    The Joys of Having ADHD

    1. Technically, I'm borderline ADD, but at this point idk anymore.
    2. That's sarcasm, if you couldn't tell.

    So I haven't posted a new chapter for Pompeii. I worked at it over the summer, but ultimately, the third chapter is stuck in development hell. At least for now.

    This is because I am currently hyperfixating on something else. No, I will not elaborate.

    Summer update

    Now that spring classes are over, I'm going to try (keyword: try) to get more work done on Pompeii (I think I've written myself into a corner with HMHS, so that's not being worked on anytime soon). Of course, it's been hard bc seasonal depression has kicked in already, but I'm going to try and get another chapter out before mid-July, and if not then, by the end of the summer. It

    Valentine's fic coming up

    Hey all!

    Wanted to do a very small, quick'n'dirty update post: I'm thinking of posting a new oneshot on Valentine's Day, or close enough for it to count as a Valentine's Day story. Yup. That's it. No, uh...nothing else.

    ofc, as a Valentine's Day fic, y'all know what's gonna be in it.

    Pompeii's second chapter is fully written! All that I need to do now is reread and edit it as best I can. It will be up either tomorrow or Wednesday at the earliest!

    Pompeii Chapter 2 = 85% complete!

    Yeah, remember how my last blog post said I was about 42% of the way through writing chapter 2???? So that was a lie.

The party (never) ended · 4:29pm Oct 12th, 2019

Welp. Here we are. Nine years and nine seasons later, FiM has finally drawn the curtains. It's over. But I don't think that means we're over. Y'know, as in, "we're gonna keep this party going until the last man finally dies."

Will Gen 5 be as good? Maybe. Will it have as much impact as Friendship is Magic did? Doubt it. They'd need to pull out all the stops to make it as memorable as possible, and coming off FiM's coattails, that's a tall order to fill.

But I'm looking forward to it.

I dropped out of the fandom for six years to get on with my life; I thought my brony phase was over. But as Douglas McArthur said (or maybe it was Bungie, I don't know), "Spartans never die, they just go missing in action." And I got back just in time to watch the lights fade.

Yeah, I'm sad. Like, I'm real fucking sad. FiM is the sole reason I made it through high school, and now there's no more official content for it. A chapter in my life, and the online world, is over. This message won't reach many people, but for the ones that do hear it: here's to you, and here's to me. I fell into the hole in mid-2013. I don't know when you, dear reader, joined us, but I think I'll be here for a long time to come. I hope you'll be there with me.

Cheers. Here's to the next chapter.
