LossThere has been the days in everyponies life, the days of loss and sorrow; the days when you believe that you can no longer withstand the pain that burrows into your heart. The loss of a loved one family, or even a life-partner sticks to our hearts harder than anything that we could ever expect to feel. Loss; an emotion that soaks everything in its path in a field of sadness and dread. The thought often compels most of us once we have lost someone dear to our heart; Is there anything we can do to keep them happy?
"Twilight?" Rainbow Dash asked quizzically as she lay in the pale white bed, the heart monitor at a steady yet seemingly slow pace.
"Y-yes, Rainbow?" Twilight answered, her voice weak and strained from the sickness she was fighting.
Tears started to form in her eyes as she looked into her partners violet eyes. The color was still there; the spark that shown of her life, however, growing ever fainter. Rainbow stood there, staring into her eyes, hoping
The Final LetterDear Princess Celestia,The Final Letter3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As you may have already known, my time is soon to come. I wish I could say that I'm not frightened of death, as I could have said when I was once a young mare, but that has changed much over the decades. I have learned of how true friendship is a force that cannot be stopped over the powers of time, death, and solitude, but as long as you have your friends by your side there is nothing to keep you from where you wish to be. I hope that I will be able to see them again, and I wish to be able to tell them how much I appreciate what they have done for me through the years as my best of friends. I have a feeling that they know this though, and they watch me from wherever they are now telling me to live out what I can.
When you sent me to Ponyville to make new friends, I was hesitant. I just wanted to finish with what needed to be done and then return to my studies. But you seemed to know what I needed, not only what Equestria needed that day. You knew I needed fr
The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 1Fluttershy was fast asleep in her cottage, not a single worry flowing through her mind. She was in a land where everything was perfect. The trees swayed in the gentle cooling wind, animals of all species and sizes pranced around happily. Her lips curved to a slight smile as she looked over the plains, seeing how happy all of the animals were. She walked among the field of animals, wishing that she could have this back at home where everything was real. She knew that this was all a dream. Fluttershy had had it many times before, but she always felt as if it was missing something, or rather, somepony.The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She continued to walk among the animals, her smile slowly disappearing. She knew who it was that she wanted to have and love, but it was something she never thought would work out. This mare, she was the most beautiful thing Fluttershy had ever seen. She was elegant, yet she had a certain spunk about her that drove her crazy, but she loved it at the same time. She was driven to get w
The Final Letter - From CelestiaPrincess Celestia stared down at the resting place of her former student, who was now resting in peace. She was holding a letter with her magic above the grave, contemplating whether or not she would leave just yet, or stay a little longer. Using her magic, she slowly unraveled the silky violet ribbon that held the letter closed. She read it over once again, a small tear forming in the corner of her eye.The Final Letter - From Celestia3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My Faithful Student,
I am regretful that I was not able to reach you at a sooner time, and I wish you luck wherever you may go. Most of Equestria has heard of your passing by now, and many are in mourn. You have touched many of the brightest and exceptional souls in Equestria Twilight, I sincerely hope you know that. You will always be missed by everyone that you knew; as well as by Luna and I.
Luna did not take your passing as well as I did; but do not mistake taking your passing well as not caring or you, Twilight. I cared for you very much, but as the ruler of Equestria I simply

Rainbow Dash paced back and fourth in her home, the clouds below her feet making a poomph sound with every step. It was early in the morning, early enough to where the sun had not yet risen over the horizon. If anything, she was supposed to still be asleep until it was at least noon. Her thoughts weighed heavy on her mind, and she just had to tell somepony about what she was feeling. Rainbow Dash wasn't even sure of what she felt. Love? Or was it just liking a mare?
She knew that the feelings that ran around her mind were deep, true emotions. But she just couldn't come to herself and accept the fact that who she had come to love was a mare, and one of her closest friends. Fluttershy was one of the most beautiful creatures she had ever laid her eyes upon. Any time that she was near her Rainbow's heart beats a hundred times faster, and butterflies filled her stomach. Her voice sent shivers down her spine; her sweet, calm, and quiet words echoing

Ponies have always been afraid of death and what it may bring. They fear the solitude of eternity, but who's to say that there is anything to fear? Nopony has ever came back from the dead to tell their tale, and for that matter, nopony ever will. The memories of our lifetime reside deep within our minds, hidden away until our final moments in this world. In your final moments of life after death, you have 7 minutes to relive your life. Funny thing it is how the brain has 7 minutes of activity after you supposedly 'die'.
Twilight Sparkle stood in a vast abyss of nothingness, unsure of where she was or how she had gotten there in the first place. She looked around frantically, trying to scan the abyss for any possible exit or somepony to tell her where she was.
'Twilight!' she could hear Rainbow Dash call to her, 'Twilight! Wake up!'
Just Like HerIt was a mildly warm sunny day, the birds singing and the flowers in bloom. The playground swarmed with small fillies and colts alike. Screams of joy echoed throughout as those who played hide-and-seek were found. There was one small filly who wasn't playing or having fun with the rest of the ponies. She was sitting out in the middle of the previously mowed field, the scent of fresh grass making its way through her nose and calming her slightly as she looked towards the sky. A fresh tear made its way down the orange coat, slightly darkening the fur as it passed along.Just Like Her3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Scootaloo had always wanted to be just like her, but never had the chance to. The 'gift' that she was given was her nightmare. Other fillies and colts called her 'chicken' for being the one flightless pegasus that they had known. Sure, she had two other friends that loved her for who she was, but the mockery passed onto them for being an affiliate to the chicken. They seemed to be able to handle it themselves, but she fel
The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 11"... It was real?" Rainbow sputtered, pulling her body in tighter under the protection of Fluttershy's outstretched wings.The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 113 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Yes... it was Dashie," Fluttershy told her, tightening her grip on Rainbow's body, trying to comfort her.
Rainbow Dash continued to curl under the darkness that Fluttershy was providing her, her eyes still burning, but with less intensity than they had before. The task ahead for Rainbow would be painful, but she knew that she had to do it eventually whether she would have wanted to or not. Dash opened her eyelids slowly, more and more light steadily entering her corneas. It burnt as the light flowed through her magenta eyes, but she pressed on in hopes that what she had dreamt was actually real after all. She stopped her flow of tears in an attempt to look tough for her Fluttershy, but that was an effort in vain as water began to flow forth once again, flooding what vision she had and cooling her eyes.
It took at least half an hour before Rainbow Dash was able to
