    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.

    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.

Silly Filly - Author's Notes · 9:37pm Oct 10th, 2016

tl;dr:

"Ah kept it safe, just for you, silly filly."

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is one of my favorite chapters. Daring Do and the Lost Tome of Shadows is starting to encompass all the qualities I love about a good adventure story, and then some: danger, excitement, drama, and magic.

Also butt jokes. Goddamn I love butt jokes.

At first when I was toying with the idea for Daring Do and the Lost Tome of Shadows I thought about having pirates, because they're easily cool and fit the advertising theme pretty well. Clearly I've moved past that idea. This chapter helped get my fix, with scaffolding and rope swinging in place of rigging on a ship. Also there’s definite hints of swashbuckling later on ;)

I don't think I want to do anything with pirates, though. The genre's been pretty well explored recently. Though there is a story waiting in my To Read watch list that looks like it's all pirates.

If I did do another Daring Do adventure it would be more wild west / desert themed. Pyramids, tombs, and cowponies.

GUISE. YOU GUISE HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM FOR NEXT CHAPTER. You should be too.

The next chapter, titled either Found and Lost or Bottled Life, will be released in two weeks.
