    Progress of sorts...

    ... well, not on the heartbeat thing, except that I felt terrible yesterday and, at the moment, feel pretty good. Hopefully I have more like now and less like yesterday until I get that ultrasound.

    But no, what I mean is: yesterday I sat down with KSP and finally flew CSP Mission 21, aka "Dragonfly's Glory."

    Update on the heartbeat thing.

    The first opening they had was during my next convention trip- as in, not this weekend's, but Labor Day weekend's.

    So I'm going to have to wait for three weeks.

    And I won't know how much I'll have to co-pay for this until next week at least.

    Until then, my own medical paranoia gets to run free and play...

    Irregular heartbeat confirmed.

    For the first time in my life, I saw a cardiologist today.

    He confirmed the finding on the EKG I had two weeks ago: "right branch bundle block." In short, something is making it difficult for the bundle of nerves that tells the right side of my heart to send blood to my lungs to do its job.

    The first reading of one of my fics!

    Fanfiction Reader has rendered a voice-synthesis version of Changeling Space Program on YouTube! The program doesn't have any sense of timing, and it stumbles badly trying to pronounce unfamiliar words, but it provides a way to read (or re-read) the story without staring at a screen!

So, apparently I won a thing. · 1:20am April 23rd

So, For Love of the Love of the Game won the Pinkie Pie award for comedy... after, I'm told, originally being in the running for the Rainbow Dash award for awesomeness.

Which is fair, because I was going for either one. I could also make a weak case for the Twilight Sparkle Attention to Detail or the Fluttershy D'aww.

But not the Rarity Elegance, because the story is possibly Rarity's least elegant moment.

Anyway, thanks to the judges, and thank to the readers (even the one person who downvoted it).

Congrats! It definitely earned the Pinkie.

Hell, it deserved the trophy, in spades. Great work!

I may not have LOL'ed, but I definitely enjoyed it. Rarity may have a promising career if the fashion industry ever tanks... :pinkiehappy:

Congratulations! I'm happy for you and I can't wait to read the story!
