Raefire is indeed gone. He passed away this summer at the age of 27. For those of you who enjoyed and commented on his stories, thank you. He loved writing them and sharing them with the community. Writing was an outlet for him to express many of the emotions he kept carefully controlled in his day-to-day life. Living with medical challenges since the day he was born, he often had to accept pain and physical limitations as part of his existence -- something other people often failed to recognize, so good was he at putting it away behind a mask of normality. He cherished every comment he received, positive or negative, and used them to improve his work. He was truly an artist, always striving for that illusive perfection, but also simply enjoying the process of creation along the way.
He lives on, not only in these stories, but also in the lives of the two people he saved through organ donation. If you are not a specified organ donor, please consider becoming one, and let your family know of your intentions. In times of medical crisis, it is often hard for people to make decisions. Knowing your wishes in advance makes it easier.
We miss him deeply every day, but hold him close in our heart and memories. As we wrote in his obituary, we ask that, each day, in his spirit and memory, please help a child, object to an injustice, stop a bully, feed a hungry person, or say an encouraging word to someone you meet.

Finally, for all of those who have been waiting, Chapter 7 of Night of the Shy (Revamp) is finally up! I decided not to slice this one into two chapters this time, so enjoy 23,233 words. I still can't fathom how the flying buck shortskirtsandexplosions can write that much in a week...Blargh...
Oh, and Golden Vision? If you read this, I hope you don't mind that I used your name for one of the orphan fillies in this story. It just...fit.
And now my mind turns away from fics for a short while. My youtube followers have been waiting about as long for the next episode in my Mel's Mind series, so that's gotta get taken care of next. Then I've got to clear my DVR of all the shows I have backed up on it...Read all the new chapters of the stories I'm following... Then back to writing fics. As I mentioned before in an earlier blog post, I had an idea for another short fic, so I'm gonna sketch that out. I'm also finalizing the changes to my outline for Revamp Chap. 8, and I've still gotta make those revisions to The Alicorn as well. And I'm STILL working on trying to find a way to continue Dimension Twist: The Cut Sequence as promised. I will not forget that story! Believe me! There's also that pesky job hunting that seems to get in the way of everything...
Anyways, folks, that's all for now. Thank you for reading and having patience!

Just over two months after I started, FINALLY Night of the Shy (Revamp) Chap. 7 is FINISHED!
I am keeping it one whole chapter - so beware, this thing will be a monster. but, just think of it as two chapters in one.
I'm gonna let it sit for a day, then proofread and format it for FimFiction. Expect to see it up soon!
Happy 4th of July! I'm gonna go celebrate by blowing shit up now!

Sorry about the creepy pic in that last blog post. Decided to have some fun with the "You've been tagged!" people.
Anyways, as mentioned in the last blog post, Night of the Shy (Revamp) Chapter 7 is coming along nicely - 7,644 words into it now, but obviously didn't hit the "end of May" mark. I feel like Valve when it comes to release dates, honestly...
After that, I'll probably work on my non-pony project, my Portal 2 Mind series "Mel's Mind." You can check that out on the youtube page listed on my profile.
When I get back to writing pony stuff, it's gonna be split between:
1) heavily revising The Alicorn - and I mean heavily revising.
2) Another tender fic idea of mine. Some drama, but not much. Dunno if it's gonna be a oneshot or not yet. We'll see.
3) Trying to find a cohesive way to extend Dimension Twist: The Cut Sequence. Yes, I haven't forgotten about this! It's just I intended it to be a straight oneshot with a purposefully cliffhanger ending (like how Farscape originally ended its final season with "To be Continued"), so finding a way to naturally extend the story a bit is proving to be a pain in the ass...But I've figured out a way to add on to stories I originally intended to be one-offs before, so it will happen eventually.
That's all for now!
Dimension Twist: The Cut Sequence
EXT. PONYVILLE - DAY
With a bright FLASH, the dimension portal opens, and SHEGO
and DRAKKEN appear on a hill above the colourful town.
Joy. What sugary land are we in now?
Oh, no - not another kid's sho-Wait!
Could it be?
Drakken walks over the hill - and sees ponies everywhere.
Yes! It's PONYVILLE!
This is not happening.
(out of nowhere)
What's not happening?
Oh! Sorry! I didn't mean to startle
you! I just got so excited when I saw
you appear, because clearly your
teleportation means you can use magic
like Twilight and the other unicorns -
but you also look like you're new here,
because I don't think I've ever seen
anypony who looks like you two before,
and I just LOVE meeting new ponies,
because that means I can throw them a
welcome party, show them around town,
help them meet new friends, and-
Hey! Pinkie! Ya' got an off switch?
(tilts her head)
Sure! What do you need turned off?
Um - Your mouth?
What? That's silly! You can't turn off
a mouth! You just close it! Or you stop
talking. Either way, there's no off
switch for a mouth. Unless you're a
machine of some kind. Are you machines?
You don't look like machines! I don't
think you're machines! Are you ponies?
I know I asked you this before, but you
didn't answer me, so I'm still curious-
(ignites her hands; aggravated)
Yo! Pinky Princess! Zip the lips or
I'll weld `em shut permanently!
There is a tense silent moment. PINKIE PIE stares, shocked.
Shego smirks. She knows she's won.
Cool! You can do other magic besides
teleporting! But I'm not a Princess!
Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are
the only princesses in all Equestria.
Drakken slides in front of Shego before she can attack.
Um, you'll have to excuse Shego. She
can be a bit...hot-headed at times.
(looks at Shego quizzically)
But her head isn't on fire.
(stands down; crosses her arms)
It might as well be.
Shego...Who's the fan of the show here?
Who knows these characters?
(puffs his chest up)
It's time for Doctor D to shine.
You just want cupcakes.
Gh - Yes, well, it has crossed my mind
that cupcakes would be an acceptable
side benefit to our presence here!
You like cupcakes?
Why, yes I do! Especially the way Mama
Lipski makes `em! Mm-Mmm! Delicious!
Ooh! Ooh! That gives me an idea for
your welcome party!
And what idea would that be?
Why, a cupcake party, of course!
Ooh! I like that idea.
Did I miss the part where someone put a
moodulator on your head, Dr. D.?
(grabs Drakken, drags him away)
C'mon. Let's go find some other pony
who can get us out of this dimension.
Wait! Where are you going?
But - Shego! Cupcakes!
EXT. FLUTTERSHY'S HOUSE - SAME
FLUTTERSHY is trying to get her bunny pal ANGEL to eat.
Angel... We talked about this before.
Angel pushes away the unfinished piece of lettuce.
One more bite?
A bright FLASH causes her to SHRIEK and dive into the hedge
behind her. Angel jumps away as another dimension portal
opens - dropping Kim and Ron onto the ground. Quite hard.
(on impact with ground)
(gets up, rubbing his butt)
You know, if I haven't mentioned it
before, KP - I would just like to state
for the record that I'm not really a
fan of inter-dimensional travel.
Kim gets up, grunting in annoyance.
(rubbing her forehead)
I'm inclined to agree with you there...
(sees Fluttershy's house)
Wait! I think I know this show!
Ron suddenly notices the town of ponies off in the distance.
Oh my gosh - KP, IT'S PONYVILLE! Oh,
this is so awesome!
You're a fan of the show, too?
You seem surprised by this revelation.
Not really. Moreso the revelation that
you're actually up early on Saturday.
What? KP, Saturday morning cartoons are
my jam! You've known that for forever!
Yeah, but considering it comes on at 6
AM in Middleton?
I record it.
Check and mate.
Alright, whatever. This looks like
Fluttershy's house - but where is she?
Angel walks up & tugs on Ron's pants, pointing at the hedge.
Um, if the rabbit grabbing my pants and
pointing that way is any indication - I
think we may have scared her, Kim.
They both look over - and see Fluttershy peek her head out.
KIM POSSIBLE (CONT'D)
Hey, it's okay... You can come out. We
won't hurt you. We just want to talk.
Fluttershy timidly steps out just a bit further.
It's alright. You can trust us.
The yellow pony doesn't budge any further.
RON STOPPABLE (CONT'D)
You like animals, don't you? Well,
we're pretty good with animals, too.
Rufus! Initiate "The Cutening!"
Rufus pops out of Ron's pocket and runs up to his shoulder.
RON STOPPABLE (CONT'D)
I've got my own little animal buddy -
just like how you've got your little
bunny friend there.
The naked mole rat waves happily.
Ho ho, hi!
Fluttershy is now intrigued enough to step all the way out
of the hedge. But she's still hesitant to approach them.
Exasperated, Angel pushes her towards them.
Kim stifles a giggle.
(still rather afraid)
Are - Are you ponies?
Angel bounds over to Kim, who kneels down and scratches the
little rabbit's head. Angel sighs quite contentedly.
No. We're humans. My name's Kim
Possible, and my friend here is Ron.
Huh? I've never heard of humans before.
That's because we don't exist in your
world. We're actually not supposed to
be here at all. But an accident
happened, and we're stuck here for now.
Yes, you're such a cute little bunny!
You like a head scratch, don't you?
Angel nods that it's okay to the pony. The yellow pegasus
seems to abate her fears after seeing this sign of approval.
(looks at Rufus)
What kind of animal is that? I've never
seen one that's so ugly, yet so
adorable at the same time before.
Rufus isn't quite sure exactly how to respond to that.
Rufus? He's a naked mole rat.
Isn't he cold without any fur?
Well, when it gets cold, yeah. But
don't worry. He's got his own little
coat and earmuffs for when it does.
I'm sorry for intruding upon your day
like this. Like I said before, we're
not even supposed to be here at all.
Oh my, no! You weren't ruining
anything! Besides, I always enjoy
meeting new creatures, especially ones
capable of speech like you - well,
except for full-grown dragons, of
course... But how did you know my name?
Um... It's rather a long story. If it's
okay with you, we'd like to talk to you
about it in private.
Oh, yes! Please, do come inside! I
should be only a minute or two. I just
need to get Angel to finish his
breakfast. He was being quite the fussy
bunny with his meal before you arrived.
There's a small CRUNCH and chewing noises behind them all.
Everyone turns to see Rufus eating the rest of the lettuce.
Rufus! Bad! That's not your food!
Oh ho... Sorry!
Angel appears quite happy about this sudden turn of events.
My apologies. Rufus and I - with food-
No, no, that's perfectly okay. Besides,
I have more lettuce inside, anyways.
Angel is not pleased with this revelation.
EXT. PONYVILLE - LATER
Drakken and Shego are walking along a path leading out of
the humble little pony town. All the ponies sharing the
walkway with them stare as the two humans stroll past them.
(to the staring ponies)
What? You four-legged highlighters
never seen bipedal creatures before?
Now now, Shego. We're walking
highlighters, too, remember? Can't you
be polite for once? Besides, there
actually aren't many bipedal creatures
in this show's world. And the ones that
are usually happen to be quite evil.
Well then - We'll just fit right in
with that lot quite nicely, won't we?
Please don't start talking like a Brit
again, Shego. You know how it irks me.
I'm sorry. Am I not using enough
"Cheerios" for your tastes, mate?
(pops up beside Shego)
What's a Cheerio?
(pops up on Shego's other side)
And why did you run away from me?
Dah! Stop that!
(now in front of Shego)
Stop what? What good is throwing a
welcome party for somepony if the
ponies I want to welcome with that
party don't want to be at their party?
Well, maybe we don't want a party
thrown for us in the first place? Did
ya' ever think of that, Eraserbutt?
(leans in tentatively)
Um, I still want to go to the party-
(ignites her hands again)
Shut up, Dr. D.
(leans out immediately)
My butt's not an eraser!
(sees Shego's ignited hands)
Ooh! You're doing your magic again!
Shego FIRES blast after blast of green energy at Pinkie.
The fireballs RIP up the pathway, sending the other ponies
on the walk SCATTERING. Eventually, the blasts die down, and
Shego stops, panting in absolute exhaustion.
Drakken peeks out from his hiding spot, nervously.
Is...Is it over?
The smoke from the blasts clears - and Pinkie is gone.
Yes. Finally, it's-
Pinkie's head suddenly appears from above her.
(on Shego's head)
Oh, that was so cool! Do it again! Do
it again! Oh, I've never seen anypony
use magic like that before! I should
really take you two to meet Twilight!
Twilight Sparkle! She's one of my best
friends! She's a unicorn, so she's
really good at magic. Oh, and she's the
personal protégée of Princess Celestia!
Drakken is listening intently.
You don't say?
Yeah! She's always studying and reading
books, and she's always curious to know
about new things all the time! Since
you might not be ponies now that I
look at you more, I know she'd just be
super duper THRILLED to meet a new kind
of species in Equestria! Especially new
creatures that can talk and do magic!
There's only a hoofful of creatures
here that can do that, you see?
(sees Drakken's expression)
Uh-oh. What devious plan are you
thinking of now, Drakken?
Quiet, Shego. Let the Doctor work.
(to Pinkie Pie)
Would this 'Twilight Sparkle' have
access to a science lab? That is, if
science exists in your magical world?
Oh, yes! We have science here! I know
that because a while back, Twilight
didn't believe in my Pinkie Sense -
which is where parts of my body
suddenly start twitching randomly,
warning me of certain things that are
about to happen. She brought in all
these fancy scientific machines and
hooked my head up to something that
looked like a colander with funny wires
all over it, and did all sorts of tests
to see if she could find a rational exp-
Yes, yes, of course. How about a deal:
We'll come to your welcome party for us-
(elbows Shego, annoying her)
-if you can get us a meeting with Miss
Sparkle. Do we have an accord?
He extends his hand. Pinkie Pie looks confused.
DR. DRAKKEN (CONT'D)
Deal. Do we have a deal? They have
hoofshakes in this world, don't they?
Oh! Yes! Yes, we have a deal!
(shakes his hand violently)
This is going to be just so neat! I've
gotta get back to Sugarcube Corner and
start making all the yummy cupcakes for
the party! Ooh! Ooh! Do you wanna help?
Um... Let me talk that over with my
partner here. She's a bit indecisive.
(bounding happily in place)
Drakken turns his back to Shego. She does the same.
Enlighten me, Dr. D. Just why on earth
should I be going along with this?
Must you always be so grumpy?
Yeah, pretty much.
Uh - Okay, yeah, forget I asked that.
Anyways, if we can get our hands on a
science lab, I may just be able to
scramble something together that could
help us to get out of here and back
into our own world - leaving Kim
Possible and the buffoon still trapped!
A grin slides over Shego's face.
Suddenly, I'm liking this plan a lot.
INT. FLUTTERSHY'S HOUSE - LATER
Angel still refuses to eat the piece of lettuce Fluttershy
pushes towards him as Kim is finishing a long explanation.
...and, well, to put a long story short
- that's how we ended up here.
This is just all so strange... We're
all fictional creatures created by
somepony's invisible hoof simply for
their own pleasure and amusement?
(nods his head)
And you're not actually magical
creatures after all?
Nope. That teleport was all science.
But Kim - Science is magic, remember?
I thought you said you hated science
after the last Chemistry assignment.
The school Board ruled in my favour on
that issue, KP. Barkin should not have
brought liquid Styrene into the school.
You can't pin that one on the Ronster.
Although, Ron has Mystical Monkey Ninja
powers. But that's another long story.
Oooh! That sounds like interesting
magic. May I see a demonstration?
Sorry - it's one of those things I
can't really control, y'know? Comes and
goes. I gotta be in the right moment.
Oh. I think I know what you mean...
Kim's communicator suddenly BEEPS. Fluttershy SQUEAKS in
fright and ducks under her couch. Angel smacks his head.
Hey, it's alright. That's just Kim's
communicator. More technology stuff.
Angel pulls her out from under the sofa.
(shakes dust from her mane)
I'm dreadfully sorry. It just startled-
(cuts her off)
Don't worry. We understand.
(to the communicator)
WADE is on the communicator screen, grinning devilishly.
So, how you liking Ponyville?
You set this one up, didn't you?
Brony through and through. But I'm not
here to brag. There's two other humans
who aren't supposed to be in Equestria.
(glares; clenches fist)
It looks like they ran into Pinkie Pie,
though. It's hard to track them through
the clutter, but if I caught it right,
they've agreed to let her throw a
welcoming party for them in exchange
for meeting Twilight afterwards.
Aw, man! How come they get the party?
Wait...Shego's willing to stand a
Pinkie Pie party? That's not good.
No kidding. I heard the words "science
lab," too. Kim, from the technology
seen in the show, it's conceivable
Drakken could build something that
would free them from the dimensional
entaglement. If they get out first-
-they could pull the plug on us.
Fluttershy GASPS in horror - then looks at Angel, confused.
Not that bad, actually. But you would
be stuck in the channel loop - FOREVER!
Nice Pinkie impression.
I've been working on it.
Wait, we'd be trapped forever in
Ponyville? That wouldn't be so bad.
You're ok with not having Nacos again?
Nah, I'll just show them how to make
Nacos. All you need is some lettuce,
beans, chips, some beef, and that's it!
Kim nods over at Fluttershy - staring at him, HORRIFIED.
RON STOPPABLE (CONT'D)
What? Ohhh, riiight.... Ponies.
Vegetarians. Heh. Forgot about that...
Kim turns back to Fluttershy.
My deepest apologies. Our species eats
meat and veggies. And The Ronster over
here eats a LOT of meat. Frankly, it's
about as disturbing in our own world.
Oh, I - I see. So you're like bears?
Yes! Yes, we're like bears! Not like
monkeys at all! Definitely not monkeys!
Huh? What's wrong with monkeys?
But she said you have Mystical Monkey-
(cuts Fluttershy off)
Like I said - It's a long story.
Speaking of, Ron - There is also the
possibility Drakken could change the
channels on you if he gets out first.
Meaning if he escapes first, he could
make sure we're trapped on Ape Island-
(glares; pounds his fist)
WHAT?!? That madman must be stopped!
Wow, that is a good impression, Wade.
So can you pinpoint exactly where
Drakken and Shego are right now, Wade?
(communicator ; typing)
Again, it's pretty hard with all this
clutter, but I'll try my best to get a-
Kim raises an eyebrow.
The front door EXPLODES open. Fluttershy and Ron both scream
and DIVE to cover. Kim instinctively hits a fighting stance.
The dust clears - and it's:
(bouncing into the house)
Fluttershy! Fluttershy! You've got to
come to meet these new ponies I ran
into today! They're kinda strange, but
they're still so cool! They walk on
their back hooves, they can use magic
and teleport like Twilight... One can
even throw fire with their front
hooves! Oh, you simply have to meet-
Drakken and Shego step in behind Pinkie.
Look, isn't the point of throwing a
party so that we can meet your friends
there? When do we get to the cupcake-
Shego instantly IGNITES her hands, ready for battle.
Finally - a show I can stand watching.
Pinkie looks back and forth between the poised combatants.
Yay! More new ponies! This is going to
be the best cupcakes party EVER!
(NOTICE: We are acutely aware of the abrupt ending of this. Unfortunately, our source says that's all that was written before the writers realized the sequence had become too long and cut it from the script. We have reached out to our source again to see if anything further was outlined or planned in their notes. If that is so the case, we have asked if we can - pending the source's approval - use those notes to continue the script ourselves and make the sequence a complete story. We will let you all know the moment we receive a reply. Thank you for your patience while we try to work this out.)
