Some Leech


I...I am a monument to all your sins...

E

Much like the Sun's passage overhead, ages come and go. The land of Equestria is going through a change, much like it has countless times throughout the aeons, yet it is bitter sweet. For one ancient ruler, almost older than time itself, the dusk quickly approaches...

Author's Note
This is my personal sendoff to G4. I honestly can't say if G5 will live up to its predecessor, but I felt like trying to bridge the gap between what we know and what is soon to be...

The earliest I’ve ever been to one of your stories, and it’s about feels and not fapping. :trollestia:

And the title isn’t aliterate!

in the end no one immortal all, will pass in time, and with their passing the worlds becomes more darker and less bright,
we fade hoping the next generation will take our place and make a brighter world
we fade so they can shine

I find the whole premise of G5 fascinating -- Twilight Sparkle's "Creaturequestria, " in the time that passed since FiM, completely failed as a state, and ponykind somehow reverted back to tribal segregation. Not exactly the sort of scenario one should use to advocate tolerance and diversity ...

Sad but uplifting at the end.

Peeing over his shoulder, seeing her ponderously lean towards him, he grinned.

Uh, "Peering" perhaps? Though I wouldn't put it past Anon. :)

Thanks for the save. I fixed 'em

That picture is not indicative of the contents within!! How dare you try and get me excited for a Giant Celestia fic and hit me feels!!!

Funny story about that

The cover was done by my buddy CBTwi. I originally had an idea for a silly, lewd story, but it ultimately morphed into this. It's weird how my brain works.

Alright...

Yeah, I've had a few, but
Real talk, I got a tightness in my chest writing this. I love Cele with an unbridled passion, and it hurt to write this

Celestia really is my favorite because she’s seemed to hold on to her kingdom for so long without totally falling apart.

I certainly feel the failure that is the Federation is something deserved especially with how disappointingly poorly mlp has been warped by fans over the years.

I can only really hope that Twilight truly managed to escape and find somewhere else she can be appreciated.

Truly Excellellent. Cash Money.

I can totally understand. This one hurt in a beautiful way. She will always light our hearts.

Amen to that, Brother

damn I was not expecting this to be a leech story...

Rest well G4

Very beautiful and poetic I dare say

Ligit and fitting story for the sun cheeked Titan's last run. :moustache:

This was beautiful, Leech... tugged my heartstrings just right to remind me that G4 was something special, and now it's well and truly gone. Only we, the fandom, keep it going... but to mention another finale Mr DeLancie was involved in ... "All Good Things..."

I've never watched the show, never felt the desire to. In fact the only reason I'm even on this site, the only reason I have anything to do with the fandom, is because a writer that has long since left off handedly said on one of his fan fiction stories that he also wrote here, and I on a whim checked it out. Since then, there have been a number of times I've simply not even thought of this place, and spent months not checking it. But I always remembered and returned, binging through the stories and stumbling across new ones that caught my interest. And that has been it for me. Despite that, this story actually made me feel a slight tightness in my chest. As corny as it is, I can almost feel the pain and uncertainty of yours in regards to the future of the fandom, and I've gotten the same feeling from many others as well. I actually kind of regret not trying my hand at giving back to the fandom, because even if I didn't want to watch the show, I got a great deal of enjoyment from this place over the years. I have the most bizarre feeling of seeing an era that I never belonged to end, and I don't particularly like it.

But who knows, maybe the new show will be bigger, better, and bring back everyone who left. If so, I might very well give it a try. Who knows.

It is with a heavy, yet proud heart that I commit this fic to the best of the best bucket. Enjoy this small, and ultimately meaningless accolade my friend, for you have earned it.

This is a story that has been put on my favorites shelf to come back to time and time again, it is gloriously sad but also uplifting. To quote that cheesy ass line I am almost certain everyone here will have heard at some point: "An ending is just a new beginning" A line that is hard to take to heart but when done so it gives closure. I have yet to actually finish gen 4 but... I think after reading this I might just do that... it might just be time for gen 4 to come to a happy ending for me... (Or I could finish it and continue reading the amazing works of art on this site)
An ending and a beginning are different but go together, lets use the ending of gen 4 for the beginning of remembering and enjoying what we loved about the show and what the community has provided for us and let us never forget our roots as a community: this show! I am proud to be a brony, and I am honored to be a part of this community! :twilightsmile:

I haven’t followed the fandom closely, let alone from the season 1 or G1, nor have I read any of the leaks or previews of G5, just the occasional screenshot.

That said, the vast majority of this story flew over my head.

a novel i say, thats what this is!:twilightsmile:

This is one of the few moments where, above anything, music came to mind.

To the future, friends. The ride never ends.

... It is interesting, a beautiful and sad farewell ... just reading it has made my mind fly, that the muse wakes up, thanks for your beautiful writing

It was my honor

At the end of days, at the end of time
When the Sun burns out will any of this matter?
Who will be there to remember who we were?
Who will be there to know that any of this had meaning for us?

And in retrospect I'll say we've done no wrong
Who are we to judge what's right and what has purpose for us?
With designs upon ourselves to do no wrong
Running wild unaware of what might come of us

The Sun was born, so it shall die
So only shadows comfort me
I know in darkness I will find you giving up inside like me
Each day shall end as it begins
And though you're far away from me
I know in darkness I will find you giving up inside like me

Without a thought I will see everything eternal
Forget that once we were just dust from heavens far
As we were forged we shall return, perhaps some day
I will remember you and wonder who we were

The Sun was born, so it shall die
So only shadows comfort me
I know in darkness I will find you giving up inside like me
Each day shall end as it begins
And though you're far away from me
I know in darkness I will find you giving up inside like me

Surprisingly on point

I was alongside the other 4channers when this first kicked off in 2010. It’s been one absolute motherfucker of a rollercoaster since then, and while it wasn’t a smooth journey (mostly thanks to Hasbro), it’s also something I wouldn’t change.
For better or for worse, it’s been one hell of a ride, my dudes.
I’m cautiously optimistic for G5, but I can’t quite help but be cynical about it.

But not to end on a low note.
Leech, I’ve got to say, you’ve created something that I don’t think I’m going to forget any time soon.
This will stay in my favourites for years to come, and I have no doubt I’ll stumble across it again and enjoy it just as much as I did.
Thank you.

Leech you old fart you’re supposed to make me horny not sad.

I know it's related to the plot and the context is different, but I can't look past the artwork lol.

It was my honor and privilege to write this - having said that, I plan on writing more horse words for years to come
Even if Hasbro has left G4 behind, I'll keep on giving it plenty of love

Regardless of what I write, fumbling for the tissue box is usually the final outcome

It's totally safe for work and never had any lewd intentions at all ;>_>

"Every life has its end, even immortal ones: When their story ended and had no more pages left to fill or the will to fill the pages was no more."
But it looks like Celestia and Anon has few more drops of ink and pages left. However they may say goodbye, it will be of their own terms.

"The Old fade away, leaving their world to the next generation to do their part. Such is the way of nature. But how can one wish to flourish when they throw away everything their forefathers stood for?"

How do they wish to flourish?

They say one swallow doesn't make a summer, but what happened? There is no more magic, friendship or harmony. The far distant future is like the times before Hearts warming or after the supposed victory of legion of doom! There better be a good explanation for all of this...

But in the end, well done. This was a very Nostalgic work.
I never stopped to be amazed by your astonishing penmanship.
And even if Gen 5 opens its book, please continue writing Gen 4 stuff as well. The gold mine is not dry yet and there are more tissue boxes in the pentry, so to speak.
By the meantime, happy writings and have a GREAT rest of your day.

And even if Gen 5 opens its book, please continue writing Gen 4 stuff as well.

I have every intention to
Have a great day yourself

It's likely the leash was of her own making, to keep the world safe from her mental decline.
But even with their inevitable loss of faculty, there are moments of lucidity--often right up to the very end. At such times, they deserve to be allowed to fly free once more.

After all, she was born free. She should be allowed to die free, too.:trollestia:

I like the cut of your jib

Honestly, I thought about explaining more in this, could have easily gone on and on about a metric ton of details, but I felt it best to leave some openness for the readers' imagination to have some freedom

This was lovely, Leech. A good sendoff. Let's hope G5 is as good or at least as memorable as G4 is :heart:

Wow this was kinda nice.

Can't believe how many years have gone by, since I first got brought into the fandom...this was beautiful, Leech. Best of wishes, just don't burn yourself out!

Don't worry
Despite having been making content for 3+ years, the fires are burning as bright as ever

A giant Celestia?
Does Bendy know about this?

A beautiful sadness.
