The Mad Seeress of the North chapter 11 preview, "Plans and Warnings" · 5:24pm Sep 4th, 2016

Work has finally settled down enough it allowed me to get back on my creative track and finish up this next chapter.

The three stared at her in surprise that a crystal could be used as such a weapon.

“I’ve never of - “ the blue medic began, but a gasp cut her off. Their unicorn companion suddenly cried out, holding the hoof with the crystal with her other hoof.

“Chakra, what is it?” her green companion yelped.

The unicorn couldn't answer, her cry turning into a scream. The two earth ponies leapt up to restrain her, throwing her to the floor of the cart, fearing she was having a fit...
