Featured In7

  • ...

A grown-up Spike looks back on his life and on those who are no longer with him as the anniversary of a dear friend's death rolls around. Will he be able to deal with his grief and put the past behind him? Or will he need the help of someone even older?

A kind of follow-up to my featured fic "My Little Assistant"

#12 · 152w, 14h ago · · ·

i could feel tears wanting to burst out the entire time i read this story.  no story has ever done that to me before.  this was just amazing!! good job:twilightsmile:

#13 · 152w, 14h ago · · ·

I am crying as I write this.I have never lost someone before and really have no reason to cry at all, really but My Little Pony :Friendship is magic has to be an exeption.It makes me happy and brings pure emotion to me.I am eternaly greatful for being in the Brony fandom.I really hope someday I met a Brony freind in person.Cause it gets extremely loney being the only Brony in my family,possibly school.My parents dont know how depressed I really get..I am always feeling lonely and well I feel like an outcast at times.Strange how I can say this when im only 12 heheh.Well I love the story sorry of I sound depressed .It's cause I am .......But the Brony community brings a smile to my face and tears to my eyes.

Great story indeed. Thank you for this.

#15 · 152w, 14h ago · · ·

>>832226:pinkiegasp: *pinkie gasp*YOU PREDICTED THE FUTURE!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy:

#16 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

Incredibly well written. It has been a while since I've read something that made me feel emotion. This brought me very close to tears and considering my history, that is a feat worth writing about.

#17 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

This... This made me cry... There are few sad fics I read that make me cry. Some of them don't even make me sad in some way... You have earn any and all praise you get for this story.

#18 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

fucking brilliant this is on my mental favs along with tied #1 spot with my little dashie this is amazing it also brought me to tears :fluttercry:

and here is my reaction sorta

#19 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

This is literally one of the best, if not the best fic I've ever read in terms of raw emotion. >>832560 Yes, I agree this is quite comparable to My Little Dashie

#20 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

>>832580 this better get featured >:C

#21 · 152w, 13h ago · · ·

I can see why dragons do not live with ponys due to their long life span of 1000 years when pony can only live a hundred i think. But yea i cry whenever i see a story about spike being grown and such.

#22 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

Wow 3 hours Feature boxe nice work

#23 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

How come I get the feeling I've seen this before?

#24 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

>>832794 Because you probably have, I submitted this on Equestria daily a long time ago. It's not until quite recently that I started to get back into writing. I'm posting all my old stories here, then I'm going to write some new ones. It seems people like my old stories, and I'm glad some people, like you, remember them too :twilightsmile:

#25 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

Didn't make me cry, but only one fic has managed that. I'm stoic.  But nonetheless, great job.

#26 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

>>832804 Was it my little Dashie? That's like the king of all fics that make people cry lol I'll admit it made me cry :twilightsheepish:

#27 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·


Eenope.  I think it was a barely known fic that vanished off the site after it left the front page.  Something with... Rarity or something?  

#28 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

>>832800 People should never forget stories like these.

They're one of the rare ones to exist but the best to be read by the viewers.

Thanks for putting this up for us. :ajsmug:

That goes for My Little Assistant too.

#29 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

>>832842 Thanks, you're quite welcome, is it common for someone to have two fics in the feature box at the same time? I'm guessing it's not but I honestly don't know, I haven't been here long :twilightsheepish: All the attention I've been getting has been unexpected and awesome though, thanks everyone for reading!

#30 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

>>832854 You're right, it's not common, and it's not common to find fictions like these anymore.

I think.

#31 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

I'm glad you posted this here. Reading it again made me feel a little better than I was. Thank you.

#32 · 152w, 12h ago · · ·

Both fics are featured... it must be a sign. Spike is taking over the internet. :moustache::moustache::moustache:

#33 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

Hmm......Once I read "My Little Assistant" I'll take a look :pinkiehappy:

#34 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

:fluttercry: I had to stop halfway through because I couldn't read through my tears and couldn't wipe them quickly enough. Thank you, I really needed a good cry. this really improved my day, in some strange oxymoronic way.

#35 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·


I'm very stoic as well...

But why are my eyes leaking...? :fluttercry:


That was... intense. That's all I can really say, intense. I have to repair my emotional defenses now, after you just blasted through them. :pinkiesad2:

#36 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·


Have you considered that either:

A.  An assassin has fired a microscopic shotgun into your retinas.

B.  An android has infected you with a space-virus that makes your eyes bleed.

C.  You are attempting to squirt milk from your eyes, and failing miserably.

#37 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

>>833009 lol I really like the third one

#38 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

... Not 3 seconds before I read this I posted a comment in a blog that someone posted saying that they werent going to read this story... I told them that I would read it and not even let out a little sniffle... Well damn you, Indiference... Damn you to the deepest darkest depths of Hell... I'm not afraid to admit it, I cried while I read this...

#39 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

>>833025 Is it because that person is afraid of crying? Well, at least for you, I guess its MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!


#40 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

Who the hell thumbs downed this? The emotion in this is unbelievable! I was bawling my eyes out by the end of this. Wow, just wow, you sir an amazing writer and I hope you continue to make more great stories like this. I will be waiting patiently...


#41 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, especially compared to the other fics I've read. Great work! I wish I was I this good a writer.:fluttercry:

#42 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

After i was done reading this fan fic I looked at Grown up Spike pictures and found this

and then i cried

#43 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

Someone rated this down?! This shall not go unpunished!!! :twilightangry2::flutterrage:

#44 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

>>833080 Damnnnnn I've never seen that before... that's awesome. I didn't think people liked this fic THAT much when I posted this originally on EqD. I guess I was wrong... Thanks for posting that pic here.

#45 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·


That might be why they thumb-downed it. Their eyes are too damp, so they were unable to aim their mouse right and clicked the wrong thing by mistake.


Quite amusing, indeed.

#46 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·



#47 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

>>833098 Yeah, that is definitely the only plausible explanation. There is no possible way someone could *gasp* dislike this fic. It's impossible. :twilightangry2:

#48 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

I remember reading this months ago, and it was the only fanfic that made me cry.  After reading this again, I still cried.  This is one hell of a powerful fic, now I have to go dry my tears and read a happier fic.



#49 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

:fluttercry::raritycry::raritydespair::ajsleepy::pinkiesad2: IM IN TEARS!!

#50 · 152w, 11h ago · · ·

Not gonna lie...this made me cry.

I can't really express my "bravo"s right, so im just gonna write this

Good job
