    Holidays, etc.

    Been a while, hasn't it? Apparently the holidays happened or something, I wasn't really paying attention, and now we're here.

    Happy Halloween!

    So that wonderful time of year has come around again. Children dressed as ghosts and witches wander aimlessly about neighborhoods after dark in hungry packs, accosting house after house in the ravenous pursuit of sugary confections. Yes, it's Halloween time again. Or... maybe just another Monday, depending on how lax the parenting is in your neighborhood.

    Season 6 Ep25-26: Thoughts, Spoilers, Etc.

    So... That happened. A lot of the world building with the changelings I liked. Still processing how I feel about the reformed changeling appearance (Those antler/pincer horns could be badass). And that hive! Gah, so many ideas...

    BABScon 2016! (The sequel)

    Another year, another con under the belt. So, like... two. And a half... Anyway! I had a blast this year, and enjoyed meeting those of you I could. Now, with depleted bank accounts, pockets full of shwag and a sparkle of glee in my eye... It's back for the final week of the college semester. The soul-crushing, stress-inducing, dream-killing final week. Turns out taking the weekend off on finals

    BABScon 2016!

    Just a short one today. As some of you may know, tomorrow is Babscon, and if you've been keeping up with these blogs (for some reason), you might know that I'll be there, too. And if you're going to be there, come on over and say hi! I don't bite (that costs extra).

I Lied · 4:52pm Jan 23rd, 2013

So, I wasn't going to do anything today except reply to some comments and lurk in the background today.
That was before I went to bed last night. And forgot to take my mother trucking sleep medication. Just so all of you know, Chronic Insomnia is a BIIIIIIITCH.
Funnily enough, the resulting pressure headache and sleep deprivation put my head exactly where it needs to write, which I tried and failed to do last night.
So basically...

Chapter 4 incoming.

Hooray for insomnia if it results in another excellent chapter!

Ouch. But I guess all great authors had their mountains to climb. I hope your next few nights are much more pleasant, though!

743033 I'd like to think so, but I could also be full of it. It's about halfway done right now, and took about 2-3 hours to get going to this point. So I should have it out by the end of the day, just to give myself some wiggle room and hopefully NOT fudge this up.
Funnily enough, I started writing after waking from a sleep-deprived hallucination of some sort, in which I was composing a letter written by my story's Applejack to Princess Celestia on top of zombie-brainstorming a few interesting things for the future. I wrote it, saved it, and will likely throw it in on the last chapter, way down the road.
Now, if you'll excuse me, Imma go get some coffee. Coffee sounds good... :pinkiesick:

743041 Oh, I foresee a hard nap in my destiny, let me tell you.


I'm in the opposite situation - my medication often gives me bouts of insomnia. But I know that terrible feeling of laying in bed for hours before looking at the clock and seeing it read 4:00 am, and still not feeling tired. Regardless, though, I am looking forward to your next chapter. Your story is quite interesting, and is my favorite "pony is a changeling" story out there. You've got interesting characters, a wonderful take on the situation, and - most importantly - the best choice I can think of in having one of the mane six be a changeling. Having someone as loving, loyal, stubborn, and clear-minded as Applejack be a changeling is a sublime choice for characterization. If your future chapters are as fine as the first few, I forsee this story becoming truly epic, in both scope and recognition.

As a member of the insomnia club I can sympathize. Also, best time to write is at 1am, everypony knows that! :pinkiehappy: :trollestia:

Lol im sorry about your chronic insomnia though:fluttercry:

743167 That's my usual time, actually. Get done anywhere from 2-3AM.
But starting up at FIVE?! That's a bit much, even for me.
I don't want to say "but at least I don't feel too bad yet", because Murphy has a terrible habit of hanging off of my every freaking word sometimes.

743050 Interesting... :moustache::derpyderp1:
