This story is not meant to be offensive and is purely written for the story. Each chapter is a different account of the story. The points of view are:
-Flash Sentry
-Vinyl Scratch
Each character recounts the experience and finds there own way to acceptance. This is a touchy subject, so please do not read this if you are sensitive about it. This is my first story so please give lots of feedback in the comments.

Maybe for your first story you shouldn't pick something so sensitive and personal to a growing number of people. I for one would feel horribly insulted and upset at someone who would attempt a story like this who as never had to deal with this sort of thing or talked with someone who has.

But what do I know, for all I know you may be a survivor of one of these horrible shootings though, judging from the first chapter, I'm going to say not and I wouldn't be surprised if this story upsets a few people.

Wait.... what? She... found the gun... underground? Did I miss something?

Other then that and a few spelling errors, not all that bad.( Writing-wise, I mean.)

Topics like this are one's writers only ever cover once they've written a few dark stories and have a firm grasp on what they're doing. You took it immediately. That is both a bold and risky move you did. Bold in the fact you made it your first story. And risky in the fact there was a huge chance you could've easily screwed it up. But to me, with the way you presented it, it seems like you did relatively okay. I will say this though. School shootings affect everyone, student, faculty, and parents alike, differently. It could've helped if you presented a chapter based on the perspective of a parent who lost their kid or even one set in the perspective of a faculty member to really set how tragic the situation was. Maybe even a small chapter where the Twilight from Equestria comes to check up on Sunset after not hearing from her in a while only to learn the horrible truth and it hits her the most. Things like that.

Read this story while listen to this song


Oh, my gosh! Why?! :raritycry: Why does life keep trying to break this poor sweet cinnamon roll? He's been such a good boy. He doesn't deserve this. Why?! :raritycry:

I know my reaction's pretty over-the-top, but this story was just so sad. Thank goodness no one died. For a second, I thought Twilight had died.

Someone give these kids a hug. This is just so sad. :raritycry:

Hey. Don't let the downvotes discourage you. It's probably just emotions running high. As sad and painful as this story is, it's very well-written.

Okay, this chapter made me feel sick. I mean, they all did, but this one especially. You must be doing something right.

Hold on. I'm with 8852581 on this one. She found a gun and some magazines buried underground. How is it even still functional? It was probably caked in dirt inside and out.
Other than that, this chapter was pretty scary to read.

2 things.

1. Code red is more for fires, not shooters.

2. Extremely bad idea

Um, I did a little research on the internet. Code Red in hospitals means fire. Code Red in a school means lockdown.

You got very lucky not bombing this...

Decently done for a first story, and it was a high risk topic you chose so this is one time where you should ignore the upvotes/downvote ratio. I suggest you write something either warm hearted or clop for the next one so you can showcase your range of skills with different subjects and ratings (E ,T, M).

I'm gonna be the unpopular opinion here, and say that subject matter should never limit a writer's creative scope.

In my opinion, you can never touch a topic too sensitive or too dark as long as you do it right.

Writing (even fan fiction) is an art form after all.

Just my two cents.

I feel like you need to hear this. You did a great job handling this story. It was sensitive, emotional, sobering, yet hopeful. If you had made this subject matter a joke, I probably would have hated this story, but you didn't, so I don't. Well done.

The whole reason I joined this site is so I could write this story. Ever since the recent Parkland shooting I had this story in my head. This really was an awakening for me about life. I am very sorry if you did not like my story, I just hope that it will make you think. I will write more lighthearted stuff in the future. Thank you GodsLittlePrincess, Renderin, Sandstorm98, ace_attorneyfan800, and pvtspoon for the feedback. I will keep that stuff in mind. Do you think I should write a sequel for some of these ideas?

Well, I am a little curious as to how the Mane 6 is handling Sunset Shimmer dying.

You will get flak for writing this story. But take solace in the fact that you told a story that needed to be told.
The issue with school shootings creates hysteria everywhere in America, so I applaud you for choosing to not be silent about it, or how to deal with the problem.

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold

School shootings are a very tough pill to swallow for everyone, and you took a huge risk to write this story. You did a brave job of writing this and I really enjoyed it.

Okay, I don't know if I should feel bad for this, but I couldn't stop reading this story. I just kept coming back to it and back to it, and I didn't know why. I mean, I liked it, and it hit all the right emotional notes, but (and I mean this in the least offensive way possible) it wasn't THAT good. After maybe the fourth or fifth reading, I realized why I kept coming back. This story doesn't quite have the closure that it needs, and I was looking for it. It was nice seeing everyone take the first steps of accepting what happened and moving on, but I wanted to see more of that process. I wanted to see them deal with the grief of losing friends. I wanted to see them reaching out to and leaning on the other people who were effected by this. At the moment, each character feels like they are suffering and moving on alone. There's nothing wrong with that. Seeing this experience through the lens of each character helped me empathize with them, but now, I want to see them suffering and moving on together. I want to see how this experience changed their relationships with each other and the rest of the school. I'm sorry if I'm making a tall order, but if you want to write a sequel going deeper into what happened in this one, by all means, go ahead.

I am working on the sequel “Retrospective Red”. I hope that it will help finish the story ark and fill in the missing pieces. GodsLittlePrincess, you have been especially helpful with all your comments. I do not know when I will be done with the sequel, as I have stuff I am writing, but it is one of my priorities, So far I have:
-Princess Twilight will return to Pedestria
-Vice Principal Luna
-One of the Mane Six’s parents
Is there anything else I should include?

Maybe having the characters in this story interacting with each other and the Mane cast. I am strangely curious as to how Pinkie Pie is dealing with this. She can be pretty tough to write in a serious story. Maybe you can give someone featured in this story nightmares or something and use that as a jumping point for the process of these kids reaching out to each other. Just suggestions.

CODE RED?! :pinkiegasp: are the Reds are coming?

They were in the middle of working a problem when over the speakers came Principal Celestia. Her voice was high pitched and nervous. “Code Red...Code Red...this is not a drill...this is not a drill.”

CODE RED?! :pinkiegasp: This only means one thing? THE REDS ARE COMING!! (Grabs a double barrel shotgun from the vent) I'm not going to be forced into Labor of another time!

It is well written for a first story, well done 7 Elements.

I’m really sorry I haven’t written a sequel yet. I’ve tried several times but nothing seems right. I might come back to this later.

These things take time, no worries.

I Instantly shit and cummed
