Unexpected Reunion by Earthsong9405 Unexpected Reunion by Earthsong9405
Speedpaint video here:…

Sunburst almost felt as if his heart would burst from his chest as he stared at the mare. It's been long, far too long, since he's seen that wild mane, confident posture, the blaze going down her muzzle. It had to be her. It
had to be his...

"Sis..." He couldn't help but whisper. And it must've been audible, for the mare stopped in her tracks and turned those glowing eyes toward him, and he watched as they seemed to brighten with recognition.

She stilled much like he had, one hoof raised, face drawing inward as she squinted at him with a deep interest. Then, almost cautiously, she murmured back:

"Little Sunny?"


Okay so like, I don't know what happened, but I noticed the near uncanny resemblance between Sunburst and Sunset Shimmer and when I put them side by side I was basically like "YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" and a idea popped into my head. So the idea is this:

What if these two are related? Specifically, siblings? I can see all the possible drama and everything that could come with it too: Parents divorce and the siblings are split from one another because of it. Sunburst's utter lack of self-confidence possibly stemming from how his older sister became Celestia's student. Sunset running away and disappearing led to many believing her dead (including Celestia: I disregard many things from Equestria Girls, including their being an entirely separate universe)... and then here she is. At the Crystal Empire train station, entirely fine and healthy. And it's the first time her baby brother has seen her in years.

I thought it was a fun idea so I did a quick doodle to go along with it. C:

I got the background from here:

never thought of this before (maybe because I'm used to seeing her as a human), but they are really similar o_O

I don't remember if I already commented here, but it looks beautiful! I wonder what happened to your version of Sunset Shimmer. I mean: she disappeared for years, what was she doing? Maybe she went to another world, similar to canon Sunset? But unlike her, she went to an alternate pony world (one where Princess Luna never became Nightmare Moon, since VP Luna apparently never had a bad phase)? I would love if you did a full headcanon for Sunset!

I agree with EG being a different universe tbh, because the MLP movie connected to the show directly in several ways while the EG movies never truly did.
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2018  Professional Filmographer
That's because the movie legitimately takes place in the universe the show does: it's canon. Whereas the EQ is just a spin-off, therefore it isn't canon. Even if it was, I don't care for a lot of what happens in the movie and thus I'd have disregarded its existence anyway.

The episodes Shadow play prove you wrong you are literally wrong the Dazzlings were in Equestria there by Equestria Girls is Cannon. :D
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2018  Professional Filmographer
Too bad I don't actually care.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Zach-Flareking Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2018
I know but it's just feels so good and and yet so bad that Equestria Girls is Cannon the good part we get Sunset Shimmer the bad part Spike the dog is Cannon. But that's mostly just for me I despise the idea of Spike being a dog.
CloureedArt Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
It feels more right to look at EG that way tbh, I just hadnt thought of it til now c:

DragonmanX-90 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2018
...This makes too much goddamned sense to not become canon.
BLACKBLOOD-QUEEN Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
(could've sworn I had you on my watch list.. *derp* )

I like this headcanon though! It's not often connections are made between characters like this XD

yoooooooo yes
i can believe it!
ThePegasusEffect Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't headcanon them as brother and sister (I actually headcanon them as cousins), but I love the idea of their parents splitting up with Sunburst staying with his mum and Sunset staying with her Dad! 
AE4-Universes Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
... You have a way of making me suddenly headcanon things, you know? And I flipping love it <3
Colourstrike Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is amazing! I also headcannon them as siblings.
LemonKaiju Featured By Owner Edited Jul 24, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Omg! What if Sunburst failed Celestia's school JUST so Sunset could pass and become Celestia's student since he knew how much it meant to her! What if Sunburst's mother was the reason Sunset was pushed into becoming so powerful and the divorce of their parents leaving Sunset with serious issues within herself causing her to spiral into losing control of herself!

I'm so sorry I got carried away ;;
This is such an amazing idea!

Sunset reminds me of Nala in this pic.
ElisDoominika Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
Me too!! Her mouth especially! I was like : LION KING!  Also the yellow-orange colours reminds me of lions too

What exactly does Sunset's face remind me of, something from a disney movie but I can't quite place it!!
ToRavenWolf Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2018
Reminds me of something off lion king 😂
Ranunl Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2018   Digital Artist
That toothy face truly reminds me of Lion King.
SilenceTheStarChild Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i'm thinking the lion king? 
I got that idea cause her tail kinda reminds me of a lions so maybe her used it as a base or reference. kinda looks like when simba sees nala again or something 
CitrusEucalyptus Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2018  Professional General Artist
This is a fantastic headcannon that you have and I'm all for it!

Excellent job!

I hope that you have a great and  blessed day/night!
Caederyn Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2018  Student Filmographer
Okay I love this idea.  They look so similar and gosh I may incorporate this idea into my own Next Gen (if that's okay with you.)
