    Lesson learned

    If your name is Charles Spratt, do not talk about your favorite and least favorite characters in anything with anyone under any circumstances ever, because sure enough, everyone will say that your favorites are amongst the worst characters in whatever franchise they're in and your least favorites are the best in said franchise without fail every time. Because fuck me for liking the wrong person,

    The Cynical Brony reveals the horrors of Overwatch's Balancing.

    So last night, I had an interesting conversation with The Cynical Brony about Overwatch, a game I don't play anymore and don't have any interest in, due in part to lack of versatility in the characters resulting in characters tactics being easy to predict (which is probably the main reason I prefer TF2 from a gameplay perspective), and partly to a toxic fanbase that made any match quickly

    Update on a story I'm writing.

    So I know what you're thinking right now. You're thinking 'dangit, I clicked on the wrong thing in my feed by mistake!' and clicking off. However, assuming I'm somehow wrong and you're here because you're legitimately interested in what I'm writing, well, I've got an update for you.

    I have no testicles, apparently.

    So after some time of searching for buddies and getting the money and time in the right places, we managed to get a group of Fimfiction outcasts and rejects consisting of myself, The Cynical Brony,

Update on a story I'm writing. · 9:25pm Dec 22nd, 2018

So I know what you're thinking right now. You're thinking 'dangit, I clicked on the wrong thing in my feed by mistake!' and clicking off. However, assuming I'm somehow wrong and you're here because you're legitimately interested in what I'm writing, well, I've got an update for you. Believe it or not, I'm actually writing a new story for the site right now. Not only that, but I am only about one and a half big scenes away from completing it. It's been a long time since my last story and I'm actually pretty excited to see if I can get this uploaded.

Here's some details:
The story's current title is Siren's Light, and for this story, I'm going to be attempting some things I either haven't tried before, or haven't tried in so long that it may as well be my first time. Despite it most likely being a one shot, it's going to be a fair bit wordier then most of my other stories, with my current estimation at between 8 to 10 thousand words. It's also based (albeit loosely) off of an old story written back in 1845 that I recently read and quite enjoyed (even though most people I've talked to about it recently have never even heard of it,surprisingly enough), and one that I will probably make a habit out of reading again whenever Christmas rolls around. My story is also one that I'm going to do everything in my power to get finished, preread, and uploaded before Christmas Day, due to the story having several themes that, I feel at least, fit really well with the Christmas Season. It's also going to be my first attempt at writing in third person in years, which as I'm discovering is a bit trickier then I expected it to be. Finally, it'll probably be rated teen for similar reasons as my last story, Gone. And that's all I'm saying on that matter, don't want to spoil too much.

I'm extremely excited for this one, and I've gotten a few people fairly close to me (specifically Nagi-Muffin, LightningSword, and The Cynical Brony) who agreed to serve as prereaders in order to make sure that it's fairly up to snuff. While I don't know if all of them will have time given the somewhat time crunched nature of this project, I'll make sure to give a heads up to any of them that manage to get their two cents in before upload.

Still, I won't lie, I'm pretty nervous this time. This is my first time writing after a pretty long hiatus, It's my first time writing something past 5000 words since Something is Missing back in 2014, and well, after Gone ended up exploding and making it all the way up to number three on the featured stories list (which was one of the happiest experiences of my Fimfiction career, by the way. Seriously, thanks for that guys.), I've been pretty worried that whatever I'd write next would have higher expectations then normal on it. I'm not necessarily saying I'm expecting Siren's Light to reach anywhere near those heights once released (though I'd seriously be ecstatic if it does reach the featured box. It would be a wonderful Christmas present.), but I do wonder if I can make something just as good or better with this. It's a bit nerve wracking, y'know?

Regardless, if I manage to get it out in time, I hope you guys get a lot out of it. I've put a good amount of my time over the past few days into this, and I'm hoping it shines through. Merry Christmas, and I hope you guys are looking forward to what I have in store. Cheers :pinkiesmile:

And really anyone else who sees/saw this, I'm afraid there's been a change in plans. I regret to say that there's no way I'd be able to upload this story today as I'd originally intended, due to a combination of wirter's block and catching a bit of the old sickness going around. I'm extremely close to finishing it, with only a little more necessary, but getting to that point took a lot longer then I expected, especially since the prereaders haven't looked at the new stuff I've written yet. Luckily, it isn't a Christmas story, so I can afford to be a bit late. I promise it will go up, and I will still try my hardest to upload it by the end of the year, but my plan of having it up by Christmas sadly won't come to fruition baring some sort of miracle. I apologize for the inconvienience, and hope that the eventual final product is worth it. Cheers :ajsleepy:

it's alright. Take the time you need, and Merry Christmas.
