Writer's Recap: The Shape of Things to Come · 1:18am April 2nd

This chapter served really as a final wrap-up, and a way to show the progress that Twilight’s made. Reasonably, you wouldn’t see much progress after only a week, but that wasn’t the point. All else I would say is we shouldn’t think too harshly of Twilight: If your first encounter with a group was them kicking in the door on your brother’s wedding, shooting your mentor in the chest, tying everyone up and holding you for ransom, you’d hold them in pretty low regards, too.

Writer's Recap: Everything Is Going to Be Fine · 12:00am April 1st

This was another chapter that tasked me, in part because all I knew was that Twilight was going to address the town, and that it was going to end with, “Everything was going to be fine.”

Writer's Recap: What Ponies Believe In · 12:40am March 31st

It’s been a while since I started this chapter and I don’t remember all the details, but I’m confident that what started it all was the line, “You weren’t ever a bad friend.”

Writer's Recap: The Other Stranger · 10:45pm March 29th

I actually had a pretty easy time with this one. The only real challenge I had was trying to find the right flow and the appropriate content. Once I had that, the words more or less fell into place without too much struggle on my part.

Writer's Recap: What Nymphs Want · 6:27pm March 28th

Blog up early.

Best you read the chapter first.


Another transition chapter, I actually managed to get this in mostly one go, although it did still take several months to actually get down to writing it because I took a break in the middle.

Writer's Recap: Face Off · 11:34pm March 26th

This one took a few tries before I could actually figure out the flow of things, because I wasn’t sure how to get Twilight alone with Lyra; that’s one hazard of starting from the end and working backwards. I knew that I wanted to address a few things, though, one of which was, if Lyra is a changeling, then how do we explain the obvious hypnosis at the wedding? That naturally led into, “How is Lyra related to Chrysalis, if at all?”

Writer's Recap: In Defense / Friends and Strangers · 11:07pm March 25th

I did very little revision to "In Defense" because in the grand scheme of things, it’s not really that important, outside of serving to transition from one scene to another. It just sort of happened.

I also wanted Pinkie Pie to say “Sha-zam.” I admit that matters for a lot more than it really should.

Writer's Recap: What Was Said · 10:17pm March 24th

The original draft of this chapter was much more political in nature, but I decided to ditch that angle because it didn’t really serve any narrative purpose. I was getting sick of politics at the time (I still am), so it didn’t make sense to include something that would’ve made me not enjoy writing.

A thank you · 7:27pm March 24th

The result of publishing The Strangers in Ponyville has not only been attention on the story, but also several readers checking out my other works as well.

I want to extend a note of thanks to everyone for giving me a chance, and to say that you should extend some thank also to the good nightwalker, whose input actually helped bring about the story you are now reading.
