Mare of the Ministry of Morale's Final Moments by HaveBKYourWay Mare of the Ministry of Morale's Final Moments by HaveBKYourWay
Pinkie Pie's imminent immolation from Fallout Equestria

Update: This is Pinkie's death as I understood it in my reading of original FoE. After posting this picture I was informed that Project Horizons modified the death. I found and read the passage in question. After a few minutes of biased contemplation I decided that I prefer the original version.

The feels in this scene...!

I would have died trying to use my body as a shield to protect her. i dont care what happens to me as long as she lives.

Oh come on! Now i have to get a bucket for this.

Hey, it's too early in the morning to get me to cry.

FO:E was brilliant at creating a roller coaster of heartbreak and heartwarming. You captured one of the greatest heartbreaks quite well. 
Istarian Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015
Yeah. It's sad and ironic (?) that the mane six met their respective ends alone and in disharmony with each other.
MLP-NovelIdea Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Professional Writer
Not quite. Applejack made it all the way through. We don't know the fate of Rainbow Dash. And Rarity gave her life to save Fluttershy...and there's no higher calling than that. Those little bits are what managed to keep me going. Kkat did a good job of mixing up the final fates.
Istarian Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015
Where did ' Applejack made it all the way through'? I think it's fair to say that in the original story at least short of ghoulification, Rainbow Dash is almost certainly dead and gone. I got the impression that Rarity saved Fluttershy regardless of whether she wanted to be saved or not. Then the poison joke and whatnot got her, so much for salvation. Fluttershy has the most to regret and the most to suffer at least internally/mentally. She would be well within reason to blame herself for the ultimate outcome.

They really weren't very good friends by the end and they were all alone.

Applejack got into stable 2, and because as Littlepip found out, Applejack couldn't get back to Steelhooves, or rather, Applesnack, because Sweetie Bell wouldn't let her because Applejack was pregnant. Applejack had worked on the orchard, until she was physically uncapable, so then she worked in the kitchen to cook for the stable until she died. She was buried under the orchard instead of being cremated.

"Don't let me burn." I'm sorry I kind of like that myself. She didn't burn. She was shot before it could happen.
HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
Oh, good. Let's just put a damper on the catharsis of the original death. After all, don't we just hate it when stories make us feel?

Do you suppose I could legitimately change Fo:Eq's canon around to suit my whims if I were to write a long enough story? Perhaps it was unjust that Fluttershy became a tree? How about that whole ending sequence was just a dream Littlepip had, and the real Fluttershy was obliterated by an errant missile immediately after being teleported? Now let me just write a long as hell narrative, and then it is canon. For everyone.
Sturmlion1 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015
Different Folks, Different Strokes. I like the idea that Pinkie Pie didn't burn to death. Have you ever seen someone burn to death? I have. A bullets a mercy.
So it may be. But wishing for something does not make it so. In Fallout: Equestria, Pinkie Pie is implied to have burned along with every other living thing in Manehattan. It was terrible. It was intended to be. In my opinion, a bullet adds nothing of value. It just complicates the narrative.
Sturmlion1 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2015
True, but also different stories and the Bullet was used to explain another character and there mental breakdown. Big enough toybox for people to play in I think for different interpretations.

Pinkie died from the balefire. I find it ridiculous that somepony would walk into the building as the town was being bombed, just to shoot her. I hate it when people try to soften the tough life that is found in the fallout of Equestria. Pinkie Pie died horribly, with no hope and no friendship, but there's nothing you can do about it.
Sturmlion1 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015
People follow orders. And her orders were to kill Pinkie. And she did so. And like I said earlier, I would prefer the bullet to burning. Burning to death is horrible.
Secret0Fun Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
:/ Littlepip would have seen a bullet hole. And, seriously? Again, anypony would die from entering the building because of the fact that it was ten seconds away from a balefire detonation. 
I hate it when people write fanfictions and draw art that is 100% noncanon. 
It's like someone drawing a Season 4 unicorn Twilight Sparkle.

It's not a thing. It doesn't exist. It didn't happen.

Pinkie Pie could have easily been snuck up on because of withdrawls, and been shot pointblank. Also, she would have done nothing about it if she did know, because she knew she would die no matter what. Pinkie Pie would have known what happened to Twilight if she had been on PTMs, but being sworn off it, didn't. 

Your theory is completely possible, but doesn't make sense. Please tell me, who murdered Pinkie Pie anyway?

HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2014
She could not have listened to Littlepip, that would have created a paradox.
nightengale1028 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2014

This is the most saddest pony picture I have seen in my life.
ILM126 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Student Digital Artist
This is one of the saddest part of the story ;_;
Celefin Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014
Littlepip discovering the fate of Pinkie (and finding the Twilight statuette) was one of the most heartwrenching scenes. Thanks for sharing.

PH didn't modify her death persay. so long as the bullet didn't hit any bones, the scene littlepip came upon would have been the same.
HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner May 17, 2014
Sure, Kkat didn't explicitly walk us through the death scene. But that was unnecessary because it was obvious. Pinkie Pie died in the balefire. Occam's Razor dictates it must be so.

Damn, can hardly believe I made this a year ago. How time flies.
Lithov Featured By Owner May 8, 2014
I wish somebody would draw this scene with the focus on Pinkie's face, similar to the first Sonic Rainboom scene ( )
Freethinker5 Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
At least she was able to fling a light into the future.

Dont cry........ DONT CRY....... :crying: rvmp

i legitimately felt bad for what happens to pinkie and the message not getting through to twilight, this and the steel hooves moment (you know the one) 
ScarletLightning565 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This scene was a very close second in the feels department for me, right behind the quite off-hand mention of Lyra's demise in Canterlot.
darttrapdoor Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014
For me this was the most tragic arc of the Ministry Mares. Was not a good idea to be teasing that scene in a pub - barely held it together.

'But...but...Pinkie Pie can't die...she Pinkie Promised...SHE PINKIE PROMISED!' *Sobs Uncontrollably*

Seriously though, good artwork, even if looking at it stabs me in the heart, eyes and lungs all at once! ^_^

I know exactly how you feel. Dem manly tears.

this part made me cry the most
PushyP3ach Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013
Dammit I worked so hard to forget that scene, and now you go and thrust it in mah face! D:
HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013
Nonsense. You clicked the thumbnail to this image. Why did you click that link, hmm? You love that sadness, don't you? You see a wonderful character you have grown attached to in a pit of despair, about to be burned alive and you think, "Awww yea I love me some grimdark! Bring on that emotional pain!"

It's not just me right?
siddelthekiddel Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
;-; Now that I think about it, this is a lot better than the PH version. The other one seems too rash, hardly dramatic. Whereas this one invokes feels much better.
BenRG Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013

War never changes; ponies do but not the paths they trot.

This time, ponykind had no choice but to follow this path... to the very end.

Oh my word. One of the saddest parts in the whole book. I cried my eyes out when Littlepip discovered Pinkie's remains. :(

Rekozg Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Nice picture. I like the colors and the composition. Those safes on the exterior wall are bit strange though. Are they hanging out from the outside of the building or just really shallow inside?
HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
I am grateful that you cared enough to leave a comment. I just tweaked it and I think it looks better. Hooray for the nature of vectors!
