    Dat Halloween Fic, Do

    Just a short update.  Kite is still on the backburner for the moment as I work on that earlier-mentioned Halloween fic.  I haven't forgotten about you guys, I promise!  This is more of a teaser to whet your appetite for when you do finally get to find out what happens to Best Bookpony.

    It's coming along nicely.  I'm five chapters in, and the story is falling into my lap as a write it.  This one's been on my mind for a while now, so it's no wonder why.

    I'm hoping to enter it into EqD's Halloween fic contest whenever the info for that rolls around.  I don't know if it'll be anonymous or anything, but I'll keep details under wraps just in case.  All I can say is my writing style for this one is nowhere near my usual.  It's far more dynamic and exploratory.  And that's for the better; I absolutely love how my characters are shining through, much more so than in my other stories.  It's kinda mainstay of authors to say it, but this really is turning out to be my best story yet, both in terms of writing and actual plot development.  (Can you tell I'm excited?  That's definitely a good thing!) If you think Kite so far is a trip down Screwball Lane, this one will have you strumming your lips cross eyed.

    The only asterisk is it'll have some gore to it, which I know some people are averse to.  Those that like gore will be happily satisfied; those that don't shouldn't feel overwhelmed, but you'll want to lock away your jimmies just in case if you happen to read it.

    Lastly, if I can find the inspiration to churn it out in time, I have a merrier one-shot idea in my head, also for Halloween, also under wraps for write-off's sake.  We'll see what the future brings.  Hopefully lots of inspiration and colorful ponies.  Especially the latter.

    EDIT: If you hear hide or tail of said EqD write-off, please tell me.  I'm always late when it comes to news posts and what not.

    Quick Break

    Sorry to those of you following Kite, but I just wanted to let you guys know I'm going on a short hiatus from the story.  (Additional sorries for doing so right after a big cliffhanger (I'm good at doing that, my veteran readers will be more than ready to say).)  It's nothing to do with being burnt out, rather I just have other fics I want to pump out sooner rather than later—specifically two stories in my head I'd like to finish for Halloween, and it's smart to start getting things laid out now.  You might call Kite suitably creepy for the season, but I assure you it's nothing compared to these!  Just sit tight!

    Chapter Five

    This roller coaster we call Kite has been climbing for some time now and has finally reached the peak.  Are you ready for the dive?

This was soo cute!

I love reading stories when Dash is showing her softer side,  this was so romantic.

#14 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Can we have a link to the cover art please?

#15 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

When you act but to aid the poor pony in need,

And give your own wishes not a glimmer of heed

'Tis then that you prove to be true friend indeed. :rainbowlaugh:

Good Tale. Good Tale Indeed. :twilightsmile:

D'aaaaw! That was so cute!!! I Loved it!

#18 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

That was an amazing story. I loved all of the little interruptions where you showed Dash having a hard time with some words. I'm tracking this and watching you. Keep up the great work. :ajsmug:

#19 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

This was really good. I liked it a lot. 5/5

#21 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

I'm reading this just to see what a freak reading accident entails.

Let's just hope that unlike Transcendence this does not make me want to punch a pony in a sensitive area.

#22 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Dotor Seus + Zecora = this story.

When it was done with the rhyming part I had trouble reverting to regular reading.

holy wow


#26 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

A fantastic read to be had by all.

Cuteness and sincerity, ne'er taking the fall.

Dash's loyalty so big and bright.

Shining a beacon through Sparkles dark night.

#27 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·


No story is ever perfect. And it should be left at that. :coolphoto: :rainbowdetermined2:

#28 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

This was both fun and sweet. The thing I loved the most about it was the parts where you could see Rainbow Dash struggling with certain words, either questioning them to Twilight or sometimes trying to get past them herself. She is still new to reading after all, and though she loves it, she does make her mistakes.

#29 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Lol, "Take a Look. It's in a book. The Reading Rainbow. Reading Rainbow!"

:Edit: Le gasp! A downvote!

A very cute story, exactly the kinda thing that came to mind when I first D'Awwwwwwd at this pic on DVA. :heart:

#32 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

A heartwarming read if I ever had one. Love it!

#33 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

First  I see the picture on deviantart, and go d'awwww. Now I see the story for that picture.


:rainbowderp: Simply amazing.

#34 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

And now I can't help but to think

That these rhymes have started to sink

Deep within my mind;

I can't leave them behind.

Thumbs up before you even blink.

...okay, I know that's a limerick, not couplets...

#35 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Thank you...  Thank you so much.  For the past hour I have been extremely sad :fluttercry: I got on here to check if my story had been commentated on and saw this in the featured section.  I read it, and now I am happy again.  Thank you so much sir or madam, I really appreciate what you have done for me tonight, even though you don't know me, and (most likely) didn't mean to actually affect someone's feelings, you have affected mine in a good way with this story.  So once again, thanks, a lot.  :heart:

#36 · 139w, 1d ago · 1 · · Reading Rainbow ·


I actually like this. I can't find anything wrong.

For making me disagree with my own morals and beliefs, five stars and a giant 'fuck you.'

#37 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Well, let me just click on that grey star up there... yup, it's yellow now.  Excellent.

Oh and that Thumbs Up too,

Allow me to give one of them to you.

I'm a little upset that this story must end,

Could be a great ship or a tale of best friends.

Yeah, I'm gonna stop with the poetry there, but yeah.  It's just cute, and the fact that the book she read was about a couple makes it feel like this could continue as a ship, and I REALLY wish it would.  It's just beautiful.  :pinkiesmile:

#38 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Is the poem/story Rainbow Dash reading a real thing?  I must know.

#39 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

I don't even.  great work.:moustache:

#41 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·





Now for my opinion on the story;

Very cute! :heart: 100% going up there as one of my favorites.

#42 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

If you write more I Pinkie Pie Promise not to make you into a cupcake :pinkiehappy:

#43 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

This story was awesome, this much is true,

I did not expect, on starting, this brilliance to view,

The premise was good, the sentiment sweet,

And your expert rhyming made it complete,

A request for you, if I may -

Please, more of this ilk, send my way

#44 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Very well done.

#45 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

This was awesome! Well done sir!

#46 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Aww, that was sweet. Out of curiosity, was that tale-in-rhyme an original invention, or a ponified version of something else?

#47 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Absolutely adorable, and totally heartwarming. I love this kind of stuff. :twilightsmile: My brain tripped over the meter in the story Dash was reading a few times, but it's possible I was just misinterpreting where the emphasis was supposed to be. I thought you wrote Dash absolutely perfectly - brash, willful and above all, loyal. The trouble she had with a few of the rarer words was funny, and realistic. Not too many of them, she's hardly uneducated, just enough to betray that she hasn't spent a lot of her time reading. So yeah, congratulations on fitting two cute and fun stories into one, that's a neat trick. Definitely deserves its share of time in the feature box.

#48 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·


Been that way for a good 4 hours, luls.


Completely original, though I'd have to say that Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Julia Donaldson naturally lent inspiration.

#49 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

Short and sweet.

#50 · 139w, 1d ago · · · Reading Rainbow ·

I've got to comment on this, for sharing such a cute and wonderful story. Definitely one of the better Slice of Life stories that I've read.

Loved the story within a story. Very Mother Goose and Doctor Seuss esque. Rainbow Dash's interruptions and her sounding out some of the words were also awfully funny. Wonder if she'll pick up books that aren't just Daring Do, now.

And I see Twilight got Smarty Pants back from Big Mac. Adorable comes to mind.

Great work! It brightened my day!
