    A Nice Thing To Wake Up To

    Morning all!

    You know, these days I'm largely writing for myself. Which is to say, I'm no longer hugely concerned with getting as many views as possible. Story ideas occur in my head, and I write them out because I enjoy the satisfaction of them being transcribed into reality where other people may also read them. Ten people, ninety people, a thousand, honestly it's inconsequential.

    How Things Are

    Phew. It's been a minute, huh guys?

    At this point, I'm not even especially sure how many people will read this. But there's some therapeutic gains to be had by getting thoughts written down, so here we go. An update. If you're reading, here, have a cookie.

    Hooray! Nutrition!

    Not Dead

    What the title says. Sorry about the sudden unexplained hiatus, and obvious issue regarding the lack of a certain fic I was meant to upload. Something tantamount to an explanation this time next week, at the moment I'm still figuring things out and trying to find my feet.

    The Final Countdown

    So. On The Rocks. Out tomorrow.

    Hope you guys enjoy it, and I also hope it's worth the wait. The actual submitting for review may be a bit later than I'd hoped, as I need to stay a few extra hours at work tomorrow (le sigh) but it will be posted sometime tomorrow night. You guys ready for this?

    Gracious in Defeat. Honest.

    So that obvious cheat lovely chap Blueshift won the UKofE writing contest for the first month! Am I annoyed? YES! A little, have a photo of me balancing plushies on my head. It cheered me up.

Another Milestone! · 10:06pm Jul 27th, 2014

Firstly, this is ten followers late, but I recently hit two-hundred-and-fifty followers! I believe Rarity offered to express my gratitude. Rares?

Much obliged, Rarity.

So, I decided that for this blog, as a little celebration, I'd share for you a little bit of information about my OC! All enclosed for your convenience in this little guide:

8-Bit, commonly referred to simply as "Eight" by his friends.




Grey coat, blue eyes, mane and tail are black with blue stripe, Cutie Mark is a pixelated skull.

Special Talent:
Traditional & Arcade Gaming

Primary Residence:


A ferret named Gizmo

Apprentice at Ponyville arcade, learning to maintain and restore older arcade games, as well as learning management skills. His father founded and owns the arcade, and when he retires, Eight is set to be promoted to manager. Eight also is a part-time weather pony, only going on active weather duty if a regular weather pony calls in sick, or if he is needed for preparing for larger events (eg. Summer Sun Celebration).

Though he has aspirations (like many of the pegasi in town) to join the Wonderbolts, his flying skills are fairly lackluster. He can fly fairly fast normally, and has a lot more wingpower than you might expect, but he lacks the finesse to perform stunt flights. Whilst he can perform maneuvers perfectly in flight simulators, he can never pull off stunts in real life. He can often be found practicing his flying on the outskirts of town, but the results are normally catastrophic, and end up with a hospital visit and a letter sent off to claim on someponies house insurance.

Jovial, kind-hearted, playful, and fiercely loyal to his friends. Though meeting new ponies can normally scare him, he never lets his fears surface, and will always treat new ponies with the same kindness and respect he shows to those closer to him. This mental battle between fear and determination often shows up on the surface as eccentricities, but he does his best not to let them get the better of him.

And that's my OC! If you ever want to use him in a story, feel free to, just as long as you let me know first.

Thanks again for all the follows, guys. It means a lot. Stay sexy, my minions!
