It's not so much a block as my interest in the storyline had faded. It might have to do with the wicked hours I've been working lately. Might call it 'hiatus' rather than 'cancelled'.
A abandoned cart becomes the ultimate mobile clubhouse for Peppermill, Pipsqueak, Rumble, Featherweight, Snips and Snails. But overprotective Applebloom considers it a death trap for her beloved little brother. In order to prove her point the filly sabotages the 'maiden voyage'.
But in doing so she gets her self and the boys dragged into a mysterious forest, complete with fast growing trees and a serious head injury for herself. It is up to the colts to band together to survive the elements until rescue arrives. But not before some adolescent crushes come to light and some simmering rivalries (of both the sibling and friendship variety) boils over.
Mr. Merritt Sez: Quite possibly the biggest story project I have ever attempted. Full of character development a la Mr. M!More Less
It all started with a glass of wine...
Applebloom becomes obsessed with how her little brother is capable of eating such exotic, high-class cuisine and she can't. It leads to self-doubt about her ability to be a big sister to Peppermill. But when the chef realizes just how similar he and Applebloom are when it comes to succeeding, it leads to revelations and a incredible bond forming between the two.
Mr Merritt Sez: Finally, I managed to break through my Writer's Block. And I even got to further develop the relationship between Peppermill and Applebloom in the process. Yes, it's a bit sappy at the end but I like it.More Less
Every twenty years Pygg Iron, Equestria's premier metalworker makes a select amount of cast iron pans.

But his firm beilef of not taking money for cooking could make it difficult...
Mr Merritt sez: expect smaller chapters for this one as I use my infamous (just write on the computer until it looks/feels right method of writing.More Less
A series of one-shots using my OC Peppermill
Since I have no predicted end-date it's best to assume any and all current MLP:FiM characters will show up in some form or another.
NEW (as of Feb. 27, 2013) Now with more young colts and other mis-adventures. Expect this series to focus on this from this point on.More Less
