A good story isn't measured by how long it is, but by how long it stays with you.

I'm Curious...

Reading Rainbow's "One Full Day" Hardcopy Edition!

Hey, guys!

Do you all remember my story Reading Rainbow?  Do you remember the story within the story that Rainbow Dash read to Twilight while laid up in the hospital?  Did you ever want to hold and read that poem in your very own hands with your very own eyes?

Well, now you can!

I have fleshed out plans for a fully illustrated hardcopy version of Reading Rainbow’s “One Full Day” poem.  It will feature approximately seventy-six—yes, seventy-six—pages of illustrations by the amazingly talented Ruirik.  They will accompany a fully updated, better-flowing rework of the poem’s phrasing and meter.

How much is it?  Well, isn’t that the ever-burning question!  Prices will depend on how many people are interested, but guidelines are as follows (before shipping costs):

60-99 books ordered: $30/book

100-199 books ordered: $25/book

200-299 books ordered: $20/book        

300+ books ordered (stretch goal!): $15/book

Yes, you read those prices right.  Only $15-$30 for seventy-six pages worth of pony.  That’s your standard price range for one standard picture by your standard pony artist.  That's a steal!!!  I am also considering allowing a few slots for OC background features for those who want to put in a little extra.  Current sizing is planned to be 7"x9".

Comment below or send a PM/telegram/instagram/carrier pigeon/smoke signal my way if you are interested in a copy.  Now, I ask of you: go spread the word, and let’s make this a thing!

Onward and Upward!

Two days ago was my five-year writerversary, the first time I put metaphorical pen to paper for something that wasn't school related.  It's weird, this path I've taken in my hobbies.  I never stopped my avid consumption of video games (that's actually way way on the rise, lately), but I somehow made room for this creative side of me I never knew existed until that day, August 24, 2011.

I went back to read through the original chapter of Transcendence that I have locked away in my google docs, and I can't help cringing and groaning at almost every sentence.  But at the same time, I can see the wonder of it all, clear as day.  The butterflies I had at my fingertips and the stars in my eyes.  The way writing made me feel whenever I sat down at the keyboard and pecked away another sentence about Scootaloo and her journey through the skies.  

Transcendence's original write was The Worst Possible Thing, but it's still me, and knowing my beginnings helps me know just how good a writer I've become.  So today I would like to share with you all 'The Original' draft of Transcendence in all its terrible, atrocious, and gag-inducing glory—the one that no one has seen since I took it down a good four years ago for the rewrite, the one that was first posted only to EqD in google doc form, and the one that, somehow, earned a 6-star rating from you all back when that was A Thing.

‘The Original’ Transcendence

Once you're done taking that trip down memory lane with me, I invite you to see just how far I've come in these five years and give my newest fic, Into the Dark a try.  Like Transcendence, it is a tale of two forever-intertwined souls overcoming hardship and striving for the impossible that lies just out of reach.  Like Transcendence, it is a story of regret and perseverance in spite of all the world throws at them.  But unlike Transcendence, it is much more.  It is a love story, and yet not; it is a searching story: a search for day and night, a search for the truth and a life unrestrained by the everlasting darkness encroaching upon the world, a place where the sun shines and all is good.  A search for a feeling that has never existed—that their collective written language has no word for, yet is nonetheless grand and worthy of sacrificing everything to give.

In a world that has never known love, how does one find the courage to let it bloom?


To those of you waiting for an update to Flock Together, I've actually drafted the next two chapters.  I plan on getting back to it once I finish Into the Dark, which is completely drafted and awaiting revisions, with the next chapter to be released pretty much right now.  To those of you awaiting an Into the Dark update, read the previous sentence!

P.S. I might make a thing of posting the original versions of all the chapters in the future, but I know for a fact that the original-original chapter 9 is lost to the nether of internet-space.  Sorry for that.

P.P.S.  If you're curious how I got my GDocs to look like it does above, go here.  It will change your life.

I actually have the next chapter drafted. Sorry for the poor adherence to any sort of schedule... Been busy with life and writing just isn't quite the engaging thing it once was. Lots of games distracting me, too, what with Dark Souls and No Man's Sky and many more.

Anyway, as far as writing is concerned, I'm focusing on finishing up Into the Dark first and then ill be back to Flock Together. I won't leave that story incomplete. Don't worry!

#63 · 6w, 4d ago · · ·

Corejo, are you ever going to finish the story Flock Together?

The ones you already have on your RiL shelf, silly!

>>2247512

So what should I read of yours next then? :trixieshiftright:

It's not terrible.  I was being more facetious than anything.  Though, it is my first fic and has the many trip-ups you'd expect, as well as an ending that leaves a lot to be desired.  Read if you like, though!  (Just don't judge me on it.  D:)
