As promised, I have just submitted the sequel to Blueblood: Hero of Equestria, so just in case anyone who read that and wants to keep up with Blueblood's continuing misadventures, the sequel can be found here:

TThe Blueblood Papers: Royal Blood
As Equestrian forces march into the Changeling heartlands, Blueblood must rely on his instincts of self-preservation, deception, and sheer blind luck to survive. Equine military fiction in the style of Flashman and Ciaphas Cain.

*Blueblood will continue in a serparate story* guess i'm following you instead of the story noa.

Your pretty much writing a combination of Cain and Sharpe. The charming, cowardly, good hearted, and well humoured Cain, while adding the tedium of the military/officer life Sharpes books add as well as “borrowing” a few scenes - literally Finished Sharpes Eagle only a few days before reading the chapter so the bridge scenes was still fresh in mind.

Just do remember, while Cain was a cowardly man in his early years, as the books go on while he still makes out all his actions to just be self serving, cowardly and just plane undeserving of any praise or honour, after Perila (think that’s how it’s spelled) he starts maturing quite fast and his actions more heroic and actually good, and by his retirement is literally the hero he’s made out to be in the propaganda, only if he can’t see it himself - id properly say by the time he’s reached the 597th he’s pretty much the hero he’s made out to be, just again, he struggles to see it.

Thanks so much for the favorite and follow! Glad you enjoyed reading My Only Sunshine!

Trying not to be rude or anything, but can we get a new blog post? It’s been three years and it be nice to see how you’re doing. If not, thanks anyways and I can’t wait for the next chapter in your story!
