The Epilogue of Her Majesty's Secret Service is now up for consumption, and with that, I finally officially declare this fic "complete" after two years. God I'm slow sometimes. I hope everyone who's still around enjoys it.
So now that that's done...what's next?
Well, I have a few projects ahead of me I'm looking to write. In no particular order:
1: Get back to work on "Growth Spurts." This one's pretty obvious and is probably first in line.
2: Sequel to "Purely Scientific Interest." Will probably be longer than the original but shorter than HMSS.
3: Other unrelated Sparity-shipping ideas. I seriously have like three of them floating around in my head wanting to get out.
4: A fic specifically dedicated to exploring the workings and mechanics of a culture/society with a well-defined mating season, and everything that entails. Well, it entails sex, obviously, but the idea would be to explore more than just that: how does it change their day to day lives, how do different ponies approach it, how involved is the governing body, how thorough is the school system in educating young ponies about it, etc etc etc. I actually started this fic already as a collaboration with Ariamaki months and months ago, but it fell to the back burner as we both ended up focusing more heavily on individual projects. I'm hoping to resurrect it though, with a little reworking for updated canon.
5: This one's a big maybe, but there was a fair bit of interest in seeing a bonus chapter to HMSS featuring Luna after her return from the moon, in which she too is in need of some attention in the same vein as her sister, and calls upon.....somepony, to help her. Dunno who exactly, there are a variety of candidates, but there's a fair chance this one might happen someday.
Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for reading, everyone!
