    What Could Have Been

    Noctis?

    ...hm?

    Do you ever dream?

    But of course. 'tis a rather silly question to be asking of me, is it not?

    Well, you never know. Some do and some don't.

    You have a question related to the first, do you not?

    Eh, just curiosity, mostly. What kinds of things do you dream of?

    Being lorekeeper for the Vigil has exposed me to a wealth of knowledge. Such things have opened me to the infinite possibilities presented to one during each and every lifetime. I dream of what is, and what could have been, of threads of fate that shall never be realized -- the wheel from which they were spun has ceased to turn. I dream of what life may have been like had we embarked on some grand adventure, the likes of which had never been done before. Just you and I, traveling to places unvisited for centuries, as we raced against time to stop a traitor and monsters, and to save Lady Luna and her kingdom.

    That's... wow. More entertaining than my dreams, at least.

    What of yours then, Ferous?

    No real adventure like yours. Just peace and quiet. Lots of happy moments.

    Such as?

    Falling in love, buying a home, raising a family.

    Happy moments indeed. And who would such moments be shared with, hm?

    ...I think you know.

    Ah, but I do. And I shan't tell a soul.

    Attending Trotcon

    I'm breaking the silence (and my self-imposed exile) to announce that I will be at Trotcon in Columbus, Ohio, between June 20th and June 22nd. This is mostly so I can see friends again and to spend time with them, and not necessarily because of the pony fandom. Sorry.

    I'll either be attending as a helper, as I have several friends vending, or as a panelist. That's still up in the air.

    Fin

    As of today, I have decided to cease any and all work on any of my pony fics. Questions answered below:

    Why?

    -----

    Several reasons. I'm back in nursing school, struggling to figure out what I want to do with my life, I'm on the verge of moving (which is just next week), and there's a few other things. The biggest one, however, is this fandom and this site. This fandom is filled with some of the most ungrateful, misogynistic, and self-centered people I have ever encountered, and the fact that it continues (and will do so for quite a while) is equal parts sickening and depressing. Moreso, writing for the pony fandom is no longer enjoyable -- I can work on something, post it here, and it is instead drowned out by a plethora of poorly-written ship fics and crossovers, none of which have even the slightest bit of originality to them. The userbase on this site is immensely frustrating, tends to have very poor tastes in literature, and few of them have any understanding of storytelling mechanics. Unless something is explicitly explained to them, they simply won't get it, and having to explain myself repeatedly is aggravating.

    You don't really mean that, do you?

    -----

    I do. Every word of it. Don't get me wrong, I've made some amazing friends through the pony fandom, but by and large, it's filled with individuals I want nothing to do with. I'm done contributing when I'm not getting any satisfaction out of it. I'll still watch the show, still moderate the chatroom, and I'll still attend conventions (mostly because friends are vending and I'm there to support them), but no more writing. I have neither the time nor the energy for it.

    But I really liked your stories! Will you ever finish some of them?

    -----

    Maybe. Maybe not. That's for me to decide, and constantly harassing and begging me to come back will very likely do the opposite. Please respect my decision.

    Where will you be at?

    -----

    Around. I still mod the chatroom, and all my contact info is still in my bio.

    None of my fics will be deleted, including those that are incomplete.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Back

    I've actually been back from Bronycon, but I haven't been on the site much, mostly because my Ponyfiction Vault interview went up and all the comments were about the state I was from and not the actual story itself. SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTED THERE, FIMFIC.

    Also hi new watchers, I'll do more stuff eventually.

After a thousand years, Luna finds herself finally freed from the form of Night Mare Moon - the ordeal has left her weakened, though, and she is ordered to spend the next year regaining her strength and getting herself up to speed on what has transpired during her thousand-year absence. Finding ways to spend that time? That... might be troublesome.

The July chapter is still a work in progress, and I'm gradually adding more and more to it. By no means is it finished.

Keep that in mind when reviewing and commenting. :twilightsmile:

#2 · 158w, 2d ago · · · July ·

Promising. I'll keep an eye on this and see where you take it.

#3 · 158w, 2d ago · · · July ·

Appreciate it. It's surprisingly difficult to come up with things a Princess could do for an entire year - still, I have some things in mind.

#5 · 158w, 1d ago · · 1 · August ·

lol

#6 · 158w, 1d ago · · · September ·

September chapter is up, though more will be added to it.

I'm actually very glad that I picked this time line for the fic. I get to cover Luna's physical changes between season 1 and season 2 (the darker coat and changed mane, among other things), as well as where she got the now-famous Royal Canterlot Voice.

Hope you enjoy my interpretation of things.

#7 · 158w, 1d ago · · · September ·

fantastic

#8 · 158w, 1d ago · · · September ·

Luna is so adorable :heart:

#9 · 158w, 1d ago · · · September ·

>>30438

Well duh, Luna is best pony! :twilightsmile:

In all seriousness, though, her lack of appearances in the show gives her a lot of potential growth. She makes for a very fun and thought-provoking writing subject, and it's not often that we get to see the relationship play out between her and Celestia.

#10 · 158w, 9h ago · · · September ·

Troll reviews are fun. I'm still above a 4, at least.

Currently working on the October chapter. It'll either go up later today or tomorrow.

#11 · 158w, 4h ago · · · July ·

so now luna tries to find twilight XD

#12 · 158w, 4h ago · · · October ·

>>31194

For the most part, yes. I eventually plan on having Luna finding out her mystery mare's identity (we already know it to be Twilight, of course), and from there, the two of them will write back and forth.

Girl's gotta stay in Canterlot, of course.

#13 · 158w, 1h ago · · · August ·

im liking this fic off to the next chapter

#14 · 157w, 5d ago · · · November ·

The December chapter is nearing completion, and should go up later today. It'll certainly be the biggest chapter to date.

#15 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

Latest chapter is now up. I'm curious to see if anyone will be able to figure out why I chose that specific date for Luna's birthday.

#16 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

YAY for happy Luna!

#17 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

Hmm... My guess?

December 21, 1968 was the date launch date of Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, carrying  the first humans to leave earth's gravity.

#18 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

shortest day of the year/longest night

#19 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

"Oh my goodness. Luna, your mane... it's full of stars." -2001 references are always welcome.

#20 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

I just have to say that might first thought on reading Chapter 7 was 'Yes Luna. It has a flavor.'

Other than that I'd guess you picked December 21st as Luna's birthday because it's the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Or to put it another way, the longest night.

#21 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

It's the Winter Solstice!

#22 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

>>32654

>>32716

>>32750

And everyone gets a cookie. Yes, I picked the 21st because it's the winter solstice. I'm aware it switches between the 21st and the 22nd, but December 22nd is my own birthday - to pick that felt slightly... narcissistic of me. So the 21st won out.

>>32672

Glad someone picked up on that. Considering how adorkable Luna can be, I just had to fit in a 2001: A Space Odyssey reference somewhere.

#23 · 157w, 5d ago · · · December ·

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

#24 · 157w, 4d ago · · · December ·

This is one of the most heartwarming things I have had the pleasure of reading. I look forward to the remainder of it.

#25 · 157w, 4d ago · · · December ·

>>33091

Thank you for the comment. The relationship between Celestia and Luna doesn't get much attention, nor do we ever get to really see what they do in Canterlot on a daily basis. I tried to make up for both of those.

#26 · 157w, 4d ago · · · December ·

January chapter will most likely be delayed until tomorrow. Currently behind on my school work, and then I'm going out with the lady friend.

Apologies if you were looking forward to a new chapter today. :twilightsheepish:

Woot, 5000 views. Thanks for reading, everyone!

February chapter is being written as we speak. If you thought Luna's love-letter troubles were over, think again.

#32 · 157w, 2d ago · · · February ·

Another good chapter, a little short and I felt a lack of character in Luna this time around.

Luna is what makes this story great, so her character is the greatest importance.

It was good, but not great.

#33 · 157w, 2d ago · · · February ·

>>34945

Had to delete my previous comment because there's no edit option.

I understand if you felt Luna was a bit lacking in character in this latest chapter. The story is predominantly about her, but I do try and expand it a bit so some other characters get some time (such as Celestia).

I'll try to compensate over the next few chapters, however. Thanks for the comment.

#34 · 157w, 2d ago · · · February ·

Come on! Post you meanings, this story deserves discussion!

What was good? What was bad? What was AWESOME?

#35 · 157w, 2d ago · · · February ·

love it

#36 · 157w, 2d ago · · · July ·

you have my attention.  I hope you have somewhere good to go here.

#37 · 157w, 2d ago · · · February ·

March is finished already, but I'll be saving it for tomorrow afternoon. Hope none of you will mind the wait. :trollestia:

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

#39 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

March is now up. A small disclaimer: I take no credit at all for the second meaning of the prophecy. It was a comment I saw on the PMV "The Stars Will Aid In Her Escape (Cosmic Love)", and was a pretty big mind=blown moment for myself as well. I simply had to fit it in somewhere.

Definitely check that PMV out, by the way. Amazing stuff.

#40 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

Made it into the featured box! Thanks to everyone who has read, reviewed, and commented thus far. Couldn't have done it without you all! :twilightsmile:

#41 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

Congratulations on being featured! You've definitely earned it. I've enjoyed everything up till now and can't wait to see how the last two months go.

#42 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

Good chapter, better than the last!

Anyway, I guess it is over now, atleast the main "arc" of the story. Unless you have something up your sleeve...

I am waiting and hoping for more.

#43 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

>>35678

This lack of an edit button is killing me. The meaning behind the dreams was a big part, but by no means was it the entirety of the story. This is about what Luna does during her recovery period, not about what her dreams mean. Still have three chapters (and the epilogue) to go!

I'm not trying to go "OMG YOU'RE WRONG", I'm simply saying there's more to the story than just that. Rest assured, I have some things planned.

#44 · 157w, 1d ago · · · October ·

WOOL reference. I freaken' love it.

#45 · 157w, 1d ago · · · March ·

>>35785

Went back and read over chapter 5 again. As much as I love the WOOL video, I never intended for there to be any references to it. I can see why you might think that, though. :twilightsheepish:
