A relatively simple page to get me back in the game. I'm on a new computer and it doesn't like my tablet, so much of this was drawn with my mouse.

This is a nice story :)
Just to let you know: even in 2016, I would be happy to read the rest of this, if you find time to finish it ;)
If not, thanks for what you have done so far!

Happy New Year!

I'm not trying to pressure you in any way, but I did want to say that I am very much looking forward to any new pages in this tale that you publish in 2014 (and beyond) :D

Thank you! I've been debating with myself over whether or not I still want to continue this story, and I think I might need a little more time.

After your guesting on Friendship Is Dragons, I came hither.  I just read all of this comic.  It is interesting.  It unifies what we learned in 02:01 “The Return of Harmony Part # Ⅰ” with 02:11 “Hearth’s Warming Eve”.  Let me guess:

When the little ponies founded Equestria, they, unknowingly, were near the Land of Anarchy.  The Anarchians discovered this new land only a few hundred kilometers beyond their borders and decided to conquer it.  After the dust settled, discord became stone, Anarchia became part of Equestria.  We know that Discord ruled Equestria, so Equestria will fall.  We shall see how the Princesses discovered the Elements of Harmony and overthrew Discord.

Discord rules Anarchia, but a place called Anarchia should not have a ruler.

Surprise appears to be an ancestor of Pinkamena Diane Pie.  Clover the Clever seems to be an ancestor of Twilight Sparkle.  I suppose that Posy will showup and be an ancestor of FlutterShy, Sparkle will popup and be an ancestor of Rarity, AppleJack will be an ancestor of AppleJack, and FireFly will appear and be an ancestor of RainBow Dash.

You've got the right idea, but there are bits and pieces missing.

And I feel that explicit ancestry would be too... cliche, I suppose.  Without spoilers, I see opportunity to address ideas of reincarnation, narrative archetypes, and the limits of an organized universe.

This sounds interesting.  I cannot wait to see how it plays out.

I have a pretty good idea of what it feels like and just how inspiring the comments can be :) It's great to have people compliment your work.

Now, on the actual work itself... Great job! I am rather fond of your symbolism representing the three cornerstones to their philosophy. I'm looking forward to more. I just wish I had more knowledge of the visual arts so I could offer insightful critiques and the like. In any case, thanks for creating this, I'll patiently await the next page.

Yes! Update! :D

I like this background bit. I wonder if Unicorns still have a connection to snow and ice in this setting.

The way I see it, the four types of ponies have a relationship with the four classical elements.  Earth ponies and Pegasi are Earth and Air of course, but it's not immediately obvious what connects Unicorns to Water.  I imagine magic as a way of shaping the world the way similar to how water transitions between gas, liquid, and solid.  This makes Alicorns the Fire, and it's not hard to see why.  If you will, imagine that Celestia is fire and Luna is the smoke.

Hahaha! The page was so serious and dignified, and then you had to make that one pony trip! Awesome.

But of course!  I strive for a certain degree of seriousness, but without a touch of comic relief it would merely be pompus.

Out of wondering, did you use the braile language in the tablets here? But glad to see you are back!

Thanks, it's good to be back.  And I didn't use Braile, but that's not a bad idea.

It sorta looked like you had in that you would feel the indent, a bump, and smooth part as silence, so its a kind of universal language when you have old scribes, and paper not too available in places, stone is everywhere!

Like I said, not a bad idea.  But the lines are supposed to be lines of text, which could themselves be composed of braile-esque characters.
