Heaven's So Far Away by Nyx-Aeterna Heaven's So Far Away by Nyx-Aeterna
Pulled away before your time,
I can't deal, it's so unfair!
And it feels
And it feels like,
Heaven's so far away.
And it feels,
Yeah it feels like,
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away...


~"Gone Away" by The Offspring



This is a continuation of the fanfic Cupcakes (which should only be read if you can handle gore); Cupcakes was incredibly well-written, each character kept right in character they should be, which just made it THAT much more disturbing.

Now, in this picture, Fluttershy is grieving. In my personal scenario of what happened after (which I'll write up soon) Rainbow Dash's brutal murder, her body was recovered and Pinkie Pie placed in an asylum for serious help. Dash's body was sent into a cloud high in the sky, but the ponies sent Fluttershy a lock of Dash's mane for her to bury in her garden, because they knew how special she was to her. Fluttershy buried the little lock of hair and placed Dash's prized crown on top of the little mound, quietly grieving and saying everything she'd been too shy to say while Dash was alive-- how Fluttershy cared so much for her, and how she missed the great friend who had defended her honor since they were little ponies.

Now, I support FlutterDash as a pairing, but as a very platonic relationship-- nothing beyond some cute kissings. But I also think that Fluttershy would be too shy to say how she really felt about her... which leads her to regret staying silent while standing at her best friend's grave.

Bronies, don't kill me. I'm sorry for making Fluttershy cry. D: It bothers me too.

I really like the idea of the picture and I also like the song you referenced. The Offspring is one of my all-tie favorite bands

Really cute :3

I won't kill you for making fluttershy cry. XD I believe there is a right time and place to see a any character cry. The part is they wish to mess with your emotions, let them be in a good way or negative way. it's still art and it's still great. no matter how much they hate to see it. XD

my deviant side thoughts: i think someone needed to do this but no one had the courage to make fluttershy cry.

my brony thoughts: i am going to find you and after im done with you what happened to dash would be a very invited way to die

Thanks. ^^ I'm actually going to write out a better epilogue than my tl;dr version on here. Along with a picture of Fluttershy in a different light and yeah. xD

Wow you're the first person I've seen that had positive things to say about "Cupcakes". :XD: I couldn't handle it; even just listening to a dramatic reading made me physically ill. I'll admit, though, I thought it was quite interesting the author had Pinkie Pie act like her usual perky self. Made for some reeeeeaaaally creepy interplay between her and Rainbow Dash.

As for the picture itself, I like that it's rather simple; the emotion behind the piece is where its impact comes from. The coloring on Fluttershy came out nicely too, especially on her tail.

Yeah, that's why I liked it and why is DISTURBED me so much. D: It's horrifyingly good. xD

And thank you very much. ^^ I was kinda experimenting with the shading and colors on her, and I wanted to keep the background and such simple, like the series itself.
