    Murphy is real...

    WARNING: This blog contains information that some of you may find disturbing or distressing.

    You know what, Murphy's Law is real, and let me tell you all now that Murphy's an absolute c**t and a half.

    So, last week I put out a blog about how the next update for GF&GF would be finished by this Friday. It seemed like an easy enough goal at the time; I had about one thousand words or so in mind, and the plot points fairly much planned out (bit of dialogue to figure out, but that didn't seem too big a deal). All I had to do was survive a weekend and hand in some university architecture group stuff on Monday. Doesn't sound too hard, does it?

    Enter Murphy.

    The weekend played out something like this. Saturday night I had a friend's 21st, which did originally sound like a pain, but I agreed to go after a long-time best mate of mine (who's also in my studio group) said he'd be going as well. The plan that we agreed on was that we'd do our individual stuff on Saturday, crash at his place Saturday night, and put all the work together on Sunday (Two people = half the time = sounds good), and thus everything would be ready for Monday. Like I said though, that was the plan...

    Suffice to say that it's best that I don't repeat what happened at that 21st. It left pretty much everyone there feeling utterly betrayed and emotionally gutted, and shattered any sense of trust I had in one of my best friends. I ended up getting home at 4 in the morning, after driving some two and hours, feeling pretty fucked up if I'm being blunt and honest.

    I've mostly worked through it emotionally, but it has meant that I'm now saddled with the work of two group members on top of dealing with the fallout, so the chances of me getting GF&GF finished by this Friday have taken a major hit. I'm going to try, but I can't go making any promises now.

    Again, I'm so, so sorry for this.

    And here we stand, two steps from hell...

    ...Or two days out from the first major submission for uni in my case :rainbowwild: Anyhow, a quick update on updates.

    GF&GF is currently at around 2100 words after a total of nine drafts and rewrites (to quote some movie I can't remember the name of, "I shit you not"). That should be getting close-ish to being done by next Friday, provided I don't suddenly start to hate what I've already written... again. Also, my thanks to Vexy for his quickfire editing of the last chapter, but I am looking for a somewhat full-time editor for the chapters to come, so let me know if you're interested. (Editor would have access to the chapter while it's being written, and I'd possibly be willing to give co-author rights if they were interested)

    P.G.T.T.D has been through about four or five drafts, and currently sits at around 1800 words. I won't give a date for that update with uni strangling me for time, but hopefully within the next few weeks.

    Stay classy people.

    So... anyone interested in doing a PGTTD chapter edit?

    Hey everyone.

    Well, with the next chapter being put together this weekend (lest I declare myself a procrastinating tosser), and with the art work 100% and 90% done respectively (plus some done by readers *squee!*), the next update of PGTTD should be out soon...

    Only one issue. Edragon has, as far as I know/can tell, either abandoned FimFiction or gone walkabout (Don't mind my Australian). He's been offline for 9 weeks now, and since I'd rather not risk another unedited chapter, I'm wondering if there's anyone who could pre-read/edit this chapter. I'm not looking for long term commitment at the moment, just a hand with this chapter in the unexplained absence of Edragon... but eventually that card will be on the table to anyone who's interested (provided Edragon has indeed departed this place of insanity and pony fiction).

    Just a few basic points if you're interested.

    - Chapter trade is done by either gdocs or word .doc attachment (I can do either).

    - I'm alright with grammar, but nowhere near perfect, so help in that regard would be very welcome.

    - My English is Australian (British), so be aware of some different spellings here and there if you're from USA.

    - Within reason, you're allowed to make any additions (actions, dialogue, descriptions, snark, jokes etc) that you feel would improve the story (I might take some out after I re-read, but I'll always explain why).

    - You can reword, change, switch around text at your discretion (If it's a really big chunk of text, or a section related major idea presented, I would prefer to know the logic... just so I don't make the mistake twice.)

    You can PM me or Leave a comment here if you're interested, either's good... or just hurl bottles left over from your New Years celebrations at me for making you wait so long. :rainbowwild:

    In other news, happy 2014!

    Anyway, that's all from me for now *returns to photo-shopping Cynder*

    Where the hay is my update?!

    Hey everyone *ducks under hurled shoe*

    So, if you've been wondering lately, no, I am presently not 'six feet under' or 'pushing up flowers', just busy with the combination of life, uni, and trying to find an architecture firm looking to offer (unpaid) work experience.

    Now then... update on updates. I'm pretty sure the top comment on both P.G.T.T.D and GF&GF will say the same thing, and both are correct; Edragon presently has the next chapters for both, but (if someone from the USA can possible clarify this with their own uni/college calendar) I believe he's been struck down with exams or something of the alike.  

    In the meantime... well, I'm doing some edits for Underworld, FF:Zsc, and for a follower/reader's story (Darkheart, if you're reading this, I've taken you're first 500 words and turned them into 1600).

    Finally, for those of you following P.G.T.T.D, the next chapter will (hopefully) have some art included.

    I'M FREE!!

    G'day everyone

    Yes, at long bloody last, uni's done for semester and my exams are out of the way (YAY! F*** you arch-history). So, just thought I'd give you all a heads up on where everything currently sits; the next chapter of Underworld is currently with Edragon (or it is if gmail stopped eating my emails), Final Fantasy sits at 1500 words and should be 3k by tonight, and P.G.T.T.D is currently at 500 (I'm planning on throwing out two chapters next update, since I made you all wait so long last time round)

    Hope life's treating you all alright.

(Spyro seriesXmlp) Spike's always been curious about his race, but then again, what dragon wouldn't be when all they've ever known is ponies? So when a spell book arrives that may offer some answers to his questions, with a little help from Twilight of course, the young dragon is overjoyed to say the absolute least.

However, a problem arises when things somehow end up going astronomically sideways, and Ponyville finds itself playing host to three unexpected visitors; three scaly visitors by the names of Spyro, Cynder, and Ember to be exact, each bringing their own personal matter of chaos to the small town.  

Soon, awkward and unusual situations arise, tempers flare with destructive consequences, personal demons threaten to rear their long suppressed heads, and Spike learns that sometimes, if you wait long enough, love will find you.

Inspired by this piece of fan-art I found (not mine) featuring Spike and Ember, and the short comic 'Spyro's back'

Ember (voiced by Tara Strong) is a pink dragon who... wait what?

DUN DUN DUN!:rainbowderp:

Okay, definitely tracking

Your premise and setup is intriguing, I shall now like and favorite so that I may continue to see this story evolve.:twilightsmile:

A Spyro crossover eh?

I gotta admit, I'm surprised there isn't more of these.

:duck:this im now interested

my interest has been peaked

I just realized something... Ember and Twilight Sparkle (Spike's Adoptive Mom/Sister) are both voiced by Tara Strong...

dragons you say, please do go on

>>811222 o_O REALLY?! :pinkiegasp:

Can't wait for more :D

Dragons, thou sayest? My interest doth be piqued good bard!

Well this looks interesting. *Reads*

That said, this is going straight to our favourites.

I really think this could work, The premise of this story is really interesting but the only thing I want to know is, Why did you also bring Cynder and Spyro? Are you pairing them too?

Anyway, Really looking forward to another chapter.


Spyro and Cynder are (from memory anyway) paired in game. They are there for various reasons relating to Spike and Ember but I don't want to reveal too much right away.

>>813285 you need to think about this

it is ganna be hard to mistake the two if that is what you are going for.

Spyro has horns, wings, his spine scales are yellow while Spike's is green

so Cynder wouldn't mistake them if that is where you wanted to take this

if you were going for Ember for him then forget i said anything.


I understand your point and just to clarify said 'mistaken identities' were never directed at Spike and Spyro (for reasons which you have clearly stated). As said before however I am not one to let on too much before I write you'll just have to wait and see what I meant :rainbowdetermined2:  

>>827650 as i said, if you werent going that way, then pretend i didnt say anything

I like it alot already. :rainbowlaugh:one thing that bugs me though is:

"...was straight looking at..."

every time I read something like this, it throws me right off, causing me to re-read parts all over again.:rainbowhuh:

but still, very good

Fan fucking finally why the fuck did I not see this Before I mean I fucking searched the Internet and couldn't find a fic as good as this so far

>>859926, thanks :rainbowwild: I'm glad you enjoy :twilightsmile:

>>859952 enjoy it I fucking love it it's just just fucking amazing I mean I'm a fucking fanatic for spyro

Honestly I have to agree that good Spyro/MLP crossovers are too few and far between. Thank you for helping me indulge in a bit of nostalgia.

>>Bookmaster dude........use some punctuation........:rainbowhuh:

Great story so far, Cant wait until the next chapter.

(And I cant wait until I get enough chapter so I can write a long ass review, Its just my thing XD)


I will happily await your review in due course :pinkiehappy:

>>860962 no I just live the spyro series and mixing it with mlp just makes it better

I've never got into the Spyro games, but I always love stories that involve dragons as a main character. hope you luck for your future chapters.

What so this is early on in the games? because by the end of the games she is clam and more like playfull? idk i dont really care i just want to see what happens to spike and what the hell rarity says about it? Dis gonna be good

Where the hell is spyro ah and yes I mistook this for a completely different crossover but it's still good I thought it was after spyro dawn of the dragon not skylanders unfortunately It is not the fic I was looking for but I will definitely read this


I know Cynder changes...but I guess it just gives me more of a character to play with when she's sarcastic...:derpytongue2:

Prior Note: After looking up for characterization purposes I’ve found Cynder is actually very dark violet (almost black but not quite) so I’ll be making a few changes when I can.

Well technically, Cynder was originally black. She only became that dark violet color after Activision took over the Spyro franchise.

I'm going to assume that since this is supposed to be the Skylanders version of Cynder (and I like how you've personified her and integrated her Legend of Spyro backstory into a Skylanders form) that this is also your interpretation of a Skylanders version of Ember as well. If so, I like how you've managed to create her personality. I also like that you pointed out that Ember is like the dragon version of Pinkie Pie. I also assume that's how you created her personality for this story.

Something tells me that Ember and Pinkie are going to get along great with each other.

:/ is this a mix of sky landers and the older spyro games? Cause if so don't forget all types of cynders breaths


Pretty much is a yes...I'm planning on having cynder teach Twilight a couple things in coming chapters (metophorically speaking)

Exasperated statement; Apparently Fluttershys limitless fear robs her of inteligence and/or common sense at times.

Nice to see Spyro's finally awake, I was starting to think he'd remain unconscious through the entire story:twilightsheepish:. For some reason Ember rubs me the wrong way, not quite sure why but maybe it's because she's pink:pinkiecrazy:. (I kid, the few seconds of her I ever saw made her seem too submissive.)

And I was fully expecting Spyro to say that being summoned to another world against his will "Isn't exactly new." However, the story said something about the Skylands correct? Considering Cynder didn't pop up 'till the second Spyro and Ember only appeared in games with the original, I have no idea which one he is. Is he the one from the Insomniac games, the ones where Cynder was introduced or Skylanders?

Or something completely separate, a timeline specifically created for this story?

Great Chapter can't wait for more

poor Fluttershy :facehoof:

I like all the references of the similar voices, I should keep that in mind:moustache:
