I’m about to cry oh my god why am I so unlucky I mean what did I actually do to deserve this?
So, I had this whole thing written out. Entirely written out, all the terrible jokes, all the explanations no one wants to hear, all of it. It was long, and mostly interesting, and even had a gif at the end, like I never do that, that’s how into it I was. Then, I left it for three seconds to quickly check if I spelled ‘repression’ correctly, and I had, and then I went back and for some reason it was just gone! Gone! GONE! Why are even the simplest tasks so difficult for me to do?
Anyway, ehm, even though this story isn’t told through Rarity’s perspective, it’s narrative is still mostly driven by her scrapbook, which at first mostly contains almost stalkerish pictures of Applejack but eventually leads into the school year, which is the duration of time this story tells or whatever.
The basic storyline is this: Twilight Sparkle, a junior reporter attending Ponyville High begins her school year by delving into Ponyville’s unassuming history in order to figure out the cause of all the magical mishaps happening in Ponyville and how new girl Sunset Shimmer ties in with it all. Her photographer, Rarity Belle, struggles to cope when her mother’s old process camera begins to capture shadows, strange figures and feints of light that aren’t there, while also very awkwardly wooing her romantically oblivious crush, Applejack. Pinkie Pie, resident class clown and conspiracy theorist, attempts to get the attention of Twilight through numerous acts of love, but they ultimately end in misfortune and mess up her investigation. Fluttershy Breeze, an amateur voodoo practicer, keeps getting prophetic nightmares about her classmates, and, more specifically, her best friend Rainbow Dash, whom she had begun developing feelings for. Meanwhile, Rainbow Dash really begins to feel the burn of popularity when her boyfriend, Soarin, and the football team start getting in the way of her friendship with Fluttershy, and with her younger adoptive sister Scootaloo suddenly hospitalised and her parents divorcing, begins to emotionally distance herself from her friends and family. Applejack Smith begins suffering with paranoia and anxiety when touching people leads to them acting on their more sadistic and honest desires, which only gets worse when she begins to do the same with the people she cares about. Eventually it all leads them to the same place; the Everfree forest, where they discover they are connected to both each other and the forest in more ways than one…
Real quick apology to @feellikeaplat because I accidentally gave my Twilight your Twilight’s hair. I swear it was an accident I didn’t even notice until the drawing was finished and I was casually stalking your page and it was too late to change it.
And now also a huge shoutout to my boy @slendyanswers who has been endlessly patient with me and has helped me with many parts of this storyline, which he will be credited for more specifically when they show up! Also, public apology to him too, I know I suck at keeping up conversations and I know I can get weirdly distant and stuff but it’s just I get really nervous when I text people sometimes and I’ve been really busy lately. When I get the time I will absolutely send you a hello or whatever, thanks for being so cool about my terrible social skills.
In other news, I went to see Wonder Woman today and it was AMAZING and everyone should watch it. At the end she does this like care bear stare thing and it’s really cool. Yup yup yup.
