    November blues, and the 991 reasons not to have them

    I'm alive, and I'm relatively hale and hearty. I've also been incredibly busy... writing the last chapter(s) of out and about.

    Imagine my surprise when, as I finished up chapter 10, I found fimfic of the opinion that it was over 12k words long. Imagine my surprise, also, when I discovered that I'm nearly at a kilopone of followers? I'm humbled and honoured, and wondering if a) I'll actually hit or even break 1000, and whether I'll manage to get there before or after I post the cleaned up final chapters.

    All I've got left is the epilogue. It's so close I can taste it. And after that, I'm going to be writing the final chapters of king of diamonds. At 50k words until it's finished, though, that one's going to be taking a while.

    It's been a weird year for me, over all. Just about a year and a month ago, I was let go from my old work. It still stings that I gave 13 years of my life to a company I respected, only to be buttfucked by a bunch of indians in a false-flag operation seemingly designed to fire as many people as possible, as quickly and as cheaply as possible.

    I'm most of my way towards my new occupation - maybe, at least - so I do have a destination in mind... I'm just not sure if I want to get there or not.

    Thanks for sticking with me, I know this is taking longer than you might expect or hope, but I am getting there.

    Also, if anybody wants to help edit the last three chapters of out and about, send me a pm, I'll give you the link.

    Middy out.

    that third thing: c25k

    Told you I was scatterbrained... I finally remembered what that third thing was that I've been doing. It's called 'c25k'.

    C25K stands for 'couch to 5k', as in 'couch potato to 5 kilometer runner'. It's supposed to lead you from being a fat slob sitting in front of the television to be able to run for 30 minutes - or roughly five kilometers - in about nine weeks.

    I've just started week 3, but I've been doing this for about five weeks... blame school holidays ending, trips to Estonia and some really shitty weather for making me repeat (not abandon or postpone) weeks 1 and 2. I have to say though, I think it works. It's scary when you start a new week, and the first attempt at each new week is always worse than the one before it... but I'm doing okay. I'm running the distance.

    If you've ever wanted to get into shape, but just don't know how, then this is the easiest, cheapest way to get into shape I've found yet: all you need is an mp3 player and a pair of sneakers. And clothes - most people look at you oddly if you're not dressed.

    Follow this link and download the podcasts, do what the nice lady says and you'll be on your way in no time.

    Oh mah gawd, it's alive! It's ALLIIVVEEE! (muahahaaa)

    Yah yah, I know: long time no see.

    Well, I thought I should kind of fix that. 'Kind of' because I'm kind of scatterbrained at the moment, don't really have the time to dedicate to a proper entry and a third reason which totally helps explain things. I have been busy in life. The good sort of busy, I guess, which leads to not much writing but doesn't lead to horrible depression and ennui. I've not really had much time to interact here, so... I'm alive. And writing - slowly.

    When it comes out, out and about chapter 10 will be the last. I hope it's as awesome as it is in my head...

    And when it comes out, king of diamonds chapter 28 won't be the last... but it will also be awesome.

    Promises, promises, I know, but almost one thousand people can't be that wrong, can they? Yes, that's right, almost a thousand people think I'm kinda awesome! I'm shocked. I'm also hoping that it's a modicum of talent and not merely having been here forever.

    So what have I been doing when not-writing? We-eelll... I've been coding. It might be going somewhere. And once I finish (actually, once it's 'good enough') then I might use what I've learned on something else. Something writing-y related.

    Stay tuned.

    So, what've you all been up to?

These are the voyages of the... wait, wrong cue card... Ahem. Yes. These are a collection of silly, off-the-hoof stories written whilst bored as a kind of self-hazing experiment gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Some are short, real short, and only one is of any substantial length, but you may enjoy them.

I think they're now complete, until we get new victims... er, pre-readers, who wish to join in.

Brilliant.

I don't have enough hooves to facehoof hard enough for this lol. Hope to see more from you soon Midnight :twilightsmile:

What.

:facehoof: So silly...:rainbowlaugh:

This is pretty funny, gotta say.  :pinkiehappy:

BAHAHAHA!!! This is awesome and priceless, and I hope all jobs are this good :rainbowlaugh:

The whole "Sethisto-Box" thing makes me wonder, why hasn't there been a Hellriser crossover? Know what? Fuck it, when I'm done with the DMC crossover I'm going to write it. Sethisto is Pinhead. Phoe I guess could be one of the Wire Sisters, Cereal is The Torso, you can be, I dunno CD? Or Butterball lulz and because I'm awesome I'll be Chatter Beast...I'm getting off track here.

This story is a bit confusing for me, every line just confuses me more as I read, a little funny though

Hmm are muffins worth not setting things on fire?

These are great btw.

It's not fair, I wanna work there :twilightangry2: :raritycry: :fluttercry: :flutterrage:

>> Cloudhammer

Don't we all?

Somewhere near a water cooler...

"-And I said to him You can't possibly expect mares to do that wet-look mane! It looks too sultry and it conveys the wrong message to the foals, would you have your daughter have that wet-look? No I wouldn't think so! I blame that sock craze a few months back, I mean c'mon socks, really? Was it some kind of innuendo slash double entendre or some manure like that? You know what kind of mates wear socks? The ones in those triple horseshoe movies, yeah those movies. And I know what you might be thinking, Oh but Teal surely you don't believe all that? And you know what I'd tell you? I'd tell ya to think inside the chimny! Also look back at when the sweater thing also became popular! Sweaters stallion! Think about it! All these sheeponies (sheeple) are just so...mainstream you know? THE POWER OF ANTI-CONFORMITY COMPELS YOU! Ahaha look all I'm trying to say is...that oatmeal is a hellavu drug!"

"Bro all I asked is if you seen my sandwich."

another excellent chapter, keep em coming :twilightsmile:

*listens to Brian M vs McBunn - Automatic*

Cool-cool-cool-cool-cool :trollestia:

... yeah, that's pretty much how it is.

enough caffeine to turn a normal pony so hyper they explode into jam?!

*thinking* Pinkie Pie + The Mecanic's coffee = ∞/∞

What the fuck did I just

looks like extra security is needed to keep the Pink Menace away from this... or Rainbow, either one could rip a hole into the 5th dimension with this stuff haha

Coffemakers & Zuchinnis...cause Quils & Sofas, original. Lul

Anyways I want to be in this

There's actually a "code pink" story, but I need to talk to the author to get it approved... :pinkiehappy:

so much d'aww :rainbowlaugh:

:facehoof::facehoof:

This is why you read twice, approve once :rainbowlaugh:

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

I can't blame them though, I'd likely react the same way if I saw Pinkie charging my way too.

*facehoof* Oh Celestia, why you be such a troll?

:trollestia: problem?

NO, I DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE MOON! Although, it'd get me out of this class :rainbowlaugh:

My ass this food will go straight to my plot!

Mane its probably a good judge for Pinkie. Example: Straight? Unhappy with a Cupcakes splinter-fic.

I am somehow reminded of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night.

Oh god, this is awesome. :rainbowlaugh: I guess this is why you're sending them to the sun now?

Good catch! "Guards! Guards!" was my first discworld novel, and the very idea that something so meta, amusing, relevant and crazy could exist was a real eye-opener. I don't know if it's my absolute favourite, but it is the one I tell people to read first.

>>356750 For me it was Equal Rites. But the Guards series remains joint first with the Wizards as examples of great, comedic but still serious fiction.

I actually saw a play of Guards, Guards once. Was very good. They had a "narrator" character to deliver the footnotes or narration jokes in paused-time. She occasionally adjusted things before the time unpaused again, which was fun.

>>356765

Apparently (and I am inclined to believe it), having a dragon in a play is easier than a normal-sized monster, because you don't have to show the dragon, only what it does. Imagination does the rest.

The idea of draconic manipulations behinds the scenes also haunts Ambassador's Son.

Fillies and gentlecolts, welcome to the pinnacle of the fan fiction universe. It's all downhill from here. I've had a good run, but that's it for me; I might as well stop trying. Well played, pre-readers. Well played.

Um ill take a Decaf please

Huh?

What even just happened?

Darn you prereaders, getting onto Equestria Daily with this stuff just because you work there!:flutterrage:

Eh, I have no right to complain, since I'm one of the authors who actually has gotten stuff onto EQD.:twilightsheepish:

That office read like a description of the inside of my own mind.

I would so work there. Because then i could bring in explosives and amuse myself on my breaks by exploding bad stories. :pinkiecrazy:

so EQD uses Celectia"s Banana Cannon to send bad fanfics to the moon. but every time Celectia used that cannon to send the ponies to the moon she missed every single time. So I must ask, where are all the fanfics ending up if not on the moon?

"There was a sudden fizzle of angrily-applied winged unicorn princess power followed by the clattering cacophony of four horse-shoes, a bunch of nails and a mostly-full plastic sippy mug hitting the ground."

Oh goodness, the writing here is great. :D

I love the concept of a story about the shenanagans of the EQD staff. :D

AHAHAHAHAHAAAA!! :rainbowlaugh:

A V8-powered coffee maker... So awesome. :pinkiehappy:

This one was full of randomness and insanity and I loved it.

*Reaches end of story collection*

Awww, no more? Oh well, this kept me up late enough anyway.

Good stuff from all of y'all. :pinkiesmile:

Two words you NEVER want to hear uttered together at the EqD office:

CODE HARMONY

I laughed.

I guess this is what you guys have to deal with every day, eh? :rainbowlaugh:

Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath

There was weed involved, I just know it.

That first paragraph reminds me of something. Wait a minute.... Is the monty python reference intentional?

Regardless, one of the funniest things I've read for a while. :pinkiehappy:

“By the pricking of my hooves, something wicked this way moves...” intoned the great and powerful Sethisto in a giggling high-pitched cackle.

This is the greatest sentence ever conceived by man.
