    Couple quick announcements

    Just a little heads-up for all of you: at the end of the month, I'll be leaving for Algonquin Park for two weeks to take part in a field course focusing on the biodiversity of the Canadian Shield. For those two weeks, I'll be completely off the grid. Granted, this won't be that different from my current level of activity, which leads into my second announcement: I'm giving myself a self-imposed deadline. By the end of the month, I will have released something. Might be a oneshot, might be that novel-length thing I've been alluding to. Depends how things go.

    Point is, I'm going to publish something to get me out of this rut of inactivity. Possible projects are: something involving fencing (swish swish stab), something involving space (may or may not be heavily inspired by Mass Effect) and a no-dialogue challenge piece that I've been kicking around. Or it might be something completely different. We'll have to see.

    If I don't have something released by the end of the month, I encourage you to chastise me to your heart's content.

    That is all.

    EDIT: Well, that didn't work at all. The last second rush to finish my insect collection for my entomology course kind of ate up all my free time. So... yeah. If it counts, I have a oneshot half done. Might be able to get the other half finished in Algonquin Park.

    And this is why you should never set deadlines for yourself.

    Progress reports

    Because I have nothing more witty to say, and because I'm sick of looking at that last blog post, I'll throw a bit on my current projects here.

    Now that my pet project of two years (A Simple Reflection) has been completed after extensive rewrites, revisions and hiatuses, I'm moving on to an even more ambitious story. I'm gonna go for something that might actually break the 100k word limit (and, based on my usual pace, might be completed some time after the sun goes supernova). It's something I've been talking and thinking over for a while, but have only recently started writing.

    At it's core, it's a friendshipping fic featuring Octavia and Applejack. Of course, it's got some of the most detailed world-building I've done yet, and a (hopefully) sweeping, engaging plot, but that's irrelevant. The point is, it's a fic with Octavia, and Vinyl Scratch never makes an appearance. Not once. She's not even mentioned. I'm taking the fandom's interpretation of Octavia and throwing it right out the window for this one.

    But anyway, I'm most of the way through the second chapter. I'll probably write ten chapters (or so) before publishing, and release the first three to five chapters in a lump, just to get the story moving a bit. Hopefully, the remaining chapters will give enough of a buffer for me to actually do a semi-regular update schedule.

    I've had nothing but free time for the last little while, and if the places I'm applying to for the summer continue to stonewall me, I might be stuck that was for an uncomfortably long time.

    But yeah. That's about all I've got in the way of ideas for the moment. Hopefully, I'll be able to get the first few chapters of this new fic out some time soon.

    I feel like I should explain myself.

    As several of you may have noticed, my current project, a story titled A Simple Reflection has recently, and finally made it onto Equestria Daily. You may have also noticed that it hasn't updated for about six months. Even for my usual pace, that's a bit ridiculous.

    Now, one of the more recent comments on that story raised the point that due to the long update drought, they were skeptical as to why it was allowed on EqD at all. They were concerned that it was a story that would never be finished.

    I should probably assuage those concerns right now: the story's done. It's been done for almost three weeks. Three more chapters and about eighteen thousand words are sitting unpublished. Why, you ask? There were a number of reasons.

    First off, the last three chapters have undergone several rounds of heavy revision as the story progressed: revisions heavy enough to make stealth edits infeasible. Second, my pre-reader, as many of you are aware, is currently going through warrant officer training and won't be back until April 1st or 2nd. The fourth chapter has been looked over thoroughly by him. The fifth and final chapters have not. I wouldn't be comfortable releasing them in that state, so I won't.

    Thirdly, and this is probably the most selfish of all: I wanted to put off updates until the story got onto EqD, which took far longer than I expected it to. Things were bogged down on their end, which I can't fault them for. In any case, I was waiting for the extra exposure, in order to get as much feedback on this, my pet project, as possible. Was it fair to my readers? Not in the slightest. I do apologize for it. Hell, if it wouldn't guarantee pathetic exposure and limited feedback, I'd hold off on publishing any story until it was completely finished. But that's not the way things work in the jungle that is Fimfiction, and so I had to rely on your continued patience.

    So there you go. Assuming good ol' Bronius has the time and motivation, the last two chapters should be out soon after he comes back. The fourth chapter, as many of you may have noticed, has been released. Hopefully, it restores enough patience to take you through the next two weeks or so.

    Happy pi day, everyone.

    Just because I haven't updated anything in a while

    It's that time of year. You know, that time of year when you suddenly realize that you have four assignments due in the next week, and three midterms the week after.

    Fortunately, I'm mostly through that. I have been writing steadily, mostly working on A Simple Reflection, tweaking the two unpublished chapters until I'm satisfied with the flow of them, and doing my damndest to get the thing on Equestria Daily. I have reasonably high hopes in the respect, if the pre-reader's last response was any indication.

    Bronius' absence has been a slight discouragement, but not a huge one. The chaps over in the IRC have been useful enough in providing second opinions for the moment, and in ripping apart my newer chapters for grammatical technicalities.

    Long story short, I haven't exactly been writing up a storm, but I've been working steadily.

    Also, I'm coming up to 100,000 views across all my stories. That's a huge milestone, more so than breaking 300 followers, and I'm trying to think of something suitably appropriate to do in celebration. Maybe I'll endeavour to have my new, most ambitious project to date released close to that time. Or I'll release a video that I might make with a few of my university buddies, which would mix Diet Coke, Mentos, subzero temperatures and a lot of messing around with chemical kinetics. Not pony-related, but it's SCIENCE, so I'm sure you can forgive it.

    Anyway, I'd ask you to sit tight, but those of you who've been with me a while know to be patient.

A minor accident at Sweet Apple Acres sends Big Macintosh to Ponyville in the middle of applebuck season. At first, things seem fine. But then some of the mares begin acting a little...oddly.

Then very oddly. Turns out every other stallion skipped town for a very good reason.

:rainbowlaugh:

That about sums it up.

>>48446

And I meant that in a good way.  I really enjoyed the story, although I had to try and keep myself from laughing too much.

Best. Fic. Ever.

As much as I seriously hate the idea that these ponies go into heat... this was amusing. :pinkiesmile:

DAMN! :eeyup: is a P.I.M.P BEEYYUUTTCCHHH!!!

>>48470 I second the motion. Even if a pimp should not spend most of his time fleeing sex.

Big Mac = king of swag. All that he needs now is a large hat, a floor length coat and a pimp cane. and maybe some running shoes.

lol this is great:rainbowlaugh:

:flutterrage: HE'S MINE BRATS!

:twilightangry2:NO, OBVIOUSLY, HE LIKES INTELLECTUALS!

:raritystarry:NO, HE LIKES UPPER-CLASS LADIES!

:pinkiecrazy:Kikiki...MINE!!!

:rainbowlaugh:HAHAHA!

:eeyup: My God....

:flutterrage: HE'S MINE BRATS!

:twilightangry2:NO, OBVIOUSLY, HE LIKES INTELLECTUALS!

:raritystarry:NO, HE LIKES UPPER-CLASS LADIES!

:pinkiecrazy::Kikiki...MINE!!!

:rainbowlaugh:HAHAHA!

:derpytongue2:MURRY ME!!

:eeyup: My God....

:trollestia: Problem?

NOW 20% WORSE FOR BIG MAC!!!!!!

omg.....AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

laughing at the end loooooooooooooooolz

:rainbowderp::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::trollestia:Nuff said

The hell man, first a beautifully written sadfic, and now a beautifully written comedy?  You sir are a pony of many talents.  Hopefully the next will be a shipfic!  Or a Grimdark....  :pinkiesick:  Anyway great work!  Best wishes.

i like it when people roleplay in comment pages

They make me look like an absolute not-a-faggot

btw this shit is cooooooool and shit.

>>48551How about a clopfic? :twilightsheepish:

this fic made me 20% more jovial. good show old chap.:moustache:

Only one way out Big Mac.[img]C:\Users\Zachary\Desktop\Pics\FJ\Gifs\131601157777.gif[/img]

AJ is messed up.. She was TRYING to get him set up! She's sick!

>>48565  If it is sappy and romantic I am fine with it.  :eeyup:

this sums up pretty much every fanfic involving big mac i've read

That, my friend, was bloody excellent. It was very well written and, quite frankly the idea of every single female going crazy for one male always appealed   to my twisted sense of humor.

Bwuahahaha X-D

And then Celestia walked in.

>>48585:pinkiegasp:I thought that that might have been the case too!

>>48585:pinkiegasp:I thought that that might have been the case too!

If I where big mac I'd be diving into that crowd.:raritywink:

At first I thought, ":rainbowhuh:, Rainbow Dash, aren't you supposed to be LOYAL to your friends and not betray them to a bunch of sex-crazed mares?"  Then I realized that those "sex-crazed mares" were Rainbow Dash's friends too, that she was closer to them than to Big Macintosh, and that therefore, she owed more loyalty to them.:moustache::trollestia:

:eeyup: :eeyup:, you should have just stuck with Fluttershy.  Now there is really only one thing left to say.  "Death by SNU-SNU!":trollestia::rainbowdetermined2::rainbowwild::pinkiecrazy::facehoof::twistnerd:

Oh, and this was Awsome!  Please keep the :rainbowlaugh: coming!

>>48646

Nice futurama ref, I was thinking that too :rainbowlaugh:

Funny, and fun!

well fu-

I guess he' scr-

damnit, i can't find the words without making a pun about his situation

Big Mac: aw shit...

That was amazingly amazing.

Just let it happen, Big Mac. Just let it happen.

WHOOOO!!!!

Poor :eeyup:, screwed either way.... Wait.

(pun not intended)

When It got to when Rainbow Dash opened the door, I actually said,"Oh shit." That was seriously a great ending.

...at least it was Lunaughty....it could be worse, it could be Molestia?!:trollestia:

I love Rainbow Dash's part in this, just perfect. :rainbowkiss:

...good thing big Mac had his benches veil o wait he didn't I told him to buy one but no he had to get 4 pairs of boots why mac WHYYYY...:eeyup:

Oh No!  poor Mac!  ... what happens next?  

Grand Master Pimp Macintosh :eeyup:

I don't think we recognize just how fuckin' alpha big mac is.....

>>48513 Eeyup:eeyup:

>>48782 I second that motion!:pinkiehappy:

Sounds like:eeyup:forgot to take his swag off.

Oh wow, this is hilarious. :rainbowlaugh:

I can't wait for the next chapter.
