On the Anniversary of Fahr Drill · 2:39am
Today, it's been one full year since I posted Fahr Drill. And boy has it been a full year. There's been the occasionally hilarious Lord Mayor Applejack, the sweet and sour Scootaloo Will Fly!, the unavoidable The Unmitigated Disaster, the so-good-it's-average Nature in the Wild, and the "goodbye status quo" DayBreak.
Fahr Drill was the springboard for an entire series of near-future stories. Everything from Adventures to Comedies to Slices of Life to an entire oodle of Romance has been featured. Sometimes in concert. It is, all in all, an endeavor to build a cohesive world in which all types of stories can take place, and in which all stories hold consequences going forward.
More importantly, it's my excuse to ship whoever the heck I want to.
I intend to keep that varied mixture going forward. We got yer comedy, we got yer sad, we got yer adventure, we got yer Equestria Girls--
Anyway, next up, half-finished, is the sad-ish Slice starring Spike and Apple Bloom I keep talking about. I was hoping to have it done in time for the anniversary, but it became a little longer than the one-shot I was shooting for. I intend to finish this one before I post it. Heresy, I know.
And after that's done, well, I'll probably draw one out of the hat.
Here's to another year of Ponies!
Oh, yeah, just to whet your appetite...
Lightning Struck Home
Winter falls on Ponyville, leaving Spike to cope with a recent tragedy alone. While nightmares darken his sleep, Apple Bloom offers a bit of light. Will he step into that light, or allow fear to devour him?
Maaaaybe the next one will be more about sunshine and rainbows. Maybe maybe.
