    The Children of Planet Earth - Equestrian Dialogue Translations

    I've written a lot of Equestrian dialogue in this story, but never bothered to translate it in the story itself. I wanted to leave it a mystery for the reader -- and besides, from my experimentation I found in-story translations to be rather tacky. But now that it's complete (including the paper explaining the phonology, grammar, and so forth), I think it's high time to pull the curtains back and

    With Humility and Hope

    First, I'd like to open this blogpost by reminding you that Fimfiction's development started ten years ago on this very day. Feel old yet?

    That said. . . .

    An Open Letter

    For almost seven years, I've wanted to write a particular fanfiction. I've gravitated to similar stories, but they all have their own shortcomings. Even the classics and the most technically adept have their flaws in one specific department -- which motivates me all the more.

Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus! · 7:46pm Dec 25th, 2015

. . . whichever holiday you intend to celebrate. I've listed all the ones I know. (At least I don't sell red cups.)

For simplicity's sake, though, I'll go with the first one of these. Merry Christmas!

Sent out as a postcard by Julian Yeo to his loved ones, and to those who "surrendered their mailing address". Source

In case you were wondering about my progress on The Blue Rose, I'll have you know that I was working on something completely different.

Back in September, my friend sunnypack offered to do a sort of writing game. I would write a paragraph, he'd write a paragraph, and so forth, until a story was produced. Clearly requires a Random tag, since anything can happen when you're separated by five hours of time zones (seven on daylight-savings time) and this puddle called the Pacific Ocean.

I've submitted it last night, but it appears all the Fimfiction staff is taking a break from approving stories (they're all involved-- even Knighty, from what I've heard). So don't expect it for a little while. But when it does come out, I'll update this blog post accordingly. Check back often.

UPDATE: Due to some disagreement with sunnypack, I've revoked it from the submission queue. I'm very sorry.
UPDATE 2: In its stead, I will be submitting The Greatest Archæological Find. I know you haven't been demanding it a lot, but I wanted to get something out there this Christmas-- mainly to show you guys that I'm still alive and kicking.
UPDATE 3: After a thorough rewrite, I have reversed this decision. My collab story is now in the queue, instead of The Greatest Archæological Find.
UPDATE 4: Thanks to Meeester, it's out and about!

Canto III of The Blue Rose should ideally come out before 4 January, but it might not. I certainly hope so, though.

In the meantime, have some Christmas-related stuff:

More winter-related than anything else, but oh well. This one's for you, Elusive Element. Source

Best horse in her human form looks really lovely. Oh, and Rainbow Dash is here too. Source

Dating back to 2014. There's still a Golden Oak Library. How? I blame Discord. Source

Starlight Glimmer's redemption may have been incorrectly handled (Seriously, Twilight, grow some balls and punish her!), but it still makes for a heartwarming scene. Source

Perhaps some music?

Ah hell, why not the whole album!?

And I certainly couldn't forget this one!

Well, that's all I've got right now. As I've said, I'll let you know when my next story comes out. But until then, dear reader.

Merry Christmas!

Good night, and good luck.

It's Χριστούγεννα in Greek.

I thought it was ☧ in Greek.

But oh well, what do I know about the Hellenic branch?

A very merry Christmas to you as well my friend. :)

3642602 What? I don't follow.

Y'know. . . chi rho? X P? It stands for Jesus Christ in many Christian Orthodox places. . . oh never mind.

3642829 Oh yea that's true I suppose. I just didn't remember.
