I only found out about this fairly late in the game, but the makers of a pony race supplement for Pathfinder are running a kickstarter for a new deluxe edition. The original was pretty minimalist, with little to no art or setting fluff, just mechanics (the author says he made a genuine effort to keep them balanced and not overshadow core material), which I already figured is plenty; I can come up with my own fluff, or just steal from the show or the better fics. :D But the new book like like it might just rock, with all the extra material they're throwing in: Their own, completely original pony-populated fantasy setting. So yeah, I went ahead and backed it.
I'm not saying "back it"; it's not my place to tell you what to do with you're money, and besides they've already reached their goal and are even running out of stretch goals by now. I'm just saying it exists, and if it catches your interest you should take a look and decide for yourself. There's just under two weeks left if you think it's something you'd want in on.

Holy crap. I just finished chapter 10 of Kraken.
Take a moment to reattach your jaws, if you need to.
God damn. This chapter has been my boulder on the hillside; with everything that's been going pear-shaped with my life over the last year and the constant cycle of one step forward and two steps back, getting this chapter done has been like pulling teeth. My own. But I finally managed it. I've been working on it little by little this whole time; a paragraph here, a sentence there, but Christ it's been slow going. But between moving back in with family (which I'd been trying to avoid having to do, but now that I have there's way less for me to worry about day to day) and actually having a damn job again (a menial part-time one, but at least I don't have to worry about paying rent for the moment), things are actually on an upward slope again which left me with the mental reserves to not only finish, but give it a bit of a spit and polish before showing it to the world.
I can't thank you enough for your patience and support. I know this has been a long wait, and I hated pulling a George R.R. Martin on you guys, but it's done, and Celestia willing and the creek don't rise, chapter 11 won't take anywhere near as long.
PS: I've gone back through the previous chapters and made a couple minor edits I've been meaning to for a while. Nothing major, mostly a couple grammar fixes and changing some names around: Maneopoly > Monopony (credit for that one to Paleo Prints, who used it in one of his stories), Neighcronomicon > Necroneighmicon, and the laundry shop above the Nightmare Files is now Canterlot Laundry Services.

ObabScribbler on Youtube has just uploaded a video review of Ditzy Doo's Dismally Derpy Day, which aside from making me grin from ear to frickin' ear, I thought was reasonably thought out. She got the point of what I was trying to do with the story (flesh out a one-joke character), caught the details I'd worked into it, and even the criticisms she had I thought were sound. She's also fun to listen to and I hope she does more reviews, not just of my own stories.
Check it out, give unto her your precious views and likes.
EDIT: Oh, she's on FIMfic, too. Gods, if she turns out to have been one of my followers all this time I'm going to facehoof so hard I'll blow out the back of my skull like Marvin in Pulp Fiction... If so, I'm sorry! I'm just really bad with names! T_T
