A bit of motivation to write has hit me tonight... And while I don't know if it will last, I'm going to try to make this one count. I'm going to attempt to continue A Great Surprise Gone Sour with Jaiden. I believe we had something fun going there, and I want to see if we can make somethin' fun to read out of it!
I'm thinking of marking A Great Surprise Gone Sour as complete, and starting a new story as as sequel to that one. Filled with shenanigans between the Mane Six plus the two human protagonists. Yes, I know, it's not original, but it's something that shall be fun to write if we get around to it.
I don't know what will become of Something Epic however... That future seems... Bleak, I'm afraid. Most of the group is either not available to write anymore, or just do not have the motivation to continue it. It was a Summer Project for all of us, and it ended pretty much when school began, sadly. I suppose school is the devil to us all in some regards. You'll be happy to know that we're doing pretty well, with some life problems to boot. Nothing we shouldn't be able to tackle, hopefully.
Still, I'd like to thank everyone who followed, read, criticized, and enjoyed that story. We had tons of fun with the collab while it lasted, and you never know. We might just make a come back to that. :)
A little off-topic now: I've heard of a spin-off show being in the works for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It will apparently be called 'Equestria Girls', and it will feature the Mane Six being transported into the world of humans, and being transformed into humans themselves, with them only keeping their original skin color. Their cutie marks, I believe, are on their clothes. The post is on Equestria Daily, so it shouldn't be too hard to find if you're more curious. I'm not entirely too sure how to feel about this. But, one of my friends gave a valid theory as to why this might be happening.
Since the show: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was generally directed towards the family to enjoy, not just little girls. And since us bronies enjoy it, we believe that they may be making Equestria Girls as a show that will target little girls. I don't know who will be directing it. I'm curious to see if the original VAers will be used or not, same goes to Daniel Ingram. I'm more or less interested in Season 4, especially since there shall be 26 episodes. At the same time, I'm a bit apprehensive, as Hasbro seems to be interfering more and more with the show and the fandom themselves. Just take a look at Fighting is Magic and MLP: Online. Both have been taken down by Cease & Desist letters, sadly. Not to mention, parody shows like My Little Pony: Witchcraft is Magic have been taken down in the same method as well. I just hope these interferences stop soon, else things may just get ugly.
Ah well, I'm generally an optimist, with some realist in me. I think we can pull through, aye fellow bronies? We're strong and proud, and I think we can do this just fine.
Welp, thanks for listening to my little updates/rants. XD I'll try to lessen up on the rants, and increase the updates. :)
Toodles for now!
