The unicorn sat with his little filly by the fireplace and opened the book once more. "Let's see what happens next!"

Who is this stallion?

This stallion understands suffering, and he understands loss. After losing the mare he loved to corruption via dark magic and betrayal, he fought for years to rescue his little filly from the forces of darkness and sorcery. For years later, she was the only family he had. Eventually, a powerful spell cast by the enemy took her as well.

One thing he has learned is that through great tragedy comes the chance to grow one's self as a mature, stronger pony who understands himself and is in a position to help others.

    Black Feather Project Update

    The last month has been pretty crazy. My dog got a massive bladder infection and I had to spend $2000 on vet bills to get an ultrasound and all the nonsense that goes with that, all to get a prescription for $30 worth of medicine to fix the situation. Been kinda busy with that as well as upcoming holiday planning, etc.

    One more rewritten chapter

    Hey everyone.

    Well, that last chapter took 3 weeks of hard work, mostly design, but nobody has commented on it so I can't tell how anyone feels about the story so far. I'm hoping people can share their thoughts because it helps me to know how the story is being received.

Black Feather is being published

Hey, everyone.

It was a rather unexpected thing to have my attention drawn to this project that has been sitting unfinished for several years. I honestly never expected to be doing this, but I'm finally posting the story here on Fimfiction.

Why is this surprising to me? Because my friends and I no longer write pony. We've got an original IP we have come up with called Equinox that will one day hopefully be published professionally. But Black Feather is probably about 75% finished and I've got renewed motive to put it out.

Thing is, I never wanted to post it in an unfinished state. The story was planned on being about 450,000 words long at minimum. And we quit pony in 2019 when I had only polished about 95,000 words of it.

What I've decided to do is adjust a few key things within the existing framework in order to finish it off as a much shorter story. But it will be a finished story! I need to write Dinky into a few chapters she's been absent from to get her involved sooner. And I need to make a few adjustments so that a minor villain from the original outline becomes the major villain of the story, with a properly chilling conclusion. This is going to be good!

Shortening the story will have the effect of eliminating what used to be the main antagonist from the story entirely. A consequence of doing this means a fair number of things that were meant to be setup for the middle and late story are going to have to be removed. Some things can remain, though they might feel disconnected with the rest of the story -- the changes in Everfree for example. But that would make too much of a mess if I removed it. Some things that don't get resolved by the final chapter will be resolved in an epilogue I plan to write after the final chapter.

Plan is to publish one chapter per week until finished. This will likely be a 40 or 41 chapter story, depending on how a few of the later ones turn out. There's a lot of work to do, and I sincerely hope to be able to keep up with the "once per week" release schedule. Projections look good so far, and I'll be very busy writing fixes and changes while posting each Friday night US time (Saturday morning my time).

Where we are now

Just a quick note to explain the lack of activity on fimfiction.

We have migrated the writing project to our own independent IP no longer affiliated with Hasbro property (MLP). We are therefore no longer able to post story content here on Fimfiction. However, as we finish books, the hope is to publish them ourselves.

It's been quite a "growing up" experience the past several years, writing fanfiction for MLP and then slowly evolving the content to pull away from that dependency. The training wheels are off! Time to fly.

You can find us on the Equinox discord server.

Flurry in Time

With 2020 drawing to a close, I should mention what I've been doing all year.

Almost the entire year has been spent co-authoring Flurry in Time with my close friend, DuvetofReason. This does take place in the same continuity as Black Feather, just seventeen centuries later. The project is drawing to a close soon, and we are hard at work writing the character climax of the story. If you haven't already, please check out this amazing fic!

The Black Feather Project

Greetings, everyone!

I've been building a lengthy adventure project for some years now, and I am ready to begin sharing its progress with the public.

The story is called Black Feather, and it takes place in an elaborate universe I have designed with some friends. There will be multiple stories within this universe, some written by me and some written by others. Black Feather is the primary anchor story.

I'd like to direct your attention to this forum, which will be the interim home for Black Feather while it is being written. The plan is to wait until the story is finished before publishing to avoid the complications that come with publishing as you go.

Additionally, everyone is invited to join the Pony Tales Discord Server to see the actual development of the Harmony Universe and its stories.
