So, off to a decent start then! I'm glad people are enjoying my story so far, but I have to admit that I absolutely despise writing the first chapter of a story. It's always been the most difficult part of the process for me, which is why I've only ever written two stories (actual number is four, but I don't usually talk about those two because they're both only two chapters long and they both suck more than a black hole).
Back on topic! In my opinion, the 'prologue' will be one of the weakest chapters I will write, so I hope everyone else feels the same way!
Finally, I have here a snippet of the upcoming chapter that I wrote out but decided not to use because I couldn't make it fit with the flow of that part of the chapter and speaking of flow this sentence has carried on long enough I think so let's just get right to it.
The windowless structure had originally been intended to house a large portion of Equestria’s then-experimental technologies, but halfway through its construction, most of the involved parties had decided that an open-air environment would be better suited to their needs, and withdrew their support for its construction. The structure, incomplete and bare, was put up for auction, but its isolated location and unappealing aesthetics turned away any and all potential buyers.
The building sat empty for over twenty years before finally catching the eye of several Canterlot officials who were seeking an alternative to the capital's traditional dungeons. Construction and restoration quickly followed, and the structure was soon upgraded from its original three-story plan to the five-story monstrosity it had become widely known for being.
So there you have it, a small rough edit of a hopefully not-too-revealing cut take, a la mode.
...I feel as if I've forgotten something...
OH YES OF COURSE!
I was going to say that this story's actual title is 'Paradoxum Infīnitās', but I didn't know if it would show up properly to everyone because of the special symbols, so I simplified it a bit.
