    After Season Four

    Well... that was some finale...

    I figured that since I finally recovered from my final episode mania... mostly... I'd give y'all an update on my projects. Want Me, Need Me, Love Me is, sadly, not much closer to completion. I did add about a thousand words to the first chapter, but I deleted them shortly after because I simply wasn't happy with my writing. Sorry guys, gotta be happy with what I write. I'm just happy that the finale didn't wreck any of the canon I built for this story (and, in fact, may help it). I understand that could be a major problem in some of these works. (Eyes dart uncomfortably towards The Sordid Truth)

    Speaking of which: other projects. The rest remain on hiatus for now, especially including The Sordid Truth.  However I DID just get an interesting idea for a one-shot that I may toss up here if/when I actually write it. Interestingly, this is the first new idea I've had for a pony fic in over a year now. Man, this finale was REALLY inspirational.

    But I think the most important thing this finale has provided me (aside from a renewal of love for the show and some new cool ideas) is an important lesson I want, nay, need to make sure I get through in the next arc of WMNMLM:

    As long as Twilight has her friends, she can overcome any obstacle...

    And With Strange Aeons...

    Filles and gentlecolts, nearly two months after my emotional and spontaneous blog post, I can finally say that progress is being made on the next set of chapters for Want Me, Need Me, Love Me.

    Now, I don't want to instill you all with false hope. After all, I have made fanfic promises in the past only to disappoint not only my readers, but also myself. I can only say for certain that I have written the first 2500 words of Arc II: Chapter One and that I only need to write a scene or two more before I will be content with uploading it. However I do also intend to build a bit of a "backlog" before I post as, after all, I don't want to leave you in a year-long slump again. Also I am sticking by my promise to NOT promise a deadline as I cannot predict when you will see the next chapter. But rest assured, it will be done. I need to keep writing it. I did not post this story just to raise hopes and...

    Ahem. Where was I?

    Once I the second Arc takes a firmer shape than it holds right now, I will post a Teaser for it, a little written trailer to get you excited for the story's continuation. Expect the next chapter not long after that. As for the Sordid Truth, my other surprisingly popular story, I am not actively working on it as of this moment. However I do have the second chapter's word document open on my laptop, just in case creativity strikes me.

    In short, I am sorry for the delay, don't glue yourself to your computer, but this story will live again.

    Mess

    I am a Mess

    I get distracted easily. I get locked into cycles of procastination and self-loathing that can destroy academic and creative works. I lose faith in myself and my ability to accomplish my goals. I collapse. I fall apart. I am a mess.

    But I never, EVER, forget.

    I cannot make promises. I cannot set deadlines. I cannot guarantee anything.

    But I want... I NEED my first great story too much to let it die. Besides, I've already got the next four acts planned out.

    In short: I am less of a mess now, so I am writing again.

    Critical Mess II: Electric Boogaloo

    Finals: Done

    Personal Crisis: Dealt With

    Drive to Write: Restored

    Plushie: ...none, unfortunately. Need to get on that.

    Three out of four ain't bad. Let's get back to work.

    Good day FIMFiction fans and what a day it is! This is me writing to inform all of you that I am, in fact, very much alive thanks to the power of friendship and a little bit of necromancy. And guess what? I'm going to be updating within the month! And what will it be? The much-demanded continuation of the surprise hit The Sordid Truth? The opening of the next Want Me, Need Me, Love Me story arc featuring Chrysalis? Or maybe secret Project: FOURSCORE, drawn from the depths of my twisted imagination? The answer?

    I HAVE NO IDEA!

    That's right folks! I'm working on all three stories simultaneously, and they have an equal chance of being completed very soon. Input is welcome, but ultimately it's going to be completely random which is going to be updated next. Are you excited? 'Cause I'm excited. I've never been so excited! Well, except for maybe the time I learned John de Lancie was Discord and I became a brony, but really, who can compete with that?!

    Stay tuned!

    A Plain, Boring, Update

    Unfortunately, I have lost my creative energy. Duffman18 has promised to return it, but I have my suspicions. Still, it would be wrong for me to not update you on what my writing plans are even though I haven't per say written anything.

    October Hiatus: I'm sorry to report that with homework assignments up to my neck, my recent illness, and other commitments I will not have as much time as I would like to write. The Halloween one-shot I promised? Not gonna happen unfortunately, as I have too many ideas but I can't think of a way to properly implement them. So, you're not going to see any updates this October... though I've broken promises before.

    The Sordid Truth: Contrary to some comments I've read, this is probably the next thing I'm going to update... if I can get around to writing the next chapter. Ever imagined what you want to write but couldn't figure out how to write it? Yeah... that's The Sordid Truth.

    Project KAFKA II: The next story arc for Want Me, Need Me, Love Me is shaping up to be rather nice... though a little plot problem has arisen. I know where the story begins and I know where it ends... but for the life of me I can't figure out how to move the characters from Point A to B. I have ideas but they're all formless and abstract. That and I can't stop thinking about KAFKA III, IV, and V and how much I can't wait to write that...

    And the Rest...: Let's see what other stories I have snippets of written... Self-Insert that comments on the relationship between author and creation... Rule 63 shipping story where Rule 63 isn't the focus... Terrible Twilunestia... The MoonLight fic where Nightmare Moon isn't all mind-rapey or real-rapey... A Portal crossover starring OCs... Terrible Twilunestia... non-shipping MoonLight involving alternate dimensions... Terrible Twilunestia...

    Oh god Crit, stick to one story...

    I'll see you later when I have something to report.

    -CriticalMess

    PS - YES, there are THREE started Twilunestia fics on my laptop. Three. I'm serious.

    PPS - This may come as a shock because of my stories, but Twilight is not my favorite pony.

Twilight Sparkle finds a book in the library.

Twilight Sparkle reads aforementioned book.

Twilight Sparkle's life is thrown upside down, her view of her teacher shattered, and her friends pitted against each other.

Everything will return to normal.

Alright mate, you get a like.  It's well formatted and the premise is completely out of left field.  If you can keep this going, more power to you.  

-Chessie

#2 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

@Description: The fifth one. The fifth statement is false.

#3 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Damn . . . that's all I can say. This shall be interesting. Will be watching.

#4 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Good story so far! I can't say I've read a story like this before, so I can't wait for an update! For now, I'm going to read your other stories.

#5 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Fascinating. You have my permission to proceed.

#6 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

I'll keep an eye out for possible updates.

#7 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

MOREZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WILL MAKE YOU LOVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:D

:yay:

#8 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Secondary to your other stories or not, this deserves some attention. The premise alone is worth the read!

Gold star & thumbs up for you.

#9 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

This... is... hilarious. Favorited.

#10 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

YAY! Moar of your work! :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

I like where this is going. I don't think I have read an alicorn transformation story like this. Also, not sure if Celestia is trolling. :trollestia:

#12 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Passes by... View count at 69... Epic win. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#13 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

well...this is a shock but one I cant totally deal with... wonder if this relationship, assuming it develops as I think it will, will be a three-way thing...

#14 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh good gravy.  :rainbowlaugh:

#15 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

This sounds promising, and I love the premise. I'm a sucker for Twilight to Alicorn fics, and this one hits all the right notes. Can't wait for the next part... uh... whenever it comes out.

#16 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

So Luna is actually Celestia's longtime marefriend?

Oh, well. Alright. :rainbowhuh:

...I can dig it.

#17 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

What.

SOOOOO many whats.

BUT SO MUCH EPIC AS WELL. AAAAAAAAAAAAHH~~!!!

#18 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

why would you do this???? You put out this awesomeness with no intent to get back to it any time soon? That's not nice. Not nice at all.:applecry:

#19 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1377952

I'm sorry, but if this really does get popular I'll be right back to it after the first story arc of my other story. Fortunately that should only be two more chapters.

#20 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh my god, it all makes sense now.  Like this story people, like it so that criticalmess must suffer greater pressure than ever before!  Just kidding man, good job.

#21 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

HOLY CRAP D: I LOVE THIS. OMFG I FREAKIN LOVE THIS STORY :D Twilight is busy having a combined stroke/heartattack/aneurysm AND I CAN'T PUT THIS STORY DOWN :pinkiecrazy: Tracking. Upthumbing. And, if I'm not already, I am WATCHING this author. @_@ Like a goddamn hawk. :D

#22 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1377566 Mother of God.

#23 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378100 It is false in that there are not one, but two false statements, one of which is the fifth.

#24 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378114

But then that would make the statement true as the qualification of "one of these statements is false" has been satisfied. In fact, it has been satisfied twice over by itself being false, thus making it true. Logically, the only statement that can be false is one of the four above it.

You're Welcome :twilightsmile:

#25 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh:

Oh geeze! I was just giggling for the entire last bit of this story! :pinkiehappy: Twilight freaking out is a lot of fun to read and this time she actually has reason to go nuts!

Oh poor Twilight... well, at least its not death by snoo snoo! -You win an Internet if you get that reference! :trollestia:

If we must wait... well, we must! But this story is DEFINITELY worth continuing. :yay:

#26 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378126 It depends on your interpretation of the term. Strictly, "One of these statements is false" would imply "Exactly one of these statements is false." But if you more broadly define it as "At least one of these statements is false," then the possibility of the fifth being said statement brings forth a paradox (wherein the statement being false renders itself true, a simple liar paradox). Assuming the Novikov self-consistency principle, the probability of the broader definition being true is zero. Thus, the fifth statement may or may not be false, in which case the number of other statements in the description that are false may be equal to or exceed one.

At first I was like :ajbemused:

then I was :ajsleepy:

but eventually... :applejackunsure:

I was :ajsmug:

You got my approval to write another chapter... but not till we get more Changling Twilight...

#28 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378193

Well... your mom...

:ajbemused:

Stop looking at me like that Applejack... Okay, fine, you win this round. BUT I WILL RETURN! (Spoke Capsule) :trixieshiftleft:

#29 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378202

Did I mention I wrote this months ago, before even After the Sun? Back when I was still experimenting with story ideas? I may have cleaned it up recently, but its plot bears all of the markings of my early creative mind.

#30 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Princest shipping?

I am soooo totally in.

#31 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378205 I like how you didn't point out that, through my complex chain of logic, I did nothing more than confirm that the number of false statements is equal to or greater than one, which may have been implied in the first place.

I also like how you didn't point out that the Novikov self-consistency principle only applies to time travel paradoxes :twilightsheepish:

#32 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

I don't care if this gets featured,

It's featured. I don't care if its secondary, I want to see the rest of the story eventually. :pinkiehappy:

#33 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Panicking Twilight is best Twilight.

It should be interesting to see where this goes.

Also, Clover is Luna? That's pretty awesome as well.

#35 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

That is both horrifying and hilarious. Horror for Twi, hilarity for us.

#37 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

You lowercased Twilight at some point - copy paste on a touch screen s a joke, cannot point out. ast

#38 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

my god

#39 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Solid concept with plenty of room for expansion and shenanigans.

Have an obligatory :moustache:

#40 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Will track and read in a couple hours when I'm done writing:trixieshiftright:

#41 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Spoiler Alert: "One of these statements is false" is the false statement. :trollestia:

But this is a most interesting story. I will follow this.

#42 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

This does bring up an interesting question: the legend says that Nightmare Moon was created due to Luna being upset that ponies didn't like her night.  But with the things revealed here... what other causes were involved, either alongside or instead of the classical reason?

#43 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh, also:

"Twi?" Rainbow Dash carefully pulled Twilight's hooves off of her shoulders. "Why don't we slow down this crazy train for a second?"

THERE ARE NO BRAKES ON THE CRAZY TRAIN~! :heart:

#44 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

oh right you are the one that wrote Want me Need me Love me that is a good story, you have a natch for the stress out Twilight stuff, though i have to say the Luna being Clover the Clever bit is interesting, but damn man that was total Trollestia if i have ever seen any

#45 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Hahaha, this is awesome and funny! This funesome! :pinkiehappy:

#46 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>> see character tags

Good Lord, Twilestia? Meh, gonna check it out, see what happens

>> after reading

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Ok, this is so awesome I can't even. Alicorn by snoo-snoo. It does raise the question tho, how did Celestia become the way she is? And what of Cadence? Will she be here too?

#47 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Great story, also does anypony know how to switch from thumbs down to thumbs up, I clicked the wrong one.

#48 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

How did I know... they always, ALWAYS make it to the bar...

#49 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378432

I normally don't... but I'll thumbs up my own story to offset yours. As long as you're sincere.

#50 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

I have a feeling this is all a misunderstanding.

But I hope it's not, because that would be way funnier.:pinkiehappy:
