    Magic and Moonlight Chapter 3 - In the works.

    I've started writing chapter 3, I'm just hoping I handle this well. The content of this chapter might be a little...strange, to say the least, and I'm not sure If anyone will really like it. I know that it might put some people off but it does have the tags "sad" and "dark" for a reason, I guess. The main events of this next chapter (as will be for most chapters) is heavily based on

    My first story!

    I'm very excited to see where this goes, hopefully you guys will love it!

    I'm not very talented at writing, or drawing, or music...but I guess I've just got to practice those until I get them down.

Magic and Moonlight Chapter 3 - Fuuuuuuuuuuuu~! · 2:32am Feb 6th, 2012

Due to midterms and sort of a rethinking of the story, chapter 3 is currently being rewritten from scratch at a slow pace. I apologize for the speed (the LACK of speed) at which Ch.3 Is being produced.

One main thing that is really bothering me, and some feedback would be greatly appreciated, is that I don't know if at this point there should be a nice 'let's take it easy and see the characters develop' chapter or, 'I need to further the storyline substantially' chapter.

Some notes on what I had in mind:

- first half being light in story but heavy in character development

- second half being light in character development but heavy in story points

I didn't like this arrangement as it sort of felt like it went 0-60 in like 10 seconds flat. I mean at one point I really wanted something seriously over the top dramatic and possibly going too far to happen. (withing the bounds of the Teen rating)

I think I would prefer a light, getting to know some of the characters chapter.

But I'm not sure.

In fact I'm not even sure I'd like to stick to the current rating and I might prefer to bump it up to adult (even though that would be more for creative purposes and less restriction of content. Because this won't become a clopfic or gorefic. ever).

Which would you prefer?



Sincerest of apologies

My vote would definitely go to a more character development centered chapter. Drama's been pretty heavy the last two chapters, and that's more than fine, but seeing the characters under calmer circumstances, seeing how they interact when no one's been dead, unconscious, or injured for a bit, would really strengthen the story. The trick is in not making it too light in comparison to the others.

I've been chomping at the bit for the next chapter, curious to see wherw you'd go next; but I must say, that you're really thinking this through and weighing your options, to the point of a total rewrite, is a great sign. I'm more than happy to wait. :)

Definitely character development, yeah.

:twilightsmile: Thank you guys so much! ~ :heart:

I now know what I must do... :eeyup:

I'm late to the party, it seems, but I agree with the above.

Character development is always nice :pinkiesmile:

How are things coming along?
