I've been writing online for nearly thirty years.  One of these days I might actually get good at it.

They came from different worlds, but they were determined to be together, one way or another.  This is the path they chose.

(This is the second story in the TwiBrush series, beginning with The Sparkle Chronicles and continuing through Somepony New.  Cover art commissioned from Jada.)

I honestly did read your story Sparkle Chronicles and I have only read I think the first chapter of "Somepony New" so to find the transition of the two is actually kind of sweet. I never commented on a story before so you'd be the first one I ever did comment on. Thanks for the saga.. trilogy? Whatever, when your done you'll know what you got. Hope to see more of you in action, later.

Oh, Celestia . . . :twilightsmile:

Thank you for adding this. It smoothed out the transition between your other two works, practically seamlessly. If there were any faults, they evaded my searching eye.

Kudos to you, friend!

There are at least two more chapters in the works here, so don't touch that dial.

Yes! It's finally here! I'll have to read it proper when I get home tonight after work, but... am I excited about a prequel to Somepony New? Heck yes.

LIFE = HAPPY!

That's what we need around here: enthusiasm.  (And a few more greenish thumbs, inasmuch as the red ones are out swarming today.  On t'other hoof, one poor soul got hit with almost 150 downs today, so ignore anything I whine about.)

Chapter 2 is done, except for the One Last Editing Pass, and I'm about 500 words into Chapter 3.

Did I mention One Last Editing Pass?  It's going to take a little longer than that.  I found a plot hole the size of Ghastly Gorge, and of course I berated myself for being a plothole and not seeing it.  (Language extensions, how do they work?)

I am trying, meanwhile, to persuade myself that I haven't already reached Peak Tale and it's all downhill from here.  This endeavor is proving somewhat less successful.

I trust the good doctor has the Midas touch?

(Sorry, I had to say it. The pun universe throws you a softball and you're required to hit it)

I went to a whole lot of trouble to explain that, then cut it for being (1) unnecessary since everybody got the joke and (2) unfunny.

Okay, more (2) than (1). :twilightsheepish:

#9 · Chapter 4 · 96w, 4d ago · · ·

Okay, it's done.  It ends the night before Somepony New begins.  That's about as close as I can get it without digging into Lyra's background.   And to be honest, I thought about ending it after Chapter 3, which despite the pseudoscience lesson ended almost poignantly, but as is often the case, the characters had some more to say, and there were a couple more we hadn't heard from yet.

Forty thousand, three hundred fifty-eight words of a dubious ship.  With an OC, yet.  I'm glad I got it out of my system and on to the screen.

I here admit that I had an idea for a meta-tale, in which Twi reads this mess and casts some horrid spell on me for my effrontery.  I am not, however, about to write it.

Poniponiponi.

Runcible nods firmly, tossing the book onto the ground where it shatters like glass.

"I LIKE IT!"
