    As you may have noticed...

    ...I've not been on FIMFiction for a few months. Actually, I've not been online at all. I've been taking a break from my internet existence, although I didn't really make a conscious decision to do so. Things just seemed to work out that way. Maybe finishing Much Ahoof took it out of me?

    Final part of Much Ahoof uploaded! + work on part two of Wine for Two has begun

    SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry about the wait - I've been in self-imposed exile from the internet until I got my life in order.

    Well, okay - I told a little fib. It's not the final part... there's a short epilogue as well! Expect it anon.

    There will be a Part 9 of Much Ahoof, + an Epilogue!

    Hi everyone! :pinkiehappy:

    I noticed that there's been a little confusion about a comment I made under Part 8 of Much Ahoof About Nothing. There WILL be a Part 9 and then a much-shorter Epilogue after that to bring everything to an appropriate close.

    Much Ahoof Part 8 coming in a day or two...

    It's been sent to my lovely proofreaders/friends/cronies and I should be able to upload it in a day or two. There'll be a Part 9 and then an epilogue as well... it seems the more I edit, the more I write, which is a very, very bad habit indeed.

    Sorry about the delay, but real life has been making demands from me recently. I'm also stressed out of my gourd!

    The League of Extraordinary Gentlecolts + one Gentlefilly

    Hi everyone!

    By now, you'll all have realised I was in on that little project where I was paired with the most excellent Obselesence: both of us wrote stories and uploaded each other's to see what would happen.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlecolts + one Gentlefilly · 9:40am Aug 7th, 2012

Hi everyone!

By now, you'll all have realised I was in on that little project where I was paired with the most excellent Obselesence: both of us wrote stories and uploaded each other's to see what would happen.

First of all, the reason I joined in on this was not because I wanted to trick people. The reason? I was curious! I wanted to see if people could spot my writing style; if people would react differently to a story which was SAD rather than SHIPPING and so on. I found the results pretty interesting.

I loved Obselesence's story, didn't you? There was something so hard to define - a melancholy feeling that I've never been able to capture in my own writing. My stories are always WHAM BANG BIG EMOTIONS kinda deals, but Obselesence is the master of something I struggle to achieve myself - subtlety, Also, his Steven Magnet was amazingly well written.

I hope everyone enjoyed both of our stories: Obselesence's Into the Everfree and my own Fluttershy's Infernal Adventure. If you missed one, jump in and read it RIGHT NOW!

Also, the last part of Much Ahoof is about a week away. Sorry to keep you all waiting!

I think I'm the only person who missed the entire thing, stories and all. :applejackconfused:

There is an odd lack of comments... :rainbowderp: I expected more.

274985 Nope.

Thanks for joining in, was great having you on board!

"There is an odd lack of comments... I expected more."
this is what; the 8th blog post on this or something...

I enjoyed this experiment quite a bit. I think it made its point about people liking stories because they are written by a popular author, at least in my mind. For instance, if Obselesence had posted Into The Everfree himself, I don't even think I would have read it. It has a Sad tag, and I very rarely read sad stories; I simply dislike feeling sad because of a story, but I'll give it a chance if I enjoy the author. But, since it was posted by you, I gave it a chance, and ended up enjoying it quite a bit. I figured it was just you trying out something new, but I never could have expected that it was by a completely different author. And of course, I didn't even read Fluttershy's Infernal Adventure until the whole LOEG thing was revealed, because I had never even heard of Obselesence. It's definitely interesting to see which stories became popular, and which didn't.

Oh, and I can't wait for the finale of Much Ahoof :pinkiehappy:

It's not just you two; I'm not sure if I should feel disappointed that I missed it or not-sad that I'm not the only one.

I knew something was up when I saw the sad tag. Clever experiment indeed...

This was a very well put together experiment, too bad all of the stories involved are in my RILL (read it later list) with about another 130+ stories...

Gah! Damn! Spoiler!

Mine might be at least that big, if I hadn't decided to go through and actually read most of mine about a month ago.

You know what you have to do...

Ignore it, that's what it's there for.

276366 Oh, 502. I see what you did there :trixieshiftleft:

miss sundae, is this a real group?
