    How is Everyone Doing

    Well two months into this year just wanted to know how everyone was doing. I'm doing a lot of other fanfiction writing and working on my original series as well. Just got the first book looked over on Reedsy and hopefully I'll be able to make it into its really ready state soon.

    2nd Anniversary of My Best One Shot

    Hey guys. Been a while since my last blog post. Hope you are all doing well. Just thought I'd remind my followers that this is the 2nd anniversary of my most loved one shot, Goodbye My Child. It features one of (if not the) most beloved MLP FIM ocs. Nyx from Pen Stroke's Past Sins. This fanfic goes by the theory that Alicorns are not immortal but live longer than most ponies. Of course that's not my headcanon as those of you who have read the Luster Dawn New Days know. If you have not read that

    2nd Anniversary

    Well the title says it. It was two years ago today (late by one day by this clock but its still only 8:36 pm Aug 20th where I live) that I joined this site. Started by doing a fic for Canterlot Wedding, then had a long mission trying to help those that were sad by the possibility of Twilight outliving her friends. Now I'm just writing other stories. Don't have any other MLP stories in my mind right now. Still doing Fairy Tail and Star Wars writing, might do something pokemon related later.

    Anniversary of New Days

    A bit late by two days but what the heck. It was one year ago that I undid the two stories of Passing On Together and Luster Dawn Friendship Successor to combine them into one story in the hopes of a better rating. Didn't succeed in that but ah well. I just thought I'd blog on it. If anyone wants to talk on that or anything else go ahead.

Well thanks. Yeah my headcanon is mainly my Luster Dawn story. I have a different idea for how Celestia and Luna lived so long. Their power to raise the sun and moon, it said in a book I read about on the MLP wiki that raising those rejuvenated the sisters or their magic, and one thing I heard was it was cause they possessed immense magic power which can still fit in. Even if that book has been contradicted in some cases they don't appear in the final episode aside from a flashback. Still nothing is for sure.

Hoo, boy...I kinda love how you've delved into the nasty implications of immortality. Not something that people really like to touch on, but something that needs to be touched on more often.

My thought is: it's not so much that alicorns are immortal as that—barring accidents—they die on their own terms (meaning that unless the former diarchs were to choose otherwise, their post-retirement life expectancy would likely be no more than that of any mare in her prime; and if you've ever read the story of Philemon and Baucis, that's likely Cadance's ultimate fate, including the part where giant trees grow overnight from her and Shining Armor's graves). Twilight's purview is friendship (and, to use the Greek terms, possibly agape as well as philia); if she found herself outliving all of her friends, she would choose to only do so by long enough to prepare Lustre or someone to step up and avoid a succession crisis.

(And that's if all of the element-bearers don't already have, or ultimately choose to have, all of their life forces bound together like the Wielders from Under the Aegis, if you've ever read that one...although that could cause its own succession crisis if somepony met a fatal accident. But I digress)

As for dragons: while they seem to be very long-lived, I doubt that they're immortal, either. Some people posit that Spike would still be alive and well in the Gen 5 era; my thought is that if he's still alive then, he wouldn't have much time left.

Thanks for the follow
