Here it is, my 200th deviation!
And it took me almost a week to do for some reason... mostly because of Supreme Commander
So... a story behind this picture? It's chronologically the first of my vampire ponies, Luna turning Twilight into a vampire. How did that happen? Well, it was obviously a trap
Why Luna is a vampire? Lets just say that being a princess of the night has it's... additional perks.
Next picture of the series: [link]Edit: added this little piece. thanks to ~Shaleclaw for making it readable
This is not what dying should feel like!
The thought surprised Twilight. Of the hundreds of thoughts racing through her mind as her body was kissed by the cold embrace of death, this one had materialized suddenly and fought its way to the forefront. That single thought was now an anchor of her panicking mind.
The cold stone floor and gentle breeze in her coat, even wetness of her own tears and the burning pain from the open wound on her neck became distant, almost irrelevant in her rapidly collapsing universe. She could hear her rapid, shallow breaths and the desperate pounding of her heart as her body fought a losing battle to supply her brain with oxygen and preserve the last sparks of the life within her. Yet here she was, thinking how absurd this situation turned out to be—especially how her last words were 'yes, I trust you' spoken moments before a set of incredibly sharp teeth sank into her neck. It may have actually been rather funny if it wasn't for that fact that she now lay bleeding to death on the stone floor of a ruined castle that nopony ever visited; alone, save for the pony she had believed she could trust. The pony who was the perpetrator of the slow and agonizing death she was now experiencing.
She could not see Luna and she was physically unable to turn her head to face her. She fought to speak, to voice the single unspoken question to the Princess of the Night that her dying mind desperately sought to know the answer to: why? Why did she betray her? Why was she now lying here dying?
Another heartbeat passed and another burning breath filled her lungs.
More than anything, Twilight simply wanted to understand what happened. How is this supposed to save Equestria and her friends? She remembered the vision; she would die anyway in a pointless struggle to save other ponies. How exactly was killing her now going to change that?
Unless... It wasn't the dying part?
"Embrace the night, Twilight Sparkle" the soft, yet commanding voice of Princess Luna broke through the haze that almost completely enveloped Twilight's mind. "Join me, and become strong enough to save your friends and all of us!"
Twilight strained to hear another heartbeat. It never came.
