    Anti Twi- An MLP fanfic

    The bright blue mare curled up in her bed, thinking recent events over. It was so shocking, and she was not very happy about it. Of course, she couldn't call it anger- just very, very annoyed and confused. <br>
    Twilight Sparkle had become an alicorn. Twilight had been the mare's rolemodel. In her eyes, Twilight was a goddess. Now she really was. <br>
    The mare had counted herself lucky- her pink and yellow hair was naturally straight, shaped just like Twilight's. Twilight could have been her twin- they were both unicorns, they had the same mane style and eyeshape. Now Twilight was an alicorn. <br>
    Dewdrop Dazzle had thought she would be happy for her rolemodel. But she wasn't. Were those wings neccesary? No, Dewdrop told herself, they were not. They had no more merit than a trophy or crown. <br>
    Dewdrop suddenly was engulfe by feelings of hatred and anger. How DARE Twilight Sparkle ascend to a new rank? Didn't she realize how cool she was already? If somepony dodn't realize that, thy didn't deserve to be cool. Dewdrop screamed in anger. Yet there was nothing she could do about it. Exept one thing. <br>
    <P>
    Twilight trotted through Ponyville. There was Dasiy's shop, Quills and Sofas, the Twilight-Haters-Club, the- WHAT? <br>
    She peeked in and saw sever mares and fillies angrily stompping on Twilight plushies. Twilight stepped back in disbelief. <br>
    The door swung open and Dewdrop Dazzle steped out. She grinned at the princess. <br>
    "Newly founded. Wanna join?" <br>
    "No!" Twilight struggled to remain calm. "That's cruel and bullying behavior, Dewdrop. Why, I oughta-" <br>
    "Use my pretty pony princess powers and fly away with my pretty wings?" Dewdrop mocked in a high pitched squeal. Her voice dropped to normal as se continued, "We are protesting against something we don't believe in. Good day, princess." She sneered the last word and trotted back inside.
