Author: The Mysterious Pony
Description: During the joyful celeberation of Midnight's first birthday, Princess Celestia seeks from Trixie the resolution of a longstanding mystery. What she gets is an answer far more than she had bargained for. An answer that is not only great and powerful but unimaginably bittersweet. The tale of how an orphan filly would become who she became to be.
