Summer Wrap Up · 10:40pm
I had plans for this summer. And as expected, I haven't managed to do all the planned things.
So, what's the field report? Here go the planned things:
— a comedy one-shot about Twilight panicking for no reason, titled “Pinkie Pie Dyes” — almost done, but needs a lot of editing so it won't suck. Comedy one-shots are hit-or-miss.
— a serious Derpy×Vinyl shipfic from Octavia's point of view, titled “Between The Three Of Us” — less than 25% done. It's going to be pretty long, but at least I have an editor for this one. I won't publish it here before hitting 40% mark.
— a comedy about Pinkie's unrequited crush on Rarity — not even started.
— a short slice-of-life fic about Winona and CMC — not even started.
Oh boy, it looks like I've accomplished next to nothing.
Oh wait, there's other stuff:
— It probably shouldn't count, but during summer, I wrote two chapters of “Of Robots And Ponies”. More Whooves running around, but I think about wrapping up Whooves arc and starting Roseluck arc. I also managed to get the story so complicated that I needed to write down a timeline... and timelines barely work with stories with time travel. Apart from that, I need to write down who knows what, who accused whom of what and all that stuff, because I'm getting lost. I also know how I'll end the story (not sure in how many chapters though): Apple Bloom'll say: “Consarn it, still no cutie mark!” The next chapter is a work in progress and it's sponsored by this picture.
— A sudden spark of inspiration allowed me to write “Being His Imaginary Fluttershy”. For some reason, it's my highest rated story, despite being less popular than “Robots”. I'm considering a sequel titled “Being His Imaginary Applejack”, but I need to think more about it.
— There's that half-written yet untitled story, which I started writing as a birthday present for a friend and I still haven't finished. Mainly because I can't write Pinkie, dammit!
— There's that silly one-shot I sent to a friend: “Twilight Sparkle And A Cucumber”. I'll publish it here as soon as I hear from him back. It needs only little editing.
— There's that new story I'm writing now, a classical comedy crackshipfic featuring Rainbow Dash, who as always falls in love with... well, the working title of the story is “Rainbow Dash Falls In Love With Celestia's Horn”, guess who's Dashie's sweetheart in that. And guess how it involves Bon-Bon.
— And finally, I have at least three more ideas:
× cute&nice&fluffy Twilight×Fluttershy shipfic with a bit of comedy;
× a murder mystery (in which Rarity dies, for no reason, and a lot of weird stuff happens afterwards);
× and a philosophical mystery (woohoo! a new made-up genre!) about... well, if you've read Anathem, that would be similar. I plan some government conspiracies, serious (Celestia level of serious) Pinkie, Luna banished from Canterlot, Twilight being under intelligence agency's surveillance, and more.
But guessing from my record, I won't write them all. The murder mystery looks like it has no chances to ever show up, the other two – I don't know.
So, that's all, folks. I hope I'll be able to provide you with more mediocre fanfiction in the future.
Brace yourself, three comedy one-shots are coming.
