    The Darkening isn't Dead, I Swear!

    So, I know I haven't really done anything here in nearly two years, but I just wanted to tell anyone who may still care that I haven't given up on The Darkening yet. The truth is, I've been in a bit of a funk since before posting chapter 7. My depression came back, harder than it has in over a decade, and with it came the old feelings of failure. Every time I sat down to write, this little

    The Darkening: Chapter 7

    Finally, it's done! This chapter gave me a lot of grief. I wrote the Twilight section over a dozen times easily, and honestly, I nearly gave up at one point. But I didn't, and thanks to a comment from my newer pre-reader, Zodiacspear, it turned out even better than I'd hoped. So look for chapter 7 to be posted next Wednesday around

    The Darkening: Chapter 6

    Chapter 6 is ready to go and will be posted next Wednesday. Chapter 7 has really given me a lot of trouble, but I think I've finally just about worked it out, and I'm hoping the next portion of it will come along much quicker. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful time over the holidays, and I also hope you'll look forward to chapter 6 after checking out the excerpt after the page break.

    The Darkening: Chapter 4

    I swear, I've never felt so much like life itself is trying to stop me from doing something. My computer and car died in the same week! My work got crazy and I've been working a lot of overtime, and between that and my girls being off school, I've had literally zero personal time to get anything done! On the plus side, I've been reading the Harry Potter series with my oldest

The Darkening: Chapter 4 · 11:30am Jul 18th, 2018

I swear, I've never felt so much like life itself is trying to stop me from doing something. My computer and car died in the same week! My work got crazy and I've been working a lot of overtime, and between that and my girls being off school, I've had literally zero personal time to get anything done! On the plus side, I've been reading the Harry Potter series with my oldest daughter and she loves them, so that's been fun.

But I do have chapter 4 heading your way! You can catch a small excerpt after the page break. Expect it next Wednesday around noonish. Also, chapter 5 is now entering its editing phase, and I'm now going strong on chapter 6. It's my hope that I can start giving more regular updates to this story from here on. Happy reading/writing everyone!





Everything she did, every decision she made revolved around Apple Bloom.  She had spent the last ten years incessantly gathering ingredients for Zecora's potions, hoping with all of her heart and soul that the zebra would finally create a remedy.  But some of the measures she had taken to acquire these ingredients weren't exactly honest, and thinking of them caused her to feel a deep shame.

What would her parents and Granny Smith think about all of this?  Before the vamponies, she had known without a doubt that her parents were watching her with pride, but now, she wasn't so sure.  Did they understand why she did the things she had done, or were they disappointed? When she finally left this world and reunited with them, would she receive smiles and hugs, or a cold reception?              

        "Ma, Pa, Granny, if you're listenin', if ya even care at this point, I'm tryin' to be the best pony I can.  But I've got to do what I can for Apple Bloom. She always comes first, you know that. I swore to ya after you died that I'd always be there for her, and I ain't about to forget that promise.  I want to do right by you, but that don't always seem to coincide with helpin' Apple Bloom. I just...just want to know that ya'll still love me. That you're still proud of me. If you could just give me a sign, any sign at all, it sure would help."

        Applejack studied the starry sky for several hours, but the uncaring world remained still and silent.
