Who would've thought that being at the wrong place at the wrong time would bring something so surreal.

A Small Update

A Small Update
March 23rd, 2013

Firstly, I want to clarify what has happened over the time gap between today and the day Discord was defeated. Thought i'd do this for the common courtesy.

The day after Discord was defeated, me, Spike, and the six attended that honorary ceremony at the Canterlot Castle. So basically, me and Spike were set off to the side like a couple of side characters because Twilight and the others were the ones who defeated Discord, but we both got honorary attention and respect either way. Speaking of attention, the defeat of Discord also got the media's attention. They were all taking pictures, asking all these questions, and all of that kind of stuff, but I digress from the topic.

When the girls walked into the throne room that was crowded with attendees, the Royal Canterlot Band played one of the greatest fanfares i've ever heard in my life. Once the girls walked up to Celestia, almost everypony up there started giving each other friendly facial gestures. It reminded me of a scene I saw in a movie once, but I couldn't remember which one it was. But anyways, Celestia said a few words to remind everypony of the six's victory. After that, she revealed a new stained glass window on the left wall of the throne room that depicted of the girls defeating Discord with their elements. That would make sense because there's another stained glass window that shows the six defeating Nightmare Moon with the elements as well. Right after the window was revealed, everypony in the crowd began to cheer and clop their hooves for the six, while confetti and streamers rained down from the ceiling. When the ceremony was finished, there was this little Q & A session for the six, also involving me and Spike. The media was asking all these questions that mostly involved with what had happened and what we experienced or saw. I'll bet a million bits that Discord's return and defeat is going down in Equestrian history. Other then that, everypony dispersed and headed back to their homes after the session.

Another note, we also stopped by Discord's statue, which has whole lot more security than before. Looks like that will be the last time anypony will see him again.

Over the next few days, there was a lot of ponies that stopped by the library just to thank Twilight for basically saving Equestria, so the others are probably getting the same visits. So that's pretty much the big highlight of the week.

Now I actually have an update on the Everfree Forest, and I have to say that i'm a bit perplexed at what I found. On Wednesday, I was driving the Defender on the east side of the Dovere territories to check up on the mannequins located in that section. When I arrived, I found tiny teeth marks indented on both sides of the abdominal area, very tiny. Therefore, it didn't chomp down with full force, but if it did, the indentations would be more deep, or a wooden would've been knocked out.

That night, I perched myself in the nearest, had all my equipment primed and ready, and waited for the wolves to arrive, but the Timberwolves didn't come back. This is very strange because Timberwolves are territorial and will come back to specific locations because they feel that they need to defend the area if necessary. So, I waited for seven hours, or pretty much my entire shift, for nothing. See that's the thing about my job, patience plays a big role in it.

The next day, I went to check the mannequins once again, and found the two located near the border of the Dovere territories knocked over and gnawed on. Now I have two areas that need to have Timberwolves eliminated. Since I can't be in two places at once, I decided to stake out the area with the most amount of activity. This time it was the upper-west side of Dovere.

On Friday, I arrived at a different tree an hour earlier because I was being a bit more cautious. You see, maybe the Timberwolves are watching me, so they might not be as dumb as I thought they were. The thought of the Timberwolves getting smart on me honestly gives me slight anxiety. If they are, i'll find a way to stop them, I guarantee it.

But anyways, I sat up in a tree and not a single Timberwolf in sight, but I did hear some howls in the distance that broke the silence of the forest and sent chills down my spine. These howls sounded far, but not far enough for my comfort. I would just go out and buy some meat for bait to lure the Timberwolves out, but buying and consuming meat in Equestria is not a norm here, so that sucks. All in all, that's all I have to say for now. I'll see what I can do on Monday night.

Author's Note:

Sorry for the long wait for the next chapter, i've been brainstorming some idea's for this story (a malicious villain), taking notes for continuity sake (etc.)

Expect more upcoming chapters, chapters much more longer than this one.
