I'm gonna take the heartbeat blog post one step further and accompany it with the publishing of an all-new story from me. But before I tell you that story, I have to tell you this one.
A bunch of authors met at Bronycon and decided to keep in touch after leaving Baltimore. Then Wanderer D got a grand idea for a collaborative fic project featuring many of these said writers, and the Crackfic Circleship project was born. Line up every character who's ever spoken on the show, generate crack pairings, and dole them out to authors one by one. The idea was that each successive author would take the character from the previous story segment and pair him or her with their next love interest, so on and so forth, until the circleship was closed.
Well, it didn't last very long. Life and delays ensued until there were only six of us left from the fourteen who had originally signed on. As it turns out, crackfics are great for a laugh so long as you don't actually have to write them and make them work, and one of our members realized (belatedly) that he was playing pedophilia for a joke. He Who Rolls Random Numbers smiles rarely upon his flock.
As a result, the circleship we had dreamed up looks more like something you would see floating thousands of miles above the planetary core of Ord Ibanna. Of note, my submission is the only one that is incomplete. Apologies to everyone who thought they could place their faith in me again.
But the project is ours, we made it, and many of those who dropped out of the project are looking to come back in and bridge the gaps. Who knows? We might even just pull this off in time.
Without further ado, here are the offerings of the Crackfic Circleship Collaboration.
And for those of you are still with me, here's my contribution to the project. I hope you enjoy Sunset Shimmer Has a Problem, and hope you'll stick with it long enough to see what happens when Sunset Shimmer and Pinkie Pie share a room.
