Awesome, I'm gonna read all of this in the morning!

A sequel? The fun has been doubled!:yay:

toilet humor ftw
that is all

D'aaaaaw so much sisterly love. This was a great chapter. I love the way you intertwine your story with the actual episodes, but this was just so perfect. This is getting better than Moonbeam in so many ways. Good Job. :twilightsmile:

Also, is great to be able to read this here at fimfiction now. :yay:

i have a sneaking suspicion that TROLLESTIA is around
better than MOLESTIA
that is all

im enjoying
keep em coming
that is all

Nice new chapter.
I do feel that some parts, specifically the raising of the moon and after Luna returned to Canterlot were presented a little too blandly and could have used a bit more descriptiveness and emotion.

Some computer processes are optimized to run in multiple threads. It seems your stories are, too.

I'm looking forward to the next chapter!

I don't understand why Luna doesn't just stay in Ponyville. Ah well hopefully something happens soon. Everything has been very soft, no big problems or anything. :trixieshiftright: Still looking forward though. :twilightsheepish:

You're ending the chapter like that?! You are a cruel author. ^_-

I'm calling Pine Needle's "unwanted fiancee" is Applejack. :ajbemused:

238676 nah, i think that would be to ooc for the apples

I'm not liking what NMM might or might not have found in the Mare Orientale. Could it be something to give her control over the stars? Perhaps she can throw off every navigator in Equestria, or worse, pummel Canterlot with giant meteors? I suppose time will tell, if we don't find out next chapter.

And I'm glad Luna has discovered how lonely Celestia is. I can't wait to see what she does to help her!

i'm quite impressed how you've woven the timeline together with the episodes from the show. The Running of the Leaves, the visit with Philomena, the Gala, and why Luna was not in attendance, everything makes sense.

What if the thing Nightmare Moon finds is what allows Discord to awaken? :conspiracytheoryKeanu:

Off to read Chapter 10!

238921 I dunno, after all, her aunt and uncle Orange of Manehattan could have badgered the Apples into it, maybe convinced them AJ would be too headstrong to settle down unless it was Arranged for her.

I'm worried about that fallen star NMM found. It seems like it has given her power in the dream realm she would not otherwise have. I'm calling Chamber of Secrets on this one, though I really don't want to see Feather Down possessed at all.

240733 Or, Uncle and Aunt Orange have arranged a marriage for AJ without telling AJ or Big Mac or Granny Smith. Doing an end run around their 'hick' relatives is just what I'd expect of Manehatten ponies. Why shoot, they're Oranges in a family of Apples. You know they're the odd ones.

So, if Pine Needle and Applejack did fall in love, would there child's name be Pineapple? :rainbowhuh:

With a name like that, I could easily see that theoretical child becoming an apprentice of Pinkie Pie as a protege prankster. :pinkiehappy:

242011 Well that could turn out really good or really bad :derpyderp1:

You can not know how happy I am that someone else came to the same conclusion as to what the merging of those two's families would end up as, name wise. Now I don't have to try to awkwardly shove it into the story. :derpytongue2:

It also marks the third unintentional pun that comes from my OC's names. (1) The Dewdrop Inn and 2) having the two farmers be (Pine) Needle and a Haystack.) I planned NONE of them; they just happened. It's things like this, and having Princess Celestia tell me to rewrite her parts because they aren't done well enough, that worry and excite me at the same time.

And, of course, thanks to everyone who has taken the time to comment, rate, track, or simply read the story. Your kind words provide me with tons of motivation to keep working as hard as I can to keep the chapters coming out at a regular pace. Thank you all very much!


No, PineApple would be the shipping name. The kids would be Apple Seed and Pine Nut.:ajbemused:


Would have been funny if Pine Bough had said "W- who is this Phillipe?"

Mmmmooooaaaaaarrrrrrr :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

pls? :fluttercry:

oh snap! not feather down! shes a cool pony

I've waited so long for an update that it driving me mad...:pinkiecrazy:

I absolutely adore this story, and have followed it for some time, I sincerely hope you haven't abandoned it :fluttershysad:.

Quick note. The sentence

> he said, pointing to his pine branch cutie mark."

Has an extra closing quote mark.

Okay, back to reading.

"I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow, a wave tossed in the ocean, vapor in the wind..."

I wonder if Pine Needle can sense mycorrhiza with his earth pony magic? There should at least be a little under those pine trees...

I'm rather curios. Is this story dead?

hey, i understand your going through a block in the progress and stuff in life, and unfortunately when stuff happens some things get pushed back. i really love this story and the previous one made me just have to read this sequel. im not expecting the next chapter or the story to be finished soon at all, or don't know when you may even read this but i wanted to say even if the story is never picked up again, which i do hope it is, thank you for these great stories and i hope life treats you well. i pray that you meet great fortune and happiness, as you have given me with these stories. i love the writing style and the fact luna is given so much love (as we hardly see any of her :fluttercry:). i am a very happy reader and will check back on this time to time, hoping each time and this hope will not die. be it 3 years from now, ill still check this story and see if there's an update. now im just rambling on, and mostly of all i just want to say thank you so much. i read this during school, had a 30 min study hall each day. i read this for a good portion of those days. so thanks! :pinkiehappy:

ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh~

Welcome back!

likewise im so happy for you to be back! :derpytongue2:

Update :D



Before reading, wanting to say... First comment on last chapter, posted probably minutes after it came out, was posted 20 weeks and 1 day ago!?!?!?!? :fluttercry: Why did you make us wait so long?! :raritycry: :raritydespair: :applecry:

Good chapter. Nightmare Moon is going to drive ponies insane!

I'm glad this Fic isn't dead.

woohoo! worth the long wait, to be true i forgot all about this fic!:P

Thank you everyone for the kind words! Next chapter is already being worked on. With Celestia and Luna as my witness, you won't wait that long, or even close to that long, again! (Seriously, I'm a good groove right now, so while I'm always worried that I might jinx myself by making predictions, I will hopefully have the next chapter done by the end of the week)

Horray!!! New chapter is up! Thankyou!

I think I've managed to jinx myself a few times...
But it's great to see that you haven't given up on this one. :)

Oh great... Hold on, got to go find the perfect picture to express my..... Reaction, to that cliffhanger :rainbowkiss:

Edit: Ok! Found it I think. This is probably the best one.

:twilightoops: Uh-oh. This is gonna be good. :pinkiecrazy:

Oh that is just EVIL!! Such cruelty to your devoted readers :raritydespair:

*Removes tongue from cheek with heavy pliers* Ahh that's better. Great chapter as always and can't wait to read more. :twilightsmile::yay:
