Another milestone reached: 10 pages of the main story left to go!


Some of you may be wondering why Spike is not at all sad about learning that his biological mother (Espera)  is long dead and waving her goodbye.

The simple answer is that there is no reason for him to be sad (except perhaps being sad/contemplative about her sad story in general).

She played no part in his life and he wasn’t on a mission to find her. Remember how canon Spike waved away opportunities to learn about her whatabouts?

Espera’s words echo this lack of attachment, when she mentions reuniting with “her“ family. She might have laid Spike’s egg over 1,000 years ago and sacrificed her life to save him (and his older sibling), but they haven’t got a chance to become a family or even know each other.  I assume being long dead can change your perspective and how you view such things as well.


Don't forget to update Tv Tropes  if you see any new trope!

On one hand, I'm glad the bad stuff is over and we're close to the ending. On the other, I'm gonna be sad when it's over.

Wonderful job, dSana!  I love the looks you gave everyone in their crystal form.

And good answer on Spike's reaction.  When it comes down to it, Spike never knew his biological mother.  He's been with Twilight since the moment he hatched.  His first memories were of her and growing up with her.  His sadness for Espera, I think, is more of a quiet sadness.  It's a shame he never got to know her or make any memories, but Spike, at the very least, got to spend these moments with her, which helped reunite him with the one who means the most to him.

Espera helped guide her son back to Twilight.  I'm sure that won't be forgotten.
