Little update, little rant · 3:29am
WITH LUCK, I should have chapter 7 of "Kindness's Gift" up within the next couple days. I'm having some struggles with the conclusion, but the final chapter of the fic will be chapter 8, and hopefully crest over 10K words. The unfinished chapter 7 is already 1300 words, so...
As for my next fic, well, it's been awhile since I posted the prologue chapter for "Fillyments of Harmony," and yes, that is my next project. I'm actually going to do something a little different with this one though. I have another fic in my fic ideas list that yes, I've mentioned in another blog post here, and my brain wants to tie it directly into Fillyments. Come to think of it, the idea came from a certain line in one of my published fics...I'll let ya'll figure it out from those hints. It will make more sense when I get around to it. But as of now, "Fillyments" and the unnamed project are going to have chapters posted alternatively. So I should post the first chapter of the other project before the next chapter of Fillyments. Sorry, everypony! I'm weird like that and I know some people have been wanting to see the next part.
As a side note, I totally just looked at the view counts for my fics. Can't tell if comedy is my forte and no one really wants to do the drama stuff (As both "Generosity's Trust" and "Rainbow Dash Writes a Fanfic" are some of my highest viewed, and my only comedy fics.), or if pictures make stuff more attractive (As "Magic's Dawn, and "Rainbow Dash Writes a Fanfic" are also in my highest viewed, but the former of those is referenced in every story I've written since, barring the latter.). The only fic that fits NEITHER of those conventions that has a high viewcount is "The Party's Loyalty."
Ah well. My next goal is to get some artwork up for my fics. Preferably less "I found it on the internet" and more "I requested something specific for this." Because, as you will see in my rant, .
And a rant for anyone that might care, that's totally unrelated to any of my fics but I really do enjoy having places to vent.
Facebook banned my primary account.
My guess is that I pissed someone off and they decided to do a reporting spree on me. The reasonings that I was given by a Facebook operator are nonsensical if you've ever seen my posts, and even more hilarious considering some of the stuff I HAVE seen others post.
1. Using a fake name. Okay, they got me on that one. But they had forced me to send in a photo ID, and force changed my name to my legal name. I would've been fine if they just changed it to my nickname, but nooooooooooooooo. They had to use my legal name! Apparently you're only allowed to use your real name on Facebook. Regardless of the fact that NO ONE would know you by that name. Anyways, at the time of banning, my legal name was on the account. As far as I'm concerned, this should have been a non-issue but I'll just assume it's a "three strikes" rule since they gave me two more reasons.
2. Sexual harassment. This one is laughable. I preface FLIRTING with "If I go too far, tell me to back off." Seriously. I can't hurt a lady in any way, shape, or form. Call it chivalrous if you want, but I prefer to call it "being a man." So want to hurt the idiots that do hurt women...but that's another rant for another day.
3. Discrimination. The closest thing I do to discrimination is call people idiots. And never to their face. I am super passive-aggressive, and will totally take advantage of some passive-aggressive form of GIFT if I'm irritated. I absolutely do not use any derogatory terms. Several of them are actually what I call "trigger words," words that set me off. And I'm a white male. Take that as you will. Anyways, considering some of the stuff I've seen people post, I think "idiot" is the least of anyone's concerns.
So now, I've declared war. This is probably a pointless war. But I'm quite the force to be reckoned with when I'm angry.
And insane. Let's just say at one point, my grand scheme involved me, again a white male with a REALLY lispy voice that would be considered (As ironic as this sounds considering my third note there.) stereotypical gay, singing "This Day Aria." Both parts.
Have I mentioned I'm crazy yet?
