Some memories never fade.

For Rainbow Dash, there's too much truth in that statement. The war, the fall of Cloudsdale, and especially the death of her closest friend all remain as vibrant in her tired mind as if it were happening to her for the first time.

Meanwhile, another has taken a forbidden road to escape the darkness in her past, and in doing so, she may plunge Equestria into darkness once again.

With everything on a silent path to destruction, the only one able to stop it may be too conflicted with her own feelings to save her home, her friends, her country... herself. Will she even be able to reach the answers hidden in the shadows?

After all... some things are best left forgotten.

This is the sequel to "The Eversleep". It is not necessary to read that story first.

great fic, read on EQD and now I can read it here too.

I'm glad you're enjoying it! If you or anyone else has any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you! :D

Nice, espacially that last part with Celsetia talking to Luna about taking Twilight away to make sure that nopony can use her to hurt anypony or herself. Reminded me a little of Past Sins, where celestia is talking to Twilight about Nyx and wanting to take her to make sure that she wasn't NNM.

Awww, phooey. Eqd has the story marked as complete, but I didn't realize Endless Sky wasn't complete yet.

Also, I keep wanting to reach into the story to shake Celestria and whine, "You're being controoooollllllled! Stop ittttt!". Shows how invested in the story you've gotten me. ::shakes a hoof at EvenMotion::

I'm glad to hear that you are still going to finish this story :pinkiehappy: Though i cant help you with the grammar or banner part :fluttercry:

I have very strong English literary skills and experience as both a prereader and editor; I would be happy to assist you if you wish. If so, please send me a message here on FiMFiction and I'll get back to you within a few hours. I should note that when not asleep, I'm almost always just a few hours away and able to communicate over IM or VOIP at ease.

Wow....Cant wait to see more :D

Yay an update on one of my fav fics:)
Gief back twillight/luna's kid cunning/cunnings brother!

And now the plot thickens, can't wait for the next chapter.

Thanks for thinking so highly of this story! I wish more people would read it or at least add some commentary as well. If I had pictures, it would probably help.


Finally read this, told you I would! And it. Is. Awesome.

Earlier in the story, I have to admit, I felt like this was really boring.
Now I can't stop reading.
And I want more...

Haven't started this yet (waiting for its completion first, damn e-book reader doesn't like it when I keep replacing the file with an updated one), but I noticed Twilight is a main character in this story? If this is a sequel to The Eversleep, how can that be? :twilightoops:

Why indeed? You should read to find out.

OMG wow. I have been waiting for this story since Eversleep.

Loving it so far. Why isn't there moar :flutterrage:

Just when I think I've got this figured out, you throw yet another turn into the loop. :twilightoops:. I can honestly say that I have no idea whatsoever what's going to happen.

How the hell do you keep track of all this?

I wish I had some constructive criticism to give seeing as you expressed a desire for some, but I really don't. Good work.

First off: glad to see that you're actively writing this again, and adding ANOTHER twist (I swear, this is turning into The Prestige).
Also: MOAR!!!

I also saw that you wanted more comments, while I usually wait till I'm finished reading something to comment... Well, a bit of typing on my part won't kill me, right? This has been quite excellent so far, and I only expect it to get better. Thanks for sharing your story with us. :twilightsmile:

I don't think you realize how much self-control it's taking to not start reading this. :pinkiecrazy:

I might have to break my rule of waiting for a story to be complete before reading it... :pinkiegasp: If it's anywhere near as good as The Eversleep, then I won't be able to put it down. That is, I shouldn't start reading it on a work night... :trixieshiftright:

Cannot wait for the next chapters! By far one of my favorite stories!

I do enjoy how this is progressing.
Consistently paced and filled with strife.

Yes, update! Love this story and glad its still going

There is more to come - there are several chapters being edited (namely, 4 more) until I'm caught up with where i am in writing. One more update today, at least!

I think I like this!


Cool! Glad you do :D

“I’m going with you.”
Twilight looked up. Rainbow Dash walked over to Twilight, staring at the princess. She raised an eyebrow at Dash.

Applejack stepped forward as well, “I’m comin’ too.”
The others each stepped forward in kind, surrounding their long lost friend. Twilight grinned even wider than before, tears welling in her eyes.

Oh my god, tears started welling up in my eyes. :raritycry:

That was so touching :heart:

Why must your story be so good? how am i supposed to be getting any work done when there's this to read?

Ahahaha Cunning has a morbid sense of humour does he not? :pinkiecrazy:

Awesome chapter :rainbowkiss:
Lunar Justice

Seriously. this should be season eight or something.

Just can't get enough of this. Read the whole thing to date in a day.


Yes. Yes he does.


Whoa! Even the first story? That's awesome! I'm glad you like it that much. :D

Lovin' every bit. I just started on it today, but already sunk a good few hours into all 23 pages, and it was so worth it. Watching, of course. :pinkiehappy:

Get ready for a wild ride, everypony.

Not quite sure why, but this reminds me of Game of Thrones (especially the Watch).

I got to chapter 4 before realizing it was a sequel. So, I read the first one, and continued this one. Loving the story thusfar. Very deep, with a lot of behind-the-scenes plotting and planning. it's proving to be quite the entertaining read.

*cough* Dragonborn *cough*

Gosh:pinkiegasp: this was a great chapter I wish I can read more but I have to work tomorrow. Night everpony I read more tomorrow. :pinkiecrazy:

*looks at updates*

Is it Christmas?

Kind of decided to check if this story also gets posted on FImFiction and not only googledocs (too bored to get an account to be able to comment on EQD).

Glad to see updates dude! I'll be getting through the rest over the next couple of days.

So Cunning possessed Celestia, or took her out and shapeshifted into her? Is she alive?


I thought I made sure it was clear in the beginning of 25. But if not, 26 will clear it up for you, guaranteed.

Well, I like the updates so far. Still hoping for a few flashbacks here and there, but I'll be reading whatever gets written, I suppose.

718437 Yes, even the first story. Maybe. I dunno.

I finally have time to read this chapter. I been really busy lately and don't really have time to read fan fics. Well anyway excellent chapter. I read the next one when I have time.

Hey everypony!

I hope y'all are still watching and waiting, because I need a bit of help. My main set of help has once again run into a bit of trouble. So for the five - and mean five - chapters that have been awaiting some sort of proof reading, they have sat waiting to be added on here. If anypony is willing to take a fine toothed comb to those and future chapters, I'd really appreciate the help. You can PM me here, and I will be forthcoming with links.

Hopefully you'll be seeing those updates soon!


I have one of my friends who does a fic. I'm not his official proofreader, but I do happen to find the things that his proofreader misses. I get very picky over misspelled words. Capitalization and punctuation and using the right word are some things that make my head hurt if not done right. I will be doing some field work and won't have access to a computer until the 30th of this month after today. But if you still need someone then I would be willing to help. I love your story and wouldn't mind being the first to read it either. I'll check back again when I get back home. :twilightsheepish:
