After The Fall by Beavernator After The Fall by Beavernator
:iconsweetiebelleplz: Wow! Where'd you get the wings from? :iconrarityplz: On my trip to Canterlot I met up with Princess Celestia  to design her a new wardrobe. It all started with some small talk, until she asked me how you were doing.
:iconsweetiebelleplz: COOL! The Princess contracted you to work for her?! What'd you say?  :iconrarityplz: I said I was worried about you all the time. In spite of our many... squabbles- you're the reason I keep striving to do my best. That... if anything happens to you I'd be the first to lay down everything- everything for just the smallest slimmer of hope to get you back.
:iconsweetiebelleplz: ...You're kidding, are you kidding? :iconrarityplz: She bored into my eyes for a moment- it... felt like minutes to me. Eventually she digressed, and started talking about her own littler sister. She paused for a moment, and with some hesitation asked me what I would have done in her place when Princess Luna began to grow envious.
:iconsweetiebelleplz: What'd you say? :iconrarityplz: I said if Sweetie Belle and I were in that position- I'd have everypony sleep during the day instead. Princess Celestia turned away and stared out the nearby window for a bit. Without averting her gaze she said I was the first pony who answered that question that way. Twilight Sparkle said she would have done exactly as I have and banish Princess Luna. Trixie would have taken away her horn and wings to be exiled, and Sunset Shimmer... would have dueled her sister for a more "permanent solution".
:iconrarityplz: Muttering under her breath, murmurs and whisps about "turning the clock back" and "giving me a chance at becoming a star pupil of hers" filled the air around me. I caught wind of it eventually, and had to politely point out that I already had my destiny set before me. I could tell it killed her inside, but I didn't say anything. She turned away, again muttering- this time about a "cutie mark", and something "so powerful she herself had to cast it". Before her eyes darted around too much I stepped her and held her in my embrace, sliding my hoof down to readjust her attention back to me. I told her that she owed me nothing- that my friend Twilight deserved to be where she is.
:iconsweetiebelleplz: So... why are you a princess now?
:iconrarityplz: I'm not. I could have been, and I gave that back to Twilight. So... she gave me these wings knowing that I deserved them. 

Tried to draw ponies while listening to nothing but Two Steps From Hell - results were this.

And here come the tears of joy from this deadly cute image of sisters.
Rarity would be a great Alicorn.
Poor Belley,she is so cute when she's getting love after a terrible event.

Wow....the description you gave was perfect for the ponies and their presonalities and everything! Perfect way to give Rarity wings, and I can see Rarity doing this, even with still wanting to be a princess :nod:

"Trixie would have taken away her horn and wings to be exiled, and Sunset Shimmer... would have dueled her sister for a more "permanent solution".

Nice contrast with the difference  between Trixie and Sunset. As selfish as Trixie is, she's a child desperate for attention compared to the monster Sunset is inside.

And an interesting sight of Rarity STILL thinking that Twilight is best suited for the job she has.

And Rarity's answer shows WHY she is generosity!
