Eskerata


"Friendship is an island that you retreat to. And you fall on the floor and laugh at all the ninnies who don't have enough brains to have your good taste." --Ray Bradbury

E

Princess Luna has helped thousands of Equestria's children through their dreams. But is this done out of love or are her motives more complex? When Luna finds a filly that can't wake up, they both discover a lot about each other.

Damn that was a good read
will there be other chapters?

DAMN that was deep:pinkiesad2:

5177072 Nope, no other chapters. Thanks for the fave on this story, BTW.

Well done - added to Sad Luna.

5178665 Thanks! I'm glad you liked it enough to put my story there. (Man, I wish I had a Luna emoticon.) (:trixieshiftright:No, not quite.)

Not a bad concept. It's an interesting story. 7/10

I know you you heard 'The Beautiful Silence', but I was listening to 'Oceanside' by 'The Decemberists'. I want you you to reread your fanfic to the tune. I cried to the awesome matchup.

Dam that is really deep. You know how to pull the heart strings don't cha. You have earned a follower.

5179349 I'll have to find that tune on Youtube later. (That's where I find most of my new music.)

5179381 Heh-heh-heeehh...Another one joins the party. Thanks for the follow. I hope you like the rest of my stories.

Well that's weird. How can a ghost dream? Still a bit lost. Did they all die?

5179540 Well, who's to say that when one rests in peace, they cannot dream?

Yes, Silver Shine and her parents died. Since this happened in her sleep, she was confused and eventually frightened enough to attract Luna's attention.
Thanks for the fave.:pinkiehappy:

5179456 Nah, just download Spotify. It is a lot quicker and if you have slow internet, you don't have to load a full video, just a picture and an audio file.

I nodded. It was heart-warming to know that some ancient knowledge had not been lost over the centuries.
...
“You never visited anyone’s dreams before Princess Celestia sent you to the moon, I bet.” said Silver shine with a knowing smile.
“I didn’t know true suffering back then. When I was banished to the moon for my foolish rebellion, I had plenty to time to reflect in that cold silence.” I poked at the ground, my heart feeling more heavy by the minute.

I was confused by these passages since they seemed to conflict. Is this set centuries after Luna returned or was she visiting dreams while on the moon?

5180226 Oops.:twilightoops: I'll have to fix that. At least it was a small flub.
Breaking news: I fixed the weird sentence to a less-weird sentence.

This story i so deep that adele would roll in it

5220899 Hey, ya write consistently good stories. And this one with luna and that ghost child was exceptionally written.

Gives me much to think about.:twilightsmile:

Heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
Wonderful job!

Psychopomp Luna is best Luna! I'm thoroughly impressed with your writing, thank you for sharing your special talent with us!:yay:

5583811 Thanks! I love Lulu. Thanks again for the follow!

5641024 Thanks very much! I love the logo you sent!

Very interesting and lovely story even if the child wasn't still alive but rather a ghost left behind from a tragic plague.

5704323 Thanks very much! I'm glad you liked it!:pinkiehappy:
Thanks for the fave on it, too!

5723853 That's a good, creative guess.:twilightsmile: I hope you liked my ending.

Reviewed story for Goodfic Bin: you get in easily.

Detailed decision is here.

Wow. I love your writing style, and of course I love Luna. Just... Wow.

5765117 Thank you very much!:pinkiehappy:

Congratulations! This story has been featured on the front page of TGB. :twilightsmile:

5796631 Wow!:rainbowderp:
Thank you very much!

Wow, heart-wrenching and beautiful. You did a great job portraying Luna here, and I enjoyed Silver Shine as well. Bravo!

5804126 Thank you very much. Lulu became one of my favorite ponies after the MLP episode "For Whom The Sweetie Belle Toils"
aired on the Hub. (RIP).

You are most welcome, and I cannot wait to see what you come up with next. :twilightsmile:

This was an interesting read. I wasn't surprised by the twist late on, but I did enjoy the explanation of why Luna doesn't enter adult ponies' dreams. Have a like. :twilightsmile:

Tips: try to sprinkle in some longer sentences. All of them being short made it feel kinda rushed. Here's an awesome piece of advice I've seen:

room3wcs.edublogs.org/files/2015/07/This-sentence-has-five-words-2mlsfly.jpg

But, despite the fact I started with a constructive criticism - I actually found this quite spectacular. Thanks for writing it, it's fantastically good! It's even got me contemplating writing a short fic about Luna going to a haunted house to bring rest to the haunting souls.

7250217 Thanks for the advice. There is such a thing as too much brevity and that smegs up my writing sometimes.
Thank you for the fave on this story.:raritywink:
I'm flattered to discover that I've influenced your own writing like this. I hope your Luna story gets written. It sounds interesting.

That was sad, but really touching. Why are people really good writers?:heart:

Very touching piece well written.
Your portrayal of Luna is spot on; kind and sensitive but riven with guilt.
You just have to love her.

Thank you very much. It's nice to see my old Luna story can still entertain people.:twilightsmile:
