    Dat Halloween Fic, Do

    Just a short update.  Kite is still on the backburner for the moment as I work on that earlier-mentioned Halloween fic.  I haven't forgotten about you guys, I promise!  This is more of a teaser to whet your appetite for when you do finally get to find out what happens to Best Bookpony.

    It's coming along nicely.  I'm five chapters in, and the story is falling into my lap as a write it.  This one's been on my mind for a while now, so it's no wonder why.

    I'm hoping to enter it into EqD's Halloween fic contest whenever the info for that rolls around.  I don't know if it'll be anonymous or anything, but I'll keep details under wraps just in case.  All I can say is my writing style for this one is nowhere near my usual.  It's far more dynamic and exploratory.  And that's for the better; I absolutely love how my characters are shining through, much more so than in my other stories.  It's kinda mainstay of authors to say it, but this really is turning out to be my best story yet, both in terms of writing and actual plot development.  (Can you tell I'm excited?  That's definitely a good thing!) If you think Kite so far is a trip down Screwball Lane, this one will have you strumming your lips cross eyed.

    The only asterisk is it'll have some gore to it, which I know some people are averse to.  Those that like gore will be happily satisfied; those that don't shouldn't feel overwhelmed, but you'll want to lock away your jimmies just in case if you happen to read it.

    Lastly, if I can find the inspiration to churn it out in time, I have a merrier one-shot idea in my head, also for Halloween, also under wraps for write-off's sake.  We'll see what the future brings.  Hopefully lots of inspiration and colorful ponies.  Especially the latter.

    EDIT: If you hear hide or tail of said EqD write-off, please tell me.  I'm always late when it comes to news posts and what not.

    Quick Break

    Sorry to those of you following Kite, but I just wanted to let you guys know I'm going on a short hiatus from the story.  (Additional sorries for doing so right after a big cliffhanger (I'm good at doing that, my veteran readers will be more than ready to say).)  It's nothing to do with being burnt out, rather I just have other fics I want to pump out sooner rather than later—specifically two stories in my head I'd like to finish for Halloween, and it's smart to start getting things laid out now.  You might call Kite suitably creepy for the season, but I assure you it's nothing compared to these!  Just sit tight!

... Meter Stick-up-her-rump is totally going to screw with Soot's race,  isn't she? :twilightangry2: RAGE.

Anyways nice story I will track it.

Awesome ^_^

Great fic so far :D

When Rainbow came in to the picture I was like AWWWW YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rainbowdetermined2:

#7 · 142w, 6d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

Rainbow Dash+Scootaloo=Awesomeness!

Awesome job! I'm still wondering who it is that's going to betray scoot?

#9 · 141w, 1d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

:scootangel::scootangel: I love stories about Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash. For some reason they always go well but then again this like my second story that I read that involved them. But You got me hook on this first chapter. I would love to read the next one but I have to go to bed soon and I read your second chapter tomorrow after work. Keep up the good work.:scootangel::scootangel::scootangel:

#10 · 139w, 2d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

Without reading anything further yet, here's my guess: Scoot lost her mother in some accident back in Fillydelphia, and now her dad's overly protective of her.

#11 · 139w, 2d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

Rainbow Dash's a big believer in the "It'll come to you in time!" school of flight teaching, I see. :rainbowdetermined2:

>>162254  :rainbowlaugh:  that was a good one!

Now for my comment on the story...

My first grade teacher was like Mrs. Meter-Stick.  She had the gull to give us homework EVERY VACATION! :twilightangry2: Even summer vacation! :facehoof: Like, it was always a stack of papers the thickness of the Bible! (okay, not THAT many pages, but it was a lot!) I have no idea how she got away with that... And she said that I was gonna have messed-up teeth when I got older (she literally said that. :ajbemused: )  but guess what?  Practically perfect teeth (just one tooth is slightly out of place), and never had braces.  And she was an "old-school" teacher.  Very strict and everything, like Mrs. Meter-Stick.  Just wanted to say all that so I can say that I hate this Meter-stick lady... :twilightangry2:

#13 · 135w, 5d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

OK, so i just finally got a chance to have a look after checking out "Reading Rainbow" and so far, not bad at all and hey, Scootaloo has a father and a home! ...for once XD Amazing to see a story where Scootaloo isn't a lonely orphan for a change.

wouldn't really know if i've had an experience with a teacher like mrs. meterstick coz if i did i would have purposefully erased her from my mind (i can do that, unless i try remembering but im not gonna, lol)

on another note, u should change anxiety to eager (coz anxiety is when something bad is about to happen)

"Meter stick-up-her-rump" reminds me of my 6th grade social studies teacher

#16 · 130w, 3d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

You shouldn't have put in rainbow Dash saying "Hell" because it gives to much of a human effect to it as we have yet to see if they have a god, whether it be mono or polytheistic, and just makes it seem odd. You can replace it with hay or heck. Hay is a bad choice, scatch that. Just helping you excel at what you already do. And what a great story you have written...FIVE STARS FROM ME :pinkiehappy:

#17 · 128w, 4d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

this story is gonna be good!

I love it already and gonna read on.

keep up the good work!:heart::pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss::scootangel:

ow and have 5/5 staches :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

#18 · 128w, 4d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

I keep loving it more and more!

too bad I see that the status is on hiatus.

6/5 staches if tht is even possible :rainbowkiss::scootangel::heart:

But I feel like RD saying "hell" sort of upsets the mood.

yay rewrite... I'll read it soon, maybe when you reach 3 chapters. :scootangel:

#22 · 92w, 1d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

This was on my reading list for awhile, now that you started a re-write I am eagerly awaiting to read it.

#23 · 92w, 1d ago · 3 · · I - Ponyville ·

So wait this is being completely rewritten? That kind of makes me sad. I was looking forward to new chapter, but any activity is a good thing. :pinkiehappy:

#24 · 92w, 1d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

Holy shit, you're alive.

#25 · 92w, 1d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

So.... This is fucking broken.

#26 · 92w, 1d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

Thank God the show went with scootalove after all. And Rainbow Dash as her "sister".

#27 · 92w, 19h ago · 2 · 1 · I - Ponyville ·

Equestria Daily lied! THERE IS NO CHAPTER 16!!!

What happened to all the other chapters?!

AGH! Been waiting so long!:raritydespair:

#28 · 92w, 15h ago · 1 · · I - Ponyville ·

>>1973603>>1974428

Pretty sure it's a re-write, ya nits.

#29 · 91w, 6d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

I discovered too late that chapter 16 had finally been posted. By then you had already taken everything down for your rewrite. Was chapter 16 supposed to be the end? Or will there me more to come after that?

#30 · 91w, 6d ago · · · I - Ponyville ·

*looks at timestamp of first post* Holy crap...it HAS been almost a year since this first came out, hasn't it?:rainbowderp:

#31 · 91w, 2d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

>>1980783

Ironic how EQD posts an update for chapter #17 when only the first two are still up.

#32 · 91w, 1d ago · 1 · · II - First Flight ·

Knowing what's coming makes this so... :fluttercry:

Still, I can't wait for more! :pinkiehappy:

#33 · 91w, 1d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

>>2008393

Great to hear you're excited!  I was hoping my rewrite would help build up the whole relationship thing much better and lead to a stronger *pow* with the you-know-what.

>>1980783

Chapter 16 was never posted.  The guy over at EqD has yet to pay any attention to my emails asking for that to be fixed.

#34 · 90w, 3d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

Nice story. You made it really easy to imagine how scary her first flight was. It's a good thing Scootaloo is a natural flier. I don't think Rainbow Dash would have the patience to teach her otherwise.

There's one thing I've always wondered about Scootaloo. She seems pretty old to not know how to fly, so I always figured there was something wrong with her. You'd think with how much she idolizes Rainbow Dash, she would have tried teaching herself to fly several times already, maybe with the help of the other Crusaders. What's your impression?

#35 · 90w, 3d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

>>2009544

I didn't read it before you took it down to rewrite. So every time I hear about the plot twist it makes the suspense unbearable. I dare not let it be spoiled, but I must have more chapters and find out what happens to Scootaloo! She is best filly.

I'm already loving the story and the fact your making it 20% cooler shows how dedicated you are to your story.

#36 · 90w, 2d ago · · · II - First Flight ·

>>2038155

It's more than 20% better than the original... Trust me.

#37 · 90w, 2d ago · 1 · · III - Feathers and Foul Faces ·

And I'm drawn deeper into the story. Why is Rainbow Dash so tired and distant all the sudden?

I have had this tracked for ages but now it doesn't show up on my favorites page because the chapters are marked "read" and the timestamp on the chapters are (probably) the original post dates.

Depending on the quality of the rewrite, this is either a bad thing or a verry bad thing.

#39 · 89w, 3d ago · 2 · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

I'm confuse, weren't there many more chapters and the story much more advanced?

#40 · 89w, 3d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

>>2076237

There were; I'm rewriting.

#41 · 89w, 3d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

I'm hooked, surely you must have more chapters to gift us with soon! What's up with Dash, why is the teacher on a warpath, and what happened to scoots mom? This story has a sad tag and I get a distinct feeling something unspeakable will happen to destroy the Scootalove.

Whatever happens this chapter was beautiful, I wish there were more Dash/Scoot moments like this in fan fics. Hopefully as sad as this story may get, Dash and Scootaloo stay together.

The suspense may literally kill me, and the more I think about it the more certain I am the tragic event is either: dash dies or Scootaloo is crippled. How could you write something so sad? I shall be back for the next chapter to see.

#42 · 89w, 3d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

DAMMIT I FINALLY READ THIS AND THIS IS THE CHAPTER I LEAVE OFF ON:flutterrage:!!!

:fluttershyouch:I hate this place....

#43 · 89w, 3d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

Literally just faved this. That was perfect timing sir

#44 · 89w, 3d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

when scootaloo was racing the final race the song survival by muse came on and it fit perfectly  

#45 · 89w, 3d ago · 2 · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

"Transcendence" has updated. Thats one way to brighten up my day :D

Can't remember when I last got an email like that. It's good to see the rewrite progressing. :twilightsmile:

I already haz a sad, knowing what's coming next...:fluttercry:

#46 · 89w, 2d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

>>2076347

I think Dash will transform into 100% jerk instead.

Your idea of killing her off is actually less sad compared to this.

#47 · 89w, 2d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

>>2080058 That would be depressing. It's driving me mad that I get so addicted to sad stories. I fear I may take what ever 'surprise' is in store for Scootaloo harder than she will. I consider it the mark of a good writer to get a reader so invested in their characters, but it doesn't ease the blow of tragedies and sad stories.

#48 · 89w, 2d ago · · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

>>2080296

Glad to see my rewrite is hitting you as intended.  :twilightsmile:  Makes me appreciate the effort I'm putting into it all the more.

#49 · 89w, 2d ago · 1 · · IV - The Missing Piece ·

>>2080314 Depending on how sad the twist is, this may be the first story to make me cry. I don't know what it is about the Scootaloo / Dash friendship, but I care a lot more about those two then any other pairing in MLP.

I'm actually surprised when I searched for Scootaloo / Dash stories there are so few, mostly 1 shot short stories. I'm actually thinking of writing a lengthy, happy slice of life so I'll have some Scootalove to fall back on when I finish this and End of Ponies. If Scootaloo doesn't get a happy ending in either story I may give Pinkemena Diane Pie a run for her money in the crazy department. :pinkiecrazy:
