Hippophobia: An abnormal and persistent fear of horses. Sufferers of this fear experience undue anxiety even when a horse is known to be gentle and well trained. They usually avoid horses entirely rather than risk being kicked, bitten or thrown. They may also fear other hoofed animals such as donkeys, zebras, mules and... ponies.

OK guys, look, I'm so sick and tired of people being all like "When are you gonna update <story>? It's been so long! Whah! Whah! Whah!"
First off, messages like these only piss me off and make me not want to write, because I feel like I'm being demanded to continue these stories. My job is a shithole where I do most of the physical labor while most of my coworkers get off early and my boss is a patronizing panderer who only acknowledges my efforts with a worthless pat on the back, and when I get home, I have to deal with a shitty family that does nothing but fight and bitch, especially my mom, who can't even get off her ass long enough to throw her own trash away. Between this, I have my own ambitions that I barely get any time to pursue, and I'm hoping to get out of my shit job and away from my (hard-pressed to call them) family.
I don't have time to write. I barely have time to read. And frankly, with how awful the show has been getting lately, I don't even think I'd want to write about ponies anymore. Yeah, you heard me right, I hate the new episodes; I think they suck, they're badly written, have no effort put into them, and just keep rehashing old lessons. That, and I'm sick of hearing about fucking breezies. I hate the breezies. Not to mention, my life has been making me into a much more critical and cynical person than I used to be, and I'm noticing things about Equestria itself that just seem really, really messed up, and that I honestly believe carry very disturbing subliminal messages. I know kids won't notice most of them, but in some cases, it's not hard to see, and they will notice them. It's making me hate the Mane Six, and REALLY hate Celestia and Luna. Yes, Luna. I think it's really messed up that she goes into people's minds and watches their dreams, no matter how noble her intentions.
Though, to be fair, I probably wouldn't have noticed most of these flaws were it not for fimfics pointing them out and making a big deal out of them, so I guess it's sort of the fandom's fault that I can't really call myself a fan anymore. I have no more interest in My Little Pony other than something cute to look at now and then, and even then, that's only fan art.
The only reason I'm sticking around this site is to follow the stories on my faves list that still interest me. Once those end, I'll be gone. I have no interest in continuing my stories, however, they are still my stories, and I will not allow anyone to just pick them up and continue them, because that's art theft, and I will find out if you do it
Maybe one day, the show will be good again. Maybe I'll learn to look past those issues and just enjoy the ride of each new episode... and maybe Half Life 3 will be released. Or Dinosaur Planet. Whichever comes first.

The amount of effort put into this is staggering. She actually CHANGED MY NAME to hers to make it look like she really wrote it! Huh! I can barely tell this was ever mine now, and oh, look! She categorized it as "fan fiction" too. Oh, isn't that just genius? Make people think it's a fan fiction so they won't know you stole an original story. That oughta keep those pesky mods off your trail. Even with the utterly identical tag line and cringeworthy story being copied word for word, I almost didn't realize this was my story, even after seeing it directly under my story on Google. Bravo, little queen, bravo. You'd make the changelings proud with your leet copying skillz.

High atop Mt. Canter, in the city of Canterlot, at the top of the castle tower, in the royal observatory, Princess Luna, lunar diarch of the magical land of Equestria, watched the fair city that she and her elder sister, Princess Celestia, solar diarch of the magical land of Equestria, resided in. As Luna peered down into the city through the ornate telescope, a mysterious cloud spread over the streets, blotting out the moonlight. The princess of the night scowled.
"What treason is this?" she asked aloud to nopony in particular, "Who would be so bold as to interrupt our view of the city with this uncalled-for weather?"
A small hole opened up in the cloud, allowing a beam of moonlight to shine down onto the cobblestone street.
Luna humphed and took her place back at the telescope. "That's better." She peered through the lens, and soon her mouth fell agape at the sight she beheld.
Down the tube of light, a brown earth pony with a slick, black mane plummeted from the sky to the ground. Before she could formulate a reaction, the stallion slammed into the ground. Upon impact, a mysterious chior began to sing a joyous and peaceful song, followed by the stallion getting to his hooves and brushing himself off as though nothing had happened.
Luna stared in stunned silence as the pony looked around in mild bewilderment before wandering off into the night. The princess staggered back and scrambled into her room, calling her sister's name. Had she stayed, she would have witnessed another strange phenomenon: strings of words scrolling up the circle of light.

The tube of light then shrank until it disappeared entirely, leaving no trace that anything out of the ordinary had transpired there.
This just popped into my head. The problem is, Mr. Bean is a visual, and mostly silent, comedy. I have no idea how I would translate that into writing without giving away the jokes. If anyone likes this concept though, go ahead and try it. I wanna see what you come up with, though, so let me know if you decide to use this opening, or not.

I have decided that I definitely am rewriting Hunter the Shadewing. I honestly believe I can not do a war story justice, so I've picked two alternate scenarios.
ONE: Hunter arrives at the beginning of Season One and helps fight Nightmare Moon. Unlike other S1E1 inserts, this would lead to an entirely alternate timeline, however, if I were to tie in any episodes, I doubt they'd turn out very differently. In other words, I feel like I'd Gary Stu Hunter if I chose this road. A similar story to this idea would be A Whole New World, the one where Dutch becomes the Element of Bravery.
TWO: Hunter arrives after Season Three, Season Four and Equestria Girls never happen, and Hunter's interactions will be more with background ponies than the Mane Six. I feel like this would give me more freedom, but I haven't thought as far ahead in this possible line. This idea is closer to Twilight's Unfaithful Student with some significant OC differences.
So which do you guys think sounds more interesting?

A friend of mine suggested this, so I thought I'd give it a shot. OK, so since I have too many stories, I've decided to hold a contest. For the stories listed as such, I will allow people to write the next chapter and PM them to me. Whoever writes the best chapter will earn the right to continue the story. I will also send my plans to the winners, but you can choose not to follow them if you want. The continuation status of my stories is as follows:
The reason I haven't continued this one lately is because the plans I had for it are too ambitious. Literally, with what I planned, this story was turning out bigger than Kyrodian Legends, and with no end in sight. It also ties in with several other of my stories, though I won't spoil which ones. I might consider letting this one go, but it'll be tough.
Actually, I'm very close to the end on this one. The problem is, this is my most popular story, and I'm terrified that the ending won't do it justice. I can't say how many times I've rewritten the final chapter. I might even split it into two instead anyway. I do intend to finish this one, just let me get the nerve. I dunno whether to blame you guys for liking it so much or myself for making something better than I thought, but I'm afraid I'll screw this up, because truth be told, I wrote is as a joke; I never intended for it to get so big.
Hunter the Shadewing
Not planning on opening this one up. Sorry. However, if anyone's interested in using shadewings, just let me know, and I'll post info on how they work.
I had an idea for an alternate version of this story. If you remember my previous post regarding this story, I'm still not sure if I'm able to write a convincing war story. I was thinking for a possible rewrite, Hunter isn't aware of Equestria and fights Nightmare Moon, but I've already seen several stories like that. The difference in my idea, aside from the main character not being human, is that the deus ex machina of the second episode doesn't happen. I dunno, what do you guys think?
My Little Squirrel
Prisoner of Freedom/Reshackled
Just take it. If you guys wanna write about a depressed amnesiac changeling with a foul mouth and an addiction to tea, you be my guest. With how much I've been working on the Kyrodian Legends version of Shacklebolt, I just don't like the Fimfiction version anymore, and it's not like I own changelings or anything, so there's no stopping you guys from doing your own versions of the changeling Shacklebolt. I just don't like him anymore.
Retribution of Blackberry Pie, The
Nope. Having too much fun with this one. Sorry, all mine.
Rum Raisin Brandy
This... ugh, this was the most shameless self insert ever. Heck, it was so shameless, I was considering crossing over with My Better Life if Sharky White allowed it. That and, well, I just don't feel right writing a story that includes another real person (talking about Crescendo here) and possibly making him do something he wouldn't really do. Dunno what I'm gonna do with this, but since it's an RL insert, I don't plan on handing it over, except maybe to Crescendo.
I have no plans for this. It was just an interesting concept. I'm very happy to take submissions for this, since a lot of people seem to think it's a good idea, and I'd like to see something come of it as well.
I actually like this one a lot. The reason I stopped is cuz I had the second chapter written; it just got deleted and I never rewrote it cuz rewriting something that I like but got deleted is a pain cuz I try to make it as good as it was before, and it just never seems right. I have an ending planned, as well as some more funny scenes. I just can't get over this block. But just to be clear, no, this one is not open.
I'll take submissions for this one, and I do have plans.
Without a Trace
The end is near for this one. I'm gonna try and finish it.
TL;DR, you guys can try for these ones:
Oh yeah, there was that one story from a long time ago, Transcendent Bonds. I had planned pretty far on that one, but never came up with an ending, and what I had planned was full of holes. I still have the files somewhere, so if anyone wants to try, I'll send you what I had, and you can write your entry based on that.
Submissions to be sent here via PM (put the chapter in a quote box) or as an attachment via email to pixelnut <at> live <dot> com. May the best author(s) win!
