[NOW RETIRED FROM WRITING FANFICS] I'm a Scotsman who liked to write stories, not all of which were of the self-insert variety.

Sequels2

E
Source

Princess Celestia has met many individuals whom she could call friends during her life. But given the fact she does not age like they do, she cannot bring herself to be there when they pass on. Still grieving after being forced to banish her own sister to the moon, she cannot face the prospect of losing those close to her.

Anthony, however, is the last human in Equestria; he is also the next to go. Now Celestia is determined to face her fears so she can be with him at the end.

Now available in printed form!

This story is a prequel to the Geoverse. I've added sequel information to reflect this.

it touched my heart.

Celestia can only keep her usual face for so long. :fluttershysad:

Good story!:twilightsmile:

I have yet to read the Geoverse, and honestly it never interested me at least till now, but the summary got me in.

After seeing those blasted human-slave fics this a breath of fresh air. You did good with this, capturing Celestia perfectly, and showing humanity at its best.

As a person who shares the name of the human...feels

"So even it takes a hundred years, or even a thousand, you will be able to see again all the friends you've lost."

Do you mean "So even if it takes a hundred years"?

I did. Thanks for noticing! :twilightsmile:

That was a great story:pinkiehappy:

Good story. With the ending at first i saw like what the hell a cliffhanger on a one shot; then I saw some comments about this being part of the geoverse. So now I have to read more tonight and by have to I mean get to.

Hey bud! Anthony is my first name dude! Wow! That description is what caught my eye, especially when I saw my name! :rainbowlaugh: I may have to give this a read now! lol!

i read this story listening to this

and i cryed my eyes out great job on this story.

I won't lie to you, the story was good and some what sad,. But the very last line

I didn't know it at the time, but this letter would ultimately end up changing my life forever.

is a good indication for a sequel even though you tagged this as a One shot.

But... there is a sequel.

3956526

This is the prequel to the entire Geoverse series. You can find a link to Part One in the 'Sequels' box on the right-hand side of the page.

Play this during his final moments...the combination made me cry so hard.....

My sequel sense is tingling....

I'd say you're alright at writing sad stories, a tear was shed in this story. :ajsmug:
... :ajsleepy:
...Okay, let's say atleast more than one tear was shed. :scootangel:

3960920 Lol! this comment made me laugh so hard! :rainbowlaugh:

There is a sequel. See the box on the right of the page.

It's an interesting idea. Not entirely canon-compliant in terms of Equestria's known history but that's part of the point of fan-fiction, isn't it? I suppose this is, in a way, nothing but a single-scene story about when it was Celestia realised just what it meant to be functionally immortal in a mortal world and the losses it would inevitably bring her.

Not so bad although far from brilliant.

Enough to send a nail in my emotional coffin.
Which is more than can be said for most.

3964217

Never mind the fact the sequel is also the first story I ever wrote. :trollestia:

3964798

I wrote this as part of the rewrite of said sequel, since I felt a bit more backstory was required. :twilightsmile:

"It's... it's happening."

This was probably supposed to be dramatic, but all I can see is Ron Paul and lasers. So there's some mood whiplash here.

Why did I have to read this. Now I feel like re-reading the geoverse main stories. Never really enjoyed some of the side-stories for some reason.

Thank you Geo just thank you.

4115998

Thank you, but I have to ask... What for? :twilightsheepish:

4117178 For being one of those who helps me to remember that not all humans are self-centered, sick minded, anarchists. I really need that sometimes, also thank you for the inspiration in joining this site and writing my story.:yay:

4117210

I have to admit that I did follow the 'Humans Are Bastards' theory when I first started writing. But then I remembered that we are indeed capable of doing good things.

Also, people complained about it. :rainbowlaugh:

And you're welcome for the inspiration.

4117228 I'm trully grateful to you Geo, and to Greatodyer you guys got me to read HiE in the first place, and that's what I'm writing for better or worse that's what I'll do, just help me to stay honest with myself will ya? It's hard to see the good behind all of the ugly things to many of us do.

Dawwwww. That's so sweet and sad at the same time.:applecry::rainbowkiss:

This was sad but good. Thank you for the story Geo. :rainbowdetermined2:

4117228 hay I know that I have been talk info to you today but pony vill didn't exist till to generations befor twilight happed and neither did cantorlot I do t know how you can possibly change or fix or whatever it but I know you can. Anthony. Rest in piece(es) humans are basterds lol:rainbowlaugh:

4575286

My universe, my rules. :trollestia:

4575502 got a point... Athou pony vill is to small to be more than three generation s old:rainbowderp:

Well I just read my first Geouniverse story and I have to say I'm intrigued.
The Leroverse/ Xenophilia is one of my favorites so it's gonna be interesting to see how this universe compares.

Now onward to the next Geo story!

4728276

Geoverse, not Geouniverse. :derpytongue2:

onto the story....nice preamble there, it was worthy ;P

A SEQUEL IS DEMANDED :flutterrage:

It has already been mentioned in the Author's Note at the bottom of the chapter that a sequel exists.

Sad, but the fulfilling type of sad. Thank you for writing this.

I've been reading your gallery for past two or three weeks or so and occationally commented
but I've started with Geoverse, because of VisualPony's audiobook and there is something that bugges me a bit

Anthony seesm to be Celestia's friend, and in story thereis said that humans helped ponies - but in Geoverse there is stated that they were enemies and waged war (even tough maybe Anthony was one of the good humans) - so can you clarify it to me?

thanks

In the first draft of To Friend Is Human, the humans of Old Equestria were complete and total bastards who waged war against the ponies for no discernible reason. A lot of readers complained about that so, when I rewrote the story, I changed it so that they were friends. Also, I should point out that this Prologue was written nearly two years after To Friend Is Human was published.

I hope this clears things up, but feel free to ask me any more questions if you have them.

6939611

It is Ok I guess
I know that this story is of later date
maybe Visual's audiobook was made from that first draft (I'll Admit that i didn't read that story, because I've been listening it and so I thought it is waste of time. I didn't imagined that it may be different version)

oh well
thanks anyway
