After resting my mind and imagination, I got plenty of ideas for other stories. However, the current ones will have to wait. I know this'll anger those who were eagerly awaiting updates for Steamlord or Pied Piper, but I ran out of ideas for them. So while those build up (and they have) to a breaking point, I'm going to write another story to get back to how I was writing before. So think of this as a way to avoid "ruining" the current ones because I need to catch up to them again. Once again, I sorry. Bring great shame to famiry. Dishonorabru dispray.
I'm reviving my story planning blog · 8:56pm
It's still the same one because I won't bother with clicky-pointy-gluey things. Oh, and I still am not going to publish a chapter anytime soon. I've adaptd to the university environnement am currently analyzing the personalities and working habits of the teachers. The reason is in red now. There are some obsolete zones that I need to update, and I have two ideas I need to post on the blog.
Here it is. Since I'm reviving it, why not post what kind of story you want or what ideas you might have that you can't use(yet) in its comment sections?
Alexstraza, the Nicholas Cage obssessed, EqD pre-reader went and made a site that functions like it, but without the snooty, excessive personal tastes from the pre-readers that prevent any good story from passing through. Yada yada, here's Canterlot's Finest.
You can submit your stories here and they're most likely going to get onto it. It's up to YOU to spread the word and to dig EqD's grave a few eight-hundred feet below the surface.
They might still get updated (I'm not abandoning anything) but I've been having difficulties in university that has been bringing my blood-spilling envies out again. Well, there's that, and there's also the fact that I'm writing a book (At 11k words so far. I need 25k minimum. I've done that here plenty of times, but I'm aiming for 55k, although I need to get around 350 pages, so I'm going J.R.R TOLKIEN STYLE AND GOING 100k!), a certain book not related to ponies that I actually wanted to write here involving Chrysalis.
Updates will be slow now · 3:15pm
Rage mode: Activated · 9:23am
I've grown incessantly fatigued of certain things, to the point where I need to vent my rage. There are things that can be justly recognized in the fandom, and that only creates jealousy in me, although I rightly congratulate those that bevome "famous" within the fandom. However, there are other things that annoy me tremendously, like featured stories or authors that get known here because they only write porn. I mean, seriously.
When you see stories like this, or this (I know you're not going to finish it, Bob. Sorry, but it's true. Y U NO FINISH STORIES?), or this, you can fully understand why people liked the concept, favorited, commented, then boosted the story up to the top.
But when I see stupid shit like this which just uses a concept beat so badly it become petroleum (A certain story with Big Mac used this first, then another with Mac, then several thousand stories like it were cast out of the entrails of Gaia herself), or this which is only about enormous boobs, it makes me wonder why many of us even try hard to give life and creativity in our stories when they're taken away by stories featured because of some stupid concept (Twilight with a bananna. No. Seriously. There are stories like this which are rarely fun and I've read them to be sure), it both angers me and makes me yell: "What?!" Heck, My "A shooting nightmare" story was an overused concept that I just wanted to write for fun, and it got super-featured across several sites. I wasn't even expecting that to happen to that story, so it caught me off guard and confused me greatly.
Heck, even I've become 'forgotten'. I've grown so accustomed to it, that I know precisely who is going to favorite my stories. I'm not being an ingrate.. I'm not insulting those who like my stories or write the ones above. I'm not doing that in any way. I thank those who like and favorite my stories and am glad that you liked them. It's simply how such absurd concepts become appreciated while other creative ones, like this, are ignored. I'm just irritated when nothing changes for too long, and that has happened with me. I hate a lack of change. I need new things to help me up, and I'm just not getting that anymore.
So I ask to you all, who are varied and have many different tastes, ranging from Slice of life to...*vomits*, clop, what would spark your interests to their full extents, and what makes you like stories about someone folding a napkin?
(I'm also watching my stalkers.[url=www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgo5WUJm_6Y#t=0m4s] I'M ON TO YOU TWILIGHTMOON AND RAINBOWBOB![/url])
In the mean time, I'm going to log out and relax, meditate, and head shot some people in my vidya games while I calm down from this steam release.
While I work on the story of Equinox, I'll be working on Steamlord as well. Equinox will be a side project alongside Steamlord, which will take the main place in my updates.
Why am I doing this? Because Equinox basically has its own story set in stone and, so far, I haven't gotten ideas for an original story for it yet. Basically, I'm doing character profiles and giving them much needed backstories. This makes it simpler to write about them, which makes it "faster" to do. As I write this, I'm currently writing an Equinox chapter right now and that of the next Steamlord.
Want some insight as to what I'm going to do after "A heart to thou"? It should be split into a series like FMTM, which everyone liked, and this one will have something everyone can undeniably agree that they love. 1v1v1 with Equestria obviously in the fray. Who are the other two?(These are examples. No humies)
In celebration of the Equinox Kingdom doing that with inspiring me to do a new fanfic, who wants their OC or a random pony of the show to be Equinoxed (The mane six, CMC, the alicorns, and Sombra have already been done. Shining Armor, Cadence, Derpy, the crystal ponies, and Sombra done by Epic Brony 4 Life and I)? You already have an idea? Go ahead and place it at the bottom. There are no rules here. I just want to have fun and read more things while I'm at it! I'll place your stuff here.
Basically, the Equinox Kingdom is a twisted, dark version of Equestria, where the characters are horrid variants of their originals. They aren't "opposites", though. They can have any new appearance. The ponies are all affected by a black smog coming from Queen Blackhole (Princess Celestia) which mutates ponies into the horrid abominations. Here are examples. The corruption doesn't change somepony's personnality, but rather, it amplifies them to extremes, such as Twilight no longer having moral restrictions in her magical experiments or Fluttershy being obsessed with animals to the point of wanting to become one.
Here's a simple list of things to put if you want:
Physical appearance (cuitre mark, colors, ect):
Original OC's appearance:
Original oc:cutting edge
Appearance: white, no mane or tail, always wears black cloak, dark red eyes.
Back story: an assasin Who kills those who do evil his equinox version attacks or kills anyone that annoys him
Originally appeared: metal gear solid story I can't remember the name of.
Name: Selena Soulflare
Original OC: Vanity
Physical appearance: Same as Rarity's, save for black mane, tail, and black diamond cutie mark
Backstory: Arrested multiple times for theft. Made a deal with a shadow demon, and is now a practicioner of shadow magic. Recently turned into a vampony
Relations: None, cause she eats them
Original appearance: Twins! blog
I'm leaving the site....
But seriously, this is very important. Unfortunately for you guys waiting for Steamlord and "a heart to thou", I'll have to postpone those, because I'm going to create a story with characters from the Equinox Kingdom.
(The Equinox kingdom is from Riygan)
That guy hasn't been on for 24 weeks, so I can't talk to him about the universe, so I can only base myself off of the brief character descriptions he's given with the drawings. The Equinox Kingdom is a dark counterpart to Equestria, where Applejack has been revived as a zombie and Fluttershy has become symbiotically fused to a variant of parasprite. You think this is cute? Here's Spiderlock:
And here's something I found that seems to fit Equinox very well. Better suggestions are appreciated that isn't "music box" music.
Now, obviously, the story. I don't know what to say. I'm busy meshing up as much as I can of their stories:
Braeburn (I DON4T UNDERSTAND SPANISH! HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGH!)
Applejack (You know you'd love to lick her maggots. :D)
Silly me. I forgot Lyra and Bon-Bon.
(These ones are my creation)
Princess Cadance = Princess Lolung (or Lovelust). Her hooves have turned into curved hook-bones permanently dripping with the blood coming from the torn tendrils of her "ankles". He heart is outside of her body and pulsates irregularly. Her mane and tail have veins that intertwine with the fur and are fully functional, but tear out of small holes in her rear. Her eyes, now black, have pupils that are irregular in size but red, kinda looking like shriveled grapes, but not yet raisins. Her coat is a very dark pink, and her mane and tail have the color of blood plasma. Her mouth is also half-torn, revealing sharded blood-clots to be her new teeth. (sharded blood-clots meaning they're sharp, like shark teeth).
Princess Lolung: After Queen Blackhole spread her miasma, Lolung has become a dark individual who frequently looks for ponies and other creatures in order to eat their hearts. Sometimes, she'll solve a love conflict, but it usually involves permanent solutions, such as what she did with Bon-Bon and Lyra. She rules the Carbon Kingdom, where all the ponies there have pretty much become deranged versions of crystal ponies, hanging corpses everywher as decorations and going into cannibalism or other things that sate their "love" and desires.
Shining Armor= Tarnished Shield
His coat is of a faint gray, but he has rust marks everywhere, and his tail is so "rusted" that the fur doesn't even move, and the bone can be seen protruding from the end. His eyes have decayed to the point where he no longer has them, and, instead, posesses Coagulated blood in his eyes sockets. His mouth is also pretty much rusted to death as well.
He is the trusted companion if Princess Lolung and frequently hunts for her "food" while still loving her greatly and deeply. They both frequently play with the hearts of their captured ponies before Lolung eats them, laughing and smiling all the way. Isn't that cute?
As Zecora is a master of the more unnknown, somewhat "darker" in some regards, magic, Zala is purely into voodoo magic, and her's works. This Zecora's mane and tail are made out of wood, and her lower jaw is like hat of a puppet's. Strings coming from the nerves in her legs and neck all pull out to become a single nerve cluster in her back which takes the shape of a puppet handle. Her mane and tail look like they were painted with crayons, though.
She frequently gets visitors who want somepony to be punished, but they have to strike a deal first. If the deal is not accomplished, then they are taken by Zala and turned into fleshy puppets with a similar appearance to her's. The only difference is that they cannot move. No. They line her walls and their eyes bulge out with pain and panic as they look around the room, screaming with a muffled cry. She has many of them, and theey will never die as the zebra mixes up her potions in the smothered, greenish-black cauldron at the center of her dark abode.
Her powers come from spirits inhabiting her body and has full access to their powers as long as the needs are met. Luckily, the deals she makes are enough to serve these purposes, but bad things arise when even one of the ponies fulfills their end of the deal.
Derpy Hooves= Dharma
Covered in a silver armor fused to her skin, Dharma can only remove the hoof plates and facial mask, showing her to be more metal than pony. Tufts of fur pass through the armor, as does blood. She has been fused to this armor made from pure silver as she has the ability to destabilize objects when she touches them with any part of her body. Sometimes they explode, sometimes they melt in a pile of gooey flesh and blood. DON'T touch her.
King Sombra=Crimsear (His backstory is from Epic Brony for Life)
His eyes have a burning outline. His mane and tail are the same, but made of ash, and when he opens his mouth, it's like brimstone. A bright, burning light from the back of his throat while little explosions and expulsions of rock and ash are cast from his mouth. His body has this as well, with little orangy cracks seen here and there.
Although his body has been transformed and his mind twist to new lows, Crimsear is still obsessed with the power the crystals in the Crystal Empire. However, in addition to transforming all the crystal ponies to carbon ponies, Queen Blackhole's miasma also turned all the crystals into twisted spires of carbon/coal. Seeking to reverse the miasma's effect, Crimsear spends every waking moment prowling the streets of the Carbon Kingdom (Equinox version of Crystal Empire), capturing any carbon ponies unfortunate enough to cross his path. Back at his hidden lair below the Carbon Citadel (Equinox version of Crystal Castle), the screams of hundreds of captured carbons ponies can be heard as Crimsear seals them away, locking them in hanging cages suspended over a roaring flame. For countless hours they are left to burn, and then, be they dead or alive, Crimsear tosses them into a near bottomless pit, in the hopes that the cumulative heat and pressure will give birth to the crystals he so desperately craves.
If ANY of you knew him before, then do you know of any story elements Riygan omitted? I want to make this as accurate as possible to his ideas.
The story itself will base itself off the Equinox-Gorgony war, then branch off from there, telling of the origin of the Equinox-6 and how they became as they are, then I'll go to the plot developpment.
And yes, Samaru. Feel the wrath of the notifications. :)
