Being transported to the magical land of Equestria is every Brony's dream, including mine. At least it would be under better circumstances. After a car crash I wake up, broken bones and all, as a species native to Equestria in Equestria. A dream-come-true, right? Maybe if I was a pony or gryphon. Hell, a human would be better than a draconequus. This might turn out to be a living nightmare if don't play my cards right.

Wow. The first thing I want to say that I'm sorry for a whole year of absence. I've been really busy with things on my end from suddenly working at a zoo, to going to Tampa for a while, to dealing with relationship problems, and issues with school. The zoo thing came to an end and I came home from Tampa just fine but... it turns out that sometimes your significant other is not the person you thought they were. They can, in fact, be a lead weight without you realizing it until you move them into your home and they make your life a stressful nightmare until they leave. I guess I'm more happy going solo dolo anyway, haha~
The relationship business was the main reason it took so long for me to return to the story. It took up most of my time and then I basically had to mentally recover. Since I'm writing again I guess this means that I've recovered then, huh?
So yeah, outside of having to work my butt off in school I should still be able to find time to work on this so I'll try to have a tentative release schedule up at some point or at least let you guys know that I *am* actually writing. As I also said in the author's notes of the latest update I have somebody editing my chapters. I kind of want to re-work a lot of this story, too, but I don't want to post any more chapters until I've ironed all of the kinks out. So while he's editing I'll be changing around some bits and pieces of the old chapters. The premise won't change but it also won't sound like a middle-school girl who's had too many packets of Fun Dip wrote them (Do they sound like that to you, because they do to me. There is literally no reason a college-aged adult should sound like that. Bless you all for sticking with this story).
Looking back at my old writings is, honestly, extremely painful. Hell, I looked at what I just wrote and that's pretty painful, too. I've mentioned before that I'm a scientist, dammit, not a writer! But I do promise the chapters will be easier to read at some point in the near future.
That's all I have to say for now.
Thanks for being here for me even when I wasn't really here for you guys~ I love you all!

Wow, I just logged on for the first time in... a while, I guess. I didn't realize how long it'd really been.
First off, I want to say I'm sorry for disappearing and not saying anything. I know I should have let you guys know after I realized I was going to be away for so long and even more so when I put the stories on hiatus. Second, I want to thank whoever's reading this for staying with me! :D
Here's the story... After I got back from my little trip over winter break the new semester started, as it does every year. Only this time the classes were a bit more difficult than I was expecting. I wound up having to redirect my focus to studying and when I wasn't doing that I was too burned out to even think about writing. More recently I've been working on getting a summer internship. I have an interview for one in a few weeks so that's good. Speaking of summer, I have no clue what my schedule will look like until after if/when I get the internship on top of my summer classes. Since I'm only taking one class (with a lab) though, I'll DEFINITELY be writing over the summer. How much I be writing? I, once again, have no clue. On top of a possible internship (a normal job if I don't get it) and my summer class/lab, my boyfriend's trying to move down here with me. It shouldn't take up TOO much of my time, but it will require a lot of attention.
So yeah, that's the long and short of me being busy: school.
I have finals in about 2 weeks which are right on the heels of about 5 exams (because one professor thought it would be wise to split one exam and have a schedule that looks like "EXAMDAY break EXAMDAY break FINAL" during finals week). So I'll be studying for those and waiting to hear back on my internship until summertime.
By the way, my internship'll be at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. If you're in the area you should definitely go there; it's pretty sweet.

By which I mean I live in Florida and it's going to be cold tonight so they cancelled classes for Tuesday and Wednesday. It was so weird; We were halfway through classes today and then, basically, every school in North Florida closed for the next two days, including labs for the rest of today. I'm not going to complain that I didn't have an Organic Chem lab until 9pm tonight. In fact, I find it fucking hilarious! I've gone to school up north in a literal blizzard but holy fuck a snowflake might fall tonight!
So yeah, Florida is closed for the next few days so I'm going to be studying for my tests and practicing hikikomori. People down here aren't used to driving in icy conditions so since I don't particularly want to get into another accident any time soon I'm not leaving my house for any reason.
Now, why should this interest you? Well sit your bony ass down and just let me tell you why! I've been home for 4 hours and I'm already bored as dicks! So rather than study or do homework right now I'm marathoning Gravity Falls and, drumroll please, WRITING THE NEXT CHAPTER TO ERIS'S FUROR!
Check back around tomorrow for a shiny new chapter of your favorite story, folks~

Hello hello people!
'Tis I! The tired and choleric author, Furr-e!
So yes, school is back in full-swing, so I hope all of you who are in class are doing well and having good times and those with jobs are doing just the same. This is my second year at university and I have to say it's been going very well!
"If it's going so well, why haven't you written in a long while, then?" you might be asking. Well the answer is quite simple: While school may be going swimmingly for me, my home-life is less-than-peaceful, to put it nicely. If I were to put it not-so-nicely, I would say "I'm about 5 seconds away from punting an 11y/o out of my hurricane-grade windows and then running her over repeatedly with my car".
What happened was I was having a grand old summer with my friends returned home for a few months down in Tampa at MetroCon. Just after I returned home, my boyfriend was supposed to fly in and stay with us for about a week. It would be a hectic and exhausting few weeks but that's fine. But our family friends (a family of 3, mom, dad, and 11y/o troll) were recently displaced so they came to live with us while I was away at Metro. Suffice to say my life went from tollerably busy to down-right stressful.
This child is not a mere 11y/o, she is the devilspawn. I honestly do not want to go home because of this child. She pulls some kind of childish bullshit every day and every day I come home to "the troll did this insanity today blah blah blah." and if she doesn't do it while I'm away, it happens when I'm there. I honestly detest this creature. I'm not comfortable in my own home so I dick around after school to the point of exhaustion and I walk in the door late and promptly pass out, wake up a few hours later, go to school, and the cycle repeats.
Since writing is not my stress-outlet, as drinking tea and listening to podcasts is, I haven't been writing. So that's my excuse for the lack of a new chapter with Eris's Furor the past few months. I hope you'll all forgive me, as after I finish homework today, I"m going to try my darndest to finish up the next chapter!
As we speak, i'm in Books a Million freezing my booty off in a tank and shorts with some tea to get stuff done!
So until we meet again over my writings, enjoy your hopefully stress-free time while my stomach churns with it
