    out and about, the 'oh shit son' update (take 2!)

    Why the hell are you reading this? Why aren't you reading Out and About in the Equestrian Kingdom? Chapter 10 in particular?

    Yeah, that's right. Come back here and discuss after. Bring your friends*

    EDIT: and lo, he said to me, "it is done".

    I just published the last chapter and the epilogue, and marked it complete. Enjoy!


    *you know, a really, really good present would be to see updating this story, finishing it in fact, getting me to 1000 followers. I'd, like, have to buy a cake and shit.

    November blues, and the 991 reasons not to have them

    I'm alive, and I'm relatively hale and hearty. I've also been incredibly busy... writing the last chapter(s) of out and about.

    Imagine my surprise when, as I finished up chapter 10, I found fimfic of the opinion that it was over 12k words long. Imagine my surprise, also, when I discovered that I'm nearly at a kilopone of followers? I'm humbled and honoured, and wondering if a) I'll actually hit or even break 1000, and whether I'll manage to get there before or after I post the cleaned up final chapters.

    All I've got left is the epilogue. It's so close I can taste it. And after that, I'm going to be writing the final chapters of king of diamonds. At 50k words until it's finished, though, that one's going to be taking a while.

    It's been a weird year for me, over all. Just about a year and a month ago, I was let go from my old work. It still stings that I gave 13 years of my life to a company I respected, only to be buttfucked by a bunch of indians in a false-flag operation seemingly designed to fire as many people as possible, as quickly and as cheaply as possible.

    I'm most of my way towards my new occupation - maybe, at least - so I do have a destination in mind... I'm just not sure if I want to get there or not.

    Thanks for sticking with me, I know this is taking longer than you might expect or hope, but I am getting there.

    Also, if anybody wants to help edit the last three chapters of out and about, send me a pm, I'll give you the link.

    Middy out.

    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?

There comes a time in every growing dragon's life when he has to go visit the doctors. Twilight just needs to show him who's boss... hijinks, as they say, ensue.

Awesome story I was laughing my ass off most of the time!

#2 · 163w, 1d ago · · ·

ok, ok, this was pretty good. It amused me.

A few little parts in this (grammar wise) could be changed, but they're not so rampant that it takes away from the story, good job!

#3 · 163w, 1d ago · · ·

The entire story was cute, but for some reason my favorite part is the idea that dragon saliva can eat through diamond like a human's can through hard candy.:moustache:

#4 · 163w, 9h ago · · ·

I'd try to bite people if they were trying to neuter me as well.

#5 · 163w, 6h ago · · ·

Oh, Celestia. :trollestia: You and your soaps...

#6 · 162w, 2d ago · · ·

:moustache: < "Needs more moustache."

#7 · 158w, 14h ago · · ·

I've always wondered how Celestia sends scrolls (and nurses) back

was there a detail I'm forgetting? can she just wave her horn and zap it back?

#8 · 149w, 5d ago · · ·

I'd definitively recommend reading this before reading "Teething Problems", the two stories really tie in well to each other.

#9 · 110w, 6d ago · · ·

LOL nicely done

#10 · 80w, 4d ago · · ·

I love it! :rainbowwild:
