So! I managed to finish in time to submit it to the WTG. The story itself, which clocks in at just over 6700 words, can be found here (my first time submitting anything to FIMFiction, and only the second time I’ve put a story of mine out for truly public consumption. Exciting!) I had a lot of fun writing this. Also, major thanks to The Lotus Tea Dragon for the pre-reading and extremely helpful suggestions! Hopefully, I can keep this creative momentum going for a bit and make some decent progress with my other ponyfic ideas as well as my original stuff.
