    A Request for Compliments

    Hello, dear reader. I would like to receive some praise for my writing. The more verbose, complimentary, and sincere, the better. Thank you very much in advance.

    Why? Because I like praise. I'd like a page I can easily go to find a nice compilation of praise, and this is going to be it.

    If you have constructive criticism or a balanced comment, please share, but do it in the comments section of the relevant story or post some kind of review blog page if you like. Don't worry about sending me a link. I self-google so often that I'm bound to find it. The same goes if you think I suck. I want to keep this post's commentary for praise. I will delete comments in this page that isn't praise or is some kind of mixture. It won't be because I'm a tyrant or an egomaniac who won't hear anything bad said about me, it will be because you don't know how to read.

    No, I'm not going to bait you into praising me by telling you how my life sucks or how bad my day went. Life in general is going well for me, and my day went just fine.

    No, I'm not about to quit writing or leave the fandom. I'm actually looking forward to Season 5 and I still have plenty of ideas.

    No, I'm not holding the next chapter of Upheaval: Legacy hostage. It's almost ready, and it will come out when it is. I'm just having some difficulty getting enough time to write it out. It will be out soon.

    No, you're not kissing my ass, sucking my dick, hugging my nuts, white-knighting, being a fanboy, being a mindless sheep, or whatever derogatory term the internet uses on anyone who has the nerve to like something.

    No, this won't go to my head. I value criticism highly, and I'm always striving for improvement. I read and re-read the comments in my stories' comment section too. I just want a nice little page that's purely praise. Sometimes, I do feel a little discouraged about writing and need a little perking up. Sifting through the many and mixed contents of the story comments gets a bit tiring.

    Again, thank you sincerely if you leave some praise. Even if you don't, thank you for being a reader.

    Let's Look at Letters to the Griffon Emperor, Warmongering, and Foreign Complications

    A Letter to the Griffon Emperor on the Matter of War

    Warmongering

    Foreign Complications

    So it looks like we may have found our next fad: Equestria dealing with belligerent nations through something that might pass for diplomacy. Now, in terms of quality for these three fics, I would say that "A Letter" is boring pony wank with a game of headcanon soggy biscuit in the comments section. "Warmongering" starts off pretty decent as it at least allows the opposing side to speak, even if the opposing side is laughably disadvantaged. However, the story fizzes out at the end as its one gag runs itself out and there's an unnecessary second chapter. "Foreign Complications" is decent as it tries to balance things out. How it fares in the balancing act is up to you, but I give it credit for trying instead of just going EQUESTRIA FUCK YEAH.

    After reading these three, I've come to the conclusion that this topic simply cannot be done as a one shot. Not even Foreign Complications does it enough justice. It simply requires too much set up for a simple one shot. You need to embed Equestria into a believable world of multiple nations and properly define its relationships with each before playing around with diplomatic ties. If you don't give this enough time and attention then you're going to attract comments where people stick their headcanons into the gaps of information and start wanking. To keep comments about the story, it's important that you lay down enough material to guide discussions, otherwise people will make up their own rules.

    So, please, if you're looking to hop on board this bandwagon because you can't rein your creativity in any longer, try to do two things.

    1. Don't turn it into a lopsided EQUESTRIA FUCK YEAH scenario. Try to throw some actual tension and struggle in there. Without those things, any victory is bland and meaningless.

    2. Don't do it as a one-shot. This is a scenario that needs some extra care and attention.

    The Next One Shot

    I'm going to write another one shot involving the Upheaval world. This time, I'd like to hear what some of you would like to see me expand on.

    Some conditions:

    1. It's a one shot. Don't ask me to do something heavy like the fall of Lexarius, which needs, at least, a short series.

    2. If it's something I'm planning on expanding on in the main series, I can't pick that one.

    Stop writing this shit.

    How an Actual Human Vs Pony War would go

    This isn't a story. It's a biscuit thrown at FIMfiction's floor so all the military and humans-are-awesome fanboys can run in and play another round of soggy biscuit.

    Give me the worst written LoHAV story any time any day. Or a bad alicorn OC "parody", or another IKEA erotic clop fic. At least they're stories. Fucking hell. What a way to start the morning.

Following the events of Breaking Point, Twilight Sparkle and her friends discover that Equestria's demise may not come from an enemy invasion, but from within. The Barrier Lands and the Heartland begin the slow and uneasy process of reuniting into a single Equestria, but this long-delayed joining is already in danger at its conception.

With Celestia's power in her grasp and her agents by her side, the wheels of Black Rose's plans for Equestria's future continue to turn. However, her brazen gamble has done more than just bring down a centuries-old barrier. Ancient powers begin to stir: the remnants of a dark period in Equestria's history, the immortal inhabitants of Celestia's homeworld, and a rising tide of darkness coming ever closer.
