It's been a long and bumpy road, 17. I'd been putting off reading this as long as I could so I could find the time to sit down and really enjoy it. Gotta say: I fuckin' enjoyed the HELL out of it. Few authors I've read from are able to craft a story into a piece such as this. Your way with words up to this point, from beginning to now, has found itself fleshed out and flowering to a point where I can only hope to be as good at this some day as you've proven to be.
Now all that awaits us is the ending. Bring it to a close, friend. From one foggy resident to another, this is one story that I want to see finished, no matter what it takes. We've all lived in this Hell. Now it's time for one of us to find our way out.
The Deaf Colt is denial, the refusal to listen to the truth in favor of a lie that sounded oh so much better than the painful alternative. And it had been getting in Lance's way as a defense mechanism, a memory block to keep him in blissful, abusive ignorance. Which makes The Sovereign truth: the painful, unpleasant truth.
But there's still one last piece of the puzzle to unlock, one that will tell him WHY he resorted to denial over truth....
....Please update again soon! I've been hooked on this masterpiece since forever. I need to see the conclusion, now that everything's out in the open. Pretty please update again soon!
This is the update we've been waiting for. Seems like Lance has gone through an extra-long mindmaze to get to this point. Guess we should expect it with a mind this twisty.
Congratulations, Brony17. This is a huge milestone in writing this story! You should feel proud. There's still some left, but this is great. That being said, I can hardly wait to see what's at the bottom of that pit....
