    BUCK 2014 Fanfiction Panel

    Hi guys and gals!

    BUCK is coming up this Saturday, and is very exciting (if you are going, that is!). Even more exciting than that is that there will be a FANFICTION PANEL starring all your favourite people (and me).

    If you are going to BUCK, please come along and say hi! It will be at 11am on the Saturday morning, more details here: http://buckcon.org/events/word-crimes

    Joining me, will be Knighty, Scribbler, Arcanium, Greatodyer and Metaphor

    (You may remember that Scribbler did some amazing readings of some of my stories, and Arc decided Scootaloo sounded like a pirate for our Fimfic charity livestream. I certainly haven't forgotten!)

    Come on, how amazing does that sound! If you're at the con and don't go, your life will be full of tears!

    (No idea if the panel will be filmed and put online, I don't think so, unless anyone is planning on going along with a camera!)

    'Rise' has, uh, risen

    I am a machine! A pony machine! It turns out that after a few weeks of scraping out a few hundred words on another story, the threat of a deadline on this one got me there with time to spare!

    Yup, 'Rise' is now complete, and actually within the word limit. The response has been amazing, and so I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Some of you might be upset it is a self-contained story (though it was always going to be, and the ending was the first thing I thought up). I may return to this idea though, and I have no problem with anyone else wanting to riff off it!

    http://www.fimfiction.net/story/210454/rise


    I ended up above a thousand words above the word limit. Fimfic's word count isn't as accurate as gdocs, but it was still a bit much. I ended up removing some minor bits, but also the firefly section. I will leave it below, and might drop it back in after the contest has finished! So uh, sorry if you liked that bit!


    Something caught her eye. A flicker of light above the enormous entranceway to the castle. It was fire in a jar.

    No. Misty narrowed her eyes, looking closer. She started to storm toward the entrance, a new sense of determination rising. It wasn’t fire. With a leap she rose into the air, ignoring the screaming of her sore wings as they took her closer and closer to the jar.

    It was sitting on a ledge above the door, sending gentle light all around. It wasn’t fire though. She pressed her face against the smooth glass, watching the trapped fireflies within, circling their tiny prison.

    “Don’t worry, I’ll get you out of there!” she whispered urgently, looking this way and that in case a pony should see what she was up to. When she was certain the coast was clear, she hefted herself onto the top of the jar, which seemed to be made out of metal. Despite the obvious join, she could see no gaps in the top. She tried using her sword to pry it apart, but nothing would budge.

    “Damn pony magic!” she cursed, sinking down beside the jar in defeat. She watched her pained reflection, illuminated by the streaks of light from within. An idea formed in her mind; she slowly stood up and hefted her front limbs against the jar. “Okay, little buddies! Hold tight!”

    Straining against the glass, she hefted as hard as she could. It began to scrape against the ledge and then started to violently shudder and topple. Misty fell forwards as the jar launched itself onto the ground, barely managing to not fall herself. Below her, it exploded into a thousand shards of crystal that lit up as the fireflies danced free, soaring into the black of the night and vanishing amongst the stars.

    Misty smiled. She had done it. She had struck a blow against the ponies the like of which had never been seen before. It wasn’t enough though. Winter was still coming. But there was something the ponies didn’t know. Misty was coming for them.

    Now to finish Seapony story!

    EqD Prompt Competition Madness

    Okay guys, I have put everything on hold in a frenzied attempt to actually write a story for the EqD Outside Insight Summer Fanfic Contest. I have posted up what I've done in order to shame myself into finishing it. Another 5k by tomorrow... it's doable!

    Actually, my worry is that it will be too long, as the limit is 15k. But then I guess you all still get a bonus story, so everyone wins!

    Let me know what you think!

    Rise

    It is about Breezies, but EVEN SO give it a go!

    Video Review: Twilight's Best Friend

    I just got messaged by Emeraldcomet who showed me a video review he did of my story Twilight's Best Friend. I always like to see what other people made of my stories (and if you do something like this, please let me know!)

    It's an old story (early 2011 I believe) but still one of my favourites, if a little rough around the edges in retrospect! Anyway, check out the review here:

Sweetie Belle has found a new friend. A star pony who claims to have fallen from a comet and who needs help with a very secret mission. Normally Sweetie Belle would tell an adult, but you're allowed to trust star ponies, aren't you?

The star pony isn't the only thing that fell from the sky. Somewhere in Equestria is a box. A very special, very dangerous box. A box which could end the world if it ends up in the wrong hooves.

A box which Scootaloo has just found...

Anypony else see the picture and immediately thought of a Quarian from Mass Effect?


This sounds neat. I'll have to check it out! :>

That damnable cover art. Thanks to that, I realized that quarian helmets are perfectly shaped for pony heads. I am now terribly conflicted about my Shepard's love life.

Not that this is likely a problem for most bronies.

There's a subtle difference between a doomsday device, and something that can end the world.

I haven't read this yet, but my brain was all like:

Oh, boy! A Quarian!

Wow, when Twilight Sparkle isn't being transfigured into a rock, steam locomotive, prairie dog, etc., you tell a great story. Rarely have I been more amused than your very dry description of Sweetie "cleverly" burying her sister's hats in the garden. :unsuresweetie: You've got characterization nailed.

"Whatever it was, it was definitely not Scootaloo." ... ... If you say so! :scootangel:

Is this a reference to the 1986 Film by chance? Nostalgia aside I can't help but think of the space ponies as Quarians now.

What a badass picture! Is that a Mass Effect thing (I've never played it :( )

There are a few nods towards that film yes (I loved it as a kid!) though more nods towards the similar film Starman if I'm honest. I like to have a wide range of homages. It'll make sense as the story progresses, I don't want to spoil anything!

#29 · 118w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1087516 Yes that's a Mass Effect thing. I'm glad that you're paying homage to awesome 80's sci-fi movies. Keep up the good work. :raritywink:

I'm very eagerly waiting for more of this mysterious adventure.

#32 · 118w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Hrrm. Time travel is involved, so the Navigator is probably an older version of an earth pony Sweetie knows... I'm guessing Diamond Tiara, purely for the lolz.

How did the suit land on the cloud with the magic reserves depleted?  Or is that a passive enchantment?

I loved Flight of the Navigator when I was younger. Glad to see people still remember it :pinkiehappy:

Also, a question:

“In that case I’ll just have to practise my...

What's the difference between 'practice' and 'practise'? Seems like one of those weird British-English idioms.

Also, let me guess: Sweetie Belle saw her future self or someone she knows in future form.

#36 · 117w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Ok here is my guess; hope I'm not spoiling anything, but if I'm right...

*

I'm saying the Navigator is Scootaloo from the future... She walked on clouds... but can't fly. And she may be here to change the past to grant her younger self's wish. Which could be bad since it will change the future.

:scootangel: Don't post in the comments if I'm right cuz I don't want to ruin it for anyone(feel free to message me if I am though lol).

In British/Commonwealth English, "practice" is the noun ("I'm going to go to accordion practice") and "practise" is the verb ("I'm going to go practise playing the accordion").

>>1188054

You have my eternal gratitude... for a few hours. xD

#48 · 115w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Well, I almost thought that Navigator might be Future-Sweetie-Belle, especially since Sweetie never told Navigator her name. Maybe someone else she knows?

(Well, she introduced herself but Navigator was, I think, sleeping at the time.)

Still. Reading on! Seems great so far; you really captures a typical CMC escapade.

#49 · 115w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

“Yeah!” Scootaloo called back. “I just need to work on missing the ground!”

Oh, Hitchhiker's Guide <3

Oh hey, unicorn and pegasus, and the other was earth pony, maybe as I said on last one earth pony is Apple Bloom and these two are the other DANGIT SHE SAID HER NAME

But, future pony suspicion confirmed! 1/2 ain't bad. Eagerly awating more!

#50 · 115w, 16h ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

... so they're from the future. :pinkiegasp:

Kinda had a suspicion in that direction...... aaaand apparently I'm not the only one who thought it'd be "Crusaders from the future, yay!" :derpytongue2:

...though the cake twins make sense too. Timetravel is an established concept in the MLP:FiM universe after all, I'm surprised I haven't stumbled into any other works with Pumpkin Cake using time magic or anything of the likes prior. Though the "Navigator" has to be somepony Sweetie Belle knows, or at least teh color scheme / mane must be obvious enough to deduct who the parents are - her reaction when she lifted the helmet gave that away.

If it's Applebloom, that'd go well with the "not telling a lie, just not telling the truth"-thing, and why she didn't want to tell Sweetie Belle about "how it's like, where she came from", or even giving out a more convincing false name. She didn't want to lie either. It'd also explain how she knew Sweetie Belle's name, despite being unconscious at the time when Sweetie Belle first introduced herself. Nice one there, didn't even notice that at the time. :scootangel:

If it *is* Applebloom, the immediate question arises - what about the other crusaders?

Yeah, obviously the ship's crewmembers were chosen for their qualifications, and not based on them being a group of childhood-friends or not. But still, curiosity and all. :raritywink:

Also, on the matter of their time-traveling ship - it seems somewhat unlikely for Equestrian technology to have reached that point within just a single generation, just like that. Also, the "Navigator" stated that the box contains "everything" - and Pound Cake stated that they came with a warning.

I'm taking it that means it contains information on how to deal with whatever is coming, and possibly, the very key to developing the level of technology the crew of the time-vessel possess. It might be a closed time-loop, as opposed to an attempt to alter the past - or an attempt to fulfill a closed timeloop gone wrong. (Ship crashing, crewmember jumping overboard, essential equipment lost... yeah, everything's going exactly according to plan) :trollestia:
