Meanwhile on the back burner · 3:19am
About the time I started on the fourth TwiBrush story, I also ginned up an unrelated side project, based on a brief scene from The Sparkle Chronicles:
"She's one of three mailmares in Ponyville. She works only part-time because she's raising a foal all alone."
Of course. "Does she make enough for them to live on?"
"I’m afraid not," said Twilight. "The stallion who, er, had his way with her was never heard from again, otherwise he'd be paying foal support. Mayor Mare asked Princess Celestia for assistance, and the Princess set up a small annuity for them. If they find him, they'll collect from him."
Premise: Suppose we heard from that stallion. What then?
I have a first chapter nearing completion. If you'd like a link to the work in progress, drop me a PM.
