It had been a year since Twilight had heard of anything from Trixie after the Alicorn Amulet incident. Unexpectedly, she receives a letter saying that her so called "rival" has tragically died and is requested to be at her funeral.

Very impressive, and very moving. :fluttercry:

#2 · 136w, 6d ago · 7 · ·

Either I was the first person to read this, or it's not showing up on my screen. Either way, this was great. It moved me like very few things do these days. Good work!

#3 · 136w, 6d ago · 8 · ·

So sad, beautifully written, but sad.

#4 · 136w, 6d ago · 9 · ·

It would be interesting if, in a follow up chapter, Twilight returns to Ponyville and tells her friends about the letter, and how alone she was.

#5 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>5111328 I think it's fine enough as it is.

#6 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

>>5111334 True, but part of me wonders what it would be like. For instance, there might be doubts on whether she was actually dead or not

#7 · 136w, 6d ago · 8 · ·

I am at my desk, on break, trying to choke back tears as I write this.

Damn, that was perfectly executed.  Bravo!

#8 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

Manly tears where shed this day. Well done.

#9 · 136w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

Sad as sad gets. Oddly enough I just this morning read a story about Twilight dying after breaking her neck in a simple fall.

Please come pick it up or send us an address should you wish to retrieve the context, but not attend the funerall.

My poor heart took a hit there :fluttershysad: well done indeed.

#11 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

...........

I have suddenly embarrassed myself by spontaneously trying to choke back tears as I read this in a library.

You, my man....Just, well done, good sir...:fluttercry:

#12 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

Reminds me of this:

#13 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

:trixieshiftleft: Impossible! For Trixie is immortal!

#14 · 136w, 6d ago · 5 · ·

The feels are real.:fluttercry:

#15 · 136w, 6d ago · 5 · ·

Oh god damn it dude.

Why you do this?

#16 · 136w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

Listening to 21 guns by Green Day while reading this...bad decision.:raritycry::raritydespair::applecry:

#17 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

Very beautiful. A few typos there, but still beautiful. Poor Trixie... :pinkiesad2::fluttercry::applecry::raritycry:

#18 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

I'm not really a fan of Trixie but this really struck me in the heart and the feels. You have earned a like and a fave

May you rest in peace :trixieshiftright:

#19 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

I shed a single tear, not a feat even my little Dashie could accomplish.

#20 · 136w, 6d ago · 9 · ·

Dear Luna... that was powerfully sad... and Trixie in this story reflects my own biggest fear... of dying alone :fluttershysad:

#21 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>5111328 That is definitely something that I hope happens. Hopefully they will show some regret.

#22 · 136w, 6d ago · · ·

>>5111732

Can you point them out? Trying to get it on EQD and every bit helps

#23 · 136w, 6d ago · 9 · 1 ·

“Fell down some stairs and broke her neck. Real pity,” answered Everlasting.

Twilight, "Trixie, how did you die?"

Trixie, "I... Uhm...."  *Ghost Napa hints, "You fell down some stairs."*  "I fell down some stairs."

Dash is incredulous!  "No you didn't!  You-"

Trixie quickly interrupts with a snarl, "Shut up before I throw you down a flight."

It had to be done.  :trollestia:

#24 · 136w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

>>5111893

Okay, points for that one

#25 · 136w, 6d ago · 6 · ·

That ending...

Bravo Ponystar.

#26 · 136w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

RIP Trixie :fluttercry:

#27 · 136w, 6d ago · 5 · ·

It always feels weird to say a sadfic was wonderful, but this really was.

#28 · 136w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

By the Nine...man, now this is a Tragic Trixie...looking through this a second time...

I'd always wondered what might become of Trixie after season 3...this was one possibility that when I think about it, would make all too much sense.  As for her writing her note...likely this was done in a moment of melancholy, but something that put her mind at ease.  And when her life was lost...I just...

Not gunna lie, I love Trixie's character and the potential she represents.  This version though...leaving life with a sad ending to a sad story...I only hope the rest of the girls can hear this and send her off.  Part of me wants to see how this effects them as well.  Twilight...really I expect no less of her, she's a good pony through and through.  The others?  I think I need to see how they'd handle this, how they'd be effected by the death of one they loathed, yet never understood.  And in finally coming to understand...what will they say then?

Great work, and thanks for all of this.

#29 · 136w, 6d ago · · ·

*clap*...*clap*...*clap*...this was a truly meaningful story. This work has really given me another point of view to Trixie, Twilight, and real life people. I know this is a fanfiction, but this is too good to be wasted and be left as a fanfiction that I just read without meaning or care. I appreciate this beautiful piece of artwork. :pinkiesad2:

#30 · 136w, 6d ago · · ·

Favorited. Da feelz!

#31 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

... fck, now i have something in my eye.

#32 · 136w, 6d ago · · ·

Strange, the comic says that she attended Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns...

#34 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>5112095

Yes, but not everyone has read the comics or accepts them as cannon.  As it stands, I figure this iteration can be chalked up to Multi-verse theory as an alternate Trixie...at least, that's my thought on it.  That said, still sad though.

#35 · 136w, 6d ago · · 29 ·

.......

Heh.

Finally.

She's dead.

I hated her.

Hope she goes to hell.

Great story.

Keep going.

And remember.

You can't escape death....

Or me. :pinkiecrazy:

#36 · 136w, 6d ago · 6 · 3 ·

>>5111905 I also imagine Trixie falling down the stairs to the audio track of Homer Simpson falling into the Springfield Gorge...

:trollestia:

Yeah, I'm pretty much pure evil...

#37 · 136w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

This was very good. It didn't make me cry, but really, nothing like this does. Still, good job.

Was the letter the item Trixie had wanted her to have?

#38 · 136w, 6d ago · 6 · ·

Today, no poet needed be called

for this one was not laid to rest alone.

I felt like I needed to say something a little profound but I am not a man of elaborate words or a crafter of poems. But I managed to at least write that. It will have to do.

For those that don't understand

>>5112128 I think you are in the wrong comment section kid

#40 · 136w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

Manly tears were shed! :fluttercry: This was beautiful and sad. R.I.P. Trixie. You will be missed and never forgotten. :ajsleepy:

#41 · 136w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

damn...the feels man...THE FEELS:fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

>>5112343

Yeah, this is a thumbs-up circlejerk, dang it! You keep your dissenting opinions to yourself! :flutterrage:

(Note, this comment is sarcasm and meant to be a joke.)

#43 · 136w, 6d ago · 4 · ·

I have decided to fav this story, so that it would be remembered. Though we may all be lost to the sands of time, as long as someone remembers us in some way...well, no one deserves to be alone.

#44 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

Excellent. :fluttershysad::pinkiesad2:

#45 · 136w, 6d ago · 15 · ·

Fine then. Trixie will just have to be Great and Powerful in the afterlife.

I like this line.  Even if Trixie died alone and without even knowing that even a single pony would remember her, she's spitting at the hand the world dealt her.

She has eternity and more stubborn drive than a dozen other ponies.  She will become Great and Powerful.

#47 · 136w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

I'm...I'm not crying! I'm just...I'm just.... :fluttercry:

#49 · 136w, 6d ago · · ·

Sorry to be a downer here, but I thought her death would be more fatal than falling down stairs. Like she got run over by her own wagon, beaten or murdered from haters or muggers, or maybe she accidently fell off a cliff. Sorry, but still a great story! (please don't take this comment the wrong way).

#50 · 136w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

I had an idea stuck in my head all day today. Twilight gives a eulogy about a passed away Pinkie. Ends with a standing ovation from her friends and family. WHY WAS THIS POSTED SHORTLY AFTER I START WRITING?? Now I gotta decide whether to wait a couple weeks or ride a depressing eulogy train...
