    Cleansed of Darkness  by SilverStar7


    Starlight Glimmer was once the head of a cult. She used her magic to control minds, enslave ponies, and nearly destroyed all of Equestria. Such acts are unforgivable, but somehow she was forgiven by Princess Twilight, and has become her student. It is certainly more than she deserves.

    While Starlight admires the grace with which Twilight forgave her, and frankly, the grace that the Princess displays in all areas of life, she has to wonder: What's her secret?


    Forgiveness by Manaphy


    Starlight Glimmer couldn't be more relieved that everything ended well for her, Twilight Sparkle, and time itself. Yet despite going through life with a genuine smile on her face for the first time in ages, an ache in her chest suggests that not all is well.

    Perhaps she never truly earned forgiveness. Starlight wonders if her reactions were so unjustified to where being forgiven would be impossible. And most of all, she ponders whether the punishment she feared would come crashing down on her. A peculiar letter addressed to her also doesn't help matters.

    Her only viable option is to talk with Twilight.

    A Glimmer of Hope by Gordon Pasha


    Radiant Hope thought she could save Sombra from himself. Instead, she lost everything.

    Alone and hurting, Hope finds her way to Seaddle and tries to settle down into a quiet and obscure life where she can be left to her sorrow. That is, until she crosses paths with Starlight Glimmer, who realizes that Hope could be the key to setting her own dubious plans into motion. They may not like each other, but before either of them knows it, a series of events launches them on a perilous journey along the western coast of Equestria and they must depend upon each other to survive.

    Enter a devotee of Starlight's who takes this whole "Equality" thing a little too seriously, a quack doctor with an ego the size of Manehatten, a wandering lunatic that's convinced he's Starswirl the Bearded, and a secret agent intent on protecting the princesses at all costs, and things get complicated rather quickly. Everypony has their own agenda and nothing is what it appears to be. Through it all, Hope and Starlight will be forced to take a hard look at their lives and the choices they've made. But if they can manage to make peace with their respective pasts, our heroines might just have a shot at that rarest of things; redemption.


    Daybreaker by Lets Do This


    "Do not speak to us of flame or wrath! Lest we show thee what the words truly mean!"
