    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?

Rainbow Dash finally did it! A sonic rainboom on command! Except she also managed to break every window in Applejack's farmhouse in the process. Now she has to pay for each one, and with her wages from managing the weather not nearly enough to cover the damage, she has to work on Applejack's farm for two whole weeks!

Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. Still, maybe it wouldn't be all bad. At least she would get to hang out with her friend AJ right? Wrong.

yay a good macdash...... this ship is the best....

looking forward for the next chapters and happy hearth warming

Never seen a MacnDash fic before.  Good idea.  :rainbowwild:

fantastic

Big Mac is my favorite pony. All he needs to say is "yep" and he won me over.

As soon as I saw that this was a MacDash fic, I already knew I was going to like it.

Now, you have an interesting dynamic here. Typical, but their character conflict is going to be the best part of the fic, I can already tell. The fun part is watching it unfold. :pinkiehappy:

I'll be here until the end. :moustache:

Seeing the possibility of another of the rare MacDash I had to give this one a shot damn good thing I did. Keep it up man  

That's so rainbow dash!:rainbowlaugh:

liked the way you ended. I did the same thing for my story the Insecurity. Worked really well.:raritystarry:

Maybe, just maybe, a tiny bit more description on the scene with the hat.

Chap. 2 anytime soon?

:eeyup::rainbowderp:                      These 2 go so well together...

>>86589 Thanks! Happy hearthswarming, christmas, hanukkah, kwanzaa, festivus to all!

>>86761 He's such an enigmatic character, its like he's a blank slate to work with. Also, he is one of my favorite non mane 6 ponies.

>>86923 Yeah, there have been so many ship fics that focus on similarities like FlutterxMac, so I figure opposites attract!

>>87004 Thanks much! I agree it's a rare pairing. it was hard enough to find good cover art, and I still feel like Rainbow's eyes are weird looking in that pic.

>>87098 Chapter 2 will be out, but no specific timeframe. I've got a couple hundred words down already, but Discords reign is my current focus. this was actually just a quick write I did for a warm up one day that I thought had potential.

Thanks for the positivity guys/gals!:twilightsmile:

I am disturbed by cattle slavery. :applejackunsure:

Perhaps taking the cattle back to their temp agency would work better?

>>88410

Yeah, I'm pretty much glossing over the fact that the cows can talk and are sentient. plus the animal-heirarchy sounds like another fic altogether.:rainbowlaugh:

>>88440

I think the cows just go with it. They'e getting protection in exchange for their milk. I'd imagine them as being very docile and lax about the subject.

Which would explain the absence of bulls. :trixieshiftright:

I'm liking this so far, hope to see more from you soon :twilightsmile:

lol, another good chapter, looking forward to the next one :twilightsmile:

Such a rare combination! I really like this story; very entertaining. Keep at it!

You've caught my interest. When 90% of shipping fics these days are "Why do I have these strange feelings when I see XX?", this is a relief to read.

Please, continue.

This chapter did not disappoint .Keep it up!  

All right! Another update day! I'm SO HAPPY!:pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss:

>>119821 You know, I've noticed that too. That a lot of shipping fics seem to be that, I mean. It's not too bad, I'm used to it, but it's a little cliché, I suppose.

At the story; I'm pretty sure Rarity wears more clothes than the Apple family.:ajsmug:

Count me as a follower. I'm also partial to MacDash. I think my favorite part is that after the second chapter, they are barely cordial. So many romance fics, regardless of the characters involved, just rush it. Its good to read a story with a sense of pacing that doesn't just pull the love at first sight routine. I'm also a fan of the subtle inclusion of little stringers that may or may not lead anywhere. I wanna know what the mystery item is, and I wanna know now :applecry:

Keep up the good work, it's appreciated.

>>119821>>121426

Yeah, I always noticed that most of the popular fics are just a bit rushed, or use some of those old cliches >>119821 and >>121426 mentioned.

This is new, I already followed, start pumping those chapters out!:eeyup:

Anyone else have this show as three chapters on Bronius' page, but then only two when you try to read? I get my hopes up every time ...

Hole-ee Christ, this is bloody brilliant!  I cannot wait for the next chapter!  Actually, I can, take as long as you want.  I would feel terrible if I mad you rush.  Best wishes!

I have a huge complaint. You don't write fast enough!

Other than that, I like the story. You really portray the characters quite well, and so far it's been a fun little story. I'm looking forward to the rest of the fic.

I hate rattlers. They're a pain to deal with...

Eager to see how this plays out.

and that's why cowboys wear boots.

Question: Can't the cattle in MLP talk?

Boy howdy, that stallion has no luck at the moment does he?

>>161790Thanks! Not to worry, I make every effort to release the chapter when it is up to par. Unfortunately this can result in some inconsistent update patterns. :fluttercry:

>>161795 Ah, yes. The time I have to write is somewhat limited by outside influences, as well as that other fic I've got going that's nearing completion. After it's done however, this will be updated a lot more frequently.

>>162239 Yes, but for the sake of this fic, they keep to themselves. That may be lazy writing on my part but screw it.

I'm glad y'all are enjoying the ride!

Very good chapter!

I wonder how much responsibility Rainbow's gonna have after that venom spreads...

I hope Mac's got a remedy...

And then it became a matter of life and death for Big Macintosh. Hopefully Rainbow Dash can save him.

...on second thought, he's doomed.:fluttercry:

Just thought I'd like to say that it'd be nice to see Big Macintosh see that there's more to Rainbow Dash than just a loudmouthed athlete. It'd be a great development point for him. :twistnerd:

Big Badass Macintosh!

THREE CHEERS FOR RAINBOW-MAC!

I love seeing that blue cutie pie with the tender arms of a stallion moving all over her. :rainbowkiss:

Lol, love that last bit.

Rainbow. Rainbow, Rainbow, Rainbow. Pride inevitably cometh before a smack in the teeth with a wet fish!

Go Rainbow go! Prove those jackflanks who call you lazy wrong :rainbowlaugh:

Awesome chapter, Bronius. Really awesome. I've dealt with snakes in my life, being born in Texas and going on many a camping trips. Looking forward to next chapter.

"Unless you're chicken like your little buddy Scootaloo!"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... love it

So RD's got a fear of needles?:rainbowderp:

I hope Big Mac gets better too!

I mean he will get better, right?:ajsmug:

Right?:twilightoops:

RIGHT?!?!:pinkiegasp:

Nice chapter! I'll always be hoping for more soon, right?:pinkiehappy:

...

...right?!:pinkiecrazy:

RIGHT?!?!?!?!:flutterrage:

Trouser snake antivenom, Really?

A proud, inexperienced pegasus and a KOed ton of pure, muscle VS a pack of hungry Coyotes. This does not bode well.

HURRY UP AND GET BETTER BIG MAC!

>>180610 They called me a madman when I told them I could write a cheap dick joke in an MLP fanfic. Well who's laughing now?! Mwahahahaha!

Seriously though, you're the first person who noticed,(or at least called me on it) so you get one free internets. Congratulations!  

>>181008

Woohoo, I earned a free internets!

BTW, I believe that trouser snake antivenom is called spermicide.

Oh man this is really good. I am glad I decided to read this. Although I noticed a little spelling error in it.

Rainbow perked up, now she was talking her language.

I think you mean that HE was talking her language. Confused me when I first read it but after re-reading it I realized what it meant. Just something to edit if you have free time. I shall continue to read the rest of this awesome story.
