    Q&A Round Twenty-Seven!

    Since it's been a while (nearly a year, to be exact) since the last one, I think it's high time for another Q&A session.

    Here, as per usual, are the rules:

    Hey, everyone.

    This is just a quick blog to remind you that I have created a Discord server - https://discord.gg/uAvG9e3 - which I will use to - hopefully - chat to some of my followers, as well as give them sneak peeks on what I'm working on.

    Armistice Day 2018

    Someone posted this video on the UKBP Discord server; it was made by a friend of theirs to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and - I think - is a very good tribute to those who served.

    But don't take my word for it; watch it yourself, and formulate your own opinion.

Q&A Round Four - The Answers! · 3:49pm May 29th, 2013

I know I said I would make a video, but Windows Movie Maker annoyed the fuck out of me, so I gave up. I fucking hate the new version they've got - I prefer the old Windows XP version. The new one is just too much hassle.

Anyway, enough griping, it's time to answer questions!


Twilight Best Pony

Are you going to end this wonderful series with a bad note? Or will work out?

I can't answer that without the risk of spoilers. Sorry! :raritydespair:


LonelyPegasusGuitar

is it true that there is a place in a ponies head, that if you shoot it, it will blow up?

I've seen a GIF of a deer's head exploding after it was shot, so I'd assume the same would be true for ponies.


Klakmuf

Does blueblood, Filthy and Sterling will have major roles in "A Season Of Terror"?

Nope, nope and nope.


MurderOfAKiller

Will you ever stop being awesome?

Nope, never. :rainbowlaugh:

Do you like waffles?

Yeah, but I prefer pancakes.

How many more stories do you think you'll have written before season 4 comes out?

I can't really say, to be honest. If I've got 40 stories up by the time Season 4 comes out that'll be great. If not, it's not the end of the world.

Are you hyped for season 4/Equestria Girls?

I'm looking forward to Season Four, as it will give me some new canon to work with. As for Equestria Girls... it can rot for all I care. I won't be giving it the time of day, any new canon be damned!

Also, I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain? Coming down, on a sunny day.

I live in Scotland. All we ever seem to get is fucking rain. :twilightangry2:


Chessboard_Jack

WHEN WILL TENNA BE IN BE IN THE GEOVERSE? :flutterrage:

As soon as I come up with, and then write, a story for her!

AS A CONTINUATION OF THE FIRST QUESTION, WHAT IS THE ETA ON THAT CLOP?

Whenever I can get my brain to come up with an idea.

TIPS FOR NEW WRITERS SUCH AS MYSELF?

1) Write what you're comfortable with.
2) Seek the advice of others.
3) Accept all (constructive) criticism.


Ikemtz16

What TV shows do you like (Besides MLP)?

Futurama, South Park, Sons of Anarchy, Family Guy, American Dad!, Malcom in the Middle, The Simpsons, Viscious, Shameless.

There might be more, but these are the only ones I can remember off the top of my head. :twilightsmile:

Even though you play PS3, are considering getting an xbox?

Probably not.

Would it bother you if I make an alternate universe story, placing my OC's into the Geoverse?

I would be honoured! I've always said that people are free to write their own Geoverse stories. Crimson Star was actually the first person to do this, and Vetnern was the second. If they did it, then you can too!

Besides A Season of Adventure, how are your other story notes organized?

They're not. :rainbowlaugh:

Generally I make up stuff as I go along (something I'm surprisingly good at, as it happens). But if I do get an idea I'll make a note of it in a Notepad document. A Season Of Adventure and A Season Of Terror are the only two stories to have properly organised notes.

Where did you get the idea of Dr. Ace Sorou? He is one of my favorite characters in the series, and I'm just curious how he came to be.

Ace Sorou isn't one of my characters. He was created by Crimson Star, my co-writer for pretty much every Geoverse story since To Love Is Human. I sent your question to him, and he answered with the following:

Ace was created by me after I came to Geo to help write To Love is Human. I decided to base Ace off of myself, for starters. Then I took my interest and knowledge of mechanics and multiplied it several times over. I threw in a desire to be like my favorite mad scientists, added a few quirky habits, and presto! Ace was born.

A funny story about the origin of Ace's name: I remembered a while back this old commercial for Dunk-a-roos. Ace was already my nickname, and I needed a last name for him. So I decided to replace the word "Dunk" with "Ace" in the jingle.

Ace-a-roos
Ace-sa-roos
Ace Sa roo
Ace Sorou

And that's how Equestria was made!

Happy Birthday! :pinkiehappy: Now let's answer your questions.

has the season of horror have to do anything with cupcakes (creepypasta) pinkie pie

It's A Season Of Terror, not A Season Of Horror. So no, it won't have anything to do with Cupcakes. :pinkiesick:

what inspired you 2 become a writer

As much as it pains me to admit this... it was the /mlp/ board over at 4chan. I was lurking there one day when I came across the Anonymous in Equestria thread. I read a few stories and liked what I saw, so I decided to have a go. And lo, To Friend Is Human was born. That's right, it started out as a greentext story. But then I discovered Fimfiction and decided to turn it into a proper story.

I'm glad I did, because Fimfiction allowed me to reach a larger audience!

do you play minecraft and if you do you want to meet up on a sever

I play Minecraft, but very rarely these days. However, if you have a server in mind, just send me the IP.

how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tousy pop

I wouldn't know, because I've never seen one in the UK.

Your first three questions were about Ace, so once again I asked Crimson Star to answer them. I answered your fourth question, though. :twilightsmile:

so.... Ace is basically a young version of doctor Robotnic and doctor Willey fused together?

I drew a shit-ton of inspiration from my two favorite video games as a kid when I made Dr. Sorou. Dr. Robotnik has always been an awesome villain to me. Dr. Wily wasn't that much of a villain compared to Robotnik, but I loved the designs for his bots. I always felt the best villains were mad scientists, which is why I decided to make Ace a villain. I took what I liked best about both Robotnik and Wily, and fused them into the scientist Ace became. I originally intended to keep him as the hero, but I figured he's had enough character development, so I decided that season 4 needed a villain. Ace isn't supposed to be a villain, but I think the coming story will make that all too apparent.

is ace going to kidnap pinkie pie and chocolate?

I can't answer that without giving you spoilers about the story Geo and I are working on. But I will tell you that Ace isn't thinking quite clearly right now. Even when he was in service of Princess Celestia, he was quite willing to take hostages, kidnap others, and fake injury to put his opponent off guard. Ace doesn't believe in a fair fight, and always fights dirty.

has ace lost his mind? (my guess is yes)

Of course he has. He's a mad scientist. What kind of question is that?

bacon egg and cheese biscuit or brownies for breakfast?

Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. I love all three of those things, so of course I'd have them together!


greatodyer

How hard was it to write GTC? And yes...I said 'hard' - *sniggers*

Ah yes, the clopfic I wrote for your story... it was quite a pain to write, as when it comes to clop you can't use the same thing over and over. Hence why I wrote about things I've never even explored in my own clop.

... any more info and I'll have to tag this as NSFW.

And one more question. In the next Geoverse story - A Season of Terror - if you can tell us, are we going to be seeing any new characters at all?

Sorry, but I can't answer that due to potential spoilers. :trollestia:


listener

Is this question too personal?

Yes, so I'm not answering it.

Honestly, some people!


Shadowmist

Fav clop?

Sophistication and Betrayal. Its got a very good story, and the clop is well written. Read it and see for yourselves!


And that's all, folks! I'm sorry I didn't do an audio blog, but Windows Movie Maker sucks now. Sorry about that, and apologies to Crimson Star for wasting your time regarding those audio clips you sent me.

Another Q&A will take place sometime next month, so keep an eye out for it!

... WHY DO PANCAKES? Waffles have those syrup-pocket-things. (Yes, that is the technical term for them.)
Though I can't disagree with your take on EQG and S4. Hell, I even DREAD June 16th.
