    Happy Back to the Future Day!

    Tumblr notwithstanding, today is the day Marty and Doc arrive in 2015.

    If you live in central California, keep an eye out at 4:29 PM... just in case.

    Signal boost: PiquoPie's Dual Stories mechanic

    PiquoPie has a new fic out that implements an interesting/clever storytelling mechanic that I've not personally seen anyone else use. If you have a few minutes, drop by and check it out.

    Fic Idea

    Has anybrony written The Maretian, starring Carrot Top as a plucky astronaut stranded on Equestria's nearest celestial neighbor, forced to grow her favorite vegetables to survive?

    If not, and if I have any cachet left in the fandom, I'm throwing it all behind begging someone to write this so I can read it.

    Inspector Gadget 2.0

    This was my jam when I was a kid.

    So I was startled to see that Netflix brought Inspector Gadget back in a CGI sequel -- I legitimately thought it was an April Fool's Day thing until I researched more, and apparently this was announced months ago and already aired in Europe.

    I was even more surprised when Penny opened her mouth and a purple unicorn started talking.

    I watched the pilot and don't think I'll be watching any more; weird art style/decisions are too distracting for me. But the guy they got to play Gadget sounds just like I remember. Ahh, nostalgia.

    Edit: GUYS PENNY JUST SAID "If we HOOF it, we should be able to beat him" :rainbowlaugh:

    Fan Fiction According to Tycho Brahe

    Not the astronomer, the web comic author (a.k.a. Jerry Holkins). He talks about fan fiction in today's Penny Arcade blogpost, and I thought it was worth sharing.

    … a little story? Brave to write it, all by itself, and then brave to show it. It is like opening your ribcage, and letting someone see the little bird you have inside. What if they don’t love the bird? It’s not like you can change it. I mean… That’s your bird.

I wrote the first draft of the epilogue of PONY Legacy today, after a burst of inspiration last night which I tapped madly into a note on my phone so I wouldn't forget it.

That makes it sound like the story's almost done, and I can emphatically and regretfully state that's not the case. While a good chunk of the last two chapters has been written for a while, and adding the epilogue rounds things off nicely, three of the chapters in the middle don't yet exist at all, and one or two others aren't done either.

Mind the gap.

However, I did want to let you faithful followers -- and I mean 'faithful' sincerely, as the first chapter of PONY Legacy was first published something like four years ago -- know that machinery is slowly grinding forward. I have a couple "personal project" goals for the summer, and one of them is getting PONY Legacy ready for publication. I've jerked you guys around long enough.

Now, I haven't changed the story's status because from a publishing standpoint it's still On Hiatus. I'm not going to release any new chapters until every chapter is done. Once they've had a chance to marinate, I'm going to go over the story beginning to end with a fine-toothed comb at least once on my own, and hopefully a couple more times with outside help. This is the fic that got me into writing ponyfic, and if I'm going to actually finish it, I'm damn well going to polish it to a shine.

When it's ready, I'll probably release it a chapter at a time on a set schedule (one a week?) starting, hopefully, sometime this fall. Whatever the schedule is, I'll do a double helping at the end, so the last chapter and epilogue will go up together; I'll have punished you enough with the penultimate chapter's cliffhanger, I think.

I hope you're still interested in Dash's in-System adventures, after all this time. I know I can't wait to tell you about them.

Until then,

EDIT: Fuck. Immediately after posting this, I wandered to Slashdot and the top story is that since Tomorrowland underperformed at the box office, Disney has cancelled TRON 3. I just... argh.

Oh wow, blast from the past and all that. Can't wait!

Great to hear! Might inspire me to work on that updated soundtrack.

#3 · 104w, 6h ago · 1 · ·

Glad to hear, cause Disney pulled the plug on Tron 3.

I look forward to read the next part of Rainbow, Celestia and Spark's adventure.

I've wondered off and on if anything would come of that; if not, I'll be including links to the soundtrack as-is with each chapter. Still tickled pink that the fic has a soundtrack!

I should probably redo the cover art to make Dash a zombie since the fic is more or less rising from the grave
