So I just got done watching Rainbow Rocks, and thought I'd let you all know how it's gonna play into The Misadventures of Sunset Shimmers. Short answer is: it won't.
Since its reveal I knew I'd have to either incorporate it or not, depending on the world/character building that Hasbro would use to make the movie work. Sadly, the world development they've added is pretty hard to work around what I have planned, unless I make this sorta midway between EQG and RR. Unfortunately, the character development makes this impossible. Characters have been established in RR that were established differently in Misadventures, and Sunset Shimmers character especially, as well as how others act around her, are vastly different to what I've already got down and plan to build further.
So sadly, Rainbow Rocks will have no influence on The Misadventures of Sunset Shimmers. You'll just have to consider it an AU... of an AU. The comic annual last year that shows Sunset Shimmer's backstory was great and I was easily able to work that into my plans (in fact it made what I already had planned before writing even greater!), but this movie is simply too much of a gamechanger. That said, I do have plans for another story based in the EQG world that I may or may not be able to encorporate RR canon into. That of course will have to wait until I'm feeling better.
Now as for the movie itself, if you haven't seen it, I recommend it. 8/10. Good solid plot, fun characters, sorta okay villains, didn't end abruptly or outstay its welcome. It was nothing spectacular, but it was a fun watch and I'd certainly buy the DVD to support it. Just... fuck off Flash, okay? It's obvious you're only there to fulfil a 'romantic plot point' qouta -_-
SPOILER BELOW (okay, so I couldn't resist writing ONE spoiler, but at least I tagged it! ><;; ):
Only gripe was that Sunset Shimmer essentially became a 'fanfic cliché Trixie', in that she's so overwhelmed by her guilt her whole personality performed a 180. I don't mind characters trying to act more friendly towards others or changing sides, but you can do that without rewritting who they are and why we love them to begin with.

Since it's been a while since I've done an update blog, I thought I'd let anypony who actually reads these things know what's happening lately.
First of, The Misadventures of Sunset Shimmers - as you probably noticed by now if you follow that story, I updated it not too long ago (after a VERY long hiatus). I was hoping to get another chapter out either this week or next, but I've been feeling really unwell lately (what I thought was asthma turned out to be a chest infection and I've been taking some meds for it, which have been making me feel very out of it). I'll continue the next chapter as soon as I'm feeling better, but until then I wanna take it easy. I'm planning on writing up a silly little short fic today so long as my condition doesn't take a massive drop.
I've also got another fic I'm gonna work on once I'm feeling better, of the more adult variety :3 Anypony who's a fan of RariTwi, Twidash, Twinkie, TwiShy, TwiJack, or all of the above should look forward to it.
And that's about it for now. Sorry for the delay in Sunset Shimmers after just ending the hiatus. It's just super hard to focus on writing when it's difficult to breath ><;; Hopefully I'll be better soon and can get the next chapter out to you before Halloween.
Peace out y'all, don't get a chest infection. They suck.

26w, 12hChangeling: Revised!2 comments · 241 views
So as some of you are probably aware, I cancelled and dropped the Changeling sequal I had been working on some time last year, but I also told you that I was planning on revising the original Changeling story. Welp, the first chapter of this revision is now finished. I will be uploading the whole revised story in one go after I have finished all chapters, but for now you can find the revised first chapter here, and if you want a side-by-side comparison of the old and the new, you can find the ye olde chapter 1 here.
Now, you're probably wondering: "What changes will you be making?" "Are you making us re-read this entire drivel just for some extra scenes?" "ALICORN AURA?! RUINED FOREVER!!!!!!!!! So hyped for S4 though."
Well, rest assured, the story will remain unchanged as far as plot goes. The changes made will be largely grammatical and spelling fixes. It will essentially be a tidying up, fixing mistakes I left in on the first run and tweaking bits here and there so that the words flow better and make more sense. Thing is, I've grown a lot as a writer since I wrote Changeling and now I wish to use my new-found experience to make better what is one of my personal favourite fictions that I have ever written.
Other changes you may find are:
*Re-arranged dialogue, if I feel that the way it was structered originally is clusmy or awkwardly written. The dialogue will essenitally stay the same, though. Same meaning, same plot progession, simply styled differently.
*Added dialogue, if I feel I didn't flesh a certain part out enough or it's simply hard to follow as it was. Again, the plot will remain the same and it won't be massive changes. An example of this is in the first chapter's revised version near the beginning. Odysseus asks Knight how he is and Knight responds that he is fine. Odysseus then passes Knight and says: "That's good. Please continue to protect my sister as you have been." I didn't feel that this scene worked well as it was.
I felt the interaction was a little weak, so I added a line by Knight saying: "Though I am unworthy, thank you for your concern." Odysseus then responds by telling Knight that he values him as somepony who portects Aura with his life, before asking him to continue protecting her. As you can see, the plot remains unchanged, everything proceeds as it did in the original, but it fleshed out the scene a little (in my opinion), which I feel is especially important at the start of a story, when we're just meeting these characters for the first time.
*Plothole fixes - I've skimmed over Changeling swiftly and as far as I can tell, there aren't any, but a more thorough read may reveal some, or perhaps scenes that are confusing and hard to grasp. If I find any of these, I may take steps to add a little more so that these are cleared up, but as with all changes, the plot will remain unchanged.
*... One or two extra scenes that I was going to include as flashbacks in the sequal... OKAY, so there WILL be some extra scenes that were not in the original version (MAY! Still haven't decided for sure.) These scenes revolve around Precision Perfect. Remember how he sorta disappeared after Shining Armor went to pursue Trixie? Well, he actually went off to check up on Cadance and ran into Mystic at that time. There was also another scene in the last chapter I cut out and decided to move to the sequal where he is talking to Celestita. Both of these scenes were going to be flashbacks in the sequal as I intended to actually use Precision then, but as the sequeal is no more, I am considering adding those scenes (and ONLY those scenes. Precision won't suddenly jump into the final battle with everyone) just for completion sake. I mean, I introduced him, and I focussed at least SOME attention on him, so I figure the least I can do is show what he was up to, right?
Anywhom, that's about it. I hope you all enjoy the revised version of this fic. Lemme know in the comments what you think of the revisions I've made so far and thank you for being such awesome peoples and enjoying this fic that I loved working on some one to two years ago :)
