    All Possible Worlds: A Sequel

    Thank you so much everyone! Technically it's been a few weeks since the last person filled out my little questionnaire. Nevertheless, I am quite astounded by the amount of answers I got, especially considering that this was just a minor fanfiction that ended some time ago on a show that ended also some time ago. I am, to say, overwhelmed by the surprising amount of answers. So, thank you

    The Worst of All Possible Worlds Sequel Questionnaire

    Before I forget for the seventh time, I meant to create a post about the recent chapter for The Worst of All Possible Worlds. It contained at the end a request for answering a Google Form to help discern some questions I have about a sequel. It's short, and won't take up much of your time, but I meant to create a post about it so that those who want to give it some thought would have easier

    Quick Not Dead Post & The Alicorn Problems Preview

    Yo. Just wanted to say that I'm not dead and haven't quit. Not really much to say other than some of the stuff I've been working on. There's a new chapter to The Worst of All Possible Worlds dropping some time soon as a prelude to a sequel. Wasn't originally planning on doing a sequel to TWoAPW. Probably shouldn't do a sequel. But I'm going to because—eh, why not?

    New Story: The Alicorn Problem

    I've decided to finally publish something instead of holding onto it for eons out of fear of it being terrible. I've got to stop letting doubts and perfectionism cease my progress. Can't get better if there's no feedback.

The Worst of All Possible Worlds (Update) · 2:20pm Apr 14th, 2019

There's no easy way to say this, so I'm going to come out and say it...

If you haven't read TWoAPW recently, or it's been a while, (especially since there hasn't been an update in months, and months before that update as well), then I have bad news.

You should probably go back and read it to get refreshed. Otherwise, you're going to be really confused when the next updates come.

:derpytongue2:

In all seriousness. This week, (yes, today is the 14th of April, so this week), there will be TWO chapters posted, Tuesday and Thursday. This will finish off Arc 5. Wow, a whole lot, right? Such a big undertaking to read over 300k words for two chapters, just for another hiatus to occur.

How long will the next hiatus be? Well. I'm ashamed to admit it, but... it'll be an entire week! That's right. This week, two chapters, then in two weeks, two more chapters!

Actually, let me cut the unneeded tension for a moment to explain the schedule. Since the coming of an end for, well, let's see... Game of Thrones, Avenges - Thanos Arc, and the actual end of Friendship is Magic itself, I decided to get my butt into gear and do some overdrive magic. I got through the books I've been needing to read to get better at writing. I completed the re-editing of older chapters, decreasing the amount of errors (I'm sure someone will still find one or two), and removing wordiness (which is funny seeing as how it's still over 300k words).

The schedule, should I not die or something happen to my computer, is this:
This week - two chapters, Arc 5: Chapter 12 and 13.
Next week - no updates.
The week after - two chapters, Arc 6: Chapter 1 and 2
Then, every sequential week after that week - two chapters, eventually reaching Arc 6: Chapter 10.
That should be the ending week of May. On the first week of June will be Arc 6: Chapter 11, 12, and 13.
Another week long hiatus will occur. (Yes, very long, I know.)
Then, if everything goes as planned, on June 17th, 19th, and 21st, the final chapters of the story will be posted. Arc 7: Chapter 1, 2, and 3. The only chapters for the final arc.
All updates are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, aside from three chapter post weeks, which will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

While this post is meant to convey a (hopefully well kept) schedule, it is also meant to be a sincere apology. Over 200 likes, 4k views, 400 comments, and only Knighty knows how many bookshelf additions. (Wait, no, it's 1336, with 436 tracking. Well, over 400 of you will probably see this blog post.)

I truly do love this story and regard it as some of the best work I've ever made. The ending makes me cry every time I read it. Not actual tears, but more liquid pride. It's why I want it to go so well, and for it to be the best it can truly be before presenting it to you all. However, the months and months between updates is upsetting to myself as much as it is to all you who put time into reading it. So, I apologize, but I certainly hope it's worth the wait.

That wait, however, will soon be over. I thank you, heartily.

...

As a side note - after the story is over - how many of you would be willing to play a visual novel game based on this story? I've honestly thought about creating something fun with multiple branching paths, which this story could definitely do. It would take a lot longer than the time I spent on this story, that's for sure. Especially since I don't know anything about creating games. Just wanted to put it out there and see if people would be interested. I mean, c'mon. Wouldn't you want to see how your Sunset would do in the Tirek Arc?

Oh man oh man oh man! I'm excited!

I'm almost certainly gonna read the Arc 5 chapters when they happen, but there's a very good chance I wait until June 20th to read the rest (at which point I'll just read the whole thing right on through).

Bonus arc where Sunset goes to a world ruled by Sunset when

Thanks for all your writing, and I look forward to how this story shakes out
