This was really sweet! I love the idea that something like Twilight becoming an alicorn was obvious to everyone but her, and this is some delightful friendshipping with Rarity.

Nice. :)

"Darling, you earned your ascension by doing what I couldn't even hope to do. Sure, I can turn a little shop in a provincial town into a fashion empire before I reach my thirties all while effectively raising a destructive child who is not mine. I can dupe a clan of ponynapping dogs into letting me leave with a veritable mountain of gems. I can kick and blast my way through a swarm of changlings all while looking fabulous, but to complete a single spell created centuries ago by a wizard who has an entire wing of the Canterlot Library devoted to his many spells and an entire school of spellcasting named after him yet still somehow never managed to ascend himself? I fear that is simply beyond me. Bitter? No, I'm not bitter at all."

*ENTER RAINBOW DASH THROUGH THE CLOSED WINDOW*

"Hey, I heard you guys talking about how totally deserving Twilight is of her new wings, and Rarity's right, Twilight. You did something that none of the rest of us could do. I mean, yeah, I am the fastest flyer alive, and I can do some pretty awesome stuff like break the sound barrier and create nuclear blasts, which makes me radical in literally every single sense of the term. I mean, really, I'm a weapon of mass destruction on four hooves, and I did it all with no formal training after I, uh... left flight school. But to write up the last part of a spell that was mostly written by a guy who died a long time ago is totally all you, Twi.

*FLUTTERSHY DESCENDS THE LIBRARY'S STAIRS WITH A BAG OF OWL FEED ON HER BACK*

"Rarity! Rainbow Dash!" she admonishes in a whisper. "You are not being fair. The princess chose Twilight for this, because of how special she is. It doesn't matter that the spell that she finished is completely useless or that she can't do things like dominate an industry in just a few years or make big, scary explosions. ...Or scare away full grown dragons and cocatrices with just a look or tame an elemental god of chaos with the power of niceness... Um, Twilight is special."

*PINKIE PIE ERUPTS FROM A PILE OF UNSHELVED BOOKS ON THE FLOOR TO FLUTTERSHY'S UNBRIDLED TERROR*

"Yeah! Twilight is so special and unique that she's not even just a unicorn anymore! She the Unique-orn, and everything is her property, because she can do magic that nopony else in the whole world can, and believe me that is NOT easy. I mean, do you have any idea how hard it is to appear POOF right where you need to be for any given occasion? Or to predict the future? Or to make your mouth so big that it can swallow an entire three-layer cake whole? Most of that stuff even Twilight doesn't understand, but she DOES understand cutie mark-switching spells which are just as good I'm sure."

*APPLEJACK STANDS JUST INSIDE THE OPEN FRONT DOOR UNTIL NOW UNNOTICED*

"Why sure it is, Pinkie. Shoot, if she were to give herself a proper apple mark, I bet she could harvest a whole orchard all by herself, just like me."

An exasperated Twilight sighs. "Applejack, I could harvest every apple in Sweet Apple Acres in five seconds before my transformation."

*AWKWARD SILENCE. RAINBOW DASH COUGHS INTO HER HOOF*

"Oh, shut up, y'all."

Sorry, I just thought that the idea of her friends being bitter and sarcastic over it was funny, and that one line of yours was the perfect set-up.

Marvelous stuff. Post-ascension anxiety fics make for great friendshipping opportunities, especially ones where everyone else saw it coming. I wonder who won the betting pool.

Thank you for a lovely read.

While I wish you could have delved a bit more on twilight feeling like she stole rarity's future, I understand it wasn't about over assuaging her feelings.

Good moment with the hoof lifting her chin.

I didn't really get a Rari x twi vibe from it though.
