Confined to a hospice bed, Fluttershy has very little to do except remember. Prompted by a poster from more than fifty years ago, she begins reminiscing about Rarity, and the circumstances that led to her romantic feelings for the unicorn being never reciprocated the way she would have wanted them to be. Her remembrances slowly lead her to confrontation with a question that has lingered in her head since Rarity died--what becomes of a pony after death?

Inspired by the song “She Was the World to Me”, by Daniel Romano. Chapter titles are from the lyrics.

Editing and pre-publication assistance by Merrick, Midnight Blaze, ZaRaapini, and Norm De Plume.

Chapters (6)

After her second loss to Twilight Sparkle, Trixie has moved on, done the hard yards, and worked to be the best magician Equestria has ever seen. A small altercation with Spitfire, captain of the Wonderbolts, gives Trixie reason to question why they have "The Greatest Show in Equestria"

Takes place before Season 6, (as the idea was spawned around S4 and written in pieces, scrapped and re-written countless times since)
Initially was going to be a multi-chapter story involving the two, but I don't think I'm capable of writing something like that.
Comments, suggestions and ideas welcome, let's have at it.

Strange dreams are haunting the night in Ponyville.

The dreams are lucid and clear, indistinguishable from reality. And sometimes, when ponies wake up, the dreams don't go away.

Hallucinations stalk the waking world. Reality is bending in ways that Twilight Sparkle doesn't understand. But she intends to get to the bottom of this mystery and save Equestria from whatever is hiding in the dark.

Twilight Sparkle wonders, sometimes, if the pony in her dreams is the real her. If that is her soul laid bare.

She's about to find out.
