"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.

Blueblood's Ascension

Sep
11th
2014

Yes, I've completed the final edits for Blueblood's Ascension Part III; or, Even Alicorns Have Dreams. I was extra excited for this story at the beginning, so I've decided to be extra picky now that it's come to its end. I did my best to boost it up from merely good to great. Did I succeed? Let history be my judge.



For those who've already read it all the way through--who don't want to read all the way through again--here's a list of the chapters with edits.

1. A Dreamy Prince

--minor dialogue edits at the end of the chapter, introducing the curse earlier.

2. A Much Expected Gathering

--minor dialogue edits at the end of the chapter to reveal implications about the family curse.

4. Aliconversation

--Celestia's dialogue edited to fix small chronology issue with Lightning Dust/Luna's monologue edited to give fuller picture of the history of Tartarus

12. Understandings and the Missing Thereof

--minor edit to Blueblood's outburst.

17. Begging Your Pardon

--dialogue edited to account for the curse already being revealed.

34. Best Flight Ever

--major dialogue edit to remove plot hole/removal of banishment subplot

40. Reality’s Collapsing

--major scene change to give Flash Sentry's character arc a better conclusion/minor dialogue edit for Scorpan

41. In Which Much is Wrapped Up

--major scene change to remove banishment subplot and wrap up the series as a whole/minor prose edits to reflect new outcome

42. Chapter the Very Last; or, a Short Epilogue

--minor dialogue edit to remove banishment subplot.


The banishment subplot was removed because I had no real way of justifying it at all. Most of the dialogue edits near the beginning were mild attempts at giving the characters reasons for going to Tartarus beyond "But I must go!" I'm still not too sure I hit that one out of the park.

Above all, the ending is a bit more soulful than before. I believe so, anyhow. :pinkiehappy:

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

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:
