    New chapter is entering revision phase. As per my last blog post, please use spoiler tags where appropriate.

    Also buckle up. It's going to be a wild ride.

    Concerning Spoilers

    I would like to remind readers of Equestrian Horizon that spoilers in comments should be covered with the requisite markup tags or avoided in the first place. This will be relevant now more than ever. Just saying.

    Defect

    Things I discovered writing this piece:

    • I suck at naming stories and chapters.
    • I suck at writing synposes.
    • I cannot post pieces to FiMFiction without titles or synposes, so my terrible ones will have to suffice.
    • I only have a partial idea of how to write Tempest, but also a desire to do so which is infuriating.

    I'm not dead

    So I got sucked into Final Fantasy XIV and left Equestrian Horizon to languish unfinished. Then my computer died.

    All data is safely backed up on separate drives or in the cloud but I am sans gaming rig for the time being. I am still going to attempt to finish EH by the end of the year. The next chapter, Ouroboros, is done and currently in the proofing and revision phase.

    Onward.

A short detour · 8:56pm Nov 4th, 2017

Took another detour before heading back in on Equestrian Horizon.

I had a discussion with one of my friends about writing for and roleplaying powerful characters and I'd forgotten how much fun it was. Limiting character power and making them fit into part of a war machine is gritty and more believable, but it's also limiting in the types of stories that you can tell and the manner in which you can tell them. The result was pitting two of our premier characters against each other without requiring a ship.

If I find energy and inspiration later I might enumerate some more on the Cold Dark. It mostly serves as a plot device in this piece but it might be interesting to turn it into an actual character (of sorts).
