    Dancer Update

    You probably saw my last post, but I've been working overtime on the Dancer ever since. Expect my final(?) hurrah very soon.

    That's All, Folks!

    I've "quit" this site I think three times now—that wasn't any good. Oh well. Stuff happens.

    As you're well aware, I've been inactive for some time. I still pop into skype chats, make the occasional blog post, etc etc. I'm not going to make this dramatic or anything, but I think this is the true end for my time here on fimfic. Not 100% quitting cold turkey like I claimed before, but a realistic closing statement that you likely won't see many, if any, more updates from me in the foreseeable future, if ever. Writing is still a passion of mine, but while the site isn't terrible, it just lost it's luster on me for good. I'm sort of in a similar boat to RainbowBob, except replace his serious gripes with his own life and the site to me being a busy university student that has a million things going on.

    Perhaps I'll update the occasional thing when I'm up late at night with nothing to do, but really, this is my closing statement. I had a blast, and I know I've said that three times now, but this time it truly is the end. Dead serious. Thanks for everything, guys.

    I really do care about you guys. Thanks for making my time here great, and don't hesitate to message me on skype or steam if you wish. Besides all of my followers and everyone I've met (don't get teary now, I'll still be here from time to time as I said before, just in a limited quantity), there are a lot of people that have become very good friends of mine, and I'd like to thank you all as a big group rather than as individuals. You're all great people, and I'm sure I won't stop talking to you anytime soon.

    So that's it. My coda. You know what that word does to me, though? Coda? It makes me feel like shit. Most of my stories received lukewarm responses in terms of viewership, but the one story that has considerable progress into it and is the true story that I'm the most proud of is The Dancer. Coda was supposed to be the final chapter, but this absence is going to make that possibility a lot less likely. There have been a lot of people dedicated to that story, and I know you're really anxious to see the end just as much as I want to finish it.

    Ah, fuck it. Guess I can offer one last hurrah with the final chapters of The Dancer. If I do finish it, watch out for my next blog, which would likely be my last blog I'll write here.

    Of course, this could be my last one. Hopefully it isn't, but eh.

    Cheers.

Twilight has been living in a fantasy world; one with Discord in stone, one where everything appears to be peaceful. But fantasies can't last forever, and Twilight has to get accustomed to the new, twisted reality—even if it doesn't seem so real.

But there's no time to adapt when the clock is ticking. And when time runs out, everything that was real will never come back.

Oooh, new yip story?

I had an idea for a story like this once, and I bet there are other people with ideas like these as well. You managed to pull it off well and I hope for an update soon!

I haven't finished reading it, but you keep using a ' instead of a " around quotes.

>>2080427 Yes, that's the "single quotation" style that some authors use. Some notable examples of its use include J.R.R. Tolkien, Aldous Huxley and many others.

Plus I just really like the look of single quotation marks

Your wording is a bit awkward in places, but I like where the story is going. I'm currently writing a similar story (with Chrysalis instead of Discord), so I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who enjoys exploring this kind of "what if".

Ah, now here is a Discord I want to kill...

*sharpens his Vorpal Sword*  He'd better hope he loses... I've never failed to execute the ones who won.

The narration is pretty straigthforward along with the dialogue, making me at least read faster and concentrate less on the plot. This is a feature shared by quite many new writers (me included), though. Foreshadowing, even in short stories, offers a handy tool for author to build up tension for the critical parts and make some twists and turns to the plot.

All and all I liked it, the main idea offering some intriguing options and possibilities for later chapters and even though I myself fancy more fics that try not to be like an authentic episode from the series itself, I get that it is a good way of building a fanfic. And this is a solid example of one - a good fanfic.  

In terms of percentages, (ex:10%) how close is the next chapter to this fanfic to being completed?

>>2132087 I've been busy with other real life things, so it's about 10% completed. I'm free for some time, though, so don't be surprised if it comes soon. I'm on an irregular schedule.

Are you planning on continuing this story any time soon?

>>3710134 I continuously have the need and then the lack of need to revilatize this by writing more and fixing up what's there. This will continue at some point, and I have resolutions for the new year to write more--expect more soon or months from now, all by lady chance's hand.

I'm other words, it will continue. At what point? I don't know.

>>3713439 Then why does it say cancelled?

>>4083910 I should change that. I am on an extended hiatus from that account, but I'm just checking in—I originally thought I was quitting the site, so I marked it cancelled. Thanks for noticing that so I can correct it.
