Very occasionally, I post pony stories. Twilight Sparkle is the best pony. I drink my tea with milk, no sugar. Those would be the important bits.

Pony Stories from Other Parts of the Internet.

It's a Dangerous Business, Going Out Your Door. Some call this a crossover, but it's not really. I call it a story written in the spirit of The Hobbit. Regardless, it's a lovely adventure story which is as much about the characters themselves as the hardships they face.

Constellations. There's something truly timeless about this story.

The Worst Bakers in Equestria Saga. Yes, apparently I like farces. Yes, this is exactly as silly as it sounds. But it has Luna accidently becoming a superhero and probably my favourite vision of Trixie. What's not to like?

Of course! Sugar in tea is for dealing with major life criseses only.

Ah, milk, no sugar. Truly the proper way to drink one's tea, wouldn't you say old bean?

I'm going to be publishing a new story today... except that I lied to you twice there. Actually it's an an old story I wrote a long time ago—around the same time I wrote Never So Far Away to be honest. And what's more, I'm not "officially" publishing it via the moderation queue and all that jazz. For the moment, this one is just for people who are reading this blog post and feel like clicking the link at the end.

Why did I never publish? I don't know. I guess I wasn't in the best state from a mental health point of view at the time. And, well, I ended up in a cycle of perfectionism. I had to respond to ever pre-reader comment, address every imperfection both real and imagined. Sigh. People had said some very nice things about Never So Far Away and I felt under so much pressure to follow up. Eventually it ended up as a source of stress rather than something I enjoyed and so it all petered out.

Time has passed now. I've put some distance between the me now and the idiot past-me of then. So I think it's high time I just published those words. It would be a shame to let them go to waste.

Now, I think the story is best read relatively quickly, in a few reading sessions say, so I was reluctant to release it a chapter at a time. But it's clear that if I took that approach I'd never manage to be happy with all the chapters at once, but by doing this a chapter at a time, there's a chance I can finish by going one step at a time. So I'm posting them one at a time and when they're all there, maybe I'll post to the site at large.

What you do is up to you. Read it only if you want to. The story is called The Price for Luna.

The Summer Solstice approaches and Equestria prepares for the welcome break, but in Canterlot Celestia plans in secret for the return of Nightmare Moon. Her duty is clear: take the five known Elements of Harmony and cast her own sister from the world forever. So what if her heart shatters into a million pieces? A fair price for the safety of all.

Yet as the hour approaches, Celestia’s resolve weakens as she is haunted by memories of happier times. She starts to entertain an insane, maybe treasonous, plan, but a plan that might just return her sister to her.

But no plan, however well thought out, ever survives execution and as matters spiral out of control strengths sequestered deep within others will surprise even the celestial princess herself. As you well know, this story has a happy ending but it is the journey that matters.

The Price for Luna

PS: The moment I hit publish, I'm probably going to be vanishing from fimfiction to hide in the finest traditions of Fluttershy. Don't expect me back to answer any comments for a while.
