Regrets Are DumbRegrets Are Dumb by BookishDelight
Hello world, Bookish here. I don't usually give author's notes, but special circumstances compel me to provide a pair for this.
Note 1: This story contains spoilers for the recently released (and pretty awesome) game known as Freedom Planet. I've done my best to keep them mild, but if you care about the storyline and plan on finishing that game, you might want to do so first before reading this.
Note 2: The author would like to extend sincerest apologies to the creators of this game and its characters. What you've created deserves far more than my trademark brand of fluffsap as tribute -- but at the same time, this story refused to not exist. S'what happens when you make a game good enough to inspire, I suppose. Hats off.
Thank you, and on with the proceedings.

Candy Castle, ???

For the third time that night, Taffyta Muttonfudge stood in front of one of Candy Castle's doors with a sense of foreboding.
This door, however, had nothing to do with Vanellope's room nor the castle entrance. This door was different. This door carried its own reasons for being special, far more so than the others.
A controller was embedded on the door. Taffyta looked at the name on it. She had no idea what a "Nintendo" was--some sort of ancient video game deity, perhaps? Taffyta shook her head, chuckling to herself for having such a silly thought. It was more than likely just a manufacturer's name.
Or perhaps the truth lay somewhere in between.
Enough mind-wandering. She was on a mission. Her eyes went back to the controller's buttons. With firm thrusts of her palm, she pressed them.
"Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A..."
Taffyta paused, taking a deep breath and gathering

"Salutations, esteemed student body of Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns! I, the most the most supremely gifted, supremely talented unicorn in all of Canterlot -- no, in all of Equestria, have graciously decided to grace you all with my graceful presence! You've suffered through the rest, but now it's time to sample the best -- gaze in awe at the magical machinations of The Great and Powerful Trixie!"
A blue filly wearing a tiny pointed hat and a cape two sizes too big for her frame stood at center stage on her hind hooves and raised her front ones, sending fireworks erupting around her. Some of the ponies in the audience tensed, waiting for them to catch on the auditorium's stage curtains. Thankfully, none of them did. Trixie, her eyes closed and smile enormous, didn't notice one way or the other.
"And now, the Great and Powerful Trixie will proceed to pull various animals out of her hat!" she said, pulling it off of her head. "Ah, ah, ah -- I know wh

"I appreciate your, uh, concern, Rainbow, but you're still making a huge deal over nothing."
"Nothing? You're kidding me, right?"
Rainbow Dash flailed her hooves as she hovered alongside Twilight. Everypony else had retreated to their rooms for the night, leaving the two alone in their discussion — a discussion that had absolutely not been Twilight's idea.
Yet for some reason, Rainbow remained determined in continuing it while following Twilight to her room — and as much as Twilight loved her friends, it was finally wearing her down.
"We all saw you turn into mush the second you ran into that Flash Whateverwhatsisname pony in the hallway. You don't even know him!"
With a huff, Twilight made a left turn from one of the Crystal Palace's hallways into her guest bedroom. Rainbow Dash still followed. There was officially no stopping her... so Twilight decided to make her work for it.
She flashed her friend a Cheshire smile. "Oh, so you've
