my friend and i have been keeping tabs on this story for a while, and we both love it so much. its crazy amazing, right down to the last detail. as far as appledash fanfics, or even mlp fics in general, this is by far the best i've ever read. at first, i found this on fimfiction.net, but when there werent anymore chapters there, i came to deviantart. this story is so good, it's the reason i MADE a deviantart. this account was created for the sole purpose of reading your story.
anyway, i can totally see exactly how much you've put into all these chapters, and although i'm pretty disappointed that the next chapter still isnt up, i respect as a fellow author that it can be hard to finish a chapter quickly AND make it good AND not piss off your awaiting readers for making them wait AND juggle whatever else may be going on in your life, as well as your motivation or lack thereof to finish a story or chapter. the point of my long rambling is that i get it, and that while i really hope you finish this as soon as is possible for you, feel free to take the time you need. after all, you can't rush perfection, and story is sure as hell perfection.
