    Remind me not to stack two events on top of eachother anymore.  This update post is a bit more bloated than I would have liked it to be, but between email answering and pumpkin/banner compiling, I'm way behind.

    Story: Equestria War Z: An Oral History of Zombie Pony War (Update Part 3!)

    5 Star

    [Grimdark-War] [Crossover]

    Author: CoffeeGrunt
    Description: Theatrics call it the Howling Hunger. The religious, the Rapture. The politicians and bureaucrats of the United Equestrian Democracy simply call it "Equestria War Z." My name is Quill Stroke, and I write these stories with the permission of the ponies that tell them. Without the pony element of this long and horrific war, I believe history will simply call it another natural disaster, allowing the tragedies and massacres that occurred to reoccur.

    Story: Apple Branches (Update Story 6) 

    4 Star

    [M/M Shipping] This post is a compilation of a trio of Big Mac/Caramel stories which were very nearly lost to the Void before being saved by a super diligent pre-reader who has more than earned his quarterly bonus muffin. He has requested that we post them on the grounds that they are, and I quote, "short, sweet and d'aww".

    The author is unfortunately unknown to me, so if anypony happens to know, leave a comment so we can get everything properly labeled. All three stories can be found after this convenient page break. Page breaks: saving space since whenever they were invented. Enjoy a refreshing Page Break Cola today!

    [Grimdark][Crossover][Adventure][Kkat Approved] Usually I toss all the Fallout: Equestria side fics into one big post, but this one has reached such a critical mass in terms of content that is has broken free from the mothership! Kkat also approved of it's separation.  At 50k+ words, I'm pretty sure it warrants it. Also rolling with Calamity until someone draws something for it!

    Plus Somber already has a bunch of other 5/6 star stuff on the blog, so we know he can pull it he totally pulled it off!
