A great start to a great story. Strap in, folks. This is gonna be one Hell of a ride...

4751795 oh now thats a good question, I feel it might be fleet,shinning,mid or maybe cadence but im probably nowhere close.

Yes! It's finally here!! Onwards into the depths of text! :pinkiehappy::moustache:

(I will be replying to your message shortly)

I saw the word 'Skyfall' and immediately thought this was a James Bond crossover. :trixieshiftright:

Anything is possible. :pinkiecrazy:

It is not, sorry. :twilightsheepish:

4751898 hahaha ya but instead of them all holding hands and singing together its just fleet with Alarics head on a pole singing

also great song!!! xD :rainbowlaugh:

Oh yeah! Skyfall is back! I remember watching Dusk Quill write this live a few months back! Certainly this would be more exciting if I've never read this before, but it's exiting nonetheless.

Chains rattled against something metal and hollow. Pipes…

The pony must have been suspended from the pipes overhead.

The guard’s heated words were silenced abruptly with an ear-shattering clatter of metal collapsing against concrete.

I remember seeing an episode of Family Guy where they're parodying the movie Taken, and there was this joke about how it doesn't make sense to chain prisoners to a pipe. Even though we can't see what's going on here, I imagine something like that happened.

He’s like a piñata, and just as useless as one too. I’m gonna beat him till the candy comes out.

You know who's responsible for that line staying here. Me! :pinkiehappy:

He had spoken. But the words he said weren’t what shocked her. It was the voice. She knew that voice; that low voice filled with confidence and caring.

I will already hazzard the guess that it's either Fleethoof or Shining Armor. I imagine we will get through most of the story before finding out who definitively.

Onward to the rest of the exciting premiere of Skyfall: Retribution!

… but he distinctly remembered Midnight sitting in his ward, sound asleep in an uncomfortable looking armchair. She had waited for him to regain consciousness, the doctor had told him. She didn’t leave his side for a minute.

Anyone think that's kind of awkward. Midnight never left his side while at the hospital, and Fleethoof is wearing a pendant with Cadance's butt mark on it.

And also we have the bromance between Fleethoof and Shining Armor fall apart. Not that it's not justifiable.

The adrenaline pumping through his veins mad whim feel sick to his stomach. He was losing control of himself.

I think you meant "made him feel..." :twilightsheepish:

“I don’t believe you’ve met Minister Just Cause yet, have you?”

Having studied Just War Theory, I find minister's name amusing.

So Midnight had a thing going with her former commanding officer Commander Borealis. This has suddenly made things even more deliciously complicated.

This was just great. Moving on then to the final part of today's premiere.

DQ.... You are a great writer :rainbowkiss:

This is the beginning of something awesome I can tell already. Let's hope that by the end equestria will be one self entitled gryphon twat less. I'm betting that its shining armor in the room with cadence at the end, any takers.

Well well well I am looking forward to this saga!


DQ, I finally know the feeling of my lungs on fire, my heart beating with adrenaline, my vision focusing on a single target, but some how staying in the situation to not get tunnel vision. Now I truly can connect to your stories.

4752222 Hey the Mad Wizard! You've never heard of these stories before. Of course not. They're really good though, but you have to read all the other ones first.

I remember the first part of this chapter from another live writing thing Dusk Quill did. Still holds up in excitement. :pinkiesmile:

Perfect… he thought with chagrin.

Did that need to be italicized?

Your eye is messed up pretty bad, but it’s only a shallow laceration on your neck, Captain…

Shining's eye is injured. Like he'll need an eyepatch perhaps. Didn't one of the jailers in the prologue mention that the prisoner they brought in had a "patch"? As in eyepatch. :pinkiegasp: So, it must be Shining Armor then.

We’ll let the RIS sort it out.

RIS. Are we going to see Bentgrass again?

He owed Fleethoof an apology.

Seems like that's going to be over pretty quickly. I thought Shining was going to spend the rest of the story hating Fleethoof's guts over what happened.

“But that isn’t you,” Midnight replied. “That’s Alaric’s cross.”

Cross? What could that possibly refer to in Equestria?

“Do you love her?”

That's the question all your regular, loyal readers want answered. Like right now! :flutterrage:

I am still of the opinion that Fleethoof should end up with Midnight, but he should at least get the chance to sleep with Cadance like once. See you can have your cake and eat it too.

Well, that was a great set of opening chapters. I understand from like the last time you said anything about it, the posts will be fairly regular. I look forward to the next installment(s) when they come. Keep up the spectacular work. :pinkiehappy:

congrats on the feature!

I'll have you know I'm still waiting for someone to get the bright idea of mounting 2 helicopter engines sideways, hooking them up to a pair of treads, and putting the whole assembly inside a 10 mm steel box with a gun turret.

So wonderful. I didn't get to see this for the "grand opening" due to work, but I finally had some free time to sit down and read. :twilightsheepish: So worth it and so awesome! :rainbowkiss:

As you might imagine I'm super excited! Really looking forward to the next update! And congratulations on the feature! After all your hard work you really deserve it!

That’s Alaric’s cross

...this made me wonder: Do ponies have a pony Jesus?
Oh, and will you continue your "Operation: Black Wraith" thing or is that done now that you've started the release?

4752222 DQ was using the word "Skyfall" before it was cool :trollestia: :rainbowwild:
...though it does have that "Secret Agent Pony" thing going with it. :moustache:

4754633 At this point Alaric's claim to the Kingdom's throne is moot and his supporters are considered enemies of the current reigning power. Though I doubt we'll see any of the Kingdom's politics in this story. At this point Alaric is pretty much running around on his own with a small army of supporters. Though as DQ has shown, Alaric has gotten pretty good at using minimal resources to cause pain for the Equestrians. I'm really looking forward to seeing what DQ brings to us next!

4754855 :rainbowlaugh: That's fine. I wasn't as clear as I could have been.
You're totally right about the Black Wraith stuff, and whatnot. It's just the Kingdom itself that doesn't recognize Alaric, but he still has a bunch of supporters....ALL TRAITORS! EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM! E'hem.

Though I guess we should say "is writing House Divided" since I've yet to post the next bit. :twilightsheepish:
(WHICH IS NEARLY THERE DQ PROMISE!) -hopefully before BronyCon

And it is cruel, that DQs goal is jusr out of reach. But hopefully he'll get another one during Retribution.

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4754896 If you support Alaric's claim to the throne over the current ruler...yes dat does make you a traitor. To the current government at least, to Alaric that likely makes you a patriot.

Though we'll just have to see what DQ throws at us. Alaric is an interesting bad guy to say the least.

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4754931 With DQ I wouldn't be too surprised to see Alaric a couple of times. I'm really looking forward to seeing those moments! :twilightsheepish:

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4754962 Yeah...that would be super unexpected. Fleet and his soldiers storm into the griffion's hide out...only to find Candance and the griffins sining songs and having s'mores.

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4755011 Silence...I wonder what DQ has in store for us. I know he's got something up his sleeve...but what!? Maybe it is da Cage

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4755086 DQ's dropped a few hints here and there, but nothing solid. So we'll just have to wait I guess :twilightsmile:

Comment posted by Cyrus the Halfway Decent deleted Sep 1st, 2019

4755123 True enough. :rainbowlaugh:
These speculations take us no where! ...DQ please don't make us wait too much longer! We're waiting for moar!

I can not express to you how much I want this story to have Candence/ Fleeethoof for some reason Midnight/Fleethoof doesn't sit right with me. Is it wrong of me to want Fleethoof to win Cadences heart.

I find the scene with the cabin in the woods familiar, I'm pretty sure that's what you were writing during the last live stream, right? Also you should do another live stream. They're tons o' fun!

It's obviously Cupcake in the room with Cadance. No arguments.

Is it wrong? Nah. I assure you, dozens of other readers want the exact same thing you do. :twilightsmile:

Took me a bit to find out about this, but it certainly holds up to the rest of the series. I speak Spanish, so these Spaniard guards talking with mixed language make perfect sense to me... mostly because I occasionally do that myself in conversation with others, usually resulting in them being extremely confused about what I just said.

4760227 Argument. It's Shining because of the patch. Remember that thing about getting his eye messed up? Yeah, that's the reason he get the patch and gets intentionally captured.

4760965 welp, no pressure then:pinkiecrazy:

Every now and then, I'll do a Let's Write sort of livestream thing, where I'll work on a bit of a chapter, get to chat and hang out with all of you, and we have a mutual learning thing back and forth with each other. It's apparently much more popular than I realized! :pinkiehappy:

4765842 so where do I find this livestream?
