I am immensely pleased to announce that after over a year, Chapter Five of my story Citizen Weevil has been written, edited thoroughly and uploaded for all your reading pleasure

Now look, I'll put my hands up and say it: I am sorry that it took over a year for this story to be updated. I had a lot of stuff on my plate, including getting Maternal Instinct finished, work, my slow writing and writer's block. I know those are pretty expected excuses by now, and I'm sorry, but that's just the case.

Now that I've finally finished chapter five, I want to assure you all know that I do intend to continue on with this story. I am deeply invested in this story and its characters; the Slice of Life stories of Weevil and his friends and family are something I'll always loving coming back to, even when I'm also writing other stories on the side (including another short one I'm working on right now as well).

Anyway, I hope you will all enjoy this chapter and to those of you who've still been following my story all this time especially, I thank you so immensely for all your loyalty and patience.

Hmm, well... sure, as long as the writers handle it well, as with most concepts. A child can be one of THE greatest product of a two people's love for each other, and the romance between these two was a huge deal in their debut episode. However, there is one particular way I'd prefer to see it done and would give the writers infinite props if that could pull it off. 


Have Shining and Cadence adopt a foal. 

Already see where this is going? Yes, I'm suggesting they adopt a Changeling foal/nymph to raise as their own. The cross-species adoption trope is always an interesting concept, and yeah, there is naturally the irony of SA and Cadence adopting a member of a race whose Queen tried to destroy their lives, which would be an ever present elephant in the room. This specific concept has been attempted several times in fanfiction albeit with mixed results. 

How would they find the kid? What process did they go through to decide to adopt and raise her? Well, I guess I'd leave that up to the show writers, who I'd definitely trust to pull it off. 

And that doesn't at all mean Skyla has to be sidelined and forgotten; on the contrary, they could give the Royal Couple two daughters: the snarky, troublemaking Skyla and the upbeat, optimistic, sometimes naive Aphid (the changeling, duh). 

And ba-ba-boom, you've got a new pair of Royal Sisters and two of the six new main characters for G5, right there.

That's my thoughts on the matter, but what about you? Do you want or think the couple should have a kid? If so, why and how would you see the concept executed? If not, why? I'm curious to hear your opinions on this.
Also, to my fellow MLP fans, do you know why I love Ruby/Sapphire so much more than Shining/Cadence? Because despite their lack of screentime, I actually CARE about them and their relationship in the show, instead of what is implied and what we turn into fanfiction/headcanon.
Steven Bomb 3 has come and passed. Absolutely loved it! Best episode for me? Onion Friend! Love that little guy.

I have an idea for a Princess Cadence Slice of Life fic which pokes fun at the irony that, while Princess Cadence was created with the expectation she would be the princess that the intended audience, young girls, would connect with, she is overshadowed in the MLP fandom by Princess Luna and Twilight.

Basically, the premise is this: In-Universe, Princess Cadence reads a newspaper one day to find that, in the opinion polls, Princess Luna and Princess Twilight had surged far ahead of her, even slightly Princess Celestia. She is, in effect, left behind as the least popular of all four Alicorn Princesses of Equestria in general except the Crystal Empire. 

Even though she holds no resentment or envy to Luna and Twilight, this bothers her, since she was brought up with the expectation that, whereas Princess Celestia would be the Alicorn wearing the Princess-y mask, she would be the Princess most charming and approachable to the public, the royalty connection with the pony masses - a role which she is now failing with flying colors. This prompts her to go on a (Mis-)adventure of self-discovery, to discover the source of her own failings while learning what it means to be a beloved princess. 

What do you think?

Hmm, I remember you bringing this concern up some time ago, and I can certainly see where it comes from.

Like I believe I said that time, I think the main problem with Cadence stems from the fact she comes off as "too perfect", especially compared to Twilight and Luna. She doesn't have the emotional weight Luna has nor the character progression or adorkableness of Twilight.

Honestly, beyond Shining Armor and Changelings, what does Cadence (as well as SA for that matter) have? She fits the bill of a nice, practiced and proper Princess archetype, but as it stands, that's pretty much it to her. She's like the Anne Hathaway and Twilight and Luna are Jennifer Lawrence nymag.com/thecut/2013/02/why-d…

People prefer fallibility and being able to relate to a person, which many can with Twi and Luna, than the practiced rehearsed perfection of someone like Cadence.

Great story idea, I'd go for it.

I know. Specifically, I brought it up here, in this Drabble, and you did respond to it. comments.deviantart.com/1/3023…

Too bad I don't have time, nor skills, to write the story to the quality this premise deserves. If only...

Could I use some of your griffin empire bio in a story that I'm making?
