Life, family emergency, loss
Hello friends,
Yesterday morning, my father passed away very unexpectedly. I was visiting my home at the time. I was very close to him.
My life will start change in so many ways, now that I've lost but the way that it will start to hurt us first when we need some time to mourn is that money will run out. My father supported all of us because he had a very good job, and he was planning on working for a few more years. A lot of supporting myself and my family will fall to me now, but my brother and I are still full time students, and we cannot get jobs yet. The price of living in Boston is very high, and I only have rent money saved up for five more months in my apartment. My program at school lasts longer than that, and this is all very scary for me. I feel terrible asking for money at a time like this, but I know that keeping our life steady and being able to pay bills and afford meals is important.
It would give me some comfort if anyone could contribute to my Patreon:

Random poll: What do you think, are Trixie's parents Jack Pot and/or the orange mare from the IDW comics?

34 deviants said I dont know, man. Why are you asking me?

27 deviants said Jack Pot was officially implied(though nothing more), so I think he is her dad, but I believe her mom's a different mare because the comic appearance isn't fully canon

Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve: Finale (Part 9)
Previous Part:  Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve: Finale (Part 8) by Evil-DeC0Y
The first Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming(2012): Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve by Evil-DeC0Y


So here it is, the culmination of over six years of a story(this makes it sound like there was a plan all along, as opposed to me just winging it every year like I actually did).

This is easily the biggest comic I have ever made, by almost ten panels. So necessary to say there's a lot to get into here in the description. (Also I'm sorry if it takes a while to load being such a large file, but please try to avoid the description before you read the comic to avoid spoilers). All together this year had over 130 panels, almost double the second highest.

First of all, from the comments I got over the course of this year's 'TvHWE', it was obvious to me there were going to be some people who aren't happy with the ending. Some people wanted a bittersweet ending where Ghost Aunt Bea still died in the blizzard but Trixie still manages to become a good pony. While some were wanting other less happy conclusions.
I apologize that this may not have been the climax you wanted, but I'm not going to lie, I'm an absolute sucker for a happy ending, especially in Christmas stories(I cry watching It's a Wonderful Life' every year).

With only so many panels and Trixie being at her parent's house I wasn't able to make as many differences to "the timeline" as I would've liked. I threw a few things in there, like I added taped pictures to the mirror in Trixie's room(each with a little bit of Aunt Bea in them), and Jack Pot not being worried about blizzards anymore.

I realize there are some unanswered questions, but I wanted to make sure all of the big ones were taken care of, and I didn't want to make a whole extra comic that just turned into a "Question and Answers" segment. I do have actual answers for the questions that I didn't get to in this comic, so instead what I will be doing is answering any questions yall might have in the comments.

As I said last year in the journal concerning the future of 'Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming', I'm not closing the door on it, I can easily see me putting out shorter comics come future Christmases. I just do not believe I'll do anymore with the size or seriousness(since this is at it's heart a light comedy) of this year, or last year's story of Trixie trying to steal Hearth's Warming.

With this story starting as just a funny spoof of 'A Christmas Carol' I thought ending it with a relevant quote from the book would be fitting.

Previous Part:  Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve: Finale (Part 7) by Evil-DeC0Y
Next Part:  Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve: Finale (Part 9) by Evil-DeC0Y

Valentine's Day? That's a funny way to spell Christmas time...
So yeah, this has taken (and is still taking) a lot longer than I was expecting. 

I tried to add a bit more humor in this part than was in the last two, since at its heart 'Trixie Vs.' is a comedy series. But I also took care with the timing and the type of comedy because didnt want to ruin the mood since this part has probably one of the most serious scene's I've ever done. Hopefully neither missed its mark.

There is very likely only one more part left, and I'm hoping for a much quicker turn out than this part took.

I did have an extra part to this comic that I cut out at the last minute. It had Trixie remarking on the fact that she couldn't even use her body heat to save Ghost and that there was nothing she do to help. I ended up removing it because it felt like it was a little clunky and obvious, and it didnt really add anything.

There's actually very little lore for the Fire of Friendship, outside of the original Hearth's Warming Eve episode it's only ever shown as a tree topper in season 8, and disregarded as a myth by Starlight Glimmer.

I will say it was fun looking through the old years for the right scenes for the flashback. Brought back some nice memories and even some laughs at some of the jokes I had forgotten.

Next Part:  Trixie Vs. Hearth's Warming Eve: Finale (Part 8) by Evil-DeC0Y


So this is VERY late, but sadly I have a good reason for it.
If you read my Christmas Day journal you saw that I was delayed due to a family emergency, and at the time of writing it seemed like things were looking better and everything might be okay, but unfortunately that was not the case and it turned out to be a worst case scenario sort of deal. 
And with Christmas and New Years happening as well it completely threw all of my plans out the window, and by the time things settled back to normal my momentum was completely gone.

With this being a dialogue heavy installment there isnt really much to talk about here in the description, but if you think of anything you want to discuss about it in the comments feel free to say something.
So in case it's been long enough that you've forgotten; last we left Trixie she had just found out her long-time companion/scolder Ghost was actually her aunt that she shares the name Beatrix with. 

Needless to say their are some... unresolved issues in the Lulamoon family. Ghost/Bean/Beatrix resents Jack Pot for having a seemingly easier life, with his magic, his cutie mark apparently his relationship with their dad, and on the other side Jack Pot is exasperated by his sister's actions.
And Trixie is torn because she obviously recognizes that Ghost is in the wrong and she's defensive of her dad, but Ghost is her friend and she's been in a similar place and was lucky enough to have other ponies there for her when she needed it. and she knows how Ghost's story ends. Ultimately she just wants to help her misguided friend get off of a destructive path in the same way her friend helped her.

Most importantly, Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have or will have a grand and joyful Christmas Day!

Secondly... so needless to say, I very sadly did not finish this year's Trixie Vs Hearth's Warming before Christmas Day. There was just too much story and not enough time. Plus there was a family tragedy on Christmas Eve-Eve which understandably threw me off a bit,

I have two parts left to do, first being an almost finished part 7, and then part 8 to wrap it all up (maybe a part 9 if the dialogue requires more room) hopefully by New Years. Because like I said several weeks ago, not many people want to read a Christmas story in January. (And I certainly don't want to repeat what happened in 2016/17)

:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
