    Just a quick update on Ch 57 TLtM

    Hello dear readers,

    Just wanted to keep you in the loop and let you know that chapter 57 of To Love the Moon is in the process of being written. I've been putting in a few hours every day and I'm almost done. Part of the delay is that I've scrapped and restarted the chapter three times. I know you all really want a new chapter, but I refuse to put out something that I'm unhappy with. I've had to rethink how the chapter flows and really work out the personality of some new characters. Once I get this chapter finished, 58 should be faster since I already have most of that mapped out in my head. 58 should be the end of the Exodus arc, so part of the problem with 57 is making sure everything is in place for the arc-ending.

    Anyway, I'm hoping I can wrap this thing up and get it to my editor soon. Assuming he hasn't keel'd over waiting for this thing.

    Thanks for your patience,

    Indigo Eclipse

    Musical Theory and the Princesses

    So, as I'm writing the new chapter (Yes, I'm back into a writing groove) I thought about the four alicorn Princesses and what combination of instruments would best represent them. I guess you could say, imagine a royal fanfare or theme song made for each alicorn, who would prefer what?

    Personally, I think of the following but I'd love to debate/discuss it along with musical styles that they might prefer.

    Celestia: Brass horns with heavy drums. A traditional military and bombastic fanfare.

    Luna: Strings and flutes. Haunting, bittersweet with a flare of hopeful chords.

    Cadance: High pitch percussion ie. xylophones, chimes, bells, along with piano. Uses sweeping melodies with rolling chords.

    Twilight: Guitars, woodwinds, choir (Because voices are instruments too and she is the princess of friendship). Uplifting, upbeat tempo, but technically impressive.

    Agree, disagree? Further expansion of the ideas?

    Have an OC? Read below!

    Hello my dear readers. Quick side note, I should be through with the move in the next couple of weeks, so if all goes according to plan, you SHOULD have a new chapter by the end of this month (Aug). So hooves crossed and all that.

    With that said, as a bit of a thank-you for your support and loyalty, I'm doing something a little special.

    If you have an OC of one of the following types, contact me:

    Bat-pony

    Russian-style pony

    English-style pony (ie. British, think Pip)

    Griffon

    IF your OC falls into one of these categories and your color scheme would fit into the show, I may have some cameo spots coming up in the story. Note, I'm not looking for long drawn out back-stories, a simple concept of who they are would do nicely. Simply put, I could create generic OCs to fit into the slots, but I thought it'd be a nice gesture and something fun for you readers. Please do not take offense if I decide not to use your OC, I must consider the integrity of the story first. I'm not going to jam something in that wouldn't fit. Not enough lube in the world can make a red and black alicorn OC slide into a tight tale. Sorry.

    For Luna.

    Some good news

    Hello all.

    First thing, thank you all for being patient. I know most of you eagerly await more chapters of To Love the Moon and they will come. I also want to thank those of you who donated to helping me through a rough patch. While I wasn't able to square things away completely, it bought me much needed time. You have my utmost thanks and I intend to make it up to you all.

    So, here's what's going on. This last month I've been looking for a place to live. Now that I've found something, I'll be starting to pack and moving in the next few weeks. The good news is that it will give me financial breathing room to get things back in order. Sure, it's a tiny room in a house with other people, but these are the sacrifices one has to make.

    Right, so now you may wonder, "How does this effect the story?". Well, once the move is complete, I'll have more freedom to devote to writing and less stress to take all the joy out of it. In short, be a little more patient and you will be rewarded with more tales of our lovely blue Princess. Please stay tuned!

I really like this so far. You've got my fave, I'll be watching for any updates. :pinkiehappy:

@Hutser Huzzah! My first comment! Glad you're having a good time reading it. I suppose my only wish is whoever clicked down-thumbs would take time to say why.

Anyhoof, steamy pony chapter will be out today, and maybe the following chapter as well.

#3 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter III ·

There are several grammatical errors at the end of chapter 2. Mainly, run-on sentences.

It's like Christmas! :pinkiegasp:

I really don't see why you don't have more comments, this is great so far and really deserves more attention.

>>839657

I'll take a look back through N00813. Even proofreading 3-4 times, I'll miss something. So I appreciate anything pointed out I can fix.

>>839668

If you feel that way, please share with friends!

StarStep nodded to her final words. A part of him still had feelings for the orange pegasus; what exactly those feelings were, he wasn't sure.

I am loving this so far.  It's so great to read an actual story from an author with talent.

#8 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter III ·

>>840053

Thank you Karackas *wing-bow* If you enjoy the story, the best way you can reward me is to show it to your friends. A story isn't a story unless there's someone to read it.

#9 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter III ·

...Aaaand it goes right in my favs! :pinkiehappy:

#10 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter IV (Mature) ·

Sooo having more than one mare is acceptable? I really hope I understood that correctly because after this manly tears will be shed if Scoots doesn't get her chance. :fluttercry: I really liked the character development in this.

#11 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter IV (Mature) ·

>>840701

Yes Hutser. In my vision of their social structure, it's ok to have more than one mate. StarStep's current character issue is that he hasn't figured out how to truly love more than one pony. His tunnel-vision on this obsession with Luna hurts him. No worries, Scoots will return.

#12 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter IV (Mature) ·

That's good to know. I like this social structure better, and I greatly look forward to the next chapter. :moustache:

#13 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter V ·

Best chapter yet. At the end of each chapter my craving for moar increases, especially now that Scoots is involved. I really hate to use the same picture more than once on the same story, but it just seems to fit in perfectly when things are going good. :scootangel:

#14 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter V ·

>>841434

Huzzah indeed! Please spread the love if you're enjoying the story.:pinkiehappy:

My only complaint about FIMFiction is that I'm forced to use the young-scoot character tag. There's not adult CMC character tags. So part of me is afraid some ponies will think it's a foal-fooling fic.

Anyhoof, glad to see you weren't too disappointed by the direction I went with their relationship.

Wow, 15k words in about 24hrs since I started this little project. I'd say I'm on a roll.:rainbowdetermined2:

#15 · 120w, 5d ago · · · Chapter V ·

i love this story so far although it all been fine and dandy, so i really don't understand the sad tag yet, but i assume that stuff is for latter, but ill be watching you...

Na JK, but i will be watching for future chapter or stories, cause Luna is awesome pony

"This is like Christmas. No. It's BETTER than Christmas. It should be it's own Holiday! EXPLOSION DAY! Happy Explosion Day."

An EXPLOSION of cool, that is. (Thanks for your kind words "RICK")

Now, to actually read it and not just skim it. :pinkiehappy:

#17 · 120w, 4d ago · · · Chapter V ·

>>842750

Yes, I went ahead and added the 'sad' tag so as not to blind-side any pony with the later chapters. Since there's no 'bitter-sweet' tag I can use.

Anyhoof, glad to see comments and enjoyment. Please refer it to your friends, my confidence could use more 'thumbs-up'.

#18 · 120w, 4d ago · · · Chapter IV (Mature) ·

Hmm, more then one Mate? Yes! I love the smell of Shipping In the morning, It smell like.... An Orgy? WTF? :rainbowwild:

@Indingo Eclipse sure i will, sir :moustache:

Loved it. It does a lot to show how deep his feelings go for both Scootaloo, and Luna. Can't wait for the next chapter to see what happens next. :pinkiecrazy:

Spoiler Alert: Next chapter has ponies. And the ponies do stuff.

Seriously, I'm glad somepony is appreciating my efforts to develop StarStep's character. If there's any particular moment in the chapters that grab you, please let me know. It's nice to see if y'all get some of the jokes and dramatic moments as intended.:twilightsmile:

#24 · 120w, 4d ago · · · Chapter VI ·

Oh Lighthoof your an average gigolo... nicely done.

#25 · 120w, 4d ago · · · Chapter VI ·

>>847745

The moments like his conversation with Luna in this chapter; those moments really pull me in because that's usually where you really get the best idea as to what the character actually feels. Can't help but sit there with a big goofy smile and that warm fuzzy feeling when they really begin to open up. :twistnerd:

I doubt that's very helpful, but I'll try and pay more attention as the story unfolds. :derpytongue2:

#26 · 120w, 3d ago · · · Chapter I ·

So far the first chapter piqued my interest, also I loved Luna in this chapter and I liked your idea on why the Royal Guards all look the same. Looking forward to reading more.

bad prank was bad, its no surprise starstep snapped like that, and huzzah the shipping begins!

Indeed. It just goes to show, even an immortal moon goddess can make mistakes. Oh, but her pranking is just getting warmed up.

:pinkiehappy: pinkie says it best

#38 · 120w, 3d ago · · · Chapter VII ·

I have this nagging feeling that Luna is trying to push StarStep away... or I may just be imagining things. I really enjoy the feel of brotherhood between StarStep and Lighthoof, kinda makes me wonder how that came to be. While not biologically related, they're so open and playful with each other at times.

"Dude, you're like the one colt I can think of that I don't have the urge to buck into next week when Sherry tells me she thinks you're cute.” <---- This was where I began to think of them more as brothers than best friends. He states that he doesn't like it when Sherry says a colt is cute, well to let another colt rut his fillyfriend with him, that says a lot about their friendship.

“Not sure, left that one in your stash and borrowed Pegasi in Heat, instead.” :rainbowlaugh:

#39 · 120w, 3d ago · 4 · · Chapter VIII ·

Damn man, just cranking out these chapters... :pinkiegasp:

Rapid fire updates, very nice. Started sweet and ended with the funniest spell ever. Well played Luna, well played. :rainbowlaugh:

>>853792

I have the day off for once. I figure two updates today. Happy 4th if you're state-side!

>>853874

Yeah, a part of me wondered if you ponies would get Luna's method of doing things. It's a very awkward and rather adult situation StarStep was put in. But very little I write is without a purpose in this story.

I leave you with prankster Luna http://youtu.be/12460rr3sxk

i think you had to much fun writing this

#43 · 120w, 2d ago · · · Chapter IX (Mature) ·

>>856556

Hah, how can it ever be 'too much' fun? Well, as long as you got a kick out of it. That's my intent.

man, you. are. a. bucking. fantastic. clopfic. writing. machine.

#45 · 120w, 2d ago · · · Chapter IX (Mature) ·

Tisk, you got it backwards. It's a novel with clop stapled to it. I got clop in your plot.

ololol, thats diiiiirty!  :raritywink:

Seriously though.  You have a heck of a lot of skill developing characters, and. . .  arousing. . .  your audience.  At least in my opinion.

#47 · 120w, 2d ago · · · Chapter IX (Mature) ·

>>857196

*wingbows* Thank you for the complement. I'm hoping to prove that even clopfics can have story and depth to them.

If you think the mature sections are naughty now. Just wait till the rest of the characters come into play.

Hoooooh boy.  :pinkiehappy:  And you are quite welcome.  :twilightsmile:

The character development is delicious, and the clop scenes are nice too. It only gets better with every chapter. :moustache:
