Don't let your dreams be memes


Life goes by pretty fast. Sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses. Sometimes we forget what's really important.

Not trees though. Trees never forget. It's a shame they don't have voices to remind us.

'Yesterday is history, tommorow is a mystery, but today is a gift.'

This is lovely -- the story of the two sisters, told from the perspective of one of the few living things that can live as long as they do. It's melancholy sure, but not maudlin. And I like how it's hinted without actually saying it that the story at the end might just be the story of Twilight and her friends, with Celestia catching Luna up on what she missed. Nicely done!

I'm glad to hear you liked my story! I'm happy you caught on to the thematic parallels to Twilight's story, which were definitely intentional. If you want to interpret it as actually being Twilight's story, that's perfectly valid, but the main idea is just that they're sitting and reading together like they used to, and that their relationship has gone back to the way it used to be, which I tried to hammer home by using the exact same verbiage. That element was a bit meta, admittedly, but I think it works nicely.
