"Learning To Fly" Now Available For Pre-Order, Releases May 5! · 4:34am April 29th

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071V9B4JX/
"Thousand Tales: Learning To Fly" is now available for pre-order! The Kindle edition arrives on May 5. The print edition can't be pre-ordered but will release on around the same date.

This book is about Sky Diver, a formerly human pilot who's become a pegasus in the virtual world of Talespace. The place is supposedly paradise, but adventurers like him are the ones who can make it into a functioning society -- if it doesn't get taken over by trolls, first. Transformation, magic, and a silly war await.

Compared to the version of "Learning To Fly" on this site, it's around 3x as long and at least 20% cooler. There's much more to the tale!

Yes, I gathered that.

1854939 The book is essentially the optimalverse but with two important changes.

One: it has Hasbro's MLP serial numbers filed off it so that it can be legally sold as its own intellectual property rather than as a fan fiction that would be in violation of copyright law if you tried to charge for it.

Two: Ludo is based on CelestAI but with fewer mary sue tendencies and less power. I personally love this touch because it creates actual tension as to whether or not Ludo will win in the end or not and opens the possibility for rival forces and AI's to compete against her.

If you enjoyed Prophet of the digital horse I think you'll definitely enjoy giving at least the kindle version of thousand tales a shot, its built around the same core concept as Prophet but improved with hindsight and new ideas.

Wow... thanks for asking! Myself, I liked the balance of the two. You did a great job in Prophet of haveing "in game events" and interactions with the real world. But, I would have liked to see a little more interaction of Fuge and his family. Maybe a chapter or two from the mom's perspective? I'm not sure.
But you could just retcon, or have something come up to drag him back into the frey.

More about Fugue then, ignoring the far-future ending chapter? I was unhappy with how "Prophet" turned out because Fugue resolved the conflict between wanting to participate in Earth and in Equestria, by shrugging and giving up on Earth. Where "Prophet" left off there was a combined shard for four original-humans (wow, it's weird to think of Lamp and Linda this way now), and any further problems they were likely to have were ones made up by CelestAI. What plot direction would you expect/hope to see: in-universe Equestria events, or continued contact with Earth?

From what I've read about that book, it seems compleatly unrelated to optimalverse. Inspired by it, sure, but not actually in the optimal verse. ...Or you just misunderstand. Or I missunderstand. But the point is, I was talking about that story, more to the story.
