    Work now to resume on human music!

    So those of you following me because you like The Mane Six Discover Human Music have likely noticed that it's been forever since I updated it, and that lately I've been writing... other stuff. Very self indulgent stuff with a very narrow appeal.

    Both the "Tragedy" and "Comedy" tags are the same color.

    as well as the "teen" rating tag. Or at least they're close enough to be very easily confused. that's kind of a recipe for disaster, since tragedy and comedy are arguably opposites.

    I just felt like this was worth mentioning. that should probably be changed.

A Novel Tale finally finished, and possibilities of a sequel. · 12:50pm Dec 18th, 2013

There it is, my very first fic is finally completed! :yay:

Now, I know that I kinda left it open at the end, and a lot of people would like a sequel. So here's the deal with that.

I do kind of want to do one. It would be about Chrysalis returning, of course, and it would be a lot more actiony and have more conflict than A Novel Tale. I have the perfect opening scene to set the tone of the story all planned out. The prologue, if you will.

The thing is, I haven't the slightest idea where exactly it would go from there. Not yet, at least. It's still very much in planning.

So while a sequel is likely, I'm afraid that it's not going to happen anytime in the near future.

In the meantime, if you're looking for more lighthearted fair, I suggest you check out my other story, The Mane Six Discover Human Music! /shamless plug

Well, you have those two years pass, during which time the general attitude of ponies towards changelings begins shifting from fear and hatred to more curiosity, particularly with the release of Twilight's book.

That brings up a whole new avenue of development in the form of what happens if a changeling goes public with what they are? What if one gets found out, like Novel Tale did, but ponies don't react with fear and hostility, and instead are curious? What about the changelings that used to be part of Chrysalis's hive? The ones in your story have a lot more free will than in some other stories, so what if they didn't all return to her after the invasion? What have they been doing this whole time?

The attitudes of ponies towards changelings are just beginning to shift for the positive, the fear of lynch mobs and being driven from their homes replaced with the knowledge that even if they are discovered somehow, it might not be that bad.

And then Chrysalis happens.

All the work of the past years undone. Ponies let their fear get the better of them, the various changeling queens have no choice but to withdraw and return to secrecy since, though Celestia may be on their side, the same can not be said for the public at large. Celestia has to remove the known changelings from positions like the Royal Guard and police forces due to the risk of them being discovered and the impact that would have on the public's view of both the Equestrian government as well as the other changeling hives.

Go all "Diary of Anne Frank" on that shit. Changelings hiding in attics, cut off from their hives by the heightened security on both sides of the conflict. Ponies afraid that their friends and loved ones could be replaced any time they're out of sight.

.......I don't even know what I'm writing anymore. I just kind of started rambling there at the end..... Oh well, post it anyway! Maybe something in that mass of words will be useful.

One of the reasons I liked this story was that it wasn't too dark & showed Twilight working towards helping the changelings live in 'Harmony' (Teehee) with Ponykind. I would hope that a prospective sequel would continue this idea.

Here's a wild idea that I'm just throwing out there. Celestia & Polistae assemble a group consisting of Ponies & Changelings whose job is to investigate Changeling matters in a discreet way such as what happened to Chrysalis & her hive.

They could it C.C.I.S. Canterlot Changeling Investigation Services. :rainbowlaugh:

Bonus points if any of the members of this group are inexperienced rookies (a Unicorn whose not that good at magic, a changeling whose not that good at disguises) or any of the team fall in love with any of the others.

Maybe you just public the prologue, and then think about sequel plot, and we wait?

Huzzah Huzzah sir:pinkiehappy:

I loved the story, and just realized that your avi is Dogbert..

Take your time. Maybe write some more unrelated fics to sort of cleanse your palette.

8log post with Novel T8le tagged when the sequel comes out, please? That's pro8a8ly the 8est thing to do, since anyone interested in a sequel has pro8a8ly f8v'd NT, even if th8y haven't decided to follow you.

I loved your Novel Tale and the Changling headcanon you created. I plan on making my own changling story in the future and your work has inspired some thoughts for my story.

The "Headcannon" (still not used to terms like that...) (I assume stuff that would make sense to be cannon but isn't... (yet)) is amazing. APPROVED!!!

A Novel Tale was the first story I ever read on this site and the second MLP fanfic that I had ever read... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X_2IdybTV0

Just a bit of ego food...

Personally, I would love to see you and Goldfur work together to create a sequel for A Novel Tale, just my opinion though... :twilightsheepish:

Edit: Although personally, for me, Goldfur's story is sort of a spiritual sequel to Novel tale anyway...

Just wanted to stop by and tell you that I loved the story, and if you have any intentions for a sequel I would gladly read it.

By the way, if you browse the Twilight and Changeling tags, sorted by rating, yours is the very first that shows up.

Congratulations.

Is it the far future yet? :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:
