Shadow rift


So why does it always seem to be? Me looking at you, you looking at me. It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

    Chapter 6 Part 2 is here

    Yeah, that took me a while, huh? XD. Sorry about that, just wanted to make sure it was all working out well and good before publishing it. This chapter does a lot of things for Daybreak that I originally intended, including a straight man for the shenanigans of our dearly beloved couple of Shadow Rift and Aryanne. This one is a lot more character driven, plenty of discussion, so if that's your

    Vectoring!

    That's right... I decided to experiment around and wound up making what you see as my new avatar! It's not perfect and it's a little rough around the edges, but otherwise, I'm happy with how it came out.

    Another while... yeesh... (Discussing DIYE, Daybreak, Venia, and beyond)

    Suppose I’ll begin again by another apology. Yeah, me and apologies seem to go hand in hand... err... hoof n’ hoof with one another. Just know that the reason behind this is that a lot of various issues arose that caused me to put a hold on many of the projects I was working on. Real life, girlfriend moving in, dog raising/pseudo-parenting... some projects going up in flames and others down the

    Been a while huh? (Project announcement/Seeking Pre-Readers)

    Hey guys. yeah, it’s been another while, and I honestly can't explain it all away in just one blog post. At this point, it may just seem redundant. However, my absence doesn't mean lack of productivity... entirely anyways. For those of you interested in where I've been and what I've been doing, as well as plans for this next upcoming story, continue on after the page break.

    Every damned time...

    Welp, I’m back. That’s right, me... the obnoxious and ignorant one doth have returned from an extended vacation... if you can call it that... to continue writing stories for all of you guys. Or as many as I can manage.

Another while... yeesh... (Discussing DIYE, Daybreak, Venia, and beyond) · 6:01am Oct 7th, 2018

Suppose I’ll begin again by another apology. Yeah, me and apologies seem to go hand in hand... err... hoof n’ hoof with one another. Just know that the reason behind this is that a lot of various issues arose that caused me to put a hold on many of the projects I was working on. Real life, girlfriend moving in, dog raising/pseudo-parenting... some projects going up in flames and others down the shitter.

I have plans, but I suppose a part of me just needs to know now before going on. For those of you interested in finding out about my activities, mainly in regards to story writing, continue on with the page break. But the short and skinny situation right now is that I’m a bit conflicted about continuing on with some of my projects here and possibly looking to place more efforts into personal projects. Okay? Okay. Thank you.


Well then, this seems familiar, huh? I already explained that most of my reasoning behind my lack of information, let alone uploads, primarily has to do with my personal life. As many of you know, I adopted a German Shepard/Beagle mix named Nova that took up a lot of my spare time. Time that unfortunately meant the sacrifice of any spare that could’ve gone towards writing. Add onto the fact that my girlfriend agreed to move in with me, and work being a pain in the ass and... well, it’s the same song and dance as before.

With all of that said, whenever I do come onto the site, a lot of what made it appealing just sorta vanishes. No fault on anyone’s behalf really, and I don’t wanna go with the depressing “things aren’t what they used to be”... but I would be lying if I didn’t say that’s how it felt. Nothing, and I mean absolutely NOTHING, would make me happier than to finish up at least two of the stories I had already began. But the issue is that I’m conflicted between doing so or just flat out giving up. The spark I once had died most recently when a disaster occurred that all but completely sapped out my desire to continue onwards with writing horse words. Not exactly writing in general, but I’ll save that for later...

That in mind, I do want to try to find it in myself to finish up some of my stories, if only for the sake of you guys who have been waiting on it now for a total two year hiatus from all of them... but my biggest fear is that no matter what I do, I won’t find the passion I once had for writing for this fandom or I’ll just up and produce shitty work after shitty work. That said... I’m sorry to disappoint some of you, but those are my honest to God feelings on the matter. I’m not saying goodbye, but I’m not saying I’m back in the game just yet. I’m... conflicted more than anything.

Now on that part about writing...

Despite the shpeal I just gave, I want everyone to know I am absolutely not giving up entirely on the art form I’m currently still trying in vein to perfect. If there’s two things I can walk away with from FiM, it’s the amazing people I’ve gotten to meet and discuss the show with (despite the fact that some of those people have already up and abandoned the series and this website as a whole) and my passion for the art form. Through you guys, I was able to discover my love of writing, and it’s because of that that I was able to more or less branch off to different things. Chief among them being a totally new IP I and a group of about four other incredibly talented individuals have been hard at work at for the past few months.

For those of you interested in said IP and are interested at all in perhaps participating in its creation, I recently created a Discord group for the IP. There we discuss all things writing and writing related, primarily with the group’s namesake: Venia. I’ll leave a link to it all right here... https://discord.gg/ynMFWFm

The series will be set on the aforementioned planet Venia and will be told mostly in comic book format, with the first issue (Issue #0 for any comic fans) being free of charge and posted to an entire website for which we can host the series later on. Rough outlines for the story and lore are already in the works and preliminary pictures of the characters are currently being completed (some of which being ideas and concepts I could never use here!). If you’re interested, again, I posted the discord server room for you to join. And if you’re really interested in trying to get in on a piece of the action, I recommend checking out the interview chat, where I and two other representatives will interview you to join our band of misfits. :rainbowlaugh: <- (Really missed these emojis by the way...)

So... that’s it. As I stated before, this isn’t me either returning or leaving as of yet, just giving a good old passer by to determine whether or not to continue. If you guys want to see me continue with the stories I already have posted here, please let me know and I’ll do my absolute best to crunch them all out in the best quality I can possibly achieve. Thank you all for staying with me, and I hope to see you all again on the road back to West Virginia...
