In the next chapter of If You Hear Me, Let Me Know, Scootaloo is going to go to jail. Just saying.
Am I supposed to say Spoiler Alert before I say that? I think I am...
I'm not really sure what it means, but it granted me something to...mhmm...tag along with. Yes, I am aware of how HORRIBLE of a pun that was, and no there wasn't a chance I was going to resist using it. Anyway, let's get to the question answering portion of this tag. After I put off the long delayed Ask Corny segment of my blog posts! With the way I've been doing updates, I will be willing to answer more than one question per person, depending on the length of time between updates. I love answering your questions, and I hate being a stickler. This is supposed to be fun and I refuse to make it any less fun with strict rules (because that would just suck)
Anyway, Dash Is Best Pony asks: If you could have a sundae with anything on it, with any amount of ingredients, how would you make yours?
I would put on ALL THE INGREDIENTS! Yes, ALL THE FOOD ITEMS IN THE WORLD PILED ON TOP OF ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!

It appears I did a while back when you asked the question
Oh, I see, using parties to entice me to read your stories. WELL IT WON'T WORK! I'M GOING TO READ YOUR STORY WITHOUT GOING TO THE PARTY JUST TO SPITE YOU! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Do you know who two steps to hell are?
No, but I can tell they're in a bit of a hot place...
Well, time for this whole "tagging" thing. More question answering! Oh, there's rules to this...
1. You must post the rules.
2. Each person must post 5 things about themselves in their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
6. No tag backs.
7. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 11 people.
Five things about me:
1. I played hockey for eight years
2. I love writing.
C. I like screwing with the rules in ways that doesn't break or bend them
63. Have I mentioned I like to goof around?
Xylophone: It's a number now! Oh right, something about me...Umm...I am Corny the Infamous! Kneel before me!
And the questions I was asked:
1. What's your inspiration?
Honestly, anything can inspire me, but usually I get inspired by sitting around and listening to music, sitting around and reading, or playing video games.
2. If you were to become a pony, what type would be your second choice?
3. You arrive in the ponyverse and change form, but you don't become a pony. You are now a...?
I am disinclined to acquiesce your request.

Pinkie Pie! Best employer EVER!
8. What item of technology would you introduce to Equestria? It can be reworked to be magic-based as needed.
Not sure, honestly. I'd have to say anything that CAN'T connect to the internet. I love the internet as much as the next guy, but there's no need to poison a pony's mind with Google Images. May God help us if Pinkie Pie gets her hooves on 4Chan...
9. If you could make a living at anything, what would it be?
Professional Musician. I would KILL to be able to perform before an audience.
10. Favorite song from the show? Includes remixes.

I. Dr. Atom Discharge
F. Well, there's nopony else I feel like tagging, so I'm going to break the "tag eleven people" rule.
Well, now I'm supposed to ask the ponies I tagged some questions. Well then, let's get asking.
1. If you have been tagged, it means I've conversed with you via messages on this site and I like you. Do you like me?
B. Cake or Pie?

Try to answer those questions outside of giving five pieces of information about yourself
Well, that's all for now! Go, my tagged friends! Link me to your blog posts!
Well, I'm happy to say that at long last I'm finally giving you guys another update! Let's get started with some news!
I've decided to put The Artifact on hold for now. As much as I want to write more of it, I just can't write now. Not if I want to finish If You Hear Me, Let Me Know and A Little Piece of Heaven. It's hard enough for me to focus while writing two stories of a similar genre at the same time, but trying to focus on writing those AND a high intensity adventure story would have a similar effect to throwing my brain in a deep fryer. I don't want to throw my brain in a deep fryer.
That said, I am well on my way through the next chapter of If You Hear Me, Let Me Know. I decided to write that instead of another update of A Little Piece of Heaven because I don't really know what I'm going to do with the next chapter of A Little Piece of Heaven yet.
Well, after those two stories come to a close (And as much as I hate to say it, they both will fairly soon), I'm going to shift my focus to The Artifact and the rest of the stories that I want to do. And I have to say, I really hate the idea of ending the story of Scootaloo Dash. It's been so fun to write out her story like this, and I don't want to stop. But as it stands, I have other projects that I want to do more, and all good, even great, things must come to an end. I just want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the thousandth time. You are all so amazing, and you're the reason I write. I love every one of you who reads my work, and I mean that completely. You guys have always been encouraging, helpful, and most importantly you've been so much fun. I promise that just because the Scootaloo Dash story is drawing near a close, I will not stop writing. No, I will write more than I ever have before for you wonderful people. I only hope I don't ever disappoint you.
I'd do Ask Corny, but my internet is crapping out on me, so I'm just gonna post this!
Until next time!
I'm not sure how many of you are like me and decided to follow Absolute Anonymous, but she needs some help. Rather, a friend of hers does. Check out her latest blog post and give her friend the help he needs. It's easy. Just sign a petition (Not really signing, but it counts as one). He needs 500 "signatures" for it to work. Check out the blog post via this link. Come on Bronies, it's time to stand up to help someone in need! And it's easy to do! Just read her blog post and the petition it will link you to and you'll understand why.
IF YOU ARE A MINOR, DO NOT SIGN! IF A MINOR SIGNS, THE PETITION IS VOIDED!
With love and tolerance,
Well, as Josh said in his comment, apparently you just have to be thirteen or older to sign. So if you're thirteen or older, get signing!
Thanks for last night everypony. I'll be honest, I kinda doubted anything would happen, but I wasn't sure. You guys were quick to support me, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. You guys again are proving why bronies are the best people in the world. Just, thanks. I don't really know what else to say. You were all incredibly comforting.
Well, I am currently afraid to be in my own family home with my brother. My parents are away, and he's throwing a temper tantrum that has me afraid to leave my room. I have no desire to leave my room, it's rather late, but sleep isn't something I feel comfortable with either right now. I'm not exactly excited by the prospect of getting a wonderful little beating from him, and I'm honestly not sure what the best way to avoid that is right now. He's way too unpredictable when he loses his temper, and loves to ensure that everyone around him knows that he's pissed off and spreads the mood until he can take it out on something.
Any help? Please?
In case you were wondering why I haven't made any posts with any real substance lately, it's because I really don't have anything to post about. I have a few questions to answer, and I'll get to those in due time, but as far as stories are concerned I really don't have anything. I'm at a roadblock with A Little Piece of Heaven and I'm working on the second chapter of The Artifact. It's late and I have to be up early tomorrow. My body won't let me sleep. Have some music.
Until next time,
Aaaaaaand it's that time again! Time to blog your spam! Ready! Here. We. GO!
The next chapter of If You Hear Me, Let Me Know is finally nearing completion! I am happy to say I finally broke writer's block yesterday and got almost the entire chapter done in about two hours! It just needs three or four more paragraphs and some proofreading and it will be ready for your enjoyment! Due to the extraordinarily long wait for this chapter, I am trying to make it a bit longer than usual, but don't expect anything like device heretic is going to send your way (especially because there won't be any Twilestia in my work. Ever. No matter how bad you guys want it.) I do feel awful making you guys wait so long, especially after the way I ended the last chapter. The next chapter is going to take a lighter turn, and to hold you over I'm going to give you this wonderful little excerpt...
Soarin' looked Steel over with an ear to ear grin. Steel had finally accepted Rainbow and Spitfire as family. He never expected to make so much progress in one day. He cast a glance at his liquor cabinet, which was disguised as any other cabinet in the house. He shook his head, but then again allowed his eyes to fall on the cabinet that contained every one of his beloved decanters of scotch, whiskey, and every other alcoholic beverage he celebrated with. He nodded and walked over to the cabinet.
"Hmm...for a first drink...Aha! Here we go!"
Soarin' pulled out two glasses and a decanter of his best whiskey. He tossed the glasses onto his forehead and held the decanter in his mouth. The peculiar balancing act was well practiced, and he made it back to the counter where Steel sat without incident. Steel looked up at Soarin' with a raised eyebrow.
"What's that for?" Steel asked. Soarin' grinned.
"Everypony has to start sometime. Consider it a treat for your progress." Soarin' responded. He then began to pour a small amount of the brown fluid into each glass, slowly to ensure he wouldn't spill even a drop. Steel shrugged.
"Works for me." Steel said. Steel took one of the glasses and raised it to his lips. Before he could take a drink however, a loud crash resounded as the door to the cottage exploded in on the two. Steel and Soarin' spun around to see an enraged Spitfire standing in the doorway.
"Steel, you are too young for that! As for YOU, Soarin'...I hate to make Fluttershy a widow, but everypony has to die sometime." Spitfire growled. Bloodlust dripped from her tongue as she spoke. Steel and Soarin' swallowed, their eyes wide with fear.
"Bucking Mom Sense..." They said in unison.
Well, hopefully that will hold you over until the chapter is done! Or maybe it will send you into a bloodlust rage, causing you to hunt me down and torture me with toothpicks until I release the next chapter. I'm gonna hope for the holding over. Anyway, there is so much more to talk about!
Now, I know it's one of my least read fictions (actually, it IS my least read fiction), but I can't stop thinking about all the things I can do for The Artifact. I've got it planned out in my head until about the fifth chapter, so as soon as I finish the next chapter of If You Hear Me, Let Me Know I'm going to hit the ground running with the early chapters of that story! It is going to become my main project as soon as If You Hear Me, Let Me Know and A Little Piece of Heaven are finished, so if you haven't read the first chapter yet I urge you to do so! It's probably my best work so far!
Well, I've mentioned A Little Piece of Heaven a couple of times tonight, but I haven't really talked about it. That's because there really isn't much to talk about regarding it. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the next couple of chapters. It's drawing near to it's end, that I can assure you. Although I easily could drag it out to be as long as the stories in my Scootaloo series, I'm not going to simply because I would rather work on my other projects. It's not that I really want to pass up the opportunity to write a Dashfire story (It's bucking Dashfire, for crying out loud! AWESOME!), but as I said before, I'm REALLY excited to get going with The Artifact.
Alright, I have a lot of stories planned for the future. Well, I am going to give you guys a lineup for my future works in the order that I am going to write them. This will not include either A Little Piece of Heaven or If You Hear Me, Let Me Know.
1) The Artifact
2) A Change of Scenery
3) Magic on the Farm
4) 300 + Followers Present!
5) Soaring with Butterflies
6) 300 + Followers Present, Pt. 2!
8) 300 + Followers Present, Pt. 3!
I know I didn't list my steampunk story, The End of Days. That's because I don't know where it's going to fit into this lineup. The fact of the matter is that it will either become my primary project after I finish The Artifact or it will be an ongoing side project through all of these stories. I also didn't factor in any spur of the moment oneshots that you guys know I love writing, so bear in mind that this is a very tentative lineup. And did you notice that there are three stories in that lineup that you don't know the titles of? That's another trilogy I have planned, and it's gonna be so great that I just can't spoil anything for you! That is going to be your present for the reaching of three hundred followers! I love every one of you who is following me and I hope you want to stick around!
Well, with a particularly long news segment out of the way, I think now would be as good a time as any to jump into Ask Corny!
honorwolf asks: which part of the seires did you or do you like writeing the most
I'm gonna assume he means my Scootaloo series, as that is the only series I have created to date! And I'll be honest when I say I have loved, and still love, every moment of it. It's been so much fun to write, especially because I'm writing it for such an awesome crowd of people. You guys mean so much to me, and I'll always do everything I can to please you. Unless it means writing Twilestia. That's not gonna happen. Such a horrible ship...I mean seriously, the age difference! Let me tell you, that ship would sink before it ever set sail if it were in my hooves!
thelonemississippibrony asks: What would you do if you found a way to go to a dimension filled with ponies?
What would anybrony do?
Paranova asks: Any suggestions on a new haircolour? :P
Whatever your natural haircolor is It's funny you asked me that question. The most I have ever done to style my hair in my life is shave it. I do nothing with my hair. As long as it is short (and not shaved or disheveled) I don't care. I don't style my hair and I've never dyed it. I also have never found anything a person does to change his/her natural appearance does anything to make a person more attractive. In fact, I honestly believe a person is most attractive in their natural, God given body with their natural, God given features. Even makeup in my opinion makes women less attractive to me. I couldn't tell you what it is, it's just how it is.
Well, that's all for tonight! Keep sending your Ask Corny questions one at a time, and they'll be answered in my next update!
With love, tolerance, and a strong desire to go to sleep,
