The continuities are: Forgiveness: Is a Deconstruction Fic. Where after the CMC's letter plan failed. They must find a way to make amends while the Mane 6 comes to grips with what the fillies have done. Punishment however is a few shades darker. With the CMC ran out of town by an angry mob and a great snowstorm looming on the horizon. But there's more to this blizzard than meets the eye...
