Dat Title :rainbowkiss:

sounds promising, ill give it a read later.

Carl Sagan?

Carl Sagan.

not a sunrise...

I have no idea what's going on, but shit appears to have never been more real than it is at this moment.

Oh, and by the end of this story, you owe us a morning filled with four hundred million suns. Just saying.

Tracking, and awaiting another amazing chapter!

Beautifully spun imagery, and good work weaving in canon history. I'm intrigued to learn more about this version of Equestria you have created.
Keep including descriptions about light. I liked the idea of the stainglass window's light on Luna.

grr im so confused your forcing me to track:twilightangry2: and like:twilightangry2::twilightangry2: kill him/her fluttershy:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:
:yay: yay!!!


... but a galaxy rise.
A morning filled with 400 billion suns.
The rising of the milky way.

awww man.
This was really good.
I teared up not gonna lie.

This seems like it could be amazing. I'm still waiting on that galaxy rise, though.

Confoud this story, it drives me to favorite it.

405101Thanks! I was actually pretty proud of that part because I came up with the description after pushing through some pretty severe writer's block.

I am not quite sure what is going on, but what I am sure of is that I am enthralled with this story.

awww poor Fluttershy.:fluttercry:

but wait...missing presumed dead! HE might still be alive!:yay:

So, the first chapter is sometime in the future and this is where the story starts chronologically?

Wait, Pinkie Pie can sing? This really is an alternate universe!

grr ive read so many what if things happend diffrent i had ot reread the prolog to remeber which this was but im loving it


OH SHYET, so much drama. Looking forward to figuring out just exactly what's going on...

This... this is an amazing opening, and I'm incredibly excited to read the next chapter which is already posted, but I wanted to stop and comment that I have no idea where this is going. Is this going to be an adventure to oppose Discord? This Witch person Luna mentioned? Was Discord stopped by that dark magic? I don't know what's happening. D:

*goes on to chapter 2 hoping for some clarifications*

buck    /bʌk/ [buhk]
1. the male of the deer, antelope, rabbit, hare, sheep, or goat.

stal·lion   /ˈstælyən/ [stal-yuhn]
an uncastrated adult male horse, especially one used for breeding.

All this jumping around in the timeline is confusing, and it doesn't help that the only section not labeled "Day 1" is Clover's, even though the sections in this chapter are clearly different points in time from the two sections in Chapter 1, which are themselves different points in time both labeled "Day 1". I know the sections are named different things, Armageddon, Comprehension, something else... but it just seems needlessly complicated. I don't know, you're the one who's writing this, you have a better idea of what you're trying to do than I do, maybe I'll understand it in a few chapters, but for now I'll just be confused.

Despite how it may sound, I am enjoying this story so far, and I'm definitely looking forward to more. Particularly hoping you continue where the second section of Chapter 1 left off, with Celestia and Luna finding Twilight in a crater, soon. I'm most eager to find out what was going on there.

This is a good story but it seems like we just stepped into the middle of it and not the beginning


I know what buck means. There's just no horse-specific word for the concept I wanted. If I'm limited to just "stallion" and "colt" it makes it awfully hard to create any nuanced meaning. And there won't be any more jumping around in the timeline. That was for the prologue only.

This... Is relevant to my interests. I shall accompany you on the journey you shall surely weave. Onward and upwards!

Congratulations to your Equestria Daily feature CDRW:pinkiesmile: I can't wait to see where this story will be going, I'm always looking for some nice grimdark stories.:pinkiehappy:

518840 Thanks! I hope the next chapter will be to your liking.

Okay... before I start something I'm going to be very unhappy with... is this a "Tyrantlestia" fic?

666906 Short answer, no. Long answer, kinda. Longer answer, spoilers.

Well, okay... I'll give it a try, then... but I'm warning you, if I don't like it, I'll... I'll... um... stop reading?

670435 NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :fluttercry:

I will admit that I don't usually read Dark fics, but I've got to just for that title... Look forward to the morning filled with 400 billion suns... The rising of the milky way... :rainbowkiss: Totally want to make a Sagan OC now...

Good choice of title, it interests me enough to read this. Let's hope it can live up to the scope of the title you've given it:

"We on earth marvel, and rightfully so, at the daily return of our single sun. But from a planet orbiting a star in a distant globular cluster, a still more glorious dawn awaits. Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise. A morning filled with 400 billion suns, the rising of the milky way. An enormous spiral form with collapsing gas clouds condensing planetary systems, luminous super giants, stable middle aged stars, red giants, white dwarfs, planetary nebulas, super novas, neutron stars, pulsars, black holes, and, there is every reason to think, other exotic objects that we have not yet discovered."

You asked for a comment and so here it is! I don't have much to say though, I'm just enjoying the story.

More. Of. This.

It's been so long that I forgot the story and had to go back and reread it.


*knock knock*

692427 Sorry, :ajsleepy: I'm trying to make sure that doesn't happen again.

I like it. :pinkiesmile:

Have a good one.

"Hi, I'm Puppysmiles!"

Woot for pink undead ghoul filly wearing yellow spacepony suit! :yay:

reads like the beginning of a zombie apocalypse

I don;t know what's going on. Focusing too much on Rainbow Dash bro, it gets old.

we shall see :moustache:

About how many chapters do you estimate it'll take to get back to the climax shown in chapter 1? I'm guessing it's gonna' be a good, long while.
