My apologies my friends. I was hoping to have this blog up late last night. Now, after I got up from my nap, I ended up spending the rest of the day hanging out with my best friend. But I still have today and tomorrow (until I got back into work at 11pm). So there is still plenty of time for me to write!
Okay then, on to the update. Currently, chapter 6 of "You Brighten My Day" is sitting at 6,182 words, but since 852 words of that is the first version of the "I Love You" scene, I will be saving those in a "Deleted Scenes" file, because I've got an even better idea for the scene in mind, and it will tie in with one of the major events in this chapter. And for now, I'm going to write all the scenes I have planned for chapter 6, including Daniel and Celestia's second love scene. Once I'm done, I'll gauge the length and determine if I should split it into two chapters. But some of you said go for the long chapter. That and I've seen plenty of fics on here with chapters totaling over 23,000 words! Now I don't think this chapter will come remotely close to that length. I just wanted you all to be aware that it could reach 13,000-14,000 depending on the scenes, which are of an undetermined length at the moment. I honestly don't have a problem with making a chapter that length, but the downside is that it will take longer till its posted, but on the other hand, it will be packed full of more content! I'm sure those of you that love this story won't mind at all!
Now your eyes aren't deceiving you, the word "Survey" is once again in my blog title. This one relates, again, to my Celestia story. I was just curious about hearing your thoughts on how long Celestia should be on Earth. This is not a vote, I will ultimately make my own choice, but I do value your input as always. So that in mind, how long should she stay?
A. 1-2 months
B. 6 months
C. 1 year
D. More than 1 year
And keep in mind, back in chapter 1, Luna never said how long Celestia could take for her time off, and that she hadn't had any true time off in months, not to mention from the countless years she spent watching over Equestria. So keep that in mind. Personally, I'm leaning towards C. 1 year. Now in order to keep the story from becoming stale or keeping to tired a pace, I'll be doing just like chapter 4 and elapsing time and doing key scenes as time passes.
I also have one more thought, not related to my Celestia fic, that I wanted to share with all of you. I heard that Season 3 was going to have more episodes, but I haven't confirmed that rumor. But I'm not here to talk about the show. However, I will note my delight at hearing that Season 4 is confirmed at 26 episodes! Anyway, let me get to my point. Since I became a brony, I've always been very fond of Twilight, and despite Nurse Redheart, the spa twins - Aloe & Lotus, Luna and Celestia, I still like Twilight very much! Now, even if things turn out that she ascends and becomes an alicorn, it no longer bothers me. I'll still write stories in which she's a unicorn, I'll always love her best that way. Though, I'm equally thrilled with the idea of writing stories with her as an alicorn. Now, I'm not going to say anything other than this, I have an alicorn Twilight story in the works. The idea came to me as I was waking up this morning. It should be a very heartwarming story, the type you've come to expect from me. But for now, that's all I'm going to say. Sorry for begin so cryptic, but as Discord said, "Where's the fun in making sense?" =D
Well, that about does it for this update. Hope you all are doing well! Enjoy two more Celestia pics and till later my awesome friends! Oh, and what the hay, have some Twilight pics as well!
This pic of Celestia is just beautiful, even if she doesn't look like her normal G4 self. The style, while similar to that of "The Last Unicorn" is lovely in its own light.
The lovely and radiant princess...Celestia!
Twilight: Finally! Jaydex is going to write a fic about me! How wonderful!
Twilight: Gee, I wonder if it will be a romance? I'd better practice my flirting pose!
