    Anniversary Time Once Again

    Hello everyone.  It’s me again, GWFan the Softcore Brony (obviously) and as the title says, its anniversary time again!  Whoo hoo!  I now celebrate my third year anniversary as a Brony and my second year anniversary as a Let’s Player!  

    So obviously, Let’s Playing has kind of taken over the time I used to spend writing fanfiction.  I haven’t given up on writing Spiral, Cheer One More Time, or my weird little Celebrity Deathmatch crossover, but I have since decided to officially cancel Night of Harvest.  My ultimate idea for it, though nice and creepy in its own right as I had wanted, doesn’t pan out well to an ending especially considering all that has changed in the show regarding Princess Twilight and what have you.  I know that may not seem like it has any real baring on this particular story as it simply could be set earlier but the ending is still complicated to make work either way, plus I think I’ll use the plot somewhere else not pony related since I like to write other stuff from time to time too.

    As far as Let’s Playing news goes, I have planned to start Super Mario RPG once I finish EquestriaBound and then follow that up with the yet to be released full version of War of Harmony.

    I apologize to anyone who was enjoying my fanfiction since I haven’t updated in nearly a year and it looks like I probably won’t update again anytime soon, but I still might and frankly I still want to finish the three listed up there or in the least the Celebrity Deathmatch one since that has garnered some surprising attention by those who gave it a shot expecting something different.

    Have a good day everyone.  Thanks for reading.  Thanks for watching my videos if you in fact do that.  Thank you all for being a Brony.  Arrivederci.

    And then I updated a story

    Wow, it actually happened.  I put up a new chapter of Spiral: the Strangeness of Ponyville.  For the few of you who read the previous two chapters just note that slight changes were made to make Twilight into Princess Twilight.  Truthfully there was very little to change and most of it can be noted in the first scene of chapter 1.  Also, I updated the story to include a comedy tag since it does technically have a lot of that when everything is not being serious.  Hopefully this third chapter doesn’t feel rushed.  Also I wonder what you will think of how I’m writing Scootaloo?  Thanks for reading and especially for being patient folks.

    Will I ever update a story again?

    Hello everyone.  It’s been four months since my last blog update and is closing in on a year since I made an update to anything that wasn’t the 550 Word Challenge (thank you Writers Group for at least keeping me a little active.)  It’s not exactly that I’ve become completely lazy in regards to my fic writing but more so that my attention has been focused elsewhere.  Since I started Let’s Playing, I’ve spent a lot of time researching, taking notes, and practicing various games because I have an obsessive desire to play them to the best of my abilities with as much knowledge as possible.  As a result, my time for writing has suffered substantially.  I didn’t even participate in this year’s National Pony Writing Month, which disappoints me to no end.

    At this point, I want to formally announce the official cancellation of one of my fics, The Manly Man Way, as I have no desire to return to that fic.  Some of you may remember long ago when I wrote an apology letter for how bad that fic was and still is, as I haven’t changed a thing.  It was an amusing idea at the time but it no longer seems that way even though I do have other parts of that fic written which will now never see the light of day unless I do a blog showing my notes and what have you on it I suppose.

    This still leaves me with four unfinished fics.  One of those fics is Night of Harvest, which I wanted to finish for Halloween this year but obviously didn’t.  Truth be told, I’ve changed my mind on the ending to that fic and currently don’t have one.  Without the ending, the rest of the story just seems like a random occurrence and that wouldn’t do at all.  I’m debating canceling that as a result since I’ve lost sight of the ending but as of this time, it still remains in hiatus status.

    My other three fics, I absolutely want to finish.  I really should work on Cheer One More Time as it at least has a foothold in EQD and I promised to finish that one nearly two years ago now.  Unfortunately, I’m not entirely sure on a lot of the middle portions of it, even though I know where I want it to go ultimately.  

    Spiral would be a more obvious choice to work on and finish as I have a lot of that written already.  I currently have 18,081 words posted but I have a total of 56,507 words written for that story as a whole already.  I have at least a small or large portion of every chapter in the story written including the ending.  The story currently spans 19 chapters but only the two I’ve posted are fully complete.  However, I do want to do a slight rewrite here to change Twilight to Princess Twilight, since that wouldn’t be very difficult to implement (the story does take place ten years in the future).  

    The last story is another one I really want to get back to, my Celebrity Deathmatch crossover, which has surprisingly been encouraged to be finished by more than one person over on my account.  That one I already know exactly what I want to happen and exactly how many chapters (9, which just makes 6 more I need to finish).  

    Overall, I don’t know or rather can’t promise that I’ll ultimately do anything, though it would kill me to cancel what I have left.  I should say I can’t guarantee how soon I’ll work on them but I must.  If I don’t by next month you have my permission to send messages to me everyday telling me I should be working on writing too, not just Let’s Plays.

    Thank you all for reading, commenting, watching, and favoriting.  I always appreciate it even if I don’t send a message saying so.

    My Anniversaries and What Not

       So today I celebrate my two year anniversary as a Brony and my one year anniversary as a Let’s Player.  I can’t believe its already been that long.  Things are running pretty smoothly except for my Fanfiction.  I’m still writing very, very slowly and although I hoped to get a new chapter of Cheer One More Time out at least once a month, I have barely touched it since releasing.  Sorry about that readers.  Hopefully I’ll get some time in at some point, but I can’t promise you’ll see a new chapter in the next week or anything.

    In other news I’ve seen Equestria Girls and personally enjoyed it.  I can’t speak for everyone of course, but I liked it and thought it was good so that’s my opinion at least.  

    Anyway, my let’s Plays are moving smoothly although this week was slow uploading for me, I’ll hopefully be back on track soon.  School (yes, during the summer still; technical schools barely give you time off it seems) and work have me busy too, so finding time around that is an interesting dance.

    Anyway, thank you all for reading and thank you all for watching.  It suddenly came to my attention the other day that some folks thank the readers that favorite their stories personally, but it never occurred to me to do that.  Sorry if anyone felt like I was not being grateful.  It just never occurred to me before.  So I would like to give a thank you all who favorite my fics and thank you all in the future who may still favorite them as well.  Even if I don’t give you a direct thanks, I always feel thankful when someone favorites or watches so again, thanks.

    Cheer On Sequal Finally Happened!

        I finally decided to stop procrastinating and write that sequal that I should have started a year ago.  Though I might be a little slow to upload new chapters, hopefully it won't be as slow as it took get this fic up.  In the least I'm hoping for once a month, but then I said that about getting the first chapter up back in January.  My bad.

        As for some of my other stories that have been in sleep mode for almost six months, I still plan to continue them eventually.  Night of Harvest was meant to be a Halloween themed fic started and finished in October, but I was sidetracked by my focus on my Let's Play series, so at this point I'm hoping to finish it again for next October.  Again, we'll see.

        Spiral: The Strangeness of Ponyville, has been an interesting run for me and my reason for slowing down surprisingly does not entirely have to do with me being lazy.  The fic takes place ten years in the future, but I started writing it before the Revelation of Princess Twilight, and thus she's not an Alicorn in the story.  Even in a crossover fic like that one, I always try to keep things as show accurate as possible while still retaining some of my own ideas that are decidedly not show accurate.  For Spiral, I'm trying to decide if I should continue from where I am or go back and adjust what I have already written to account for Princess Twilight.  It wouldn't be too change a few major details and events around too reflect our newish Twilacorn, but it would still take at least a little replanning on my part, since I don't know exactly how the show is going to continue with Princess Twilight, or rather what direction they are going to take the show from this point.  Being a Princess, does that mean she has to live in Canterlot or can she stay in Ponyville?  Season 4, I need you for clarification!

        And for the last fic, the crazy Celebrity Deathmatch crossover, which has been surprisingly more popular than I was expecting, that one I could probably continue rather easily since I already know most of what I want to happen.  I'm probably going to try to focus on Cheer One More Time though, since it has been so long coming.

        Anyway, thanks for reading, I always appreciate the comments on my fics and I'll try not to procrastinate on my fics as much as I have in the last year and a half.

My Little Halloween Special!

After hearing a rumor about a ghost town and a very special game of tag, Twist and several other kids disappear.  The Cutie Mark Crusaders follow the rumor to rescue them, but discover that some rumors may be real.

Iwatch Onigokko on adultswim once, VERY SCARY series.

  :rainbowderp: I actually didn't know there was an Onigokko show on adultswim.  Whatever that actually is, this is based on something different.

This is a little scary and very well-written. Also, I won't be too disappointed if a certain pair of fillies don't make it out...

Oh yes. Nothing gets me more excited than the death and torture of marshmallow ponies and the ruination of a whole universe based on some game that is meant to be a nihilist's masturbatory fantasy. Isn't it all so beautiful?

So well written. So well crafted. So worthy of being spit on for it's ugliness.

:derpytongue2:  that was awesome scary story, I love it. I want it to continue with new players he he:pinkiecrazy:

#11 · 159w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

:rainbowlaugh: Ha ha ha.  Wow!  You actually want more?  Based on these comments so far, I'm kind of getting the feeling that most readers aren't reading into the metaphorical ending. :derpytongue2:

Even if I did write more, it would still pretty much be the same situation.  Then again, the ability to fly and use magic would come into play... :rainbowderp:  

Hmm... I really didn't plan on continuing this particular project (since it is complete) nor did I plan on writing a sequal.  I don't know, if responses are really this positive, I may have to do another horror fic next Halloween.  Different subject matter though.  :twistnerd:  By the way, I actually don't hate Twist.  It was just convienient for the plot.:scootangel:

#12 · 159w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

I'm scared for this fic before reading... I know how that anime movie went... So it can't end well. *reads anyway.*

#15 · 159w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

I was a bit nervous about reading this after I read the preview on EQD and realized it was based on Kakurenbo. I still remember watching the movie as a kid and having it scare me shitless. Thanks for making a great crossover fic that takes the original and adds a wonderful twist to it.

To be honest, I didn't get why you named it Bronyville until the ending. Instead of human batteries, the ponies are being used to fuel brony fandom, genius! I loved your choice of monsters. (The Walker reminded me of Pyramid head for some reason, go figure.) And, except for the spider demon and demon leader that I remember being in the movie, they were different from the film but just as scary.

Great work, and thank you for making me relive such a hauntingly memorable film all over again with my latest fandom.

#16 · 159w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

>>22126:pinkiehappy::raritystarry: Yes!  Absolutely.  You hit it right on the head.  And yes, the Walker was partly inspired by Pyramid Head so double points!  

#17 · 159w, 4d ago · · · Tag... ·

awesome history, i will really like a second part with the new players xD, but with Flying and Magic will be like cheating just like Discord game xD

#18 · 159w, 4d ago · · · Tag... ·


:twilightblush: Um... I didn't say I was actually going to do another part.  In fact, I get the feeling that the magic that prevents players from leaving would stop flying too somehow, and that the monsters are immune to magic or something.  Anyway, since I feel a little bad for doing this to the CMC and friends, I'm kinda sworn off horror for the moment.  This is the first horror fic I've ever written in fact.  Normally, I do comedies.

Don't hate me, but I think some of them deserved it. Whether it for their stupidity & ignorance, (sweetie belle[even though she is adorable] ,snips and snails) or just bitches,(scootaloo, diamond tiara, silver spoon). Twist deserved it for being too damn Twist.

So is that a posotive review or a negative reiview or... :rainbowhuh:

In any case, it looks like I generally acomplished what I set out to do and made a creepy story that readers found scary. :pinkiehappy:

>>26432 Hey, Sweetie Belle was against it the whole way!

@GW: You ought to write the Cube series next.  Also, was the bit mentioned in oegiap's comment the "metaphorical ending"? I got that, when I read it. It was mildly amusing... lightheartedness in a horrorfic!? :raritydespair:

That said, the first few times I read "Bronyville," I groaned and facehoofed and clawed at my eyes and tore at my hair and had to get up and walk away, only to come back, start reading, and see it again.

I'm glad there was at least a reason for that horrible, horrible name... ugh. Mostly males... Bronyville.

Then the mask came...

Wow!  THIS is a great horror fic!  :pinkiecrazy:  It was suspenseful, it was scary, and very well planned out and very well written!  Looks like the Main 6 are stuck in the game now(I don't think they will go down so easily, but I digress).  I can't wait to see what other horror fics you may have planned for the future.  :pinkiecrazy::pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss:

Well, October is pretty close and I have a big project planned that I've been working on since January.  If all goes according to plan then my next big horror type fic will be released all throughout that month.  I'm not sure it's quite as scary as Onigokko, but it certainly has the creepy feel.

:twilightblush: Well thank you very much.  You flatter me deeply.  And it is based on Kakurenbo: Hide and Seek, which is a thirty minute anime.

#32 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Tag... ·

I :facehoof:'d at the name "Bronyville", but I'll be damned if this story didn't creep me out.  You managed to capture the mood of 'Kakurenbo' very very well, and I also detected a slight 'Silent Hill' influence as well which, after reading that Pyramid Head inspired the "Walker", was apparently quite intentional.

Well done!

#33 · 110w, 5d ago · · · Rumor ·


kakurenbo, look it up on youtube.

#34 · 110w, 5d ago · · · Rumor ·

well written and it is a great remake of the show.

you make Fluttershy very happy.

As it happens, EqD is doing a horror fic contest right now, and I am going to try to right something for it, which should be up before Oct. 24th, so... there is that.  Actually Onigokko is a standard that I'm worried about living up too.  For me at least, it seems a bit difficult to top. :twilightoops:

a few things about chapter 1 so far

when i read abandoned city in the everfree forest, my first thought was story of the blanks

when i read "bronyvilly" i facepalmed

and when i got to the end of chapter 1, it started reminding me of a darker version of castle-mania

i don't even know what to say

#42 · 43w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

i am at a loss for words, i like grimdark, but i don't like horror movies, because horror movies tend to be cliche and stupid

this on the other hand is genuinely frightening, even more frightening with the fact that it's the CMC and their classmates

#43 · 43w, 5d ago · · · Tag... ·

one more thing, not having any knowledge on the source material, that hide and seek anime, has made this fanfic that much more enjoyable

#44 · 43w, 4d ago · · · Tag... ·

one more thing

the spider reminded me of Mimi from Super Paper Mario

and after watching Kakurenbo Hide and Seek, i must say, you out creeped the source material

#46 · 20w, 1d ago · · · Rumor ·


A sister town was proposed, but never got past the planning stages because nopony could agree on whether to call it Pegasisterville or Femalebronyville.

Nice touch, btw, on the lights spelling out Onigokko.

>>21817 So, that would make her a Plot Twist?

Edit: I just realized that with the Mane 6 plus Cheerilee makes it another group of seven.

#48 · 5w, 4d ago · · · Tag... ·

The game never ends... muhahahaHAHAHAHAHA!...

#49 · 1w, 4d ago · · · Tag... ·

Well, this is a well made crossover fanfic story of Kakurenbo: Hide and Seek. You really gotten the feel and theme of the anime quite well, yet at the same put your own spin on it and perhaps surpassed it in more ways then one. I can honestly say that I wouldn't mind reading a sequel to this, even through I know what's going to happen to the Mane 6 and Cheerilee. because I would like to see how they handle the situation they got themselves in and what their encounters with the demons be like.  :twilightsmile:

So good story and keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:
