    'Grogar 2' Release Schedule

    The Archives Will Soon Be Open

    So it's been (checks watch) about two weeks since I updated 'the Wicker Mare' and nine days until the launch of 'Grogar 2.' I'm hard at work, but things have been complicated.

    My rambunctious dog knocked a glass of tea onto my laptop, and despite my best efforts she seems to be down for the count. Thankfully, I've learned my lesson and started saving stuff onto an external. Nothing of value was lost this time.

    Here's where the cool part comes in.

    My friend informed me of a device they have in their possession that will allow me to take the hard-drives from my previous laptops and extract the text files. Suddenly, I have access to stories and outlines that might have been lost.

    There's stuff in there I never even told any of you about.

    Already I've stumbled on my very first MLP Fanfic Outline, the bedrock on which all of this is built. Expect to see that as a Failed Fic very soon.

    Most exciting is a short I banged out one night in the space of a few hours... the same night that particular laptop bit the dust.

    Folks, that story is the first one I wrote that explored the idea of Rarity being Sweetie Belle's mother.

    And it's a Christmas story.

    I'm going to give it another look-see when I get the chance, maybe update it a little (Crescendo didn't exist when I wrote it.) and then maybe publish it as an AU sequel to 'Dear Sweetie Belle.'

    This is all very exciting, but back to work.

    Krampusnacht draws near.

This story is a sequel to The Sin of Envy, or a Mother's Love

It is said that when a great sin is committed, the Devil comes calling. This time, the Devil has been drawn to Equestria and he calls himself Belial. The pure souls of the Equestrians are what he desires... but he is nothing if not a good sport.

He will give their heroes a chance to save them.

He offers the Mane 6 the chance to play a game. Each will be tested with a vision of the future. Some visions are truth. Some visions are lies.

If all see true, then Equestria is spared.

If even one fails... then all belongs to the King of Lies.

A pair of romantic vignettes about blossoming love, too short for publishing on their own but surprisingly sweet when put together.

In 'Just a Glimpse,' Flash Sentry will endure almost anything to see the princess he pines for, even if it's just the slightest glimpse.

In 'Suddenly, Spikey,' Spike tries to console Rarity after she gets stood up...again. Will his words finally make her see the light?

This story is a sequel to Morning Glory

Several sweet and romantic drabbles set on one snowy Hearth's Warming Eve in Ponyville.

-'I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,' in which Macintosh and Fluttershy spend their first Hearth's Warming as husband and wife stretched out by the fire. There seems to be something on Fluttershy's mind.

-'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' in which Applejack and Rainbow Dash find themselves snowed in at Fluttershy's old cottage with nothing but each other and a mysterious bottle for company.

-'Santa Baby,' in which Spike seeks to prove to Rarity that Santa Hooves is real... no matter what it takes.

-'I Believe in Santa Hooves,' in which one little filly gets a visit from the pony she misses the most.

Short and sweet, these tales are my gift to all who read my stories.
