A Second Chance at Storytime

Starlight Glimmer (Nervous Smile) mlp season 6 : (very nervous and embarrassed) So uh, yeah, Twilight... during my magic practice I decided to try this temporary age-reversal spell on myself, thinking it was just for 30 minutes. But I misread it and cast a Duobus Diebus instead of a Tempus Momentarius. You know, all those Latinus rhymingus wordus. So now I'm... (lowers head) stuck as a filly for the next 48 hours.

Emoticon - Twilight Sparkle Wat : (stunned) ...

MLP Twilight Sparkle (Nervous Smile) Plz : (then smiles warmly) Oh, Starlight... I can see how all those similar sounding words can mess you up. That happened to me back at magic school. (giggles) But you so look so cute as a filly.

:iconstarlightcuteplz: : Really?

MLP Twilight Sparkle (Nervous Smile) Plz : And, take a look at your flank.

Starlight Glimmer (smile) plz : (looks at her flank, then squees) EEEEE! I STILL HAVE MY CUTIE MARK?!? Hnnnnnnng!

MLP Twilight Sparkle (Nervous Smile) Plz : You're still the talented Starlight Glimmer who is my pupil and friend. You just so happen to be temporarily stuck in a foal's body. Even the most talented ponies make mistakes.

:iconstarlightdozyplz: : Yeah. Even Trixie told me that once.

Twilight Sparkle (happy cry) plz : Just like me, Starlight, you've been studying a bit too hard. You need to just rest for while. So instead of you reading a book, I read a book to you! (floats a storybook from a bookshelf) What was your favorite story as a filly?

:iconstarlightcuteplz: : Twilight, are you serious? (laughs) Okay, Ponylocks and the Three Bears.

Twilight Sparkle (yes) plz
: That's a good filly. Just relax, rest and listen to Aunty Twilight. (begins to read) Once upon a time in the Everfree Forest, there lived three bears...

And so Princess Twilight Sparkle teaches her newly de-aged student Starlight Glimmer how to make lemonade out of lemons. As long as she is stuck as a filly, Starlight can have the fun that comes with it and enjoy being young again until she returns to normal. Everypony makes mistakes, but we should never beat ourselves over them and hold us back from making a new start.

Thank you! Brohoof

I love the fan art of filly Starlight, but most of them are depressing and sad as they repeat the events that made her turn bad. I felt sorry for Glim Glam and wanted at least part of her fillyhood to be happy. Even if it was an accidental do-over.

This was the cute drawing that inspired my deviation and accompanying short fanfic:

Huh......I never noticed that. Most filly Starlight pictures are sad and depressing! What a nice change of pace. And what a cute and very in-character way of going about it.  

And I know that. That's how I found this. I saw your comment and clicked on the link. :D

“Here’s a touching story: Once upon a time, you died and I lived happily ever after…. The End”

I've got a better one: "Once there was an very ugly pony. He was so ugly that everypony died. The End."
