    The Enchanted Carousel – Ch. 3 – Update Reminder + Commentary!

    I figure now that we don’t have the EASE OF FIMFICTION’S NOTIFICATION system, I’m going to start posting a little reminder blogpost a few days after every TEC/Sapphire update, just in case.

    ((Also, just a quick note, but my friends and I launched our original comic last week (the one that totally didn’t start as a RariTwi AU)! Go check it out here!))

    I’m SUPER happy with this chapter. It’s nice and short, but still feels impactful. I mentioned it in the author’s note for it, but being away from fimfic and not having to worry about metrics there has really done wonders for my writing.

    On the flipside, man, I am not going to lie, the permanent leave has really shown me just how reliant/addicted??? I was to the validation I got on there. I knew things would change once I made the permanent move, and in the end this is teaching me to stop relying on external validation, but it’s rough man.

    Still, I think the move was ultimately for the better. I think this is the first update in literal years that was driven out of my own joy and desire to update and write, as opposed to feeling like I HAVE to update YESTERDAY lest people forget about me!!!!!!

    The trials and tribulations of it all.

    Anyway, thanks again for reading and for the support!

      The Meeting Outside Ponyville

      by Monochromatic A crisp wind chilled Twilight Sparkle, her wings rustling at her side. Truthfully, she would have liked this meeting to happen inside Carousel Boutique, where she would be warm, but fitting a dragon inside there was, well, impossible.  So, there they all were instead—they being herself, Princess Luna and Cadance, Pinkie, Applejack, as well as Spike and Rainbow—all gathered in a prairie on the outskirts of Ponyville. Rarity had stayed back in the boutique to work, under the promise Twilight…

      This is pretty bad, but I only just now found out you moved to this here website. I realised I hadn’t seen an update from Enchanted Carousel in a while, so I went to see if there were any comments or blog posts. Yep, sure were. On the bright side, new chapter I wasn’t aware existed (have yet to read it, bit too late now. Time for bed). Glad to know about this though, time to bookmark this website.

      Only thing I can really say is that I hope that you remain happy and dedicated to finishing the Enchanted trilogy(?) though I have to wonder: Why are some of your earlier works not on your personal website such as “The Enchanted Library”?

      I’m so glad that you’re enjoying writing more. Some of my favorite MLP fanfiction stories are by you, and it makes me happy to know that you’re enjoying writing them!

        Thank you, Violets!
