    Skeeter Uses the Bookshelves!

    [10/8/14, 8:00:03 PM] Erik McClure: LOL

    [10/8/14, 8:00:04 PM] Erik McClure: " xXFireTailsXx added Commander Hurricane Fucks Every Mare In Cloudsdale to Horsecock "

    [10/8/14, 8:00:50 PM] Skeeter The Lich: ...I would need to add that to PoL, wouldn't I...?

    [10/8/14, 8:02:02 PM] Skeeter The Lich: OH SHIT.

    [10/8/14, 8:02:05 PM] Skeeter The Lich: NO.

    [10/8/14, 8:02:12 PM] Skeeter The Lich: WHY DID I ADD IT TO THAT ONE.

    [10/8/14, 8:02:17 PM] Erik McClure: LOL

    [10/8/14, 8:02:23 PM] Erik McClure: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    [10/8/14, 8:02:43 PM] Erik McClure: Yes, clearly that fic deserves to be in the top 15 fics of all time

    [10/8/14, 8:02:54 PM] Skeeter The Lich: AAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHH I MISSSSCLIIIIIICCCCKKKKKEEEDDDDD.

    [10/8/14, 8:03:47 PM] Erik McClure: Now we wait and see how long it takes skeeter to figure out how to remove it

    [10/8/14, 8:04:30 PM] Skeeter The Lich: DOne.

    [10/8/14, 8:04:32 PM] Skeeter The Lich: Thank god.

    Yup.  I did that.

    For clarification, I now have two bookshelves.  "Skeeter's Top 15", and "The Price of Loyalty".

    As you may expect, my PoL one has, well, the PoL stories and my Top 15 has my Top 15.

    I made the mistake of adding a, er, certain clopomedy to my top 15 shelf.

    Fun times.

    Aside from all of that, I love the new update, I really do...

    Except the prospect of tediously sorting 3000 stories is not the most enticing of things and may convince me to just not bother with the new feature entirely.

    Which sucks.  I was looooooong waiting for them when they were first announced.

    Soooooo much potential with them!

    What of you guys?  What do you make of the new stuff?

    Self-Esteem.

    I'm gonna level with you all here.

    I have horrible self-esteem issues.  Many are the days when I curl up in a depressed manner and fully believe myself to be a nuisance to everyone I talk to.  Same goes for believing that I'm a hated bastard and the world would be better off without me.

    Fortunately it's never been to the point of suicide, nor will it ever get to that point.  But it still happens.

    I came to the site, way back when on October 6th, with no friends.  No follows.  No nothing.

    I was, simply put, no one.

    And that was fine.  I came to try and tell a story, and read a lot of stories.  And I did that.  My stories are nothing special, but I did read a lot, and I commented.  I said what I thought of the story, whether I liked it, and so on.  Even if it was just to say "nice job", I still said it.  Because, hey, why not, right?

    And as I commented and read, I started to get follows.  Then I did some prereading and offered my view as your audience, because that's what I was.  Your target audience, the guy who'd read the fic you put out.  And I got more from it.

    I don't know where you all came from.  I don't know why you all follow me.  But here you are.  And I am pleased you are.

    Since I came here, my self esteem has gone much higher than it was...  So many years of being call names and beaten up and insulted both at school, work, and home has left me a broken miserable wreck at the drop of a hat, but...  That's been changing.

    Finding ponies has help me get over that.  And I am truly thankful for it.  I am also scared.

    Scared because when I notice that follow count drop by a number, I freak out something horrible.

    "What did I do?"  "Why did they leave?"  "Did I say something stupid again?"  and they grow worse as I think of it.  A little something I'm working on fixing and all.

    I don't think I have much of a point in this blog.

    Well, aside from saying to you thank you.  So...

    Thank you for being my legion.

    And.

    Thank you for sticking around with me for 2 years.

    You will never know just how happy it makes me to know that I had some sort of impact to make you watch my various antics on this site.

    S'all I got today, guys.  Thanks for listening and here's to a 3rd year of pony action and another 800 legionaries!

A compilation (done with permission) of the following group: The Mailbox


The Mane Six have left Ponyville for the summer, each traveling to a different part of Equestria for different reasons. But a few months and a little distance can't stop their friendship!

This book collects the letters they send back and forth, telling each other about the new places they go and new ponies they meet, comforting each other when they get lonely or homesick, and keeping the spirit of friendship alive.

Rated Teen Sex for alcohol references and some innuendo.

Be sure to check out the Cast, Crew, and Extras chapter for links and titles of the side stories!

This is good. Very good.

     Is... is the title supposed to be "Compliation" or "Compilation"...  Anywho, I've been looking forward to this for quite some time.  I can't wait to give it a good read.

Edit: Nevermind the question, just googled the word.  It's right.

Edit the edit...: I misread the word from google, it looks like it should be "Compilation"

~SolidFire

(This reminds me of Letters from a Disgruntled Friendship Student. LOL)

Nice work! You've definently got the characterization down, something that a lot of people mess up!

Keep up the good work, can't wait to see more!

I'd say thanks, but...

I didn't make it.

...I need to get that up now...

You should still credit Acreu, I think. It was his concept for what Rarity was doing, after all.

I literally could not stop thinking of this song.

Don't know why. It's got a f:pinkiegasp:cking awesome solo, though.

Also, maybe I'm not reading into it enough (or too much), but I don't understand why Fluttershy won't be in Ponyville for a few more days. Is she going to the animal sanctuary?

Other than that, you have assembled a team of badasses, Nick Fury Skeeter. I applaud you.

How would you like to use your writing skills for your country?

:fluttercry: Ah, here it is. The summer of love and love unrequited.

Wasn't almond extract one of those things griffons hunted all the time?

I am going to spend so long trying to decipher that one... :rainbowlaugh:

Like. It. Update soon!

#43 · 33w, 2d ago · 1 · · Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash ·

I'm very familiar with the story "First Steps" that xjuggernaught here is writing with Steel Resolve. And here as well as there, he is so good at nailing Pinkie Pie! :pinkiesmile: Her manic energy just jumps right off the page.

If they weren’t so fast in the air and great in bed, I would’ve never dealt with them.

Whoa. :rainbowderp: Did she get it on with Gilda?

(Trixie’s working with lions, tigers and bears, how cool is that?).

Oh my! :trixieshiftright:

I really enjoy the epistolary format. It gives an air of mystery and drama to an otherwise slice of life story since there a lot things mentioned whose explanations may come in the other characters' letters. Anyway, I look forward to more of this. (I know I already got a preview of Fluttershy and Rarity's letters from Steel Resolve, but there remains quite a few holes that need to be filled. Wow, that sounded dirtier than I meant it to. :twilightblush:) So, keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

#44 · 33w, 1d ago · · · Cast, Crew, and Extras ·

Hey, cool! I did some of this kind of sort of!

I think you made a format error here, mate.

Alfred

His name was Albert, if you don't mind I point it out, that is...:fluttershysad:

While I don't like, you know, more than two persons dating each other, this was a good chapter!:yay:

no idea what they look like, so I took

A little bit got cut off here, not sure if it is like that in the mailbox or not, but it seemed relevant.

>>4034515

If you don't mind me asking, what don't you like about polyamory?

#48 · 33w, 1d ago · · · Cast, Crew, and Extras ·

>>4034601

I don't mind you asking. I don't really know, I just don't really like the thought of more than two persons dating each other.. :applejackunsure:

Fluttershy x Moose OTP! :yay:

I feel bad for saying this, but Fluttershy is really getting on my nerves...Like yes I get that she's shy and a scaredy-cat and stuff, but I don't think I've ever seen her so timid that I'd actually call her mindless before.

>>4034601

In a dream Dash had (which I'll link to later), she imagines Flutterdshy riding what she imagines a moose to be.
