Spike only wants things to stay the same. Time, however, has other ideas. He's going to need a lot of help... An everypony story.

I read the entire thing over at Fanfiction.net, amazing story! You are an incredibly talented author :twilightsmile:

#9 · 189w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·

This may be my favourite story about Spike. May also be my favourite time-skip story. Thank you so much for bringing this here! :yay:

#10 · 189w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·

YES!

#11 · 189w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Because Wall paper!  

#12 · 189w, 22h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Huge fan! Cannot wait to see more of your work in the future!

#15 · 189w, 22h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Holy hell! The newspaper article in the previous chapter... So... Awesome...

#16 · 189w, 22h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Hey, glad to see this uploaded here - it's one of my favorites. :eeyup:

#17 · 189w, 22h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Just finished the first part! It has me hooked. :)

#18 · 189w, 22h ago · · · Epilogue ·

What took you so long to post this here, anyway? :trollestia: *Five Star, Fav, Track, Watch*

#19 · 189w, 22h ago · 2 · 2 · Epilogue ·

In cannon, spike would not grow with time, as dragons grow by collecting things, (as observed in 'secret to my exess) also He wouldnt have wings because he's an earth dragon.:twilightoops:

HOWEVER:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

The great thing about fanfiction is that you can throw cannon out the window if you so choose. IF and only if, its in the cause for a better story.

And this I can tell, IS A GOOD BUCKIN' STORY.:eeyup:

#20 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Daaawwwwwww.^_^

#21 · 189w, 21h ago · 1 · · Chapter 8 ·

Haaa! :eeyup: I get the reference to Dr. Livingstone. Clever clever clever.

#22 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>137188

Thanks! All that formatting for the articles in Chapters 6 and 16 sure took forever, but I think it was worth it!

#23 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>137220

Yup, and I do address that in Chapter 14 (I started this fic loooong before Secret of My Excess was aired). Hooray for fanon! Hope you enjoy!

#24 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>137218

Laziness, probably! (Also I've never used bbcode before, and formatting the newspaper articles ended up being a bit of a hassle, let alone all the italics I insist on using, SIGH.) Thanks for commenting!

#25 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Ah, brilliant!  I loved this story, and now you've graced fimfiction with its presence.  

Lovely :pinkiesmile:

#26 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Mother of Celestia, you put this here...

#27 · 189w, 21h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

great story

#28 · 189w, 20h ago · · · Epilogue ·

yay! such a wonderful story thanks :twilightsmile:

#29 · 189w, 20h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>137220

I would say, more that throw the canon in a cannon, :pinkiehappy:

bend it to your will ^^

#30 · 189w, 19h ago · 1 · · Epilogue ·

Determamfidd:  Just want to say that you've been a big inspiration to me.  I hope that I can do pillar community authors like you justice in my own writing.  Anyone can put words in a character's mouth, but your dialogue resounds with the wisdom of a sharp-eyed humanist, and a person worth learning from.  It's this promise of deeper truths that sucks a reader into a novel faster than any action or fancy description.  The emotions in this story are real and authentic.  The humor is clever.  The advice that the mentor characters give is good advice, not just obvious advice.  Spike makes a charming and admirable hero.  This story is entertaining, unpredictable, and thought provoking.  But most importantly, it is true.    :raritywink:

#31 · 189w, 18h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Yay! One of my favourite stories is now on FiMfiction!

#32 · 189w, 18h ago · · · Epilogue ·

THE FUN HATH BEEN DOUBLED!

#33 · 189w, 18h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Yes!  Read this via the fanfiction archives, but much easier to keep tagged here.  :pinkiehappy:

#34 · 189w, 17h ago · · · Epilogue ·

I squealed when I first saw this here. :heart:

#35 · 189w, 17h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Finally on FIMfiction??? Is it possible to give 6 stars if I tried hacking the system??

#36 · 189w, 16h ago · · · Epilogue ·

YES! XD

#37 · 189w, 15h ago · · · Epilogue ·

I'm glad you put this up on fimfiction, it's one of my favorite MLP stories. :pinkiehappy:

#38 · 189w, 15h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Fantastic! Now I can 5 star it!

This is an exemplary work of fanfiction, any aspiring fanfic writer should stop here and read this a couple times.

#39 · 189w, 15h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Good to see this one on fimfiction. However, in regards to the character tags, shouldn't you include OC? There are quite a few of those in the story, and some of them are quite central to it.

#40 · 189w, 15h ago · · · Epilogue ·

finally on FIMFiction !

#41 · 189w, 13h ago · · · Epilogue ·

YAAAAY YOU POSTED IT ON FANFICTION :pinkiehappy:

#42 · 189w, 12h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>137331

Oh my...!

Thank you so much, that is one of the loveliest things anyone has ever said about my writing. I am so flattered and bashful, and so immensely happy that you enjoyed it and that it touched you. Seriously, thank you! I am blushing like a furnace here!

:twilightblush: Hee, I finally got off my flank and formatted it for FIMFiction! I did promise, after all! Thanks for all the comments, and I'm so happy to see so many familiar names! OHAI U GUISE

>>137635

Good point! It was selected initially, but I was asked by the Site Gods to select fewer characters (I think the only one who doesn't turn up at some point is Twist) so I unselected it. I'll see if I can't fix that.

#44 · 189w, 12h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Read this as it was posted on EqD, probably one of my favorite series of all time. :heart:

#45 · 189w, 11h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Yes! now I get to read it again! I love this story.

#46 · 189w, 10h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Yay ! I loved this fic' !

#47 · 189w, 10h ago · · · Epilogue ·

:pinkiegasp:

Its here, its here, ITS HERE!!!!!!!

:yay: :yay: :yay:

This is the best Spike centric story on the internet, in my opinion. The only problem I have with the story is that it ended, but all things must eventually.

#48 · 189w, 10h ago · · · Epilogue ·

Long awaited, this has been. Happy to have caught it.

Amazing story, even moreso now that I can read it once more.

You are an artist the likes of which has not been seen for too long.:twilightsmile:

I still think the saddest part is that it ended. I'll be Watching you.:scootangel:

#49 · 189w, 9h ago · · · Epilogue ·

I'll add my voice to those who love this fic.  I think I'm most impressed with how you handled the issues of greed and possessiveness to turn them into positive traits. That was really refreshing to read.

#50 · 189w, 9h ago · · · Epilogue ·

I adored this fic, and I'm more excited than I have any right to be to see it here.
