I'm a Sonic fan (obviously) who is also a fan of this show. ...not much else to say.


WARNING: There are major spoilers in the comment section. You have been warned!

On the night of Christmas Eve, the CMCs are having a sleepover, talking about what to post next as "Anon-a-Miss". Sweetie Belle is getting worried about Sunset, but Apple Bloom and Scootaloo ignored her worries and told her that Sunset will be fine.

But later that night, they were shocked when they were visited by the ghosts of Apple Bloom's parents, who express their disappointment in them and wanting Apple Bloom to confess to being Anon-a-Miss and make things right. When Apple Bloom refuses to do so, her parents then warned the girls that they will be visited by three ghosts later tonight. Apple Bloom brushes this off, thinking her parents were just joking, only to find that they weren't the next time they woke up.

Based on a classic Charles Dickens' story, "A Christmas Carol".

I'm the one who wrote An Anon-a-miss Christmas Carol. And As a fan of the original Charles Dickens classic, I look forward to seeing your version as well. So You have my support.

Thank you so much! :pinkiesmile:

I was worried that I might offend you after posting my version of it. Let me assure you that mine is completely different and original from yours and I have written most of my story before you posted your version. I hope you enjoy the story regardless.

I hope your hands look good in blood, Bloom. especially Sunset's!

Good work. Keep it up.

I did not expect this to be another anon-a-miss story. but I have liked all of your previous takes on the story so I have high hopes.

Haven’t seen a version of the classic I didn’t like, as long as it’s about the very word I like about it. Redemption. Besides somebody else already did a Equestria girls Christmas carol anyway

Some of you will just say stuff like “You’ll eat those words, Bloom” or “ It will bite you hard, Bloom”

But for me, I will say this:

🙏🏽Oh Spirits of Christmas, I pray to you from the bottom of my heart for Apple Bloom. Please save her soul.🙏🏽

Like I said, not usually a fan of Anon-a-Miss stories but I think this is a good start.

I think this is the first time I have seen a version where the ghost (or ghosts in this case) playing the role of Jacob Marley were good in life instead of suffering for their sins.

"Apple Michelle Bloom!" Bright Mac boomed.

When your parents use your full name you know you are in trouble.

"Sunset having a tough life," Apple Bloom scoffed quietly before pulling the covers over her head.

"Bah, humbug!"

Really laying it on that Apple Bloom is the main Scrooge of the group.

Well, Apple Bloom certainly is a stubborn one! :( I have a feeling she's going to deeply regret the path she's been on. But I'm interested to see where this all goes, it was also a pleasure to proofread for you on this one. :D

Applebloom as Ebenezer Scrooge, Certainly and i certainly gonna love it

I really like where this is going, keep up the good work! :twilightsmile:

Please let me know when your next chapter comes I’m wanting to see what punishment the Cutie Mark Crusaders will get if they choose to continue with their evil plan against Sunset Shimmer.

You and I.

I mean, Apple Bloom and the girls aren't bad persons. They are doing something stupid, but that doesn't make them evil.

I hope you enjoy the rest of this story! :pinkiesmile:

Agreed. And technically, while there were other takes on a Christmas Carol with the Equestria Girls, there were never any other Christmas Carol stories involving Anon-a-Miss on this site, aside from yours and mine of course.

Still, hope you'll like my story in the next following days! :pinkiesmile:

I'm glad to hear that! While it may not be your cup of tea, I hope you'll enjoy this story for the remainder of this week. :pinkiesmile:

Figured I (and SweetTeaFiend) will try something a little different to give this adaption a little spin. :raritywink:

When your parents use your full name you know you are in trouble.

Indeed! :twilightoops:

Really laying it on that Apple Bloom is the main Scrooge of the group.

While the CMCs are equally responsible for their actions as Anon-a-Miss, Apple Bloom was the one who started all of this as the ringleader because of her own personal vendetta against Sunset Shimmer. So of course she is the "main Scrooge" of the group.

I'm glad you like it so far and I hope you'll like the following chapters for the remainder of this week! :pinkiesmile:

And thank you again for the story permission! :twilightsmile:


You are both right. The CMCs aren't evil, they just made a terrible mistake because of their clouded judgment and anger. Plus, they're children, so they don't know any better.

I won't say much, but in the next following chapters, those three will see the damage they have done due to their actions.

Fine, fine. I won't say it again.

...one more thing! Expect the new chapter today! :trollestia:

Isn't Suri Polomare an Earth Pony, not a unicorn...?

Interesting so far. Unlike a lot of EqG adaptations of this story, you refrained from using Dickens' original text. A good choice, seeing as these characters talking in 19th Century English would be a bit weird.

“But… how!? How was this possible?” Scootaloo exclaimed.

To quote the original text; "I do not trust my senses. You see, a little thing might affect them. You could be some sour milk, a fragment of cheese, a leftover of an underdone potato. There's more of gravy than of grave about you!"

I always believed that Celestia might have played a part in a lot of the stuff that went wrong around her because she never fully opened her heart because I read a story that made me question why twilight couldn't get friendship in canterlot unless the idiots in castle were too busy trying to get to the throne without actually having to take responsibility and actually work for it. Celestia was so busy putting everyone in their place that twilight and sunset couldn't be happy because they didn't fit in their boxes and this caused problems in different ways. Twilight got Celestia related anxiety and sunset ran away because Celestia had to have everything her way.

Oh, shoot! You're right! :pinkiegasp: :facehoof:

I just updated this chapter. She's been replaced with Upper Crust instead.

Oh hey, The Blue EM2! It's been a while! :pinkiesmile:

Hope you'll like my story! :twilightsmile:

“Princess Celestia herself was dealing with her own issues after banning her sister to the moon.”

Apple Bloom's eyes widened. “She banned her sister to da moon!? Wat fer!?”

I think you meant to write "banishing" and banished" in there.

That aside, so far so good. That last scene between Celestia and Sunset especially gut wrenching and after that it's understandably why both of them would be hesitant to approach each other to try and make amends.

Wow! I felt that one. I love it!

Good job.

Thank you for pointing them out. I fixed those two words! :pinkiesmile:

And I'm glad you liked the story so far. :twilightsmile:

Before I spend too much time reading this story, does it fix that the CMC have no believable reason for creating Anon-a-Miss?

People are stupid and petty at times especially kids which they are. Celestia push away someone who needed her more than anyone else and because she refuses to face her part in this mess and talk with sunset they won't ever truly heal. Celestia would probably let her take the full fall because she can't actually admit that she didn't do the right thing. Everyone puts her on a pedestal and she unfortunately has to try to live up to their expectations. She never really takes responsibility for her actions. Twilight has been put in danger many times and if she didn't have a bad case of pedestal worship she would notice that Celestia could use the guards or her own sister who is as powerful as her for some of the things that she gave to twilight. After all twilight and friends weild the most powerful weapon in the country yet are put in harms way all the time.

Okay, this chapter made me cry.

Excellent work so far. :twilightsmile:

Touching chapter, and again Apple Bloom trying to prove her point without realizing the consequences of her. Yet.

I'll wait to see who's the next ghost for the Present Christmas. Also, is there a chance to hear this in a future?:


Is that a spoiler for the story, or are you just projecting your hatred for Celestia in answering a question that has nothing to do with Celestia? Does the story or does the story not give the CMC a believable reason to do what they did beyond “our sisters won’t hang out with us as much anymore :fluttershysad:”? Because “people do stupid stuff sometimes” is a fact, but it doesn’t make it any less annoying, especially if it involves potentially ruining someone’s life for something so petty.

Probably. Even though honestly, I perfer this:

It might be annoying but it doesn't change that it's a fact of life that everyone can be stupid sometimes. You have to be an all knowing God not to do that. And the Fandom seems to think that Celestia is at much at fault as sunset for the relationship going wrong. The fact that I'm one of those who believe this and that she didn't get the magic of friendship because nobody besides her sister would be themselves around her because princess doesn't change that.

It was great seeing Somnambula as the Ghost of Christmas Past. Also, Apple Bloom's dialogue being the same as Sci-Twi's when freaking out over being ponies was a nice touch.

Sunset Shimmer had an awful childhood though.

Poor Sunset. Don't you just wanna reach into the story and give her a comforting hug?


"People can be stupid" is, again, TRUE, but it's still STUPID. And people don't like stupid unless it's funny - the CMC ultimately almost ruined Sunset's life through their stupidity. And it's ALSO true that stupid reasons are not VIABLE reasons: if anything, it makes the CMC, who are better than that, very unlikeable, especially since they got away with it without so much as a slap on the wrist. They at the very least should've had a better reason to do what they did, if at all.

Yeah but remember what we want and what get sometimes 2 different things. We all dislike people who hurt others for stupid petty reasons but unfortunately somehow nobody notices when they become the stupid petty person who is causing pain. It's not right but it is real and unless you can get the 3 ghosts to show up more often than stories and TV then all we can do is our best and try not to be the stupid petty person who hurts others.

Does this story make their actions believable or is it no different from the comic?

That doesn't even REMOTELY justify terrible writing, though (not attacking this fic, I'm attacking the Anon-a-Miss comic if anything, get that squared away). It's an excuse if anything else. Yes, people do stupid things - people make mistakes all the time. But there's a point which you gotta stop and wonder just how stupid someone is allowed to be in the realm of a story - the stupidity should still be in character, and if it's out of character that means there should be a BETTER reason for it to be out of character. Because no matter what you say, none of the reasoning given justifies what the CMC did at all, and saying "oh, everyone does stupid stuff all the time" doesn't make me wanna see those three get expelled any less (even though I love them very much, I just did not like them in that particular comic). They DROVE SUNSET TO TEARS and made her think that she should consider LEAVING FOREVER over this, along with sending the school into a panic of sorts - this isn't an "oops, my mistake" moment, that's a "we done fucked up" moment, and the story flat-out treated it like the former.

Oh you made me cry... great chapter

Yes I would like them to be punished more harshly than they usually are considering they are hardly ever punished but even in the real world stupid reasons sometimes allow people an excuse to be a jerk.

Whoa, that was heavy. I thought I had problems!

If Sunset figures out the real Anon-a-Miss, I fear she might seek vengeance on them, just she did on Upper Crust, maybe even return to her demon form to exact retribution (though I hope not). Plus, the Rain-dumbs are gonna have egg on their faces once they realize their folly. After all, what poor ol’ Bacon Hair have to lose at this point? If I were in Sunset’s position, I’d be angry at the world and seek revenge, too. But that’s just me.

Did you not see the episode where he's given Tohru that treatment and Tohru snaps and yells that at him?
