    September (cough) state of (hack) the (urgh, snot, splort, groan) writer

    I've been sick for the last three weeks. Frelling magnificent.

    that third thing: c25k

    Told you I was scatterbrained... I finally remembered what that third thing was that I've been doing. It's called 'c25k'.

    C25K stands for 'couch to 5k', as in 'couch potato to 5 kilometer runner'. It's supposed to lead you from being a fat slob sitting in front of the television to be able to run for 30 minutes - or roughly five kilometers - in about nine weeks.

    I've just started week 3, but I've been doing this for about five weeks... blame school holidays ending, trips to Estonia and some really shitty weather for making me repeat (not abandon or postpone) weeks 1 and 2. I have to say though, I think it works. It's scary when you start a new week, and the first attempt at each new week is always worse than the one before it... but I'm doing okay. I'm running the distance.

    If you've ever wanted to get into shape, but just don't know how, then this is the easiest, cheapest way to get into shape I've found yet: all you need is an mp3 player and a pair of sneakers. And clothes - most people look at you oddly if you're not dressed.

    Follow this link and download the podcasts, do what the nice lady says and you'll be on your way in no time.

    Oh mah gawd, it's alive! It's ALLIIVVEEE! (muahahaaa)

    Yah yah, I know: long time no see.

    Well, I thought I should kind of fix that. 'Kind of' because I'm kind of scatterbrained at the moment, don't really have the time to dedicate to a proper entry and a third reason which totally helps explain things. I have been busy in life. The good sort of busy, I guess, which leads to not much writing but doesn't lead to horrible depression and ennui. I've not really had much time to interact here, so... I'm alive. And writing - slowly.

    When it comes out, out and about chapter 10 will be the last. I hope it's as awesome as it is in my head...

    And when it comes out, king of diamonds chapter 28 won't be the last... but it will also be awesome.

    Promises, promises, I know, but almost one thousand people can't be that wrong, can they? Yes, that's right, almost a thousand people think I'm kinda awesome! I'm shocked. I'm also hoping that it's a modicum of talent and not merely having been here forever.

    So what have I been doing when not-writing? We-eelll... I've been coding. It might be going somewhere. And once I finish (actually, once it's 'good enough') then I might use what I've learned on something else. Something writing-y related.

    Stay tuned.

    So, what've you all been up to?

    Crystal Fair Con: Day 1: 72 hours remain

    Con day zero: 96* hours remaining

    So: Thursday was the first day of the con for me, same as it was for everyone on staff who wasn't actively involved in any real pre-setup.

    Thursday (super early!) saw Tabitha and Kevin arrive. I believe the flight went relatively well, but at something like 14 hours plus, it was exhausting as heck and the pair understandably needed to decompress and get some energy back. They did that by soldiering through the jetlag like real troopers and enjoying themselves some Helsinki in summer. The only stories I could really tell at this point would be second hand, so I won't embellish - they had fun and that was pretty much that.

    By the way, have I said yet that Tabitha is super-super-nice? And that so is Kevin? Because they both are. Honest. I've seen pissy diva's and pushy little monsters but Tabitha is so awesome and a lot of fun to be around, and Kevin knows his stuff when it comes to the little details that really round out the experience for the guests. If I ever get to do this again, thanks to the little tricks he just flat out does at the flick of a wrist (hoof? I guess he's an honorary pony, though - without being mean, honest - I'd see him more as a sharp-eyed griffon!) I'll be better next year.

    I didn't get to meet Tabitha on Thursday, and to be honest other than walking to a bunch of hotels I didn't care about because I didn't really need to know where they were and seeing a bunch of people I would come to care about but at that moment didn't (no offence, but on Thursday everyone was a stranger in person!) and faffing around at the airport with the sorts of minor schedule mishaps that can occur when Finnair (I think, don't quote me on that) loses an entire effin' plane's worth of luggage, everything went pretty well.

    My target, Anneli, made her way to Helsinki fine, but remember when I mentioned about losing all the luggage?

    Yup.

    You may have seen her joyful reunion with her bright yellow suitcase on twitter from the Friday, because her belongings had a mini vacation of their own in kocha bamba...

    I could have seriously missed Thursday, but I will totally agree that it was good preparation for what was to come...

    *yeah, I know, the actual time the con had wasn't that long, but what'm I gonna do, huh?

Scootaloo is a small pegasus with big dreams, one of those dreams is to be even more famous than her idol, Rainbow Dash. To get there, though, she needs to do a bit of growing, and first of all she needs to learn how to fly. A new invention from her friend Doctor Whooves may get her there in no time at all, literally before she knows it.

That picture alone is just pure win.

#2 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh god so many horrible puns...and I haven't even started reading. :heart:

#3 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Poor Scootaloo, though yay for cutie marks! Wonder what hers will be?

#4 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Scoots' cutie mark possibilities:

A Flank Capacitor

A Chicken Sandwich

ZALGO! (Because everything is better with HE WHO HIDES BEHIND THE WALL, right?)

#5 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Scootaboom......yes :scootangel:

#6 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

This? Is awesome. Well done, sir or madam.:moustache:

#10 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Wow if scootaloo needs to push her scooter at 88 mph I need to see how she does it

#11 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Quite possibly one of the greatest ideas I have ever heard of. Well played.

#12 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>>246954 Nonononono "Scoots" :pinkiehappy:

I'll come back and read this in a little bit. Just need to get my updates out of the way :pinkiehappy:

#13 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

hmmm not a fan of this but very good idea and I just absolutely LOVE the picture did you perhaps make that yourself:pinkiegasp:

Quote - a muzzle peered bleerilly around the corner at the retreating filly. - End Quote

Just saying, blearily is correct.

Fuck, I was going to write a story involving Scoots with this very title:pinkiesad2:

#16 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>Traveling back in time without a destination date

Well she's done for.

#17 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

LMFAO epic pic

>>247026

Ack, I'm such a bad proof-reader of my own work. Strangely enough, google docs didn't catch that until I corrected it, then I corrected it back, and then it informed me that the firstly-corrected version was correct. :trollestia:

#23 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

the title makes you wonder- is it mean back or fuck to the future xD

#24 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>>247139

Mind out of the gutter! Obviously it's a chicken speeding throu- *bricked*

#25 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Read it. Loved it. Moar! :scootangel:

#26 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

What ever this turns out to be, this I want to see.

Zecora rhymes are funny, isn't that right.... bunny?

Okay, I'm spent, or am I bent?

Please right some more, or it'll be a chore.

#27 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>>247097There's that word again. Heavy. Why are things so heavy in the furture, is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?:rainbowhuh:

#28 · 139w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

Buck to the future?! someone stole my idea of crossing back to the future!!!:twilightangry2: well i might as well give it a read.

hm... better cover picture

hm... better title/chapter title

hm... better use of characters than mine

hm... written far better than mine in all possible ways

:facehoof:

*sigh*... you sir, have surpassed my personal quality of writing and thus i render my crossover to be undersering of the crossover. I shall alert my own trackers that this is far better! :pinkiehappy:

#29 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

This is intresting. Let's see when this is going. :pinkiehappy:

#30 · 139w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

Scootalo on a hover scooter anypony?

#31 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

request 'thaumawatts' be replaced with 'jigathaums'

also, it's 'discreetly', not 'discretely'

#32 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>>247416

I was wondering whether anyone would call me on thaumawatts. Sticking to the movie - somewhat - would be a nicer touch, but a thaumawatt isn't all that big an amount of magic.

Also, nice catch on the discretely!

#33 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Tracking. Will read after "Elements of Discord" updates. *Hint hint, nudge nudge* :twilightsmile:

#34 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Well, that was interesting.  This story has somehow added a bit to my sanity......  How is that possible?  I must fix this mind error quickly..... But before I do that I must say that I loved this chapter and I'm looking forward to reading the following chapters.

Well with that all typed only one thing left to do:  MUFFIN BUTTON!:derpytongue2:

#35 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Great Scoot!

Yup, tracking this.

#36 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Splendid, my good lad! The combination of Dr Who and Back To The future is brilliant!

So now Scoots went back in time, carrying a sonic screwdriver? Sounds awesome :derpytongue2:

#37 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

is this king of moisture??

#38 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

How come Scootaloo is associated with time travel so much?

#39 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

Just watch, the cutie mark is time travel-themed.

#40 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

There goes history.

Or, alternatively, there goes the future.

Possibly both.

#41 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

>>248119 I would guess some kind of memetic combination of "Great Scoot!" and how she's unable to fly in the third dimension?

#42 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

You are now the official god of writing.

#43 · 139w, 1d ago · · ·

"It curved up at the end, a graceful lift that flung the trolley and the filly skywards. One of them was screaming." dear god how fast was Scootaloo going that she made the trolley scream in terror?

#44 · 139w, 21h ago · · ·

This was very funny.

#45 · 139w, 13h ago · · ·

>>249189

I laughed a bit too hard at that.

All in all, this is an awesome story. You've gone and made it your own, out of three different series'. It's some kind of hybrid chimera of a story.

#46 · 139w, 12h ago · · ·

>>249189

Oh lawdy, I hadn't even thought of it that way! That's now my head-canon!

>>251001

Hee! I'm kinda having fun with it. I did not want to do a copy/paste of BTTF with ponies, so I'm doing something a little different...

#47 · 139w, 10h ago · · ·

Greatly done, definitely going to follow. Thank you for ponyfiyng my favourite film, friend! :twilightsmile:

#48 · 139w, 10h ago · · ·

Can't tell if I'm pissed off because you beat me to the punch by writing Buck to the Future or happy because it's so great. I was gonna have Scoot as the main character and Doctor Whooves as the Doc. Even the chicken reference I was going to put in you already have! You're awesome! But now I'm not sure if I should just can the story, seeing as it was my first attempt at writing a crossover...for anything.

#49 · 139w, 9h ago · · ·

>>251782

I'm sorry! :applecry: I've had this rattling around in my brain for a while, and I finally got a chance to write it out and tweak it to be hopefully worthy... I hope you enjoy it anyhoof! :heart:

#50 · 139w, 9h ago · · ·

Man, I LOVE the Back to the future movies. I wonder which one you're going to adapt for this tale ?  :pinkiehappy:

Especially if the lead is Scootaloo, time for some good laughs. :scootangel:

Please do keep up the good work upon such a great tale like this one.
