I'm leaving. · 2:47pm
OK guys, look, I'm so sick and tired of people being all like "When are you gonna update <story>? It's been so long! Whah! Whah! Whah!"
First off, messages like these only piss me off and make me not want to write, because I feel like I'm being demanded to continue these stories. My job is a shithole where I do most of the physical labor while most of my coworkers get off early and my boss is a patronizing panderer who only acknowledges my efforts with a worthless pat on the back, and when I get home, I have to deal with a shitty family that does nothing but fight and bitch, especially my mom, who can't even get off her ass long enough to throw her own trash away. Between this, I have my own ambitions that I barely get any time to pursue, and I'm hoping to get out of my shit job and away from my (hard-pressed to call them) family.
I don't have time to write. I barely have time to read. And frankly, with how awful the show has been getting lately, I don't even think I'd want to write about ponies anymore. Yeah, you heard me right, I hate the new episodes; I think they suck, they're badly written, have no effort put into them, and just keep rehashing old lessons. That, and I'm sick of hearing about fucking breezies. I hate the breezies. Not to mention, my life has been making me into a much more critical and cynical person than I used to be, and I'm noticing things about Equestria itself that just seem really, really messed up, and that I honestly believe carry very disturbing subliminal messages. I know kids won't notice most of them, but in some cases, it's not hard to see, and they will notice them. It's making me hate the Mane Six, and REALLY hate Celestia and Luna. Yes, Luna. I think it's really messed up that she goes into people's minds and watches their dreams, no matter how noble her intentions.
Though, to be fair, I probably wouldn't have noticed most of these flaws were it not for fimfics pointing them out and making a big deal out of them, so I guess it's sort of the fandom's fault that I can't really call myself a fan anymore. I have no more interest in My Little Pony other than something cute to look at now and then, and even then, that's only fan art.
The only reason I'm sticking around this site is to follow the stories on my faves list that still interest me. Once those end, I'll be gone. I have no interest in continuing my stories, however, they are still my stories, and I will not allow anyone to just pick them up and continue them, because that's art theft, and I will find out if you do it
Maybe one day, the show will be good again. Maybe I'll learn to look past those issues and just enjoy the ride of each new episode... and maybe Half Life 3 will be released. Or Dinosaur Planet. Whichever comes first.
