Another Update · 6:24am
Hey all, just popping in to give you a heads-up.
Sorry it's been so long since I've last updated, but my life went from bad to worse in the time that I posted my last blog update. Things seemed to be leveling out after everything that happened with my grandfather and best friend, but it completely went to hell at the beginning of February. I went on vacation with my girlfriend (which was more or less a disaster), and came home to find out that my uncle had died the night before I got home due to a bacterial infection. We no more than left his funeral on Wednesday when my last remaining living grandmother fell and broke her leg. She died twenty days later after a massive stroke post surgery. You all think it's pretty bad so far, right?
It gets worse.
As it turns out, the night of my grandmother's viewing I was slapped with the absolute last possible thing I wanted to hear. My girlfriend had cheated on me. With my best friend. I cannot begin to express what I have been going through lately, and it has killed any urge and motivation to continue writing. I'm sorry that I'm holding out on you all, but I just can't bring myself to do it, and I refuse to give you all work that is beneath the quality I've given you up until now.
I promise I'll get back to it... eventually. Maybe when I'm done picking myself up off the ground.
PS: I wouldn't mind talking to some friends. If you're willing, send me a message with your Skype if you have it.
An Update · 5:42am
Hey all, Lithe here. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, because I sure as hell didn't, but I'll get to that.
The last couple of months been out of control. The reason why updates have slowed down to almost a complete halt is because of many different issues in the family. In mid-August I lost my grandfather to Alzheimer's, so that in it of itself has been a challenge. That on top of school, work, and dealing with my dad breaking his foot was weighing heavily on me.
Fast-forward to Wednesday night. I get a call from my best friend informing me that another one of my friends has just had a seizure. We all end up at the hospital, and we stay there throughout the night.
Thursday. Thanksgiving Day. The day we all are supposed to spend with family. I do the usual rounds of preparation as I do every year, keeping in contact with my friend's mom on his condition. Shortly after dinner, I get a call from his mother. They can't stabilize his heart, and they don't think they'll be able to revive him.
He passed away a half-hour later.
Now... with that said, I've decided to put Two's Company, Three's a Crowd as well as my other stories on a temporary hiatus until things slow down and I can get this massive writer's block off my chest and my heart. I've decided to do this because it recently occurred to me that my friend that passed was the one who actually motivated me to continue with it and post it here on FimFiction. Had it not been for him, TC would never have gotten off the ground. With that in mind, TC will be on hiatus...
...But this does not mean I will never finish it. He would want me to finish the story, and in his memory I will do just that.
All I ask is that you bear with me during these tough times.
Thanks for all the love and support,

An Explanation · 4:15pm
With the release of the last two chapters of Two's Company, I've noticed a lot of readers have been a bit displeased as to the fact that Lyra and Bonbon as well as Twilight and Trixie are also expecting foals in the near future. Allow me to put this into perspective.
I've been alluding to this for a while, as far back as when Octavia and Vinyl met Twilight and Trixie for the first time. Think about it: if something new and exciting has been discovered, and you tell people about it, won't they want to try it too? I felt I made it blatantly obvious that this was going to occur. To verify, I'll even post a section from an earlier chapter to verify:
Lyra and Bonbon:
"Have you and Octavia finally settled down?" She questioned, raising a suggestive eyebrow.
Vinyl blushed brightly at this, and rubbed the back of her head with a hoof. "Yeah, we did...we're in Ponyville because...well...Octy's pregnant."
"Aww, what a cute petname for her-" Bonbon stopped mid-sentence. "Wait, what?"
"Yeah...um...we're having a foal." Vinyl said again, blushing an even darker shade of red.
"Oh my goodness! Congratulations, Vinyl!" Bonbon said, hugging her. "Wait...how is that possible?" She asked.
Vinyl shrugged. "Uh...chances are it had something to do with my horn." Vinyl turned an impossibly dark shade of red, and averted her eyes when she saw Bonbon blush as realization set in.
"Oh my..." Bonbon said. She then looked at Lyra, and began to wonder. Could that mean...we could also...?
"Um...Bonbon? Are you okay?" Vinyl asked, waving a hoof in front of her face. Bonbon snapped out of it a moment later.
"Huh? Oh, I'm fine...I just realized I have something to do at home." She said, quickly moving over towards Lyra. "Hello, Octavia! So good to see you again, sorry we can't stay we have things to do bye!" She said in one breath as she dragged Lyra away.
Twilight and Trixie:
Trixie was speechless. "Trixie...Trixie never knew such magic was possible..."
Spike was impressed as well. "Woah...I don't get it." He said, scratching his head with a claw. Twilight giggled. "You're still too young to understand, Spike. You will one day." She said. "Well girls, I hope that helped."
"Yes, it did Twilight. Thank you." Octavia said softly.
Twilight blinked in surprise when Trixie reached across the table and began to read through the passage as well. "You've never been this interested in reading much of anything, Trixie. What's on your mind?"
"The Great and Powerful Trixie does not need a reason to read! She is simply interested in what this book has to say." She said, hiding a blush behind her white mane.
With all that taken care of, keep in mind that everything happens for a reason.
Let's just say the sequel will have four main characters.
Hope this helps!
