  1. >Another day, another morning at CHS.
  2. >And where there was another morning you were certain to find the one and only, Sunset Shimmer.
  3. >Greeting the day as a new opportunity to do something right.
  4. >Which was why she was walking with her dear friends, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash, to their next class.
  5. >Talking about important school related things
  6. >"So, Soarin tells him to stick it where.the sun don't shine." Dash laughed as she told the story.
  7. >However Applejack rolled her eyes harder than a dung beetle during chili season..
  8. "Rainbow, we know what happened"
  9. "Me an' Sunset were kinda there" her eyebrow raised as Dash just continued to laugh to herself.
  10. >"But you should have seen Spitfire tear him a new asshole afterwards." she wiped a tear away from her eye.
  11. >Clearly enjoying the suffering of others.
  12. >Applejack lightly smacked the top of her head.
  13. >As Sunset lightly shook her head.
  14. >How they stayed friends no one really knows.
  15. >Dash's laughter suddenly came to a halt.
  16. >Sunset saw Rainbow's eyes fixate towards something at the end of the hall.
  17. >"Speaking of trainwrecks, here comes your sperg now Sunset" a hint of malice coated her words as Sunset's eyes widened just a little bit.
  18. >Wild, messy hair like the color of fallen leaves.
  19. >The ugliest, greenest, and way too biggest sweater.
  20. >Normal gray sweatpants marked with drying sweat stains.
  21. >And to make the outfit complete, the beaming smile that could rival a lion.
  22. >Sunset instantly knew who it was as soon as she saw that smile.
  23. >The girl's sweatered sleeve waved frantically at the gaggle of girls.
  24. >Then without blinking she made off in a mad dash towards them.
  25. >Sleeve still waving in the breeze.
  26. "Hey-Hey Sunset!" the excited girl's voice echoed down the hall.
  27. "Sunset!"
  28. "It's me, your best friend, your pal, your amigo, your compadr-" In the middle of her sentence she failed to notice her shoelace was untied.
  29. >Her shoulder collided with the tile floor as her arm scraped alongside.
  31. >Sunset rushed to the poor girl's side.
  32. >While Rainbow Dash just laughed.
  33. >"Jeez Autumn, I always tell you to make sure those shoes stay tied for a reason." Sunset scolded the floored girl.
  34. >She looked over her arm and a wicked bad bruise was already starting to form on her shoulder.
  35. >Autumn turned her arm towards her face.
  36. >To inspect the wound.
  37. "Wow that's a pretty shade of purple, what shade do you think that would be?"
  38. "Lavender, lilac, mulberry, wine?" the words continued to pour out of her mouth.
  39. >As if this was just another day for Autumn.
  40. >She poked the bruise with her finger.
  41. "Ow, hurts more like a periwinkle if I'm being honest here" she giggled to herself.
  42. >Already Sunset had been fed her daily quota of Autumn and it wasn't even lunch yet.
  43. >Pinching the bridge of her nose as she let out a sigh, she continued to stare at Autumn.
  44. >And she stared back like an energetic puppy.
  45. >"...You were running at me because...?" she tried to get the conversation back on track.
  46. >The lights finally came on in Autumn's head.
  47. >She gasped like a fish desperately trying to get some air.
  48. "Oh gosh, I'm so sorry Sunset you know how awful of a scatterbrain I am." she put her hand on Sunset's shoulder.
  49. "I get that from my mom...or was it my Aunt?"
  50. "Nono, she was the one who got Nana's knobby knees." she drew her hand back and looked up towards the ceiling.
  51. >Thinking back through her family's medical history.
  52. "All I know is don't give my dad anything spicy because my mom said he got "a plastic bag colon" from my grandpa-"
  53. >"Autumn!" Sunset raised her voice.
  54. >It was the only surefire way to get her back on track.
  55. >The rambling girl in the green sweater softened her expression.
  56. >She shook her head and went back to smiling.
  57. "Right right, sorry Sunset." she began to dig into the pockets of her sweatpants until she found her prize.
  58. >A crumpled piece of green construction paper.
  59. >Quickly she unfurled it and handed it over to s Sunset.
  60. >"Autumn Blaze's Birthday Bash?"
  61. >Sunset's eyes glanced over the piece of paper.
  62. >A crudely drawn house with a smiling Sun hanging over it adorned the middle of the page.
  63. >Stick figures of what one could only assume as other people.
  64. >All on thicker than normal, green construction paper.
  65. >Sunset was surprised it wasn't caked in glitter.
  66. "Yupsi-doodle!" the spirited ball of energy and sweater said.
  67. "Had to get my mom's help to mail out everyone's invite." she rubbed the back of her neck with her sweater sleeve.
  68. "Heh, she didn't trust me not to get my head stuck in the mailbox again." she admitted plain as day.
  69. >The look on Sunset's face said it all.
  70. >As did the look on Autumn's
  71. >But for once she wasn't gushing out all the details of whatever happened.
  72. "It's a...uhh long story-Anyway!" she clapped her sleeves together.
  73. "I figured I'd hand deliver your's since we're the bestest of best super spectacular buddy buddies!" her saccharine attitude was so overabundant it was practically sickening..
  74. >A snicker came from behind Sunset as she swore she heard Dash whisper something.
  75. >"Huh, forgot it was today" was all Sunset said.
  76. >Then she caught a look of Autumn's bright and shining face.
  77. >Her smile extruded pure glee, but her eyes clearly said "Please say you're coming"
  78. >Without missing a beat, Sunset found the courage to speak in spite of an urge not to.
  79. >"Wouldn't miss it for the world though!" she flashed a big, toothy grin Autumn's way.
  80. >You would have thought someone was blowing a pile of dog whistles with how high-pitched Autumn's squee of joy was.
  81. >But for Sunset, this was just another Friday.
  82. >Without warning, Autumn shot from the floor and ran away down the hall.
  83. "ThankyouthankyouSunsetseeyouinabitbyeeeeeeeeeeee!!"
  84. >She nearly tripped once more before rounding another corner, but she managed to steady herself.
  85. >Even with her shoelaces still untied.
  86. >Rainbow burst out laughing.
  87. >"I-I can't Sunset."
  88. >"I-haha-nearly pissed myself when she gave you that invite." Rainbow clutched her sides.
  90. >Sunset looked over the invite again.
  91. >Thankfully she already had a general idea where Autumn's house was.
  92. >"D-Don't tell me you're actually thinking about going Sunset." Dash wiped another chuckle from her mouth.
  93. >That small question did hit a small nerve as Sunset quickly turned her head back towards Dash and Applejack.
  94. >There was a small part of Sunset that didn't want to go.
  95. >But she just chalked it up to peer pressure jitters.
  96. "Why wouldn't I go?" she asked.
  97. >Sunset saw the two girls share a look of confusion
  98. >She should have seen this coming.
  99. >"You do know who that was right?"
  100. "...Yeah?" Sunset shrugged.
  101. >Rainbow mimicked the overzealous hand waving Autumn was just doing a few moments ago.
  102. >"Autty Autumn." she spoke as if that was supposed to mean anything to Sunset.
  103. >"The spaz in the sweater."
  104. >"Autism Blaze"
  105. >"Scatterbrain Sweatstain." another nickname rattled off by Dash.
  106. >Before another word could be uttered though.
  107. >Applejack gently brought her elbow back and let it find a nice home in Dash's stomach.
  108. >Knocking the wind out of her temporarily.
  109. >"Ah think what Rainbow is tryin' to say is that girl does carry a bit of a reputation, Sunset."
  110. >"Ah mean, this is the girl not even Pinkie could get a full party for." she crossed her arms as she glared at Rainbow.
  111. >Who was still holding her sides and coughing.
  112. >"Literally-cough-only her and Pinkie were at her Welcome-versary-cough" she managed to spit out.
  113. >Applejack shrugged.
  114. >There in Sunset's stomach a small glow appeared.
  115. >But when she noticed it Sunset knew her mind was already made up.
  116. "Well, that's not going to happen again." Sunset spoke with fierce conviction.
  117. >"Have fun...Ah guess?" and as soon as Applejack said those words.
  118. >Sunset was off out of the school.
  119. >Ignoring Rainbow Dash's continued coughs of disapproval
  121. >Eyes moved back and forth between the invite and reality.
  122. >Sunset didn't know whether or not Autumn wasn't good at drawing or secretly Picasso.
  123. >The simple, brown, two-story house was actually surprisingly well translated into crayon on the invite.
  124. >But there will be other times to admire artistic skills.
  125. >Sunset slipped the invite into her pocket and approached the front door.
  126. >With a steady hand, she knocked on the wooden frame.
  127. >Almost instantaneously Sunset heard an excited gasp from the other side.
  128. >The door swung open, and there on the other side was Autumn.
  129. >Looking exactly the same as when she was at school.
  130. >Except the sweat stains on her pants were in different spots.
  131. >But her sweater was still as green and as big as ever.
  132. >However, upon Autumn's face, Sunset found the latest edition to her wardrobe.
  133. >A red spiraling scribble moving in a figure-eight motion on her right cheek.
  134. >The image drew itself closer as Sunset realized Autumn had wrapped her up in a bear hug.
  135. "Oh my gosh, Sunset's here yay!" her shrill voice drilled into her eardrums.
  136. >Autumn dropped the hug as Sunset proceeded to unwrinkle her now wrinkled shirt.
  137. "Not that I didn't think you were coming it was just when I saw you I was like "Ah" and you were like "Ah!" and I got really really excited and when I get excited I get kind of huggy."
  138. >"I can tel-" before Sunset could finish her thought Autumn invaded her personal space once again.
  139. "Is that for me? she pointed towards a small, rectangular box Sunset had in her bag.
  140. "Sunset, did you get me a present?" she gasped once more as she hopped in place.
  141. >"Heh, it's just a little something I thought you'd lik-" Sunset held out the gift and as quick as she did Autumn grabbed the present from her.
  142. "Daww, you shouldn't have Sunset."
  143. "You being here is gift enough" Autumn threw her arm around Sunset and put her hand on her shoulder.
  144. >Sunset tried to hide the small smile that appeared on her face.
  146. "...Can I open it though?" Autumn shook the box around in her hand.
  147. >A faint jingle sound could be heard.
  148. >"I don't see why no-" it took only took a simple movement of her hand and the lid was popped off.
  149. >Autumn gasped loudly again.
  150. >Same as the other times before.
  151. >Inside the box was a shiny, sparkling necklace.
  152. >It glinted under the Sun and its silver color was soothing on the eyes.
  153. >To Autumn though it was one of the most beautiful things she had ever seen.
  154. >At least that's what the look on her face felt like to Sunset.
  155. >Resting in the center of the necklace was a little golden dragon ornament.
  156. >Which Autumn quickly realized as her fingers held it gently.
  157. >Her pupils looking like shining stars.
  158. "No way..."
  159. >Sunset was still smiling.
  160. >"It goes well with that dragon folder you have."
  161. >The girl in the sweater pursed her lips as her expression was still in awe.
  162. "...My dragon folder?"
  163. " remember that?"
  164. >Sunset simply shrugged.
  165. >"Not the finer details you probably gave, but yeah, I remember you said something about it."
  166. >If Autumn had a tail, Sunset was certain it'd be wagging like a puppy.
  167. >It's like it was her birthday or something.
  168. >She shook her head as she resumed her lion-like smile.
  169. "Come in, come in, Sunset." Autumn stepped to the side of the door and invited Sunset inside.
  170. "Sorry we kind of got the meat of the party underway before you even got here." Autumn pointed to the swirl on her cheek.
  171. "The guests were getting kind of rowdy so I'd figure we bust out the facepaint."
  172. "It works like a charm. " smiled Autumn smugly.
  173. >"Wait" Sunset spoke as she entered the home.
  174. >"Other people are here?" her hopes rising a little bit.
  175. >Autumn nodded confidently
  176. "Well, just the one person for now, but you gotta watch out she can be a downright party animal." she nudged Sunset's shoulder as they walked into the living room.
  177. "Isn't that right Nana Blaze?" her eyes fell upon a form sitting by an empty table accentuated by red balloons.
  179. >The shape slouched in the chair did not move an inch.
  180. >Snow white hair draped down from her head.
  181. >Age was seeping out of her numerous wrinkles.
  182. >The years had not been kind to her appearance.
  183. >Sunset heard a sound that she thought was the accumulated dust in her mouth being coughed out.
  184. >Autumn giggled in response.
  185. "Oh Nana, you're such a card"
  186. >Nana Blaze made another odd sound like a wooden step creaking.
  187. >A shade of red fell upon Autumn's smiling cheeks.
  188. >Her teeth gritted as her pupis shrank.
  189. "...Haha, that's...probably not something you should talk about with Sunset in the room." she nervously shifted her eyes back and forth between Sunset, the floor, and her Nana.
  190. >"What did she say?" the now very confused Sunset asked.
  191. "...Please don't make me say it" her face flushed deeper as she tried to will herself out of existence.
  192. >"Autumn." she injected her mother-like tone into her words as she crossed her arms.
  193. >With a loud gulp.
  194. "I'll tell you after birthday cake okay?" she leaned towards Sunset.
  195. "Nana has really good ears for being ninety-two."
  196. "But also the cake will be delicious because I made it with love."
  197. >She leaned in to whisper once again.
  198. "And tons and tons of butter" Autumn's infectiously happy grin still plastered on her face.
  199. >What a silly girl.
  200. >"Fine, let me head to the bathroom and we'll get going on some..." Sunset looked around at the living room.
  201. >Trash was scattered about the carpeted floors.
  202. >Empty cans and plastic plates were piled high in a corner.
  203. >Like a monument of garbage.
  204. >"...You have a bathroom right?" Sunset asked with hope in her heart.
  205. "Psssh, of course we do!" she raised her finger down a dimly lit hall.
  206. "Last door on the left."
  207. "Just uhh, watch your step" she spoke cautiously.
  208. "I mean, I know this place like the back of my sweater, but even I don't know what's down there sometimes."
  209. >Sunset's heart dropped down out of her chest and to the floor.
  210. >"...What?""
  212. >The girl in the green sweater couldn't keep a straight face.
  213. >She busted out laughing and snickering like it was the funniest joke in the world.
  214. "I can't believe you bought that!." she wheezed in between laughs.
  215. >Soon she calmed down after wiping away another tear from her eye with her sleeve.
  216. >"...So it's down that hall?"
  217. >Autumn's face softened instantaneously as she saw Sunset's weirded out expression.
  218. "Ye-Yeah, just watch your step for real though."
  219. >Sunset walked to the entrance of the short hallway.
  220. "No Nana!"
  221. "What have I told you about trying to spike the punch?" Sunset heard shouted from behind her.
  222. >With a quick sigh she quickly found her edge once again.
  223. >She just needed a bathroom.
  224. >Carefully she stepped through the still piles of garbage.
  225. >While convincing herself anything that was small, black, and moving was just her eyes playing tricks on her.
  226. >All of a sudden she began to hear a muffled noise to her right.
  227. >Just before the bathroom there was another door.
  228. >This one was shut tight, but as Sunset approached it the muffled sounds grew louder.
  229. >It was yelling.
  230. "Get the fuck off my back you bitch!"
  231. >And just like that, Sunset was frozen in place.
  232. >She couldn't move if she wanted.
  233. >"Keep your goddamn voice down!"
  234. >"You're going to ruin Autumn's party!"
  235. "Pssh, you call that a party?"
  236. >"Don't you fucking sta-"
  237. "Start what?"
  238. "What am I going to start?"
  239. "About the fact that Autumn is almost eighteen and I've had to get her head unstuck from more places than anyone should have to?"
  240. "Or how about how she has no friends huh?"
  241. >"She's a late bloomer that's al-"
  242. "You can't keep defending her!"
  243. "Sooner or later you have to accept facts!"
  244. >"Oh yeah, what are you trying to say you miserable bastard?"
  245. "Our daughter's a fucking loser!
  246. >Words could not express anything Sunset was going through.
  247. >The voice practically rumbled the house with it's ferocity .
  248. >" you like the play they're rehearsing?" Sunset heard a faint sniffle from behind.
