    Nightmare

    Had a weird dream where Candy Mare was meticulously making these caramel fudge cookies, just drizzling layer after layer of caramel and fudge and for some reason it was low key the most sinister thing in the world. Like, it went beyond merely foreboding and was outright harrowing. There were these solid black things crowded around her just giggling away as she made these baleful no-bake cookies.

    Thanksgiving

    The official end of Spooky Time and the start of Xmas Time in the U.S. (Yes, there have been 'holiday' decorations up since before Halloween, shhhh.)

    As everyone gathers together to slather gravy on burnt bird meat, I can't help but giggle manically about things that are yet to come.

    The Curse of the Candy Cult

    Been long enough since this was published I thought I'd talk about this story now. For those who haven't read it yet or who are still in the process of reading, there will be spoilers, so if that's something you care about just come back and read this blog post later if you are interested.

    *sigh*

    That feel when somebody blocks you because they were misrepresenting your work as a plagiarization of another work and they claimed you were trying to 'pick a fight' when all you were doing was pointing out how neither works have anything in common beyond a single characters name, and even that only partially.

    The Candy Mare Challenge

    I have no idea how widespread this is, but apparently some kids are daring each other to stand in front of a mirror and say 'Candy Mare' five times in the dark.

    Apparently if you do she shows up and eats you.

    First off, if you aren't in your teens you probably shouldn't know what the Candy Mare is.

    But this is too fricken adorable!

Halloween News · 8:22pm Oct 20th, 2018

So, good news and bad news.

Or just 'news' for those that don't like those arbitrary terms.

There will not be a new entry in the Something Sweet to Bite series this year. This is not to say I am not working on a new entry. Far from it. As some of you may know already from asking me I do have another Candy Mare story in mind and I've already written a few chapters for it. However, those chapters are in no condition to be posted as of yet, and I'm not going to put out a product i'm less than proud of just to meet the arbitrary deadline of Halloween.

As such your Nightmare night will be regrettably Candy Mare-less this year.

However, that does not mean that your candy buckets will be completely empty as I do plan on finishing the short story Ouija that I started almost six months ago!

The story is sitting at five chapters now and I have written another five chapters, including the finale for the story. Expect the first of those new chapters to be posted sometime later tonight or tomorrow and the following chapters to be released over the course of the next week leading up to Halloween Night. There are plenty of twists, turns, and mysteries to be solved, so look forward to it!

In the meantime, I would like to take this opportunity to promote the release of a custom Candy Mare Plush that is now available on etsy, a potion of each sale of which I will receive a small part. The toy is high quality and down right adorable in a creepy cute kind of way, so if you have ever wanted to cuddle with the Candy Mare than you might want to consider giving it a peek!

That's awesome news! I'd been waiting for Ouija to update for awhile. Thanks for your hard work on it, I can hardly wait for the next part! And that Candy Mare plushy is really amazing! I'm gonna get one to snuggle up to in the dark as I munch on my delicious candy...

OK i just want to ask you to clarify something, Candy Mare is actually Pumpkin patch as in what we know as the candy mare is actually the bad part of Pumpkin, the good one sacrificing herself in order to stop her in that failed attempt in The last something sweet to bite. If not it means that i just made a weird head canon for the series

Not really related to this post, but okay.

Pumpkin Patch was the candy curses first host. As such she shaped a lot of what would come to be known as 'the Candy Mare's' personality.

The Candy Mare has not been Pumpkin Patch since she was first defeated by Luna. While Pumpkin Patch was sealed up in the statues of Luna, the candy curse started to develop independence and search for a new body, eventually settling on making a body for itself out of the cursed candy that the cutie mark crusaders inadvertently made.

So it's less that the 'good part' of Pumpkin sacrificed herself and 'the bad part' of Pumpkin is the Candy Mare and more like the Candy Mare has all of the mannerisms and attitude of Pumpkin after she was tortured by Lemon Drop and died in his basement. The Candy Mare is her own creature now but still heavily influenced by the first person she was attached to.

Too bad about "SStB," but glad about "Ouija." Can't wait to see what happens next.

We shall wait another year in the darkness, waiting for the return of the beloved Candy Incarnate.

(and also $605?! Wow! :rainbowlaugh:)

What IS the Ouija creature exactly?

wow so it is still a part of pumpkin in there but is safe to say that is mostly lemon drop magic rather than pumpkin patch's anger and bad thoughts thanks for the explanation and for more info about who the plushie represents

Well, the plushie represents whatever you want it to represent. A toy is more about the emotions you project on it.
So if you want to think of it as the original Pumpkin Patch Candy Mare you can or you can think of her as the later version, or even the version that bonded with Rainbow Dash or Sunset Shimmer.

As she exists in the story now though, Pumpkin Patch’s soul is at peace but the Candy Mare carries on her rage and pain.

That will be something you learn as the story unfolds. Specifically in the next chapter!
