Now I'm really, really done for the season. Very tricky, Hasbro, to release a Christmas special two months in advance!

My last two Goodnights have been rather lackluster so I was glad to get to tell more of a story here. Even in Rockhoof's episode I haven't seen the Pillars accept the idea that those they cared about are long gone. Rockhoof came close, but sadly characters like Captain Stellar remain limited to the comics. I would enjoy seeing the Pillars track down their friends' descendants and share tales.

Thanks as ever to :iconundead-niklos:, who gifted the fandom with the original Pinkie Pie Says Goodnight. Have a good night and enjoy tomorrow's special!

That, uh... that made me tear-up a little.  Not gonna lie.  Wow, Silver!  You never cease to amaze.

Once season 9 starts, you should feature Chancellor Neighsay in one of these.

I have this image in my mind of him admitting he's trying to revise the rules to match the new times. Problem is, Twilight's rulebook is so long it's taken him the entire hiatus just to read halfway.

One would imagine that Rockhoof and Flash Magnus, being military ponies who primarily socialized with military ponies, have long been mentally prepared for the idea that those they know might be lost suddenly. Meadowbrook and Mistmane both seemed to socialize primarily with animals (or plants), many of which would not have the human-like lifespans that pastel ponies are implied to have. Outside of the Pillars, Starswirl seemed to mostly associate with the princesses, who of course are still alive.

Somnambula seemed to be close to Prince Hisan, but we haven't seen much of her since her return.

Incredible. I love everything about this, even though I'm usually not into headcanons. Absolutely brilliant work. The special was awesome too.

Interesting concept that clover the clever should have married Princess Platinum and have a descendant somewhere in Equestria, my guess is that if the producers/writers were to do this it would probably be one of the Mane 6. But we shall have to wait and see what they come up with, here's hoping for a special and heartfelt 9th season (kind of like the holiday special from yesterday) seeing as it is the last until G5 comes out.

Sounds like a good setup for a sequel.

well dang... he just magicaly danced on his grave and dishonered himself. I am proud that he did that since he wanted to but at the same time why?

Sometimes, life presents an opportunity to take an option that might never occur again.  

And in that moment, just sometimes, you must dance on your own grave, because few people get that magnificent an opportunity to troll life and death itself. :D

It's like owning a very profitable bakery. You can have your cake. You can sell your cake. And if you do it right, you have enough to eat your cake too!

I want to challenge one idea you put forth. How does it dishonor yourself to dance on your own grave?

I think embracing life means likewise embracing death. I would rather dance into the unknown than tremble before it.

Agreed!

Especially Clover the Clever dancing on his own grave. I want to see that animated!
