Howdy, all. I just published a new story, Life in the Wasteland. I wrote it for Obselescence's The More Most Dangerous Game Contest, which it seems to have done pretty well in. (Which might mean that one of my stories will have an actual cover art in the future! Le gasp!) (I know what you're thinking: "But Norse, using screencaps of G1 MLP as cover images is part of your roguish charm! I know, it's true. I might have to grow a goatee to compensate for the loss.)

At any rate, if your portion of the Venn diagram isn't where "Equestria Daily" and "Follower of NorsePony" overlap, then you haven't seen this story yet. So enjoy! I'll be posting the rest of the chapters over the next few days, so it will be tagged complete pretty soon.

This was exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much! I can see what you mean and after writing out a brief plan of how the next 30 or so chapters were going to go then looking at this I can see that this prologue I have written is not needed.

This shouldn't be in the prologue at all, because this is just you telling-not-showing the first chapter or two of the story. It would make sense if this were a sequel story and the prologue was meant to catch the reader up on what happened in the earlier stories, but in a first story this just seems massively lazy.
Okay, I will admit to being lazy with this. I understand what you mean by telling-not-showing here and I think that I will keep the prologue but I won't end up using it in the actual story. Thanks for really explaining this for me. (Sorry but the thread was locked and I couldn't reply in the normal way. Again, thanks for the help!)

It really is.  12 years after moving halfway across the country from my home town, and 7 after making friends with some people, I found out that those people and I had not only grown up in the same town, but had been friends with the same people at school.  The only reason I didn't know this was that I'd met our mutual friends about a year after those people had moved away.

Freaky...  :rainbowderp:
