"...what did I just even read." - Wintermist

Princess Celestia was sure that the day was going to be great. The Sun shone bright in the sky, the birds were singing, and nothing could possibly go wrong. That was, until she received some rather grim news concerning her sister.

She thought she'd been clear enough about things last time.

Short and a good giggle.

They walked into the corridor and entered a small room filled with dignitaries, all of them looking rather sad, although a few appeared to do so more out of necessity than out of honest grief. Except for Blueblood, who simply looked annoyed.

another reason to hate blueblood

Downright wholesome.

"I never really liked her," the Prince said.

well FUUUUUUUUUCk YOU!!! I never liked you blueblood.

She walked closer to the body and raised a hoof to caress her sister's cheek. Then she slapped her.

*cannot hold composure anymore, so he collapse on the floor in a laughing fit*

Ah come on Celly, who doesn't just wanna pretend to be dead for a while? Have a little sympathy!

Absolutely bucking hilarious.
I just wish it was longer.

Short, silly, I liked it!
Also, stay classy, Blueblood. :facehoof:

Luna, you can NOT call out dead for work.

No matter how bad it gets.

Luna's indignity is what sold it for me.

*STOMP STOMP* LUNA LIVES! *STOMP STOMP*

this is so cute!

Tiberious does it all the time!"

Celestia grunted. "Tiberius

You got it both wrong and right within a few sentences. I would have also accepted Tibbles.

This was...

...

...

...

...pretty funny.

I'm honestly surprised it isn't something Celestia has tried to do. I'd imagine after a thousand years at the head of the government calling in dead would look pretty tempting.

Well, Luna has a point. Just, make sure everypony knows she's faking, and let them humor her a bit.

"Well he's my opossum! If you can set yourself on fire like Philomena does than I don't see a reason for me not to play dead like he does!"

I... find it hard to argue with that logic. I guess that, so long as she explains it, she can play dead on occasion.

Dead funny, that.

Funny. :rainbowlaugh:

But it does leave me with a pertinent question: how did Luna fake her vitals so to make the ponies who had found her "dead" really think she was "dead?" I mean, sure, magic, but I want more details than that! :ajsmug:

Fine... alicorn magic

"But... But how?" Twilight finally asked, still shocked.

"You've been smashed against a mountain and walked away fine, do you really think a chandelier could kill Luna?" Celestia asked, looking back at Twilight.

She has a point Twilight. Hell, before you were an alicorn you survived having many items dropped on your head along with everything else that happened to you while stalking observing Pinkie.

I chuckled more than I should :rainbowlaugh:

Pfff, silly Loony

That or she has literally no need for such mortal things such as flowing blood or oxygen

The real reason Luna was banished--
Nightmare Moon played dead after Celestia attacked her so effectively that she thought that she really died. So Celestia put her sister on the moon as a memorial.

She does realize she can just teleport out of coffin...

Celestia should have just rolled with it and buried her.

If you can set yourself on fire like Philomena does than I don't see a reason for me not to play dead like he does

then

"If you can set yourself on fire like Philomena does then I don't see a reason for me not to play dead like he does!"

I absolutely can't find a fault in this logic.

No, it's than.

"Then" is for things regarding time. eg: "When I'm done with this, then I will do that", or "I'd rather do this, then that".
"Than" is for comparisons and the like. eg: "If you can do this, than so can I". or "I'd rather do this than that".

*you know, when people make a correction, they usually have the original mistake in the quote box and the correction below. Not the other way around.

I guess Immortals don't have pulses/vitals & they have magic that serves as blood(kinda like with the Greek Gods... they have special blood which is golden in colour). This is just a theory...!

Hm no. It's THEN.

IF <statement> THEN <consequence> ELSE <other consequence>

It’s also used in if … then constructions such as, “If you wake late, then you might have to skip breakfast.”

It seems that the author has corrected the error in the text.
The quote is from before the error was corrected.

9247753
Nope. Then is correct. It's an "If-then" statement.

I love Blueblood's notion that if he jumps out a window he'll be safe.

her motivation for it ... was Tibbles....... Oh by the stars........

...touche.

Luna is a loon...I like that ^^

This is a true masterpiece :rainbowlaugh:

Blueblood's a little shit.
Let's staple him to the ceiling and WATCH.
HIM.
BLEED.

Short, sweet... and spoiled in the title and description. Sorry, but the punchline doesn't work as well when you broadcast it ahead of time. Still fun, but not as much as it could've been... though, admittedly, I'd have been suspicious about any "Luna's dead" story this short to begin with.

Had it not been for the title and description though, this story would not have gotten this popular. It wouldn't have ended up being featured, and it would have gotten maybe one tenth of the views. Because the popularity of stories on this site is dictated by people judging books by their covers, and it doesn't matter whether a story is good, just that it looks interesting.

I mean, truly, which of us hasn't wished they could fake their own death to avoid certain unpleasantness?
"Hey, Antiquarian, we need to talk about the school's budget!"
"Sorry! Dead!"

That was really funny.:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Luna was doing it for tax purposes.

Fun stuff. Liked the Tiberius nod at the end.

Tiberius + Luna = Cute

"I never really liked her," the Prince said.

*exasperated/derisive snort*
*sigh*
