Hello again, faithful followers! Here today with a relatively short blog post about what we all have planned.
GMP and I are at it again, and this time we're using a joint account; Datsuzoku!
To quote GMP:
Datsuzoku is a key piece of the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi, and is one of the seven aesthetic principles of traditional Zen philosophy. It is perhaps best described as "Freedom from habit or formula. Escape from daily routine or the ordinary. Unworldly. Transcending the conventional."
I'll not get too deep into it, since all the information is there in that profile, but that's our shared account. Any future endeavors he and I embark on together will likely be posted there. (Fear not! I'll share news here as well, so you'll never be at a loss for what's going on; though I do recommend following this account as well, just in case.)
But as for this new project, Grand Moff Pony and I are putting words to pictures, in the form of the illustrious AssassinMonkey's 'First Contact War' universe! We'll be detailing the journey of a unicorn whose pledged her life to the Sun, and earned Celestia's blessing to use against the Griffons that threaten an early pre-Nightmare Moon Equestria.
Set in an alternate universe to allow our ideas to flow freely, this adventure/epic is set to go OVER 200k words (That's the length of Archmage and then some.)
We're trying for a regular update schedule as well, with bi-weekly chapter publishing. If this proves too difficult, we may switch to monthly or more, as long as we're providing quality content for you all.
As it stands, 'First Contact War' the story is set to publish later on today (Saturday the 22nd,) around noon Central time. (You can do the math from there, friends.) I'm going to sleep now, but I will provide a link ON THIS BLOG when I awake, provided the story passes moderation. (Like we're going to have issues with that )
So that's all! Thank you all for hanging around this long, and I hope you'll join GMP and I for our journey with Datsuzoku and the First Contact War universe.
P.S. I'm tagging Archmage because the two stories will share a lot of common themes; with the development of a badass unicorn character, and a lot of Equestrian world-building. First Contact War will be rated Teen, however, so if the erotic bits of Archmage were a turn-off for you, this story might just be right up your alley.
P.P.S. >inb4 Madness Brony hate on both this blog post and the story as soon as it publishes.

LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT THE PRETTY.
Warning: Dubstep and Gore. (Some questionable themes.)
Also: the first chapter of our new story is finished and gone up for editing. For those of you who missed the comment on the last blog, we're expanding on Assassin Monkey's 'First Contact War' universe. Go read 'Solar Rays' by Grand Moff Pony iffen you want to see what we're aiming for.

I've started pre-reading for Equestria After Dark. That's still a thing, for those of you who have forgotten. You should go check them out! I approve stories on a semi-frequent basis (about once every other day, give or take.)

Brace yourselves, Loyal's back in the saddle. And he's not alone.
Production of my next story begins tonight, with a chapter ready (heavens willing) Monday morning. Sadly, a wait is in order for you folks. (I KNOW! Three months without an update and now there's MORE of a wait!) The next story I'm working on (Without specifics) is anticipated to be teen-rated, and will take place in a pre-Luna-banishment Equestria AU.
It's late into my work day and I'm trying to type this on a phone so I'll keep it brief.
TL;DR, Loyal's back with Grand Moff Pony at his side, and we've got an ambitious plan for you all.
