Being sad can be fun.


Right now, I'm in an unfamiliar bed, but even so it feels quite comfortable. I'm relaxed and safe, but I think that's because of the pony laying next to me. It's been over twenty years since I met her, and along with her there are a lot of ponies in the room with me. They're all really nervous and scared. But I'm okay, because she is here.
My name is Twilight Sparkle. I am the Archmage of Equestria, the youngest ever at forty five years old, and right now, I'm laying on my deathbed.
But that's okay.
As long as Luna is here, I'll be okay.

*looks at title and description, looks at other stories by the author. See's you also wrote Sundown.
So is this "Luna watches everyone die" the series?

On a more serious note enjoyed the chapter, granted don't like the idea of Twilight dying from anything but old age, but I can somewhat ignore that due to the story structure. somewhat.

I love TwiLuna I am dreading the Sad tag but I am gonna Soldier through.

Well written: check
Interesting: check
Romantic: check
Sad: Check
Twiluna: Double Check
Tear Shed: TBD at a later posting.

If they find whoever it was that "poisoned" Twilight, they're so screwed. I'ma keep an eye on this

And yet an other "twilight dies, and everypony is sad" fic. Almost as done to death as "pony X does random stuff" :ajbemused:
Not saying the story is bad, only saying the plot is a bit unoriginal :pinkiesad2:

With that said the fic is still :fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritydespair:

I haven't even read it, and yet...
The feels have already hit me from reading the description.

Twilight is wounded but stable ... Why are so many people assuming that she is going to die? :unsuresweetie:

1982678 she's stable for now, but slowly dying.

It was as though my very bones were turning to ice, the joints becoming solid

The concentrated life force of the creature enters your mind directly, due to the contact of your horns, and roots itself deeply, spreading and growing like a fire from there.

I felt my mind freeze over with the same sheet of ice that had claimed my body at the thought of where I would be in a few days.

I don't know what that note at the end is supposed to mean, but I am already anticipating the release of he second chapter! :D
And this chapter made me think so much, abouty own experiences, as well as different ways it could go, I cried 3 times in the hour I took to read it :fluttercry::fluttershbad::fluttershysad::raritycry::raritydespair:

Please don't kill twilight, do anything, but don't kill her, and don't let anyone sacrifice themselves either

well im not sure what this story is going to be all about but im curious and wanting more

1983461 Comrade, the tags are both "Tragedy" and "Sad"... Those often result in a sacrifice, but not necessarily.

Regardless, the author has a canvas before them. All we, as readers need to do, is to immerse ourselves in their work as best as we can: Even if the full picture isn't what you would normally prefer, you may like what you see by the end. :coolphoto:

For some reason this story will not disappear off my To read Favorites list. It just sits there at the top saying. "READ ME AGAIN, I COMMAND YOU!"

1983498 I know, but I read these in between classes, and I don't wanna start crying in the middle of the hallway like an idiot

Man that's a pretty crappy way to die Twilight.
Maybe the Elements can do something but I doubt it.


> looks at cover picture at title
> reads description
> check's authors other stories

>>ask's mother for a box of tissues

*sees pic for story* well, I'm gonna have to change a lot of avatar pics to not be constantly reminded of this

this is an interesting storie so far. can't wait to see how it turns out. :rainbowdetermined2:

Oh. My. God.
I did NOT expect this reaction from the first freaking chapter! My jaw literally dropped at seeing the amount of Faves and comments.
I can't even say anything other than thank you all 1000 times over!!:pinkiehappy:

1983505 Obviously Archmage Twilight Sparkle has used her infinite magic to prevent this story from leaving our unread lists.

1985026 You are more than deserving! Just PLEASE make sure you don't rush it. Too many sad fics are rushed either by design or by peer pressure.

1985153 Is it happening to you too?

Please, please continue! This is amazing work, you really bring Twilight to life. I can feel her, step into her character with ease. This is amazing.

I want it to be deep fried and covered in sprinkles. Can you get Pinkie Pie on that?

1985196 Happening to me, too.

You are an EXCELLENT writer. Extremely high quailty work, and a favorite from me.

Absolutely beautiful. Will be watching for more

I am going to read this, and make the decision whether or not to at you.
:fluttershysad: I can do this:pinkiecrazy:

very good. Very sad. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this. :twilightsmile:

It's amazing stories like these that make my "I don't like shipping" attitude drop for the duration of reading this ;)

This is awesome so far, don't stop!

the feel's they are to great:fluttershyouch:

Great so far, but I have to admit I'm somewhat bothered by the way Twilight solved the maze. Left-hand rule only works on simple mazes, where all the walls are connected. Disjointed mazes (and there's no way the Canterlot maze isn't) wouldn't work that way. You'd think Twilight would know that, wouldn't you?:twilightsheepish:

I have no problem with that. A good sad romance does the soul good.

So... this is one of those reminisce stories? it seems pretty promising, do carry on.

My god, the feeeeeeeeeeeeeeels....

Wow. Just... wow. The emotions this story conveys. Absolutely amazing. Please continue!

hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggg :fluttershyouch:

This story is going to make me feel all over the place :fluttercry:


So good. Sooo saaad!


EDIT: I've read both chapters of this story and again it does not remove itself from my to read list. :C

I honestly do not know what the problem could be, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. :fluttershysad:

D'aww. D'aww. D'aww. D'aww.

Things never remove automatically. You have to hit the button.

2005777 I think you are mis-interpreting what I am talking about.
I have this story on my Favorites.
I also have another story "A Novice Swordsman in the Canterlot Court"
I read the other stories recent update first, then went back to my favorites page. That story is now no longer there as I no longer have unread chapters in it.
Now I read Moonrise, After I finished reading the unread chapter I went back to my favorites but Moonrise is still there.
This is the page I am referring to (It will show your own unread favorites, not mine): Unread Favorites

Mines been doing that too. I've been waiting for days for a huge cliffhanger to update, just to find out that it did, and buried itself within my other stories.

I just read all my other updates, and then when this was the only one in the list (at the time) 'unread', i just hit mark all unread favorites as read, and it fixed itself. LEPShot? Do you have an unpublished chapter or something that was published at one time, but was unpublished? I'm thinking that might be the cause, if so.

Edit - added relevent comment reference.

I had chapter 2 sitting as Unpublished for a solid 4 hours before I published it, but other than that, no, sorry.
If the Elements could be used to prevent death/illness, I think that might cause some serious issues. That being said, I don't think Twi would be able to utilize her full power as Magic in her current state, even at Chapter 2.
