    Ranty rant

    Just a heads up, this blog post is mainly me complaining about how terrible my life is, so if that doesn't interest you... Uh, go do something you enjoy doing? It's not like I'm holding you hostage here, you know. Go have fun!

    I haven't made a blog post in quite a while. I've been wanting to, though. Problem is, I've been feeling like absolute shit for the past few weeks. Last week, school started again, and I was so nervous that it made me feel sick, despite the meds I'm taking. On top of that, it turns out I've spent something like the past half year doing absolutely nothing about it, because apparently, being told you're getting a psychiatrist assigned to you doesn't mean anything. Just the same old talking, even though the conclusion months ago was that talking wasn't going to get me anywhere.

    It feels so stupid, too. My coach/confidant at school even told me he was incredibly surprised I managed to achieve what I did last year, but this year, I can't even so much as get ready for school in the morning or I'm stressing out. I'm just going to one class per week and my disorder starts acting up. It pisses me off even more than usual because the project for this quarter is gaming, something I've been looking forward to since last year. And now I can't even participate in it! I did take some initiative and started working on a design document, but it's actually kind of tough if you're not in a group. It's hard to work on it, because thinking about it reminds me of school, and that gets me all worked up...

    On top of that, I feel so crappy for not having written or uploaded anything here for about a year now. I have no idea why so many of you are still following me, to be honest. I expected a huge drop, but there's only more of you know. God knows how badly I want to write, but just can't. And when I do put some words down, it turns out like... Well, that last blog post was far more shitty and judgmental than I had intended beforehand. I'd intended a much more neutral and understanding view instead of the bullshit I wrote. If anyone felt offended by it, I offer my genuine apologies.

    In somewhat more positive news, I'm working on putting together a panel for Hearth's Warming Con. It's going to be about writing and stuff, but no further details yet. I'm gonna do it together with Hyfnae and Rarity Belle. Here's to hoping that'll be fun, at least.

    And if all else fails, I can still blast my way through Dark Souls 2 without much difficulty. That's something, right?

    America is weird

    A blog post? And it isn't some useless update or me whining about mental issues? WHOOOOOAAAAAA

    Ahem. As you all know (I think), I'm from Europe. The Netherlands, to be precise. A rather quiet little country that does not face many direct threats or other nonsense involving national security. What it does have, is a few centuries' worth of economic knowledge and having the rest of the world by its balls. Or something, a really long time ago.

    A lot of the fandom is America-based. Quite obvious, as most sellers like We Love Fine are only based in America, most brony cons are in America, et cetera. For people like me, that can be a huge hassle! Long, expensive travels to get to those cons, annoying time zone nonsense and exorbitant shipping costs. Also, you guys tend to get stuff earlier than we do, which makes me grumble quite often.

    In the last few years, I've had an increasing amount of exposure to the American culture; even though we're all part of 'the West', we couldn't be more apart in terms of culture. This became really obvious during my stay in Baltimore and Washington, D. C. Even though they're enormous cities that would occupy a significant part of the Netherlands, and certainly have way taller buildings than anything we have here, when I walked around there, I had a sense of... wrongness, shall I say.

    When you're walking around in the big Dutch cities, like Rotterdam or Amsterdam, you'll see that everything is pretty modern; we're almost always building new stuff (Utrecht is terrible in this regard) and constantly renewing old things. Not because we want to look cool and stuff, but because the old stuff just sucks and the ground is terrible for building on, so we need to renew a lot. Also, it just looks cool. When you're in the city centre, chances are every single street will be well-kept, and even back alleys will look at least decent.

    Not so much in the U.S., though. Sure, there are large, beautiful buildings all around. But if you look at any side but the front, you'll notice that these aren't in the best of states. The roads leading to the back of these buildings look downright frightening! Straight out of a thriller or horror movie. And that's not even mentioning the homeless; while you're bound to run into some of them over here, there's a downright massive amount of them in American cities.

    These things made me take a better look at American culture and its differences with my own European culture. There's the obvious, big differences: America is one big country made up of fifty smaller ones, and Europe is more of a coalition of several small countries. They look out for each other, but are otherwise not linked by anything. There's also gun laws, of course. I know far too little about it to have a proper opinion on it, so I'll refrain from stating anything. I'd like to get a better view on it before saying anything. What I do know, is that it's rather complicated, as there's a big market for that kind of stuff, apparently.

    I can bet a lot of people will sigh and prepare for the eventual 'Ha-ha all Americans are fat' stereotyping. Sadly, I'm going to dive into that first, because oh my god is it right. When I was in San Francisco for Babscon, my father jokingly told me to never call him fat again because he's treading the line between healthy and very slightly overweight. This because we saw some truly amazing/gross people unlike any we'd ever seen before in any place in the world. I know a lot of people hate that view of the U.S., but there's simply no denying it.

    It became obvious why it is the way it is really quickly: the serving sizes for food are simply ridiculous. If I go to a restaurant and buy a decent meal in my home country, I can expect to spend quite a few bucks. Go to America, however, and I can get the same kind of meal, a whole size bigger, and for the same price in dollars. This means you can subtract about a fifth of the price to convert to euros. Food is so cheap over there!

    That, in turn, made me wonder why there are so many poor people in the U.S., as is constantly made obvious over the news... until you realize that people just get paid like absolute crap in the U.S. Unpaid internships are apparently common for you guys, but they're heavily frowned upon over here. On top of that, we work forty hours per week; any more, and you get paid extra. You're also considered to be really devoted to your job if you do that.

    In comparison to the Netherlands, America is almost like a third-world country. Peoply live in shitty circumstances, are heavily overworked, and many people over there just felt... miserable, so to say. There's a sort of atmosphere in the streets that feels a lot more negative than here.

    Of course, the explanation for this is pretty simple: the U.S.A. is simply in a bad spot. A government that can't really do anything due to being an oligarchy decided by the wealthy, the constant looming of foreign threats, the incredibly large internal conflicts on laws (think gay marriage, gun rights, et cetera, all stuff people can't agree about), and more. It's such a shame, too, because there's definitely the potential to be a great country. Or possibly, in the future, a collection of fifty pretty okay countries, I don't know.

    So yeah. America is really strange from a European's perspective. We're often made to think that we're all part of the western, advanced civilization, but nothing could be more wrong, as differences run rampant in about every single aspect. Not saying all of those are bad, but, y'know... weird. At least to someone with my perspective.

    On the other hand, us Europeans came up with all folklore concerning the fey/fae/whatever, and that stuff is way crazier. I could go on a tangent, but let's just say that fairies are jerks. Except changelings, but on the other hand, yeah, original changelings are pretty terrible too.

    Back from Germany! Germane-y?

    Look, I came home in the middle of the night after driving for a really long time, I'm just gonna make bad jokes.

    Galacon was pretty cool! We had a lot of trouble getting there in the first place, because me and my friends are a bunch of idiots, but we made it anyway! The trip was filled with a lot of bad jokes, a lot of shouting DUCKTALES WOOHOO and translating English songs to Dutch and making them sound absolutely terrible. The way back was comparable, but way shorter and with one guy having lost his voice. Didn't prevent us from laughing our asses off.

    Anyway, Galacon was pretty much just like Bronycon and Babscon, but smaller. And more German. I only went to two events: the opening ceremony, which had a horribly jarring stylistic error ("The panel is almost starting soon!" MY STYLE SENSE IS GOING HAYWIRE), and the Creative Writing Workshop, which was very, very subdued until I presented a terrible half-theory while making dumb jokes. We also concluded that green is evil, and therefore Sweetie Belle is evil. Just sayin'.

    Aside from that, I pretty much did a whole lot of horsing around, playing Cards Against Humanity and other random stuff. Most of the fun is hanging around with other people, after all!

    So yeah, next con I'm going to is probably Hearth's Warming Con, which is like a forty minute drive from where I live. I might even talk to the people who run it to see if I can do a panel or something. As for now, I'm going to chill out and stuff, write some nonsense and some makes-slightly-moresense and have fun and stuff.

    Quick Update

    Long time no see, everyone!

    So I've been away for uh... Quite a while! I've been very busy with school and trying to cope with my anxiety disorder. I'm happy to say I can continue on to the second year of my study! The anxiety is still pretty bad, and I'm not making much progress with it. But hey, I've got a lot of free time now. I'm heading off to Gran Canaria today, to just chill out and have a nice time. I'm bringing my laptop with me, so I can write a bit. I even managed to write two pages earlier this week! I hope I can get something done in the next week or so.

    So uh, yeah. In the meantime, have this thing I made, a recording of one of my favourite boss fights of all time:

This story is a sequel to Thrown Abroad

After the events of Thrown Abroad, Suncloak the changeling is happily living in Ponyville. Well, sort of. He needs the love of friendship to stay alive! Luckily, there's plenty of ponies who would want to be friends with him. But let's not forget about other changelings here...

You know, this would be a lot easier if the whole concept of friendship wasn't so needlessly difficult.

Well, it took a bit of time, but it's here! Apologies for the long wait, I suddenly got my hands on lots of video games. Video games that needed lots of playing.

If you find any errors, feel free to PM or comment, so I can fix them. It's much appreciated! I could always have missed little things.

I hope people will enjoy this as much as they enjoyed Thrown Abroad!

Yes! The long awaited sequel to Thrown Abroad!

Keep up the good work pal.

Instant fave and thumbs up.

But why did Suncloak have the strange feeling that this was only the beginning of a whole lot of craziness?

And why do i have the feeling that you underestimate the craziness?

I hope he is smart enough to tell the Mare 6 about this, they may not be able to help, but at last they know whats going on and are not scared when they find out Suncloak meets a group of channelings every week.

this comment is dedicated to the poor mailbox who suffered a heavy assault and still stood tall.

Very good. Only one error I noticed. Where the changeling says "I resemble that remark." it should say resent, not resemble

5/5

>>1039492

Intentional. It's why the other changelings have such trouble not bursting into laughter!

Oh okay, he's just stupid, lol I kind of thought that, but wanted to let you know just in case. Still, awesome story man, keep up the good work. I'm gonna go re-read Thrown Abroad in the meantime! :yay:

YES! INSTA-UP VOTE.

Good good, continue with the hilarity, it amuses me so.

ooh this is gonna be good:twilightsmile:

p.s. suncloak be trollin:trollestia:

This is going to be more than great story.

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

5 moustaches for you.

Atleast ! Just upload new episodes with some normal time delay

But Derpy maried with Doctor xD ah whatever still good story and waiting for more

You, my good sir get an insta-fav!

Have a Spike. :moustache:

It's nice to see you've posted another story and that it's of supreme quality as previous.

By the way, getting Suncloak into teaching other changelings how to act around ponies is hilarious

moreover gives many possibilities of extending the plot.

Oh Lyra.....you and your lobsters........but it is true.  They can dry out really quickly if you don't water them regularly.  Especially in the summer.  I almost lost the one I keep in my car during my trip to the beach because I didn't drive for a few days after getting there.

A fantastic first chapter for what will most likely be a fantastic new story.  As a new author, you set the bar for yourself very high with "Thrown Abroad".  This, of course, means we expect great things from this and all your future stories, and so far you have not disappointed :yay:.

Edit:  and grats on the feature box as well.

Yesssssssss

...

:coolphoto: we need more.

This is going to be so much fun..... :rainbowlaugh:

54 straight Likes and counting? No Dislikes?

The story is good one! :pinkiegasp:

Was grinning like idiot most of the story. :rainbowlaugh:

Very nice - FIRE THE MOAR-TAR!

Let the insanity begin! Muahahahahaha! :pinkiecrazy:

Oh, and Suncloak, I feel your pain (literally) about the music. I like music, but make it too loud (like it is at every dance in existence) and... yeah. :twilightoops:

>>1028575 you are forgiven ( I got my hands on Wow and I couldn't update my stories :P)

Thrown Abroad sequel? :raritystarry:

Most excellent. :rainbowkiss:

Suncloak should inform Twilight at least about this, that way in the event if everything goes to Tartarus the mane six will not think Suncloak sold them out.

He's is back! And he's more ling-like than ever!

Suncloak in...... My Little Changeling..............  Friendship is Weird

With many numbered changelings with amazing professions like scouting,military strike force, and accounting?

Coming soon to your FimFiction Favorite Star.

:rainbowlaugh:

Thoughts after reading: MOST excellent. :rainbowlaugh:

I can't wait for more! :derpytongue2:

“Friendship is weird.

ah ah, there it is.

                            

Been looking forward to this for a good while and was by no means disappointed. Can't wait for more. :pinkiehappy:

>>1028575 Steam summer sale?

>>1040188 the MOAR-TAR is prepped and ready to fire sir. At what distance should we aim for?

>>1040683

Surprisingly, no! A lot of other games, though.

Upvote and tracking with the power of a thousand suns!

Sequel to one of my favorite Changeling fics of all time?

Don't mind if I do :pinkiehappy:

>>1028575 Hold those apologies, it was well worth the wait!

I'm enjoying your characterization of the... well, characters.  This plot of a bunch of changelings attempting to learn the ways of friendship is quite neat, and will doubtlessly be very entertaining and satisfying.  Can't wait for more!

Said vine coiled up, and with a burst of green flame around it, changed into a very small changeling. “Aww.”

#145 is adorable! :D

Yay, another awesome story to track. Also, the premise looks like it could be just as good as Thrown Abroad, as long as it's developed :pinkiehappy:

“Are you just here to insult me or can tell you to buzz off and leave?”

I think theres an error here somewhere...

awesome story, cant wait for more! :pinkiehappy:

big grats for getting featured:pinkiehappy:

'I just have to water my lobster!'

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Now you've gone and made me want to hear the FiM main theme performed in the changeling style.

'I resemble that remark!'

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Haven't seen this one in a while.

This is boss. The sequel is shaping up nicely!

Oh, and if the group of changelings goes all Harmony eventually, they definitely should become the Elements of Chocolate.

horray!! a sequel to Thrown Abroad! here :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

"Hey, I resemble that remark!"

Hm... TMNT Turtles Forever reference?

Heh heh.

So wait, this means that Suncloak is the new Rainbow Dash?:rainbowhuh:

Yay for sequels. This is quite promising. I really like the setup of this chapter. I can't wait to see what adventures happen with these characters. Also, we all know Bon Bon can't be that normal. She must be hiding something! :pinkiecrazy:

*changeling_trollfaic.jpg*

Yay, more Suncloak! This one, and the one with Wubsy are good Changeling stories. =3

"Sheesh, all these ponies look so much alike. Why couldn’t they all be more unique, like changelings?"

:rainbowlaugh:

"And, well, free candy. That made everyling look good in the changeling’s book."

:pinkiegasp: Suncloak, get away from that van! You can't trust just anypony who waves a bag of sweets in your face!

"But why did Suncloak have the strange feeling that this was only the beginning of a whole lot of craziness?"

"First Chapter Intuition", I'm guessing.

>>1041488

Elements of Chocolate, eh? That would be... let's see... Milk, Dark, White, Semi-Sweet... er... Hot Fudge... uh... Okay, I'm out of chocolate types. If we assume one Element per changeling, then what would the final three Elements be?

>>1041935 I have no idea! Gotta ask Suncloak. It's him who came up with the Elements of Chocolate after being hit on the head one time too many, after all.

>>1041935

How about Schocolate! Chocolate energy! It's like putting Chocolate into ELECTRICAL STORM!

And seriously, I can't wait for new chapters!
