And here ends the “Lyra Arc.” Thirteen months ago, almost to the day, Bonbon stepped off the train at Canterlot Station, and this arc began in earnest. This has been the longest weekend of my life. An incredible number of events have occurred between the start of this arc and its conclusion tonight, but I am glad that I have been able to continue telling the story of our Canterlot Musicians through it all. And I am thankful to all of you for following and providing your questions and warm sentiments to the comic.
Allow me to share a moment of insight. When I originally began the Canterlot Academy of Music, I had planned for it to be a very ask-centric blog, like many of the others on tumblr. However, the blog evolved into a much more story driven work, one that I am pleased to work with. I am happy to see that people have responded well to this, and continue to send interesting questions and comments. There’s more to say on this matter, but I’ll save that for Saturday.
It has been a long road to reach this point, and there is much yet that I would like to tell. I hope that you will continue to enjoy the Academy. Thank you again for being so kind, so patient, and for being generally wonderful people.
