    But you said... (take it with a grain of salt)

    Yeah, I know what I said, but before you hang me, hear me.

    Deleting another story

    Gonna keep this short because I don't care for this particular story enough and I know well enough that neither do you.

    I will be deleting A Song of Angels from my library at my discretion of course. The artwork as done by Turbopower1000 will still be available on his Deviantart, considering that the artwork is probably plastered over the internet, having them deleted wouldn't matter at all.

    Please, stay home.

    Words cannot begin to describe my sincerest wish that everybody be safe during this trying time.

    COVID-19 is like wildfire and the kindling is laid bare for it to catch. If you can help it, please, look out for yourselves. Stay at home, avoid as much social contact with people as you can, help stop this thing. If you have to go outside, pack some sanitizer, gloves, mask. But don't linger.

    Officially Cancelled

    Oh boy... this isn't an easy one.

    We all know this story, we all adore this story, and we will remember this story however we like.
    Not sure how I like to remember it myself. Perhaps one day I may revisit the story without the Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls elements, but that is a long ways off.

Why I'm unwilling to fix Tears in the Snow. · 4:31pm Jul 13th, 2016

So having just edited the authors notes on chapter one of Tears in the Snow, as well as spying a comment I read a few weeks ago saying I should fix it up, I figured I might was well offer some explanation of why I'm less than thrilled with the idea of fixing Tears in the Snow.

Tears in the Snow is my second most liked story, having been beaten by A Mothers Warmth since its release, it is also my second story on this site and that is less than flattering for this fic which everyone knew was bad yet gave it a chance to my joy and childlike naivete. If one were to remove the "It's a Nyx/Snowdrop fic!" goggles and read through the story again as if it were just another fic, one will clearly see that the story was written terribly, it's unedited and is quite amateurish.

So why don't I want to fix it? Well it's because I wouldn't get very far. I struggle like an animal in a bear trap with rewrites and re-edits, especially when it comes to changing an entire chapter, and with all of the mess I've made with Tears in the Snow before chapter eleven, fixing it for me might as well be a living nightmare. The idea of fixing it may be a good one if I wasn't easily distracted, or if I didn't procrastinate, and if I had an editor who would be willing to help fixing twelve chapters and one thousand eight hundred and forty two words, and I'm sure that even Kirito-Persona would be willing to devote time to a demanding editing regime that would come out of Tears in the Snow.

While I don't want to leave Tears in the Snow a mess of a fic the way it is, I can't do much since I'm wrapped up with other things, all of them but one of which are Nyx related.

Do not mistake my stance on re-editing and rewriting the fic to be ill of heart, I'm overjoyed, even to this day, that people still enjoyed the story, regardless of its faults and flaws. :twilightsmile:

some fics should just be left how they are.
