    Rainbow Rocks is Great; or, Sonata is Magic

    Go see Rainbow Rocks. It's great. I think the music, the antagonists, Sunset Shimmer's role, the pandering... I think it's ALL quite good. So go see it! Before it's too late!

    And, remember: Sonata is Magic.

    It's been 21 months...

    As I was writing a supportive private message to a writer on Fimfic who has lost their writing mojo for some time, I realized... wow. Yeah, it's been 21 months since I've produced a piece of prose. Basically two years now.

    Sure, my job gives me a chance to have a creative outlet and make something that many people see and enjoy. I'm really, REALLY lucky to be in that position, and I'm grateful!

    But, that's not quite the same thing as crafting a story and sharing it with people, having them read it and describe how it impacted them. I almost forgot that someone once told me that Nocturne was their favorite story of all time. That's... really something. To be fair that person is hopelessly addicted to Luna, but still!

    Anyway. I should really follow my own advice I gave that ailing writer: I should pick up the pen keyboard and write SOMETHING that strikes my fancy. If I write something for myself, then I know at least some of you will like it, so I'd share it, and suddenly I'm a writer again, just like that. It's magic~

    So, with that in mind... what do I write?!

    The Purloined Pony, classic CYOA, now on Fimfic!

    If you never read this grand Choose Your Own Adventure story back in the day, I'd really suggest giving it a try:

    Link to the Purloined Pony

    Admittedly I haven't re-read it since 2012, so I have no idea how well it stands up to time... I do recall having LOTS of fun with it, though, and not putting it down until I had explored EVERY branch. I liked it enough to reference it in Shutdown, so it definitely made an impression on me!

    (And if you know of any other really good CYOAs please leave me a comment letting me know!)

    Amazing Reading of Shutdown

    I just found out that a lovely British(?) Youtuber by the name of ObabScribbler did a full recording of my story Shutdown. Not only did she do a reading but she voice acted each character and put in some very atmospheric background music. It's great stuff!

    Seriously, even if you don't want to listen to MY story, follow through to go to her channel and look at what else she has done, add to her views, thumb up, favorite... yada yada. Give her the attention she deserves!


    Edit: While writing this I suddenly got to the part where she voices Pinkie Pie and wow, I LOVE her Pinkie voice. It's not a 100% perfect imitation, but that doesn't matter; it's that kind of voice where it COULD have been her actual voice in the show just as easily as what we got. It's just great. <3

    Edit #2: And now I've heard the ending, and my own dumb story gave me feels because of the voice acting. It's funny, when I first wrote the story I never thought of it as a sadfic, but now I understand why some people were really impacted by it...

Zecora's helpful nature has won her many good friends in Ponyville, but they're in for a big surprise when Zecora tries to show them what the best medicine really is. And no, it's not laughter.

I can see this being featured... :ajsmug:

#2 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

At first, I was like, 'what's with the title'?

Then I read it.

And I lol'd so hard.

#3 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Niceeeee, lol...

Between Pinkie's completely ditz agreement, and the reference to Granny smith's line and fronting, it's just.. Dear Celestia :rainbowlaugh:

#4 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

When I started reading, I was in a bad mood. Now? Can't stop smiling.

#5 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

:pinkiegasp: Buck yeah! Hahahah this is hilarious!

#6 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>752865 One can hope. :moustache:

>>752875>>752879>>752897>>752940 It's a relief to know that this actually IS funny. Phew. :twilightsheepish: Really glad you guys enjoyed it!

#7 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Heh, this made me smile.

Because of that, you've earned a thumbs up from me :pinkiesmile:

#8 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I read the description and all I could think is "I am either a massive pervert or this is gonna get sexual." It did, and it was hilarious.

#10 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I caught the reference to Fluttershy's original name.  Extraordinary story.

#11 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

This made me smile, smile, smile.

Also,  I didn't even [i[know you could do that with cake frosting! And Zecora, she--"

#12 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

*EPIC GENTLMAN LAFFTER*

#13 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>753072 Ha, good on ya! I was wondering who might mention that.

>>753084 Thank you for the fix!! Oh, and I thought of you when I PinkieDash'd :heart:

>>753085 Oh-hohoho! :moustache:

#14 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Exemplary! :moustache:

My Little PinkieDash: Frosting is Magic

Did you read that story? With the frosting gun? It was a bit bleh except for the frosting gun part. With was actually also bleh, but fun imagery.

#16 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

"Is it a mare's approach that causes you shock? There's still much fun to be had, even without a--"

And that´s where I hit the "Like" Button.

>>753128 Excelsior! :moustache:

>>753178 Never heard of it. I'm mildly scared.

L.O.V.E. Machine - W.A.S.P.

For some reason I was expecting Beavis and Butthead, but that was funny enough.

#19 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

This is now Zecora´s official theme in my headcanon.

#20 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Zecora Does Ponyville

Like...all of them?

Maybe I should actually read this.

#21 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>753199 Takei is best pony.

>>753251>>753266 Gonna have to listen to these later!

#23 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I don't even understand what happened, but I have the distinct feeling that you're so good at your craft that I never will, either.

Loved it. Envy you for being a clever pony.

#24 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I usually don't like this kind of thing, but... that was admittedly hilarious.  I :rainbowlaugh: out loud more times than I could count.  Good on you!  Very clever writing, and excellent rhymes for Miss Z.

#25 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>753492 Well, that's one way to use an icing gun. :derpytongue2:

>>753819 Zecora did Ponyville, obviously!

>>753819>>754692 Really glad you liked it so much! Thank you, guys. :pinkiehappy:

#26 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Congratulations! You are officially #10 on the featured list! Numbers 1, 2, and 3 being the top three featured right now.

#27 · 123w, 5d ago · · ·

I thought this couldn't possibly be, because man, too obvious! Then it turns out it is what it is!:rainbowlaugh:

#28 · 123w, 5d ago · · ·

I'm always impressed with Zecora fics, just because of the talent it takes to write all her lines.

This was very funny and amused me greatly.

:pinkiehappy:

#29 · 123w, 5d ago · · ·

>>755549 Woo! I'm Number Ten! I'm Number Ten! :yay:

>>757036 It is what it is! Truer words have never been spoken...

>>758720 I tend to pause while I'm writing to think about what I'm going to do next, but in this story the longest pauses were trying to decide what Zecora was going to say. Honestly, it was fun! But, I don't think I could write her as the main character of a longer, non-comedic story. It would probably start to get to me. :derpytongue2:

>>759942 Iambic pentameter looks really frickin' hard.

#31 · 123w, 5d ago · · ·

>>760226 I don't think I pulled off 100% Iambic pentameter but yeah, during editing I realized I needed to re-structure some of Zecora's sentences to get as close as possible. I think it turned out okay!

#32 · 123w, 4d ago · · ·

I had wayyy too much laugh right now

#33 · 123w, 4d ago · · ·

#35 · 123w, 4d ago · · ·

>>762863

CANON on the other hoof =

1.  An ecclesiastical law or code of laws established by a church council.

2.  A secular law, rule, or code of law.

3.

a.  An established principle: the canons of polite society.

b.  A basis for judgment; a standard or criterion.

4.  The books of the Bible officially accepted as Holy Scripture.

5.

a.  A group of literary works that are generally accepted as representing a field: "the durable canon of American short fiction" (William Styron).

b.  The works of a writer that have been accepted as authentic: the entire Shakespeare canon.

6. Canon The part of the Mass beginning after the Preface and Sanctus and ending just before the Lord's Prayer.

7.  The calendar of saints accepted by the Roman Catholic Church.

8. Music A composition or passage in which a melody is imitated by one or more voices at fixed intervals of pitch and time.

Means what is official fact according to the series and merchandise etc.

Fanon = What the fans think is canon. For example Octavia x Vinyl Scratch

Headcanon = What goes inside my own head that I think should be canon. For example Zecora listening to George Michael while doing Ponyville.
