#8 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#9 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

YES!

#11 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

Because Wall paper!  

#12 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

HAHA!

Excellent!

Finally! It's on fimfiction! Triple yay! :yay:

#14 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#15 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#16 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#17 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#18 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#19 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · 1 ·

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 · Chapter 1 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

Daaawwwwwww.^_^

#21 · Chapter 8 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#22 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#23 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

>>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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

>>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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

Lovely :pinkiesmile:

#26 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

Mother of Celestia, you put this here...

#27 · Chapter 1 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

great story

#28 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

yay! such a wonderful story thanks :twilightsmile:

#29 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

>>137220

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

bend it to your will ^^

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#32 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

THE FUN HATH BEEN DOUBLED!

#33 · Chapter 1 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#34 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#35 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#36 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

YES! XD

#37 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 2d ago · · ·

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

#38 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

finally on FIMFiction !

#41 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

YAAAAY YOU POSTED IT ON FANFICTION :pinkiehappy:

#42 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

>>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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#45 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#46 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

Yay ! I loved this fic' !

#47 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

: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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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 · Chapter 17 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

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