    I'm sure a great many of you are purveyors of the fine arts. Writing, drawing, painting, singing, making music, whatever your flavour, I want to talk to you. People are going to tell you to study things that will get you a decent job, even if those things aren't in the direction you want to go. People will tell you that having dreams is nice and all, but you need to take the path of least

    Good lord!

    That's a lot of followers!

    In celebration of this crazy occasion, I'd like to ask for your opinions on something. A lot of people come to me for writing advice, and while I don't claim to be the most skilful writer, I do know some useful bits of general knowledge. Would anyone be interested in occasional blog posts where I address the most common problems budding writers encounter?

    Where is the next chapter?

    I'm not dead, nor have I been incapacitated. Every time I set a schedule, life makes it abundantly clear that it disapproves.
    My apologies for the lack of updates. I've been so frustrated with having no time or energy to write that I cut myself off from a few things, this site being one of them.

    University Days next chapter RESULTS

    The poll results are in and out of the 2,000+ readers, almost 300 voted. It's cool, I ignore blog posts too.

    Anyway, the decision has been made and the next chapter will cover the day before Octavia's birthday (AKA awkward snowy cuteness).

Ask Me Anything Round 2! · 7:01am May 3rd, 2012

Exactly what the title says!

I'll answer anything truthfully.

Obviously no real name/address/houseblueprints/listofmyfears stuff, but everything else I'll answer to the best of my ability.

This can go on for weeks. If you ask, I'll answer, no matter how long this has been posted for.

Sorry to all the watchers who hate getting this stuff! But remember, it's only one notification.

What does it mean to be a good person?

What do you suppose started the Brony Fandom?

What is your favorite story currently on FiMfiction?

Since 'good' and 'bad' are entirely human constructs, there is no universally agreed upon behavioural pattern that will make somebody 'good'.
Instead, it's best to look at your society and culture and see what the people around you value. If hard work and honesty are important values in your community, attempt to personify them.
Really, it depends whether you want to be a good person in your own eyes or in the eyes of others. The first is likely the most sensible way, as there are simply too many perspectives in the alternative.

Curiosity and a few open-minded folks.
Not to mention, the sheer quality of MLP was bound to attract attention whether /co/ was involved or not. I don't think anyone expected this though.

Right now I would say 'Duties' is. Really good story about the mane 6 becoming alicorns and taking up roles of leadership. It handles their transition into the new lifestyle in a very natural way.

Is it possible to understand or comprehend the human condition? Are narratives an acceptable substitute in an attempt to communicate such a concept?

Who is worst pony?

Or did you take a writing course? *sigh* Every time, I write something, it didn't simply work. :applejackunsure:

I believe so, yes. With enough research and time, we will come to understand ourselves even better than we do now.
It depends what aspect of the human condition you want to portray and in what manner. Rarely are narratives powerful enough to substitute for real life experience.


I hadn't taken a writing course until I began university. All of my knowledge came from books I had read.
Don't give up! I hate to sound like a broken record, but practice really does make perfect.

Where does thou reside? Feel free to put as much or as little detail as you want

In the merry ol' land of Aus! Specifically, the western half.

Will Lyra and bonbon ever canon!! Even if its just in the background??

If you only had the choice of eating spinach or brocolli to prevent starvation, which would you choose? Now I know this is a serious moral dilemma so take your time and ponder it well.

They are already canon! Whenever you see them with another pony, they're a changeling.

Brocolli, definitely. I actually like it.

If thou resides in aus, hath thou heard the tale of the one direction member being urinated on by a Koala?

I haven't, but now I must research this tale with gusto!

Have you ever fapped to Queen Chrysalis? :pinkiecrazy:

Are into any specific genres of music?
I'd also like to ask, have you ever experienced that music have inspired you when writing a story, at least to a certain degree?

Not yet...

The brony fandom has made me love almost every genre imaginable.
The song September by The Living Tombstone inspired be to write Howlers in the Dark :)

Not at all. It's only a matter of time for me, I'm certain.

Violin or Cello?
Totally random but meh, that's how I like it. :pinkiehappy:

Cello because of Octavia, though I am partial to some violin music such as Downstream from the Braid soundtrack.

If you were to learn a few instruments in the course of 7 years, what would they be?
Also, do you have any sort of singing voice? If so, what can you sing?

Probably piano, guitar, and/or violin.
I've never really tried singing, to be honest. I don't think I have a good singing voice.

First three bands that come to your mind as you see this message, GO!
Wait for it...
First two ponies that come into your mind as you read this message, GO!

If it were possible to have a one on one with any pony, which pony would you choose and what would your three most important questions be? Same thing but for any person in the world.

Linkin Park, Florence and the Machine, Machine Head.
Rarity and Rainbow Dash :D

One on one with Rarity.
1. How does it feel to be best pony?
2. Can I cuddle you forever and ever?
3. Is it true you taste like marshmallows?

LINKIN PARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cant wait for their new album, they've promised it to be more like hybrid theory.

Do you have any unique ideas about the mane six's families?
for example, I like to think that applejack's mother has a traditional position in the apple family that has her travel to all the apple farms in equestria that blesses the crops with earth pony magic. only able to be home for the end of summer and all of winter.

I've honestly never put much thought into it.
Although I did once make up a story where AJ's parents had died and were buried under two apple trees which she tended to with much more care than all the other trees.
I also tend to go with the fandom idea that Scootaloo is an orphan, simply because it's completely believable and it adds a whole new layer to her character. I like it because it fits with the idea that RD is an orphan too, which could make Scoots idolisation of her much more meaningful.
