Blueblood's captors said, "For you, the war is over." How wrong they were.

And yes, I know I said I'd call it 'Captive Blood' earlier, but 'Bound By Blood' has extra alliterative appeal. I do hope you enjoy it. The usual monthly updates will proceed as normal from here on (hopefully).

I'm definitely carrying on with the series. I'll need a bit of time to plan but Blueblood will return in the new year.

So is the blue blood papers now officially over or do you plan to continue more entries to it, just asking because it's a good story combining 40k war stories with an mlp uniqueness and I am curious if you are planning to continue it or it now officially over?

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you took the time to read all of it and I hope my future chapters don't disappoint.

Love your writing of Blueblood! I haven’t read the original Black Library sources (although I plan to), so I judge him based purely on my own opinion.

While he may be cowardly at times, and he rather snobbish and aristocratic, he is a genuinely talented hero and important figure in his own right. His character is deepened by his disdain for himself, which honestly is something I have not seen a lot of in fiction, especially when the looked down on actions are actually rather commendable. And above all else, I feel the entire first book of his story is tinged with tragedy. He regrets so much, and you’ve painted that stain of shame onto his memoirs. Red Coat, Crimson Arrow, Moth, and the countless people who have been touched by the horrors of war: I felt their regrets and defeats as surely as if I myself had seen it.

I commend you on your story. It’s one of the best I’ve read on this site, and still fills me with a sense of tragic melancholy for Blueblood as I write this comment. I’m comforted by the notion that he might join those he lost on the other side of the veil. May Faust rest his weary soul in peace.
