    I want everyone to be proud of me

    Even though the story I just posted -- Applejack Is an Alicorn Now, I Guess? -- is nothing but 3.5 thousand words of bad jokes, references and inanities, I started writing it the day I posted The Marchioness and the Urchin, and I actually followed through on completing it instead of falling into a deep depression for two months like I usually do. :)

    Present Perfect vs. Looking Glass

    I'm sure you're all sick of seeing blogs that start with these words, but it's the year 2020 — and I have no idea what successful ponyfiction looks like anymore.

    Fic recs, August 7th: iisaw edition!

    Starting this blog off with sad news, I'm afraid: Warren Hutch, author of Windfall and the Screwball series, apparently passed away earlier this year. :( Thanks to Jake the Army Guy for figuring this out for us.

    Hard to transition out of that kind of thing. :(

    Notes on the Marchioness and the Urchin

    It's funny to think that this story begins with me getting involved in a popular D&D Youtube channel last year. It's just a quirky place to start. Well, that and a global pandemic.

Something I did! · 12:46am Mar 8th, 2017

Behold! From April of last year, it's chapter 52 of VisualPony's Project Horizons audiobook, featuring my debut as the villainous (and adorable) Steel Rain, around the 1 hour mark! :D Oh god I sound so bad help D: I don't know how many chapters he's in -- VP did a good job keeping me in the dark about what, exactly, my lines applied to, on my request -- but there'll be some more of him, so I wanted to make a note of it here.

I also wanted to make a note of what happens around time stamp 1:34:20. A fight has just broken out, there's some unexpected resistance, and you can hear a certain rather upset pony in the background.

As I recall, VisualPony asked me for some ad-libbed swearing. I still have the original audio file, so I'm sure of how I went about it. Not knowing the context, I recorded some standard pony swears -- horseapples, ponyfeathers -- some original oaths -- "Luna take it!" -- and then...

Then I quoted Littlepip. And I immediately said no, don't use that, I'm just being silly.

Well, guess which line he used.

So that happened. XD

(But props to ChaoticSeven and a guy named Vladimir Zharkov for their roles. They're way better than me. :B)

dang it only now I realize from where I know your nick
From VP credits after those chapters!
So you dont want to know how far VP is with this work or did I misunderstood that line ?

I remember reading your comment in Horizons about that... I was wondering what character it was for, and now I know.

Will you post the original file... it might be funny hearing your "takes."

No, he's almost done. He's got like, one more chapter left, I think?

I wanted to avoid spoilers, so I dunno what chapters Steel Rain appears in. :V

If I had a way to make videos right now, I'd consider uploading bloopers to my Youtube channel. Assuming VisualPony hasn't done any himself. :)

4447499 Oh sorry to hear that... the lack of ways to upload. I hope it gets fixed, whatever the problem is. ^^

I'm on the road to it. :)

... some may suggest that you're typecast. :pinkiehappy:

From what I could find, Steel Rain made his appearance at 1:11:30 - wow. I went there to get a sample of your VA work, but... the production made me follow the channel! EXCELLENT work, PP. I am very impressed!

Hey, the production's all VisualPony's doing. :B Glad he impressed you though!

Well yes, of course. However, you played an excellent part in the production and that deserves some sort of recognition. SO THERE. Ha.

4447499
Ah so yeah I misunderstood...
Anyway it depends on if you take that story for patrons or for free
For patrons it is out already I think, for normal people it is in chapter 74
Now Im not sure but 78 or 79 is last and then epilogue

I can't keep track. :B

anyway I wanted to say that I'm not sure if I like his voice

on the one hoof it is pretty good job with him, on the other I imagined him absolutely different when I read the story (you know that moment when you read book and in movie the actor does not fit your imagination :-) )

still not bad job on itself, and definitely much better than I would do because I never done anything like it tough i would love to.

what I find most interesting tough is that there seems to be a group of people here on fim-fic that i discoverd from various sources and those people seems to be connected (both comments, prereading, responses, and and they seems to know each other)
if you take the size of this size it is pretty amamzing

Man, it's so weird listening to these with VAs besides VP, but you guys sound great! And it's very nice that he brought you and the rest in for that: I appreciate the work he does with his own performance and the production, but 2+ hour chapters of all one voice can get a bit monotonous even with a good reader and production.

4447664
77 + ep, but 75 is split in two, so five videos left to release.

4448059 well you are better informed than me than.
I was Wondering about being his patron but I already support two people / groups and simply dont have more to spend right now.
