    I'm alive!

    Chap isn't done yet but it's getting there. Did 1000 words just tonight, going to shoot for similar tomorrow.

    Thanks again for sticking with me!

    Good news bad news

    Good news! The chap is written and off to the editors as of today. As soon as it's done, it'll be posted, no matter where in the month it is. Shall start writing on the next chapter immediately!

    Ugh my back

    OK, so, I somehow fell into a job at the start of the month, and it's largely done on my feet for up to eight hours at a time. On top of that, I threw out my back and it hurts like crazy. I've been very lucky on my shifts so far, as my back has been in a decent state for them but oh man does it get bad right after. I was even in the ER the other day. Thus, writing has been slow, and I need to

    Gonna need more time, but...

    Yup, November wasn't very productive writing-wise. Spent a lot of it looking for a new place to live to no avail, so it looks like we're staying put for a year or so while I look for work to get some income.

WHOA! I have... watchers? · 3:43am Jul 11th, 2012

WOW! I casually mention my little coming fic and I get my first two folks watching me! Such is the power of Alicorn Twilight Sparkle.

Wait, strike that, in the time I started writing, someone else started watching, for a total of three. Holy crap!

I know this doesn't count for Gwenio, who is practically an Alicorn Twilight Fic connoisseur, but if you guys want some great Alicorn Twi fics to read in the meantime, I cannot recommend Kobalstromo's "On Wings of Change" strongly enough. It's recently been revamped and the writing is absolutely, STUNNINGLY top-notch. http://www.fimfiction.net/story/10196/On-Wings-of-Change

He's a great guy and it's a fantastic story.

Another really, really good one is "Sharing the Night" http://www.fimfiction.net/story/16375/Sharing-the-Night
It's EqD-featured and has a wonderful take on alicornhood.

Also check out John Perry's stuff. No alicorn twi fics, but he's been helping me with editing and has some great stories himself. http://www.fimfiction.net/user/JohnPerry Werewolf and Fan have also been a huge help. http://www.fimfiction.net/user/werewolf435 http://www.fimfiction.net/user/FanOfMostEverything

With luck either tonight or tomorrow I'll be able to submit it for the final editing pass. After that, all I need is the cover art which my wife is working on. She's real busy so I don't have an exact ETA, which is why I have to stay vague on the release. But each day it gets a bit closer.

What can I say? I LOVE Alisparkle fics! I'm glad another one is being made! :twilightsmile:

Well, welcome and I very much hope you enjoy mine!

As I said, it's got a rather different take on the idea of alicornification. (Suck on THAT word, spell checker!) As fun as it is to have Twi suddenly grow wings and deal with it (I'm a HUGE sucker for Alicorn Twilight fics too), I knew that I wouldn't be able to make something unique if I went that route. Too much ground already covered there. So I'm trying something different.

Along with finishing up the first huge block (~40k words or so), I'm working on the second block (currently sitting at ~25k words). I tend to work in huge chunks like that, get them shored up, and then break them into chapters. So it's reasonable to expect some gaps in chapters followed by a chunk of releases.

Expected tags are Adventure, maybe Comedy, and maybe Dark. While it will have dark moments, it will NOT go into or even anywhere near Grimdark, as I personally can't stand Grimdark.

Oh! One more story you may wish to check out is "Not My Destiny". It's one of the early Alicorn Twilight fics, and it's very good. Stay away from the alternate Grimdark ending unless you can stomach it, though. I had to run and hide after about six lines of that.

Not My Destiny? I've read it. It's a good story. I've also read what exists so far of the sequel, Glim. It's good too!
Also, don't forget to specify Cadance's alicorn status! I personally think she is a winged unicorn, not an immortal alicorn. Thus, no huge supply of magic (although more than the
average unicorn) and no immortality. Good luck with the fic!
:twilightsmile:

I'm scared of Glim X) I'm not a fan of tragedies but I really, really want to read it...

And Cadence is explained :) Not right away, but she's both in the story and her status is clarified.

Alicorn Twilight is best Twilight. :twilightsmile:

I read On Wings of Change, and the first chapter is amazing! :pinkiehappy: Expectations is another awesome Alicorn Twilight fic that I enjoyed immensely, and I love how Twilight reacts to her alicornification (wow, that is a long word...) throughout the story.

I can't wait to see what you have in store for us! :yay:
