This piece is dedicated to the six heroes of Equestria who risk their very lives to protect us from threats we would dare not imagine. It is the duty they swore into, long before they knew it was their destiny all along.
There is nothing to be envied, or desired, in this cruel fate. Yet we look up to them. And as we sleep comfortably in our beds, blissfully unaware of the rising threats, our heroes will face them head on. They will fight for us...
...and fall for us.
