"Well, I think he's an asshole." - some random internet asshole
Celestia's final conversation with Twilight, and thoughts about eternity.
Bravo, sir/madam! (select appropriate)
Hm... Certainly a very deep and direct lesson Celestia tried to teach for a final lesson. Kudos.
My only thoughts are the use of the word "dolor" and the mention of Celestia's coronation. I thought Discord ruled Equestria before Luna and Celestia took power... True we never find out if she was born one or changed into one though.
Nice! I'm liking this
Well this came out of left field...
Fantastic job by the way Emerald, better add this to the pile of great stories you've given us. Can't wait to see what you got planned over the summer.
...And then Twilight raised the blade and said 'There can only be one!' Okay, sorry, that was a bad joke. Anyways, there seems to be a lot of stories implicating the sadness in being an immortal alicorn. Besides, I'm not entirely convinced about Twilight automatically becoming immortal after being turned into an alicorn princess. What about some happiness in it, huh? As most know, immortality is a gift and a curse. If you've ever played a video game called Lost Odyssey it details the consequences of being an immortal in great detail. One of the strongest points is that, when one cannot die, they eventually become an empty shell without continual pursuit of a goal or purpose. Now, Celestia tells Twilight not to give into love but if that gives her eternal existence short-lived meaning then she should do it. Yes, it will end eventually but it'll give her something to live for. In addition, this doesn't just apply to short-lived romance but anything worth living for. Take into account Celestia's role in overseeing the citizens of Equestria. She most likely sees them as not only her loyal subjects but her 'children' and protecting that is definitely worth a continual existence. Maybe it is worth it for Twilight to seek the same thing.
Just throwing some thoughts out there. This was a really good story with some deep subject matter lightly touched on! 'alicornized'...I almost feel like that should be a thing (if it isn't already). Maybe 'alicornification' too.
Hey, wait a minute... If Twilight isn't to be married, then what of her brother and her sister-in-law ? :twilightopps:
Other that that, great tale for a one shot, despite the sad tone of it all.
s-so s-sad! *cries*
That line about 'not to be married' seemed to me to be more about her fierce independance and will, and possibly the fact that her lover has died, rather than a ban on getting married, as it is followed by "Few ponies have wills as strong as the one I see in you." And since Celestia goes on to describe how she has been married before, the point is reinforced that it's not a ban, just a suggestion that getting married any time soon might be a bad idea.
Sir. F'n y'don't mind.
Dolor - a state of great sorrow or distress. Also, my official headcanon is pretty damn complex. I have a blog about it, and when I have the time, I'll link it to you. When it's finished, it's approximated to be over 100,000 words.
I don't remember writing this. I remember the fact that I wrote something, but didn't remember what about... until, bam, I got notifications about a new story of mine. Wat.
Alicronization, also called transethnorigy, is the magical process of creating an alicorn. All alicorns were created, from the first alicorn, Emperor Tandem Freehold, to the second, Rushing Waters, founder of Equestria, to Celestia, to Luna, to Caprisis, a base-unicorn, to King Daron, to Princess Cadenza, to Princess Twilight Sparkle. Only the last six are still alive.
Since I don't remember writing it, I don't know what I was going for, but when I read it this morning, I just thought it was introspective, not really sad.
Maybe. I don't remember writing this.
ALL THE EMOTES
How can Twilight live for the next thousands of years when it was stated that she won't oulive her friends?
She won't outlive her friends because the TV show won't last that long. That doesn't mean fanfiction can't have it happen.
>>25578862557886 Alicornization, huh? Well, it certainly seems like you put a lot of thought into your headcanon (some of pt. 1 from your blog post on Apr 15th). It is definitely worth reading when I get the time - that and Equestrian History I. From what I glanced at in those writings, I can see Equestrian history being that way. Not sure if this will mean anything, but you seem like a pretty cool guy!
but that I don not allow
"I believe this existence in within your grasp."
Just a couple typos that caught my eye.
Question, Twilight said she missed her.
That means she was in love with another female.
And from what I can guess, it's probably from the Mane 6.
Now who was she in love with?
CHOOSE YOUR LOVER
>>25578862557886 but it is sad! Twilight's best friend in teh whole world is leaving her!
I haven't logged onto this site in an age, but I just decided to, and saw this. I have to say this is one of the best-written, saddest and deepest things I have ever read. It is truly great. I just wanted to say that.
That made me smile.
That's an accomplishment.
Have a D-moticon.
Just came back, noticed this comment
OH MY GOD THANK YOU SO MUCH
ALL my passion goes into worldbuilding, and you just fucking validated it. I love you. Come here. *touches inappropriately*
Who was Twilight lover? >>25612212561221 It say's Twilight dated a Princess. Cadance is married, It say's Twilight's lover has passed on, Luna is still around and Celestia is leaving. Who is the lover? Also how far into the future of Equestria is this?
I'm sorry, that wasn't very clear. Celestia said 'especially for the other' as in the other pony in the relationship with Twilight. And Twilight is a Princess. Twilight's late spouse was somepony, obviously, mortal.
This was good, but then...
"I'm sleeping in."
Put a fucking cannon shell through my chest. Holy fuck warn a guy, that line hit hard
Hey, thanks for the follow and such. Means a lot.
