Impossible Numbers


"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying, And this same flower that smiles today, Tomorrow will be dying."

E

For years and years, Grand Pear refused to go back to Ponyville, his pride utterly bruised by his daughter's choice. How dare she choose an Apple over her own kin! How could she do that to him, his own little angel, with her beautiful voice and the songs she learned on his knee?

For decades, he never dared answer his own question. And it's not just the guilt that's creeping over him in his old age. Not anymore. He stayed away for too long and has let too much fester in his heart.

Now his own wife WILL make him face the music. Pear Butter is no longer around to play. But it hardly matters, because old stallions can't dance again... can they?

That is so sad!

This is so beautiful, yet so sad. :ajsleepy:

This was very good. Poignant, and effective for it. I love stories about the Perfect Pear episode, sad or bittersweet as they can be. Thank you for this one.

Thank you for your comments. :twilightsmile: The Perfect Pear is one of my favourite episodes of the entire show, so I'd love to revisit it in future stories with different ideas. (And with an episode devoted to tragic love, the fics just write themselves!) :scootangel: Thanks again!

This...this was perfect. Whoever downvoted this has no soul.

I wouldn't go quite that far, if only because this sort of thing is ultimately a matter of taste. Still, I admit it would be nice to at least know the reasoning behind that downvote, just in case any useful feedback could be gleaned from it.

That said, what a wonderful comment! I do enjoy seeing such enthusiasm, and I'm glad the fic did it for you. Thank you very much! :twilightsmile:

Not a problem, it was a great story.

And I agree, it would be nice if people justified their downvotes. I'm convinced that some people only downvote my stuff just to be trolls, to be honest.

:twilightsheepish: I'm just that good, heh.

Don't know if you've read the rest of it since, but I hope you enjoy it if you ever do so. :twilightsmile:
