Greetings, I am Merlos the Mad. I am a dabbler of both words and wizardry in my free time. I also invite you all to partake in my musings. Take care though, as they are the product of a madman.

    Hello everyone, just an update.

    Well, suffice it to say, my renewed effort to start updating to schedule once again didn't pan out. It was maybe a bit naive of me to try and hold myself to that, especially considering how bad my track record had been the last couple of years. Still, I felt I had to try.

    Moving Forward, cause I'm back!

    I probably don't deserve to use a song this awesome, but...

    Heeeello everypony. I hope you've been enjoying the updates so far. Or, at least, you know, tolerating them.

    Whoooa. Two blogs in one year? Who am I and what did I do with the real Merlos!

    It's true, I am in fact... a changeling! The real Merlos is currently locked in the basement of this stinky wizard tower, and I am readying Queen Chrysalis' eeeevil plan to take over all the fimfiction writers and then the whole world! Bwahahaha!

    Except not.

    I'm posting tomorrow

    And no one can stop me! Yah here!? (Not even me!)

    If anyone wants to read the chapters early (Yeah, more than one) I need new pre-readers and such. Turns out not updating for years on end some people stop showing up to work. Hah.

Blog Post From Nowhere! · 1:58am Mar 23rd, 2014

I'm just announcing a really amazing art piece Cannibalus just put out for Sweetie Bot, and this one he actually based on the story I wrote based off of HIS first art piece. So, we've come full circle!

Thanks Can, this is definitely spectacular. ^^

I'll drop a line here to everyone else for a moment. Hey all, no I haven't been very active on the writing scene. >.< I want to be, but I haven't been able to motivate myself, and I do know why, it's mostly my lifestyle at the moment. I wrote way more whn I was active in the military and I've been a lazy sod for months now. The only 'getting out' I do is the gym and running and with winter the way it is even that's been curtailed. I really have been working on stuff, but it qualifies more as just 'poking'. I have'nt done anything monumental.

Anywho, hopefully I'll be back eventually. I may not like the way the fandom, show or Hasbro's been going, and that's a small factor, but I do still love my stories and writing. Hope to have something significant to show you all soon!

What's wrong with the fandom?

You were military? What branch were you in?

Also that picture is awesome just saying.

I'll miss you dearly!:raritydespair:

That picture looks a hell of a lot better than what my brain first pictured when I read it.


Army! Actually. ^^

1947547 <- What's any more wrong with the fandom than usual?

You should uh... play more dota. It'll totally help you write.

As much as I hate Dota, I gotta say that was pretty funny. 1947623

Well, I'm glad your reasons for not writing isn't too worrisome. From what I can see at least Ludicrous Lycan is going to have something for us out soon to tide us Madverse enthusiasts over. So take your time and don't worry about it. Let's hope you can get back into the swing of things soon.

I've watched only the season premier(s) and the Equestria Games try-outs(or whatever it was)episode. However, the spark hasn't been... lost. Just, uh, misplaced.

The ponies have just been seeming to be getting more consistently out of character, or just enough to still be in character while still somehow being off, that it's been putting me off from watching the show. For me, it probably started around the episode before the Main Six went to the Crystal Empire to get the Games based there. The fandom's been getting... colder and harsher. I've been openly called an asshole, faggot, etc., by 'bronies' while out shopping for merch and other various things. Of course it was just the one time, but I've heard of worse from others.

1947547 Probably what pissants some people are being over Hasbro asking JanAnimations to take down their videos.

That is a really cool piece of art he made for you. :twilightsmile:

Oh and, boo army.. :twilightsheepish: go navy

That's fantastic—I love the depth of field.

For some reason I am mildly creeped out by the image. While the other one I find a bit adorable, this one I can help but be unnerved by it, maybe it's the face but I can't be %100 sure :unsuresweetie:
(It's definitely the face)



Here's a video explaining why she's a little creepy this time. The artist didn't quite translate what I'd had in my head into reality, (but it is still a beautiful piece).

1948452 I remember seeing that, god that teddy bear is creepy.

I do agree, creepy face aside it is a good piece of art. You can congratulate him on that. :twilightsmile:


A lot of us know that feel, Merlos. D:

*offers hug* YOU CAN DO EET! :twilightsmile:

I want a Sweetie Bot. Also, cool pic.

Next time on: Thunderstruck. Sweetie Bot and the ferocious feline: Cat Derp!
