    Eh, why not

    Hey there, horse word friends. Was cleaning up some old storage and found the occasionally discussed "alternate ending" to Twilight, Revised that I wrote and never publicly released. I've grown to dislike lost media, so in that spirit, figured I'd vomit it up nine years (GOOD LORD) late. It's not going on the main story as I think

    Yes, I'm still around occasionally. I can be summoned via PM.

    Follow up.

    Real quick... I posted a few months ago with a Patreon related to my bad movie review blog, mentioning I was unemployed. Well, I have a job again, so no need to worry. Or give. (Unless you still want to.)

    Just didn't want people to see only the last blog and worry.

    Hope ponies are going well. See ya.

    Is this thing on?

    Um... hey guys. I lost my job yesterday. (Yeah, they fired me just before Labor Day weekend. My former employers are hilarious.) I've known this was coming for around two months now, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find another job yet.

    (Big ol' disclaimer: pretty much entirely personal crap. Skip if you're so inclined.)

    Contrary to popular opinion, I'm bothered by a lack of resolution on a personal level. So, here I am again. This is going to sound a bit rambly, as I was slightly drunk while writing some of this.

Hanging up the saddle for a time (an open letter to everyone I have obligations to in the fandom right now) · 4:43pm Dec 1st, 2013

tl;dr I have life things happening, so no pony fandom for me for a while.

So, hi folks. I know some of you I've promised reviews and commissions and things; I've tried to contact all of you (and send refunds where appropriate), but in case I forgot a few people, I'm posting this.

The day before Thanksgiving, Ebon Mane broke up with me. (He's being pretty gentlemanly about it, so don't send him hate mail or anything of the sort.)

As I've been living with him, I kind of need to sort out what I'm going to do now, where I'm going to go, where I can find work that's not crappy low-paying contract stints, etc. Sad to say, pony becomes something of a distraction when I have issues that important on my plate, so to make sure I can give all of these things I need to decide the attention they very badly need. So, no writing/pre-reading/editing/anything pone for the foreseeable future from me. I don't know when/if I'll come back, because right now bronydom has this hint of personal emotional baggage that really kills my enthusiasm for it. However, it was not that long ago that this stuff was fun, or at least most of it was, so right now I don't see myself staying away for very long once I get my life sorted out and settled into whatever I'm going to do now.

If I promised you a commission or something of that nature and I haven't been in touch with you, please get a hold of me with my apologies. It's best to use email (gmail, not the old derpymail one) to contact me, since I don't imagine I'll be checking Fimfiction very much, if at all, during this period.

Just don't burn the place down while I'm gone, alright? I doubt this is a goodbye.

Damn. That sucks, dude.

May life go better for you.

Take all the time you need, we'll be here.

We'll be here when you get back. :fluttershysad:

Good luck, man.

Sorry to hear that, bro. Wish you all the best while you sort things out.

What about mild-disapproval mail? Or perhaps a reproachful frown?

pf... whatever. You'll find your place. Good luck. :pinkiesmile:

Yeesh, sorry to hear that, man. Best of luck with your future, and I hope you come back one day.

We'll miss you.

Oh no Vimbo :( Best of luck man!

dude... you said you had things to hash out, but... damn...

Sorry to hear, Vimmy. Take as long as you need.

Man, I'm sorry to hear it Vimbert. Breakups are always rocky. Hope things smooth out in the future!

Sorry to hear about your break-up. Hang in there, good sir, you'll get things sorted out. A break, especially for something like this, is definitely warranted.

Best thoughts go with you.

Having been through something similar when I moved back to California from Seattle, I know you've got some personal reinvention ahead. I wish you well in keeping the best out of what you had, and leaving behind the things holding you back. I think you're right, pony's in the former category, but a little time to let things settle is awfully prudent.

Dang. Best of luck to you, good sir. Just keep your chin up and everything will work out in the end.

Life aims for the urinal and frequently misses.

Sorry to hear about your woes. You're a good person and a major source of inspiration for me. It's painful to contemplate you having to endure any sort of emotional, financial, or equine loss. I believe in your strength and versatility and have absolute faith that you shall endure. A break from poni poni poni, however trifle, is most certainly forgivable. I'd wish you the best in luck, but I already believe that your own tenacity shall overcome any and all circumstances.

We'll be waiting, candle-stick head

I am extremely saddened to hear the reason behind your hiatus. :( You know where to find us when you come back, though. Godspeed, sir.

What they said

Best of luck. If you're working with time constraints the honest truth is you might have to humble yourself and take what you can till you can get a simple studio or roommate situation. I hope you make it through alright. :pinkiesad2:

Take care of yourself and sorry for your loss. This month is already starting off with a lot of breakups it seems :fluttershysad:

Dunno if you're gonna see this, but if you do, my best wishes go with you. I'll do what I can to keep the ficbox humming while you're seeing to yourself.

Oh. So that's why... oh. Here's hoping things work out for the both of you.

Sorry to hear that. Best wishes and hope things get better for you soon!
