    Chapter 30? This Month! Fanart? Right Now!

    The draft is currently 12k words, and growing. Also, I've got some fanart to share! These are all drawn by Sheol, who is very cool and great. Note that though I love all these interpretations, they aren't necessarily strictly canon! I like to go light on descriptions specifically so that everyone can imagine their own version of the world, so this is

    On Respect, Rules, and Enforcement

    So here I am, another chapter drafted (9.7k words), having just sent it off to the editors after staying up through all the night and all the dawn, with your "regular" heads-up announcement that I hope to have it out on Friday.

    Chapter 24, New Audiobook!, and CK3

    Hello, again! If any of you have been concerned for me since my last blog, apologies, but I really don't like posting blogs when I don't have actual content on hand. Everything's fine—though it would have been very funny if I was one of the four total deaths from Hurricane Sally—aside from me now having to walk my dog more because the fence in the back is gone.

Important Question/News · 2:08am Mar 5th, 2013

Greetings, readers! And anyone who may be reading this but for some reason is not a reader.
For some reason.

Anyways, I finally managed to get Chapter 13 out. Yay! Now, for the real reason I summoned you here today/night.

Omega is a long fic. I estimate that I'm about 1/6th of the way through, and it's already at 70k words. Woah. Anyways, I've become a much better writer since I first wrote those first three chapters and got them featured on EqD, and it shows. I've started considering aspects that never even crossed my mind when I wrote my earlier chapters, and I've begun wishing that I had written things with a more stream-of-consciousness style.

To summarize, the fic needs to be rewritten.

You see, things don't really take off till Chapter 4. I worry that I may be turning off new readers with my sub-par initial three chapters. And I really want to rewrite them better. I want to rewrite the whole fic, with a more personal narrative. I want to make things stream-of-consciousness. And I want to change a few small plot points.

What does this mean to you?

It means that the fic, in terms of continuation, will be going on a brief hiatus while I rewrite the 70k words which comprise it. No need to be upset, it should only last a couple of months, at most. As for the question: if you guys wish, I will continue writing new chapters (at a slower pace) in a form consistent to how the fic is now. I wouldn't want to abandon you guys, after all.

Anyways, the fic will seem slow for awhile, but rest assured I'm writing. I'm not just going to publish the rewrites one at a time (it would be jarring for anyone who's in the process of reading, and wierd and inconsistent), but will instead do them all at once, when I finish. I'll even include a little changelog, so you can catch up with the differences real quick and easy.

I'll make blog posts every now and then to update you on my progress.

Until later!

G'luck.

I had Omega on Read Later for awhile, been wanting to start on it. But I suppose I'll just wait for the rewrite. :trixieshiftleft:

But...the chapters :fluttercry:

Oh well, I guess that's why it hasn't been updating as fast. A real shame though, this is currently my favorite fic. It has a fallout equestria feel without all the gore. And I love steampunk.

Oh well, I hate re-reading, but maybe I'll give it a try.
