    As you may have noticed...

    ...I've not been on FIMFiction for a few months. Actually, I've not been online at all. I've been taking a break from my internet existence, although I didn't really make a conscious decision to do so. Things just seemed to work out that way. Maybe finishing Much Ahoof took it out of me?

    Final part of Much Ahoof uploaded! + work on part two of Wine for Two has begun

    SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry about the wait - I've been in self-imposed exile from the internet until I got my life in order.

    Well, okay - I told a little fib. It's not the final part... there's a short epilogue as well! Expect it anon.

    There will be a Part 9 of Much Ahoof, + an Epilogue!

    Hi everyone! :pinkiehappy:

    I noticed that there's been a little confusion about a comment I made under Part 8 of Much Ahoof About Nothing. There WILL be a Part 9 and then a much-shorter Epilogue after that to bring everything to an appropriate close.

    Much Ahoof Part 8 coming in a day or two...

    It's been sent to my lovely proofreaders/friends/cronies and I should be able to upload it in a day or two. There'll be a Part 9 and then an epilogue as well... it seems the more I edit, the more I write, which is a very, very bad habit indeed.

    Sorry about the delay, but real life has been making demands from me recently. I'm also stressed out of my gourd!

    The League of Extraordinary Gentlecolts + one Gentlefilly

    Hi everyone!

    By now, you'll all have realised I was in on that little project where I was paired with the most excellent Obselesence: both of us wrote stories and uploaded each other's to see what would happen.

There will be a Part 9 of Much Ahoof, + an Epilogue! · 10:48pm Sep 1st, 2012

Hi everyone! :pinkiehappy:

I noticed that there's been a little confusion about a comment I made under Part 8 of Much Ahoof About Nothing. There WILL be a Part 9 and then a much-shorter Epilogue after that to bring everything to an appropriate close.

Also, apologies for the little dive into the SAD tag that the story has taken. :pinkiesad2: The climax of the story was supposed to come out in a single part, which would have measured the drama out a little bit better - Part 9 has the lion's share of the laughs and heart-warming moments. It's a prime example of the ol' Butterscotch tone-shift (which caused so much consternation in The Party Hasn't Ended when it first came out), but rest assured that it's a temporary one, and one that is necessary for the story. Just remember:

The night is always darkest right before the dawn.

I will say no more! Except to say that you won't be waiting a month for part 9. It's mostly written, but it needs a lot of smoothing around the edges, and real life looks like it will give me the time to do it for once! :pinkiesmile:

Ooookay, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eshXgELn9YY#t=9m14s I'll forgive you butters:pinkiehappy:

This is a totally epic story that has been tugging at my heartstrings for quite some time!

I just hope that you won't keep us waiting for as long! Although I can understand If you can't promise that. :fluttershyouch:

EDIT: My first post in anything, EVER, I believe at least one celebration is in order!

i.imgur.com/bP8Np.jpg

Thank Faust for that. :twilightsmile:

Once again you surprise us all, Butterscotch. :pinkiehappy: Thankyou, I meant it. :twilightsmile:

When all is said and done, as long as I get to finish this fic before the end of the world in a little over three months, I'll be happy.

But by means finish it before then! As you know, we are all looking forward to it. Have a good rest of the weekend:twilightsmile:

I don't mind the sad so much, as the fact that it was so sudden... there was very little to indicate that there was anything sad, and nothing at all of Celestia's sadness.

If it all ends happily then great, but I still feel like there should have been at least a few more hints.

328712 Wouldn't that, however, give you a very good idea of how well the mask is constructed? Celestia, though, I think may be a bit wrong in removing the memories.

She's also wrong in the belief that love is only a weakness. It is equal parts weakness and strength.

328777

Twilight not noticing that something is wrong is a well constructed mask, not telling the reader anything about what's going on with her is just forgetful/bad :twilightoops:

Love better win out.....or else. :pinkiecrazy:

Good to hear all that. Hope to see those lose ends like Pinkie and Spike being possibly shipped, Rarity being punished for her meddling, and Luna apologizing to Fluttershy tied up. :pinkiehappy:

Hm, I don't mean to jump in where my nose don't belong, but that's what I'm doing so eh. Anyway, I'm not sure about you, but I totally had a hint (many hints, actually) that this story was potentially about to take quite the sad turn. That's in part what made waiting so long for this chapter so friggin hard.

There was plenty of foreboding as Twilight chased after Celestia and came to the guarded door, which the princess had gone through in quite a state, along with Twilight's own anxiety about everything. Plus we're told that whenever sad Celestia goes in, happy Celestia comes out; to me, that just yelled something bad was happening on the other side. Plus I'm pretty certain it was actually mentioned that Twilight felt if she didn't reach Celestia, something irreversible would occur. So I knew that Celestia was up to something that boded poorly for her and Twilight.

What I do give to you is how there wasn't much of a reason for Celestia's actions; it wasn't even hinted at that she saw that moment between Rainbow Dash and Twilight. All we had to go on was that she heard what was in the fake letter, and then she went off by herself. I assumed she saw the kiss or knew of it somehow, but I'll admit, there wasn't much to go off of. So if you were just going by that, then yes, the fact that everything turned out to be so serious would be surprising.

And to be perfectly honest, even if I hadn't picked up on the clues, I'd still be happy with how it turned out--I really enjoy Sadlestia, which I guess sounds bad. But oh well--I'm happy.:twilightsmile:

Yay! We get to have a scene where Twilight slaps some sense into Celestia! I'm so overjoyed right now that I literally let out a high pitched squeal... that I'm now getting laughed at over.

Totally worth it!

Butterscotch, you made my weekend.

This is great! Now I can't wait for....wait its going to end? Oh dear...Oh me, oh my what will I read then? :derpytongue2:

iloveportalz0r, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship! :twilightsmile:

While we are busy spamming butter's blog post, I might as well throw a fic your way!
I don't know how interested you are in slightly darker fics or in crossovers, but this fic has captured my attention and I can't seem to get it off my mind. Initially, I was mildly interested... but then the battle scene in chapter 5 rolled around and...well...:rainbowkiss: I found it to be particularly awesome. Please let me know if my taste in fics is indeed rational :pinkiecrazy: and not extremely poor. For me I found that unlike many "similar" crossover fics, all the character's actions seem well thought out, and things in general make sense. That, and I found it to have just the right amount of dark in it for my tastes. Without further ado, here it is:

P.S: The comments section contains a couple "unique" and utterly hilarious ideas, I wont spoil it for you though :scootangel:

Two weeks later I find myself back here.

I don't know how far along you are with the chapter and I don't know how much you've worked on it, and frankly I would forgive you if you haven't written anything at all.

That being said, do you have anything progress or news you could share or perhaps are you going for SURPRISE!!! and just update it without any warning before hand? :rainbowderp: Idk. Just like to hear how you've been. :twilightsmile:
