    Site! Why You Keep Changing?

    Wow, fimfiction has changed quite a bit since my humble beginning where I first drunkenly stepped through the door and picked up a keyboard. It's been a crazy time reading the writing here and it still captivates me to find such outstanding writers that join together to write about ponies. I can only wish to be half as good a writer as many people here. A mastery of spelling and forming sentences at least would be great but hey, I won't ask too much.

    So recently I put up a preview of the chapter I was prepared to put out, and as many would notice it is still not there. The reason for this is I've noticed it needed quite a bit of work still, and perhaps I might have rushed it through a bit too much for the sake of trying to finish Rorschach in Equestria. Not a very good idea, so right now I'm in the process of improving it. So as of yet I continue to work on it in my spare time meanwhile starting the rough draft of my own novel.

    Oh another thing, I've been contacted before from people seeking to write their own Rorschach stories and base it on this one. My response is always going to be go right ahead, I honestly do not mind at all and love to see spin offs of this or different interpretations. Just remember to link it to me so I have the chance to read it! Oh, and the usual courtesy of mentioning me if you take from the storyline or specific events. Beyond that I, in no way, am exclusive in Rorschach or Watchmen crossovers into Ponydom. Go right ahead, I will encourage it.

    Potential new project preview

    Stupid idiot, what were you thinking taking in this crying, pooping, miserable little mess he thought bitterly to himself. It’s been two days since he found the little mongrel and she wouldn’t stop making noise. Always flailing her hooves around like a fool, either laughing or wailing at the top of her longs. He hadn’t managed to sleep in all that time. I’m hungry she’d cry out in her baby speak, pay attention to me! she’d scream like a banshee, I’m happy! she’d screech just because.

    It was mind numbing. At this rate he was losing feathers by the clump full. His once beautiful sharp wings looked ragged, aging by decades with each hour spent with the rascal. Usually he’d distract the little pestilence by giving her a bobble to play with. It made a popping noise like bubbles which caught her attention, he’d discovered that trick very quickly. She loved bubbles, it worked wonders to give him at least two hours of slumber during the day. Nighttime didn’t work, she had nightmares, keeping him up like a zombie wandering the darkness.

    How quickly his entire life revolved around that little filly. It brought a flair of anger to his mind. He tried to do a good deed and now his life was miserable... though it wasn’t like it was much better in the first place...

    Letting out a ragged side he shifted on old cushioned sofa to glare down at the babbling annoyance on the floor. The little grey filly was playing with some blocks now, bouncing them against each other as she talked to herself, her pegasus wings fluttering in joy. The little tuft of blonde mane poked wildly in all directions despite attempts to keep it contained. Others called her adorable but he failed to see what the fuss was about. When he looked at her all he could see was a hemorrhage to his life. A disgusting little source of bodily fluids that liked to trip over herself and break his stuff.

    “You’re sure happy with yourself,” he grumbled in his deep bass voice. The filly looked up from her toys to him, those big eyes shining with happiness. She reached out to him with her little grey hooves. Even as he spoke she was oblivious to what it was he was saying. “Little annoyance, you sure are happy about that, huh? You can’t even understand what I’m saying you stupid sniveling baby.”

    Reaching out he tapped her forehead when she tried to get up. She fell back to her haunches, momentarily stunned from being sent back to the floor but quickly returning to babbling happily with one small difference. Her eyes had gone cross-eyed again, that dumb thing she did sometimes when she was happy, or just for no reason at all.

    “Look at you, derpy eyed... Heh, maybe that’s what I should call you instead of Ditzy. Derpy stupid little hooves. How does that sound?” he asked mockingly to the baby. The baby’s answer was to squeal in delight, ignorant to how she was being taunted.

    Grumbling in annoyance he watched as the filly tried to get up again to go to him. He reached out again to tap her forehead to keep her away. He was startled to find that he suddenly couldn’t pull away. His heart skipped a beat,  eyes widening in surprise. The little filly had clung onto his talons, hugging the pointed digits affectionately. He was stuck, unable to pull away from little Ditzy as she held onto him with all of her meager strength.

    And then she started to slobber all over his claw. The moment was lost and his heart continued to beat normally once more. He rolled his eyes in exasperation and pulled his talons away from her drooling mouth. Wiping away the spit on the side of the couch he reached out again to scoop up the baby.

    “Come on then, let’s see if you’re hungry you little ditzy thing.” The gryphon said, carrying the still giggling Ditzy to their meager little pantry. So little food left, and with the last of his valuables sold they’d run out of bits and coins very soon. He wasn’t sure what they were going to do, already he was skipping meals to feed her.

    He didn’t know what the two of them were going to do when the food ran out. The babe couldn’t tell but he was worried, they might have to leave their home soon if he couldn’t find work....

    To Followers, favorites, and everything in between

    Hello everyone, I guess it's been awhile since last I said anything. My abrupt return was pretty much just a sudden appearance before a disappearance. I put out a chapter, perhaps half-cocked, and went back to lurking in the shadows with the light of the computer monitor illuminating me. Rather melodramatic but hey I'm in one of those moods, and what a mood it is.

    Depression is not a word I use often. I'm the type of guy who bottles it all up and sucks up the hardships of the world as just life. Mellow, going in stride. When I'm bothered or sad  I put on a smile and pretend to be happy. Even before I knew of Pinkie Pie and her wondrous ways I was always the one to cheer up my friends or even people I didn't know just for the sake of them being happy. I guess I rather never cared if the stress got to me or contemplated what happens when I'm finally broke down. I just kept on smile and keeping it a secret that I was drowning on the inside, too prideful to admit I need to help. But hey, I always survive and get through so no worries. They always say if you mimic the actions of a happy person you'll be happy, right? Well they forgot to mention it sometimes hurts to smile.

    As some of you might have known. Well, things aren't exactly going very good for me. They still aren't, and I don't know when they'll improve so I'll come out and say it. I don't when I'll finish Rorschach in Equestria. It won't be one of those stories that is forgotten and forever left unfinished. So don't go unfavoriting it or anything if you want to see the eventual completion of it. But for now I don't see myself being able to write as I once did.

    I'll be around, I think I won't ever leave this site or the community. I'll be giving praise to my favorite authors, helping others start out or proofreading for them. Talking to fans that still want to chat. And just all around try to be a part of the brony community. But for now I'm ashamed to say that as a writer... I wouldn't exactly call myself one at the moment. So in the meantime I'll just be some guy. Just another brony.

    I don't do Q&As but as always questions in the comments will be answered.

    Oh, and Happy Holidays.

    The Great return

    Dressed in the rags, your wonderful neighborhood tramp Ex Nihilos welcomes you into his humble abode. What was once a wondrous apartment with furniture and wondrous cultural icons like an 'I can haz cheezburgr' posts and an Beatles poster with a coffee stain on the corner now lays barren. A homeless man sleeps in a corner and a condemned sign sits in the meager trashcan.

    "Hello my friends, come in, come in! Don't mind the dead rat, that's my dinner for tonight. Alright so you might have noticed, I might have a made a few teeny tiny mistakes in the form of bad judgment, a few bad investments, and getting caught running a pyramid scheme on the elderly...."

    He goes silent to reflect on how badly that last endeavor went.

    "Anyway! I am... relatively back. I have been stockpiling chapters to get back on a semi-regular basis of posting rather that 'whenever I feel like it'. But knowing life it's going to pimp slap me in the face and I'll have an excuse ready to go as to why I can't pay the landlord!"

    "...So! Any questions? Post them down below and I'll probably ignore it! Naw, I'm kidding I'll answer them..."

    Back from Star Wars Celebration VI

    Got to meet Anthony Daniels, Seth Green, Timothy Zahn, and attended a bunch of writer's seminars.

    Oh also spend my entire life savings on Star Wars stuff but totally worth it!

    And now back to College and writing.

Instead of being killed in the cold Antarctic by Dr. Manhattan, Rorschach finds himself rematerialized in a strange new, pony filled world. He finds himself drawn into the lives of the ponies of Ponyville but some ponies fear that this sociopath will bring danger and darkness to an otherwise peaceful existence. Will the mane 6 help Walter Kovac find peace within himself or will he bring them all down with him in his cold views of reality and existence?

Rorschach in  Equestria? :pinkiegasp:

You have my attention..  :rainbowkiss:

Rorschach's journal, January 31, 2012

PONIES ARE AWESOME!:rainbowkiss:


That's all.

Caution is the keyword here. You have to be very careful with how you do this. I'll track you.

Wait, if it's 1985 does that mean he gets to meet all the G1 ponies?  :derpytongue2:

Okay. This is fucking AWESOME. For the love of god MOAR

Curious... The writing style feels similar to the journals from the graphic novel, so that's a plus. :applejackunsure:

Also, what's Rorschach going to eat? If he tries snacking on some poison joke, I will just laugh so hard. :rainbowlaugh:

Interesting. Please, do go on. "Munches popcorn"

Will it be continuously through "journal vision" or will the POV shift to normal narration once he starts talking to the ponies?

The streets fill with cake and punch, and the ponies will look up and shout "Come party!" and I will whisper "No".

inital reaction:

*sees title*

..........get the f*** outta here. :unsuresweetie:

This pleases me...

Proceed.

oh god this is awesome but....

>>174767

This.

Tread carefully. Very carefully.

ONLY THE PENITENT MAN SHALL PASS....

The accumulated cute of all their parties and apples will foam up about their withers and all the ponies and unicorns and pegasuses will look up and shout "Love us!"... and I'll whisper "d'aaawwwww."

>>174767 Originally I came up with the idea a week ago with a single event in mind, the hard part was making a story to go along with it but I finally have a rough draft of what I'm going to do.

>>174872 I've thought about that and really came to the conclusion that it wold be mixed. I felt it would be better if it wasn't all in Rorschach's rambling journal but it will still all be from his perspective for the sake of continuity.

>>174929 I assure you I have every pony's safety in mind! Of course that doesn't mean terrible things aren't going to happen- quite the opposite- but still!

>>174937 Well its hard to say if Rorschach is penitent or not. He lived his life without compromise breaking fingers and throwing people down elevator shafts in order to cleanse the city of its criminal underbelly. Still you'll just have to read on and see :eeyup:

Wow, you guys have really put me in a better mood! I literally just overslept through a class before I checked my page here.

Hmmmm.... intrigued I am. Please go on. :twilightsmile:

All right... I'll bite.

Tracked. :3

:pinkiegasp::rainbowkiss::ajsmug:

I like it :D... You get 5 stars for the idea alone!

Seems interesting....it's just....after so many "(insert important person from a game/book/movie) is in Equestria" they all look the same and get boring, like reading a Story about a popular shipping. Seen it 10+ times now and it's not interesting anymore.

0_0    i am interested :pinkiegasp: tracked

Rorschach is about to become a brony. I'm a huge fan of The Watchmen - I've read it a dozen times or so and still find new things. I think you present Rorschach very authentically. :applejackunsure: Just... Eh... Don't make Rorschach kill a pony unless it's Snips or Snails.:ajsmug:

Will track to see where this goes.

Please, don't derail this. Rorschach wouldn't like it.

I'm also holding off on rating this, but you write Rorschach quite well. I'm with everyone else in waiting to see where this goes. The premise sounds so absurd, but as a huge fan of Watchmen and now MLP this could be the most amazing fic ever if done right.

Some class-A trolling by Dr Manhattan there.

>>174854

OMG. Author. AUTHOR. DO THIS. THIS SUGGESTION I'M REPLYING TO RIGHT HERE D: DO THIIIIS :D *squee* :pinkiehappy:

You, sir, just got yourself a track.

However I find myself curious, did Dr. Manhattan simply send Rorschach to Equestria? Or, like he said at the end of the comic, is Equestria the simple, peaceful world he intended to create for himself far away from humanity?

Like many others, I have to say, this is very interesting. You have written Rorschach very well so far, but tread carefully, my friend. You could either have hundreds of fans screaming your name in praise or hundreds of fans trying to burn down your house in anger. :pinkiehappy: Good luck!

This looks interesting. Very well written, and it seems to be taking an interesting direction. Two thumbs- er, hooves- up!

**Sits back into my chair and stiples my fingers togeather** go on

*Read the tags*

This is not going to end well for the ponies.

What I am hoping for here can be summed up quite simply as follows.

Choose Your Deity: Player 1, Dr. Manhattan

Choose Your Deity: Player 2, Discord

Manhattan vs Discord, Battle 1, Fight!!!

>>175255 I can see how you feel about that and in a lot of cases I would agree with you. What I've found though besides who the character is that matters but rather what they are, what they represent. I find a crossover fiction for MLP must have a character who is vastly different to the main storyline's mood or one who is quite similar and can be played off (or rather made fanon). If you just pluck some random guy out of reality, like say Ezio from Assassin's Creed without reason and without purpose and put him in some place that isn't really interesting, just sort becomes a 'what if this guy was there for this event and did this thing'.

>>175413 You sir are thinking quite ahead of yourself. I will say this though, that does get addressed some time later in the story but don't hold your breathe for it... cause you'll probably just pass out and miss the other stuff in between.

Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes.

This could be the best crossover ever, tracking :pinkiehappy:

Greatest. Unexpected crossover. Ever.

Wow, this is really good.  Keep Rorschach's character on track and this will make a great story.  The only thing I have to say is that Rorschach isn't really a sociopath like you said in the description. He cares too much about other people, has standards, and feels guilt (when he confronts his landlady and sees her kids, he backs off).  He's violent and unpredictable, but those alone don't make for a sociopath.  The Comedian fits the criteria much better.  :twistnerd:

>>175743 I actually regret using the word sociopath a few hours after making the description because honestly you're right that he isn't really a sociopath or a psychopath either.

Seriously, you wrote this amazingly. When I started reading this, I was expecting the standard, "Mr. X gets plucked up, and dropped off in Ponyville. Blah blah blah happens," but the way you did it by using his "journal speak,"... just... wow...

T-T-T-Trackin'! :pinkiecrazy:

Rorschach's Journal. October 12th, 1986: Unicorn lying in alley this morning, stomach full from the salt lick no doubt. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended troughs and the troughs are full of sugar and when the drains finally scab over, all the ponis will drown. The accumulated sweetness of all their sunshine and rainbows will rise up about their waists and all the bakers and princesses will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "neigh."

:pinkiecrazy:

Very nice, I love how the story isn't grimdark (yet?) but being told from the point of view of a man of questionable sanity like Rorschach leaves a definitely grimdark and definitely delicious taste in my mouth. I also think you did a great job of mimicking Rorschach's writing/speaking style, it definitely helped to build the atmosphere. I'm very intrigued by this story, I'll be waiting for more. You've just won a track and fave, my good sir. I'll wait for subsequent chapters before I rate it, but expect my rating to be high. Great job, keep it up! :twilightsmile:

Wow. This is going to end up really good. I read the watchmen as well as watched the movie. Brilliant idea.

>>175377

Trolling? Hell, Manhattan gave him something better than death to end his "pain" if we can stay that. He sent him to the most peaceful place in all realities so he could heal those psychological and emotional scars from earth. Thats not trolling, that's compassion right there. A glimpse of humanity is still present in manhattan apparently.

Why does this work. I am so confused. :pinkiecrazy:

Whoa. :rainbowderp: That was intense.

Lots of things could go wrong.

You are avoiding everyone of them. Keep it up !

Interesting first meeting, I can see that having several unpleasant repercussions down the line.

:rainbowderp:....

That...

Was...

AMAZING!

Dang nab it... I am so hooked on this now :applejackunsure:

You've left his traditional voice behind - the writing is too correct and clear - but that's rather nececassary for a story like thins. KEEP IT UP.

promising, very promising, i will watch this with intent interest.

>>176084 Again part of the reason why I didn't want to do everything in a journal way even though I had an idea to do it that way. Rorschach I feel isn't much for writing into detail or explaining things since it would technically be reiterating what he says. So I plan to switch to a more overarching first person perspective, more clear and correct but still sounding like it is Rorschach (or at least I'll try to). I plan to make it clearer in chapter three where Rorschach's journal begins and ends. though I think I'll make an edit or two on the second to correct any confusion.
