    Live from Everfree NW

    Wee! Fun day so far! Did Yoga with Ingrid Nilson (voice of Maud Pie), and have been otherwise enjoying the convention. Still, for those of you there or around, here is everywhere you can find me with a 99% certainty.

    Friday 6:15 PM

    Location: Crystal "Foyer" (Not sure exactly where this is. Believe it's the area outside the vendor's hall.)

    Event: Several fan-fiction authors will be gathering for a autograph session. I've got little 4x6 prints of the Past Sins dust cover and my author portrait I can sign for anyone. And of course I'll sign other things at request.

    Friday 9:00 PM

    Location: Peninsula

    Event (Panel): Generating Genius Panel: Writing Clever Characters and Smart Stories

    Saturday 10:00 AM

    Location: Glacier

    Event (Panel): Rookie Writers: Getting Started in Storytelling

    Saturday 4:45 PM

    Location: Columbia A

    Event (Panel): Framing Friendship: Putting Depth Into Relationships

    You'll also have a chance of finding me at the "chillouts" the convention is holding in the evenings (about the same time as Ponystock) as well as the Iron Author competition.

    Hope you all have an enjoyable weekend wherever you are.

    Everfree NW & Past Sins Video

    So, lot of things to discuss really quickly here today. First, I'll be at Everfree NW this weekend. I'll be on a total of four panels and, because Everfree NW is that kind of awesome, I actually have a slot in the autograph room as well. Don't know how many people will actually come, but I'm going to try and have a little something for those who do.

    Also, in Past Sins related news, The Road Home is now on it's 7th chapter and we've been managing to keep the update schedule to two weeks pretty reliably. (Though my buffer is slipping away. Curse you chapter 11 and real life work!) Also, Cross Guard and his team have put out the second part of their Past Sins animation. So go over and give them some love if you enjoy Past Sins.

    Thank you all so much! 7K Follower Milestone

    You managed to sneak it by me, you devils. With a sudden rush of fresh followers yesterday, I hit the 7,000 mark.

    That just floors me. Because, I think I've told you all this before, my hometown is only 5,000. There are now 2,000 more people stalking me than the population of the only home I knew until I left for college. That's just crazy.

    So thank you! Thank you all so very much for enjoying the stories I write enough to click that little button. And it's just more amazing to me that, because of all of you, I am the first writer on Fimfiction to reach the milestone. That creates a 4-milestone record. All thanks to everyone here, I was the first to reach 4,000, the first to reach 5,000, the first to reach 6,000, and now the first to reach 7,000.

    I wish I had something prepared, but between work, Babscon, and The Road Home, I didn't have much time to even consider what to do for this milestone.

    So, I am going to  throw that out to everyone here. What would you personally like to see from me as a thank you for helping reach this wonderful milestone? I'm open to most ideas, and if we get several good ones I'll try to run a poll to pick get the one everyone wants most.

    Beyond that, thank you again and have an amazing day, week, month, and year.

    The Road Home & S5E3 Castle Sweet Castle

    This was why I wanted to have the first three chapters of The Road Home out before this episode aired. It was an episode I enjoyed, but at the same time some similar ground was tread. Thankfully, I feel The Road Home is going for a slightly different moral. So the story will continue largely unchanged. (Though, I'll admit, I may include tree-root chandelier of memories. That is a wonderful thing.)

    So where does that leave you the readers? Well, Past Sins already fell into AU territory a while ago. Now the two universes are just growing more different. The Road Home is any other take on the same concept that Castle Sweet Castle touches on, thus it makes sense that it's a replacement for S5E3 in the Past Sins timeline. It also switches up the ordering of events as well, since The Road Home happens before the events of the Season 5 opener, Cutiemarkless.

    With that said, I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend. The 4th chapter of The Road Home should be out

    Thursday, April 16th. (I'm shooting with a bi-weekly posting that may go down to weekly once I have some of the later chapters sorted.)

Through unknown means, Sombra amassed an army and launched an attack against the Crystal Empire and a changeling sub-hive. This forces Celestia and Chrysalis to meet, and agree to a temporary alliance between their kinds. Neither is happy about the situation, but for the lives of the ponies and changelings they lead, they are willing to do what is necessary.

Yet, as weeks and months pass, the pair find working together is not as horrible as they originally believed. Is a lasting peace, and perhaps more, possible between ponies and changelings, between a princess and a queen?

Twilight, after becoming an alicorn, finds her plain unicorn magic has been increased drastically. Yet, she wonders about the other kinds of pony magic? She should have the natural talents of all three clans in equal measure. So, to test this hypothesis and to see how much she's changed, Twilight begins an experiment. She enlists the aid of Applejack and Rainbow Dash to provide the tests, and pulls in an unsuspecting Lyra to be the control group.

Let the experiment begin.

This story is a sequel to Past Sins

Touch, Smell, Taste, Hearing, Sight

This is the order the five senses develop in for foals as they rest, cradled in the warm safety of a mother’s womb. But for one, her womb was a thorn bush in the dark of night. For one, the safety and warmth that should have carried her into the world was replaced with pain and cold.

These are Nyx's first hours.

This story is a sequel to Into The Depths

The horrors of the catacombs have turned to distant memories for Celestia, Twilight, and Luna. Discord’s change of heart and Twilight’s coronation have helped to ease and erase the mental scars from that harrowing night. The three princesses can even smile and laugh as Nightmare Night moves into full swing.

Yet, it should never be forgotten that those who have been touched by Tirek are forever within his grasp.

There is a secret in Equestria. A secret the newly crowned Princess Twilight Sparkle doesn’t dare to believe. Like puppeteers pulling on marionettes, they have influenced Equestria for better and worse since the fall of Discord. So far they have been benevolent, but their potential for evil is vast. What’s worse, she doesn’t know their name. She doesn’t know their mission. All she knows for certain is one thing.

That they all seem to be zebra.
