    The Moment When...

    For those who are fans of Past Sins, from a long time ago or just recently, I have to call your attention once more to the comic being done by SaturnStar14. For over two years now she has dedicated a wondrous amount of time and energy to bring Past Sins into a visual medium. She's made more progress on a comic version of Past Sins than anyone else before, and now, today, she has reached one of the story's key moments. The crux of Chapter 10, and the moment of Celestia's great mistake.

    Can any of you hear a little filly screaming "Mommy?"

    Happy Holidays and Birthday

    Looks like I've made another trip around the sun, surviving another happy year on our little blue marble. I hope everyone has been having an enjoyable holiday seasons with friends, family, and as few headaches and heartaches as possible. I've had an enjoyable year working into the video game industry and writing my stories, and hopefully the coming year can be just as enjoyable and stable. Stability is a blessing in and off itself, and I greatly appreciate having calm waters in my life.

    Now, to extend some special thanks to those in the fandom that I am especially appreciative off.

    El Oso, Gamma Ray, and Hypermark for being my Skype RP, video game, and all round good friends.

    Illustrious Q for being my steadfast first-pass editor/friend, and all the pre-readers that have helped on all my stories, including but not limited to BronyWriter, Applejack-Fan, JustAnotherTimeLord, Kevinltk, Grand_Moff_Pony, Winston, & GMZ_Casper.

    Knighty, Wanderer  D, Obscelesence, and all the other moderators that make Fimfiction such a great place for fanfiction.

    SaturnStar14 for undertaking the monumental task of making Past Sins into an online comic and getting further than anyone ever has.

    To all my writing friends/acquaintances I've meet at conventions and through Skype groups, including but not limited to (and in alphabetic order) Alexstrazsa, Applejinx, Aquaman, Arcainum, Bleeding Raindrops, CloudHammer, CouchCrusader, CyborgSamurai, GaryOak, Golden Vision, KKat, Ninestempest, Norse Pony, Piquo Pie, ROBCakeran, Seeker The Lurker, Sunchaser, Super Trampoline, and totallynotabrony.

    To an old friend who may be coming back to the writing fanfiction after a long break, who will remain unnamed for the moment.

    Finally, to all the followers and people who have enjoyed my stories over the years. You've helped me grow as a writer, and having even one person, let alone thousands, of people enjoy my work is a truly rewarding feeling.

    See you all in the new year, hopefully with more pony stories and who knows, maybe I'll finally get around to some of the original stories I've been toying with.

    P.S. If I didn't mention you and I should have, please forgive me. I have a bit of a birthday head cold.

    Season 5 Finale & a Hardback Book Announcement

    Lots of folks doing this, but I promise I won't be too long winded. I stand amongst those that enjoyed the finally. Yes, perhaps interpretation of the time travel was simplified, but it gave us wonderful glimpses into the consequences of the adventures failed if our favorite ponies never became friends. My only criticism was related to the revelation Starlight's motivation, but I've never been too critical of the show. Everything has its ups and downs, its good moments and bad, and so far My Little Pony is continuing to give us more good moments than bad, in my opinion.

    That and rebel leader Zecora for the win.

    Still, another hiatus is upon us, and we are left to wonder what My Little Pony has in store for the future. As someone that's been around since almost the start, the fervor around the show may have calmed, but I still see something that is entertaining and enjoyable, as long as you don't take it too seriously.

    Finally, I have a bit of Past Sins related news. Back during the original hard back printing, Illustrious Q, one of the members of the Equestria Publications group, purchased 15 copies of Past Sins for himself. His intent was to give them away to friends, family, and specific famous people. Unfortunately, a small financial situation has arisen.

    Now don't worry. It's not anything life threatening, but it has forced him to make a hard decision. He's going to be selling some of the copies of Past Sins he purchased for himself. Now, I normally wouldn't advertise something like this, but Illustrious Q was pivotal to the Past Sins Printing Projects completing. He was the one that took the time to ship out all the books for the first printing. That and I know some people new to the fandom would love the chance to get a hold of a copy.

    These books are from the first printing. That means they include, of course, the story, but it also includes the fan art section and the short story "First Hours."

    I'll try to update this blog post when I'm alerted the books have sold out.

    UPDATE: I've removed the links because all the books sold. I'm sure Illustrious Q appreciates that greatly, and I hope those who were able to snag one of the copies enjoy their purchase.

    An Open Invitation for Halloween Story Editors

    Real life can be interesting, especially when it sneaks up on you. I have been working on my story for Nightmare Night aka Halloween since about a week after I finished The Road Home. Was making good pace, thought I could make it before the holiday this year, even though the story has become multi-chapter in length. But for some reason, my brain decided not to account for the fact that my company's game, Nevermind, was an official nominee to Indiecade this year, which is like the Sundance festival for games. It was a really wonderful event, and I was happy to show off Nevermind with my coworkers to anyone that came by Culver City this past weekend.

    Unfortunately, it took away some of the precious time I was going to work on my story.

    Now, I'm working hard to have as much finished as possible before Halloween, but this crunch has left me without the time I usually take to send out requests and invitations to the pool of people who have pre-read and edited for me in the past. So, realizing I may be opening the floodgates onto myself, I'm going to extend an open public invitation.

    If you have some grammar/editing experience, and have enjoyed my work in the past, I'd like to ask if you'd be interested in helping me prepare my latest story for publishing here on Fimfiction. Right now, the workload is two chapters, equaling ~12k words, that I would like to have edited in the next few days if at all possible. The story itself will likely range in the 5-6 chapter length, in total, with the additional chapters being posted in the days following Halloween. I'm looking for people who feel they can commit to helping with the entire story.

    At the moment, I want to keep the premise a bit of a secret, but I will provide the following details. It is themed around some supernatural elements, in honor of the looming spooky holiday. It is set in the Equestria Girls world and the main character is going to be Sunset Shimmer. The rating is going to be teen, with no outright gore, mature content, or shipping. The title and description of the story will be available to those who show interest, and I'll provide link to my working google docs through PM.

    With all that said, and not knowing exactly what kind of response I'll get, I hereby extend the invitation to all my followers who happened to read this blog post.

    Would anyone be ever so gracious as to lend me his or her aid?

    P.S. I'll post an update to this blog once all the available slots are filled.

    [UPDATE]: The three slots have been filled at this time, but I will refer back to the comment section here if something comes up. Thank you again everyone for volunteering, and I hope you enjoy the story when it becomes publicly available in a few days.

If the world at large discovers its existence, Equestria will become a target.

This forces Celestia and Chrysalis to meet, and agree to a temporary alliance between their kinds. Neither is happy about the situation, but for the lives of the ponies and changelings they lead, they are willing to do what is necessary.

Yet, as weeks and months pass, the pair find working together is not as horrible as they originally believed. Is a lasting peace, and perhaps more, possible between ponies and changelings, between a princess and a queen?

Twilight, after becoming an alicorn, finds her plain unicorn magic has been increased drastically. Yet, she wonders about the other kinds of pony magic? She should have the natural talents of all three clans in equal measure. So, to test this hypothesis and to see how much she's changed, Twilight begins an experiment. She enlists the aid of Applejack and Rainbow Dash to provide the tests, and pulls in an unsuspecting Lyra to be the control group.

Let the experiment begin.

This story is a sequel to Past Sins

Touch, Smell, Taste, Hearing, Sight

This is the order the five senses develop in for foals as they rest, cradled in the warm safety of a mother’s womb. But for one, her womb was a thorn bush in the dark of night. For one, the safety and warmth that should have carried her into the world was replaced with pain and cold.

These are Nyx's first hours.

There is a secret in Equestria. A secret the newly crowned Princess Twilight Sparkle doesn’t dare to believe. Like puppeteers pulling on marionettes, they have influenced Equestria for better and worse since the fall of Discord. So far they have been benevolent, but their potential for evil is vast. What’s worse, she doesn’t know their name. She doesn’t know their mission. All she knows for certain is one thing.

That they all seem to be zebra.
