    Gods I'm Jealous

    All my friends are complaining about getting tons of messages about things moving from bookshelf to bookshelf... and I got like 10.  Seriously?  :(

    State of the Writer: October

    I figure it is about time I become a FiMFiction author stereotype and start doing these kinds of blog posts.

    First off, I am officially going to take Persona MLP off of hiatus!  I've been planning stuff again recently, and even have been doing some writing.  This is despite me getting into both Skyrim and Smash Bros for 3DS.  As much as I love the game, I can only play it in 2-3 hour bursts, strangely enough.

    I have no idea when the next chapter will come out because this is going to be a busy month.  Borderlands The Pre-Sequel comes out in less than a week, and I'm sure I'll be playing a lot of the next Civ game with my friends when that comes out, and Smash Bros for Wii U comes out late November, so there's a lot going on in gaming that holds my interest.  I can take an hour or two out of most of my days to write... probably.  Work has been scheduling me for a lot of hours, and every time I try to offer someone my day off (which people usually are willing to take), something comes up which brings me right back in.

    TL;DR I'm not dead, neither is my Persona crossover, and Smash Bros is really fun.

    A Big Decision

    I'm going to take a hiatus from writing as a whole.  And I don't know if I'll come back.  For those who favorited The Nightmare Hour, just find the underline.

    I've been thinking if I want to do this or not since the last blog post, and pretty much to gauge whether or not I should, I did something I don't usually do: play lots of video games.

    Sounds stupid, right?  Like, when I'm not writing or checking tumblr or youtube, what am I doing?  Probably playing video games.  But it hasn't been.  Not for at least 6 months.

    For these six months that I was sitting around not writing the last two chapters of The Nightmare Hour, except for the short period of time that Dark Souls 2 came out... I would always find myself in a weird limbo.  I have a document open, sitting there, and I don't want to look at it cause the idea of writing just stresses me out too much, and I won't play video games cause I'll feel horrid guilt because it isn't something I'm supposed to be doing.  In my mind, I was supposed to be writing as much as possible.

    And now I'm really sick of this feeling.  And of course, lo and behold, I have been playing lots of video games all week, and hugely enjoying it.  So I need to take a break.

    Still sounds stupid?  Let me level with you all some more.  This gets a little personal now but I don't mind that.

    In my third semester of college (and probably my second one as well), I had depression and anxiety (this would have been Fall 2010).  This wrecked my grades, leaving me with literally a 0 on that semester because all I did was play League of Legends and eat and hang out with friends that also played League of Legends.  I didn't go to classes, do laundry.  I was barely living.  I dropped out (or rather, simply did not sign up for classes and never looked back), and then like two months later I found mlp, and a month after that, cranked out all of Epiphany and a lot of Out of the Blue, which was a lot of words in like two and a half months.  And basically from then on, my writing pace has been entirely inconsistent, usually only writing when I come up against deadlines, or came up with a crazy idea I really cared about, and wrote it up in a week.  In fact, The Nightmare Hour is the closest thing I had to any kind of consistent writing schedule, and I totally screwed that up eventually.

    This is why I have a job at McDonalds right now, instead of continuing school.  College scares the shit out of me and I can't deal with the stress again.  Even staying in a community college for a few years to get my GPA above 2 and get my AA degree was doing shit to my mind that I really, really think was bad for me.

    It's long been my own opinion that, as much as I like writing as a hobby, it seems to only pop up when I'm depressed.  I had a big writing phase in HS as well that I just stopped, for no apparent reason at all, other than I think I came out of that as well.  I think keeping up this pattern isn't healthy.

    So I'm going to try something else.  It'll be hard, but I want to do it eventually (and I'll say what it is if it actually goes anywhere).  So for now, I'm going to not write until I know if I really like writing or not, because if it's just my coping mechanism, I sure as hell don't want to keep it around.

    Sorry folks, but consider The Nightmare Hour on indefinite Hiatus.

    And if you think I'm going about this the wrong way, I'd be happy to hear if you think I should keep writing, cause I'm all out of answers.

    A few words

    Not gonna be able to post a new story for a while.  While I have made the effort to write down an outline, I have not actually written anything, mostly due to a combination of my roommate doing housework and my work schedule both screwing me out of any sleep, so I lost over 9 days of like, being able to do anything.  I haven't even played any videogames.

    Despite that, it may be a LONG while before I post something new (either the Faith sequel or more Persona MLP).  I just need a few days to think about stuff, and then I can be more specific.

    Just a heads up!

    I'm doing another writing prompt thing!  This means that I'll be delaying the next chapter of The Nightmare Hour until next month probably.

    And in the mean time... well, there's a reason I tagged Faith in this blog post.  Just keep your heads up and alert next weekend.

In hopes of breaking her normal routine, Twilight decides to make an effort to get away from her books and spend as much time with her friends as possible, dedicating one whole day to each of them.

Though nothing is as it seems. While spending a day with Bubble Berry, she receives a letter from Princess Celestia informing her that something sinister and magical is afoot in Ponyville, causing that day to be repeated. But with Bubble Berry asking her out on a date that very same day, Twilight may not have time to find the source of the anomaly while she comes to terms with the feelings developing between herself and one of her closest friends.

This story was a part of the FimFiction LOEG Story Swap of August 2012, and originally appeared on Pen Stroke's account

A somehow R63 Berry and regular Twi in the same universe?


*Rushes to read it*

... WOW... That was pretty darn good! (Don't know why I was expecting anything else, though. xD One single mistake I saw in passing was Spike being lower cased in the beginning, something about spike's something. Sorry I'm too lazy, but a simple Ctrl + F should find it. :3)

Thanks for a great start to a PinkLight fic! I mean, I know it says complete, but it COULD be continued, whether directly, or indirectly, such as somepony ELSE finding Nivek, etc. I know you're busy, so I won't be crushed if you never make a sequel, but there's something to think about if you have the time! :3 Thanks for the great read!

Wait is this ground hog day cross over?

#3 · 117w, 3h ago · · ·

Before I read... if Pinkie is Berry in this, shouldn't it be tagged AU?

EDIT: and now it makes sense. That was cute and heartwarming.

#4 · 117w, 3h ago · · ·

I never heard of this, is it one of your new stories (i.e. not featured on EQD)


I'm still going to read it either way

#5 · 117w, 3h ago · · ·

>>1027428 Read the story, there's a plausible explanation for it.

*stands on table with noose around neck* I will never be a good author like Pen Stroke i might as well end it all

I guess in a universe with griffins, dragons, magic, and other assorted mythical fun, there could be genies as well.

Nivek, huh...interesting

If only we had vendors selling casual all-powerful magical beings:raritydespair:

#12 · 117w, 2h ago · · ·

interesting read to say the lest.

Now I am going to sleep. 3:10 am.

Your name.....is sexy..:rainbowkiss:

#14 · 117w, 1h ago · · ·

Pen Stroke, I do not read shipping/Romance fics very often, but since you wrote it I was willing to give it a shot.

Conclusion: It's on par with your other works. :scootangel:

#15 · 117w, 1h ago · · ·

Straight TwiBerry... that ends with Twinkie. Brilliant! :yay: A much-loved pair, done well.

#16 · 117w, 1h ago · · ·

That wasn't half bad. The whole 'Kevin backwards' thing was kinda... iunno. I reckon there was more you could have done with a Genie's name. This fandom spawns a billion punny ponified names.

#17 · 117w, 1h ago · · ·


...was actually pretty adorable. I rather enjoyed the groundhog/genderbend combination story...

#18 · 117w, 1h ago · · ·

I haven't read the story yet,but-BUBBLE BERRY IS THE BEST GENDERBEND_MANESIX.After him is Butterscotch.

I read this because, well it was you. And this was just a good as I thought it would be. LOVE IT! :twilightsmile::pinkiehappy::pinkiegasp:

#20 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Pen Stroke, why do I love every freaking thing you write?!?!?! Another original idea with a happy ending. Keep it up, Pen.

This was that good.

#27 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Lemme be up with ya. I'm a white Southern Republican, so you probably had my political beliefs regarding homosexuality figured out at "white".

And I love this fic. Awesomely done. Is there an applause switch on this laptop or something? *fidgets with it* Like I said, white Southerner, machinery's not a forte. Guess I'll settle for moustaches.


Moustache, moustache, moustache. Damn that word is fun to say out loud.

:twilightangry2: IT'S OVER 9000

Whoo, okay, got that out of my system. This is a great shipfic... And somehow I'd think Pinkie would behave exactly like this if the opportunity presented itself. The only thing I could possibly gripe about was how quickly Twilight accepted what happened. If it were me, I'd be a tad concerned that Pinkie's response to rejection was to reshape reality to her whim.

Still a great read! Am I watching you yet? I think I should. :twilightsmile:

#29 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

This story was awesome!:rainbowkiss:

#30 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Reading this story was a time well spent.

#31 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Oh man, that was awesome. Like hit a part of my soul.

#32 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

What did I just Read? :pinkiegasp:

#33 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Okay, that was really fun and really sweet. +Thumb :twilightsmile:

#34 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

First, I'm glad you didn't make an over 9000 joke! Second, in my mind, Norm Macdonald voiced the genie. Very cute fic. Greened thumbed!

#35 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Adding to read later, this sounds good. :trixieshiftright:

#36 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

So what was the second wish? :trixieshiftright:

#37 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

*taps hoof to her chin*

... This requires more studying.

And perhaps a fic like the current 'reversal' fic where Dusk Shine is with the 5 mares, only with Twiight with the 5 Stallions. Maybe.

#38 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1027601:ajbemused:Stop mocking me!!!!!!!!!!!!:raritycry:

#39 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

This got featured?:rainbowhuh:Notsuprised.:trixieshiftright:

#40 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

1 thing to say: BRILLIANT:pinkiehappy:

#41 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

So I guess it's a good thing that I kept reading Bubble Berry's lines in Pinkie Pie's voice?

#42 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

I :heart: it! It's so awesome!

#43 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

them feels :heart:

#46 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Pre read comment: Whats up with the influx of all the "singular R63" stores that hit featured lately?

#47 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·


I believe that the Second wish was to replay the day...

#48 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

Great story.

I really felt for all the characters.

Grammar seemed good.

Altogether, an interesting premise!

I know it's Completed, but a sequel would certainly be welcome here...

Maybe more Genie antics?

Pinkie and Twi having matured in their relationship?

In any case, this was excellent.

That is all.

Journcy Out.


#50 · 116w, 6d ago · · ·

O loved it! So awesome. Twinkie is my favorite ship, and I like how you pulled this off.
