Equestria is safe once again, and Twilight has found her destiny. Still, the beginning of this new chapter in her life comes at a high cost, and Twilight must come to terms with the bittersweet ending to her latest adventure.

Rest in peace, Tree Library. You shall be missed.

I'm pleased to see a high quality story on this topic show up so quickly after the season finale.

4368419 Thanks. And I'm not even the first, someone else beat me by a solid hour. :twilightoops:

Goodbye Golden Oaks Library ye shall be missed.

R.I.P Golden Oaks Library


We hardly knew ya. :ajsleepy:

The Library shall remain in our hearts forever.

Thought this song would be appropriate, since Terra Strong was in this game and it's about preserving memories.

Here's the real question to ask ourselves:

Did Golden Oaks die in vain, or was its annihilation for a noble cause?

~The lizardman needs to know

:fluttercry: we salute you Golden Oaks Library

4368877 Jarkes, considering not only did Tirek stole all his magic and was shown that other who lost there magic didn't move from there spots when there drain i think he lost almost the ability to move for awhile.

a scorched acorn, the last remnant of the Golden Oak Library, lay atop a red velvet pillow.

Don't leave it there, plant it, maybe you can grow something. Just a children's section to start with but eventually a whole new library.

I'm glad you brought up everything in the basement; I forgot about all the stuff down there :twilightoops:

4369171 Yes, all Twilight's torture devices survived the cataclysm. I just didn't show them in this story because of the rating. :raritywink:

I admit, these stories confuse me for a rather silly reason. I thought the Lockbox of Harmony planted itself in the ruins of the library. I guess it didn't, but I'm still somewhat befuddled.

In any case, a lovely story. Emotional as any moving day, just with more explosions. Thank you for this.


But at least this time it wasn't a hidden comedy. Blueshift...

4369256 The library was still a smoking ruin when the Box of Harmony turned into the seed of the new Palace. The ground it buried itself in was unblemished and OUTSIDE of Ponyville.

Well, shows what I know. I have made an ass out of oak and me. Or something like that. :derpytongue2:

4369201 Those aren't torture devices they're obviously for glorious S&M :twilightblush:

On the plus side. Twilight's horde is now gone also.

Well... You will be missed, Golden Oaks...

Onward to the Crystal Conifer Castle containing council-room of cooperation!

Damn, already?

You motherbuckers are fast! :pinkiegasp:

#r.i.ptree #whatashame

I really do hope they acknowledge he destruction of the Libary in season 5. It at the very least needs a mention.

Congrats on your featured!:scootangel:

*shakes a plastic cup around*

This is only the beginning, isn't it? The site is gonna be flooded with tree stories for at least a month, like the whole peaches thing. I bet Knighty will approve every last one too, since he can't cope right now.

4369660 I couldn't help but laugh at that :pinkiehappy:
4370897 Wouldn't that be a good thing? We wont have to worry about much air pollution. :derpytongue2:

Good work. A perfect little piece to put in either after the episode or between the final battle and the ending of the episode. Good bit of bittersweet writing here.

4370897 ...knighty doesn't approve stories. The story approvers approve stories. :twilightsheepish:

4371376 Thanks! :twilightsmile:

Discord: *snaps fingers* There. Your stupid tree is back. Now stop whining!

That was awesome. Great job and great story, loved it :twilightsmile:

Nevermind the Holocaust, the Burning of Alexandria is the greatest crime ever committed by man.

Very nice! I am still processing that finale, so epic!


This was good, makes a change from all the whining.

My only regret is now, reading this, all other hashtagtree fics will probably be worse and leave me annoyed.

Not bad. Well executed, and you captured the feeling of loss that comes with an abrupt move very well.


I feel nothing.

"Hmm. There's something cursed in there..." The contents of one cart shifted, and a yellowed minotaur skull with a black crystal in its jaw floated out. "GAH!" she cried, taking a step back. "Why would you even pack something like that?"

My immediate thought.V

*Looks at cover pic* You don't say?:ajbemused:

This should have been put into the episode, and I mean it. The theme of moving on from something that you once held dear should tie into Twilight's growth into princess, and thus the abandonment of her old life, and should have been touched upon. Instead, they instantly created a castle out of thin air, so Twilight wouldn't have to deal with losing her old home. It was still a good episode, but you wrote something that could have made the show stronger: yes the things you love can be destroyed, but as long as your standing, and you have your friends by your side, you can recover.

4369660 No no, my dear child. We just don't like bad, pointless change.

:applecry: that's all I have to say...

Being someone who hasn't watched a thing since the end of season 2, this is actually fucking pathetic. If they wanted to have some sort of meaningful change, just remove one the character's physical attributes. Take a horn, some wings. Maybe a leg.

4376277 Maybe you should actually watch the episodes in question before you say stupid things? :ajbemused:

Now that was a good read.

"After all, I caused a lot of the crazy, didn't I?"

Polymer: "OH, GAWD, DID YOU EVER!!!"

Count on Luna to deliver poetic and sentimental prose, yet sound completely genuine. I'd say this story was just as good as thejboy88's take on the same idea. Now to read Blueshift's...
