Autumn term at Canterlot High was just beginning. Rebecca, Tom and Vincent were preparing for school. Rebecca, aged 14, would be starting Canterlot High for the first time. Her 2 older brothers, Vincent and Tom, aged 18, were in their final year at Canterlot High. Sunset was proud of her 3 kids, Tom had reached grade 8 acoustic guitar.

Flash came down for breakfast. "See you, honey." he said, pecking a kiss on his wife's cheek, before rushing off to meet his band members.

"Bye dad!" called out Rebecca.

Someone's phone pinged. "MINE!" called Tom. "New tictok stuff."

Rebecca rolled her eyes. "Mom, why is everyone so obsessed with Tictok?"

"Might be our fault," said Sunset. "You have... 5 more minutes to eat. Then brush your teeth. Be at the door by... 7 o'clock."

Sunset's phone pinged.

AJ: Rainbooms meeting on Friday.

AJ: Are ya copying me?

Me: All of you, SHUT UP!

Sunset laughed awkwardly.

"KIDS! Where are those dang kids?"

"Hi, mom!" cried Tom. "Ready."

Sunset held the door for her children. "Come on."


"Hey, Ash," said Rebecca, at school. "First day! Come on, assembly!"

Ashleigh grinned. "Sure, let's go!"


Twilight and Sunset walked onto the podium. "Hi, everyone!" cried Sunset. "Welcome back for another fantabulous year at Canterlot High!

Staff, our Christmas play will be Anon-a-miss, by request of my brother's wife, Fluttershy. If you could meet Twilight and I at my house at 5:30 pm this Friday , then you can audition."

Twilight nodded. "Students, if you'd like to be manager, please could you let Miss Cheerilee know by tomorrow, by 3:00 pm. Thank you. Now, there's the bell. I'm sure you'd want to get to your lessons."

"Sunny!" called out Rainbow Dash. "Wait, can I talk to you?"

"Sure," said Sunset.

"Sun," said Rainbow Dash. "Why didn't you tell the students it was our band?"

"I... I was going to tell them during the formal," said Sunset. "Don't you have to teach the Seniors sport?"

"Yeah," said Rainbow Dash. "Bye!"
