(read this first!)
(sorry if this shows up on your dashboard again, just bumping it back up to the top)
Welcome to Moonstuck! Moonstuck was a reader-driven adventure story based on characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, although it takes place in an alternate universe from canon (and is set in Luna’s childhood, not during her banishment). It’s suitable for most ages, aside from some minor swearing in the early pages.
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 - read it on the tumblr page (newer posts shown first)
2 - read it chronologically on the tumblr page (by clicking either here or on the ‘read chronologically’ button on the sidebar) — I recommend this method as it’s much less confusing than reading it backwards!
Please keep in mind that Moonstuck’s odd format means that it reads choppily in places — I’ve been told it’s fine as long as you keep that in mind, so just remember that 99% of it was made up on the fly based on reader commands and so the pacing is pretty hit-and-miss.
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 out where I wanted to go with it. 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 (not commands) through disqus! 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, an ongoing timeskip comic about the Cake family - although please keep in mind that it doesn’t take place in the same universe and has nothing to do with Moonstuck.
Thanks for reading!
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:

Quick note: there is now an option to read Moonstuck chronologically (older posts are shown at the top, and page 1 has the first posts instead of the newest). The navigation buttons should work properly now (thanks RedEnchilada!).
This is the reason why all posts also now have the ‘archive’ tag. If you see any posts that do not have that tag, please let me know! I think I got them all, but the mass post editor is kind of weird.
There’s a new button for it on the sidebar, or you can click this link. There’s also a shortened link you can use if you ever need one: http://mlpf.im/1EV
