I love Sunset Shimmer. She’s been my second favorite character for years now and that hasn’t come close to changing.
 
However, I wish she was explored better while she was a villain. She could’ve been very interesting.

With as many fans and little to no detractors Sunny has, is this thread really necessary? I mean I’m fine with it existing, but I thought this sort of thing exists somewhere already.

What I really love about Sunset is that she’s the only pony who has fully adjusted and embraced human life. The fact she’s just so talented and interested in so many things in her new home really makes me admire her, like she broke new ground in ponykind.
 
That being said, one thing about this that I really wish they eventually tackle - does she ever get homesick? Does she ever think back to her time and wonder if she really did miss out on a great life, to the point where she debates moving back for good? This seems like something that should be addressed at some point. I know Friendship Games had a deleted subplot regarding this, but frankly I don’t think that would have done the idea justice. I feel an idea like this deserves a more all out treatment.

Before anyone gets any ideas, I like Sunset fine. She a good character and I enjoy her arc. That being said, I’ve seen better, even in MLP. Still, my personal issues don’t get in the way of liking her. If I did’t like her I wouldn’t have included her in the sequels to my crossover “Reformed Bad Guy” group.

Maybe don’t write that or be in the application thread about Sunset then. Might want to go to the opinions thread for that. Just saying.
