    Another Weird Dream

    Dreams are weird. Enough said. Guess I'm too excited about the next Zelda game cause I had a dream relating to that. Not that I mind, of course. Though what I dreamt probably won't make it into any new Zelda game.

    Update Two: Electric Boogaloo

    Salutations once again.

    It's been a while since I last updated my story Letters From Across The Disgruntled Multiverse or even write anything here at all. I think some explanations is needed.

    Bird Box Crossover Dream?

    Ever heard of the horror movie Bird Box?

    Never watched it myself, cause I'm not a fan of horror, but I did know the premise at least.

    What's even stranger was that I dreamt a crossover of it with My Little Pony. Though only in bits and fragments. Allow me to share it with you guys and tell me what you think.

    Considering that they have similar coat colours, are guards, and have similar first names. Could they be related?

    Short Disgruntled Chapter

    The Cheek's in the Mail by Rambling Writer

    Don't know why but after reading this story. I figure there could be a disgruntled chapter for this. But it's too short for my standards. So, I'll post here.



    Dear Pinkie Pie,

Update Two: Electric Boogaloo · 7:47am Dec 20th, 2019

Salutations once again.

It's been a while since I last updated my story Letters From Across The Disgruntled Multiverse or even write anything here at all. I think some explanations is needed.

To those who didn't know, I joined the army in 2018 for my two year service there as required by every male Singaporean. That service is going to end soon coming next year though this past year has made me very busy with army work. I'll spare you the details because of all that is confidential stuff. Then there's the fact that I'll be going to university coming the end of next year so even now I may not have time to write as much. Then there's the fact that I tend to procrastinate...

Also, I've been helping to write mainly for Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student by milesprower06 as his co-author which is great but that puts lesser focus on my own writing.

But now with MLP ended and the writing for the final chapters of Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student Season 9 are in progress, I think it's only fair that I give an update of where my story: Letters From Across The Disgruntled Multiverse; my current and most ambitious story, will go from here.


If you recall my previous update blogpost. This was what I said on what I had in mind for this story

Well... first off, what do you guys want out of my story? Responses To A Disgruntled Friendship Student (another Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student spinoff) had the quirk of being comebacks to Miles Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student. So I had to wonder what I had to offer to readers with my story.... I pondered on this question as I was halfway finishing the Past Sins arc when it hit me..

Why was I inspired to do a disgruntled letter on Past Sins? I liked both Pasts Sins and Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student and so I wanted to do a story that honors both; showing the strengths and flaws of both stories. I guess that would be how and handle future disgruntled stories from now on. Combing the good aspects of both stories while poking fun at the flaws through parody, overexaggeration and references to other wonderful stories on Fimfiction. What do you guys think?

Not much have change on my mindset on writing this story but looking back on what I have written thus far has given me some perspective on how to better myself.

How I normally do a parody story would be to look at the premise of the story, twist it into a disgruntled style of Letters From a Disgruntled Friendship Student, makes some references to pop culture, make some references to various stories on this site (sometimes stories made by the same author whose story I was currently parodying) and that's about it.

There are problems faced with this writing style now that I think about it.

If you look at my Past Sins Arc. To me the most cringest thing I did was trying to constantly hammer in as much pop culture references as possible that didn't fit well in the story context for each chapter. Basically I overdid it.

An example of when hammering in as much references as possible worked would be He Come To Town and Queen Bee (Which was Zelda and Bee themed respectively). Where it makes sense because of the context of both stories

Another problem I face is when wanting to try reference other stories by the same author of the story I'm parodying. If I want to do that I have to read all the stories by that author just to reference them in said story parody. This is both time consuming and stress inducing. There is a lot good to do things in moderation.

In summery, I'll be able to get things done faster and better if I try to do things in moderation or else I feel overwhelmed and procrastinate away... Hopefully this will work. Time will tell...

Also, if you recall there was some ground rules I made for story suggestions when I posted in my previous update on this story. Looking back at it. I think some amendments are needed.

1. I will not do Disgruntled Letters on a one-shot story unless it is above 3000+ words or the story itself has enough ideas/jokes for me to write about it.

2. I will not do Disgruntled Letters on Clopfics. Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship was funny because it put sexual jokes to describe the My Little Pony TV Series which had none of that so doing sex jokes on clopfics feels kind of already does half the job for me which is no fun at all. What I defined as a clopfic would be any story with the porn tag and also any story which main bunk of it involves sex scenes.

3. No. I will not do your own story if you suggest it to me. I would feel to me like you are advertising your story to me. Please suggest other people stories...

4. Keep in mind I will not do bad fanfics. My story is meant to honor good fanfics with a disgruntled comedic spin to it.

5. Stories with gore is a mixed bag for me... You can suggest stories with that but it may take a while (and a strong stomach) before I would read it and may/may not do a disgruntled letter on it. Yeah I think I can handle gore now... hopefully... Maybe???

5. The story must be completed. Not incomplete, not on hiatus and not cancelled. COMPLETED!

6. Even if stories that meet with the above standards I set up, it may still take time to possibly post a disgruntled chapter as I have to read the story (if I haven't read them) and get enough ideas to start writing it. And also, keep in mind I need to ask the author of the suggested story permission first and he or she approves before I attempt writing.


Another thing I'm considering myself trying is to parody straight away any story that was just featured on Fimfiction's main page. This will allow me to follow the latest story trends and get some new viewers invested into my story. Don't know if this method would work but it's worth a try. What do you think?

And also finally... below here is the list of stories that I've completed, am in progress of writing, consider parodying and is vaulted.

Parodies Completed:

  1. Past Sins by Pen Stroke
  2. The Most Annoying Infestation by ocalhoun
  3. The Most Annoying House Guest by Harmony Pie
  4. Love Arrows of Doom by Rated Ponystar
  5. She's Definitely Got The Mane For It by Dilos1
  6. Spirit of Loyalty by milesprower06
  7. The Random Royal Funeral by Darth Link 22
  8. Queen Bee by LightOfTriumph
  9. He Come to Town by FanOfMostEverything

Parodies In Progress:

  1. Small Scale by Twinkletail

    Will probably need to reread the entire story again cause the last I posted this chapter was back in 2016... I may also be rewriting the first chapter.

  2. Tantalbus, Mk. II by Rambling Writer

    The Final Chapter is already in progress just needs a few tweaks and edits

  3. Little Glimpses/Choices/Consequences by Skijarama (Recommended by King Cocoon)

    While I may not cover the entire story series. I'll definitely cover the first story. I already ask and received permission from the author so I can't wait to post the first chapter. There's a lot of potential for me to write for the start and end of Little Glimpses though I'm not sure how to tackle the middle portion...

  4. The Attempted Assassination of Twilight Sparkle by Dubs Rewatcher

    I asked permission back in 2018 and was granted it and there was some progress initially I just need to go and finish it. I may reference Good Girls Are Bad Girls That Haven't Been Taught by the same author in the parody and maybe give a nod to Rated Ponystar's story The Assassination of Twilight Sparkle

  5. Sunlight by The Albinocorn

    Definitely an interesting fic for me to tackle. I've already read this and also A Long Road to Friendship another story by the same author so I have a lot of material to work with. Just need to get a rough draft and ask the author's permission.

  6. Derby Dilemma by SuperPinkBrony12

    Back in 2016, I originally wanted to parody this fic cause I had a lot more ideas for writing for Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student for the chapter The Cart Before The Ponies. Similar to when I had a lot of ideas for The Mane Attraction and did a parody story of She's Got The Mane For It based on said episode.

    Unfortunately, I've forgotten the ideas I had back then and didn't bother to write it down somewhere which was stupid of me. I do want to complete this for sure!

  7. The Irony of Applejack by Mister Friendly

    This is one of the few fics that I was given permission back in 2016. I already had chapter one completed with chapter two in progress but I rather get a few chapter down before I start posting if not you'll be wait a whole year just for another chapter update of a specific arc.

  8. The Day The Reading Died by DrakeyC

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. I didn't had much ideas when I tried writing but I think I may have a way to tackle this story.

  9. When Sirens Rule by Jay David

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. The story ideas I had for this fic are now outdated and wouldn't be as funny. Not sure how to tackle this fic but I'll try.

  10. Morality and Baked Goods by SkyeSilverwing

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. This story was interesting in premise but I need more ideas other than a gingerbread man reference to write a parody.

  11. Essenza di Amore by Cerulean Voice

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. An interesting story. A Cadance origin story but never gave the time to think up some ideas. Hopefully I can change that

  12. Dead/Light by Lord Destrustor

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. A Zombie Twilight story. All the possible zombie pop culture references here are abundant. I just need only need to start writing.

  13. My Friend by KnightMysterio

    Given permission back in 2016 so I really want to get this down before the end of the year. The first draft is already in progress I just need to bother and finish it.

  14. kudzuhaiku's Weedverse

    More specifically the series of stories involving Gosling starting from The Sun Also Surprises.

    While I normally would start with the first story. In the Weedverse's case The Weed. I wanted to do The Sun Also Surprises cause it was the story I read first introducing me to this universe.

    However I'm not doing an entire disgruntled story of these series of stories involving Gosling. I have something better and more fun in mind that I want to try out.

  15. The Changeling of the Guard by vdrake77

    This story is not complete in the slightest but Idol is such a lovable character that I want to do something. The idea I have in mind is the same idea that I have with the above story though I'll probably try doing the above one first before this


In Consideration:

  1. Tatsurou PWNYVerse
    So far I have been recommended to parody two stories set in Tatsurou PWNYVerse.

    The Technological Technicolor Technomare by Tatsurou (Recommended by Biker_Dash)

    On the Corner of Straight and Narrow by Tatsurou (Recommended by GIGA-XISBASS)

    So I went to read a few stories in the series and I have to say that it's peaked my interest. I don't think I'll start with the two recommended stories above. I rather parody the story that started it all: Fortresshy: The Nine Fathers. I may have some ideas planned so I just need to ask permission.

  2. Fallout: Equestria by kkat

    This story may be a herculean task to do. Cause its a very long fic and also there's tones of possible spin off fics written by various authors I could also reference.

    Also for the parody itself, it will be toned down more to just poking fun at Fallout games, apocalypse clich├ęs, story flaws ect. Characters will be kept in character as much as possible.

    This is due to a PM I had with kkat and she said it was okay for parody as long as I do as stated above instead of the usual disgruntled spin. This is due to kkat not being a fan of insult comedy and that as bronies; laughter should be virtuous. Out of respect, I will follow to those terms as best as I possibly can.

  3. Changing Her Mind. Keeping Her Spine by Foals Errand

    A story with a funny premise that i can definitely work with. Plus, Foals Errand's stories was one of the few stories I read early on when I started out as a brony so I definitely want to do a story as thanks for that.

  4. The Star in Yellow by Blueshift (Recommended by denneylaw)

    I haven't read this story but the premise peaks my interest. I also heard that it was on Rainbow Dash Presents. So there may be some clever ways for me to reference that.

  5. The Undead Robot Bug Crusaders by Banjo64 (Recommended by King Cocoon)

    An interesting premise of a story. Have yet to read it but it sounds like a golden opportunity to parody

  6. Sweetie Bot - A Heart's Warming Tale by Grimweird (Recommended by King Cocoon)

    I've read this story before so there is opportunity to write a parody about this. We just have to wait and see.

  7. Ponyville the Town of Youth by Ironskull

    I have some ideas on how to write this but that will have to wait until after the story is completed

  8. Feedback by RQK

    An interesting premise, I have read the story and I'm curious if I can make a parody out of it. I just need to ask permission after I get some ideas on what to write.

  9. The Numbers Don't Lie by shortskirtsandexplosions

    I've read the story already so it will be interesting for me to write. Plus it's a story by shortskirtsandexplosions! Why would not want to parody a fic by him? Just need to ask permission once I get a rough draft ready.

  10. Just One Kiss by Fylifa (Recommended by FanOfMostEverything)

    Never read the fic myself but the fact that FanOfMostEverythin recommended this fic for me to parody gives me pause for thought.

  11. Dear Sweetie Belle by Jade Ring

    One of the first few sad fics I read on this site. I would like to tackle this mainly to see if I can make this sad fic into a comedic one. Need to ask permission first though

  12. Evolution of Harmony by Thornwing

    I have read the story and it is quite an interesting read. I just need to figure out how to make a disgruntled story out of it.

  13. Dressing Room by GaPJaxie

    Will need to read first

  14. Five Nights at Freddy's: MLP Style by JusSonic (Recommended by GIGA-XISBASS)

    Will need to read first

  15. The Traveling Tutor and the Librarian by Georg (Recommended by Biker_Dash)

    Will need to read first

  16. War Games Ponies Play by Minds Eye (Recommended by Biker_Dash)

    Will need to read first


Vaulted:

*These are the stories that I have chosen not to parody at all. That perhaps may change in the future but for now no.

  1. Bride of Discord by DisneyFanatic23

    When I went to PM DisneyFanatic23 asking for permission, the result were inconclusive. We were messaging back and forth a lot cause unfortunately I encountered a similar problem here that I had with kkat when it came to discussing how I should parody her story. And she never did reply to my last message... And I choose not to bother her any further because I did not want to come off as annoying.

    So I'm not sure if she ever was okay or not with me parodying her story but it's safe to assume that it's a no. Cause if I did do the parody assuming she meant yes and she did not actually like it. Well... I rather be safe than sorry so sadly Bride of Discord is not getting the parody treatment. A shame. I had a parody song of Dear Future Husband in mind for that particular story.

  2. On a Cross and Arrow by Conner Cogwork

    Back in 2016, I posted a PM to Conner Cogwork for permission to parody his fic.

    To this day... no reply... so I doubt I'll parody that story any time soon.

    A shame really cause I had this joke in mind where one of the Mane Six (sans Twilight) shouts at Disgruntled Twilight to go fuck herself to which she'll reply that she already did.

  3. Every Little Bit by The Descendant
    I had a ton of ideas for this story which was one of the first few fics I read on this site. Then back in 2016, I posted a PM to The Descendant.

    Problem is... he hasn't been online since 2016 before I sent him that PM. Because of this. I choose not to parody his fic. Rather sad for me especially since it was The Descendant that first greeted me when I joined this site.

  4. Doctor Whooves - The Series: Episode One - The Pinkie Conundrum by Loyal2Luna

    While most bronies will cite Doctor Whooves and Assistant or Doctor Whooves Adventures as their first experience to Doctor Whooves stories.

    For me, The Doctor Whooves Series by Loyal2Luna was what hooked me into any MLP X Doctor Who crossover. So I definitely wanted to parody this using references to the audio series mentioned above. Problem is that she hasn't been around since 2017 so its unlikely I'll get any opportunity to ask permission to parody her fic.

  5. Twilight Becomes a Dazzling by Twilight Lightning (Recommended by denneylaw)

    This story has potential to be parodied. Disgruntled Twilight would fit in here well as she slowly becomes one of the Dazzlings. However the author was last scene on Aug 12th, 2016 so I doubt I would get a reply by them if I bothered to ask for permission which is a shame. And I have yet to read the story nor do I have any interest to do so.

  6. Omnomnomicon by Bubble Boom

    When I asked permission to parody this fic, the author politely asked me not to and so I will respect their decision. But that won't stop me from referencing this fic in other story parodies I might do

Whenever you get around to sharing the Little Flashes parodies with the world, do be sure to let me know. You can be damned sure I am eager to see the fruits of your labor, especially given the previews you gave me back when you first started.

I recently read The Irony of Applejack series (including Aftermath and Advent). And I'll read the implied continuation of the series. And I would've recommended the series... until I saw it on the list.
I do know of a story that's a bit of a hidden gem. It deserves far more views than it currently has (under 2000 views in total). Buts it's a great story in my opinion. Forget me Not by Lupine Infernis is a story that starts off as a mystery and ends up turning into a horror story. It's a one-shot (it technically has two chapters, but the second is just a short epilogue). Honestly, I don't want to say too much about it, because whether you do a chapter based on this story or not, I want you to experience it for yourself. So it's a suggestion for Letters From Across The Disgruntled Multiverse as well as just a recommendation. To avoid giving away too much, it involves cases of partial amnesia, ponies disappearing, and if you're a fan of Doctor Who, do you know of the alien race known as The Silence?
