So this has been a long time coming, but I gotta say it: I'm most likely done writing here.

Now, this has nothing to do with not liking MLP anymore or that kind of thing--I still very much like the show; in fact, I absolutely loved the S4 finale, and I can't wait for S5 to start whenever that rolls around. The truth of the matter is that I've become a very different person since I started this account here. I've graduated high school and completed my first year of college, and I've also recently picked up two separate part time jobs for the summer while at the same time trying to stay in shape for swimming (gotta stay true to my username, right?). With all of this stuff happening, I just haven't had the time or motivation to write, as I've been spending my free time building relationships at college and attempting to stay in touch with everyone back home. Writing just isn't a priority anymore--I hope that makes sense.

Before I close, there's a few people I'd like to thank, whether they're going to actually read this or not.

ChaoticHarmony, for being the first person to convince me that I might actually be kind of good at this kind of stuff, and for always providing thoughts on my writing.

DPV111, for helping me become a much better writer. Seriously man, if I ever pick up the pen again, I'll always keep your advice in mind. You're one of the best readers I've ever known, and I really appreciate all the help you've given to me.

Kits, for basically being my inspiration. I know you're not really on the site anymore, but you were always one of my favorite authors.

Ponky, basically for being just super chill as well as an excellent writer. I hope your mission is going great!

The Fimfic staff, for providing great service on the site.

And of course, all of you guys reading this, for all the comments, views, faves, and whatever else you've given my work. I always loved hearing what you guys thought of my stories, and I never would have made it this far without you!

And who knows--maybe sometime in the future, if I feel that same spark of inspiration that I felt when I first created this account, I'll be back. But for now, I'm gonna clock out. I'll still be online from time to time if you guys ever want to chat about the show, my stories, or writing in general. I want to thank you all again for an amazing couple years, and just know that I love all you guys. Really, I do. I am so happy that I was able to write for you all as long as I did.

This is theswimminbrony, signing off again.

It has TRULY been a pleasure.

>>1364619 hey, thanks a bunch! I really do appreciate it.

Hey there! I know you aren't really around anymore, but I just wanted to say I'm a big fan of TTWLB. I've read a lot of fanfictions but it still holds the number 1 spot on my favorites list.

And if you ever do return and resume writing, perhaps a Free! MLP crossover? :rainbowlaugh: You ARE theswimmingbrony, after all. :raritywink:

Berating me for my inactivity isn't going to help the writing process whatsoever

Well I gotta do something from my end, you silly Americans and your odd school years....

>>901982 Twilight looked at the letter that sat in her hooves, her eye twitching involuntarily.

"Uh, Twi?" Spike inquired. "Something the matter?"

"No, I'll be fine, Spike," Twilight responded. "Let's just say today has been a "bloddy" nightmare."

"I don't quite follow."

"Then consider yourself lucky."

There, that should tide you over.

For fudge sakes, I've had finals and the holidays are just WRAPPING up (:facehoof:). Patience is a virtue. A stinky stupid virtue, but it is one nonetheless. Berating me for my inactivity isn't going to help the writing process whatsoever.
