This was neat.

Make sure you tell them about EL JUDÍO you met in Baltimore 18 months ago.

You are a success, Mono. You are a wonderful writer and so many of us here know you and love your stories.

And most of all, you have discovered the Magic of Friendship!

I dont think i understand, but i liked the storytelling you got out in just 1.1k words

Why are they THIS sad though, with magic and trains etc, they can visit on a semi-regular basis

Saddle Arabia is on the other side of horse world, plus we haven’t seen air travel beyond a hot air balloon in the show. I think there’s an airship in the movie, but I don’t remember if it’s canon. Even if it is, “sailing” across the ocean without an engine can take days to weeks. Not exactly an easy journey for someone who would need as much time as possible devoted to work.

Its hard to feel invested without knowing why, i guess thats part of the story and im just not imaginative enough...

Curse you for having a better memory! :raritydespair:

This reminds me of Bloodiest War. I really miss that story.

Captured perfectly those feelings when you take the first step out into the wild blue yonder.

This was a well written bittersweet story. The set up of Rarity going to Saddle Arabia and leaving Twilight behind reminded me of that Parent Trap blog post.

People are getting too hung up on the idea that they could just visit each other. Someone living even hours away is a huge difference from living nearby. Heck, Twilight barely visits the Equestria Girls world and she has a portal in her house.

This actually reminds me of me and my older brother. Both of us are getting out there in the world, but my dad always has the door open to us if we need to fall back. He always told us that, as long as we kept on trying, He would be proud of us.

Almost made me cry man. Good job, I'm a very tough nut to crack.

Maybe bingeing this and A Thousand Words one after another was a bad idea. I'm about to head home to visit family, and tell them that everything is going fine, that I'm on the path to do the big thing I left home to do. Maybe that's a bad idea. I really need to think, now.

Still, incredible writing, and your Rarity and Twilight shine no matter what aspect of them you're portraying.

there was another story here about going home feeling like a failure.

but in my opinion, you're still alive, able and willing to exist. you'll get more chances to do what you want, and some times we dont get to do what we want, we just have to deal with what life has dealt us.

thank you for sharing this with us. hope you publish everything you got before your exodus.

We all measure success.

Great story and thank you for somewhat sharing your own experience with us

Good story. I give it six reunited stars.
