This story is a sequel to Past Sins

Hearth's Warming is a time for friends and family to come together, celebrate harmony, and welcome the new year. Nyx is looking forward to just this as she rides the train to Canterlot with Spike and Twilight. She's going to meet her extended family for the first time and wants nothing more than to make a good impression. Yet, the sheen of the holidays can't hide the trouble caused by meddling grandparents, relentless reporters, and a paranoid uncle.

Oh, heeeellllll yeah.

At first I thought the title was "Winter Balls."

THIRD! Don't banish me to the moon.

Fvae before read. :pinkiehappy:

I want to punch the downvoter. Like, not really, but still.

>>1844617 Dammit, one second before I loaded the page. :rainbowlaugh: You troll. :rainbowwild:

>>1844624 *Third.

Seven likes, one dislike, ten faves, five comments... and one view.

Look before you leap, people!

This be mighty kind of you, Pen. Thanks & Happy Holidays!

... Crap, now I have to decide if I'll read it as it comes out, or wait for it to be done! Gah! I hate decisions!

*Wanders off to go flip a bit*

Ten likes, but one view? Do people even read anymore?

Lol the Viewcounter is broken i already read it and it's still 1

You guys are up voting before reading? For real? Is this what we do here on fimfiction now,rate a story before its read?

I mean this in no insult to pen but guys that's plain biased...

And that goes for any other author this happens to..

it feels like...

'Ah look! *insert author name here* has a new story! -insta fave and insta up vote- Ill read it later but I know it will deserve those!!'

:facehoof:

Flames will follow, i'm positive of this and I could care less.

And this is where Pen Stroke blows Nyx's Family completely out of any chance of being canon to Nyx's universe.  I'll just see it as two separate timelines or universes.

Nyx going out to help select wood for the traditional Hearth's Warming fire.  Hm.  Call the fire department now, it will save time  :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

OMFG!!!! NOT A ONE SHOT????? AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME!!!!!!!!!!! :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

Yes yes yes yes more Nyx!

YesYesYes. New Nyx story. :pinkiehappy:  (instant fave and upvote because I know this is gonna be good)

:yay: *yay*

Yay, new official Nyx story.  Still, gonna be sad that this'll probably invalidate at least part of 'Nyx's Family.'  

Oh, look. Another Nyx story by Pen Stroke. Who'da thunk it?

Yes! This is perfect and one of the Nyx stories I have been waiting to be written.

Now I wait for next Chapter.

It's still way too early for Christmas presents.:heart:

Ya just couldn't stay away from Nyx, could ya Pen Stroke?

>>1844703 Well it is tagged as an Alternate Universe, so yeah, I see it like you do, too.

>>1844752

Canon story will be way better than that, even if Nyx' Family started good. Doesn't mean I won't stop reading it, but Pen Stroke knows everything about Nyx' character, as opposed to RealityCheck :twilightblush:

Epic cliff hanger.

hmm... I couldn't help but notice that this story was kinda similar to one I read from an independent author a while ago, he even had the part where Nyx brainwashed Shinning armor.

A Nyx Christmas. Now this is something worthy of being read.

Spike took Night LIght’s hoof in his claw and gave it a shake, laughing as he said, “more than you know.”

* Light's

Twilight had a gut feeling that the something was wrong. I

*that  I think you meant to say that.

More. Now. These feels are addictive.

Shining: Mom, you're oddly accepting of Twilight adopting the boogeymare.

Velvet: Well I don't see you pumping us out grandchildren, now do I?

Another Nyx multi-chapter story by you? SWEET! :yay:

All my yes, moar please!:pinkiehappy:

She just wanted them all to be able to share a Happy Hearth’s Warming.

Things are going to go horribly wrong aren't they?

>>1844879  Strangly enough I can see that exchange.  Also Can't wait to see more Pen Stroke.  

Cliff hangers... you mother fu- *DEAD*

I had a feeling you were going to do a hearth warming story with Nyx.

Some things I noticed were some grammar mistakes, might want to go over it one more time, easy stuff to fix.

Loved the chapter and love me some more Nyx. anxiously awaiting the next chapter. :twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

More nyx from the actual actor? And multiable chapters? That is awesome. Anyway, merry Christmas. And happy new year.

I saw a Night Life in there somewhere...

Liking it so far.

Incidentally, the title makes me think of Carol of the Bells. This chapter requires accompanying Christmas music!

A chaptered past sins side story?

Also, braytish accent? I don't get it. I've googled it and it's not a horse pun, so what is it? Is it a misspelling?

I hope there will be more side stories like this in the far future! I also always smile when i read these, don't know why.

thank you for this Christmas present, I hope the second chapter is soon.

Ohmigosh a Hearth's Warming story with Nyx! :pinkiehappy:

Well, So far everything looks more or less fine, although i wonder if those reporters are gonna come back eventually; they don't seem like the type to just give up a major story.

Also, I'm glad that Nyx's Grandparents don't seem too suspicious of her, even If they'd rather have Twilight get someone else to raise her :facehoof:

And I really hope that Shining will learn to love (or at least tolerate) his new niece. :fluttershysad:

DAMN YOU CLIFF HANGERS!

>>1845237Braying is a sound donkeys make

>>1845237

Braying

't be a donkey pun.

Donkeys don't be getting enough love in this here fandom i tells ye!

Also yayy, more adorable alicorn filly!:twilightsmile:

>>1844724 well she IS CMC:twilightoops: so thats probably not that bad of a idea

also kinda interesting that the only real misgivings that Twilights parents have about Twilight raising Nyx is the single mother aspect
