19w, 6dAnniversary Time Once Again0 comments · 35 views
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.

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.

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 Fanfiction.net 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.

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.

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.
