    I'm sure a great many of you are purveyors of the fine arts. Writing, drawing, painting, singing, making music, whatever your flavour, I want to talk to you. People are going to tell you to study things that will get you a decent job, even if those things aren't in the direction you want to go. People will tell you that having dreams is nice and all, but you need to take the path of least

    Good lord!

    That's a lot of followers!

    In celebration of this crazy occasion, I'd like to ask for your opinions on something. A lot of people come to me for writing advice, and while I don't claim to be the most skilful writer, I do know some useful bits of general knowledge. Would anyone be interested in occasional blog posts where I address the most common problems budding writers encounter?

    Where is the next chapter?

    I'm not dead, nor have I been incapacitated. Every time I set a schedule, life makes it abundantly clear that it disapproves.
    My apologies for the lack of updates. I've been so frustrated with having no time or energy to write that I cut myself off from a few things, this site being one of them.

    University Days next chapter RESULTS

    The poll results are in and out of the 2,000+ readers, almost 300 voted. It's cool, I ignore blog posts too.

    Anyway, the decision has been made and the next chapter will cover the day before Octavia's birthday (AKA awkward snowy cuteness).

So you like TwiDash, do you? · 5:15am Oct 7th, 2012

My good mate and brilliant fellow writer Steel Resolve just published one! If you liked Candlelight, you'll love this. It's got all the awkward bookworm adorableness you know and love, plus his own unique style.

Check it out!

Love, Dawn

Is it just a coincedence that I've been seeing a ton of Twidash lately?

why yes i do love twidash; sadly i have already read it

Will do! Love your recommendations, they are always worth it.
Also, I have to do this, but, Uni Days?

No thanks :rainbowhuh::twilightangry2::pinkiesick::fluttershbad::applecry::unsuresweetie::facehoof::raritydespair::ajbemused:

407537 How can you possibly "love" such a retarded thing?

I was half-expecting you to talk about that "An interesting offer" story, which would have been downright creepy, as I'd finished reading it just seconds before getting this notification.

I'm happy you didn't, though, because that story honestly felt ripped off of Candlelight to a degree, and it was just far more poorly written.

There does seem to be quite a lot lately.

Thank you! Don't worry, it's coming soon ;)

Well... okay then.

In answer to your question....................


Already read! :trollestia:

407547 In response to that image: :pinkiesick::flutterrage::twilightangry2::rainbowderp::applejackconfused::fluttercry::applecry::unsuresweetie::facehoof::raritycry:

...You're a bit of an odd fellow.

407563 Just 'cause I abhor like-gendered shipping in cartoons like MLP? Whatever you say. :ajsleepy:

407539 how could i love such a retarded thing? well lets see. i love my mlpfim. i love reading stories about these ponies. I enjoy seeing these ponies happy. Romance generally involves two ponies becoming much happier, so logically one can conclude that happier ponies equals a happier me.

edit: ah so you're a narrow minded bigot

407566 You forgot to account for "like-gendered shipping." :pinkiesick:

Each to their own, just don't troll my blog posts.

It was more about the flood of emoticons in both of your responses. Literally abhorring homosexual ships in anything is kind of odd, too, I guess, but whatever. You said it, though, not me.

407574 As I'm not taking pleasure from this I'd hardly call it "trolling" but by your request I will cease and desist. :pinkiesad2:

407577 It's not like I oppose RL relationships that involve like-gendered couples, just the idea of it being brought into fictional media that isn't written in by the creators themselves.

Next time you should probably lead with that so I don't mistake you for a troll :P

That's still odd. I mean, why just homosexual pairings, and not heterosexual? The two are mutually non-canon in almost every case.

407588 Fine, sorry that things were unclear.

407589 Because heterosexual love feels more believable to me than if it's homo. I'm not sure how to elaborate on this any further.

But... Sorry, but that really doesn't make sense to me, especially in this fandom. Almost every single male character in the show doesn't even come close to being as well-developed and characterized as the female characters. A tendency towards homosexuality was purely inevitable.

And the believability of the shipping in any given story depends not on the genders of the characters involved, but the skill of the author, the premise of the story, and your own personal beliefs regarding actual heterosexual/homosexual/bisexual/pansexual love.

407604 I literally have no idea what that means... :derpyderp1::twilightoops:

407606 I honestly do not care about either statement, I will only ever support hetero pairings/shipping and that is that. :moustache::eeyup:

It was in my RiL list before I got here, but after this blog post, it's the first thing I'm going to read next :pinkiehappy:


Αν το μωρό έχει δεξαμενή σε παράδεισο skywards χόρτο.


407635 Either be straight with me just once or I don't continue.


I apologize, just thought it might be funny to do :trollestia:.

At any-rate in all seriousness (to your comment off my original) dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Twilight_Sparkle.png we all got our own tastes.

407656 I would hardly call any of that "funny" but you're right, we all should be respectful of other's likes and whatnot a little more. :twilightsheepish:

Quite. That means no more blindly responding to posts about what other people like with a series of emoticons that express your personal disgust, yes? And no more calling what other people like "retarded", either. I assure you, that's why you were taken to be a troll.

407683 I realise that to be the case and, if nothing else, I may not have to post on here anymore after it all.

It's... not... long... enough...

Need more Shipping! :twilightoops:


It seems authors are finally realizing how much everyone and their mother loves Twidash. :pinkiehappy:

407689 The inner workings of your mind are an enigma.

407827 Except this one. The word is "machinations" not "workings".

407829 In the original episode: The word used was workings, it was soon after changed, for the comedic value of a lesser intelligence having more intelligence.

407830 I'm not likely to have known that, am I? :facehoof:

407833 Well, uh.

Well, I'm not a big fan of TwiDash, but anything that can stay featured that long which has been written by you is probably good enough to read anyway.

Both felt similar. But still a bit different. Both great!

Not my preferred ship, but I'll give it a shot. It does sound adorable.


From what I can tell, I seems that Twidash is one of the easiest parings to do "right." My personal favorite pairing is still Flutterdash, but I've seen maybe one or two Flutterdash stories that I would consider pretty good, whereas I could probably name half a dozen good-quality Twidash fics off the top of my head. It probably says something about the pairing when the average quality of the fics is, as far as I can see, a fair bit higher than most others. Then again, it's entirely possible it's just me.

'Twas a good story!

Don't think the word like covers it. Ever since I first read the pairing I haven't been able to stop reading it. It's everything I've ever wanted in a romance. I'm pretty happy that there's been a sudden influx lately of fics for it. This one included, which by the way was pretty good. Thanks for the heads up.

I just added that to my read later list, and then I noticed this! :D


Sounds like someone's a homophobe, hmm?

PS: No offence! :3

408263 :facehoof: Have I not already said that I'm NOT opposed to REAL LIFE like-gendered couples but JUST LIKE-GENDERED SHIPPING!!! :twilightangry2::flutterrage:

actually i prefer twishy
