    Update on April Chapters

    Howdy howdy~

    Derply here, giving you a status update on how things are looking for April's chapters!

    Right now I'm a little behind schedule, I'm sad to report. I've unfortunately not been granted any time off during the quarantine going on right now, and in fact I've been twice as busy as usual! The joys of being an essential business, I guess.

    Silly question; thoughts on editing past stories

    Howdy howdy~

    Derply here, signing off on the last blog post until the next batch of chapters starts releasing next Saturday. I'm just about done editing the last ones, but I've got this silly nagging thought distracting me.

I'm in tears · 1:51am Oct 13th, 2019

Howdy again,

Sorry for posting so many of these blog posts lately, especially since I won't have any new content available for you until December 1st, but... well... I just watched the show's final episodes. Though I was unfortunately spoiled on a few things, there was a good chunk that I wasn't which made the last two-parter so awesome. That said, even though I knew that this was going to be the end of many things, I didn't think that I was going to be so emotionally invested. I enjoyed the two-parter well enough, but I didn't imagine that I was going to cry. For the record, throughout MLP's run I've cried only three times:

I cried when the Crusaders got their Cutie Marks.

I cried at the ending of the Perfect Pear.

And I cried after Rainbow's beautiful speech to Scootaloo in Flight to the Finish.

All three of these moments held an unexpected emotional energy which I connected to personally, thus making the impact so much stronger. Very few shows do that to me; it only happened to me once during Steven Universe though I can't remember where.

So, that being said, I was prepared for the punches...

... but I was still not prepared for the ending of The Last Problem.

...

... That's it. That's all I wanted to say and share today. Just... wanted to say that it's been a pleasure riding this wave alongside all of you. But, no matter what happens next; no matter if the 10th comic season fades into obscurity, Equestria girls doesn't end properly, or gen 5 turns out to be a dud, we were all in this together when we were taught how Friendship is Magic.

And now let this be the beginning of a new tale for us all.

Love, always,
-Derply
