Reading is my hobby, writing is my pastime.


Sunset Shimmer, personal student of Princess Celestia, had a falling out with said teacher. Escaping through the mirror, she found herself in a world ruled by war, where dragons rule the sky, and demons lurk in the dark beyond.

Intent on returning home, yet prideful enough to not want to have nothing to show for it, join Sunset as she climbs the ranks of the Kirin Tor and sets out to be the most accomplished magus of her generation.

Updates will be monthly as of 13 January 2020 (Tentatively)

Any story going for the potential of Sunset as prideful, bitter and highly competent student of magic would always be appreciated by me...
I also consider the crossover rather ironic, considering that imao it's the most interesting point for both Warcraft timeline and Sunset's story, as far as writing an interesting story is considered..


Really digging this story so far, excited to see more.

I really like this so far! I hope you'll continue this story, I'm really curious how Sunset's involvement will change the course of Azeroth's history! :twilightsmile:

Will sumset join the order what class she Will take please let it battle mage
Also more please.

Kel'Thuzad? Well, that's a fine, upstanding example for an apprentice to aspire to.

On the other hand, he fits Sunset's goals of ambitious power gain with nary a worry about the morality.

Another great chapter, really enjoy how you're handling Sunset so far.

Ok now sunset join order so what Going happen next?.
Also more please.

I really enjoyed how you wrote him but I'll admit that I'm not really an expert when it comes to these characters.

Oh men sunset become apretience hoppully she not screw up.

I feel like not knowing the source material here is really a nice boost. I'm enjoying this a lot. Like, a lot a lot. Keep up the great work.

Well, I actually am a bit of the fan of the Warcraft novels and short stories, and I also played most of their games, so the source material is actually mostly scattered around and me taking liberties in some area. Glad to hear that you are enjoying it though.

Good to hear that you like this Kel'Thuzad. If people like it then I am probably on the right track, thanks!

Well, she may or may not... It's only the start of the first arc, after all.

I am enjoying this so far, but your switching between past and present tense is kind of grating.

You know, I once heard a theory that Kel'Thuzad was actually responsible for a good portion of Jaina's magical tutelage, given their mutual propensity for ice magic. 'tis good to see that Antonidas has finally found someone who appreciates a good fireball.

And what do you know, speak of the archmage and he appears. I look forward to seeing the ripples that come about from the intersection of Sunset Shimmer and Kel’Thuzad.

Yes Sunset, get the basics in order before exploring emotive casting.

“Oh.” Helcular blinked, before smiling. “Well, it’s a four day ride. You will have plenty of time to learn.”

Oh dear, she's not going to be happy by the end of that.

Next chapter sounds like it is going to get interesting.

Archmage Kel’Thuzad alone to mutter absently to himself, something about ‘rats and raising them’.

And it begins...

So what her magic right is destruction or illusion?
Also more please.

I am new to Warcraft Lore so i do believe is second or third great war? Am i wrong.

Third war hasn't happened yet in this story.

Why can’t anyone ever use ogres that don’t care or are at least the neutral types

HA! I knew Helcular was an acolyte! Question is if they're gonna bring Sunset down the same dark path though...

I have not read a story on this site in a ver long time. Nothing really caught my interest, but this. This is the first thing I’ve been this excited to read in probably two or three years. I anxiously await what comes next!

Well, that's mostly because this time, the fic takes place after the Second War, so not really a lot of options to use neutral ogres, unless I somehow take it to Kalimdor, where most of those are.

It will be fun wouldn't it?

Wow, So glad to have you then! I hope I would not disappoint you or any of my other readers!

Hmmm what about young lunk that pacifist ogre

That's in Blackrock lands, still abit aways for Sunset.

Okay you got me on that logic I just like the ogres

Eh, it's all good. The fic is still young tho, so you might see more of them. Though sadly not for the next few chapters, those are already written and I'm just proofreading them myself when I'm free. So sadly, I don't think you can see as much ogres after this arc for the foreseeable future. But no worries, its Warcraft, I would be remissed if I did not use the ogres in the future along with a few other races.

Oh yes it will XD I'm almost getting giddy just imagining the potential story-lines XD

Though one thing I'm almost praying that you're gonna do is to have the Prophet either KNOW or at least hint at Sunset being the ''Lost daughter of the sun'' I've always wanted to see the kind of reaction something like that would get from the people around Sunset and also herself in these kinds of alternate mirror worlds XD

And yes I know it's not technically correct =P But it would be hilarious XD

Tuskarr, Vrykul, centaur, Furbolg, and Mighty morphin gnomes

It randomly occurs to me that Azerothian humans are quite physically distinct from the average pack of Terran humans.


That's not creative license, they really are that heavily built, for reasons of ancient lore that are too complex to go into. This contrasts quite amusingly with the world that Sunset was "supposed" to end up in.


So if Sunset ever ends up in that other universe after spending so much time here, she'll think every dude she meets but Bulk Biceps is alarmingly waifish. Just a silly thought.

Alright, let's see here. Very interesting so far, very intrigued to see where this takes our wayward ray of sunshine. Also my first contact with anything related to the Warcraft universe so I can confirm that it does a decent enough job explaining what's going on even if you don't know what's what.

That being said, there is one thing that needs to be addressed.

This story needs an editor. Sure there's some awkward phrasing here and there, but the thing that throws me off the most is that this story is clearly supposed to be written in past tense, but has a word slip into present tense or something else that doesn't belong there almost every other sentence, sometimes more.

You left us not one, but two cliffhangers. In a single chapter. You, sir, have my undying respect and best-natured hatred!

Buahahahahaha I was thinking the same thing:rainbowlaugh:

Haha, That's actually a new to me. Perhaps I will consider it if I ever want her to take a small trip there :derpyderp2:

Ah, I have been trying to minimize the amount of present tense that I involuntarily typed out. I guess, I ain't too successful then. Still, Thanks for the review and I will try to get that bad habit under control in the future chapters!

I strive to please :twilightsmile:. Still, I hope I can live up to it in the next chapter. Still, it probably would not be too flashy, considering that Sunset's still an apprentice.

Sunset did well to call up that elemental under such trying circumstances, and her master's goading will push her on to still greater heights. 'tis a pity that Kel'Thuzad is proving such an apt teacher for Sunset, he barely cares about her personal wellbeing and still manages to read her better than Celestia did.

I hope Sunset will stay cautious and cuts Kel out of her life in the future when she notices which kind of path he has chosen. Would love it if Sunset and Jaina can actually develop a sister-like relationship, though the more the war-ridden Azeroth is feeding her ego and desire for power and opportunities, the more I worry about her own future.

Sometimes, the harder to a Sunset x-over is the beginning, but is always a pleasure to work with the pre-rainbofied Sunset, so much sarcasm and anger; on the story, I like how it began, nice way to not rush into the narration, is something that can actually help to most stories around. I'll see what the rest of the story is like, but so far it is pretty good.

Deep inside Sunset wouldn’t mind having people who actually care about her. I hope Jaina and Kathrine give her some kind of home in Azeroth.

Kel'Thuzad is still one of the six,. This is before the First War?

Geez, looks like someone got level boosted.

“I heard that she and Master Antonidas were the first to find me…” Sunset ignored the look that Jaina gave her. “They said that they found me in a village one year ago, imprisoned by a rogue wizard.”

Uh... correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this a THREE year timeskip? so isn't this a typo?

Yes it is. thanks for the notice. Must have missed it.

Well, as fun as grinding would be, most of the fun stuff tends to happen around this time. XD

This is after the Second and before the Third War. But Kel'Thuzad hasn't defected, yet.

Well, that will be fun, but the question is whether Sunset would want to accept it... Though not for the time being, of course, the following chapter is to help introduce a few rather significant personage!

Well, technically that one hails from human branch which is significally larger than average human in Alliance. Or gone South Kingdom, those were smaller, if judge by original Karazhan :rainbowwild:


Well technically there are no "real" humans on Azeroth at all.

Only the long-removed descendants of the titan-forged Iron Vrykul, afflicted untold ages ago with Yogg-Saron's curse of Flesh.

Not gonna lie, I think it would be pretty neat if Sunset follows Kel’Thuzad on his path that eventually leads to the Lich King. Man, Arthas, Kel’Thuzad and Sunset leading the Scourge. Now that would be awesome.
