"For fun" is the best reason to do anything. "The best" is the best way to do everything.

The Man Himself!

Having been a fan since the first quarter of 2012, MyHobby finally decided that participating in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom wasn't nearly as weird as he had at first thought. Deciding to share his not-weirdness with the entire Internet, he registered on to FIMFiction.net in order to publish his works without all of that silly "working with an actual publishing company" stuff.

He also decided that his best legal defense was to stick his head between his knees and kiss his portly rump goodbye. He hopes to this day that Hasbro will not notice the nerd currently making himself a nuisance around the Internet, and wishes them many a long season to come.

He seems to be physically unable to work on any one story at a time. Eesh.

He is an amateur author, cartoonist, and composer.* You can find links to his non-pony work on his Tumblr (he may start using that again someday).

Pinkie Pie is his hero, just saying.

So is Rainbow Dash, but slightly less so.

*Hahaha no. Not really at all.

Timeline · 5:48pm

I like lists. Timelines are like lists of events. Therefore, I like timelines.

It's said that if you write without a map, you'll never be able to make a map from your writing. So I made a map through time. :pinkiegasp: In the interest of keeping myself consistent, I've constructed a timeline for the Near-future Ponyville series.

The timeline will be expanded going forward, but for now I just wanted to pull together a quick example of where the stories sit in relation to each other. I'll probably get off my butt and make a pretty graphic when I actually get the (heh) time.

1 <Button Mash and Sweetie Belle must travel to the griffon homeland and beyond to prevent the devious archaeologist Dr. Caballeron from opening Pandora's Box. Novel, Adventure, Romance>

2 <Snails goes through life with his head in the clouds. What’s he see up there that’s so interesting? Short Story, Slice of Life, Romance>

>>1331165 It is! It's completely crazy. You should follow me if you want to watch that craziness unfold! :raritywink:

>>1331108

mostly, I'm preparing for double-shotober (my own insane version of one-shotober)

Don't tell me that means you'll post two one-shots a day in October! That would be truly crazy! :pinkiegasp:

what stories of yours should I read?

Well, if you're looking for comedy, my best is probably Bluebloods Ascension; or, Alicorns Just Aren't What They Used to Be. It's the story of how Blueblood became an alicorn, and how Princess Celestia dealt with it.

If you're looking for a cute story about friendship, take a look at Hay-oh, Welcome to Hayburger. Before Rarity owned Carousel Boutique, she was a cashier for Hayburger. Then Pinkie Pie rolled into town...

If you want a feelsy slice of life with a good dose of romance, take a look at Scootaloo Will Fly! Scootaloo's still unable to fly, even now that she's almost fully grown. She's gonna change that ASAP, and she's gonna need help from her friends to do it. It's not finished, but it's got a good start.

Beyond that, you'll probably have to go through and see if anything catches your eye. I have a hard time recommending old stories when I know they're not perfect. :twilightblush:

Not too shabby at all! I'm feeling pretty chipper, actually. Writing about ponies tends to do that!

How's about you? Is the inspiration flowing? Are the words churning? Are the stories publishing? :pinkiehappy:

Hi MyHobby! How are you?:pinkiehappy:
