All The Colors Died With Her by InsomniacOvrLrd All The Colors Died With Her by InsomniacOvrLrd
I don't usually do just
haphazard painty things. I've actually got a much more typical picture of this same scene, from a completely different angle underway, but realized it was much more about the scene, the emptiness, and the isolation, that it was how she looked when she realized what she was looking at.

And this ISNT spoilers actually. It's pretty understood from the second or third page of the fucking BEHEMOTH of a story that is End of Ponies, that literally everyone died. This is just from a flashback later on, filling in the oh so juicy spaces between that was then and this is now.

So

have a painting of a broken 9 yearold scoots clinging to the half burnt husk that used to be her idol, under the fallen ruins of cloudsdale.


Go read End of Ponies. It's huge. It's amazing. Best thing i've ever read.

Period.

all the chapters can be found below.

You don't really have to read about every single one of your favorite characters dying. Its mostly just like "Eveypony is dead", but do not get me wrong, that fic is sad, and characters you care about do die. But when its happy, its the most amazing thing possible. Its long, arduous at times, but totally worth it. If you read any other of shortskirtsandexplosion's stuff, you will probably know what to expect.

Hmm, it does seem interesting, I might check it out. So, it can be happy, but in the end everyone dies anyways? Is the fic done already?

Nope. Its actually on hiatus right now, but its going to be started up again soon (Within the next month, for sure).
It begins with almost everyone dying. Its much easier for you to read it than it is for me to explain why it can be more sad after that without massive spoilers.

Yeah I went and read it, all of it...its really well written, but that didn't surprise me. I like it and all, but I prefer my ponies living. Still pretty cool though [link]

Well, you started a series of happenings that lead me to register on FimFiction.

Good job on this composition! (Commenting on half year old pictures, no problem.)

Oh, i don't know. He's been writing another story while he mulls over what to do with End of Ponies. He hit a big snag with the Petra Arc, which was completed, but ripped apart by his editors. So he murdered the whole fucking thing. Then he started a rewrite, which apparently also had its share of problems. He put it 'on the back burner' as it were, and started a little fic to entertain himself.

It's called Background Pony, and much UNLIKE the epic that is EoP, BP actually got popular. So he's been focusing on that, which is depressing. Background Pony is by no means a BAD story, but it's certainly not the whirlwind epic that is End of Ponies :\ And as a friend of the guy, and fan of his writing, all i can really say is that i suppose it's nice to have more of his stuff to read, even if I've been left hanging for months when it comes to my favorite time traveling world-fixer.

Wooohey, glad I stumbled in here! I've read some powerful pieces, but none that had the capacity to physically distress or elate me as EoP did. It's always a treat to see artwork inspired by EoP, especially one that captures the emotion of a scene.

I love how you've defined the newly created wasteland so well, with just that lonely splash of colour in the middle of it all. The settling dust and feathers are a nice touch. I may just set this as my desktop whilst I attempt to scratch some more of what EoP made me feel onto paper... maybe even with a quality approaching your concept sketches ;)

It's a wonderful story. Currently the author is tangled up in another story, Background Pony, which is GOOD, but as i'm sure you could guess,

well it's just not EoP. But he'll get back to it sooner or later, and it's not like there isn't an everest to climb worth of story already there i could check out again while i wait.

And if you DO do something EoP related, show me! and i'll show Skirts

Yes, he's deliberately exploiting my love for Lyra. [link]

It was reading EoP that inspired me to draw - something I hadn't done for many, many years. I've long way to go before I can call myself an artist, but I'm trying to work my way up. There's a few ideas I need to express, its about the least I could do for how EoP made me feel.

Thanks for the offer! I'd love to share my Harmony doodles with a fellow enthusiast :) Just don't forget I'm a few years worth of artistic experience behind you ;)

Amazing scene you captured here. Showed it to my friend who I got into EOP, and you made his heart hurt again lol...

My love for the story forces me to take notice however, that Scoots still has her mane. Artistically I like it better this way, but in line with the story, hasn't she already sheared it off by this point?

An oversight, on my part. I did this after i'd read through the whole petra arc (which is being completely rewritten. or was, until Skirts struck attention gold with background pony, which seems to be his focus now :\) and it sounds like i don't need to inform you how LONG petra was.

So i'd forgotten if she'd cut it off or not when i did that. Anyway, thank you!
