It’s been mere hours since the changelings invaded Canterlot. Ponies are picking up the pieces of their broken city, some mourning loved ones lost during the attack, some searching for family and friends who have not been seen since the shield fell—yet the royal wedding is going to continue as planned. How can such a joyful celebration persist amidst so much suffering and sorrow?

Long live France, and may the French people forever endure.

I quite liked this one shot. Bitter in some parts, but strong and uplifting at the end and solidly written throughout. In my opinion, you made great usage of both imagery and sounds to convey the emotions of survivors in the aftermath of a large-scale attack on a place of great significance. Normally I would suggest such stories as this be a bit longer but I feel it is long enough here to impart the desired message to readers effectively.

6636654 Thank you very much, both for the favorite and, more so, the comment! My short stories do tend to come out a little lengthier, but this one became an exception. Short, but, as you mentioned, it said what I wanted it to say.

Your story speaks with wise words

This was just beautiful. Hopeful. Sorrowful then jovial. Absolutely lovely, and absolutely what I needed to read. It's absolutely what the world needs to hear. Thank you for writing this, and for sharing it.
