Unexpected Reunion by Earthsong9405 Unexpected Reunion by Earthsong9405

---------------------------------------------------------------
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:

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!

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!

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

I didn't want to admit it, but yeah, it's almost certain that Sunburst and Sunset are brother and sister. I especially love the 'uh... what?' look on Sunset's face, as if she thinks that if she squints just right, she can see the family resemblance.
I approve of this head cannon. But then, I approve of anything that involves Sunset Shimmer. Well done! :D

I've always loved the level of expression and detail you put in your drawings, not to mention how suttle your shading is. Even though i long since left the fandom, i think your work is still marvelous, be it related or not to mlp.

I love how very simple, subtle tweaks like Sunset's blaze and orange streak make her look even more related to Sunburst than she already does, while also looking like they would fit her whether they were related or not! Really cool.

That's fine, it's just I can see them as cousins too.
Mostly just because they don't seem to mention each other, but then again Twilight didn't seem to mention Shining Armor too in the beginning of the series.
