    Topsy Turvy Day may finally end

    I think I may get the last chapter of "Topsy Turvy Day" in A Year Of Holidays out this weekend. Maybe. No promises, but I'm hopeful.

    Hey guys! I finished a thing!

    Remember how everyone wanted me to have things happen in Being Chaos that aren't just a repetition of things from the episodes? Well, your wish is granted! We are still staying well within canon, but the entire chapter is about things we didn't actually see in canon.

    The Filly Buster

    In earth pony democratic tradition, when a minority group of council leaders, in opposition to the will of the majority, wish to stop or slow down a vote on a proposition they are opposed to (but believe will have the votes to pass), they may engage in a Filly Buster, in which opposition members of the council will continue talking once given their chance to make their statement in opposition.

    Can't argue with the muse

    I know it probably wasn't on anyone's high priority to see more of list, but I am working on Being Chaos because the story started talking to me again. The next chapter is not directly based on any of the episodes; still following the canon timeline but we're finding out what Celestia wanted Discord for, and Eric is learning more about Discord's powers.

    Very minor change to Not the Hero

    In "Blueblood, This Is Your Life!" I changed language about Cadance being related to Sombra to being related to Amore, since later on I decided to accept the Umbrum backstory for Sombra.

Very minor change to Not the Hero · 12:18am Feb 26th, 2021

In "Blueblood, This Is Your Life!" I changed language about Cadance being related to Sombra to being related to Amore, since later on I decided to accept the Umbrum backstory for Sombra.

This is minor enough I wouldn't even bother to bring it up, except that someone, who I think might have been DannyJ, called my attention to the inconsistency when the chapter about Sombra and the Element of Hatred came out. So, fixed!

Yes, that were I. Glad to hear you sorted it!

Looking forward to the next chapter, whenever it's ready.

Admittedly, the original version interested me due to the non-canon nature of it that gave it so much potential.

I'm still thinking Amore adopted Sombra. But Cadance wouldn't be related to him by blood, and Discord is talking about bloodlines.

...Okay, that’s still practically begging for a story according to the Ice Star Brain (tm) thing.

It’s a totally unbiased system, of course.

5462325
Agreed, but that’s a different story :twilightsmile:

Mhm, hopefully, one that will get written too.

But... The umbrum backstory sucked...!

It really kinda did, but it's been accepted as canon by so much of the fandom I feel like I'm stuck with it. If I'd been faster out the gate with my take on Sombra's story, things .ight have been different, but I feel like I have to go with it now.

For what it's worth I did establish that they're not evil; they were poisoned by the magical imbalance created by Mayhem when he used the Element of Hatred to poison Yggdrasil and bring back the windigos.

That strikes me as a bad way to establish fanfic canon.

Sorry, but how is that any different to them just straight up being evil?

Anyway, I prefered it the old way. If nothing other than Cadence secretly being Sombra's progeny was a detail I really loved.
Then again, I didn't actually notice any contradiction when I read that chapter so what do I know...

Because addicts looking for a fix aren't actually evil, and theoretically could be rehabilitated. And probably should be, because according to Discord, they used to play an important role in purifying magic in the North, and now, well, they're not doing it.

Well, they are if they're using evil methods to do it.

Huh, neat.
