    EET LIIIIVES!


    *clears throat*

    In any case, I've finally finished writing the next chapter of vampony. Sorry it took so long, but I have been busy dealing with life after some unexpected complications arose. However, things are settling down now and I intend to get back to writing.

    So without further adieu...




    I'll be sending the chapter off to be proofread. Please hold the torches and pitchforks for now. :derpytongue2:

    i don't always delve into the new stories section of this site...

    but when i do i occasionally find something interesting.

    Lady Octavia by Cyber Clash

    looks like this is the author's first story, may as well help them get some views.

    also, two things of note:

    first off, i'm finally on my christmas break so i  will have some time to do some writing, we'll see how that goes.

    secondly if there are any musicians who enjoy mary jane's addiction reading this, head on over to This reddit thread because i'm trying to get a bunch of musicians together for what will probably be a charity album.

    Bloody hell it's been a while since i did one of these...

    Sorry about the silence, had a lot on my plate.

    first off, stories:

    I'm getting them done, albeit slowly. Most of the time delay is due to me being unable to come up with anything that is worth posting, and lack of time to write. They'll be posted when they are done.

    Second off:

    I started a GTA V crew if any of you are interested in joining.

    find it here: NLR National Guard

    Feel free to bug me about stories on GTA if you feel so incensed, however expect some C4 coming your way if you get obnoxious.

Canterlot... For centuries, Canterlot was the shining gem of Equestria, the pinnacle of pony society. Now, it’s a reminder, a bleak and monolithic warning to the world. 

Changed by the chemical and technological poisons that plague the mountain, an abomination of nature, I wander the greatest disaster Equestria has ever seen. 

... I will escape eventually, and when I do, I hope my friends still see me as Twilight Sparkle, and not the monster that hides among the ruins.

The last part was kinda... anticlimactic

Still, awesome.

This is good. No more to say, really.

#9 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Wow, just... wow.

Such good writing quality, I felt everything you described.

Have 6/5 Twilights (not the corrupted ones) :twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

#14 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Yeah, okay, this is really kinda neat. Kinda looking forward to see how Abomination Twilight fits in to Equestria after having been presumed dead for two years.

#15 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

MOAR :flutterrage:

#16 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I kinda expected the escape from Canterlot to be a lot longer and harder, and I have to agree with >>1056078 the ending seems anticlimactic, Otherwise it was amazing, an original and interesting concept expanded in a well written story. Good work, wonder what kind of reception awaits Twilight after been changed and considered dead for such a long time. Between the acid and the nanos is not exactly safe to be around her without some precautions...

#17 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I fucking love this story. please keep it up. and please release the next chapter soo....NOW!!!!!!!!!...*ahem* sorry about that. yes, please release the next chapter soon as this is possitively brilliant

#18 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

also. congrats on getting the featured box. if it wasnt for it i wouldnt have found this beautiful story

#19 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Tis' a one-shot, no? I atleast hope that Symphony shattered shall continue.

#20 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

You are making another chapter right? Or are you just going to the end it here.

#21 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

OH MY GAWD!!!! I burst into tears at the ending. PLEASE, MOAR!!!! :rainbowlaugh:

#22 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

two good stories one after another, you have my bow. I will follow you.

And if the chapters are not updated regularly:twilightangry2:

#23 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

might want to have someone go over it, editor-wise.  uhm, quite a few lowercase 'i's, an extra line break here or there and such.  nothing too bad.

the idea is nice.  it feels a bit rushed.  i think you should have focused more on Twilight's emotive response to some of this.  this is her home - both her old home and her new home - her prison and a reminder of her loneliness and 'abandonment' by the Princess's.  i would like to see more emotional internal monologue from Zomblight here, especially as she's going through her brother's things.  how she feels about things, not just what she sees,

the reason given why she couldn't signal the Princess's seems a bit ... i don't know.  simple?  i can't explain that, so nevermind.

overall, it was ... nice.  i liked it.

#24 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

And many tears were shed.

I have run out of good words to describe this, although you might want to watch your I's, I noticed three or four were not in the proper case. Nothing else really glared at me.

Great, great fic.

#25 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I must follow this.

I am most intrigued.

#26 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

AM I THE ONLY OVERLORD HERE WHO NOTICED A FAULTY SITUATION HERE?...

UGH... IF THE NA-NITES CHANGED TWILIGHT SO THAT SHE NO LONGED NEEDS TO BREATH,

WHY DOES SHE NEED TO HOLD HER BREATH WHEN GOING THROUGH THE WATER FALL?...

NO ONE NOTICED THIS:facehoof:

#27 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

This was awesome!

Definitely following this one!

#28 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

This is wondrous. Continue.

I'd imagine getting water in your lungs, even if they're non functional, isn't all that pleasant. Also, old habits probably die hard.

#30 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

>>1056562 reflexes? Old habits?

#31 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I have to say, this is an amazing short story. I would like you to continue this particular story if possible.

#32 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

An interesting start, though there is not enough to get a good sense of the direction it will be taken.

#33 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Well it appears I will have to write more now.

Also: feature box *squee*

#34 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

great story and first chapter! looking forward to more!:raritystarry:

>>1056562

to speak; you need to push air from your lungs, so she still uses them, just not to supply her body with oxygen, meaning that if she were to get water in her lungs she would still cough it up like everyone else, which isn't a pleasant experience in itself. oh, and old habit/reflexes ofc!:twilightsmile:

#35 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

What an intriguing story. I'm very much interested in this AU that you're creating and I very much look forward to finding out what happens next. Please don't keep me in suspense for long.

:rainbowwild:

#36 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

>>1056511 I always love it when someone else says exactly what I was going to.

I'll be editing this when I get off work later today.

>>1056769

It's been a pretty depresing afternoon for me... Then I saw that you had written this story and I was like fuck yeah!:pinkiehappy:

#41 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I feel that It should have been longer but not to much longer.  Seeing as how you have forgone the bitter-sweet reunion until the next chapter and there are a lot of people saying "MOAR", I would guess that you are going to put additional conflict in the story right?  A few themes I see having a hand in causing conflict:

Twilight is now a walking mutant bio hazard due to potential acid burns/death or nanite related issues.

Twilight is now the only one really capable of going back into the ruins to fix any large issues that might occur.

Twilight LOOKS corrupted, her morals and mental faculties appear to be functioning normally so I doubt that she is actually corrupted, merely the subject of some physical alterations and abnormalities.

Now the ideas I see sprouting from these facts:

Attempts to cure Twilight and change her back to her normal, biological pony self.

Solving an issue that may occur in Canterlot ruins which might become a threat to the rest of Equestria.

Emotional feelings of affection for another which would end up causing her and possibly her love interest pain due to the dangers of physical contact and mating incompatibilities (especially if Twilight's maternal instinctive needs decide to kick in).

Other's reaction to her fearsome looks.

I'm sure there could be a few others but these seem to be the most prominent in my mind at the moment.

#42 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

1 chapter, 3,500 words or a prolouge and i'm already fucking super-hyped for the next chapter! :pinkiehappy:

#43 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR

You have the choice:you finish this story or i stalk you-FOREVAAAAAAAAAR!

That's unfuckingknowable!

#44 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

The end was so anticlimactic. That's only complaint I can think of ! :rainbowderp:

#45 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Might be cliché... but....

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, MOAR! :flutterrage:

#46 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

you need to add some parts of the story where twilight got into trouble between the point of the explosion in the factory and that of her escape from the city. maybe even putting something there about how she discovered what caused the explosion at the factory as well possably more exciting moments between what happened. because the story still needs it.

#47 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

damn man! 131 likes and not a single dislike.

#48 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

Interesting, but littered with spelling errors.

#49 · 114w, 6d ago · · · Among the Ruins ·

I know everyone else is saying this, but...

GODDAMNIT MAN/WOMAN, WRITE MORE.

I've always wanted to read a story where it's a sort of semi-apocalypse. I'd even been planning on writing one. But you beat me to it :derpyderp2:

Ah well.

Listening to this made it even BETTAR:

This is pretty good, but the grammar gets increasingly bad towards the end.
