FANFIC: For Those We Left Behind - [link] (short sadfic)

--

Yepyep. Twilight Sparkle with her father.. And mother.

In short, all I can say is that you should read the fic even if you don't like sadfics. This one is really an exception. The story itself is so powerful and great deciphering of the relationship between Twilight and her parents. It certainly isn't your usual "Alright, let's make you cry" fic.


From the start I already kinda knew what I wanted, but struggled to make it happen. I didn't want to give enviroment any color so the value separation and defining the distance was pretty sloppy and all over the place from time to time. I'm still not quite happy about the perspective and sense of distance but can't help it.

This was done about week before the Canterlot Wedding episode, the fic itself was done even earlier.

Even if she stays mortal she'll have to bury her parents eventually.  And whos to say that she wont live a few years longer than her friends, just being a alicorn, not centuries.

Now that Twilight's immortal (or at least lives for centuries) she'll have to live through much more loss. Something so grand and happy in a little girl's cartoon still has a dark side. Her mom, dad, brother, the other Mane 6, everyone she knows in Ponyville and abroad. Her only permanent companions'll be Celestia, Luna and Cadenza (aka Cadence).

This artwork is just remarkable.

It sure did. I have to confess, I am in a similar situation that Twilight was. Being away from my family I had to move to TX for the military. I haven't seen them for a year and a half almost. :cries: thank you for reminding me of how valuable time is Huussii

That jar contains ashes?
It reminds me of the jar full of a samurai's ashes from Sift Heads World 2. Vinnie stole it, and then lures the Yakuzas to their base.

Wow, this is a glorious picture.

Just, the whole scene, looking out over the mist-filled valley, the hilltops poking above the clouds, the wind blowing through the scene, dusting up leaves as it goes, and Twilight and her father's expressions...

This is beautiful. Just beautiful. I haven't even read the fic, but I can tell this is a fitting piece of art for such a concept. It strikes a bit close to home, as well, having buried my grandmother in the mountains a few years ago. :(

Words fail me, so I go now.
