    On my activity...

    ...Or rather, the lack of it.

    I know I said that I'd get to writing one of my bigger projects this year, and It will happen.

    Just don't be surprised if it takes a while.

    Basically, what's happened is that I am now in my final year of university, and I have a large project to complete this year, and that's eating all of my spare time. You may see a few updates from time to time if I get a weekend free here and there, but on the whole, I'm going to be pretty busy. I'll try and get something out over the university breaks, but I really wouldn't hold your breath for anything.

    I'll still try and keep Ponywatching updating semi-regularly, but anything more than that is going to be difficult.

    Just throwing this out there...

    For all of you who follow my account here, or who are just generally interested in the stuff I write, I have a problem: I can't decide which of my longer fics I should work on next. I'll still be doing the thirty minute things whenever I can, because I like doing those, but I do want to get onto a longer-form story, possibly a multi-chapter one.

    However, I have a problem with this. I have too many ideas, and I have learnt that I need to commit to one idea at a time, or else it's going to be bad.

    So, send me a message, or whatever you want to let me know which one of the following ideas you would like to see me concentrate on.

    1: Friendship.exe (pronounced Friendship dot ee ecks ee) - A dystopic future cyberpunk pony tale, starring Trixie. Multi-chapter.

    2: Working Holiday- after the 200th Summer Sun Celebration since her sister's banishment, Celestia goes on holiday for a year, but not where you think. One-shot

    3: Just Friends, Darn It! - in which Vinyl Scratch and Octavia try to convince the rest of Equestria they aren't in love. It goes about as well as you expect. Multi-chapter.

    4: The Road To Hell - They say the road to hell is paved with the best of intentions. For Rainbow Dash, going into hell is the only way to save her friends. Only time will tell if they escape unchanged. One-shot.

    Now, at some point, all of these will be written, and for some of them, large parts of them already are. This is just to find out if there's a particular one that all of you guys really want to see first.

    So yeah. You can fire me off a message, reply to this or whatever if there's one of these ideas you really want to see me do.

    ThunderTempest, signing off.

    New Story!

    So, I would imagine some of you wonderful people out there who watch me have thought 'You know, ThunderTempest is kind of alright, but when is he going to stop doing 30-minute shorts, and actually do a story?'

    Have no fear, then, because that first story is here!

    It's called Bad Moon Rising.

    It was largely written on a whim, in a total of five days from initial conception to final edit and publish. Oh yeah, and it's also been entered into Equestria Daily's Batpony Writeoff. Honestly, I'm not actually expecting it to make it even to the top ten. But I thought 'what the hay', and just did it anyway.

    Hope you enjoy!

Twilight Sparkle and Trixie get into an argument about everything.

They also go on an adventure, fight monsters and save Equestria, but, you know, that's just a side point.

Has a TV Tropes mention: under Fan Fic. WHAT. EXPLODING WITH JOY NOW.

>>3907682  i hop dis gets featured. is gud.

Heh, the second story prompt with these two. They make such a good team.

Silly but enjoyable, with both contributing to the overall "crusade" to bring down the baddie. Neither overshadowed the other (though I'm sure Trixie would argue the point).

Good work!

#6 · 36w, 6d ago · · ·

>>3908334 Thanks for the kind words!

I'm glad that I seem to have gotten the balance between the two down.

Trixie and Twilight arguments seem to write themselves, and they do make a good team, though both of them would deny it.

This was a hilarious read from start to finish. I absolutely loved it. Both characters remained pretty well within their proper characterization, and they kept up their bickering and sniping without really giving any ground. I could easily see them keep doing stuff like this simply for fun (let's face it, Twilight relishes in having somepony to snark at without having to hold back), and Trixie would definitely want to become an alicorn solely to keep their rivalry on an even keel.

Vitriolic Best Friends, anyone?

#8 · 36w, 5d ago · · ·

>>3912007 That was what I was going for with this: that Twilight and Trixie have this weird rivalry/friendship thing going on that only they really get. I completely forgot about that trope, though. :pinkiesmile: If I get a mention on the relevant TVTropes page, I will explode with joy.

I'm glad you enjoyed this story!

#9 · 36w, 5d ago · · ·

>>3912270 I hope you meant that figuratively, because...

It's funny, really, because I've thought the same thing; in one of my current projects, Twilight and her friends end up depowered while Trixie (independently) has trained herself in the hopes of matching her. Trixie then gets upset that her rival has fallen behind and demands that Twilight regains her strength so they can have a proper rivalry. Twilight gets all mopey because she thought they were friends... until Pinkie points out that for crazy ponies like Trixie, rivalry is friendship.

>>3912423 WHAT. WHAT.:pinkiegasp::derpyderp1:

*explodes*

A most excellent story with some of the best banter I've ever read! Kudos!  :pinkiehappy:  :twilightsmile:

And hey wasn't "Lord Umbra" the main villain from Mighty Orbots?

ps- congrats on the tv tropes mention! hopefully you don't explode and then explode again! :pinkiegasp:  I've heard that can happen...

#12 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

>>4059262 I'm glad you liked it!:pinkiehappy:

To be honest, I just made up the most stereotypical villain name I could think of. I have no idea if it's from anything else.

#13 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

It was an obscure cartoon from the '80s. Uh-oh I think I may have just dated myself :facehoof:

#14 · 31w, 5d ago · · ·

Was looking for hilarious Trixie/Twilight banter, got all that and a comedic adventure.

I love it. :pinkiehappy: :yay: :moustache: :pinkiehappy:

>>4085176 I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

The Snarky Adventures of Twilight and Trixie, that was fantastic. I would happily read more about them in this style.

I'll have to take a look at your other stories too.
