Why do I write? Because I can't draw! I write mainly as an outlet, and don't take it too seriously. If you like what I write, awesome! If not, that's cool too.


My name is Doctor Stable. I've treated countless patients in my over a decade and a half service to the town that raised me. I'd never been caught up in any of the patients personal strifes or troubles, cold though that may seem. Although I'm not proud of it, I've lost numerous patients. Some to conditions beyond my control, some to diseases I could have easily cured, had I just run the proper test. I was unshakable. Until one day the hospital decided to break me, and I'm sad to say, I think it did.

Right in the feels, and you killed AJ too?! Jebus, what's wrong with you boy!? Great story though, I loved it. :twilightsmile:

It might be sleep deprivation addling my mind, but I kept thinking of Dr. Cox from Scrubs while reading this.

Oh man the feels. :fluttercry:

OH MAN THAT WAS SAD! :applecry: But it was still a beautiful story.

2125204 you should. Multiple Scrubs episodes inspired this fic.

2125201 Why do we hurt the ones we love? :ajsleepy:

After I read this... I laughed. I really need to find a new way of dealing with emotions, or one of these days a funeral is going to end badly...

*Sees the sad note*
Oh fuck... I think I'll pass this one...
*adds to read later*

Damn that was a sad one:applecry:

Personally, I thought that the line just before the page break was a brilliant misdirection. It gave me the whole, "blood turning to ice" feeling.

You know, by the title I thought it would be AB that was leaving us this time. I'm glad that wasn't the case, I don't know if I could stand one of those innocent fillies dying..:ajsleepy:

It's like ER but with pony's!

Good work ^^

This Storys perfect.

Huh. The writing was decent, and that was quite a good ending. Did make me feel a feel.

Overall? It was ok. 7/10. Nothing over the top, but I suppose that's good.

Album listen to during reading:

You know, it didn't help that I was listening to the Dead Island trailer music while reading this. Purely coincidental, I swear.

Anyway, good fic. Gave me a ton a feels. Kinda like Grey's Anatomy used to. And, much like Grey's Anatomy, this left me with a pleasant but of so sad feeling. So, good work. :heart:

I know what it's like to be this doctor...well kinda cause i've been a paitient in the ER anny more times than I tried to count (seroiusly, i tried to count but lost track at like 8). I also know what it's like to be AB. You sir, have touched my feeld but have not made me cry sadly. But it has brought up some happy memories form my past.

The problem with this story is the title may seem a little misleading to some (or is it chapter name? I'm not scrolling up to know, too lazy at scrolling.) Also, why big mac? I would think granny smith or AJ more than big mac. also, how did AJ die? And Granny smith? ( I must have missed something....NOTE: GET MORE SLEEP AND COFFEE :pinkiecrazy:)

Just please don't think of me as a idiot or whatever for this comment. Think of me as a crazy person :pinkiehappy:

You deserve this rating, in my opinion, of 4 hearts and one moustache out of 2 trollestias (MATH. WHO NEEDS IT :rainbowwild:)

Also a chicken for your troubles :scootangel:

2127932 AJ being dead was in a different fic I wrote, titled Lone Black Train. This takes place in the future, after Granny Smith has died.

2128069 Okay thanks.
Now that my mind is clear of that, I can get back to getting sleep. If I don't get some soon, i'm going to cry from sanity loss and begin ANOTHER derailment into the dark like so: :pinkiesad2::applejackconfused::derpytongue2::twilightangry2::rainbowwild::raritycry::pinkiegasp::fluttershbad::flutterrage::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

Oh shit, guess the time has come.
EDIT: After reading, I'm glad that it ended before he had to explain to AB and AJ, because that would have been PAINFUL.

A defibrillator isn't used to start someone's heart, it's used to stop their heart.

:fluttercry: Amazing way to capture the emotions of all of them
Sad story, but awesomely written :pinkiesad2:






:ajsleepy::applecry::fluttershbad::fluttercry::raritycry::raritydespair: NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG MAC!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:raritycry::raritydespair::raritycry::raritydespair::raritycry::raritydespair: (*RUNS INTO ROOM AND SLAMS DOOR, SOBBING*) BIG MAC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ouch, right at the feels.

So, this is the first chance I've had to read this. Mostly because I forgot about it until you posted that blog about the live reading. And, uh... yeah. Kinda depressing. Focusing on Applebloom more than Mac was a good move, albeit a bit of a low one.

Then again, it's a sadfic. The entire intention is to deliver a lead-filled glove below the belt. Repeatedly. And you did a decent job of that.

:fluttercry::fluttershbad::fluttershyouch::ajsleepy::raritydespair::raritycry::fluttershysad::applecry: Waaaaahhhh!!! Oh my God, I think you broke me. That's just so . . . so :fluttercry:

This... was shockingly well written.
Although I was expecting the doctor to go berserk and start to defibrillate Big Mac shock-trooper style and bring him back to life.. but I guess that wasn't going to happen.
The feels.. they haunt me once again.

heard scribbler's reading and... *sigh* that hurt man. that really hurt

Well, finally got around to marking this as read, even if I did pretty much read it a few times in the past. And ironic that I do so AFTER the latest episode featuring him, despite wanting to do so days ago. :rainbowhuh:

Pretty cruel, what you did to Big Mac here, even if it did make for a good story about a doctor blaming himself as opposed to keeping it together, losing a patient that was so young. :pinkiesad2: Though I'm not sure which story you're referring to from before this one with killing Granny (or her already being dead, at least, like in Den of the Dragon, which I hope you continue someday on top of a few others from the past), as I'm aware of at least one I've read by you with Applejack recently dying. Since I know I haven't read all of your stories, a few before I watched you (like Discord's Reign), but mostly ones AFTER I've watched you due to my laziness. :twilightblush: And technically, you DID kill Apple Bloom in Eternal Lament, unless that doesn't count for you not showing it and also killing everypony who wasn't immortal, pretty much. :pinkiecrazy:

Overall, a good story, even if it doesn't make me have feels like it might've when I first read this, despite cheapening the effect by not reading it wholly for whatever reason (I think). But I admit it was a sad story for a doctor who had done everything he could, only to again, lose a patient that was very young compared to his others, it sounded like and blame himself for breaking his promise (even if it wasn't a Pinkie promise).

Great story, brilliantly written, but it hurt.
Keep up the good work.
