Not even Celestia herself is immortal.

Twilight writes a eulogy in remembrance of her mentor and Princess, and reminisces on the reign of Celestia.

I liked it, but I'm not really able to tell WHY or come up with an actual response. Good job I guess?

...you managed to make me cry. You actually managed it.

Damn dude. Bravo :pinkiesad2:

Wow, this is some heavy stuff.


We really need more sad emoticons.

i got that celestia had died and luna was doing something that i assume twilight didnt think too good of but was a little lost on the rest but thats probably just because of my mental problem

It didn't really do it for me. I didn't feel the weight to it, and it just didn't make me feel anything.

It's a good story, but I didn't feel too much to it.

damn....just damn....

4030778 Luna asked Twilight to write the eulogy, but Twilight hates it, mostly because she feels she cannot do it justice. She also hates the fact that Celestia's body will be preserved, because it's false hope that she might someday be revived.

Basically, Twilight feels that Celestia is irreplaceable, and the eulogy and the mausoleum are so far beneath what Celestia represented that they are essentially lies and a desecration of her memory.

At least that's what I got out of it.

My opinion:

I can kinda see what the tale was going for, but it didn't quite fire for me. It's well-written, but I just couldn't get into Twilight's head properly to feel what she felt. Especially after she already experienced the passing of her friends and parents, she should be handling this a little better. There's some muddled philosophising which doesn't really seem to lead anywhere; Twilight just seems to be thrashing with her own emotions, and it doesn't really go anywhere.

This gets an upvote for the interesting premise and good writing, but no fave since it missed the emotional target for me.

My keyboard is so slippery...

My thoughts exactly. It's hard for both Twilight and myself to wrap her/my head around the fact that Celestia is dead. Instead of a eulogy, I would have probably had this song playing during the funeral (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upkYQqbrjSc) I wish I knew how to insert videos into comments.

I agree 100%.

I've been looking for that song for ages, by the way. And you can click on the little youtube logo above the comment box to insert videos. :twilightsmile:

This could be centuries after her friends and family passed, though. By this point she's probably adjuested to the idea that ponies will die but Celestia and Luna will always be there.

:pinkiesad2: That's all I really have to say.

oww. this hurts. reading this is painful

i dont get it

......... the emotion that is, i understand the rest
