After watching another majestic night, Twilight is told to make a wish because wishing on a star always grants wishes. She refuses. After all, it's only an old pony's tale. Climbing into bed, she has a strange dream, yet little does she know, dreams are the desires and wishes of the heart. Upon her waking, she may just find that the stars are rather lenient in their rules and methods.

New installments are on a weekly schedule. Updates most likely to take place on Friday/Saturday CT. Occasionally I may do a surprise Monday update as well. Until then! Ciao and enjoy!

Shit just got real, yo!

Also tracking.

Nice twist ending! :pinkiecrazy:

are you a- sweet dream or a beautiful nightmareee!

Sorry couldn't resist obvious joke

This can only end well! I'm sure of it! fav'd and upvoted, because I want to know just how well it'll end up :pinkiecrazy:

This is pretty good so far. Deserves more attention than it's getting. I liked the dream, and where this appears to be heading. Needs to be more fics with Nightmare Moon and Twilight (that don't involve Romance or Nightmare Moon not being evil).

I see the ending and I'm like "this better not be a one chapter story." *sees incomplete* "good."

Looks promising, though the ending was a little to predictable considering the story name, description and character tags...
Does this new story mean a hiatus for A Twilight Princess? Are you planning on working on both stories at the same time?

Not entirely sure what's going on here.


But I like it. Take my everything :|

Wouldn't it make more sense to say "A wish is a dream... or a nightmare."

Damn it, I was hoping this was a TwilightxSpike story. Either way I love it so far, and I like that Twilight's choice of company is switched around from theinexplicablebrony's comic on DA where the mane six were watching a portending meteor shower without Spike.

I'm gonna follow this for the writing alone. The poetic imagery in Twilight's dream sequence was gorgeous.

Oh Celestia almighty! :pinkiegasp: I left this just this morning, and I come back to this ridiculous amazingness! :rainbowkiss:
I didn't have the slightest idea that this would end up featured! :raritycry: :twilightblush:

Thank you so much to everyone! I'll be responding to everyone shortly as soon as I finish fainting! :yay::yay::yay:

Watching from her balcony that was seldom put to use, Twilight observed peered through her amateur telescope to see even deeper into the ocean, knowing that her eyes alone could barely even scratch the surface of such an enigmatic piece.

Might want to fix that.

Well, it seems like a not bad starting, but only the next chapter will tell do this story is good, so I will favorize it temporary, hope next chapter will not dissapointme.

:pinkiegasp:YES! a Sparkling Nightmare.

well... is NMM gonna merge herself with Twi, or make her part of the sky, quite literally?

Shit just got real.:twilightangry2:
Good stuff. Looking forward to more.


That is all.

I always use images to convey my thoughts. :trollestia:

That was a first. I have never even imagined anyone making love to the night sky itself.
Not Luna, not Celestia, no one. Just Twilight, the Moon and the Stars. :heart:
What will Luna say when she finds out that the night sky just cheated on her? With her friend Twilight? :pinkiegasp:

i can see it now ...
Luna "Hey Moon, time to get up."
Moon "Thanks Twily ... LUNA! I mean Luna!"

Technically, there's an estimated three hundred sextillion or so plus stars in the observable universe, but you're right. There are a lot of stars out tonight." Spike rolled his eyes.

Sextillion. I'm guessing Luna did have company on the moon after all.:rainbowlaugh:

"Making a wish! Everypony says that if you wish upon a shooting star, it has to come true!" the purple and green dragon answered back promptly as soon as he finished wishing, grinning happily.

"Spike. You know that's just an old ponies' tale. No one ever got what they wanted by wishing on a star." HE??A shrugged.

"Well it's just fun to do anyway. Why don't you make a wish?" TWILIGHT?? scoffed.

"Making wishes only leads to wishful thinking which leads to lack of results. There's no point really," she recited as if reading from a scientific report.

"Alright then. Your loss." TWILIGHT? ignored that, and continued to watch the shower of stars
YOUR DIALOGUE. It confuses me. :rainbowhuh:

This ending... eiteher Luna is now out of the job... or Nightmare Loves to play Kinky games at night:trollestia:...

Either Way My Alicorn Twilight senses are tingling now, she will be probably become the Alicorn of the stars

Woah, awesome chapter! :pinkiehappy:

This shows a lot of promise so I'll be keeping an eye out to see which way this goes. Not sure if I want to star it yet. Well written regardless, so nice job there. :ajsmug:

You did seem to have a bit of a case of the "lavender mare" syndrome going on though. If you mix up your descriptions of Twilight and how you refer to her though, that would be solved.


Promising first chapter of a story here Mekon. I will be watching to see where you decide to take this story!

Just the two of us~! :rainbowkiss:
Stuck im the middle with you~!

Out of nowhere. With a shotgun.

Don't mind me, just tracking.

Another TwiLuna. :facehoof: Joy. I'll just move on without disliking because this just doesn't interest me. Ships like this (TwiLestia, TwiLuna, TwIxie, TwiDash, AppleDash) are a dime-a-dozen, although they can be well-written. I guess it's sort of like certain crossover combos in its triteness.

Remember kids, just because you don't like a certain idea for a fic doesn't mean it's bad. it just means you probably won't like it.

And then the universe exploded.


Anyway... Awesome chapter! Need some moar!

Another story with promise, TRACKING!

1476904 And your post just explained what and why NMM came out of nowhere all of a sudden.
and speaking of NMM......



Now who ever said this was a TwiLuna? :trixieshiftleft:

Oh and you guys are all awesome btw! :rainbowkiss:
I've already nearly completed the next chapter! Hopefully by tomorrow afternoon or Monday it will be edited and posted. :heart:

Nightmare Moon is a stalker? :pinkiegasp:
Actually, no surprises there.

Okay... either Nightmare Moon is stalking Twilight Sparkle, something changed and allowed Nightmare Moon to survive and she knows Twilight is responsible, Twilight's stumbled into an alaternate dimension...

...Or Twilight IS Nightmare Moon :pinkiegasp:

God I love it when a story shows great promise. I don't quite know exactly where your going to take this story but I can't wait to find out. :pinkiehappy:

Hopefully some TwiMoon?

I'm already loving it.

1477958 I can't help but think that Twilight reminds me of a dinosaur in that image.

Also, Twight Mare Moon? I'm in.

1478034 It's about Twilight, romance and nighttime... TwiLuna is the only reasonable thing! :trollestia:

bloody hell it's nightmare moon!!!

1476367 *shakes the author franticly* Why haven't you updated yet?! :pinkiegasp:

this looks interesting!:pinkiehappy:
the dialogue and some descriptions are a little confusing from time to time, but it's not interrupting the flow much.

moonlight shipping inc?:raritystarry:

Holy derp. She be screwed.

...finally removed her left eye from the tube...

She did what?

beautiful writing so fr. Wonderful words paint clear pictures of the scenes. will continue reading now :yay:

It confuses you? :rainbowhuh: How come?
This dialogue is actually grammatically sound. Let's look at EqD's Editor's Omnibus.

✔ "Hi there," the pink pony giggled. (She giggled while saying the words.)
✔ "Hi there." The pink pony giggled. (She said those words, then giggled.)
✔ "Hi there." The pink pony grinned. (The word 'grinned' isn't a 'speaking' verb.)
✔ "Hi there!" the pink pony shouted. (Exclamations and queries replace the comma.)

Looking at the dialogue; First, Spike answers something Twilight asked, grinning happily. Then, Twilight says something, which Spike shrugs at. Spike, then, replies while Twilight scoffs at it. At the last line, Spike says something, which Twilight ignores.


Ships like this (TwiLestia, TwiLuna, TwIxie, TwiDash, AppleDash)

Shipping should only be capitalized at names.
IE. TwIxie, or Twixie rather, is Twilight x Trixie.

To be fair, there's really no official shipping syntax...
Like, I think NMMxTS is actually MoonLight, hence the capitalization.

I know a great shipping syntax to use:
Capitalization; shippings should always start with a capital letter, and then (only) be capitalized at names. (With the exception of common words like light, dance, etc...(optional))
For instance, TwiLestia, the "L" should not be capitalized, as "Lestia" isn't a word, or a name.
RariLight, light is a common word, whether you capitalize the "L" or not, is up to you.
FlutterDash, Dash is a name and should be capitalized.
TwiShy, (That's what it's called, right?) Shy is both a word and a name, thus it should be capitalized. (Fluttershy's initials are FS, thus shy is a name.)
Celuna, the "L" is not capitalized, as it's short for Celestia x Luna.

Interesting, definitely worth the fave/email and upvote. Please continue.

I actually really like the idea of Nightmare Moon as a force that grants wishes. If she must be given independent existence, at least this doesn't absolve Luna of her responsibility for the whole eternal night thing.
