Princess Twilight Sparkle will never truly die, and never know what happens to those she loves once they pass beyond the veil.

But then, one day, she comes up with an idea of how she might find out what lies beyond death.

What price will she pay for this knowledge?

That is all I have to say.

Before reading, list of things that won't end well, this.

Oh man. That ending was perfect.

Nicely written. :rainbowlaugh: Anyone could've told Twilight that dead people are jerks. Most of them completely ignore you.

her return was said to be a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle that no pony should miss.

That line right there would've made me laugh if you had instead written:

her funeral was said to be a once-in-a-lifetime event that no pony should miss.

You also probably should've given a quick mention that Spike was at Applejack's deathbed with the others. Why wouldn't AJ want one of her last remaining closest friends there?

She was married twice and assassinated three times, once by her second husband who caught her cheating on him with Spike.

Twilight’s kirin guards would have lunged to her defense, but she spread her wings to hold them back.

SCANDAL :raritystarry:

Applejack’s thread was easy enough to spot – it was Applejack-colored, and, when she took it in her mouth and gave it a tug, Applejack-flavored as well.

She felt Applejack-textured as well, and was neither warm, nor cold, but Applejack temperature.

How does she know these things? :rainbowderp:

“I’m afraid that will never happen,” Celestia said. “To live eternally is our blessing, and our curse.”
Luna looked at Celestia with a tiny smile, then shook her head. “Whatever you say, dear sister.”

Do you just go blabbing these things to everypony, Twilight?

I wonder how she escaped the [redacted] party. Clearly, it took a while.

Great story, upvoted, favorited, deserves a feature. :heart:

Ha. That does emphasize the absurdity a bit more, yes.

Spike was at her deathbed a few months ago when everypony thought that she was surely going to die any day now, but her wish to Twilight was to live as long as possible so she lived a little longer than they were willing to wait around. Twilight was there because she cheated.

SCANDAL

She is the princess of scandal!

She felt Applejack-textured as well, and was neither warm, nor cold, but Applejack temperature.

How does she know these things?

:facehoof:

I wonder how she escaped the party. Clearly, it took a while.

I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you. First. And myself. Since the relevant concepts cannot be explained to the living.

Dammit, Applejack :facehoof:

I cannot emphaze enough how I love this fic.
It deconstructs banal horseapple fics SO WELL.
:heart:

Loved it. :pinkiehappy:

Aww, everypony ends up in indescribable-land as jerks? That's no fun. :facehoof:

2708438 Well, it's no fun for would-be necromancers. It's impossible to say whether or not it's fun for everypony else.

Twilights dead no what she said the dead are...... what happend to twilight next is she looked dead and celestia beried her. :trollestia: :trollestia: :trollestia:
Good story i like :raritystarry: but where is the fluttershy? I tell fluttershy her comment. :fluttershbad:
My comment. :rainbowkiss: :twilightsheepish: :moustache: :eeyup: :pinkiegasp: :pinkiehappy:

2340358 If it emphasizes the absurdity, then edits are to be in the makings!

The afterlife is literally beyond words. So Pinkie Pie invented some new ones. :pinkiehappy:

Hilarious story. Especially since it also addresses a question few people seem to have considered: what is Twilight the princess of? Fate is certainly a good choice.

In any case, thank you for a fantastic counterpoint to the immortality blues.

By the way -- the thing I liked most about this is how confident Celestia is about living forever and how the other alicorns all know -- naw it isn't happening -- and are like yeah um lets change the topic.

Heartstrings and Sweetie Drops

Not Lyra (Heartstrings) and Bon Bon

You trying to start shit, mate? :trixieshiftleft:
Really fun story, I had a blast reading this thing. The scene in the afterlife, with all the dead ponies tugging those strings, that was actually pretty awesome.

I kinda wish Twilight had stayed dead...

Last paragraph. People.

There are no people in Equestria.
