Giving Love a Helping Hoof Update!
Hey everyone! This is just an update to let you know that Giving Love A Helping Hoof is being DISCONTINUED on this site, BUT it is still being updated! I'm condensing down from all the other sites I've used, packing up shop and moving over to Fim-fiction! I'll still be active on dA, I just won't be posting story updates any more. For the full rundown, head over to my fim-fiction page!
http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Kroqgar
Don't forget to chuck down a watch or a like or whatever it is over there (still not fully used to using it) so you don't miss out on any updates! I'll be uploading all the old chapters there soon, and I've already made a post over there about the status of updates. See you there!

"Fluttershy dear, I swear that it will be fun! Why, AJ, Twilight and I all enjoyed a spirited game last time we had a slumber party!"
"Oh... I don't know..."
"Come on Fluttershy," intoned AJ, idly wondering what Rarity's definition of 'spirited' was, "it'll be fun, ah swear!"
"Well... Maybe..."
"Plus, the book says we have to! We have to tick off everything on the checklist."
"What'd ah say 'bout checklists Twi'?"
"Well... I mean, if you girls insist... I suppose I could maybe play..."
"Yes!" cheered Rainbow Dash, pumping a hoof in the air. "Time for truth or dare!"

PART 2

Chapter 12
The six young mares sat in a loose circle in the loft area of the Ponyville library, eager to start their game.
Rainbow Dash leapt to her hooves before anyone else. "I'll go first! Come on girls, hit me!"
Rarity, a bit more worldly than her friends, decided to start things off slow to prolong the fun. "Alright Rainbow Dash, truth or da

The Princess and The Knight
"And then what happened?"
"Then, the beautiful princess summoned all her magic, and blasted the diamond dogs back to their kingdom!" The older pony fussed about with the little foal's blankets, tucking them in here and there. The filly clutched her little doll tightly in her tiny hooves. "Equestria was safe again, and everypony lived happily ever after. The end."
The small pony yawned. "Was the princess Princess Celestia?"
A cheeky grin. "Maybe."
Cadance and Twilight stifled their giggling, their muted amusement echoing down the stairs and through the empty lower level of the home. The little unicorn's parents were out for the evening, and Cadance had leaped at the opportunity to foalsit for the filly she considered a sister. Her horn briefly glowed

Chapter 11
Rarity and Elusive both slumped against the door of Carousel Boutique, gasping for breath. The pair's headlong flight through Ponyville was a bit more exertion than either or the two unicorns was used to.
"Well... that was... certainly interesting," wheezed Elusive.
"Yes... I suppose... that's one word for it!" Rarity wiped a hoof across her brow, noticing that she was sweaty of all things.
The stallion took a deep breath, feeling his pounding heart beginning to slow. Things hadn't gone exactly to plan; in their haste to escape from the Cutie Mark Crusaders, they had drawn more attention to themselves than even they would have liked. Perhaps the continual high pitched screams hadn't been exactly the best idea, but Celestia knew how terrifying those three fillies could be! As his breathing evened out, he began to take in his surroundings. Ah, the beloved Boutique! The mannequins, the podium, the work area... It was all here! Gra

Chapter 10
With a startled shriek, Fluttershy and Butterscotch leapt into the air, wings freezing up in fright. As their hooves touched earth, the two immediately attempted to bolt off in opposite directions, only for their still entwined wings to bounce them right back. With a simultaneous "Ooph!" the two pegasi collided and flopped to the ground in a jumble of yellow legs.
The Cutie Mark Crusaders immediately crowded around, trying to assist the dazed couple.
"Oh mah gosh, Fluttershy! I didn't mean to scare you! Are ya alright?" Applebloom hovered over the pegasus, fretting.
Carefully disentangling herself from Butterscotch, the pegasus rose to her hooves, none the worse for wear. "Oh, it's fine Applebloom. I was just a little bit frightened."
Applebloom sighed in relief. "Thank goodness. Anyway, have ya seen mah helmet lyin' around anywhere? It's blue with a black strap."
Shaking her head, Fluttershy replied, "I'm sorry Applebloom, I haven't seen it

(Author's Note: Hey guys! Sorry I took so long to update, so as my late Christmas/New Year's present to all of you, have three, count 'em, three chapters!)
Dread filled the assembled ponies as the immediately recognisable sound of tiny orange wings buzzing at a hummingbird-like intensity reached their ears. Fate was certainly forcing their hooves!
Each reacted differently: a startled gasp, a thoughtful grimace, trembling uncontrollably. However the combined reactions of every other pony couldn't hold a flicker of a spark of a candle to that of Rainbow Dash and Rainbow Blitz. As the two pegasi realised that Scootaloo, Scootaloo!, was heading their way, they screamed in unison, hair standing on end. Their wings very nearly locked up!
"AAAAHHHHH!!"
As soon as their lungs emptied and without so much as a word of goodbye, they took to the air to seek refuge amongst the clouds, leaving nothing but a fading rainbow trail.

Chapter 8
Flying through the air, sunlight glinting off their golden finish, six magnificent chariots made their way towards Ponyville. Their pegasus escorts, picked at random from the Canterlot guard rotation, had known that something interesting was happening when they had seen just how many guards were being assembled – twelve guards was a full pegasus division! Upon seeing just who they were escorting, the stoic ponies very nearly widened their eyes in surprise; the Elements of Harmony themselves!
...and the Elements of Harmony... again?
However, one didn't become one of the elite pegasi guard of Canterlot by asking questions. They did as they were ordered, immediately and without complaint. So each guard had strapped himself in, nodded politely to his assigned passengers, and with an affirmative glance to his co-pilot had taken off down the runway.
It was at this point that six of them entered their own private hell.

Chapter 7
The six golden chariots receded into the bright blue sky, winging their way towards an unknown future. The royal sisters watched them go, each thinking their own private thoughts. The two stood there for some time, gazing into the sky, looking out over Canterlot. It was surreal, sometimes, to look out over the young ponies, and try to imagine each of their lives, their worries, their fears. Almost too much to imagine, and Luna didn't like to if she could help it. Eventually, the younger Alicorn started moving from hoof to hoof, looking to Celestia and back into the castle.
Celestia herself simply stood there, perfectly still, her slowly waving mane the only feature betraying her as a living thing and not part of the castle statuary. Less often than she would care to admit did she have time to simply stand, and think, and watch. Of course, she had more time to herself these days, what with Luna taking more and more of her royal duties back aga

Chapter 6
Sunlight streamed in through the great arching windows of Canterlot's banquet hall, catching the dancing motion of countless dust motes frolicking through the air, washing the entire room in a warm golden glow. Such was the gift of Princess Celestia.
A small group of ponies a dozen strong sat inside, quietly talking amongst themselves. Were one to walk into the hall at that point nopony could fault them for rubbing their eyes in disbelief, thinking they were seeing double. They very nearly were. Seated in a circle were six young mares, and directly next to each were six young stallions, all looking so alike as to be uncanny.
Most conspicuous however, was the pair of pink ponies, seemingly incapable of standing still. The two were bouncing on the spot, yammering at each other at a speed nigh indecipherable, wound by some perpetual internal spring. This very pair had nearly caused the remaining ponies to have a group heart attack not a few minu

A short while later found the group split in two; colts on one side and fillies the other. Rarity being as AJ often said "far and away the most frou-frou filly Ah've ever met", the seamstress very much wished for a moment of privacy to see what her friends thought of the whole situation. After some brief introductions and many utterances of "So that's what my dear friend would look like as the opposite gender! I must say, they make quite the dashing filly/colt!", she spirited her friends away. However Twilight and AJ could read her like a book. They shared a smirk.
The duo quickly brought Rarity up to speed on what exactly they'd each discovered, the unicorn nodding in agreement to their deductions.  Though, all too swiftly, she cut the two of them short.
"Twilight, while I am as concerned about what effect this will have on the Elements as anypony, I think we've covered it quite enough. We don't wish to beat a dead... Well,

Chapter 4
In a small, seldom-used antechamber off the banquet hall of the great capitol of Canterlot, two seriously freaking out ponies stared dumbly at each other. Two minds, normally so able, were completely incapable of stringing together a coherent thought.
With a sharp twang, a single hair in the mane of each flew askance. As one, the two started rambling, not so much talking to each other as they were voicing their thoughts.
"This makes absolutely no sense!"
"How can this even be possible?"
"You can't be real!"
"Is this all a dream? Did I have too much of Granny Smith's 'special' cider?"
"Maybe I fell off the chariot on the way to Canterlot and I'm in a coma!"
"What if we all never even had a sleepover?"
"What if I never even went to Ponyville!"
"What if Ponyville isn't even real!"
"What if I'M not even real!"
"What if-"
"What if-"
Finally, in what two eavesdropping Alicorns would call really, really creepy, they both shouted in perfect un

My Faithful Student Twilight Sparkle,
I need you and your fellow Elements of Harmony to come to Canterlot as soon as possible. A situation has arisen that affects each of you more profoundly than I can currently foresee. I shall send a chariot for you and your friends, it should arrive within the hour.
With love,
Princess Celestia


Pulled by a pair of armoured pegasus, a golden chariot flew across the idyllic countryside of Equestria, the roaring winds kept at bay through enchantment. A group of fillies clustered around a purple unicorn upon it.
"Whatever do you think it could be, Twilight?" asked Rarity, looking askance at the scroll between the purple unicorn's hooves.
Twilight Sparkle had been almost silent since they had left Ponyville, lost in her own thoughts. Rarity waved a hoof in front of her friend's face.
"Ugh, she's doing it again. Rainbow, darling?"
Taking in a deep breath, the pegasus screamed, "TWI-LIIIGHT!" a vein

A harried white unicorn knocked a dainty hoof on the door to Ponyville's library, her saddlebags bulging.
"Coming!"
The door opened before her, bathing her in a warm glow. Her hostess stood before her.
"Rarity! I'm so glad you made it, we were beginning to wonder whether you were coming."
Rarity tittered, brushing her mane out of her eyes. "Oh, think nothing of it Twilight, it simply took more time than I would have liked to close down the boutique today. Not that I'm complaining of course, business is positively booming!" Though the Grand Galloping Gala hadn't quite proceeded exactly as planned, the image of six unknown mares arriving in tasteful gowns of an unfamiliar but intriguing design had certainly stuck with some of the more fashion conscious of the higher echelons of society.

Chapter 1
Silence reigned over the Everfree Forest. Ponyville's forbidding neighbour usually held a raucous evening court, the bass rumbles of the manticores punctuated by the high pitched squeaking of the local parasprite clouds. Tonight, however, was quite different.
Tonight, the cockatrice slept easy, its head tucked under a wing. Tonight, the Ursa Minor slumbered peacefully despite the colossal snoring of its mother. Tonight, even the normally unshakeable Zecora unbolted her door and raised her gaze to the stars, dreaming of another time and place.
Tonight was peaceful.
Deep within the silken canopy of the undergrowth one could find a ruined castle, nestled against a cliff-side, all but worn away by the constant ebb and flow of the wind and the wilds. Known as the resting place of the fabled Elements of Harmony, this castle was the ancient home of the Solar Sisters, the rulers of the realm themselves.
Tonight, that castle would bear witness to some

I'm not entirely sure what to tell deviantART about myself, but I'm going to give it a go. Hopefully I'll say enough to keep you interested, deviantART, but not make you back away scared.

Considering I'm drawing a mental blank on almost any other way to introduce myself, I'll simply go Naruto style and tell you my hobbies, likes, dislikes and dream.

I like to write, though it seems to be something of a love hate relationship. I fill up on its intoxicating bounty, before pulling away, full to bursting with literary goodness. Then I can't seem to stomach writing for a while again... And other times its all I can do to stop and go to the bathroom because my fingers won't stop moving over the keyboard as I snooze in my chair. I like to exercise, healthy body healthy mind and all that. I play video games far too often, much like almost every other male on the planet.

I like determination. I like someone who makes a promise and stands by it. I like Dragonball waaaaay too much.

I dislike lies and liars. People who don't stand by their word irk me terribly. I dislike early mornings, no matter how swiftly they are becoming an integral part of my life.

My dream... is something only the blessed anonymity of the Internet would cause me to divulge. I dream of meeting my better half (as I imagine most of us do) and, metaphorically, riding off into the sunset.

Favourite genre of music: A little bit of everything
Favourite cartoon character: Goku
Interests
It took LunaMoonlight100 on FF.Net putting a boot up my ass to say it, but yes, I WILL be continuing Helping Hoof. Fact of the matter is I can't at the moment; I've lost my job and... Well, if that's happened to you then you know that's stress enough, but suffice it to say it's not the only thing hanging over me right now. My life has been in pretty amazing amounts of flux this year, so hopefully I can find steady employment soon, and settle down so I can do the things I enjoy.

So, I AM continuing the story; I just can't right now.
