuary it is, then." she said, then teleported the group right in front of the entrance.
