    Full Swing: Summer of Pony

    I'm very proud to announce that Driving Her Batty now has a custom-made cover by the talented Welost, with the last two chapters coming out by mid-June. I've kept up with constant story updates as I set out to do, and plan on doing so for the rest of the summer 🌞

    Expect new stories with cover art from Uuforya as well as Pridark over the next several months!

    Looking for Feedback (G5 Fanfics)

    I've been mulling over this for a while, ever since the ending of Make Your Mark. I want to make G5 fanfics that have only the movie and MYM as canon, not TYT. As I refuse to watch TYT on principle of it being too low-effort to be a main series, this is how my new G5 fics would be going forward.

    Camp NaNoWriMo Update

    So while I did get sick over the past few days, I'm very happy and relieved to announce that I've started and still intend on finishing +30K for commissions as my Camp NaNoWriMo project. The story that I said I'd publish before the end of March wasn't published because the very talented artist is still working on the cover art, but once they are done, you all will be seeing at least

    March/April Update: Return to Pony

    Yo yo yo, it's been a while since I've done one of these posts and while I've been updating stories every couple weeks at least, it's still not as much as I would like. I had huge burnout as well as being sick towards the end of last year, as well as personal responsibilities that I've been taking care of. And of course, I've recently come to find how hard it has been that I've let both matters

    Slower Commission Times (Dying Laptop)

    Hello, as some of you might’ve noticed, I've had to push back on deadlines and start times for my commissions. While a lot of this is because of my other new job and personal responsibilities, it's also because of a more recent and pressing issue that has only gotten worse as time goes on: my ol' laptop, that has been with me since my high school graduation, has been glitching and breaking down

Looking for Feedback (G5 Fanfics) · 6:50am May 19th

I've been mulling over this for a while, ever since the ending of Make Your Mark. I want to make G5 fanfics that have only the movie and MYM as canon, not TYT. As I refuse to watch TYT on principle of it being too low-effort to be a main series, this is how my new G5 fics would be going forward.

The ultimate question is, do movie/MYM G5 fanfics that are sequels erasing TYT events as canon interest any of you? Are there other people that would prefer to read more developed stories of what our G5 cast could be up to? Or even fanfic remakes of G5? I would absolutely love to hear feedback on what you guys think, as I've been contemplating this for a while.

I think there's so much room to tell stories in G5 post mym. The show writers basically had to cannibalize their run time in order to tell Misty's story properly (which I'm grateful for because I love her so much) but that left pretty much every other character with minimal room for their own character arcs.

Sunny not being the main character means her ascension into an alicorn was never really explored or what she would even do after she achieved her dream. Zipp still has her own wants and dreams that completely clash with her royal obligations. Pipp, I feel, still feels snubbed by her sister. Izzy probably has a lot of emotional baggage after all the loneliness she went through that hasn't been addressed. What does Misty do after finally escaping her emotionally abusive relationship? (TYT actually has her studying magic, which is so cool, but what does she want to do with that?). Hitch has a kid and all the wild drama it takes in raising one.

(Also, I'm still mad that "Secrets of Starlight" made a big deal of introducing a new character who wanted to join the mane cast and see the world only for him to completely disappear in TYT. I miss Comet so much.)

I'm really glad there's another person who has noticed this exact problem, and that was one of the series ideas I was considering exploring: Make Your Mark stories to address the rest of the Mane 6 and tie loose ends in the way I would have wanted.

Also Comet is a cutie, I intended on writing a Izzy X Comet adult romance at some point.

By all means! Whatever works best for you, really.

G5 stuffs are always good for me, I personally think there are a lot of good in TYT especially with a few great writers in the team like Ryan Denham
If you're interested, there is a 22 minutes TYT episode called The Blockywocky which deals with Izzy's creative block

I'm really happy you can find something enjoyable in TYT, and thank you for your input. It is simply not for me personally.

Am fine with that, especially cuz some of the episodes in TYT are retelling of MYM stuffs so you haven't been missing much
