    Dancer Update

    You probably saw my last post, but I've been working overtime on the Dancer ever since. Expect my final(?) hurrah very soon.

    That's All, Folks!

    I've "quit" this site I think three times now—that wasn't any good. Oh well. Stuff happens.

    As you're well aware, I've been inactive for some time. I still pop into skype chats, make the occasional blog post, etc etc. I'm not going to make this dramatic or anything, but I think this is the true end for my time here on fimfic. Not 100% quitting cold turkey like I claimed before, but a realistic closing statement that you likely won't see many, if any, more updates from me in the foreseeable future, if ever. Writing is still a passion of mine, but while the site isn't terrible, it just lost it's luster on me for good. I'm sort of in a similar boat to RainbowBob, except replace his serious gripes with his own life and the site to me being a busy university student that has a million things going on.

    Perhaps I'll update the occasional thing when I'm up late at night with nothing to do, but really, this is my closing statement. I had a blast, and I know I've said that three times now, but this time it truly is the end. Dead serious. Thanks for everything, guys.

    I really do care about you guys. Thanks for making my time here great, and don't hesitate to message me on skype or steam if you wish. Besides all of my followers and everyone I've met (don't get teary now, I'll still be here from time to time as I said before, just in a limited quantity), there are a lot of people that have become very good friends of mine, and I'd like to thank you all as a big group rather than as individuals. You're all great people, and I'm sure I won't stop talking to you anytime soon.

    So that's it. My coda. You know what that word does to me, though? Coda? It makes me feel like shit. Most of my stories received lukewarm responses in terms of viewership, but the one story that has considerable progress into it and is the true story that I'm the most proud of is The Dancer. Coda was supposed to be the final chapter, but this absence is going to make that possibility a lot less likely. There have been a lot of people dedicated to that story, and I know you're really anxious to see the end just as much as I want to finish it.

    Ah, fuck it. Guess I can offer one last hurrah with the final chapters of The Dancer. If I do finish it, watch out for my next blog, which would likely be my last blog I'll write here.

    Of course, this could be my last one. Hopefully it isn't, but eh.

    Cheers.

Applejack left her childhood blanket in Appleloosa with Bloomberg, choosing to keep the memories rather than the physical object. She winds back up with it, although not on terms she would have liked.

Cool story bro; sisterhood FTW!

#2 · 110w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

As much as I want to say something incredibly good about this story, I find I'm blinded by the cuteness of it. I'm glad I managed to find this before it disappeared.

And seriously, Applebloom is the best sister ever.

Read this earlier, and saw it mentioned again by none other than Vargas! So, I felt giving you a nice comment about how much I liked your story was only fair! Really sweet and reminds me of something my smallest sister did for me this year (not knitting or anything, but remembering something and being so perfectly timed, it made me teary...in a good way!)

Anyway, have a like, and a Fav!!! :pinkiehappy:

#4 · 110w, 4d ago · · ·

Touching in a way few fictions are these days. Very well done! :eeyup:

#5 · 110w, 4d ago · · ·

Excuse me for just a moment while I assess this situation.

D'AWWWW!

So incredibly cute and well done. Fiercely warming, surely even to the hardest of hearts.


I approve!

It shouldn't be knitting. A knitted scarf, a knitted sweater, sure. But you don't KNIT a blanket, or a quilt.

You SEW a blanket. If Apple Bloom learned to sew, I could believe she sewed a blanket together. Knitting can't make a decent blanket, especially not the kind of blanket that you could put on a bed.

Plus, it would also have been more heartwarming if Apple Bloom was learning to sew/knit to earn her cutie mark in sewing/knitting. Then, after she learns about Applejack's blanket from Braeburn's letter, she would sew it together, choosing to put her knowledge to use for somepony other than herself. (And sewing something as big as a blanket would likely take several days, not just one or two, especially if Apple Bloom is still a beginner.) This way, it sounds less like Bloom was plotting this whole thing right from the start.

But that ending? Thumbsup, and a D'AAAWWW.

#7 · 110w, 4d ago · · ·

>>143372It took her two months to make, as there was a TWO MONTHS LATER header.

Glad you liked the ending, though!

All my feels! the daww level is through the roof!:fluttercry:

If this doesn't end up in the Featured box, then I'm a Purple Platypus.

My like, my feels, my moustaches. Take them all.:moustache:

>>1438633 Don't give up hope! Never surrender! Believe in the me that believes in yadda-yadda and all that jazz!

Put the word out to all your watchers and fans! This masterpiece of adaawwable must get more reads!

Also, I don't wanna be a purple platypus. My hat wouldn't fit properly.:applecry:

dawww

"They were some of the best ones our lil' tow has ever eaten! "

hem hem.

anyways that was a nice little tale. Though i guess Appleoosa is now a one tree town. o.o

#15 · 108w, 2d ago · · ·

This story managed to make my cold, rock-hard heart just the tiniest bit warmer. Well done.

#16 · 108w, 1d ago · · ·

Grats on EqD!

#17 · 108w, 1d ago · · ·

haha! I was hoping this one would hit EQD someday xD

Grats!

Oh sure, sewing's a valuable skill when Apple Bloom does it, but it's frou-frou nonsense when Rarity does it. I see how it is. :trollestia::trollestia:

>>1572596 Maybe it's because one sewed a blanket and the other sews fancy clothes in a town where ponies don't tend to wear them, aside from the occasional saddle, as street wear. :ajbemused:

Naaaaah, it because it's her precious little sister as opposed to a friend she normally wouldn't hang out with if not for Twilight. :ajsmug:

#22 · 19w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1572596 >>4131025 And besides, blankets are practical. Clothes however, on a species that, in-universe, noted how they usually go naked, more of a luxury.

Very touching read. I give it a solid 8.5 out of ten. :pinkiehappy:
