    Hey, everyone!

    First off, no, I'm not dead, just been busy, a lot of things have been going on in life in the past year, far too many to discuss. But with a new year, comes a fresh new start! So, here's a bit of an update of some of the new things that'll be going on.

    Update

    Hey guys,

    I bet you're wondering what the hold up is on updating my stories. I sincerely apologize for the hiatus, and hope to eventually update my stories soon and so on.

    I would like to offer some explainations as to why I haven't been as active on here as I used to.

    The nerve of some people...

    Talk about impolite! This one wiseacre comments on my issue report on github and accusing me of reposting garbage that isn’t very clear enough before asking if I cleared my cache and cookies history.

    Can you believe how rude some people can be sometimes? I was patient and waited as along as I could for a response and this what I get? WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE?

    Rise of the Shadow Empire due for retooling

    Okay guys,

    Due to the success of the retooled version of “Ponyville Runaways”, I’ve started noticing and slowly figuring out why “Rise of the Shadow Empire” is becoming not very noticed enough. So I’ve enlisted the help of someone to help me fix some errors and add some things to the story to make it seem easier to follow, and to quicken the pace enough, and whatnot.

The Future of "Ponyville Runaways" · 6:21pm Jun 6th, 2018

Hey guys,

I have some rather unfortunate news to give you....

First off I'd like to thank you all for making "Ponyville Runaways" into among one of the most popular fics on this site, this has been the most fun I have writing next to "Rise of the Shadow Empire".

However, I've recently gotten some great feedback from some of you, and looking over my story, I unfortunately now realize that my original plans for this story aren't working out as I had hoped, specifically in terms of the passage of time and some story concepts and ideas that I wish I had added before.

Therefore, for the rest of this week, I am taking down Chapters 1-5 and putting this story on a short hiatus as part of a retooling process to work out the kinks and add some creative ideas that I never did before. I repeat, I am NOT canceling this fic nor am I abandoning it for my other one. I am also currently making plans for Chapter 6 while I'm doing this.

I hope that you guys understand and remain patient while I go through this process.

Thank you, and stay tuned for more, and remember to keep riding those magical waves of friendship!

People have redone fics to various extents.

If that is what you want to do (or think that is what should be done) then go for it :pinkiesmile::pinkiesmile:

well good luck with the re-tooling

I personally thought it was going along fine. But, it's your story, and if you feel it wasn't up to snuff the first try, then by all means, tweak it til you're 100% satisfied. I'll still come back to it.

Thanks man, this won’t be that big of a retool, it’s just to keep things in time with how Diamond gave the Crusaders a deadline to find a new story by the next day...

Take your time, man, you'll do it better.

4877780
I appreciate the encouragement! You guys can check out my other story while you wait....

4877817
So what your saying is you'll be redoing CH's 1-5?

4877852
Yes, yes I am, I’ve already finished chapter one. After the others are done, they’ll be back up before you know it!

4877817
We will!!

Keep ir up always!

4877863
If I'm positive, all chapters will be back up along with NEW CH.6 in about a WEEK or TWO yes?

4877995
Let’s just say the chapters will be back up by next week and chapter 6 will be released after Chapter 7 of Rise of The Shadow Empire....

4878003
Looks like I was on the ball. B.T.W. how's your other story coming along?

4878006
Have you read any of it? And I’ve just released Chapter 6 of that one a few days ago..

At least it explains everything; besides, fimfetch has a record of that anyway... for now.

I just saw that the fic has changed while going through the new chapters..... I was shocked and afraid you could cancel it, so I came here.
I'm glad to see this isn't the case, this story might be the only one that shows the events more from their perspective and how the reactions of their big sisters could have caused something much worse than what actually happened.
If you need assistance with this story, do not hesitate to ask me. I want to see this one succeeding and reaching completion.

Co-writer? :derpyderp1: No, please don't credit me as such. I have only offered my advice, but I have not actually done something for the story, yet alone helped you writing it.
I would certainly do this if you need my help with anything, but until then, I can't call myself a co-writer of this yet.

Edit: Why the deleted comment?

Would it be better if I considered you both as consultants or collaberators? They basically do the same thing of what you had in terms of assistance...

4878914

To be honest, I don't remember anymore what we talked about this story already. Have I given you significant, specific advice that helped you in the process of writing it?

4878932
I haven’t asked you yet but I am saying that I accept you and Astral’s help with future chapters. As a matter of fact, I’ll be sure to PM you when I get to a certain part of the story. :raritywink:

Okay, I'll be here once you need my assistance and if you want, you can put me as story consultant in the description.^^
