    Inky Jay Opens a Casting Call

    Hello fillies and gentlecolts and all other creatures of lesser repute who are for some reason reading this overly long introduction line that *pauses for deep breath* Okay, yes, my obligatory attempt at comedy is now out of the way, and we can get down to the nitty gritty of this blog post stuffs.

    So, yes, as the title implies I, Inky Jay, am opening a casting call for a particular individual. As many of you may remember, Lapis, I believe, posted not too long ago that he was beginning work on generating original writing. *inner writer applauds* Anyhow, not to sound like a complete prick, but I have been writing since I was intelligent to form sentences in sequence on paper. That being said, from the age of fifteen to the age of eighteen I worked on and completed an original book clocking in at over 400k words long. I'm now 21 and that work was full of a lot of teenage angst and general inconsistency I can't abide as an older, more mature and experienced writer.

    Suffice it to say, that work no longer exists, and in the past few months involving long conversations with myself and talks with Lapis, I've re-worked the original concept into something more stable and something I'm very excited to get to work on. However, a lot of the concepts of the world are very, very dark (rape, murder, torture, etc); and as such, Lapis doesn't personally feel comfortable reading through and being my wingman advisor on this project.

    I can totally dig that (we're besties after all), but it doesn't change the fact that I wanna have someone with editing and analytical skill to give me critical feedback as I endeavor to begin this work anew. And I'm pretty sure you've already figured out where this is going at this point.

    If you'd like to  work on this with me, send a PM with the reasons you'd think you'd be a good editor. HOWEVER, there are a couple of things you should know before hitting that send button.

    1) I reserve the right to refuse any application. This is my baby after all.

    2) You cannot be squeamish about any subject matter. At all. I stress this point strongly, as this story focuses a lot around severe, brutal crime (as stated above) and will spare no detail in fight scenes.

    3) It's not necessarily a requirement, but I'd like someone who's chill with video/voice chats over G+ (don't rag on me about skype, I'm using a chromebook).

    4) If you love music, it's even better, because more than likely I'll share songs I've found with you and geek out about how I'd love to set such-and-such a scene to it.

    So, yeah, that's about it. Send those PM's if you're interested and send people who you think might be my way too.

    Cheers!

    Inky

    PS - Since I mentioned loving to share and talk about music, have this piece of energizing awesome.

They say you can’t miss what you’ve never had. And Scootaloo would be inclined to agree with them. Except, she did have all a little filly would want from a home, and she does miss what she lost.  Not that anypony would help her get it back.

Would they?

Amazingly well done!

-adds to favorites and select stories folder-

I like this, it's a Scootaorphan fic that's not entirely heartbreaking and it doesn't involve Rainbow Dash finding out. It's Applejack, certainly a fresh take. :ajsmug:

The originality on this just jumped up at least 10 levels. :scootangel:

Picturing Rainbow after that conversation is breaking my heart.

Damn it all to hell.

Got near the end then Home by Phillip Phillips comes on, now the tears won't stop! Bravo!

I like it but why is it in big macs stories group?

Oh sweet Celestia, it's so beautiful!!! :raritycry::fluttercry: I love it so much!!! Way to go, Scoots Apple!!!

I've been searching for a story of this nature since I first got here. The idea of Scootaloo living with Applejack and her family has a natural feel to it, much like the description of the Apple family home itself feels. It's just...

Dude thanks for making this awesome story!

I just had a weird thought: If Scootaloo actually falls for either Sweetie Belle or Applebloom does that count as incest despite the fact that they are related through adoption?

>>3557189 I know right. Poor Dashie, she can be a sort of sister to Scoots but can't help her any more than that. She must feel awful.:raritydespair:

Yeah, very good. Im liking this idea :twilightsmile:

Really enjoying this so far!  It's an interesting change of pace from most of the fics pertaining to Scootaloo's home or lack thereof, and I'm curious to see what the dynamics between Scoots and the Apples are going to be like.  The fact that she's a thief is also intriguing to me; I've never read a fic operating on that presumption before, though I'd hardly deny that it makes a certain kind of a sense.

Other than that: I thought everyone was really well-written, with plenty of feels to go about and many more plainly looming on the horizon.  Definitely looking forward to the next chapters!  :scootangel:

This. Is. Absolutely. BRILLIANT!!! :twilightsmile:

That really depends on the country we're talking about and the formulation of the law.

In some countries it's still formulated because of religious bias or explained by the genetical problems that can occur with the offsprings. Then it's mostly just genetical relatives. However both explanations can't hold up human rights legislation, since both can't be used as a legitimate reason to restrict the freedom of an individual. After all, people with genetic disorders are also still allowed to reproduce.

In other countries the ban of incest is explained by moral standards of the society and the protection of the family unit (still a religious influence). Here the ban of incest it's mostly explained with that incestuous relationships are a huge strain on the other family members and therefore split up the family. This devalues the importance of families in the country and will lower overall morality of the society. Also bullshit if you ask me, but no even the European Court of Justice hast the guts to at least look at the matter despite open cases. Anyway. With this explanation it doesn't matter if adopted or not, it's forbidden.

I'm gonna stick around for this story. :eeyup:

those are some small fucking heads

How do you scrape off a bruise? I mean, you can scrape off scabs or bandaids or your skin. But since a bruise is basically blood that has pooled under the skin, I don't think you can scrape out a bruise without just cutting a huge gash into your skin.

>>3557465

Maybe he plays an important role later on?

Wow, this is an extremely well done story. I'm really enjoying this!:pinkiehappy:

"Welcome home, Scootaloo Apple."

Ok i genuinely got misty eyes there.

>>3558024

As they aren't related it's totally okay.

I really like it. I don't another way to put.

>>3558550

Think of bruises in terms of apples instead of skin. :raritywink:

This story is so awesome.

Man, this is so sad I told myself I wasn't going to cry :raritydespair: I can't do it! :raritycry: This story is just so sad! Bravo good sir, Bravo :raritydespair:

awesome DT  finaly got wut she deserved

>>3559874>>3560190>>3560190>>3560300

Keep signal boosting guys! Keep the hits rolling in!

And thanks for commenting! :D

>>3560284 Yup. She said things no filly at her age should be saying, and she crossed the line. :trixieshiftleft:

YES! YEEEEEEEES!

IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Well damn. Things are definitely heating up now.

“So you like living on a mud-filled, yucky farm with stupid earth ponies.

Did she forget she's an earth pony as well?

Plus Big Mac is the best brother ever, sorry Shining but he's got you beat.

>>3560499 No one has ever accused Diamond Tiara of excessive self awareness.

Diamond Tiara is channeling her inner Draco Malfoy I see. :O

I think that people tend to go a bit overboard with Diamond's evilness sometimes. But from what we've seen so far, she seems far from stupid, so I can't see her making those kind of remarks in the middle of a classroom.

Nevertheless, still curious where you will go next with this.

I've read a lot of scootadoption stories in my time on FIMfiction. This is in the top five, if not the best one, I've read.
