I live on a farm of plotbunnies.

If there was one thing Twilight Sparkle had learned since ascending to alicornhood and becoming a princess, it was that ponies talked. Then, quite suddenly, they were talking about her.

And then they were talking about her love life since she was a single princess, unmarried and approachable.

She was still getting used to that part.

She was especially getting used to talking about it with Sunset.

Short? Not so much. The sweetness, though? Probably going to need to schedule a dentist appointment after that one.

I'm sending you the bill, you wonderful person, you.

That aside, lovely piece for two of the loveliest characters in the canon. Good work, Radiant! :twilightsmile:

Extremely cute and heartwarming.

“… magical lesbian spawn.”

The fact that they'll end up generating one of those sooner or later makes it that much more hilarious :rainbowlaugh:

Magical Lesbian Spawn is the name of my indie band.

“Oh, I have some stories for you about Applejack and her family that will convince you otherwise, believe me. Earth ponies can hold grudges like you would not believe, from what she’s told me.”

I love getting oblique references like this.

This was incredibly sappy, and I mean that in the best way possible. :pinkiesmile:

To be honest, this story rambled on for far too long. Granted, it wasn’t a bad story, but frankly I think you could have said what you wanted to say in 10 pages.

This was certainly sweet, but it definitely could've used some more preliminary work. Aside from a case of LUS, the frequent repetition, meandering stretches of telly narration, and frequent repetition make the whole story feel flabby and unfocused, like you were writing stream-of-consciousness and never cleaned it up afterwards. There's certainly some adorable Sunlight in here, but you could've gotten the same effect after dropping a kiloword or two.

Dawwwwwwwwww. Also, yes, love is Sunlight.

Of Sunset and Twilight? I believe her name is Starlight. :sunsetsmirk:

That was such a sweet story.

... and that was when I kissed heeeeerrrrr
and then she made my lips huuuuuuurrt

Is the title inspired by the song?

Apologies for the late replies, everyone! I literally got this up last night and went to bed pretty soon after, and I only just got home.

Thank you!

Thank you very much! I enjoyed that joke probably a little bit more than I should have.

Thank you! Sap is what I do, and I do enjoy sappy Sunlight. :ajsmug:

Fair comments both. I admit I was aware after a point that this story probably ended up longer than it needed to be; I did run it by some other pre-readers before I put it up, but no one could agree on where the trimming needed to happen and honestly, past a point I wanted to end it and get it up so I may not have been as strict about my clean up as I should have been. Something to keep in mind for the future, no doubt. Thank you both for the critique!

Sunlight is love, Sunlight is life. Especially Princess Sunlight. :raritywink:

8917351

Thanks!

... I knew that was going to happen eventually and the song still ended up getting stuck in my head. :twilightoops:

8917842

I couldn't think of a better title and I've always liked the song, so yes and no, I guess.

8917223
I know what you did there!

What other shippings you like?

8917793
I could hear the chit-chaaaaat.
Take me to your love shaaaaack! :rainbowlaugh:

Ooooh, Sunlight that isn't Sunset/Sci-Twi, how rare and delightful. Always loved this ship and kind of lament it's been replaced with the Sunset/Sci-Twi one almost completely. This was certainly a welcome treat for the day.

Yay, its always a joy to read a new Princess Sunlight fic (until the new EQG tags were added it was hard to even find them sometimes, considering Sunset's unique circumstances). It did go on a bit long, to be honest (maybe if the first two venting sessions were merged together?) but I just love seeing Twilight and Sunset being sappy together. They balance each other out so well (Twilight's relative naivete and Sunset's more experienced self, not to mention the long distance relationship between pony and kind of former pony).

Started as a Whisper, ended up as a Shouting Match. That's what my mind immediately thought of when I saw the title

I'm also a big fan of FlutterDash, RariJack, and RariShimmer. I poly ship Sci-Twi something fierce with EQG Applejack and Fluttershy. Those are my main big ones.

Thank you! I can certainly see the appeal of Sci-Twi/Sunset, but Princess Sunlight will always be my preference for this variation of the ship. I just really enjoy the equal grounds and interactions the two of them share, and I find it more appealing than the Sci-Twi/Sunset dynamic.

Thank you very much for the comment!

I mean... you wouldn't be wrong.

It's so nice to see original SunLight pop up. Loved this! I like how they play off each other. It just works. I featured this on episode 222 of my podcast, Pony 411.

Thank you very much! I'll have to give it a listen.

Finally, some good ass Sunlight. Less of that Sciset, and NONE of that Flashlight.

I am pleased.
