    Predictions For the Rest of Season 5 (Also Updates)

    So it appears that leaked episode title list was legit. So, in the interest of fun, here's my guesses as to what each episode has in store.

    11.Party Pooped

    -Pinkie Pie episode, of course. Pinkie Pie parties a little too hard and ends up calling up some fellow party ponies (including Cheese Sandwich and Party Favor) to help out while she rests.

    12.Amending Fences

    -At a bit of a loss here. Amending implies a change in agreement. Perhaps a treaty of some kind?

    13.Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?

    - Luna nightmare episode! YEAH!

    14.Canterlot Boutique

    -Rarity expands her business to Canterlot... bringing her into direct competition with Hoity Toity!

    15.Scare-Master

    -Deliberate call-back to Season 1? I think so. Fluttershy episode where she finds out how fun it is to scare her friends but takes it too far.

    16.Rarity Investigates

    -Rarity... stick with me here... investigates something.

    17.Made in Manehattan

    -Coco Pommel returns! Other than that, no idea. The title reminds my wife of one of her favorite movies.

    18.Brotherhooves Social

    -YES! Shining Armor versus Big Macintosh! Steel Cage Match! BOOK IT!

    19.Crusaders of the Lost Mark

    -Raiders references are always appreciated. I think this sees the return of Starlight Glimmer as she starts snatching Cutie Marks in Ponyville. Diamond Tiara begs the CMC to find her mark.

    20.The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows

    -(Nervously looks over shoulder)

    21.Hearthbreakers

    -Please, let us have some kind of romantic subplot this season. Please please please.

    22.What About Discord?

    -What about him? This really perplexes me, since it feels like we JUST had this episode.

    23.The Hooffields and Mccolts

    -AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! You guys don't understand. I've been borderline obsessed with the Hatfield and McCoy feud for YEARS.

    24.The Mane Attraction

    - PLEASE ROMANTIC SUBPLOT. PLEASE.

    25.26.The Cutie Remark Part 1 and 2

    -Starlight Glimmer returns to enact her master plan... SOMETHING TO DO WITH CUTIE MARKS!

    How about ya'll? Got any thoughts or predictions?

    WEEKLY TRIVIA QUESTION

    Last Weeks's Answers: Pepperdance (because she was my first blind bag) and Bubble Burst (no idea). Name ideas story could be found in the 'Dear Scootaloo' Notes blog post.

    This Week's Question;

    Twilight Sparkle once hypothesized that every Alicorn had the potential for great good and great evil inside of them. Fail to conquer the evil, and the alicorn becomes something new.

    This week, name the four evil sides of the four alicorn princesses (each worth one point.) An additional half point if you determine the event that led to the shift to darkness.

    Looks Like We Made It...

    Another semester down. Finally two whole weeks to focus on writing.

    Episode Thoughts: A definite step down from last week. Nothing really of note.

    Just been a slow week.

    Back to Disney next week, so that's something.

    While Rainbow Dash went to war with Feather Duster in the skies above Ponyville, little Scootaloo was found by a pair of earth ponies who quickly grew attached to her. Who was this young couple? A bonus half point if you can tell me where their names came from.

    In Case You Were Wondering...

    Yes, 'Tanks for the Memories' very nearly killed me. Easily one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. Stellar writing, outstanding song... just aces top to bottom. And as you all know because of 'Saying Good-Bye,' I'm very emotional when it comes to pets.

    -Since 'For Ages and Ages More' is on a possible never-ending hold, how would you all feel if I posted the plot as a 'Failed Fic?'

    -'Dear Sweetie Belle' has CROSSED THE 10,000 VIEW MARK! WOOHOO!

    WEEKLY TRIVIA QUESTION

    Last Week's Answer: The Cakes ('Morning Glory: It Gets Better With Age') and Applejack/Rainbow Dash ('Can You Read My Mind?')

    This Week's Question;

    Few relationships in the Continuity are stronger than the sisterly bond between Applejack and Applebloom. From that tragic rainy night when the youngest daughter of Jack and Beatrice was born, Applejack has watched and protected her younger sister to the best of her abilities. She's watched her grow from a crazy little filly to a beautiful and dedicated young mare. Still, she never misses a chance to needle her with her childhood nickname.

    What is Applejack's term of affection for Applebloom again?

    Updates, Updates, We Love Updates...

    -Guess who has two papers to write in two weeks and that's why nothing's been posted? THIS GUY.

    -The next chapter of 'Changelings' ('Where the Heart Is') is fairly short, but has been surprisingly difficult to write. I hope the rest of the chapters involving events in Canterlot aren't so hard to complete. I've also decided to add a small tag at the end of the chapter to reintroduce a certain librarian (that will also pay tribute to one of my favorite films of all time, the 1988 remake of "the Blob.")

    -In my haste and zeal to complete 'Victory Lap,' I've realized that the... ahem, main event is really too long to be one chapter. So, there'll be two instead. The upcoming chapter will feature the Equestria Girls themselves while the second will feature the special guests.

    -Obviously I loved "Bloom and Gloom" for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was that it ended with the CMC in a shared dreamscape thanks to a certain Princess of the Night. (Singing: We're the DREAM WARRIORS, not gonna dream no more...)

    -There really is no feeling comparable to seeing your name in print...

    -How are you, my faithful friends and followers? Doing well?

    -To wrap things up, here's the first of a new tradition; a weekly trivia question. Post your answers below. Get ten right, and you win a prize.

    1. As they aged and began to figure out the intricacies of romance, the CMC naturally used the clubhouse as a hideaway for secret get-togethers with their special someponies. Scootaloo tried to get her Cutie Mark in, erm, procreation within those walls with young master Pipsqueak. It was in that forested fortress that Sweetie Belle learned how sweet a constant diet of candy made Peppermint Twist's kisses (though Sweetie Belle never did bring her beloved Button up that tree.) Even Applebloom said farewell to her fillyhood one hot summer night with the rambunctious Rumble in the tree-house she had personally restored.

    But they weren't the first...

    Your question, my followers, is this; which two couples were the first to use the CMC's headquarters as a love shack?

    The (Real) Announcement

    My April Fools gag this year fooled apparently no one. Ah well, I was bound to strike out at some point.

    I am not retiring from fanfiction. Yet.

    I've taken my three accepted stories as a sign that it's time to finally knuckle down and start writing my book. Starting May 15th, I'm setting aside one hour a day, every day, to work on my first fully original piece longer than 3000 words. My goal is to have a first draft, ready to show to publishers, done no later than Christmas.

    What does this mean for you?

    Not much. Right now.

    I'll be sticking to the Continuity (and the occasional sporadic one shot) from this point on. This sadly means that 'For Ages and Ages More' is on the shelf for the time being. 'Victory Lap' will still be finished (probably very soon) but as to 'Good Girls...' well, who knows.

    So there. Nothing earth-shaking, but still a pretty big development for me.

    Your continued support is always appreciated, my friends.

    (Returns to writing next chapter of 'Changelings.')

Collected here are the interviews and impressions of Jade Ring as he sought out the Bearers of the Elements of Harmony to gather their recollections of the day that Princess Luna rose to power.

Originally written in script format, I've restructured the story into a narrative that I hope still captures the essence of my original work. Additionally, new details have been added revealing the ultimate fate of certain charcters. I hope my readers will enjoy this revised look at one of my personal favorite works.

Something evil has found Ponyville. The town's children are disappearing, each disappearance preceded by a dream of an impossibly thin stallion.

When somepony she loves is the next to vanish, one young farmer must venture into the forest to find her. Once there, she will encounter an ancient force. It is powerful. It is terrifying.

It is hungry.

Amazing cover-art by the equally amazing Swirling Line. (She's also doing a stellar comic adaptation. Stay tuned!)

After an accident robs them of their parents, Rarity writes Sweetie Belle a letter laying bare a secret kept all the little unicorn's life.

"It's fascinating the level of depth this story takes. Just the part alone about why Rarity represents generosity is enough to bring tears to even the toughest critics. This is an amazing story in every way. Mature in some of its themes and true to life, yet not graphic or exploitive, 'Dear Sweetie Belle' is a must for My Little Pony fans who need a great, sad story to tide them over."
