A quick update/explanation · 5:45pm
Those of you that follow of me will have noted three new stories that popped up on my blog when I should really be working on Gilda’s Sore Throat. Thick as Thieves, Ah. Don't. Like. Mornin's., and The Cutie Mark Crusaders Make Good With Words and Prose and Stuff.
These are all old stories that I wrote not long after I joined the fandom, and I’ve stuck them up as curios more than anything else.
Thick as Thieves: While it kind of works as a one shot, there’s enough room for character exploration that it could work well being expanded out, and I’ve had a heck of a lot of ideas for moving the story onwards but I just couldn’t work out how to fit them in... and I’ve still to go back and clean up a few sections, mainly some tonal stuff like the random “do-ho-ho Celestia has adult toys” or being left with the impression that Canterlot has just been turned into a bubbling crater of molten rock when it hasn’t, and everyone’s fine.
Ah. Don't. Like. Mornin's.: This was an experiment with first person perspective Applejack, with the aim of leading into Flutter/Jack shipping at some point. While it’s okay to read, it’s a bit boring as nothing really happens so far, but I think I’ll leave it as a one-shot for now.
The Cutie Mark Crusaders Make Good With Words and Prose and Stuff: A one shot for the MLP
Writers Training Ground on deviant art. It was fun to do, but feels a little forced... especially towards the end.
Oh well, back to staring blankly at Gilda’s Sore Throat and pretending to write/edit the chapters!
