    State of Address

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    It's incredible to think that it's been ten years since I joined this site. Yes, as of today I have been writing here for a whole decade.

    "My Little World" To Be Continued

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    I know it's been a while, but while I had some time I figured to let you all be aware of what's going on.

    Notes from Unfinished Stories and Opportunity

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    I know I have been quiet for the past several months, but in case you didn't know, allow me to explain.

    I've decided that since I have twelve stories that are still unfinished, I'm going to re-read them to see how to plan them out. And while I was reading and making notes, I've come to a realization. Something to give you, the reader, a unique opportunity.

    Plans Going Forward

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Before anyone out there get any ideas that, "Hey, Cracked, I have an idea for a story, do you take up requests?" Or if any of you beg for a sequel from any of the more recent stories, I'm gonna have to do something that I never thought I would say here.

    No.

Plans Going Forward · 1:38am February 1st

Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

Before anyone out there get any ideas that, "Hey, Cracked, I have an idea for a story, do you take up requests?" Or if any of you beg for a sequel from any of the more recent stories, I'm gonna have to do something that I never thought I would say here.

No.

And why is that? Not only am I committed to writing a Helluva Boss fanfic that I'm invested in, but I have realized something important. Namely, out of the 109 current stories on this site, twelve of them are currently unfinished. Most of which have been left untouched for years now.

This list includes the following:

  • I Love You, Shining Armor
  • Inverno - The Music Catcher
  • Inverno's Opus in A Minor
  • Hoity: The Untold Story
  • The Forgotten Melodies of Jozèf Boulogne
  • My Little World
  • The Honeymoon
  • Seven Self-Portraits
  • The Lioness and the Unicorn
  • Paper Romance
  • Friends and Fairy Tales

This isn't just unfair to my fellow readers, it's unacceptable that I had clearly broken a promise to myself that I would always finish every story I've written. All these stories deserve to be told, and to be told to the end.

So, from here on out, here is my plan for what I'm gonna do.

Firstly, if anyone asks me if they could make a request, or exchange an idea for a new story - I have to put my foot down and decline it. Because of that I simply have way too many stories that demand my attention. After all, they are way overdue.

Secondly, for me to make sure that these stories are consistent, I'll have to reread these stories to determine if some of them should be rewritten, start from scratch, or plan out how they will go. This will mean that it may take a while for me to start writing again because simply, I forgot what happened in these stories.

Thirdly, from here on out, if I were to post any stories in the near future, it would most likely be one-shots.

Fourthly, I ask of you, the reader for your patience. You will see new chapters from these stories again, but I on my end will need time.

I hope you the reader would understand.

Your fellow writer,

- CrackedInkWell.

Of course most of us will understand, and is nice that you're also writing for Helluva. If someone gets mad at your choice, well; "Christ on a stick, I guess there is a god" *Bang* "AAAAUGH!!"

Thank you kindly, and in case anyone is wondering, I'll leave the links for the story that I and TalosLives are working on.

The Pilot

The Series

You may start editing the chapters in Inverno’s Opus in A Minor to make it fit.

Wait a minute, you're working with TALOSLIVES?!! Amazing!!

I support this. I personally love the 'I love you, Shining Armor' fic

Fortunately, the remaining chapters of that story are getting pretty close to being done. So by then, I'll be down to eleven.

Where these unfinished stories are concerned, take your time. We've waited this long, we can wait a bit longer. I certainly will be

Good luck to you in your endeavors, Maestro!

No problem dude/dudett finish whatever works that you feel the need to. Just don't rush yourself into burning out make sure to work with whatever pace is most comfortable for you.

Finishing stories is awesome. Take all the time you need.
