    Halloween Story - Editing Request

    Between work, Civ 6, and many other things and distractions, the multi-part story I intended for Halloween isn't quite ready to begin posting. You'll still be getting that story, but it may be a bit of spooky fun that shows up in December. Still, for Halloween on Monday, I do have a one-shot story I've prepared to keep up my tradition of having a story for Halloween (my personal favorite holiday of the year.)

    But because of the many distractions, the one-shot story needs some quick turnaround technical editing if it's going be ready to post by late tomorrow or earlyMonday. So, I'm sending out this request/invitation for some tight mechanical editing to all who follow me here on Fimfiction. If you feel you can lend me a hand with this quick story project, please drop a comment on this blog and I'll reach out to the morning to early afternoon of Sunday, Oct 30th.

    Those who have worked with me before are more than welcome, but I'm also more than willing to work with new people. The story in question is 4k words. Fairly short, compared to most of my other stories, and fairly tame compared to some of my other Halloween stories like Into The Depths and From The Depths. I don't want to give up more than that so as to not to spoilt the story before it's released.

    And beyond that, I hope everyone has been and will continue to enjoy a lovely weekend.

    P.S.: I will update this post once the technical editors have been selected, and those technical editors will receive a link to the story's google doc directly from me.

    UPDATE 12:04 PST 10/30/2016:

    Some of the interested commentors have been contacted. Editing slots will be filled based on them getting back to me.

    UPDATE 2:00 PST 10/30/2016:

    Those who were contacted have begun the editing process, filling all the needed slots. Thank you, everyone, for volunteering and hopefully you enjoy the story when it releases within the next few hours.

    Glimpses - Update Complete - Happy Past Sins 5th Anniversary

    For those of you waiting to read Glimpses it has been marked as complete, then today is your lucky day. Glimpses has been updated complete.

    Also, this officially marks Past Sins 5th Anniversary of Completion. It was on this day, 5 years ago, when the last chapters of Past Sins were posted to Equestria Daily. Like I said in the long author letter in the first chapter of Glimpses, it has been a wonderful 5 years of writing, friendship, and pastel ponies, and I can't thank the community, especially my readers, for making these past years enjoyable.

    Thank you so much!

    Bronycon 2016

    With the convention looming just a week away, I hope those who are planning to attend are as excited or more excited I am. It's always a great time seeing fellow authors, internet friends, and otherwise communing with the community we've built around our favorite pastel ponies.

    For this year, I'll be on two panels and will be generally be hanging out around the convention. So if you spot me, don't be afraid to say hi. I promise, I'm not scary.

    As to the two panels I'm participating on, here are the details:


    -Worlds Beyond: Crossovers in Fanfiction

    7/8/2016 2:00 pm, Hall of the Planets

    "Make your _MLP:FiM_ crossover ideas manifest. Explore theory and discuss technique with masters of the craft."

    Panelists: Pen Stroke, Somber, Wanderer D, Arad, GaPJaxie


    -Head to Headcanon

    7/9/2016 12:30 am, Hall of Chaos

    Prepare your headcanons, because it's time to debate the tough questions facing our fandom today. During this comedic panel, panelists will provide answers and the audience will judge who deserves ultimate victory.

    Panelists: Pen Stroke, Wanderer D, El Oso, Illustrious Q


    I have particularly high hopes to see people at the Head to Headcanon panel, despite its late hour. It's my first time hosting a non-writing panel at Bronycon, and I think we've got a good mix of people to make it a fun and entertaining way to spend your witching hour.

    Beyond that, I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

    P.S. For those wondering when I might be publishing something new, I do have a story in the works that I will likely start publishing fairly soon after Bronycon to help celebrating a particular anniversary that some of you have already been asking me about.

There is a bit of truth to every legend, though the ravages of time can bury it deeply. Myths and lore become twisted, melded, and torn the longer they are around. One of Equestria’s oldest legends is that of Nightmare Moon. It is the core of Nightmare Night and the excuse for children to go out asking for candy with a single, common rhyme.

Nightmare Night, what a fright. Give me something sweet to bite.

This story is a sequel to Past Sins

When pursuing Starlight, Twilight and Spike experienced variances of Equestria, and saw how the river of time could have been different. Now, Starlight has moved in with Twilight, Nyx, and Spike and has begun her studies in friendship. To thank those who have helped her embrace friendship once more, Starlight has created an enchantment that allows the castle’s map table to let anyone glimpse other variances of reality.

The power to ask “what if,” can be a source of great amusement… but for some, the hypotheticals are haunting reminders of what could have been.

You'll find a rampaging army of Rainbow Dash's, a chaos dealing Fancy Pants, cute coughs resulting in cuddling, and more, all in the same place. It's no mad house, it's Mad Libs.

A collection of short, ~1,000 word self-contained snippets that are generated from submissions to the mad-lib event(s) I've held here on FimFiction. There is going to be little rhyme and reason between the individual snippets, but hopefully there is a little something for everyone to enjoy. Snippets will never be worse than a teen rating. Each snippet will also have one or more tags to help readers find ones they're interested in.

So far, this collection contains the results from one mad-lib event(s).

On the day of the Friendship Games, the veil between two worlds is pierced. The magic of Equestria seeps through the barrier to permeate the world of humanity. Entities begin to come into existence. Lore and legend are gaining flesh, bone, and blood, yielding things both wondrous and horrible. Magic is powerful, but a limited resource. If the world at large discovers its existence, Equestria will become a target.

Thus, seven friends agree to keep the secret, but some things will not be hidden away.

Through unknown means, Sombra amassed an army and launched an attack against the Crystal Empire and a changeling sub-hive. 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.
