Ha, I see a nod in that title. πŸ˜„

When I saw the title of this story, I thought of the title " Solo: A Star Wars Story ". Get the nod? XD

That was entirely unintentional. Cross my heart. o_O

I'm not saying you copied anything, cause you didn't XD I just like to compare things that I recognize as something else lol πŸ˜„

Anyway, good story so far. 😊

I know I didn't copy anything. Thank you for the complement! ^_^

Indeed they can! Nothing like a snuggle kitty or lap dog, am I right?

Okay.... that just happened.

It's the Magic of Guilt coma.

I don't know what to say...

Either you wrote something twice or this is getting awkward.

It was intentional. She sent her text, saw the texts from her dead parents, then blinked twice just to be sure.

Oh god... I'm almost crying, too...

Woah, this story is getting deep... I was not prepared for so much trauma and emotion, especially after "Bored Rainbow Dash is Bored"! But you're doing a great job with the writing!

I wonder what all the cracking was?

All in good time. Remember, this is only the first part of the trilogy! :raritywink:

(You have a scarring nightmare? We've got a smoothie for that!)

I wonder if you knew what you were referencing...

I did. You want to make a reference? We have an app for that too. :derpytongue2:

I honestly don't know where one goes to get guard rails. ^_^;

The same place one goes to get two-by-fours, screws, and sand paper.

I usually make my own guard rails usin' said 2x4s, some nails and screws, and a few hand made railings. I like workin' with my hands.

You know, I never mentioned this before now, but whenever you dream, you almost never know that you're dreaming until you wake up, no matter how bizarre or unrealistic the dream is. So honestly, every time one of the mane 7 find themselves in a dream and INSTANTLY says "Oh hey, I'm dreaming," I just find it a little odd.

But it's especially bad for this chapter, because Applejack immediately realized that she was dreaming, but then she instantly got all emotional over her friends' and family's words, despite the fact that Applejack knew she it was only a dream and none of it was real.

I just found that detail to be very distracting.

To be fair, emotions can make one think irrationally.
