    On the Bridges I've Burned

    So I'm back. You may have noticed that the last blog post I put up before BABSCon was back in October of 2012. I kind of fell out of the fandom around then, especially after Unicon the February after that. I never really stopped liking MLP and kept up with episodes and some other things, but I stopped keeping up with fanfic and resigned from EqD.

    BABSCon kind of invigorated me. There were a couple of panels and a few super awesome fic authors (including the best party of the con, which mostly consisted of a bunch of authors discussing ponyfic) that made me really want to get back into the game as far as fic writing goes. I just posted a short one shot, On the Care and Construction of Bridges, and I'm going to try to make a habit of the whole writing and posting thing. Please don't be surprised if this fic isn't great; I'm super rusty and I didn't get an editor or anything.

    Bridges started out as a very different fic. The seed of an idea for it started just after BABSCon, when I got a line from a song stuck in my head and it turned into the title "Let's not Fall in Love". Originally, the fic was going to focus much more closely on the lack of relationship between Applejack and Rarity, their trepidation over ruining the friendship they already had, and the power Rarity had over Applejack due how much more powerful Applejack's feelings were than Rarity's. It was going to explore how scary love can be, and how much power it can give others over you, and how scary it can be to have power over someone you really do care about. I've been on both sides of that sort of imbalance, and it always ends up painful. In the end, they were going to decide not to try a relationship.

    This was something rather personal to me, because I had a relationship of my own in mind as a model for the relationship between Applejack and Rarity.

    By the time the fic became Bridges, I'd changed the focus. The decision not to pursue love was already made, and I explored whether it was a good decision. I hope it doesn't seem like I came to any conclusion on that point, because I honestly don't know if Applejack's decision is right. I certainly don't know whether Rarity's decision is right, because I am not Rarity. I am more like Pinkie Pie. When I was in a similar situation, I chose the other path, because the power I had did not make me cautious, and I rushed into something that maybe I shouldn't have. Both good things and bad things came of that. I am not sure which there is more of.

    I am very good at burning bridges. When a romantic relationship ends, I tend to cut off contact. Usually it's not a deliberate thing, I just never contact them. And they never contact me. And it makes things a bit less awkward, I suppose. I do similar things with old friends, and to be honest, I do similar things with some new friends too. I find it very easy to make new friends, so I don't put any effort into keeping the ones I have. When something ends a friendship, I let it stay ended. I guess this fic ended up being more about that than about relationships. I am very good at burning bridges, but bridges can be rebuilt. The Care and Construction of Bridges is about Rainbow Dash learning that lesson. Maybe I should follow her lead.

    Maybe.

    Also I'm half asleep typing this out so I hope it's halfway coherent.

    Getting Back Into The Game

    So Babscon was awesome, though I managed to catch some sort of plague (or at least flu) that I'm just now recovering from. I managed to attend a couple of the fanfiction panels and an awesome fic author party. I feel like I've rekindled my passion for fanfic, and I've been spending some of the lucid time I've had while sick catching up on RCL features I hadn't read. After that, I might get around to reading all those fics I haven't read from authors I really love (Like Blueshift and CiG).

    In the medium term, I think I'll get back into writing. Let's hope I haven't gotten too rusty, right?

    The plan for the long term remains, as always, world domination.

    Music Inspired by Tired

    An individual named Pi was apparently impressed enough by Tired that they created a short piano peice after reading it.


    I appreciate everyone who reads and especially those who leave comments (thank you all, by the way, for those), but this is the first time (to my knowledge) that my fanfic has inspired this particular form of creativity, so I figured I'd give Pi a shout out on it and share it with all of you.

    Everfree Northwest

    I hope I'm not the only one that can barely remember the start of a convention by the time it's over. Conventions for me are just so dense with activities and socialization and alcohol (Though less at this con than at anime cons I've been to). So yes, I'm currently exhausted from attending Everfree Nortwest.

    I shared my room with the ever-awesome CupcakesNom, Bronycon staffer and founder of the Humble Brony Bundle, and a guy named Xiago who I hadn't ever interacted with but seems nice enough. It also turned into a minor hub of people because of its size. I managed to contain my squeals when John Joseco got his hands on the coloring book I'd picked up at Target and used eight colors of crayons to make a madly impressive recolor. I played Munchkin and Words Against Humanity with a few of the other EqD prereaders and drank homebrewed mead.

    As for the con itself, it was rather awesome. There were a few headaches (as is expected from any first year con), but everything came together nicely despite the challenges of a split venue. I've been assured that Ponystock was awesome, though I'm not big into the music side of the fandom so I didn't spend much time there. I attended one of the writing panels and found it interesting. I should have gone to more, but I was too distracted wondering how many of the people in the room had written stories I'd rejected from EqD. There was a ton of other stuff to do, so I was far from bored. I was fortunate enough (and shelled out enough money for a sponsor's badge, so I had the opportunity) to be in the front row of the Mane Six Minus Two (Plus Two) panel, and that was beyond awesome. The VAs are hilarious. The Equestria Daily panel was fun, and I found it amusing that the blogponies brought cookies for everyone... but only bought fifty cookies. They were gone quite quickly. I got some buttons from the dealers' hall, including an awesome Pinkie Pie one that I managed to get signed by her VA.

    On Sunday, Couch convinced a few of the prereaders and Sethisto to skip out on the con to go to a water park. That was fun, but the weather could have been better.

    Overall, an awesome experience. I'm looking forward to more MLP conventions. Hopefully we get more on the west coast soon enough!

Twilight's curiosity pushes her to go where no bookworm has gone before: on dates. Dates with lots of unfamiliar (and not so unfamiliar) mares. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

A parody of dating websites in general, named after eHarmony.

:raritydespair: :rainbowlaugh:

Poor Twilight. WHY THOUGH WHY MUST YOU END IT RIGHT THEEERRREEE.

Hurry before I go crazy with wonder :pinkiecrazy:

:rainbowlaugh:

Enjoyed it so far. Looking forward to more... I sense a trainwreck of a first date coming... Poor Twi!

I like this Rarity. :raritywink:

:twilightsheepish:

Best Rarity portrayal I have read yet.

Very nice portrayal of both Twilight and Rarity :twilightsmile:

I'm looking foreward to finding out how her date goes

Ebon Mane, I love you. :heart:

Oh teh lolz. Great story man, keep up the great work.

:rainbowlaugh: that was great!!! Loving it so far keep up the good work :twilightsmile:

:twilightangry2: poor Twilight , find her twin and fights her :trollestia:

I lolled. So badly. I really should of saw that twist coming.

Guys, they didn't fight. Twilight and Dazzle just are into BDSM. Very kinky.

This story is hilarious! Keep up the good work!

I'm pretty sure Trixie's going to end up in the mix sometime soon. It has to do with her answer in the first chapter about stage magicians being better than mimes...

This is hilarious, man. :rainbowlaugh: Pure comedy gold. I don't know what ridiculous situation you're going to get Twilight into next, but I'll definitely be watching to find out.

Now THIS was a gem of a read. X3 looking forward to future installments!

The waiter probably had the best line in the history of forever.

That's right Twilight, f@#k 'em up, there can only be one!

UPDATE GOD DAMMIT

Poor Twilight; I think Rarity deserves to be alone until she can get over herself.

Halfway through Chapter 1 I knew that Rarity and Twilight would get matched together. eventually  Even still, this remains one of the most refreshingly original and fun fics I've read.  Keep up the great work!

:twilightsmile:

Ha, this may be my favorite chapter yet, even though it feels shorter than the others. I didn't look at the word count so maybe it is. And how is it that you made Twilight cursing sound so... sexy?

Keep up the good work!

Am I the only one here who thinks Twilight looks better than Rarity?

>>4623 I think so too. Rarity's more glamorous, but Twilight's cuter. :twilightsmile:

from the message I kind of expected this to be a date with Luna, but Scratch is cool too.

:pinkiegasp: Why Lyra!?!? How could you do this to Bon Bon!?! :raritycry: But seriously I'm lovin this story and Lyra freaking out and leaving had me laughing :rainbowlaugh: Keep up the good work!

That was simply hilarious :rainbowlaugh: Better sleep with one eye open Twi :twilightoops:

Lousy Expies/Captain Ersatzs. They never learn. :rainbowlaugh: This just keeps getting better and better :pinkiehappy::heart:

>>4623 No you are not.:twilightsmile: Twilight's adorkableness knows no bounds!!! :twilightsmile:

Just when I thought Twilight was gonna have a fun date without anything awkward happening.:twilightoops: On a positive note thanks for getting me all hooked on the idea of TwiScratch :heart::pinkiehappy:

Aw, man. I don't know if Twilight is seriously considering it or if she was just saying that, but I hope she doesn't accept. I'm not really into polyamory, but I guess I'd keep reading anyway if she did, since I hate to quit halfway through. I love the "sugar tits" line, though. :rainbowlaugh:

lol :trollestia:

Aaannnd a idea, the princesses have magic,sure it was intended for unicorns but hey their the gods around here so...

awwww poor Trixie,so lonely  :fluttercry:

Twilight got herself another stalker :twilightoops:

The Great and Powerful Trixie, forever alone.

Yay for the new pairing of TwiScratch.   I hope they make Scratch this awesome in season 2.  This story somehow just keeps getting better.  I <3 U-Harmony.  :twilightsmile:

Poor Trixie.  Bad Twilight!  Don't hurt Trixie; she never meant to hurt you. :fluttercry:

Twixie is still my fave pairing, even though it is necessarily a rocky relationship.

I hope Trixie will be back in season 2.

OH. MY. GOD. You sir, are brilliant. Brilliant!:heart:

Aww, and I was kind of hoping this one would unexpectedly work out. The date's not supposed to start out with sex, Trixie! :trixieshiftright:

I love Rarity "accidentally" stumbling across Twilight's books hidden under the floorboards.:moustache:

For some reason I appreciate a serious part of this: just because two people - ponies - have compatible sexual orientations doesn't mean they will fall for each other. This is often neglected in shipfics and clopfics. Kudos!

The first thing I have actually guessed would happen in this fic.:trixieshiftright:

No, Twilight has no sense of foe-yay, and if I didn't know better I'd think Trixie reads tvtropes.:coolphoto:

The reasons for match made me think it was Luna. :twilightsheepish: But Scratch is still so awesome! :yay:

I could FEEL the awkwardness....:twilightoops:

Oh my god, I laughed so hard.

So, this thing is clearly being run by Celestia in order to troll ponies.  I am so delighted.  :derpytongue2:

Y'know, I was thinking that the most awkward date would be one with Celestia.

You have proven me wrong.  Well played, sir, well played.  :moustache:

The tvtropes reference makes it worth it.

Hmm... notice how twilight stuck around in the museum, which means both of them are still in the same building :trixieshiftright:

Moon's taking one from Fluttershy's book it seems.

It's gotta be Trollestia behind this. It just HAS to be.:trollestia:
