    Vote For The Characters For My Next Story!

    So I've been considering writing another one-shot story, and decided to try something a little different and see if I can work a bit out of my comfort zone. It's always good for a writer to expand their horizons a bit, and I thought of a way to do that.

    So here is what I would like for all of you to do. Vote for three characters you would like for me to write a story about. Any character with a character tag, or potentially any OCs I've written about are fair game. Others can be allowed or disallowed based on my judgement (i.e. whether I would ever consider writing them or not). The three characters who receive the most votes will be the feature characters of the next short story I write. In the event of a tie I will have a follow up round for the top contenders.

    Put your votes in a comment for this blog post, and lets see who I will write about next!

    Study of a Winning Pony Chapter 20 off to Prereaders

    So I managed to finish up the 20th chapter of Study, and I've shipped it off to my prereaders to edit.

    I've also finished the second guest chapter I'm doing for The Lunar Rebellion, and that's waiting in line to be gone over by some prereaders. Next up I'm writing a guest chapter for Tales of the Phoenix Empire at the request of Chengar Qordath.

    Study of a Winning Pony 2nd Anniversary and Chapter 19 off to prereaders.

    So I was just looking at Study of a Winning Pony and realized I had first posted up that story two years ago. It's a bit crazy to think about. I first started writing to give myself something creative to do, and to give a bit back to the fandom for all the great stories I had read here on the site. I had always wanted to write, but I never quite felt I had the opportunity to do so. In a development I never would have seen a few years ago, I found that opportunity by writing fanfic. Encouraged by some of the authors I was prepreading for, I got my start with Study and I've been writing horse words for the past couple of years. Something that has brought me no little joy, even if it comes with its own trials.

    But this story has been going on unfinished for a couple of years now, and I'm working hard to try and finish it up over the coming months. I'm starting to hit my stride again as a writer, and I plan on every other chapter I'm writing to be a Study chapter. Maybe once I finish up the current story arc of Midnight's Shadow I will spend a month or two just on Study to help move that story along so that I can give it a satisfactory conclusion one of these day.

    That said, I've sent off Chapter 19 of Study to my prereaders to pick over. I've hit a bit of a editing clot due to Bronycon and a lot of my prereaders hitting transition periods in their schedules due to coming/going from school, finals, and all that. But Chapter 19 should be released into the wild within the next couple of weeks.

Cloud Kicker might just have the wildest life of any pony in Equestria. That may just be why Princess Luna wants Twilight Sparkle to study the insanity that is Cloud Kicker's life for a sociology report.  Unfortunately for Twilight Sparkle, she is going to have to survive the circle of jealous friends, paramours, enemies, crazy co-workers and disappointed family members that surround this crazy pony. Will Twilight Sparkle be able to complete this assignment before it spins out of control, or will she be reduced to a neurotic mess?

A Winningverse Story.

Oh hell yes, it's finally here!

“Yes! A spit-take!” She pumped her hoof in excitement, completely unconcerned with the water that was dripping off her face. “I knew I could do it!”

I couldn't possibly imagine why this scenario seems so familiar.... *liarjack*

#3 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

This is good stuff. I was waiting for this come out just to get a taste, but I'll have to read the ones before this, which i am doing presently.

That first line: "Let's Bang." Killed me. That's just a great way to start off a story.

*edit: before featured*

#4 · 107w, 5d ago · 2 · · A Winning First Impression ·

Cloud Kicker, banging, victory, comedy. Seems legit. :twilightsmile:

Also stars Best Pony.

#5 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

Awesome start, ill be waiting to see where this goes. :raritywink:

#6 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

This story seems to show good promise.

I'll follow it and see how it turns out :pinkiesmile:

#7 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

HUZZAH!! The winningverse continues to grow! :twilightsmile:

#8 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

Love it! MOAR!

#9 · 107w, 5d ago · · · A Winning First Impression ·

My gosh... poor Twilight.

I think someone should get Cloud Kicker drunk and wake her up alongside one of Dash's closest friends with no memory of what happened.

Of course, we would know. :raritywink:

And then send her into a panic attack overdrive.

Or worse yet, wake up with Dash herself. :rainbowlaugh:

Wait, this is your FIRST fic :pinkiegasp:

This is great, Liked Faved Watched!

Great start! Very much looking forward to more.

Huh? Winning Pony side story? Approved by Chengar?

Must read.

Ahh haw haw haw haw haw haw. Laughing about all but the romance.

So very Twilight, think we can get Tara Strong to do some voice overs?

And Twilight, you should know better than to tempt fate like that with that last line. Tsk tsk.  :twilightoops:

There is no way i wont read this.:rainbowlaugh:

I was so happy that I did not have to deal with Cloud Kicker on a daily basis.

Oh, you had to say it, Twi.  Let the trolling begin...

Love this.  Favorited and have a thumbs-up.

Both characters (Cloud and Twilight) are bang-on (giggle).  Keep up the good work.  Like everyone else, I can't wait to see where this goes. :eeyup:

And more awesome InuHoshi art!  Win to the max! :yay:

Could have used another read through before posting but otherwise...fun little story. I think my favorite part was when Twilight tried to change the subject from the potential disaster of two elements of harmony dating....to Applejack and Rarity.

I also look forward to seeing how Twilight ends up getting assigned to studying Cloud Kicker, since she seems determined to not write the princesses about...this...oh. my. god. Is this you trying to tie into the chapter of Winning Pony with Luna?! Is THAT why Luna wants her to study Kicker? Because she's INTERESTED?! ... you magnificent bastard.

:rainbowhuh:  “It wouldn’t look good for the local weather manager to beat down her newest assistant weather manager, but don’t think I won’t do it if you cross the line.”

If only you knew, Twilight, if only you knew...

omg lol this is hillarious cloudkicker's personality is totally the best headcannon

That, was awesome. :yay:

And Twi, you'll end up respecting Cloud Kicker after you get to know her history a little better. :twilightsmile: Particularly if you get the full story about her and Fluttershy.... :twilightoops:

Couple typos here and there, but very well overall

Oh, how wrong you are, my dear Twilight... :facehoof:

>>1363562

The "Winningverse."

That is now a thing.  

>>1365044

Oh, you know how this fandom likes to set up silly fanon universes and continuities that seem totally incomprehensible to anyone outside the craze.

This is the same thing, I guess?

I always thought Cloud Kicker was really pretty

>>1365105

Winningness changes you man, it changes you :trollestia::yay:

"Silly" ain't quite the word for it.

  A guy of my stature should not twinge like a scared dog during a viewing of <episode goes here; Winningies will know the one>. Winningverse is to blame.

It's going to take me days to get that raw-nerve reactionary twinge outta my system, and then TLATOAWP will update and my emotions will be flayed again, repeating the cycle. And I'll read it, cause it'll be more than worth it. It's been muddlin' whole tracts of my headcanon. It's makin' for a whole chunk'o' tangent headcanon.

-stepping outside the "totally incomprehensible...craze" I revel in for a moment...- :facehoof:

Yeah, I'd really recomend TLATOAWP, on its merits that it's freakin' brilliant, than goes on to display something even more. Not many fics really sink their teeth into you to the extent or depth that Life and Times does. On merit of that alone does Study of Winning look to have excellent prospects, and this first chapter gives a solid perfomance up to what could be expected of it. Will follow this with keen expectations. :twilightsmile:

>>1365044

Well, I do seem to remember Chengar using that term in his blog entry that led me here, so it is in fact an canon thing, I just thought the term needed to be used more :derpytongue2:

:rainbowhuh: Who is cloud kicker? im guessing a background char.

“It wouldn’t look good for the local weather manager to beat down her newest assistant weather manager, but don’t think I won’t do it if you cross the line.”

Dat foreshadowing :unsuresweetie:

Haha, going from not knowing why she should feel worried, to being on the verge of a panic attack, in a matter of seconds. That's our Twilight.

...adorkable is too a word... *mutter*

This has much potential! We already know how good Cloud Kicker teasing Blossomforth can be. Adding in Twilight promises a touch more prudishness, a tad less embarassment, and a whole heckuva lot more nerdy overanalysis. Looking forward to the next chapter.

I was so happy that I did not have to deal with Cloud Kicker on a daily basis.

I was so happy that I did not have to deal with Cloud Kicker on a daily basis.

Wait, this was approved by Chengar? WOW, I just had to read to this...and it was splendid! This is really good, and I seriously can't wait for the next chapter. I'll give you a watch and a fav...and since I'm feeling generous, I'll give you a thumbs up too.:twilightsmile:

So... its a satellite story to TLaToTWP ... and an instant featured? :derpyderp1:

GOOD JOB CK! o/

AAAAAAAAAW YEAH! :rainbowdetermined2:

>>1364373>>1365932>>1365950

Tempting fate detected...:pinkiehappy:..Tactical Murphy inbound!  :pinkiecrazy:

>>1365192 And another one falls to The Winning Pony's irresistible charm.  Hooray.  What's that, twenty for the day? :ajsleepy:

>>1366718  Seems that way.  That's how I found it. The Winningverse.  It's impossible to resist it.  You could even say ... futile. :pinkiegasp:

Oh you. So much winning this measly single star is insufficient :rainbowlaugh:

And look who's number 1 on the featured board.

omygoshomygoshomygosh :rainbowkiss:

Looks good.:twilightsmile:

Edit: Ha! I knew this universe had a name.

>>1363745

Yep, this is my very first story, and I hope everyone enjoys it. I plan on one heck of a rollcoaster for all of this in true Winning Pony Fashion. Chenger and Comma have given me a huge amount of help also.

>>1364373

InuHoshi's art is fantastic in my opinion. I really hope she will do some fanart of my stuff also!

I'm certainly working to keep all the ponies in character, and let the hilarious inevitabilities happen when Cloud Kicker and Twilight interact.

>>1364434

Twilight does tend to not think things when she is on the panicked side of things. Poor Twilight is looking at potential disasters to both her left and right at the moment.

Maybe… :pinkiehappy: But I will say Twiligth getting her assignment will be covered in the next chapter. Also that I plan on fully revealing all the facts involving Luna and Cloud Kicker by the time the end credits roll. Luna may or may not have plans…

>>1365105

Yep, the Winningverse even has its own group page now. I would highly recommend reading The Incredibly Dense Mind of Rainbow Dash, and the Life and Times of a Winning Pony. They are both great stories in their own right, and the latter runs more or less concurrently with Study.

>>1365210

I hope to live up to your expectations! I have been working with Chenger to create a story that will very much be in the spirit of Winning Pony, and live up to its standards.

>>1365256

There is very much a Winningverse. We even have a group page to keep track of all the stories.

>>1365710

Cloud Kicker is a background pony for the show who Chenger has given some... personality to with The Life and Times of a Winningpony. If you haven't read that story I highly suggest it. Cloudy is all over the place in the show, and if you have a bunch of background ponies in the background, you can pretty much count on her being there.

>>1365839

Oh, I plan on playing up Cloud Kicker and Twilight's dynamic as much as I can for all the reasons you said. Trust me, there are plenty of fun and games to be had in the future.

>>1366718

Yep, this story is pretty much running concurrently with Winning Pony, and should add some insight into some of the things happening in that story in addition to adding a lot of things on its own.

And believe me, I am thrilled to see it featured. I've put a lot of work into this story, and I really hope everyone enjoys it!

>>1367499

Wohooo. I really hope everyone is enjoying the story. Plenty more great stuff to come, I promise.

Oooooooh I'm excited.

Could use a Metonym or a Synonym for bang perhaps. But as a whole, I liked it :yay:

Cloud Kicker is best background pony, and having Twilight be the straight mare to her shenanigans is too good to pass up.

#48 · 107w, 5d ago · · 1 · A Winning First Impression ·

So... Getting a look at CK from an outside perspective. Gonna be...Interesting. Might help confirm if she's someone I can actually form anything beyond contempt for.

I Would Love To - Steve Vai

I still find it bizarre and funny how sexual Steve Vai's stuff can be. It's like he writes his stuff specifically to be the soundtrack to an '80's porno.

Oh god, this is going to be a lot of fun.:rainbowlaugh:
