    Update (Without excuses this time!)

    Guess what? I'm done writing the next chapter of Manifesto.

    I just need to give my prereaders a day or two to look over it, and then it'll go up.

    Until then, here's Despacito being played on a guzheng.

    Hey, everyone.

    I've somehow gotten out of the habit of posting updates. Oops.

    Anyway, you've no doubt noticed that I don't post as often as I once did in the past. This is largely because improvements in my life situation mean I have the wherewithal to engage in hobbies other than writing fanfiction.

    Update.

    Goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it? You're probably wondering why my pace has slowed down on Manifesto. Well, there are several reasons, but the most relevant one is that I find myself rewriting large swaths of this chapter as I zero in on the best plan for Sunset to take. I'm basically going back and forth between two ideas that can't really be combined into a single one, and for

    New Story Incoming

    In case you missed my last blog post, I'm taking a break from the adventures of Celestia and Daring Do to write the next Petriculture story. At this point it looks like it'll be fairly short -- about two chapters long -- and I recently finished up the first chapter, which will be posted once my prereaders give it a final once-over.

Regarding the finale... · 6:10pm Apr 21st, 2012

So, when I watched the Season 2 finale, I wasn't really expecting it to have any effect on WS&C... but apparently, all the events in my story need to happen before the Wedding, since Rainbow Dash can pull off a Sonic Rainboom pretty much at will, even against gravity. Fortunately for me, that shouldn't mess with the suspension of disbelief too much, since Studio B rarely gives any indication about how much time passes between episodes.

Eh, I take the 'the show is officially authorized fanfiction' approach to canon. Anything that appears in only one episode is just a riff on the basic premise, and can be ignored.

There is honestly no need to worry about minor canon issues like this. Characterization is important, but canon... I just consider every single fic their own derivative universe separate from canon, no matter how much they follow canon anyway. It's really not a big deal to contradict canon in minor ways.

As soon as I say that in the episode, I was like, "All that resistance training must have payed off."

I'll admit, my first thought when I saw her pull that off was to your story. Of course it also brings back my head canon that Rainbow's not in the Wonderbolts not because she lacks the skill or talent, but that she lacks teamwork experience. And her pulling off an upward Sonic Rainboom, kinda helps that along. Otherwise, why the hay isn't she on the team yet?

78666 I'm not really worried about it. I just thought it was interesting, particularly since one of the lessons in the finale, like my most recent chapter, is also "Twilight's instincts are never wrong."

(Lesson Zero doesn't count.)

Happened before, no problem. Heck, it explains HOW she got to that point. You even noted she was TRAINING TO DO THAT.
