As of today, I have decided to cease any and all work on any of my pony fics. Questions answered below:
Several reasons. I'm back in nursing school, struggling to figure out what I want to do with my life, I'm on the verge of moving (which is just next week), and there's a few other things. The biggest one, however, is this fandom and this site. This fandom is filled with some of the most ungrateful, misogynistic, and self-centered people I have ever encountered, and the fact that it continues (and will do so for quite a while) is equal parts sickening and depressing. Moreso, writing for the pony fandom is no longer enjoyable -- I can work on something, post it here, and it is instead drowned out by a plethora of poorly-written ship fics and crossovers, none of which have even the slightest bit of originality to them. The userbase on this site is immensely frustrating, tends to have very poor tastes in literature, and few of them have any understanding of storytelling mechanics. Unless something is explicitly explained to them, they simply won't get it, and having to explain myself repeatedly is aggravating.
You don't really mean that, do you?
I do. Every word of it. Don't get me wrong, I've made some amazing friends through the pony fandom, but by and large, it's filled with individuals I want nothing to do with. I'm done contributing when I'm not getting any satisfaction out of it. I'll still watch the show, still moderate the chatroom, and I'll still attend conventions (mostly because friends are vending and I'm there to support them), but no more writing. I have neither the time nor the energy for it.
But I really liked your stories! Will you ever finish some of them?
Maybe. Maybe not. That's for me to decide, and constantly harassing and begging me to come back will very likely do the opposite. Please respect my decision.
Where will you be at?
Around. I still mod the chatroom, and all my contact info is still in my bio.
None of my fics will be deleted, including those that are incomplete.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
