    So I'm watching the premiere

    No, I haven't watched season 8. Yes, I am watching because Chrysalis, Tirek, and Sombra are back. Also, why was an eight year old in Tartarus, who made that decision?

    Making It Official

    I haven't been active on the site for over a year. I have occasionally checked in to see how everyone was doing, but I've barely gotten any writing done here. I know I left on a hiatus last year and said I might come back to the site one day, but that's looking less likely with every passing day.

    So, I'm making it official; I'm leaving.

Making It Official · 11:21pm May 17th, 2018

I haven't been active on the site for over a year. I have occasionally checked in to see how everyone was doing, but I've barely gotten any writing done here. I know I left on a hiatus last year and said I might come back to the site one day, but that's looking less likely with every passing day.

So, I'm making it official; I'm leaving.

I'm not gonna delete my account. I'll keep all my stories up, but all incomplete works are now officially cancelled. I'm deeply sorry to everyone for disappearing and I'm even more sorry that I'm only coming back just to say goodbye. But, after I received a couple of messages on my tumblr from a less than kind individual, I realized that I left you all under the impression that I was coming back. And that doesn't look to be the case anymore.

While I love the show and the fandom, I've long lost inspiration. I thought I could regain it, but that's proven to be a challenge. Although I'm doing better than I was last year, I'm still working through a lot of personal issues. My father, who I hadn't spoken to in four years, died recently. He was an awful man to me and my family, but a beloved member of the community. My aunt loved to say, "there were people that loved him and people that knew him." I was one of the unlucky ones that knew him.

Because my dad's family lived states away, my mother, brother, and I stepped in and took over the plans for the funeral. It was emotionally taxing to say the least. I'm doing a lot better than I was, but I'm still healing from the trauma and grief. I have started writing again, although it hasn't been for here. That well has run dry, I'm afraid.

I won’t forsake my involvement with the fandom because they got me through some hard times and helped me become a better writer. I love all of you for supporting me, so you can imagine how hard it is for me to do this. But, it'll be even harder if I don't say something and leave you all wondering. So... here it is. My official goodbye.

I really am sorry, everyone. I wish I could say that I might come back one day, but... well, I don't see that happening. I'm sorry for leaving my stories unfinished. I'm sorry for leaving like I did last year. And I'm sorry for not being as involved as I could have been.

But, most of all... I wanna say thank you. I started off by making small blogs about the show and where it was going, then I started writing with a small HiE fic. My full descent into the site came when I wrote myfirst SombraPie fic.By no means is it perfect, but dammit, I can never get over how much support that first story got me and how happy it made me. Enough for me to keep going. And going. And going.

And now it's coming to an end.

I wanna say thank you to cheering me on and being there when I needed it. You got me through some hard times, sometimes without even knowing it. I wish the best for all of you and hope you all succeed where you may go. I truly mean that.


Goodbye everyone. You made me ascend to heights I never thought I would. Thank you.

Goodbye.

Just to let you know, I think your SombraPie fics are awesome.

Good bye and good luck with life.

Before you go, would you please edit your stories so they read as cancelled instead of on hiatus?

Well I'm sorry to see you go, but I understand that real life comes first. You will be missed.

I haven't known you for very long, but in the short time I've known you, you've always been so nice. Sad to see you go, but I wish you all the best :heart:

Good luck, good life, ciao

Same, marked as Cancelled would be nice

You had an awesome run. You were one of the first people I followed on this site, and definitely one of the most inspirational towards starting my own writing. We'll miss you, Harmony. Safe travels, whether online or elsewhere. Thanks for being a part of my life, however tangential.

Would have loved to get to know you a little better, too. It's a shame I won't reach you on here but hey, it's a small fandom. Hopefully I'll bump into you somewhere or other.

But for now, goodbye.

Farewell and Godspeed to wherever you may end up.

Well... Shit, Harmony. As someone who has had a personal loss myself in your absence, I can for once say I genuinely understand, and I’m deeply sorry you had to go through that. I’m glad you came to say goodbye to us, that you had cared to give us a concrete conclusion to your story here on the site. Your works are still very followed, and you will be missed more than you think.

Goodbye, old friend.

Farewell. Your stories will always be a part of my "favourites"-section.

Aw now I'm sad. But farewell Charmer and may Fate smile upon you wherever you go!

I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Wish you the best for the future and thank you for making such good stories.

Wish you nothing but blessings for the future

This may be selfish, but would I be able to read any of your future work? I really enjoy reading what you've written within the pony community so I'd imagine that what you'll write will be just as good if not better.

Well, I know I'm late, but I wish you the best of luck where ever life decides to take you. I really like your SombraPie work.

Thank you all for your kind words. I'm very happy to have such supporting and kind people who are understanding of my situation and feelings. I'm sorry for not saying something sooner, I just wasn't sure if it was appropriate to say anything yet... The plan was to wait a few days and reply then, but those days turned to weeks and then months... So sorry about that. But, I am glad I checked in to see all your sweet words and wishes.

As per request, my stories were switched to cancelled so that people are aware of their status (thank you for reminding me, I totally forgot). Also, a few of you were interested in seeing any work I do for other fandoms or perhaps even original work. I recently got an ao3 (SovereignOfShipping), but I don't have anything up there as of yet, I'm sorry to say. I also a wattpad... also no works up on that front.

Again, thank you all for your kind words. I wish you all the best as well~ :pinkiesmile:

4916239
I'll be sure to! There are still some fics that I have in my read later... About almost 2000 of them, whoops... So I'll be reading and commenting when I make the time~!

4916242
Oof. Just stay well! :heart:

4916242
2,000, hm?


Let’s see if we can’t get that number a bit... higher....

4916235
Don't be a stranger out there, check in soon, and I'm right there with you in a backlog of unread stories that I still need to read; life has kept me really busy these last couple years, especially with the job I've been working since May.

4916242
