I usually have something witty to say but for the love of Bat Ponies, this is ridiculous. So have a quote. “We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?” — The Doctor.


We all have that someone or a close group of people who connect us to the world, but what are we to do when they're taken from us one by one?

Such was the case with Twilight and her friends.
A couple of years after becoming a Princess she had to deal with losing a close friend of hers every few years or so, but things are easier when you have the ponies you can share stories with about the one who passed.
Pinkie leaves one last letter to Twilight asking her to be strong in the knowledge that they would all be re-united someday, and that her friends would all be awaiting that day.

This fic... This fic managed to make me cry a little :fluttercry: And that is no small task....
This fic is truly a masterpiece in my eyes

Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go cry some more


Don't let the comment mislead you; it was a very good story. I just don't know why I willingly read stuff like this. :pinkiesad2:

And the the tears flow. Congrats on a very good story.

Lie down. Try not to cry. Cry a lot. :raritycry:

A random thought occured to me that too made me sad and a bit confused. It seems Pinkie lived with the cakes for her entire life. Why didn't she set up a family of her own?

Just.....truly touching on a personal level. Everyone at one point looses someone close to them, and this was in many ways almost a perfect summary on how one should look at loss. Bravo.

2965277 Well, you see I was actually planning on adding something where she talks about it and about how since she never really found a stallion or mare that she'd like to spend her life with, after Mr. and Mrs. Cake dying, she just helped Pound and Pumpkin through their lives and helping keep Sugarcube Corner running, but then I completely forgot about it. :facehoof:

That's what I kept in mind while writing this. But I suppose if you want to take it in a way where she did meet the love of her life and get a family of her own, she just never mentions it because she didn't wanna muddle it all up with things unnecessary to her letter, you can!

Does that help? :twilightsmile:

Heck, I teared up a little and I very rarely ever do so.
So thanks for reading and i'm happy you enjoyed it!
If you change your definition of enjoying to tearing up. :twilightsheepish:

Yes, feed me thine tears that I might become stronger!
But thank you all for the kind words :scootangel:

I hear ya, I subject myself to this stuff nearly every day :pinkiesad2:
Thanks for reading and feeding me your tears though! :pinkiecrazy:

Thank you! This being my actual first story, you wouldn't believe how nervous I was about how I did, and I can be very paranoid at times :rainbowlaugh:

I cried.:pinkiesad2: I cried. You are a master writer.:pinkiesad2:


This was a really good story! I suggest you put this in lightly sad, though. Not very... heartbreaking.

Stahp. You'll make me melt into my chair.
Master Writer?

I wouldn't go so far xD

And no matter happens, remember to Smile, Smile, Smile!



Very nice work, you captured Pinkie's personality well in that letter. I can't imagine her being upset about her own death, but rather accepting in that it would arrive eventually.

One of thing things I'm a bit confused on is if Twilight is supposed to be immortal or not. You give hints in the story where this may be the case, so I assumed that this was the case. It also would make sense as it was implied Twilight would outlive her friends.

Overall, I liked the story, a lighthearted sad story that at times made me feel for Twilight while also seemingly smiling at Pinkie Pie's... Pinkiness. :pinkiehappy:


Looks like I achieved what I was going for.
As for Twilight's life span, I couldn't bear the possibility of her living alone forever and just wishing she could see her friends some day.

What I figured was, since Twilight wasn't born naturally with every property of an Alicorn and got them later on in her life, she would have every aspect gifted to her like with her wings but some of them wouldn't be as strong as it is with Celestia or Luna. Like her life-span, let's say that the ascension unlocked her full magic potential and that she were granted long lasting youth, but like I said earlier they wouldn't be complete. Her life-span if therefore only extended and she isn't stuck in eternal youth.

....Did I make any sense at all? Like, really? :rainbowlaugh:


Hop aboard the feel train!

2970157 I see what your saying. Being an alicorn she has the longer lifespan, she has the ability to live much longer, but since she wasn't born as an alicorn, she isn't immortal.

Is that right? :twilightsheepish:


Yes! Thank you! I understood that better than I did my own words! :pinkiecrazy:
But yeah you got that right xD

Pinkie will be pinkie. This made me feel fuzzy and warm inside and though it was touching you sort of soothed out me just like pinkie also did to twi.

My feels while never be effected by something of this caliber.

Classmates talking about their friends last words as they died of a bullet wound yes.

This... Ima rock


....I'm confused MY headache is being too much of a douche for me to understand that...
Mind giving me a summary of that? xD



I = No feels from this

You = Good story


Thank you. That helped.
Happy you enjoyed it though :twilightsmile:

Now that's just too much, I would understand a simple sentence :rainbowlaugh:

Jeez, you gotta learn how to spell! Luna isn't spelled Pinkie Pie!
