    Update

    Hi there.

    First off, apologies for the long wait for an update. Ever since I got promoted I have had to do a lot more 'adulting'. Just about got a handle on it and the 'imposter syndrome' was starting to fade when they go a promote me again! (Seriously? What the heck are 'upstairs' smoking... and can I have some?)

    Next chapter now at editor's

    Next chapter, Deterrent (part 2), has now been passed to my editor. Or perhaps 'unleashed upon' would be a better terminology.

    Yes, I agree it has been a (too) long time.

    I claim NO major crisis or drama in my life to account for it. Just life itself ticking-over, inexorably dragging me, kicking-and-screaming, towards being a responsible, mature, grown-up adult.

    ...whimpering sounds...

    Next Chapter soon.

    The next chapter, Deterrent - Part 1, has now been submitted to my editor... for the second time. He (quite rightly) pointed out something the first time, something that was basically 'well that's all a little too convenient', so off I went to sort that out.

    Still Alive

    Just thought I’d drop a quick blog to state that: No I’m not dead... and neither is this story.

    The next chapter is coming along, just more slowly than I hoped, but it is coming together.

    No major drama going on here, it’s just xmas, mum is down with us right now and the longer working hours mean less free time during the working week.

    Chapter will be published Monday

    I haven't heard back from my editor yet, which is highly unusual. Normally a day or two, three at most.

    While I am hesitant to release the chapter with proper editing, I will publish it Monday. Keeping everyone waiting any longer than that is just getting/has already got silly.

    So, I will go through it one more time myself looking for errors.

Next Chapter · 6:10pm Oct 2nd, 2016

'Chapter 47- The Frozen Sun' is now off to my pre-reader and editor.

And on a minor note, it's been a couple of months since I went over to night-shift and it still feels like I have to make an effort to stay in the proper sleep pattern. I had a week off recently and thought: 'yippee, I can go to bed early...'

A moment's silence for my youth if you please.

As someone who's worked overnights for more than a decade, I can tell you now that it never gets any easier. And it doesn't help that people will constantly assume that you should be awake when they are and call you at noon wondering why you're not awake yet.

It just gets easier to deal with the sleep deprivation.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MORE DENUO FORTUNA!!!!!!! And Celestia & Sunbeam will FINALLY have their confrontation! YES!!!!!!! :yay::pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss::raritystarry::twilightsmile::ajsmug:

:trollestia:: This will be quite...loud, My Little Ponies. Best keep your distance.

finally, an update. Going more than a two days without one in my tracking folder is torture.

I'm calling it now. The next chapter will systematically go around and view every perspective except Celestia's and Sunbeam's on the events between Celestia leaving and everyone catching up with her.

Because authors are evil. Eeeeeeeeeeeviiiiilllllllll I say! :pinkiecrazy:

Yeah I know the feeling. Most people just aren't made for night shift. I worked nights myself for a while but I just couldn't deal with the isolation of having such an odd schedule. Plus where I was working only paid like an extra dollar per hour for nights and the extra 8 dollars a day just wasn't worth it. Also it was a UDF gas station

Sooooooo........any word from your pre-reader & editor on when that chapter will make an appearance? :duck:

It will be published Monday - see blog.

As I said, I would have liked to have posted it sooner but without an editor's touch...
