    Keeping it Brief

    Thought I was dead? Too bad. I'm back again.

    I'm going away to Austria for two weeks. Literally leaving after I've finished this blog. I've left a story pending for approval that I hope at least one of you might like. I hate those types of blogs that only promote a story with a link, so I won't insult your intelligence and ability to navigate the website successfully when, or if, the story appears.

    As a result of my holiday, I won't be able to come online at all.  Feel free to comment and stuff, but I won't be able to read anything and respond until I'm back.

    That just about does it.

    Oh, the new story will probably be terrible, as I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things. (Nearly a year? Wow.)

    Read it anyway.

    I guess... a rant?

    I've just been thinking about stuff recently, so bear with me. Anyone feeling depressed better look away. If you're feeling marginally optimistic, carry on reading. When you read an amazing book, or any book, for that matter, do you remember the author? I mean, it's much easier to remember the book itself, or the characters therein, than the person behind it. Everyone knows the fictional character of Sherlock Holmes, but I guess a lot less people could name the creator. It's easy to say that someone like J.K. Rowling will never be forgotten because of how popular her work is nowadays, but is there an inevitable point in the future when people know Harry Potter but not his creator?

    I guess the same thing could be said for everyone and everything. That doesn't make it any less depressing; I was just making a point. A couple of times, I've been referred to as 'the guy who wrote that Smarty romance fic' or 'the guy who wrote that sad but ultimately flawed fic where everyone dies', and it's only just occurred to me that that's all I'll ever be on here. Tomorrow, I could get hit by a bus or struck by lightning, and it won't make a bit of difference. I'll just go offline forever, and those reading said Smarty fic will just wonder about when the next chapter will come out. Any person here could get hit by a bus. In fact, I'm sure someone got hit by one while I was writing this blog, and look how much of an impact that made on your life, you selfish person, you. Also, don't get hit by buses, guys. That's not cool.

    My point is, eventually, we will all be forgotten. You could say that bullshit about loved ones never forgetting about you, but they'll die eventually, too. Their loved ones will die, and the loved ones of those loved ones will die. History will never remember us, even if we go on to do great or evil deeds. Eventually, I'm sure, someone as evil as Hitler will be forgotten. I'll sure as shit be forgotten. I mean, I doubt anyone will remember this very blog in a matter of hours. It's all just a matter of time before we're all forgotten. How long depends on what you do with your life, but even then, it will inevitably be forgotten. So what's the point in everything? There is no point. Nice talking to you guys.

    Next time on reasons to commit suicide...

    No, I'm kidding. There are plenty of reasons to keep living. Do what you enjoy doing in your life, and don't give a shit when people forget about you. It's not like you'll be around when they do, so why care? It'll happen to the best and worst of us eventually, as proven by everything in history, so there's no point in thinking you'll do any better. Take that. Use that as an advantage. Some day, no one will remember the time you shat yourself at work, or the time you wrote a godawful clop fic. Even if you kill the remaining members of The Beatles, or go on a killing spree, you will be forgotten, even if it takes longer than certain people. Personally, I like that setup. It means I can focus on doing the things I love with the short time I have, rather than focus on how history will remember me. Hint: it won't. That's why I write, and why I couldn't give a damn if someone forgot me.

    I'd like to leave you with a quote:

    'I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.'

    [20/10/2013 00:00:51] Hueple Prose: I like hanging above you, and I hope I can dangle here all night long

    [20/10/2013 00:01:01] Trial S: Oh, that's a shame.

    [20/10/2013 00:01:10] Trial S: The wind has seemingly picked up.

    [20/10/2013 00:01:19] Hueple Prose: Oh, well that is unfortunate

    [20/10/2013 00:01:22] Trial S: You're swinging to and fro.

    [20/10/2013 00:02:00] Hueple Prose: Oh, I appear to be falling.

    [20/10/2013 00:02:03] Trial S: Oh.

    [20/10/2013 00:02:09] Trial S: What a frightful event.

    [20/10/2013 00:02:09] Hueple Prose: Can you help me mister Pool

    [20/10/2013 00:02:25] Trial S: Would you consider help being submerged in my depths?

    [20/10/2013 00:02:34] Trial S: Because, by that, I am helping.

    [20/10/2013 00:02:34] Hueple Prose: I thought I would float

    [20/10/2013 00:02:48] Hueple Prose: Oh no! I am drowning

    [20/10/2013 00:03:31] Hueple Prose: Thanks for the help, Mr Pool.

    [20/10/2013 00:03:43] Trial S: No problem, Conkerlord.

    [20/10/2013 00:03:58] Trial S: May my warm depths carry you softly to sleep.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:01] Hueple Prose: Conkerlord cannot hear you, for he is dead.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:10] Trial S: That is a shame.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:16] Trial S: Who speaks in his place?

    [20/10/2013 00:04:24] Hueple Prose: His attorney.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:27] Trial S: Oh.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:44] Trial S: Hello, Mr Conkerlord's Attorney.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:51] Trial S: It appears you are also a conker.

    [20/10/2013 00:04:54] Hueple Prose: Yes.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:00] Trial S: Swinging to and fro above my waters.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:11] Hueple Prose: Oh, the wind has picked up.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:14] Trial S: Oh.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:19] Trial S: What a frightful event.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:30] Trial S: No matter, you shall see Mr Conkerlord soon.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:32] Hueple Prose: Well, let me just sort through my papers while I dangle.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:39] Trial S: You have no paper.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:41] Hueple Prose: Oh no! I have no papers. Or hands.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:43] Trial S: You are a conker.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:52] Trial S: Fear not!

    [20/10/2013 00:05:55] Hueple Prose: Oh, I appear to be falling.

    [20/10/2013 00:05:56] Trial S: I shall catch you!

    [20/10/2013 00:06:05] Trial S: And proceed to help.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:16] Trial S: See? You can see Mr Conkerlord.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:24] Hueple Prose: Ohai Mr Conkerlord.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:29] Trial S: He appears to be sleeping.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:37] Trial S: Rather unfortunate.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:40] Hueple Prose: I am rather sleepy too.

    [20/10/2013 00:06:47] Hueple Prose: Now that you mention it.

    [20/10/2013 00:07:09] Trial S: Then I shall tuck you to bed with my pleasant mixture of hydrogen and oxygen particles.

    [20/10/2013 00:07:18] Hueple Prose: Oh, how delightf-

    [20/10/2013 00:07:36] Trial S: It appears I am alone.

    [20/10/2013 00:07:40] Trial S: Oh, woe is me.

    [20/10/2013 00:07:41] Hueple Prose: Conkerlord's Attorney appears to be dead.

    [20/10/2013 00:08:01] Trial S: Is this Conkerlord's Attorney's Attorney?

    [20/10/2013 00:08:05] Hueple Prose: No.

    [20/10/2013 00:08:09] Hueple Prose: I am a leaf.

    [20/10/2013 00:08:13] Trial S: His faithful ally?

It's been eighty-nine days since the Day of Darkness, and Twilight Sparkle is still on her own. Eighty-nine days since she talked to anyone other than herself. Regardless of how lonely she feels, she prefers the company of herself to the vicious "lurkers", as she calls them, roaming around outside of her library. Whatever friendly, loving creatures they were before the Day of Darkness, something changed them. Something created these insane creatures, and nothing, not even Twilight, can stop them. All Twilight can do is live — live to fight another day.

So, this is the lone survivor of my procrastination. All my other stories trailed off somewhere, but this one held firm. Hope you like it, but I better shut up, now. Dash is judging my typing, and she follows my mouse where ever it goes. Get out while you still can.

#2 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

dash is doing the same to me :fluttercry: please don't hurt meeee!

:rainbowdetermined2:

DAMN YOU! I have stories I have to work on, and 11 chapter updates in my fav list, and you have to post something that just looks SOO FREAKIN INTERESTING, that I have to read it...

You are EVIL! EVIL I tell ye LMAO!!!!!

It DOES look good though. Maybe someone will do a reading of this one.

#4 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

This... this looks kind of interesting. I'm gonna track it!

#5 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Oh, I like this.

#6 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1860020   This defiantly has something to do with I AM LEGEND.

#7 · 95w, 1d ago · 2 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1862844 Then it all went according to plan... :pinkiecrazy:

>>1862999 Nope. :pinkiesmile: Nothing at all.

One of the best films evaar.

#8 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

#10 · 95w, 1d ago · 1 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1863175 No, not really. The only similarity is the concept.

#11 · 95w, 1d ago · 1 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1863413   Ah, carry on then.

#12 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

I'm usually content with waiting for updates, but... damn that was a cliffhanger and I want more... oh well

I'm going to guess that, if Twilight's theory is correct, the non-lurker is Dashie who happened to be napping at the time of the incident. But, because she was outside, she was still physically altered with certain instincts attached (thus why it took a little while to speak up) so Twilight will be able to research a cure using 'Dashie' as a test subject, with some drama happening with 'Dash' loosing control of course. (even if not Dash I'm sticking with that theory until proven wrong.) So... how far off am I?

#13 · 95w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1863920 As much as I'd like it be Dashie, with her being my favourite pony and all, she'll only get a small mention later. The non-lurker will be revealed later. :scootangel:

With your second part, that was going to be the original plot, so you're not far off from there! Don't worry about the cliffhanger, I'm working on the second chaper as we speak.

#14 · 94w, 6d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

CLIFFHANGER FFFFFUUUUUUU-:yay:

Ahem... Yes we'll I do like we're this is heading and it seems it will be a promising tale so yay

More...

I NEED MORE!

So AWESOME!:rainbowkiss:

#18 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Aww, man. This isn't going to turn into another TwiDash story is it? :raritydespair:

#19 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1938050 Nope. :twilightsmile: What gives you that impression?

#20 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Twilight looked down at the lurker in shock, her mouth wide open. No longer struggling, it began to transform into different colours, mirroring the palette of a rainbow.

Either you're talking about Rainbow Dash or a grown up Princess Skyla. I guessed the former.

Lately TwiDash has become the new big trend everyone's writing to try and get in the feature box. Though seeing as how you're writing Horror—and very good horror, I might add—I guess it's safe to assume that you aren't trying to cash in on the fleeting popularity of current trends.

#21 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Very 'I Am Legend' feel to this, which I'd guess is what you're going for. But I'm also guessing you've got some twistiness of your own coming. I'm comparing to Matheson's book, btw, not that thing of a movie (I'd love to see one lurker just standing outside saying "Twilight!" over and over :P)

But yeah, I love this story, I like your style about it; really looking forward to the next part!

#22 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

This is I am legand meets mlp meets something new. This is awsome. can't wait for the next chapter.

#23 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

This.

THIS.

THIS, is interesting. An incredibly well-crafted first chapter. I can't wait to see you greater define this hellish, pitch-black world... and, y'know, the cliffhanger is edging me. :P I must know who that is.

#24 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

This is... most excellent!

#25 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Oh, and if you didn't know, your story is featured on Equestria Daily!

#31 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Similar to the 1964 Science fiction horror move "The last man on Earth", which is more faithful to Richard Matheson's novel "I am Legend" then either "The Omega Man" or the more recent namesake "I am Legend".

#32 · 93w, 1d ago · 2 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

I love this, I'm gonna take two guesses here:

1. Twilight's new friend is a changeling

2. This was at least partially inspired by Alan Wake

Do I get anything now?  :pinkiehappy:

#33 · 93w, 1d ago · 1 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Thankyou Equestria Daily without you I wouldn't have found this amasing story

#34 · 93w, 1d ago · 2 · · Same Old, Same Old ·

This looks a lot like the don't go outside series at first glance.

#35 · 93w, 23h ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

Interesting. Reminds me of the book "I Am Legend." You've peaked my interest.

#36 · 93w, 22h ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1938907 Ah, I see. Well, nope, in short. Can't Won't reveal any further details than that. Next chapter coming soon, though. :twilightsheepish:


#37 · 93w, 22h ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1939498 Thank you! Yep, I Am Legend was a great inspiration for this, both the book and the film. Second chapter is in the works!

#38 · 93w, 22h ago · · · Same Old, Same Old ·

>>1939519 Well, it's inspired by a lot of things, really. Interesting to see that most, if not all, people caught on with I Am Legend, but I also used: Metro 2033 for the generally dark atmosphere and The Walking Dead for the emotions that came about after catastrophes. All these and more for my inspiration. :twilightsmile:

"My name is Twilight Sparkle. I am a survivor living in Ponyville. If there's anyone on this frequency: please! Respond. You are not alone."

Mmmm, a fic that might just be a parody of I Am Legend? Must read!

>>1942734 Parody? Parody!? I would never mock such a film... Besides, the whole setup would be ever so slightly different if it was.

I mean, perhaps I'll do some references later on. :trixieshiftleft:

Wow, great fic idea and greatly performed fic.

It seems indeed like Twilight is telling us the story of this fic, heh, I mean, all caclulations and explanations.

Well done.

And interesting storyline, I wonder where you will take it, all the possibilities, heh. This was a great 'introduction', and I'll be following the continuation of this fic to see which way you decide to continue it :twilightsmile:

Liked, faved, and watching you, as I recall I've enjoyed some of your earlier fic(s) too, I'll check that out ^^

Thanks for writing this and putting it up for everyone to enjoy! :)

>>1944742 No, thank you for reading! :twilightsmile: Seriously, it makes my day reading these sorts of comments. I mean, it's already fun enough to write, but it's so rewarding to actually read that someone likes it. The next chapter is in the works, and it'll likely be submitted in the next couple of days.

>>1946079 You should read I Am Legend instead, it's way better than the movie (especially the end).
