I'm just guessing here, since this is my first time reading this, that Starflare will be the one to sacrifice his life to destroy the stone. Ties in with the "If I succeed, I won't be able to see you again." Idk, just a thought.
NOT that I want any spoilers (she said with a totally straight face), but please, TELL me it's NOT Twilight who dies in this. She...and the whole gang...have gone through WAY too much in this as it is.
I don't think that Applejack could take loosing her leader and friend again for real this time, for one.
*sighs in soft resignation* But IF that happens, I just want you to know that I'll be VERY disappointed, but this is YOUR story, and you know what's going to ultimately happen in it, so, whatever DOES happen, I, like the REST of your readers and fans, am with you to the end of this.
Still and all, I just hope that she DOES live.
*crosses fingers for just that, and stays cautiously optimistic*
Oh, no. Nonononono...NO!!! After EVERYTHING that Twilight (ESPECIALLY her!) and her friends have through in this thing; her being attacked, faking her death; etc.; Star Swirl can-NOT just drop this one on her and expect her to basically tell them,"Hey, guess what, guys? Our Elements won't WORK against the Dark Crown 'cause they'll think IT'S the REAL Element of Magic, and won't work against it to destroy it and Harvest. Sooooo, according to the spirit of Star Swirl the Bearded, I gotta sacrifice myself for everypony else in Equestria and die for REAL this time. Sorry 'bout that. I love you and tell Shining and Mom and Dad I love them, too."
Because in all honesty (glares at the smirking Applejack), I don't think that ANY of them are going to TAKE that too well!!!
Metal, bud, you know I love you, but I sincerely hope that this is NOT what this is leading up to after all this: that Twilight is going to have to die to stop Harvest, and see to the total and final destruction of him AND that blasted Crown.
No matter WHAT happens, though, I'm with this story...and you...to the (hopefully not) bitter end.
I just hope that there's ANOTHER twist that saves her. Something just tells me that Star Flare AIN'T quite as "broken" as Star Swirl THINKS he is.
Like I said, there are so many loose ends that have not been tied yet, AND many potential "heroes", plus M-K is a competent writer, and he wouldn't just kill off a canon character like this......not to mention that Metal-Kitty loves to give us a twist a minute (I mean all that in a good way).
