I’m re-evaluating my position on this matter lately.
Oh how I love cliffhangers. Or in this case: not doing what the audience expects. I might use all the questions I got yesterday in a few posts though. That is, IF Twilight and Rainbow can find DawnStar in the dark.
Any ideas where they should look? Or who they should get to help in the search?
Beginning of Chapter 2 - Midnight Vengeance
I would like to remind all of you that I can only move this comic forward if I get questions or suggestions on what to do next. Something like, “What is Twilight doing?”, or “Now that you fled from the hospital where do you plan to spend the night?”
The whole story is only 50% me. The other 50% are your questions and suggestions. Some of the questions I got in the past heavily influenced how the story moved on. Please, more of this!
For those, who didn’t get it. The hand in the last update was Crackpot. trying to show off to Dawn. She of course was so absorbed with the mirror she got a huge shock and ran away screaming.
And with that we leave
the Tom Cruise home for Special ponies ponyville hospital. This concludes chapter 2 of the story. The hospital arc took a lot longer than I wanted it to. Sorry everyone for taking so long with this.
Next up is chapter 3. Which I will call “Midnight Vengeance”. Stay tuned and you might actually be able to unravel the mysteries of this strange story.
I didn’t even know they can do this!
((Shoutout to Backy for the idea. Edit: Just had a talk with Doodlepony. If this gets more notes than backy’s I will make a nude version. But I never will anyway ;3 ))
Finally. The last part of DawnStar’s flashback is out. Thank you for staying with me trough the (mis)adventures of her youth and I hope you all can understand her a bit better now. If you want to know more about something of her past, feel free to ask it and if it’s not something I want to reveal later in the normal story, I will post a collection of answers sometime this weekend. And just a reminder, the next post will continue the normal story line in ponyville hospital.
I’d also like to offer a shout-out to a couple of great ponies, and pony artists, whose characters I used to fill the backgrounds of this page. First, thank you to SweetStar, for letting me borrow her clothes in the first Panel. In Panel 2 the amazingly stoned Mellowdash. A big thanks also goes to swfPony for the use of one of his flash games for the carpet eating. In Panel 3 Afro Discord by DocWario, Rock legend Poodle Hair by LordStevie, and little meat lover Reijana in the background. In Panel 4 the milk mare with the two giant … talents, Milky Way, the ever so crazy Frigid Drift and Queen of the butts Backy, A special thanks to Cindacry from whom I borrowed Aila's design for DawnStar’s mother. Ah, and before I forget another special thanks to the good folks at the MLP-Vector Club for the usage of some backgrounds.
Some last words. Don’t worry, I won’t take long.
I’ll continue this blog in the same fashion as I initially started it. Which means, I’ll directly or indirectly use the questions and suggestions I get to direct Dawn (or other ponies) trough the story. If you write me something inspiring and story fitting for what could happen next I might just use it. ;3
You didn’t really read all of this, did you?
The flashback / prestory will probably end after another 2 Strips. So either ask now or forever hold your peace. I’m thinking of keeping the comic layout for the normal updates too. Only the layout though. I’ll revert back to drawing lines, eyes, expressions etc either way. Just using this simple style to get the updates done somewhat faster. I’m not sure how well you are able to read them though. Since I draw them at approximately two times the size I upload them and tumblr resizes them in the fullview even more I guess. Any thoughts on that? Normal photoset updates after the flashback or keep this comic layout (only the layout)?
I got a lot more responses than I expected on that last text post. Got a lot of positive feedback as well as some critiques. Seems like there are more people interested in the story than I thought. Well, I said I’d bow to public opinion so everything will continue as it was.
Thanks for everyone who send me some nice words. You all really helped boost my confidence. I’ll try to be a bit more assertive … gotta rewatch that Iron Will episode some time.
Now, who might this new student be?
Alright, let’s get this flashback started!
