    Return of Batmare!

    Woo! Batmare is back with a vengeance! I know that means I'm juggling two stories, at the moment, but I think that's a good thing. When I feel like taking a break from the serious stuff, I can switch to Batmare; when I'm ready to get serious again, I'll go back to ItFoaG. I'll try to keep the updates coming at least once a week from now on. I know I disappeared for a while there, sorry!

    Into the breach.

    Okay, I'm finally happy with how an ItFoaG chapter turned out. I may go back and edit or rewrite parts of chapter 1 and 2, but I like how 3 felt, I think it flowed pretty well. We're finally at the end of the setup and will soon get into the meat of the story, I'm excited! Are you excited?

    There we are!

    It is done. That whole thing was just to set up a plausible scenario where Pipsqueak could sing Queens' 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Okay, not really; but hey, pretty good for a first try eh?

    Almost.... allllmost!

    All right, ponies, we're in the home stretch of the 'first season' of Batmare and the Foal Wonder! Once I wrap up this story arc, I probably won't update it for a while. I still have some villains I want to try out, so the premise is by no means dead, but essentially the story will be complete. I'll still check in on the comments though, so if you really want to see your villain idea included,

    Swing of things.

    Okay, finally getting into the swing of things. You may notice the chapters are a bit short. I try to keep them at 1000 words or so, that's on purpose so they're easy to read in a few minutes. This way there's no major commitment to catch up later on for the reader. That being said, while episodic in nature, I do have an ending in mind for the series, I promise I won't leave you with an 'eternal

Return of Batmare! · 8:28pm Apr 2nd, 2012

Woo! Batmare is back with a vengeance! I know that means I'm juggling two stories, at the moment, but I think that's a good thing. When I feel like taking a break from the serious stuff, I can switch to Batmare; when I'm ready to get serious again, I'll go back to ItFoaG.

Oh, and to let everyone know. Footsteps does have a specific story arc and structure, including an ending, so it won't go on forever.

Batmare, however, will be run a bit differently. I've decided to split it into 'Seasons'. Each season will have a specific antagonist and overlying story arc, under which will be a lot of flexibility. So for instance, in season one, Celestia was the antagonist as 'Jokemare' and the overlying arc was her conflict with Batmare. For season two, our antagonist is obviously Discord, who he uses, however, is flexible and subject to change. This gives me a lot of freedom to implement fan ideas into the series. If you leave a comment with a villain suggestion, don't be surprised to see it used! (Eventually.)

Thanks for reading!

how about Iron Will as a minor villan like Bane? but for Discord, he would be perfect as the Riddler.

Oooh, already picked out a Bane... (hint- he's big.) Iron Will would have worked so well, too! Now Discord... well, he hasn't started spouting out riddles... yet. :trixieshiftright:

ok, maybe you'll want to use braeburn as shame.

Now that's what I'm talking about! I never would have come up with that on my own. Heck, he had a whole gang... I could add other members of the apple family, too!

I should have stated from the start who I don't have ideas for. I still need something for Applejack and Rainbow Dash, maybe the CMC's too? Fluttershy, Rarity, Twilight and Pinkie all have a persona, as do Trixie, the princess's and Zecora. Pip and Spike kind of do their own thing.

Well, I have the idea for Braeburn as Shame because Shame was a western type villan. R.I.P. Mr. Robertson, You were an awesome Uncle Ben and a great Shame ! you could add other heroes for a chapter or two like Luna works with Applejack in a World's Finest team up. :ajsmug: and Rainbow could be the Flash, Scootaloo could be Kid Flash, Applebloom could be Super-filly. as for Sweetie Belle, well let's just say that she could be Aquaman as portrayed in Batman the Brave and the Bold. :raritywink: A singing Aquaman or in this case, Aqua-filly.

Wow, Sweetie as Aquaman! :rainbowlaugh: I'm trying to make everypony a bad guy, but that may be too difficult. Maybe a few more heroes would help... but that's your idea, and you're writing a Bat-fic too. I'd hate to use it if you were going to.
(By the way, how's the first chapter coming along? I'm dying to read it!)

it's going great, im actually putting the entire movie into one chapter. and i have gotten to the part where batman and robin investigate the buoy. It's ok, im not going to use those ideas., so feel free to use those ideas

Cool! It sounds great! Okay, I'll have to play around with it for a while, some of the ponies being heroes... hmmm.:trixieshiftright:
