Average brony obsessing over the main cast with an unhealthy desire to see them in a dark fantasy setting.

It's tough to be young when growing up is all you're after.

You'll always want to reach for the sky, for that great big light above your head,

But as you are now, you just can't do it yet.

So you bide your time as the world opens up around you,

Watching and waiting, for that Star Overhead.


Growing up is hard.

However, thirteen-year-old filly Twilight Sparkle doesn’t quite understand that yet. Her life is a dull treadmill she can’t seem to get off of, as everything around her is shrouded by fog. Even when she looks up, the blue skies in Underhoof are always the same. Though, that all changes when she makes a simple wish upon a star at her best friend’s request. Life being hard is beaten into her head (quite literally) by a new force that changes everything in an electric and explosive fashion.

Star Overhead is a modern music video set to the soundtrack of life and sung by a filly who doesn’t understand the words. Things are unclear, the world won’t explain itself to you, and nopony understands anything.

The blue skies in Underhoof are always the same.

This story is heavily inspired by Fooly Cooly. For the best experience, please listen to the songs at the beginning of each chapter in the author's notes.

First chapter: The description has nothing to do with the story so I really don't know what to expect.

It's an alternate universe, motor and menstrual cycles, it doesn't seem to have a point or plot yet. Tech that seems to fall into weird crossover tech.
Totally different characterization and rolls...

What kind of story is this, what should I expect?
Is this even a cutie mark discovery story?

This story is about growing up, strained familial circumstances, and wishes for things we don't think we can have. The description is of the story as a whole, and is intentionally vague.

It isn't a crossover, but I take heavy inspiration from Fooly Cooly, as this was my attempt at doing FLCL my way, with ponies of course.

It is set in a modern, first world Equestria where things happend differently, and nothing and is explained to you directly. However, if you read between the lines, you might be able to figure it out as early as chapter 3. If nothing else, the fog will begin to clear starting at chapter 4.

Cool.
At least I have a base now.
I was completed lost and couldn't get immersed with the random, but having an idea, even if it is FLCL, gives me something about their world to understand.

I didn't get the modern Equestria part because there wasn't any indication, I figured it we canon Equestria with random tech tossed in.
Now I know they're post tech revolution and won't feel like a caveman tossed into star wars.
Lol

:ajsmug: Don't worry about it. The story description does say "modern music video," which I think is pretty apt for this, but it is only one line, and again, intentionally vague. A big part of this is that I wanted to make sure you could get everything you needed from as vague information as I could give (up until a point anyways,).

My goal in writing this was to explain as little as possible and still end up with something cool, but I've been wondering if I was too vague since nobody ever said anything as it was being written.

No sh*t, putting the idea is FLCL has made the whole story relatable and I'm into it now.

Cool. Let me know what you think as you go through it.
