Scratch that · 2:35am

Just

Work is being made

On things

I don't really have a set order because my brain is doing gymnastics to decide what I do or don't write.

I WANT TO FINISH PINKITY FIRST.  But, I don't know if I will.  I don't know when I'll do Faith expansion, or finish Out of the Blue.  I don't know.

But consider it like, all being worked on okay? okay

Time for some coffee

It's gonna be terrible.

I will not pay to see it in theaters.

IF YOU WANT A MORE THOUGHT-OUT OPINION GO FIND A BLOG OF PRETTY MUCH LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE.

SO

FINALS THIS WEEK

BASICALLY HALF DONE ALREADY

HERE IS HOW WRITING IS GONNA GO NOW I THINK:

Right now, I'm writing Pinkity (that which is based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion), and I don't have a time table for when that is done as I send off every section to some pre-readers to make it not terrible.

After that... I think I'm taking another ootb break, but just for one story.  For no reason I can tell, I'm having huge issues writing the next scene, so I'm gonna do some other things.  First, I'm going to add some scenes to Faith, making it probably 10-15k longer or so.  Then, I'll probably make a sequel that will explain some things that I intentionally left open (Such as, why were other changelings trying to kidnap Fluttershy?), and probably end that au-fluttershy-is-a-changeling arc thing.

And then I will finish ootb then I write persona fic AND THAT IS HOPEFULLY THE NEW PLAN.

ALL RIGHT.  I got 72 new followers from that feature.  My first featured story, but whatever.  I guess people really like their changelings.

SO HERE IS THE STATE OF THE UNION NINES:

Fanfiction:

I am already starting on the next chapter of Out of the Blue already, but with finals 3 weeks away, and me taking 16 credit hours, I cannot guarantee much.  Hopefully something is done before June, and the whole fic will be done before summer is over.  That is the plan.  It's actually pretty easy now that I'm actually getting to all the scenes and interactions I have had brewing in my head for a year, and I am past most of the date.  Trust me, if that chapter sucked, then, honestly, I'm sorry, but I'm just happy to be past it.  Plot is gonna start happening again in chapter 10.

If you are new here:  After I finish Out of the Blue, I'm going to be working on an epic: A Persona crossover.  It will take elements from both Persona 3 and 4 (3 in the dark hour, and 4 in the murder mystery and facing-your-shadow-self persona), and star an OC with the mane six.  Hopefully this all has some people excited.  I don't do many adventure fics (only made two if you count Faith), and those are my favorite kind to read, and hopefully I can write a good one.

ONTO THE ISSUES THAT CAN DELAY THESE THINGS HAPPENING:

I'm moving soon; like, within the next 2-3 months probably.  I'll be moving out of my parents' home and in with friends in a city a few hours away.  He has a large house and rents out rooms and the basement, and I can get a room on his floor for 200/month.  That's pretty ace.  He's probably one of my best friends, and his brother--who is also chill--is living with him.  All I need to do is find a job and I'll be living very happily away from my folks.

I ALSO am basically 100% sure that I'm going to Bronycon.  I don't have my planet tickets YET, but uh, none of the other costs need to be made ahead of time, and the airport I'm using is small; the tickets were priced maybe 5-10 dollars more expensive now than they were in February.  I also am probably going to be on a fanfiction panel hosted by the pre-readers.  There's lots of unconfirmed stuff, but this is all my plan.

SO YEAH, HORSE WORDS AND A CONVENTION.  THAT IS ALL.

PRE-READER FICS · 4:57am

So the reason I wrote Faith, that monster of a story (that is currently featured and has a ton of faves, bwah??) in one week is because the pre-readers from EQD had a fun little event where we all write prompts, then randomly distribute them, and give ourselves a week to write something.

HERE ARE SOME FICS:

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/95925/faith

Prompt: Totally Lost (from Pre-reader who is also a bear)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/97092/not-even-trying

Prompt: Sweetie Belle sets out to try to find a way to become a crystal pony, in hopes the change will make her sister pay more attention to her. (from Pegasus Rescue Brigade)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/97079/fluttershys-tail

Prompt: Fluttershy's tail always drags along the ground. She finds some strange and interesting things caught in there... (from Pascoite)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/96841/little-sister

Prompt: Three ponies enter, but only one leaves... (from CupcakesNom)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/95771/infallible

Prompt: Celestia's Terrible Secret--REVEALED! (from Benman)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/97067/scootaloo-contain-protect

Prompt: Scootaloo has no parents because she's actually a magical construct designed to behave like a normal pony. She's either been lost or is being 'field tested', and her true nature is revealed when a passphrase is spoken in her presence. The precise nature of her purpose, the reveal, and the repercussions of this are up to you. (from PresentPerfect)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/96866/a-step-backward

Prompt: What if.. say.. Gilda was working for Celestia and was being a total twat BECAUSE Celestia asked her to? What if the Mane 6 -needed- that sort of support to look good, because they're that far behind the others? IE… they're incompetent but mean well.. so Celestia has to 'hire' Gilda and the other 'villains' to make Twilight and the others look good and bolster their confidence?

Write a story that explores this (remote) possibility... (from Mechanic)

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/96571/horizons

Prompt: Celestia never had a lot of free time, and now that Luna is back to help run Equestria after her 1000 year exile, Celestia finds herself with more free time than she knows what to do with. Luna discovers that during her exile, Celestia never had a special somepony, so she takes it upon herself to set her sister up on a blind date, in an attempt to expand her sister's horizons. (From Ninestempest)

Prompt:  Diplomacy takes many forms... (from Siraj)

UPDATES!!1! · 5:06am

So with the new OotB chapter posted...

I have to take a week off from writing it.

I am participating in another pre-reader battle: http://www.fimfiction.net/group/967/eqd-prereader-battle-2012

Prompts are distributed, and I have to finish a fic by Friday.

What am I writing?

A sequel to Right, of course!

Stay tuned.

Making Progress! · 5:39am

Next chapter of Out of the Blue has gone through an edit run, so the rest of my changes should just be grammar or readability improvements. Expect it before Friday night.

It is Saturday night.  I arrived back home from my friend's city Friday evening, and have been recuperating ever since.

So uh,

1) That basketball game was insane.  Bulls were down 10 points in the second quarter, made it up to reach overtime, and then they finally lost by 1 point in overtime because of a technicality, 118-119.  The crowd was amazing, and I was pumped by the end.  A great first sporting event to attend.

2) SO MUCH LEAGUE OF LEGENDS because we drove from 11 pm to 5 am to get back home on Monday night, and spent the rest of the week recovering by PLAYING VIDEO GAMES

3) CHAOX'S SUB GOT A PENTA FIRST GAME?  GET #REKET

4) I've basically finished the Persona crossover outline.  Now I just need a title for it, and some holidays, and I'll basically be ready to write it.  Of course, I'm going to finish OotB first.  The next chapter will, I FUCKING PROMISE, be up in April some time.  I don't want to promise it this week because I want to actually spend a GOOD amount of time editing it, unlike Burning Bridges, so I'll probably wait a week after finishing it to post it.  I expect, from what is currently posted, to have the story finished in three chapters.  But, I'm about to incite some rage here: OotB won't finish this "arc" of epiphanies and the EoH and so on and so forth.  There is another story I'm planning after it which will close it out.  It will be a direct sequel and be a LONG ADVENTURE WOOOOOOOO.

Stupid friends... · 3:04am

So some updates.

My spring break starts next week, and I'm going up to Chicago to see the bulls game with friends to start it out!  After that, I'll probably be hanging with them for a while in their home town, which is two hours from me.

This week, for me, is also filled with tests, so I'm not going to be able to write as much.  So I know I keep talking about writing things but here is the current rundown of what is actually going on.

Pinkity is on hold indefinitely.  The fic I made a poll about I randomly lost interest in, so that is on hold for most likely forever, for better or worse.

I'm currently working on only two things. Out of the Blue, because that deserves to be finished, and after that, I will get right onto the persona crossover.

So progress is being made on the ootb update, but I'm not sure it will get finished before school knocks me out and friends come knocking.  That is all there is to say, really. Don't hold your breath, but I will be posting SOMETHING in the foreseeable future, I just can't give a precise timeline really...
