A young Twilight Sparkle can't sleep. And why should she? It's Hearthswarming Day tomorrow! And so, she stays up in the night, eyeing her gifts, just waiting to open them. But Santa won't come if she stays awake. Perhaps an early Hearthswarming present will help her rest easy?

Yes. It will. And it will do much more than that...

Happy Christmas to you as well Church!!!

That story hit me in my good feels happy Christmas/ Hanukkah / Kwanza/ Diwali/ any thing I forgot

Such great cuteness.



Happy Hearth's Warming day everypony



That was beautiful! :pinkiesad2:
I feel so warm inside right now...
*cough* ...and a little bit envious of your great verbosity... *cough*

Merry Christmas to you!

So awesome! :pinkiehappy: But, isn't Smarty Pants female?:rainbowderp:

1852785 Spectacular!

Thank you :twilightsmile:

1852829 Thanks for reading! I appreciate it :heart:

1852941 Bold words.

Thank you for reading!

1853165 Oh dear gawd, an animated version would kill everyone with adorableness...

1853272 Me? Great? Oh gosh no. I only try to improve as time goes on. We'll get there, I promise. Thanks for reading!

1853367 Smarty Pants is an inanimate object. I don't know whether or not they specified it as a "he/she" in the show.

1854063 I think Twilight said Smarty Pants is a she in "Lesson Zero" when she presented her to the CMC. But regardless of that teeny tiny thing, it's still an awesome fic:raritywink:

1854082 I might go back and look it over.

Thank you for the kind words :twilightsmile:

This is a really heart warming story, I will say you did a great job bringing out the Dawww in this:raritywink:

1857229 Thanks so much! I'm glad that you enjoyed it :twilightsmile:


Blargh, I bucking love it. I bucking love it so much. That ending in particular is just beautiful.:twilightsmile:

Thank you, maker. Thank you for the massive d'awww. I needed it.

1858223 Awww, thanks for reading! I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much :twilightsmile:

Beautiful and heart warming. Nothing more pure and sincere than a mothers love for their child. :twilightsmile:

Thanks, Church.

1859444 No, thank you for reading :twilightsmile:

Beautiful story Church :pinkiesad2:
Thank you so much for this wonderful piece, for putting up with me making your stories into rainbows, and most of all, for being my first and best friend on this site. Your awesome antics and infectious insanity continue to make my, and everyone else's, time on here such a pleasure.

Merry (belated) Christmas Church :)

1869324 Quite welcome, friend :twilightsmile:

Shall we waltz into the sunset together? Yesyes.

And yes, my stories into rainbows. I will not deny that.

I want to describe my soaring heart to you, want to touch on the perfect, beautiful simplicity of this story.

Anything I say would be trite in comparison to what I just read.


1869985 You're being too kind :heart:

But I still thank you for reading :twilightsmile:

Darnit, THAT WAS SO ADORABLE!!! I LOVE THIS!!!:raritystarry:

Another emotional masterpiece conducted by Churchy!:ajsmug:

1877355 Aww, thanks for reading, love :heart:

should have read this before christmas,

Nice Story Church!! I love all your works!:pinkiehappy:

I appear to have joined this party way too late...

But still, the story was great. Simple idea but incredibly well executed. Well done, Church! :twilightsmile:

1891517 It is never too late :heart:

Thanks so much for reading!

Such a nice sweet story...that only made me realize I have no touching childhood memories like that. I tried...couldn't find anything even close!

1901640 Believe me, I didn't have a lot of childhood memories like this either haha. Happy you enjoyed, thanks for reading!

Sometimes I have to wonder at your brilliance.

Now, please don't assume this is some manner of pandering or boot-licking; I'm quite serious. I have on several different occasions literally given full pause to grasp the scope of your quietly endless wonder put to script.

This story required some wondering, gratefully.

1905337 Then I thank you for the praise :twilightsmile:

More is to come, and it only gets better from here on out, I promise you. We've only just begun to scratch the surface. I'm terribly happy you enjoyed this read, and it still gets me that I'm able to evoke such emotions out of people. All from some guy in the middle of a cornfield. Huh.

“Her name,” Mom said as she caressed the delighted filly, “is Smarty Pants. She was mine when I was little, and she was my best friend. Now, she is yours.”

Headcannon accepted.

3409341 Holy crap! I completely forgot about this story!

For once, I'm very happy to see something put into that group (which now seems like a burial ground for fics unfortunately).

Aw man... memories on this one :heart:

Thanks for kind of... like... indirectly leading me back to it! It's time to get back into the Christmas spirit. After Halloween.

And this may sound weird but thanks for reading as well!

3409705 Smarty Pants is best... pants... er something.

3409341 Also, to clarify, I speak of the "Everything Combined" group, not Twilight's Library.

You had me worried for a moment! And yeah, I don't see a lot of activity in the "Everything Combined" group, but I'm still a member, so I add stuff to it. And when i see something I like, I like to spread it around -- and not just to Twilight's Library. :twilightsmile:

(Why the ID change -- lose your password? Also, did you know someone is a big enough fan of your stuff to create a group about you? Well, two groups, technically, but I'm assuming the second was accidental.)

3409891 The ID change was for a fresh start. I actually abandoned Church quite a long time ago, and had left fimfiction for over six months. People were very distraught about that, and I think that sucks, so I had to come back, especially for a few friends that I have here.

I'm always so honored when people like my work! Yay! More people to bug now! :pinkiehappy:

Also, one might expect a new "Everything Group" sometime into the future, where I can actually do upkeep and run it as it was meant to be run.

Welp, I'm convinced. I just left "Combined Classic" (or whatever you want to call it) and I'll keep my eyes open for the new one. I mostly joined to try to get more exposure for my stories, but I don't know that any stories I add to it are gaining any benefit...

3409966 I have no idea what's going on in that group anymore let me tell you

Honestly? Not much. I assume somebody besides me adds stories to it, but I couldn't say for certain.

Now this group is another matter entirely. I know what's going on. And you are cordially invited to join. :twistnerd:

3410007 Oh why the heck not :ajsmug:

My stupid screen is getting blurry...

Gah! I'm dead, you killed me with filly Twi, hope you're happy!!
