I am an pretty filly.


Life is hard, especially for a certain yellow pegasus. Torn and depressed, Fluttershy had just about given up on life. But with a second chance, and the help of an unexpected friend, can she learn what it truly means to be happy?

Thank god for the last sentence, I was so close to cry out loud in front of my roommate.

This is wonderful.

Shit, I forgot that I'm a soulless bastard.

I need to find something happy, like right the fuck now. Between Fallout Equestria's soul-fucking finale and this, I am starting to identify "pony" with "despair".

That said, this is awesomely-written. Five stars, take them.

Thanks everypony, it's a shame I crashed before I got to see this come up.

Curse you, sleep.

Well done sir.:ajsmug:

holy shit. this is some epic shit right here. everypony needs to read this :moustache:


Let's hope Seth's Pre-Readers agree with you.

I just have to say, brilliant writing. I don't usually like sad ponies, but this deserves every star it gets.

You, my friend, deserve 50 stars for this story. The ending makes the story awesome, it's really a nice thing to make some character live an happy story while most writers have fun in killing characters without any reason.
You deserve 5 Pinkies! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:


Oh jebus fuck five pinkies.

This sin't sad at all; it's about how Fluttershy fights off her depression. No idea what you guys are talking about :p
Beautiful story. Nearly gave me a heart attack at the end there, but beautiful nonetheless.


Thank you. Yes, it was a sad story. Just because of the happy ending, doesn't make the middle any less hnnng.

66604 A souless basterd with an awesome sense of humor. UP TOP! ^_^/)

Awesome, you've dispelled my Antagonistic intent.... And now I have to embark on an epic quest to reclaim it. Are you happy LunaUsesCaps:ajbemused:? Your story melted the evil from my heart and now I can't write:twilightangry2:. Just take your 5 star and the favorite from me:flutterrage: I have evil I must attend to:trixieshiftleft:


*Fluttershy evil laugh from S1E26*

I loved this, I have to admit my heart was in my throat until she spread her wings at the last minute, very well written :twilightsmile:

Its glorious. That writing, its amazing. :yay:

The story was absolutely awesome, but I was a little confused for most of it. Right after the first scene, it went into what seemed to be a flashback, but then as the scenes went on I began to wonder if it was a flashback or the events occurring after Fluttershy jumped and was saved or something. It honestly wasn't until the very final scene where I pieced it all together.
Though you really set up a red herring at the start - from the choice of words (such as "The pegasus took a final look at her home and smiled", or "On any other occasion, this would brighten the pegasus' spirit, but not now. It was far too late for that") it seemed like Fluttershy was actually trying to kill herself, but just changed her mind and pulled up at the last second. But based on what she wrote in the letter (specifically, the very last line) she obviously didn't plan on dying...my brain is breaking here.
Aside from that little confusion, I thoroughly enjoyed this story! It needs to be on Equestria Daily! I give you five stars, Flutteryays, and Spike Staches!


>It was far to late for trivial things to brighten her as she needed to confront her fears.

>She never intended on dying in the first place, it wasn't a suicide attempt, simply an adrenaline rush to prove to herself that she didn't need to be afraid of the world.

Also, you have THE BEST NAME EVER.:trollestia:

That feeling in my throat won't go away.

One thing I must warn you about however.

The kindness shall not last forever if I have anything to say about it.

"Because evil....always finds a way....":pinkiecrazy:

Hmmmm. I'm not so sure about this one. I don't think you've got Fluttershy's character quite right. While as my learned colleague Crazy does point out it's not really sad, I still don't think you've hit Fluttershy's character.

Eh, what do I know.

Hmm I had no emotion to this due to the countless insults and being bullied just ripped out my soul...:eeyup:

ho so very very sad :raritycry:

practically cried :fluttercry:

loved it :rainbowkiss:

especially the ending :twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

Oh, I was so glad for that last sentence. It was all pointing one way up until there.

I would really, really love to see a followup to this, as she tries to put her life back together and overcome her depression. Having made that trip once myself, it'd be something to see Fluttershy going through.


I've removed two of your posts since you posted the same thing three times.


I'm not doing any follow ups, they're generally trivial and un-enjoyable. Sorry. Story is over.

Flutterhsy jumping:fluttercry:

Fluttershy not dying:moustache::twilightsmile:

Awesome read. Definitely going onto my kindle :raritystarry:

I got excited at the end... Then I saw the last sentence....

Trolled Again:pinkiecrazy:

It's just as I've feared; all my manly tears have been used up. I see that this was very touching and sad, but for some reason, even though I know I probably should have cried, I just didn't. A few months ago, a fic like this would have had me choking back tears, but now there's nothing.:fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritycry::applecry:

*standing ovation*
Beautiful...just beautiful...

Huh... I don't see this as sad. I laughed the whole story away. Then the last line came up and I thought no way! As such, I applaud you. Good show, old chap. Jolly good. 4 stars.

Your grammar and narrative are fantastic. I enjoyed reading your work.

Thank goodness! I love Fluttershy too much to read about her dying like that!

Thanks all.

68890 hey I just want to thank you for this, I recently read a 5 star (it deserved it) Luna suicide fic and I was shocked. I wish I could remember the name. But sir this is right up there with that fic and another fic named "The Glass Blower". You made it into my list of fave sad fics.

Thank You.

69249 Lunacy, Lunacy was its name...


Lunacy is my favourite story of all time, do not insult it by comparing SIW with Lunacy.


i have the bad habit to read with my eyes over the bottom of the page - so whenever i scroll, i get spoiled a bit. so the ending wasn't as flushing for me, as for others...
anyways - GREAT STORY! I just love, how you could turn this into something nice and how you got that out of the sad part - stories, which let one of the mane 6 die just suck =(


Try not to read comments before the story, spoilers are very common.

I have to say, bravo good sir. For any of you who have read the Silent Ponyville series (you know which part I mean), I really thought I knew where this was going. The depressing lead up felt all too close to the bathroom scene in some of those alternate endings....but you, my good sir, tricked me. Kudos, again, for your happy but almost horribly depressing ending.

Oh my God


If I had money

I would give it to you

All of it

This story was beautiful, sad and overall, amazing.

Alas, it did not make me cry. I only just remembered that I don't cry.

when she walked to the water i stopped breathing and kept repeating no under my breath. were it not for the last sentence, i never would have stopped crying.:fluttercry:

i know the feel bro.
i am 15, bullied all my life. i only have had 1 true friend before middle school, and he hates me now.
my GF used to be the only thing between me and death, and she had to use force once to keep me here. without her, i would have no friends at all. (all my "friends" are her friends)
that said, this show and fandom is actually starting to return a little bit of my soul back. also, when you wear a brony shirt to school and someone in the ring of people who has hated you your entire life turns out to be a brony as well, and agrees to back you up if that friend group started to bring it to you again, it restores at least a little faith in humanity. at least bronymanity.
i can really identify with this story. i felt that way once... very good job.
