Starlight Glimmer is finally ready to leave Sires Hollow behind, and begin life in the real world. But leaving home does not come without a bit of anxiety, despite all of the excitement. In the case of Firelight, the feeling is mutual.

Beautiful. So many 'feels' throughout the tale. You always succeed in pairs of this nature. Parent / Child and/or Adult Foal / Caretaker always come out so brilliantly with your style.

This story can be seen in many different ways. The simplest is an 'Empty Nest' tale. TV commercials and shows make it seem like parents celebrate their children leaving. However, quite often, it does leave a void that cannot be so easily filled by a "Extra Room".

It also is kind of how I feel as my wife and I further into our divorce. There are days, like this one, where he is with her and I'm al by myself until I go into work the next day. Then there are days he is here and I'm struggling to hold myself together as I don't feel as strong being 'just dad' as I did when I felt I had a true family.

I can see Fire Light, being a single parent, really taking her leaving to be bittersweet. You want the best for your kids but doubt how well you did given circumstances that resulted in separate, or totally single, parenting. Could things have been better? Is there something a mother could have given to help better prepare Starlight for her future? It's a lot to take in while being strong.

It's also hard being a man with strong emotions. Fire Light is certainly that sort of stallion. He is very open about how much he treasures his daughter along with how he wishes he could preserve her forever. Unfortunately we all grow up and can only hope that our children are able to do better than we did.

I try so hard to be a god dad despite being blind and reliant on so many things. I feel very disconnected as he is taking a big love of the arts and I can't see his Live Streams while his mom can. It's like, for the first time, there are now "Mom Things" and "Dad Things". There is no "Family Thing" and, to be honest, I think this hurts my son the most.

So, as I said, a lot to draw from this story.

Thank you for writing this; I enjoyed this story VERY much. As a huge Starlight Glimmer fan I love stories that are about family love and the bond between parent and child. These two have that special bond in spades, even with Firelight's tendency to treat Starlight like a little foal. Bravo!:raritywink:

Heaethwarming for a tale of leaving the nest. But sad considering what we know Starlight did after leaving the village.

And off she goes, ready to start her own community of ponies with forced smiles and equal sign cutie marks.
