    Has it already been a year since OTTB?

    Damn.

    I need to get active again. Maybe ponder some ideas for that sequel that may or may not be happening, I don't know. Fun fucking times were had writing for OTTB. Fun times :)

    I'm back...sort of.

    Hey guys, hope you had a wonderful holiday season!

    I'm trying to get back into the swing of things here at FIM, and I might start with a one-shot story or two really soon. As far as major projects...we'll see how the rest of the year goes. But for now, look forward to a one-shot very soon.

    About SATS? I might revisit it later this year. I've sorta hit a wall with that one.

    I'm going on hiatus for the rest of the year...

    I'm really sorry guys, truly I am. I've just had a lot on my plate recently. It's virtually cracked.

    On the bright side, I did upload another song. You can check it out here.

    Hope you guys have a wonderful holiday season! Take care :)

    Sup guys!

    I just felt the need to tell my awesome followers and readers some things about what's been going on the past few weeks.

    I've been delving into other things such as music, reading, even drawing (though no one should ever see these, unless they want to be permanently blinded). I just needed to take a break from writing and allow my creativity to burst in other areas I enjoy just as much.

    Sweetie's going on a little hiatus...

    But not for long. Just long enough for the author to get his shit together and figure some things out. Until then :)

Thank you guys so much! You make writing more than worth my while!

Now, I will take a little break from writing to recuperate the mind and focus on other projects, like my music. I'll still pop in every day to read and comment other awesome stories, monitor the notification counter, and answer the rare PM. But as far as a new story project, I'll give it a few weeks before I start. What will come next? I'll give you a hint...it'll star one of the mane six.

Oh come on, you didn't think I'd reveal more than that, did you? :)

And as far as a sequel to OTTB...I don't know. I think it can definitely be done (the prospect of undertaking such project makes me excited!) as lots of questions were left unanswered in the series. However, I know that for some readers, being left to imagine the next step is part of the enjoyment of reading. What do you think? Feel free to leave me a comment or drop a PM if you feel the need. If I do make a sequel, though, it'll probably come after my next big project.

Well, happy reading! And thanks again! Kisses and hugs!

PS: Shameless plug for downloading my one song here.

My personal vote as of now (it may change as I take some time to settle on the ending) is to leave OTTB as a standalone. It just had one of those really great bittersweet endings that hit me in all the right ways. And part of me feels like having a sequel would somewhat impose on that. I mean, it's your story, and as long as it's just as well written as this one was, I'll still read, enjoy, and support the sequel; but if I had to give an answer right now, it'd be a 'no'.

Just my two cents. :)

Did you listen to the song I left in the comments section of the final episode? I found it rather fitting to the story, and I thought you'd enjoy it. Also, it is your choice, I think Octy has had enough drama in her life, and should be left to live out her days with her new friends:pinkiehappy:dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Octavia.png .

No you're amazing!

I'd like a followup with lyra that's for sure, or pretty much anything you can give me! :D

Oh most wonderful of nights! I am glad to hear that you are thinking about a sequel to "Octavia Takes the Bus". I think you should do it if you think you can pull off a whole new story that will answer the unanswered questions. The ending of the story was kind of like those endings you see in a movie where it blatantly screams sequel. Love your work and as a side note I am listening to your song as I write this comment. Thank you for the great reads, well done!:twilightsmile:

I will look forward to both the squeal and your next stories!

I'd be fine with a sequel, but I think the ending as it is now is fine. I'd say to just do whatever you feel like, or listen to whatever fan feedback you think significant.
