    Story updates and an extension of the contest

    First up, the contest for a free copy of Frozen Synapse is being extended because I want more than one entry (no offense to Domzori). The contest is simple: come up with a reasonable story for how FLuttershy and Fleur started dating that's more complex than "We met while Fluttershy was a model and started dating after she quit." Feel free to post your ideas below.

    Also, story updates:

    1. Photo Shy got an update, simply called "Oh No!" because my original title idea of "I, Photo Finish, have made a terrible mistake!" made no sense. Expect more updates to it, as long as I remain stuck on Luna Looks For Love.

    2. The Return of Mr. Bun's final chapter is ready for publication, but I'm not sure it's a good idea to publish two story updates in the same day, so that'll be up tomorrow.

    3. My rule 63 in the Crystal Empire idea has a completed (but too short) prologue, but no title (to be fair, I'm terrible with titles). The prologue won't be published on its own because it's too short (816 or so words), and exists largely to explain why Fancy and Fleur are going to the empire with the mane six. Rule 63 kicks in in the first chapter.

    One year anniversery of the first time a Flutter de Lis story was ever marked complete and a contest for a free copy of Frozen Synapse

    This nearly slipped my mind, but I remembered, before I got engrossed in the latest chapter of one of the stories I'm following. Anyway, remember Shortly before Christmas, 2012 when a little story called "The Model Caretaker" was published by an author who probably had about 30 or 40 followers tops and nothing really unique to his name? Well, it was finished one year ago today, after becoming my first story to have over 100 likes. It's still one of my most popular but since then it's set a trend for me, a trend of doing what I feel like doing regardless of what's popular (admittedly that includes a couple more Flutter de Lis stories, but I'm working on other concepts, such as Photo Shy and, in the planning stages, a Celestia x Fluttershy story).

    Anyway, to celebrate this milestone, and save poor Zyr a bit of work, a short contest. The winner receives my free extra copy of Frozen Synapse. If you don't know it's essentially an online TBS where you and your opponents control otherwise mindless beings and have them try to kill each other. It's surprisingly deep and complex, and all you have to do to get one free copy (a 25 dollar value. You get a free copy when you buy one. There's still 17 hours left in the sale if you'd rather spend 5 bucks for it) is this: My next story involving the couple of Fluttershy and Fleur de Lis starts with them in a relationship (and has some rule 63 shenanigans, but that's for later) but I can't decide how they met or started dating. That's where you come in. What I want is an idea for how they met and began dating that is at least a bit more complex than "we met while Fluttershy was a model and I asked her out not long after she quit" and leaves Fancypants as around Fleur's age and on friendly terms with her and Fluttershy's friends (because he will have his own romantic subplot and I don't want to ruin it by turning him into a bastard).

    By the way, I did start a group dedicated to the pairing I turned from an oddity in a singe incomplete story to an interesting concept spanning multiple stories. If you're interested, Here's the [=http://www.fimfiction.net/group/200904/flutter-de-lis]link[/url].

    (Side note, the final chapter of The Return Of Mr. Bun is done and awaiting proofreading. Expect it within a week. Also, if you want to play me in Frozen Synapse, my username is the same as it is here).

    Edit; Just noticed that I said this would be about one of those half-baked ideas I mentioned. Oops. I blame lack of sleep, but still, what I was originally thinking of, looking back, I didn't really need help with. I was just being a mild derp.

    Good news about my writing and bad news about Luna Looks for Love

    A bunch of authors of stories I follow are doing this, so I might as well do so myself.

    I'll start with the bad news: I'm not really sure how to move forward with LLfL at the moment. I had an idea, but it fell apart when I thought about how to execute it (though I think the problem is more "needs more time in the oven" than anything. Now if only half a dozen other ideas didn't also want that time in the oven), which, of course has been a constant problem since the death of my grandfather late last year, taking all the steam out of my writing, and some stories (this one) haven't been able to recover very much of that steam. It seems based on the complexity of the story (the rather simple "The return of Mr. Bun recovered extremely easily for example, whereas this one has struggled to get back to moving forward).

    Honestly I don't know when I'll be able to get back to work on it, and I apologize about that, but I will find a way to get back to writing it at some point, I promise.

    Now for the good news: I've finally found a way to solve my "too many ideas bouncing around my head" problem, which will help with the above: Evernote. I've always been a terrible note taker, I admit, so jotting own my ideas never seemed great to me. However, when I jotted down three of my five ideas in Evernote, my head cleared up finally. (the other two are so half-baked they're worth leaving in my head). One was stubborn enough that I was forced to partly write out the first chapter to get it out but now my head is free to work on other projects than the ones that as yet are completely unwritten.

    BTW, check here tomorrow to help me with one of those half-baked ideas and have the chance to win a $25 Steam game. Also, it will be the first anniversary of the first ever completion of a Flutter de Lis story.

Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are asked to meet Princess Luna early one morning, and are told that Luna needs their help to regain the last of the power she lost when she was banished to the moon.

On the way, Rainbow Dash tries to deal with her feelings for Fluttershy, feelings that she never knew she had, while Fluttershy must decide on what she would like as a reward for undergoing this quest.

One day of writing, remembering Luna's hugging of Fluttershy in Luna Eclipsed, and an idea to do something that wasn't a one shot produced this. If it goes over well, then I'll probably continue.

Also, if I do continue, Fluttershy will get more focus. I just imagined Rainbow Dash as being the more proactive one when it came to dealing with Luna in their initial meeting.

*reads desciption*

Possible Flutterdash, eh...?

:trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright:

*reads*

Pretty good, I'll fave.

WRITE ON!

Awesomeness. I wish there was more, but oh well. Favoriting, will keep an eye on it. :yay:

Seems interesting. Will be watching this. Usually, the thing with stories having Luna using the royal we puts me off, but the potential of this story is keeping me on this.

This is posting into every group I'm in so I might as well give it a go. :ajbemused:

An adventure, seeking some items or whatever, led by Luna, and some FlutterDash? :pinkiegasp:

DO WANT! :pinkiehappy:

Seriously though, you definitely have my attention. This looks to be an interesting story, to be sure. I'll definitely track this. :yay: And for the record, Rainbow Dash being protective of Fluttershy, that's just awesome. She definitely would be. :twilightsmile:

>>1487976 >>1488701 Thanks for the comments. It's always good to hear praise for your writing:twilightsmile:

>>1489013 Personally, I find the royal we to be kind of endearing, but to each their own. Also, expect Luna to try to beak her habit of using it in future chapters. I'm still deciding whether she will succeed.

>>1490420 Thanks for the comment, and indeed, I always thought Rainbow would be very protective of her old friend, especially after what we've seen of their time at flight camp.

Also, I'll definitely be continuing this, but, despite being fast from inspiration to paper (24 hours to get this one done, most end up taking about 12), I... may not have thought about the general narrative outside of major scenes and themes :twilightblush:. I blame this on not knowing how well this idea would go over (if it ended up being very disliked, then there wasn't a hell of a lot of reason to continue. I write to entertain more than anything), so it may take a while to find a general narrative that I'm satisfied with. If it takes more than a month, however, feel free to smack me with a skillet.:rainbowwild:

Edit: I played around with the first paragraph, as it read a bit awkwardly before.

>>1491036 Hey, we all sometimes need to be able to experiment with the kind of writing and narrative we like. So take your time! But yeah, a month? I might just have to persuade you with chocolate. :pinkiehappy:

>>1491036

Oh no, that's alright. Do whatever you feel is necessary. I'm willing to bypass the whole royal we thing, and just focus on the story.

>>1491322

A month isn't that long... I'm currently writing something that's taking me a while to come up with stuff. Could be writer's block, I guess.

Looks pretty good. I'll keep reading as well.

I figured, since I just finished my first try at chapter two, I would give a status update.

It came together nicely enough, but I'm not all that satisfied with the beginning. The middle and about 2/3s of the end could be used as is to my satisfaction (though there is one contrived coincidence that I hope to eliminate, but it's no biggie) but the beginning, and a few parts of the end are a bit soft as is. I'll start a second pass tomorrow, and see if I can't fix those issues.

Also, because the characters themselves fascinate me to a large degree and I'm in my element when writing them, it focuses heavily on them and their relationships to each other, as well as some of the typical challenges of wilderness survival, with a bit less focus on humor.

Oh, and it's not often when I'm writing that I tear up, but that's what happens when you write something that touches on some of your old, deep wounds.

Edit: Also, I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the dialogue to the detriment of everything else in this go around. Gotta work on that

Well, new chapter is up, and I'm satisfied with it, as it sets up a number of things down the road to my liking, while still working for the best. Just a few things to mention:

I am never writing a story where bullying is even mentioned again. Just thinking about it brought back some very painful memories of middle school, and made it hard to write.:fluttercry:

There's a very good reason Fluttershy's feelings towards Rainbow Dash are being kept a bit vague. The next chapter will explain it.

The next chapter may take a while because I'm trying to decide whether this will be five or seven chapters. I will say that it ends not long after Luna gets the vessel, because writing the return trip makes no sense to me. If it's five, then the next chapter will include two key scenes, whereas, if it's seven, it will only have one.

If you don't get the whole Rainbow Dash had The Stare used on her, my fanfic "Rainbow Dash Discovers "The Stare"", should explain it, though here it was simply for plot convenience.

Edit: I did a bit of thinking about the next chapter, and remember how Luna spent 1000 years in the moon? Remember how she's trying to catch up to modern culture? Now consider for a second that this is a ship fic between females and luna may not have realized homosexuality is becoming accepted in Equestria. This is gonna be fun to write :rainbowkiss:

YAY CHAPTER :D

Great work  ^_^

I demand moar!

I'm pretty sure that the reason it doesn't recognize "pegasi" as a word is because Pegasus is a name, not a species.

Based on what you said earlier, it sounded like you would make Luna a homophobic...

>>1629862 Earlier, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with Luna, though I was leaning towards homophobia, but In the end, due to a variety of factors, I decided to go with her being bi, because it was a much more interesting direction to take, what with the ideas going through my head. It also ended up being easier, because I really didn't know how to explain a 1000 year out of date goddess' objections to homosexuality, and going with this just simplified matters.

Edit: and I just love explaining why I do things the way I do in my writing.
