How can this story be the second part of a trilogy and Book One of a series at the same time?

I just wanted to call it a trilogy, but I suppose you could call this the beginning of the second arc in this saga.

So excited for next chapter! I also almost cried when Starlight was crying hehe

Everybody may swear, but everypony doesn't. =P Just teasing ya. I thought I'd have a little headcanon fun with the fact that none of the characters swear (even though it's obviously because it's a kids show.)

What about a side-series of Flurry Heart?

Fair point, but honestly it hasn't even been a thought in my mind. The two projects I just announced were kind of spur of the moment, but there is going to be another that I've had in mind since the beginning. =)

Ahhhhh yasss my favorite Fimfiction author writing about Anon-A-Miss ahhhhhh!!!!!!


Well, that is the whole point of the story. :raritywink:

I think the recapping events for everyone they meet is getting a little repetitive. You can easily write "X told Y everything they had been up to that day so far" and get the same point across.

Fair point. Will do, and thanks for the constructive criticism!

Goes the dynamite? =P

"I find your lack of faith disturbing." said Sunset.

Oh my gosh yessssss

"This place is huge! It's way bigger than the one in the mirror world." said Sunset.

I thought you said that she called it the human world?

Right. Nice catch there. ^_^;

Maybe Sunset Shimmer should be informed about Neighsay and what he tried to do to the School of Friendship.

You know that now that she's dropped that, the others are going to wonder where that's from, right?

Make it happen, 8902269 !

Well, that escalated quickly.

I started imagining "When it Falls" playing in the background of the nightmare. Seems suitable.

One mask had several animals etched on it. Another mask had a plague doctor's mask etched on it. The third mask Sunset saw had a nightcap etched on it. The fourth was a giant question mark. The fifth was a gravestone, and the last was a king's crown

You're referencing something here but i can't remember what... I know I've seen those particular symbols on masks somewhere in a history book or some sort of stage play, I just can't remember where.... All I know is Sunset's in trouble. BIG trouble.

If it's referencing something, it's completely unintentional. All I'm going to say is that I'm foreshadowing.

Sunset nodded and the two went their separate ways. She wandered the halls, taking in the sights of this new building. "Wow...I've never seen anything like it!" She walked the halls, soaking in all the details. Honesty Class: Professor Applejack? Sunset stifled a giggle. Generosity Class: Professor Rarity. "Okay...that's new." Kindness Class: Professor Fluttershy...okay, this is getting weird. Laughter Class: Professor Pinkie Pie. Now that I'd like to see. Loyalty Class...Professor...Rainbow...Dash! Sunset immediately descended into a fit of laughter.

"Oh, Celestia...that's priceless!" she said as she recovered from her laughter and wiped a tear from her face. "Oh, man...I can't wait to tell everyone about this back home. I should take a picture of their faces!" Sunset caught her breath and continued further down the hallway. "Head Mare...Twilight Sparkle." Sunset rolled her eyes. "Naturally." She neared the end of the hallway. "Starlight Glimmer...Guidance Counselor." A smile crossed her face. "Ooh, I should ask her about that when I see her." Wait, if they all have roles, what about Spike? that's another thing I'll have to ask Starlight or Twilight.

Yeah Professer Dash that will be the day.

"We could...I don't know...maybe talk about each other's past? All I know is that you ruled over a village."

Starlight gave Sunset a look.

Sunset stepped back. "But we don't have to if you don't want to! I just wanted to find common ground."

Starlight smiled. "No. It's fine. I'm curious to hear about your past...'exploits', too. Plus, it'll kill time on the way to Canterlot."

"Sweet." said Sunset. "Let's board the train first though. I have a feeling we're going to be asking each other tons of questions."

Starlight giggled. "Me too."

Yes let's discuss your old villain plans

"...and it was then that Princess Twilight Sparkle met the human Twilight Sparkle." Sunset looked at Starlight, who had been blushing. "Is something wrong?" she asked Starlight.

"I...didn't realize she told you about the whole time loop thing..." said Starlight, putting her hoof behind her head.

"Why would..." Sunset said as she suddenly put two and two together. Her eyes shot fully open and she gasped. "No!"

Starlight slowly nodded her head, ashamed.

"You were the one responsible for the time loop Princess Twilight mentioned? Oh, I have got to hear that!" said Sunset, her initial shock replaced by anticipation.

You are way too interested in that

Sunset Shimmer took a deep breath, and exhaled to calm herself. It worked...for all of about two seconds, as Sunset shouted "Holy fucking shit, you met Starswirl the Bearded?!?!?

Everypony on the train gave both Starlight and Sunset dirty looks.

Sunset blushed. "I'm sorry, I just had to get that out of my system." she said to Starlight and the passengers.

Starlight looked mortified for a moment.

Sunset's ears drooped. "I'm sorry. I got a little bit carried away there." she smiled sheepishly.

Starlight quirked an eyebrow. "A little?"

"Please, I'm embarrassed enough as it is." said Sunset. "I can't believe his initial attitude towards you." she said, in the hopes of changing the subject. "You think you know your legends of Equestria..."

Starlight sighed. "Yeah, he was kind of a tough nut to crack. But enough about that. A while later, all of Equestria was preparing for the Festival of Friendship..."

Starswirl is the father of Magic the same way Einstein is the father of Modern Physics

"What I'm about to tell you is exactly what happened the first time we saw her."

Starlight gave Twilight a nasty look.

Twilight smiled. "I promise. Cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye."

Starlight seemed reassured by this, so Twilight began. "I was practicing magic with Spike in the Golden Oaks Library that day. I had mastered many kinds of magic..."

Starlight is glaring at her for obvious reasons.

Sunset laughed. "That is the whole point of this journey."

"Besides," said Twilight. "When has friendship ever failed us?"

"Indeed." said Rarity. "I just hope you didn't tempt fate by saying that."

"I find your lack of faith disturbing." said Sunset.

Everyone shot a dirty look at her.

"Sorry. I didn't really mean it, I just felt like referencing a bit of my world's popular culture." she put her hoof to her head. "I hope I'm not getting homesick, I haven't been here that long!" she blushed.


But then we don't get the reactions

Bringing her journal through would disrupt the portal I think.

Sunset laughed. "Never tempt fate, Starlight. Never tempt fate."

Too late! :rainbowderp:

I'm surprised Discord didn't show up to tell his story.

Nope. The powder keg that is Twilight's patience.

Wait, Twilight never told Sunset why she called her in the first place!

She did, at the end of Sunset Shimmer's Sick Day.

Reread that chapter, now it makes more sense.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing." said Sunset.

Lady Shimmer! Release her!

"Uhh...what's a cupcake got to do with anything?" asked Applejack.

Sunset blushed. "Oh yeah, I forgot Pinkie gave this to me before I left..."

"You aren't going to eat it, are you?" asked Twilight. "It's passed through the mirror. Celestia knows what'll happen to you if you do."

"Good point." said Sunset. "I'd rather not take the risk." she put it on the ground and destroyed it. "Just in case. You can never be too careful sometimes."

It was at this moment Sunset knew: she fucked up.

"What in the name of Celestia happened while I was gone?!" said Sunset.

Golden Crossbow did, that's what.
