When the light dims and the flame burns out, the magic inside us all will forever endure.
this made me mad and then made me cry and then made me smile in ten seconds flat i wish there was a rainbow salute icon on fimfiction cause i'd give it to u
just take my internet please? I sure as hell don't need it after this. Now if you'll excuse me I gotta go get a hose to get all this tear water outta my house
>>154510154510 & >>154573154573 & >>154583154583 I cried earlier than first!
Thyrai, you're an amazing, amazing bastard. Have some internetz, plus all my money.
I got nothin' else. Except for that ending. So hopeful, yet it keeps with the dark mood of the story nonetheless. That filly will grow up to do great things.
This is just...beautiful. I-I promised I wouldn't cry...
my grandmother passed away last week, she was a good friend to me, and all those around her. and because of her, I believe we are all given the same amount of time on this world, but our actions are what cause the time to speed up, and slow down, and I believe she gave so much of her time to other people, she had no time left for herself, but even so she gave every second she had to others. this reminded me so much of her I was in tears by the end of it.... I love this story.
sorry for the rant, but sometimes you need to say things.
I am afraid to read this because it can induce tears... On a scale of 1-10, how bad can the stuff that causes crying in this be?
This is THE FIRST STORY THAT EVER MADE ME CRY!
dam it dam it dam it
you sir are just that ....epic
Many manly tears have been shed this day. BRONIES! RISE. TODAY, WE REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN. THESE FIVE PONIES HAVE TAUGHT US ALL ABOUT FRIENDSHIP, MAGIC, AND MUFFINS. NEVER FORGET WHAT THEY DID FOR US. WITHOUT THEM, WE WOULD HAVE NEVER COME TOGETHER AS ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN FANBASES ON THE WEB. BROHOOF!
I currently hate you for how good this is.
that was just beautiful I can't even begin to thank you enough for writing this.
PS. after reading another story about the passing of friends I wrote a letter to Celestia telling what I learned from it and I would like to share it with you because this story reminded me of it and if I didn't already write the letter I would have after reading this.
Dear Princess Celestia,
Today I learned that when you lose somepony close to you, like a best friend you shouldn't be sad,
even though losing somepony may be hard and it may hurt you inside, you might be able to learn something by looking back at your friendship
and seeing what you have been though together and what you learn and remember may in fact be beautiful,
so don't cry over the loss of a friend just remember all the fun times you had together and just remember friendship is the best magic there is and nothing will ever change that
your loving subject NimbleBolt.
As much as it made me cry, I loved Decay. And I loved this, even more so when I found out it was an unofficial sequel to it.
Confound these ponies they drive me to sad fics.
I don't think I can say anything that can do this story some justice. Simply because it was so beautiful. Sad but beautiful. You kind of touched upon a fear that I once had; that I would be the last one standing amongst the ones I loved. But it's something that I don't fear anymore. Love and friendship really can transcend anything, even death. As a stand-alone fic, this worked out really well. Though I think it could have also worked as the epilogue for Decay. But I'm not going to question your reasoning, as the end result was, for lack of a better word, magic. Marvelous job on this, and while I'm at it, Decay as well.
So sad I could barely finish it... *Sniff* Five stars for you friend
Oh my freaking God, I'm trying not... to... okay, you've done it. You've written a story that makes me cry, but makes me extremely happy. I love this story. % stars. A favorite. Money. I don't know what else to do.
You are a warrior poet stabbing my emotions to the point of tears(NON-MANLY tears)
Amazing. One of the most beautiful Fan fictions i've ever read.
Am i heartless bastard for not crying here?
Amazing fic tho. Loved it from start to finish.
i WON'T! Great story !!! and it even hinted at the best shipped pair!
Keep on writing you are great at it.
It's... I'm not... I just have something in my eye, okay?
there is not much i can say yes manly tears have been shded i stated reeding sad fic with the pric you pay but i alwas love a good sad/dathe fic so good job
Five stars. You really captured emotion in every sentence. What an excellent read. I thought of doing something like this, but since you've already done it, and brilliantly, I might add,I think I'll do something different.... -plots-
I loved every bit except the slight Rainbow-Twilight, because I'm not a fan of pairings, but whatever floats your boat!
I wish people were that eager to pre-read my stories.
I'm back, with an announcement. After reading this, who can call their tears manly tears?
"And the magic never fades..." great ending to a great story... showing that the magic will never fade & end....
What the hell is this thing I have in my eye...
5 stars well earned
This is wonderful. Keep up the good work. This is a wonderful finish to Decay, hope you'll come up with something else soon.
This is the first fic where I could feel tears in my eyes. Beautiful absolutely beautiful. I wish I could give it 100 stars but five will have to do.
You broke me, I've got absolutely nothing left in me. I don't read sad fics, I can't it usually hurts. However I neede something to distract me from studying. I made it all the way to he end, then read the final line and began to tear up. This was beautiful, in fact I can't express how this made me feel using words.
Thank you for writing this.
MANLY TEARS WERE SHEED HERE
"A song of magic that never fades away."
5 million tears
dammit thyrai, between this and Decay you make me cry too much ;-;
But you are a fantastic author
Got through like, five paragraphs. I just can't do it, this is exactly why I don't read "sad" tags. Amazingly written, but that's probably one of the reasons I dislike sad tags. They're written so well you almost believe it.
I like this... It's odd, but A LOT of sad fics are coming out.....
Well i'll be damned. The SOB can write. Well done, and know that i now hate you forever and ever.
God I wish i could cry >:(
Only three things in this world can make me cry, My Little Dashie, This Story, and Fluttershy.
This was sad, but this was HAPPY sad, the way sad stories are supposed to be! You know, the ones that give us hope and all that frou-frou feeling stuff at the end.
I had to read it in chunks because my vision kept blurring. How did you manage to write this...?
I'm off to read Decay and probably watch you. Yes, in the creepy way.
i love this story thank you
There isn't enough spamming of the laughing rainbow dash to execute how hilarious this story is to me. Superb writing, all the way, author! Keep at it!
wow... i never thought that a single story of this length make me cry twice . Outstanding work
And of course I was listening to Debussy's Clair de Lune while reading this...
