    Chapter update

    Just an update on the progress of chapter nine. What is it? None :raritycry:

    Well that's a lie, I had to start over what I had and tweak what I had planned so basically I'm starting from scratch. I'm working on it but I have jury duty in addition to other responsibility so progress is slow. I can at least share a title (Subject to change)

    Last 2015 update

    Well it's the last day of 2015 already, can hardly believe it went by so fast. Being that were on the cusp of the new year I thought I'd take this time to go over what my plans are for the next few months.

    1: Regarding my Batman story I would like to get to a point where I could release at least one story ark per month, fingers crossed.

    Batman story update

    Hey ya'll, hope your all having a good winter so far, weather's been kind of rough where I'm at but not unbearable. I thought I'd update you on the progress of Batman. So I currently have the next chapter halfway done and I'm at a place where I could easily split it in two. Would anyone prefer me to do that so you can get a chapter tomorrow or wait the *Garbled static noises* that it will take

    Crusaders of the lost mark update

    So as the title suggests this is a blog about the newly aired episode and the new cannon it introduced into the show. First off my opinions, very good episode! Finally we get some Diamond Tiara character development as well as a bit for Silver Spoon as well. The music was good but like Magical Mystery Cure I felt it could have been told better as a regular episode. That being said Diamond

    A pain filled life update

    For those of you who don't know I'm working 6 day weeks at a lumber yard, which is part of why I haven't had as much time to write as I'd like. At about 1 I accidentally dropped a concrete pier block on my middle finger and damaged it pretty badly. Thankfully nothing broke but the skin blistered and it tore the skin below the first joint.

Boast Busters blog + Hiatus · 6:52pm May 25th, 2015

As promised here is a blog detailing all the changes my "Boast Busters" story has gone through. My original concept started out before i even started writing last year, at first it was going to be very close to the original episode. Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Rarity would still have their altercation with Trixie, but Twilight would get on stage and accept her duel. (This was before i had the concept of an alternate mane 6 yet) Again things would go pretty much the same, but Trixie and Twilight would end up defeating the Ursa minor together and Snips (or Snails) would get arrested for bringing a monster to town. When i started writing the "Friendship is Magic" story ark, i shelved "Boast Busters".

Around the time i was halfway through "Griffon the Brush off" i started working on the concept once more, i realized i hadn't introduced Dinky to the story yet and decided that she needed to have a major role, She was going to be working with Snips and Snails and would be the one to egg them on into bringing the Ursa to Ponyville. But i realized that wouldn't reflect well on the character i was trying to build so i scrapped that.

It was only halfway through writing the first chapter that the idea of Trixie having a stage and off stage persona came to be. But i feel it was a good choice, theirs already so many good stories about Trixie's rivalry with Twilight, i wanted to try something different. She's not particularly strong magic-wise, but she uses what she has in creative ways.

Anyway i had the ending mostly worked out, Dinky would ultimately be the one to save the day. The only problem was finding just the right way to get there, thus you all got what was supposed to be one chapter turn into a three chapter finale. That's about all the ins and outs of what went on hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of my creative process.

And now for the hiatus announcement, I'll be at Everfree Northwest and i'm not doing any writing till i get back, mostly so i can recharge. But does that mean nothings gonna happen till then? No. I'm going to look for an artist to commission a nice looking piece of art for the story, Also i'm going to talk with some other authors there and get some tips on how i can improve my writing. Last of all i already have the story concept for "Dragon Shy" done, hopefully you'll all like it when it comes out.

Thanks for reading, Ultronquake
