Thank you so much, this is absolutely lovely.
I’m so very sorry for not posting as frequently as I’d have liked. Things have been very busy for me last year.
However it is one of my 2013 New Year resolutions to continue this blog to the best of my ability. Please forgive me for being absent for so long…
*rushes off to reply to messages in inbox*
OOC// Mod post: Moving into a new home, the holidays, visiting family in other states…I could go on with all of the somewhat big things that have been happening in 2012! It was such a busy year for me. But now things have settled down quite a bit, and I can take up this blog again. Sorry for the absence! I’ll have you know that all the while, I’ve been improving in my art, so I hope you enjoy what is to come!
The inbox is exploding with messages, so I might have to go through and clear out most, if not all, of it. Regardless of that, I’m ready for more questions and/or suggestions so send them in anytime!
Miss Fizzy and I visited Princess Celestia after the events with Chrysalis. Seems like she’s all done getting some well-deserved rest! Which is great, since Her Majesty says she disliked being in bed all the time. She wants to look after the castle and her subjects, not lay in bed uselessly!
Miss Fizzy brought some lovely pink roses, and we all had a wonderful time. I love seeing the Princess smile!
Just finished a special delivery to Eternity over at http://eternityeclipse.tumblr.com/,
Now to get back to Ponyville…
Oh! Thank you so much, Sir! And you don’t have to go all the way back to Ponyville on hoof, I could arrange for a carriage.. (to be continued)
There really was a lot going on!
Her Majesty Princess Celestia permitted me to rest up a bit and said I could skip chores if I was too tired, but, I just couldn’t! Not now, while she is still recovering from her encounter with Queen Chrysalis…I should be working even harder to make sure the castle is squeaky clean when she is fully recovered.
I am a bit sleepy though… Perhaps I should rest just a little teeny bit, and then continue….to… work…. zzz…
My part of an art trade with Eevie-chu at dA of her oc pony, Eternity
I really love this! Thank you again! I will be working on my part very soon. ♥
I’m so sorry for the lack of updates recently… Things have just… “gotten out of hoof” at the castle as of late.
Hopefully now that things have settled down a bit in the Canterlot castle, I can be more active here. I’m so sorry everypony, I hope I didn’t worry you!
I’ll be sure to let you in on all that’s happened since my absence, though I’m sure most of you know. Word spreads so quickly in Equestria, after all! For now, the story of how I got my career as a castle maid will be put on the backburner. A lot happened over the past few weeks, and I’d love to share these new adventures with you.
Ps. Her Majesty Celestia is doing just fine, she is under my daytime care and Luna is keeping an eye on her through the nights. She looks like she’ll be making a full recovery, so don’t worry! I’ll be visiting her room again soon, so I’ll be sure to let you see how she’s doing. ♥
Pss. If there’s anyone that would like to be a guest at the castle and keep Her Majesty company as she recovers, just send me a message! [AKA Cameo time!]
She looked over my application thoroughly, and I couldn’t look away from her face, wondering if I’d be accepted or not. The Sun Princess certainly had a great poker face- I absolutely could not tell what she was thinking.
She looked at me carefully.
"Well now. Eternity, is it? I have reviewed your application." Her face seemed serious, but I thought I hinted the beginnings of a smile.
"W-was it all right?" I squeaked.
"I must say that you are quite the talented little pony, Eternity." Her smile formed. A smile also forming on my face, I thanked her for her kind words. But then her smile turned doubtful as she continued, "Some of it was even a bit hard to believe…!"
My smile faded. Did I overdo it? I was completely honest in my resume, but of course there was the possibility that I seemed like I was bragging…Did I sound like I was bragging? I talked quickly, hoping this wouldn’t make me lose my chance, but I was silenced when she shook her head and smiled again.
And with that, everything else that day was pretty much a blur. I signed the necessary paperwork with a stomach full of butterflies and was ushered by a guard to my dormitory in the East Wing of the castle. I remained quiet as the guard introduced me to my new living quarters and showed me where to report to once I was rested. He soon left, and I collapsed on my very comfortable new bed and fell fast asleep.
And…That’s how it all began! It’s hard to believe that was only over a year ago, I feel so acquainted with the castle and the Princesses, as well as my work.
I remember when I first spoke to the Princess. I was astounded by her grace, she was the absolute pinnacle of everything I had loved about Equestria’s citizens.
Bright, friendly, kind… instantly I knew, that I wanted to know her, I wondered what kind of pony she was.
Even I, a simple peasant compared to her royal stature and blood…. was treated with dignity and respect in her presence. I didn’t feel like a mere unicorn when I was standing in front of her throne, I felt like a princess, too. I felt like I belonged here.
Her horn glistened for a split second, and I saw her magic open a small scroll with my name on it. Suddenly I remembered why I was here.
I shuddered. Here was the moment of truth..
