    Ice Bucket Challenge & Game Project Plug

    So, I was challenge by BronyWriter last evening, and so I had to squeeze this fun little bit of brain freeze in during my morning routine as I got ready for work.

    To reiterate from my video, I challenge Blankedmind, Gremlin Grenade, JustAnotherTimeLord, The Illustrious Q.

    The challenge to Kkat has been retracted. She isn't in a position where she can perform the challenge due to a lack of equipment & funds as well as her personal preferences about the internet.

    Also, on  side note, a project I contributed to is back on Kickstarter. Scott Easley's 3x3 Wildstyle Basketball, a mobile street basketball game. If you supported it last time, please go do so again. If you haven't, please go check it out.

I'm wearing an Applejack shirt today and blue jeans. Hope to see you around. Best time to catch me is after my panels.

    - Do's and Dont's of Fanfiction - Hall of the Sun - 10:00 to 11:00 AM

    - Worlds Beyond: Crossovers in Fanfiction - Hall of Stars - 1:45 to 2:45 PM

    - Quills and Sofas Hangout - 3:00 - 4:00 PM

    Bronycon Day 1 Plan & Identifying Attire

    So, since there are folks wanting to meet up with me today, here is a rough idea of where I'll be and when. Also, such a late start today. I slept in, but I had a reason. Work made me stay up all night Wednesday to put out a last minute fire.

    0) 12:00 Float around the convention, likely checking out vendor hall

    1) 2:00 - Vendor Hall Shadow Box booth. Someone ordered something Past Sins related and they wanted me to sign it.

    2) 3:00 - 4:00 - I'll chill out at the Quill's and Sofa's room for an hour. Probably the easiest time you'll have finding me.

    If your looking for me today, I'm wearing a gray plaid long sleeve shirt and blue jeans.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful time at Bronycon today and I hope to see several of you around.

    Bronycon, Shattered Kingdoms, & A Plug for a New Past Sins Movie Project

    Bronycon looms just next week, and I look forward to the fact I once again get to attend this year. So I hope to see lots of friends and to meet anyone new. One person asked in e-mail if I'd be willing to sign his/her copy of Past Sins while I'm there. I'm totally cool with doing that for anyone that asks, just be sure to have a pen since there is no guarantee I'll remember to have one.

    As to Bronycon itself, I get to be on three panels this year. The last one I'll speak about in greater length, but the first two are writing panels. I'll be returning properly to the panel I kind of snuck onto last year, the Do's and Don't of Fanfiction. I'll also be on the Worlds Beyond: Crossovers in Fanfiction panel, both on Saturday. In fact, all three of my panels are on Saturday this year it would seem. It makes for a very interesting day.

    Now, as for the last panel, it is for a project I've been contributing to as a partial-writer as well as a story adviser. That project is "Shattered Kingdoms" and I'll be on the panel with several other members of the development team. Shattered Kingdoms is a game project that has been going on for several months now. The team lead, Gremlin Grenade, has a blog post from Fiesta Equestria last year that tells a lot more about the project then I can really fit into such a multi-purpose blogpost.

    Now not only is the development team having a panel this year, but there will be a live demo of the game available to play. I believe it will be in the Baltimare Arcade room, since it's the only electronic game room I'm aware of, but I'm sure Gremline Grenade will post up a blog soon with more information on what the demo will contain and verify where it can be played.

    Also, the team is looking for more writers to fill out its ranks and to ensure the story is as polished and properly complex as possible. So if you have any interest, drop Gremlin Grenade or come see us at our panel. The time and place are below, along with the time and place of my other two panels.

    - Do's and Dont's of Fanfiction - Hall of the Sun - 10:00 to 11:00 AM

    - Worlds Beyond: Crossovers in Fanfiction - Hall of Stars - 1:45 to 2:45 PM

    - Shattered Kingdom Game - Hall of Stars - 5:30 to 6:30 PM

    Again, I hope to see a lot of you there, and I'll see if I can't do something to make myself easily identifiable. (Besides the fact I basically wear the same outfits to every convention :P. Saturday I'll be sure to save my Applejack shirt and red, plaid short-sleeve button-down shirt.)

    And to wrap up this blog post, a commenter on Past Sins point out a new animation project that is starting to get underway. Someone new has begun a project to make Past Sins into an animated feature. It takes a lot of effort for someone to get far enough to even have a teaser trailer for something like this, so go give these guys some love and get hyped. (Especially because their design for Night Stone Castle looks pretty amazing!)

    TLDR version:

    - Going to Bronycon

    - I'm on three panels (check the list above for times and locations)

    - I'm a member of the Shattered Kingdom's dev team

    - We're having a panel and live demos at Bronycon

    - We're looking for writers, contact Gremlin Grenade.

    - Watch the video above for a Past Sins Movie Teaser Trailer, and give the creators some love.

    EDIT: To clarify some misconceptions in the comments, I am not doing the movie. Just giving a plug to the guys/gals who are.

=====Originally Posted Dec 2011====EQD Link=====

The arrival of a new "Star Buck's Coffee" in Ponyville is putting the pressure on Sugarcube Corner. The Cakes worry they'll soon be forced to say 'goodbye' to their bakery, until Pinkie Pie discovers a sugar-craving plant. Is this bizzare vegetation the bakery's saving grace, or will Pinkie Pie find it's growing appetite too much to handle?

A greedy corporate baron, a ravenous plant, musical numbers, and romance. Three of these four things are in this story, and since there's no shipping tag, you only get one guess.

Story is author-rated to be approximately PG (Nopony gets eaten or anything like that).

WARNING: This story features links to songs on YouTube. They will play when you click the link.

Finally! I'm first in a Pen Stroke story!

Anyway, I LOVE this story!

Any ideas on when Creeping Darkness will make an appearance on this site?

#2 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

yesh YESH

#3 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

Little Shop of Horrors. Very nice. Not my cup of coffee though. :trollestia:

#4 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

Aww, I was going to guess musical numbers, but you spoiled it for me in the description :fluttercry:

#6 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

Huh.  I either didn't notice or forgot who wrote this when I read it before.  It's one of my favorites.  Great to finally see it here.

#7 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

BRILLIANT. LSOH was one of my favorite musicals. And now it has ponies. :rainbowkiss:

#8 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·

You've got to be kidding me.... I started writing a little shop story 5 days ago called "Little Cottage of Horrors".... :applecry:

#9 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·


Well, now I fell sheepish. Sitll, thanks for pointing that out. It's been fixed.

#10 · 128w, 13h ago · · · Flower Power ·


No problem, but you could have easily said it was a new candy, or, ummm, the name of the plant.  Authors fabricating stuff is perfectly normal.  

  And my only response could have been something along the lines of "Hell yeah ."

#11 · 128w, 12h ago · · · Flower Power ·

by gosh you get my undying love for the premise alone. A fic that has horror in the title dealing with pinkie that has nothing to do with cupcakes...:pinkiegasp: It can be done...

I will read this for sure and be prepared for a full review, be warned Ill probably read most musical numbers while humming the music from the movie:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

#12 · 128w, 12h ago · · · Flower Power ·


If you are humming, sir, then I believe you will enjoy the story. This was, in part, an experiment for me of working equestria's common musical numbers into a fiction story.

#13 · 128w, 11h ago · · · Flower Power ·

Pen Stoke is back, more popular then ever. whath out. here comes a real writer. still waiting for the ess in his stories. namly Past Sins

#14 · 128w, 11h ago · · · Flower Power ·


#15 · 128w, 10h ago · · · Star Bucks and a Plant ·

Gah this is great, I'll have to read the rest after work but i'm reluctant to leave it here! :pinkiehappy:

#16 · 128w, 2h ago · · · Flower Power ·

>>579526 Quick question, where did you get the Lyra icon? :duck:

#17 · 127w, 6d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

This song was always my favorite from the movie, and being a baron seems like a good fit.

#19 · 127w, 6d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Aww my guess was gonna be the ravenous plant. The idea was that pinkie would fall in love with a greedy corporate baron and the two would sing musical numbers.

#20 · 127w, 6d ago · · · Flower Power ·

>>581966 Sorry to be a keeps-on-talking-and-never-ever-stops-pony (as :pinkiehappy: Pinkie puts it), but I use Windows, not Chrome or Firefox, so do I just get the Chrome one? Or do I have to start using Chrome whenever I comment on FiMFiction? :fluttershyouch:

#21 · 127w, 6d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Wow that was good...

#22 · 127w, 5d ago · · · Flower Power ·


Let us move this conversation to private messages so as to not annoy Pen Stroke and his readers as much.  :twilightsmile:

#23 · 127w, 5d ago · · · Star Bucks and a Plant ·

This is going to be interesting! :pinkiehappy:

#24 · 127w, 5d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

Oh snap, plague vines! :raritydespair:

#25 · 127w, 5d ago · · · Flower Power ·

XD i would really like to see that play

other than that decent....no ITS SUPER AWESOME AMAZING 20% COOLER STORY

#26 · 127w, 3d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Maybe there is a protagonist colt

But I liked this a lot

And it doesn't have a portal gun

But I prefer this one

With a plant that can grin

And ponies that start to sing

That distracts me from damn pee-hach-pee

I think this is a win

I can't put down my hoof

On why they don't give more luv

To the Little Sweet Tooth


#27 · 127w, 3d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Our school did a production of Little Shop of Horrors, it was great but the actual script has a horrible plot (hehehe I said plot :twilightblush:)

Anyway I might give this a go if I find that the language and character development makes up for that

#29 · 127w, 1d ago · · · Star Bucks and a Plant ·

I was in hysterics at the Flower Sister's number. Well done.

#30 · 122w, 4d ago · · · Flower Power ·

nice choice of backup singers.  thought you were going to use the cmc for a moment, but you've done well with this.

And yes, I sang along to the linked music - little shop is awesome.

#31 · 118w, 40m ago · · · Flower Power ·

That was so AWESOME! You are quite a writer!:raritywink:

#32 · 115w, 6d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

Is it a good thing I read Magnate Mogul's voice as Steve Martins'?

#33 · 115w, 4d ago · · · Star Bucks and a Plant ·

Oooh dear...

#34 · 115w, 4d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

Oh my god...

I read every line of Sweet Tooth's dialogue in the voice of GLaDOS, including the Rocky Horror parody. As of now, my mind has exploded from awesomeness overload.

#35 · 115w, 3d ago · · · Flower Power ·

I knew I was right to favourite this.

#36 · 110w, 3d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Oh god i remember this movie from when i was a kid, probably one of the first i saw.

#37 · 107w, 1d ago · · · Flower Power ·

...then they all die at the end... like in the musical play

#38 · 105w, 1d ago · · · Flower Power ·

This was a wonderful story, and I loved it very very much. :pinkiehappy:

#39 · 104w, 4d ago · · · Flower Power ·

I had to read this one, The Little Shop of Horrors is one of my favourite movies of all time.

I really enjoyed this story, it was very fun to read, I think you blended both worlds perfectly.

Very good job :pinkiehappy:

#40 · 103w, 1d ago · · · Flower Power ·

Glad I finally got around to reading this, it was wonderful. :pinkiehappy:

#41 · 96w, 1d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

Mogul grab some goggles because your about to be in deep shit:pinkiecrazy:

#42 · 95w, 6d ago · · · Business Dealings ·

I'm just a lethal little sweet trap, from far beyond... Equestriaaaa-ha-ha!

I thought the song Sweet Tooth sung was more like a Mean Green Mother parody.

#43 · 93w, 6d ago · · · Flower Power ·


#44 · 89w, 5d ago · · · Business Dealings ·


Ya' know, I'm thinking about doing a LSH crossover, but mine was going to be more in relation with the 1986 film, with a different set of characters.

#45 · 85w, 3d ago · · · Flower Power ·

That actually worked incredibly well, a musical fanfic! Admittedly, I'd only heard the 'dentist' song before, but that's what Youtube is for.

#46 · 85w, 3d ago · · · Star Bucks and a Plant ·

List of my reactions:

:rainbowderp: Oh shit

:derpyderp1: Dafuq

:fluttercry: That was beautiful

:pinkiehappy: (cue mindless dancing)

:flutterrage: MOAR!!!

#47 · 76w, 1d ago · · · Flower Power ·

"I'm a mean pink mother from outer space!"

#48 · 76w, 16h ago · · · Flower Power ·

Pen Stroke? Writing an MLP crossover of one of my favorite movies of all time? Oh boy...

EDIT: Eh, it was okay. The lyrics could've been a little more creative.

#49 · 74w, 1h ago · · · Business Dealings ·

OH god...I cant unhear Audrey II from Pet shop...I cant unhear it!!!

#50 · 66w, 21h ago · · · Flower Power ·

:pinkiehappy: This was absolutely AMAZING! When I first found it, I was a little sceptic, because I am a HUGE fan of the musical(not the move, sorry, but Rick Moranis CANNOT sing with Ellen Grene). But, then again, this story was written by the amazing Pen Stroke, mastermind behind the Nyx saga! But, this worked perfectly!
