"r5h, your story was also weird in that you had like some of the cleverest jokes in the contest and also some of the dumbest" -Aragon


Rarity can't sleep these days.

It's nothing she can't handle, of course: one more source of stress for an aspiring fashionista as ambitious as herself isn't really important. So none of her friends need to help her with her nightmares.

And then, all of a sudden, one of them does anyway.

The Enchanted Kingdom's dream chapter has nothing on this.

Good job twisting the dream cliches in a clever way for Rarity.

Under normal circumstances, I'd assume the stranger is Luna, but this is for a RariTwi bomb... plus Luna is an adult and Rarity is a teen here.

I enjoyed the dialogue and the 100% accurate French dream.

The stranger leaned back, ever so slightly, as if stricken. “Do you not... recognize me?” said the voice, and while it wasn't possible to see their eyes, Rarity could tell they weren't looking at her.


The stranger looked around, and then looked at the ground, so many miles away. “Sleep well,” they said, and started tapping at their helm as they turned away.


And the stranger opened up their mouth—

Its either Twilight or Luna

Rarity had the best view in all of Paris: she could see the Louvre from here.

The Louvre was wearing a beret, because it was in France.

Brilliant blend of overachieving Rarity, surreal dreams, and teasing the inevitable pairing. Looking forward to more.


I'm glad you enjoyed it! The dream sequences in particular were a little difficult for me, so I'm glad they seemed to land so well.

Well, I guess we'll just have to see, won't we? Thanks for commenting!

Aw darn I should have put the Louvre in a beret. Missed opportunity there. In any case, glad you liked it so far!

“What—but I trust you wouldn't,” Rarity stammered, “because that would be an invasion of privacy—”

After how cavalier she is with it in canon, I will never grow tired of seeing people acknowledge this in fanfiction :pinkiehappy:

This is fun so far! I like the repetition of her dream, and I’m curious to see what’s next to come.


Well, in canon she mostly does it on people who she thinks are using dangerous magic, so it's somewhat okay.

I'm writing the next chapter right now, as a matter of fact! I hope you like it!

But she was in no mood to be calmed right now. Her fists bunched up the sheets beneath her as she looked up at the ceiling and shouted, “ TWILIGHT SPARKLE! ”

Twilight? really? I thought it was Luna:pinkiegasp:

I only realized what Twilight was up to a few paragraphs before she outright said it. Fascinating application of magitech. Now if only Rarity would learn to accept some degree of outside help before her inevitable crash and burn...

(And honestly, the most unbelievable part of this story is that Rarity even has a period free for study hall. :raritywink:)

Looking forward to more.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or if you never read the story description.



Everyone needs a study hall in senior year. And yeah, I figured it would be pretty clear who the stranger was, seeing as this part of the RariTwi bomb.

In any case, I'm glad you're still enjoying it! I'm really looking forward to the next chapter: I think it's gonna be a lot of fun.

“So I wanted to talk about this morning,” Twilight said.

Time and place, Sparkle.

“Oh, but haven't you heard, darling?” Rarity managed to crack a smile. “Pressure is what makes diamonds.”

And the carbon that makes those diamonds comes from long-dead corpses.

Good to see Rarity admit she's bitten off more than she can chew. The question s what she's going to cut off of the mouthful.


As fun as Rarity's "pressure is what makes diamonds" line was, I'm a lot prouder of Luna's response.

The next chapter will definitely mark a shift in how Rarity manages her priorities, and some other shifts as well. Glad you're enjoying it!

My college roommate had the John Cena meme as his alarm. Made me chuckle every time.
