Canterlot High School is having a talent show, and the Rainbooms are eager to join in. However, things get complicated when the human world version of Sunset Shimmer suddenly makes an appearance. After much confusion and several mix-ups, she finally meets her counterpart and her friends. Unlike her counterpart, however, she's shy and reserved. The girls try to befriend her, but this Sunset doesn't seem to be too interested in friendship. She is, however, very interested in the rumors of magic surrounding Canterlot High, and seems to be hiding something magic related herself. And when magical mishaps begin to occur, the Equestria Girls begin to suspect that this new Sunset may be behind them. Is it possible that she's evil and power hungry the way her counterpart once was, or is there something else at work?

Okay, this is amazing. This is probably one of the best 'meeting human Sunset Shimmer' stories on this site! You even make the basic conversations interesting to read.

I can't wait to see what happens next, with Sunset and Flash too!


I'm glad you're enjoying it. Unfortunately, there won't be much of Flash. Not because I don't like the guy (I really don't get all the hate), but because it's really about human Sunset and the EQGs. Thanks for reading, and being my first reviewer.

I'm sorry, but I don't think I'll be able to continue this. You've got an interesting concept, and I wish I could go on, but your use of italics for alt versions of the characters is distracting - italics are normally used, from what I've seen, for emphasis, not differentiation. Every time I hit an italicized name, I'm popped out of the story trying to figure out why the name got emphasized before remembering, and that's rendering the story unreadable for me.

I wish you well, and hope that I'm in the minority on that issue and that your other readers aren't troubled by this.

I appreciate you giving it a chance. I was hoping to use the italicization to avoid confusion between characters, but I can see how it would backfire. Thank you all the same.

I am quite intrigued by this and look forward to more

This is good! Can't wait for more!

SunShim's answers are finally answered. I wonder if she will open up more? Also, just as curious as Sunset, I'm excited to find out what type of "magical encounter" SunShim has had in the past. I'm so intrigued!

I love your story! This was a good chapter. :twilightsmile:

Thank you. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Hm, Important choker huh? Can't wait for more! c:


I have a feeling this is going to end in tears... Great chapter though!

I wonder what sunshim aka sunset's human world counterpart has planned? Whatever she has planned it won't be good and I bet it involves around doing something to her counterpart or the geodes

Woah what an exciting chapter. I just love it when the girls solve magical crises. This one seemed really fascinating. Oh and SunShim... just what are you doing...? Hopefully Princess Twi can be of some assistance.


I was biting my lip so hard when SunShim was about to take Sunset's geode. Thankfully, nothing came about.

Love this chapter. As we got to see Sunset and her counterpart bond some more. Anxious to read what's next, however.


Serenityx I was thinking the same I also think she has something planned that involves her counterparts geode but we'll have to wait to see what happens and what she does

This was such a fun chapter. But....


XD, <3

Let us hope that since it is their own magic, it does not harm them, but is instead returned to them.

So did SunShim became a Draconequues?

Not exactly. Just a demon that resembles a cross between a dragon and (of course) a pony.

...Draconequus SunShim!! :pinkiecrazy: ...dragon Sunset!! :heart: the desolation of Sunset Shimmer!!!:pinkiecrazy:

That’s what I thought but the author said it’s not. .

I mean, I guess she could be. It hadn't been my intention to make her a draconequus, as corruption seems to turn the victims into demons. Maybe a demon draconequus if that's what you want to think of her as.

Can you hear me right now? I'm screaming.



The following school day... Rainbooms have to hold SunShim back from turning the Dazzlings into wall and floor art.

To take from Rainbow, awesome!

Nah, both Celestias would need to protect the ex-Sirens from all 16 of them.

Such a good chapter with some emotion and explanations. Human Sunset's parents having died in a fire and Sunset not wanting to relive it by not making friends when given the opportunity to. Sunset wanted the magic to feel stronger, which is a pretty reasonable motive. And man, what a twist when the choker was actually made from the Dazzlings pendants, and the trio themselves will face hard punishments from Celestia and Luna (and the foreshadowing of Find the Magic.) Also, since Sunset allowed Princess Twilight to teach her about friendship, that likely means she'll go live in Equestria, mirroring pony Sunset living in the human world. Can't wait to see what the next (and likely final) chapter brings us. :pinkiehappy::raritywink::twilightsmile:

Glad you liked it. I was originally going to have the choker be made entirely from Adagio's pendant since she was the only one seen picking up the pieces of hers before the Dazzlings ran away. When Find The Magic came out and showed that they still had their pendants, I thought I wouldn't be able to use that idea. But then when it showed that their pendants had pieces missing, I just tweaked my idea a bit to have the choker be made up of fragments from all three of them. So, phew, close call.

Glad you enjoyed the chapter. Thanks for the review.

Don't mention it! Can't wait to see what happens next chapter, like Human Sunset finally becoming friends with everyone at CHS along the pony Mane 6, an interaction with Flash Sentry and Princess Twilight (and maybe Sci-Twi too) and the Mane 7 finding out about the Dazzlings being punished.

Also, I just realized the picture of pony Human Sunset actually foreshadowed her move to Equestria!

Unknown readings... Space bending...


I think the starbursts are happening because the Mane 7 and their counterparts are in the same place, harming the balance like Celestia had warned in the first EG movie.

dimensional balance problems?
Sunshim going to Equestria because she doesn't want to force ponyset back home?

Pinkie Pie popped out from behind her, looking confused. "Wait, Flash? I thought his name was Brad."

Silver Quill is infamous

"I'm not in denial!" Twilight practically wailed.

Egyptian rivers sound nice this time of year. Don't you agree, Twilight?

LOL, should have had someone say something like that.

I'm going out on a limb here and saying the distortions are because there are two versions of EVERYONE IN THE MANE SEVEN and the world is having an existential crisis.

It's getting out of hand now there are two of them!

About how this chapter ended and went i was kinda exspecting a few things to happen and I'm glad they did and I hope the epilogue won't make me cry in happiness

I believe the epilogue will have human Sunset arriving in Equestria and adapting to living in it and being a pony. She will also start making friends with the other ponies like Lyra and BonBon.

According to Katrina Hadley on Twitter, showing the pendants was supposed to be metaphorical rather than literal:

They were destroyed. But we liked the symbolism of them being healed by the Dazzlings learning to see the magic in the simple things in life. It’s not literal. It’s more of a visual representation of their new attitude

What a great and close to canon story! Makes sense Human Sunset would travel through Equestria cause if this story was canon, it would explain why she hasn't appeared. I agree with a sequel showing human Sunset's adventures, but I'll respect your decision not to do one for the time being. If the writers actually wanted to make Human Sunset canon, they should make a story like this!

Also let her know that I'm hoping that her plans for your spring break cruise are coming together well. Hope no magical catastrophes ruin things for you guys since I know how hard she's working on the arrangements.

Like the Spring Breakdown forshadowing, but way to jinx it Twi! :facehoof: At least you'll reunite with your human world friends and a certain blue haired guitar player.

This sure was a great story and I'd rate this a solid 10 out of 10 it's really good

I loved the story!

I would have loved to see them use human Sunset too in this way. They could do something similar to what they did with Starlight, but since the show's over... Well, at least we still got EQG Holidays Unwrapped to look forward to. Not to mention the 2021 MLP movie. Then Gen 5.

Wait a second. The new MLP movie is coming in 2021?! I thought it was 2020! Please tell me that was a typo! :pinkiesad2:
