I'm just a brony that enjoys writing human x pony romance stories. Check my blog and Story progress section for updates!


Whew, what an end to my work week!  I thought I was going to have to work tonight and pull a 12-hour shift.  This morning however, my supervisor comes up to me around six and says if I'll say over till 11, I shouldn't have to come in tonight.  Well, long story short, I stayed till 11 and have my whole 2-day weekend!  I think the following gif of Twilight shows how I feel about this.

You'll have to pardon me, I only got a 3-hour nap in this after.  So, naturally, I'm more than a little tired, which is why after I post this blog and check my updates, I'll be heading to bed.  No way I'm in any shape to write anymore tonight.  Besides, I always do better when I'm properly rested!

The Rainbow Dash story is coming along nicely.  I may have to break it up into two parts, and depending on how long it takes to write, I might release both parts separately.  This way you have something to look forward to.  As of last night, I have a little over 6,000 words, and I'm still on the first love scene. lol  No, it's nothing over the top, per say, I just have a pre-scene discussion that helps you get a better understanding of Rainbow Dash.  I have to confess, getting this story started has been a bit of a challenge.  I'm really trying to do Rainbow Dash's character justice.  She's a great deal different from the other mares I write about, so I want to proceed carefully.  While at the surface she hardly seems super warm and overly caring, if like me, you've paid close attention to her in the series, and fandom, you'll see there is a warm and caring side to her.  Anyway, I'm really excited about having some time to buckle down and work on this.  I do my best work when I'm off.  There's no pressure and I can go a my own pace, without an immediate deadline because of it being time to go back to work.  

Now, you may wonder also, why the title of my blog?  Well, I was out at the mall with my best friend this evening.  Now, I had almost forgotten that we have a Build-a-Bear Workshop at our mall.  I remember seeing pics on ebay of Plush Build-a-Bear ponies.  And, imagine the rush I felt when I saw plush Pinkie Pies and Rainbow Dashes in the window.  I seriously considered getting one of Rainbow Dash.  I told my friend, I'm such a brony!  He then told me, do you really need more plushies?  I said, of course I do.  So, I kicked the idea of making one around, while we browsed music and DVDs at FYE.  Well, it took all of 30 seconds, to make up my mind.  Especially when he told me she only costs $24!  I think that clinched things for me.  Anyway, rather than ramble on.  I've got pics of my adorable new Rainbow Dashie.  She is so cute and very well made.  First, here's a few fun things about the Build-a-Bear process.  You pick out an un-stuffed plushie, then take her over to the filling station, an attendant asks how soft or firmly packed you want the fill.  (I asked for it firm enough for her to stand).  Then, once they're filled, you get to take a tiny plush red heart and insert it in the opening in her back.  (Daww, you literally give them a heart).  Then after they are stitched up, you can pick out outfits/accesories (if you want).  All they have for the ponies are their gala outfits, so naturally I got Rainbow's =D.  It wasn't expensive either, $12.50.  Then you get to go over and create a birth certificate and register you pony, in case she is ever lost and then found and returned.  It was a fun experience.  And best of all, I found out the new plush ponies are doing "insanely" well (the clerk's words), and that they will be adding Twilight and Fluttershy next, most likely in November.  In time he said they'll probably do all of the main six.  Hopefully they'll do ever more.

But wow, even though I have a plush Rainbow Dash, to find this one when I wanted some fresh inspiration for my story, how ideal a find was this?  Well, below are the pics of my new Dashie.  I thought you might enjoy seeing what she looks like.  

Thank you as always for your support and just for being so Awesome!  Take care!

Time for an Update! · 12:19am

Hello everyone!  Not too much going on right now.  I am happy to announce that I'm really getting into my new Rainbow Dash story "Making the Rainbow Shine".  It took a little time, but I'm really connecting with Rainbow Dash and the story has been moving along nicely.  Currently I've got 4,496 words so far.  Originally I thought that maybe this one-shot would reach 10,000 words.  Well, after starting it, that estimate has gone up considerably.  I'm now projecting a length of roughly 12,000-14,000 words, give or take a thousand.  

I've started this story out a little differently than some of my other 2nd-person human x pony stories.  This time I have a flash back in the beginning that shows you meeting "your" mare.  I also include some brief back story (not as much as I did in "More Than Their Customer") but it should be enough to give you some idea about "your" relationship with Rainbow Dash as well as some of your experiences in Equestria.  In addition to this little blurb, there will be little notes about your time in the pony world as the story goes on.  I feel doing it this way will keep things flowing at a nice pace, rather than bombarding you with a huge chunk of back-story all at once.  

One other thing this story has going for it is this.  I think I've finally got a new approach for really spicing up my dialogue, so my characters sound more emotional as they talk.  I was given some good advice in a comment on my new Twilight story "She Will Always Be Your Twilight", plus I've been reading some other stories on here, and getting some great ideas toward improving my dialogue.  Now, I can't promise the cheesiness will leave their words, but hopefully the added emotion will help.  Besides, I know many of you enjoy the excessive fluff of my love stories, otherwise, you wouldn't be here.  lol

This new story should be a very good one when all is said and done.  It has a similar storyline to that of "Her Gentle Hooves" in that there is a love scene near the beginning, as well as near the end.  I'm also hoping to add a little more sensuality to the love scenes in this story.  From the fan art of Rainbow Dash I've seen, I think she can pull off sensual in a very sexy way, and that's considering that she is quite the tomboy.  Though one thing I'm tackling in this story (besides her - lol) is that even though she comes off as a dare-devil and a tomboy, that under all of that, there is a mare longing to be loved and treated right.  

Well, before I go, I have some more Rainbow Dash art to share with you.  Thanks as always for your support!  Take care!

I love her "Come Hither" eyes in this pic!

To quote Sweetie Belle in this one - "I really like her mane!"  Plus, Rainbow looks so beautiful, even though there is a strong anger in her eyes.

This one is titled - "Can I Sleep With You Tonight?"

I want to thank all of you for sharing your thoughts on my last blog.  I'm pleased that many of you are eager for my Rainbow Dash story, as well as my others as well.  That said, I'm going to respond to your comments form the last blog in a sort of collective fashion, before I crash for the morning.  lol Good old night shift.  

Now first I want to address my blog title.  It would seem I was just really tired.  Last night at work, another wank of a night, my load former suffered a major break down and left me with little more than cleaning to do for the first half of the night.  Anyway, while I was pushing my broom around, I got to thinking about my Rainbow Dash story.  Sudden, I started pretending to have a conversation with Rainbow in my head.  At first she was telling me not to worry about her story, if I was feeling so stumped, but then I said back to her (in thought), what if I just change my approach.  She said she agreed and said maybe I should just come at the scene from another angel, that way I could capture my thoughts about her awesomeness, and I think I have.  Getting back on track, I ended up connecting with her character and found a way to make the starting scene work to my liking.  The planning phase is everything.  If you can't get a good mental picture going to start, then you'll have trouble getting a story started, let alone off the ground.  So, I think I know what to do now.  Plus I've been getting some good ideas for the other parts of this story as well, and they are all going to be easier for me to write, because I spent a lot of time fantasizing about them.

Now, a number of you expressed your interest in my other stories.  Well, Luna, Celestia and Twilight will be getting updates, rest assured, but since Twilight has garnered plenty of my attention, for now, I will be giving Tia and Lulu my focus in the coming weeks.  

A few of you mentioned my planned Derpy fic.  Rest assured, Derpy will have her time, but it won't be for a while.  I know some of you want it now, but it won't just be a simple clopfic.  It's going to have to be several chapters just to accomplish what I'm hoping it can.  Second, Fluttershy has been popping up in the suggestions as of late.  I really have a soft spot for her.  Her soft spoken voice, her adorable cuteness and natural beauty, along with her charming personality make her one of my favorites among the main six.  So I have a 3rd person Human x Fluttershy story in the works.  Ironically I started it late last spring, around late May early June, but the idea never panned out.  I have since given it more thought and taken some feedback from a few of you.  But, like Derpy, Fluttershy is still a ways off.  I've got too many multiple chapter stories in the works to add more.  Doing a one-shot here or there is fine, but anything more will just add too much to my plate.  Besides, I don't want the others to feel too left out.

So, for now, I'm not really committing to or promising anything...other than, for right now: Rainbow Dash get's center stage, followed by Celestia.  I'm only planning two projects at once.  This way I don't get overwhelmed.  

So Expect "Making the Rainbow Shine" - Next, followed by Chapter 7 of "You Brighten My Day".  I'll keep you all in the loop as I progress.  Oh yeah, one more thing...  Vinyl Scratch fans, have no worries.  I am going to be doing my Vinyl fic somewhere around the updates of my other stories, so Vinyl will have her time.  Though, I've decided, it won't take place around Hearth's Warming Day.  I doubt in spring that a Christmas themed story will fit well, plus I can make my story work just as well set in late spring or early summer.  So, there you have my plans for now.  

I want to Thank all of YOU for offering your invaluable and greatly appreciated feedback!  It means a lot!  So, again, thank you!  And a WARM WELCOME TO MY NEWEST FOLLOWERS!  Thanks for keeping an eye on me!

Now before I go, I have two Rainbow Dash pics.  You will see why I've also decided to give her the chance she's been waiting so patiently for!

This was how Rainbow looked, when I said, I might not do her story, now.  I can't have her look at me with sad eyes, I just can't.

And if tears weren't bad enough, when I said I would give it another shot, Rainbow decided to lay on my bed and pose like this. She said, "Are you sure you still don't want to write about me?"  What can I say, she was rather convincing.

Hello my friends!  Well, now that my newest Twilight story has been posted, I'm just trying to figure out what I want to do next.  Originally, I was all set to start work on "Making the Rainbow Shine".  In fact, I started work on it last night, but for some reason I'm just having trouble getting the story started.  I don't know if my starting with a flashback that shows how you met Rainbow is my stumbling block or if I'm just having trouble connecting to her character, or perhaps I'm just tried from my job.  All I know is things just aren't jiving for me at the moment, maybe I am just tired.  What's odd is that I have this idea fully planned and outlined.  It should be a really good story, but for some reason I just can't explode into it like I have with my other ideas.  

So that's why the question in my blog title.  I have other stories that could use updated, like - "For Whom She Sparkles", "You Brighten My Day", and "A Total Eclipse of their Hearts".  Funny fact about the next chapter of all three of these stories, each is due to have a love/clop scene in roughly the beginning to middle of the chapter.  Plus, I have no lack of drive or vision for working on them.  So they are all valid options, and I'd still like to do my Vinyl Scratch story.  I know many of you were looking forward to that one.  My only question there is this...do you want it to still take place around Hearth's Warming Day or do you just want it to take place in say spring or summer.  The story won't be affected much, because it's mainly going to be about "your" one-year anniversary with Vinyl and the presents you have for each other, topped off with a tender love/clop scene.  

In addition to the above mentioned ideas, I've also been getting more and more requests for another Redheart story.  So, I'm not sure what I want to work on next.

What would you guys like to see me work on next?  Is everyone on board for Rainbow Dash?  Or would you like me to update one of my other stories?  I really want to work on my Rainbow Dash story, I've kept her waiting for a while now, but I feel like I should update my other stories, given how much you all love them.  So maybe that's why I'm really feeling stumped more than any of the reasons I mentioned above.  Some sort of writer's guilt if you will.  If you wouldn't mind offering your thoughts, I'd appreciate it!  

Thank you as always for your support!  I hope I can continue to bring you great pony stories!

Hello everyone!  Well, the secrecy ends now!  I've been working on a special alicorn Twilight story, and now that it's safely in the hands of the mods, I can give you a little more info about it.  

My new story is called "She Will Always Be Your Twilight" and is 7,681 words long.  It's one of my typical human x pony romantic clopfics.  The reason for the lack of details was that I haven't seen many human x alicorn Twilight stories show up, and I was hoping to be one of the first.  Anyway, more than the originality of this tale, I'd like to tell you why I decided to write this.  First off, I know some of you thought it odd that I'm working on another Twilight story, right after posting the last one, but the idea for this came while I was working on that one.  I watched the season 3 finale three times.  Now, I'll admit, at first I wasn't too nuts about this development.  Mainly because the episode felt rushed, but after taking time to let it all sink in and note the positive aspects of the episode, like Celestia's beautiful song.  I had a chance to think about a number of things.  First off, from the beginning Twilight was building to this change.  Secondly, it's not like she won't still be the Twilight we know and love.  After Celestia told her that she's a princess, Twilight asked, "Is there a book about being a princess I should read?"  When I heard her say that, I knew she was still the same Twilight.  

The more I pondered this whole ascension of Twilight's and the reactions of the fans, the more I got to thinking....how does Twilight feel about all of this?  You know, she never asked to become an alicorn.  All she did was try to help her friends by reversing the spell she cast.  Then I got to thinking, how can this work into a story.  Well, one thing let to another and thanks to some great pics on Deviant Art, I found more resolve that suggested this tribute to Twilight was needed.  

So I hope you will all check out my story.  I've spent close to a month planning and working on it, and trying to make it another of my feel provoking tales.  With that all said, I have some pics of alicorn Twilight for you to enjoy.  The ones I found with her crying really touched my heart and got me thinking, why should we hate her just because she's gained a crown and wings?  It doesn't mean she's going to change and become a whole different pony, does it?  Oh, and wait till you see the cover pic!  It tugs at my heart every time I look at it!

Thanks as always for your support my friends!  Till next time!  Twilight Forever!!

Wow!  Can you believe in just over a year this is my 200th blog post, already?  It sort of sneaked up on me.  When I was checking comments on one of my stories, I saw the last one noted as post 199, and a few of you mentioned it to me as well.  

What a difference having some time off has made.  I didn't get a whole lot done yesterday (Saturday), oh but today, I was back in my element!  Fully back to my normal writing-self, I cranked out over 3,000 words today and finished my newest special Twilight one-shot.  It's 7,359 words, before editing, and has turned out quite nicely.  The feels are there and everything I was hoping for.  I just need to smooth it over and edit it.  I'm still not spilling what it's about until it's in the hands of the mods.  Once it's submitted I'll post a special blog offering a sneak peak.  

That aside, I'm glad so many of you are stoked for my upcoming Rainbow Dash fic, which I will be getting started later tonight and working on tomorrow!  Mmm, I can hardly wait.  A number of you are interested in seeing how I plan on portraying Rainbow Dash.  Well, I've been stewing on ideas for this particular fic for months, and have already outlined it.  So, it's only a matter of writing the story.  

Now in addition to starting "Making the Rainbow Shine", I will also be editing my new Twilight project.  Then once these two fics are posted, my plan is to work on Chapter 7 of "You Brighten My Day", followed by chapter 3 of my incredibly popular Twilight story "For Whom She Sparkles", which has soared to an incredible 800+ favorites and 510 vote ups in just two weeks!  I'm ecstatic here!!  In all the time I spent working on it, I never dreamed it'd take off like this!  Oh, and Luna fans, please don't worry, "A Total Eclipse of Their Hearts" has so not been forgotten!  I'm planning an update for Luna as well.  I just ran into a few snags back in February and the last two weeks of this month, but I'm getting back into the swing of things again!  So have no fear.

One thing I'd like to share with all of you is what happened during my 12-hour shift the other night...  I day-dreamed about more pony stories!  I started the night thinking about Twilight, then I moved on to mentally outline the start of chapter 6 of my Celestia story.  After that, I gave new thought to my Vinyl Scratch fic and some fun material I plan on using in that one-shot(which sadly won't be for a little while yet).  Then, I started having full scene fantasies about a new Trixie romance, with one of my OC humans.  At first I was thinking about their love life, but then I flashed back to earlier in their relationship, to an outing where Trixie took her human lover out for smoothies.  Trixie wanted to enjoy some fruit themed smoothies, but also began discussing with her special somepony about more bland varieties, like tea flavored or even hay flavored, but then she and he got to discussing the likelihood of humans liking grass.  But I was amazed that I thought out all of this while at work.  It's been days since I could get into my happy place at work.  So it looks like I'm back!!  Now, my Trixie story is still in the development phases and may not arrive on the project queue for quite some time, but any of you that like her, or may be interesting in seeing what I've got planned for her, might find it enjoyable.  I personally want to show her some love and give Trixie some happiness.  Her life seems to be fraught with some much sorrow, I just want to see her happy.  I was glad to see her back in season 3, but wished they had done more with her.  

Well, I've rambled on enough for now.  I have some pics for you, a Twilight pic, and a Rainbow Dash pic!  Plus a follower of mine, Vexus Nightwish, has returned after being away due to major laptop troubles.  Now, following his return, he went and crafted some OCs of me as a pony.  I've also earned the pony name of Jaydex Nightingale.  The first is what he thinks I'd look like as pony, with a cutie mark.  The second is what I thought an OC of me might look like.  Enjoy, and as always my friends, thank you for your continued support!  It's greatly appreciated!

Edit II - I was going to post an new blog, but I'm just too sleepy right now.  I do have some good news.  My creativity is back, but I need to recharge my batteries before I can tackle any writing.  The good news is that I set up the next scene of my current story and I finally feel connected to it again!  Plus I'm really feeling psyched about starting my Rainbow Dash fic.  I can hardly wait!  Plus my next blog...will be my 200th blog!!  So I want to make it something special!  Till later!  - Jaydex

EDIT - FINALLY!!  I was able to connect to my muse again, just now!!  I was going over the last scene I left off on my current story and managed to smooth it over and prep it for the next scene.  And, I even got my creative thought process back online again!  I was taking a little break and it came to me how to lead into the next scene, so I could bridge the two scenes together!  This is great!!  What a feeling! =D

Hello again, everyone!  My apologies for not personally responding to your comments in my last blog.  Sadly, the time just isn't there.  But, I do have some good news!  I found out last night that, even though I have to work Good Friday, I will have Saturday Night and Sunday Night off.  So this marathon or work madness will soon be over.  I just have to survive a 12-hour shift tonight and then one final 8-hour shift Friday Night.  Then Saturday morning I can finally chill for a little!  

In addition to this news, I'm finally starting to feel a little morel like myself again.  I might be able to hop back into my current Twilight project and get things moving again.  But I will be resting up in preparation for this 12-hour shift tonight.  

As for your feedback to the two surveys.  I enjoyed hearing about your favorite ponies.  And, I am equally thankful for your feedback on a story being able to have merit, even if the plot is rather simplistic, but well-written.  As always you've given me plenty to think about, and I am grateful.

Thank you all for your continued support.  And can you believe my new story "For Whom She Sparkles" has 800 people following it?!  That's awesome!  I'm looking forward to continuing this new story, I just need to get back on track with a few things first.  But I have started planning more of chapter 3, so hopefully I can get working on it before too long.  I've also been getting quite a few questions about when my next Redheart story will be out.  I'm still planning that one as well, so again we'll have to see.  My current projects are: My Secret Twilight Story, my Rainbow Dash story, and another chapter of Celestia's story.  Plus I do want to update my Dragon Ball Z/My Little Pony Crossover at some point as well.  Just never fear, I have no intention of stressing over any of this, and my schedule is tentative.  So, nothing is in stone.  But after my current story, I'd like to give Rainbow Dash some attention.  I think she's waited long enough now.  

Till Next time my friends!

As I continue my respite, and another long work week, I thought I'd hold two more surveys!  

First, who are you two favorite ponies and why?  You can list more than two if you want.  But I was just wondering, which ponies all of you like best.

Now, for the second survey, this is about stories in general, just something that came to me on the way home from work this morning.  Do you think a story can still be good if it doesn't have the most intricately woven plot or storyline?  Can a simple theme still make for an immersible and enjoyable read?  What are your thoughts?  

I'm starting to feel my creative drive return, but sadly it still looks like little rest for the weary in the days ahead.  So, I'll be taking it easy for awhile, but as many of you said, surely things will get better in time.  And I won't worry about writing anything till it feels right.  That way I don't force anything and end up giving all of you less than my very best.  =D  

Well, since I'm just rambling now, I'll cut it off here.  Thank you as always for your support and for just being the awesome followers that you are!

I've been missing Luna as of late, so enjoy a few pics of the always beautiful Princess of the Night - Luna!!  BTW, it's Full-Moon tonight!  =D  Maybe I can enjoy the sight of the Bella Luna, as I head to work!

Feeling Tired... · 1:04am

Hey everyone!  Working that 7-day, 60 hour work week has really left me feeling drained.  I haven't made much progress since that 12-hour shift the other day.  Last night I managed to add about 300 words to my current story, but tonight I can barely read over what I wrote so far.  I made it about three pages in before I just felt a sudden sense of...well, for lack of a better word "blah".  I'm not ill and I'm not pushing myself too hard.  The fact that I felt this wave of fatigue, suggests I'm going to back off, lest I push myself too hard.  Besides, I promised myself before, I won't be one of those writers who writes with his brain turned-off.  I owe it to myself and especially to all of you to write when I'm at my best.

I hope you will continue to bear with me as you have in the past.  Hopefully this seven day work week will be the only one and I'll at least get a day off this week.  Right now I'm looking at a 4 to 6 day work week.  If my employer grows a heart and lets us have the weekend and Good Friday off, I'll have a 3-day weekend, but given their track record, I'm not sure I feel so optimistic this time.  I'll hope for the best, but remain realistic about the most likely outcome.  I'm just going to take it easy for a while and when it feels right, then I'll hope back into my writing.  

Thank you all for your support and warm regards! I'm sure I'll be my normal self in a day or two.  I just remembered something ArmedBrony said in my second to last blog.  He said, "You can't rush perfection!"  So, I was sure to keep that in mind, tonight.  Take care everyone!

Progress and Such · 12:43am

As of this morning, I finished a 12-hour shift at work.  That was tiring.  I was never so happy to crash in my bed.  I'm still a little tired, so I'm not going to push myself too hard writing-wise tonight.  But my story is still coming along nicely, despite my employer.  I'm getting ready to start the really good part, which will comprise the last half of this one-shot I'm working on.  I'm enjoying it so far.  Right now, I'm nearing the projected half-way point at almost 3,900 words.  

Now I'm thinking about doing my NSFW blog tomorrow night, but I'm not sure if I should feature only one pony or would you like to see pics of several different ponies?  I can go either way.  And I wouldn't mind doing a few more of these, but I doubt I'll do them as often as some people do.  

Well, not much else going on right now.  My mind is still a little dazed from work, but otherwise I'm dong A-ok! =D  Eight more days till I have a day off.  Hopefully there won't be anymore surprise 12's in my schedule.  But if there are...then so be it.  I'm just glad to have the ponies to turn to and of course all of you, with your support and warm regards!  I don't think I can ever say enough, how much I value having all of you as both followers and readers!  Never forget, you're all the best!!  =D

Till my next blog, have some more pony pics!  The last one is heavy on the dawww, so keep your crash carts at the ready!
