Amateur fanfic writer and reader. Sometimes I get dreams, dreams of ponies, and wish that someone would write a story based off them. So why not me?

If she had been a good little filly, she would have listened to her mommy and daddy and her teacher and the esteemed mayor of Ponyville. If She had been a good little filly she would have stayed indoors, hiding under her bed as she waited for the Royal Guard and the Princesses to arrive and deal with the dragon. If she had been a good little filly, the kind of child that always got what she wanted for Hearth's Warming, she would not be on the trail leading up the mountain, to where the dragon now rested.

Glitter Belle is not a good little filly. She is a curious one, whose curiosity has brought her face to face with a very, very large dragon. Let's hope it's in the mood to talk.

You made a non emotional person feel.:pinkiesad2: Well done my friend.:moustache:

:pinkiesad2::fluttercry::applecry::raritycry:
I 'm not sure if I should let my baby dragons read this one. They like Spike so much.
But it is a wonderful story

oh god! my feels! :fluttershbad:

So beautifully bittersweet. You should be proud of this.

I'm a little disappointed it took me almost two weeks to finish this.

I wonder...where would the conversation have gone if Glitter Belle had told Spike her name? Would he have reacted to the "Belle" part?

While I didn't start crying or at least feel the need to, as has happened in many stories I've read, it still hit me right in the heart... Nicely done!
:fluttershysad::pinkiehappy:

Speechless. This sums up how I felt as I said on.

:fluttershysad: ... :fluttercry:

Great story man. sad as hell but nice.

Well that gave me a spike in the emotions (No pun intended).

I'm not too proud to admit that I cried.

Thank you for writing this story.

I don't believe you:trollestia:. That was totally intended.

You're welcome:heart:

That was beautiful. :fluttercry:

Well done, Mess.

Aww, that was sweet and sad. Good job!

Okay, I am certain at this point that every author on this site is working together to make me cry...

This is the fourth one-shot in a row that was able to work up my emotions today.

That wasn't exactly sad. It wasn't tragic because this ending of this version of the whole story isn't a bad or sad one. I suppose that the best words to describe it would be depressing and thought-prodding, kinda like :pinkiesad2:.

I still have not cried after I read any story yet, so I'm proud.

~Clay the Draconequus

Huh...that was a gut shot. Good job, this was a great story for how simple it was.

Rest in peace, Spike.

Great story, wanted to know more about little Glitter belle but I guess this was how it was ment to be. One question though, wasn't Twilight supposed to be an immortal alicorn? Or does it not work that way?

I'll be sure to ask Knightly to add a depressing/thought-provoking tag the next time I see him. Until then, you'll just have to contend with 'sad'.

Fun fact: Glitter Belle is based on a previous gen pony called Glitterbell.

One of the writers tweeted that Twilight would not outlive her friends. That either means A. Twilight is not immortal or B. her friends will all become Alicorns. Personally, I prefer scenario A.

This is Spike done right.

Bravo!

The feels. I'm crying, that last line of Spike's about making one last friend... :raritydespair::raritycry:

Personally i see dragons or at least spike type being immortal ( but can still die from like a nuke).

The Feels :fluttercry: So much feels in this story :raritydespair: So many feels :raritycry:

This is good. Like, REALLY good.

Not cried yet, huh? Have you read The Keepers of Discord?

If you can continue your record after that one, you are of a stronger cast than me. Or just kinda heartless. Or maybe both. :derpytongue2:

3953914 I can't intentionally pun even if I tried.

And so they did go on a journey, to the Undiscovered Country, from whose bourn no traveler returns.

A delayed story is eventually good, a bad story is bad forever.

I didn't get the point of the title image until I read the story. Very clever imagery there, well played.

Fun fact: I originally based this on the quote from Inception:

"You're waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope the train will take you, but you can't be sure. Yet it doesn't matter. Now, tell me why?"

"Because we'll be together!"

Nothing really changed, except for the title.

DaaaAwww! I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad, overall...

Dude. fuck. Just. Gosh dang. It was a nice story up until

"They were, but eventually they left. They all took a trip, to some distant place and forgot to bring me along, as usual."

That cracked open my insides, and it was only more crushing sadness from there. I can't take these terribly beautifully depressing Spike fics.

I never cried this hard since The Last Crusade.

Thank you, for this beautiful piece of art.

>>>Today, she was swiftly growing into a cautionary tale to be told to naughty children in order to instill the importance of listening to authority, least you be devoured by hungry dragons. If the strong likelihood of her becoming just another statistic categorized under the epidemic curiosity bothered her, the filly certainly didn't show it.>>>

In scientific circles, this is what we refer to as 'natural selection at work'. I hereby nominate this filly for a Darwin Award. :trollestia:

Well, that was a sweet little story.

It's nice to see one dealing with death that isn't filled with despair. :twilightsmile:
