    The truth about Blueblood

    I've long been on the side of the 'Blueblood' argument in favor of giving him the benefit of the doubt; venturing the guess that he just has a keen instinct for picking out the fops and then acts like a boor to scare them off. Rarity was being a fop at the Gala. This was before I rewatched the season one finale the other day. Having done so, I can now confidently say I was right; his behavior

    Regarding Starlight's Canon debut...

    Been a couple years since I made one of these things, but I've seen a lot of users using them to talk about things well beyond fanfiction so I figured 'why not?' As for the subject, well some might think the title says it all, but not quite.

    Gamer Fic Notice

    I feel bad for even considering this, because you guys have been waiting three weeks already and I just know what the implication will be, but...as I said, it’s been three weeks. That wouldn’t be a problem if I had something to show for it, but...two paragraphs. As for what I’m considering...I’m thinking of putting the story on hiatus so I can try writing something different without feeling

    Full 'Verse?

    It just occurred to me so I thought I’d ask about it. Should I make my story ‘Forever Sisters, Forever Together’ a full AU? Or should it remain a self-contained One-Shot? Don’t vote too hard, or you might burn down the Everfree.

Gamer Fic Notice · 12:52pm May 25th, 2019

I feel bad for even considering this, because you guys have been waiting three weeks already and I just know what the implication will be, but...as I said, it’s been three weeks. That wouldn’t be a problem if I had something to show for it, but...two paragraphs. As for what I’m considering...I’m thinking of putting the story on hiatus so I can try writing something different without feeling bogged down by thoughts of this story. I will come back to it if I can get myself out of this lapse of creative thought, but any time I try to work on the next chapter, nothing comes. I know I’m not tapped in general, because I have plenty of creative thoughts. So I figure it must be the result of stagnation in my outlet.

For the record, I’ve taken note of the majority opinion with regards to the question I posed at the end of the last chapter. I’m finalizing the decision right now as the current majority opinion, which is a partial reveal. It will be a half truth. Twilight will say that she’s an anomaly of a reincarnation; retaining the knowledge and experience of her previous life. That is the majority opinion, and for those who wonder, I’m allowing this more specific rendition of one of my initial choices because I realized after seeing the first mention of it that the limited choice I offered was very short sighted. I shouldn’t have specified yes or no. I should have left it at ‘Does she reveal the truth?’

Going back to my plan, I will be attempting to write a first chapter for a few possible stories. If the problem is stagnation of outlet like I suspect, then giving me a lot to work with should go toward solving the problem. If this works out, any who continue to stick around will know when the progress tag switches back to incomplete. I know I said I’m thinking of putting the story on hiatus, but it’s pretty much a given for reasons I’ve already stated. Sorry guys, hopefully I can push through this. Wish I could do better for you all, especially after that good game I talked up a while back when someone brought something very similar up in a comment. Probably should have heeded him more.

*grumble* if it wasn't for the fact i know 'exactly' how hard it is to focus on a project sometimes id be grumbeling more over this cause i was really liking this story
but as i said i know exactly how hard it can be so you do what you need to.

I'm around. Unfortunately, it became apparent almost immediately that my idea wasn't working. I know I had some other ideas for stories that I was hoping to get started, to test if diversity of work could clear the mental plug, but I couldn't get anything going with them beyond the initial concepts. I can honestly say that I have no plans to completely give up on my gamer fic, but that might change depending on how my latest idea pans out, so just a heads up on that unfortunate possibility. For now, I've been thinking that the best solution might be to go back to square one and rethink how I'm doing it.

When I was first planning the story, my idea was to have it start with a 3-4 year old Twilight so my options were wide open from the start. That partially carried into my first draft of the freshly reborn Twilight, where she was talking right away. Then I decided that she should act her physical age to avoid suspicion, and I think that's what hindered me. I've never written a character too young to speak. Anyway, recently I've been thinking of going back to my original idea of having Twilight finish inputting her New Game+ settings, then have a few years jump.

The more I think about it, more it sounds like a good idea, but I'm not going to make any official updates in this direction unless I can write at least 5 chapters in this manner. I want to be sure I can figure a way out of this funk before I make any decisions. It's gotten to the point where I need to decide once and for all if this fic is sinking or swimming. I've kept you guys on the fence for too long as it is, and I'm sorry about that. If it turns out that I can't hack it, I apologize in advance for being so cocky and making promises I couldn't keep.

no big deal as i said before i know how hard it is to write a good story i honestly thought you were doing a prety good job really, also you can probly reuse the proloug from this one for your new version, as to how to go about the time skip simple, have the 'game' let her chose how old she wants to be when she starts, twilight is smart enough to know that starting out as an infant would be rather tedious for the very reasons youve discovered...the ideal point to start actualy would probly be the moment of the rainboom (the first one when the six got the cutie marks)...also her power surge then could explain her alicorn status, have the surge cause a forced asension, or at least thats what celestia will asume.

i may or may not have been runing this story thru my head for awhile now too *laughs* when i see something i like i often do that, take it in whatever directions tickel my fancy within my head, feel free to use this idea if you like it or not if you wana do your own thing, i found though that my personal path to story nirvana is bouncing ideas off an equaly creative friend

its why im good at rping, but suck at storywriteing, if im writeing alone i stall out fast but with someone else puting there 2 cents in and contributing i always have something to keep me moving forward.

Thanks for your input. I don't know how I never thought of that, but that makes a lot of sense from a narrative perspective.

Hope you get re-inspired, and that this break has been good for you.
