Feel"s bad, bronies... AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2511348[View All]

I have a sad but heartwarming story of friendship and magic, bronies…

Every so often, I volunteer in my city’s Children’s Hospital and provide some youthful fun to the young kids there. A while ago, I developed a good friendship with this ten year old girl named Sarah. She’s simply adorable, but she was fighting cancer. She’s a First Nations girl, and her parents gave her up, essentially not wanting to deal with her intensive care. When she hasn’t been in the hospital, she’s been in an orphanage. I came to be something of a big brother to her, and she was another little sister to me. We’d tell each other jokes, play games, and talk about what happened that day.

One day, I asked her if she could keep a very important secret. She eagerly said “Of course!” I told her I was a brony. She laughed so hard, people in the wing turned to look at us and ask what was so funny. True to her word, she replied with the usual “nothing”. She told me she had never seen the show and couldn’t understand how I, a guy twice her age, could like a girl’s show. So I did the only thing I could think of; bring my laptop to the hospital and watch My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with her.

We watched all the episodes together, and discussed our favourite ponies. I couldn’t help but be rather somber when she told who her favourite was. Sarah’s favourite pony is Pinkie Pie, and let me tell you why. Sarah told me that Pinkie Pie was her favourite because she helped her face her fear of dying. Pinkie taught her to laugh when she was afraid or sad, and to always keep your chin up when you’re feeling down. It was her birthday about a month ago, so I bought her a Pinkie Pie pony from Toys ‘R Us (I got so many weird looks in the store). She was feeling really sick that day (from chemo), but her face lit up when she opened the box to see a brand new Pinkie Pie. Her Pinkie Pie, to help keep her safe and happy. She told me it was the best gift she had ever gotten in her entire life.

The last time I saw her was six days ago, just a few days before my birthday. She had been getting worse with each month, but she was always happy to get a visit from me. This time was different. She was hooked up to more equipment that usual, and couldn’t even sit up. She gave me an early birthday card, which had a hand drawn Fluttershy inside. She also gave me a balloon she had received from an orderly. I asked her how she and Pinkie Pie were doing and she just smiled weakly at me and said that they were doing great, even though she knew she was getting worse. I told her I would come visit her on Monday for Halloween and give her some candy if she could stomach it. She smiled again, and said she looked forward to seeing all the costumes around the hospital.

I got a call today that I knew would come, but had always dreaded. Sarah had passed away. When I got off work, I just sorta stumbled around in a daze, got on the bus to the hospital, and practically sleepwalked into the hospital. I finally came to Sarah’s room, which was now empty. No more Sarah. The bed had been made, and most of the medical equipment moved. I wondered if I had entered the wrong room, but I knew it was the right one. As I walked out holding back tears, a nurse called out to me. “Excuse me sir, are you Anon?” I told her I was and she told me heavily that Sarah had passed away. I told her that I was aware, but had hoped to say goodbye at least. The nurse then brought me to her desk telling me that Sarah had left me something.

I saw Sarah’s Pinkie Pie lying there on the desk.

The nurse told me that shortly before Sarah died, she asked her if I had stopped by and referred to me as her brother. Sarah told her I was indeed her brother, but that I was going to see her on Halloween. Sarah passed away with Pinkie Pie in her hand, and the nurse said it felt right that I should have it as a memento.

I’ve rarely cried so hard in my life.

I’m looking at her Pinkie Pie right now, looking back at me. It’s comforting to know that this pink little pony helped get this girl through something I cannot even begin to understand or know how to deal with. All I ask, is that when you all are out trick or treating or partying on Halloween, please do so in honour of Sarah. She wasn’t a sister by blood, but she was my sister in spirit, and ponies have helped us in the darkest of times.

Love and tolerance.

Could not stifle the tears. Didn't want to... And then I took my Pinkie Pie brushable in trembling hands and cried all over again.

OP, I just want to give you a great big hug for doing what you did for this little girl. You're a hero. Nothing less.

This is a truly touching story. I am sorry for your loss. But, remember you made the trip so much easier for her, and you should be proud of that.

Absolutely touching story.

I hope, wherever Sarah is now, that she remembers you and what you did to help her through her time.

Thank God for Bronies, thank God for you.

The chaos of the life-support machinery and the bare hospital ceiling was all Sarah could see. It was a chore to simply raise her head in hopes of seeing the balloons and the flowers around the room. She thought of the upcoming Halloween Monday. She thought of her "brother"--very much like an actual brother--whom she hadn't seen for way too long. He had promised her he would come visit her on that Monday, that he would bring candy, and that together they would look at the costumes parading about the hospital. Now it was only... how many days till Halloween?

It was hard to remember. It was hard to think. It was hard to see.

Very slowly, weakly, Sarah tried turning and lifting her head a little to take a look at the wall calendar. She made a few attempts, then gave up and nestled her head in the pillow again. She would maybe cry from this, but if there was something she had learned in the last few months, it was that when the sad and the scary things tried to get you down, you had just to try and laugh your problems away. Sarah clenched her hand even harder, the hand where she was holding her companion, her memento, Pinkie Pie.

She vaguely tried to recall the lyrics to Giggle at the Ghostie, but now thoughts slugged along like molasses, and soon Sarah found herself falling asleep. Only it was a bad kind of sleepiness: she also felt colder and weaker and the colors were draining from the world, and again, had she not the support of the gleeful pink pony, she would try to shout. Instead, she just smiled.

Then, as far as she knew, she fell asleep and woke up without noticing anything in between. But she must had been sleeping for some time... why otherwise would the room change?

Sarah lifted herself up and glanced around. Everything seemed to be in place, but... blurry, foggy, as if observed from kilometers away. And empty, with nopony to be seen around, not a single nurse, not a single patient.

"Hello?" she called out. "Anypony here?" She wasn't quite sure what was happening, or just not ready to admit it yet. But she instinctively tried to clutch the Pinkie Pie figurine again--and found out her fingers were holding nothing.

Oh no, Sarah thought. I've lost her! Where--

A voice from behind piped up: "Finally you've woken up, Sleepyhead McSleepson!"

Sarah turned around hurriedly, only to come face-to-face with a smiling pink face, enshrouded in a pinker mane not unlike cotton candy. "Are you-- Is this--", she stammered.

"My name is not Isthis, silly!" The pony giggled sweetly. "It's me, Pinkie Pie, and I just can't get over how awesome it is you finally woke up, I mean, you're almost late for your party!" Before Sarah realized what was going on, she found herself lifted and seated upon Pinkie Pie's back. "I think it's about time for you to have some fun, and believe me, it's going to be the bestest party ever, and I do mean EVER--", the pony chattered as she bounced away, towards the blurry wall, through it, and then into a black, but oddly comforting and peaceful darkness; "--there'll be balloons and streamers and pin the tail on the pony and confetti and cake and games and dancing and singing and I invited everypony I could, and I think you wanted to take part in the Nightmare Night celebration, and we're going to have that as well!"

And atwitter like that, Pinkie Pie continued with her young passenger towards a light visible in the distance, a light that beckoned with twirling rainbow colors and increasingly louder, jolly music.

---

"It's over", the nurse declared quietly, laying her hand on Sarah's unmoving heart while the machinery mourned with a flat tone.

But, elsewhere entirely, the party was just beginning.

And there was a special guest invited, though he didn't know that yet, deep in grief. But no matter when would he set out to the party--and it would be a long time before he would--he was guaranteed to arrive in time.

man.....bro i am so sorry. there really isnt much that can be said for something like that. that poor girl had a very hard life at such a young age. its good to know that there are still a few decent people in the world that will go out of theyre way to make one scared little girl feel good during the darkest days of her life. she was lucky to know you and its my wish that there were more people in the world like yourself. just remember what this angel taught you and help others the way you helped Sarah, and perhaps we can still make the world a better place.

Truly, you are an absolutely magnificent person for what you did, making the last days of a young girl's life so much better and helping her quell the fear of death <well done Pinkie =D >
This tale has renewed my faith in humanity, thank you..
I wish i could do more than sit here feeling somewhat miserable yet proud and being sorry for your loss.
/sigh... life can be a right bitch sometime.. but even still, people like you help make the world a better place, congratulations /hugs..

Oh dear. Having read this after a long series of different depressing stories about Pinkie's past, this just put the icing on the cake. I actually shed a few tears after hearing this. I'm so sorry for your loss. While I don't believe in Heaven, where ever Sarah may be right now, I hope she's happy.

What a sad yet beautiful story. You have touched the hearts of many. Mine included.

Reading this, makes me think of my father. We had never bonded much until my mother abandoned us. He had retired so we had more time together and we bonded. Not a month later he went to the hospital and died on thanksgiving, this year.

Makes me think of hoe beautiful it can be to bond with somepony, to grow a magical friendship and how delicate yet never ending it is.

OP, you are amazing.

Apologies to all who were offended. I wrote that out of boredom and spite, which of course never breeds anything good. In all seriousness, my blessings go out to Sarah. No-one deserves such a fate, but for dealing with it so well she deserves nothing short of an angelic choir.
