    Back here, for the last time maybe

    I didn't even know if this account even existed anymore, but at least I wanted to thank my subscribers, few as they are. If you guys are still around, I love you. Writing was a coping mechanism for me that slowly became a sort of job and it was thanks to you. I loved the show for what it was, despised the finale (sorry guys), but I loved the community for what it was. Once again, thank you for

    Hello from the other side

    Worry not, I'm not dead. Just sleeping. So, I heard just now the show is coming back in April and...I don't care about it. Yeah, Season Six while it had a few good episodes it kinda burned me out on the show. I'll keep writing (Something, maybe) but I don't think I will follow it. Many, many writers I follow are of the same sentiment and while I may hear something interesting happening in the

    Because that means tempting fate and 2016 isn't over yet.

    *Taps on mic* Is this thing on?

    I'm not dead, guys. I'm just slumbering. Kinda like Cthulhu but prettier. I'm so absorbed by FFXV that I lsot track of time. Anyways, let us talk about things: First of all, two new fics coming. Yay! Second of all, working on my doctorate thesis! Double yay! Third of all, I've started a campaign to gather funds in my hometown for a shelter for LGBT people because, and don't worry I won't get

Where the Apple Lies Review and Spoiler · 4:06pm Oct 8th, 2016

...

I just don't know what to say about this.

Listen, I enjoy the Apple Family: I think they are good characters and all. I enjoy stories about them just like the next guy but this time this episode left me a bad taste in my mouth. The atmosphere of the episode was simply awkard and weird and the jokes were all building up to a payoff that never came. Maybe it's just my expectations that were too high but it's not a good comedy of errors when everyone forgot what the errors were. Maybe I just can't wrap my head around with Applejack being a terrible liar, the opposite of what she is: I would've accepted it for comedy value, of course. I did it in several occasions with several characters but those times were for comedy while this one simply felt...Off. Also, Derpy in the hospital...Should I laugh at this? The reason behind her eyes was a terrible accident? Do I have to imagine one of the sweetest ponies ever being in a terrible accident? Tell me if you felt that way as well. I'm open for debate. One thing I did like was Big Mac's character arc. I can accept he was a talkative know it all once. He's a sensitive and responsible fellow and we all know no one is born like that.

She has been seen in "Cart Before Ponies" younger and still with Wall eyes, perhaps she was in hospital in the vain attempt to fix it?
