US Backcard Story

G1 Starshine's US Backcard


On a cool rainy morning Starshine was ready for excitement. "I want to have some fun today!" she shouted to the dark giant rain clouds. Stamping her hoof impatiently on the ground, she pleaded, "Send me on a secret rainbow journey!" The clouds opened and a multi-colored beam of light swooped down to lift her up into the sky!

Traveling in the beautiful light, Starshine's rainbow-colored hair stretched out behind her like the tail of a shooting star. The light carried her on a special adventure to a land of enchantment and magic!

"Hi, Ho my brightly colored beauty!" shouted the Milky Way. Starshine winked at a comet and laughed with the man in the moon. By evening she was home again. "This has been a very exciting day indeed!" she thought as she gazed up at the sky. Twinkling down the stars whispered, "Come back again, Starshine!"

French Backcard Story

G1 French Starshine's Backcard

Par un matin froid et pluvieux, Starshine cherchait à s'amuser

„Aujourd'hui, j'en envie de jouer!“ cria-t-elle aux gros nuages gris.

Elle piaffa d'imtatience et supplia: „Je veux faire un voyage secret

sur l'arc-en-ciel!“ Les nuages s'ouvrirent et un pan de lumière

multicolore l'emporta dans le ciel!

Starshine voyage dans cette belle lumière, sa crinière couleur

arc-en-ciel flotte derrière elle et ressemble à la queue d'une étoile


La lumière l'amène faire un voyage d'aventures dans un monde

de magie et d'enchantement.

„Bonjour, bonjour, ma petite beauté aux couleurs brillantes!“

lui lanca la Voie lactée. Starshine fit un clin d'oeil une comète

et échangea des plaisanteries avec le bonhomme de la lune.

A la tombée du soir, elle était de retour chez elle. „Ce fut une belle

journée! pensa-t-elle en levant les yeux au ciel.

Le scintillement des étoiles lui répondit:

„Reviens nous voir, Starshine!“

Greek Starshine's Backcard


Once upon a time, in the magical land of ponies, beautiful Little Princess and her little dragon lived in Castle of the sky. The Castle of the sky had the vivid color of pink roses, and its towers were deep blue, like the sky in springtime. When Little Princess celebrated her "Nameday" her little dragon gave orders for all the gates of the Castle to open widely, for the bridge to lower to the ground and for the trumpets to announce the Celebration. The news would spread immediately to the corners of the Earth. And then, the Fairytale Ponies along with the Star Ponies would put on their very best outfits, would comb their long manes nicely and, shining of beauty and grace, they would come to the Castle of the Sky to honor pretty Little Princess. Star Ponies adorned the celebration with their dazzling looks while incomparably graceful, Fairytale Ponies added splendor to the event.

Chrysomallousa (Sunbeam) put sunbeams on her hair, stars adorned Astrofeggia (Twilight), and Pigassos (Firefly) went to the celebration with his marvelous blue mane floating while he flew over the clouds.

Melodia (Medley), the most caressing of all Star Ponies, having her pretty musical notes on, went to the event accompanied by fabulous Avgerinos (Glory).

The faster of all Ponies, Astrapi (Skydancer), always arrived first, contrary to Protovrohi (Parasol) who was usually late.

Anatoli (Sunlight) would bring her shining colors to bright up the celebration, whereas Neraida (Starshine) and Anemos (Windy) would keep everyone laughing, with their freshness, friendly and good mood.
