    Hey folks.

    I'm afraid it looks like I'm not going to be able to make my goal of wrapping up The Pegasus who Kicked the Changelings' Hive by the end of this year. (Not unless I somehow manage to churn out 12 chapters in two months, which I doubt that I could.) Now that being said, I know it's been several months since I last updated and I feel I owe you all an explanation.

    The Boys are Back ... Or are they?

    Hey, everyone. I want to thank you all for being so patient with me regarding updates for The Pegasus who Kicked the Changelings' Hive. I had several real-life commitments in April and May that took away from my writing time, but I'm currently hard at work on the story, and wish to reward you with a tiny sneak peek at the beginning of Chapter 2.

    Two Down, One to Go

    Well, folks. Looks like there’s just one book left to write in my Draconequus with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. However I must ask all of you for your patience while I spend December taking a bit of breather both to enjoy Christmas and to go over my notes and outline for this last book. While I have the overall story and its finale planned out, I still have some little details here and there to

Regarding The Ponies who Played with Fire: It's Only Mostly Dead · 2:41am Aug 19th, 2017

Hello everyone,

First off, I want to thank everyone who left their reviews on Chapter 9. I was pretty curious to see how that one would go over for reasons you can probably guess if you read it, so I really appreciate your comments.

Now I also wish to thank you and the rest of my readers for not sending me a bunch of comments and messages asking when the next chapter would be up. I know it's been over three months since I last updated, but that doesn't mean the story is dead. It's only been mostly dead for the past months and as a wise guy once said: "There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead."

So to thank you all for your patience, I'd like to give you a tiny preview of Chapter 10's beginning.

Chapter 10
“Better is open rebuke than hidden love.”—Proverbs 27:5

Since they kept baker’s hours, the Cakes woke well before dawn, and made their way downstairs to look over the bakery. All the ovens had been shut off, depriving the kitchen of its usual inviting warmth. Most of Pinkie’s remains had been cleaned up, but they still hadn’t gotten all the bloodstains out of the woodwork, and thus the place still stank of blood. They definitely wouldn’t be reopening anytime soon. Moving to one of the front windows, they parted its curtains to find the window itself coated in frost. They each wiped a section of the window clear and peeked outside. The streets were deserted but the fear and tension emanating from the other houses was so strong the Cakes could almost taste it.

Letting the curtains fall back in place, they started to turn away from the window...

When a lion’s paw and eagle’s claw seemed to emerge from thin air in front of them and clamped over their faces!

“Guess who!” a gleeful baritone jeered a moment before the Cakes were plunged into darkness.
(To be continued...)

Thanks again everyone for your patience, and I will have the rest of this chapter up as soon as I can.

P.S. Slightly off-topic here, (as well as shameless self-advertising) but I also want to recommend keeping an eye on my friend Miss Koi Fish Pony's stories, as a certain character might be guest starring in her next one.

I totally feel you with the story being dead.
I am managing two writing websites, and the other one that is not related to mlp is FAR more successful and more fun to do. I am drifting away from mlp and more going into a fandom called... Undertale.
I hadn't updated my books in forever and my other website called Wattpad is my obsession currently.
FimFiction is WAY better with it's viewers than wattpad... and everything else regarding to stories.
Good luck with the epic story!

Wow has it really been 3 months?! :pinkiegasp: I really hadn't noticed it had been that long because I know you take the time and effort when writing each chapter.
Chapter 10 looks exciting so can't wait for the whole chapter :twilightsmile:

Wow! This seems really interesting, I can't wait to read it :raritystarry:



Thanks for the comments, guys. And I'm happy to report I just sent the completed version of Chapter 10 to my editor. So depending on how much rewriting I have to do, it could be posted sometime next week.
