Nyronus


Greetings World. You may call me Nyronus. I write stories, among other things. My hobbies include existential ennui, being Princess Luna, and Saving the World. Feel free to hit me up on Steam to chat!

E

psy·cho·pomp - ˈsīkōˌpämp - noun: (in Greek mythology) a guide of souls to the place of the dead.

Luna and Twilight have a conversation at a crucial juncture in Twilight's life. Celestia and Applejack discuss it after the fact.

A story about moving on, the recurrence of things in eternity, awkwardness, and friendship.


Special thanks to Nyerguds, Cynewulf, and Lord Destrustor for pitching in on spotting my messes, and to my longtime friends who push me to improve.

Still love the voice here.

You always did have a knack for the philosophical things, don't you?

Short, but dense. In a good way, though!

That is the way of things though, and unfortunately if the world was perfect, I would be out of a job.

There are a lot of layers in that statement. I'm surprised by how many I find hilarious.

In any case, I'm a huge sucker for psychopomp Luna stories, and this one was fantastic, treating death seriously without straying into maudlin territory. Great work, and thank you for it.

Was this all a story?! Well, obviously it's a story but did she die or not?! Man, this was an amazing story, Luna's part choked me up.

It wasn’t fair is what she told Twilight, and it wasn’t.

You might want to offset Luna's statement in this sentence in some fashion (italics, maybe); I had to read it a few times to get it to parse. :twilightsmile:

This made me tear up, and yet left me happy at the same time, and that's kind of amazing. :twilightsheepish:

This was nice. And that's SO Twilight pinkie must have died again from laughing :trollestia:

I can't help but think of "Crossing the Bar" as I read this story.

Simply a beautiful and elegantly written story:raritywink:, bravo my friend you made a grown man cry today out of happiness and sadness than sit in his car and contemplate death for an hour:twilightsmile:

Still not sure if I like this version better than the original, but eh, still a lovely story :twilightsmile:

I... considered making a remark about that when prereading, because it is indeed a bit of an odd construction, but in the end I let it slide :unsuresweetie:

I reviewed this story as part of Read It Now Reviews #97.

My review can be found here.

I'm terrified of death
