    In the End, These Things Matter Most

    So I've published a new story, again based in the Kilalaverse and starring my favorite character, Princess Nidra! Well, kind of. It's more from the point of view of Turquoise Blitz's children, Apollo and Oasis, at least from the first chapter. However, the story is mainly focused on T and Ni becoming an actual couple. It starts out right after one of Kilala's short stories that goes with her artwork, Moving On, in which T and Nidra discuss the possibilities of having a relationship. They don't really officially become a couple, but basically leave it open as a possibility. And T mentions he should tell his kids, which was kind of the original inspiration for doing this. I like the idea of his kids, already senior citizens by now even if they age slower due to their draconic heritage, having to cope with him finally looking for a new mare after their mother died. Hopefully, I portrayed them both well with what little was provided of their personalities from their bios. The first chapter is mainly antics, of course, but the second chapter should flesh things out a little more. I should wrap everything up by the third chapter. I mean, if I don't, my theme naming thing wouldn't work out so well, would it?

    Penultimate Atlas Strongest Tournament chapter

    Soon...

    I'm actually done writing; just waiting on editing and doing some illustrations for it. It only took a couple days when I finally got down to it after working on some other projects. I really want to finish this fic up, though. Get ready for a real royal rumble.

    Stuff Happened, But Still Updating

    My updates have been pretty sparse lately, though I finally updated Head of a Dog; Tail of a Lion after quibbling over it for a while. So, to make a long story short, I have a new house back in the States and I'm now stationed in South Korea for a year. Yay. Seems like I'll be working longer hours and dealing with a lot more humbug than is usual for the Army, so I'm really not 100% sure how that will affect my little writing hobby. Hopefully not too profoundly. In addition, I'm totally getting into the Kung Fu Panda Tipo ship after watching the movies and shorts before I came to ROK, so I might end up doing something with that. I may even, dare I say, do a crossover with MLP.

    Warning to Writers

    So I've lost about two weeks of time to work on my own stuff. Why? Because a certain user decided to commission me for a fanfic and not compensate me at all. If you want to read in more detail, you can check out my Tumblr post about it. For the TL;DR version, don't take a commission unless they pay half up front.

    Spike and Rarity's Bogus Date Night

    So the first clop of the Kilalaverse has now been completed. I came into it with the intent of making a funny, cute, and sexy story about Rarity and Spike being married. There are a lot of fics that have their first time or otherwise quite early in their relationship, presumably because people find that more exciting (and they aren't in a relationship in the show, of course, so feel the need to explain that they are in one). Hopefully, I've shown the trials and tribulations, as well as the rewards, of married sex. Coincidentally, as I was writing the third chapter my wife had a pregnancy test which came out positive. I'm not getting a vasectomy, though (at least, not yet).

This story is a sequel to Somebody to Love

The Atlas Strongest Tournament is a tradition which stretches back to the beginning of the history of the Atlantean continent, and this year Princess Luna is officiating the tournament. Rarity receives a visit from her old Spinese master as young Scootaloo enters the tournament. Meanwhile, Darkness is gathering as the Queen of the Changelings begins her own secret plans for revenge against Twilight Sparkle and Ponyville.

Good ideia for a story,  lets see how will be go.

I'm enjoying this story so far, and I'm rooting for Rarity to take it to Ran for her nonsense.  Also, maybe its just me but I can't help but see a little bit of Kim Possible and Yori in their relationship dynamic.

>>1447488 I may have borrowed a bit of Yori's speech pattern for Ran, but while the dynamic may appear similar on the surface, it's actually a bit more complicated... you'll find out what I mean later.:ajsmug:

Due to some classes I'm taking for my Master's degree (and an unfortunate lack of popularity of this story compared with my other), I'll be updating less often: weekly rather than three times a week as I have been. Hopefully, life won't take more of my time than needed for that, because I have much more about which I want to write.

Tom as a surprise combatant?  Nice work.  I am surprised to see so many of the 'big' matches to be resolved so early in the tournament, especially since Lao Wu is going to be facing either his great granddaughter or his student, and my money is on student personally, in only the second round.  

It took me awhile to decide how the fights were going to progress, and I attempted to put in as many fights that I would deem important for the major characters as I could at all levels. I'm going to make sure it doesn't get stale later on... especially since the changelings have yet to reveal their plan.

Oh, the innuendos... :rainbowlaugh:

Another great chapter...

Can't wait to see Rariy's match. Another great chapter. :)

Rarity probably feels like a real asshole, right now. No offense intended to asses, of course.

So, yeah, my updates are going to be sporadic for a month or so, which makes me feel just horrible, really. I am looking to see if I can find a good beta reader which I've never used before, so if anyone thinks they have the chops or knows anyone who might be willing, drop me a line.

Well, that was a surprising end to the question of what actually happened back then.  Really didn't expect, well, any of that honestly.  I really liked Twilight's excitement for the possibility of solving friendship problems too.

Oh, fuck! I want another chapter!:derpytongue2:

>>1945593 I still have some things to wrap up, but it'll be coming soon.

I see you have summoned me.

FINALLY!!!!

It is wonderful to see this fic once again updated, WITH PICTURES THIS TIME!!! The wait was so very worth it. Thank you for the new chapter, and I hope another is on the way.

Well, I came here hoping for Sparity....

Ended up with.... Something else entirely..

>>2173251 I'm a horrible ship-tease, I know. Don't worry, I'll make sure you get fed.

ayh

Wow, great to see you updating this so quickly.  Really confused about the last part but I can't wait to see what happens next.

ayh

Wow, that was incredible.  

Why do I have the feeling that Tom the Rock will be the undisputed hero of this story?

>>2245240

Tom the Rock, inspiring young pebbles everywhere to grow to their true potential.

On a side note, ever wonder what Rarity's reaction would be if she found our that Tom was a geode?

>>2245368

She'd probably make some outstanding play costumes out of him. After all, that's what she did to HIS FATHER!

Wait, did you just change Twilight into an alicorn in this chapter? Did you at least go back through the previous chapters and change them so it fits?

>>2245789

Yep. Doesn't change the story thus far since her appearances were limited, and makes the rest of the story easier to justify. I explained it a few weeks ago in my blog.

>>2245473

Ironically, if I hadn't been posting from my smartphone, I was going to put that exact link in mine. I'll just have to settle for this:

>>2246570

Excuse me fellow pony, I do believe I must die of laughter at this moment.

We need to have a revived Tom just show up with a ton of defeated Changelings around him...and have nopony question it at all.

...I don't get the joke. Sorry, I guess it doesn't translate well.

Oh, god! AJ gotten very hardy.

I wonder, how will go think Scootaloo and Rarity when found that Wavedancer drakenapped Spike and she stay to kiss him in time of your fight?  

>>2351162

I'm sure they'd be most unappreciative.

Spike is a real mare magent ain't he?:moustache:

>>2351371

Spike doesn't have a mustache. He is a mustache.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...:derpyderp1:

Well, that's not good.  So I suppose the question is whether Luna was captured and replaced, and if so when this happened, or if she let Chrysalis take her place as part of her plan?

Will Rarity die?

>>2466892

It would kill the suspension a bit if I told you, wouldn't it?:raritywink:

OK, this is supposed to be comedy, not tragedy, so I assume Rarity isn't actually dead... I see things have gone badly wrong for the changelings, anyway.

>>2497227

Hey, you don't know. I could pull a fast one and change tags next chapter for a sneaky twist. Nah, remember that she's surrounded by changelings who want her alive (yes, I just spoiled it for you). I do wish there were an Action tag, though, 'cause I think that label is a bit more honest than Slice of Life or Adventure, and would set up the expectation for crazy stuff like this. I'm going for Dragonball style violence, not Higurashi: When They Cry, after all. You know, for the kids.

At the end Chrysalis says yes you is

:scootangel:

>>2497616 speaking of dragonball this is auspiciously like their first (goku+krillin) world martial arts tourny(though its not anywhere near a copy or anything), well up untill the changelings

Wow typos, meh thats what I get for using a phone

>>2504100

I was thinking of the Tenkaichi Budoukai, specifically, when coming up with the basic idea of this, so it's no surprise that it would remind someone of the first one in Dragonball. Of course, I also had a lot of other influences, such as the Dark Tournament from Yu Yu Hakusho, the Chuunin Exam from Naruto, and the countless other tournament arcs that seem obligatory in every shonen manga, ever. You'll probably pick up those influences, as well, but I also wanted to be as faithful to the characters and show as possible even while putting them in what would be a pretty bizarre situation in the context of the actual show, so that it would still come off as natural.

>>2504535 yeah I could sense some of the others in there , and I mostly thought of DB cause. Of the way everyone went for seperate training.
