Sequels1

Have you ever felt like you've waited too long to make a confession? Spike is one dragon who has, and now he writes a letter to the love of his life, all in the hope that he isn't too late. That she isn't already taken.

Not going to lie, there's a lot in this pretty close to my heart right now. Great job.

Nice story. Make a sequel. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

5112320 Thank you! :pinkiehappy:And you know, I'd have a really hard time picking out what those things are.:twilightsheepish:

5112398 Thanks! :twilightsmile:What would the sequel be about though?:rainbowhuh:

Pretty good. I would love to see a sequel to this :pinkiehappy:

5112435 Thank you! :pinkiehappy:What could I do for a sequel though?:rainbowderp:

There is quite a bit of potential here. There could be a sequel in the form of Rarity writing Spike back. You could tell the story of Spike's return to Ponyville and what he finds there, both good and bad. This is a wonderful opening that you should run with. Having read this, I have no doubt that you could make the follow up into something special.

5112444 Interesting. I might make a sequel once I finish One-shotober and NaPoWriMo.:twilightblush:

5112439 To piggy back on what Random said, you could do that and show the reactions of everyone else in Ponyville. Not to mention do some back story and explain what exactly triggered Spike's desire to go on another quest of self discovery in the first place. Like Random said... lots of potential

5112470 Interesting ideas. And as I said to Random, I will consider a sequel after finishing One-shotober and NaPoWriMo.

5112425
Well the sequel could be about Rarity getting the letter Spike had wrote to her. Spike already has returned home, and waits for a response. The ending is up to you. :rainbowwild::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

5112707 As I've said below, I will consider doing a sequel after I finish One-shotober and NaPoWriMo.:twilightsheepish:

5112746
Ahh I see. Well good fortune to you. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

My mind often goes to the tragically comical in setups like this story has presented. Spike's not pulling any punches here - he's using guilt, sympathy, romance, charity, and anything else he can get his hands on to get that second chance. But in my mind, the thing I kept thinking was "I wonder how much time has actually passed. What if he took a dragon nap? What if Rarity is old and grey? What if he comes back to Ponyville and finds a blustering metropolis with technology well beyond the world he left behind and its Rarity's descendants he finds a la Bicentennial Man?"

Comically tragic.

5113524 :rainbowlaugh:He didn't take a dragon nap. He's only been gone for about 3 years.

The romantic in me wants a sequel where they get together.

The dramatist wants Rarity to have moved on and found somepony, and Spike's poor little heart fractures into a million pieces. :pinkiecrazy:

5113852 :rainbowlaugh: Wait for the sequel!

5115190 That's contradictory!:trixieshiftright:

5115194

I won't tell anyone. :rainbowwild:

5115199 I probably won't do both. Maybe I'll make a blog putting up a vote for how they want Rarity to react and choose that way.:twilightblush:

Wow, lot of feels from this one....

5115194
No, alternate endings, not contradictory, you can do it.....

5115203
Nah, do both... would satisfy both sides that way... Let them have both... to do with what they choose....

5115410 Is that a good thing?:trixieshiftright:

5115415
5115416 I've got plenty of time to figure it out. It won't be until December before I even think about a sequel.:twilightblush:

5115421
Yep, it's like flipping a coin and getting heads and tails at the same time, you get what you wanted, plus an extra...

5115428 Interesting analogy, but thank you!:pinkiehappy:

5115427
Take your time....

5115434 I actually would've had one finished by the weekend if I wasn't busy with One-shotober and during November I won't have time for anything else other than NaPoWriMo.:twilightblush:

5115439
It's alright, everyone has their own life to lead....

Oh, by the way, what's NaPoWriMo?

5115443 It's where you write 50,000 words of a novel only during November.

5115446
Ok, what's it mean?

5115493 The original term is NaNoWriMo which means National Novel Writing Month, so NaPoWriMo is National Pony Writing Month.

5115498 Wow, they actually have that? Well, best of luck to you midnight, maybe I might enter too, if I can think of anything to write, that is....

5115502 Yep, they do. Thanks, and same to you if you choose to enter.:twilightsmile:

5115511
Oh, thanks, by the way, do you know where the rules and stuff for this are listed?

5115617 Here's the group for it that I'm in.

great story! it really sad and sweet and it rocks!
my biggest complaint would be spike, but I don't think ill ever be able to like him.
also, it might be good to talk about how spike came to this conclusion, the things that happened that made him finally get the resolve to go back home. it would probably be to much to change right now, but maybe you could talk about it if you make a squeal.
overall, I think this is probably one of your better oneshotober fics

5141403 Yeah, I'm not a huge Spike fan either so this was kinda hard to do...

Thank you though.:twilightsmile:

5141414 Wow, that must have been really hard

5141422 Yeah, I just wanted to do a sad romance type story and Spike and Rarity fit the best.

That was awesome! Like the majority of the comments: We need a sequel! (I know, you're probably tired of hearing that.) But it's true! BTW, if you ever need an editor for small one chapter stories like this, just ask me! :twilightsmile:

5247532 I will probably eventually write a sequel, but right now is not a good time. And thank you for the offer, I've never actually had an editor.

This was so beautiful. It takes a little bit each from romance, heartache and hope, and blends it together so well, and so vividly. For a minute, I really thought this letter was what Spike was really thinking.

I'll read the sequel when I can. I'm sure it's just as amazing as this one. Liked and faved. :pinkiesmile:
