I've been thinking over your comments and I'm beside myself that No Nose helped to lift your spirits during such a difficult time. I don't consider myself to be a top-tier writer, but if I helped to bring a little happiness and a little relief, then I think I've succeeded in my core reason for writing.

Then I have a more surprising story for you. I think, a lot of authors here have no reason to sell themselves short. Maybe I’m a little biased because my first language isn’t English, it´s German but I think after all this time, I have a good grip on the English language matrix. What brings a german guy into English MLP fanfics you may ask? Simple: Fallout Equestria, there was an attempt to translate the story to German, so I gave it a try and after a few chapters it ended. So, I had two options: 1. Wait until the translation is complete 2. Continue in English. I took the second option. My English skills at that time were pretty bad, I was the guy that would refuse to watch a movie in English even with subtitles.

So, I struggled through that famous fanfic, looking up every word I did not know and after a time I had fewer and fewer problems understanding the text. My school English helped me but in school English was not really fun but now I had fun reading an English text. The next fanfic followed and the next and the next…Now there are 75 fic´s in my favoured folder.

I was really impressed by the quality of many stories. Today, I would say that the difference between a professional author and a fanfic author is often only a lector and a publisher but not the writing skills. I have always been a reading person, my love for books started in 4th grade and since then I have never been without a book. I have read a lot of classics and concluded that not every book, that is famous, is also a good read.

Fanfic´s became even a part of my job. I work at the attendance desk of an emergency room in a medium sized hospital in one of Germany’s big cities. I’m the usual nightshift guy, I only work dayshift when one of my co-workers is ill. So, after the evening rush of patients and ambulances dies down, usually between Midnight and 1 AM, I grab my tablet and read fanfics. So that’s the reason why I have 75 fics in my favoured folder. Now you can ask yourself what is more likely, that I have a bad taste ore that a lot of you guys are awesome storytellers… :pinkiehappy:

Enjoy the sequel, and please let me know what you think! (Just please don't break your arm this time.

I will. With motorcycle-season being over, the chances are good. I save that for next spring. :derpyderp1:

Thank you for following, even if I’m only a reader.:twilightsmile:

Thank so very much for the wonderful comment, Nighty! I've been thinking over your comments and I'm beside myself that No Nose helped to lift your spirits during such a difficult time. I don't consider myself to be a top-tier writer, but if I helped to bring a little happiness and a little relief, then I think I've succeeded in my core reason for writing. You owe me nothing, but I offer my gratitude to you for both reading my story and for sharing yours.

And with a name like Baked Bean, how could he be anything but a cook? :twilightsmile:

Enjoy the sequel, and please let me know what you think! (Just please don't break your arm this time. :twilightsheepish:)

Hi Irrespective. I think I own you some gratitude.

Last Christmas Eve I stepped out of the shower, slipped and dropped on my right arm. At first, I thought it was nothing but after one hour or so it started to hurt badly. So, I asked my wife to drive me to work, I work in a hospital, my co-workers made an x-ray, that showed that I had fractured my radius. Also, my arm needed surgery. Nice Christmas present by the way. Other people get cookies, I get five screws to keep my radius together.

Your Fic “No Nose Knows” was with me on my tablet and helped me through the night after surgery. I was not able to sleep and filled with painkillers, so reading Baked Bean´s and Celestia´s adventures saved me from feeling miserable. It made my long night a lot better.

I think someone as Celestia needs someone like Baked Bean to keep her down to earth. Leaders are often surrounded by people of vile interest and selfishness. Somebody honest, loyal and simple can be very precious. By the way, cooking is one of my hobbies, so I loved that you made him a cook.

I should have written this comment sooner. I am looking forward to the sequel.

I did. I never was much into comics but I do remember the old 90's cartoons. Not too much of a surprise since he was 95, but still a sad day. :fluttercry:

Sneak Peek · 5:38pm 10 hours ago

Over the past two to three weeks, I have been working on an all-new story entitled With Celestia as My Witness. I am pleased to report that it is almost done, and I will soon unleash my creation upon the world.

But in the meantime, here's a little preview for you to enjoy. :yay:
