Quiververse Bonus Reel - Vignette Two
  “You know these ponies?”
  As the various nobles and elite chattered amongst themselves, Rarity found herself caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place as she stood between them and her friends from back home in Ponyville. Since not long after her arrival in Canterlot, she’d spent most of her time ingratiating herself with Fancy Pants and his entourage, the cream of the city’s crop. And thanks to a number of factors outside of her control, the world that she’d hoped to be a part of had come crashing face-first into the world from which she’d come, and what standing she’d built up was about to collapse like a house of cards in a sudden breeze.
  Perhaps she was indulging in her Shadow Spade novels just a bit too much, but nonetheless, there was only one thing that she could do.
  “Yes.” Rarity mustered up her courage and firmly admitted, “Yes, I do know them. They may not be as sophisticated as s

Epilogue: Reunion with the Sun
      The soft singing of birds outside his window drifted into Quiver’s awareness as he awoke in his bed, sore but contented after the events of the previous evening. He silently thanked Sour for insisting that he grab a quick shower, and then wondered if he’d be thanking her for anything else as familiar smells caught his attention.
He emerged from his bedroom and made his way towards the kitchen, where he found his cousin at work on a pot of oatmeal and a skillet of hay bacon. Sour turned to him and smiled. “Hey, good timing. We’re a few minutes away from eating.”
“You made breakfast?”
“You made dinner. And got to be a big hero and bore your soul to your friends and ponies you barely knew. I figured that deserved a decent meal at least.”
Quiver smiled. “Thanks Sour.”
She let out a small laugh. “Don’t thank me yet, I’m hardly a master chef. Besides, I

Chapter Eight: Families in the Night
       Applejack found herself weighed down with deep thoughts as she and her siblings made their way home. Quiver’s story bothered her more than she’d admit, and something told her that she wasn’t the only one bothered by it. “Apple Bloom? You doin’ alright?”
“Ah guess. Feelin’ kinda drained by everythin’ that’s happened tonight, though.” She looked up at her elder sister and asked, “How could somepony act like that? How could Diamond Tiara’s mom, an’ Mister Quiver’s dad, treat ‘em like they do?”
“Ah dunno, darlin’. Ah honestly don’t.”
“Probably just as well we don’t.” Big McIntosh looked just as thoughtful as his sisters. “Ah mean, Quiver’s father had a lot on his plate, but that don’t excuse him treatin’ Quiver the way he did. An’ even that don’t exp

“What a stupid story!” The blissful feeling that had overtaken Quiver as he read out his story faded as soon as he heard his tormentor’s voice. “Seriously? Nightmare Moon’s just a story for stupid little foals, Blunder Bill. Everypony knows that.”
Assorted snickers sounded amongst the other students as Quiver tried to defend himself. “But I did research…”
“It’s ridiculous, a pony treating something like that like it’s real!”
“I found the oldest versions of the story in the senior edition of History of Equestria…”
“It’s just some scheme to steal candy from foals one night a year!”

Chapter Seven: Scars Revealed
       The evening since leaving work had been an emotional rollercoaster for Filthy Rich. Over several hours, he’d gone from terror to growing anxiety of one flavor or another to dread, with a brief plateau of relief before finally climaxing in utter shock. He tried his best to soothe his weary soul by reminding himself that his daughter was alive and alright, but that was little comfort as he looked upon the mare before him. Spoiled Rich, his beloved wife, the mother of his child…
“How can any of you waste your time with such pointless things when that insane stallion is just going on his merry way?!”
…and the monster who had struck his greatest treasure without a hint of remorse.

Chapter Six: Rock Bottom
After what had felt like an eternity, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon stopped running. Exhausted, the pair slowed to a halt in a cluster of trees and regained their bearings. “You…think…it…followed…us?”
“I…hope not…” Diamond finally regained her breath. “You okay?”
Silver nodded as she finished gasping for air. Like her friend, she wasn’t used to strenuous activity, at least of this sort. “So, what now?”
“Now…” Diamond looked about, her face a mask of confidence, and pointed towards a tree. “Here. There’s moss on this tree. Moss always grows on the north side of trees.”
The other filly tilted her head. “Are you sure? I thought that was a myth.”
“Well, everypony tells me that it does, and there’s…” Diamond walked around the tree to discover that most of its trunk was covered in moss. “…no sen

Chapter Five: Reasons to Fear
“Okay, gotta admit, this isn’t half bad.” Sour put out another helping of wild rice for herself and remarked, “You got the hang of a stove pretty well.”
“Kinda had to living on my own.” Quiver smirked as he speared another bit of broccoli with his fork and remarked, “I don’t want to have fast food every night.”
“Bad for the heart.” Edgar cawed inbetween pecks of his own meal.
The two cousins shared a chuckle at the raven’s remark. “Seriously though, the simpler the meal, the better. I’d love to do more complex stuff, but that takes practice.” The stallion rolled his eyes and noted, “No homemade pancake breakfast yet.” He noticed a smirk on the mare’s face and turned curious. “What?”
“Nothing. Anyway, I hope you don’t mind my setting a few things out in the front room. Just some equipment for my job, couple small things.&

Chapter Four: Sweet Reunions and Sad Signs
       Spoiled Rich sat at the edge of her pool, content to enjoy a few moments of peace as her servants refilled her glass of iced tea. The day had been pleasant thus far, for the most part, as the household staff had diligently kept to its duties and followed standing orders. It always helped her mood when her inferiors knew to keep to their place. One thing about all of this, however, seemed off. “Randolph?”
“Excuse me, ma’am…”
A disgusted snort escaped her nostrils. “Rosemary, did I ask for you by name?”
“No ma’am, but…”
“If I was addressing you, I would have given your name, not that of Randolph.” She sat up and turned to the youngish maid, who looked as though she dearly wanted to be somewhere else at the moment. “Now I can think of only two reasons that you might be responding to the name of the head of household.

Chapter Three: Something Sour This Way Comes
       The rest of the week went by with little incident, at least for Quiver’s part. As each day passed he found himself getting a little more anxious about his coming housemate. With no word yet from Gilded Lily regarding their arrival, the most he could do was keep their room clean and try to stay patient.
Patience, unfortunately, was not a virtue that he was good at practicing, though he had gotten better about it. And regardless, it was the end of the week, and a weekend at home was a decent enough consolation prize. He just had to get through the remainder of the day at work, and he would be in the clear.
A chime sounded from his list, and Quiver looked to find that he’d been moved to another area for pick. “Barely here for fifteen minutes. Must be a slow afternoon.” He then slipped out of his cart, moved his basket to the conveyor belt, and moved his cart to their designated waiting area. Li

Chapter Two: A Light Monday
       Ponyville Schoolhouse was blissfully quiet as Cheerilee entered early that Monday morning, long before her students came in for classes. A teacher’s work began long before that of her students on a school day, after all, and she had some things to organize before the start of classes. Also, as much as she enjoyed seeing and hearing her students at work, it was nice to be alone on a given morning. A cup of coffee, a pastry, and a lesson plan to put the final touches on, all with peace and…
“Miss Cheerilee.” The mare looked up from her desk to find her addressor giving her an imperial gaze. “I require a word with you.”
The schoolteacher put on an accommodating smile. “Of course, Mrs. Rich. How can I help you this morning?”

Chapter One: Twilight Time
       Excited chatter could be heard throughout the Ponyville Schoolhouse as the gathered students talked among themselves. The day was nearly done, with only a few minor things left to take care of before they were dismissed, and consequently, many of the colts and fillies present were eager to get home.
“Any plans for the weekend, Diamond Tiara?”
The proud young filly smirked. “Does it really matter what I do, Silver Spoon?” She really didn’t know what she was going to do, beyond the hopes that she’d be able to spend a little of it with her father, but she wasn’t going to elaborate on it too much. Not with certain fillies present. “But one thing’s for certain, I’m not going to be digging around in the dirt like some ponies.”

Just apart from all of them with a bottle of water held in one arm of his folding chair was Quiver Quill. He took a second to look over a number of cards on a nearby music stand before calling out, “Okay everyone, we ready to get this Q and A session underway?”

Worthy Opponent
  Shan Da Mei was not a fan of hospitals.
  This, perhaps, was a silly thing for a girl her age to be afraid of, but hospitals were something she long associated with needles and all sorts of other pointy things, and in her youth, pointy things often hurt. They didn’t hurt her as much now in her late teens, but strong early memories had stuck with her. Add that to the fact that the hospital before her was ancient and dilapidated, and she found herself fighting off a great deal of fear. A normal hospital was scary enough, but an old abandoned one? That was far scarier.
  Da Mei, however, had been summoned here for a reason, and she took a breath to calm herself. Even as she walked forward towards the hospital’s entrance, however, she found two conflicting thoughts going through her mind.
  I wish that my big brother was here.

A Shimmering New Year - Part Eight B
Granny Smith couldn’t help but be reminded of the number of times that she’d sat waiting in a hospital for either good or bad news as she found herself patiently waiting for someone to emerge from the bridge realm. Her granddaughter suddenly passing out was one thing to worry about, but all of her friends doing the same just made it worse. She knew they’d be alright, but that didn’t stop her from worrying. She’d buried far too many relatives in her time, after all, and the longer it took before the next funeral, the better.
Fortunately, today wasn’t that day as her granddaughters’ friends emerged from the portal, Apple Bloom among the first and Applejack among the last. Both moved to her as she stood up and gave her a warm hug. “Land sakes, darlin’s, you had me plum worried ‘bout you two!”

April started off strong, but ended horribly. I'm afraid I won't be getting any writing done until I can finish restoring and reconstructing everything that I've lost as a result of my own stupidity. But I've made fair progress on that, and I remain optimistic that I'll get something out before the end of this month. All I need is time to work.

T:A-R Arc Four - "Dark Glass" - Working on this and other Transformers stuff!
T:A-R Re-Edits - "Interrogations" - Waiting on Editor.
T:A-R Re-Edits - "Original Sins" - Waiting to be Edited.
Editing on Novel - "Halcyon Days" - Done for now!
Request Stories - One is in the planning stages.
PW! Entries (1+) - No clue on this, waiting on others.
PW!R Entries (10) - Working on these. Started on two.
MLP:FiM Stories - "A Mad Pony in a Box", "Rainbow Rocks: Quiververse Remix", "The First Evil", and "A Great and Powerful Tale" are WIP.

On the docket for May...

Commissions - These are open! 
Comic Script Submissions - I'm planning on writing some comic scripts for a website or two for pay.
Patreon - Gonna try and set up a Patreon account.
Customs - Still plenty of these to do, and I'm going to try and get some of them done.
MLP:FiM Stories - Hoping to start work on "Scars of the Sun" before the end of this month.

Journal posted April 30, 2018.
Update on 5/9/2018 - Reconstruction work is complete on everything that's been posted online for the Quiververse (plus a little bit besides), and I've rewritten the Vignette planned for this month. Expect it before the end of this week.
Update on 5/10/2018 - Another Vignette is written and in the can, and this month's Vignette is online and ready for everyone to enjoy.
Update on 5/14/2018 - The remaining Vignette that was lost when my computer went screwy has been rewritten. Now to other issues...oh, and the first of three chunks is written for "The First Evil".
Update on 5/21/2018 - The second and third chunks for "The First Evil" are done and finished. Now to move on to something else for a little bit, before getting back to the ponies...
Update on 5/24/2018 - Wrote up the first draft for a story request. Hopefully, it's well-received.
Going to do my best to get some work done before the end of the month. Wish me luck!
Okay folks, I'm happy to say that I'm swiftly reaching the recovery point from having lost so much of my stuff. Yay! And with that, I'm not at a point where I feel comfortable discussing a general plan for future writing releases.

Before the end of May, I hope to get a story request done, then start on the next installment of the Quiververse, Scars of the Sun.

By the end of June, I hope to start posting Scars of the Sun.

By the end of July, I hope to get a commission done, and then get started on another Quiververse installment, Many Happy Reunions.

By the end of August, I hope to post the next Quiververse Vignette, as well as another edit for a Transformers story. I think those are long overdue, don't you?

By the end of September, I hope to start posting Many Happy Reunions, and finish posting it by the end of October. Come November, I'll have another Q&A installment for the Quiververse, as well as start regular posting for A Mad Pony in a Box. Beyond all of that, I hope to finish my first draft for a future Quiververse installment, The First Evil, before the end of this year, and get started on two more - Legends of Magic and During the Games. With luck, both of those will be finished and posted sometime in 2019, with The First Evil coming in 2020.

Keep your fingers crossed in the meantime, folks.
  “You know these ponies?”

  As the various nobles and elite chattered amongst themselves, Rarity found herself caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place as she stood between them and her friends from back home in Ponyville. Since not long after her arrival in Canterlot, she’d spent most of her time ingratiating herself with Fancy Pants and his entourage, the cream of the city’s crop. And thanks to a number of factors outside of her control, the world that she’d hoped to be a part of had come crashing face-first into the world from which she’d come, and what standing she’d built up was about to collapse like a house of cards in a sudden breeze.

  Perhaps she was indulging in her Shadow Spade novels just a bit too much, but nonetheless, there was only one thing that she could do.

  “Yes.” Rarity mustered up her courage and firmly admitted, “Yes, I do know them. They may not be as sophisticated as some of you Canterlot ponies, but they are my best friends.” She turned back to face her friends and smiled. “And they are without a doubt the most important ponies I know.”

  A derisive snort sounded from behind her. “Important ponies? These ruffians?”

  Upper Crust’s tone was a perfect match for her husband’s. “Don’t make me laugh!”

  The pair proceeded to do exactly that, only for Fancy Pants to cut them off. “Well I for one find them charmingly rustic.” He waited just long enough for his fellow elites to gasp before he approached Twilight with approval. “And I think the dress you made for your friend is lovely.” He turned back towards Rarity with a chuckle, though the laugh clearly wasn’t intended towards her. “I dare say every mare in Canterlot will be wanting one.”

  Swiftly enough, Upper Crust rushed to Rarity’s side and purred, “Oh, I’d like to place my order right now.”

  Jet Set took the opposite side. “I think you should get two, darling.”

  Even Fancy Pants appeared surprised at how quickly the two brown-nosing ponies made their about-face, if his expression was any indication. “Er, yes, now then.” He quickly regained his composure and prompted, “Rarity, perhaps you’d be so kind as to introduce me to your friends?”

  The mare beamed. “With pleasure!” She crossed the distance and made her way to the earth pony mare with muddied hooves. “If you’ll allow me, I’ll begin with the mare whom I’ve known the longest. This is Applejack. Ponyville practically grew from the seeds her family planted, and its core rests with her family farm, Sweet Apple Acres.”

  At the stallion’s curious expression, Applejack made a nervous smile and doffed her hat in greeting. “Well, that’s a tiny bit more poetic than Ah’d put it, but it ain’t too far off. Right pleased to be introduced to ya, sir.”

  “Likewise my dear. Now, is this Sweet Apple Acres the same one which produces zap apple jam?”

  “The very same, sir. Afraid you’re a hair late to put in an order for this year's batch, but Ah’d be more’n happy to put your name down for next year.”

  The noblestallion made a pleased laugh. “I’m much obliged to you, miss.”

  Rarity suspected that there would be quite a few names down for orders of zap apple jam in the near future, but opted to clear her throat and carry on. “Next, this is Pinkamena Diane Pie, the preeminent party planner of Ponyville.”

  The pink party mare licked her face clean and offered a hoof. “Pinkie Pie for short, Sir Fancy Pants!”

  “Delighted. I assume that you handle all sorts of parties?”

  Pinkie nodded. “Except for political parties, though. Too much hot air.”

  Fancy Pants laughed at that, which prompted some additional laughter from the Canterlot elite. “Well, I certainly can’t fault you for thinking that. Are you a native of Ponyville as well?”

  “Nope. I moved there from Rockville when I was a little filly.” She pulled a business card from her mane and noted, “But if you’re ever looking for a good source of catering, here’s the card for the place I work at. We make good treats at Sugar Cube Corner.”

  He took up the card in his magic. “I’ll keep this in mind, though a menu would…” A pamphlet emerged from her mane as well, and soon joined the card with his approval. “I dare say, you’re prepared for anything.”

  Pinkie shrugged. “I try.”

  “And Pinkie’s not our only transplant.” Rarity gestured to the yellow pegasus among them. “This is Fluttershy. She’s Ponyville’s wildlife conservation officer, as well as something of an unofficial veterinarian. She has a fantastic way with animals, as you may have noticed.”

  “It’s my special talent.” Fluttershy, for her part, looked to be making a very strong effort to be brave for her friend. “Pleased to meet you, sir.”

  “And I you, miss. I assume you originate in Cloudsdale?”

  A nod. “I moved to Ponyville a few years ago, with a friend.”

  “Namely, me.” The prismatic pegasus among them stepped up with a cocky grin. “Rainbow Dash.”

  That prompted an eyebrow raise and a small grin. “Ah, the Wonderbolts’ trainer.”

  Rainbow Dash and Rarity’s eyes both went wide at that, though for different reasons. The latter found herself fighting back an embarrassed expression as the former grinned. “Geez Rarity, when you lie, you lie big!” Dash laughed and clarified, “I wish I was their trainer, but no. Someday though, I’m gonna be a Wonderbolt! You can count on it!”

  Fancy Pants accepted that with a laugh. “I look forward to seeing you at one of their derbies then.” His gaze turned to the last of their number as he prompted, “And last but not least is…?”

  Rarity regained her composure. “The last of my friends to come to Ponyville, a resident as of the recent Summer Sun Celebration. This is Twilight Sparkle. And the dress she’s wearing is, in fact, my gift to her, in honor of her birthday.”

  Fancy Pants smiled and nodded. “Happy Birthday, young mare.”

  “Thank you, sir, and I’m sorry if my party ended up disrupting yours.”

  He dismissively waved a hoof. “You’ve disrupted nothing. In fact, I suspect that I did more to disrupt your friend’s efforts at making a gift than you did anything of mine.” A few of his guests briefly looked disgruntled at that.

  “That’s as much my fault as it is yours,” Rarity admitted. “In any case, it’s thanks to her that I was able to stay in the palace in the first place. You see…”

  “Twilight Sparkle happens to be a very important pony to quite a few of us.” Heads turned to find a group of four new arrivals. Rarity wasn’t certain what attracted the attention of the Canterlot Elite besides Fancy Pants more between the young dragon or the alicorn, but the way they looked now could only be described as slack-jawed as the latter smiled. “And I for one couldn’t ignore my most treasured student’s birthday.”

  “Princess Celestia! Mom! Dad! Spike!” Twilight rushed forward and took her family into a tight embrace. “Where’s…?”

  “On assignment, unfortunately, but he sends his love.” Twilight Velvet happily hugged her daughter back. “It’s great to see you, Twilight.”

  “I’d say, especially considering we’ve barely seen you since you moved to Ponyville.” Night Light gave his daughter a reassuring grin. “Relax, that’s as much on us as it is you. We definitely need to visit the next chance we get, and get properly introduced to all these new friends of yours.”

  As Twilight beamed and began introductions of her own, Rarity’s gaze met that of Princess Celestia, and she gave a small smile. The pair went off to a secluded corner as Rarity ventured, “Forgive me for asking, your Highness, but you didn’t plan this, did you?”

  Celestia laughed. “Hardly, Rarity. But once I found out that Twilight’s party had been moved here to Canterlot, well, I had to do something. And making certain that her family was here was important, given how little she sees them anymore.” She smiled sadly and noted, “With any luck, that will change soon.”

  “Well, regardless, I do believe that I’ve learned something from this.” At the princess’ curious expression, Rarity explained, “No matter where you go in life, you should never forget that you are the product of your home and your friends. And that is something always to be proud of, no matter what.”

  Celestia raised an eyebrow. “Anything else?”

  The elegant unicorn made a nervous laugh. “Yes. That bending the truth will always come back to bite you in the end.”

  Outwardly, the alicorn smiled and nodded. On the inside, however, she wished that she’d learned that lesson much sooner than Rarity had, as quite a few truths she’d bent over the years had done exactly that, and she feared a few more were yet to come.
Quiververse Bonus Reel - Vignette Two
Another tweak to canon, this time with the events of Sweet and Elite. This was originally going to be less a change to canon and more a sort of deleted scene to reflect something that I wish had been there in the first place. Twilight throws a birthday party, and Spike isn't there? Nor her parents or the princess? The rewrite, however, ended up tweaking things, so there you are.

Category 3: Cast Photos

Status Guide
:star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: = Toys still need to be purchased for this photo.
:star-half::star-empty::star-empty: = Toys are purchased, photo is ready to be taken.
:star::star-empty::star-empty: = Photo is taken and requires editing.
:star::star::star-empty: = Photo has been edited.
:star::star::star: = Photo is posted.

A few notes. These are the minimum photos waiting to be taken - more may yet be coming beyond these. I'm using acronyms for two of these in order to help prevent spoilers. I suspect my more canny readers will be able to figure out what those acronyms stand for, but we'll see. In any case, they will be revealed over the course of the re-edits. Also, concerning the Mini-Cons - the ones pictured in the next photo are totally dependent upon whoever ends up in my collection next and completes a given group. One batch is set and waiting on future stories. Beyond that, if I manage to get Beta Maxx, you'll see a second batch, and if it's someone else, well...it'll be a while. When I have eight photos minimum ready to go and six installments for Arc Four posted, I will post the next set. Take note - those photos that are ready to be posted may not be among those photos actually posted.

Okay folks, I'm happy to say that I'm swiftly reaching the recovery point from having lost so much of my stuff. Yay! And with that, I'm not at a point where I feel comfortable discussing a general plan for future writing releases.

Before the end of May, I hope to get a story request done, then start on the next installment of the Quiververse, Scars of the Sun.

By the end of June, I hope to start posting Scars of the Sun.

By the end of July, I hope to get a commission done, and then get started on another Quiververse installment, Many Happy Reunions.

By the end of August, I hope to post the next Quiververse Vignette, as well as another edit for a Transformers story. I think those are long overdue, don't you?

By the end of September, I hope to start posting Many Happy Reunions, and finish posting it by the end of October. Come November, I'll have another Q&A installment for the Quiververse, as well as start regular posting for A Mad Pony in a Box. Beyond all of that, I hope to finish my first draft for a future Quiververse installment, The First Evil, before the end of this year, and get started on two more - Legends of Magic and During the Games. With luck, both of those will be finished and posted sometime in 2019, with The First Evil coming in 2020.

Keep your fingers crossed in the meantime, folks.

I liked that this was a well-done photo of an attractive young woman who clearly did a good job with her costume and makeup.
