    Status Update: I'm Back (Even Though I Never Really Left).

    Hello there my loyal followers. It's Samaru again, and as you've all probably noticed, I haven't been doing any updates over these last few months.

    It's been a collection of multiple events all coming together on me. On the side of school, my exams are coming up soon, so I've had to dedicate a lot of free time to working on them and my final projects for classes without exams. Then there was the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which I've invested some time into. What other time I've had has been divided among reading stories on FIMFiction and socializing with friends.

    So... yeah, I haven't really done much work on Northern Lights.

    That's not to say I haven't tried to. As of right now there are about 1300 words in the recent document, and I know how the chapter is going to flow and be structured. But at the same time I've been going over another little re-write to try and take into consideration the comments I've been getting on chapters nine and ten.

    I know a lot of people haven't been pleased by how I wrote the princesses in those scenes, and I understand why. I'm a novice writer and I botched their characterization. But I don't think it's too big of a problem. There is still some time to fix it, which I have been mulling over in my spare time. I'm not going to completely alter the story, since this is still part of my plan, but I at least have a general idea of how to pick myself back up.

    As per the usual, I'm not going to give a release date for the next chapter, because I don't know when that will be. I'm just going to keep trying to write whenever I get the chance. Hopefully once my exams are over I'll have more free time, but that will also be into the Christmas season. So, I'm sorry to say, you'll all have to be patient a little wile longer.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    New Chapter Up

    Because of Knighty's recent post about the update system being buggy, I decided to make this blog-post to inform you all about the new chapter of Northern Lights. So... go read it if you'd like. If not, that's OK.

    On the plus side, this one didn't take me three months to make.

    Wow...

    Northern Lights made it into the feature box with the release of chapter nine.... I... wow. I don't even know what to say. I never thought that a story of mine would make it to the box since Morphing is Magic — and that was a collaboration with Tricondon... wow... does this mean I'm going to have more pressure on me to keep the story "good?"

    Sorry if you were expecting something more in this blog... I'm just in so much shock I don't know what to say...

    Status Update... Some... Number...

    Hello all my loyal subjects. I have some good news; chapter nine of Northern Lights is officially written. Once I get a look over from my faithful editor NaughSaught, it'll be ready for publication. At present it's just over 6200 words, but I expect that number to change once the editing process is complete.

    Once again, I want to apologize for making you all wait. I've been going through a lot of emotional trouble in real life, but I'm still trying to commit at least ten minutes each night to writing. Most of the times I only got maybe a paragraph done, and other days I had to edit what I had because I couldn't think of how to write out my thoughts.

    With that said, expect the next chapter up within the next few days. Unless of course I cannot find NaughtSaught, in witch case I might have to spend a few weeks looking for a new editor.

While welcoming some new ponies to Ponyville, the main six and spike are challenged to a scavenger hunt. They all accept, but who said it had to take place in town, or even Equestria? As soon as the sealing words were said, they were whisped away, to a land of seven tribes and a great evil. A land once known as the Land of Dragons.

NOTE: My Little Pony is property of Hasbro and everything else belongs to Emily Rodda. If you have not read the Deltora books, don't worry this won't contain any major spoilers. This will include elements form all the books, including the companion ones.

If you have any criticism or ways I can improve, please tell me.

OMG...Deltora quest. this is awesome.

Interesting.... I read Quest Shadowlands and Dragons so.... favoriting....

Wow, I had forgotten about these books. Never expected to find something envolving them here. Now before I read this I need to re-read all the books.

>>477705 Really I never expected to find this many people who read them here.:twilightsheepish:

You got yourself a favourite:pinkiehappy:.

Its been years since i read those books and i don't remember anything past the first series.....stupid memory.....still, you make me wan't to read them all over again. Or, if the anime people have done the rest and MADMAN has dubbed them, watch them:pinkiehappy:!

I'll be waiting for the next chapter. Keep the awesome coming!!

Honestly was not expecting this crossover.....like ever.

Consider it read.

>>492507 As much as I like the anime, I'd say read the books again.:twilightsmile:

>>492511 Which is exactly why I made it.:pinkiehappy:

True, nothing like a good book.

>>493606 Wasn't there only a Deltora "Quest" anime? I did think it was well made though considering the plot.

>>496675 It was a faithful adaptation of the books, but in my opinion they could have made it a lot better.

ooh... right I forgot the Forest of Silence turned people into trees.

#12 · 135w, 1d ago · · · The Spring ·

>>501912 Wrong location.:fluttershysad:

>>502377 Right it's been what 5 years since I last read any of them and the anime could've been a lot better. especially if they had continued it into the other books.

i don't know what to say...

I'm not good at nit picking....

Well for starters I think a cold opening would be better, with Applejack already searching for her hat. you could lay down her situation while that's underway.

The sequence of actions and movement within a setting should be fluid and seem natural. You have to think about how you would experience or see it as if you were there.

[

Lost in a strange land and hunted by hairless apes in dreads, Applejack searched for her favorite hat. It was slightly chilly and vicious gusts kept whipping small debris. This wasn't one of her best mornings.“Could this day get any worse?”

In immediate response, a pebble the size of a bit zoom up and hit her square between the eyes.  “Ah just had t’ ask...”

After taking a moment for the spots to disappear from her eyes, AJ went back to searching for her hat.

After a minute or so, she discovered it lodged between two stones sloping into a rocky outcropping. Braving the uneven terrain she carefully pulled it out and flipped it onto her head...

]

yeah....there you go.. you have to work movement and descriptions like that.

then again, that's my habitual writing style so it's not flawless in any way.

>>509591 I see what you mean.

Also, which character do you want to see next?

>>478137 I've seen the anime and read the books, now this? I'm excited.

>>509707 I say Rainbow Dash.

I think twilight was the best you could start of with. some kind of order of the scenes should be set up.

OH I remember tha masked ones! they were in dragons and they have those enchanted masks that don't come off it almost tore Lief's face off right?

>>515658 And then the toes.

What just happened?

I used to read the Deltora Quest series way back when in like, 4th and 5th grade :P

>>548156: Right back at you.:moustache:

>>554077 I keep running out of chapters:fluttercry:

>>554517 I try to make it daily, but complications keep arising.:applecry:

I envy your writing speed.

>>560017 Speed is nothing, quality is all that matters.

>>560042 pff...well at the speed I put out work my quality doesn't make up for it.

>>544167

I think Deltora quest came first...and its directed at younger readers.
