These are a collection of stories dealing with an older revisit to our faithful Bearers of the Elements of Harmony, where their lives have been, what they made of themselves... and how they will end.

EDIT: Now with new cover art, drawn by http://tenchisamoshi.deviantart.com/

Ah, there's nothing like the feeling you get from reading a beautifully sad story. That feel of tears building up in your eyes, sniffling slightly as you feel your heartstrings get tugged on ever so gently.

I rarely give out 5 star ratings, but this is one of those stories that clearly deserves it. Well done; I look forward to reading the rest of the chapters.

Colt-dammit, this is so freaking good! Beautiful, simply beautiful! 5 stars!

oh my god, its being posted here, does this mean a new chapter is on the way?

this is like the saddest story ever, especially rainbows and fluttershys

This...I hope the final chapter brings them all together again...they should be together in death as well...thank you for writing this...

Think I remember enjoying the Rarity one (which isn't up here yet) the most out of them with Rainbow's coming in second... don't remember this ever really finishing up (or feeling like it did at least...), but what went up was pretty brilliantly done.

:fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

I just finish reading Our Last Goodbye, and I don't feel sad at all. Then I ready this, and now my tears can't stop falling.

That's interesting - The Rarity one (which will be up here, don't worry, but not until the next one nears readiness) is a hit and miss affair for some. It's a different type of ending, in a way, than the others.

The challenge is telling a beautiful, fulfilling story that doesn't just do the same job in the same way each time.

:fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttershysad::fluttershysad::raritycry::raritycry::raritydespair::raritydespair:

This is the saddest story in all of Equestria. May Fluttershy dance forever.

I can't stay away from this series. It captivates.

well im in tears just as bad as the first time, now whens the next chapter out

:raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair:

God dammit I'm crying now.

It was... beautiful. The story had managed to grasp my heart from the very beginning, and I've read all the chapters in one sitting (a thing rather unlikely for me!).
I can't, really, I can't wait to read how the story will continue!

for some reason, after pinkie learned that her granddaughter could burp out the alphabet, i had a feeling that she'd want her to do that.

also:ajsleepy:, i am very sad at the deadness of pinkie pie. the sadness shall make more sadness until the sadness causes mor deadness, which shal-DAMMIT PINKIE! EVEN IN DEATH,WHY DO YOU CAUSE MY BRAIN TO DO THIS!

Foreshadow- BURRPPPP! -ing!

Ah, thank you for reminding me why Pinkie is my favorite pony. Best installment yet, in my humble opinion.

I always knew pinkie would go out with a bang.

Twilight no! :fluttercry:
DON'T GO INTO THE LIGHT! DON'T! :raritycry:

QUIT
MAKING
ME
CRY
I'M RUNNING OUT OF MANLY TEARS :raritycry:

regardless of how many times i read this series they all make me cry like a baby, the first time i read the first one ages ago was th first time i cried in years, you are a brilliant author and i cant wait to see more from you in the future

Confound these ponies and their awesome fanauthors. They make me cry manly tears.

This is a great installment! I am in love with this seiries :pinkiesmile:

This series is going to be the death of me, I'm sure of it. It's well-written, moving, the OC ponies all mesh flawlessly, and it captures the likenesses of the Mane 6 perfectly. At first I thought that nothing would make me cry more than Dash's successful attempt at one last blaze of glory, but I was wrong. Pinkie just couldn't die like everypony else, she had to have fun with it.

In short: :fluttercry:

This chapter destroyed me :fluttercry: . Dear, sweet Celestia, I feel like I need a glass of scotch, a hug, and then maybe another of both. The whole thing was excellently written, particularly the reactions of the remaining Mane 6 as they saw what they knew to be the last Sonic Rainboom.

Leave it to Dash to go out like a champ.

Fluttershy's and Twilight's, that's twice i've shed tears for this accursed beautiful story

This is truly fantastic. These death scenes are getting carved in stone in my headcanon. Well done, sir or madam. Well done indeed.

This story has been simply incredible. Pulls at the heartstrings so sweetly. I am not ashamed to say that I cried while reading each chapter. The depth of the characters really pulled me in. Death comes for us all, at some point. May Fluttershy dance forever, may Rainbow Dash fly through the heavens, may Twilight sparkle brightly, may Pinkie party until infinity, may Rarity be at peace, may Applejack rest sweetly, and may they all be reunited together for their final journey. :fluttershysad::heart::fluttershysad:

Dammit, now I want to see Fizzy Pop for reals in the cartoon. Best OC creation EVAHHH*BRAAAAAAAP*HHHHH!:pinkiehappy:

I think I've read too many sadfics. I'm ashamed to say I didn't cry, although I was getting close. This chapter was so beautifully written, so bittersweet, that I can't help giving this 5 stars.

I honestly can't imagine writing something of this depth

I just finished reading these, my hat's somewhere outside on the ground (throwing it to the floor didn't seem to suffice, good thing i live on the third floor :rainbowlaugh:) Many laughs were had and tears were shed.

I kinda figured Pinkie-ness skipped a generation. Pinkie got the laughing advice from her grandmother, yet I'm sure everyone reading this has seen what her parents are/were like. And now, Pinkie's daughter is a near-prude, and her granddaughter is silly.

On top of that, this chapter is definitely full of Pinkie. She turned a stone tower into a battle rocket! And that soda incident at the will-reading is definitely something Pinkie Pie's last request would likely be.

Very well done. I wonder, though, will we see a chapter concerning Applejack in more detail? If not, perhaps the story should be marked as complete?

AJ's story will come next, and last.

Such great stories :scootangel: . I guess you save the best for last :ajsmug: .Still take your time, working on so many great stories at once takes talent, and talent is something you have to spare :moustache: (wow I sound corny :facehoof: :trollestia:)

I kinda figured. Just thought you might have abandoned it since its been so long since the last chapter is all.

Awwwww....

That was so like Fluttershy

Midnight, That truly was a beautiful story. This is for many reasons.

1.You portrayed the characters perfectly even at old age!...especially Pinkie.
2.It was perfectly written
3.It gave the reader the ability to actually cry...I held it in as much as I could...but Until I heard pinkies damn song....I LOST IT! :applecry::applecry::applecry::applecry:
4. ...You know what....there are too many reasons..so i'm just going to stop there :P

Very well done, I expect good things from you!

I am not joking when I say that all of this sad is giving me a headache.

As far as tearjerkers go, this is the best I've come across yet.

The Applejack chapter is still missing and it's been a while since the last update. I hope you still intend to write it.

fuck that shit im out

Wow. Didn't think this would make me cry. I was wrong. Beautiful story, just beautiful.

I used to think that The Ambassador's Son was your masterwork. I was wrong.

This is truly a work of art.

Thank you for writing this and writing this so well.

Of all of them, I think Pinkie's was my favorite. (Or at least the one that forced me to break into tears.)

Party on, Pinkie...:pinkiesad2:
