    Epilogue - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: The color of a Unicorn’s magic is as unique as one of our finger prints. To see a room colored just so would be reassuring to a Unicorn in trouble.

    The Southern Orchard - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: Don’t buck apple trees if you’re tired. You’re liable to pull something.

    What would it be like to not cast a shadow? Hold your hand up over your face to block the sun. Can you still see the light source? If so, how do you see through your hand? If not, how is the skin immediately around your eyes illuminated? I mean, magic, sure. But how?

    Do not Fuck with Apples - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: There’s a reason there’s only one apple farm in all of Ponyville, and it ain’t because they’re lacking in space or demand.

    Betrayal - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: HE STOLE IT RIGHT OUT OF HER SADDLEBAGS.

    ---

    I’m nervous. I’m really nervous. Not about Chapter 14 — that’s easy. Slam Dunk. Straight Value. I’m scared because I’m not finished Chapter 15 and I’ve only got a month left. It’s gotta be good. It’s gotta carry its weight. It’s gotta follow Chapter 14 — a tough requirement if ever — and I’m not sure that it does, yet.

Dealing with Magic Users - Author's Notes · 6:54am Aug 15th, 2016

tl;dr: When you take your quests from the Notices and Affairs Board at the local adventurer’s tavern, you’re bound to run into other adventurers. Keep to protocol and yield the right-of-way, and everyone will have a good time.

You're still following along? That's awesome! Did you guess this chapter’s title? As we go the titles are going to get more and more meaningful, providing hints to what’s going to happen next.

The author: I am positive Rainbow Dash cannot possibly actually carry another pony. It’s certainly never shown in any episode I can recall. So, no, it’s not unreasonable for Rose to reject Daring’s offer to just fly her over a gorge.

Rainbow Dash:

I R O N Y

I can’t decide which of the two of them would be better at getting into or out of scraps. Rainbow Dash would fight to defend her friends (she’s loyal AF) but then Applejack wouldn’t hesitate to fight to defend herself (she’s hard AF.) Then again, they get into scraps with each other all the time, and there’s never really a winner, per se. Maybe it’d be an even fight?

Not that I’d purposely write Rainbow Dash and Applejack getting into a fight with each other just to see who’d win. That’d be literary masturbation. Please.

I’m actually really excited to get in a little brawling. There’s going to be more martial combat in this story as it gets more and more dangerous.

Twilight’s gone and made more ponies. It looks like she’s managed to make them walk and talk, which is good. And before you complain, her NPCs would walk around in circles and have repetitious conversations not because that’s the best she can do but because she recognizes that that’s how it has to be.

How long did she hold her breath while in Cairo’s body, do you think?

Rose Luck Gambit is even worse than Rose Gambit. REGERT

---

I’m not trying to be racist here, but as an Earth Pony Rose would have an inherent distrust of Magic users. Just sayin’.

The next chapter, titled either Heights or Dealing with Cloud Patrons, will be released in two weeks. Cast your ballots in the chapter’s comment section!
