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.

I totally forgot to do this years April Fools day prank. Augh! I'd had this planned out since LAST year, but forgot about it. :facehoof: I'm such a dope, and a lazy one. Sighs

Well, I was going to announce that Sweetie Belle would be getting an upgrade in the next chapter.

As you can see, they do in fact make human body chassis in that future world where Sweetie exists. Anyway, sorry for wasting your time with such a late... jesus it's 5 AM. o.o

Well! In any case I'll just be right back with that next update fellas. Hops into his getaway boat.

You dun goofed!

You terrible, terrible tease.

Do go on.


Oh I know... I wish I could give more, but I'm terribly lazy. Writing and doing stuff is hard. T.T

Now that I think about it... this could actually happen.

Maybe Alice had a spare one of these lying about for 'reasons' and felt guilty for hitting Sweetie Belle with her car.

Idea! :raritystarry:
Wait until April 1st comes around again to post the next chapter wherein this happens.


Hah, I don't write enough of the actual story already. I gotta get on that first.


~Skeeter The Lurker

I just realized the idea of "age of consent" is very nebulous for robots, so maybe it's a good thing sexy human sweetie belle didn't happen. :unsuresweetie:

I have a curious desire to redraw that morbidly.

*Clicks on image link*

Don't worry, it's not too late. I'll make sure of it.


WHAT?!??!?! This is ridiculous! Impossible! HOW DAER U AUTHOR??! :pinkiegasp:

-Huh? Hahah, ohh! It is but an April Fool's! You have led me on with a clever ruse, Merlos! Well played, my friend! :moustache:

Stop gaming, start writin'

It's not your fault you haven't written more. Changelings have eaten all of your ambition. It happens all the time. :trollestia:

Don't feel bad. I forgot too.

I'll be planning for next year. :pinkiecrazy:

*Waits as patiently as one who gets no updates of favorites in two months can wait* I miss my favorites being updated. :raritycry: :unsuresweetie::derpyderp2:


I miss updating. D:

I finished hashing out the next chapter at least. Just gotta finish writing it now. Honestly the editing is the harder part. I tend to post and edit/worry about stuff I missed later though. <.<

2986216 Ah. Well, as long as you're working on it at a reasonable pace, I say take your time to make it right. :twilightsmile:


Oh it's an entirely unacceptable pace, mark my words. lol I need to start writing better among many other things.

Wow! You all had us expecting your usual April Fools day prank... :twilightsmile: and we waited... :twilightsheepish: and waited... :twilightblush:

and BOOM!!! You got us! :pinkiegasp:
Great prank, making us wait and wonder, and then PSYCHE!!! :rainbowlaugh:

I reduced my gaming down to just Kerbal Space Program... I have literally played nothing else. I get so much more done now that I never touch any of the other gaming crap I have laying around... :trollestia:

But in all seriousness... I miss updates... ATL+MLM... Sweetie Circuit... I mean Short Belle... I mean... the robot one! :unsuresweetie:


Lol, Short Belle, nice.

I know, I'm just the worst.

2988064 You're not the worst! You're one of the best... Just... Nintendo best. We'll see Zelda/MLM+ATL in like... 2016... we hope... And it'll be TOTALLY worth the wait! :twilightsmile:

... in 2017. :trollestia:


Lol, sooner than that I hope. When I do post next I hope to have things set up better though. i just need to sit down and work things out, then write it.

2986225 Hey, your writing is some of the best on this site, so I'm currently content...when I have...*ahem*...enough to read. THAT REMINDS ME! I still have not read all of your stories...I just don't know if I could get into another story right now...that is to say a longer story with more updates to come. I've been sticking to reading shorter ones and trying to finish others when I'm in the mood.

Am I type-rambling? I think I'm type-rambling. ....meh whatever.


Hm, well I have a couple shorter completed ones, and a couple I've helped with a lot that belong to others that are short. If you need recommendations though I can offer those.

I know what you mean though, I haven't been reading much except for shorter stories that are high in comedy.

2989108 Yeah. I don't need recommendations right now, but thanks for the offer. I have over 300 stories on my Read Later bookshelf. :twilightsheepish: Maybe I'll get to cutting them down a bit soon.
