FUCK YEAH!

#2 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 22h ago · · ·

YES! FINALLY!

Edit:

A couple things you may want to fix, but I might be wrong:

The two diamond dogs had a trick or (two) left, however;

Rainy (looked) like he might be sick

It scurried across the dusty dirt floor, staying out of reach (more) by luck than design, as it ran.

Empty, the building held a strange aura, as if echoes (of) the the thousands of lessons spent under its roof could still be heard.

An excellent start to what is surely going to be an excellent sequel. I look forward to the next chapter.

Now this was worth the wait.  Legendary doesn't even come close.

#4 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 22h ago · · ·

Yes, YES!

Love the Sharptooth backstory.

FINALY :pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy::yay::moustache:

#6 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 21h ago · · ·

Yeeessssss!!!! Its finally here....

My PRECIOUS! :pinkiecrazy:

I sense that perhaps we shall finally get the answers to some pressing historical questions....

"As cute as me?"

"Uh uh."

Wise answer young Chip. Very wise.

Some of those diplomatic smarts are rubbing off from Father to Son I see.

#7 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 21h ago · · ·

yes finally!:pinkiehappy:

#8 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 21h ago · · ·

Ahh, poor Chip, I keep hoping him and Carmine can stop stumbling over words and meanings and admit thay like each other. She seems good for him, incuraging him, and letting him know that being who he is is allright. At the same time, he provides a brake for her agression, and I expect both will find themselves happyer.

Course, this could all be a buildup so he can violently murder her off later and give Chip a good bit of pain, but I do not think such is so.

#9 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 21h ago · · ·

Awesomeness! I SENSE A JOURNEY AFOOT! :pinkiehappy:

#10 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 21h ago · · ·

Oh awesome!! Glad to see this continued. This is the best epic MLP story with the best original characters EVER.

I loved the scene with Chip and Carmine. "So...how'd that work out for you?"

:raritycry:

Heh, can't wait for Carmine and Hairpin to meet. Or Hairpin and Rainbow Dash for that matter. *Salutes* Well done sir, well done!

#26 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

Check notifications, "King of Diamonds? Hmm...

Wait. That pony looks familiar.

Read description, Chiphoof Iro-WOOHOO!!:yay:

#27 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

*smirks* About time you made this one public, love! I just know it's going to be magnificent!

Also, the art for this? Chat blows me away every time.  It's nice to get a proper view of Chip in his gear, and an ACTUAL look at Carmine now! VERY pretty!

You know we'll back you every step of the way on this :3

#28 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

Wondering when ya was gonna post it

#29 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

I can't believe that I actually squealed for joy upon seeing this in my inbox... :facehoof:

*Drops what he's currently reading and dives in* :yay:

Later: Ok, the preview didn't do this justice.  I eagerly await further instalments!

#30 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

Oooooo......  chip is back. Tracking!!

#31 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 16h ago · · ·

"I'll never get like that around a girl."

Oh, irony. Though, of course, Spike would protest that Rarity isn't a girl. She is a lady.

In any case, huzzah! The sequel begins! The saga continues! The noun verbs!

...

Yeah, let's go with that. Looking forward to more, including Chip's continuing dracomorphosis and the complications of his new title.

#32 · Chapter 1 · 112w, 14h ago · · ·

This is awesome. Your writing is as sharp as ever. Just pisses me off, a little. Dragons are such douche nozzles. I'm about to start writing my "Pig Iron vs 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment" story. Thinking about calling it "Fire and Scales vs Blood and Steel." He's gonna get it goooooooooood....
