    Anime Banzai

    Just a quick note to anypony out there in the Utah area. I'll be at Anime Banzai next week. (Weekend of Oct 17th) all three days. I don't  have any tables or events or anything, but I'll be pretty easy to find. I'll be the one cosplaying the 6th Doctor :)

    Returning to activity. Hopefully for a while yet.

    Sorry about the long absence here. Writing reached that point where it was feeling more like a chore than an enjoyment, so I had to take a brief break. Still got a new chapter out, so that's good. And while I haven't been terribly active on the writing side, there has been some exciting--at least to me--things happening with my stories over the last few months.

    First of all, A Friend of the Night was accepted by the Royal Guard. As this was a group you have to submit yourself, with prereaders and the like, I had to go back and re-edit that particular piece, making it now on it's... third revision I think. Nothing's changed from a plot perspective, but the reading is a bit cleaner, and the word count somewhat affected.

    Spike's Hoard has been given a Dramatic Reading by Dr. Wolf, found here. It's very well read, and I'm uber flattered that he did it. It makes me squee.

    A Storm of Chaos: A Doctor Whooves Adventure has been given a TVtropes page. And it wasn't started my me, either. (I always felt it bad form if I were to start a TVtropes page of my own work. That said, I'm not above shilling it now that it's made, so any Tropers out there, please contribute :) )

    And, most recently, Cheese n' Crackers was reviewed and put on Seattle's Angels, which is a particular honor in that I couldn't have submitted the story if I wanted to, somebody else did, and the whole point of the group is to bring attention to underviewed but good works.

    So, all in all, I've had a pretty good couple of months, from a recognition side of things, especially since I'm such a relatively small-time writer in this here fandom. And I owe it all to you guys out there who do read my stuff and follow me. Cheers to you all, and I'll try to get my next chapter out much faster this time.

    Throwing a proposition out there (no not like that! Outta the gutter!)

    Y'know, I've been thinking about this for quite some time, but have just now worked up the nerve to get this out there. For a couple'a reasons. First, I'm not entirely sure I have the skills to manage a project like I'm thinking about. Second, I dunno, it just seemed presumptuous for me to ask. And third, I'm not sure if I have the... clout? fame? readership? to get my request out there and picked up by someone who's both interested and talented enough to make this a good production. I mean, I have a much bigger readership than I ever originally thought I'd get, but even so these blog posts of mine tend to get something like 30 views a pop or so.  Still, I've finally decided to try. The worst that'll happen is, well, nothing.

    Here's the idea: I want Storm of Chaos to have either a dramatic reading or radio play done about it.

    I'm thinking dramatic reading, as a radio play would require soooo much more than I think I can handle. Just off the top of my head, we'd need actors for all major characters (and that's a rather sizable list, especially considering each act brings in its own cast), sound engineers, both in creating foleys and general sountrack, rewriting of the material to work in that format, and any number of things I'm sure I'd never think of without asking Pony in a Box for hints or something. But a dramatic reading? All we'd need is one good voice with the ability to at least act out the characters properly (if you've ever read a book on tape, most readers don't even vary their voices that much, but the good ones still evoke the characters well enough that you know exactly who they are quoting), and a sound guy to put in a bit of a soundtrack and maybe some sound effects like a dematerializing TARDIS or something. I myself can not really do either, or else, well, I'd just do it myself. For one thing--at least on the vocal front--I am an American. Very, very American. And I can't fake a British accent to save my life--whether from the North or any other region. And while that really wouldn't be much of a concern for almost any other series, Doctor Who is so quintissentially British I think I'd be doing the series a major disservice if at the very least the Doctor Who characters didn't have appropriate accents. (There are other things, too, like me just not having a good recording voice or being all that good an actor)

    So, first things first, I need a reader. We can find a sound guy later, unless you're able to do both, and if you can by all means use those skillz in the audition. The segment I'd like to use for audition is Chapter 5: "Don't Just Don't," Starting from "Another scream, another pony down" down to the end of the chapter. If you're interested, shoot me a youtube link or something in the comments, or even send me a P.M. to work out other means to get an audition to me. If you want to see this happen, but aren't too confident in your ability to directly contribute, get the word out.

    The one real catch is that, well, this is being done as a hobby. I'm kinda a poor schmuck who couldn't afford to pay ya even if I wasn't sure about the legalities of doing so. This would all be just done during free time to get it out there. Which also means, of course, that I wouldn't be trying to force some unreasonable schedule on you either, though I would like to produce something along the lines of a chapter or two a week, if at all possible.

    I'm actually really nervous about this, but, heck, let's see what happens.

    Doctor Who BOok Review: Last of the Gaderene

    Third book, Third Doctor. Last of the Gaderene was written in 2000 by Mark Gatiss, who, incidentally, would go on to write episodes when the show rebooted.

    Basic plot as follows: In a small little British village, a group of shady individuals buys the recently-defunct WWII era aerodome to turn it into a large scale airport. The company, one Legacy International, is so shady that one of the village's old timers, a survivor of the War, decides to call in a favor from his old war buddy, one Brigadier Alistair Lethbrage-Stewart. Naturally, the Brig sends in the Doctor and Jo Grant to investigate. Naturally, since the Brig has sent in the Doctor to investigate, it turns out to be an alien invasion. In fact, it turns out to be an alien invasion spearheaded by none other than the Master.

    This story is a bit different than the previous two. For one thing, it's Earthbound rather than spacebound. For another, it is--as I've had the Doctor say a couple of times in Storm of Chaos--"an actual mission, very Double Oh Seven," rather than something the Doctor just accidentally stumbled upon. This is largely because of the fact it's a Third Doctor story, of course. Even after he had his banishment annulled at the end of the Three Doctors (and this book does take place during that time, he even spends a couple of chapters offworld wrapping up one of his accidentally stumbled upon adventures.) he kind of made then-modern Earth and UNIT his home. It took a regeneration into an insane scarf-wearing candy eater for him to really take the TARDIS and run. This book actually does touch upon the fact that, now that the Doctor is free, he really has no reason to stay at UNIT full time and the day will come that he will leave his position for good. And of course, this Doctor gets into physical altercations at least as much as he finds clever solutions to the task at hand. He is the Third Doctor, after all.

    The real joys of this book are the Doctor and Jo, and the Doctor and the Master. In one moment, the Doctor and Jo are clearly very close, almost in sync, and Jo is noting how he's actually treating her with respect, like a colleague, the next, he's accidentally belittling her, making her storm off in a huff. Then of course, there's the Master. The original Master. The overtones of their long-gone friendship are there, but the Master's sheer, unrepentant evil kinda overshadows it. His whole reason behind helping the invasion is just to see the human race destroyed, and even after it all inevitably goes to Hell, he continues to keep his plans going to the end out of pure spite. Of course, he also bellows his famous line "and you will obey me!" multiple times, as he hypnotizes a few hapless citizens.

    Overall, probably my favorite book so far 9/10. Next up, the Fourth Doctor. Gotta admit, I'm looking forward to it.

Discord's statue has vanished from where Celestia had put it in the royal dungeons, but it doesn't seem to be because Discord himself has escaped.  Rather, somepony has stolen it.  Now the Doctor and his loyal companion Derpy will search time and space to find the culprit.  Bring on the drums!

Now with a TVtropes Page.

cybermare attack!? YAY!!:yay:

>>900280

I didn't realize it was that bad.  I thought it was similar to saying "crap."  Crude, but not horrible.  Still keeping it though.  For some reason I like the idea that the Doctor curses in 'British,' thinking Derpy wouldn't get it, only for her to smack him for it.

DEL
#6 · 118w, 2d ago · · · Assimilate ·

amazing.   like how for once the cybermare was stopped before it was a large threat. most stories with cybermares show them having killed half of equestria. this one is good. the master is one of my favorite doctor who characters as well, so i cant wait for the next update.

#7 · 118w, 8h ago · 1 · · Don't. Just... Don't ·

I love the way Derpy and the Doctor interact. Their chemistry is wonderful.

amazing

Nice work, i like how the doctor calls Celestia little Celestia or celly and stuff :trollestia::rainbowkiss::pinkiehappy::ajsmug::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

#10 · 117w, 4d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

Oh dear... Having seen most of "New Who" as it's called...

I can see where you're going with this.

Still, the journey there will be interesting.

(And hopefully you still have a few tricks hidden in your sleeves)

Keep up the good work!

I can't WAIT to see how you'll handle this :D

(And yes, the interactions between the Doctor and Derpy are VERY well written, and hilarious to read :rainbowlaugh: )

#11 · 117w, 4d ago · 1 · · The Doctor is In ·

This just got interesting...

#12 · 117w, 4d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

Yep. We know who Old Hoof is. This may come out well. But. What comes after will not.

#13 · 117w, 4d ago · 1 · · Don't. Just... Don't ·

I am, for lack of an awesomer word, Loving this

#15 · 117w, 3d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

So they arrived a bit early and are going to have the Master open the watch, causing him to remember and then he will steal Discord? I can totally see this as an actual doctor who episode. It's gonna be good. The Master was always one of my favorite enemies.

#16 · 116w, 2d ago · · · Allons-Y! ·

I've only seen the season with the ninth Doctor so far, so I haven't seen anything with the Master, but he seems like a nast piece of work. I'm looking forward to reading more of this!

#17 · 115w, 6d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

Loving this story so far, though I have a feeling I'll enjoy it more once I see more Doctor Who...

“Oh come on, Doctor,” Derpy teased. “I don't bite. Much.”

:rainbowlaugh:

#18 · 115w, 3d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

>>1020285

Probably, though I am trying really hard to keep it understandable and enjoyable for those who might be a bit less familiar with the series, even if they won't get all the jokes and references.

#19 · 113w, 6d ago · · · I Am... ·

And i see where this is going now.

And nailed it. The Doctor's old friend you know who .with the drums and madness.

I was tapping my fingers to the Masters drumbeats on the last paragraph.

yep nailed it

#23 · 112w, 5d ago · · · And You Will Obey Me ·

Yeah, well... not like I was trying to hide it from you crazy Whovians or anything :ajsmug:

#24 · 112w, 4d ago · · · And You Will Obey Me ·

The master is my favorite Doctor Who villain along with the weeping angels and Vashta Narada.

No that couldn't be him. That was another author. Hmmm, who could he be

Evil Nicolas Flamel.

#27 · 112w, 2d ago · · · And You Will Obey Me ·

and so it begins again

Exterminate, regenerate...

I was wondering when the Master would show up. I can't believe I missed the Old Hoof pun, though. :facehoof:

>>1168582

Nope, it's a ponified Dr. Who character, but which one I'm not gonna reveal until I'm ready. :derpytongue2:

Wow, you've really captured the voices of the Doctor and Master. I could hear the voices while reading them, and my fingers started tapping out a sequence at various parts of their volition.

Thanks for the story and I look forward to reading more!

#31 · 109w, 1d ago · · · Allons-Y! ·

Hmm, a game of wits.

Intresting.

#32 · 109w, 1d ago · · · Onwards and Upwards ·

>>903886

It's original meaning is very bad, but it is used nearly on a daily basis over here.

As for this chapter, not all that bad, very well written. I suppose the next few will contain a bit more action.

#33 · 109w, 1d ago · · · Don't. Just... Don't ·

Anthrax?

As in, the disease?

Fantastic as always, but I can't help thinking that might be a hole in my DW knowledge...

#34 · 109w, 1d ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

Hmmm.

A re-writing.

Not my favourites, but never judge a book by its cover, and this story is very good so far.

i originally thought it was Davros, but i think im wrong now....

#36 · 109w, 1d ago · · · And You Will Obey Me ·

I was wondering how you would replace YANA as a clue.

Nedless to say, you saved yourself, even if by the nails.

There are a number of possibilities here:

-The monk, though unlikely;

-Omega, which is unusual;

-Rassilon, though sort of obvious;

-The Valeyard, though also unlikely, as he only comes round during 12-13;

-Maybe a regenrated Rani...?

-A future Master;

-The Other would be a real stunner of a twist.

Do go on.

#38 · 109w, 1d ago · · · Don't. Just... Don't ·

>>1297336

Yes, Anthrax as in the disease. Hence the line about "someone having a strange sense of humor." There's no Dr. Who hole in your knowledge. I made it up :scootangel:

#39 · 109w, 18h ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

DON'T OPEN THE FOB WATCH!!!! When I watched this episode on DW I was screaming that the whole time.

You know, I really like all stories with the Doctor and Derpy/Ditzy. So now, excuse me as I fav this without even looking at the summary (I Lied, I read that.), then start reading. :moustache:

#41 · 109w, 16h ago · · · Prelude to Drums ·

By just hearing "Old Hoof", I knew it. Dammit, Yana, And I used to think you were cool. Well, Saxon's Cooler.

All right-O, Already read this. And really, I can only think of the Stallion as Rassilon. But I don't know, because i've watched only the "New Who" So far.

Congrats on finally getting featured on EqD! I love this story, and it definitely deserves the post.

#44 · 108w, 4d ago · · · The Distant Drums ·

Oops...

#45 · 108w, 3d ago · · · The Distant Drums ·

oh boy...  Is it just me or does anyone have the oddest sense that if this era's version of Twilight Sparkle is turned the real one might not be far behind...  That would screw with time soooooooo much... makes me both queasy and giddy thinking about the implications...  :pinkiehappy::pinkiesick:

#46 · 108w, 3d ago · · · Assimilate ·

Ve never watched a single episode of Doctor Who but i like this anyway and i still know enough to get it:pinkiesmile:

Discord...

HOW OMINOUS! :derpyderp1:

#49 · 107w, 6d ago · · · The Drums of War ·

So that supposedly why 3 little fillies doing what children do everywhere (have a simple argument) . Could release Discord centuries hence.
