Shining Armor has wanted to be a Royal Guard ever since he was a colt. It's been his hope and his dream, and he's closer to it now than ever before.

The only question left is if it's worth leaving his little sister behind.

#8 · 121w, 18h ago · · ·

Short, simple, and brief. And one hell of a story. Me like long time. :pinkiehappy:

#9 · 121w, 18h ago · · ·

That was really sweet.

#10 · 121w, 17h ago · · ·

There's so much potential in Shining Armour's character that the season finale didn't even touch on. I'm so glad there are such talented bronies to provide gems like this story and this song.

#11 · 121w, 16h ago · · ·

*notices the most adorable of all screencaps of Shining Armor, and has to read*

That was ... sweet.

#12 · 121w, 16h ago · · ·

#14 · 121w, 13h ago · · ·

Dat title.

#15 · 121w, 13h ago · · ·

Just awesome, Obs. As usual.

#16 · 121w, 13h ago · · ·

I had a feeling this would get featured. A very good job sir.

#17 · 121w, 13h ago · · ·

I was expecting this to be sad, but I'm glad I read it. What a sweet story.:unsuresweetie:

But this namby pamby story still hasn't gotten me any closer to my cutie mark.:scootangel:

#18 · 121w, 13h ago · · ·

YES! There's not enough of these kind of stories!

Brilliant!

#19 · 121w, 12h ago · · ·

Great story:ajsmug:.

Congrats on making the front page!

#20 · 121w, 12h ago · · ·

This is nice. :pinkiesmile:

#21 · 121w, 12h ago · · ·

T'was a great story...

#22 · 121w, 11h ago · · ·

FUS RO *dawwwww.*

Truly gropin- I MEAN TOUCHING

Too awesome! :rainbowdetermined2:

#24 · 121w, 11h ago · · ·

Try to relax...I'm not going to eat you

LOLS XD

#25 · 121w, 11h ago · · ·

adorable

#26 · 121w, 11h ago · · ·

Slightly said, but heartwarming overall. Love it.

#28 · 121w, 11h ago · · ·

good, but still doesn't fill the void of "why oh why did they handwave everything of importance in the last episodes!" :facehoof:

speaking of which, why no mention of Shining Armor's Cutie Mark? You've got a lot of territory to cover and no canon to restrain you, go for it!

#29 · 121w, 10h ago · · ·

D'AWWWWWWW!! .... that was so sweet.

#30 · 121w, 10h ago · · ·

Wow, this turned out to be a lot happier of an ending than I had expected. Not that I think that's a bad thing, haha. Nice little feel-good story here, great work, Obs!

#31 · 121w, 10h ago · · ·

manly tears; they have been shed

#32 · 121w, 9h ago · · ·

I have nothing to say other than it was incredibly well written, and a great idea. Fantastic job.

#33 · 121w, 9h ago · · ·

hmm weird a happy ending takes me closer to crying than any of the other endings wth

#34 · 121w, 9h ago · · ·

Manly tears

#35 · 121w, 9h ago · · ·

This made me cry when i finished. Not much but still. The only books i've ever read that made me cry were Past Sins and I Could Have Been. The greatest books of all time in my life..... This is a close third for me.:pinkiesad2: < thats happy btw. :twilightsmile:

#36 · 121w, 9h ago · · ·

i was listening to bbbff while reading this and it just made me burst out crying. especially when he talked about dying. but i did kinda smile when twi was saying how he had the best scores ever. please please please add another chapter. I'll love love love you forever if you do.

#37 · 121w, 8h ago · · ·

These were the questions I asked when I saw the finale. "Twilight has a brother? Where was he for oh... EVERYTHING important in the last two years? Equestria really takes civil defense seriously I guess..."

#38 · 121w, 8h ago · · ·

I agree you could have gone further in some parts, but I really think it's a nice fleshing out of Shining Armor's background. Made me well up a few times.

#39 · 121w, 7h ago · · ·

Princess Celestia's mane is an Aurora Borialis... not a rainbow.... but great story anyways :twilightsmile:

#40 · 121w, 6h ago · · ·

D'aww. That was nice. Good work, Obselescence. :twilightsmile: I'm glad it had a happy ending. Those are my favorite kinds of endings.

(As a side note, your name is terribly difficult to spell without looking at it every five seconds. Or maybe that's just me being a derp. Meh.)

#41 · 121w, 5h ago · · ·

Very nice.

#42 · 121w, 4h ago · · ·

Nice.  Really all I can say about it.

#43 · 121w, 4h ago · · ·

First, I'd like to say thanks for writing this story, I'm glad it exists. I'm in the Air Force and I also have a younger sister. I put off enlisting because of this exact reason. It still makes me feel guilty... :pinkiesad2: Like I've left her behind. This feeling is likely never to go away, but just knowing that other people have also been put in this situation is comforting.

#44 · 121w, 3h ago · · ·

Hmm...the Equestrian military must take things very seriously. I mean, they don't get to leave at all? Maybe, it's a stallionpower issue. What I mean is that they probably don't have the numbers to rotate shifts.

Either way, this story is sweet and the emotions were done well as the bond between Shining and Twiley. :twilightsmile::fluttercry:

Good work!

Silver out!

#45 · 121w, 3h ago · · ·

It might be just me, but I didn't found this SO sad. Actually, it was more like... Hearthwarming. Cute story, very well written, explores a bit further into Shining Armour and Twilight's relationship, develops SA's character a bit more, and it had a good feeling overall. Just like a few other people here said: Given the fact that SA's character and his relationship with Twi were explored very little in the show (so fans have, as Truth_Seeker said, "a lot of territory to cover and no canon to restrain" them), I feel like this story could be continued, at least, with a second chapter. But, it's your choce after all. If you ever decide to continue this, I (and several more?) will be waiting anxiously. And, if you decided to write this as a one-shot, then I just have to say that I'm glad I read it, and I certainly enjoyed it. A lot.

Whether it is on a new chapter or in a totally different story, keep up the good work! :pinkiehappy:

#46 · 121w, 2h ago · · ·

FimFiction needs a tag for "D'aw-Inspiring" stories like this one. Well done, 3.5/5 stars.

#47 · 121w, 2h ago · · ·

Ohh, Twilight, you have no idea, don't you?

I really d'awwwed at this, you did a great job with the TS/SA bigbro/littlesis dynamic. Hope to see more from you soon! :pinkiehappy:

#48 · 120w, 6d ago · · ·

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. It's heartwarming and adorable, the brother/sister relationship between the two. I really enjoyed this.

#49 · 120w, 6d ago · · ·

Shining armor just looks so derpy!

At least his coat is white,that way he can join the Royal Guard.I mean,with the way the selections are going,only white and grey ponies who look identical are accepted.The total military strength of Canterlot would be a whopping 23 at this point.   :rainbowlaugh:

But big fan of the story,I absolutely enjoy moral dilemmas. :pinkiehappy:

The way its all played out is just so in sync with what Shining Armor would do.So for that,I grant you a mustache. :moustache:

#50 · 120w, 6d ago · · ·

Nice story. The ending wasn't what it was made out to be, but made sense.
