    Previews of my next updates!

    Why haven't I written anything, you ask? But I have! I updated a story followed by a whopping 73 people!

    *sigh*

    And I have added to some fic updates, such as Mac Unhitched and Regression, and even a little bit of pony bar time!

    But, real life work is taking all my time.

    I'm sorry guys, I really am.

    It seems like I've just got so much going on right now. Like I went from 0-60 in under a few days time.

    I'm not quitting, or anything like that, but, I figure I'd let you know the progress on some of the things I've been working on.

    Hell, I'll even include a preview or two!

    As the Songbird Sings:

    The Monster From the Forest

    "Call for backup immediately! Get the entire division down here, now!" Sargent Shield said, rushing out the door, brandishing his spear as it hung in his magic. Once he rounded the corner of Fluttershy's cottage, he recognized the mare they were looking for.

    "Miss Fluttershy! Get away from that thing!"

    The Songbird stepped forward, causing the earth beneath their hooves to tremble. He balled his fists, revealing the razor sharp blades on his gloves.

    "Mr. Bird, please don't hurt them!" Fluttershy cried

    Sorry songbird fans, That's all you get! (because that's all there is :''(

    Macintosh Unhitched:

    Mac was up before the sun the next day. If the madame wanted this stallion dead, he supposed he had no choice. He had wrestled with the moral dilemma of killing a pony not connected with his mission.

    Ah suppose this is just another stop on the way... he thought, dressing himself in the dingy room given to him by his new employer. A shuffling sound distracted him. A newspaper slid beneath the door with a note tied around it, a last known location of his target. He took the paper, removing the note and stowing it in the pocket of his duster. He tossed the paper on the bed, but took a second glance once he caught the headline.

    ARMY OF THE SUN SWELLS RANKS! POWERS TAKE SIDES! WAR IMMINENT!

    Mac's jaw hung slack as he scanned through the opening paragraphs.

    The kidnapping of a vital part of the equestrian national defense six months ago has finally warranted a swift and just response from the crown. The army of the sun's ranks continue to grow as recruits flock to punish those who would commit crimes against the kingdom.

    The lawless territory newspapers usually had a pro-equestria slant, but Mac couldn't doubt the truth in black and white. He knew at the outset of his mission that it would only be a matter of time before word of Rainbow's disappearance became public knowledge. Once that happened, he knew the Princesses would have to do something.

    He would have never guessed that something was rebuild the Equestrian army. Further down the page, a picture of his wife and son stared back at him. His time was running out. Mac knew an invasion would only complicate things.

    "Another ponies' blood on your hooves."

    Mac cut his eyes to the old victorian chair in the corner. The light from the lantern didn't quite reach, though there was no need for it. He knew who was sitting there.

    "He knew what was coming. I gave him the choice."

    A bright red point of light rose, and then rested on the chairs arm as a cloud of smoke veiled the shadowy figure. "You sure didn't hesitate, did you?"

    Mac hated when he showed up. "You know what happens when you hesitate."

    A scoff echoed from the corner. "Yeah, I do. So, have you thought about what I said?"

    Mac's face twisted into a snarl. "Ah ain't a murderer."

    "You don't think so?" The figure leaned out of the shadows. "You know what murderers do, don't you?" Mac stared back at his dark companion, a reflection of himself. "They kill. You've killed." His dark passenger sat back, taking another drag of his cigarette. "Connect the dots."

    Please don't read in to how a hooved creature could hold a cigarette without fingers. I sure didn't.

    Regression:

    Princeps Autem Solis

    The full moon is due tonight. It is identical to countless nights before, only this time, there is a tension I've not felt in many hundreds of years. Something is wrong. A storm has been brewing on the horizon, and I fear my sister knows of it as well. What's truly worrying, is that she refuses to acknowledge it. The impeding worry covers her like the heaviest cloak, and yet, she pretends everything is fine. She may ignore it, but I believe I know what is coming.

    The blades are coming. Another case has been reported in Manehattan. The EIA has been exceptional at concealing the cases from the general public, but they're mounting. They can't be hidden forever.

    Celestia refuses to renew the covenant. We renewed it once before. Discord, Celestia and myself all gathered in the Hallowed Ground. It cost us dearly. Epona can be a cruel deity. She demands so much from us to keep our children safe, to allow them the same gifts that we have enjoyed.

    I'm afraid my sister's tolerance for the renewal has disappeared. I cannot lay blame upon her. It is truly a dreadful process, to be renewed. For the kingdom, it is good. Wonderous, no doubt. The lethargic are granted energy, the sad are given joy, and the angry are given peace. But for us, there is naught but misery. A torment beyond comparison, beyond the mere words of any language awaits us for every bargain struck with Epona. Our life, the lives of all creatures on this planet flow from her, and through her. It is only through her grace that we live, and it is only fitting, that through her grace, we should recede.

    A Pony Walks Into A Bar...

    Trixie

    Another time, a unicorn in a cape and wizard hat wandered in. She held her head high as she entered, the hat dragging across the doorframe. With a swish of her magic, her clothes hung themselves on the hatrack.

    All I've got. Still thinking of a story for Trixie.

    That's not all of it, but there's a sample of some of what I've been up to. Fans of the various stories, what did you think?

Yay glad to see its finally here

#2 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>576615 Thats right! And it will CONSISTENTLY update once every week.

#4 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Great start! Oh boy adding in a love triangle as well... this isn't going to end well.

#5 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

o shit....... a catfight for Big mac......:pinkiegasp:

#6 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

It's up and already awesome! Instant favourite!

I'm guessing Dash's face to the letter was something like this -->  /):rainbowkiss:(\

But uh oh, love triangle inbound! At least it's not FlutterDash, that would have annoyed me...for some reason...dunno why really :rainbowhuh:

#7 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

saw that ending coming right from the line when you mentioned fluttershy didn't have a full night sleep as well... Either your foreshadowing is rusty or I have read WAY to many fics :P

Great story btw !

#9 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>576673

I've read enough fanfiction to know where this is going?

#10 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Fluttershy and Rainbow "Best Pony" Dash competing for Big Mac's attentions? *Steeples fingers* Eeehxcellent.

Glad to see this story arrive! This is gonna be good. :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 128w, 1h ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Well... that's going to cause problems.  I wonder how Fluttershy is going to take finding out that RD and Big Mac are an item.

#12 · 128w, 55m ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

To be honest, "Derpy" is a nonsense name much like "Scootaloo" - the word doesn't actually mean anything in our society, beyond a vague internet term, and that would be doubly applicable in pony society - whilst "Ditzy" is clear in meaning; describing someone as clumsy, stupid and/or air-headed. I always prefer Derpy.

Also, it's good to see this here!

#13 · 128w, 42m ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Fluttershy/Big Mac/Dash love triangle? Sounds good.

So they've kept it a secret from everyone, does that include AJ?

#14 · 128w, 28m ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>576743 not so much a secret, just that they haven't really said anything to anypony about it. AJ thinks something's going on, but she hasn't confronted them about it yet.

#15 · 128w, 6m ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

What're you talking about?  I named all my children Derpy.

#16 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>576823

That's gotta be confusing during the holiday season, kinda like how George Foreman named all his kids George. :derpytongue2:

#17 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Yay! Very glad to see a sequel emerge to At Home. And right off the bat, we're seeing some delicious seeds of conflict. I'm super-excited to see where this goes. Insta-watched!

I loved the first one and i cant wait for more of this one.

i always loved :fluttershysad:+:eeyup: but now my new head canon is :rainbowderp:+:eeyup: you have changed my head canon :pinkiegasp:

anyway enough with the :yay: your :rainbowderp:+:eeyup: are 20% more awesome then the rest lol

anyway cant wait for more your loyal and loving fan Lord Stormy Sky

#19 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

LOVE TRIAGNLE too bad i saw it comeing but hey its awsome you normaly supirse me any way.

i call her ditzy as well with derpy being a nick name of sorts.

#20 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Big Mac will soon be left in the dust when the feelings of RainbowShy become too much. Mac will instead wind up dating Spitfire. Or this story might take a plausible route that makes much more sense. I'm hoping for the latter.

#21 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

oh my glob you guys drama bomb:pinkiegasp:

#22 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Hmmm either Fluttershy likes Big Macintosh or Rainbow Dash.

#23 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>577018

She clearly said that she was going to confess her feelings for Mac

"*Regardless of whichever name you choose to address our wall-eyed muffin queen, I think we can all agree there is no way any sane, loving pony parents would name their daughter Derpy. Although Ditzy isn't much better... But Faust has decreed that either name is acceptable."

SOUNDS like someone has forgotten about Diamond Tiara's father... and grandfather...

#24 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Eh, I saw the love triangle coming. That's not to say this won't be any less awesome though.

#25 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>577053 Sorry I was skimming through it before heading out to do some errands.

#26 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

The chapter was great but something that concerned me was i pre-read this chapter last night and the grammar revision i made wasn't there. I just want to know if my email with the revised version didn't make it through. Specifically i mean right before dash meets mac and it says " She grinned, flying towards him, sure she didn't notice her above him." it should be "he didnt notice her" because your referring to mac not noticing her flying. Unless that was just very miniscule and you decided not to change it. I just want to make sure i did my job :twilightsheepish:

#27 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Oh? So I don't need to send in my copy.

That's cool.

#28 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

just as i expected a really awesome story, and god that love triangle i just cant wait to see what is goning to happen :pinkiehappy:

#29 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

awwww yeah! Time for some more awesomeness

#30 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

I'm calling Rainbow Dash tells everyone she's going to be a Wonderbolt and then ends up not making it in the tryouts.

#31 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>577861 Chapter 1 is a test against my current pre-reader, please send it if you have it.

>>577492 The decision hasn't been made, I sometimes neglect corrections, as I was editing this really late last night. You know grammar, that is for certain!

#32 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

I'm sorry, but am I the only one who thinks that Ditzy is a far more offensive name than Derpy? Ditzy implies that you're a clutz by nature, while Derpy implies that you just are acting silly.

Sorry, but I'd much rather be named Derpy than Ditzy any day. :derpytongue2:

#33 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

I would like to formally announce my support for :rainbowdetermined2::heart::eeyup:

Your last story has made it my headcanon. I even used it for my story. So yeah, go RD!

#34 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>578693 I went to your user page. Where yo stories is? I too love :rainbowdetermined2::eeyup: (if that wasn't obvious).

#35 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>578706

Well, I did have it up here, but I moved to GDocs. Just like the interface better. I'm resubmitting to EqD this weekend, and if I make it, I might move back here.

Here's the link to the prologue: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fjlnV3sAAi5v6WN9bOXK8KFHq6KASGhraltiCQVp89g/edit?pli=1

Be somewhat warned, it's a dark/ HiE fic.

:rainbowdetermined2::heart::eeyup: Doesn't show up until chapter three. Here it is, if you want to skip: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iklATEf7vLfytY9UhJ4EIWk9rh0r9zMHU0SMGfdLK_s/edit

Just a quick mention right now, but it will become a major plot point eventually. Actually, since I have you here, I had planned, if you're okay with it, to have HoTR be the "back story" to their relationship. No flashbacks or anything, just a off-hand mention of them getting together after a cattle drive.

#36 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>578758 I don't mind at all. I'll take a look at it soon, and good luck getting posted on EQD!

#38 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Didn`t even read story, and faved the f**** out of it.

#39 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Oh Fluttershy...:fluttercry:

#40 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

I think the word ditzy just sounds cute in general. In any case, I can only wonder how this love triangle will turn out. Frequent misunderstandings? :trixieshiftleft: Settled in one chapter? :trixieshiftright: Can't wait for next chapter.

#41 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

>>576714>>578664 Derpy implies accident-prone, while Ditzy implies air-headed. Guess which one I prefer.

#42 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

You piece of shit. How did I know that you would do this and make a love triangle? Whelp. Time to have my emotions ablaze for the next few weeks.

#43 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

TAKIN' ALL BETS!

TWO TO ONE ON RAINBOW BASH!

FOUR TO ONE ON PSYCHOSHY!

BET OFTEN, BET EARLY!

#44 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Man, a love triangle? Totaly fave

#46 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Yessssss

I've been waiting for this.

#47 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

why have I waited so long to watch you? Luckily this brought my attention to my mistake :eeyup:

#48 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

OHGODOHGODOHGODOHGODOHGOD:pinkiegasp:

#49 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·

Aw, sweat! Didnt know you were gonna make a sequel! :pinkiegasp:

#50 · 127w, 6d ago · · · 1. Horizons ·
