Of all the bonds shared in the town of Ponyville, few are stronger than the bond between alpha filly Diamond Tiara and her loyal compatriot, Silver Spoon. They became besties on the first day they met, and since that day they've been absolutely inseparable. It's almost as if the two were destined to be together...

...forever.

I love that last sentence. It gave me shivers.

Very well done. I like the changes you've made, it looks great :pinkiesmile: And you're welcome :twilightsmile:

Very interesting, future chapters hold some potential here.

My God... This scares the shit out of me, man. Awesome story, faved and liked and followed.

Wow! I am intrigued! Lets see if you can give DT more depth.

I fear for Diamond Tiara's sanity. :pinkiesad2:

You need a second chapter. I'm serious. You need a second chapter. :flutterrage:

Nice story. I shall give you a Fav

only problem is the action, the "meat" of the story, went by quickly.

Was Silver Spoon a friend who died? What do the CMC think about Tiara's delusion? Did Tiara truly believe that Silver Spoon was real?

You have me asking questions which means that you've piqued my interest. You've also made me feel sympathetic towards Diamond Tiara, something that no other story has managed. I look forward to the next chapter. :pinkiesmile:

Wait, is this meant to imply that Silver Spoon is demon?

that was so creepy but awesome!!! more chapters plez!!!!!!!!

2235782 My best guess is that Ms. Cheerilee had a talk with the class at some point near the beginning I the year to not point it out. That or when she first started talking about Silver Spoon I was normal for fillies that age to have imaginary friends, and the rest of her class jus sees her as a whiney foal for still having one.

Yay! Seconds chapter! Good job, I really liked this one!
I wonder if Diamond will turn out like :pinkiecrazy:

I have tons of questions, though I must agree that her panic could have been an entire chapter. I imagine this will happen later, when we know more. For now, thanks for writing!

Being a teacher doesn't mean that you have all the answers. It's a sad truth of Ms. Cheerilee's chosen profession that she must cope with. :ajsleepy:

Also, why do I get the sinking feeling that Filthy Rich is going to be of no help whatsoever? :ajbemused:

Oh, the chills of this... Keep this coming! Oh, and the feels! Yes, yes, We likes it, We wants more! We NEEDS more!!! GIVE US THE PRECIOUS!

Methinks that Silver Spoon is more than just an "imaginary friend," and that Cheerilee knows much, much more than she is letting on.

Hmm.. so Silver Spoon is either imaginary and in DT's head or post traumatic memory that is haunting her. Like she knew a Silver Spoon and killed her or something.

MOAR.

Now.

By Royal Decree of me.

This is interesting. I love the premise of this story, but it raises questions too. This story should have an AU tag to it, because it dismisses almost everything that happens in the show concerning Diamond Tiara. Surely some ponies in class would have brought up the weirdness of seeing this bossy and prissy filly talking to herself or doing her little rump bump with no one at the other end. So yeah, this needs an AU tag.

That being said, the story itself is good, could use a little more descriptions, but it's a good idea all the same. Kind of interesting too, seeing Diamond Tiara scared and unsure, like there had never been any other pony to come up and ask her who she was talking to all this time. That really does bug me, because it seems like this has been going on for a while, and Diamond Tiara knew in heart that Silver Spoon wasn't real, but still let herself believe the lie. Sorry, the holes in this story are hard to miss, but I hope they get answered in future chapters. :twilightsmile:

2242314 I suspected that it may merit the AU tag, but I PMed a mod about it and he said it wasn't separated enough from canon. I only showed him the first chapter, though, so maybe I should add the tag now.

And rest assured, all of your questions will be answered. I have an entire backstory mapped out for DT.

2242407
Hmmm, alright, that convinced me. I'll be watching this and seeing where you plan on taking the reader with this re-imagining of the best filly.

Poor Cheerilee. It seems it isn't going to be so easy.

Well this is an interesting twist I've seen on Diamond Tiara so far.

i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/5408438016/h19F79741/

I shall be reading more, my good sir

I like your depiction of Cheerilee in this chapter. :ajsmug: I did feel that the chapter was a little short, but I guess that's because it leaves me hungry for MORE! :flutterrage:

This has some potential. Keep it up! :pinkiesmile:

Any idea on future updates? I'd really like to see more of this fic.

It'll come... I just need some time to figure out what direction I'm going to take the story in next.

I see. So you pull no punches in getting the reader interested, eh?

You've definitely got a brilliant idea at your disposal here, and Cheerilee's part's been done exceptionally well. My only concern was how quickly the reader is thrown into the conflict. Miss Cheerilee immediately began the story by telling Diamond about Silver's nonexistence, and Silver in turn almost immediately turned villainous before Diamond had any real time to sort out how she felt about it. The relationship between Diamond and Silver could use more development to better emphasize how painful it all is.

Still, it's looking good so far. I wish you the best in your future efforts.

Interesting perspective. Silver Spoon as an imaginary friend.. a construct of a feeble and depsperatly selfish mind. NO WONDER she is the PERFECT companion! Looking back on the episodes is like looking back on the movie "The Sixth Sense". Like Bruce Willis, Silver Spoon COULD very well not exist as nopony interacts with her directly. Diamond is the focus.:pinkiegasp:

You have made me doubt that "best pony" even exists.. no Ima go kill myself:trollestia:

I loved the first Chapter. it was chilling and sad and I had a WTF moment when Cherilee said "there is no Silver Spoon"

oh and before I forget, then there is this

Did not see the imaginary friend coming.

great twist.

this story is awesome! will there be an update?

You must finish this. You must!

4633922 I know :ajsleepy:

For the longest time, I had no idea where to take this fic. I tried mapping out the story a dozen different ways, but no matter what I did, it seemed like I was never satisfied with the end result. Plus, I decided to take a pretty long break from fimfiction when I went through the whole graduate school application process, so that didn't help.

But I promise I have not abandoned this fic. I'm writing a new chapter as we speak and you can expect to see it relatively soon! :twilightsmile:

4633922 Then I am now following this story as well.

Now I feel even worse for Ms. Cheerilee. Not only does she just want to help, but for whatever reason, Filthy Rich is blaming her for this. I honestly don't know why that is. :trixieshiftright:

Also, is it just me, or is Silver Spoon slowly turning into Diamond Tiara's Shadow? It's as if she represents everything ugly in Diamond Tiara's soul, and she's taunting her about it. Again, I fear for Di's psyche. :pinkiesad2:

You're back! And you brought another chapter with you! :pinkiehappy: I'm so glad you've not given up on this fic. Don't worry how long it takes you; I'll be waiting. :ajsmug: (I also happen to be guilty of making people wait several months for my updates.)

Onto the chapter itself, and it looks like Diamond's hallucinations are getting even worse. :twilightoops: Part of me wonders if the CMC will have a part to play in all this. It'd be interesting to understand more where they're coming from, being bullied by the filly with an imaginary friend, and whether they'll reach out to her or not. As for Filthy Rich, I'm guessing he hires the most expensive therapist money can buy.

I'll be looking forward to the next chapter. :twilightsmile:

4668670
He has to blame something, needs something to focus his anger on.

He's not blaming Cheerilee because he thinks she's responsible, necessarily. He's blaming her because it's convenient to do so.

I have to wonder what exactly Silver Spoon is. I feel for Diamond Tiara, Cheerilee, and Filthy Rich whatever the answer is though.

4669042 i think she is a feeling given thought like one story i read was about pinkie pie actually being an imaginary friend created by twilight as surprise given life at the moment she hatched spikes egg and nightmare moon was lunas fear of celestia turning evil given life but i cant remember the name of it and im currently looking for it

YES! You continued it!

So, Silver Spoon is a manifestation of all of Diamond Tiara's bad qualities. That's sad. I hope she can get past this.

Can't wait for the next chapter.
I think the only way for Diamond Tiara to get better is to talk to the CMC and apologize.
