    New Fics & More Updates


    The Unknown Writer is back, giving you a recap of what's behind what me and Joe Amethyst write. No spoilers, but a few announcements I'd like to make!

    New Fics

    Yes, indeed, new fics! New fics in development!

    Right now, I have four planned, all unrelated to each other

    - A story set in an alternate universe and WAY back in time to the time when six families that are the ancestors to six rather notable females compete for power in a long saga that is based on Roman History from 80 - 32 B.C. Keep an eye out for these families and learn a bit of Latin. Most of the names, if not all, are in Latin, including city names and family names. A reader's guide will be provided to help translations and so you know who's who and what's what, and it will be updated as the story progresses.

    - Changelings! Yes changelings, and smarter changelings. A story where a more well-thought out plan is put in motion by Chrysalis and her changeling army as the Royal Couple prepare to get married. Yes, alternate universe once again. Canterlot will never be the same!

    - Brace Yourselves! Twilight and Spike get stranded in the valley of the north mountains...and where its freezing. Snow, ice, and rock. That's all there is. Nature at its harshest. A story how a practical joke can get deadly, especially when it causes your two best friends to have to fight for survival, and a story of how companionship is necessary for survival.

    - ...and the long awaited LUNAR DAWN sequel! Story is not based on anything, its made originally by me, and it promises to entertain.

    Set mere months after the conclusion of Lunar Dawn, the war draws to a close, the Lunars having enough, and the Solar counter-attack slowed at the border, causing an unnecessary stalemate. Luna folds and agrees to the formation of a treaty and ceasefire, and delegates from both sides will meet in a neutral town to discuss.

    But then all plans go to tatters when during the ceasefire, Lunar forces behind the border come under attack...but its not from the Solars. Someone else has taken the field...and these forces have only self-interest in mind

    Who is this new enemy?

    Who will come to the aid?

    Will the Lunars and Solars cooperate?

    What of Pinkie and the surviving CMC?

    Answers will come...but there are three during this crisis. Three people, with different goals

    One wants to clear their name

    One wants to ease their conscience

    One wants to make their enemies suffer

    All three will come together in this time of war...but who are they?

    Time will tell...

    Revisions to previous statements:

    With the success of Lunar Dawn and Sunset, and my devotion to writing Red Light City with Joe Amethyst, here's the analysis:

    - There's only one more in the Sunset universe of fics. It's in development

    - Red Light City is consuming much of my time  (  )

    So be on the lookout for those. I'll also probably drop a few short stories here and there, set in various universes, alternat or canon

    Idea becomes Four-Parter

    The idea for the MLP/Red Dawn crossover has mutated into an idea for a four-part series at which Lunar Dawn (the original concept) will be a part of.

    The series will all surround an alternate history Equestria at which Nightmare Moon, who spent the thousand years seething and growing in power, is able to resist the Elements of Harmony back in the beginning of SE1, and Celestia intervenes. Though Nightmare Moon is reverted, the Elements are practically destroyed as a result and Luna is not offered at first (nor accepts later) Celestia's offer to rule with here. Later, Equestria divides itself into two kingdoms: A Solar Empire, Ruled by Celestia, and a Lunar Empire, ruled by Luna. However, in the five-year gap between the setting of most stories, both sides start stockpiling new weapons in case one decides to attack the other, and eventually, Luna makes the first move. The stage is set for conflict.

    All four fics are currently in development

    The Fics in order of release are:

    Warning: Potential Spoilers ahead!

    Sunset- composed in two parts (though released as one), Sunset is the story immediately before the events of Lunar Dawn. It stars Celestia as (in the first part), she remembers her moment of defeat and shame five years ago at the hands of her own people and Luna, and the origins of both the Solar and Lunar Empires. The second part is in the present time of the story, and deals with some unexpected news...

    Lunar Dawn- The Mane 6 and the CMC (a bit older, but not much), team up in a Red Dawn style to combat the invaders of their land, and learn that their friendship is now not just magic: its necessary for survival.

    Wings over Equestria- Soarin' oriented fic that deals with the events during the five-year gap and also, the dawn of the invasion. The fic also goes into detail on the development of most of the advanced technology seen in Lunar Dawn (gotta explain how they go from swords to guns in five years). Expect some Spitfire too...



    This fic deals with Shining Armor, and his background as a result of this whole situation is discussed in the beginning.

    In this universe, he does marry Cadance, but a year or so after the marriage (two to one years before the invasion), Cadance is killed tragically in an insurrection of pro-Lunar fanatics in the Solar Empire.This breeds a hate for all Lunars in Shining Armor, and after news is brought about his sister, he goes rogue in a personal war against Luna. At the same time, the war's been dragging for months, so Luna and Celestia are considering a peace treaty at a summit in Canterlot. However, Shining Armor's war will not end so easily...

    My first fic for the site in the works

    0 comments · 101 views
  • ...

Five years have passed since the division of Equestria, yet it seemed like eternity. After being forced to divide the lands  with her sister after an uprising all those years ago, Celestia hoped that one day, the states would reunite. However, things have turned to the worst.

In the town of Ponyville, nine rather notable friends find that a new kind of war was coming to Equestria, and in their own hometown. When invasion starts, they escape their town, in hopes of finding refuge outside in the wilderness. Now, with tasked to survive after their escape, the Mane 6 and the CMC learn that their friendship was not just magic now: it's necessary for survival. With the Lunars tyranically ruling their town, the nine also must fight off these new invaders, and drive them back to where they came.

Inspired by the 1984 war film, "Red Dawn", "Lunar Dawn" is a loose adaptation that will leave an impression on those who read it. A long read to be sure (divided into five parts), this story brings the tragic life of a freindship at war. Hopefully, it will be enjoyed by many.

Looks good, can't wait to see how it shapes up.:twilightsmile:

Well, i knew the Film "Red Dawn". The Story is good so far and I hope, this Story here will continue.:twilightsmile:

I was enjoying this a LOT, but then the chapter ended. :raritycry::fluttercry: Make More, this fanfic is delicious! :pinkiehappy::twilightsmile:


Keep reading tonight...

To make the story flow better, I'll have to add some stuff to the end of part one (about three locations), and then Part 2 will come out sometime next week...

Glad you enjoy it!:rainbowkiss:

Ok, update's up for Part 1

Overall, it was pretty good, and well-developed.

Some sentence structure is weird, though. To use an example, when the paratroopers were coming down, there was a certain sentence that established itself as if the observing crowd was flying down. Not a biggie, but it might be worth considering.

There were a few errors with tense, but they weren't major. Some other minor grammatical errors were present, but nothing that detracted from the story.

Several times there were missing words, but I could piece most of it together, so it's not too major.

This next one is just a personal preference of mine, but I tend to favor variation in the 'said' or 'asked' deals, to give a bit more detail. It's only my opinion, though, so I wouldn't really change anything to match it.

Finally, when they got the supplies, you repeated the sleeping bags with two crates.


I quickly changed the sleeping bag part.

I may review it later for the other grammatical errors, so overall, thanks.

No, Rarity.....:fluttercry:


Once again, not bad. A few errors with putting 'hands' instead of 'hooves', and some grammar stumbles, but nothing really major.

You get props for taking one of my favorite '80s action flicks, adding 20% more ponies, and having it still be good. Liked.

Spoiler Alert:

Just don't kill all of them, except two.

Alright, cover imagie is up, courtesy of Block Eraser/Gigatoast (thanks again if you're reading this)

Even if Spike was forced to betray Twillight and the others, i hope he pay for that what happend to Twillight!:twilightangry2:

Sorry for taking so long

Out of town and shizz like that. Plus I've been busting my butt on "Red Light City" ( with Joe Amethyst (who is another great writer; check out his "Numb"). I promise to get this out by Tuesday the latest.

Anyway, questions are accepted.

After a long time, Lunar Dawn IV is out

read and comment!

Part V is promised, though it won't nearly be as long. It's an epilogue chapter

Wow... just... wow... this matched the movie almost perfectly. :ajsleepy::applecry::rainbowdetermined2::raritycry::flutterrage::twilightsmile::derpytongue2::eeyup: it's ok. You can stop fighting now. We shall meet in the place where rivers of sweet water flow. Your war is over.

:pinkiehappy:, thank you for taking :scootangel: and :unsuresweetie: to safety. Celestia willing, you'll never have to see such horrors again in your lifetimes.

:trixieshiftright: good riddance.




Deep Comment

Glad you like it!

Stay tuned: Epilogue is on the way

*p.s. Read Sunset. It clears up on the Elements of Harmony a bit better

did read sunset, was good..

still don't see why :trollestia: wouldn't drop the sun close over Hoofingham, just scorch the lunar bases and capital.

Then the Solar forces could easily break the unsupported Lunar offensive.


Surprise Attack! :derpytongue2:

Plus, Part 1 of Lunar Dawn describes how Luna and Celestia don't use the sun and moon as weapons. :twilightblush:

Hey a quick comment on formatting: if you're not going to put spaces between paragraph breaks, then you really should indent the first line of each new paragraph, as this improves readability. This is a good story but it's kind of a nightmare to read, especially in scenes where there's lots of dialogue.

Just a heads up. This is a good story and I'd hate for you to be deprived of the hits you deserve, because---and trust me on this one---a lot of readers will pass this up because of the unsound formatting. People don't have a lot of patience for that sort of thing, and as an author having poor technical skills makes it look like you don't know what you're doing from the word go.

Other than that, though, keep up the good work!


Thanks, I'll try to do that to all of the chapters tonight :twilightsmile:

so...much...yes...A well-forged conclusion to a very good adaptation story.

n length, the rifle was about 710 centimeters.

Im... ugh dont even know what to say, thats 23.29 feet or 279.527559 inches dude, 100 cm is 1 meter...

I can't even imagine what a huge ass assault rifle that is... Unless ponies are giant compared to us humans.

Also see you use the past tense of drag as drug,its dragged.

A colt is a young male horse(stallion), the kids like pipsquek, snips and snails in the show.


can't please everyone

got to fix that though :twilightblush:

Scootaloo had gone to do some low altitude (so as not to be seen) flight exercises with Scootaloo.

One of them is Rainbow dash i bet.

I've never red Red Dawn, but this story is great. Didn't expect that many characters to die though. Still good.

>>2058923 Red Dawn is the very 1st PG-13 rated movie to ever be released since 1984. It has to do with the Soviet Union launching an assault on the United States, & a bunch of war heroes have to fight back. Look it up, & you'll know what I'm talking about.
