    Some major personal updates

    I'll get right to the point: I got a new job! :pinkiehappy:

    While I enjoyed my previous work, it was mostly thoughtless data entry and wasn't even close to full-time. I have clawed my way out of the welfare trap.

    Progress Report #2, and a Question

    Question first: Does anybody know what happened to Swift Blade Productions? I could've sworn when I trailed off that they were a rising audio reading channel. Now I can't even find them on YouTube. :rainbowderp:

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holliday

    I wish there was more I could say that I haven't said fifty times previously. I miss this place and wish I could be back to work on here. I hope you're all well.

    Howdy, all!

    I'm curious if anyone has plans for this Hallow's Eve. I don't have much worked out for it yet myself.

Heya! Looking for some ideas! · 1:54pm Mar 26th, 2016

Hello, all! I wanted to get around to asking while I still had the chance.

I'm looking to do a 200 subscriber special on my channel, but I really don't have many good ideas for it. :twilightsheepish: I already kinda did a Q&A, and I feel I should hold off on doing that again until another milestone.

:duck: My subscriber count has been hovering around 194 for a while now although it currently is at 193, and it will likely continue around there until I start getting back to making videos. I want to have an idea ready to go when (hopefully not "if") I do reach that point, though.

I think you should let loose and read some kind of bad fanfiction and make jokes about it and just generally don't try to be professional

I like it when people are unprofessional

3828287
Yeah, that works for a lot of people. I saw this one positively terrible fanfiction once and was tempted to read it, but you know, it kind of would invalidate the other things I've considered audio reading if I went out and did one that I knew was just terrible. It was so offensive and needlessly so, but also just terribly written, yet the guy honestly thought it was really good. I found it on dA. It also involved a group called Wu Tang, and I'm pretty sure any fan of them would be pretty put off by the story, too.

3828782
Trust me, this fiction did no justice to them. It was quite inane.

Do you exclusively only do dark-theme related fanfic readings?

3830367
Pretty much, although some of what I've done is tamer than the rest. Eternity and Dreams Fade were not terribly dark. I did do a couple of lighter things, though, like the Twilight Sparkle Pony Battle Rap and Gummy's monologue from Slice of Life. I also made a Brony version of the Navy Seal Copypasta and did a reading of that, so while my fan-fiction and channel's focus has been dark works from the beginning, I have aberrated from my main focus a few times.

3830375 Hmm I take it you're not a huge fan of comedy then... That's fine... hmm.. trying to think of some good darkfics you could potentially do. I really like some dark comedy fics though... would you consider that?

3832764
Oh, I love comedy. I just don't think I'm that funny to listen to. I did a little exchange that involved Undertale characters that was quite humorous (and contains no spoilers), and the original author thought I was pretty funny in my voicing, but it didn't float well in the Undertale group on here and also isn't doing as well as some of my other work. As for dark humor, it really depends. Some of Tom Lehrer's songs I can really get into, and they're hilariously dark satire, but other stuff, as you know, may rub me the wrong way.

3832781 Oh I gotcha. I might not be very qualified then to be suggesting ideas to you. :twilightsheepish:

3832794
Of course, if I felt qualified in discerning what people would want to see me do, I'd just do it. I know each can't speak for everybody, but at least if I knew what some people wanted to see from me, then I'd have a fair idea of what I ought to consider doing.

Well it hard to say what you should do, I don't follow you or your Youtube Channel I'm more into Let Plays then hearing someone reading a story. It just I like reading the story not hearing it, if you done a Q&A already then why not try something different? Or as one person I used to watched showed where he worked on his videos. :applejackunsure: It up to you.

3839923
That's okay. You're right; I ought to do something different than what I typically do for this. I just don't know for certain what I want to do. Hm. That's a thought. I don't get many questions on how I do what I do, though, and the whole process might be a little bit boring to watch. A friend of mine mentioned that I ought to include some special with bloopers, but I deleted my outtakes, so that's not possible. With whatever I do as a special, I just want to make sure it's something that somebody's going to want to see.
