It could be false memories, not that I would lie. I remember being very little and seeing stain glass windows, just like the throne room.I was gonna leave this backstory in case it may contradict with yours but heres what I figured so far.
Oh... well, my father told me that he and his best friend, my uncle Critical Hit, they were adventuring somewhere near mountains, I can't rememeber where exactly where. They heard foal crying and went investigate.
They found a cave where the crying came from and found a small group of trolls preparing a meal, with... me on the menu.
They fought the trolls and rescued me. Then there was the matter of where I came from. Dad said not even Twilight or Celestia's political influence could find who my real parents were. And no one in all of Equestria called up and claimed a baby foalnapped by trolls.
My Dad himself said he too was taken away from his parents at a very young age and had to adapt into a hostile new life, but was eventually adopted by my grandmother Zecora. While Fluttershy was not adopted or ever had such hardships, she already had made a place for me in her heart while everypony else searched for my parents.
Over time the search became pointless as nopony claimed me as their own. Nopony other than Fluttershy and Epic who took care of me long enough to be my new parents.
But as I grew older and got my cutie mark, how I got my cutie mark... well I'm not sure. Most ponies realise their own talent first before their cutie marks but me.. it just showed up one evening when I decided to go into Everfree Forest alone. But I wasn't doing anything related to flowers, if anything I was defying my better judgement not to go in Everfree Forest alone.
I asked my older cousins, who sort of specialise in cutie marks, they didn't know what it meant either. Scootaloo suggested maybe it had something to do with the fact I was adopted.
Now I've always knew I was adopted, but it was around then I started to wonder, how "related" are we to one another? My aunt Twilight was not my mothers sister, why do I call her aunt? My uncle Critical was not my fathers brother, why did he want me to call him uncle? It left me questioning a lot of things, especially question myself. Who is my real family? Why was I taken away? And why didn't they want me back?
Despite my parents and aunts wishes for a more higher, prestigious education, I decided to come to Baltimare because I heard that a long time a go a family of ponies living in Baltimare had a family crest of a white petaled flower in the center of a red petaled flower forming a rose.>After a pause.
But if you ask my mother she will say I am a gift from a stork.>>16359OK, we continue another time.
