    Closure: The Many Sparkle Interpretation

    Don't you hate it when you're invested in a story and the writer just let's it peter off and die? Does it eat you alive to know that a plot you were following closely will never get the finale you were promised, leaving you with unanswered questions and unsatisfied curiosities?

    Yeah, me too. And, if you'll believe it, it feels even worse when that story is your own.

    Fanfic Reading

    So, I wrote a story a long time ago called Where Do Babies Come From?, in which Sweetie Belle struggles to uncover the answer to the very simple question in the title. Funny stuff, I assure you.

    Something New

    This wasn't what I intended to put out when I came back to this account. I didn't really know if I would come back. But, fuck it. I'm here, it's here, let's do this damn thing.

    It's spur of the moment and not totally thought out, but that's kinda been my MO since day one. Give it a look.

Closure: The Many Sparkle Interpretation · 5:50pm Nov 20th, 2021

Don't you hate it when you're invested in a story and the writer just let's it peter off and die? Does it eat you alive to know that a plot you were following closely will never get the finale you were promised, leaving you with unanswered questions and unsatisfied curiosities?

Yeah, me too. And, if you'll believe it, it feels even worse when that story is your own.

Just like with A Made Man, this story, The Many Sparkle Interpretation is unlikely to be finished. Unlike A Made Man, however, I didn't actually outline this story very well. In fact, I kinda forgot where I was going with it until I recently rediscovered some notes I had jotted down regarding the plot, and I was able to extrapolate the rest of the story based on the notes, what I already wrote, and the way I know myself to develop stories. So, while this might not be exactly what I had in mind when I originally wrote the fic, this is as close as we're gonna get to a proper ending for The Many Sparkle Interpretation.

Spoilers below.



Quick rundown of the story so far, in case you forgot (this is going to be super quick and vague because of the complicated nature of the story itself. You'll see what I mean).

Twilight Sparkle is one of an infinite number of Twilights across the multiverse. Our story follows one such Twilight (and her Spike), from dimension C-317 as she researches the potential of the multiverse. As she is approaching a breakthrough, she's visited by Twilight Sparkle X-215 (from henceforth, our Twilight will just be called Twilight, while X-215 will be called TX). TX recruits Twilight in helping track down a rogue Twilight, who's going around the multiverse and murdering fellow Twilights.

They go to the scene of the last murder and uncover a message from the murderer, Twilight S-169 (we'll call her TS). TS essentially taunts TX, hinting at some sort of past between them. Before this can be explained, TS steals TX's data mapping out the multiverse, giving her even more freedom to kill. TX leads Twilight to her dimension, Equestria X-215, in order to hide from TS whole they chart out a plan. They're summoned by Celestia X-215, who vanished TX from this dimension until such time as the murderer is apprehended. This is where we left off.

From there, TX would have met with the Council of Twilights, who instruct TX to find TS' Equestria and effectively nuke it off the map, killing trillions of innocents in order to save infinitely more. TX considers this, but Twilight doesn't allow her to go through with it. There has to be another way, and Twilight is determined to find the killer with minimal casualties. So, after his own volunteering, Spike ventures into TS' Equestria to search for answers.

There he discovers that TS (who had previously been thought to be killing because she lost her Spike) was actually trying to save him; TS' Spike was in some way injured by the dimensional travel, perhaps from falling through a portal without a "Container" (a device that keeps your molecules from exploding throughout reality whenever you cross the portal). Due to his injuries, he needs constant energy to power a machine keeping him alive, a machine that is charged by the energy that is normally used up by other Twilights; in short, TS kills other Twilights to siphon their life force over to her Spike.

As TX and Twilight race to save Spike from an approaching TS, it's revealed that the two dimension hopping Twilights were once partners, travelling the multiverse to keep order among the realities. After a miscalculation on TX's part, TS and both of their Spikes were presumed dead (with TS' Spike saving TS by giving up his Container). Spike and the 3 Twilights find themselves in a Nexus, a point in which as many feasible realities intersect as possible, a place that's very difficult to escape from. So difficult, in fact, that no one had ever done it before. As the three Twilights fight, their Containers are all damaged, leaving Spike with the only functioning device. Upon realizing their predicament, the three Twilights agree that the one they want to escape most is Spike, and they use the last remaining energy of their Containers to send him away. He tries to resist but the three Twilights overpower him and force him through the portal, content to spend the rest of time together knowing that, at the very least, Spike would live.

The story was gonna end with a twist that's honestly kind of silly and doesn't really matter in the slightest, to the point that I wasn't even sure how to properly convey it in the fic, but here goes: in an epilogue, Spike was going to be spat out in a new Twilight's castle, where she's sitting with her friends for lunch. Spike was going to see a Twilight that he knew wasn't his, all his close friends, and his one true love Applejack and begin to cry as the story fades to black.

Yep. The Twilight and Spike we were following this whole time wasn't even the "real" ones. They were an alternate version rather than the characters we see in the show.


And there we go. The Many Sparkle Interpretation. What was this story trying to say? That your perception of reality isn't necessarily the only valid one? That the universe is endless and chaotic and yet it is our choices and actions that truly make an impact? That what you believe to be real is just as valid as what you believe is fantasy?

Or maybe I just watched a lot of Rick and Morty at the time, and I just wanted to do something based on that. Might've had something to do with it.

In any case, this is chillbook1 from Earth L-369, hoping that this gave any fans of The Many Sparkle Interpretation a bit of closure.

This would have been neat, I guess, but yeah, sometimes the muse doesn't cooperate.

If I may, if you have a bunch of stories that you don’t think you’ll finish, why don’t you do what I did (or was on the receiving end of) and put them up for adoption? Let someone else take them over and see if they’ll finish them in a way you’d find satisfactory?

You could give them your notes/thoughts about the stories and either request that they finish them the way you intended, or allow them to take the reins (badum tss) and let them take them a direction they’d like better. That’s what I’ve done with A Daughter and Her Dragon. Crystal Moose gave me his blessing to take the story where I’d like, but my new outline doesn’t have me straying too far from the originally planned ending.

Just a thought.

This is almost similar to the jet Li the one movie

I appreciate the thought, and disparaging though this next sentence is going to sound, it is not reflective of my opinion toward anyone who does the whole adoption thing.

I'd rather chew freshly tilled field manure than give my story to anyone for them to finish.

I just can't do it. I need to have complete control of my story or else I lose it a little bit. Not that there's anything wrong with giving up your story or adopting a story yourself, it's just the kind of person I am.

At this point, I'm satisfied with this. The title of this blog isn't just referring to the story, but to myself as well: putting out the ending like this gives me a good amount of closure.

Thanks for checking in

Someone said that when the story originally released. I hadn't seen the movie then, and I still haven't seen it, so I'm gonna have to take your word for it

It is what it is. Glad you found it neat.

Understandable. I respect the fact that you want your story to stay in your own hands even if it means it doesn't get an official written ending. Some people would just prefer having a story written out rather than give out what's essentially an outline. That's why I took over the story the way I did. There were also reasons why Crystal Moose gave me the OK to make changes that I won't go into for the sake of time, but again, wanting to ensure your story keeps its own plot, even if it's summarized, is totally understandable.
