    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?

When Twilight Sparkle needs to see the dentist, some extra precautions are needed. The unicorn is not so very fond of doctors, so Spike has to resort to extreme measures, with some help from his friends.

Loved it xD.

#2 · 175w, 6d ago · · ·

I totally feel Twi and her fear of doctors/dentists. I mean, how can they look so calm when ripping your mouth or other body part open? Scary much?

#3 · 162w, 5d ago · · ·

I have to say this was a fun read

#4 · 156w, 4d ago · · ·

X) great story :twilightsheepish:

#5 · 156w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

Confound you, Ponychan! You drive me to read like a reviewer!

"purple equine’s bedroom" - Lavender Unicorn's bedroom?

Space between "barely" and "opening"? Why?

The shadow is a he? Wouldn't a shadow be an "it"? Unless it's the shadow *of* something.

"Fishing an object out of an unseen pocket - a thin ring, coloured a dull green but almost black in the half-light"

Why not just say "Fishing out a thin green ring out of an unseen pocket?"

"Where's my magic?" - Why the break?

"keep having to posting them back" <- wut?

"as she was led" passive. Maybe "as her friends led her"?

"a pristine white unicorn with gorgeous purple mane and tail"

MUST you subject us to such copious amounts of Lavender Unicorn Syndrome?

"Beauty comes naturally to a girl like Twilight"

Yes. That's why Rarity freaked out and gave Twilight an emergency makeover when she saw her for the first time.

(If you were going for sarcasm, I wasn't picking that up)

"yellow and equally timid looking pegasus"

WE KNOW WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE! Just say "Fluttershy".

So, wait. The "horn rot" was just an elaborate way to get Twilight under their control? JEEZ! Why not just jump on her as she walks out the door?! Whose idea was this anyway?

"Practicing for this in secret had been hard" get rid of the italics

Final thoughts:

GOOD GOSH, her friends are MEAN! That's a really cruel prank, even for Rainbow Dash!

If I was Twilight, I wouldn't talk to Pinkie Pie for a week!

I'm tempted to say the entire prank is simply out of character for all her friends. I just don't see them doing something that mean. :fluttershysad:

#6 · 149w, 3d ago · · ·

I'd definitively recommend reading "Calling the Shots" before reading this, gives a little bit of background.

#7 · 125w, 34m ago · · ·

>>43040 The reason they put on this elaborate prank was because in dude's last story, Calling the Shots, Twi tricked Spike into going to the vet's office, and though it all worked out for him in the end, he wanted to get her back. Thus, Spike thought up this prank, which wouldn't have been possible without at least Rarity's help for her ability to use magic to tranq Twi and Celestia's help in acquiring the ring, but the others were there mostly to be trolls, but also to restrain their friend so Rare would have an easier shot since she's less well versed in the use of magic aside from telekinesis and gem-finding.

Honestly, I don't find it mean, since all in all, their ultimate goal was good dental health for their friend. They just have interesting ways to show their care for her.

Very nice, this is actually my second read through of these, I simply love these stories! Thank you for writing them!:yay:

Hated it!:twilightangry2:

The beginning was boring!:ajsleepy:

And what her friends did was just CRUEL:fluttershysad:

#10 · 36w, 1d ago · · ·

Ooh, I think I remember this story being referenced somewhere. Glad to finally find the original again.

#11 · 34w, 13h ago · · ·

God, what was that spell they did on twilight? We need Rarity to do it on me at my next appointment...

#12 · 19w, 5d ago · · ·

>>4087957 well, her friends did it for Twilights well being... They knocked her out so she would go to the dentist and not get cancer or something...

#13 · 19w, 5d ago · · ·

>>171 IKR? If your afraid of the dentist, search the group Dentist Phobics Unite! Or something like that. It's fun!

#14 · 4w, 2d ago · · ·

cute, well done

#15 · 2w, 5d ago · · ·

:duck: >>43040 uh, they weren't exactly being MEAN, they were just trying to help their friend get to the dentist, because she was afraid. To be honest, when I'm older, and if I'm still afraid of the dentist, I can already imagine my friends spiking my drink or something with an an aesthetic or some loopy stuff or whatever and getting me to the dentist. I know it might be a little extreme, but trust me, these ponies are coming from a good place.

#16 · 3d, 6h ago · · ·

:twilightangry2: You did what?

:raritystarry:Spikey didn't spike your tea :moustache: Rarity didn't zap you cold!

:ajsmug::rainbowhuh::pinkiegasp::flutterrage: We did Nothing at all

:trollestia: That was so good, I'm getting another piece of cake!
