Hey, thanks for the follow!

a new chapter is currently in the works and ill have it out as quick as i can :3

2432783 *SQUEE!* So glad to see you back! I've been around, just not as active writing, but now I'm feelin' the muse again. How have you been? You should TOTALLY check out our Stalker Sundays and come hang with us. Are you back to writing? :raritystarry:

hey, back at fimfiction, sorry i was gone so long

Thanks for taking an interest in my take on "Reflections". I hope that when you read it, you enjoy it.

Also, I do plan on doing more with Sombra someday. Hopefully.

Pineapples. That is all.

Hi. :derpytongue2:

2374003 You're welcome :twilightsmile: While I have a humongous reading list, I do go through it periodically and get to the smaller fics first 'cause that's usually the only size I have time to read most of the time. I very rarely add non-King Sombra stories, but my brony husband is a Sunset Shimmer fan and this one's description caught my eye, so the chances I'll read it above older stuff is actually very good.

Thanks for adding my story to your bookshelf! :pinkiehappy:

I have the same problem. :rainbowlaugh: I add every story that looks interesting to the Read It Later list, and half of them I'll never even look at.


Beep beep, I'm a pineapple! :pinkiehappy:

Heh, you're a nut. An adorable nut! :twilightsmile:

Beep beep, I'm a pineapple! :pinkiehappy:
