if you try hard enough, any prompt can be about butts.

Seeing how the prompt this time is "Here at the End of all Things", you don't even have to try too hard.

Nice. My only suggestion would be to extend the drawing period a little bit. In the last round I had to read quite fast to find a story which inspired me enough to draw something, two days into the event, I'd only read a third of the entries, and had to choose one to start drawing. More time would let the artists read more entries, thus increasing the chances of finding a story which will get the juices flowing.

Now I have to participate.

I'll try my hand at a few mash-ups. They seem fun.

Death by Lamia: Princess Celestia grows tired of Blueblood's irreprehensible behaviour and incontrolable urges, and in an effort to give him a taste of his own medicine, he arranges him to seduce a mythical creature. Contains sensible material regarding murder, sexual abuse, and eating disorders.

At the Wake of Dawn: Starlight wakes up and can't make head or tails of her own thought process. Deeming these thoughts not fit to share with the rest of Equinity, she decides to exile herself. Monologues, regrets, divisive literary choices.

Cutiesugi: When a filly appears having lost her cutie mark, Pinkie Pie, Spike and Apple Bloom decide to paint her a new one. Mystery, Introspective analysis of the worth of the individual, Arts and Crafts tips.

Room Enough For Wub: Vinyl Scratch summons an echo of Starswirl's mind through an accident involving her turntable and a bottle of wine. They both bond and share happy times together. High-level magic, bogus tunes, questionable ethics, heart-warming romance.

Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M.

I'm sure everyone who stayed up late finishing their entries can corroborate this.

I have a soft spot for small conversational pieces, they can deliver a solid experience in a single scene, and this does precisely that.

Twilight's princesshood being an obstacle to a normal relationship is something you don't see too often, and when you do see it, it's usually focused on contrasting her longevity with that of normal ponies. This is much simpler, and therefore more relatable. There's a lot of drama to be had regarding Twilight's status as a hurdle to pass in the pursuit of love, and you did a good job presenting that idea as well as addressing it with Celestia's view on the matter.

I only wish it could've dwelled deeper on Twilight's thoughts after Celestia gives her advice, because I feel the story wraps up too quickly from that point onwards. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed your story.

You just had to open your mouth, didn't you?

Alright...

First off, let me sum my voice to the ones before me who called for a better tonal consistency. The intro seems to be setting a satirical comedy with Twilight being haunted by the voice of Rod Sterling, and I'm not going to lie, I'd love to read that story. However, the latter portion seems to be going for a more straightforward suspense/horror scenario akin to an actual episode of the Twilight Zone. Whichever your aim was, author, I suggest you define what exactly that was and fully embrace it.

Onto more specific criticism, I feel the first three paragraphs are a bit superfluous. Just one concise and descriptive sentence to establish the setting should be enough. Hell, you could probably even start with Rod's intro right of the bat and describe Twilight's shock afterwards. That way the sense of unease and the knowledge something is off comes more clearly to the reader.

It's just a suggestion, but take it as a sign that this story is brimming with potential.
