Larathin Bradley's A Summer Twilight

This is a golden oldie, originally published way back in April of last year. It's interesting to think about how a species that can live for hundreds or thousands of years must become accustomed to loss - by any useful measure, dragons might as well be immortal.

[Tragedy] • 3,400 words
A grown-up Spike looks back on his life and on those who are no longer with him as the anniversary of a dear friend's death rolls around. Will he be able to deal with his grief and put the past behind him? Or will he need the help of someone even older?

Hit the break for a chat with Larathin, and links to A Summer Twilight all over the ponynet. (It's even been adapted into a comic.) And you can check out the Downloads page for your very own ebook copy!

Horse Voice's The Savage Way

It's an odd combination, this - a background character and a human, trapped alone on a deserted isle. Who'll crack first, the pony or the man?

...the Vault will be taking a day off. It usually takes about a week of lead time to get an interview and ebooks ready for a Vault entry, and my last week was much busier than normal for me, so there just wasn't time. Sorry, everyone!

Regular service will resume next week. (Has anyone else noticed that the next entry will be the Vault's 50th?)

BillyColt's This Nearly Was Mine

The Octavia-Vinyl pairing has been done, as the saying goes, to death. Today's Vault entry is a refreshing take on the subgenre, from the outside looking in.

[Shipping][Tragedy] • 12,700 words
Stoic. Calm. Unflappable. And above all, Professional. These are attributes that the pianist Frederic Horseshoepin likes to pride himself on.

But sometimes it's difficult to stay professional. Frederic finds it difficult to maintain a veneer of stoicism when he has to deal with his own feelings. What can he do when he's in love with a mare that he cannot hope to have?
