Wintergreen Diaries

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." - 1 Corinthians 13:13



This story is a sequel to Tears in the Snow

Storm Blitz is displaced from his home in Cloudspire after his special talent causes several pegasi to become severely crippled. His adoptive father, the renowned politician Proud Skies, sends him to live with his grandfather in a gated off community for retired Wonderbolts. When his grandfather suddenly passes away, he goes to the only remaining relative he has, his earth pony birth father in Ponyville.

A collaboration effort between myself and OminousBrony.

... Crap, I really DO have to read Tears in the Snow, don't I? XD


I love how Twilight is handling her pregnancy XD.

Whoa, Scootaloo fits somehow just right in this story now- let's see what happens in next chapter. Keep up the good work good chap!

Oh, just wait until later. If you like this, you're going to love what we have planned.

Glad you like it so much.

Glad the part with Scootaloo is liked. I was worried it might seem kinda forced. Glad it wasn't

Great job man can't wait for the next chapter

Interesting so far. The only suggestion I have is that you should make use of the horizontal rule to point out breaks where your story shifts perspective or setting. Otherwise it gets difficult for the reader to track. :moustache:

That issue will be taken care of shortly.

XD I'm not sure if I should read this a second time or not so I know what to comment! xD The downside of being an impromptu pre-reader.... *Sighs*

Anyways, can't wait to see what happens next! 8D

~ Moonstone, Minstrel of Equestria

Horizontal rules have been inserted into chapters 1 and 2, and shall be used in all subsequent chapters. Thanks for pointing that out. :twilightblush:

Two good chapters, my good chap!

I love the punishment that Twilight put on Cerulean, blue cactus pfft.

There is one even bigger than that coming up. Glad you like everything though.

If I could speak to storm, my words would be these, "Man the hell up Nancy!" seriously. Not a bad fic though, keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

Ahah! Found you, after your last story it took me a bit but i found your profile! and low and behold you had another great story. Imagine that.

noting rather odd fauna adorning the inside;

Presumably you meant flora instead. :twilightoops:

Pffft a wingboner at end when she hugged Storm XD

Another excellent chapter, keep it up.

For some reason, I get the feeling that courtroom shenanigans will eventually ensue. :pinkiehappy:


(I qan haz furtchst?) :D

Aw cute haha.

Very nice, but I sense Cerberus creeping closer with every chapter.
Also, daikon leek brownies...well played sir, well played... :trixieshiftright:
On second thought, that recipe sounds worth trying. :pinkiecrazy:

Oh thank goodness these two chapters were well received. I was a bit worried about them. Glad to know it was pointless worrying.

Okay, I'm enjoying your story a lot, but I really feel that Proud Skies could use some rounding out as a character. You have a great base to build on with regards to that. Having his wife be happier in her affair with Quakehoof than with him gives you plenty of fuel for developing a sense of inadequacy with him. Or how about the fact that none of his kids are actually his? Is there a specific reason for this (maybe I didn't read closely enough because I couldn't find one)? Is he sterile perhaps? All juicy material for fleshing out his character. You can still have him as a villain, but I feel that there needs more than Proud Skies walking in, plotting to make everypony's lives miserable then leaving. Other than that, keep up the good work. :moustache:

My general idea for him was for people to have fun filling in the blanks themselves. If you want, he can be sterile. Or Grace just finds some way to always be on the pill with him as she does not want to give birth to his demon spawn. Also, there will be a lot more of Proud Skies being seen in several chapters.

But there will be more to him later. Well, more to how his mind works anyway.

Twinge, uh oh, my "Old one sided flame is coming back and will cause misunderstanding in the current wonderful relationship" sense is tingling.

That is a oddly specific sense to have. Do you have any others like it?

337997 it's not tingling for me. She have stated that she only want to see him once, probably to rekindle a friendship.

this story need more moustache :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:
but other than that this is the best story i have ever read.
i liked the paart with the random kissing:pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

And so... The three pegasi starts the shitstorm!

This is my new favorite story... It's fffffffffffffreally good.

I get the feeling that Flying Grace not taking that evidence to the authorities or whomever is really gonna come back to bite everypony in the ass before long. Trying to keep a guy like Proud Skies in check with blackmail is only going to make him angrier and it still leaves him free to turn the tables. Furthermore, those letters prove that he has the means to commit some pretty unsavory deeds without even having to leave the house. Yep, I don't think we've seen the last of him. :unsuresweetie:

344694 Eeeeeeeeenope, we haven't. The only way a-holes like him learn are by losing everything, and even then, some are too stupid to learn, so... Yea-no, we haven't seen the last of him... ~_~

har har, found a loophole at the end of this chapter.

Dun dun duunnnnnn. I'll get the fans, you get the other half of the equation.

348102 *snaps some gloves on, pick up some brown "waste"*

Ready here

Just a heads up, switched the rating on this to Teen... was originally intending for this story to be cleaner than "Tears," but alas, twas not to be. :twilightblush:

Ahh what a sweet ending to an otherwise sadistically satisfying chapter. Props to you sir. Keep it up.

Yet another great chapter :D

Haha, cruel truth have been discovered! :derpytongue2:

Indeed. This chapter was a long time waiting ever since the first flying lesson when Scootaloo asked about their wings.

I believe Proud Skies has just committed political suicide. :pinkiecrazy: Given the events of a couple of chapters ago, he may already be on his way out. One last "Buck you!" for the road then? :flutterrage:

dun dun DUN!!!!!!!:derpyderp2:

By decree of Celestia (and probably all the elements of harmony), proud skies has been executed

His punishment is more subtle and worse than that, and it comes in two different blows.

360929 can i trouble you for an elaboration?

If I did it would ruin the surprise. he will live however, but after everything is said and done, that won't be much of good thing for him anyway.
