Story updates! Reading time!
I was trying to read the newer Song of Ice and Fire books the other day now that I've finished both seasons of Game of Thrones, but I got bored at around 15% in. I guess I'm sticking with pony fanfiction!
Story: The Eternal Song (Update Part 8!)
Description: Hey, wanna hear a story?The Eternal Song
'Course you do. It's me telling it, after all. When has Vinyl Scratch ever let ya down?
All right. Sit your flank down and listen. This one's gonna be good.
It's the story of a night of hard drinking, an old record shop, and the fate of a world I never knew existed. A story of ancient songs, angry gods, and weird and terrifying creatures. A story of a certain white unicorn and her mostly-willing quest to save the universe, with the help of a snarky piece of sentient jewelry, some sweet magical powers, and a host of strange and interesting characters.
And it's about friends, too. And love, and promises made and broken, and the endless beat of the eternal song that runs through all of us.
... Jeez, that got pretty deep, didn't it? Well, anyway, yeah.
This is that story.
Story: The Age of Wings and Steel (Update Part 61!)
Description: Three hundred years after the fall of Princess Luna, Equestria teeters on the brink of disaster. Bitter political infighting and power-hungry nobles threaten to tear the country apart in a bloody civil war, while in the south old enemies prepare to reclaim their ancient homeland from the ponies.
As Princess Celestia desperately strives to hold together her splintered nation, she sends a young pony on a quest to the northern lands that border Equestria in order to plead for aid against the threat of Grypha. This unlikely messenger is Rye Strudel, the flightless, magic-less half-breed son of a guard and a baker. Rye must do the impossible and unite the thanes of the north... for if he cannot, there may be no home to come back to.The Age of Wings and Steel

(An epic fantasy adventure set in the same narrative universe as The Sun Whispers Your Name. It's not at all required reading; it just expands upon world-building.)
