The Red Parade

Cars are still parked outside. If the rapture had happened, why was it unrecognizable? Why was the sky blue? Why did no one tell me? Do these things not announce themselves?



"You’ve reached Octavia Melody. I can’t come to the phone right now. Please leave a message at the tone.”

Fiddlesticks makes a long overdue phone call to her sister.

The idea of ponies with phones is kind of weird and jarring but this was still nicely done. Congrats on the second place too.

I never really thought of that since I do far more drastic alterations with other stories lol. And yeah, I was thinking more of a button phone but I couldn't find a good cover image, so I had to go with a dial. Thanks though, glad you enjoyed!

Imagine trying to use a dial phone with hooves.

"... To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the keypad with your hoof now."

Don't cry, Celestia dammit, don't cry...

I'm crying now. :pinkiesad2:

This is just good writing.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

This is................wow.
Just wow.

I thought this might be building toward a murder confession, but I can't say I'm disappointed with how it turned out. :)

Haha, I can see why you'd get that based on the story descriptions! Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed it, as this is personally one of my favorite stories that I've written!

I feel like I've read a pivotal chapter of a larger story. I don't know if I'd like where this is going, but I still want to see where it leads.
