    With Strange Aeons

    Hello everyone, I'm back at it, publishing a new chapter, ending the hiatus on CCLXXVII, just in time to fulfil my promise of a 2019 release—wait, it's 2020 now? It's August already? Uh, quick, look at this distraction from my failure to keep deadlines and stuff.

    The Sad Sad State of Affairs

    Those of you who've been following Ducenti Septuaginta Septem (CCLXXVII for short) for a while will have noticed that I try to post a chapter at least once every year.

    Speculation and Apex Artillery: All of This Fun

    How does Luna not know what fun is?
    This is what a lot of us asked when they first watched Luna Eclipsed (S02E04) and Luna asked Applejack " Fun? What is this fun thou speakest of?"

    Better Late Than Never, I Suppose

    As of now, I have Chapter Fourteen done; not as early as I would have liked, but not as late as I might have feared. I could have managed to post it in July, however, a few things got in the way that had me otherwise preoccupied.

    I forgot I had this.

    Basically, the earlier drafts of Chapter Eleven included a jolly little musical number performed by Theory. Maybe not what you might expect from a mind-bending aberration, but, hey, the story also has Discord. Like a few other things, the song didn't end up making it in, but I did actually write some lyrics for it. And since I just rediscovered those and think they're actually not all bad, I

Toot toot. All aboard the HMS Relationship! · 12:38am Oct 10th, 2016

I must confess, I never really understood shipping.

Romance, yes. Love is wonderful, cuddly lovey-dovey pairs are cute, and romantic relationship can provide perfect set-ups for drama and conflict. So, I do get romance.

But deciding that two characters, who possibly never had any meaningful interaction, who possibly don't even know each other, should definitely be an item? Sure, some characters fit well together because they have things in common (e.g. Applejack and Rainbow Dash), some character interactions can be fun and compelling (e.g. Discord and Twilight), and I get that love is a fickle thing, but... why?
Never understood that one, really, until... well, until it happened to me.

I just happened to think of two characters I really like, from two different continuities no less, whilst imagining what a crossover between their worlds might look like, when suddenly, it clicked. Just like that. The two just worked.
It was like love on first sight, only it wasn't first sight and nobody involved was looking at anyone, or even real to begin with. It just seemed crystal clear to me that those two would make a glorious, adorable, romantic pairing, nevermind the circumstances.
Those two simply seemed destined to cuddle. I'd ship them.

And now, I think, I understand why shippers ship. I still think they are crazy, though.

Have a nice day, everyone.

P.S.: In case you wanted to know, those two characters in question that I ship are Bill Cipher and Xel'lotath. I don't think I've seen that one yet.
