    My Little Mommies Rewrite imminent.

    I have good news and bad news.

    The good news is I am working on MLM again.

    The bad news is I'm rewriting it, so for a little while (say the first five chapters or so) we're going to be covering some familiar ground.

    The other piece of good news is that I'm confident it will be a piece of fanfiction that deserves the amount of followers and attention that it managed to accrue.

    I have contacted the people who offered to edit for me and I will post the first chapter as soon as it's okayed.  That could be today, or it could be later this week.  I don't foresee it being much longer than that.  If you are currently interested in editing and didn't offer before, simply mail or write something in the comments and I'll send you the google docs link.

    Anyway, when it's okayed I will compile the complete original version of the story into a single chapter and put it at the bottom.   This means that the comments on the story chapters currently up will become invisible to everyone but me, so if you happened to enjoy the discussion or something, now's the time to back it up.

    I realize that probably wouldn't matter at all to most people, but it is the kind of thing that would bug me, so yeah.

    Now then, what exactly is going to make this rewrite different from the original?  (If you'd rather find out by reading, now's the time to stop.  Rest assured I won't cover anything not covered in the original chapters)

    Meta stuff:

    For one thing, I have prereaders now.  I did have one before, but he sort of gradually quit and then I said, "Meh, who needs him?"  

    Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Next, I'm doing my very hardest not to rush through things.  What's funny is that I was once told this story got forever to get going, yet from my own standpoint I was rushing through everything.  Explanations, drama, telling the families of the ponies that they had a kid.  Point is, I'm trying not to gloss over anything anymore and give every part of the story the attention it deserves.

    Next, planning.  The story is WAY, WAY more planned out than it used to be. I now know, for instance, how each pony unlocks their Love-powerup, whereas before I only knew Rainbow's and Rarity's (which has now changed, incidentally)  This means I can now build towards those plot arcs appropriately instead of having them fly out of nowhere.

    The story is canon again.

    Princess Twilight, reformed Discord, Pinkie and Applejack are distantly related, there are other major mirrors (and mirror pools), the elements of harmony are gone, all resolved within the story.  I'm trying to avoid fight scenes until I find out what's in that box though.  'Course, my plans are still dashed the moment a parent we haven't seen shows up.

    Babies!

    Babies are hard to write for.  The whole reason I did the timeskip was because I thought the babies doing something other than crying and pooping would make that easier.  (It didn't)  So, I tended to avoid it, which is kind of dumb given that it was what drew people to this fic anyway.  Point is, I'm trying to focus a lot more on the babies this time around.  I don't want them to just be props.

    Luna is darker.

    Think modern batman vs. TV show batman.  I feel like anything else I say would be a spoiler so...

    Accents and stuff

    I was horribly inconsistent with Rat Race's accent, so now he doesn't have one.  Good riddance.  Luna also doesn't talk like she did in Luna Eclipsed, since she hasn't done show in any other appearance.  Good riddance to that too.  I was tired of correcting all the mistakes I made with thee and thou and the like.

    There is other stuff, but I think I hit the major points.

    Thank you to everyone that waited patiently (and to those that periodically kicked me in the ass in an attempt to get me moving again.)  You won't have to wait much longer.

    My Little Mommies could be much better.

    Hey all.  I set this post to alert all readers of MLM, because it's directly related.  If that bothers you, I apologize.  I know some people don't like getting blog alerts.

    The response my fic got when I first posted it was amazing, I can't stress that enough.  As a first time writer, I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't what I got.  Cries of "moar!" and compliments on how well written it was;  It was a big self esteem boost at a time when I really needed it.

    However, the very real reality, that I've come to accept recently, is that it needs a lot of work.  Several things caused me to realize this -- reading other fanfics and then looking back at my own and seeing how flat the characters were by comparison, getting a second strike when submitting to EQD despite making extensive revisions, and some other little things not worth mentioning.

    I think the biggest root of my problem is that I don't use "action tags," like, at all.  For a long time I thought it looked weird to have an action right next to something said.  

    "Sure thing pardner."  Applejack grinned. "Come back anytime, ya hear?"

    I don't think that anymore, but because I thought that almost all my writing is like this:

    "Sure thing pardner,"  Applejack said with a grin. "Come back anytime, ya hear?"

    And it's like that over and over again. He said, she said, he asked, they answered, he called, they screamed.  The EQD prereader called it talking head syndrome.  I also think the way I indent is wrong.

    Anyway, what am I getting at here?  Basically, I'd like some help with editing.  I know there are a few groups for that, and I'm going to start looking into those too, but I thought I'd start here.  What I'd like to do is create an unpublished "chapter X" that's a copy of an earlier chapter, give interested people the password, so they can see the changes I make and suggest more, and revise it until it's ready to replace the original chapter.

    Even if you're not interested in that, if you notice any grammatical errors in the fic, pointing them out would be much appreciated.  (I looked at chapter 7 again recently and I REALLY f'd up the dialogue punctuation in that one.  And it was like that for months. >.<  The story comments, comments on this post, or even PMs would be fine.  I reread the entire fic from start to finish every so often but I still come across little things I just glance over, even when I'm looking for errors.

    And before you worry that I'm gonna spend all my time fixing and no time writing new stuff, it's not like I'm planning on stopping all updates while I revise.  The next chapter should be out today or tomorrow, but it's a chapter being written with my previous shortcomings in mind.  What that means is that it should be much better, and hopefully more in line with what I want the rest of the fic to be.

    Momoiro Pony (3D animation)

    When I learned that Mimori Suzuko was going to be the Japanese voice of Pinkie Pie, I looked up her roles.  In doing so, I discovered gdgd faeries, which is a cute little serious about a bunch of faeries that sit around and chat about weird stuff.  After hearing this ending theme/character song, I decided to ponify it.  

    (Turn on captions if you want to understand what is being said)

    Now that this project is finished, all creative energy goes back to My Little Mommies, sorry for the delay.

    My weekend project: Hatsune Miku sings Gypsy Bard.


    Turn on annotations for subs.

    When someone in Japan subtitled Friendship is Witchcraft episode 7, they created two sets of subtitles, one that accurately translated the song, and one that made it "singable" in Japanese.  One convenient midi and Vocaloid session, and we have the Japanese version of Gypsy Bard.  Enjoy!

    Lyrics(translated):

    If within your heart it is a rainy day,

    as if the world is a toy glass ball.

    If we are hurt, let us stand up tall once more.

    And sing this song with hearts that haven't lost.

    For me, long ago in that city, there was an accident involving fire,

    and my first job at the orphanage was "dig those holes."

    Many holes were opened, many holes were filled.

    Now both my memories and the two of them are in ground,

    but I still sing.

    If your daddy and mommy have become stars, (Died)

    then open your ears and listen to this melody.

    When the chimes start sounding, our courage is also ringing.

    With this strength born from an unwillingness to cry, we sing our song.

On a request from Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the mane six explore an abandoned mansion located deep in the woods.  While doing so, they unwittingly stumble across an enchanted mirror that scrambles their DNA and pops out three brand new bouncing baby ponies.  Hilarity and drama ensue as the mane six must cope with being suddenly thrust into motherhood, as well as protect their new foals from a dark god that wishes to use them for his own sinister gain.

:pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

I have no idea what's going on but I wanna find out, so I'll be watching this one. Here, have an up-vote:pinkiehappy:

Woah... this is good.  I'm watching!  Nice inclusion of Norse mythology!  it's a nice twist from the usual old Somepony gets pregnant or discord wrecks havoc sort of Mane 6 get a baby story.

Basically this idea is pretty original and written well.  Keep it up!

Please let one baby be of AJ's and RD's DNA *fingers crossed*

"She loved dreaming so much she even once tried to have a dream within a dream within a dream, but decided that was a bit too silly"

Great story, can't wait to see where this goes.

Woah.... this story is really good! :raritystarry:

It gets five mustaches from me :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Can't wait for the rest :twilightsmile:

Before reading:

Rainbow Dash + Twilight = me

Fluttershy + Applejack = Apple Cloud

Pinkie Pie + Rarity = ?

Edit: After reading, I discovered I was right. For RD and TS. SHENANIGAN TIME!

:duck:You have my attention.

The next chapter... I must have it....seriously, great story!

A favourite from me.

REactions from the 6 once genetics are figgured out:

:ajbemused::raritycry:

:fluttershyouch::pinkiegasp:

:rainbowhuh::facehoof:

This is awesome.

Take a free mustache Spike.

:moustache:

Awesome chapter must have more. And about the idea of romance later please no this has a lot of potential and i would hate to see it devolve into a ship fest. But that is just my opinion and its yours story but again LOVE it so far:pinkiesmile:

This is pretty good.:moustache:

hmmmm...interesting.  :unsuresweetie:

Well this is.........different.

Totally mind-buckingly different.

I am now intrigued. Let us see where this is going to take us in chapter 2.

An interesting premise, I'll keep my eyes on this one.

it's a great start, I'm looking forward to seeing were this goes

ALLLL ABOARD, EVERYPONY! It's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Please, don't let me distract you; carry on.

Interesting. Good read and can't wait to see how this goes. Was thinking of how those foals were paired up as well. Was thinking:

:ajsmug:+:rainbowderp:= filly

:yay:+:duck:= colt

and lastly :facehoof:+:pinkiehappy:= ?

:twilightangry2: Why am I paired up with Pinkie?

me: For now go with it Twilight, it's just a guess.

:facehoof: Why me?

me: Well you could be paired up with someone else. Who knows Twilight, it is up to the author and personaly I see you more with :rainbowhuh: than :pinkiesad2:. Oh well, author, surprise me.

“Yes ma'am. Sorry ma'am, please don't do the chicken thing again ma'am!” :rainbowlaugh:

Was this at all G1-inspired?

From the description of the foals.

Pure Pink Pegasus :fluttershyouch: + :pinkiehappy:

White Unicorn with Blond Hair :applejackunsure: + :raritywink:

Purple Alicorn with Rainbow Hair :rainbowderp: + :twilightoops:

What could "Evil Forces" want with the foals?

I assume that as soon as this is reported to Celestia the Life Mirror itself will be locked down with tighter security than the Elements of Harmony anyone who desires its secrets might decide that it would be easier to reverse engineer the magics from the foals themselves rather than attempt a break in that difficult.

Or as hinted by the Twi-Dash spawn the foals aren't normal ponies and may possess unusually potent or unique abilities.  All the mothers are exceptional specimens after all.  Twilight, Rainbow and AJ are absolute paragons of Unicorns, Pegasi and Earth Ponies respectively.  Fluttershy and Pinkie have non-standard magic for their types.  Rarity...  I've got nothin :raritycry:

And of course the mother's connection to the Elements of Harmony might have unusual affects as well.

Dis gona be gud...:pinkiehappy:

This has potential for incredibly untapped hilarity. :raritystarry:

Will the new mommies breast-feed by the way?

I'm curious about the combination of  :fluttershyouch: + :pinkiehappy: personality wise, :raritywink:+ :ajsmug: attitude wise, and :rainbowwild: + :twilightsmile: power wise.

Bloody hell... This is awesome! Reads like an episode!

interesting....but alas i have halo to play...hmmm certainly read after work tomorrow

Just saw this in the box... sounds hilarious.

For a first ever fanfic, this is quite well written and enjoyable.

Looking forward to more.

I may be wrong about the foal genetics. But from description :pinkiegasp:x:yay: :raritydespair:x:ajsleepy: and :twilightblush:x:rainbowhuh:

is that right?

Anyway im watching this, i can tell it'll be good

This actually sounds really good and its nice fast start. Can't wait for more Babies have tons of potential; they literally potential....which poop.....and smell bad.......and cry a lot.

I like, more please!

*sigh* Not sure if this will live up to it's comedic potential or not. The key stage for that is next chapter. Rainbow Sparkle, Flutterpie, and... I got nothing!:twilightangry2: What the hell would you even call the unicorn offspring of Applejack and Rarity?!:rainbowhuh: I suppose if this 'verse has Rarity's last name as Belle it could be Applebelle/Apple Belle... but if no Rarity Belle then I got nothing!:facehoof:

WES MUST HAZ A :pinkiehappy: + :facehoof: WE MUST. BRillient idea and from how you make it sound makes me wanna jump in withotu a 2nd thought on the matter wish you nonthign but the best! :twilightsmile:

Awesome story so far, though right off the bat I had a problem with the synopsis. "Twilight Sparkle and her five best friends..." is inaccurate. It would lead one to assume that whichever Element has the weakest personal connection with Twilight should have been absent. So one would have been confused as to why there were six ponies instead of five ponies and one dragon. "...you are my number-one assistant and friend, and you always will be." At least reading the fanfic clarified that his existence as a character was acknowledged. Some jerky, careless authors like to just ignore him so they can focus on ponies. Looking forward to seeing this develop!

Rarity does seem the most normal of the Mane 6 but then again unlike most unicorns she does seem able to do magic without thinking about it.  Remember her cutie mark story?  

Somehow I don't think Sleipnir was evil in this continuity... more like a mad scientist prankster who only did it for the lols.

:facehoof: i wish i had rid the story before commeting... anyhoo...BRILLIANCE HAS STRUCK THIS DAY ALL FEAR THIS STORY AND ITS GREATNESS! :twilightblush: I wish you the best of luck!

aww man(stallion?) this just looks awesome.

>>1194378

Actually its

1. Rarity and Applejack

2. Pinkie and Fluttershy

3. Twilight and Rainbow Dash

Read the descriptions of the babies, and you'll see the qualities of they gained from the two DNA givers.

>>1195688

The Chocobo has spoken! So mote it be!

>>1196277 I think you're 'safe' for no shipping, since there's no romance tag, 'I am that is'. Personally, I LIKE good shipping, but the key word is 'good', and, honestly, I find that hard to do so w/o M/F casting... XD

>>1196347 The Frocobo has indeed spoken... AND FROCOBO SAYS YES! (If you dun know the Frocobo, then I feel sorry for you! XD)

Welcome to parenthood. Population you. :applejackconfused::raritydespair::pinkiegasp::fluttershyouch::rainbowhuh::facehoof:

>>1194378 Baby 1: white unicorn with blond mane= Rarity and AJ. Baby 2: pure pink pegasus= Fluttershy and pinkie. Baby 3: violet pegacorn/alicorn with rainbow mane= Twilight and RD

Delightful!  Pinkie's concept of a 'naughty' dream alone is worth the thumbs-up.  :pinkiesmile:
