    Three Years

    It's been three years (and ten days, forgetful me) since I published the first chapter of Fillystata, my first real piece of fiction. Since then, I've written half a million words of pony stories. What began as just an idle attempt at writing a small story has quickly become a passion for me. It shows that if you want to write, you just gotta start writing, and keep writing.

    And keep writing I do, albeit at a snail's pace sometimes. So what does the future hold?

    I intend to finish Uniformity and Back and Forth before I concentrate on any more pony stories, though heavens know I have enough drafts and ideas to last me many more years if I wanted to keep writing pony. Hopefully I'll finish at least a few of them once Uniformity is complete. When that will be, I have no idea. There are at least several more chapters to come. I think we're maybe two thirds of the way, as a guess.

    Now that I've found my taste for writing, I'd like to write something more serious, as well as my own. I guess it's a natural transition; fanfiction is great, I love fanfiction, but now I'm curious what it's like to write something entirely my own. Writing non-pony is a new challenge, though, but I'm sure I can handle it. I have a story, which I've been idly planning for quite some time, and I hope now to get it off the ground; no better way to figure out a story than to start writing it. Maybe I'll talk more about it and my experiences writing non-pony later on. Wish me luck.

    Does anyone know of a place like FiMFiction, but for fiction in general, not just fanfiction? Any of them any good? Right now my best option seems to be deviantArt, where people at least know me, but dA's support for literature isn't the greatest.

    Back and Forth, a while longer

    Oh sweet merciful fate, how long it's taken me to write this simple story. When will it ever be done? It was meant to be short and sweet, just five short chapters or roughly so. That's why I went ahead and published it even though it wasn't done, because I thought it wouldn't take long. What a fool I was. To be fair, it probably won't be many more chapters, but it shouldn't have taken so long to write this few words.

    Ah, c'est la vie.

    It's taken a rather grim and violent turn with the last two chapters, something I didn't originally intend. Let's just say I originally considered marking it as for "Everyone" but went with "Teen" just to be sure. Turns out that was a good choice in hindsight.

    I don't tend to second-guess too much where my stories take me. I like to let them surprise me. I hope you all like the twists and turns as well, and I sincerely hope the last few chapters won't take me so long. One is allowed to hope.

    One year of uniforms

    One year ago today, I published the first chapter of Uniformity. 15 chapters and 130000 words of Lyra and Bonbon later, it's become my longest story yet and remains the most popular of my multi-chapters. It's been an interesting ride, and there's even more coming.

    I had hoped to have chapter 16 ready for today to celebrate the occasion, but it needs a little more work and I didn't want to rush it just for this. Expect it around Monday instead. I know the last several chapters have been slow to come, and I certainly never wanted them to take a month or longer each. That's just way too long. I hope I can pick up the pace again and get the chapters out in a timely fashion from now on, and that the waiting hasn't put people off the story.

    I'm a little worried that the last half or so of the story hasn't been exactly like it should have been or not exactly what the story deserves, that maybe it could have been better or more inspired somehow. I've had similar misgivings with my other stories, though, and it's impossible to say how bad it really is until I reach the end and see how everything ties together. In the past it's turned out fine in the end, so I hope Uniformity will too.

    Can't say the small flood of downvotes on the last two chapters isn't making my worries all the more, well, worrying, though. I wish people who downvote would at least give me their reason, maybe it should even be required (if we really must have downvotes at all). Freakin' downvotes no good for nothing :ajbemused:

    Anyway, big momentous occasion, yay! And I just recently passed 300 followers too, and half a million words of pony too, so here's to the future! May it be filled with lots of ponies and many more words! :rainbowkiss:

    Oh, and Lyra is Bestest Pony!

    Keeping score with the words

    I'm very sorry for the lack of writing of late. Things should be getting better, so hopefully you can expect some new chapters coming out soon.

    Anyway, I thought I'd share a little thing I made for my own sake recently. Ever been reading a long, multi-chapter story here on the site and wondered how many words you've read so far? Tired of adding up each chapter's word count yourself?

    Well, I got tired of it, at least. So I wrote myself a little script to do it for me. In case I'm not alone with my desire to keep score, here's my solution.

    Just make a new bookmark in your browser with the following as the address/url:

    javascript:(function(){function get(e,t,c){var a=Array();var es=e.getElementsByTagName(t);for(var i=0;i<es.length;i++){if((' '+es[ i ].className+' ').indexOf(' '+c+' ')>-1){a.push(es[ i ]);}}return a;}var c,cs,w,ws;var words=0;cs=get(document,'i','chapter-read');for(var i=0;i<cs.length;i++){ws=get(cs[ i ].parentNode,'div','word_count');for(var j=0;j<ws.length;j++){words+=(ws[j].firstChild.nodeValue.replace(/[^0-9]/g,'')-0);}}alert(words);})();

    Whenever you're viewing a story (not a chapter) just hit the bookmark and it'll tell you how many words you've read. Or it should; I haven't exactly tested it in a ton of browsers.

    Here's the same code in a little more readable form, for anyone interested in studying it.

    javascript:(function(){

        function get(e,t,c){

            var a=Array();var es=e.getElementsByTagName(t);

            for(var i=0;i<es.length;i++){

                if((' '+es[ i ].className+' ').indexOf(' '+c+' ')>-1){

                    a.push(es[ i ]);

                }

            }

            return a;

        }

        var c,cs,w,ws;var words=0;

        cs=get(document,'i','chapter-read');

        for(var i=0;i<cs.length;i++){

            ws=get(cs[ i ].parentNode,'div','word_count');

            for(var j=0;j<ws.length;j++){

                words+=(ws[j].firstChild.nodeValue.replace(/[^0-9]/g,'')-0);

            }

        }

        alert(words);

    })();

    Now they just need to give us back the "Words read" counter on our profiles so I don't have to keep track manually.

    The Good, The Bad, the Uniform

    The good: I'm making progress on Uniformity again. I've hit a real good stride with chapter 14 in the last few days, and I'm very positive about the outcome. I think it will be a real solid chapter of a very respectable length. In fact, I think it could be the longest chapter yet. I've only written four out of ten parts of it, and it's already at 5700 words, and that's before edits which can easily add a thousand words alone.

    The Bad: The length means it takes more time, and I've pretty much run out of time for writing this week. I almost certainly won't get to finish the chapter until sometime next week. I'm disappointed with myself for not bringing more regular updates to Uniformity, and I'd like to say I'm sorry for that. I kinda got swept up in other things and didn't feel much like writing for a while. I know everyone would like more frequent updates, and a month is way too long, not just for readers to wait, but also for me to still be in touch with the story.

    The Advice: If you're writing a long story like this, do your best to stick to it every day, don't let days or weeks go by where you don't work on it. You will only lose touch with it that way.

    The Idea: I'm thinking of going back to merge chapters 9 and 10 into one chapter sometime. Chapter 11 will then become 10 and so on. I'm not sure how exactly to handle that, but we'll see. I think they should have been one chapter to begin with.

    The Goodest: Even if it's late, I'm confident that chapter 14 will blow you away :rainbowdetermined2:

When Rainbow Dash called for help on her dying breath, she never imagined she would be rescued twice at once. Now she is neither dead or alive, and she definitely doesn't remember wearing all six Elements ...

Rainbow Dash is divided, and she doesn't have much time. To save herself and her friends she may have to convince them to give up the Magic of Friendship, or she can fight ... but how does one fight destiny?

You spelled lose wrong in the description.

1. Dark tag. Check.

2. Romance tag. Check.

3. Luna. Check.

4 Rainbow Dash. Check.

5. Badass Twilight. Hmm only one way to find out!

DEAR GOD THIS WILL BE AWESOME

Huh? What? :rainbowhuh:

In confused... I want chapter 2! :p

Dun dun duuuuuunnnn!

That's the only way I can describe this whole chapter.

welp, another story to keep an eye on, thumbs up for now but I won't fav until really like it and I need more to decide if I do. Chapter 2?

>>1168588

Very soon. It's almost done :coolphoto:

Can't wait for the next chapter

Much needed explanation coming up next chapter, hooray! Liking the OC's so far, it's good to see some who are kind of "informal" for a change.

>>1169402 Second that motion.

>>1169898

Thanks :twilightsmile: I do hope I'm doing well with the various characters, it's always a difficult thing

need.

moar.

ponyfic!

“Does Fluttershy and the others know you ran away?”

-typo

All I can really think of right now is, "Double Rainbow".

That clears up a lot though, I was just a bit confused with her random passing out and stuff. Also, Zecora.

Double rainbow across the sky yea so intense lol:rainbowlaugh:>>1214082

Aww I was hoping you'd go soardash u know

>>1219175

It's mainly a TwiDash story, or will be. There'll be some other romancing, but TwiDash is where the focus will be, at least.

>>1219691 actually I don't like any story in which RD is shipped with one of her friends  but I guess I can bear through this for one story just because the plot of the story is extremely interesting :pinkiehappy:

>>1219691 Not that kind of plot I'm no clopper :scootangel:

Want more.

BTW, I'm watching you.

Hmmm


AWESOME!!!!!  :rainbowkiss:  

Can't wait for next update:rainbowdetermined2:






First

Holy Shit!

Wait ... I see a refrence, A manga called Time Guardian, Where people go to a secret time shop and borrow time by giving them something they treasure or something. and they are able to do what they want within that time. Then they go back to reality. and Etc. It made me think that Rainbow is kinda in that same situation here, where if she reunites with her double she'll die 2 months later, it kinda makes me think of the aspect that her death would be paying for the time she borrowed.

Kinda cool right??

Also. DAMN! i have respect for that Eden lady, Making Rbd ( Well a part of her) Breakdown into tears like that!

>>1168784 I can't resisit saying this but.... I F*yay*G LOVE YOUR AVATAR PIC! It's so adorable!

>>1275763

I'm not familiar with it, but sounds interesting. And thanks :rainbowdetermined2:

This is getting real interesting. I like the concept Eden brings up, of the "most probable" future, not set in stone or anything. When you posted that cover image first, I thought Eden would be the Big Bad, and maybe she is because I don't know, but she's pretty neutral right now. That's cool to read.

Sooo.....Rainbow is 9 years old and Twi and AJ are 10?

>>1285092

Yes. I like to assume they age like real horses do

Wow! First Story i have seen that there is two sets of elements! That are the exact same as the ones in the show! This is really getting intresting.

Lol two sets of elements one for big battles against evil the other pair. Great fashion accessory :pinkiehappy:

Oh god, giant spider crabs? The horror, the horror!

>>1325142

Can't tell if you're being sarcastic :rainbowhuh:

>>1325492

Nope, not sarcasm. I'm just not fond of spiders, especially not giant ones, hairy ones. Ever played LIMBO? :pinkiesick:

>>1325582

Can't say I have, but I know the feeling

Hello!  Love your story Ad.  It is Synisster from Giant.    Keep it up.  So any good dark stories I am eating them up.  Btw I dunno if I said before but awesome using the Shadowbolts.  So much headcanon with what I am reading on this site.

*bows*  Welcome M'Lady.

Wow.  That a twist.  I didn't expect to see that coming.  I hope Blaze isn't a Changling.  RD deserves to be happy and..somehow this two felt right for her.  Ohhh I am loving this story.  Ty so very much.

Oh shit rainbow you woke up a dragon :rainbowlaugh:

>>1359896

Heh, we'll see :raritywink: And you're welcome

Hmm...Not Twidash? can't complain though, still a good read even if it doesn't have my favorite pairing.

>>1364176

It is intended to be a TwiDash story, that relationship is just taking its time to develop properly :twilightsmile:

AWESOME!! As always :pinkiehappy:

Keep it up

FIRST!!!!    Seriously why do I do that?

*claps*  Nice.  Wonderful spin on everything.  Me Gusta

ow... good, very good

I heartily approve.  Dash is torn in two on what to do.  Could it be she can be free?  Tune in next time and I can stop this rhyme.

Hhmmmm Rainbiw Dash fucked a Changling :rainbowlaugh:

One question. Was it good?? :rainbowhuh:

Of course it was good.  I am sure of it.  Keep them coming Deadly.  I have a ticket for the emotional roller coaster called fan fics.
