This story is a sequel to Life Is A Rollercoaster: An Anon-A-Miss Story


To make up for the Anon-A-Miss incident, Canterlot High's student body plan a surprise party for Sunset's 16th birthday.

While going over the guest list, the Rainbooms ask a question they never thought to ask: where is Sunset's family? They soon wonder why Sunset has never talked about them. From what little they can gleam from Sunset's bitter remarks, they determine that she estranged from her widowed mother in Equestria. They and Princess Twilight decide that helping Sunset and her mom reconcile would be the best present ever.

But in their well-meaning attempt to help Sunset heal from the scars of her past, the Rainbooms have unwittingly opened an old wound instead.

When Sunset finds herself in a difficult person, the task of helping her may end up being in the hands of the least likely person. Someone who's friend was severely damaged by Sunset's misdeeds. Someone who must grapple with the meaning of forgiveness, loyalty, and compassion.


What Happened to Sunset's Family is the fifth story of Sunset's Steps, the fanfic series detailing Sunset's growth from a forlorn loner to the heroic defender of Canterlot High.

The story is set roughly two weeks before the Friendship Games.

Sunset Shimmer is an average teenager living in the town of Whinneypeg with her widower father, Bright Horizons.

She's an introvert who is happy with getting Bs and the simple things, like vanilla ice cream and crossword puzzles.

Suddenly, she finds herself as the center of attention. People keep mistaking her for some up and coming popstar named...

Sunset Shimmer?!

After some investigation, Sunset and her father learn about this girl from Canterlot who has not only taken her name, but somehow taken her clothes, her face, her very identity.

But even after learning this is not a case of identity theft, Sunset wonders what she's worth when this person seems better at, well, being her.

Will she succumb to existential despair? Or will someone who was in her situation tell her she can still be her own girl.


This is a rewrite of "Sunset Shimmer Discovers She's A Pop Star."

This story is a sequel to Working Girl Sunny


Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle confess to being Anon-A-Miss, but only after Sunset runs out of the school in tears. The Rainbooms are thoroughly ashamed for having accused Sunset so easily of breaking their trust, and send texts to Sunset pleading for forgiveness.

Sunset seriously questions whether she can ever forgive her friends for being so quick to accuse her of leaking their secrets, let alone continue to stay at Canterlot High.

However, an unlikely figure will not only provide Sunset the answer, but also force Sunset to confront several harsh truths: that the people closest to you aren't saints, and redemption doesn't mean what she thinks it means, and that life can't always go the way you want it.


Life is A Rollercoaster is the fourth story of Sunset's Steps, the saga of Sunset's reform and growth into the brave hero we know and love.

This story is a sequel to Live By The Sword...


For the residents of Canterlot, January 15 marks the beginning of a week of celebration. On this day, 237 years ago, the United Provinces declared itself independent from the Trottingham Empire. On this day, a nation devoted to the principles of liberty, equality, and tolerance was established.

The youth of Canterlot welcome their liberation... from the shackles of public education during Freedom Week. The week preceding it is a period of anticipation and excitement.

For Sunset Shimmer, however, the search for tolerance remains elusive. Two months after it was revealed that she had a girl sent to juvie, Sunset remains blacklisted from most of her peers, minus her friends and her boyfriend. With her second round of community service over, she finds herself in a new predicament: free time and no one to share it with.

Applejack, the ever-loyal friend, helps Sunset get a job at a sushi restaurant to pass the time. But in this job, she'll not only learn about responsibility and how hard it is to earn an honest buck, but other lessons from her co-workers: how even in a land of freedom, others must work twice as hard to have half the thing she has. She'll learn how even in a land of liberty, others must fight tooth and nail for even the most basic decency.

She'll be forced to discuss the age old question: what is freedom.


Working Girl Sunny is the third story of Sunset's Steps, the saga of Sunset's reform and growth into the brave hero we know and love. Reading the last two stories is helpful to understanding the background of this one.

Now with a TVTropes page courtesy of CMR Rosa who helped write the tropes, while his friends created the TVTropes page.


After the Battle of the Bands, things have been going good for the Rainbooms. Sunset Shimmer herself has finally gained the acceptance of her classmates. But she feels like she is missing something in her life.

Their peace, however, becomes short-lived. During a basketball game with Dimmsdale High, they witness some buck-toothed boy utilizing powerful magic.

Fearing the boy has gotten his hands on some dangerous Equestrian artifact, one of the Rainbooms steps up to babysit the boy and keep on an eye on him until Princess Twilight can come up with a solution.

However, the kid's secrets go much deeper then that. And, to their misfortune, the Rainbooms aren't the only ones interested in the power he holds...


Timmy Turner has the struggles not typical of 10 year old boy. On top of dealing with bullies, evil babysitters, and evil teachers, he must also keep his fairy godparents a secret.

When Vicky goes away for three weeks, Timmy sees this as a time he can relax. Much to his consternation, however, his parents hire a temporary babysitter. While she and her friends seem nice enough, Timmy will learn there is more to them then meets the eye.

And as other forces close in on his fairies, the Dimmsdale Elementary School student must decide who is friend and who is foe.


Equestria Girls: A Fairly Odd Friendship is an Equestria Girls/Fairly Oddparents fusion fic.

This story is a sequel to Mommy's Little Empress


Scythia The Dark has done it.

She has achieved what few other ponies have.

She has brought the pathetic princess to her knees.

She has taken away her control over the sun and moon.

She ruled over Equestria with an iron hoof.

She has more power than any other creature on the planet.

There is only one thing left to do: to smite the pathetic Princess.

However, she has granted the white alicorn one last request. What the Princess wants is surprising: the right to ask her one last question.

Scythia allows this. Words are, after all, meaningless, right?

Right?


This will be the backstory to my favorite OC, Sweet Roll. This will be set seven years before the beginning of season 1, between Sunset's departure and Twilight becoming Celestia's student.

Be advised, this story will not be as humorous as my previous stories surrounding Sweet Roll. This story will feature some dark themes like abuse, depression, revenge, and bitterness.
