    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?

    Mini Guide: Getting Featured

    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.

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.

So, yeah. Nervous. This is crunch time.

Cratering the region (banned in the CTBT)

Trivia: An underground nuclear detonation vaporizes a large volume of rock, creating a void into which the above rock collapses, hence nuclear sinkholes. I'm not saying Twilight would cause a nuclear detonation, but her capacity to damage things could conceivably be measured in megatons.

Poor Daring. Her mother was lost in some archaeological expedition, and all she got out of it was fame, fortune, and a notebook. That’s quite the inheritance. Protip: If you want instant emotion and drama, just off the parents of the main characters. Dead relatives always add tension and emotion to any scene.

As with all my other characters, names are hard, but I'm satisfied with Susan Strong (from Adventure Time) and Archie Bold (my own inspiration.) I haven't yet figured out a name for Daring’s father’s name. Any suggestions?

When I think Equestria-level Events, I think back to that Map of Equestria. Remember all the broken shit?

- The Ruins of Eternity
- The Broken Leylines
- The Breach

Who knows? Maybe the Everfree Forest would just shrug at the arrival of a crater and continue on as normal.

I bet some of you guessed the correct title. I bet some of you even guessed Midnight would betray Cairo. Did you expect that I would betray them all?

In two weeks, the penultimate chapter: Do not Fuck with Apples, or Do not Fuck with Rainbows. A simple choice: Who’s gonna be more badass this time? Does Applejack pull some resolve out of her hat? Does Rainbow Dash sacrifice it all for Twilight? WHO KNOWS (I do.)
