Memory Lane by I-am-knot Memory Lane by I-am-knot
READ THIS --> As many have pointed out, I know "she wont out live her friends". I know that the writers have said that. But is that really such a big deal when watching fan work? If you do think so, please keep it to yourself, I've already heard every version of disagreement now.

Twilight "only" thanks Pinkie because when the filly is offering to give away her balloons to cheer up the princess. And when saying "Thanks you" to the filly, Twilight is reminded of Pinkie Pie in that specific moment and thus uses her name.

I didn't forget Rainbow Dash. She is represented by the prism in panel three.

We have reached that point again where there are just too many comment for me to answer. I have read everyone and I'm thankful for them. Even if I didn't reply.

I had to give everything full stars, as it actually had a tear run down my eye. This is true to being alicorn, you outlive your normal friends, and the representation to this picture really gives in some thought that Twilight is nearly forever, forever to have memories of her dead friends.
Thank you for making this, it's truly a beautiful piece of art and meaning, it even shows Twilight's adjustment to her crown and armor. Her expression is very Twilight, you can see the emotion in her eyes.
Too bad, we all know this is bound to happen. Amazing artwork.

It took me a second to figure out what was going on in this one, but after I had it sorted out it almost made me shed tears. It's kinda sad that alicorns will outlive the other pony types, but I'd rather not think about it because I dont want Twilight to be alone. Since I'm a huge fan of Twilight myself, I think it's no wonder that this piece of work affects my feeligns in a way.
Anyways, this is a beautiful work of art with a meaning to it.
I really like the art style and the story this one tells.

Well, immortality doesn't necessary mean you live forever... (violent death).

I think until i found my special somepony i would chose mortality... 
since i know that i might lose friends... but i also will meet new ones on the journey.

Death is quiet common in my family... but that's an important part of life.

I think the reason they said she wouldn't is because the show will never deal with the issue. I mean, however popular it gets. It won't last 50+ years. And we wont have to know what happens when a pony gets really old. I don't even think granny smith will ever die in the show.

He's a dragon, so he has a longer lifepan, which means he's alive somewhere, maybe in the castle or in a cave somewhere sleeping.

Her life might be forever now, but so is friendship beyond the limitations of time.
Even if Twilight outlives her friends, quite possibly the biggest lesson is that even in life and death, they're always in your heart. A little cliched, I know, but that doesn't make it untrue, right? The fact that she remembers them, the fact that they had such an affect of her, both proof they they existed.

Friendship, it really is kinda magical~! ^u^ *shot*

Wait... The writers have stated that she won't outlive her friends?

That is both good news... and Mildly confusing. Did the writers mention how that works? cause, Celestia and Luna are Alicorns too, and are practically immortal (depending on who you ask, some say they just have really really really REALLLLLLLY long lives). I mean, I could understand, however, that Twilight, despite being an Alicorn, is not immortal like Celestia and Luna, but, and I know how this might sound, I would still expect her to have a longer life then most ponies.

So, did they mention how exactly that works, and if Cadence is the same way? If not, whatever, I was just curious. I hadn't heard about this until just now.

alicorn does not = imortality.
Celestia and Luna are special cases. They were immortal before getting their hooves on the elements. Just like Cadence agea and will eventually grow old so will Twilight and her friends
