"Hey, Twilight. You’re up late.

"Yeah, I couldn’t sleep."


It’s two in the morning and everypony in Canterlot Castle is asleep. Everypony, that is, except for Twilight and Cadence.

Plagued by nightmares about recent events, the two soon-to-be sisters join together for a cup of hot cocoa, tears and deep conversations. Brace yourself; it’s going to be a rough night.

No Night Court?

Wonderful slice of life and blast from the last.

Who says that all the old stories have already been told ?

Thereʼs always new stories to be told, even if it's about thatʼs well over a decade old.

Glad you enjoyed this.

Iʼm afraid I donʼt understand your comment.

Luna wasn't holding night court at the time?

At two in the morning? No, she wasnʼt.

Hence the meaning of the term "night court". :facehoof:

There was a general consensus among the fandom that once Luna had been fully rehabilitated and updated on Equestrian law, Canterlot would now be able to hold hold a 24 hour court, and nocturnal/night shift supplicants could go to Luna's court, including thestrals.

Iʼm afraid that does not happen in the story and, even if it was, Twilight went straight from her room to the kitchens, where the fic mostly takes place.

That was a good story.

Considering this is right after the failed changeling invasion, Luna is extra busy with dream patroling methinks.

Really love this. Well done. :heart:

I just realized how much the interaction would've worked in the actual episode.

Now thereʼs an idea.

Thank you!

Yup! Iʼve always thought that the changeling attack mustʼve left some lasting scars on our heroes.

This is a very good one-shot. The comment that I am the jam wrote about Night Court . It was a show that was on back in the 80's . It was very funny.

Thank you for the kind words.

A good story. Yes there are scars, but there is hope for the future being a lot better.

Very real, yet cute.

Thank you both for your kind words. Glad you enjoys the story.

Sometimes the best stories don't need to have a lot of action, but rather just a bit of reflection.
Well done and nicely played! :trollestia:

That is was. :rainbowlaugh:
This said, I'm rather surprised there's such a lack of comedic Luna-themed Night Court stories here. :rainbowderp:

I do love introspective fics as well. Thanks a bunch for giving this story a read!

Good stuff! I love seeing bonding moments in this little family unit.

I really like Twilight’s family. It was an absolute pleasure writing them. Thank you for the kind words and glad you enjoyed this piece.

(reads description...)

IIn the words of Wambu, "This is gonna get feels-y. Be very afraid."

It does feels-y. But donʼt worry, itʼs not sad.

Also the thing with fanmade ideas? You can ignore them all you want, and people will just have to deal with it. When it comes to whatever Luna is up to at this hour.

Seeing how scared Shining was. Man that made me tear up.

Yup. My story, my headcanon.

What heʼs been through must have been absolutely terrifying. Imagine finding out that the person you thought was your fiancée was an actually an impostor whoʼs been brainwashing you, and that your actual fiancée had gone missing all this time.

Very nicely done. I quite liked this look into the aftermath of the Canterlot Wedding and its impact on Twilight, Cadence, and Shining Armor as well. It felt true to the characters, logical given the events of the episode... and still ended on a note that felt true to the spirit of the show as well. :twilightsmile:

Thank you for your kind words.

It's always like the heroes did this and the heroes did that, but no one thinks how all those events could affect ordinary people (ponies).
A good piece, and I liked how far back you reached in the show's timeline to tell a story. Although another round of proofreading could elevate it even more.

You just gave me a bright idea - The events of the show, through the eyes of the average Equestrian.

And thank you for your kind words.


The events of the show, through the eyes of the average Equestrian.

It's not often you see something like that. Go for it!

Also like your idea here about how Cadance survived.

“Alicorn magic,” Cadance replied. “We can go long periods of time without food and water. Maximum of four weeks, I think.”

Might use it myself if I need an explanation.

Thanks! It's always been a personal belief of mine that alicorns have a whole slew of attributes that other ponies don't have, including an ability to withstand extended periods of hunger.
