    Rise gets 5th place!

    The results for the EqD contest are in! Rise came 5th out of 109! Not bad, not bad at all!

    That means I am a winner and as I am in the top ten, I get some art too! Yay! What art that will be, who knows! I'm very happy about the placing though!

    Go read it if you've not yet! http://www.fimfiction.net/story/210454/rise

    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:

Lemon Dreams is a happy pony with a perfect life in Ponyville. There's only one problem - she thinks she's a lemon.

Is she really a  pony-shaped citrus fruit, or is she just crazy? Does it even matter? When Lemon Dreams finds herself at odds with the ponies of Ponyville and pursued by a strangely familiar ghost, she realises she must discover the answers to those questions before it's too late.

Da fuq? I'm definitely tracking this. :applejackconfused:

Four likes, three dislikes? Well, this seems to be rather polarizing. I could dislike this just to make it even...

>>1633135

It's literally just gone up, some people are being mean just because of the title, it seems!

I wish I could dislike... BUT THIS IS TOO GOOD!:rainbowlaugh:

Why so many dislikes right off the bat? :rainbowhuh:

Well, as much as 3 dislikes counts as so many. Hey when theres only 4 likes to counter, it makes for a big red bar...

Wow, this story is completely fucking crazy! Oh wait, it's from Blueshift? Well that explains everything!

>>1633151

Well they were literally just as the fic went up without any time to even read a few words so I guess someone just took offense to the title! :pinkiesad2:

>>1633167

I just posted 'Changeling Queen: The Changing of Rainbow Dash', and right now I'd feel pretty happy with 3/8 positive to negative. Maybe people are in a bad mood for some reason? Granted, as an author I'm no Blueshift... and as we've just read, Blueshift is very, very good. I like the mystery and the hint that Lemon's already lost someone close to her, and has retreated into this madness... I'm really looking forward to the continuation of this.

Jon

>>1633167 Maybe they just really disliked the concept. Everyone seems to like crack comedy, but not everyone feels the same about serious crackfics.

Also, there a lot of ways you could put lemons to good use. You could use them in your tea, for example.

>>1633212  You would drown the poor things in boiling water!  You fiend!  Out!  Get out!

PK

more like blueSHIT

... I feel like Meatloaf.

>>1633349

Nooo there's no way I can come back from that :applecry:

Better late than never on a prompt fic. Still, I am interested in the direction of this. It could be pretty deep if you are playing it that way. :twilightsmile:

That pony needs to be committed or at least get some help. I with Applejack on this one.

>>1634132 For the lols, mate.

For the lols.

It's. Wonderful. I have no idea why this is so oddly enthralling, but it is.

Lemon Dreams watch it like a hawk
watched

letting herself get closed and closer
closer and closer

Maybe the dislikes were because people thought that "realises" wasn't a word. I wasn't sure myself until I googled it.

Read Later. It's Blueshift.

>>1634193

It's British! I spell everything like the Queen wishes!

>>1634199 Exactly... maybe the dislikers are plotting against you and your ways...

>>1634175

Cheers. I have had several people read this over, they all missed those! :twilightblush:

... This pony is insane... why isn't she in the insane asylum? We know MLP has one... :P

I am going to watch this, its almost psychedelic.

This is, without a doubt, the best story about a pony who thinks she is a lemon that I have ever read.

You deserve a thumb. Myne's pointing up for this story

I found a couple more errors here and there, but they were generally punctuation, and I always get the feeling I'm being too nit-picky if I point them out...

I'm liking this a lot so far. The character is great; she was one of my favorite parts of Cake Story. I just love thinking about her motivations. Some part of what's going on, or even why she is the way she is, has to be because of what she did in her childhood; extreme guilt from having so many lemons thrown to their gory deaths is probably what drives her never to let another one fall or be hurt needlessly, yeah?

Anyway, can't wait for more.

Sorry that was lame. still good job!

>>1634329 She's not literally barking insane, however. So maybe she gets a pass by being only slightly mad. Remeber, after all, that everypony in that town is crazy.

>>1634350 It's not finished yet so I'm going to provisionally mark it down as second-best, pending the resolution. Better safe than sorry. Liking what I'm seeing so far, though!

>>1634466

It's a pretty narrow field, I think. But yeah, I'm interested to see where this is going.

>>1634466

She believes she is some form of small yellow, sour citrus fruit for no identifiable reason other than she can catch them when they roll down hills or fall off trees... that is far beyond the realms of slightly mad.

That and she uses faulty logic to justify her argument for being a small, yellow citrus fruit, I want to bop her on the head and hope that clears things up, or at least until she develops some superior argument for her position of being a citrus fruit.

To the Asylum with you Missy, were you can look after the lemons much better in a padded cell,  afterall , they won't get bashed or bruised if they do fall...

To those out there that disliked this story without a legitimate reason:

well that was a bit... unnerving.:twilightoops:

hmmm, well, not a 100% sure what the hell i just read, but it's both well written and is interesting.....

Though i do wonder how she convinced the whole town to not eat lemons

>>1634497 How do you know that she isn't, though? Blueshift has already previously established that Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor are actually peas, for example, so this isn't too far out there.

Well if she bleeds citrus juice I might be more inclined to agree with her, otherwise she probably isn't one, afterall all the defining characteristics of a lemon is missing in her nature and biology :P

>>1634533

Adventure Time? I'm keeping this up.

_______

Great job dude! LIKE! Tracking...Cause I'm busy. :trollestia::ajbemused:

Didn't Lemon Dreams appear in Cake Story?

...Blueshift, what is it with you and making these references and then later turning them into actual stories?

>>1633088 *self conscious bet* Oh great he used 'life' AND 'lemon' in the title. There is probably already a cave johnson quote in the first 5 comments

1st comment

Well done, you have exceeded my expectations

Umm... Strange. But i like your character.
