    No updates for more than a year, oh my...

    Erm... I live?

    *sees glares*

    OK, I am sorry. Really.

    So here is the stuff:

    1) I have found to my displeasure that I need to go back to drawing board for the Western Wastelands arc in the "Fallout: Equestria Girls" story. I can churn out a chapter or two without doing that, and then I will have to rethink a number of things.

    Going on a vacation for 2 weeks

    Internet reception is not likely to be good, so I am basically offline; if I do happen to come around, it's not for long.

    Sorry everyone, was not able to update anything in time.

    Whelp

    I haven't seen "Forgotten Friendship" in full yet, but from what bits I saw on YouTube, my own headcanon got screwed (namely, that Sunset never got back to Equestria and never saw Princess Twilight and Princess Celestia until the events of Fallout: Equestria Girls).

    Expect some retcon. There won't be much, but Chapter 31 at least will have to be re-written a bit.

    Bad news, people...

    No, I am not cancelling any of my WIP stories. It's other things.

One-shot plot bunny: yay or nay? · 7:15pm May 24th, 2017

Recently I have gotten a comment on one of my stories, "Her Inner Demons", by KnightMysterio:

The way you wrote it, if Twilight hadn't become Midnight, then a more realistic... and more fatal... revenge scenario would have occurred.

This tidbit has gotten my brain gears suddenly working. I wrote in response:

You know, I just imagined an AU scenario where Sci-Twi just... flips off and does a school shooting in Crystal Prep Academy.

Hmm...

Hmmmmmmmm...

Actually...

...maybe I should do it once my load (both at work and in other things) lessens.

The only thing I currently have trouble imagining is the final straw that would cause Twilight to do so.

Yes, you got it right - a plot bunny for an AU story in Equestria Girls universe just popped up in my head where Sci-Twi starts a school shooting in Crystal Prep

Should I do it? :pinkiecrazy:

Umm... Dark. Interesting idea? Yes. Should you do it? I'm really not sure.

I remember a Steven King short story about the POV of a school shooter. I think it was chilling how it can still be applied to modern incidents.

Yes, but you might get put on a list.

What sort of list? Can legal problems arise from this if I write such a story?

Make it!:twilightangry2::twilightblush::pinkiecrazy:

I don't think it's a good idea. Too dark.

4546223 well, Americans are so "hair trigger" about issues like this, but personally i say go for it.
I doubt anything would actually happen to you.

well, Americans are so "hair trigger" about issues like this, but personally i say go for it.

Ah, I see. Well, yes, I am aware that this plot bunny, if published, carries a very high risk of controversy. School shootings are a touchy subject.

I doubt anything would actually happen to you.

Aside from mods possibly getting on my tail? :trollestia: After all, stories go through their approval (even though I am eligible for auto-publishing).

Thanks for explaining :twilightsmile:

Now THAT is what I call edgy.

I am neutral on this.

I really don't think Americans are quite so "hair trigger" as some seem to think. I'm an American, and I say if you want to write a story about a school shooting, go for it. Want to write a story about an attempted presidential assassination? Well, you'd better make sure everyone knows it's a fictional story, and not a set of publicly laid out plans, but start pounding those keys. Want to write a story where Vietnam, North Korea, and Germany team up and take over the good Ole U.S.A.? I'd read it.

Of course we do have a minority who are overly sensetive, and unfortunately they seem to be the loudest, but those are everywhere I suppose.

I say go for it. Besides, I've seen MUCH more controversial stories on this site, so I doubt you would have an issue with admits either.

4547517 Yeah, just reminding you to excise caution, as should anyone on a subject such as this.


4547680 Yeah, maybe "hair trigger" wasn't the exact phrase i was looking for, but i think it got the feeling across well.

Thank you for the reminder, I appreciate the sentiment :twilightsmile:

Thank you, everyone, for giving me your thoughts on this!

I have decided to give this project a go.

The main problem with writing a school shooting fic is more the fact that... Well, I'm PRETTY SURE the majority of FiM's fanbase is USA centric. And there is kind of the issue that in America... School shootings are... Way more common than they ever should be. After all, there's already been 3 in 2017 and there were 15 in 2016. I even had a school near me recently shut down for a day due to a school shooting threat that had been made to the campus.

I'm not saying you can't ever do a fic around such a premise, because that'd be like saying you shouldn't do fics about murder or rape just because they are very real things that happen, but you SHOULD be sensitive with the topic and treat it with the gravity and the respect it deserves, especially considering your audience. People have very instant, very negative reactions just to the TOPIC of such a thing being brought up, let alone seeing something actually go through with making it.

It's certainly your choice, but I do highly advise caution here. You're stepping into dangerous waters and I don't want to see you get hurt over it.

Yep, based on my observations, many of the fans on this site are from the US. And I am aware that school shootings are... well, more of a thing in America than in Russia. (Mostly, I suspect, because Russia does not allow handguns or anything shorter than 800 millimeters and it's not like you can smuggle a rifle or a shotgun into a school. And if someone does bring a gas or a traumatic pistol, chances of fatalities are still low.)

I'll try my best. I am not writing it "for the evulz", after all.

It's certainly your choice, but I do highly advise caution here.

Thank you; I have decided that I will write it, so I've made my choice.

You're stepping into dangerous waters and I don't want to see you get hurt over it.

I think this is the most dangerous minefield I'm stepping on. Then again, I like the challenge and I've wanted to write something dark for a while. Light fics are for the weak. :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

LOL, just kidding :trollestia:

As for getting hurt... I appreciate your concern. Thanks :twilightsmile:
