    Another Update: Seattle Edition!

    Status Update

    So, I've been very quiet as of late. Thought that I should give you guys a quick status update.

    Let's start with the elephant in the room: White Collar Ep 3. It's been over three weeks since I promised it would be done. Well, as you probably noticed, it's still not been published.

    Welp, short version is, it's still not done yet.

    I said no more excuses, so I'm not going to make one. In all honesty, had I actually taken the time to work on it more, I probably could have finished it in time. But I was lazy, procrastinated, and worked on other things instead. For everyone that's eagerly awaiting Sweetie Belle's further misadventures, I'm very sorry that I didn't get it done on time, and I hope that you can forgive me.

    So what's it's current status and when is it coming?

    It's about three-fourth's finished and will be done soon...ish... I can't (and probably shouldn't) make another promised date because of the next thing I want to mention. Tomorrow, I am moving to Seattle, Washington in preparation for starting my new job next week. While this should be a time for settling in, the problem is I still don't have a place to live. I have a hotel for a couple of days, and potentially a temporary apartment for a month, but I still don't have my own apartment. So, once I get there, I'm going to be spending almost all of my time looking for a place to live, scheduling getting my stuff moved in, buying furniture and the like (since I don't actually own anything save for a desk...), and hopefully getting this all done before I start work next Monday.

    Short version: I'm really stressed right now.

    Anyways, the point was, I probably won't be putting much work into writing for a while. Again, I'm very sorry for making you wait so long, but I'd much rather write something worthwhile than quickly churn out something that I'm not quite as pleased with. Once things settle down, I really hope to get back to writing again. I'm probably going to be quiet until then.

    Anyways, that's all for now. Thanks again for your patience.

Everypony you meet makes an impression in your life, either good or bad. Sometimes the impression is very minor, but other times it lasts long after it's ended. Rainbow Dash knows this all too well, and has spent most of her life trying to forget about somepony who hurt her when she was young. But as she's about to learn, you can't run from your past forever, and sometimes even the bad experiences may help change you for the better.

A look into what made Rainbow Dash the mare she is today, and an indirect sequel to That Warm Feeling. (Though, you don't have to have read it first to read this one.)

This was an incredible story! You get so much love from me and your other fans.

#5 · 130w, 2d ago · · ·




anyways will there be a sequel? :D

#6 · 130w, 2d ago · · ·

Wow. Thanks so much everypony. I'm so glad that you like it. :yay:


Fans?!? :pinkiegasp:

Seriously though. You just made my week with that comment. :scootangel:


A direct sequel? Probably not. I wanted to keep the ending open to the reader's imagination, and I don't know if I want to spoil that. However, I do have at least one more Scootaloo/Rainbow story that I want to write, which will likely reference events from this story, and TWF as well.

#7 · 130w, 2d ago · · ·

I totally loved this story. just like your other scootaloo story. keep up the great work!:heart:

ow.. and many manly tears have been shed!:fluttercry:(In class:pinkiesad2:)

#8 · 130w, 1d ago · · ·

Fantastic story, this could just be an actual episode from the show :heart:

#9 · 130w, 1d ago · · ·

Okay, I admit it. I cried. :raritycry:

It was so heartwarming, oh, SWEET CELESTIA MY HEART! Beautifully crafted, and incredibly touching.

#10 · 125w, 6d ago · · ·

D'awwwwwww :3 I liked it... a lot!

The end is a bit abrupt but you already said that's on purpose. Well, it's a bit disappointing that you don't gonna write a sequel but as long there is coming another Sco/Dash story everything will be fine :3 (every mistake you find belongs to me!)

This was exquisite. The dynamics you established between Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo, as well as between Rainbow Dash and her mother, were believable and heart-wrenching. I was especially moved by the gravesite scene and mother-daughter argument scene.

I was a bit put off by the sudden ending at first, but it didn't take long for me to realize what you were going for. You want your readers to continue the story in their heads, and imagine their own ending, so to speak. This is a tricky technique to pull off, but I think you picked a good spot to end the story for this.

All in all, a wonderful short story with great characterizations and  a moving message. Well done, my friend. Well done. C:

This is honestly one of the nicest compliments I've ever received. You have no idea how much that means to me. Thank you so much. :scootangel:

#14 · 83w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

you should continue with a part two. this was so well written and I cant believe how into it I got for it being only a one parter. I came from a well off family and was expected to complete college and the whole shindig. instead I went to fight in Afghanistan because that's just who I am. im a fighter, I love being hot, cold, dirty, sore, hunting and being hunted. My mom doesn't understand it and we don't talk like we used to but she is still mom.

I would love to see this continued into an epic feels and scootalove fic.

BUT WHEN IS THE SEQUEL?! :flutterrage:

#16 · 81w, 6d ago · · ·


I'm glad that you enjoyed the story. Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, I'm not planning on writing a direct sequel to this particular story. I wanted to leave the ending as open as possible and I feel that expanding beyond this would take away from that.

That said, I AM working on another Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash story which essentially take place in this same timeline. However, it got put on hold due to school and my working on other projects. One day, I'll get around to actually finishing it. :twilightblush:
