"Who are you? Where am I?"
"Am I...dead?"

Rainbow Dash explores the darkest recesses of her soul. Can she handle the truths of her past and her present, or will breaking the walls she has spent a lifetime building be more than she can handle? When one must come to terms with who they are, It can lead to a painful rebirth or an empty death.

Essence of a sunrise: That which is left behind

First you had my curiosity, Now you have my attention.

Oooo, another new one, maxxxxxxie?
I'll check it out when I finish work.

3688287 I'm glad you're enjoying my story and thanks bunches for reading :twilightsmile:
(that's just the reaction i was hoping for! :pinkiehappy:)

3688297 thanks cerulean i actually think this is my best story yet in every aspect. hope you enjoy :twilightsmile:

Looking forward to it.
Maybe I'll find another mini review piece on my fic, too? That'd be a nice surprise :raritywink:

Whoa....mind blowing. I'm just gonna keep an eye on this story and see what happens next. I was curious by the description and now......it has my attention. If a cat dies, its only because I was curious.

When I saw this in my feed, you had my curiosity. When I read the chapter itself, you caught my full attention. Will definitely watch the story to see where it goes

Welp, this definitely has my interest now. Congratulations, you've finally earned my favourite for a story, if only for the volume of work you've put into your writing in the past six weeks. You're persistent, I gotta give you that. You've got great ideas and I admit your grammar IS getting better, but I still can't grade you higher than about a 6.5 for it. Still, it's a far cry better than the 3 I gave you for Purity.
Oh, and cheers for the watch too, you just got me to 50! :pinkiehappy:

Hot damn.... I'll... Just put my reactions in emotes as I really don't have many words for this aside from this is definitely wasn't what I was expecting when i posted on that thread of your's but that's a good thing ::rainbowhuh::derpyderp1::fluttershysad::applecry::pinkiecrazy::raritycry::raritydespair: Bravo and continue this because it's pretty good.

3688913 hooray!:pinkiehappy: and i'm glad i got you to a nice round number on your watches :twilightsmile: as always, thanks for reading and i'm super glad you enjoyed this one, and thanks for the favorite and all your super helpful reviews and tips :twilightsmile:


3691376 I'm doing the second chapter right now :twilightsmile:


wow. Rainbow is getting dissected piece by piece. I want to know where you are planning on taking us. well Dash completely collapse, our will she be able to hold on to something?

3693334 all i can say is that i have the most incredible ending planned :twilightsmile:

I wouldn't expect anything less.
*runs to get a chair*
Dis gonna be GOOD!!!!

So, I found another story that works very well as a companion to this.


3693516 thanks for the cross pollination i guess :applejackunsure:

Damn.... You know, its almost painful watching RD get psychologically dissected because she's best pony(too me atleast), but this story... I won't stop because its so damn good hehehe

3693565 Well, I was reading one when the other floated across the front page, and I found myself thinking that they go well together. Guess we'll see if the endings fit or not, but never a bad idea to stir the readership pot a little, right?

This is getting real deep, maxxxxxx...

3697993 third chapter incoming in... half an hour at most:twilightsmile:

3699529 holy crap if what i see from the comments it's really good hey maybe if ask people will willingly join the group :rainbowlaugh:::rainbowlaugh::moustache::moustache:

watch Substitute Teacher on YouTube. I was just making a joke about how the ghost/guilt trips are saying rainbow messed up everything. it reminded me if this guy.

3700959 by the way the 4th chapter will be done tonight

3700969 you have no idea how happy you have made me! That post is better than all the candy I ate today. and I ate some really good candy!

This is giving me a lot of feels so far... I feel so bad for Rainbow Dash, and I just want to hold her so she can have a shoulder to cry on...

Otherwise, noticed a few grammatical errors, but those can be easily fixed

3701549 i'm only half done breaking my favorite little Dashie... my next chapter is actually my favorite that i have planned out besides the ending... It will be up in about an hour...

Words can no longer describe how this story is making me feel... Poor, poor Rainbow Dash...

3701569 I don't know if I can take any more... I love Dash so much and this story is breaking my heart... But I must go on.


I got inspired by your story, that it made a PPG comic about it. Hope you don't mine. But if you do, I could delete it.

It's here, btw. http://itsanothermodblog.tumblr.com

3704583 do i mind? No way! i'm so glad you liked my story enough to draw that up. it's great, an honor really. I hope you continue to enjoy my story and good job on the comic, you kind of nailed the atmosphere and expressions i was going for :twilightsmile:

NO RAINBOW, NO!!! DON'T GO INTO THE LIGHT!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :fluttercry:

3707409 ummm... NO

3707551 good because there are still five chapters left until the end. The next chapter will be out tonight:twilightsmile:

If I wasn't half asleep and I didn't have work to do, I'd read this. Back tomorrow when I can focus on words. Will give a full review then. Stay tuned.

3709532 i understand about the sleep thing.. i once tried to read a story drunk on no sleep... didnt go well.. anyway thanks bunches preemptively for the review:twilightsmile: hope you enjoy

Wow this makes me think about what I have done and said to hide from how I feel thank you for this and it's not even done yet can't wait for more

3709630 i'm so glad you enjoyed it so much and that the story is having the effect on my readers i was hoping for it to have, it makes me really happy to hear that. :twilightsmile:
I intend to be finished with this story by the end of the week (doing one chapter per night)
anyway, the ending will be (i hope anyway) truly moving. At least, that's how i feel when i think about it

3709697 you are going to kill us all with feels. :raritycry: :raritydespair: :applecry: :fluttercry: :fluttershysad: :pinkiesad2:

I've already said it, so I'm not going to again. You already know the impact this is having on me
