    Dialing it back

    Sorry about the enlarged text from before.

    But when you get as many "When's the next chapter?" messages as I have about E:CW, the next one has a better chance to be the last straw as the last. This was just such a case. I won't name names, but the offending message was the back-breaking straw for your old friend the camel who once was LightningSword. And still is, kinda.

    Friendly reminder

    I know it's been awhile. I know I don't write much anymore. I know my stories are still in limbo.

    But . . .

    EQUESTRIA CIVIL WAR IS FULLY PLANNED OUT. I JUST NEED TO WRITE IT. AND I WILL WRITE IT AT MY OWN PACE.

    STOP BADGERING ME.

    Okay?

    Okay.

    Good news/Update

    I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure, but now I can say it for certain. I have a new job now. I'm working at Meijer, which is a supermarket chain in the Midwest US, and they'll pay me even better than Goodwill ever did.

    Just increased the goal

    It's now at $250. We have quite a lot so far, but if you guys have anything else to give, feel free to give a little if you can. Not as much pressure anymore, though, and if we hit $250, we'll stop, since I know this is asking a lot of you guys.

    Thanks again, everyone. :twilightsmile:

    We've hit our goal!

    If I had know it would happen this quickly, I would have bumped it up to $200. But in less than a day, my friend now has $100 to use if he needs it.

    Special shout-out to The Castaway Pariah for his donation, single-handedly making the goal. Once again, without his generosity, it wouldn't have been possible. Thank you!

The FINAL TWO CHAPTERS of "The Phantom Pony of Everfree"! · 6:38pm Sep 17th, 2016

Fast as lightning, sharp as a sword

Yes, Nocturne's origin story, "The Phantom Pony of Everfree", has finally come to a close. And to all of my readers, who have pitched in to help make this one of my longest and most popular stories, I can't give enough thanks. It's been a great road, but Nocturne's beginning has finally concluded.

But that's not going to be his only story. Check out "Fluttershy's Bad Patient" and "It's Cold Outside" for more Nocturne stories, and as the Marvel Cinematic Universe puts it:

"Nocturne will return."

Also, I've decided what I'm going to do with "Equestria: Civil War". Celestia remains in the story, but her part in the earlier chapters will be given to an OC. I figure that's the best way to split the difference.

Thanks again to all of my readers and followers. You've been nothing but good to me, and I've done all I can to be worthy of your praise. I hope you thoroughly enjoy the last two chapters.

Stay quick, stay sharp, and thank you sooooooo much for reading! :yay:

Celestia remains in the story, but her part in the earlier chapters will be given to an OC. I figure that's the best way to split the difference.

I'm not sure that that's the best idea. It would be infinitely better to do Celestia well.

4214373 I need this part to be the way it is, and Celestia is obviously not the one to do it. I need a hard-ass to give these girls a wake-up call.

Then be sure to make this OC an actual character, and not just a plot point.

If you'd be willing, I'd actually really like to lend my modest skills as an editor!

4214384 Who has the personality needed to be the story's equivalent to "Thunderbolt" Ross, though? It would have to be a higher-up, someone who works for the Princess or has some diplomatic role of some kind. Only one I can think of is Shining Armor, and he's not even that much of a hard case. Plus he's in the Crystal Empire.

I think you misunderstood my meaning, by

make this OC an actual character, and not just a plot point.

I meant that you should give this OC a personality, and give him at least a bit of characterization.

4214398 Well, that was the plan. After all, Ross has character, too, for the limited screen time he had.

Congrats on completing the story :pinkiehappy:
