Does this mean it's going to be really long, and that you won't respond to any comments?

8252518 Really long? Maybe. I have no idea how long I'll be able to keep this up. But never anywhere near that long. And I have no intention of ignoring comments.

Mostly, it means it's going to be a daily updating adventure fic.


A pleasant chapter. Kind of scary, seeing as she's still just a filly.

Also... weeks in a cave? Even for a unicorn with the ability to create light, that sounds exhausting. And carrying weeks worth of bread and cheese in a saddlebag seems like an awful lot of weight for a kid. And that's not even counting how lucky she is that she didn't get lost or fall in a pit or something.

Why doesn't she just levitate herself? That's one of the most useful things we've seen any unicorn do in this series.

8259636 She doesn't know how to do that yet. But she'll definitely figure it out some day.


Huh. So... she's removed her own cutie mark? Hasn't gotten one yet, and drew one onto her fur?

Though, if she'd removed it already, that could explain why she's having trouble with magic (you know... beyond just exhaustion).


She scarfed the berries by the dozen. Small, bulb-shaped, and incredibly sour, they made her tongue puff up as she ate, but she didn't care.

I thought for sure she'd poisoned herself. Damn, girl. You gotta be more careful.

That was too much like getting attached, and she had to prevent herself from caring too much about anything in order not to find her cutie mark.

Okay, I see. She drew on the equals sign, and is trying to avoid getting her cutie mark.

This is a great story, but just one comment about it- breathe vs breath

She will go far with her determination

I love this, Have her meet the Hollow Knight

Not letting anything deter her I like it

More, please, we love it!!


green patch of grass on the far side of the late that was


Interesting developments.

8266342 Well, luckily, it's a daily, so more should never be that far off!


the sun warmer her from within


I wonder how many lakes in the world sink into caves.


🎵 don't go chasin' waterfalls...


Well... I was going to say that pitching her boat while the wood is wet wouldn't work, because the sap wouldn't soak into the boards. The whole thing would peel off in one piece.

But I guess that doesn't matter, does it?


This doesn't seem safe.


Augh! This is it? I didn't think I was catching up that quickly.

Well... I guess I'm waiting, too.

You're almost there, Glimmer! Maybe. Hopefully :x


The thing was peeling. Her wonderful, hard-spread tree sap was all coming off, a flimsy, brittle sheet hanging from the tightly-spaced boards like a scab waiting to be picked.

I hate being right, sometimes...


Maybe it's because I'm a paranoid mf'er, but I'd be worried I'd fall asleep in that boat and drift out into the ocean.

I'm interested to see whose company she's landed in, where unicorns are so rare.


Sweet chapter.

But never anywhere near that long.

3 million words later...

Blanket too OP, pls nerf. :trollestia:

no trace of a cutie mark whatsoever



"Given that you're a unicorn, I'd have expected you'd be more surprised that these two have them."


8280737 Is there some unfortunate implication here I'm missing?

Just suspicious of everything, waiting for it to all turn out to be terrible.

This was an adorable chapter, and this

While it was even darker than the ground floor, the darkness had a completely different feel: rather than being fast asleep or resentfully woken, it was drowsily awake, waiting for someone to arrive before it could turn in for the night.

is a beautiful piece of prose.


The adorableness continues.

Just as Starlight finished purging her worry and started setting her train of thought on a more interesting track, though, Maple snuffled and sat up. "All right," she said, blinking. "That'll do it. I'm awake now."

Welp, I hate Maple. :trixieshiftleft: My 'two more minutes' inevitably turns into three more hours. :raritydespair: Friggin' morning people.

You paint a very interesting picture.


Interestinger and interestinger...

all the other ponies she saw were earth ponies, and they were all mares



You have a talent for writing "adorable."

It probably also means all the characters and locations in the story change name three times when they are introduced an he never goes back to fix any mistakes.

mysteeeerious :trixieshiftright:
