***>There were disastrous consequences to separating a magical being from its' original plane.>At least, that was what every book that Sunset Shimmer had read on the subject said.>So, after the portal to Equestria was well and truly destroyed, she was shocked that it wasn't her that had collapsed in agonizing, unbearable pain.>It was Pinkie Pie.>Dread flooded her system and her bones felt like lead as she stumbled over to her, dropping to her knees when she got close enough.
"P-pinkie," Sunset gasped, resting her hands on Pinkie's collar.>She could feel the subtle beat-beat-beat of her heart, but it felt strained.>"Sunset?" Pinkie moaned softly, peaking up at her through her mountain of bubblegum curls.
"Pinkie! W-what's happening? What is this-">"I did it," Pinkie muttered.
"Pinkie... What...">"Twi said this would happen..." Pinkie sucked in a sharp breath of air, even as she then doubled over into a rib-wracking coughing fit.
"Pinkie!">Pinkie pulled in a sharp, shuddering breath, her face was slick with sweat and more pale than Sunset had ever seen her.>"Twi... Twi said you'd die when...">Pinkie shuddered as she suppressed another coughing fit.>"She said you'd die when the portal shut off."
"No...">Sunset's eyes watered as she gripped Pinkie's hand.>"I did what I had to do, to save you."
"Pinkie...">"Twi said it'd be a one way ticket, but I didn't think it'd hurt this bad," Pinkie joked.>Sunset shuddered as a sob ripped a path up her throat.>She let her head fall into Pinkie's shoulder as fat, wet tears spilled down her cheeks.
"W-why?" Sunset gasped.>"...You really don't know?">It was a strain for Pinkie to say that, and not because of the impending drain on her life force.
"Know what?">"Sunset... I love you.">It was whispered, barely audible over the blood rushing through her ears.
"Pinkie!">"Sunset...">She took in a great, shuddering gasp, and turned her head towards the waning sun.
