Sometimes the magic of friendship isn't all rainbow lasers and group songs, or even big plans of redemption and grand speeches; sometimes it's just being friends with someone.

Two blog entries in the same month?! What could possibly have brought on such jubilant lack of sanity? In my case, I’m just very happy that seven months after its last update, my favourite of my stories now finally has a third chapter!

Hi everypony!

I’m forbloodysummer. Having tried all the different options, I prefer the name with no spaces or capitals, please, and it's best shortened to ‘Summer’ rather than ‘Bloody,’ (and in that context, I think it looks best with a capital, just to be awkward).*

You may notice that one of my stories is about five times more popular than the rest; that’s the only time I’ve written Chrysalis and Celestia, and some people have asked for more. I don’t have anything planned for those two at the moment, so if you came to this page from that story then all I can really do is point you in the direction of my other work, and suggest reasons that those stories might appeal to you, even if they do involve different characters.

Everything below here contains some spoilers for Why Are You Here, Your Majesty? and hints as to what’s in other stories; I don’t know if you’d call them spoilers when they’re not too far removed from what’s in the story descriptions.

If you liked that story’s approach to villains; not rewriting them as different characters, redeeming them or necessarily excusing what they’ve done, but making their actions understandable and showing their side of the story, or if you liked that story’s format of a quiet conversation, especially the first chapter’s musings on how to go on after being defeated, then I’d suggest my ongoing work The Song That Makes You Lose It.

If it appealed to you because of the headcanon thing, then my latest story, The Dazzlings Get Too Meta For Their Own Good, has a couple I’m quite proud of.

If you liked Chrysalis swanning around being a bit magnificent even after her defeat, and generally poking fun at those who defeated her, then the first chapter of Rainbow Dash Is A Massive Fanny might appeal to you, and if you liked the way it took established events and suggested a more tragic new perspective, then the second chapter too. If recommending it by chapter didn’t highlight it enough, I should probably mention that that (two-chapter) story has a big shift in tone and subject halfway through, and it might be more enjoyable if you’re aware of that when going into it. The story may also be less juvenile than the title makes it sound.

And if you enjoyed reading Celestia being kind and keeping the same good-natured, innocent tone as an episode of the show, then I think the last story, King Of The Stingers, captures that best of anything I’ve done.

If it’s specifically Chrysalis and Celestia you’re after, then there’s not a lot else I can offer, as that’s the only story I’ve written for those two, and I don’t have any others planned. I would, however, very much recommend this one, this one and this one.

If it’s Chrysalis shipping stuff more generally (as my story could be interpreted that way), and you’re happy for it to be with Twilight rather than Celestia, then you really, really need to read these two.

Other things I should mention are that the wonderful artwork on this page is by Lucy Tan (who is my favourite), I have some old, non-FIM stories published on fanfiction.net, I read and write more about Equestria Girls than the show itself, and while I love writing and I spend a lot of time on this site, there are other things I’m really meant to be doing with my time instead, so I write when I can, and regular update schedules are beyond me.

Adagio Dazzle, Fluttershy, Spitfire, Derpy, Maud Pie and Chrysalis; that’s where it’s at for me.

*I don’t usually get funny about that sort of thing, but the name just looks weird when spaced or capitalised, like it emphasises each individual word too much. And ‘bloody’ in that instance is an expletive rather than a literal descriptor, more in the context of ‘seventy-six bloody trombones’ than ‘blood and bloody ashes,’ so on its own it sounds a bit more gory than intended.

2443661 Haven't managed it, sorry, it's gone 4 a.m. and I'm off to bed, will hopefully get the chance to write a decent reply tomorrow.

2443619 Yeah it's all good, just haven't had a chance to respond yet, sorry. Dinner + replying to others + trying to get some things done IRL etc. Thanks for the follow, by the way. I'll reply as soon as I have the chance, hopefully tonight but I can't promise anything - I'm rarely consistent on that front, I'm afraid, sometimes replying in an hour and sometimes in two days.

I think I've only noticed the bell not working once, a few months ago, but you're not the first person to mention it, so yeah there may be an occasional bug in the notification system or something.

Hmm... Uh, Summer? Is the the bell box working? I replied to your comment, but you didn't respond. I don't know if you didn't get it or if you did get it and are just talking a break from writing super long comments.

I feel I need to check because it seems to keep happening. :facehoof:

Hey, bloodysummer. I think you may want to see this. :raritywink:
