    #11: Return

    So, it's been a heck of a long time since I was last here on Fimfiction. I became rather preoccupied with a lot of things over the past couple of years, and I still have stuff going on. There's the new puppy (who is quite a handful just by herself), working on my novel, my continuing involvement in audio series production (with a new series coming out later this year, which I have a much more

    #10: DW: The East India Incident

    So I've returned after a lengthy hiatus. I have begun work on the next part of The Country of Roses, published the first chapter of a new story, and a little while ago, released a new story in the Doctor Who audio drama series on YouTube.

    #9 - This Week, I Had a Surprise

    As some of my readers may have picked up on in my earliest author's notes, I started writing The Country of Roses for reactionary purposes. I wanted to see if I could blend something I loved and something which I still approached with great trepidation. This phenomena called My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was startling, bizarre, confusing, and perhaps a little frightening. I

    #8: Camp NaNoWriMo 2014 - Concluded

    So Camp NaNoWriMo has concluded for July 2014. Although I reached my projected word count, the book itself is still far from done, so I'll be working on that. This doesn't mean I'm abandoning Country of Roses, I'm still working on that now, but I've made a lot of headway with my original project and would like to see that reach its end and possible publication.

    #7: Camp NaNoWriMo 2014

    So for those who did not see the author's note at the end of my latest chapter, I will not be working on The Country of Roses until after July as I have signed up to compete in Camp NaNoWriMo, a lighter version of National Novel Writing Month (whether I will compete in the larger programme in November is still up in the air). As of today, I will be working hard to meet my chosen word

#2: Three for Three, and G Two, Too · 6:30pm Jan 5th, 2014

First it was the Las Pegasus Tribune, then it was Equestria Daily, and now The Country of Roses has officially obtained triple-threat status with its feature on Canterlot's Finest, which itself recently celebrated achieving 50,000 views! For those who are not aware, Canterlot's Finest is a website run by Fimfiction's own Alexstrazsa, and is specifically dedicated to highlighting fan-labours like prose and comic strips. It never ceases to amaze me how well my story is getting circulated, and I hope this will bring in more fantastic readers like the ones I have. The ones who give meaningful feedback and do their best to help me improve for the sake of our shared enjoyment.

In unrelated but equally great news, my friend Codex received a copy of Guild Wars 2 for Christmas, and has now become a member of my guild, the Ka-Tet of the Lake. She's been recording some of her play sessions with me, Bed Head and non-Fimfiction member Hikari, which can be perused below. She's been out of the YouTube Let's Playing game for a few months now, but is making an effort to get back in. She certainly deserves some more views, so watch her videos, laugh at her antics, and show her some love. If that's not possible, I'm informed she also accepts offers of gold, gemstones and sacrificial virgins. Fruit baskets are an option, provided they don't contain bananas.

WARNING: some swearing.

Play Session: 27/December/2013 (4 parts)

Play Session: 3/January/2014 (4 parts)

Finally, the next chapter of The Country of Roses is well underway, and I've even had ideas for a sequel, but I won't say too much, only that it will expand the universe established in Roses significantly and focus on both Peacemaker's group as well as some other characters. My friends have been great for the idea-bouncing sessions, and I've rediscovered exactly how therapeutic fan-fiction can be for my original work as well.

So far 2014 A.D.'s been pretty cool, so here's to the rest of the year being just as brilliant.
