Sunset Shimmer, age 45, has 2 14(nearly 15) year old twins. She tells them a range of stories: Her story, A descendants story and Harry Potter's story and many more. Some copied from my fanfic, one shots.

PROLOGUE: Sunset's story, part 1

The summer holidays at Canterlot High were opening up and today was the last day of the year for the students at Canterlot Middle School and at Canterlot High. Children were screaming inside classrooms and even the teachers were lenient, that is, all except one teacher, the sports teacher, Miss Rainbow Dash, the head of sports across Canterlot High and Crystal Prep. Rainbow knew from experience that the teachers in her day were too lenient on her. She made sure her classes worked hard. Once upon a time, Rainbow Dash refused to work. Times had changed and Rainbow had a new work ethic.

Anyway, the bell rang, and kids were pouring out of the school gates like running water. Kids were screaming, texting friends and even going on Mystable, the popular website to chat on.

Sunset Shimmer laughed with Twilight Sparkle as they left the school gates, locking them up for the summer. Sunset grinned, before heading off to her car, a red-gold car, where her 2 kids were waiting for her already.

"Sorry, I'm late," said Sunset. "Had to finish some paperwork."

Sunset drove into Lower Canterlot, where a simple red bricked house stood at the end of the road. Sunset pulled up into the drive, next to her husband's blue porshe and parked. She then hopped out of the car and opened the door to the house.

"Hi dad!" cried Dawn. "We're home!"

"Dad?" asked Dawn. "Dad!"

Sunset laid a hand on Dawn's shoulder. "He's probably recording or still working," she said.

Sunset walked into the kitchen, the sound of her mini high-heels clicking on the marble floor. "Hey, honey." said Flash, looking up from his laptop.

"Hey," replied Sunset. "How's it going?"

"Fine." said Flash. "How's Twilight?"

"Twi?" asked Sunset. "She's alright. I mean, she's split up with Timber. She's now dating Micro Chips."

"I remember him," said Flash. "He was the one who got the superlative of getting cold fusion? Sorry. I know you don't like me mentioning that."

"No, no." said Sunset lightly. "It's okay, you know."

"So, what do you think?" asked Flash. "I'm ordering pizza tonight, so what do you want?"

"The usual," said Sunset. "Margherita please."

The family were gathered around the table, eating pizza.

"Mom." said Dusk. "Can you tell us a story?"

"Please?" begged Dawn, with puppy eyes.

"Fine." said Sunset, looking in Flash's direction. "It might be wise to tell them our story before we tell any other friendship stories. Here goes."


Princess Twilight trotted into the Crystal empire with her friends, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Rainbow Dash, and her helpful assistant, Spike.

The 7 friends were chatting, as they walked up to the 3 great princesses, Princess Cadance, the Princess of love, Princess Luna, the princess of the night and Princess Celestia, the princess of the day. As the youngest princess, Cadance, hugged Twilight, Celestia directed them to their rooms. But little did they know they were in for a brand new adventure...

A thief crept upon the young purple princess, whisking her crown. Twilight woke up, and seeing the sparkle of her crown, she cried, "STOP, THIEF! SHE'S GOT MY CROWN!" The cloaked figure galloped, as they fought. The cloak ended up on Twilight's head, revealing an amber unicorn with a red-gold mane and tail. The 2 mares ran right into the mirror room, where the crown disappered through it. The unicorn teleported to the base of the mirror. Her departing words were, "Sorry, it had to be this way, Princess." the unicorn sneered, before jumping into the mirror.


"Well?" asked Dawn. "What happened? Who was that unicorn? Where did they go?"

"That unicorn was me," confessed Sunset. "I took the crown into this world and Twilight ran after me, with Spike. They saw me bully this world's Fluttershy at CHS and together, the humane 5 and Princess Twilight basically tried to fight back. I always fought back and at some point, I turned into a she-demon. Twilight and her new friends defeated me, see, and helped me to become a better person."

"Is that it?" asked Dusk.

"Oh no." said Flash. "There's more."

"More?!" yelped Dawn.

"Yep," said Sunset. "A hell lot more to go."

"Tomorrow," said Flash. "When the Rainbooms come over to record their new song."

"Hey!" cried Rainbow, the last of the members to enter. "How's everyone!"

"Rainbow! You only saw me yesterday!" cried Sunset, laughing. "You're late. We're supposed to be recording the full version of all good. Remember?"

"Oh, Yes." said Rainbow Dash. "Let's get started!"

After they had recorded, the Rainbooms sat down in front of the sofa. "Rainbow, I kind of promised the kids that you'd tell them the Battle of the bands. Will you?" asked Sunset.

"I will." said Rainbow Dash.

"So the next part of the story," I said, "Is the Battle of the Bands. Sunset Shimmer was starting to believe in friendship…"

Kids gathered in the gym, decorating posters for the latest event, the Musical Showcase. In one corner were 5 girls, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and me. Everyone was laughing and talking. But when Sunset Shimmer walked into the room, it was like a cloud covering the sunny sky. Sunset Shimmer hung her head in shame, as she walked past the girls. She knelt down next to the CMC. "Want some help?" she asked as sweetly as she could.

The 3 girls exchanged looks, as if, "Is she serious?"

"Uh, no thanks," said Applebloom coolly. "We're good."

Sunset's stomach sank like a stone. "Oh. Okay." she whispered.

"OVER HERE, SUNSET SHIMMER!" yelled Pinkie Pie.

Sunset's eyes lit up. Smiling, she skipped over to where we were gathered.

Pinkie Pie bombarded Sunset with hugs. "Pinkie! Pinkie!" she giggled. "You're squishing me!"

I was happy that Sunset was having some fun. Then Principal Celestia and Vice-Principal Luna walked in, to make some announcements. Kids were delighted! Some did air guitar, others grinned. But then she opened her mouth. We made shushing noises, to tell them that it would embarrass Sunset. Instead she said, "What happened in fall."

Still, everyone glared at Sunset. Poor thing. We gathered our things and hurried to the band room.

"I'm never gonna live the fall formal down," moaned Sunset Shimmer.

"You were pretty bad," agreed Fluttershy.

Rarity wrapped a comforting arm around her. "Still, we've forgiven you for your past… uh… misdeeds."

Sunset sunk into a chair. "Thanks, Rarity." she whispered.

"Hey, Sunset?" asked Pinkie. "You okay? You wanna talk?"

"No thanks," she said. "I'm good."

We tuned our instruments and started to play Better than ever.

"1, 2, 3!" yelled Pinkie Pie.

[The Rainbooms]

There was a time we were apart

But that's behind us now

See how we've made a brand new start

And the future's lookin' up, ah-oh, ah-oh

And when you walk these halls

You feel it everywhere

Yeah, we're the Wondercolts forever, ah-oh, yeah!

We are all together

(Ah, ah, oh-oh-oh-oh)

Now it's better than ever

(Ah, ah, oh-oh-oh-oh)

You can feel it, we are back (You... can... feel... it...)

And I'm so glad that we're better

Better than ever

Whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

Oh yeah, we're better than ever

Whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

[Rainbow Dash]

There was a time we couldn't see

Past the differences


That separated you and me

And it left us on our own

[Pinkie Pie]

But now you walk these halls

And friends are everywhere

[The Rainbooms]

Yeah, we're the Wondercolts forever, ah-oh, yeah!

We are all together

(Ah, ah, oh-oh-oh-oh)

Now it's better than ever

(Ah, ah, oh-oh-oh-oh)

Now that we are back on track (Now... that... we... are...)

Yes, I'm so glad that we're better

Better than ever

Whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

Oh yeah, we're better than ever

Whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

Oh yeah, we're better than ever

Whoa-oh, oh-whoa-oh

Oh yeah, we're better than ever!

Sunset Shimmer clapped. She had mixed feelings. She wanted to be in the band, but then, what would she do?

In the cafeteria, 3 strange girls sang some weird song. They even got to Principal Celestia and Vice-Principal Luna!

"Looks like we're on our own," said Sunset.

Our only solution was to write in Sunset's old journal to Equestria. We were so lucky Princess Twilight got to us in about 1 hour. The first round was coming up. Where was Rarity? We did well. But the second round, well, let me sing for you.

[The Rainbooms]

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

[Rainbow Dash]

Awesome as I wanna be

[The Rainbooms]

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

[Rainbow Dash]

Awesome as I wanna be

First you see me riding on a sonic boom

Got my guitar shreddin' up my latest tune

There is nothin' you can do to beat me

I'm so good that you can't defeat me

[Rainbow Dash and the Rainbooms]

Yeah, I'm awesome, take caution

Watch out for me, I'm awesome as I wanna be

(Yeah!) I'm awesome, take caution

Watch out for me, I'm awesome as I wanna be

[The Rainbooms]

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!/i]

[Rainbow Dash]

Step aside now, you're just gettin' in my way

I got sick chops you could never hope to play

When it comes to makin' music, I'm the ruler

You wish you could be twenty percent cooler

[Rainbow Dash and the Rainbooms]

Yeah, I'm awesome, take caution

Watch out for me, I'm awesome as I wanna be

(Yeah!) I'm awesome, take caution

Watch out for me, I'm awesome as I wanna be!

But then Sunset Shimmer leapt on and ruined my performance. Just because of a pony up?!

I felt like slapping her across the face. I nearly did, when Applejack laid a cool hand on my shoulder. I simmered down. Trixie sauntered up to us.

"Way to go, Raingoons! I especially liked the part when Sunset Shimmer ruined Rainbow Dash's guitar solo in a fit of jealous rage!"

Sunset was as red as an angry bull, as red as the she-demon she turned into last fall. "It wasn't a fit of jealous rage!" she exploded, her fists balled, as red as the she-demon she turned into last autumn.

"If you say so," said Trixie.

Sunset leaned against the wall and put her head in her hands. Fluttershy sat next to her.

Sunset looked up. "I-I'm sorry Fluttershy. I ruined it, didn't I?"

"You didn't," said Applejack. "Rainbow Dash was bein' a selfish idiot, WEREN'T ya?"

"I wasn't!" I protested.

"You were," said Fluttershy. "You wanted to be the star. My God, Dashie, you sound like Trixie!"

After escaping from under the stage, we ran with Spike and Vinyl Scratch to the top of the hill where we played Fluttershy's special song. Sunset sang and she became a member of the band.

Present day

"And," I said, "That's the battle of the bands."

"Sunset, you wanna go ahead with Anon-a-miss? Or do you want to tell us about the games?"

"The Games," said Sunset.

Sunset pov

"Basically, Rainbow called us, for a guitar string and we weren't happy." I said. "Twilight, Sci-Twi, our Twilight, she started monitoring the portal."


Students filed into the gym, as Principal Celestia stood up in front to talk. Rainbow Dash swiped the microphone from Principal Celestia and started talking. As she started singing, the loyalty to the school came out and she started to pony up. Ears, Tails, Manes, wings. You name it. Rainbow finished on a finale of catching the leader of the school band's baton in the air and then landing. The girls crowded around Rainbow Dash, chatting, praising her how awesome her performance, all except one. Me. I didn't crowd around her. I was tasked with the mission to get to the bottom of our magical developement.

The Games started, and I was against Twilight in the final round. Of course, we thought Twilight was behind the portal stealing and the stealing of our magic. But the real big thing was the tricross. AJ's magic got sucked out first and then Rainbow's. I think I might of scared Twilight at the time, which caused her to make a grave mistake.

The Crystal Prep students made Twilight release the magic. Then it happened. "Help me!" screamed Twilight, as she rose higher, into a white void.

I watched the helpless girl turn into a she-demon like I did not long ago. I knew what it was like, the dark magic kind of ate at you, as it turned your soul to its darkest. When the void had disappeared, a she-demon appeared. She cackled.

I saw my classmates, helpless against Midnight Sparkle, as she created rips in our world, trying to destroy it.

Then that was when I decided I had enough.

"Twilight!" I shouted. "You can't do this!"

Midnight Sparkle turned to face me, the small, scrawny, Sunset Shimmer. I was powerless against her, but I could still tell her.

I fell.

I heard Rainbow Dash and Rarity struggling, then the Crystal Preppers, so suddenly, just went and helped us! The magic of friendship really must have been spreading.

"This isn't the way!" I shouted. "I know you feel powerful right now, like you can have everything you want! I've been where you are, I've made the same mistake you're making! I put on a crown and, just like you, I was overwhelmed by the magic it contained! I thought it could get me everything I wanted!"

Midnight snickered. "Oh, you're wrong. Unlike you, I CAN get everything I want!"

I knew Twilight was making a big mistake. "No, you can't," I continued. I stood my ground, but I was quaking on the inside. I held up her device. "Even with all that magic and power, you'll still be alone! True magic comes from Honesty!" Applejack lit up. "Loyalty!" Rainbow Dash lit up."Laughter!" Pinkie Pie lit up."Generosity!" Rarity lit up."Kindness!" I concluded, as Fluttershy lit up. The magic from the pendant lifted me into the air. "I understand you, Twilight, and I want to show you the most important magic of all..."

I was under going a transformation, My wings, unlike last times, were golden, I had a red mask spread across my cyan eyes and the dress, white and gold, with my sun-flamed cutie mark engraved on the puffed sleeves. I rose in the air, facing the 2 schools, "The magic of friendship!" I concluded.

Then there was silence, as my five friends watched me in awe.

I sealed the rifts that Midnight created, then I was locked into a fierce duel. I was losing badly. Until, Spike, Fluttershy running after him, sat at the edge of a rift.

"Twilight!" he begged.

"Spike?" asked Twilight, her eyes turning purple for a brief moment.

That was enough. I used my last bolt of magic against her, as we were sucked into a white void.

We floated for a second. I reached out, with kindness, with empathy. "Take my hand, Twilight. Let me show you there's another way... just like someone once did for me."

I smiled, gently wiping a tear from her face. Twilight willingly took my hand, and hand in hand, we landed in the courtyard of CHS.

Spike bounded up with her glasses. Twilight giggled. Until she ruined it all.

"Principal Celestia, on behalf of Crystal Prep, I demand that you forfeit the Friendship Games! Clearly, CHS has had unfair advantage for quite some time! And it's certainly obvious that your students have been using magic for their own benefit!" cried Principal Cinch angrily

"I'd like to think saving the world benefits us all," my adoptive mom said, Principal Celestia. She caught my eye. I smiled shyly, as I turned away.

I kind of zoned out after that, so I didn't really catch anything but I did see Principal Cinch storm off.

And I guess, my mom, being the fairest Principal you'll ever know, declared us all winners. Oh my gosh. I was pleased.


"Okay." said June, Rainbow Dash's daughter. "What next?"

"Well, actually, it's camp everfree," said Rainbow Dash. "More like Sunset and Flash's love story part a."
