Starlight Glimmer is the one TRUE princess.


Democracy in Equestria · 5:56pm October 1st

Well I have just finished the third Election in Ponyville story. Given that it is a major election year, I figured I'd write another one. Given that the second Election in Ponyville story took place in 2020 but was written in 2018, this one will take place in 2024 in a radically different Ponyville compared to what it is now, even radically different from the Ponyville in "The Last Problem." I do hope you enjoy it.

The Glimmerverse vs. The FiM Universe

When I created the Glimmerverse in the alternate ending of "An Unlikely Love: The Tale of Two Friendship Students" I had plans for it to be different that the regular MLP universe.

Of course naturally it was Starlight Glimmer who was accepted as Celestia's protege rather than Twilight Sparkle. Of course this altered the destiny of Starlight Glimmer dramatically. Naturally the biggest difference is that in The Glimmerverse, Starlight never wound up oppressing "Our Town" nor did she have to engage in a time travel battle given that she fixed that need upon preventing Twilight from getting her cutie mark.

In the Glimmerverse, this never happened because Starlight never created "Our Town."

As we all know, in the FiM universe, Starlight's first friend was taken to Canterlot after he did some fancy trick with books and she was left behind and thus, went down a bad path in life. In The Glimmerverse, it was not long after he left that her adult self's knowledge, energy and the time scroll arrived to her through a portal as a filly, which set her on a better path that would lead to her success.

In the FiM universe, Starlight never made another friend, in The Glimmerverse, Starlight made five very close friends, the Canterlot 5 as some call them. This of course led her down a path different than Twilight did who was rather anti-social in Celestia's school. In the end it led to not just Starlight being sent to Ponyville to prepare for the Summer Sun Celebration, but her friends as well.

Rather than Twilight and five ponies she had just met becoming friends and uniting to use the Elements of Harmony on Nightmare Moon, it was Starlight Glimmer and five ponies she had been friends with for over a decade, creating a more unique group dynamic, one where they ALWAYS acted like friends, unlike the early part of FiM where it seemed like they sometimes didn't.

Like Twilight, Starlight does have her bouts of paranoia, OCD but what makes her special, she has a sixth sense that she always listens to because it is always right.

One special thing about Starlight that Twilight does not have in FiM is her protective nature she has towards a lock box. She is so protective of it because it contains the further altered scroll of Starswirl's that allowed Starlight to hang around and stop Twilight from hatching Spike while allowing the members of the Ponyville 5 (Twilight's friends) to meet.

More differences will be revealed as I continue on both the linear and non-linear stories but be rest assured, The Glimmerverse won't simply be FiM with different ponies but the same personalities.

My Ponyverse and it's Geography

For those of you who read my stories, I'm sure you notice in some that they take place in various parts of Equestria or even take place across the world. While I know how the "official" map of Equestria works, for my stories I altered it to where Equestria is configured differently and added places across the world.

Regarding Equestria: The Equestrian continent closely resembles the nations of Canada, the United States and down to central Mexico. (Terror in Equestria series and Starlight Rising)

Canterlot is located in the general vicinity of where Salt Lake City is while Ponyville is located where Rock Springs, Wyoming is on a map of the U.S. (Throughout ALL of my stories)

The Everfree Forest is located north rather than south of Ponyville as when I watch the show, it just seems like it is to the north as Canterlot appears as though it is to the west of Ponyville in my eyes. (Throughout ALL of my stories)

Appaloosa is located in what is Arizona in our world and Dodge Junction is located in what would be Western Texas in our world. (Used in Starlight Rising)

The southern wastes, home of the changelings is located in what is central Mexico in our world. ( Traveled to in Starlight Rising)

The Crystal Empire is located in what in our world is Eastern Alaska and the western regions of the Yukon. (Highlighted in Terror in Equestria: Rise of the Dark Queen)

Vanhoover of course is located where Vancouver is. (Mentioned in Starlight's Story)

Los Alicornous is located where Los Angeles is yet it has a naval base similar to the one in San Diego (highlighted in Terror in Equestria 6)

Manehattan, Fillydelphia and Neighark are positioned where their human counterpart cities would be located in the U.S. (Highlighted in Starlight's Story)

Maretreal is located in what would be Quebec in our world. (Highlighted in Starlight's Story)

Tampa Neigh is located where Tampa Bay is in our world. (Terror in Equestria 3)

The Equine Empire encompasses all of what is Western Europe, Scandinavia, the former Soviet Union, Mongolia and northern China is in our world.

The cities of Maredrid (Madrid), Braylin (Berlin), Horsinki (Helsinki), St. Pintosburg (St. Petersburg), Marescow (Moscow), and Stalliongrad (Stalingrad) are located where their human counterparts are in our world. (Terror in Equestria 6)

Saddle Arabia includes all of North Africa, the middle east and south Asia stretching all the way to where Pakistan's border with India is in our world. The capitol city is Ridead. (Terror in Equestria 6)

Neigh Zealand is located where New Zealand is yet in The Great War, they play the role that Japan did in World War 2. (Terror in Equestria 6)

The cities of Buckland (Auckland) and Prancington (Wellington) are located in their respective places in New Zealand and also served as the cities that were nuked by Colgate to end the global war, similar to how the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended World War II.

Alicorn Island is roughly the size of Japan but is located more in the area of Guam. (Terror in Equestria, the whole series)

For those of you who read my stories that involve geographic locations of certain places, I hope this helps out in the event you are wondering what areas I model communities after.

The Glimmerverse in Greater Detail

After a lot of thought, writing three stories that fit into a new reality where Starlight plays the role of Twilight and seeing multiple ponies having their own "insert pony here" verse, I have decided that the time has come for a Glimmerverse.

About the Glimmerverse, it all begins in the alternate ending of "An Unlikely Love: The Tale of Two Friendship Students" where Starlight altered Starswirl's spell further and rather than stopping the rainboom, she simply stopped Twilight from hatching Spike, causing her to fail her exam.

With that alteration it is completely different, both adult Twilight and Starlight simply disappear but the time scroll along with all her adult knowledge comes through a portal right above Starlight as a filly in her hometown. She reads the scroll, understands it perfectly, gets her cutie mark and then knows and is able to do all the magic she could as an adult in the prior timeline. It is at that moment that the Glimmerverse is born and the destinies of many are altered.

After her parents discover how powerful her magic is, see her with that time scroll and see her flying, her folks take her to Canterlot to take an exam to get into Celestia's school. She passes, hatches Spike and becomes Celestia's protege.

It is because of that, that Sunburst getting his mark and going off to Canterlot does not bother Starlight for long, which causes her to go down a completely different path. In the Glimmerverse, Sunburst does not play much of a role due to his flunking out of Celestia's school despite Starlight trying to tutor him along with Trixie in "Celestia's Protege." Trixie will be much like she is in the regular MLP universe, up through season 6, an occasional pain in the flank that shows up every now and then.

During her time in Celestia's school, not only does Starlight impress Celestia with both her magical and academic talent, she also makes five very close friends (Moondancer, Minuette, Lemon Hearts, Twinkleshine and Lyra Heartstrings). Unlike Twilight, Starlight is very sociable and does not try to avoid her friends, she instead keeps her grades high all while spending plenty of time with them.

What really causes the Glimmerverse to be different is that Starlight attends Moondancer's party and it winds up being this new Mane Six along with Spike who all go to Ponyville to prepare for the Summer Sun Celebration and naturally, become the element bearers when they defeat Nightmare Moon. The element bearers are as follows:

Starlight: Magic
Moondancer: Loyalty
Minuette: Laughter
Lemon Hearts: Honesty
Lyra: Generosity
Twinkleshine: Kindness

Those become apparent in "Saving the Sun: Part 2" in "Starlight Glimmer and Friends: Adventures in Equestria (Season 1)"

After they defeat Nightmare Moon, these six friends and schoolmates are the ones who move to Ponyville. Now members of the Ponyville 5 as they shall be referred to in the Glimmerverse do have a bit of a role in the Glimmerverse and do have their talents since it was only Twilight's accomplishment that Starlight stopped. The primary one will be Applejack since it is discovered that Lemon Hearts is actually an Apple sibling who was put up for adoption for reasons that are discussed in "Closer than She Thinks" in "Starlight Glimmer and Friends."

In the future Twilight will eventually have a role as an antagonist but events such as Shining Armor and Cadence's wedding will not play any role in the Glimmerverse because unlike Twilight knowing Cadence and easily being able to tell that Cadence wasn't herself, Starlight wouldn't have that luxury. They will be the royal couple of the Crystal Empire but they will just be another royal pair, not any sort of family in the Glimmerverse.

Now very similar threats that threaten Equestria in the current ponyverse will exist in the Glimmerverse but these element bearers will not exactly handle them the same way, their ways will involve more magic given they are all unicorns.

I hope as I continue to build on this, which is going to become my primary goal now, I do hope you will enjoy it.
