    Halloween Story

    So, ladies and germs, a fine night of fright approaches us all.

    Unfortunately, the special story we'd intended to be ready for this - "Twilight's Treecastle of Terror." - a trio of sexy, scary, disturbing short stories featuring our favorite ponies thrown into frightening what-ifs, is not going to be done in time. Unfortunately, our plans for getting it done were undermined by illness and real life bullshittery.

    The first of these short stories, however, is done. So, I am going to ask you, my beloved readers, if you would like us to release this first story as its own stand-alone short, and plan to release "Treecastle of Terror" at a later date with the other two proposed tales (And perhaps a few more.)  Since I am going to soon need to put more work into Magnificent 7 and, with NaNoWriMo about to kick off, my proposed project for the month-long event.

    State of the Author Update - October

    Merry all hallows, everyone!

    Yeah, It's been a while since the last one of these, but... well, School is hard, okay?

    So yeah, the reason for my (and Inky's) recent silence has been the specter of school and homework hovering over our lives like Zuul. Unfortunately, neither of us is the Keymaster and so we are forced to fight this all-encompassing infestation of ghoulish boredom with sullen and uncompromising bashing of our heads against the homework. Ahem.

    With that being said, stuff is settling down enough for me to send up a flare and let everyone know what we're up to over here, and give you guys some information on stuff to come. First up, lets handle the elephant in the room.

    The stuff we're writing.

    This has been a big hanging shame over my head these past three months, especially given how much I love to write and how prolific I was this time last year. I blame all of this on my current classes being both boring and time consuming, but what are you going to do?

    Regardless, Inky's ability to write at this present moment is actually pretty limited. He's doing what he can, and we appreciate him, but right now Nuke School takes priority. This also means I myself am greatly slowed as I am forced to go hunting for editors and assistants in keeping me on task. Fortunately, that's getting a bit easier.

    Right now, I'm primarily shooting to publish the first chapter of The Great and Magnificent 7 at some point this weekend, with an undetermined update schedule. (Possibly every two days? We'll see if the momentum I have keeps going.)  With a brand new major project, The Avatar's Call scheduled to follow it starting in November at some point.

    But between now and then, I'm going to be doing some short, fruity and fun stuff in order to help me get back into the mojo groove of writing. Prominent amongst these will be at least one small Codeverse story to whet the appetites of my loyal readers as I gird my loins and prepare for one of two major releases before the end of this year.

    The news of which leads me into my next question....

    Important Stuff regarding The Codeverse

    Firstly, I'd like to thank all of my followers for being patient with me during this quiet period and especially as this year has been a deal less productive than last year. Fortunately, I'm hoping to fix that.

    As some of you probably remember, I made an ill-conceived attempt at making some cash off of my fanfiction musings that basically crashed, burned, and went nowhere. However, from the ashes of that attempt I have been spurred to finally stop beating around the bush and confront the demon that I have so assiduously stayed away from until now. The concept of publishing original fiction.

    Of all of my creations so far, only The Code's Apprentice and its constituent world building and concepts speak strongly enough to me to actually make an outright original series out of. First off, I think a female-centric adventure series could be a major draw, especially as I would work hard to avoid a lot of the teen-angst / Twilight-esque drama that simply does not represent my own creative views. Secondly, the Codeverse as a concept has a lot of rich potential to be exploited that I simply cannot do in the environment of an MLP fanfiction.  So like so many other authors before me, I have already begun to file off the serial numbers in the hopes of launching an original fiction series, with the first book tentatively titled "Student of The Code" which will be the origin story of (tentatively named main protaganist) Lillian Lorne and the discovery of her ability to manipulate the world around her through the mysterious power of The Code of Harmony.

    So what does this mean for my Codeverse stories on here? Well....

    That's where things get complicated.

    Serious Talk: I absolutely want to write The Code of Dissonance. If for no other reason than to deliver on the promises of Queen Twilight's interactions with Dissonance's power, the conflict between the hidden hooves of the Solar Crusade and the new forces of social equality in Equestria, and how the corruptive nature of power will cause a great many interesting things to happen. With that being said, I need to be very honest with myself. Above everything else, I want to write for a living. Since no market apparently exists to support the creation of fan works in terms of fiction (As opposed to fan works in terms of visual art, but whatever. I'm not going to dwell on that.) I need to break in to original fiction and start taking my chances there.

    That means I'm going to need to devote writing time that previously would have been tapped for Ponyfiction and ideas that previously would have been tapped for these stories as well. That means that Code of Dissonance becomes a much harder project to devote my time to as I want to avoid internal confusion until I establish the fundamental differences between my Original Code stories and MLP code stories.

    I believe it is important to deliver the best possible product and experience to my readers. So at this time, I am forced to make a difficult decision about how I will proceed with my writing. That decision goes like this.

    Code of Dissonance will be written, regardless. I want to make that utterly clear, I am GOING TO WRITE THAT STORY. I promised a sequel, a sequel is coming. However, it may be a while before I am ready and prepared to write that sequel. How long is a while? I cannot say for certain. If Student of the Code is published and does well, It will probably be a lot sooner rather than later but that's crossing bridges that haven't even been built yet.

    I would like to stress that I'm not in danger of becoming homeless or computer-less, but my budget is what you would call tighter than a corset. I have almost no wiggle room in my monthly expenditures. I have no fun money and a very small 'disaster' fund. Until these things improve, I am going to have to pursue naked commercial ventures over passion projects. I hate this, but this is life right now. IF anyone out there has any suggestions or ideas on how I can improve this situation (I already have a job and no, I'm not getting a second job.) feel free to sound off in the comments.

    Those are the two big things which have been clogging up my brain lately. If anyone out there has questions about what we've been up to or what we might be up to in the near future, please feel free to speak up! I'll be making another blog post in the near future to muse on some story-related things, so keep an eye out for that.

    Thank you all for your readership, and I remain ever humbly yours,

    Lapis-Lazuli

They say you can’t miss what you’ve never had. And Scootaloo would be inclined to agree with them. Except, she did have all a little filly would want from a home, and she does miss what she lost.  Not that anypony would help her get it back.

Would they?

Amazingly well done!

-adds to favorites and select stories folder-

I like this, it's a Scootaorphan fic that's not entirely heartbreaking and it doesn't involve Rainbow Dash finding out. It's Applejack, certainly a fresh take. :ajsmug:

The originality on this just jumped up at least 10 levels. :scootangel:

Picturing Rainbow after that conversation is breaking my heart.

Damn it all to hell.

Got near the end then Home by Phillip Phillips comes on, now the tears won't stop! Bravo!

I like it but why is it in big macs stories group?

Oh sweet Celestia, it's so beautiful!!! :raritycry::fluttercry: I love it so much!!! Way to go, Scoots Apple!!!

I've been searching for a story of this nature since I first got here. The idea of Scootaloo living with Applejack and her family has a natural feel to it, much like the description of the Apple family home itself feels. It's just...

Dude thanks for making this awesome story!

I just had a weird thought: If Scootaloo actually falls for either Sweetie Belle or Applebloom does that count as incest despite the fact that they are related through adoption?

>>3557189 I know right. Poor Dashie, she can be a sort of sister to Scoots but can't help her any more than that. She must feel awful.:raritydespair:

Yeah, very good. Im liking this idea :twilightsmile:

Really enjoying this so far!  It's an interesting change of pace from most of the fics pertaining to Scootaloo's home or lack thereof, and I'm curious to see what the dynamics between Scoots and the Apples are going to be like.  The fact that she's a thief is also intriguing to me; I've never read a fic operating on that presumption before, though I'd hardly deny that it makes a certain kind of a sense.

Other than that: I thought everyone was really well-written, with plenty of feels to go about and many more plainly looming on the horizon.  Definitely looking forward to the next chapters!  :scootangel:

This. Is. Absolutely. BRILLIANT!!! :twilightsmile:

That really depends on the country we're talking about and the formulation of the law.

In some countries it's still formulated because of religious bias or explained by the genetical problems that can occur with the offsprings. Then it's mostly just genetical relatives. However both explanations can't hold up human rights legislation, since both can't be used as a legitimate reason to restrict the freedom of an individual. After all, people with genetic disorders are also still allowed to reproduce.

In other countries the ban of incest is explained by moral standards of the society and the protection of the family unit (still a religious influence). Here the ban of incest it's mostly explained with that incestuous relationships are a huge strain on the other family members and therefore split up the family. This devalues the importance of families in the country and will lower overall morality of the society. Also bullshit if you ask me, but no even the European Court of Justice hast the guts to at least look at the matter despite open cases. Anyway. With this explanation it doesn't matter if adopted or not, it's forbidden.

I'm gonna stick around for this story. :eeyup:

those are some small fucking heads

How do you scrape off a bruise? I mean, you can scrape off scabs or bandaids or your skin. But since a bruise is basically blood that has pooled under the skin, I don't think you can scrape out a bruise without just cutting a huge gash into your skin.

>>3557465

Maybe he plays an important role later on?

Wow, this is an extremely well done story. I'm really enjoying this!:pinkiehappy:

"Welcome home, Scootaloo Apple."

Ok i genuinely got misty eyes there.

>>3558024

As they aren't related it's totally okay.

I really like it. I don't another way to put.

>>3558550

Think of bruises in terms of apples instead of skin. :raritywink:

This story is so awesome.

Man, this is so sad I told myself I wasn't going to cry :raritydespair: I can't do it! :raritycry: This story is just so sad! Bravo good sir, Bravo :raritydespair:

awesome DT  finaly got wut she deserved

>>3559874>>3560190>>3560190>>3560300

Keep signal boosting guys! Keep the hits rolling in!

And thanks for commenting! :D

>>3560284 Yup. She said things no filly at her age should be saying, and she crossed the line. :trixieshiftleft:

YES! YEEEEEEEES!

IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Well damn. Things are definitely heating up now.

“So you like living on a mud-filled, yucky farm with stupid earth ponies.

Did she forget she's an earth pony as well?

Plus Big Mac is the best brother ever, sorry Shining but he's got you beat.

>>3560499 No one has ever accused Diamond Tiara of excessive self awareness.

Diamond Tiara is channeling her inner Draco Malfoy I see. :O

I think that people tend to go a bit overboard with Diamond's evilness sometimes. But from what we've seen so far, she seems far from stupid, so I can't see her making those kind of remarks in the middle of a classroom.

Nevertheless, still curious where you will go next with this.

I've read a lot of scootadoption stories in my time on FIMfiction. This is in the top five, if not the best one, I've read.
