    What my fiction folder is telling me.

    Hello, faithful watchers. ROB here, you know, "The MLD Guy", the one who doesn't ever seem to keep any signs of steady progression when writing? I've been doing some serious thinking the last couple months, about my stories, both published and not published. I used to believe that I needed to stick to a regimen, keep focused on only a couple fics to update while other stuff just sits around and gets worked on on the side lines.

    Well, a couple nights ago, while I was listening to some of my Frankie Laine 78's and drinking some bourbon, I got really thinking about it. What, exactly, am I doing? You all know, as much as I do, that I start something and then I just stop. Disappear for however long, maybe throw a blog post around about nothing important, or give you unfulfilled promises of "the next chapter is coming soon!"

    What a load of horse shit I am.

    Many of my friends in various skype group chats have seen some of my unpublished works, or me spawning new ideas for more fics. It's a constant cycle of "Start this one, stop, go to another one, stop, back to the last one, stop, new one, stop, etc etc..." I just, for the life of me, cannot just stick to focusing on a single fic for more than two days.

    I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Is it from my depression? Do I resent that MLD is probably gonna be my one hit wonder that'll haunt me forever? Or am I just coming up with excuses, and all excuses are, are excuses.

    So what, then, does that leave me with? Do I just throw in the towel, give up, slink away and just let everyone remember me for something that doesn't really matter in real life? Don't get me wrong, I know MLD has been great for some people, but when I stack it up with what is really going on in my life, it doesn't mean the shit on my shoes. And I just mowed our dog yard, so there's a lot of it. Or do I keep pushing on?

    There are so many things going on in my life anymore, things that have been going on since before My Little Dashie, that have been getting worse and worse with time. Soon, I don't know how soon, but soon one thing is going to happen in my life. This one thing is going to start an avalanche, and I'm going to be at the bottom of that mountain with a bottle of bourbon in one hand, and a garden trowel to dig myself out with in the other.

    So, I've made a decision. No no, before you think the worst thing that I'm going to give up and leave, that's not happening... yet.

    But what I have decided is it's been enough. Enough with piddle fucking around, leaving fics unfinished. So many potential fics rotting in folders, never getting the air they so desperately need. No more fussing over "Gee, should I re-do this" or "gosh, I'm not sure if that's right. Maybe I'll sit on it and think about it."

    No. More.

    I'm gathering up all my fics, some I'll have a few friends breeze through for grammar checks and what not. But once they're clear, I'm gonna start posting these sons of a bitches. I'm sick of leaving all  this potential of inspiration and creativity to lie around and rot on my computer. I lost countless fics when my first laptop died over a year ago, so I only got a handful of ones that I managed to save on an external drive, plus more that I've begun since I got this newer laptop six months ago.

    Once more, I'm gonna start digging into these fics I currently have up, screw "editing them for continuity", and gonna get goin' on the next chapters cause enough has been enough. I'm done screwing around, lying, putting on a fake smile as I tell everyone that it's going alright. It's not fuckin' goin' alright. I feel like shit. Life is all gonna come crashing down on my head sooner or later, so I don't wanna go down without a fight.

    I'm not gonna promise you a when, but I will promise that come hell or high water you're gonna soon have a fic-splosion from my account. Mostly all single chapter fics still works in progress, but fuck it, I'm sick of these things just sittin' around. I'm hoping, maybe, with all my cards on the table, it'll provoke me to actually work on stuff. And even if I can't find people to help with edits, or grammar checks, fuck it! I've seen fics that look like the authors poured alphabet soup on their keyboards and called it stories and they STILL PASSED. I'm sure my crap can't be worse than that.

    The shit winds are a howling, so before we're all covered in the shitagedon that this fandom is slowly becoming, I wanna know that I did my best to write horse words, and show that maybe, just maybe... I'm not a lost cause.

    Another amazing fic, finally finished!

    No, none of mine sadly.

    One of my good friends, Patchwork Poltergeist has finally wrapped a pretty bow on one of my favorite fics I've been watching for some time now. The Last Human, which if you hadn't guessed it is a crossover of "The Last Unicorn". She just finished it, so if you haven't seen it before then go read it!

    Shameless promotion of a friend's fic because oh man is it totally awesome you should totally go over there and read it cause of the pure totally awesomenessity explodinationg from it's core of infinity and beyond.

    Splinterwood

    What the title said.

    edit: fixed the url so you lazy bastards don't strain a pinkie muscle using the copy/paste method AND I used the wrong word in the title so no longer am I shamed but I am shameless. I also might be drunk but I don't care so you all just go about your whatever and do... whatever. I'm gonna just sit here with my beer and records.

    TAKE ME AWAY, KING OF SWING!

    Equestria Daily's Summer Outside Insite Fanfiction Contest thingie

    So, I guess I hadn't thought about making a blog post that I was doing a fic for that.

    Oops.

    Welp, it's there, Bloomberg. I've read a few others, and I think I'm the only person doing a non-living creature. So that's kinda neat.

    Good luck to anyone else competing!

When your life is as dull a gray as the world that surrounds you, the mundanities can make it all seem meaningless. Sometimes all we need is a little color -- or six -- to reintroduce us to what truly makes life worth living.

quite well written, if i do say so myself

#6 · 156w, 23h ago · 9 · 5 ·

I have read this so many times and shed manly tears every time.  This has to be one of, if not the, saddest fics in the fandom.  It is a wonderful premise and very well executed.  My only regret is that really good sad fics make me feel melancholy for a time afterward proportional to how much it affected me.  This made it a week.  And then another one after this song,

Just saying.  Good job man, good job.  I have to go wipe something out of my eyes now.  :pinkiesad2:

:derpytongue2: I realize this is a little old, but someone told me to throw this up on here. Just let me know what you think of it, thanks!

I'm crying, and it's gone far beyond manly tears. :fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

MANY TEARS ALL OVER EVERYTHING. :fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritycry:

beautiful story, i knew by the first linebreak that i'd probably be in tears by the bottom of the page, i was not dissappointed. a masterpiece imho

#13 · 156w, 22h ago · 5 · 2 ·

OH GOD NOT AGAIN!

I need to go watch some good comedy to get the sad out of my system.

#14 · 156w, 22h ago · 3 · 2 ·

Read on EQ, Honestly made me tear up hard man, I can't even look at the picture without watering up a lil. DAMN YOU AND YOUR ADORABLY SAD PONY STORIES!! :applecry:

#15 · 156w, 22h ago · 3 · 2 ·

Pierced through my icy heart like a drill that pierces the heavens.:fluttercry:

One of the first MLP Sadfics I ever read and it is currently the best after reading many more after it.

#16 · 156w, 22h ago · 4 · 3 ·

Tears came to my eyes as I read this story. It shows the truth of this world, because no matter how good something is, all good things must come to an end.

I sincerely thank you for this story, and hope for more stories in the future

#17 · 156w, 22h ago · 2 · 1 ·

Did this story finally get posted here? Well, now I have a way to favorite it I guess!

A condensed review I gave this earlier:

So proud of this Author (and the editor) and this fandom.

Tears of Pure Happiness.

Love & Tolerate. All my stars.

#18 · 156w, 22h ago · 4 · 1 ·

The only pony fic I've seen so far that kind of ... acknowledges a world outside of MLP, and explores what the show actually means to us in terms of affecting us as real people. Bravo, bravo. I'll vouch for this as best ever. Well done. :pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2:

Did you write MLD or do you have permission from the author to post it here?

#20 · 156w, 21h ago · 7 · 1 ·

>>18329

I am the author, hence the same name. Someone told me about this site, so I went ahead and made a profile so no one would impersonate me (like who would wanna anyway :applejackconfused:) and since it's all about FiM fan fiction, I figured it wouldn't hurt to throw it up here (more sites it's on the better, no?).

#21 · 156w, 21h ago · 1 · ·

I am reeeeealy afraid to read this.

the feel may be too strong.

#22 · 156w, 21h ago · 1 · 1 ·

Why do I like stories that make me sad? Why?

In any case, this is pretty much the only humans and ponies story that I like. Doesn't deal with the meeting of two species, just the feelings of a father and his daughter. Brilliant writing and a truly moving ending make this a wonderful story. Thank you for writing this.

#23 · 156w, 21h ago · 2 · 1 ·

This is the most heart-wrenching story I have ever read... :fluttercry:

I didn't read it here, but read it on Google Docs a few weeks ago... :applecry:

After I did finish it, the next few hours were filled with me remembering the story, crying more... :fluttercry:

I'm...trying to hold onto the tears just writing this comment... :applecry:

All I must say is that you are a jerk for killing me on the inside, but at the same time, a wonderful person for writing this amazing story. :heart:

#24 · 156w, 21h ago · 2 · 1 ·

This will always be one of my favorites. Instant 5

#25 · 156w, 21h ago · 2 · 1 ·

I consider myself to be a brony of simplicity, one that doesn't believe in typing with caplocks to get a point across.  Sadly, I'm afraid this story has left me with no choice.

THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH D'AWWS AND TEARS IN MY BODY TO DESCRIBE HOW I FEEL AT THE MOMENT! :fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

#26 · 156w, 20h ago · · ·

there is no way of knowing that this never happened.

that's creepy.

#27 · 156w, 20h ago · 1 · ·

Glad to see you found FimFiction Rob. I remember the first time I read this story.

Manly tears were shed. :fluttercry:

#28 · 156w, 20h ago · 2 · 2 ·

Thanks everyone so far for commenting, and I figured most of you had already read this story but I I realized that DA doesn't really allow comments unless you have an account, and I don't care for how Gdocs comment system works so I figured I'd throw it up here for the rest of you who couldn't comment on those. Seeing as this is a strong MLP site, I figured more of you would have an account. If you have any questions or simply wanna tell me your thoughts, I'll respond to you when I can. Again, thanks for reading, and sorry if I made you all cry again :applejackunsure:

#29 · 156w, 20h ago · · 1 ·

Sweet merry Christmas:twilightoops:

Finally made it over to this fanfic site. One of my favorites, just thinking about brings a manly tear to my eye.:fluttercry:

#30 · 156w, 20h ago · 1 · 1 ·

First written story to make me cry. BUT they were manly tears.

#31 · 156w, 20h ago · 1 · 1 ·

All my stars are belong to this.:fluttercry:

#32 · 156w, 20h ago · · 1 ·

*sigh* I love this story. Sad, but awesome.

#33 · 156w, 20h ago · 1 · ·

I remember reading this like weeks ago, one of the best stories I've read

#34 · 156w, 19h ago · 1 · ·

this is the only fic that made me cry. And I've read past sins too

#36 · 156w, 19h ago · · ·

As I said before on your DA profile, an incredible, moving and utterly beautiful story :twilightsmile:

#37 · 156w, 19h ago · · ·

I don't normally comment on things, however I made an exception this time.

Seriously, I cried. Quite the amazing story, glad I read it.

#38 · 156w, 19h ago · · ·

My Little Dashie is the only fan fiction that made me cry. :fluttercry: This fic is life changing! I congratulate who ever made this! :raritycry:

#39 · 156w, 19h ago · · ·

Also ironic that I just read (well, listened to) this fic yesterday by Azekahh, and even he cried!

#40 · 156w, 18h ago · · ·

:fluttercry:

Nothing else needs be said.

Well-written.  A different kind of relationship than we see in most fanfiction.  Well done.

#41 · 156w, 17h ago · · ·

Con-confound these *sniff* ponies!*hic* They*sniffle* they d-drive me... *sniff* drive me to such... such...*sniff* manly tears!:fluttercry:

#42 · 156w, 17h ago · · ·

It takes a lot to make me cry these days... and I've often wished I could cry more. This amazing story made me want to cry and sob rivers of tears, however, I only managed two. I like to think I managed to give one for the both of them.:fluttercry:

why
#43 · 156w, 16h ago · · ·

Great. Just great.

#44 · 156w, 15h ago · · ·

Originally saw this on dA via a link from ED a while back. As I said then, this is easily one of THE BEST fanfics out there on the entire internet. It's truly a work of art. If I can convince someone to read only one fanfic in their entire lives, it would probably have to be this one.

#45 · 156w, 15h ago · · ·

I've read this story the first time on Google Doc. I listened to Azekahh's reading of it. and I teared for the first part. Then it got heavy. :applecry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2: but i LOVE this Story

#46 · 156w, 15h ago · · ·

I knew most of the basic plot points which would happen before I even started to read this. The idea is not new... but the execution of it was really really good. I mean, I am in tears and wordless, so it did what it was meant to do. (And that even though I have heard this exact plot structure so often that I know it by heart)

Great work my good pony.(To keep gender out of it)

Now if only it did not make me tear up so much.. but I guess it would not have the same impact.

#47 · 156w, 15h ago · · ·

I find it hard to get emotional over books but after this i was lying on my bed going through memories of my childhood while listening to the saddest fucking music i could think of and crying my eyes out

that is what this has driven me to

#48 · 156w, 15h ago · · ·

this is beyond a fan fiction, this is literature :fluttershysad:

#49 · 156w, 14h ago · · ·

This made me cry so hard!
