    Oh hey

    I finished a draft of a chapter for a thing.

    Guess setting a timer for twenty-five minutes and just writing through it really works. I did it yesterday, and I did it today.

    Well, that feels bad

    It's been nearly half a year since I updated The Book of Friendship.

    Something is wrong with my writing work ethic.

    Chapter Draft Completed

    So, after a year, I finally finished a draft of a chapter in a story. Here's a little preview.

    “So,” asked Boss. “We have a deal?”

    Patch turned around and leaned back. “You’re not a lesbian, are you?” she asked, her eye narrowing.

    Boss balked. “Excuse me?” she asked.

    “Well, are you?” asked Patch.

    “Uh…” Boss said. “No…”

    “Hmm...” said Patch, taking another drink.

    Boss opened her mouth to say something when another voice piped up next to them.

    “Did I hear something about not being lesbians?”

    Boss recognized the voice… but from where? She looked next to her and saw a short earth pony in a white bowler hat. Boss realized at a glance that he wasn’t just really short; he was a colt.

    “Well?” he asked again.

    “Hey, fuck off,” said Patch. The pistol by her floated just an inch off of the counter.

    “Hey, hey…” said the colt, backing up a little. “I was just asking the young mare here,” he said, gesturing to Boss and smiling genially.

    “Uhh…” Boss looked at both of them. “Did I miss something?”

    Hope that's promising. It'll just be needing the usual proofreads.

    What I Wrote Today

    “Oh, dear,” said Frederic. “It’s worse than I thought. I guess it’s time for me to get out The Egg Timer again.”

    “The what?” asked Octavia.

    “It’s a little piano exercise I’ve devised,” said Frederic. “I set an egg in a pot of water on the stove, and I play the piece. It’s an extremely complicated and difficult one, or so I’m told by a fellow pianist. After I’m done with the piece, I see how the egg is. If it’s soft-boiled, then I can be confident that I performing acceptably. If it’s medium-boiled, then I understand I have to add another hour or two to my practice routine.”

    “And then what happens if the egg is hard-boiled?”

    Frederic’s face turned to the gravest expression of shock. “Well, then,” said he, “should it come to that, I must lock the doors and close the windows, and confine myself to a full, solid day of strenuous piano exercise.”

Pony magic works in funny ways. Unicorns all have magic they can control. Earth ponies and pegasi have innate magic that connects them to the earth and the sky. And then there are more unusual cases. Pinkie Pie's supernatural senses, for example. And then there's Braeburn, who seems to have a rather unusual effect on other stallions...

#8 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Loving it.

#9 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I just wanted to stop in to say that when I saw this on the front page, before seeing who the author was (I don't read your fics but I know enough about them to respect) I completely misread the title as "AAAAAAAAAAAAAryannation".

Also everyone might be gay for Braeburn, but Braeburn makes best MC Canadian Stereotype.

#10 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

oh god i've been waiting for this so long....finarry!

#11 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

#14 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

...

I don't get it.

I just find him annoying.

#15 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

...

i'm not sure what to do of this fic...

I'll follow it for the time being, I guess. Seems... interesting, at least.

#16 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Yay! This story has Braeburn!

And I can't wait to see what happens next.

#17 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Eep. Cannot wait to see where this goes. That Art pony is gunna enjoy Braeburns AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnatamoy. :rainbowwild:

#18 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

So, Braeburn has an aura of gayification? This is gonna be good.

#19 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

This is gonna be so awesome! :rainbowkiss:

Also:

“Apples, apples, everywhere, and all of ‘em ta eat,”

Reference to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner or am I reading too much into it?

#20 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I read the first chapter.

...

I suppose I'm going to have to read the rest now, aren't I?

Oh well.

:pinkiehappy:

#21 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I hate you so much.

Go die.

#22 · 132w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Tracking.

This is win sauce.

#24 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This is brilliant :yay:

#25 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>434911

Yeah. Though admittedly it's one of those stock quotations that people reference without even knowing what it's from. I mean, I've never read the poem in its entirety.

#26 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Hillarious, keep going!

#27 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Well Breaburns going to be having the whole populous of Ponyville after him and his sexy, sexy ass...

*staring at Braeburns flank*

#28 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Fan. TASTIC. :pinkiehappy:

#29 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>436455

Whats so good about Breaburn?

#30 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Wait can gay ponies be affected by Braeburn... I will need to test this out.

#31 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I am beyond excited. :rainbowwild:

#32 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

So Braeburn's like Abel, but without the caustic remarks and shapeshifting powers?

(brownie points to whoever gets of who I'm talking about)

#33 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>438855

Bitch, everybody is gay for Breaburn!

#34 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>438957

Not me.

He talks too fast and I can't understand his accent.

#35 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>438960

Well fuck you to.

:flutterrage:

(J/K)

#36 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>438962

"(J/K)"

....

Is that meant to be jerk, because if not, I've got nothing.

Here's somthing funny.

#37 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

It's not magic that's making the ponies go gay for Braeburn.

If magic were involved then that would just be unnessecary.

>>438957

And yes, you are right.

>>438855

As for you... how could you not like Braeburn?

#38 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439094

He talks too fast, I can't understand his accent, and he's an idiot.

Ponies try to tell him about what happened on the train, he ignore them and sprouts crap about his town.

#39 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439114

:twilightangry2:

He was merely showing hospitality.

Talking too fast...hmm... then you must not like Pinkie Pie either.

Applejack has the same accent as him.

#40 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439121

Your right I don't like normal pinkie.

I don't trust anyone that smiles all the time, they are hidding something.

And I can't understand Applejack ethier, I had to found a southern dictionary in order to understand what she was saying.

#41 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439126

:facehoof:

So happiness is a bad thing?

And I'm just going to ignore what you said about Pinkie and Aj.

#42 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439130

It's fine to smile, but no-one can be happy all the time.

So if they always smile, then they are faking it.

To trick you or to trick themselfs.

And what was wrong with what I said about Pinkie and AJ?

#43 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This makes me smile.

#44 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439134

Okay House, people can be happy all the time.

It's called being optomistic.

It's a good thing the world isn't filled with a bunch of pessemists like you.

And yes, what you said about them was wrong.

#45 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439142

How was it wrong?

Pinkie is always hyper, which isn't a good thing in a work place.

AJ's accent, it's probally becasue I'm british, I can't understand southern yanks at all.

And Optomists are dissapionted alot.

If you always think the best, you'll be disappointed a lot.

If you think the worst will happen, most things will better than you expected.

#46 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439149

Fail.

Those who are optomistic always look on the bright side and keep trying.

People who are pesemistic always look on the bad side of things and are never happy because of that.

And hyperness is very good for a work place if you can focus that energy into one task.

#47 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439166

Not really.

If you think you're going to get the best, you will be dissapionted.

If you think you're going yo get the worse, anything above the worse will cheer you up.

And for Pinkie, lets face it, she harrasses ponies (Cranky doodle, Twilight when she arrived), is hyper all the time fo no reason, is slightly insane and has been know that talk to inamtiate objects.

Not the best worker.

I liked her better when she was Pinkamena.

#48 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439177

Those who are optomistic don't just think the best; they try their hardest to make the best happen.

Those who are pesemistic always think the worst and try to find some way to make any experience, even ones that aren't bad, seem awful.

#49 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439183

Then what am I?

I see the worst and yet also try to make the best happen.

And this still doesn't explain why people love Braeburn.

#50 · 132w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>439190

If you were paying attention to what I said then you would know what you are.

And you just have to like Braeburn, it's a requirement of being alive.
