"Your lies are bullets. Your mouth's a gun. And no war in anger was ever won." –Selena Gomez


On the day that Silver Spoon and Diamond Tiara would have gotten their cutie marks, Scootaloo performed an amazing sonic rainboom. It caused Scootaloo and her two best friends, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, to get their cutie marks. But, while the rainboom helped some ponies to get their cutie marks, it also prevented Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon from getting theirs. How did Scootaloo manage to do a sonic rainboom? Only she knows the answer.

Pretty good story

Right, I'm in judgey judgemental Judge mode for this contest, so everything I type should be read with that perspective. I'm reading and evaluating this story differently then I normally would.

This isn't a bad story. Actually, it's a pretty good and fun one. Maybe a little rough around the edges; it might have benefited a little bit from a once-over looking to condense or expand a few sections. But overall this was a fun read.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can say it's really a "swapped roles" story, at least not in my judgment. None of the Cutie Mark Crusaders are really in the "role" of Diamond Tiara or Silver Spoon; they may have gotten their cutie marks first but Deets and Silver are defined more by being bullies, or being wealthy, or the like. This is more like swapped timing than swapped roles.

Still, again, this is otherwise a good story and a fun alternate take on how the three CMCs could have gotten their Cutie Marks.

Fair enough! This was my first attempt at a swapped roles story, and after taking a look at some of the other entries, I can definitely tell that my swap was drastically underwhelming compared to them. :rainbowlaugh: Thank you for the input! If you and Nitro Indigo do another Swapped Roles contest, I'll definitely be entering with a story that will (hopefully) exceed this one. :twilightsmile: I'm glad you liked it!
