    September (cough) state of (hack) the (urgh, snot, splort, groan) writer

    that third thing: c25k

    Told you I was scatterbrained... I finally remembered what that third thing was that I've been doing. It's called 'c25k'.

    C25K stands for 'couch to 5k', as in 'couch potato to 5 kilometer runner'. It's supposed to lead you from being a fat slob sitting in front of the television to be able to run for 30 minutes - or roughly five kilometers - in about nine weeks.

    I've just started week 3, but I've been doing this for about five weeks... blame school holidays ending, trips to Estonia and some really shitty weather for making me repeat (not abandon or postpone) weeks 1 and 2. I have to say though, I think it works. It's scary when you start a new week, and the first attempt at each new week is always worse than the one before it... but I'm doing okay. I'm running the distance.

    If you've ever wanted to get into shape, but just don't know how, then this is the easiest, cheapest way to get into shape I've found yet: all you need is an mp3 player and a pair of sneakers. And clothes - most people look at you oddly if you're not dressed.

    Follow this link and download the podcasts, do what the nice lady says and you'll be on your way in no time.

    Oh mah gawd, it's alive! It's ALLIIVVEEE! (muahahaaa)

    Yah yah, I know: long time no see.

    Well, I thought I should kind of fix that. 'Kind of' because I'm kind of scatterbrained at the moment, don't really have the time to dedicate to a proper entry and a third reason which totally helps explain things. I have been busy in life. The good sort of busy, I guess, which leads to not much writing but doesn't lead to horrible depression and ennui. I've not really had much time to interact here, so... I'm alive. And writing - slowly.

    When it comes out, out and about chapter 10 will be the last. I hope it's as awesome as it is in my head...

    And when it comes out, king of diamonds chapter 28 won't be the last... but it will also be awesome.

    Promises, promises, I know, but almost one thousand people can't be that wrong, can they? Yes, that's right, almost a thousand people think I'm kinda awesome! I'm shocked. I'm also hoping that it's a modicum of talent and not merely having been here forever.

    So what have I been doing when not-writing? We-eelll... I've been coding. It might be going somewhere. And once I finish (actually, once it's 'good enough') then I might use what I've learned on something else. Something writing-y related.

    Stay tuned.

    So, what've you all been up to?

    Crystal Fair Con: Day 1: 72 hours remain

    Con day zero: 96* hours remaining

    So: Thursday was the first day of the con for me, same as it was for everyone on staff who wasn't actively involved in any real pre-setup.

    Thursday (super early!) saw Tabitha and Kevin arrive. I believe the flight went relatively well, but at something like 14 hours plus, it was exhausting as heck and the pair understandably needed to decompress and get some energy back. They did that by soldiering through the jetlag like real troopers and enjoying themselves some Helsinki in summer. The only stories I could really tell at this point would be second hand, so I won't embellish - they had fun and that was pretty much that.

    By the way, have I said yet that Tabitha is super-super-nice? And that so is Kevin? Because they both are. Honest. I've seen pissy diva's and pushy little monsters but Tabitha is so awesome and a lot of fun to be around, and Kevin knows his stuff when it comes to the little details that really round out the experience for the guests. If I ever get to do this again, thanks to the little tricks he just flat out does at the flick of a wrist (hoof? I guess he's an honorary pony, though - without being mean, honest - I'd see him more as a sharp-eyed griffon!) I'll be better next year.

    I didn't get to meet Tabitha on Thursday, and to be honest other than walking to a bunch of hotels I didn't care about because I didn't really need to know where they were and seeing a bunch of people I would come to care about but at that moment didn't (no offence, but on Thursday everyone was a stranger in person!) and faffing around at the airport with the sorts of minor schedule mishaps that can occur when Finnair (I think, don't quote me on that) loses an entire effin' plane's worth of luggage, everything went pretty well.

    My target, Anneli, made her way to Helsinki fine, but remember when I mentioned about losing all the luggage?

    Yup.

    You may have seen her joyful reunion with her bright yellow suitcase on twitter from the Friday, because her belongings had a mini vacation of their own in kocha bamba...

    I could have seriously missed Thursday, but I will totally agree that it was good preparation for what was to come...

    *yeah, I know, the actual time the con had wasn't that long, but what'm I gonna do, huh?

A noble earth-pony family, fallen somewhat on hard times, is killed in a mining accident. They leave behind a single male heir, who is in sore need of a guardian, and of protection. Celestia takes the young pony under her wing and delivers him not to ponies - not earth, unicorn or pegasus - but to a dragon, an ambassador, an old friend of hers.

Playing a game which may just be deadly to the uninformed, the dragon decides that the one path open to him to ensure the safety of his charge and to carry out his sworn duty, is to adopt.

Nice story, let's see where it goes...

#2 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

Dragonforce based story? That's new.

Haven't really read the chapter yet but if you don't mind me asking, what have you done with your enter key? If it doesn't appear soon, I'm calling the cyber police.

#3 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

Well it's a good idea overall, this is my first fanfic in a [very/i] long while i've read with OC's as a major character. I tend to avoid them out of biasness and the last time it did not end well, or start well, or have a particulary good middle section. Infact i read it and i was rather :derpyderp2: to it so with all that asiade let's look at this from the begining and see how well it fits together. The answer, SLOW DOWN.

You write suberply and everything flows wonderfully together. You are also one of the only people i have ever met who seem to know how to phrase dialouge like in a book on the internet so props off to you for that. I'd like a bit more of a description of the Ambassador and of Chip themselves but my biggest complaint is that you have so much happening at once in this chapter and it all goes by very quickly. I did enjoy reading it and will be continuing to do so as later chapters appear.  

#4 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

THIS ISH IS GETTING TRACKED SO FUCKING HARD!!!

#5 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

you know its good when its 5.0 in 7 rstings :pinkiegasp:

goodjob sir

#6 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

A role reversal? A dragon rearing a pony foal? I love the concept and the execution seems sound so far. I'll keep an eye open for opportunities to quote Dragonforce, by the way :p

#7 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

>>65432

I do intend to slow the pace down, right down. The initial hectic few scenes are to get things rolling. The board is set up, the opening moves of all players are standard and well known... but for one.

#8 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

Wow i like how this is going so far :pinkiesmile:

#9 · 149w, 2d ago · · · Through Fire and Flames ·

and now all it needs is carpet bombing and more cow bell and it will become complete :pinkiehappy:

Love it. was a little worried going into it. just because i'm a little wary of OC stories. but this was definitelyworth it.

lovethe dragon. i won't say the 'chess' thing is overdone nowadays, but i will say there are too many charaacters who use it, and frankly, don't do it well. this is definitely NOT the case here. X3. love it, and i love just his characterization. the back and forth between cold/calculating and warm/caring (or at least thats what i see it as) was executed well.

definitely gonna track this. X3

>>66719

It's very easy to overdo the whole "trololo it's all a game of chess" - I really don't wish to rub the analogy in anypony's face so you won't hear too much about it. I would rather treat it as the ambassador himself treats it - he knows scheming plans are afoot, but he doesn't quite know what, therefore he does his best to prepare by sheltering his new charge the best way he sees fit.

Liking it thus far, will be tracking this one for sure

Please Sir, Can I have some more?:fluttercry::applecry::raritycry:

love it

#16 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Another excellent chapter, the skydiving bit was hilariously awesome :twilightsmile:

#17 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Pardon me, but is there really a need to call him a dragon?

Yeah yeah, your story and all, but he is technically an Earth Pony. Even the blind could

see that. Other than that, I look forward to the next chapter.

#18 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Awesome!

#19 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

This ish just got funny

#20 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>67318

i think that's just the actual dragon being a troll to everyone else, that or draconic pride are my guesses. I just treat it like pinkie pie and roll with it. :pinkiehappy:

#21 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

the hideous spectre of ‘bedmane’ :rainbowlaugh:

this is a interesting story, not sure if i've read one before where a dragon was raising someone of a different species before... not that i remember at least

#22 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Interesting idea with the multi-race school. I guess when you live in the boundary-lands of Equestria you get used to it.

Also, I agree with ForlanceAbice, it seems weird to call him a dragon, but I'm sure you have your reasons.

#23 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Guess i'll leave a comment on this one too. X3

first. The title. MY FAVORITE DRAGONFORCE SONG EVER.

anyway, love it. definitely was worth tracking. gonna say i like the whole, Sharptooth referring to Chip as a 'dragon.' i'm not gonna try to give reasons for it, its your story. but i like it. it makes Sharptooth a little deeper in character.

second(third?) best line of the whole story, "he licked his muzzle clean and devoured the rest in a bloodthirsty orgy of gastronomical destruction" jsut saying.

looking forward to more.

#24 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>67322

Look, everyone knows that is an earth pony, but when a huge flying armored fire breathing killing machine with diplomatic immunity shows up with a kid in tow and tells you they are his kid, and thus a dragon, you generally don't belabor the point with him.

That said, I do like this premise, and the execution thus far. Seeing more of this will brighten my day.

#25 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

I tried to click on chapter 3...Then I literally yelled out FU:yay:K Thanks for writing such a good chapter!

#26 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Welp, one more thing added to my tracked list...

#27 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

love it

Not bad, hhowever I didnt feel the dragonforce song as a title as it didn't rly fit the story, but then again that's just me.

Makes me wanna make a story about a gambling pony who finds love, but never put him in a casnio and call the first chapter "Ace of Spades":rainbowlaugh:

#30 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Toy Story references, you just have to love them.

#31 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

:pinkiehappy: Wow! :pinkiehappy:

I love the idea, and the execution - and the "calling Chip a dragon" thing is really excellent - not just for Sharptooth's character, but for Chip's as he grows up. Can't wait to see more.

:twilightsmile: :raritystarry: :pinkiesmile: :rainbowlaugh: The ponies approve.

#32 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

And Chip discovers the game "Kerplunk".

Mind you, without Tess and the Foley's transporters it's a limited version of the game.

Ahhhhh :fluttercry: Sharpie sounds like Dumbledore to me :raritycry:

#34 · 149w, 1d ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>68339

I like being a bit facetious with my titles, so you'll have to stretch for the meaning. It's not at all because I suck at them. :scootangel:

>>68403

Semantics, technicalities, contracts, inheritance... Chip lives in a magical world, Sharpie is a powerfully magical creature. He has his reasons.

>>68280

Clothing store spam? That's a new one.

>>67528

:pinkiehappy:

#35 · 149w, 22h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>67318>>67528It probably signifies acceptance and belonging.  Simply put, Sharptooth is declaring that he views Chip as not just a member of his family, but as his own son, and not just as an outsider or add-on

#36 · 149w, 22h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

This is definitely looking interesting.  I can't wait for more.:pinkiehappy:

#37 · 149w, 15h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

I love it Midnight. Can't wait to see what happens.

Get more out soon please.

Track and 5*.

#38 · 149w, 12h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

Well then. My only real complaint would be that this moves pretty fast, at least the first chapter does. Mostly, I have no earthly idea why Sharptooth would so willingly and whole-heartedly adopt an orphaned pony just like that. I expect that this will be gone into later, however, so benefit of the doubt and all.

But curses, you went the foal route, and that's instant like. :| I mean, Chip turning around three times before lying down? ADORABLE. And then there was the flying lesson.

"AAAAAAAA"

"Feel it in your wings!"

"AAAAAAAHHHHH!"

Fantastic. Also, Frostpepper is a GREAT name. Also FUK U FUK U FUK U

#39 · 149w, 12h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

:pinkiehappy: nuff said

#40 · 149w, 12h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>68464 eh, spam takes many forms though, yeah, don't see that too often

oh well, one less waste of text :rainbowdetermined2:

#41 · 149w, 12h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

also the first spam i've seen on this site

#42 · 149w, 11h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>69132

muwahahaaa, looks like I nyxed your plans to hate it then :rainbowlaugh:

...and I almost wish I hadn't used Frostpepper because yeah, great name (for once).

>>69184

saw the same thing on another story, same account. I think I need to tell Knighty...

#43 · 149w, 8h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

This story is so cute!

#44 · 149w, 1h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

>>69184

It sucks because I have that  on a blog post (not that anyone reads those) but yoy can't delete comments on a blog post.

#45 · 149w, 1h ago · · · Where Dragons Rule ·

*you (meaning I)

But anyways great story, I am really looking forward to reading more.

#46 · 148w, 6d ago · · · The Flame of Youth ·

Confound these dragons, they drive me to feelings.

I do quite love this story and would submit y request for moar posthaste.

#47 · 148w, 6d ago · · · The Flame of Youth ·

That was an awesome chapter, I for one think that treating chip like a dragon is a very interesting concept and will make for a great story.

#48 · 148w, 6d ago · · · The Flame of Youth ·

Lol i was hoping he would start breathing fire XD

#49 · 148w, 6d ago · · · The Flame of Youth ·

Oh Midnight, you and your 'being good at writing', whatever that is.

Another wonderful job.

#50 · 148w, 6d ago · · · The Flame of Youth ·

This story sure stands out from others, can't wait to see where this leads.
