Everyone cites My Little Dashie. But by far, NOTHING can be sadder than Final Dreams of a Filly (also known as "I couldn't wake you, because you can never wake up again..." or somesuch on FiMFiction):

I read that one.

It was really sad, and I cried when Rainbow Dash is at the funeral and breaks down at Scootaloo's casket and says "Why didn't you tell me? I would've taken care of you!"

I refuse to believe that Scootaloo actually dies in the end though. I think that it was a dream, they actually save her at the hospital, and then Rainbow Dash adopts her.

Far better ending in my mind, and not as heart wrenching.

They're both up there in the "MANLY TEARS" section of my brain.

I think I am broken, I felt nothing but that, once again, I should stick to read fics recommended by users that know what I like.

I made the bad decision of smoking 2 blunts before reading "Somewhere Only We Know" and after reading the thing I watched this.
I was literally numb for like a week. And I couldn't stop listening to the song which made it worse.

I get the distinct feeling "the cold hand of mercy" is meant to be but all I can think of is "Dead like me" it's still sad but kinda ruins the mood

Oh God I know that feel OP. I teared up a little when I read "My Little Dashie" but only because it was basically a parellel for a parent saying goodbye to their child.

This on the other hand, had me bawling like a little bitch. I thought I would be fine at the beginning but when Rainbow Dash showed up at the funeral I just lost it.

I actually shed tears to My Little Dashie, but not to Final Dreams. For me it was a stroy that wasn't so much sad as one that just makes you think.

No tears shed. I... I really must have no soul...

This, on the other hand, made me weep like a baby: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/455/Pretty-in-Pink

I would have cried, but I accidentally scrolled down to the comments in chapter 2 and lol'd a bit. After that I couldn't get inside the story again.

I'm sad but no manly tears were shed.

Bubbles was well written to say the least... and also really freaking sad. Oh boy, I was indeed fighting off tears.

I don't cry at tearjerker fics, but I thought Final Dream was way better than My Little Dashie. The bit that woulda broke me if I let it was Sweetie trying to sing Hush Now Quiet Now and breaking... dang! That is some high octane tearjerker right there, and artistically come by.

This made me cry. MLD didn't. I am in fact a pretty hard case when it comes to crying - even the numerous pics/stories about spike outgrowing Twilight and the others didn't get me.

But FDoAF got me. Right in the heart. I think ponies dying does it for me.
>> No. 74847
Ha, I was one of those people.
That's bizarre too, because it's not even the saddest Pony story I've read, but the only one that actually made me cry. I think it's just because I can't take sad Pinkie Pie.

As for sad stories, I personally consider Helix Aspersa to be the saddest, though I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that thinks so. Like Bubbles, it's a sad story about a foal in a dim situation, but for some reason Snail's story hits me harder. At least we know Derpy's situation gets better sometime in the future.
I didn't see any hope at all for poor Snails, nopony is on his side, not even Snips when you get down to it. Nothing super tragic happens, nopony dies or anything, just overtones of loneliness and everyday sadness. The part where he's so excited to get his cutie mark and his parents just shake their heads in shame breaks my heart every time.
It never made me cry, just kinda depressed for the little fella.

I'm in the Team Snails camp and I'm hoping that puberty does wonders on him.

Man, I don't get this obsession with My Little Dashie.

It was ALRIGHT at best. There was a tinge of sadness there too. I didn't find it interesting.

Im suprised no one mentioned Simply Rarity yet, after reading I always look at Rarity different. Another one is Forever is Forever, although the author quit a while ago, so it might be hard to find.

... Or the author was surprised at how often people were trying to find it, and put it up on FimFic.
