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!

9w, 8hBUCK 2014 Fanfiction Panel4 comments · 149 views
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
(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!)

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!
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!

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!
It is about Breezies, but EVEN SO give it a go!

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:
Trixie offered a coy smile to the beautiful filly who sat across the table from her. She gave a flick of her hair and raised a glass. "Trixie never thought she would meet a pony as wonderful as you" she pouted. Her partner raised a glass at the same time.
Trixie clinked the glass against the mirror, which was propped against the chair on the opposite side of the table. "Oh Trixie!" she swooned. "I should have done this sooner!" She blushed. Her reflection blushed. This was the greatest date she had ever been on.
With a passionate swipe of her hoof, she knocked away the table, throwing herself at her reflection. Her reflection did the same. That was what she liked about herself, she thought: she was always good at doing what she wanted. "Oh Trixie, take me now!"
She started to kiss her reflection. Her kiss was a bit harder and flatter and colder than she had expected, but it was still good. She wrapped her hooves about the mirror and leant in. "Oh Trixie!" she gasped. "I've always loved you, from the moment I saw you!" The mirror looked back lovingly and returned the statement.
"I couldn't imagine anything better than this, my love!" she softly purred to the mirror. Her horn started to softly glow, and then, there was a tapping on her shoulder.
"Oh really?" smiled Trixie as she stood behind Trixie. Trixie recoiled. So did her reflection.
The second Trixie grinned smugly. "Oh Trixie. I'm a magical clone, created by your love for the most perfect unicorn in existence - you!" Trixie leaned in to embrace Trixie, who kissed her deeply back. They leant against the mirror, and Trixie's reflection joined in the three-way hug.
"This is really the best!" Trixie cried. "Me and two favourite ponies: me and me!"
At this point, the door to Trixie's caravan crashed open. "STOP TRIXIE, I AM HERE FROM THE FUTURE TO STOP YOU ACCIDENTLY KILLING YOUR MOTHER!" Standing in the doorway was Trixie, but older, her hair longer and whiter, more years visible on her face.
She stood awkwardly, watching the three-way tryst going on. "Oh, well... I think I took the wrong turning somewhere. I was supposed to be..."
Trixie lifted her head from being buried in Clone Trixie's mane. She waved a hoof to Future Trixie. "Trixie says it can wait, beautiful unicorn. Come!"
Future Trixie trotted over to Trixie and ran her horn down her back sensuously. Clone Trixie started to kiss Reflection Trixie, and Reflection Trixie rubbed against Future Trixie.
The quad-Trixie tryst was underway, when another figure appeared in the door. Outwardly it resembled a blue unicorn with silver hair and a purple hat, but instead of eyes were a visor, a red light glowing.
"DISENGAGE SMUG MODE!" Robot Trixie announced loudly, trotting towards the pile of Trixies. "ENGAGE OPERATION NARCISSISM!"
Soon the room was full of five Trixies, all having their way with each other, in the most beautiful menagerie imaginable. "Oh!" Trixie cried as Robot Trixie and Future Trixie kissed her mane. "Oh, I can't imagine anything better than this!"
"Buckle up fillies!" came a gruff voice from the door. A tall masculine blue unicorn with a silver goatee and purple hat stood there, surveying the scene with a broad grin on his face. "Now Trixies," said Parallel-Universe Trixie. "This is where it starts to get REALLY complicated!"
