    It Started With An Idea

    This is something that I've had running around my head for the last month or so. It's not something overly complicated, but about half-way through writing down this synopsis, I realized this had more potential than as just a fan-fic story. Alter a few key facts, such as ponies being involved... and I may have something I could genuinely turn into a book to one day be published.

    Update Complete

    Alright, after god knows how long of me beating my head against the wall, I've finally updated Chapter 50 of Hero Souls: Awakening, so go ahead and give that a look and let me know how it fits.

    I tried to keep the entire exchange in Rarity's perspective, as well as have Celestia be more subtle and open regarding answering questions Rarity has. Hopefully you guys like this.

    Hero Souls Teaser

    Just thought I'd give you guys a bit of a teaser about some of the stuff I've put together for future Rainbow Dash content. This is also me showing proof I'm not just flinging empty promises at you when I say I'm working on the story. This takes place in the second story, The Legacy of Erised.

    Update

    I looked at my stories for the first time in a while, and realized I kinda left you guys hanging after the Hero Souls update. So I just wanted to sit down and take a moment to explain to you why I suddenly vanished off the face of the planet.

Soundtracks · 3:42pm Apr 17th, 2017

Two things.

1. I was rereading Hero Souls: Awakening when I noticed the link for The Color of Friendship took you to a dead video. I had intended to move the link to a non-dead video, and realized Youtube appears to be cracking down on the VividRed Operation Soundtrack. That means I have to either remove the track from my story since it can't be viewed, or add a different song. I have a few ideas, but I'm curious...

What do you guys think would fit for that scene? I'll leave the link so you have a reference point to when the song should start. Please try to stick to instrumental songs, as it's my experience that trying to read while someone's screaming in your ear is a tad difficult.

2. Does anyone even care that there are soundtracks to my stories? I add them because I think they're a cool way to pad the scene, but I know some people view the addition of soundtracks as an author's inability to properly novelize a scene. I just like making the stories seem more anime-ish.

If you want, I'll stop using the few soundtracks I post, but only if I get a rather significant vote to do so, at least 3/4ths of the votes saying to stop it. Voting ends by the next chapter posting, so a few days at least.

I personally am not against having soundtrack in the fanfiction, since your story is super heroes crossover. But you should not put too many and too often of it, since you should focus on how to express your story via letters not soundtrack. Plus, finding fitting soundtrack for your story may be harder than you think and it will inevitably cut down your writing time.

I say save the soundtracks for the vey important stuff. It can get a little distracting but it does help in the more important scenes.

I'd agree with those that say save the sound tracks for the REALLY important stuff. As was said before, it can be a little too distracting and it can be too hard to find appropriate soundtracks, but it CAN help with the more important scenes.
