Quotes from the Fandom #2, June 20th, 2011

This week’s edition of “Quotes from the Fandom” is all about the fanfiction! Both of the fanfics I’ve quoted here are personal favorites of mine, and hold a special place in my heart. Today, I salute you, fanfiction writers; may we all strive each day to, like you, prove that the pen is mightier than the sword.

“What does that mean, [to be a princess]? To me it means I have a duty to fulfill. A duty I have failed for a thousand years, and still fail every day. Please, do not praise me for what I have not done. It is a hollow title, not worth the mention, and it shames me to hear my name spoken alongside my sister’s…”

-Luna (from the fanfiction “Spark,” by AVeryStrange)

……………………………………………………………………………………………….

“Soon, my most faithful student, the time will come when I send you out into the world to learn its ways. In that time, I believe, you will discover many great and wonderful truths about friendship. But allow me to give you the first lesson now. It is this: that all things pass in the course of time, that forever does not exist. That every Hello contains within itself the echoes of its own Goodbye. That for every person you come to know in your journey through life, no matter how long you know them, there will always come a day when you will see them for the last time. And yet…And yet… it is all worth it. The time between Hello and Goodbye, if you fill it properly, will sustain you through all your days. Every shared moment, every laugh, every precious sliver of time spent with someone you care for is a treasure, to be kept safe forever.”

-Twilight Sparkle (from the fanfiction “Circle of Friends,” by Kiyyik)

This one comes in picture form, taken from an Anonymous post on Ponychan. I won’t usually have more than two quotes a week, but this one I felt really went with the other two.

  1. QuillDipper

    Wow. That second one was just…. Wow.

  2. Shasharala

    Very impressive.
    I am just in awe and shock right now.

  3. Straisin

    wow… those quotes were really moving. Although the latter two got to me more, that’s probably because I haven’t read the fanfic that went with the first one beforehand. Anyhow, I’ve read the circle of friends before and I have to say that I’ve never cried as much as I did when I read it. Well, thanks for the quotes, keep up the great work!

  4. I actually didn’t liked Luna’s quote, but all the others… are really, really moving and inspiring. It’s very nice to see that this fandom is filled with lots of smart and sensible individuals. Once again, thanks for sharing! 😀
