This story is a sequel to Mister Cook Goes to Canterlot


A Twin Canterlots story •Cook, that’s gotta be the fanciest—and stuffiest—restaurant in the whole area!” Sunset looked, and sounded, aghast. “What am I gonna wear? I don’t have anything that dressy.”
  I let my eyebrows rise. “This from one of the girls who magic up spiffy new ensembles every few weeks?”
  By rights her glare should have reduced me to cinders. “That’s different and you know it. This isn’t even like a Rainbooms gig, where I can get away with something outrageous. Whatever it is must be pretty serious or you wouldn’t be so insistent—and evasive; don’t think I haven’t noticed.”
  When I limited my response to a shrug, she sighed in resignation. “Fine. I’ll talk to Rarity and see what we can come up with on my pitiful budget.”

This story is a sequel to Diplomatic Overtures


A Twin Canterlots story • Sunset paused on the high balcony of Princess Twilight’s empty tower, catching her breath after all those stairs. Everypony was away setting up the Friendship Festival; the journal had been buzzing almost constantly with Twilight’s hastily scribbled one-line updates, ecstatic and anxious—until a couple of hours ago. The longer the sudden silence lasted, the more concerned Sunset became, until she hopped through the portal to see what was up. Her alicorn glowed as she fiddled Twi’s telescope into position for a look at the distant city clinging to the mountainside.

Canterlot was burning.
