    Proof of Product

    So, I don't normally do this, but I hate going so long without giving you guys anything story-related. So, to prove that the next chapter of Spectacular Seven does exist in some form, I'm going to give a rare sneak preview. It might not be substant in length, but the content should satisfy some of you.

    Another End to Another Year

    It's funny, our species' need to measure everything. We clocked our little planet's rotation around the sun and measured every second, every minute, every hour, every day. And once again, we're here, watching the final hours of another year slip away.

    Spectacular Seven's 5th Anniversary!

    Holy heck, it’s been five years since I first posted this story! It’s been quite a ride so far, hasn’t it? And then end is almost in sight. Well, in celebration of Spectacular Seven and this milestone, let’s reminisce a bit. Below, get some commentary, an outline of the near future, and a few big surprises not just from the story, but from me!

    Why are Spectacular Seven's ratings disabled?

    Because I am a perfectionist with a fragile ego, jealous tendencies, and an inferiority complex. So, when I see a good story written by a talented author with a like/dislike ratio of 100 to 1 (bonus points if it features Sunset) I compare it to my own stories that have less views and likes and I start to spiral. They have more likes so clearly, they’re better than me, which means I’m actually not

A Little Happy Birthday · 7:47pm Nov 22nd, 2020

November 22, 2013. I decided to publish the first two chapters of a dumb idea that had been rattling around in my head.

That idea was Long Road to Friendship .

It’s been seven years since I started that story—that universe now. That version of Sunset Shimmer and all her friends have accumulated over 600,000 words total in that time. Would be more if I didn’t move so slow.

I just wanted to take this time to acknowledge Long Road to Friendship ’s seventh birthday, since seven is such an important number in the series. I never thought it would catch on the way it did. I don’t think I originally intended to take it as seriously as I did. But, so many of you loved it, and I came to love it. I keep saying Sunset of Time is my favorite, but this is the world I keep playing in. And with a Russian translation, French translation (and I assume Spanish translation), a robust TVTropes page (that still makes me giddy) and a hard cover book, it’s clear what my name will be forever attached to. I’m not complaining though. As imperfect as this story is, it’s a good story.

I had something planned for today to help celebrate LRtF, but due to me moving and now not having internet for the last... three weeks (I am typing this ob my phone), it’s not ready, and even if it was, I can’t post it. So it’ll have to wait.

That’s my short nostalgia blog! Also an excuse to post something just to say that I’m not dead! Yet! Next blog will hopefully be my Spectacular Seven Volume IV announcement. In the meantime, be smart and stay safe this week.

See ya later!

Gotta admit Albi, to this day, I always get hyped when I see one of your stories update, because I enjoy them so much.

Thank you for making these worlds, and thank you for sharing them with us.

Sure you can! Happy birthday!

Why is seven an important number?

It's been a great seven years. I can't wait to see what you do next.

well it's definitely a spectacular number!

I guess, but I thought there was another reason.

Wow 7 years, this also was a story that brought me into fanfiction so it's definitely worth celebrating.

Thanks for all those years.
It may sound dumb, but this story means a lot to me.
I've read it so many times those past few years, and I know I'll read it again.
Thanks again, and happy birthday to LRtF!

Has it really been 7 years? Damn. Still the best Sunset fic out there. I didn't know this got printed. Where can I find it. It'll look good on my bookself next to FO:E.

Oh hey I just started rereading that~
I can easily say it’s my favorite fic, because, well, I keep coming back to read it!
Happy Birthday Sunset~

Happy Birthday to one of my favorites! :pinkiehappy:
Thank you! :twilightsmile:

Happy birthday and glad I bought the book
