This story is a sequel to Millennium Wake: Part 1


A thousand years of magical sleep have stranded Rarity in a future not of her own making. Her friends and loved ones are long gone, leaving behind only enigmatic echoes, twisted replicas that offer more menace than hope. As she seeks to move on, Rarity has managed to make new friends, but how far will she go to ensure their survival?


This is Part II of Millennium Wake, be sure to read Part I, written by Chaotic Dreams, first.

I'm glad to see part two is finally here unfortunately It's nearly four in the morning, I'll read it when I wake up. Also, you said you would post this on Wednesday and it's Thursday. :trollestia:

Why must you post this right before I leave for school? :raritydespair:

3193478 ... Better late than never? :unsuresweetie::facehoof:
This won't be a continuing thing. I've got no bridges, horses, or beachfront property to sell you, just a story that wants telling.

3193483 Because I am a cruel and heartless bastard. Why did you think Chaotic Dreams agreed to let me write the continuation?

He let you write it because you sir, you can write. :raritywink:

Great job! I'm enjoying this already!

As am I. Fantastic work so far. Keep going with the awesome! :pinkiehappy:

WOO, The great mind behind A Minor Variation, is doing this, I am impressed. INSTA FAV

Cruel and heartless? No. But I'm loving this continuation!

Yes ^^ the story continues

3193492
It exists! There is a God! :rainbowwild:

Off to read! :twilightsmile:

Hmm... Sapphire clams up after a while. At the end there I had to keep reminding myself that he was still in the party. I presume that issue will clear up as the story progresses. And speaking of DracoPonies, where in Tartarus did his three sibs disappear to? They are going to show up again at some point, right? Right?

...

Pretty please with sugar on top? :duck:

3196280 Ruby and Emerald haven't been forgotten, I promise :duck:

Yes! A continuation of a fantastic story! Faving and watching this story for updates shall commence immediately.

My first question is does the original writer of the fan-fic know that you're wriitng the continuation of this wonderful tale ?

If so, then you're off towards a good start as each of the characters act just like in the previous tale.

Still, this is some update as it does seem like this group of "heroes" have just escaped a dangerous peril and are about to be headed into the fire. :raritydespair:

Surely, somepony is bound to join their group andh help them out, right ?

Still, please do keep up the good work upon such a great tale like this one.:raritywink:

3202822 I most definitely obtained Chaotic Dreams's permission.
That was a very important part of writing this continuation :scootangel:

Thank you for your enthusiasm, I promise Rarity isn't finished making new friends–
:duck:Phrasing, darling. *waves scorpion tail*
...Rarity will likely encounter and befriend new individuals.

It's BACK!!!*flies into sunset out of glee*

.....Wait as a white pegasus, isn't Surprise as much a marshmallow as Rarity?

3216180 But marshmallows don't have feathers, silly.

3216405 Nor do they have hair luxurious manes, darling! :duck:

Now that I'm not throwing up and can see straight it's time to leave proper review after finally getting around to reading this.

Well what can I say? This chapter was good and you left off on a cliff hanger. As long as every chapter does not end that way like some other authors story who shall not be named, I like it. You would think that Rarity's "kid" would have a lot more to say in this chapter. :unsuresweetie: I guess the exhaustion from that long fight would explain the lack of speaking but they were flying for 20 minutes so I though they would at least get something in after landing. This chapter is marked as "25" I get your continuing his work but is this not technically chapter one of part 2? Just did not make much sense to me to put chapter 25 there, but that could just be me. :derpytongue2: Also, a little explanation of what happen in last time would of been nice it took me a bit to remember what was going on and who was who. Cause if your like me and did not take the time to reread the part 1 then everything was a little... :derpyderp1:

All in all I like it though.

3202822

notMurphy definitely has my permission.

It's good to see you again, old friend. :raritystarry:

It may already have been said but you SO have my admiration for not just undoing the tail and eyes thing with the seed. Yes they are a bit strange but I am curious what they will do to Rarity over time...severe depression and dysphoria with her body, I am betting, but it would be interesting to see her get used to it a little...not enough to make the unhappiness go away, but enough to change her perspective I think once she is eventually restored...suffering can be epiphanic and constructive when borne with stoic peace of heart. It is just difficult to GET to that state of acceptance. But Rarity has shown signs of being well on the path to it...

I've been looking forward to Part II ever since I heard you were going to take it over. You've captured the essence of the characters from Part I wonderfully, and still managed to bring your own distinct style to the new chapter. It even comes with the obligatory cliffhanger. :raritywink:

Thank you for continuing this story. I love you.

thank goodness, This story was too good to just stop at chapter 25 (very funny btw, I almost had a heart attack)

Man I would love to do some fan art about this, maybe when Im done with university assignments I will do so:twilightsmile:

Glad to see this is still going. :twilightsmile:

So this is gonna happen? GREAT! . . . You better not break it...

You read a lot of Roald Dahl and C. S. Lewis, don't you?

The noise that followed could best be written as *BLOORP!*, however, this completely ignores the resounding resonation of the sound

More breaking of the 4th wall! And a typo!

Rarity bit back her next question. She had read enough dramatic novels to know what came next, she would demand the name of the real culprit, and the impression would die with the name on her lips, never able to reveal the dastard.

And that end scene was confuzling...can you please explain that to me?

3224938 OK, let's see here...
Oh, before I say anything else, thank you very much for your feedback.

Yes, I've read Mr. Lewis, Mr. Dahl, Mr. Theodore Geisel, and Mr. Daniel M. Pinkwater. There are times when nonsense needs to be taken very seriously:moustache:

As for the second, 'dastard' is indeed a word. It may not have seen common usage in the last half-century, but it is an excellent term, and one devoid of connotations questioning the target's ancestry and the validity of wedlock therein, a thing somepony like Miss Rarity would not approve of :duck:

Rarity gets the 'magic seed', she tells Firefly to use it. The rainbowform in Firefly's mind detects the threat to its existence, seizes control, and tries to escape. Megan recognizes the change in Firefly's behavior and freezes the fleeing pegasus in time and space.

Rarity, taking all of this in, realizes that when Firefly 'unfreezes' they will have the exact same problem, so she is holding the 'magic seed' in front of the pegasus's open mouth, in hopes that Firefly will swallow it, thus curing herself.

Clear as mud, yes?

I thought Surprise knew about Pinkie's imprint true nature.

3225897
Hmm...joke not obvious, need to make it so that people can see it more easily-er(?) next time...

And yes, the ending is much clearer now...

Read part one, now onto part 2.

Also DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING ANY IMPRINT SAYS!!, Personally I think all of them have gone mad to a degree.

SEQUAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

This is just great. I can't wait for the next chapter. :pinkiehappy:

3196511
They were named after the pokemon games weren't they. I am disappoint if not.

3239906 :applejackunsure: you'll have to ask Chaotic Dreams if that's the case, I only added one detail to the trio, and if I did it right you'll never know what it was :raritywink:

I must say i'm glad to see this story back in the loop again, it will be interesting to see where you are going to take this story and you seem like a skill full enough writer to effordless carry this story the "right way".

I don't know what Chaotic originaly had planned to go with this story, but the main quistion kinda is: Are you following his original plan and if yes are you under his supervision?
or are you going a diffrent route?

It lives, and it is awesome. You, sir, have earned a follower for this faithful continuation of one of my favourite fics.

3240988 Let's call it 'a little of column A, a little of column B'.

Will it be a different route? To some degree that's unavoidable, I'm not the same person as Chaotic Dreams.

CD has been generous with his old notes, and has been really nice about letting me bounce new ideas off him. We're still discussing the ultimate fate of the ending, but I have a pretty clear idea of the underlying forces at work. You're going to get the original revelations to the mysteries of this world that ran through the original story.

That said, there's not enough material to finish the story by simply riding on Chaotic's coattails. My job is to bring everything together as seamlessly and faithfully as I can, and entertain everyone along the way.

3241279 sounds like this story is in good hands then.
Good Luck writeing.

Did the original author give you the ... main plot skeleton or something to follow, or are you all on your own on this? Great job with this, I liked it :D

What have we learned today? If a dieing tree tells you something... Nike.

I do not mean to pester you on this, but are you still writing the next chapter?

3414688 Yeah, :twilightblush: sorry for the wait. Life & etc. ... but it should be finished by the end of the week.

3414957 Ah, that is great! I also know that life can get pretty hectic, so no worries. Just glad to know that this story isn't dead yet, :pinkiehappy:

Huh. An interesting take on comercialization. I hope after each industry falls All their Nast effects begin to dissapear. As in most of the dangerous stuff dissapears leaving only one or two noticeable impacts in the landscape.

:fluttershysad: *Pokes the writer hopefully but no rush... just a gentle hopeful nudge*

So, we will finally get the pink Firefly, yay!

But, I still want to see Posey....
