After hearing the acoustic version of 'Friendship' I had to draw this. I don't know why, but this version it's kinda sad.

Also, I wanted to work more with this amazing pencil brushes.

Twilight stared at the remnants of the elements, all that she had left of her friends. What had their life ended so quickly? If only she had gotten there in time, then maybe things would've been different. Tears trickled down her guilt-filled face, "I did this. I learned about friendship, and what do I get in the end? Nothing but memories. This wouldn't have happened if I had returned to Canterlot," the purple unicorn cried. Then, she heard a familiar country accent, "Twilight, don't take the blame out on yourself, what has been done has been done, and that's the honest truth." "Cheer up Twilight! Turn that frown upside-down! You must pinkie promise to smile every day," Pinkie giggled. Rarity added, "Dear, memories are more than enough!" And a little murmur chimed in, "You're a really good friend, and I'm happy to die for you." "C'mon Egghead, don't be down like that! We're with you every step of the way!" The purple pony looked around, searching for her lost friends. It didn't have to be this way, her mind screamed. She let her head hang, the tears streaming down her face. The magic within the elements began to twinkle out, taking the memories with them. Twilight's memory began to fade, easing the pain. But friendship stayed in her broken soul, making her heart ache worse. "I used to wounder what friendship could be," she lulled subconsciously, "until you all shared it's magic with me..." The last word stuck on her tongue, a bitter memory fading away. A smile spread across her face. "I'll never forget," she whispered in the dusk.

While she constantly sees, dreams, and hears hallucinations of her long dead friends and loved ones tormenting her almost 24/7, she's not affected by them. She's aware of them and the fact that she's nuts, but she has a approval rating country to co-maintain efficiently.  After all, being psychotic is inefficient.

I haven't heard it yet, but even the original was really sad when I was in the right mood. Not sure now if I want to risk the acoustic version. :hmm:

But the picture fits perfectly to the song, nice work. :)

Well If her friends don't become alicorns, this is bound to happen sooner or later, and the same thing could happen with Cadence and Shining Armor

The song is about friendship being broken- not friends dying. It's a much more tragic subject IMHO.

Sure, something died. The piece is entitled "The Death of Magic", after all. But as we all know, Magic=Friendship. It was their friendship that died. Broken Harmony=>broken Elements. Heck, the last lines of the song are the singer (Twilight in this context) pledging to fix their friendship at any cost. Kinda hard to do that if your friends are dead.

Many a heavy heart will be carried the day the fandom falls. In the spirit of the good, let our stand never waiver, and may our bonds remain steeled and unbreaking.
