Important Notice: Blood is Thicker takes place before Sunset. Meanwhile, Reluctant Reunions takes place AFTER Sunset.

Why are these together? I honestly do not remember, but I suspect it's too late to fix that now. Sorry. ^^;;

Blood is Thicker:

Twilight Sparkle receives a letter out of the blue from her mother. She has left her the ages-old task of keeping their family tree updated, and hints to it being incomplete. Will she be able to discover this missing relative, or will she fail as her mother did?

"Reluctant Reunions":

Trixie assures you, no matter WHAT that infernal Twilight Sparkle says, she is NOT the Great and Powerful Trixie's sister, and that mare with her is NOT Trixie's mother!

... And most certainly of all, Trixie is not starving to death or down on her luck! She is the chosen protege of the greatest magician the world has ever know! There is no WAY that Trixie could ever be like that. None!

These works take place in the 'Sunset' universe

Loved this fic on deviant art, check it out, people!

You know what? F$%# Shining Armour, I didn't like him anyways. Your stories the other hand are great. This is the only one I couldn't find before today and had no idea how Twilight was related to Trixy.

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

But what a humiliation conga...

1191829 Shining Armor is just a stepping stone for Twilight to get one hoof closer to Alicorn Awesomeness!

Ah thank you for bringing this here. I really am not fond of dA for reading stories.

Probably the epitome of Trixie as Twilight's sister fic. I love this and it's one of the stories that got me to like Trixie in the first place. And I love your take on Twilight's mother.

What I'm trying to say is: :yay:

A few small of problems...
1) Daffodil as a food item. Daffodils are poisonous and nothing eats them.
2) You misspelled Derpy's name in the 5th paragraph.
3) You referred to Twilight's father as a colt, he should be a stallion.

I am curious as to why you changed the names of some of the characters (and in one case, gender)...

I loved this story on deviantart now its here and i reread it and it is still how i remember it

Still remember it well it's glorius

the only thing i see wrong is "You see, the firstborn foals in our family" if this was writen before the Season 2 finale i understand and won't say anything more about it if not you should remember Shining armor. or just make it "firstborn mare/filly" you know a women tradition. =)

1203903 1. Twilight orders a Daffodil and daisy sadwich in episode 3 season 1.
3. looks like Twilights mother was a filly and not a mare "In front of them sat her mother on a bench, a purple and silvery-blue maned filly".

I know that they have it in the show, it is still poisonous and is not eaten by anything. That makes it a very serious flaw in the show.


This was ALL written just after the conclusion of Season 1 and I am NOT editing it to fit into canon.

Well, this story is interesting.

I look forward to seeing where this goes.

Keep up the great work and good luck!

After some debate, I have decided to make a few minor changes to the story as I publish them here. They are just little things that I do not like anymore and do not affect the story overall, so do not worry about a thing, those of you who have read this before.

"I’m sorry, Twilight. It’s just... you would have told us if you had a sister, or some older brother by now."

Ahahahaha! Retcon for the win!

You forgot to terminate the italics after "DARE" .

The chapter talks about a shock collar keeping Trixie near Twilight. I think these are remnants from an earlier version, before you changed it to the "Bubble Shield" charm?

Does this story have anything to do with the fanfic Sunset?

Ah ok. I remember reading Sunset and I knew that some stuff in this story sounded familiar

It's almost as if Twilight orchestrated the whole set of encounters...

I see you made a few adjustments due to the new season. Darn continuity! Though I'm wondering why you decided to remove the part where AJ tries to buck Trixie. Was that just too violent or something else?

I'm not sure I buy the whole, "unicorns depend on friendship for their magic to work" angle, but it does add a little more drama to Trixie's plight.

Nice work!


AJ was changed because I felt it was a little out of character for her to get that mad that quickly. Rainbow, maybe, but AJ is a too level-headed if headstrong, to go that far IMO.

Hm. I'm a bit confused with the timeline a bit. If this is more of an indirect sequel, I can understand that you have references to the fire from Sunset in this fic, "I beat her idol bloody, hurt my friends, and I burned down almost a quarter of the town all because I got overly stressed," but then why is Twilight's knowledge of Trixie as her sister mentioned in the last chapter of Sunset, even though that's not discovered until this story?

Luna: What about your MOTHER, Twilight, or your SISTER?"
Twilight: "T-Trixie?" Twilight murmured, stymied. "How did you...?"

Or am I missing something?

I put the two stories together because you need one to understand the other and because, in my opinion, the smaller one is too short to really post on its own. BiT happens BEFORE Sunset, while Reluctant Reunions happens AFTER Sunset.


Ah that makes much more sense. Having them put together here makes it seem like they happened right after one another. Thanks!

Not usually a fan of Trixie stuff but am enjoying this thoroughly. Now just to see if Trixie really can make peace.

Didn't see any differences from the last time I read this but it's still enjoyable. Trixie always gets the sad backstory, doesn't she?

Probably not the sisterly reunion that Twilight expected, but they are slowly "budding up" to each other. Though it's got to sting something fierce that Trixie is in a family of powerful unicorns but can't cast the simplest of magic. At the moment. :trixieshiftright:

Wonderfully done!

Wait so what happened in this universe? The family seemed pretty well off from the bits we say during the flashback


This was pretty well written before that episode came up and I am not going to dismantle the whole thing just to fit one fact into canon again. >>

I can't be sure, but I think this was the first story where Trixie's behavior is blamed on her stage persona. At the time I thought it was clever and allowed her to explain away the events in "Boast Busters" but nowadays it just irritates me. I find it a cheap cop-out to make the readers and the cast forgive Trixie quicker. It's like she has a split personality or something. The concept is handled pretty well here, being one of the first Trixie redemption stories I've ever read, but I would rather not see this type of hand-waving anymore. I find Trixie more interesting when that's just the way she really is: a jerk.

Another thing that I find in these types of stories that bug me are the re-introduction scenes, where Trixie has to go to each main character and apologize. I know, this type of thing is necessary to make sure each pony plays nice from no on, but it's a trend that I can probably sing along to now. About the only thing missing is a shipping angle with Twilight, but that's not going to happen here for obvious reasons. :twilightblush:

What sets this story apart from other Trixie stories is the addition of her magic loss. That's an extra wrinkle that helps break down Trixie further than other authors are willing to go. So kudos for that!

I guess this turned into a minor rant so I apologize for that. Waiting for the next installment!

Weird who leaves a note on a tree hmmm*grabs it*
*turns around*huh THE FUK
Vexel was never found again

nice job.......its interesting Trixie is such a great character from a story perspective and she has some great redemption stories.....nice job....also 1st

Awww, how touching.

Nice finish to a wonderful Trixie story! It always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling to see all the characters solve their problems through suffocating friendliness.

Till next time!

Based on the reloaded version of "Words are louder" on DeviantArt, I can see why somepony grey looks like a disaster magnet; she's got that whole 'bite off more than you can chew to look as if you're competent' thing messing her life up.

So would I right in assuming that the first chapter takes place before Sunset, with the rest after it?


Yes. Blood is Thicker is before Sunset with the rest take place afterwards.

1. Twilights father was at the canterlot wedding. HE LIVES! Ah well. Alternete universe and that shazz.
3. Derpy, we love you, even if we dont understand what the f*** you're saying:heart:

Poor Twi:fluttercry:

Ms, Trixie Treats

I prefer Trixie LULAMOON. Sound more natural. But hey, it's your story. And a good one too.

Wow that actually make me shed a couple tears. Manly tears of course. :eeyup:
