    FRAG IT

    I'VE HAD IT! YOU HEAR ME? I'VE HAD IT WITH THIS STORY NOT UPDATING! WHO IS THIS GUY, HE DOESN'T WRITE ANYTHING AT ALL AND oh wait it's me.

    I've still had it. Setting a deadline here: New chapter out by the end of the month. If not sooner.

    You people freaking remind me.

    What I did last chapter was post a daily journal detailing the progress in word count and/or an explanation of why I was a lazy bum. Gonna do that again. Those will not be tagged to the story and will be deleted when a new one is posted to avoid too much spam. (Glorious spaaaaam!)

    May the Swedes of ROSMT pummel me with fish if I fail.

    ...wat

    Toying around with the new statistics trackers on the site and I've found something odd with the view counts:

    The Masks We Wear: 6,409

    Falling Stars: 7,594

    ASMD: 37,700

    Thirty-seven thousand, seven hundred.

    Thirty-seven thousand seven hundred?!

    WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN.

    I call BS on the statistics features. Falling Stars is my highest rated story and it's only got 7.5k views, and I'm supposed to believe the story involving Luna in Unreal Tournament has had the population of a good-sized city view it? Bull.

    Knightly, I am disappoint.

    (Not really, he's done amazing things with this site. Just poking fun at what's clearly a bug.)

    Enjoy epic music:

    Non-specific promises of possibly updating Falling Stars in the next month might be made. But I make no promises on making promises.

    New Music Makes Rokas A Happy Author


    Four of my top five favorite bands released new albums this year, all within months of each other.

    I am deliriously happy, and I've only gotten two of them so far (love Amazon.com's mp3 service).


    Listen to those brilliant, daft bastards. If listening to such awesome Metal doesn't make you happy, then there's no hope for ya, son.

    ALRIGHT YOU SKIMMIN' PONCES, what the Hell do you want next? Falling Stars? ASMD? One of the newer pieces o' crap? I feel like punching words.

    Thanks

    Didn't get much input last time, but some is better than none. Decided to go with option 2, and I've worked on it a bit more.

    And that's where I come to this journal's point. Namely, I've got that feeling, that inkling that what I originally thought was awesome, might actually be just complete and utter crap. Plus, I'm not sure my writing on this is up to par, so... anyone want to take a gander at what I have so far and give me some criticism? I'm not really sure if I want to spend more time on this thing if it is, in fact, just absolute crap.

    So, if anyone with decent pre-reader/editor/whatever experience/XP/certs wants to take a look and give some hopefully helpful criticism, you can look at the unpublished story here: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/211969/darkness-and-flame I'm looking for criticism on not only the technical aspects, but also the other elements (heh) as well, like title, description, idea, story flow, proper tags, etc.

    For those of you who take the time and give accurate feedback and criticism, thank you in advance.

    Have some suitably oppressive yet hopeful music:

Rainbow Dash is a headstrong, athletic pony who is utterly faithful to her friends and doesn't keep any secrets from them. Or so she pretends. Yet a surprise visit from Twilight Sparkle is about to blow the secret wide open, and the multi-hued pegasus will find out just how strong their friendship is.


Note: This story was written in the week following the airing of "May The Best Pet Win", and well before "Read It and Weep" was even known about. As such it haws since been overtaken by canon, but most folk tend to like it still so I will upload it here so I have a bit of a presence on FIMfiction beyond "lurker #347,921".

This story also includes "The Unrelated Epilogue" which is a mini-story based on a loose bit in the main one that I felt did not stand on its own, but that I wanted up nonetheless. It has Luna, but not RD or TS.

Cover image is a screencap from the show.

I've read this before and loved it! It's good to see it here.

#2 · 137w, 3d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Favourites list already.

#3 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Pretty good I like it!

Also can any of you guys who read this comment can you please read my first ever story on my page called:

Another Rainbow in the Sky.

I need views for feedback before my collaborator Dark Lightning posts part 2 and before I can publish it (because it doesn't have at least 1000 words!:flutterrage:)!

Thanks!

everypony seems to be posing stuff that was only on google docs at one point.  glad to see this one, though

#5 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

An amazing and well-thought out story, to which I can somewhat relate as well. The moment Luna started describing her experience of the concert in the second chapter (“It was if I could hear the voice of life itself shouting defiance at the abyss, refusing to be beaten or broken by trials and tribulations.”) I couldn't help but think of this song, especially the chorus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKePB70ncPE

#6 · 137w, 2d ago · 2 · · The Masks We Wear ·

I'd love to have the complete series of Mecha Battle Dragon Suit Celestia, signed or not. :rainbowdetermined2:

Ha, I read this one. It is pretty good.

#9 · 137w, 2d ago · 2 · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

I always thought she might do something like that....

And that is indeed a great way to describe music.

METAL LIVES

....I like it.

#10 · 137w, 2d ago · 2 · · The Masks We Wear ·

This is gorgeous! Very funny, but also very touching. It's sad to see Rainbow having to shut away a part of who she is because ponies are jerks to her. I think a lot of us can empathize with her plight. Well done!

#11 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

awww

the whole opening herself up things was amazing

#12 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

#14 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

I remember reading this on dA, I believe, when it was first posted on EqD. I really enjoyed it.

Glad to see it on fimfiction now. :twilightsmile:

METAL LIVES !!!!

#17 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

From a legitimate Metalhead: good show, Sir, very good show. Were there still a rating system, I would give this piece five Shattered Skulls out of five.

#18 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Anime and Metal. 2 things I love so much. I love pony too, but it's been in my live a far shorter time.

Epilogue deserves to be it's own story.

#19 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Hehe... The Mecha-Celestia thing sounds pretty cool actualy. :rainbowlaugh:

#20 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

So what inspired this one?:trixieshiftright:

#21 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Name one person in America right now who isn't a little nerdy.

ONE.

Anyways. Luna likes metal? Really? Nooooooo, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. She likes dubstep. Duh. :trollestia:

#22 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

I saw this fic when it was posted on Equestria Daily and I really enjoyed it :twilightsmile:

#23 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Anyone know which episode This screencap came from?

#24 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Very touching dialogue. I'd love to see someone expand this idea into a longer, proper story. Heh. Japonyme.

#25 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

A pleasure to re-read these two fine pieces. :pinkiesmile:

May The Best Pet Win.

#27 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

One little thing i noticed- "Spike and Princess Celestia were like friends, of course, but the air of official business always kept things distant between the pricness", but other than that awesome fic!

#28 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Eddie Riggs approves.

#29 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

The title reminds me too much of "The Games We Play", though. That was quite a HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG story.

#30 · 137w, 2d ago · · 1 · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

Great story! I find it awkward that the referral came from a google search for clopfic baby carrots

#31 · 137w, 2d ago · 1 · · The Masks We Wear ·

PLEASE OH PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE GONNA WRITE THAT ANIME AS A FIC!

:trollestia:The awesome levels would be off the charts!:rainbowlaugh:

Luna Loves Sabaton!!!!!  

I swear I need a shirt with Luna singing 'Metal Machine' on it!

Luna: COME TOUCH MY METAL MACHINE!

#34 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Awesome work man. I love the thought of Luna being a Metalhead.

#35 · 137w, 2d ago · 2 · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

>>299643

She rides in a gothic-themed chariot pulled by bat-winged pegasi, her cloak turned into bats and flew away, she's constantly loud, and when she gets mad lightning flashes from the sky. Luna is so undeniably Metal that she's practically a walking album cover. \m/

#36 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

>>300322

I'm glad someone figured out the band! And also the fact that the song I described is, in fact, "Metal Machine". :D I consider it one of the eminent examples of power metal and the idea of Luna rocking out to it just made me feel all warm and fuzzy. ;)

#37 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

This is a really good story. It made me think of rainbow in a different light for a while which only served to flesh out her character further.

Congrats

I've been a huge fan of Sabaton for several years now.  I've got 3 of their CDs and almost half of their Discography in youtube links including the Van Canto cover of Primo Victoria[where lead singer Joakim Broden provided some kickass vocals]

All in all?  Sabaton is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of Metal, and Metal Machine shows perfectly EXACTLY why they're so great.  

Because they remember, and RESPECT the past!

"P.S. On a completely unrelated note, my friend Rainbow Dash wants to know if you will sign her copy of the Mecha Battle Dragon Suit Celestia manga the next time you visit? She says it will make it 20% cooler." :rainbowlaugh:

Good read, take my like and brohoof /)

#40 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Sci-fi or die.

Also, METAL!

>>300448 Whaddya mean, 'practically'? :yay:

#42 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

This is how Bronies spread the Love and Tolerance basically. You watch it alone, they find out, you panic, they reassure you and then they're interested! Yup! Bronies in a nutshell.

#43 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

"Death to the false metal!" silly Luna, rock birthed metal, without rock, therewould be no metal, rock is better, case closed.  Commas, commas everywhere

#45 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Unrelated Epilogue ·

I have this image.... Of Luna grinning like a fool having her picture taken with chain smoking Lemmy.  I cannot shake this image, and it's so awesome I'm not sure I want to.

#46 · 137w, 2d ago · · · The Masks We Wear ·

Very good.

But dear god you need to reformat this. Get rid of the walls of text please.

Always start a new line when the speaker changes.
