Folks, I've been so busy getting ready for the inauguration (disclosure: I work for the government, and like everyone else who works in DC, it's been hell) and I've been exhausted enough and busy that I haven't had time to write 7DSJ, much less anything else.  And now I need to get ready for Katsucon, where I volunteer.  I should have a chapter ready to go by then, but I need a break - I'm fried.

That being said, over the past few days, I've put up with a lot of shit over the phone and I rarely wax political on Fimfic.  But in the past few days, I've seen the absolute dregs of humanity over what should be a peaceful transfer of power.  Both sides are acting like political circus performers, and I won't even get into details (some of it is bad, so much so the first thing I did when I got home was dive for a stiff drink - and I almost never touch alcohol.)  I don't care what anyone's political opinions are - the moment you cross a line of decency, your beliefs are moot.

"But the Trump administration is racist!"  So entitled little shits rioting in the streets is going to make things all better?  "So why not bust all the protesters?"  Because some are doing so peacefully; i know, because of my friends are there doing so with a peaceful group.

Trump's in office for the next four years, and people had better hope he succeeds, because otherwise there will be trouble across the world.  You don't have to like him (I don't and I didn't vote for him.)  You don't have to like his policies (I don't care for many of them at all.)  But everyone best hope he succeeds (where success can be defined as the world being a better place overall, regardless of how he did it.)

Because if he fails?  Those riots I linked?  Prepare to see them everywhere.

Alaborn will probably catch that reference.

Announcement · 3:42am

I have decided to write no more stories until the year is over.  That is all.

EDIT: To soften the blow, I am providing musical accompaniment so you may all cry into your mimosas.

Planning Session · 3:18am

Shinzakura:  Hey, Flynt?

Flynt Coal: What?

Shinzakura: For the next story, I suggest we add a clue of [EB1L PL3NZ].  The audience won't expect them.

Flynt Coal: Well, looking over your [EB1L PL3NZ], I suggest you add [M0A|2 EB1L PL3NZ].  Then we can hint about that in [EB1L PL3NZ].

Shinzakura: Great idea!

Yes, you lucky folks!

For Meppy Chriswanzukah!, you guys get a solo story with whatever your favorite 7DSJ character is!  EDIT: After some consultation with the other BV writers, we thought it would be best if other characters get the nod.  Thus, we're going to disqualify both Sunset and Vinyl, as they have their own series within the BV.  The characters of Protection, however, are excluded from this disqualification.

So make your choice below, deadline is on Midnight, Friday, 23rd December EST!

So, start your votes!

Current Poll:

Sunset: 5 Disqualified

Applejack: 5 WINNER!

(Deputy) Sandalwood: 1

Vinyl Scratch: 1 Disqualified

(Vice-Principal) Luna: 4

Rainbow Dash: 1

(human) Sunset Shimmer: 1

The Triplets (Adagio, Aria and Sonata): 2

Rarity: 1

Expect a story in a couple of days!

A NEW CHAPTER IS OUT!  (mentioning it because it was accidentally published for a second last week and Fimfic doesn't like new announcements.)

I'm sure a few of you will have questions!

Yo all my fellow vets, thanks for serving.  We did what many couldn't or wouldn't.  Be proud and give yourselves a hand.
