    Rant

    I'm sure a great many of you are purveyors of the fine arts. Writing, drawing, painting, singing, making music, whatever your flavour, I want to talk to you. People are going to tell you to study things that will get you a decent job, even if those things aren't in the direction you want to go. People will tell you that having dreams is nice and all, but you need to take the path of least resistance and get a nine-to-five. People will tell you that in the real world, having passion for a craft is not enough, and that everyone needs to face reality and join the daily grind sooner or later.

    Those people are wrong.

    Notice that the most they give you to hope for is a comfortable life. The vast majority of people aren't wealthy, after all, so the best an average person can strive for is an average life. You can be one of the millions of average folk out there who work all day and watch TV in the evening before bed. Lucky you!

    But personally, I would rather take my chances. I would rather study the things that interest me so that when I'm an old man I won't think "Well my accounting degree got me an okay job..." and instead think "Oh man, my days in uni studying lit and writing and meeting other writers and forming my own style and embracing the things I love most were amazing!"

    I want to know, when I'm looking at a mirror as I lay on my deathbed, that the person looking back at me didn't waste their younger years doing things they hated and working at unsatisfying jobs. I want to see some old twat writer grinning like an idiot, ideas still churning behind crazy eyes, knowing not a single second was wasted.

    So I'd like to ask you something. What kind of person do you want to be? Do you want to be an average person who lived an average life and left an average gravestone? Or do you want to be the artist with the crazy eyes, that weird kid who strayed from the path and found something beautiful?

    It isn't about being remembered. It isn't about leaving a legacy. It's not even about the chance of becoming successful because of your art. It's about realising you only have one life and you don't have nearly enough time to waste living it 'normally'.

    Good lord!

    That's a lot of followers!

    In celebration of this crazy occasion, I'd like to ask for your opinions on something. A lot of people come to me for writing advice, and while I don't claim to be the most skilful writer, I do know some useful bits of general knowledge. Would anyone be interested in occasional blog posts where I address the most common problems budding writers encounter?

    Love, Dawn

    Where is the next chapter?

    I'm not dead, nor have I been incapacitated. Every time I set a schedule, life makes it abundantly clear that it disapproves.

    My apologies for the lack of updates. I've been so frustrated with having no time or energy to write that I cut myself off from a few things, this site being one of them.

    The chapter is coming, but I'm not going to be so foolish as to estimate when. I ask for your patience and understanding.

    On that note, I'd like to make a note here about some rather mean PMs and comments I've received. I'm happy you're enjoying the story so much that the absence of new chapters really agitates you, but come on. I write this for fun, this is not my day job, nor is it a legally binding contract. I can't put this above the rest of my life. I know most of you are very cool about it, but the mean ones really get to me.

    Anyway, love you all and hope to give you something soon <3

    University Days next chapter RESULTS

    The poll results are in and out of the 2,000+ readers, almost 300 voted. It's cool, I ignore blog posts too.

    Anyway, the decision has been made and the next chapter will cover the day before Octavia's birthday (AKA awkward snowy cuteness).

    Now, I noticed something about those who voted for the other option. They seem to be under the impression that this will just be a fluffy, pointless chapter that is basically fan service. If it's my fault you think that, I apologise, for I have misled you. The chapter will develop Octavia and Vinyl's relationship in a very special way, one that I've been waiting to get to for some time. After some careful thinking, I believe the time is right. Here's hoping it gives them strength to stand against the mother, eh?

    University Days next chapter - YOU decide

    So, I'm at a bit of an impasse.

    You see, I mentioned a while ago that I have an adorable Hearth's Warming Eve chapter planned. I originally intended to do Octavia's birthday (and consequently her mother's) arc before Christmas arrived in the real world. What I failed to anticipate was just how slowly the next chapters would come along. You all know the reasons, university etc. but that doesn't change the fact that I'm a little behind where I thought I would be.

    And here lies our problem.

    In the story, it is the middle of the year. Hearth's Warming, like Christmas, happens at the end of the year amongst the snow and merriment. Having a random Hearth's Warming chapter out of nowhere would be a little silly because nothing has been leading up to it.

    Thankfully, I was about to introduce snow anyway, so at least we have that part covered. I also think Octavia's mother could be en-route during the next chapter, which means I have one chapter before the birthday and her arrival.

    So my question to you is this: What would you prefer I do?

    1. Do a lovely snowy chapter about the day before Octavia's birthday (basically a holiday special without explicitly saying it's a holiday special)

    OR

    2. Skip straight to the birthday and ignore the holiday season entirely.

    I like involving you guys because you've all been so good to me, so I leave it up to you. Option 1 will give you a cute chapter at the cost of delaying the birthday for a chapter, while option 2 will make the Hearth's Warming chapter happen when it reaches that stage in-universe at the cost of being completely unrelatable.

    We've had a lot of conflict-free chapters lately, so I'll understand if you want me to get straight into the next arc.

    Vote for your choice here.

Twilight has an experiment planned, and it centres on Rainbow Dash.

As anxious as she is, Dash really has no right to complain.

It was her idea after all.

Fan Reading!

Rainbow Dash, you are VERY BAD at expressing your sexuality.

And that's OK.

:trixieshiftright:

#2 · 111w, 5d ago · 1 · 2 ·

it seems out-of-character for Twilight to say no shit. And you could replace a few of the "Im not gay"s with something synonamous. Makes it seem less repetitive that way.

#3 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

This story made me laugh. I think you characterized RD's constant nervousness/denial pretty well, and I though it was pretty cute. :twilightsmile:

#4 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh Twilight. You so silly.

It's 'No shit, Sherlock.'

Pretty good, though.

Edit: in before the feature box?

#5 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Fucking fantastic XD

#6 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh: Oh my gosh, I was laughing throughout the whole thing! That was hilarious, and Dash being dense makes a strange sort of sense. Nice job :pinkiehappy:

#7 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

I always wanted Twi to say something like that, but never could persuade her myself.  Good show.

#8 · 111w, 5d ago · 5 · ·

Oh, gods. I'm faving this so hard, just because of that punchline.

#9 · 111w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

*sees its by Dawn Fade*

Read Later *click*

#10 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Well, this was surprisingly hilarious. Nice job.

#11 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Funny stuff! Personally I thought the "no shit" made for a hilarious punchline.

I'm not necessarily convinced that just because we don't see certain behaviors from characters on-screen, that it automatically excludes the possibility of their existence off-screen (so to speak).

#12 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Ha, pretty funny.

I liked it well enough, good job!

:pinkiehappy:

#13 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Absolutely hilarious. You portrayed RD better than anyone I've read from in my experience. The ending line was just too funny, and I actually laughed out loud at a couple parts. Excellent job!

#14 · 111w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Rivers in Egypt, Rainbow.

#15 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

"A friendly experiment." you got me there. really cute and well written. :twilightsmile:

#16 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

“No shit.”

bestend ever!

#18 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

This pleases me.

#19 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Could be miles worse. The cussing is kinda anomalous and doesn't really 'add' anything to the story.  

-Chessie

#20 · 111w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Very entertaining. I like it.

And while yes, "No shit" is out-of-character for Twilight, it's also very fitting. So I don't care one way or the other.

Oh, and Fav. :twilightsmile:

#21 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Lol, facking hilarious and cute!

#22 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

this is why i'm in a million groups.

So I can see stories before they get featured.

Twidash and Writer's Group.

Oh, and this thing it really good. I know this has already been said, but that no shit line was priceless.

MOAR!

#23 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

I don't know who you are, but thanks to you, my brother just passed out from laughter. :trixieshiftleft:

#24 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh god, this was hilarious!

#25 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Dash's characterization was great!  I think I love it too much.  I'm going to have to favorite this. :rainbowkiss:

#26 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

No shit that was an amazing story. Oh how I love your writings. Oh gosh, still laughing at that last line. Here have a moustache.

:moustache:

#27 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

This just goes ta show, when dawn writes somethin, you read it. Imediately, like, no shit, am I right:rainbowlaugh:

#28 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

I hate shipping, yet for some reason clicked on this fic. Yet I love this fic! It just felt so in character and is hilarious! Good job! Best Ship fic ever :pinkiehappy: My only complaint is Twilight last line. I agree she'd say something with a similiar meaning, but not that. oh well. Great job.

#29 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh and too the feature box! Seriously if this doesn't make it there then that thing is broken.

#30 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Lmao... oh yes. This is getting featured.

And that ending was perfect. No doubt it's possible Twilight lets slip a profanity or two under... extenuating circumstances? :rainbowlaugh:

#31 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1377328

He should change it to that. I could so see Twilight saying that!

I'm reading this again.

#32 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Gold star and thumbs up for you. RD is perfect here. It's the same dialogue I have her go through in my headcanon every time she's shipped.

one correction: probablyhave  = missing a space

Also, brilliant segue: "She wasn’t gay, so that couldn’t be it. " ... "Rainbow Dash stood up straighter"

#33 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Dat ending.

#34 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1377556 It ain't broke.

#35 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

TwiDash? By DawnFade? Oh hell yes!

Sweet Harmony that was brilliant. I know I'm echoing like half the other comments, but this is one of the most perfect written portrayals of Rainbow Dash I've ever seen. And the best part, of course, is that it's marked "incomplete".

#36 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

This is THE best fic I've read in forever!

#37 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

No shit? That was perfect.

#38 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

I love this. MOAR :flutterrage:

#39 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Even if Twilight breaks character a bit there at the end with the age old saying, it was still hilarious.

#41 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Silly

#42 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Complete?!

But I saw the "Incomplete" tag and the title of the chapter hints at continued... :raritycry:

#43 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh: that ending.

It was a good chuckle for me, which is saying something because I'm not very expressive.

#44 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

     -Y’know, maybe science can be fun after all.

     Let's make out.  For science.

You've somehow pulled off one of those silly fics that isn't meant to be taken quite seriously and yet have it feel believable.  Commence slow clap!

     This had me laughing all throughout.  The way you wrote Rainbow's thoughts was very in-character, not to mention hilarious.

There's one thing I'd like to know, though; Where in the name of all Heaven and Hell did you get this idea from?

Edit: Ooh, feature box.  Should've seen that coming.  You know I'm quite jealous of you, right?

#45 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

LOL MORE! I so hope there will be more!LOL

this was incurably cute and funny

#46 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1377916

Mmm, yes, your jealousy sustains me.

I have no idea where I got the idea, but I want to go there again and get some more.

#47 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1377409:rainbowlaugh:

well, that was um....well:fluttershysad:, awe hell this was hilarious!:rainbowlaugh: I mean like that ending was perfect!:twilightsmile:

#48 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

For science!

#49 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

I don't usually care for human swears in pony fics, but for the sake of humor, that line was great. Thumbed.

#50 · 111w, 5d ago · · ·

Okay.... So you managed to write a fairly common shipfic in a new way and made it hilarious. Is there anything you can't do?
