Twilight here, I guess I should explain what happened to us, seeing as most of you must be confused. It’s a long story, let me start from the beginning…
It all started at Pinkie Pie's party for Dash's old friend Gilda. We were all having a good time, except Gilda of course. Who is Gilda? Oh, Sorry, she's Rainbow Dash's old friend from flight camp. She’s a griffon. A bloody bitch of a griffon… What she did To Pinkie, AND TO DASH!!!
Ahem… Sorry… I tend to lose track of what I’m talking about as of late.
Back to what happened…
Everypony was having a good time, and laughing. It all seems so long ago… Anyway, Gilda was falling for all of Rainbow's pranks, she got fed up with it, and blamed PINKIE… The nicest filly in the world…or at least, she was the nicest filly in the world… Gilda, she…She snapped!! I don’t know what came over her!! She just suddenly lost it on Pinkie. First it just started off as shouting, but then escalated into…something unimaginable… Gilda had hit Pinkie, knocking her over, we all gasped but couldn’t get to Pinkie in time…
Gilda was on her so fast… Clawing at her, Ripping at her flesh… I can still hear her cries for help. Everypony did their very best to try and get the crazed griffon off of our lovable friend… But it was to late. Pinkie…S-she…was gone. Now it was Rainbow's turn to lose it… She started screaming at Gilda and threatening to kill her in the most brutal ways she could think of. Gilda took off, Rainbow was soon to follow. Everypony was in shock. Nopony knew what to do. Nothing like this has ever happened in PonyVille…
We all suddenly heard a familiar KA-BOOM and looked out the window, we saw a huge rainbow cross the sky. Rainbow had been going so fast she made another Sonic Rainboom. Thinking she had caught up to Gilda, me and the girls quickly ran towards where the Rainboom had come from. Ms. and Mr. Cake took care of our poor friend Pinkie for us while we ran after the crazed pony.
What we had all secretly hoped to see was a griffon named Gilda with her face smashed in… But, instead… We saw a pony named Rainbow Dash with her face smashed in! We all gasped…She didn’t incline quickly enough… She hit the ground at a record speed, We lost two good friends that day… Thanks to that…monster.
We had a huge funeral for the mares. Even the princess shed tears for our lost friends. The remaining four of us became so distant after the death of our friends.
Applejack had locked herself up and refused to come out of hiding, Fluttershy just stayed home and tended to her animals, Rarity continued making dresses pretending like it never happened, and I caught up on my grief studies, hoping that maybe one day I would never have to feel this pain again.
About a year after the death of our friends there was a terrible lightning storm, right over top of Sweet Apple Acres. I saw a few of the trees get zapped all the way from my own home.
After the storm I decided I would pay Applejack a visit, she looked awful to say the least. I knew she was closer to Dash then me or the others, her and Dash had been best friends since she could remember. Her mane was a mess, her hoofs dirtier then usual, and she wore this face of pure sorrow and angst.
She kindly explained to me that her and Big Mac had a bunch of work to do. The storm had made the farm into a mess. Apples and leaves were everywhere, I could also see a few burnt trees that had been struck by the lighting.
I offered to help them, she really seemed like she needed a friend. They agreed to let me help out, my job was to use my magic to gather all the undamaged apples.
I was doing as I was requested to do until I heard Applejack scream. I quickly ran over, the closer I got the more screams I could hear. I could hear Big Mac shouting for help, and Applejack screaming in what sounded like pure gargled agony. I gasped at what I saw. A giant apple tree had fallen down onto my blonde haired friend. Big Mac was trying his hardest to get the tree off of his little sister. I quickly used my magic to lift the tree up and threw it to the side. Her jaw had been broken and torn off of her face.
I tried my best to keep my lunch down. She had several puncture marks along her body. Me and Big Mac brought her to the hospital as soon as we could, Applebloom had tried to follow us, but luckily Granny Smith was there to stop the little filly from seeing such a horror.
The doctors re-attached her jaw and operated several times within the 12 hours she had been there. They put her on life support. She was on life support for about a week, the doctors didn’t see any improvement in her health. The only thing Applejack would say was “Kill me…Kill me….Kill me…”. It was bone chilling, Finally the Apple family made the choice to pull the plug. Me, Rarity, Fluttershy and the Apple family said our final good-byes. We had to literally pull Applebloom off of AJ. We all cried as the final good-byes were said and the plug was pulled. We all watched the lifeline go dead.
Applejack was gone…
The three of us who were left were depressed to say the least. Especially Rarity. She couldn’t stand all of the grief, and to add even more pressure onto her already tired self she had a huge order come in from Canterlot. I don’t know who, somepony who is well known in the fashion world. She was frantically trying to deal with the recent loss of yet another friend, and fill in this order. I’d check on her every few days just to make sure she was okay, you know? Yeah, I was hurting too, but I knew I had to be there for my other friends, because no matter what we were still best friends.
Anyway, she was overworking herself and had fallen into a state of psychosis. She would scream and scream for hours at nothing...
I was just at my house reading some old ponytale that I used to read when I was still a young filly, when suddenly there was a knock at my door. I answered and was welcomed by the local pony police. They asked if they could come inside. Confused, I allowed them in and excused myself for the mess. They then began to tell me that Rarity had passed away in a traumatic accident. They wouldn’t tell me how she had died. They just said that Rarity's younger sister Sweetie Bell said that I should be notified. Tears ran down my cheeks. It had only been 4 months since Applejack's death. Why was this happening to us? I kept thinking to myself over and over again. I just couldn’t understand the events that had taken place.
At the funeral, Sweetie Bell, through tears explained what had taken place that night:
She had been downstairs doing her homework when she had heard Rarity screaming once again. Screaming vulgarities and yelling for help, which as of late wasn’t out of character for her. Eventually Rarity had just stopped screaming, which troubled the younger filly. She ran upstairs to check on her sister…
Her sobs were too incoherent for me to understand what had happened. She blamed herself completely, I had reassured her that it wasn’t her fault at all, and that she did everything she could....
About 2 weeks later I heard another soft knock on my door. I was terrified that something had happened to Fluttershy…I didn’t think I could handle losing my last best friend. Choking back my anxiety I slowly answered the door.
There I saw Sweetie Bell, since her sisters death she had been living with the Cakes. She told me she wanted to finish telling me what happened. I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t completely interested in what she had to say, so I eagerly brought her inside and made her as comfortable as I could.
She continued where she had left off...
After she made it to the top of the stairs she saw Rarity sprawled out on the floor covered in her blood. There was a huge streak of blood showing that she had tried to get to the door but bled out before she could make it.
What she saw next put Sweetie Bell in shock..
She didn’t want to look up, but she did anyway. Half of her sisters mane and flesh was torn off by her sewing machine...
That’s when she stopped. I was horrified at what this poor filly had to go through. The only thing I could think of doing was give her a big hug. We sat there and cried for hours on end...
First it was Pinkie and Rainbow, Then AJ, ..And now Rarity!
After Rarity's death Fluttershy completely shut herself off from the world around her. She wouldn’t let anypony not only into her home, but her heart as well. I hadn’t heard anything from her in a little over a few months, so I decided to go and check on her. Her door was locked, as I assumed. I went to walk away until I smelled a horrid odor. It smelled disgusting! The smell came from inside Fluttershy's house.
I used my magic to unlock her door, then I slowly entered the foul odored house and looked around. It was to dark to see anything, so I flipped on the light switch and screamed. Fluttershy was just hanging there, Her hooves cut up and her cutie mark had a clean cut X over the top of it. I looked around the house and saw what I could only assume was Angel… His head was smashed in like a pumpkin. It's Eyes wide but i noticed a piece of paper on the floor in front of Fluttershys lifeless corpse.
All it said was: “I didn’t mean it… He didn’t LOVE me…”.
That’s when I finally snapped. I screamed and kicked and then destroyed the small house. I don’t know what came over me! No, I know exactly what came over me. I was finally letting all my pent up emotion out. Pinkie Pie had been violently murdered, Rainbow Dash died trying to avenge a friend, Applejack had a terrible accident, Rarity had gone insane and tried to turn herself into a dress, and now Fluttershy,.. Fluttershy of all ponies….Had committed suicide!
I started laughing like a madmare, I couldn’t help it. I denied that all my friends had died. I denied my loneliness.. Yes, I still had Spike, But…It just wasn’t the same anymore..
I ran home and stayed in my room until night fall….I-I gathered all the girls remains…And brought them into Fluttershy's house. I pulled out a book out of my saddle bag. “The Art Of Resurrection” My friends weren’t dead…They were sleeping… I just needed to wake them up! I told myself.
The book said I needed a sacrifice. Angel would do. I laughed as I set up the ritual. I would bring the girls back, because I mean… They were only asleep. So I did the unthinkable…
I brought my friends back to life. The spell was working perfectly, going exactly as planned, but suddenly my world turned black….
When I awoke I tried to stand, but found that half my body was MISSING! I went to scream but found my mouth had been tightly sewn shut. I looked up and saw my friends looking back at me. They all looked so,..Un-natural! They looked as they did when they had died. What have I done? I asked myself silently.
I have sinned against all laws of the living….
I have brought back the dead….With a horrible price..
But, It’s okay…Because….We are together again…. Hahaha…We will always be together…. Best...Friends...Forever.
