    Announcing The Mailbox: Reloaded

    Howdy, folks!

    So, last summer I was involved in an experimental collaborative project called The Mailbox.  For The Mailbox, I played the role of Twilight Sparkle while she was away from Ponyville for the summer, writing letters to her friends while they were also off on their own, private adventures.  The rest of the mane six were played by other writers, and overall, everyone had a pretty good time of it.

    Well, we decided to do it again this year, with a new story picking up after Season Four and featuring a somewhat altered cast for the characters.  Here is this year's cast of characters:

    Applejack will be played by bookplayer

    Rainbow Dash will be played by Jake R

    Rarity will be played by TheLastBrunnenG

    Pinkie Pie will be played by JaketheGinger

    Fluttershy will be played by Peroth E

    and as stated, I will reprise my role as Twilight

    This year, we plan on compiling letters as they're written and releasing a weekly recap, arranged in semi-chronological order (subject to wiggling order around for readability here and there) and releasing as a chaptered story to the site, which I've agreed to host.  The summer starts, at least for the mane six, this Monday.  Join the group, The Mailbox: Reloaded to follow along in real time, and/or stay tuned for next week when the first chapter of letters will be posted to a story.

    I had a blast writing Twilight last year, and I'm very much looking forward to doing it all again with some added twists.  Last year, bookplayer and I discovered we had a certain affinity for writing TwiJack together, so we thought it would be interesting to start this year's Mailbox off with the two of them already in a relationship, so we can tell a different sort of romance story than a get-together with our characters.  And even if you aren't keen on TwiJack, we should have plenty to read about as all six embark to different ends of the world, as told by a cast of extremely talented writers (and also me :P).  I hope you join in on the fun.


    For those who follow my production blogs, I opted not to do a formal one this week in exchange for making this announcement.  Rest assured, I am still writing, and not just prepping letters for this collab.  Hopefully, you'll be seeing something new pop up this week or next in addition to The Mailbox: Reloaded.

    TTFN.

I feel you could have done without the last two lines, but hey...

Despite the occasional error, this was pretty damn good job anyway!!:twilightsmile::rainbowdetermined2:

#3 · 91w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

Loved it! Nice work!

#4 · 91w, 6d ago · 2 · 7 ·

I shall read this at a later time ^.^ comments make me want to read.

#5 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Hahahahaaha this is one of the more amusing and adorable twidash fics I've read in a while! Here's hoping you do well in that contest my good writer!

PS - Have a mustache or three :moustache::moustache::moustache:

#6 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Oh bats, u so silly :rainbowkiss:

#7 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

It was cute and funny!

I like it! :moustache:

#8 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Well, that was awkward, escalated quickly, stupid and sexy. :rainbowkiss: You earned a thumb.

#9 · 91w, 6d ago · 2 · 2 ·

No! It is middle school!

I liked this.

:twilightsmile:

#10 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Very good! I love light-hearted Twidash!

#11 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Had fun reading it

thanks for writing it  

#12 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

That was very good. I love twidash. feeling kind of at a loss for words, I suppose its because the fic truly speaks for itself, and it says good things.

#13 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Great story, like it.  :twilightsmile::rainbowkiss:

#14 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

I would love to see more of this vary good "the game is a hoof":twilig:rainbowlaugh:htsmile:

#15 · 91w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

Ohhhh funny and cute, its funte    ...or cunny? whatever, a good one indeed

and as always nicely done

#16 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Loved it :twilightsmile::rainbowdetermined2:

A nice way to start my day.

#17 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

Witty, smart, sensible, I like it. The way you spoofed Holmes was amazing and hilarious. :rainbowdetermined2:Awesomeness approved, dear sir.

#18 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

I had a lot of fun reading this. Some of the best TwiDash I've read in a while.

#19 · 91w, 6d ago · 2 · 1 ·

That was very well written :pinkiesmile: I loved how it all was a misunderstanding :rainbowlaugh: I just could imagine how crazy Twilight got when the magnifying glass was lost :rainbowlaugh: At the end it was very cute how you got them together :twilightsmile: well done.

#20 · 91w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1967771

Yeah, sure ya do. :ajbemused:

#21 · 91w, 6d ago · 5 · 1 ·

I found one pretty major problem in your story:

It's tagged 'complete'

Please correct this as soon as possible.

:rainbowwild::twilightsmile:

#22 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1969709

:rainbowlaugh:

This shall remain a standalone story.  However, if an idea strikes me that I can't ignore, I may write more stories in this same continuity.  Detective spoofs are kinda sorta extremely fun to write.  And I can't get away with only writing Twidash hook-up fics; we need to get some already together stories up in here!

#23 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Well done.

#24 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Well, I certainly had a fun time reading it. The moment where they found out what happened was priceless!

#25 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

... That was pretty good. *Clicks like*

#26 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

This was very good, it had a believable (and hilarious) premise, the characters were well done, and the events felt well paced and well described.

#28 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1969706

>> Subsolar Drift

Yeah, sure ya do.

This had me rolling :rainbowlaugh:

#29 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

And they lived happily ever after! :twilightsmile::heart::rainbowkiss:

#30 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Twi actually reminded me of the Holmes from the new movies. Nice.

#31 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

That was perfect, oh my! :raritystarry: Very fun to read, I could only imagine the ambition you must have felt when you crafted this story :twilightsmile:

#32 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1969706 :twilightoops: Well played.

#34 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

your doing Coming Back? awsome I hadn't notice you were the same author. I love that fanfic. keep it up.

#35 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh god this was hilarious.  Is it wierd that I expected it to be Pinkie giving them something with a dilluted form of the love poison?

But the misinterpretation driving them crazy, and then that reveal at the end!  You have been faved!

#37 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Star ... check

Thumb up ... check

:twilightsmile::rainbowlaugh:

#38 · 91w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Twilight dies at the end?! How could you, you monster! I thought this was a light-hearted comedy romp!

#39 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1971952

Yup, she dies everyone dies eventually.

#40 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

This was awesome, very cute. There are so many Dark/Gory/Mature/Sex/Etc... stories out there that I really missed stories like this. Ones where the girls just get to be themselves and do cute stuff. :twilightsmile:

#41 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1972148

Celestia, Luna, and probably Cadence don't.

#42 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Hilarious:rainbowlaugh:

#43 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

A very mysterious and compromising position? ME LIKEY! *Read later*

#44 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

:rainbowkiss:

#45 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

So...Awesome....:rainbowkiss:

#46 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Saw the resolution (that nothing had happened between them) coming from a mile away, but that's the pleasure of this story, isn't it? It's the journey, not the destination that matters.

I loved that they went through town and visited all their friends, finding out about different adventures at every turn. The real mystery for me ended up being why they were watching one another so closely. Wondered if Pinkie had drugged them.

Thanks for sharing such a pleasurable story with us :pinkiehappy:

#47 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

I haz giggles:pinkiehappy:

#48 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

At least this didn't end with Twilight falling off of a roof.

#49 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

awwe thats so cuuute

and Twilight brush your mane :ajbemused::pinkiehappy::twilightsmile:

#50 · 91w, 5d ago · · ·

Saw it coming a mile away, but that doesn't mean I am disappointed, far from it. This was a well put together story. A sequel would be quite funny, with the explanation and all coming into play.

Spike glanced up from the pile of books he was sorting.  “Oh hey, Twilight!  I was wondering where you went off to.  When you came in last night you asked me to remind you about the note you tucked behind your ear.”

Twilight’s eye twitch was back.

I was just thinking about death stares at that point, I think Twilight must have looked a bit like this:
