100+ likes on Taking Another Career Option (henceforth: T.A.C.O.) in under a week leads me to believe this blog entry's title is true.  Here I was worried folks would take exception to my writing an Equestria Girls story, or even my jumping on the "Sonata loves tacos" bandwagon.  But no, turns out you guys just rock!  Thanks so much for the support, as always it is appreciated and humbles me that so many of you find enjoyment in one of my stories.

As I said in my author's notes for T.A.C.O., I'd been wanting to write an EqG story for a long time now.  My earliest ideas were to do a series of stories about Sunset Shimmer being reformed with the help of the rest of the girls.  This was long before we knew Rainbow Rocks was going to be a thing, but a number of things conspired to keep me from actually tackling that idea.  Then we got Rainbow Rocks and, lo and behold, Sunset is redeemed and made a part of the human Mane 6.  So that pretty much scrapped my original story idea.  Seeing RR in the theater definitely sparked my creativity, though.  I had to write something.

It's almost a given we're never going to see The Dazzlings again (watch me eat those words whenever the next EqG thing lands) so I figured that was my best bet and there is plenty of room to fudge things with these three.  The easiest target was Sonata, because let's all be honest here she's just plain cute.  At heart she's just a variation on Pinkie herself so it wasn't that difficult to get her characterization down.  The story practically wrote itself once I had the hook by which Sunset and Sonata would cross paths.  I purposefully left a door open at the end there for future stories with Sonata supposing that "anything's possible" with regards to Adagio and Aria possibly coming around as well, but I didn't want to bank on this being a thing until I received some feedback on T.A.C.O.

And as I said at the beginning of this post, 100+ likes and a few dozen comments later, I get the sense that you guys like this idea.   So work has already begun on the first follow-up story to T.A.C.O.  Who's getting the treatment this time?  I'll leave that for you all guess for now, but you've got a 50/50 shot at being right.

Yes, this is further putting off my follow-up story to Tarnished Feelings.  I know.  I kinda feel bad about that, but at the same time this is where my creative energy is going right now and I can't really force myself to write something my heart isn't in at the moment.  That story will get its time in the sun, but it likely won't be until after I've gotten this business with The Dazzlings put to bed.

Again, I'm not going to put a timetable on when the next story will be done, but I'm definitely excited to be writing this story so we're not talking months.  It'll be posted as another one-shot story, but will certainly be linked to the events of T.A.C.O.

Thank you all yet again for your support, and I'll have another blog post in the near future to let you all know when the next story is nearing completion.  Take care, and as always folks, shine like rainbows.
