    I was able to get a pre-read out of this.I don't normally read sad fics, but this one was sad and cute all at the same time.We never want to think about things that far into the future, but alas. We welcome those who come in our wake.

    ugh. some of these are just ridiculous.

  3. jenovaii says:

    The second chapter isn't working…Regardless, i'm not sure why you put this as sad. It sorta reminds me of the end of Watership Down, which was more of a real hero's death instead of just…blah. I felt more inspired than sad.I dunno, maybe it gets sad later? Maybe i'm just weird. Anyway, i like the way you intertwined the families and everything. It's good!

  4. jenovaii says:

    oh, i guess i meant the overflow isn't working. duh.

    second link is wrong this is not as sad but pretty interesting the way they pass on the elements of harmony to their childs

    I could only read the first part, because the second didn't load, but…Oh, my heart. I'm close to tears…

    That second link is just a back up in case we get too many readers on Google Docs. I think it's just the one part.

  10. Marrock says:

    No… I wasn't prepared for it at all…

  11. ZKPony says:

    I don't think it should be classified as sad. i kept waiting for the sad part, and then I got to the end and thought "Here it is!" But then it ended. I went through again, and it reads fine for a normal story. It just lacks any real conflict, I think. But the way you wove together the familes, and revealed it was great! You might be better as a shipper!

    Wow… That was pretty deep. I'm… Speechless at the moment. I can't find the words to describe how I'm feeling… Amazing…

    Call me ignorant but how is Apple Blossom Twilight's grand-daughter? She said Apple Bloom is her mom, and I sure as hell know Apple Bloom is not Big Mac's daughter.

    Only one issue I see: "Tweed" would technically be Blossom's aunt, not her grandma.

    I'm crying right now. My own grandfather just died last week, he was my last living grandparent. I only found out today he had been a Marine.Since he lived across the country from me, it hasn't become real until just now.Thank you, for helping me start to grieve.

    There is no second part – poor overworked blogpony put up some weird blogger link.you can find the "published" version here:https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1jN7YgmrWmxlXAuQUBP7fduCEL8IrB6wpGN1pRV3Ho5cit's the same one, just without the cap and without the chatbox.

    @Anonymouswell she's grandmother by right of being the oldest living "apple" which makes her grandma apple (I've titlized the position) – but you're right, technically.alternatively it's magic, and I ain't gotta 'splain nuffin' 😀

    Yeah, we've seen plenty of these stories. But it was written decently enough. [small SPOILER] Only think I didn't care for, I was waiting for Apple Bloom to make an appearance. Sadly, didn't happen.

    I wonder what's the problem with the people comments saying this isn't sad or that it's not good ?It's touching, and it's sad… Ending of part one, with Twilight Sparkle finally joining the afterlife, joining the friends that had left so long ago… Finally able to rest, her heart at ease.

    Honestley,Tweed is a much more 'silly' name than Twilight Sparkle.

    part 1: manly tears….

    Will Part 2 be repaired soon ?

  28. Midnight says:

    @Nova25there's no part 2!and honestly, with all of the "meh" comments, and my usual dislike for reading (yet alone writing) sadfics I didn't think there would be one.On the other hand, I've given tasters of what happened to the rest of the mane six…

  29. Nova25 says:

    @Midnight>Nightfall at Sweet Apple Acres-Secondary<What's that then ?…and the ''meh comments'' are just from some meanie-pants, with little understanding of the true dynamic of sadness in stories…But anyways… Do whatever you want.

    And many a manly tear were shed. Very touching. Bravo.

  31. TenchiFreak5 says:

    This one was written much better than the first one, and I will admit that I shed manly tears throughout.

  32. kwj says:

    so you're gonna wrute about everypony form the mane cast death in that case many many tears will be shed

  33. Midnight says:

    thanks kwj and tenchifreak5 (and ALL commenters! all authors love feedback!).This was written on a plane, so maybe mild sleep deprevation helps, eh?I wasn't planning to but it does kind of look like I'll be writing the rest of the mane cast. we'll see.

    I'm not sure I can bring myself to read either of these. The description for the second one alone makes me want to cry.

  48. Sharkman says:

    Eh, it was nice but the language was too…formal-ish. They sound like they're telling ancient tales to chill the bones or should be speaking in iambic pentameter, not the more natural way of speaking the actual characters use.

  49. MAGZODIUS says:

    1st one just built up the emotion. 2nd one put me on the borderline of crying. I expect to see some more emotionally powerful stories from you in the future Midnight. I Rainbow Dash salute you as being an example of great fanfic writing.

    Wow. I’ve read fics like these before, but these have undoubtedly had the biggest impact on me. They’re wonderful and I’m going to be thinking about them all day now. I loved how you showed Dash and Twilight passing on their legacy to the younger generation and how aware they were of their past actions, (like Dash regretting her treatment of Scootaloo). Whether you write more or not – these are perfect as they are. Thank you.I also thought the language worked well, in that it reflected how much older they’d become.

    The first part was pretty good and my eyes got a bit moist at the end but Rainbow's story even made me shed a few tears. The beginning of her will was incredibly in character and I couldn't help but chuckle and cry at the same time. Well done.

  60. JaxsonJaguar says:

    Part two was more sad than part one. I read it and just wanted to craw into a corner and have a good cry for a bit.To the author:Your writing style reminds me of a fan fiction writer I had the pleasure of corresponding with back in the late 90's when I was in my Sonic The Hedgehog fandom. He called himself Dan Drazen and he wrote the most epic yet sad Sonic fan fictions around. He had a nack for killing of characters specifically Sally but he was very respectful. By the time you got to the end of his stories you were emotionally drained but in a way you welcomed it.That is how I feel when I read these two fan fictions and I look forward to the inevitable remaining chapters.again thank you.

  61. Doc Steedly says:

    I havent read the 2nd story yet . . . im im afraid to. Just thinking about rainbow not being able to fly brings a knot to my throat . . . . .

  62. NinesTempest says:

    These are sad, but they've had good lives; just dying shouldn't be a sad thing. There is no tragedy, there is no mistake. They've lived how they wanted, and had the best lives they could have.I don't see this as sad. As the first story ended; tears may be shed, but the warmest of smiles each of them probably had.Though, from a strictly mechanical perspective, I think there was just a little bit too much tell, and not enough show. I would have prefered to see more reactions or emotional impacts, but it felt almost stiff (at least in the first story, the second one was great).I'm guessing you'll go through everyone in order now, after showing Twilight. I suppose I'll have to read them. But I can't bring myself to see them as "sad," due to a simple lack of tragedy.

  63. Baree says:

    I think The Last Sonic Rainboom is as good as a sad story can get. What else is there to say?

  64. Doc Steedly says:

    After reading this . . . i dont think i could read another one like this. It was absolutely beautiful. It tore me up to read it . . . having to stop numerous times i knew what was happening . . . even when Twilight didnt catch it. I knew what was going on when she asked to have the package delivered. I really wish i didnt read this . . . but as NinesTempest said. This was absolutely beautiful, it was a saddening story but yet a happy one. I love how it ended and while my chest hurts and i still regret reading this story. Im glad i did and i envision thats EXACTLY how Rainbow would have wanted it. While i basically cried, it was joyful . . . . My heart screams for joy for her. Thank you Luna . . . . .And Thank You Midnight Shadow for this "Glimps of Beauty" My head will be held high and i stand rigid to salute our Hero, The Amazing Rainbow Dash, Equestrias Best Flyer. The only pegasus to achive A Sonic Rainboom three times in her life, and proving that with a strong will, Undetermained mind, Anything is possible. *Silent Salute*

    There may not be tears falling from my eyes, but it is harder to see. It's a very rare occurrence for that to happen to me. These stories do manage to accomplish it though. Keep flying Rainbow

  66. Doc Steedly says:

    After listening to the song Rainbow Rhapsody . . . and ( omg why did i do it. ) re-read her final rainboom section. . . . I cannot believe how well that song meshes with the feel of her final flight . . . . Im deathly afraid of heights . . . . IRL . . . . . but after finding the knowledge of how rainbow describes flight . . . . i wish i just could experience it the way she does once im my lifetime.

    Fuck. I'm crying. Or close to it.A few of the songs I was listening to lined up with what I was reading almost perfectly. Specifically "Room of Angel" on Dash's flight.Oi, I'm hurting. Amazing stories, great work Midnight Shadow.

  69. Nova25 says:

    @MidnightSee… there's a part 2 😉 (though it's a prequel, and not a continuation of Part 1)But seriously… This is great sadness. The good kind. One that is right.I don't think I ever read a story that was able to share and convey this specific feeling -so well and so clearly-.There's some sort of -happiness and understanding- in the sadness of those stories. Especially the Second one.They make you sad, but at the same time you think : ''It's ok. That was right.''

    OH dear Celestia . . . . Im going to hate myself . . . I dont know why i read these . . . i havent made it thru a single one in a single reading . . . . Dashies being the hardest . . even now the lump grows 😥 *shakes head vigorously, and breaths deeply* I didnt read chapter 3 yet, but im going to tonight when i get home from work. They are beautiful . . . . . each one so far. But the thought of the content has me cringing like a little foal in the corner during his first thunderstorm. I never ever wanted to think about "this" of or for any of my favorite mares. I read The first two stories both in one day. I was soo messed up from them. I litterally hid from otherpony fer a good 4-5 hours. . . . . . . It makes me want to embrace them all . . . . never letting go. Cause you never know when, and if you let go, whether it will be the last time. . . . . .

  86. TenchiFreak5 says:

    This one came close to watering my eyes up, but didn't have nearly the effect on me that Chapter 2 did. Still a touching little story.Where did the name "Bright Eyes" come from? I've seen it used in a couple of fics now (though I admit that they may all have been written by the author of this one), and I'm curious.

  87. Trollestia says:

    These were excellent clopfics.

  88. Oh god. So much sadness. So much reflection on mortality.So good. Thank you for this.

  89. MasterDufel says:

    I both hate and love reading these types of sad fics. I also like how you used Luna as the gentle angel of death.

  90. My eyes grew misty just reading the intro and even considering the fate I suspected that might befall our ponies. I only read Part 2 and shed pony tears through the last half of it. I knew I shouldn't have read it, but I had to when I saw that Rainbow Dash was involved. *SPOILER ALERT*I always wonder why fans do this to the characters they love. Most of us are attracted to FiM by the joyous interactions and fresh discoveries of the young pony friends and as you learn more about them and their world your emotions get invested in the story. Yes, you want a little danger and conflict in their lives, but my fantasy interest generally does not include them growing old and dying. The whole joy of the series is the fresh and new and I use fantasy as an escape from reality. I don't enjoy wallowing in deep reality in my fantasies.The foreshadowing was not very subtle. We pretty well knew what was going to happen within the first few paragraphs. It was fairly well written, though I was confused about lineage and names and marriages regarding Twilight's husband and Applejack and the foals and fillies playing at Twilight's hooves all of which seemed kind of pointless anyway as far a short story like this was concerned. It was also thrown right in the middle of when we were learning about Rainbow Dash's request.I don't plan on reading Parts 1 and 3, but who knows after a few days of recovery I might want to find out what happens. :)Anyway, it made me think and cry, which I guess is good. Thanks for writing it, Midnight Shadow.

    Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash's part made me cry…

    @ Virga RainboomThe lineage stuff was explained more thoroughly in the first chapter.

  93. Minalkra says:

    ow. beautifully done.however, fifth paragraph into Fluttershy's account, the last sentence seems to have been accidentally cut off. "With plenty of sunshine and the wonders of nature surrounding her, she le."

    Well, apparently I'm attracted to the aura of suck that is emitted from this stories. Go figure.

  95. NinesTempest says:

    @TenchiFreak5Just her bright yellow eyes, and it was probably an attempt at a realistic pony name for derpy.

  96. NinesTempest says:

    And then Fluttershy's was actually sad because she didn't want to pass.Gorramit.

    Wait… Rarity…? What?

  99. NinesTempest says:

    Yeah, apparently these aren't strictly in order, especially considering the first chapter.

  100. archteryx says:

    The second chapter, in particularly, was very well written, and certainly did touch the heart. It certainly, too, is realistic for Rainbow Dash to want to go out on her own terms.Still, a couple incongruities struck me, besides that people were suspicious and still ended up doing nothing. The other is that they'd not come up with some way to halt the disease, or at least remove the pain enough so Dash could function.Then again, that'd be a different story, and an interesting idea. Even a grounded Dash would be a hell of a teacher.

  104. I don't know why, but I always feel strangely attracted to sad fics.I feel like this one had a nice, emotional tone to it. Reminiscing, feelings, desires, all under the veil of a distant reunion with their ponyselves and their friends.

  105. Baree says:

    Another very well written chapter. You know, since we already sort of know what will happen to the other ponies with the exception of Applejack, I wonder if there is going to be some sort of prologue at the end of it all. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    (I haven't read the 3rd part yet)i think the most interesting part of these are the endings. i would call it a "sad" fic so much a as i would call it a touching one. [obvious spoiler] i think people today are just to quick to associate death with sorrow. (If you ask me Irish funerals are the way to go). Twilight brought happiness with her passing and rainbow got to feel young again. ***on an off note: at the end of the second one (i read these back to back) all that was going through my head was a line from Billy Jole's song "piano man": "he says, 'son, can you play me a memory, I'm not really sure how it goes,but it's sad and it's sweet and i knew it complete,when i wore a younger man's cloths.'"(i think I'm just dumb though…)

    Chapter 3 – Fluttershy – Another masterpiece of the *True* Art of sadness from Death, respectfull, in all its Grand dignity.But, i must say that I am confused by one detail.The 'day' that Luna accepted to give Fluttershy… what happened to it ?When Feather Blossom came, she was breathing, but we learn nothing else before it jumps straight to Big Mac…Did Feather Blossom went and gathered everypony, so Fluttershy could give a proper 'farwell', like she asked Luna ?I would have liked, if that part had been added…

  121. ZAquanimus says:

    @Nova25It's rather simple, Fluttershy went and opened the door for Luna, who i now assume is there in body and spirit.She had a heart attack after opening the door.She asked Luna for one more day in Equestria to say goodbye to all her friends, even if they didn't hear her, reunited with the spirit of Angel Bunny, she danced away, free of pain to spend the day.and.. *sniff* L-Luna, decided to grant her that day, a day for each life she had touched,*sniffsniff* her spirit would remain on Equestria as long as somepony remembered her. *bawls his eyes out*

    Every time I cry… and every time I come back and read more.Very realistic and very touching. I feel like this is what actually would happen.I… GORAHHGDH *CRIES*This isn't fair… I'm going to have to keep reading these too.Commendable. I'm filled with sorrow and happiness and some sort of other mixed emotion melting pot. I can't say I enjoyed this, but I can't say I didn't. Even if they're sad they're some of the best stories.

  123. DVRX says:

    Beautiful, majestic, and the best of anything that I have read in years. I feel no shame in literally weeping after reading these wonderful stories of both the sadness and beauty in death. It is not often that I tear up while smiling (it is not often that I tear up, for that matter) but your fantastic writings have.My hat off to you good sir, and I hope you make many more.

  124. This series of fics is truly deserving of it's sad tag, in the best way possible.It take a lot to get me all teary eyed like these did, but you really managed to pull our heartstrings with them.

    I cried. I'll admit that. I bawled my eyes out.After the third chapter though, I think I was crying more for Luna. Although perhaps fitting, it seems unfair for her, after the grief she's gone through, to also have to be Death.

    Oh Dang I'm crying!Also, I read It out of order…I read The Last Sonic Rainboom First. (Part 1)Then On Fragile Wings. (Part 2)Then Sweet Apple Acres-Chat Room. (Part 3)And to be honest it made more sense that way.I feel Part 2 = 1 Part 3 = 2 And Part 1 = 3But thats just my opinion

    The Last Sonic Rainboom. You got me choked up. I'm normally not one to cry at fics. Bravo, with many a tear, bravo.

    Story #1 crushed my soul, I literally don't want to read more because I'll only cry too hard. 😦

    It's all good work, but I think out of the four parts so far, I liked Rarity's the best.

    That first one actually made me cry. Dear god I feel manly right now. First fic to ever make me do that. Just so… sad. But endearing. man, dribbling on my keyboard.

    I must say that Part 4 was quite touching.All grown mare, understanding and fully accepting the poignant revelation… All 4 daughter had the same elegant wisdom of Rarity.It may not has been as 'sad' as the previous 3 stories, but this was fine; as it had a different, and more subtle, feeling to it.Giving the last thing she could, one last push, to a daughter of which she would have wished to give more time in her life….Maybe one small thing was missing;In the other stories, we had a scene where their spirit would be seen interacting (Luna, Celestia…) before departing, which was missing here.
