Chapter 1: the reaping

Pitter Patter. Pitter Patter. The sound of raindrops hammered against my window, like a woodpecker pecking a tree to make its den. I woke up to see the bright morning sun sift through my blinds. I shielded my eyes from the sun. After all, my name is Sunset Shimmer. I hate early mornings and I am 16 years old. I looked to my right. In the next bed was my best friend Twilight Sparkle. She's like a sister to me. I yawned and stretched, as I rifled through my wardrobe. Today is a big day, it's the reaping, where 5 kids are chosen to take part in a dangerous game, the survival games. I decided to wear a simple ruby coloured dress that Rarity(my best friend) made for me. Twilight yawned, rubbing her violet eyes. I smiled, as I held up a purple dress that was from the fall formal when Princess Twilight was around. Twilight gently took it from me and got changed. We then walked out together to the square where Pinkie Pie barrelled up to me. We stood near the front, waiting.

Principal Celestia pulled out a name. Twilight Sparkle. I gasped. "NO!" I cried. "No, please! Please, I volenteer!" I shouted. I couldn't risk losing my best friend. And anyway. I can fight. I gave Twilight a quick hug before heading for the stage. Then the next name was pulled out. Rainbow Dash. That no good liar. The only reason we were friends because I was friends with AJ. Then it was Applejack, Rainbow Dash's best friend and the Queen of Honesty. Rarity was next. I was surprised. I didn't expect Rarity to make it. Then Flash Sentry. My Ex. We never spoke since the disastrous events in the fall.
