That ending really struck a chord. :raritycry:
Loved it! Have a thumb! :twilightsmile:

Great job! :pinkiehappy:

At the ending I cried so bad even worse than how I cried at the end of doctor who which is really saying something:raritycry:

This is a great story that made me emotional which is also a good thing bravo!:raritywink:

This concept is used to hell and back. I can tell you right now that this is nothing original, but the ending had enough feels to cushion that blow.

Oh my god.
That was so sad...
*upvote* :fluttercry:

1590916 Has it really been done before? I figured it has, but...
Oh well, :derpyderp2:

She died before she could finish writing her name.:raritycry::fluttershbad: How sad!

Beautiful, it really is. The narration is easily attributed to Twilight, and writing one last letter to the Princess is very much something that seems in character.

I also love that so many stories focus on their favorite pony finding a way to avoid death, or follow out beautifully only for the author to go back and say 'But it's OK because...' Don't get me wrong, I enjoy those stories too, as long as they're written well, but seeing one like this where it's short, simple, and sweet is heartwarming.

I personally think Celestia would be proud to the point of tears of her little pony, and while this is far too sad and mature a concept to ever be an episode, this is really a wonderful ending note, and this will forever be, I think, what I see Twilight doing, and writing, last.

So with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face,
Thank you.

I know right? That is just sad. :fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritycry::raritydespair:

Amazing story here. I loved it and was getting sad at parts of it.

No tears are shed manlier, than the tears of a Marine. You have my vote.

This was a really great and sad story, and the part with Twilight writing her name just got sadder. :fluttercry:
You did a great job writing this. :twilightsmile:

DEM FEELS. THIS IS NOT WHAT I HAD PLANNED. BUT DEM FEELS!!!!:applecry::fluttercry::raritydespair:

(Translation: Good job! It was sad, but it was beautiful!)


Not even with my best background music did I even get teary-eyed.
But it was pretty touching, so you get my vote. :twilightsmile:

Why do keep reading sad stories?
I'm going to break my feels if I keep this up.
Great story though! I'm glad I read it, even though it did sucker punch me right in the heart.

Well, my health bar is going down rapidlyI can barely keep my eyes open and my stamina bar feels like its fading. I’m going to wait here for 4 hours… and leave my controller. I love you my wife, my Daughter, my Son. My King. Goodnight.

Your Faithful Guard, Eli---

i was crying during the whole thing, but that ending was like a giant wave of sadness and tears :raritycry: :fluttercry: :raritydespair::fluttershbad:

I do want to say that the story is something I've never seen before, but info tells me it is unoriginal. Either way, the way this was written is very "in-character". I do not really admire it a ton, i will give it no vote. I will not give it a bad rating because it really wasn't that bad, but at the same time it wasn't all that great either. BRAVO on your work though, i know that the writer does have talent. :twilightsmile:
I hope to see a sadder story sometime, one to at least make me shed one tear.

I saw the title...not sure my computer could handle a flood of manly tears, how sad is it?

I have read many fics like this but this one is really touching. I love how you did the opposite with the wonder bolts and dash. The ending was sad too. Very well done.

manly tears *sniff* oh god,that ending! :raritydespair:

Yeah, these ones get me every time... Nicely written and a perfect size. Well done capturing the moment.

I... I.... Waaaaaaahhaaaaa :raritydespair: :applecry: :raritycry: :fluttershysad: :pinkiesad2:

That ending was beautiful :fluttercry:

Oh my Celestia, this was amazing! Well done, truly, truly, well done. I cried really freakin' hard, more so at the end. 10 out of 10 my friend.

OUCH! MY FUCKING FEELS! :fluttercry:

That comment also made me feel sadder.

:applecry::fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritydespair: wow......i enjoyed it a lot. to me i could feel the feelings. Great job.

Grab my thumb,great story!:fluttercry::raritycry::raritydespair::pinkiesad2:

I can imagine that neither the sun nor the moon rose for a long day after this letter was received; some ponies touch even the hearts of the gods.

That was beautiful and sad good job :fluttershysad:

tears was shed over this letter .. up'd n fav'd

maybe a follow-up where one reads about celestia recieving the letter ? .. just a idea ..

1591653 Thank you for your criticism; sometimes I actually doubt I'm really that great when I get completely positive comments :derpytongue2: Alas, I do have another sadfic idea, hopefully a more original one. If not original, then I'll try to make it worth it :twilightblush:


sniff... That was beautiful. Nothing more to say. Just....beautiful.

1591564 Beautiful song too. Read the story to it, multiplied the feels by x10 to the power of 149845.

:raritycry: my feels I haven't cried this much sense I read my little dashie I am :raritycry: tears of joy and sadness.

1591564 that song, fits this story far too well :fluttercry:

This... this is the sort of shit that turns people into Final Fantasy villains that want to end all suffering by destroying everything. :fluttercry:

It was soooooo sad :'( but kinda happy at the same time it was something I could see twilight doing though kinda broke my heart :( :fluttercry:

I put music with the fanfic reading I dunno how well it actually works with it but I found it fitting for something so sad :') hope you guys like it though ^^ keep up the awesome work dude ^^

Oh God, the feels, they're everywhere, they're coming to get us... no, n o! #urk#


I shed manly tears over this:raritycry:

1618632 Thank you so much, I'm grinning like a complete moron right now. :heart: That's beautiful

I finally read it.....:raritycry::raritydespair:
I am glad I read it though, I enjoyed it greatly.
Also, dat ending ;~;

Ijust found this story by accident, and it's purely sad. I actually heard music from this:

as I read it.:fluttercry::raritydespair: I think it fits nicely. But anyway, great story.

many cords upon the tapestry, some long, others short. Many paths upon the road of life, but in truth all share the same fate. A beautiful reminder that one we will all meet in the long tommorow

Did you intend to brutaly murder my feels?:raritycry:
