Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here and working on stories with a religious fervor.

    The Return

    It's... been awhile to say the least.

    Two years since I last posted anything on here.

    It's hard to admit, but what essentially happened was that I dropped out of the fandom. Didn't watch the show, didn't go on Equestria Daily, and didn't really browse FIMfiction. Didn't really write either.

    Why?

    One-Thousand Likes!

    'Living Forever...' just reached 1,000 likes. My first story ever to achieve such a number.

    ...I am so happy right now.

    Tutelary Spirit stories are now multi-chapter

    As I'm sure many of you have noticed by now, Lessons Learned from Loyalty, Truth Earned from Honesty, and Wealth Granted from Generosity are no longer one-shots, but are now comprised of chapters. This is because I have decided that all Tutelary Spirit installments will henceforth be short, multi-chapter stories.

    Why have I decided to go this route?

    I'm Back!

    For these past months, I've been working on one story and one story only. I thought I would have it done before summer...

    But that didn't happen.

    I thought I would have it done before summer ended...

    But that didn't happen either.

    Continuing to work on the Tutelary Spirit universe

    Been busy as of late concerning some happenings in my life. Now, I've finally gotten myself back to concentrating on my writing.

    So here's what I'm currently working on:

    ~ A Tutelary Spirit installment centered on a character that isn't one of the mane six
    ~ More short stories for Tales of the Tutelary Spirits (both the embellished and non-embellished kind)
    ~ A prequel

The Return · 4:49am Apr 3rd, 2018

It's... been awhile to say the least.

Two years since I last posted anything on here.

It's hard to admit, but what essentially happened was that I dropped out of the fandom. Didn't watch the show, didn't go on Equestria Daily, and didn't really browse FIMfiction. Didn't really write either.

Why?

To tell you the truth, I'm really not sure. Life had started getting hectic, though really there was nothing stopping me from getting on this computer of mine and writing down some words. I just decided to keep pushing it off before forgetting it about it entirely.

But then, one day when my life had gotten a little bit more stable, I decided I was going to write some fanfics again. I hadn't even decided I was going to return to write fics for MLP, I actually had some ideas for a different show.

Of course, nearly two years without writing anything, I kind of wanted some motivation.

So I decided to reread my Tutelary Spirit universe.

And boy had I forgotten. After for so long, reading those stories felt like I was reading them for the first time ever. It was quite an experience. I had forgotten the emotion that I had left in these stories and it was nice to feel them again.

Before I knew it, I was exploring the brony fandom once again: the fan videos, the animation, the reacts, the music; it was so fun to do so again.

Then I started browsing FIMfiction, trying to find as many new stories as I could, the ones that I had missed over these two years (still working on that).

...But I also revisited the old. It was... disheartening, to say the least, to see so many of my favorites left unfinished, and to see quite a few of the more popular authors on here just drop off of the radar.

But then I realized, was I already not one of them? Hadn't I too abandoned this place and left my stories unfinished.

No.

Because I've decided to come back and finish them.

For those who missed me at all these past years, I apologize for my absence.

For those who will continue to follow me and my stories despite my prior leaving, I might suggest you do some rereading so you can get caught back up.

Lord knows I needed to.

It's great to be back, everypony.

Well, this is a pleasant surprise. ^_^ Nice to have you back, and hope you enjoy writing again. This is definitely a series I have missed, and glad to see it continued.

Glad to have you back. :)

*hug* Good to see you've returned :twilightsmile:

Huzzah, tutelary spirits! One of my favorite series, glad to hear it's not quite over yet. Welcome back! :)

Your Tutelary Spirit stories were interesting to follow. Nice to see you back at writing.

Welcome back.:twilightsmile: ...And this is why 'old' stories never leave tracking until completed. You just never know...

I had been wondering why you stopped halfway through the series, hoping that you would come back and finish them. Now you're back, and, hello again. I had read the first two back when they were still one-shots, and decided to hold off on the re-read until they were all finished. Thank you for making my waiting worthwhile.

Welcome back, it's great to see you decided to finish your spirits series.

No worries, duder. Interests ebb and flow. Yes, it's sad to see so many fics unfinished and abandoned (*cough* like mine *cough*) but that's the way fan fiction works. We don't get paid to do this, so it's a work of passion, and sometimes... that passion leaves us.

I, for one, am glad you're back and in a better mood. I'm excited to see where you take your stories! :ajsmug:

welp, isnt this just heartwarming... now let us pray for others to return

Just glad to see ya back.

Sweet! Welcome back! It's real good to see you've returned. I've really missed the Spirits universe, and really look forward to seeing it continued!

Welcome back! It's nice to know Tutelary Spirits are so interesting that it can motivate its own writer.

Yay! Welcome back. I look forward to whatever you have to write...

Yay! Hope is not dead! So glad to have your talent back :pinkiehappy:

thats the price of fandom writers. live gets in the way and things happen. but welcome back. upside you get to binge none stop on a lot of things.

Welcome back! I love the Tutelary Spirits stories, so I'm thrilled to see this. I hope you enjoy writing for yourself (and us!) once again!

As the tide comes and goes, so do people. Either its priorities, interests, or what ever that take you away, i'm just glad you never deleted anything.

I said this in your chapter update, and I'll say it here too: Welcome back!

Glad to see you among the living again.

welcome back dudezb
its so great to know your going to continue writing here

Good to see you back and writing. Your stories always had such a mystical feel to it that leaves you wanting more. It reminds me of the first true story book I ever read; Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Based on greek mythology with a modern twist.

:heart::pinkiehappy::heart:
Welcome Back

Heyooooo! I was just rereading the series too. Welcome back.

I add to the chorus of welcome back. Was always sad that there wasn't more of your stories. Didn't even realize it had been so long.

I cant wait to read the rest of kindness!

Just good to have you back. Still worth the wait its been.

Welcome back! I eagerly await more Spirits!

Can't wait to see more of your story if the tutelary spirits. I'm dying to know how Fluttershy's story ends.

This is an awesome surprise. I've gotten around to binging the universe after reading the first installment. I'm extremely pleased with it.
