    Endings is closed.

    The story submission folder has been closed.

    If you submitted the story to the site and forgot to add it to the folder, pm me.

    If you're one of the new authors who's stories still need manual approval, don't worry, we'll get it taken care of in the morning.

    Go read my vanity entry to the contest.

    It's September.

    Two weeks remain for the deadline to the Sunset Shipping Contest. We're at 13 entries so far, and I know a lot of people are still hard at work.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer, and wish you all the best of luck on getting your entry in.

    Also, I've been working on a vanity entry to the contest myself, which should be ready shortly for your reading perusal.

Joining this whole new years blog thing · 5:01am Jan 1st, 2016

Welp, it's been a hell of a year, folks.

This time last year I had just finished writing my magnum opus, The Heart of an Author, and was 20k words into writing my other Magnum Opus, Fractured Sunlight.

Now, a year later, and maybe 150k words or so later, I've gotten hundreds more followers, and many horsepoints to boot. Fractured Sunlight made exactly the kind of huge splash I knew it would when I started. Thank you all for reading it, and hope you will enjoy what's left to come in 2016.

Incidentally, I spent upwards of $400 on fanfic art and fanfic art accessories in 2015.

Now, you've probably already seen the horsewords I've published on fimfiction, (And if you haven't, go read them, obviously) but what you may not know is that I actually participate in the monthly writeoff competitions. I've written a lot of short stories and minifics that for various reasons, I've chosen not to publish on fimfiction. Yet.

Here's a list. You may see some of these on fimfiction someday, but I am incredibly lazy.

A Bad Case of the Mondays
Applejack wallows drunkenly in a bar, because the responsibilities of being in charge of everything get to her, and sometimes she just wants to wallow. Rarity comes to cheer her up, and share in the wallowing.

Behind You.
A poem about a monster in the woods meant to scare children. (I'm not very good at poetry.

Ceci N'est Pas Twilight Sparkle
Twilight Sparkle awakes alone in the void, where a strange voice asks her to solve a murder mystery. Things get metafictional.

Unnamed Displaced Fic((Unfinished)
Detective Dick Graves is hired to investigate a string of strange disappearances in conventions across the country. Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle is appointed as head of a task force to discover why dead humans keep showing up in the Everfree Forest. When one human is discovered still barely alive, worlds will collide in a race to the truth, before whoever is doing this claims their next victim.

Green Night Trio
Discord, Fluttershy, and Tree Hugger go to White Castle.

Love Twiangles 2: SunShyne Boogaloo
I swear I'm still working on this.

Neigh Retorting
Pinkie Pie and Scootaloo perform Manzai standup comedy together.

No Need to Sugarcoat It
Sugarcoat finds a crying Twilight Sparkle in the bathroom, and dispenses some harsh life advice.

Some Door's Aren't Meant For You
After a night of carousing, the Mane 6 hear a rumor about a secret door in the palace that Celestia is seen entering and exiting occasionally, and they begin to speculate on what could be inside.

Sunset's Rest
In a world destroyed, the veteran hero Sunset Shimmer runs a bar, open to all. A mysterious traveler arrives, asking questions about the past, and how Sunset was involved in the apocalypse.

The Battle for Everypony's Souls
Basically just the ending to Persona 3 in 750 words or less.

The Dumb One
Sweetie Belle worries that she's stupid, Rarity consoles her.

Thirty Seconds
Eh, I'mma keep this one close to the chest for now, I have plans.

Unnamed Humanized Twishy Clopfic erotica
I still need to polish this up, but coming soon to an alternate account near you!

And a few non pony writings as well.

Fultoned Away (Unfinished) (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain / Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)
Big Boss is given a mission to infiltrate the remote Japanese village of Hinamizawa, and find out what the deal is with their local parasite, and what interest Cipher has in the region.

Sacrifice (Life is Strange)
An alternate possibility to the ending of Life is Strange

Down Home Country Lesbians Pleasure in the Job Puts Perfection in the Work ("Original")

A city girl named Sunset Shimmer Ashley accepts a job as a farm hand under the watchful eye of Applejack Sam and is touched by the warmth and togetherness of the folks that live there. They fall in lesbians with each other. (I still want to re-ponyfy this one.)

Phew. That's a lot of stories.

If you really want to read some of them, you can track down many of the first draft versions on the writeoff site, though you're on your own. For various reasons, they're not up to my standards for publishing, so seek out at your own risk.

Anyway, I plan to write plenty more this year. Let's see what 2016 holds for us all!

Those all sound good. But Love Twiangles 2? yay.

TwiShy...that's an odd pairing these days.
