  1. > You can't take it anymore.
  2. > You nail your tie to the ceiling and jump off your chair.
  3. > It's longer than you thought, but you suffocate, no regrets.
  4.  
  5. > You wake up in an attic somewhere, and wonder who thought that was a good place for an insufficiently dead body.
  6. > You get to your hooves and don't freak out because you have bigger fish to fry; ie yourself.
  7. > You check to see if you still have your neck tie for round two.
  8. > The good news is that you do. The bad news is that it is stuck; can't loosen or tighten.
  9. > You try to walk down the stairs, and immediately tumble down what feels like an eternity of stairs, but which is probably only one flight, a tight corner, then another flight.
  10. > You had been hoping that the stairs would finish the job, but you only feel bruised.
  11. > Someone gasps, and you get the feeling there may be a surprise party in your future.
  12. > You get to your hooves and see you are behind the counter in Sugarcube Corner.
  13. > Everyone is standing still, some in mid bite, and one pony is just sitting there, coffee pouring into his mouth, then dribbling down his chin.
  14. > Only Pinkie Pie is moving, and she is having a hard time getting around a clump of ponies at the counter.
  15. > You make eye contact with Mrs. Cake, and her face relaxes. She says,
  16. "You shouldn't have worn that tie."
  17. > That's weird.
  18. "I'm not sure the tie was the problem. It held out for longer than I did."
  19. > Mrs. Cake takes one unnaturally jerky step towards you.
  20. "That tie was a gift."
  21. > You start to suspect that you are not talking to Mrs. Cake.
  22. > Pinkie Pie heaves you over the counter, and you slide into the legs of someone.
  23. > She tosses you onto her back and starts bouncing out of the shop.
  24. > Out of the corner of your eye, you see Mrs. Cake return to her former position.
  25. > The streets of Ponyville are just as unnaturally still, and you have the presence of mind not to look anyone in the eye.
  26. > At the town limits, Pinkie Pie sets you down and shakes her mane.
  27. > Space curls around both of you, and you find yourself in a white, padded room with an airlock.
  28. > You spend the next few days in mildly unpleasant isolation.
  29. > Food and water teleport in, waste products teleport out.
  30. > On the fourth day, a voice tells you to leave.
  31. > The airlock opens, and you exit.
  32. > The halls are bare concrete with white, shining gems set into the walls and ceiling.
  33. > There is only one other airlock, and you go through.
  34. > It is a nearly identical room to the last one, except for a small plexiglass window in the wall.
  35. > The airlock closes behind you.
  36. > You step a little closer to see on the other side of the window, there is a nervous looking pony with a short cropped mane and a tag on his ear that reads,
  37. "D55847"
  38. > He is frozen like the ponies in Ponyville.
  39. > You look away, highly nervous yourself.
  40. > You hear a voice telling you to look at the other pony.
  41. > You shake your head.
  42. > The voice tells you that you can go to the other cell if you do.
  43. > Reluctantly, you look into the eyes of the frozen pony.
  44. > His face relaxes.
  45. "You shouldn't have worn that tie."
  46. > You shakily answer,
  47. "Believe me, I know."
  48. > The pony continues, only slightly muffled by the window.
  49. "That tie was a gift."
  50. > You back away, keeping your eyes on the pony. He continues.
  51. "That tie was for me."
  52. > The pony lifts his hooves up and places them on the window.
  53. "I was supposed to live forever."
  54. > You look away, thoroughly spooked.
  55. > Out of the corner of your eye, you see the pony get back down, and resume his nervous expression.
  56. > You turn to the airlock, and wait.
  57. > The voice asks if you would please look one more time.
  58. > You shake your head.
  59. > Forty five minutes later the airlock opens, and you return to what you now think of as your room.
  60. > You curl up in a corner and try not to dream.
  61.  
  62.  
  63. -The End.
