Depths - Author's Notes · 12:50am Sep 13th, 2016

Betrayal - Author's Notes · 12:58am Jan 3rd, 2017

tl;dr: HE STOLE IT RIGHT OUT OF HER SADDLEBAGS.

I’m nervous. I’m really nervous. Not about Chapter 14 — that’s easy. Slam Dunk. Straight Value. I’m scared because I’m not finished Chapter 15 and I’ve only got a month left. It’s gotta be good. It’s gotta carry its weight. It’s gotta follow Chapter 14 — a tough requirement if ever — and I’m not sure that it does, yet.

So, yeah. Nervous. This is crunch time.

The Librarian - Author's Notes · 11:19pm Dec 19th, 2016

tl;dr: Y’all think Daring Do has a thing for getting tied up, restrained, bound, or shackled? And, if so, how would she feel seeing Rose hogtie somepony else?

Daring Do: It’s not my first Rodeo:


Daring Do’s first rodeo

Shattered Bedrock - Author's Notes · 12:30am Sep 27th, 2016

tl;dr: You never, ever dig straight up.

I was indeed featured on EquestriaDaily! Whee! And I got almost 300 views that day alone. If you’re publishing MLP fiction and want to reach a wide audience, EqD is the way to go. Just be sure to be patient with the feedback process—they get a lot of submissions and they have high standards. For reference, I submitted back on the first of August (it’s nearly October now.)

Heights - Author's Notes · 7:22pm Aug 29th, 2016

tl;dr: Treasure maps aren’t one-way. Sometimes, when a map leads you in, it leads something else back out. SO SPOOPY

Breaking Through - Author's notes · 12:16am Nov 8th, 2016

tl;dr:


Fucking backseat drivers, am I right?

---

I mean, did you really expect them to choose the sneaky way? Good try, but fuck that noise. This is an action adventure! But I’m really glad some people voted. And I love discussions in the comments section. Keep it up!

A Daring Proposal - Author's Notes · 6:27am Jul 31st, 2016

tl;dr: Ever notice how Spike is summarily dismissed or removed from fanfiction for plot purposes? “I left him at Rarity’s.” “He’s on a Dragon vision quest.” “Sorry, Spike. Maybe when you’re about a hundred years older.” Like he’s some sort of plot parasite. Lazy authors, the lot of ‘em.

The Tome of Shadows - Author's Notes · 1:37am Nov 22nd, 2016

tl;dr: Next time you decide to plant your bare ass on a priceless, one-of-a-kind treasure map, just make sure you’re not sitting on the X that marks the spot. Sends the wrong message.


Their reveal was much better than mine.

Do not Fuck with Apples - Author's Notes · 12:01am Jan 17th, 2017

tl;dr: There’s a reason there’s only one apple farm in all of Ponyville, and it ain’t because they’re lacking in space or demand.

---

Whoo boy, this chapter. Ok. So, way back in the day it wasn’t the Tome that took over, but a super evil other villain you’ve already met if you’ve seen any of the show itself. My reviewer pointed out that it was a fucking stupid idea (my words; he was much more diplomatic about it) and I tore it out. It’s still in the deleted scenes I have in my workspace.

The Southern Orchard - Author's Notes · 1:21am Jan 31st, 2017

tl;dr: Don’t buck apple trees if you’re tired. You’re liable to pull something.

---

What would it be like to not cast a shadow? Hold your hand up over your face to block the sun. Can you still see the light source? If so, how do you see through your hand? If not, how is the skin immediately around your eyes illuminated? I mean, magic, sure. But how?

Epilogue - Author's Notes · 1:23am Jan 31st, 2017

tl;dr: The color of a Unicorn’s magic is as unique as one of our finger prints. To see a room colored just so would be reassuring to a Unicorn in trouble.

Dealing with Magic Users - Author's Notes · 6:54am Aug 15th, 2016

tl;dr: When you take your quests from the Notices and Affairs Board at the local adventurer’s tavern, you’re bound to run into other adventurers. Keep to protocol and yield the right-of-way, and everyone will have a good time.

Infernal Blast - Author's Notes · 1:29am Dec 6th, 2016

tl;dr: All any of us want is to be loved, to be cared for, and to be seen as a total badass.

---

How did you guys like the shorter chapter? I would've folded it in with one of the chapters on either end but it just quite fit. Plus, it's been awhile since Twilight has had the spotlight. How about shorter Author's Notes? Not that anyone reads these, of course. I could probably spoil the whole ending and no one would notice. MAYBE I ALREADY HAVE.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is one of my favorite chapters. Daring Do and the Lost Tome of Shadows is starting to encompass all the qualities I love about a good adventure story, and then some: danger, excitement, drama, and magic.

Also butt jokes. Goddamn I love butt jokes.

Welcome to the Jungle - Author's Notes · 9:03pm Jul 31st, 2016

tl;dr: Look, I like have ponies bash their heads into things, alright? It’s a thing for me. It’s gonna keep happening. Just . . . just deal with it.

---

Many thanks for reading Chapter 2 of Daring Do and the Lost Tome of Shadows. If you're enjoying it, why not hit that thumbs-up button and leave a comment? In case you couldn't tell, us writers are basically addicts that need the approval from others.
