Oh fuck, yeah I could do that.>"Where are we?"
"To be honest I'm not entirely sure.">"Are we dead?"
"No, death is... different.">"You know what it's like to die?">You feel a pang in your chest as you recall the horrible sound that she made when she was crushed.>You want to ask her why she doesn't know herself, but it's all so...
"It's complicated.">You look at Peanut and smile, and she returns the favor.
"I don't know why you're here, but I'm really glad. I've missed you.">"I've missed you too, where have you been?"
"All over the place, in different bodies, in different times and places in the polyverse...">"What's a polyverse?"
"A word I came up with just now because I'm tired of hearing reddit fag- ponies say multiverse. The gist of it is that there are a bunch of different versions of you, everyone you've ever known, and there are also deviations going back to the beginning of time that caused vastly different universes to form.">"What's the last thing you remember?"
"Oh, I was going through another manufactured tear and I just kinda ended up here... you wouldn't happen to have any sort of light, would you?">"I swiped a match from one of the ponies that were...">She shudders in the dim light.
"I don't think a match is going to cut it, I guess we should stick together.">You'd ask for your hoodie back because of the cold, but you don't have the heart to and she looks so cute in it.>One of her damaged wings twitches a bit under it and your heart just wants to kill itself.>You get to your hooves and nuzzle up next to her, feeling her soft facial fluff brush against yours.>"That tickles, Clover!"
"Heh, not the bad sort though, right?">"N-no, it feels nice."
"Come on, let's see if there's a door here.">"Why wouldn't there be a door?"
"You have a lot to learn about the kind of weird shit you encounter hopping between timelines.">...>There thankfully was a door this time, so you didn't have to use the C-4 that Twilight helped you get ahold of.>The two of you look over a beautiful mountainscape, but the first question that comes to your mind is what the hell the building you're in is.>You feel a twinge of sadness as you look up and see one of the soaring pillars of Canterlot Castle toppled over into the mountain face.>There's no sound here save the animals, you've found another dead world.
"The others can't be far, we should get moving.">"Ooh! Clover! It's chocolate!"
"I'm sure it can't still be good Peanut, please don't eat-">"No, no! Look!">You trot over to the case that she found and see that it's prepper-grade chocolate.
"O-oh. Let's pick some up and get moving Peanut.">"Y-yeah, I guess."
"What's wrong?">"I've never had chocolate before, and I kinda want to just appreciate it here with you. Before we meet whatever adventuring crew you're with these days...">Her talent of making your heart hurt really is incredible.
"Okay, let's sit down. Enjoy the view for a few minutes.">"A-are you sure?"
"Yeah, I think we've both earned a bit of a nice rest.">You don't even want to think about the last timeline with the living furries.>After a few minutes, the two of you find some rocking chairs that the Royal Guard presumably used when they were off-duty and just sit enjoying the view.>Trees stretch out as far as even your massive eyes can see, birds flitting over the mountains.>You unwrap one of the chocolates and you and Peanut break it in half.>You're reminded of her namesake as you bite down on the admittedly not very sweet bar, but she seems to be in heaven.>As you continue to chew and observe a few birds flying overhead that you think might be hawks, Peanut rests her muzzle on your neck.>"Thank you so much Clover. For everything.">You're not crying, your eyes are just really really dry.
"Y-you too Peanut.">Twilight will find you eventually, she put a tracking spell on you after all. You're just going to stay here for a while...
