Chapter Ten · 3:56pm
Another Chapter · 11:48pm
One Full Day · 7:19pm
I've had a little pet project I've been working on the last week or so. Remember that poem from Reading Rainbow? I rewrote it to fix its numerous metrical problems. For those curious as to how much was changed (or are stubbornly in love with the original), here is a side-by-side comparison to do with as you will. Enjoy!
A New Chapter of Transcendence · 1:56pm
Looking For More · 8:53pm
These past few weeks have been hell for me in terms of school work and other real life issues. I apologize Transcendence has been on an unannounced hiatus for as long as it has been. At the moment, I am building up a buffer of chapters so that I know I'l be able to release on a set schedule when I resume. Thanks for your patience.
In other news, my roommate and I have recently picked up Warframe, a F2P, space-age, over-the-shoulder shooter game. It's really fun when we play, but the difficulty scale ramps up to the tenth power when playing solo; and playing online is equivalent to Honey Boo Boo's family on a Walmart shopping spree—it just isn't that fun without friends. Friends, though, are in no short supply in this fandom. So, if any of you play this game (or just want to try it out), add Corejo for fun and adventure!
And zombie killing. Because everyone loves zombie killing.
Transcendence · 9:06pm
Transcendence's chapter eight has finally (yes, finally!) been resent sent to my reviewers. If this version has taken their comments to heart, we will be back on schedule here shortly.
40,000 story views! Woo!
Okay, now for the reason I'm blogging. Transcendence is starting to get back on its feet. After a good month of being afraid to look at the train wreck that is chapter eight, I have gotten through the rough patches and a second draft should be off to my reviewers soon. The good news in addition to that is all the following chapters are essentially the same as they were, so regular updates after eight is released (woo!). Also, that Twilicorn fic I spoke of earlier. I have finished two of five prospective chapters. It has also been sent to the master of all things elastic.
And because I'm of the perspective that everything should be a learning experience (hence why I write), I leave you with a short story on perspective written by Mark Twain, titled The War Prayer.
Not an April Fool's Day Joke · 1:42am
Everything I said in the review itself followed my opinion of the story; the formatting was the only joke. To restate my opinion, I like Third Time's a Charm. It's fun. It is hefty in the wordy department, but that is a small price to pay for Rarity being Rarity, and Dashie being Dashie. The inciting incident is logical enough (if the big bold word MAGIC is plausible enough for you [that and Sweetie Belle being cute works too, I guess]) and the rest falls into place as a story should. I don't like talking much about stories because I don't like revealing much of the plot; that's what a good synopsis is supposed to do (though my "joke review" is a summary of chapters one and two).
But yes, go read it.
No, not that one; the one where I tell you Transcendence has a lot more work to be done before the next chapter is ready. Sorry. In the meantime, though, I can tell you a bit about what I have planned in the near future.
Working as Intended will get some long-deserved love in the way of a [Complete] tag;
A Twilight psychothriller is in the works;
A Transcendence side story will be polished after its long wait in the "finished but horrible" cabinet;
A Twipie shenanigans one-shot in the vein of S1E15 (collaboration with CoolStoryBrony);
And a Twilicorn [Dark] thriller featuring none other than Badass Twilight (currently receiving my "writer's block diversion" attention).
I think I'm seeing a trend in story ideas here. Why is Twilight so awesome?
