    Shut Up, Brain!

    It's really annoying when you have what should be a passing idea that becomes a permanent, insistent idea. I was talking with Steel Resolve the other day, and he was lamenting the dearth of Fluttershy/Rarity romance stories. Mostly joking, I told him that I'm going to write him one some day, and that it would suck, but I'd write it for him all the same.

    Strange thing is, I can't quit thinking about it!

    Now let's break down why this is ridiculous:

    1)  I don't have any freakin' time.  Seriously, I just semi-retired because I can't get three seconds together to write.

    2)  Fluttershy is not a favorite of mine.  I don't particularly care for writing her.

    3)  I've tried to write romance several times. It's never really come together, besides what I write with Steel.  I'm going to have to give him most of the credit on that one.

    4)  Every idea that I have for it is miserably sad.

    All of this points to it being a horrible idea, but my mind is fixated on it for some reason. I should probably just bang out a chapter so that I can look at it and say, "Oh, yeah. That's bad. Let's throw that in a drawer where no one will see it again."

    But it's something about challenge. I have all these great ideas that I think people will like and that I know I'll enjoy writing, but they aren't as challenging as writing a miserable romance about a character that I don't like in a genre that is my weakest. So my interest is all piqued. It crowds out all the thoughts that I need, and I find my imagination playing out scenes of a story I don't want to be working on.

    Why, brain? Why?!

    Ugh.

    Story Recommendation #3

    Wow.  It's been a long time since I've read a story that I liked well enough to recommend.  Yeesh.

    So let's discuss Spring is Dumb by HoofbitingActionOverload.  As is the case with these things, I'm going to try to avoid spoilers, but what is below this might contain them.  Consider yourself warned!  Warned, I say!

    This is a romantic comedy, and romance really isn't my genre.  I like the idea of it, but I find most stories to be generally overwrought, and no category has more offenders in that department than romance.  And that's precisely what makes this story nice.  The romance in it felt very natural to me.

    Less natural was the comedy. Now don't get me wrong. This story is funny enough to get a couple of actual laughs out of me. I almost never actually laugh out loud. It's more of a mental registry that something is, indeed, funny. My mind makes a little mental checkmark, but it doesn't usually translate into a smile or a chuckle. This story did a time or two, and for that, I applaud it.

    However, that didn't stop it from feeling like it was clubbing me on the head with the premise from time to time. There is a certain repetition that is going on in the story for comedic effect, but there is a fine line between 'still funny' and 'getting old.' Toward the middle of the story, I was starting to get pretty tired of the schtick, but the great thing is that the story also mostly does away with it at that point, too.  Not quite quickly enough for me, but I'm prickly and easily irritated, so for most readers, it will probably be right in the sweet spot.

    One thing that I really liked here is that this is a comedy with romantic elements, and that really lets the romance at the end have greater impact. It sets up the conclusion well, then delivers because you're ready for that change of pace. I think the instinct on it was good.

    Occasionally, the narrative voicing falls off track, but it's a rare problem.  Once or twice, HBAO has Rainbow think things that are humorous, but not really something that Rainbow would think. Then he kind of has Rainbow point that out to herself, but that's a false joke in my book. You can't have someone think about how they'd never actually think like that. But like I said, it's a nit-pick, not a recurrent thing.

    I was left wondering why it was divided up into two chapters. I didn't see the need to break up the flow.

    In the end, I found myself really enjoying this one. It's not perfect, but who knows more about Not Perfect fics than me? Eh? Eh?!

    No one, that's who.

    But the comedy hit its marks quite a bit of the time, and the romance was heartwarming. That seems like a win in my book.

    So BABSCon...

    I know it's kind of a ways off, but I was curious to know who among you are planning to go to BABSCon. I'm not very confident about the fanfic side of things this year, so I figure if we want to represent, we will probably need to get on top of things.

    Are any of you planning on trying to host a panel of some sort? Do people want to meet up in a hotel room like we did last year? Should we get a group together and go get some food? Should we stage a coup and storm the main stage, taking the Goldies for ourselves?

    It's kind of a strange thing, these cons.  Everyone is always waiting for everyone else to get on top of things. I figured I'd try and get the ball rolling. We have a lot of creative, interesting people with informed opinions. It'd be a shame if we couldn't get some great panels out of all that experience.

    Do You Like Melodic EDM?

    Well, if you do, why not check out statoose's bandcamp page, and see if his new track is up your alley. At a single dollar, that's quite affordable for three tracks totaling over eighteen minutes.

    For those of you who don't know him, statoose is a great guy who's helped me with quite a few of my stories. He's particularly good at picking out sentences that don't work well within the context of the paragraph that contain them, and he's helped me shine up many a lackluster phrasing. There's not much I can usually do but say thanks, but this is my chance! My opportunity to make a small dent in the imbalance of our karmic scales.

    However, I wouldn't do it if I didn't also like the end product. Melodic trance/Uplifting Progressive House isn't my usual EDM choice, but this is well done, in my opinion. I could certainly mix this into a set for my more melodic friends, and I'm sure they'd love it.

    So if it's your bag, swing on over and give it a listen. Free streaming, so what do you have to lose?

When Pinkie Pie ignores Zecora's warnings about the proper preparation of chuckleberries, she ends up locked in a battle with Sugarcube Corner's kitchen.  Not just IN the kitchen.  WITH the kitchen.  Only Pinkie could be in a situation this ridiculous.

Pinkie Pie would be easy.

This is your singing telegram

You're invited to the bedroom

Because you're such a hunk!  :pinkiehappy:

#6 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Double space your paragraphs please, if it's not too much to ask. Helps for easier reading and it's proper formatting.

#7 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1689940  Well, it's no big deal to me, but I don't have any books with double spaced paragraphs.  However, if anyone else reading this would prefer it, just let me know and I'll go in there and do it.  I'm good with it whichever way people would like to read it.

#8 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1689940

Proper formatting is either indenting or double-spaced paragraphs, just so you know. He's right, books aren't double spaced, but they're indented, like this story.

#9 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Awesome story! You got Pinkie perfectly. Amazing job, yet again.

#10 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1690004  Hi, Bookplayer!  I'm glad you like it.  Thanks for your opinions early on.  :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

That was.... different. I enjoyed it though, great job!

#12 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1690072  Thank you very much!  My goal was to make it as much like an old Donald Duck cartoon as possible.  I wanted to make Pinkie the butt of the joke, rather than the initiator of the joke for once.

#13 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1689998

Yeah, but books are awfully confusing to read. You have to keep your focus, following the lines and if you miss one, you'll be thrown off track and won't know what is going on.

Furthermore, the only reason books aren't doubled spaced is because they have a limited amount of space. On the internet, you have an unlimited amount of space to write. It is fairly standard to use double spacing on writing sites, it just makes for easier reading.

Love it!!! :pinkiecrazy: :pinkiegasp: :pinkiehappy: :heart: :pinkiehappy: :pinkiegasp: :pinkiecrazy:

It turned out bad and I just don't whyyyyy!

Hilarious!! :pinkiehappy:

#17 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Now,you see...this is the sort of story that should be getting attention!

#18 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Couldn't they just use Spike's firebreath to cook the pie?

#20 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1690273  Aw, thanks!  My stories being something like what you would see from the actual producers is my main goal and great praise!  It's nice to hear that you liked it!  :twilightsmile:

>>1690581  I'm glad you liked it!  It's always a little bit nerve-wracking to write this stuff and wonder if other people are going to think it's funny.  :yay:

#23 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1690620   Wow, thanks!  I put a lot of work into it, so I'm glad people are liking it!

#24 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1690696  Spike's breath is good for charring, but pies need to be cooked slowly.  Unless Spike wanted to be patient and blow a really soft flame evenly around the pie for about an hour, it would probably be a mess.  Not like it wasn't already a mess, but...:twilightblush:

And yes, I know he's cooked with it before in the show.  Sometimes you just have to pick your reality.  Either that, or go insane that Twilight never uses her magic when they need it.

This is unquestionably one of the best fics i've read in ages. This was absolutely spot on in every respect. From pinkie fighting the pie to twilight getting mixed up it felt just perfect.

#29 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1691230  Thank you so much for your time and appreciation!  I work hard on these things, so it's really rewarding when people enjoy them!  I've submitted A Door Jam to EQD, so once I find out if that makes it, I'm going to submit this one.  Hopefully I've weeded out the grammar errors  :twilightoops:

Excellently written. Thumbs up and a favorite for you.

You write for Pinkie very well. :twilightsmile:

#34 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1691422  Thanks so much!  Staying true to characters is one of my main focuses.  They are so well written on the show that it makes it fun to write in their voices.  :pinkiehappy:

I absolutely love one shots like these. If hasbro studios did shorts, i could easily see this being something they would make. :twilightsmile:

#36 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1692250  Man, that would be so awesome!  :rainbowkiss:   Like those shorts on the dvds of the Pixar films!  I would love that!

Thanks for reading this!

#37 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

I am only a quarter of the way through this story and I am already loving this!

Unfortunatly the fact that I should be sleeping as my brain is apperantly deprived the side story my head cooked up is a little... odd, well its always odd but more so then usual.

Brain spin off theater presents! .... heck if I know what to call this,

  Pinkie couldn't wait for Twilight to come around to take a look at the possessed furniture so she put it in a burlap bag and dragged it with her to the library only stopping a moment to hold her tummy as it gurgled having been made anxious to finish and savor the pie she was trying to make.

  Finely having found Twilight in the "tree-brary's" kitchen she spoke up.

  "Hey Twilight! I was trying this new recipie this morning when something odd happened.", She said.

"Every thing was going find until I had this odd stool," briefly holding her belly, "I was going just take a sample but I didn't want to break it so I brought the whole thing over in a baggie, can you take a look at if for me?"

With this the pink mare plopped the bag she was carrying onto Twilight's kitchen table....

EDIT: Oh I know what to call it now, how about, "lost in translation"?

EDITx2:  :yay: That was a terrific story!  Though I still wonder how it tasted, also wonder if the berries could be used to make helpful furniture? Will Pinkie wash her apron or simply train it?

Just don't toss the left over berries down the food disposal whatever you do....

#38 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Oh jeez that was amazing. You write Pinkie better than anyone else I've read. At least, in a long time. This was spectacular and entertaining through and through.

#39 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

Oh, that PInkie Pie! Such a riot. Perhaps friends make haunted kitchens more funny, but she makes any darn thing she's remotely involved in funnier. Slapstick cartoon physics abound, and even some of her subtle wordplay was amusing.

#40 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

I will never look at pie the same way ever again :raritycry:

#41 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1691018 Well, apparently other people do—it's in the featured box. :rainbowkiss: Congrats!

#42 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

The concept and synopsis alone deserves a like. Will be reading this later. Good day.:pinkiecrazy:

>>1691322

I wish there was an option to Like comments here.

#43 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1692416  Well, the chuckleberry effect is to make things humorously annoying, but perhaps Zecora or Twilight could figure out a way to make them helpful instead, but then again, where is the humor in that?

I'm glad you liked it!

#44 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1692605  Thank you so much for the awesome compliments!  I try and really get into the character's heads while I'm writing, so it's cool that other people feel they are true to the show.

#45 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1693264  I'm glad that someone liked the word play.  My favorite line from this is where Pinkie says "You'd think that she thinks that I think food just appears."  For some reason I just love that.

#46 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1693457  Just don't use any strange, magical berries and you should be okay.  When a rhyming zebra warns you, listen.

#47 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1693625  I was shocked to see it up there!  A pleasant surprise.

#48 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1694050  Well, hopefully you'll enjoy the story, but I did want that synopsis to just outline the ridiculousness of the story.  That's really all you need to know.  I was thinking of just putting "This is the story where Pinkie fights a kitchen" and leaving it at that.  :rainbowlaugh:

#49 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1694279

Hah! That would leave A LOT to the imagination, considering that it's Pinkie. I'm writing a fic myself (SPONSOR**:pinkiecrazy:) where I had a really hard time getting Miss Pie portrayed correctly. I know it's no easy task. But looking at the attention this story is getting, I'm thinking you did it pretty well :pinkiehappy: too bad I got exams and a fic to write myself, so I have to try and keep myself from reading non-study material. :pinkiesad2:

#50 · 103w, 2d ago · · ·

"over" for "oven" snuck through a couple times.  Other than that, very good!
