    Myriad Constructs

    hawthornbunny, ever-capable archivist of my creations, the Mako-voiced chronicler to my Conan the Barbarian, has informed me that with today's card blog, I have wrought 10,006 pony cards.

    Friendship is Card Games: Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell

    So, to overwhelmingly greater demand than I expected (i.e. any,) I am delving into the official Friendship is Magic novels. There are a staggeringly high number of them, along with journals, mysteries, handbooks (hoofbooks?) and more. I have a newfound respect for G. M. Berrow in terms of her sheer output. In any case, let’s see what the very first one has to offer.

    Friendship is Card Games: d20 Pony, Ch. 1

    This one’s a bit unusual. It comes as a request from SirNotAppearingInThisFic (and yes, I do plan on doing the official chapter books, including one next week.) I didn’t really know what I was getting into when he suggested, but having taken a look, this does work.

    Friendship is Card Games: Rainbow Dash Presents: Bubbles

    The Mentally Advanced Series can be thought of as the Pepsi to Friendship is Witchcraft’s Coke; same concept, different execution, each with their supporters. I personally prefer FiW; MAS gets unpalatably cruel over time, especially once it’s no longer shackled to FiM’s visuals. But there is one offshoot, the Schweppes ginger ale of this analogy, where my tastes shift.

    Ida came and went through my neck of the woods, and on a semi-related note, we have some people who could use some help: shallow15 just needs a little aid at the start of the month, but Sprocket Doggingsworth is dealing with some severe flooding. Give what you can,

Halfway through the month, and only now do I realize a potential issue with my current project. Even then, it was only after talking with Super Trampoline. So yeah, in case it wasn't clear, you don't need to know Magic to enjoy most of Story Shuffle 2. Sorry if the Crossover tag scared you off until now. I've updated the description to this effect, but the table of contents will spell out which shorts dip more deeply into card game lore. Thus far, it's just #2 and #14, and I try to introduce concepts as they come in both.

#14 is also set in the Oversaturated World, for those who've been wanting to see more from there. And on that note, I do plan on finally finishing Such Sweet Lunacy soon. Sorry, I stalled on how I wanted to close it out, and when I was puzzling it out, the quarantine went into effect and disrupted my writing process for a while. Suffice to say, plenty in the pipeline.

And quite frankly, #14 is less "card game lore" and more "Oversaturated World, which happens to have alternate universe counterparts to lots of stuff". Jace being a unicorn aspect and what that actually means are more important to understanding the chapter than Jace being Jace.
