    I'm alive. I'm coming back. I feel good.

    Hey guys!

    So if you're reading this, for some crazy reason you have the attention span of a zen monk, because you still remember I exist even though I haven't updated in months.

    So what's been going on for all those months?

    Well in my last blog post I mentioned that I was working, working out, and on a journey of self-betterment. I was putting myself through a summer of hell to improve myself physically and mentally.

    Am I done yet? No. Have I reached my first goal? YES!

    I told myself I wouldn't slow down or falter on my fitness plan until I reached 2 of 3 goals: being 200 lbs, under 20% body fat, or being able to do 10 pull-ups/chin-ups in a row. I have officially met the first 2 as of this morning! Yay! I'm technically not fat anymore! Or at least, am considered a medically healthy weight.

    "So you'll get back to writing 2 updates a week now right?"

    Wrong, enthusiastic internet stranger! Not because I don't love you guys, but because I have a few new challenges to the form arriving in my life.

    1: I'm keeping up with my fitness regime. I know that if I quit, everything I've worked so fucking hard for will go right down the drain.

    2: As also mentioned in the previous blog-post, I am not just quitting fat, I'm quitting all of neckbear-ism (I love you hairy fucks, it's just not my style, ja feel?) through all sorts of processes.

    I revamped my wardrobe, easy. I lost weight, not so easy, but it's done. So what's next? Social skills. Oh fuck me, this has been the hardest. I never thought I had social anxiety disorder (SAD), until I actually tried being social beyond my comfort zone. If you have SAD and want a rush of adrenalin forget roller coasters try holding a conversation with a complete stranger for at least 5 minutes. This is college though, and I need to get out there and meet people! So what have I been doing? Excessive self-induced exposure and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

    Guys, it sucks, don't get me wrong. It's horribly anxiety producing, you have to force yourself to do things you'd rather not, talk to people you'd rather not, and constantly self-monitor, while reminding yourself that no-one else is scrutinizing you the way you think they are. But it works. Slowly but surely, I've gotten out of my shell, and it's beautiful out here. My stress has gone down, I met new people, made new friends, got laid a few times (self-five), and just see the world as this new, friendlier place! But still, I do have to force myself to go and do things that make me uncomfortable, it's just taking less effort now, and makes me less anxious.

    3: For the first time, I'm going to be a big brother! No my mother's not pregnant, the other big bro/little bro thing. No not that one where I'm a good person who does that charity, the other other one. The fraternity one...where I force him to drink...well not really force, just...highly encourage. I know that just sounds like fun, and not a lot of responsibility, and that's what I thought too, but it turns out, I was wrong. I forgot how much my big bro had to do for me to help me through my 'associate' *cough*pledge*cough* process and that's another responsibility I have on my plate now.

    4: Last but not least, I have to apply for grad school soon, which is fucking terrifying and stressful and difficult. Lots of papers need to be written, lots of applications need to be filled out, upon tons and tons of essays and questions all for the sole purpose of determining if I've got enough of a brain to even try to get educated for my test to see if I'm even allowed to try my desired future career. And it's hard. This is the first level of the tournament and the pressure's already huge. So, that.

    So what does this big wall of text mean?

    TL;DR I'm back, but I'm still a busy, busy guy. I'm going to try and update Clockwork and No Bucks before the end of the month, and update at least monthly, hopefully bi-weekly after that. Thanks for sticking around.

    P.S. I realize I brag a LOT in this post, and I want you guys to know; this isn't me saying I am better than, or look down on anyone. These were all goals I set for myself and am proud of myself for achieving, and I don't expect anybody else to share all or any of these goals. This is me letting it all out, patting myself on the back, reminding myself that I'm doing well and not to give up. This is an update on my life for my readers who are kind enough to care, and you, dear reader, are awesome. I hope you find success in whatever endeavor you're on, and I hope I get to read all about it :)

    Keeping everyone in the loop

    For those of you who don't know me, here's some insight into my life (whether you want it or not).

    I have always been one of the biggest dudes anywhere I go, both in height and weight (6'6, 250+ lbs) but not really strong or in shape, just kinda...lumpy. I've had pretty bad body issues for most of my life and for a long time I had convinced myself that it didn't matter if I was strong or good looking, I was an intellectual (I thought) and tried to pride myself on that...looking back it's easy to say I was the epitome of neckbeard. I even owned a fedora. Guh.

    After watching the brony documentary on netflix I was really conflicted. It showed all of the amazing things we as a community have accomplished but in my opinion it didn't show us in the best light. It showed a bunch of...me. And I realized something, I didn't like me. I was annoying to watch and listen to and it really made me cringed when I realized how deep the similarities ran. I didn't look down on these people, I just realized they weren't who I wanted to be.

    I know that I can never change our fandom or have any significant impact on our public image, but I can control how I feel about myself. I was tired of being the stereotypical brony, I wanted to be me, who happened to be a brony and nobody would guess it unless they asked.

    At the beginning of May, I decided to make a change. I have been dieting, adjusting my wardrobe (arctic camo cargo shorts and 1 size too small Metallica shirts are not high fashion, as I came to realize) and really got into heavy lifting.

    Since the beginning of May I've really thrown myself into the world of fitness and improvement, both physically and mentally. I really had a big breakthrough today and though you guys may not care, I just wanted to put it out there because it feels so damn good. Through literally blood, sweat, tears, hard work, determination, and a healthy diet (there are no shortcuts guys, trust me) I have lost over 30 lbs of fat, put on 10 lbs of muscle, dropped 10% body fat, and have gotten stronger, faster, gotten a job, and finally had people start going "Damn V1NYL-5CR4TCH, you've lost weight!".

    It feels so good, and I just needed to scream "I CAN FINALLY SEE SOME GOD-DAMN PROGRESS!"

    If you read this far, thank you so much, for reading my stories, my blog posts, and deeming the mediocre fanfiction I try to make worthy of reading. You guys have been so awesome, and shown me that everybody can always be more than we are branded to be behind the keys of a keyboard. Thank you for the support, the feedback, and all the positivity. Please bare with me this summer while my writing is slow because I exhaust myself every day, waking up to go to the gym from 9 am till noon and working from 1 pm till 11 pm. On days off I'll try to update both Clockwork and No Bucks, but please understand it may very well slow down to once or twice a month (I don't get many days off, working at a restaurant).

    Thanks again.

    What am I doing?

    So it's been a while since I updated, and it may be a while still. This past week was greek week here at my university, and for those of you who don't know what that is, it's a campus wide 'take-over' by the greek community (fraternities and sororities) so needless to say I've been busy. Now that that's done, however, I now have a ton of studying to do, with finals being 2 weeks away. I'll definitly update far more regularly when finals are done, but until then, no promises. Sorry to leave you guys hanging, but college comes first

    That moment when...

    That moment when you have two stories being simultaneously featured and one of them is top. I'm really not trying to brag here but damn...

    This feels nice.

    Oh, and the stories are almost complete opposites.

    New story!

    I'm doing a new story to try and convince me to come back and write more often, both on the new story, and Clockwork, which I have big plans for. Anyway, it's about my favorite bar in Athens, Ohio, and our favorite ponies, and white might happen should they mix. I introduce, White Pony Wasted.

I have no idea how long I've been here, this gap between the seconds. It could be minutes, days, ages, I can't tell. I can never tell.

Maybe that's for the best.

The sun never rises, but it never sets. The clock never ticks, and I never rest. I never hunger, nor thirst. I certainly never tire.

It makes it much harder to tell the time I spend here...

Yet it never feels like none at all...

Very intriguing. Tracking and upvoting this, for sure. :twilightsmile:

>>1003243

So appropriate. So very, very appropriate.

Written by someone who is certainly no stranger to poetics. Bravo. I hope the story to follow is well done.

>>1003542 thanks, correct me if i'm wrong but isnt that the ultimate weapon that vanitus used?

>>1006283

I have no idea, I need more context to give you an answer.

Vanitus from what? The only Vanitus I know of is from the Kingdom Hearts univer--------

Oh. My profile pic. You're talking about my profile pic. Yes that is the X-Blade, used by Vanitus in his final battles against Ven and Aqua. Im not really all that surprised that no-one had commented on it previously, it's sort of obscure. So thank you, and congratulations on being the second person to know what my profile pic is. (the first was me.

)

... Not to be a jerk, but can you learn the proper use of to and too, and they're and their? You made that mistake here and there throughout the chapter, and it's annoying. 'too' means as well, or 'too' much or little of something, an amount. They're is they are, while their is possessive. (Sorry for shortness and not showing where it happened. I've got a massive headache atm...)

>>1006576

Well sir, after re-reading several times I have found one incorrect use of "they're". I have left it unedited so that the story remains un-updated prior to your comment. If you can find any other mistake that I have missed, please point it out specifically, as the to/too mistake (which I can't find) is driving me nuts!

>>1008125 Found it! Man, took me a bit to find it as well! xD

Even when I change something in the gaps, to them it's a hiccup, a jolt, a shiver. Nothing they can't shrug off and go about their day. Even those who notice choose to ignore it. It happens to fast for them to comprehend.

It happens TOO fast. :3

(And sorry again. My head was REALLY hurting when I wrote that... :twilightblush: It's down to a slight throb now, so I'm feeling a LOT better! Forgive meh?)

>>1008252

No need for forgiveness, criticism is welcome!

BWAHH...duhduhduhduhduhduhduhduhBWAHH

You're supposed to upshift before you hit the rev limiter, not three quarters of a second afterward.

I really like the concept of this story. Looking forward to seeing how this will develop. Some grammatical errors though, mostly plurals. One's instead of ones.

Dude, your story is awesome and you should feel awesome!

Intriguing...

Do continue.

I really hope that ending means that this isn't a joke story, because I love the premise. What would an individual be like if he/she had all the time in the world to do literally everything? Would they be disconnected from the world because they've experienced everything that there is to experience, or would they be something else completely? I wanna see the possibilities.

>>1033339

it's definitely not the end, I just haven't had time to write recently

I can't wait to read more of this story. I don't know what it is, but there's something this story has that other's don't... Oh well, keep up the good work!:derpytongue2:

...this is awesome in a can! i want MOAR.

I almost feel inspired to write a similar story, but that'd be just plain copying, wouldn't it?

Loving the story. Keep on writing!

Hmmm. I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention yet. Some minor grammatical and spelling errors. But the OC is put down very well.

I'm really looking forward to future installments. Let me know if you need a proofreader or editor of some kind.

I'm... not quite sure what to say about this story. Its odd, and strange, but most of all genuinely interesting.

Keep up the great work :D!

i really like this one. and want more.

the time between seconds, i love the thought of it. where the entire world stops, where everything is peaceful, i'd like to be able to do that. but alas i am but a simple human so i must be content with this story. Keep up the good work my friend.

I demand continuation! ....if you want to, that is...:fluttershysad:

The intrigue and curiosity continues. More please. :twilightsmile:

I wish I could make another person appreciate the magic and wonder that exist within an infinite amount of ever passing moments.

2 errors here: it should be pony, not person. Also exists, not exist.

This is an AWESOME concept, I want MOAR! :flutterrage:


Sorry, I'm more voracious than twilight when it comes to reading :twilightsmile:

This, my friend, is a wonderful story so far. I cannot wait for more. Please... go on.

This actually reminds me of Doctor Who... in a way.

And myself... in others.

It actually brought the idea of "stopping time" into a new light for me. Normally I would say I would use the ability for personal gain, but drawing everything around you? Brilliant...

Reminds me of the fact that I should probably try to draw more.

Thank you for the new found inspiration.

Keep writing, my good sir. And have a few mustaches too.

Boop.

this is not time travel but a tale of nonparallel sadness, well except maybe by background pony.

>>2706089  Yes but they don't compare. After all this guy here has the potential to be a bigger gary-stu than the pony form that story. But it has been okay so far  so i couldn't say.

#46 · 71w, 3d ago · · · Solitude ·

wow this is really good! :pinkiehappy:

the naughty side of my brain tells me that this could evolve into a clopfic at anytime :rainbowlaugh: get it? cuz he stops - you know what nevermind :pinkiecrazy:

Two parallel rectangles, the seconds, the infinitesimal frames of reality. He is the one who bridges the gaps, the One who resides in them, and the One to command their power.

#48 · 71w, 3d ago · 4 · · Solitude ·

In the cracks between reality, there is no sound. Frozen in time he stands, watching, waiting, admiring the beauty of the world around him, yet in the silence and solitude, he finds no comfort.

#49 · 71w, 2d ago · · · Solitude ·

Hmmm.... Interesting concept. A pony with the power to slip through the spaces between seconds, as if he was "hiding" from the laws of space and time; I wouldn't be surprised if this is how Pinkie gets around. The writing style is definitely different than anything I've read as well, focused on his thoughts and dialogue with little to no imagery. The story, with the way it's told, has no need for much imagery though. Overall, I like it. Simple as that. 3.75 Derpy Muffins out of 5. You deserve a corn dog (fresh from the carnival, I might add) for your penmanship, or take one of Derpy's muffins if she doesn't mind.

#50 · 71w, 2d ago · · · Solitude ·

I'll read this later. If I can judge by the description, I think Stephen King did something kinda-sorta-like it before in a short story.
