    Someone's ripping off my story, lol...

    Hey guys, long time no see. Before anyone asks, no I don't think I'll ever write the sequel I mentioned a few years ago, that is, unless I win the lottery or one of you wants to repay my student loans and all my bills, haha...

    Job interviews!

    I realize most of you probably don't care, but I just got some good news that I'm pretty stoked about...

    I found out Cisco, (the networking hardware company), is interviewing me for a full-time position tomorrow!

    ...And now a word from our sponsors...

    Do me a quick favor and check out my friend Shira's new story: Hearts, Hooves, and Hands .

    In case you don't remember, Shira is the guy who helped me with my last story.

    I'm still slowly trudging along with the outline for my followup, but in the meantime, go check out Shira's work!

    IT BEGINS

    I'm writing an outline for something. Nothing good can come of this.

    Also, disregard my last blog post. I just don't have the time or BAC to complete that challenge. Sorry if I let anyone down in that regard.

Proofreaders? · 12:15am Aug 9th, 2012

I've got the last parts of the story done. They're written, and ready to go, and have been for about a few weeks now. The final chapter is like 25K-26K. The epilogue is only about 5K-6K.

I've already gotten the last chapter proofread, but I could really use a second set of eyes on the epilogue. My usual proofreader has been understandably and incredibly busy as of late, but I'd really like to get this stuff posted before I get too busy moving back to school.

I'm hitting the road back to university this weekend, and then I've got several days in which I'll be busy getting ready to move into my new place at school. Bottom line, I'd like to see this story published and finished before I get too caught up in moving and such.

Mostly, I'd just like for someone to read over the epilogue and see if there are any glaringly stupid plot points that I need to change/fix, if anyone is out of character, you know, stuff like that. I'm pretty good with grammar and spelling mistakes, but of course if you happen to see any, please do point them out.

The final "chapter" is already more or less ready to go, but in order for the epilogue to make sense, obviously, I'll let you go ahead and read that beforehand, as well. Criticism on it is welcome too, but I really just want someone to look over the epilogue.

So, basically, comment or drop me a message if you wouldn't mind helping me out. You'll be getting to read this before almost anyone else who's been following it, and you'll be helping me make the story better!

As I've said several times before, terribly sorry for the wait.

Lay it on me. You want a list of any errors, or you want 'em corrected?

Alright, PM me your email address and I'll share the GDoc with you. If you'll just point out anything that sticks out as contrived, etc etc, I prefer fixing them myself. I like using Google Docs because you can add comments right alongside the page.

But like I said in the post, I'm not too concerned with grammar/spelling, just "stupid writer tricks" lol. I'm usually pretty good with grammar/spelling. Shira actually rarely corrected me on stuff like that, his major contribution was in helping me avoid cliches and such.

Anyway, thanks!

Hey the_panic,

I'm so glad that you got the next chapter ready to go, it seems that school and life is really getting in your way. But that doesn't matter anymore, you finish one chapter though and damn, about 24 thousand words!? This is gonna be the longest chapter that I will ever read after this is published.

Also, you don't need to be sorry, well, of course we waited so long for next chapter to find out what the heck is going to happen between the couple. So there it is, it's done and it's longer than any other chapter that you have ever written in your own account. You should feel very proud of yourself. :twilightsmile:

Anyway, thank you for uploading this blog to let your fans know what you have done, it's been a long time since you've got in touch with us. Stay fresh and don't give up. Oh, and good luck on your university classes.

P.S. I'm a bit sure if this ever bother to you, but in case if you don't know me.
I am the one who helped you proofread on Ch. 8 of your story by only two misspelled words, you know? 'wear' instead of 'where', and 'ponyville' without capitalization.:twilightblush:
The reason I did this because I wanted to get rid of the mistakes on your story, to make everything look perfect as possible. So yeah, I'm happy that you've fixed that.

Thank you for reading this and I'll see you in the next chapter, my friend.

Derp, just realized I forgot to hit "reply" when I made that comment.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

I'm actually still at my internship, moving out of here this weekend, though. And thanks, definitely looking forward to getting back to school. New England is... Not my favorite place.

You can say the reason why there's a delay. I greatly apologize about it but breaking up with my Fiance has really messed up my creative abilities for the time being, including editing. I'm so sorry :fluttercry:

Hey don't sweat it man, I definitely don't hold it against you at all. You don't have to apologize. I'm sure if I were in a similar position, the last thing I would be worrying about was MLP fan fiction being written by some dude I knew on the Internet. It's not a big deal, seriously.

You do what you gotta do to take care of yourself, and if you feel like you want to work on any stories with me in the future, (whether its me editing your stuff or vice versa), you know how to get in touch with me. I've had a lot of fun working with you on my little project here, just so you know.

As for me saying your reasoning, I prefer to let others break their own news, if they even want to. Some people can be touchy about that, you know?

If you still happen to need one I'm free for it, if not then just let me know when its ready!

MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMMEMMMMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm getting back early (today) from my vacation and have more time! YAY!!! :yay:
