This story is a sequel to Alternate Beginnings: Year Five

Life is a precious thing, as the mares of Herd Apple know well; two new members are on the way, and the debate rages as to whether they should continue adding more, either more foals or more mares. Meanwhile, shaken by the monster from the Everfree Forest, Doug Apple searches for a way to protect his herd, though the methods he discovers may be more dangerous than the foes they might face.

Set Approximately two years before the events of MLP:FiM

Great way to start the new story with that quote. Now I wonder how many people will be saying for the rest of the day?

so the prince isn't a complete dick and i'm happy about that

How many years will this story series have?

Seven, at which point it will line up with the beginning of MLP:FiM. I will likely do another series continuing the story from there.

Perhaps not at the same breakneck pace, but it is easier to write when it's on a specific topic / plot line, if I'm just following the show.

I think Starlight Glimmer would be a good fit, once she reforms to partner with Blueblood. Octavia would be a good choice as well, if she swings that way.

i can see those but I think it woulf be funny if the prince ended up with Vynl

this chapter was just a massive refrence and i love it

I'm curious how many people will catch the reference that isn't in the movie itself.


To what? I do wonder what they are currently hunting and how it is going to taste.

you know i never learned the name of the movie only that i saw it at my cousins house awhile ago

The movie is The Princess Bride. The reference in question is in chapter 2

well we can safly say that ponies don't care for jerky made out of pest

i swear you are just using this story to tell fun facts

Now I wonder if getting a Cutie Mark will help the foals in the herd the most? I think the next few years will be about the herds personal growth as they start looking deeper at what how the foals are growing up.

That would be a fun chapter in the future to see how Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo, and Apple Bloom’s Cutie Mark’s play out in their lives.

that does bring up a good point will their cutie marks help their magic
