I am a small time story-writer trying to get his stories published. If I can get any of my fanfictions or original stories published I'd be one happy pony! Look for J. X. Wheeler in a library soon!

    Summoning Tokens

    This has been bugging me for WAAAY too long! What is even a good item to use as Delta's summoning token anyway? I honestly can not think of a good one. Can anyone help?

    Everybody Loves Updates!

    So writing has been slow on 'Would You Kindly?' Like almost depressingly snail like. However, I am here to say that learning a new language is hard as buck and that I decided to use a loophole so I can save myself the trouble. Unfortunately, I am stuck talking in Old English for a bit as a result of the studying.

    Update on 'Would You Kindly?'

    Things have been going smooth, I have been writing the chapter, despite the slow progress, and have been slowly sorting out the events in my head. However, in my haste to make this story a reality, I have stumbled into a rut. Remember when Princess Luna came to celebrate her first Nightmare Night? Well, remember that she said back in her days they talked with the royal 'we" meaning they spoke Old

    Cancelled Story...

    Seeing as how Rainbow Dash The Awesome hasn't responded to me in more than 2 years, I am officially declaring Cutie Mark Crusaders: Pokemon Trainers, and its parent story, cancelled until he returns, whenever that may or may not be. I deeply apologize for any disappointment this might cause.

    What story should I focus on?

    I am not dead everypony! So I have been doing a lot of thinking, and I just thought up an idea that could possibly help me update faster than my current 1 update every x years. I am writing a new story about a displaced human stuck as Mr. Bubbles from Bioshock. However, this blog post is not about that. I want to know, after I post the new story, which of my stories should I focus on? If I focus

Update on 'Would You Kindly?' · 10:54am Jun 17th, 2018

Things have been going smooth, I have been writing the chapter, despite the slow progress, and have been slowly sorting out the events in my head. However, in my haste to make this story a reality, I have stumbled into a rut. Remember when Princess Luna came to celebrate her first Nightmare Night? Well, remember that she said back in her days they talked with the royal 'we" meaning they spoke Old English? Yeah... it turns out that Old English is NOT my strong suit. If anyone is very skilled in such a way of speaking, can they offer me some aid? I am going to need it BADLY if you want me to be able to continue writing this story since it focuses mainly on the two Princesses as fillies.

My reaction when I realized the giant obstacle I have put in my way that will follow me through this whole story:

My reaction when I have to learn an entire old language knowing I will need help doing so:

Is not too different form usual English thee knave.

You will honestly be surprised at how much needs to be learned and when it is correct to use thee, thine, etc.

It's same as using you and yours and so on. Just in singular not plural and singular. Like if you know how to use you, and He/she you know it. I mean it's still pretty unwieldy, but it's not hard.

If you would use you to refer to singular person, you use thee. If you use yours its thine(or thy) . If direct speech use thou.

Thou and Ye(nominative you) almost never come up, so don't worry about it, unless you use a lot of direct speech. If you could use persons name, you use them instead.

Like you do same thing in first and 3rd person already. Its the same but in second person.

Like I don't get what you even have to learn. If you can tell difference from singular and plural (I from We, or It from they). I mean Thy and Thine use is bit confusing, but it's not like people will be that mad if they catch you out on the misuse.

I have been reading an entire online book about learning Old English. There is a lot more about how to write it, pronounciations, and a slew of other things that involve more than thine and thee.
