Crioton's Fanfiction Collection (Sunset Series and Other Stories)

Recommended Posts

Hello folks! I want to share with you the collective works of my favorite MLP author, Crioton. Since April 2011, he has written nine fanfics, seven of which are linked to his own little universe where he implements ideas that are not in the show. While Crio's stories do have a few tiny flaws here and there, he has good grammar and word choice, plus what made me a fan of his are his two major fanfics: "Sunset" and "For Want of a Dawn", which fall into grimdark territory. I am not really into grimdark, and Crio's stuff are the only ones I've enjoyed. He dosen't let the dark elements become the over-arching point of the stories, and instead focuses on his narrative and premise.


I very much recommend giving his stories a read, and I have listed them all below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! And for those who have already read his stories, feel free to discuss them!

Crioton's main series of fanfics. Story elements from each of these stories carry over to the next, so it is recommended that you read them in order or some things may confuse you. All these stories take place in-between Season 1 and Season 2.

Crioton's first fanfic, in which we are introduced to his version of Derpy.

"Derpy goes about her usual day, but with a slight change; she tries to talk to Twilight Sparkle. Will she be able to make friends with theintroverted unicorn? Or, will she scare her off with her... unique ways?"

Twilight receives a letter out of the blue from her mother. She has left her the ages-old task of keeping their family tree updated, and hints to it being incomplete. Will she be able to discover this missing relative, or will she fail as her mother did?


Ciroton's first major dark fanfic, which is five chapters long. "Some things in this world happen by chance. Others do not. Twilight  is about to learn a disturbing truth that will turn her world upside down."


(Warning: Contains some disturbing images and a bit of graphic violence. Also, please note that what happens to Twilight and Celestia in this story carries over to the other fanfics below. So if you read any of the below fics without reading this one and are confused about some of the things in them, they probably happened here.)

Ciroton's take on how Dinky came to be Derpy's daughter.

A normal night for Derpy goes horribly wrong. Can she take the charred remains of a shattered life and nurse it back to health? How will the citizens of Ponyville react to the changes that night brings? Can the Pegasus conquer her demons for a pony who means more to her then anything else?

Weary of the humdrum day-to-day business of Canterlot, Princess Luna decides to do something about it by reviving a holiday lost to the passage of time. However, she gets more than she bargained for when her

Trixie assures you, no matter WHAT that infernal Twilight Sparkle says,
she is NOT the Great and Powerful Trixie's sister, and that mare with
her is NOT Trixie's mother!

... And most certainly of all, Trixie
is not starving to death or down on her luck! She is the chosen protege
of the greatest magician the world has ever know! There is no WAY that
Trixie could ever be like that. None!

This is the sequel to the "Blood is Thicker" story above, so read that before this one.

Crioton's longest fanfic at twenty-five chapters. In this grimdark epic adventure sequel to Sunset, Twilight is transported ten years to an alternate bad future where Equestria is ruled by the tyrant Queen Eos. Her friends have all gone their separate ways and can no longer agree or work with each other. Can Twilight cope with all of the changes thrust upon her in this dark new world, and can she reunite her friends and bring down Eos?

(Warning: This is Crioton's most intense story, and contains graphic violence and death. Be forewarned. Also, it is **required ** that you read Sunset first to understand this)


(These stories below are not a part of the "Sunset" universe. These can be read without having to read any of the other above stories first)

Some things are meant to remain secret; to forever toil in the shadows behind a smiling facade of playfulness and friendship. Rarity happens across such a secret one star-filled night, but can she steer towards the light, or with the intoxicating and seductive brew of power overcome her judgement? After all, that which should be feared the most is the friendly pony with the dagger behind their back.

Tagged 'Dark' for mild Horror.

(Warning: Contains a bit of graphic violence near the very end. )

Crioton's latest fanfic, currently in progress.
Vinyl Scratch is a mare of mystery: hard to meet and even harder to get to know. It is an image she has cultivated since her early days as a DJ and is not likely to ever let go. She is the queen of the music scene and her purple shades are her crown. To her roommate, Octavia, she is a vulgar annoyance and a blemish on her otherwise spotless life. However, when she accidentally destroys the one thing that matters most to the unicorn, the cellist finds herself learning more than she ever cared to know about the rock-loving mare.
