I just random dropped by, thinking, "not seen Eakin around anywhere for ages..."  

Dang. But that's how it goes, I guess. Sadly, this sort of thing seems to be pretty endemic these days; a lot of the greats have moved on or just stopped now.

(I 'spose I can't talk, my time is a little more limited these days as well, not that anyone could accuse me of being one of the aforementioned.)

(Even the GitP ponythread is very quiet these days. even with the new season upon us.)

Oh, also: I noticed your writing had dropped off, but I don't think I've ever seen you get the multi-week logout time that people who make a clean break, or even go on random hiatuses (like me), often have.  Does this mean you're still reading?  I hope so; I get how "all or nothing" could apply to writing, but I'd want you to keep enjoying the site somehow if you can.

(Also also: thanks for all your great horsewords, please don't take any of this as whining that you owe us more free labor, hope the aforementioned changes in your life are going well, etc. -- not to be glib, but I'm never sure how authors feel about these questions and therefore how to phrase stuff like this.)

I came checking what your status was because I was curious if you still had plans for Friendship is Optimal: The Movie.  Then again, life, and my RiL list, provide many opportunities in the fullness of time, so I'd kind of prefer to wait and see if you ever do get a chance to finish it.

I would love some confirmation that A Scent of the Fine Life/Taste II: The Tastening would involve Ebby's douchebag ex getting his comeuppance, even if the story never gets written.  Seeing you seamlessly connect FiM canon to bloody magical war, PTSD, and skull-rape in the time loop trilogy was awesome, yet seeing you connect it to gulags and untouchable corrupt nobles in Taste was surprisingly upsetting.  (I assume the difference is because "Twilight Sparkle wrecks shit" and "Scootaloo gets a loving family" are satisfying in very different ways.  Or because it's easier for me to accept gross bug things as evil than cute ponies.  Or because I'm a lot more likely to encounter abuses of authority than I am to get trapped in a time loop...)

Any fics in particular?

So.... does that mean you still wouldn't say anything if I were to bug you for outlines to the possible endings for all the fics you've never finished?
