  1. >arrive in Equestria
  2. >you are met with hostility at first but eventually are able to prove that you aren't a threat
  3. >you are allowed to live on the outskirts of town next to the Everfree Forest
  4. >your construction skills aren't very good, only able to build a tiny shack with a leaky roof
  5. >you are allowed to go into town to buy stuff but everypony avoids you like the plague
  6. >Zecora tasks you with gathering rare herbs in exchange for bits
  7. >she's cold and barely pays you anything but it's all you have
  8. >you eventually go and find your waifu
  9. >she's disgusted by you and asks you to never visit her again
  10. >as you try and cope with this devastation over the months you realize you don't want to do this anymore
  11. >one day when sent to find a particularly poisonous plant you come across a gray pony
  12. >she's sitting in an opening by herself with tears flowing as she baws
  13. >she notices you and is scared at first but you introduce yourself
  14. >obviously she's heard of the weird creature that lives outside of Ponyville
  15. >she makes an attempt to stop crying but still has the sniffles
  16. >you ask her what's wrong and she explains that the love of her life, Big Mac, just married another mare in town
  17. >you tell her you're sorry and go on to explain what happened with your waifu
  18. >you both sit there in silence for a while
  19. >an understanding between the two of you has brought some calmness to you both
  20. >you both decide to meet up again at the same spot tomorrow
  21. >you forgot to find the plant Zecora asked for, but you don't care anymore
  22.  
  23. >you wake up early and make sure to get Zecora's order complete, she was pretty pissed off from yesterday
  24. >today you need to find her a black iris, which is pretty rare. Long day ahead
  25. >but for once, you actually have something to look forward to
  26. >your new acquaintance, Marble Pie, is already at the spot waiting with a lunch basket
  27. >you manage to actually smile, the first time since you can remember coming here
  28. >you exchange a brief welcome with her and she offers you a veggie sandwich with some lemonade, which you happily accept
  29. >although a veggie sandwich isn't exactly your idea of fine cuisine the pickings have been slim since arriving in Equestria
  30. >the sandwich is actually delicious and you let her know
  31. >she feigns a smile and thanks you, but deep down she's in pain
  32. >you both sit there for a while occasionally breaking the silence to comment on a tree or the sky
  33. >it's getting dark and you both decide to head back
  34. >you are getting used to her company and would like to see her again, she agrees to meet up tomorrow
  35. >when you go back home, you lay on your hay sleeping mat and sigh
  36. >you think about Marble Pie and the last two days you spent with her
  37. >all of a sudden you blush and realize you are starting to catch feelings for her
  38. >which is conflicting because you still love your waifu even after all the terrible things she said
  39. >but part of you knows that you need to move on somehow
  40. >as your mind races around with all different types of possibilities you eventually fall asleep
  41.  
  42. >over the next several weeks you meet with Marble Pie everyday at the same spot at the same time
  43. >you both mostly sit there without saying much, but you can feel that being with her puts you at ease
  44. >one morning you luck out and find a bunch of red orchids, the ones Zecora had requested
  45. >now that you are done work early you still have time before you need to meet with Marble
  46. >an idea pops in that monkey brain of yours
  47. >you make your way to Ponyville, bits in hand
  48. >you head over to Rarity's shop (to her dismay) and inquire about buying a scarf
  49. >she laughs you out of there when you tell her your budget
  50. >alright, plan b. You make your way to the general store
  51. >as you browse the assortment of wares nothing really stands out
  52. >the owner eyeing you up the entire time, but still too wary to ask you what you're looking for
  53. >a small blue bow clip catches your eye and you bring it up to the register
  54. >it's not expensive but you will need to ration your food some more over the next several weeks
  55. >with the bow in hand and a small smile creeping on your face you head to the meeting spot
  56. >once again Marble is waiting for you
  57. >she attempts to smile when you greet her
  58. >you tell her about what plant you had to find earlier, she listens and nods
  59. >after a little while you both go back to what you do best, sitting there quietly
  60. >you still have the bow in your pocket
  61. >you meant to give it to her at the start but you didn't have the courage
  62. >yup, you pull the cowardly move and wait until the last minute
  63. >it's getting dark and Marble mentions that she should head home
  64. >before she can leave you tell her you have a gift for her
  65. >she's a little confused but stands there patiently
  66. >you pull out the blue bow clip and hand it to her
  67. >you ask her if you could be the one to help her get over Big Mac
  68. >she tears up and tells you that she doesn't like you like that
  69. >as you sit there devastated she thanks you for the gift and trots off hurriedly
  70. >you don't cry
  71. >well you have tears but you aren't crying
  72. >you walk back home with your head down
  73. >as you lay on your mat looking up at your ceiling you realize how dumb you are for asking her out
  74. >everypony is repulsed by you but she actually tolerates your company. But to think she would actually like you in a romantic way is crazy
  75. >as tears flow down your cheeks you can't help but laugh
  76.  
  77. >the next morning you feel embarrassed the entire day while searching for some joke plants
  78. >at least no one is here to see your shame
  79. >eventually you find what you need and head home
  80. >but something compels you to check the spot where you've been meeting Marble
  81. >after yesterday you aren't sure what to expect and don't think you have the balls to face her
  82. >with an audible gulp you pull up your pants and make your way
  83. >as you approach the opening you see Marble sitting at her usual spot
  84. >you immediately notice she's wearing the blue bow you gave her
  85. >no turning back now
  86. >you walk over to her and blush as you akwardly greet her
  87. >she actually has a genuine smile and thanks you again for the bow
  88. >she doesn't mention anything about yesterday and instead tells you about her day on the rock farm
  89. >mostly uneventful as usual
  90. >after the conversation frizzles off both of you sit there in comfortable silence
  91. >you still have feelings for her but ultimately you still love your waifu
  92. >who you can never have
  93. >as your brooding thoughts take over, Marble interrupts you to say goodbye
  94. >it's gotten dark out before you even knew it
  95. >you and Marble spend the next weeks doing the same thing
  96. >except one day she asks you a strange question
  97. >"What if we stopped existing"
  98. >you are taken aback by the question and sat there for a moment to think
  99. >you say you don't know but it doesn't sound all that bad
  100. >she nods and thinks over your response
  101. >"Anon, I know where there is a beautiful view overlooking a lake. It's high up and you can see everything, even Ponyville. Would you go there with me?"
  102. >you pause and wonder if you can ask Zecora for a day off. Actually you don't care what Zecora thinks. This is the most interesting thing in your life right now
  103. >you tell her you would like nothing more than to accompany her
  104. >she hugs you out of nowhere
  105. >"T-thank you"
  106. >wow, she feels so warm and soft. You can spend the rest of your life in this position and be okay
  107. >she eventually lets go and says her goodbye for the evening
  108.  
  109. >the next day comes and you hop out of bed and freshen up
  110. >no running water but you manage
  111. >you stop by Zecora's hut and tell her you are taking the day off
  112. >she wasn't happy but didn't seem all that bothered either
  113. >she gave you one of her daily warnings but you've gotten pretty used to them by now
  114. >"I see you have your eye on Marble Pie. But you should stay away instead, or the consequences you will come to dread"
  115. >dealing with Zecora was easier than expected, with a smile on your face you head to the meeting spot
  116. >Marble isn't here yet, you take a seat on your favorite rock
  117. >fairly flat and smooth, it's been almost like a comforting friend over the months
  118. >an hour or two goes by and you start to get nervous
  119. >your mind races over the possibilities: maybe she had second thoughts? Did something bad happen to her? No no, she's probably just helping at the rock farm or something
  120. >as you are panicking you see her in front of you all of a sudden
  121. >"Anon, are you okay?"
  122. "Y-yeah! I was just uh..day dreaming"
  123. >"Oh, okay. I'm surprised to see you here this early"
  124. >Oh. OH. You forgot to tell Marble you were taking the day off from work
  125. "I took the day off from work, since we are going somewhere new"
  126. >"Oh, well I'm glad you're early. We can start heading there now"
  127. >you notice that Marble is in a great mood today for some reason. Which is fairly extraordinary, but you decide not to pry. Why question a good thing?
  128. >as you walk alongside Marble your mind begins to start working overtime again
  129. >what if she's starting to like me? Maybe I still have a chance with her…
  130. >as you make your way out of the clearing you start to ascend a trail leading up
  131. >an hour passes and you notice you aren't in the Everfree anymore
  132. >the dark and gloomy now in the rearview, a more sparse and rocky trail ahead
  133. >the sun beams down and Marble looks happy
  134. >you're happy
  135. >you begin to notice how high you are, you can already start to make out mountains in the distance
  136. >it's early afternoon and you both decide to stop for a break
  137. >there are some fallen tree branches near a pond and decide to sit there
  138. >"Anon, thanks for coming with me. You are the only one I can count on for this. You understand me."
  139. "Sure thing, I'm really enjoying it out here."
  140. >you blush a little bit as you try to keep your cool
  141. >"I know I've already asked a lot from you. I don't think I could do this alone. Did you think anymore about my question from before?"
  142. >crap, you aren't sure what she's talking about
  143. >as you sit there looking baffled she interrupts your thoughts
  144. >"About…not existing…"
  145. "Oh, not really. Why?"
  146. >frogs croak nearby as she looks down
  147. >her positive attitude from earlier vanished in a second
  148. >"I think about it a lot...that's why I wanted you here with me because I thought you understood"
  149.  
  150. >you aren't sure what to say, so you say nothing
  151. >normally the silence you share together is that of calmness, not uneasiness
  152. >eventually you find your words
  153. "I know you still mourn what could have been with Big Mac. I feel the same way, you know that. But I also know I can't dwell on her forever. I'm hurting but being with you has shown me maybe there is something nice in this world after all"
  154. >a small smile cracks on her face
  155. >"You are too sweet Anon….maybe if I met you earlier in time, things would be different"
  156. >Marble scoots next to you and rests her head against you
  157. >without being too awkward you wrap your arm around her
  158. >she feels amazing, if only this moment could last
  159. >"Anon…we need to continue on the trail. I want to show you the summit"
  160. >you nod but wait for her to get up first, there was no way you were taking your arm off her otherwise
  161. >with your emotions running wild you walk the path with her not uttering a word
  162. >Marble looks peaceful as she takes in the view as you make your way to the top
  163. >you walk close to the edge and take in the massive scene before you
  164. >snowy mountain ranges in the far distance, and as promised you can see Ponyville not too far off
  165. >you take a moment to wonder if anything interesting is going on, you always wanted to be apart of their town
  166. >but you weren't allowed to fit in
  167. >and the love of your life telling you that she hates you
  168. >yeah, fuck this place
  169. >Marble Pie notices you aren't looking very happy
  170. >she nuzzles into your stomach
  171. >"Anon, I know you are hurting. Like me. Look down below"
  172. >as you enjoy the sensation of her cute snout, you look down in front and see a glistening lake
  173. "It's beautiful"
  174. >she pulls away and nods at you
  175. >"That's where I am going…"
  176. >you look confused for a moment. Why would she want to go swimming now? Not to mention it would take hours to climb down
  177. >wait, does she mean…?
  178. "Marble! Please don't tell me what I'm thinking…"
  179. >she looks down and nods slowly
  180. >hot tears start flowing down your cheeks
  181. "N-no…"
  182. "No!"
  183. >she looks at you with a sad smile. A smile that has already accepted her fate
  184. >she walks up and hugs you
  185. >words barely coming out as your tears start to fall on her
  186. "Please…there has to be another way. We could run away together and start our own little farm…we could even raise foals together…we could..we could…"
  187. >she hugs you tighter. You feel something wet and notice she's crying
  188. >between sniffles she mutters to you
  189. >"I have to go Anon, I'm sorry. Please remember me as your love"
  190. >Marble looks up at you and kisses you on the lips
  191. >your eyes go wide for a moment and then you close them as you kiss her back
  192. >her tongue swirls around slowly but passionately
  193. >her breath warm and comforting
  194. >your mind melts in pleasure and the feeling of being loved
  195. >after what feels like an eternity, she breaks away
  196. >tears in her eyes as she smiles at you
  197. >she approaches the ledge
  198. "Wait Marble!"
  199. >she looks back at you, straining to meet your eyes
  200. "I'm going with you, my love"
