I love the writing here.  It's both wise and emotional.  That is writing at its purest.  It not only helps you understand, but it touches your soul.

To hear the dragon tell Spike this story, about how the mother saved her egg at the cost of her life, and how she lived on in the Crystal Heart.  It was very moving, dSana.  Has it been sitting in your imagination for a long time?

Very good use of black and white to tell this story.  I can practically feel the frigid wind blowing across the page.

As for the alicorns at the end. . . .  It's hard to know whether to approve of their actions or not.  But then . . . would Twilight and Spike have grown so close otherwise?  We may never know, and that may very well be the point.

Imperial powers are all the same in the end. They take things. And they say it's because they need them for strategic reasons, or because only they are fit to take care of those things, or because they deserve them. And probably they believe what they say. But in the end, they just do it because they can.

nope. This is a just a fan-comic. Although at times, you would sometimes wish that they were used in actual episodes.

"The dragoness who laid this egg perished in a great blizzard"

So Spike's mother is dead, then. :(

"Her only remaining son..."

But he has a LONG LOST BROTHER??? :)

Orgins! Although, if this is Spike's true parent, won't he not want to leave his space?

You mean stay where he is?

Yes. If this is the only way to connect with the heart, his true mother, wouldn't he not want to leave the dream thing he's in?

She may be his biological mother, but Spike was never longing for her - it was always about Twilight, the other mother he knows and loves :)

This just keeps getting heavier. Looks like there's hope, and an explanation for all that's happened. Great work, as always

Ah, this is a lot less darker than the-

Wait a tick, Celestia and Luna found him? Which means Spike is arguably over 1,000 years old?
