Stella Burst by Reitanna-Seishin Stella Burst by Reitanna-Seishin
get it? stella burst? stella meaning star? starburst? yeah. the previous name I had for her was DUMB. I choose the cutie mark before the name usually, so I was like "..." but I like stella burst. it gave me an excuse to make her extremely colorful. alright, I gotta write her personality and stuff. here... goes... SOMETHING!

background:

stella is a very unique Pegasus, and her parents are astounded by her accomplishments. as a new born foal, she instantly was able to fly. this made parenting very difficult, for they were first time parents. her crib actually had to be built sort of like a large cage, but it was made up all comfortable and had plenty of room in it. this way, stella wouldn't going flying off somewhere in the middle of the night. she never cried though. after realizing she was trapped when it was time to sleep, she simply took to fluttering around her cage if she wasn't sleepy. it didn't bother her; she seemed to understand the reason she had to be "locked up."

when she got a little older, barely able to speak, she was able to understand that randomly flying off unsupervised wasn't safe, so she behaved and stayed where she was told. this made the new parents MUCH more at ease, and if they needed a baby sitter, they wouldn't have to worry so much.

the reason she is so extraordinary is because she received her cutie mark at the age of three, still only being able to speak in broken sentences. there was a family gathering, so the entire family witnessed it and were absolutely astounded, stella's mother actually being so shocked, she nearly fainted. the family was outside, mingling, and stella was feeling particularly adventurous, deciding to disobey her parents for once. even though they lived in Cloudsdale, stella wanted to know what was high above her, so she fluttered straight upward. one of her aunts suddenly spotted a colorful object in the air, and shrieked as she saw that it was he neice. as the entire family was composed of pegasi, many of them flew up to retrieve the little filly, including her father.

"stella burst! go back down this instant!" her father demanded, for he was afraid she'd go too high where the air was thinner, and she'd pass out. noticing how worried her family looked, she shot downward as fast as she could, and this alarmed them even more. she picked up speed, letting out a long "squeeeeeeeee!" of delight, and to everypony's horror, she shot straight through the clouds toward the ground below. there was a massive "boom" sound (not to be confused with the sonic rainboom), and everypony who had witnessed the tiny Pegasus rocketing downward immediately went after her.

there was a crater about four feet in diameter, and there was a lot of commotion as ponies crowded around it, stella's mother sobbing in fear that her baby was hurt... or worse. they all waited for the dust to clear, and when it did, there sat tiny stella in the crater that was about two feet deep. she was giggling, and somehow the speed and friction of the impact caused many of the earth's minerals to warp, making the dirt and stone glitter magnificently in the sun. as soon as they saw her laughing, her cutie mark appeared. it was a very scary and exciting event. not only that, but she was completely unharmed.

when she got into school, a lot of students picked on her due to jealousy that she's had her cutie mark since she was a baby, and even more so from other pegasi who couldn't fly yet. it never bothered her, and she was never mean in return, but simply shrugged it off and went about her day. she knew that she'd meet somepony who would be her friend someday, somepony who wouldn't think any less of her because of her cutie mark appearing so early. it took some time, but she finally made friends, realizing that stella was not stuck up or vain about her success.

stella's hobbies were art and rock collecting. though, she didn't collect just ANY rocks. she only collected shiny and lustrous minerals, most of them being metamorphic rocks. she also liked to find gems that nature had created on its own. she housed her collection in a specific room in her house, which was now in Ponyville because she had easier access to rocks and minerals in the earth. she never made them into anything, just simply liked to admire and study them. she decided to educate herself in geology, and later also became interested in astronomy.

as for art, she only did that for fun and not as something to study. she'd paint and use gratuitous amounts of glitter in her pictures or little objects. when it snowed in the winter, stella would build sculptures out of the snow and use food coloring to color them. then she'd take a big bucket of glitter and zoom through the air above and around her projects, covering the snow in sparkles. the citizens of Ponyville looked forward to the yearly sculptures, and it became an annual winter attraction. pictures were taken to preserve the art long after the snow melted.

she'll often go back up high into the air to fly as fast as she possibly could when feeling energetic, but had more control so as to not collide with the ground again. she was lucky enough to come out unscathed the last time, but she wasn't sure if she'd be so lucky again, so she never repeated the action. she really did enjoy zooming across the sky, getting drunk on the feeling of euphoria. her favorite time to fly was at night, that way she'd be flying amongst the stars. she often fantasized about the lustrous objects and rocks that dwelled in the endless void, hoping that some day she'd get a chance to go into space.


personality:

as you can probably already guess, stella burst is sweet, friendly, energetic, and optimistic. even when something makes her sad, she does something positive to try and bring her back to contentment. she's very good at making friends, but if anypony asks her advice on getting their cutie mark, she'll be unable to help because she was too young to really understand what she did, even though she's heard the story countless times. she'd simply say, "you don't find your destiny, your destiny finds you."

as kind as she is, she's also a little spacious. she'll go into these sort of trances where she'll just kind of look around, but seeming to not be focusing on anything in particular. her expression will show a sort of peaceful awe, as if she was imagining her entire surroundings becoming dark like the inside of a cave, but covered in sparkles. sometimes it takes a few seconds to snap her out of her stupor.

stella is also incredibly intelligent, able to soak up information like a steroid enhanced sponge. she likes to have intellectual conversations with others, but sometimes it's hard to find somepony on the same level of knowledge as her.

she's also the first in her family in two generations to have graduated color in her mane, tail, and wings.


fwoo! that was a bit of a challenge! but I think I'm pretty happy with it

now... I'm gonna go eat my hostess cupcakes and write more childhood-ruining fan fiction.


~:::UPDATE:::~

fuck it. fuck everything. I don't even know why I fucking try. this is when I curse my inability to break promises. fuck it.


~:::UPDATE 2:::~

she's going into the muffins fan group because she's not going to be alive much longer.

I remember reading this story. Man, this was too bad that Stella died and as a matter of fact, I marked that as one of the worst things the bakers could have done.

Now, I know you don't believe in this, but I read and listened to "Inkie's Stellar Obsession" (I know you hate Stella and she died and everything but) and I know Inkie said "I don't want to DATE her, I want to KILL her" but it just made me question Inkie's sexuality. (Again, I DO know you don't believe in this!) If you did HAPPEN to believe in those kind of things, what would you say Inkie's sexuality would be? My dumb questions continue.

IF I gave the bakers sexualities, inkie would be bisexual. on a related note, minkie would be asexual.

I guessed as much.
I knew about Minkie, Inkie was just a wild guess for me. Thanks for answering.

Hello Reitanna. So, um, cutting to the chase, can I use Stella Burst for my fanfics? Not that she is of use in Muffins anymore. I promise to give all credit to you.

Hey! I'm SpiritWolf2468, but please just call me Blue.
I'm a firm fan of the Muffins series and I really love this character's design!
I was wondering if you would consider making me an OC? If possible, we could do a trade! I just don't have a very good pony OC at all, and you're so amazing at designing them! (My favourite character in your series is Minkie: her edge of insanity is so thin it's delightful XD))
If you don't want to, it's absolutely fine, but I'd love it if you did! Please reply with your answer!

lol no hunny, mary sue means like a cookie cutter character. they are usually designed by people who are inexperienced at writing and/or character creations, and they are completely uncreative. mary sue characters tend to be very similar, even when designed by different people, and they are often very bad. to someone like me who constantly ensures each character is creative and filled with personality, it's an insult.
