I've been a brony since October 2013, and it's only now that I have finally decided to take action and find my true place among the herd.


This story is a sequel to The Legend of Sunset Shimmer: Majora's Mask

It has been some time since Sunset Shimmer went on a journey to the world of 'The Legend of Zelda' but now she has been sent to the mysterious Koholint Island. It is an island in the middle of nowhere that houses a dark secret. Sunset cannot leave until she awakens the Wind Fish, but can she awaken the dreamer and if so, will she want to once she learns the truth of what the island really is?

Even with Princess Twilight Sparkle to guide her along, Koholint Island may seem unusual, but what lurks below the surface is the stuff of nightmares.


It's been some time since my last fanfiction around here. I hope that I've still got it. Anyway, this is the next entry in this series of mine if it should be called that. Many were expecting Twilight Princess, but that is a huge undertaking in and of itself, and since it's been so long since my last story, I wanted to go with something shorter. Don't expect this story to be an epic readthrough in terms of word count as I'm not trying to set a record here.

As always, each chapter will let you know which MLP/EQG character is portraying which Link's Awakening character.

Chapters (35)

Rainbow Dash had become obsessed with a classic fantasy game show from decades ago, and just wouldn't stop talking about it. Pinkie Pie liked it because of how fun it looked, and Twilight was interested in it from a technical stand point. Only Sunset had no reservations about a show that tried to emulate a fantasy setting. No matter how much Rainbow told her about this game, "Knightmare", she just wasn't interested. Little did any of them know that this game was much more than appearances suggested.

A chance encounter with an old oak door and Rainbow's enthusiasm lead the four into an old castle, one whose magic was unfamiliar to Sunset. Within the dark confines of this ancient fortress stands an ante chamber, home to Treguard, the castle's master, and of a dungeon that exists below. For years, he has fought a never-ending battle against the Opposition, but now he has found an ace up his sleeve in the form of the four girls who suddenly walked in on him.

Rainbow is aghast with excitement, and Sunset wished they could go back home. Treguard offers them a unique position: Become the latest team to brave the dungeon and retrieve a quest object and defeat the Opposition headed by Lord Fear. Much to Sunset's horror, she had been chosen to become the dungeoneer, and must now brave the tricks and traps of this fantasy game whilst being guided by her friends.

Despite how real it all looked, it was just an old fantasy game from long ago... wasn't it?

This is an idea that I've had in my mind for a couple of years now, but I never got around to doing it out of fear that I wouldn't be good at writing MLP fanfiction. The show "Knightmare" was a children's fantasy game show created in the U.K that ran from 1987 to 1994. Teams of kids aged between eight to sixteen would attempt to conquer the fantasy dungeon that existed beneath Knightmare Castle. One of the four acted as the dungeoneer while the other three acted as advisors. It was a difficult game since only eight of the sixty-nine teams who competed across the eight series succeeded.

Chapters (6)

Note 1: This story is told from Sunset Shimmer's perspective.

When does a game become more than that? What if it becomes a game where you are in a race against time? What if you were trapped within the darkness, and you have to struggle to find a way to return to the light? When Pinkie Pie hosts a sleepover where all of her friends, they discover that she has found a board game unlike any they have seen before, and insists the group play it.

This game is interactive... where twists and turns abound... it is a video board game where one must face their greatest fear...

Note 2: This story involves the Mane Seven playing a board game known as Atmosfear, sometimes referred to as Nightmare in other regions. Rather than go into the history of the game, I'll provide two links. One is the article about this game on Wikipedia, and the other is a YouTube of the actual video that is used to play.

Chapters (5)

My name is Sunset Shimmer, and I wanted to speak to my newest friend, the human version of Princess Twilight Sparkle, about something which I've been keeping a closely guarded secret. Because of what happened at the climax of the Friendship Games, my heart is telling me to reveal what I've kept from everyone I know. Why choose her? Because she and I are really close... in more ways than one.

While I've used the magic journal to speak with Princess Twilight, there is the other journal... the non-magical one which I've been using since as far back as I can remember. You may think that what I wrote in this journal isn't anything serious, but when it contains secrets... personal secrets about my life from past to present...secret feelings about my friends... it becomes a completely different beast altogether.

I know Twilight will be there to help just like how I helped her, but will our friendship... all of my friendships be destroyed upon revealing these secrets to her?

Note: This story takes place after Friendship Games even though all three movies will be present in one form or another. Also, the Equestria Girls comics will be present as well with some having more scope than others. There is also some mild sexual moments between Sunset and Twilight. Edit: Added in the comics to the note.

Edit: Starting from Chapter 8 and onwards, this story now has an editor: icecreammac

Edit2: Replaced the 'human' category with the 'Equestria Girls' category.

Edit3: Second Place in the 2015 National Pony Novel Writing Month.

Chapters (76)

This story is a sequel to The Legend of Sunset Shimmer: Ocarina of Time

September 20, 2017: This story got past 1,000,000 words. Never have I written anything this long before but I wanted to acknowledge such a thing given that it doesn't happen very often around here.

This story has been given a new description as of October 3, 2016. Also, please check the numerical notations afterwards to understand some concerns.

Sunset Shimmer believed that it was all over. Her ordeal in the land of Hyrule was still fresh on her mind, and the Mark of the Triforce reminded her that everything was real. No one else recalled what happened and think she has lost her mind, yet she knew better. A nightmare had been plaguing her since then, one that her friends couldn't help her overcome. How could they when they didn't believe her?

In her nightmare... a world is on the verge of ruin. What is the meaning behind this nightmare? Sunset isn't sure but feels that her ordeal wasn't over yet. Two weeks after Her Highness came through the portal, Canterlot High and Crystal Prep celebrate after what happened during the Friendship Games. Despite the latter not in the best of spirits, things were going fine until an old enemy emerges, an enemy whom Sunset wished she could forget.

Ganondorf, the Demon King transforms the world that Sunset calls home and everyone in it into the world of Termina, the very land from her nightmare, a parallel world to Hyrule. Once again, Sunset must endure personal torment as she struggles against something she knew would happen. She has only three days to prevent this new world from being destroyed, yet she doesn't have to go through the experience alone. Her friend and mentor, Princess Twilight Sparkle, is by her side, trapped in the same nightmare as her student. Many friends from their worlds are in Termina under new identities, and the Demon King lurks in the shadows, waiting for the time to test Sunset once again.

1. Due to the release of Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree, I might as well mention this. Characters, events, magic, and so on will not be present in this story. This was started long before the movie was first announced, and will remain that way. However, bonus chapters are exempt from this.

2. The Prologue through to Chapter 13 are in my old writing style and won't be changed. From Chapter 14 and onwards, my new style will be featured.

3. The Prologue has been retconned slightly. I now have taken the events of Friendship Games and implemented them into the story. As such, this story takes places two weeks after Princess Twilight came through the mirror, but before Sci-Twi's slumber party and Camp Everfree.

Chapters (79)

With the events of Rainbow Rocks behind her, Sunset Shimmer was simply enjoying a night indoors with her friends, but the magical energies of the human world which clashed in the movie has caused something unexpected to happen. Now Sunset has found herself in a world much different than her own, and the people of this world look like her human world friends and foes, yet this is the land of Hyrule.
