The Sleepless Beholder

I just headbutt the keyboard till my ideas spill out into writing. Sometimes it works.


Celestia has witnessed many things in her centuries of life, among them being many sunsets that have involuntarily pained her. But even a pony as ancient as her can be taken by surprise. Especially when it involves a filly’s innocent actions.

Inspired by the adorable Art by BranewashPV that you can see as the cover.

I liked this. Write more if you enjoy writing.

That was an enjoyable little story. Thanks for writing it.

A lovely little story. I'd be happy to read more.

Wallflower must have taken her "extra adorable" pills today...and then ate a few more, because this was adorable!

I wish she would take me with her.

plz write more of this

Rising the moon...

I've always wondered if this is intentional on the part of authors. It seems like it happens too much to not be, but I can't be sure.

Did you mean "raising?"

More CelestiaFlower friendshipping! Yes! Also:LunaFlower.

You seemed to be wobbling back and forth between present and past tense at some points. It seems churlish to grammar nerd such a lovely story but it was a bit distracting.

Anyway I loved this.

Could be, the definitions are similar. I'll correct it anyway,





Thank you all! We'll see if I write more someday.

Hahahaha blame (Or thank) the cover picture :rainbowlaugh:

When you finish Wally Meguka, we can arrange something

I was afraid some past tenses would inevitably slip by me. Glad that you loved it anyway :twilightsmile:

"¡Yes!" The filly exclaims, brimming with joy. "I already have some ideas."

She was so happy, her joy slipped into another language!

That was adorable, precious and just too cute. The idea of tiny Wallflower floating up into the sky was funny, but the conversation with Celly really made it heartwarming.


The princess offers her back for Wallflower to ride on, which the filly accepts with excitement, and as they fly towards the gardens, Celestia wonders if she may have found the Kindness that her sister needs.

Do I smell an AU? Because that would be amazing.



I almost thought you two were the same person

Thank you!

Motherly Tia and cute Wally is a powerful combination.

'Avengers Assemble' the Elements Bearers? You might be on to something.

Fly me to the moon,
Let me play among the stars... :raritystarry:

I swear, Beholder, you write some of the cutest and heartwarming stories.

Oh, and.

No even I can reach the moon

Celestia, the author made your tongue slip up!

SMASHED that favorites button! ,oh and the like button too ;)
i LOVE this!!!


I swear, Beholder, you write some of the cutest and heartwarming stories

I should write more then :rainbowkiss:

Celestia, the author made your tongue slip up!

Curse my Spanish seeping into the words! :rainbowlaugh:

(Frank Sinatra - Fly Me to the Moon)

It’s a good thing Wallflower isn’t as stubborn as some of the Apple clan.

“Not even I can reach the moon.”
“Not with that attitude!”

Oh, hell yes you should write more! This was one of the cutest stories I've seen on the site!

Well done.

Heartwarming and nicely cozy

“Come into my parlor, Ted. I have cookies!” -Reykan

That was incredibly sweet. Well done.

This is amazing.

I concur with the others. If there are more story ideas you have, I think it would be a shame not to share them. I would be glad to read more of this story, whether it is continued or separate.

Holy fetch this was absolutely adorable!

That was absolutely adorable. Love it.

This story is cute and adorable.:twilightsmile: I really like it.:pinkiehappy:

Goddess of Empathy and now this?! More. Yes. Please!

Please do more, this was an absolute fantastic read! So sweet and emotional. :twilightsmile:

Should I do more?

Is this a rhetorical question or a legitimate question?

Either way, I say "Yes, please."

Magnificent and here I had dispaired at only 1.7k...

This gives me early science fiction vibes. It seems like something edgar allan Poe or jules verne would write.

If it was actually Jules Verne story, it would be about Pinkie Pie shooting herself to the moon with party canon. :pinkiecrazy:

A lovely, feel good, oneshot. I found this very pleasant to read and leaving a happy, positive feeling at the end.

I'd love to see more of this, if you find the time and motivation to do so.

This one deserve a sequel.

This was so sweet and pure. I absolutely love it.

More, please.

Do as many of those as you like, that was really sweet.

This has to be the sweetest story I've ever heard.

Awwww... this was so nice. I want a follow-up. I have to know how Luna took meeting Wallflower (because, obviously they have to now).

this is such a sweet little story T-T Thank you for sharing

Given the response, this certainly demands a follow-up. Wally and Tia will need to gather a few more friends though.

...Damn it I need a new heart now, I HNNGGGGGG'ed too hard at this story and it broke....thanks a lot!

Keep up the wonderful work.
