    Ohey, I'm not dead!

    Just been kinda bored (and busy), is all. Wrote a new story, just for the heck of it. I should also get around to finishing that Apple-Bloom-icorn sequel...oh well, I'll do it when I feel like it.

    MEH.

    So I just wrote a new story...

    Check it out here. It quite like it, in my most-humble-and-definitely-not-biased opinion.

    So...thoughts?

    "Double Rainboom"

    So, after over a year of waiting, here it is: "Double Rainboom."

    I've been really, really, REALLY excited for this ever since it was announced. After all the setbacks and delays, when yesterday rolled around I was jumping out of my seat with joy. When the episode finally premiered I was grinning like an idiot.

    A One Shot

    I wrote a one shot. It's a bit too short to post as an actual story, so I'll just drop it here to see what people think. I call it "Equuism." It's a dystopian evil dictator Twilight Sparkle MUAHAHA thing.

    References

    I always enjoy slipping little (or not so little) references into all my fanfics. For the public service of everypony, here's a compilation of three prominent references in "The New Student," for your enjoyment.

    Chapter Seven

    A stallion dressed in grungy street attire entered behind her. He carried a large bunch of balloons.

    “Balloon delivery,” he announced.

I always enjoy slipping little (or not so little) references into all my fanfics. For the public service of everypony, here's a compilation of three prominent references in "The New Student," for your enjoyment.

Chapter Seven

A stallion dressed in grungy street attire entered behind her. He carried a large bunch of balloons.

“Balloon delivery,” he announced.


[Trixie] turned a corner and bumped into the balloon delivery stallion. He released the balloons, and they drifted up towards the ceiling.

“Watch it, bud!” she yelped.

“Who you callin’ bud, pal?” the stallion retorted.

“Who you callin’ pal, friend?”

“Who you callin’ friend, mule?”

“Don’t call me a mule!”

“I just did call you a mule!

“Alright, you two. Break it up,” came the gruff voice of a security guard.

“Fine. I have a very important client expecting these balloons. I don’t have time to deal with you...circus animals,” the stallion said, retrieving his load and trotting off.

“Balloon colt! He’s a balloon colt!” Trixie shouted after him.

Chapter Nine

“So this is what it feels like to be part of the twenty percent, huh?” Trixie screamed to the cornfields. The buzz of a pegasi-pulled crop-dusting chariot swooping low overhead and dousing her in magical fertilizer was the only answer she got.

“Ack!” Trixie wheezed.

Chapter Eleven

“Section XX...rare, special and banned books...” Trixie muttered as she came to a locked door. Making sure nopony was around, she cast a weak invisibility spell and waited.

After a while, a preservationist came along and undid the door’s magical seal. Trixie slipped in behind him and waited some more. When he finally left, having returned an old book he was apparently re-binding, Trixie negated the cloak, barred the door with a chair, and began to hunt the shelves.


So open the book Trixie did. The inside had been hollowed out, and a tattered brown journal fell out. It practically disintegrated on the floor.

“CELESTIA’S PERSONAL DIARY?!” Trixie screamed.

‘You idiot,’ Trixie thought in hindsight as she shoved a hoof in her mouth.

A few minutes accentuated by Trixie’s heavy breathing passed.

‘I guess nopony heard.’

Satisfied that her clandestine mission was still secret, Trixie placed the diary on a reading table and sat down.

“Hmm...the missing 18 minutes of the Derpygate tapes...Starswirl the Bearded’s unfinished masterpiece--why is it crossed out and corrected in Twilight’s hornwriting?--aha! The secret to the power of alicorns!”
