    Hi

    So, Im going to be honest right now.

    Im not sure if this is really that exciting to me anymore

    I mean, sure, making my own stories wrapped around this cute, whimsical universe of ours was fun during DTF and maybe a bit afterwards, but now.. I just cant really find the drive or want to write, it isnt that fun anymore for me.

    That being said, im tempted to try and make it fun again. My idea would be to introduce another fic, a series similar to DTF, but just to write it off the top of my head like i used to. I think one of the big issues here is that i just got too involved with it, then i got too nit-pickey, and then i just got bored

    So, what do you guys think? Would you like to see me make an actual return?

    Throwing in the towel?

    Just recently, I've been considering quitting the whole fan-fiction thing all together. I mean, I told you guys I was 'back' and now I've barely made any progress on anything. My short terms have become mundane to work on and I can't seem to start a decent long-term story. Now, as I think about this it is a hard decision to make. As writing stories and having people read and like them is one of my pleasures in life. So, if I were to quit, would it be a complete resignation? I'd personally like to think not, but it would probably mean that updates from me would be doubly as rare as they are now, which is saying something. I often look back to how productive i was at producing literature before and compare it to now. And I can't help but feel disappointed in myself. What happened to me pumping out a chapter every week? As i question this and myself, the first answer is of course, the amount of content i produced then and now. Before, a 2,000 word chapter sufficed as good for me. Now, when I write I write upwards of 10,000 words, as most of you have seen. But deep down inside, I know that laziness has something to do with it. And then I question why I'm so lazy. I'm not usually, but maybe it's that i've lost motivation or ideas? What ever the answer is, I'm not sure.

    It would break my heart to let down all of those that continue to support me, though it is a small number. I'm no RobCakeRan (Though i have spoken to him), but I'm still loyal to my fans.

    But this all brings me to a question of you guys. How many of you still like my work and miss my stories? Do you even care anymore or remembered that you followed me in the first place? Do you think i did a good job before with my work? And what would you want to see if I were to stay?

    Call it fishing for compliments, stroking my ego, or just telling me what i may already know. But right now, as down in the dumps as I am from almost everything you can mention, I could really use the motivation/ideas.

    Thanks

    1-Shot vs. Long-Term

    So if you follow my blog at all or even care about what I write, You may have noticed that I am now back in the game of writing. Now, it has been roughly 2-3 months since I have finished Deeper Than Friendship, and since then I have managed to write a very minuscule number of fics. Of course, half of this time I was on hiatus but that still doesn't excuse the lack of activity.

    So, the question is posed, why do One-Shots take me so long? It's just a simple 2,000-10,000 word story, right? Well, that's where my problem begins. I don't ever know how many words I'm going to make a story/chapter. I can set a minimum or a maximum for myself, but sometimes i may break both. Since I believe that spending hours on end drafting out every single aspect of a story is very mundane, I usually make a rough outline and wing it. That's why some of you may have noticed how Deeper Than Friendship was all over the place. Granted, it was my FIRST fic, but I never had an outline for it. In my opinion, if I can wing it off of a rough idea, then I can enjoy making stories. However, when applying this theory to attempting one-shots, it sadly fails. I start out writing a one-shot feeling like I will be able to accomplish it in a week and have it be almost exactly what I want. But, since my ideas always change as I write, This is not always the case. I'll be midway into a story and get a new idea that requires me to backtrack, rewrite, and redo a lot of the work. And then, I won't even like THAT idea. And eventually, it will get to the point where I feel as if I am forcing myself to open up a word document and type 14,000 words to make a story that I don't believe is good. And as an artist who is very critical of his own work, I cannot upload anything that I feel is half-assed or not my best work. That is why my Short Stories folder only has 3 finished stories and about 20-something unfinished/scrapped stories.

    This being the case, I may want to try and go back to the model I used for DTF. Get an idea, make a rough outline that is very flexible to my ideas, and just write what I want in segments. This is why i LOVED writing DTF. I felt that I wouldn't have to sit down and spend hours making a short fic that doesn't suit the need of all of my imagination and aspirations. It also feels like way too much work for me. I have school, chores, homework, and on top of that I may be getting a job soon (Most likely not, hopefully). When I get home and finish my homework, I feel tired and I just want to sit down and relax. And Writing is something I can only do with energy and want. Allowing myself to write a bi-weekly fiction in 2,500-5,000 word segments seems like a perfect balance for me. So, with this information, I have a question for anyone willing to answer it.

    Would you prefer that I focus on one long-term story at a time and then in between that write one-shots?

    OR

    Would you prefer that I stick to one-shots for a tad longer?

    Leave a comment below, also, leave a comment about your opinion on my work and what you would like to see!

    Don't be afraid to be brutal, I crave criticism on my work, just make sure it's HELPFUL and not DESTRUCTIVE.

    I'm back!

    So, I decided to take the month of September off as sort of an unofficial hiatus of sorts (Sorry i didn't tell you guys). So, during that month i didn't write any fan-fiction, brainstorm much, just did graphic art and took a break. Now, the reason i took a break wasn't because i hate all of you and don't care about you at all. No, the reason was that i just had a lot piling on top of me and i wanted a breather from writing to get back into the swing of things. First thing was that i was starting school again, and my teachers have been very 'generous' with the work load they have been assigning to me.

    Also... Borderlands 2 released...

    Team Fortress 2 updated...

    I got the Humble Indie Bundle...

    and there's CS:GO...

    Please forgive me, I'm only human :(. At least i'm holding back from playing Dishonored to begin writing for you guys again!

    All jokes and horrible excuses aside, I've begin writing again and making ideas and brainstorming for future fictions! And after being out of the game for so long, I've got a plethora of new ideas to play with! Right now I'm working on a One-Shot that will be my first attempt (Unless you count Things We Underestimate) at a sad fiction!

    Have a preview:

    Rainbow Dash groaned in frustration as the annoying ring of her alarm sounded through her bedroom like a siren. She didn’t budge however; she was going to win this time. If she just waited long enough, maybe the stupid contraption would stop itself. Seconds passed, followed by minutes. The cyan mare’s irritation only increased as she desperately tried to block out the agitating wail with her pillow. Finally she had enough; with much effort, the mare pulled herself above the covers and proceeded to silence her enemy.

    Dash yawned as she stretched out the joints in her legs and wings. The Pegasus sighed, wishing her friends had never persuaded her to buy an alarm clock. Her silent anger subsided however as she looked up to see the light pouring through her windows. With a small smile, she heaved herself out of bed and stumbled out of her room.

    See how sad that is?! Rainbow Dash is tragically ripped from her love, sleep, by the evil alarm clock!

    Oh, you want a real example...?

    Fine :P

    She took a step towards the edge of the mountain, peering down at the mess of rocks below, the ocean’s water brushing up calmly against them, and slowly receding after words. But her attention was yanked from it as her focus drifted to the night sky once more. Luna’s moon was at its brightest on this night, and it shun down a light that could even put Celestia’s sun to shame. The luminescent light emitting from it allowed her to gaze upon the stars that twinkled beside it. They were just as beautiful and radiant, if not more so, than the moon itself.

    ‘It’s funny… on such a perfect night…’ the mare thought ironically to herself as her eyes remained locked tightly upon the sky, as if it somehow held all of her answers. The answers to all of her problems, the solutions to fix her life. Without thinking, she kicked a lone pebble off of the edge, watching it tumble on down its path to the water, ending with a small splash. She gulped, imaging how a much larger form would take that fall. Would it be painless and quick? Or would be a slow, horror filled, jagged path to the bottom

    There we go! Now, I'll be spending more time on this over the next few days/weeks/years or so and Hopefully it will be released soon!

    Thanks for sticking with me guys :)

    Cheers

Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash have always been great friends, looking out for each other and sticking together like two good Pegasus pals would. But all it took was one faithful night, one confession of love, to send their long-term friendship towards a new and deeper level. Now having to deal with whether they should be together, whether they even love each other, and how their friends and others may react, they must face the challenges this possibly new-found love could bring. But the question is, will they survive, and will close friendship or romance prevail over all else in the end?

you sir are awesome. i didn't read your previos one but this is just awesome. the only thing i don't like is it's another dash and shy one again. that's not a bad thing but you see my reason. oh well your awesome and so is your work. good luck with the next chapter my fellow writer.:raritystarry:

I can never get enough FlutterDash, never. <3

I usually don't like a fxf fic, but this is an exception. It's sweet. Too sweet. ( no such thing is there?)

:derpytongue2:

Mmm, scrumptious flutterdash.

There isn't a lot of characterization, and other than a bit of shyness from Fluttershy in the middle, you could probably alter the trip to be on the ground, then switch out the characters to anything you wanted, and with a a bit more editing make it about anything. It isn't poorly written, and you can't do too much with the length, but slipping in some "I love [x] about you" is an easy way to start.

>>112804

Thanks for the advice, i'll take note of it for future reference

Oh wow, new chapter just when i top off at 400 views, Well enjoy the new one Everypony!

Interesting, very interesting.. Looking forward to the next update. :pinkiesmile:

so let me see if i got this straight. in the next chapter it's flutter shy birthday + :rainbowlaugh: + everyone else equals = i'm very curious know.:moustache:

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :)

Heh, I read the description - it sounds almost like a reversal of my own Flutterdash fic, going just by that :rainbowlaugh:

Gave it a read - you got some good stuff here. Keep it up.

>>115360

Wow it's an honor to hear that from an author i'm a fan of. I really quite liked your FlutterDash fic. It was actually what inspired me to rewrite this one so it was somewhat good. Thank you for you're support! :heart:

wow...this series is AMAZING, you are a great author...im very much looking forward to the next part....i always love a good flutterdash fic.

Their friends almost have it figured out.

you are the best author EVER i could read these stories untill i die and then more after that!

I know what's gonna happen next, but i'm not gonna say it because 9/10 bronies probably are thinking the same exact thing.

>>115788 Wow, you reckon? Hah! Someone's honoured by me!

Just kidding. That means a lot to me as well :rainbowkiss:

Teen rating for the malequessients wanting clop

great story it needs more plot tho and a little longer on chapters plz

u earned my stars even if its not done

This has become my favorite FlutterDash EVER! <3

Cant wait for the next parts!

To everypony who is just now viewing this sereis, no i did not make all of the chapters on the 8th. First one was made on the 5th, the second one on the 7th, and the third one on the 8th. They only say they are all on the 8th because i just edited them today and gave them titles

sigh twilight sickens me she cant just do that

Twilight y u no can accept them!:fluttercry:

You made Twi quite the b--ch didnt you :P

I don't like this moron version of Twilight...

if Twilight does anything, i'll break the fourth wall and take care of this.

>>123588

>>123609

To the people saying they don't really like how i made twilight a b--tch moron... well that wasn't my intention. I just wanted to her to be misguided like she has been in the show before. Think kind of like the templars from Assassin's Creed. What she wants is good(None of her friends to get hurt) but the way she wants to go about it(Doing something to break FS and RD up) is bad.

....dammit, Twi. Continue down this train of thought and I'll see to it Celestia makes a nice purple unicorn addition to the moon. <<

>>123796

The problem is that Twilight seems to have little reason for thinking the way she does. She acts as a person who has seens a copule of bad breakups and how it affects a circle of friends, but as far as we know she actually should have little to no expirience in the matter. Anchoring her behavior to some unfortunate event in her past would probably be helpful in reinforcing the misguided vibe you were going for.

Weird twist. I like it.

>>125522

Not a bad idea, i'll say that

Very well thought out good work

i rather enjoy your fiction

Hrm. Want more.

That was really good, nice work cant wait to dive into the other chapters

Nice This chapter made me scream "DAMMIT TWILIGHT" good thing no ones home haha keep up the good work

#39 · 149w, 21h ago · · · Flashback ·

read the five chapters in one sitting, i honestly cant wait for more, i really need something to follow now that hearts aflutter is on hiatus

#40 · 148w, 6d ago · · · Flashback ·

This is the best story I have ever read don't stop writing it I would be vary vary vary sad :fluttercry:

#41 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

I caught one little mistake: "Fluttershy was equally amazed by Dash’s cyan colored eyes. They were like perfect round amethyst jewels that twinkled when you looked into them."

Fluttershy has blue eyes, Rainbow's eyes are magenta-ish.

Other than that, awesome chapter!

#42 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

I have liked all of the chapters. :rainbowhuh::fluttershysad:

#43 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

Omg that was the best one yet I can't believe. Twilight would do that :pinkiegasp:

#44 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

4 word's twilight is a bitch

#45 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

OMG :pinkiegasp:

#46 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

This is amazing Sent chills down my spine at the end there. cant wait for chapter 7

#47 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

Few punctuation mistakes here and there, otherwise great story editing wise.

Man, I hate cliffhangers. An annoying, yet successful technique for stories. :raritydespair:

Don't keep us waiting too long.

It is ironic that, in Twilights attempt to stop the group from fracturing she is driving a divide between herself and everpony else

#49 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

>>145330

Ya it is. But Twilight believes that if she does this, then even if the group suffers repercussions, it will be way less severe than if she allows it to go on for too long to the point where those repercussions would break their group apart. :moustache:

#50 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Danger ·

Don't finish on cliffhangers! or at least post a new chapter son
