I hope everybody here has a happy holiday season!

On that note, I should probably try and explain what's been going on with me for the past few weeks that's been eating me so.

The long and the short of it has been that my family, for the past few months, has basically been trying to split itself apart at the seams. Feuds started cropping up between my father and my aunt and uncle, which led to my cousin getting involved in the feud with my dad, which led to my mother getting into a feud with my aunt, which led my grandmother to get into a spat with my mother, only for her to eventually SWITCH sides, which led to my Uncle getting caught in the middle of his wife and son vs. his sister and mother, and the whole thing was a horseshoe-nail butterfly-effect THING of epic proportions that basically set everyone in my family at each other's throats, and there's me caught in the middle of everything, about the only one who wants everybody to maybe calm the hell down for a split second so we can talk about things rationally. This whole thing started well over a year ago now, but it's finally started coming to a real head only recently around the beginning of November.

With that in mind, plus general stress from the fact that our house is basically falling apart right now (seriously, it's like there's ALWAYS something wrong with the damn house), and several more private factors, I was basically at the end of my rope for a little bit. I think I'm doing a bit better now, and it looks like my family might finally be calming down some (possibly), but I'm sorry to say that I'm still going to be taking some time off for a bit.

I'm going to be going on a big trip for most of January and February to visit some close friends of mine that I haven't seen . I don't know how available I'll be to stream during that time, and since I can barely be relied upon to get things out when I don't have somebody leaning over my shoulder, I'm unsure how much in the way of Applebloom, Smash Bros Disharmony, or any of my other stories will get out.

In the meanwhile, though, I've been far more inspired to write short, drabble-like stories, like Trixie vs. Roadside Assistance, or the Twilight Sparkle Ships Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash series. I have several ideas for one shot comedy-type stories, and I hope some of you will enjoy them.

Also, expect to see more blogs like this one in the near future. I have a lot of supplemental worldbuilding I'd like to do for some of my various stories, and Applebloom in particular. The next one will likely be either "Magic and the NON-Pony Races," or profiles of the Solar and Lunar guards as seen in the latest chapter of Applebloom. There's also going to be a supplemental commentary on that chapter in the very near future because a lot of people had questions and comments and concerns about this latest chapter.

(Really I should have released that blog sooner but I was too busy being a dopey mopey. oops.)

Anyway, the main, long form stories might not update for a while. I won't say anything for CERTAIN, but with my track record (and the fact that I'm currently quite frustrated with the next chapter of Applebloom) suggest that it might be a couple months before the next one gets out. At the same time, though, I might actually start work on the sequel to the current story, or that side story collection that I mentioned a while back. The sequel feels like it'll be a lot shorter and easier to write, and the side stories might well fall into that aforementioned "drabble" category that I've been more comfortable with recently.

I also might rewrite/finish The Shadow in the Hollow. That's been left alone for a while and I'm feeling in eldritch moods again. I always get a little lovecrafty around this time of year because it's the time of year I have an excuse to break out the lovecraftian christmas carols.

So anyway, there'll be a few things to look forward to in the near future. Hopefully I won't disappoint anybody too badly. The long and the short of it is I've been really stressed lately and I'm a little sick of long form, high-pressure stories as a result at the moment. Things are finally starting to look a little bit up, though, so hopefully when I make my triumphant return a ways into 2016, I'll be refreshed and ready enough to start back up on those, assuming I don't pick them back up sooner.

Again, happy holidays everybody, and I hope you all have a great new year!

Can't say I do. While I'm passingly aware of the youtube garbage going on at the moment due to certain content creators I follow being hit with things, I'm not sure why you'd come to me with this. I'm not a video creator.

#109 · 6d, 7h ago · · ·

I plan on making some AMVs for MLP.  I’ve uploaded random fan videos to Youtube before, but the people in charge of that site took them down just as quickly and made a strike against my profile.  I tried mirroring my videos, which worked for a while until the same thing happened.

I filed a counter-claim of Fair Use, which it was.  I wasn’t making money or anything off my vids.  And I for one refuse to give away my personal information, which YouTube wanted me to do in order to restore my videos and possibly my reputation.

Do you know of any alternatives to YouTube WITHOUT the copyright nonsense?  And keep in mind that Dailymotion and Veoh are not options since I've already tried them and met with the same garbage.

Nah, but seriously. First I'm going to get over this goddamn cold I've landed myself with and then I'm going to get to work on chapter 12. I might possibly start a new fic as well, though that's up in the air. Depends on how much time I can devote to writing.

Since getting my job, production has slowed to a near halt, but there'll be a stream tomorrow. If luck is on my side, I'll finish the next chapter of Smash.
