    The Vinyl and Octavia Series: Now on TVTropes!

    'Sup everyone.

    The Vinyl and Octavia Series The Vinyl and Octavia Series totally has a TVTropes page now, for those of you who are into that sort of thing. Just putting this out there since I'm quite pleased with this development, since TVTropes is a damn awesome site, and the Vinyl and Octavia series is pretty damn fun to write. So yeah, if anyone wants to visit the page (or add more stuff to it, for those of you who are super nice and awesome), then that'd be appreciated!

    Peace out :twilightsmile:

    Potentially Scrapping a Fic

    Went to write some of DJ P0N-3 vs. Symphonia tonight, and I'm just finding that I... I just can't. It's not writer's block or anything, I'm just not feeling inspired by this idea any more. I have some ideas that I feel are very good for it, but even knowing what I can (potentially) put into the fic in the future, I'm still not really feeling it. A large part of me feels like just scrapping the whole thing, which would be the first time I've done so for a fic. I really do feel like just scrapping it, but at the same time I feel like that's a very lazy way to do things, and that means that all the time I've spent on it so far has been a massive waste.

    Urgh... the only thing that would make me feel like writing it some more would be getting another spark of inspiration for it, which I don't see happening.

    So, what would people think if I did scrap this? Like I said, I'm feeling really uninspired by it, and I just don't want to write for it anymore because it feels like a chore.

    100 Favourites!

    As of one day, twenty-two minutes ago, one of my stories officially has one hundred favourites! Obviously it's Spin The Bottle, seeing as how that's my most popular fic, in spite of the fact that I wrote it in about three hours with little to no prior planning. (And yes, it got 100 thumbs ups a few weeks ago, but that doesn't count because I say so).

    Thanks to everyone who's read and favourited it, in addition to any other of my fics that may have been read. Personally, whilst I'm really happy with Spin the Bottle, I think that it still has a few flaws, whereas my favourite fic I've written has been My Little Mission: Sneaking is Magic. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think that it felt a lot more fun to write than my other stories, mainly because I didn't try and take it too seriously. I really do need to get off my flank and start writing a sequel.

    (And on a similar note, why the hay does Drowning Her Sorrows have so many favourites and stuff whereas DJ P0N-3 vs. Symphonia has so few? The former is horrible!)

    Anyway, as I said earlier, thanks to everyone who has read, enjoyed, and favourited any of my fics. Although I write for fun, getting stories read and enjoyed certainly makes it more enjoyable, and I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy it when I see that one of my fics has been enjoyed by someone. So in summary, thanks! Here's to the future!

good thing vinyl brought the machette

Interesting start and a good read to say the least, do continue!

Ohhhh damn. For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island! Oh glorious day!

Anyways, I enjoyed this story so far. I find it quite interesting to see how this will turn out since they both have such different personalities and such. Will fav!

Keep it up bro! :rainbowkiss:

yea umm i think octy was right they were going the wrong way

“Let’s see…” began Octavia, opening her lunchbox, “… I have apples, carrots, and celery stalks. Oh, and colourful flowers too.”

That sounds...familiar... :trixieshiftright:


HA! I didn't notice it 'till you pointed it out. Nice.

Great story so far. Don't know why, but at the quicksand part I was thinking of The Scorpion King.:twilightoops: Can't wait for another update. And what do you mean by "pulp-y"?


I might be able to update tomorrow or Thursday, it depends upon how lazy I get. And as for pulp-y, I mean I want it to feel a bit like pulp magazines of the 20's and 30's. Very Indiana Jones-esque stuff.

Glad to see that you enjoy it! :pinkiehappy:


Oh. Thanks for explaining. That link helped.I love Lovecraft and The Phantom.

Well, I await your update.:twilightsmile:

>>2036145 I made the same joke in a story I still have yet to publish. It's been sitting there, waiting for me to write more on it before I send it in for approval.

Very funny keep it up

so i take it vinyl is trying to find the graves of somepony she knew a long time ago

Vinyl’s impulsiveness and lack of concern for her own wellbeing was making her more and more impatient to get back to the tour group.

well being*

Spotting Vinyl’s saddlebag lying where Vinyl had collapsed, a new idea occurred to Octavia.If

Octavia. If*

Good chapter. I have a feeling that Octavia may break that promise, at least for a minute. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:


Oops, thanks for pointing out those errors. Fixed now.

I'm sorta busy over the next few days, so I don't know when I'll be able to update. Glad to see that you're enjoying it so far though!

It is stupidly stupid.

You told us to tell you how stupid it was...

At least… that’s what he said that last time I talked to him.”

that (the second one) or replace it with "the"

Also, you should use pronouns more often. I saw a couple sentences and paragraphs where you would use Vinyl a lot. It kinda disrupted flow (for me). Like here:

She could see why Vinyl was so determined to complete her self-appointed mission, yet at the same time couldn’t find it in her heart to empathise enough to accompany Vinyl.

You should replace one of the Vinyl's with the appropriate pronoun. Also, commas after "yet" and "time".

Great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:


Oops! Thanks again for picking up on my errors! I realise the non-using-as-many-pronouns-as-I-should thing can be a bit annoying, but I worry that if I use too many "she" and "her"s in a sentence, it can get confusing as to whether Octavia or Vinyl are being referred too. I forget whether there's a grammar rule to do with that.

Would you like to proofread future chapters?


Sure. I would be honored.:twilightsmile:


Awesome, I'll send you PM's whenever I finish a chapter then.

Thank you, I really appreciate it! :pinkiehappy:

Very nice (This is DoctorWhooves69 incase you were wandering)



Another great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

Yes. Yes you have.

In other news, this was an excellent chapter to an already excellent story.

“Of course I am, Tavi. You’re the hottest mare I know.”

There was a moment of silence before the two friends burst out laughing.

SHIPPING!! (And Vinyl laughed so Tavi thought she was joking so she wouldn't hate her for being gay and having a crush on her)

'Nuther great chapter. I like how this is coming along. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:


For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island!




:pinkiesad2: Well this is awkward.

>>2197136 Don't listen to the mean pony dude. Tavi/ Vinyl Island stories are awesome! :raritywink:


Nah, that's all right; An Island isn't my best story :twilightsmile:



As for the story itself, I'm enjoying it so far. Came for the syvvak, stayed for the plot. :scootangel:


Thank you! :twilightsmile: I've been reading An Island and so far it's pretty good fun!

And that, my dear Tavi, is why you never help the bad guy. That is why the good path is so much harder.

Great chap, Doc. Really coming along nice. Can't wait for more.


wow that was really low, she saved his life out of the goodness of her heart and in return he condemns her


And that is why he is the villain :trollestia:

Octavia, you just can't go one story without getting shipped via FedEx

It was another great chapter Doc. That friendshipping scene was cute. I can't wait for more.

When Octavia tried to "attack hug" Vinyl, I immediately thought about her doing it anime style:

"VINYL-CHAN, DESUUU~" *Glomp* :pinkiecrazy:

And then another chapter for bonus clop an epilogue.

First! Ha never had a chance to do that before!:pinkiehappy:

Ha! One of the better Vinyl/Octavia stories I've read.

Thuroughly enjoyed this. Well done sir! :pinkiehappy:

Yay for ambiguous endings! :rainbowlaugh:

It was a great OctaScratch friendshipping. Loved it from start to finish.. I can't wait for more OctaScratch from you, man.


Thank you! Comments like this really do make my day!


The next story I have in mind is OctaScratch, but it's just a one-shot. Hopefully I can continue to satisfy :raritywink:


That was, indeed, satisfying.

Thank you for providing this to lighten up my day. OctaScratch is always fun to read, the characters just seem to bounce off so well.

Keep writing~


so will they be using the flower or with they be taking the seeds and try to grow more and possibly return some to the temple later

So glad I finally got around to reading the conclusion of this.
