Listen to this and read, it didn't help that I was while writing it...
ALL OF IT IS BRILLIANCE!
Good work as ever P0nies, keep it up!
Just wanted to let you know, the title of this story was already used, in a story by P3rroHambre, here: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/37467/Never-Stop-Smiling Just wanted to help out.
That was beautiful and amazing. In before featured!
I haven't even read it yet, but I can tell imma cry.
Great job fleshing out the comic this was based off of, it's fics like these that are a reminder of how delicate our life is and how important it is to cherish what time we are given.
This is beautiful.
Oh man. I actually teared up worse than I did with My Little Dashie. This is an amazing story. Period.
Sir, you have given me feels. This is inexcusable.
The worst part is, I knew what was coming from the title and the picture. A wonderful story, I love that quote; it's one of my favorites. Thank you for a moving, heartbreaking story You have my fav, like and follow.
I watched the flash animation and... damn...
I'll be back with something to say about the story after I read.
>>12558951255895 I shall take any punishment for this inexcusable action of mine
>>12558301255830>>12558761255876>>12558001255800 Thanks you guys so much for the kind words
>>12557931255793 I understand what you are saying, but you can't always expect to have a different story name than someone else's story. But I feel it is an appropriate title, so it stays as it is. Thanks for letting me know about the story though.
Alright, I'm all done reading.
Very well done. This has a very strong connection with me, as a good friend of mine lost his daughter (I considered her my friend also) recently to a glioblastoma brain tumor. This story has me crying on my keyboard right now, the sentiment of "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." is probably the most important thing to remember for anyone that's lost someone close to them.
I would normally have some suggestion of how to improve the story a bit (I did have a couple thoughts, I swear), but I can't think right now. Maybe later, you seem to have broken my brain and my eyes are leaking.
>>12561651256165 First off, thank you. And secondly, That is sad what happened to your friend, and I don't know what to say. I have never lost anyone close to me, so I'm not going to go off and say I know what you mean or any of that. I do want to say from what I read, she was a real joy in this world. I give you, and your friend, my sympathies. Keep your head held high my friend, and thank you for reading.
... and sorry about your brain, and the busted pipes in your eyes.
Beautiful and touching. Thank you for sharing this.
>>12562021256202 i listened to this using...
I mean...im just awstruck. i had to get more of what this is then just "This is beautiful"
I wish there could be more to this story but there cant, that adds to its beauty...
I have seen the flash and no feels. I read this and no feels but here's the difference. If I had emotions, I know this would bring them. This better be featured for all that is good and pony.
Beautiful bucking story. Manly tears were shed. This better get featured damn it
>>12566091256609>>12564721256472 Thank you And as for the feature, I can only hope.
Manly tears of manliness. They have been shed.
Oh my god... why!? But great story though
Yet another story has brought me to incoherence upon completion.
You're an amazing person for writing this.
I'm sorry, but I can't take this story very seriously because this is the, what, third time I've seen that title?
Definitely heart-wrenching, but no tears were shed here.
I JUST discovered that flash yesterday...and now I see this today...
I haven't read yet but I plan to!
I can hardly shed a tear at anything around this time. I've read far too many sad fics. All that happens now is my eyes water up and my nose starts to get a little runny. Good story though.
I sat there, the blades of grass itching at my body as I played with the balls and other toys the nurses had put out here for us to play with.
Not completely relevant song but the situation is the same.
A very sad song with a respectable theme. It's rough to lose people (or ponies, in this case) close to you, and even if Pinkie doesn't know him that well before that life--well, she doesn't have to in order to care. Ever the caring, Pinkie does what she can to make his last minutes count, and it's good to know he could smile before his short life came to a quick end. I saw the comic a while ago, and almost cried, but nonetheless, it's a sad tale, and this is a good fanfiction for it.
Manly tears like a bawse!
Check this out, it is based off same fanfic as well :)
>>12529161252916 Dat song... helped me... As always
I totally love the story. Sad fiction is a great fiction I feel so sorry for Pinkie, losing her best friend...
this is truly amazing. so many people in this world need to be taught the ways of love and kindness. no im not refering to the fact im a brony im saying the truth. Your words combined with those of other sad stories have made me shed tears. I hope you don't think im just being modest, your words have moved me and i hope to see more stories like yours
One of the best fics I have read. Right up there with Bittersweet.
Many a feel were had while reading this story, such a great story
>>13772671377267 Why thank you, kind sir
i finally got around to reading this and your never on skype anymore D:
I had put this on my "Read Later" list when I first saw this fic posted and the awesome quote in the description, I've been putting this fic off for some time now, in case of an emotional breakdown of sorts. I'll just say I'm glad I read this during the night...
What I listen to when I read sad fics ^
This story has just taken the place of best story under 2,000 words. Great writing!
>>24338062433806 Thank you!
