    Feeling better. Also, an interview.

    So my temperature is almost back to normal and I feel a lot better. Hopefully in a month or two I can get an antibody test and find out if that was C19 or just flu. Anyway, either way, doing better.

    I'm also going to be doing an interview for the midair pony faire on twitch. It'll be on Horizons, Homelands, and Worldbuilding in general.

    C19, cons, and other stuff.

    So 2020 sucks. It just sucks. I'm sick with something and waiting on a C19 test. Hopefully it's just a flu or some junk.
    But there is something good happening on the 25th. Ponyfest Online is a discord con and I'm going to be holding an hour long discussion on character creation, evolution and development.

    Homelands isn't dead but it is on life support.

    I've written myself into a corner with homelands. It's been that way since April. On one hand I don't want the story to pad out any further. I want to get the characters to Roam for the next arc of the story. On the other, I want to avoid 'character X lives because of plot armor.' I'm hopefully going to find a way to make it work.

C19, cons, and other stuff. · 8:59pm April 21st

So 2020 sucks. It just sucks. I'm sick with something and waiting on a C19 test. Hopefully it's just a flu or some junk.
But there is something good happening on the 25th. Ponyfest Online is a discord con and I'm going to be holding an hour long discussion on character creation, evolution and development.

and the website is

https://ponyfest.horse/

and my time should be 7:30 EST- 8:30 EST / 4:30 PST-5:30 PST. Then I should be doing head to headcanon.

I'll be talking about character creation, how to evolve a character, and develop them over the course of your story.

I hope folks will be able to join me. I'm not sure which room I'll be in but I'll put in an update when I know.

Sorry to hear that, all the best for you, Somber!

- Totally agree with that. Hope the test will be negative and that really just a flu. Year really started a bit wrong and mess everything to fast. But... now we all can cosplay pony from wasteland in nice respirators, if someone have them... Heh.
Take care, don't force yourself too much, health is most important thing than anything else.

Damn, stay safe dude. Hopes it’s not too serious

I really hope it will be okay for you.

Ah, dear. Good luck, Somber.
Oh, good luck with the con, too! I'm not on Discord and expect to be busy at that time anyway, but I hope it goes well. :)

Damn, now those are some shite news there. Hope it'll be alright for ye Somber, stay strong.

be well D:

Well think of it this way, if it is the virus, and it doesn't kill you, then that means you'll have antibodies for it and will no longer have to worry about it into the future. If it does kill you you'll have the only true freedom

Unfortunately, there's a risk of reinfection with this bug. If you have an autoimmune response, your body may not 'learn' the right antibodies to fight it when you're reexposed to it.

God let it be just a flu

Really looking forward to your discussion panel, and really really hoping for you to getting well and having a remainder-of-the-year that isn't garbage for once.:fluttershysad:

Hello there Somber!
ugh. Sorry to hear that. I hope u'll get well soon.

and, i'll try to be there.. on dsc i mean.

Hope it's just the flu or something and you get better soon (I had one friend go to the ER recently with worries about C19... said it was only pneumonia in his left lung, but he went home shortly after and got better).

I'm looking forward to your panel!
Your fic 'Dear, Rarity' is still one of the best short stories I've read, and you've got a damn good grasp on characters and character development, so will love to hear your thought process and insights (and your latest Wonderbolt fic was also awesome, and again very much character-focused).

Take care!

More than ever hoping you'll be alright, sir... Please take care of yourself, and try to enjoy the virtual con as much as you can.

I hope you can recover soon.

I hope that you're okay... it's a scary time.

looking forward to your discussion panel.you areone of my favourite autors on this site. Curently I'm reading project horizons and i realy love it. I think it is one of the best books that i have ever read. Definitly in my top 3 favourite stories ever. ( top 3 becouse i cant decide wich one i like most. but at the moment definitly number 1 on that list. )
There are not many books that can make me cry but reading this story i cried more than once. So i just wanted to say thank you for your amazing work and keep writing. hope that you get well soon.

Good thoughts on your health -- that you've dodged the bullet, hopefully, or that you're recovering as quickly as possible if not! :unsuresweetie:
