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.

I must follow my muse, as you well know, and the past couple of weeks my muse has said, "No, don't work on those stories, work on this one."

My muse is incredibly persuasive. The new story, DayBreak, will be up this weekend at the soonest, and next week at the latest.

But what's this story even about? you might ask. Why should I care? you might wonder.

Yessiree Bob, it’s time to experiment again.

Title: DayBreak [Dark][Adventure]

Rated: Teen (Action violence)

Celestia is not invincible. Strong, yes. Ageless, assuredly. Magical, undoubtedly. But not invincible.

The Princess of the Day has been attacked, and she did not escape unscathed.

While Luna fights against the mortal fear gripping her subjects in the wake of the assassination attempt, the assassin runs free. Twilight Sparkle must assemble a team to bring the attacker to justice. Few ponies can be trusted, and fewer still can be expected to succeed.

But the kingdom has heroes: The Knights of Equestria. Ponies who have stood against evil and won, who fight to make Equestria a safer place. They just haven’t met each other yet.

An adventurer past her prime.

A tinkerer with too much time on his hooves.

A spy whose primary instinct is to lie.

A dishonored soldier with an axe to grind.

Their individual skills make them ideal for the mission, but most have only worked alone.

Who is the assassin? Where did she come from? What is her purpose? Can the knights come together as a team, or will the assassin find her next mark?

Now, what’s dark about it? Frankly, ponies get the absolute snot kicked out of them. We’re talking beat ’em up, knock ’em down, drag ’em out style violence. It’s basically a Harrison Ford/Liam Neeson thriller (pick whichever is your favorite, if you have a preference).

Oh, and there’s also the bit about Luna’s internal struggles, Twilight’s sorrow, and redacted’s vengeance. But most of it is snot-kicking action violence.

I can totally understand skipping out if darkness isn’t your thing. However, I also hope to inject my signature brand of clever character moments into this story. It’s no slog of dark, depressing dreariness. In fact, I think for the most part it’ll be pretty fun.

At its heart, the reason I wanted to write this story in the first place is to ask the question: What happens to Equestria without Celestia? Who depends on her? Who is better off without? Who misses her? How does it affect the other princesses?

We all have our own vision of Celestia’s character. I hope you’ll enjoy getting a look at mine.

Also, this is in continuity with the Near-Future Ponyville series. I’ll post a new timeline as soon as I get it together.

Any preliminary thoughts?

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:
