My little villain: the origin story. Loved it, a very fine read :twilightsmile:

thaank uuu.. it was very fun to write too ^_^ #sunsetsweep

Celestia, I don't think you speech is going to have the effect you intended...

oh well. she cant win 'em all

Who knows? Maybe she'll luck out with that new filly.

Nice. A very good setup for why Sunset was obsessed with getting wings that isn't her simply being a power grabber. This would make it as her seeing them as the answer for her being the next in line.

I love how this fic gives more understanding to why Sunset became a villain. This went deeper than what the movies/show gave us. It’s a nice look from her perspective and how she could have misconstrued what Celestia meant.

This is great! It's such a creative and powerful vision of Sunset's backstory - takes what we already know and expands on it beautifully. Thank you for writing it.

Instantly marked as a favorite

If you say you know the anwsers - chances are... You don't X) Is this "canonical" backstory, where she becomes arrogant, or is it fanon, where she actually figures the real deal early and replaces Twilight?

This is a good story, and a good backstory for an important part of Sunset Shimmer's life.

If I was a story shipper, I would definitely ship this story,

i'd say 'canon'! Or at least 'canon to the version of g4 that exists in my head', since im sure theres a version of sunset's backstory hidden somewhere in IDW comics

The birthplace of her relentless ambition. To be ready to take the throne. I enjoyed this.

Quite an original start to Sunset's ego.
