    Update (Without excuses this time!)

    Guess what? I'm done writing the next chapter of Manifesto.

    I just need to give my prereaders a day or two to look over it, and then it'll go up.

    Until then, here's Despacito being played on a guzheng.

    Hey, everyone.

    I've somehow gotten out of the habit of posting updates. Oops.

    Anyway, you've no doubt noticed that I don't post as often as I once did in the past. This is largely because improvements in my life situation mean I have the wherewithal to engage in hobbies other than writing fanfiction.

    Update.

    Goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it? You're probably wondering why my pace has slowed down on Manifesto. Well, there are several reasons, but the most relevant one is that I find myself rewriting large swaths of this chapter as I zero in on the best plan for Sunset to take. I'm basically going back and forth between two ideas that can't really be combined into a single one, and for

    New Story Incoming

    In case you missed my last blog post, I'm taking a break from the adventures of Celestia and Daring Do to write the next Petriculture story. At this point it looks like it'll be fairly short -- about two chapters long -- and I recently finished up the first chapter, which will be posted once my prereaders give it a final once-over.

Hey, everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I've been plugging away at a new story, though I'm not sure when the first chapter will be ready yet. For whatever reason, I decided that there weren't enough adventure stories where Celestia actually did something (and those that did were usually set in the distant past, before Luna was corrupted into Nightmare Moon). For some insane reason, I decided I should rectify the situation and write an adventure story featuring Celestia that takes place before Nightmare Moon's return. I suspect that I will have problems similar to those of writing good Superman comics. I have no idea I'll be able to succeed, but I suppose that's the point of challenging yourself in the first place.

That sounds cool. :D If you want good Celestia-doing-things adventures, there's always Eclipse by 8686.

I'll be honest, this doesn't sound interesting to me. If you were doing it during the show's timeline you could do some interesting things with the interactions between Celestia and the girls, but setting it earlier means it is really just Celestia and you run into the Superman problem you mentioned. You might be able to do something interesting with Sunset, but that would probably turn it into a Sunset story instead of a Celestia story and kills it another way.
