    Update about "Letters to Cozy Glow"

    A quick update so you won't be in the dark, before I fall asleep after my exhausting day today. I am doing something different for the next chapter of "Letters to Cozy Glow", which takes longer to do, so the next chapter will not come this week. It's a vision I have in my head for a while already and now there is a great opportunity to do it. Expect a longer chapter than what you're used to with

    A Letter from a Neglectful Author

    .
    Dear Cozy Glow,

    it's me, Fluttercheer, and I wanted to let you know that I am finally back to write your story.

    Cozy Glow frowned. She put the letter in her hooves down and stared at it. A couple seconds later, a sarcastic smirk appeared on her face.

A bunch of IMPORTANT informations about "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" · 1:07pm Jul 8th, 2017

Greetings, dear readers of "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" in the last row!

There are a few important things I need to talk about regarding the fic, so, let's get this started:



1. Most important thing first:

As you might remember, I announced that "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" is set in the same universe as "Aunt Millie" and, therefore, canon to it.
This has now been rescinded.
The main reason for that is, that I realized what I will reveal later about Dinky's problem does simply not add up with the things I have written in "Aunt Millie". I obviously can't tell you what that is here, but, it adds some epic aspect to her life that just clashes with the normal and rather ordinary life of Dinky that I described in "Aunt Millie".
"Epic Secret Dinky" and "Slice of Life Dinky" just don't go well together, so I have separated them again.

Another reason is, the thing I'm going to reveal was entirely made up for this fic. We have seen Dinky with a temporary cutie mark in the show a few times and I have my theory about why that is the case with her, but, it's something entirely different and a lot less exciting than what I'm planning here.
And the way I describe Dinky in "Aunt Millie" is how I think Dinky actually is, in Equestria, based on my analyzings of her personality, so my actual theory about her temporary cutie marks applies to "Aunt Millie" as well, obviously, which makes it impossible for the plan I'm having here to work in "Aunt Millie"'s universe.

And, finally, the last reason is the fact that I had not yet analyzed Dinky's personality when I started writing "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" in November 2015.
Up until this point, I never spent much time thinking about how Dinky's personality is. I read a few fics starring her, but I never actually analyzed the personality of the actual Dinky who lives in Equestria and who we see in the show.
This is something I only did after "Flutter Brutter" aired and after I have seen the moment with her aunt in this episode. After immediately knowing that I needed to write a fic for this moment, I really analyzed Dinky's personality for the first time ever, to write her really accurate in the fic.
Since I did not do this yet in November 2015, making both fics canon to each other would basically mean to retroactively apply "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" to "Aunt Millie", even though the latter was started more than half a year later than the former, and this just doesn't feel right.

So, TL;DR, "Aunt Millie" and "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" are not canon to each other anymore now, because Dinky's personality and life in these two different fics clash with each other, and so does a theory I have about Dinky clash with the idea I'm going with in the latter fic, and because "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" was started when I didn't even know yet that "Aunt Millie" would be a thing.
This means, everything you read in "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity", while fitting to the show since it's based on "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", is NOT in any way canon to "Aunt Millie".

This goes, and goes ESPECIALLY, for the friendship between Dinky and Lily Longsocks, as well. I made them only friends in "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" too, because I like the idea of them being friends.
Dinky's mention that she became friends with Lily at the cute-ceanera of Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle in "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" is NOT referring to what I described about their first meeting in "Aunt Millie", these are two different events that happened in two different universes.
IF I ever delve more into the early, first days of friendship between Dinky and Lily, then it will be in a sidefic to "Aunt Millie", which will be properly marked as such then and said sidefic will NOT be canon to "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity", either, then and ONLY be canon to "Aunt Millie", the fic it will be based on, then.

"The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" is a self-contained universe and nothing in it is in ANY way connected to "Aunt Millie" or to any sidefics, sequels or prequels for "Aunt Millie" that I might write one day.


2. The binge-writing was a success! I still have not completed the fic, but the chapters I wrote in advance and have in reserve now allow me to write more than just new chapters for "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity", during the current mini-hiatus as well as once Season 7 has returned to us.
So, if this fic isn't your cup of tea, expect infos about a new one-shot soon!


3. And, finally, due to the mentioned mini-hiatus, I will change the release day for new chapters of "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity". Until Season 7 returns, new chapters will come out on Saturday instead of Friday.



And this is it. I'm sorry for the wall of text here, somehow, there is always something about "The Strange Case of Dinky Hooves' Cutie Mark Curiosity" that needs to be announced or clarified..... But I hope this was finally the last time this had to happen now.
I hope to see you later for the release of a new chapter!

Do as you like, I like the story no matter how you make it. The friendship between Lilly and Dinky is a cute idea. I also like how you potray Dinky's personality. In most fics I read about her, she's friendly, alwys ready to help and always ready to get to know something new.

I know you like it either way, this is just a general notification that the two fics are not set in the same universe, to prevent readers from assuming them as canon to each other. :twilightsheepish:

Better safe then sorry. And guess what: I passed my final exam yesterday!:pinkiehappy:

That's a lot of words. Good luck, in any case!

A lot of words for a lot of meaning. Considering that I might write sidefics or even sequels/prequels for "Aunt Millie", it would be pretty terrible if people assume that this fic is canon to it, so I need to make very sure everyone really knows it.
