The above illustration is a key scene that happens during my fanfic 'The Price of Friendship', in which King Solace - after using all his power to help an old friend - is about to pass away (with his body turning into stardust). The Marchioness refuses to leave his side during his final moments, which will mark the end of the Last of the Alicorn Kings to rule Equestria.

The below quote sums up the emotions in the two of them quite nicely:

"It always is harder to be left behind than to be the one to go...”
― Brock Thoene, Shiloh Autumn

EDIT: And if anyone has noticed, I've been racking my brain for an appropriate title to this piece. Think I finally got one now!

You know Twilight died with them in that picture, so not everyone thinks she's immortal like you do.

Different interpretations is all.

I see this picture as her spirit dying not her body.

So her body is a statue? I doubt she's a pillar pony.

There are no words to describe how awesome this is...

May I ask why there would never be another or would I have to read to find out?
