  1. >”Stay with me, Anon! Everything will be okay!”
  2. "No, it's... it's okay, Twilight."
  3. >You reach around blindly, unable to turn your head for some reason.
  4. >"Just stay awake," she sobs, pressing her hooves into you. "Stay with me!"
  5. >Trying to staunch the bleeding, probably.
  6. "Did we..."
  7. >It's hard to talk.
  8. >Probably the rib that's piercing your left lung.
  9. >"Don't say anything! Just stay still!"
  10. >She looks around frantically, her head swivelling this way and that as she searches for something.
  11. >"Fluttershy will be here soon, and she...she ..."
  12. "That's not important."
  13. >"There's nothing more important than you!" she cries, shutting her eyes. "Not to me!"
  14. >She can't bear to see you like this.
  15. >You almost feel guilty.
  16. >You should have fought better.
  17. "Did we... did we get them all?"
  18. >You’re dying. All that is left is for you to do what you can with the time that remains.
  19. >Slowly, she nods.
  20. >Her lower lip is gripped between her teeth.
  21. >She’s trying not to cry.
  22. “The enemy are all…”
  23. >You cough, speckling your princess’s face with your own blood.
  24. >”Yes, Anon,” she mumbles, “they’re dead. They’re all dead and your fight is over. Just rest now. Fluttershy –“
  25. “Twilight…”
  26. >”Yes?”
  27. >There.
  28. >Your hand finds what it was hunting for.
  29. >”Yes, Anon?”
  30. “The fight… is never over.”
  31. >Her eyes flare open, hunting for the threat.
  32. >With effort almost beyond you, your fingers curl around the wooden handle.
  33. >She gasps as you try to raise your arm.
  34. >”No, don’t! You’re hurt.”
  35. >You know this.
  36. >”You aren’t in any condition to fight!”
  37. “That’s why… why I have to…”
  38. >”I’ll take care of it! Whatever it is, I’ll take care of it!”
  39. >Her breathing is rapid and shallow – she’s on the verge of panic.
  40. >Trying to stop your bleeding, trying to find the enemy – her fear for you, her fear for everything, it’s all too much for her.
  41. >You struggle to stand, but your body refuses.
  42. >It’s not a matter of being too weak; the necessary tendons and ligaments simply aren’t attached anymore.
  43. >”Don’t move!” Twilight cries, pushing you back down. “You’re making the bleeding worse!”
  44. “It’s okay, Twi…”
  45. >You’re out of breath before you can say her full name.
  46. >Huh.
  47. >It’s a cute nickname – Twi – you wish you had thought of it before now.
  48. >Before it was too late to matter anymore.
  49. >Shame.
  50. >Twi looks down at you with such compassion and tenderness, all other concerns forgotten.
  51. >At this moment, you and your injuries are the sum of her world.
  52. >You try to sit up, eliciting a fresh wave of crimson from your wounds and snapping Twilight out of her trance.
  53. >”FLUTTERSHY!” she screams. “FLUTTERSHY, HURRY UP!”
  54. >She’s given in to her panic.
  55. >”HE’S BLEEDING! OH, SUN, HE’S BLEEDING OUT! FLUTTERSHY!”
  56. “Twi…”
  57. >Her head snaps back to face you.
  58. “…it’s okay…”
  59. >She’s crying.
  60. >She’s crying for you.
  61. >Why?
  62. >”N-no, it’s – it’s not…”
  63. “Yes, it is.”
  64. >Somehow, you raise your hand to stroke her cheek, smearing the blood spattered across her purple coat.
  65. >It almost looks like the blush of a lovestruck schoolfilly.
  66. >”B-but –“
  67. >Your grip on the handle is strong.
  68. “Twi, it’s okay. There’s… there are only two left.”
  69. >You run your fingers through the vibrant strands of her mane.
  70. >”You’re bleeding.”
  71. “I know.”
  72. >You feel stronger now, strong enough to raise your other arm.
  73. >The final burst of energy before life leaves you altogether.
  74. >You’ve seen it many times, on many battlefields, in many warriors, from the wastes to the walls of Praag and Erengrad and beyond.
  75. >And now… here. In you.
  76. >How odd.
  77. >You always thought you would live forever. You thought you were special.
  78. >”You’re bleeding,” she repeats dully, too traumatized to find other words, other things to say.
  79. “It’s okay.”
  80. >Her eyelids flutter, trying to blink away the tears.
  81. >”It’s not.”
  82. “It’s okay.
  83. >Twi closes her eyes, but the tears come anyway.
  84. “It’s okay.”
  85. >”S-stop saying that.”
  86. “But it is.”
  87. >”Why!?”
  88. “Because Khorne cares not from whence the blood flows –“
  89. >Twi gasps in pain as the fingers running through her mane become a fist, gripping her and holding her in place.
  90. “-ONLY THAT IT FLOWS!”
  91. >She screams as your axe cuts into her neck, for as long as she is able.
  92. >It turns into a wet gurgle as she chokes on her own blood.
  93. >The mare tries to rear back, tries to run, but your grip on her mane holds her in place with the insane strength of a dying man.
  94. >In panic, in mortal terror, without even being aware of what she is doing, hooves hammer your chest, breaking bones and rupturing organs.
  95. >It doesn’t matter.
  96. >You’re dead anyway.
  97. >It’s only a matter of how much blood you can spill before the last of yours is drained.
  98. >You pull your axe free in a fountain of red.
  99. >The look of betrayal and confusion that flashes across her face hurts.
  100. >She should have known this would happen.
  101. >You had told her.
  102. >Chaos will have blood.
  103. >Yours… or theirs.
  104. >The axe smashes into her neck again, sanguine spatter turning the crystal floors red as her blood mingles with yours.
  105. >Twilight’s eyes roll back in their sockets, bringing a hint of a smile to your face.
  106. >So very like her, to roll her eyes at you even in her final moments.
  107. >With a shudder, she falls, collapsing heavily on legs that cannot feel anything.
  108. >She’s dead.
  109. >Not dying.
  110. >Dead.
  111. >You didn’t want her to suffer.
  112. >There is no glory in sadism, only in blood.
  113. >Your death takes longer; you lay there, trapped under the body of your friend, your strength all but spent.
  114. >Hoofsteps resound sharply, a quick four-beat cadence singing throughout the crystal castle.
  115. >”Twilight!?”
  116. >It’s Fluttershy.
  117. >”Anon!?”
  118. >The hoofsteps stop.
  119. >You can’t turn your head to face her.
  120. >”TWILIGHT!? OH MY GOSH, ARE YOU… Twilight, are you… oh, Celestia…”
  121. >Hesitantly, the mare approaches, slowly coming into your field of view.
  122. >You… you might have it in you for one more swing.
  123. >”Anon… what…?”
  124. >You will never reach her.
  125. >That’s okay.
  126. >Chaos will have blood.
  127. >If not theirs…
  128. >”Anon, why are you smiling!?”
  129. >Slowly, too slowly, yet as quickly as you can, you raise your axe to your throat.
  130. “Blood…”
  131. >If not theirs…
  132. “… for the Blood God.”
  133. >… then yours.
