    Sometimes I look at the world around me

    And find it very hard not to feel like I'm the only one who has any control over their emotions.

    Collection results

    And so, having received exactly zero responses, I am left wondering if the poll was actually working. Nonetheless, the selection of stories is now left entirely up to me.

    Good luck, everyone!

    New story is progress

    A while back, I mentioned the possibility of a follow-up to By the Light of the Fire that followed a more experimental format. I have officially started work on it. The primary concept is this: Apple Bloom, needing to understand what she saw just beyond the light of the fire (and hopefully proving once and for all that she imagined it), sets out into the greater world to seek an answer by

    I wrote a letter to GreyGuardPony today

    It was nothing spectacular, but afterwards, it was pretty clear it was something that I needed to do.

    That is all.

Dust in the wind · 6:46am Dec 17th, 2018

Zalabar sent me a PM just about an hour ago now to let me know that GreyGuardPony unfortunately passed away from esophageal cancer December the Seventh, 2018.

I'm not... surprised would be the word, I guess. It was diagnosed August of 2017, and I suspect I was one of the first people she told. Again, not surprising; I knew her for 16 years.

What I am is shocked. I think in large part because I had somehow convinced myself that as long as I never heard any bad news, then nothing bad would happen and everything would turn out fine. The tragic consequence of this is that I got worse and worse and worse about staying in contact with her, and so here we are with me shocked that this happened, and with me furious at myself because even though I knew there was a chance things would end badly, I couldn't be bothered to put in the effort to be the friend that she deserved to have.

Please take some time out of your day and let your family and friends know that you love them; learn from my colossal fuck-up so that you don't do it yourself. And if it still happens, learn from me anyway and don't treat your blog or social media like it's LiveJournal, the way that I'm doing now.

I'm going to be fine. A little time will pass, and I'll be fine; don't worry about me. If you are so inclined, however, please say a prayer for the family that has survived her.

I, er, I just...

Thank you. And pardon me..

As one of the friends who keeps breaking into tears at random moments... I guess I'd also appreciate some prayers. But mostly yeah; life is a limited time offer and you can't keep from hurting people when you're gone, so make sure they know you care while you can.
