    Well that was a bust

    One person showed up to watch me play and complete The Last of Us in one sitting, in all the 13 hours and 40 mins it took me on Hard mode.

    I'd like to thank Flashgen, The Albinocorn, and PaulAsaran for attempting to signal boost me, and Albinocorn again for actually being that one who showed up :rainbowlaugh:

    24 hour charity stream: TLoU (PS3) in prep for TLoU2 (PS4 Pro)

    As the title says, I will be attempting to make it through my first ever 24 hour stream. This one will be 100% for charity, although I haven't decided exactly what cause(s) I'm going to support. (Suggestions welcome, leaning toward MSF but totally open to others, ie: individual GoFundMes etc.) Please click through for more details.

    The beginning of the end of the beginning of the end

    Arcelia and I are rewatching mlp from the first episode until the last. Neither of us have seen season nine. She's successfully moved back in with me and we are celebrating by taking the most epic trip down memory lane, culminating in the end of the show that brought us together in a way neither of us ever anticipated. I imagine it will be quite emotional when the time comes to say goodbye to the

    Essenza di Amore 5 year anniversary, Happy 2020, and I can't believe I just typed either of those

    Hi, guys. As we bid farewell to the decade that brought the vast majority of us together, and look forward to the ones yet to come (may they be blessed), I want to share something lovely with you.

You know you've made it when · 12:40am Jul 21st, 2018

The ponyfic equivalent of the Hall of Fame comes knocking on your door.

I never expected this would happen; it was only ever a pipe dream at most. Over the years I've seen so many friends and other people I respect, one by one, added to the hallowed halls of the RCL for legitimately great stories, some they considered their best, others that were just a random idea they knocked out in a few hours. I was always happy for them. I never thought my own writing would be considered among a similar calibre of quality.

Except, maybe, this story. Just maybe. There was, however, one problem with that line of thought: Chris and Present Perfect, curators of the RCL, helped me with the story, which effectively made it ineligible for consideration. So I left it in the far reaches of the back of my mind, and focused on other more life related things.

But then Chris resigned, having contributed top-quality writings and blogs to this niche of the fandom for seven years.

And then, the letter arrived, about which I quizzed Present Perfect, who informed me that he willingly recused himself from any decision-making and left it completely in the hands of the other curators.

So. Here I am today, finding myself living in a world where my best story is considered among the best of many others under a single banner. Wild.

I want to personally thank everyone who was involved with the story, those who read it way back when, those who've done reviews since it came out, and to all my new readers who came because of the RCL interview. You all made this overworked dude very happy over the years.

Except you quit writing fanfic. So does this mean that, like so many authors, you only achieved your fame after your death?

In the writing sense, I'm dead.
I'm still physically alive though.
Hmmm. So maybe I'm an undead? :pinkiegasp:

Oh my goodness, there's clearly a comic I have to read now!

Jeez. It's hard to believe it's been four years since I helped pick apart read the first draft of that story. Even harder to believe it took this long for it to collect this particular accolade. Congratulations, bro!

Posts like this make me really happy :pinkiehappy:

You most certainly earned it. :twilightsmile:

Glad to see your story made it, CV. It certainly deserved it.

Hope all is well with ya outside of fan fiction!

‘Bout time :ajsmug:


Woot woot! Congratulations!

Congratulations. Not gonna lie. I'm a bit jealous. Still, good on you!

I know the feeling. I've been jealous of a great many people for years now. Feels good to join them. Thank you!

Everything is indeed well, my friend. It never slows down but it's never unpleasant. Thank you!

Wow, what a nerd :trollestia:

About time this story got in there. Grats, man!

Well, always nice to read positive stuff from you. Especially stuff like this. Keep it up!
