I play video games, a great many instruments, and used to write once in a blue moon. I don't anymore, but I'm still active here.

    What Can I Say About the Season 5 Premiere, aka Why Equality Sucks

    First of all, I want those ponies' official names to be Cutie Marxists.

    Secondly:

    I've grown to really appreciate MLP villains that unsettle me, and Starlight Glimmer is definitely one of those. I hope we're approaching an era of quality MLP villains.

    But this episode spoke to me. Specifically the muffin scene.

    Is Fanfiction Worth It Anymore?

    Jerry Peet has become an interesting influence in my life recently. As have a few other members of the analytical community. However, if I'm going to watch any of those people (Silver Quill, ILoveKimPossibleAlot, etc.), I tend to prefer someone other than Jerry. Sure he's entertaining in his episode summaries, but some of his Glass of Water videos come off as pushy and obnoxious.

    Earlier today, I was watching Jerry and another YouTuber discussing fanworks...

    I hated her. I really did. In Equestria Girls, she was every teenage bitch ever written. Her plan made no sense, nor did the way she acted it out.

    Then September of 2014. The dreaded sequel reared its ugly head and confirmed why fanfiction should stay on the internet and off the big screen.

    But there were two good things about it. One was Vinyl Scratch. I don't know why, I just found her funny.

    From the Realm of the Dead

    Yep, I'm alive. I just had to leave for a long time because I needed a computer that could handle FIMFiction, which my old one can't. Rest assured that I am in fact alive and I'll hopefully be writing and reading again (if not the former, then definitely the latter).

    I loved season four, and I'm stoked for season five. But I do have a serious question: where the Hell can we possibly go from here? How can this show get any bigger than the finale to the last season (which was F@$%ING AWESOME)?

I Can't Do It, Jon! · 11:30pm Jul 22nd, 2013

I have to apologize for two things, both from my last blog post.

I promised that upon my return, chapter two of In The Shadows of The Gods would be up. First of all, the chapter's not even finished yet, and second of all, my return to the States was almost two weeks ago.

My ambition, writer's block, and poor work ethic have made a liar of me.

But I can't help it. I'm stuck on a very specific part of the chapter that I slapped in the middle to draw it out and I'm unsure of how to transition it to the part I have written. But my fanfiction career in general has been stressful lately. I'm trying to get a foothold on ITSoTG, I have a Vengeanceverse story that I have no idea what to do with, a story on FanFiction that I've all but abandoned (and am hoping to rewrite), a forum on FanFiction that I'm desperately trying to keep up with as a distraction from writing, a stupid number of stories that have been on my Read Later list for far too long, and unread Favorites that I'm not now motivated to read. I really don't want to stop reading and writing fanfiction, but I'm finding it too stressful and slow to really enjoy.

I need a break. I need to prioritize my fanfiction things. I need help. If anyone can offer some advice or even sympathy, please do! Hell, I'll take a beta reader, if anyone's willing. Consider this a cry for help.

Vivat nox.

I finally return to FimFic and this is what I find. Well if you need help, I'm here to help. Oh! Don't worry about chapter 2 of ES. I can go over my ideas for LV, with you and we can shape that piece up. :twilightsmile:

:pinkiesmile: Just the person I wanted to see.

We definitely need to go over plans for Vengeanceverse, and I could use a little help onn getting ideas for ITSoTG.

I miss the days when I could write whole chapters in a day. Of course, I was much younger then.

:facehoof:...I say that like I'm in my fifties or something.
