(read this first!)
(sorry if this shows up on your dashboard again, just bumping it back up to the top)
Welcome to Moonstuck! The story officially completed on November 4th, 2012, and no more commands will be accepted — though it remains up for reading. You have a few options on how to read it:
1 - download the zip (links can be found here, but the first few are missing the text)
2 - read it on the tumblr page (keep in mind that the default tumblr layout shows newer posts above older ones)
3 - read it chronologically on the tumblr page (by clicking either here or on the ‘read chronologically’ button on the sidebar) — I reccomend this method, because you’ll be able to see it in order with the tags and CSS tricks, as well as being able to use the comments.
Please keep in mind that Moonstuck’s odd format means that it reads a bit choppily in places — I’ve been told it’s fine as long as you keep that in mind, just don’t expect it to read like a regular comic! If I had to split it up into chapters, I would probably go like this:
- 1-13 - Prologue
- 14-69 - Observatory I
(The above were back when Moonstuck first began, when I was still figuring it out. From here on out it becomes much more focused.)
- 70-201 - Lunar Maria
- 202-280 - Bat Ponies I
- 281-344 - Maze I
- 345-411 - Bat Ponies II
- 412-434 - Maze II
- 435-479 - Observatory II
- 480-536 - Changelings I
- 537-595 - Rocs I
- 596-639 - Changelings II
- 640-666 - Rocs II
- 667-704 - Lunar Waterways
- 705-751 - The Smooze
- 752-781 - Tower of Jam
- 782-840 - Final Boss I
- 841-873 - Final Boss II
- 874-889 - Final Boss III
- 890-904 - The End
- 905-908 - Epilogue
Even though Moonstuck is over, feel free to leave comments (eta: not commands), including on the Q&A post! Please keep comments in good taste and to a G/PG level; I do still keep track.
For more Moonstuck, here are the relevant tags for my tumblr and deviantArt. For my current pony project, you can check out Slice of Life, a mostly-comics/semi-askblog about the Cakes.
Thanks for reading!
Quick update — some of the image files weren’t working (I saved them improperly, go me) and a few people were confused by the metadata, so I’ve re-uploaded all the zips. Everything SHOULD be working now! If you’ve reblogged the compilation post, PLEASE make sure it wasn’t the full thing (it should be a shortened version of the post with a link to the rest), because your post will have incorrect or broken links. Thanks!
Also, the amazing and wonderful RedEnchilada has fixed the issue with the navigation buttons in chronological mode, so it should work intuitively now (‘next’ goes forward, ‘first’ and ‘new’ stay chronological, and so on).
As long as I’m on the subject, let’s all give a big hand to him — he coded the Moonstuck layout (several iterations of it, even), helped me with the floating-images CSS, and was all-round an awesome dude. :D Thanks, RedEnchilada!
So, that’s that! Moonstuck is over. It’s been a great ride, almost a year to the day. :D
To answer a few questions I’ve already gotten on the subject: I may continue to draw Moonstuck-related stuff (I’ve drawn these characters for 900+ panels now, old habits die hard!), but there will be no more Moonstuck proper. There will not be a sequel, continuation, Celestia or adult-Luna version, or anything else along those lines, nor will I be “handing the reins” over to someone else. I have no plans to do any spin-offs or another command-based blog, and Average Woona will not be continued. There will not ever be a print version, for sale or otherwise. I have nothing to do with the dubs and I can’t tell you anything about them.
For extra Moonstuck, here are the relevant tags on my tumblr and deviantArt. For my current pony project, you can check out Slice of Life, a mostly-comics/semi-askblog about the Cakes. c:
A zip of the entire story will be available soon, along with a general info post for new readers and (possibly) a Q&A post. Right now I need to get some sleep though!
Thanks for the ride everyone, it’s been awesome. ♡
One more time, just because I accidentally obscured the last post with Woona’s butt:
Just a reminder to everyone: if you figure out something that’s going to happen, please keep it a secret for now! We don’t have that much more to go; please don’t spoil it for those who are still figuring it out.
I will turn off comments if people start posting spoilers. Don’t be the person who ruins it for everyone else!
This isn’t directed at anyone in particular — you guys have been really good so far! It’s just that we’re getting into an area where things are going to starting happening REALLY fast, so this is a preemptive warning. c:
