I have been a fan of Val's work since I first stumbled upon her stuff and I remember when Not Alone was posted. You did good with keep with her work, and merging the comic with Crystal Heart Spell. I do hope that you will tell Val about this, she needs to know about such an excellent take on her work.

Very well written and heart-wrenching, normally I am not much for the Crystal heart, but it was well worked in here and I liked the explanation behind Cadence's fear of rejection due to being different and the final scene was beautiful.
Also is there a link to the picture you used, because it is adorable! XD
The word kind/kindness was a tad overused near the end, though that's a minor point.

Excellent work :)

3165509 No problem! Because I couldn't give you your present in real life, I gave you one on the internet! :twilightblush:


A well-written story. Based on a well-written comic.

It looks like you tried to look at things from Cadence's point of view, but redundancy wrecked the "feels" to the story. (Giving the reader information that they could already could picture) Some parts could've also been tidied up a bit.

Still, thank you for posting this.

This was great. I always wondered what happened and how Cadence and Celestia came to be . Damn it my eyes are leaking WD-40.

I'm sad you didn't do anything more than rewrite the comic as a story. :/
