I'm The Sentient Cloud, a now-retired fanfiction writer from New Zealand. If you're looking at this, then you've probably already found your way to either "The Piano Man" or "Those Who Came Before".

    Updates on /everything/

    Okay, so as a little note: I am still around, and I am still working on the final Piano Man Chapter.
    But, that brings me to an interesting point, that being; I'm not entirely sure I'll keep writing for FIMFiction once it's over. I'm not saying I won't, but it's a possibility.

    Hard at Work

    I know I've been very quiet update-wise as of late, so I feel it's best that I put up a quick blog post.

    As per normal, Those Who Came Before is still on hiatus until I've put out these last two Piano Man chapters. I just felt I should reaffirm that. The first of the two-part epilogue for The Piano Man: Act II is close to completion too. I apologize for the long wait.

    Google "The Piano Man"

    Every now and then, I Google my stories, just to see how far down the list they pop up. Obviously, The Piano Man has never been high on the search results unless you include 'FIMfiction' in the search bar.


    Seriously. What.

Some of you may have noticed a large lack of... well, anything, recently.

I thought I should probably just drop a blog post saying that I'm still around, and suffering severely in my attempts to close of The Piano Man. I know what I want, and the basic structure, but the final scene is not coming together in a smooth, organic way. I'm worried that it may be because the entire idea is too contrived to work out, which would lead to a large rewrite. I feel that if the situation is contrived, I could force it to work through a process of extreme lampshading, but I already include a huge amount of lampshading in all of my chapters in order to cover inconsistencies in characterization and continuity.

TL;DR, I'm having trouble.

You'll figure it out, or you could run your ideas by someone. Two heads are better than one right?


That's what I'm for. :pinkiesad2:

Now if only you'd pop on and say hi once in awhile, Clouuuud. :trixieshiftleft:

But, where's the C clef in the super clef? (You know, the alto clef?)
