A pity EqG never got a proper ending.

Or they perform for a room in Baltimare, but no one's allowed to record it for legal reasons. It's a great show, but all those of us who were lucky enough to see it have are memories.

Or the tour goes on for years, unofficially but just as good, if not better.

The beat goes on. It just changes instruments.

Yeah. I mean, I still have more EqG stories to write - I'm working on a couple of them right now! - but I really wanted to make this little meta comment on the show itself going out without a fanfare.

Like, how great would it have been to have a scene with Sunset writing to the newly-ascended Princess Twilight congratulating her on her coronation, but turning down her offer to come back to Equestria, because she's finally found a place where she's happy? Alas, it was not to be, at least not in canon.

The beat goes on. It just changes instruments.

An excellent motto and a fine sentiment, and one I completely agree with. I just wanted to do... something.

I've just got going with my writing. I initially thought EqG would keep going to plug the gap between G4 and G5, but with the new chibi series filling that role, it has just faded away.

Right there with you. That's kind of why I felt like I had to write this.

9944002
And why I feel I must keep going. I've got new stories landing in the next few weeks.

9944007
Which is why it falls to the fans.

They said there was a deleted scene with Sunset, appearing and saying she became Principal of Canterlot School.

I'm guessing it was a 'many years later' scene.

I still don't know what's actually going on with Equestria Girls, but in the meantime, I'm surprised and kind of heartened to see this - which didn't get any kind of reviews or attention or anything much at all, really, at the time of release - gradually and quietly picking up views (if not votes) as the months tick by.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful review!

If it seemed rushed, that's because it was - I hadn't written anything in months (and kind of didn't intend to again, if I'm honest), but finding out that there apparently wasn't going to be an Equestria Girls finale of any kind just made me both furious and sad, and the idea just came to me there and then.

I arrived late in the fandom and caught up via binge watching the first four seasons and (at the time) two EQG movies in a few months, so I had more or less as much time with Sunset as a main character as with the Mane 6; it's hard to remember now, but there was no certainty we'd ever see her again after EQG 1, never mind that she'd become the emotional heart of the second movie (much like Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy). Her story is one of the most fascinating in all of MLP. She deserved better than this.

Part of me wishes I'd spent more time on it, because I do think the idea is the best part of it, and part of me is glad I just sat down and scribbled and got it out of my system.

What's most interesting about this story to me is that it's very quietly caught up with You Betcha! in terms of views - even though that one has all kinds of nice reviews and an Equestria Daily feature, whereas you're the first person ever to review this one. So, thank you again!

Really? That's shitty. Sunset doesn't seem like the teaching type to be a principal. I can see her being an animator, maybe going on to create a children's TV show telling the adventures of her close friends in another world. Because that's meta and I like it. Not being a Princapal, or even staying in Canterlot. Maybe she'd move somewhere else nearby, and end up marrying Twilight who discovers how two women can biologically have a baby and they have a daughter named Skyla. At least, that's what I think happens to them.

Short and sweet, made me cry a bit.

11/10.

One, yeah I somewhat agree with you in the fact that yes, Sunset wouldnt be a principal or the teaching type. However, no one keeps in mind that Sunset's special talent IS MAGIC, it wouldn't make sense for her to stay in the human world. She would at some point have to return to Equestria. I believe that the portal would remain open and she would visit time to time but I believe personally that she ascended after Friendship games but didnt go to magic Celestia's alicornification realm thing.

Also god tier story great job

She's clearly chosen to make a home for herself in the human world. That's where her friends and life is. It wouldn't make much sense for her to go back.

10741114
Still debatable, her mother figure i.e princess celestia is in equestria plus pri twi, friend groups move on. Her future most likely will go into equestria. Ofc she's not abandoning anyone but she'll most likely visit from time to time but permanent residence for someone who is by all counts an illegal immigrant is close to impossible. Theres a story that explains it really well that I think you'll like its called perspective on this site. Check it out its really good.

This is when I lost all respect for Hasbro

I feel like I may have to agree with LunaEclipsed here. Yeah, Sunset still has friends and family in Equestria, but by this point, she had made an identity in the Human World. Probably, after living in the Human World for 2 years, she would have made herself a paper trail and gotten herself into the system.

9943970
Not really. According to what I've read, Hasbro merely cancelled it because DHX Media had rebranded and lost the rights to make EQG, and they just didn't want to go through the hassle of making a new contract or getting a new animation studio when they're already near the start of Gen 5.

It seems, according to what I see online, people want to believe she got a leadership position, to complement her wanting to be a princess and rule something. Thus, they put her as a teacher at CHS or the Principal of CHS (And I tend to believe that Twilight would be her Vice-Principal or a fellow teacher or a teacher under her employment)

Let's hope they don't cock up G5.

That's how it felt at the time of posting that comment.
