TiM: The Truth in Meanings - Twidashforever



TiM #1: If you had the power, how far would you go to save a friend, and would they hate you for it? Would you hate you for it? Actions have consequences and we are not always the ones who pay the price.

thank you for you comment!

as the first person to comment ill let you know, (not giving anything away but) Expect lots and lots of feels from the one-shot

the good kind :pinkiehappy:

Great story, I would help you with the editing of the other chapters but my comp broke and I only have my tablet
Sorry
But anyway as I said before an amazing story and a great job
I was very happy to help you by editing this

4107779

Her and Rainbow share approx 25% of Gaia's power

they could tag team one but no she could not solo one

only such a fight would cause any noticeable decrease in power

4108429

I am glad you liked it I had the last half of chapter 30 written two weeks ago.

It was a fun ride! I am happy its over and sad that its done. How does that work?

4108641

Not sure what ill do with 15 mustaches but Ill treasure them always :pinkiehappy:

I am glad you enjoyed it! I enjoyed writing it and am a little sad to see it completed.

the one-off is coming along nicely its going to be a day-in-the-life story set 6 years after ch 30, 10k words and it just hit noon… what have I done :twilightoops:

i dont remember who sirus was, i read i n last chapter and got completely confused. also amazing, hit me in the feels hard

CH 25 and CH 26 the Griffon Emperor

He almost declared war on Equestra over the event

Twilight promised she would turn herself over to him if she did not fix it.

the one off is done! let me know what you think

4115524

I promise you are in for a treat, the first few chapters are kinda heavy with grammar error, (I am working on it ch 1-2 are edited) but after that it gets GOOD

4118315

Had a hard time finding a word for relic of the gods

So I made one up… Cheating I know.

4118326 Ah I see, though all the Occuloi combined would be quite powerful, if the love of Twilight and Rainbow Dash is anything to go by considering they could destroy entire worlds together if they wanted, metaphorically and metaphysically.

4118721 takes a while but the payoff is worth the wait

HOLY CRAP! THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST TWIDASH FICS I'VE EVER READ! Aside from a few grammatical hiccups, this was a ridiculously amazing story! One of the best I've ever had the pleasure of reading. I would easily reread in a heartbeat! Good show, my friend!

4127466
Thank you!!
It was a lot of fun to write from beginning to end
Please check out the one-shot and sequal when you get a chance the links are in the description.

4111761 Thank you very much! Clears a lot up now

4128138 np

I know from exp that you can easily lose details in long fics, as such I am happy to clear up any such issues.

I hope you enjoyed reading! And if you haven't yet check out the one-shot and the sequal.

4141272

i am kinda of proud of that line actually lol

4137740

I heard of this before, I never verified it though, (also it never made any sense as when she achieved Mach 1,2,3,4 there would have been sonic booms for each one, something that never happened in the show) if you can, link the source of that math…

its largely irrelevant for the story. the point is she was moving really really fast… If its distracting just ignore any references to Mach (whatever) and pay attentions to number of Sonic Rainbooms

4141493

You finish?

What did you think?

that was an amazing story. a few typos but it did not detract from the story. absolutely loved the climactic end to everything. could not have been more perfect :twilightsmile::heart::rainbowkiss:
now on to the sequel!!

4152524

I just got a new editor and am working on the typos now.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I hope you enjoy the sequels as well.

Not to shabby for the first story I have ever written.

~Twidash on~
:twilightsmile::heart::rainbowkiss:

4212988 not sure why but ch 3 got unpublished somehow. I probably hit the wrong button

It's back up now


Sorry about that

4214833 you know your the only one I know of who got that. Lol

4219501
Glad to hear you enjoy it!

I honestly don't believe it really gets into its own until around ch 9-11. You are in for a treat.

I look fwd to what you think about it as you go along.

I was worried I overshot with Ch 3 when I wrote it, based on the feedback I got I worried about nothing lol

You are right you can't lol.

Good eye for detail btw, that becomes important later on.

4233192
Not to bad for a Tragedy hu?

4234101
Hey you got it lucky, the story is done.

You don't have to wait for me to write the next part lol

4235088 Nothing. They just wrote it off as me being in one of my depressing swings. To them, I swing from one extreme to another, and they think it's weird. They don't see what drives these swings, that they themselves drive my swings.

4238125

Just wait, 20,21 and 22 are some of my best work.

23 should be on that list too, but...

4240733

I did it twice, the first time was Luna telling the story of the prophesy, when I started writing it I quickly realized it needed its own chapter, (Hence the next chapter) the second was Rainbow just recapping what she knew/was told, (and what the reader already knew, repeating it felt redundant.) I haven't done it since then though.

Well, I guess that makes sense. You just made it seem with that second one that there was more to it than what we already knew. :twilightsheepish:

4240765
Does this read better?

In the back of the room, siting near the thrones was a cyan blue Pegasus. Blood covered over half her body. Rainbow Dash stared at the two princesses; who were both looking at her with their mouths a gasp. “What…what happened?” Rainbow asked. The hole Chrysalis blew in her chest was completely sealed, replaced by new skin and fur as if it never happened. Again, Celestia was reminded that nothing is impossible. Was this a victory after all? She did not believe that for one minute, the cost was too high, and would be increasing.

4240795 Yes. I believe you want to say "mouths agape" though.

4241110

“Yes Celestia,” replied Starswirl. Celestia cleared her throat before continuing, “the four primal forces of nature: Chaos, Gaia, Eros, and Tartarus. Each said to exist in union with the other four and said to have come into existence before the universe.”

“Correct, Celestia.” Celestia just grinned at that, sticking out her tong at Luna in playful banter. “And what do the four forces represent exactly? Luna knew the answer to this one and shouted it out before ‘Teacher's pet’ had a chance to reply, “Chaos is the force of change; it exists to ensure that everything continues to evolve and improve thereby reducing the threat of stagnation. Tartarus is the force of death and exists to ensure those forces that would disrupt the natural order never do so, it also exists to ensure that life would be sacred.”

“And how is that achieved Luna?” interrupted Starswirl.

“By having it be finite.” Countered Luna, grinning as Starswirl nodded at her to continue. “Gaia is the force of nature, the planet one could say. The one who grants us the magic we use and the spark that gives us life. The youngest, Eros, is the force of Love, it exists to help mortals overcome their own limitations, it is in many ways the strongest and weakest of the primal forces.”

And I repeat the question...

Anyway, let me get this straight... Gaia just killed Tartarus, because Eros could influence her in a mortal form, and Discord, being Chaos, knew all this, and possibly more, but decided not to lift a single talon to help?

4241255

Ah, ok you are referring to his history lecture.

Gaia just killed Tartarus ~ nope their gods, by their very nature they can't die.

because Eros could influence her in a mortal form ~ the answer to this will be provided, I will let you know if you want me to, or I will tell you what chapter(s) it will be covered in. your choice.

iscord, being Chaos, knew all this, and possibly more, but decided not to lift a single talon to help ~ you are on to something here, I won't tell you which parts though, (unless you want me to)

4241303

Alight man take care! Trust me when I say things will be very exciting going forward!

I am like you, I can't sleep in the heat either (texas was a bitch for me)

Just posted my latest chapter of Best of Intentions, Worst of Results… Ugh, the problem with big stories, after every chapter I feel like I have to make the next one better then the last… its a game of one upmanship with yourself.

4238125

Lol how has it been treating you?

Comment posted by Twidashforever deleted Apr 17th, 2014

4253633

Ch 13 has a bad ass one too!

Btw ch 11 of Bests of intentions is written.

I think it might be a contender for my best chapter ever

It will be up tonight!

4254875

So...does Rainbow still feel emotion?

Yes, her mind is fine. her body is not.
you can poke her with a pin and she won't feel it, however, she might get pissed if she sees you do it.

Train doesn't need to be capitalized.

corrected all three instances. :derpytongue2:

She and Rainbow Dash again. It helps to isolate the subjects. If they don't sound right in the sentence alone, then they're not correct.

corrected.(you might see this more :facehoof: )

I just put the corrections in that quote. The first one's a comma.

Corrected.

thanks!

4255057

Was the repetition here purposeful? :rainbowhuh: It's something you may want to fix, if not.

good catch, that was something i missed, changed to:

The other wolves’ instantly recognized the new threat. They attacked Twilight as one solid unit, and they did not stand a chance. Twilight's analytical mind formed a plan before the wolves took a second step. She glanced over to the second cliff face and with a wave of her horn picked up the entire side, dropping the twenty-ton rock face on top of the Timberwolves. “Get up from that,” snarled Twilight.

Anywhere, not nowhere, and there's a double negative there...but I never actually got the big deal about those...

changed to anywhere, however I like the double negative about her not, not liking it. it feels more like something Rainbow would think… I also think it adds more weight to the scene.

good eye btw!

4255291
Never seen that before. Laughed my ass of though…

4256397
only three afterlives, heaven, hell and purgerty.

I 'Think' i did a good job on their contrasts.

4256577

Ya, when I released i was playing in the realm of gods, I knew Rainbow would need 'something' to keep her relevant.

Not that i fully stopped beating up on her mind you :rainbowhuh: ,however, story wise those wings have been so much fun to write.
