"You think you know me..."


It's the End. Equestria has fallen. Her lands are black and sick. Her skies are dark and cold. All that lives is dead – or corrupted by a foe long thought gone.

Millions of lives are lost, among them heroes and princesses, with its remaining survivors forced to retreat to their last safe haven. For five years, they have struggled to survive, dealing with sieges, rebellions, starvation, and death. The Pony Race is all but doomed.

But hope may yet live.

Not all of the Elements have perished. Two survive, and these two final bastions of Ponykind will make an effort to ride into the coming darkness to end it once and for all...

...or be swallowed by it like everything else.

Dem feels man..... dem feels :'(

And the madness begins. :pinkiecrazy:

I was waiting for your project and I'm so glad to finally read the prologe. It's beautifully written and I admit that I cried while reading it. The story itself is very dark and sad and it leaves an impression that nothing is going to be okay. It makes me wonder if there's going to be a happy ending... probably not. Still, I love AppleDash and they're usually great in stories about war and tragedy. And you're both very good writers. I think that I've found another story, which I can put on my "Top 10'' list. Can't wait for the chapter one! :pinkiehappy:


I hate the both of you :fluttercry::fluttercry: A lot. Snif.

Too many feelings.

We'll see what happens. And I couldn't agree more with this.

And even if it was the end, it would be an end like no other.

It remember me this:

I hope that both of you could do it epic. I KNOW that you could do it. And you better do it. Because no matter if this ends well, bad or terrible. The only thing that matters is that this needs to end in the most epic freaking possible way.

And like Conan said, if you don't listen, then the Hell with you!

I'm sure this is good, but I physically cannot bring myself to read this.the feels would be too much for me.

wow its sad but it looked like a lot of adventure coming up soon I like it! :rainbowdetermined2:

It's spelled "prologue". :derpytongue2:

Defiantly interested to see more.

Favorited so I can watch it. Sounds like a wonderful read, but it needs more content before I can embark on this journey. :twilightsmile:

Holy smokes! This has GREAT potential! I can't wait for more. By far one of the best I've read on the site so far.

Faved for the the feels, keep up the great work!

Two of my favorite authors collaborating on a apocalyptic AppleDash story!?

I'm in. Let's do this.

Your avatar says it all... ._.

I was so close to tears just reading THIS! I can't WAIT to see how it turns out! :fluttercry::fluttercry:

One minor nit-pick, it's Cadance, not Cadence. Otherwise and AWESOME story, like, and fave from me!!!

Oh wow, this is an amazing beginning! I fought to hold on the tears. Thank you.

I am wiling to give this a follow SOLELY on the basis that it ABOUT FREAKING TIME we saw some more stories with Sombra As Villain (serious villain).

The sad part is, it's so damn rare (this marks, what the third or forth time I've seen him used appropriately and about half of that was villain in abscentia), I'm about 50% likely to be rooting for Sombra...

This looks like it's gonna be goooooood. :pinkiehappy:
Seriously though, there are far little stories like this and I'm happy this one was made, and I'm so looking forward to updates :yay:

At some point will there be an actual explanation for this world or will it be a just because?

So If I got this right, Celestia had turned corrupted by King sombra? Is she still alive?

She is corrupted. Pretty much a zombie slave or like one of the Darkspawn of the Blight. Dead, but under the control of Sombra

OKAY, I'm excited for the coming chapters! :pinkiehappy:

My feeeeels, man! Good work. :P

Simply amazing! I'm utmost almost wordless.

Been waiting for this.:ajsmug:

This was beautiful. I cannot wait to read more.
Whatever comes next, make sure that it is glorious. For all that they've been through their end needs to be spectacular. But for the love of Celestia, please do not make this anything less than the tragedy it deserves to be. No sudden saving of the world for a happy ending.
This holds so much promise. I hope it will be amazing.

Why are you so amazing?

But the credit doesn't just all go to me, but TwilightUCRazy as well


That's okay... I'll just be right over here. :pinkiecrazy:

UGGH!! :flutterrage: I wan't to read this so bad!!! But i told myself to wait for more chapters.:ajsleepy: You have gotten my attention. :ajsmug:

is a nice start but sadly apple/dash or any other form of shipping fics are my cup of tea, so good luck and enjoy writing it

My mistake.

THIS is where the madness starts. :rainbowdetermined2:

Well... Didn't see that coming! :rainbowderp: great chapter keep up with the good work! :heart::heart::heart:

Cheese Sandwich for New Element of Laughter.

Make it happen.:derpytongue2:

The final gem was carved out as a pink cloud for somepony she had once known nothing but hatred for, yet she owed her life to for his sacrifice.

Who was this^ about?

Who in the series creates pink clouds that look like cotton candy and Rainbow Dash didn't trust nor like even after he reformed?

4816266 I didn't make the connection that it was a cotton candy cloud :derpytongue2:

Well it's kind of hard to make a jeweled version of cotton candy. I know the C-ponies are good but come on.

Excellent!l please more...more....more.... :fluttercry::applecry::raritydespair:

I was expecting a sad story (ya know, because of the "Dark" tag), but I was sorely emotionally unprepared for this. Then putting that song at the end? This story was two swift punches of emotion right to the face. It is excellent and definitely the saddest romance I have ever read. Please keep doing what you do.


:raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry: Dear Celestia, is anypony going to survive????

Discord, Lyra, Bon-Bon, Cherrilee, Rumble's brother.... Too much paaaaaaain!! :fluttercry:

I am Death. Destoryer of Worlds


4818515 Write "Destroyer" correctly, dude XDDDD

And I still hate you and TwilightUCrazy for hurting us with this... awesome story.

I'm masochist, damn. :ajsleepy:
