I guess have some music too :3c
Been thinking of a story the past couple of days. I've seen people base stories around music and I've always thought it was a neat idea so I thought of one myself. This one is based off of the song "The Ice Is Getting Thinner" by Death Cab for Cutie (which I linked on my blog a few weeks ago but here it is again).
Anyway I guess you can tell that the song is about a couple who tried to stay together but eventually the relationship just dissolved, so that's what this story will be about. I decided to go with Rainbow Dash and Alicorn Twilight somewhat for logistic reasons but mostly because I like that ship. So the background set up of it is that Twilight has been busy doing princess stuff in Canterlot while Rainbow Dash has been busy with Rainbow Dash stuff (not sure yet...hate to use such a common reason but probably Wonderbolts) and have been maintaining a long distance relationship and pretty much haven't seen each other in a year. But for plot reasons (I usually come up with these details later) they have an entire winter off and decided to spend that time with each other. At first, they are extremely excited to see each other and are all lovey dovey couple and junk. However, slowly they both start to find out how much they've changed in a year and both of them begin to realize that they aren't interested in each other anymore. Except neither of them know that they're feeling the same way and everything they do and say end up making them grow further and further apart. The situation eventually comes to a head in the beginning of spring and they decide to break it off and go their separate ways. That's basically the gist of it...not a very long world build here since it's really just a short story. I'm pretty interested in this idea and may just focus on this if I can manage to get motivated. I haven't written much in awhile so hopefully I can get the ball rolling on this and clear the cobwebs and get back to writing more.
Also I think it would be pretty neat to see a story that doesn't really have a happy ending. I know most shipfics are nice and heartwarming and the ship sails and it feels nice. This, however, is pretty much the exact opposite as we start with a strong relationship and see it dissolve over the course of the story (and also making it completely clear that this ship has sunk).
Anyway small update on my life and stuff happening. Not doing to well...I think I may have a case of seasonal depression. It's usually like this in the winter months where I become some kind of self-deprecating, apathetic shell of myself usually between the months of November to February. It's not helping that I've been dealing with financial crisis after financial crisis since the month of October which has really crushed my spirits down to nothing. So I guess I'm sorry if I end up acting like a complete jackass over the next few months (you know...like writing all of this in the first place). Hopefully my money troubles will be over soon and my depression will clear up. I'm hoping getting started on writing will help take my mind off my troubles and also get me writing again (who even knows if it'll take off though...I want to be optimistic but that's pretty hard for me right now).
