The Last of Us - BlackRainboom

Four ponies survived after a horrible virus wiped out the pony race either killing them or turning them into mutants who walk the streets at night. But this virus has a dark backstory and everything might not be as it seems.

Thunder Roller: The Note

Thunder Roller: The Note

Thunder Roller was in an abandoned Ponyville. Everyone had been killed by the virus by the time she and Rainbow had returned from Ponyville. They spent the night in Rainbows cloud house trying to comprehend what had happened. Rainbow was crushed that her friends had died. Eventually Thunder got a few hours of restless sleep before waking up at about seven. Rainbow was nowhere to be seen. She checked the entire house. No Rainbow Dash.

Oh my Celestia! What if something horrible happened!

Thunder Roller burst out the front door of Rainbows house and screamed.

"Rainbow Dash! Where are you?! Are you okay?!"

She got no response. Thunder Roller quickly swooped down into Ponyville and started looking for Rainbow Dash. She searched all day and all night to no avail. She searched in every building but in some she found horrible deformed ponies with flickering red lights for eyes. They would not come out into the sun for some reason. Dead ponies were everywhere. Her former friends. Cloud Kicker she found lying dead inside her house killed by the virus. Same with Vinyl, Octavia, Derpy, Lyra, Applejack, Rarity. All her friends gone. And the last friend she had was missing. Thunder Roller was panicking at this point, something she did not usually do. Rainbow Dash could have been killed by those mutant ponies flown off and gotten lost. Thunder Roller was running out of places to look but then she remembered one last place she hadn't looked.

The lake! Of course!

Thunder Roller flew off toward the lake as fast as her wings could carry her. As she approached she noticed something down on the shore of the lake. It looked like a rock from afar but as she got closer she knew it had to be a pony. It was Rainbow Dash lying face down and unmoving. She tried to tell herself it was something else. Maybe another Cyan Pegasus or just an illusion but as she got even closer there was no mistaking who it was.

Thunder Roller burst towards the ground landing near the Cyan Pegasus. She was obviously dead. A bullet hole through her head and a gun lying next to her. Also lying next to her was a note. Holding back tears Thunder Roller picked up the note and started to read.

Dear Thunder,
I'm sorry that I had to do this. But I just can't live the rest of my life like this. Without my friends. They meant the world to me and I can't live without them. I love you Thunder Roller and I'm sorry it had to end like this. But don't worry one day we will fly together again in pony heaven.

Rainbow Dash

Thunder Roller was openly crying at this moment the tears streaming down her face. Her last friend in this unforgiving world was gone. She curled up next to Rainbow Dashs body sobbing. And she stayed like this all night almost like a vigil over her friends body.

Thunder Roller suddenly jerked awake and a Turquoise light was shining from outside. And as she looked out in the distance she saw the unmistakable glowing ring of a sonic rainboom.

Either a mutant did a sonic rainboom or some other pony is alive.

Thunder Roller was giddy with excitement as she started packing her bags to go to the source of this rainboom and find possibly the only other pony left alive.

Author's Note:

If you can't tell that whole thing was a dream that Thunder Roller had reliving Rainbows death. Hope you like it! :)
