We all wear a mask called composure, beneath which hides a heart that twists with guilt and hidden feelings. Regal as she is, Princess Celestia is no exception. What might be revealed should circumstances cause this mask to slip - or break?

Set several years after the potential conclusion to the series.

Everyone should read this story. At least if they have the slightest interest in Twilestia.

It's just that Awesome :).

Best Twiliestia story out there bar none at the moment. Written beautifully, expressive, and paced well.

Oh, hell yeah. Read this on EQD.

First Night's Favorite Child and now this have come to FiMFiction?

YES! :twilightsmile:

Sweet! I've been tracking this on EqD so I'm quite happy to see it here. I do agree that this is one of the best Twilight/Celestia stories, not just because you aren't doing the cliche -estia plots, but also because you are doing the romance at a good pace. Plus seeing the two smartest ponies in Equestria being idiots in regards to their love life is a hilarious. So thank you for writing this.

In the Name of Her Serene Majesty,
Celestia's Paladin: For Honor and Duty, For the Sun and Moon

Oh Sweet mother of God! Composure is on fimfiction! Varanus, this story is brilliant! I can't wait to see the rest of it!

I saw it at EqD, it's one of the best Twilestia fics I've ever readed! Are you gonna upload the same story, or are you going to continue it?

I like your portrayal of Celestia, and her fears of her sister, but I do not believe that Luna has the ability to control the sun exactly. I understand that Celestia did it but as you said in the story the Sun in MUCH farther away than the moon is but thats just a small thing that made me think for a little while.

Also... Do any of you like Bananas?

Never really been one for ship fics, or Twilestia fics for that matter, but I'm loving the writing in this one. Gonna keep an eye on it.

Oh shit, sorry about that, I confused this fic with another one, so the comment doesn't make any sense. Even though, I've been reading this ship too and its awesome! Keep writting please! :twilightsmile:

It's good to see this here, I generally tend to skip over the story updates on EQD, making me miss most times what stories are actually updated.

good hope to see it continued

Oh my god composure is on FimFiction, life is good to me.

Oh my gosh! You are uploading here now? I'm so happy! I love your story, whenever I hear "shipping" I automatically think of this fic!

just saying:twilightblush:

98043 i am aware it's more, different. and i am sorry i didn't pointed it out. i would like to point out that i am strictly neutrol on "Clopfics" too. and this story is surely more, subtile then what i made.

Ah, I remember this one from way back. Oh those days, no BS in life, no BS [of any extremes] on the internet...who am I kidding? My life sucked then too xD

Fantastic upload, nostalgia feels good man.

I'm really glad this fic made it here. I really enjoyed it on EqD, and this makes it easier to track.

:duck: Legitimately curious why you don't just toss up all four chapters here right away. It's not like I didn't immediately google-fu them from EqD.

But for god's sake write more. This is such a satisfying plot, and elegantly written.

This was so sweet to read! Warms me heart it does! :rainbowkiss::raritywink::twilightsmile:
Very well done!

i can't believe this one is finally here, by far my favorite fan fiction so far. :twilightsmile:


10,000 words not completed...THE HELL

Wow, sunh a warm reception! I'm glad everyone's enjoying the fic! :twilightblush: I'll be updating the story with the next chapters once a week, until we hit Chapter 4. Chapter 5 should be done by then, at which point it'll update concurrently with EqD.

Oblivious!Celestia is best Celestia. She's going to be kicking herself when/if she figures it out.

Nah, I don't consider the story sad, even if there are some moments like that.

Honestly? Exposure. The fic updates so slowly, and the next chapter will take a while, so I want to maximize whatever audience I can get here in the interim. As you and several others have pointed out, one can simply Google the rest of the chapters, so it's not like I'm holding out on anyone... except people who have trouble with Gdocs... :twilightoops:

Ha! Try, "50,000 words not completed"! :trollestia:

Awesome. Period. Although it did seem a bit dark.

Welcome to FIM Fiction Composure, we finally have a way to keep track of the story without waiting breathlessly for EQD submissions :twilightsmile:

Definitely a fine-looking piece of work, even from the first chapter! Definitely tracking this, and good idea with the exposure thing! It will also help with my savoring ^^

it's here :pinkiesad2:
I'm sooooooo happy :pinkiehappy:
One of the few Twilestia i like :heart:

Hmm, in a bunch of fics everypony always eats flowers. I wonder what flowers actually taste li-


This fic is the best fic.

...Okay, that can be hotly contested. But for taking a ship that nearly everyone is squicked out by and making it awesome, you sir get five stars.

Okay, seeing as I follow the Google-Docs version of this story on Equestria Daily, any hints or quotes on when Chapter 5 will be coming out? I await it eagerly.

Great story! Please keep updating and it will get 5 Stars for sure. I've been waiting for a non-troll Twilestia.


One of my favorite stories in the fandom, sir.


See the author's comment; it is expected some time after all the current chapters are up.

Okay here, can some pony please explain to me what actually happened in this chapter? Because my dyslexia was giving me hell this chapter :/ and I couldn't tell what was a dream, and what wasn't :fluttercry: sorry. Great story though if what I think happened

Sorry, the narrative is intentionally confusing after Celestia wakes up, in order to convey her condition subtly.

Two parts are a dream:
- The part with Luna and Celestia stargazing, and the dark shift that scene takes,
- The brief 'she saw, she smelled, she felt, she heard, she tasted' part.

Everything else was real.

Oh neat I've been tracking this on eqd. I'm glad you decided to post it here much easier to track on here

It's always funny how everyone's first instinct when they wake up is to pull out the IV drip. Love the story, by the way. And it's one of those rare ones where I really have no constructive criticism to offer. So just...well done. 5 stars, and tracked.

Snagged the rest of the updates from EQD and read through them - I have to say, I'm quite impressed. Twilestia fics are normally 'Do not want' territory for me because of how odd the relationship can be in some stories. I had heard good things about 'Composure' however, and decided to give it a try. It's been wonderfully done thus far, and I'm looking forward to part five.

Another favorite on fimfiction now! Top shelf.

Best shipping fic in the fandom? Check. :trixieshiftright:

Can't believe I just found this. Instantly ran into EqD to find the rest. You said you'll be updating here every week before updates are on par, but I really hope that doesn't mean it'll take at least 3 weeks before a new chapter.
Because the wait would kill me. x_X

By the gods! This is amazing, MORE!

Beautiful. Wonderful. Awesome. Everyone should read this.

There's an update on EqD, chapter 4!
Please also update it up here so we can track it please :trollestia:

Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.
