How To Improve Your Story

Story Collections

I have a handful of stand-alone stories that are either set in the same continuity as each other or thematically related in some way.  Here are the collections:

Twilight Holmes

These stories are set in the Twilight Holmes continuity.  Here they are in chronological order:

     It's Elementary, My Dear Rainbow

     Twilight Holmes: Sabotage After Sunset

     Salting Snails

Heat Trilogy

A trilogy of saucy tales covering the starts of three heated relationships within the mane six.

     Heat of the Moment (Twilight and Rainbow Dash)

     Finding Her Smile (Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy)

     pending (Applejack and Rarity)

Variety is the Spice of Life Challenge

A shipping challenge of epic proportions, which I am going to play in hard-mode: all fifteen prompts, all fifteen ships.

     TwiDash: Little Wonders (Prompt: A Kiss)

     AppleDash: The Great Cider Heist (Prompt: An Anniversary)

     RariDash: (Prompt: A Gift)

     FlutterDash: Hummingbird Heartbeat (Prompt: An Apology)

     TwiJack: (Prompt: An Illness)






     ApplePie: (Prompt: A Reunion)


     RariPie: (Prompt: A Date)


Variety is the Spice of Life Challenge Extra Spicy Edition

Because I'm crazy, I'm playing on hard-mode twice.  The Extra Spicy Edition is the challenge again, only for these the stories are erotica.  Fifteen prompts, fifteen pairings, fifteen stories filled with ponisex.



     RariDash: Tap That (Prompt: A Proposal)



     TwiJack: Home Grown (Prompt: A Birth)




     RariJack: Unnamed Heat Trilogy Conclusion (Prompt: A Wedding)





     FlutterPie: Finding Her Smile (Prompt: A Date)

(Warning in advance: this is long, rambling, somewhat personal confessional followed by incomplete and probably useless advice—ie a typical bats blog)

Hey everyone!  Been a while since I’ve blogged, or…done…much of anything on fimfic.

I am sorry about that, because there’s a tremendous amount of what comes along with being involved on this site that I truly miss, but I rather hate showing up here empty-handed and boring, and quite frankly I’ve been empty-handed and boring for a very long time now.  Not just with pone, but in general as I’ve sorta mucked about being all unproductive and miserable for months, struggling to find a desire to just get the hell on with it in some capacity.

This aimless wandering has been punctuated at points in the past with periods of particularly potent productivity (whee, alliteration is fun), but if I had to describe the last year or so of my life as a writer, I’d say I’ve been a fish pulled out of the water and thrown in some particularly sharp grass.  Lots of flapping and gasping, with a few accusatory eyes cast around at the fisherman for being such an unrelenting douchebag.  Of course, that fisherman is me, and the cause of this slow suffocation rests on my shoulders.

Hi, my name is bats, and I am a procrastinator.

Jeeze, thanks, that's a really nice thing to say.


#282 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

Wow! I just realized that three of the best stories I've read recently were written by you.  I guess that officially makes you my favorite author here! :twilightsmile:

#280 · 8w, 3d ago · · ·

Well It might be a while before I publish my first one on here (it's a long one) but eventually I will. Heads up it's an TwiOC ship but there is a ton more to it. Bats your story and how well it was written kind of inspired me to actually write it down, Though it honestly wont be out for months since I don't like publishing incomplete stories. At this point though the story in my head seems to be about as long as War and Peace.

#279 · 15w, 4d ago · · ·


Well, I'm still around and haven't strictly 'fallen away' from the fandom or ponies in general.  It has indeed been a long while since I've written anything for the site, though.
