    Legendary Grows

    I am taking a risk adding a story that isn't finished to my Legendary bookshelf but I never said Complete was a criteria, and I often believe the journey is more important than the destination, so here we go...

    Writing

    I am not a writer.

    I mean obviously I write some things. There is this blog post, other blog posts, being a human that lives in a society. Everyone has to write something sometimes. However I recognize that I could not, should not, ever write a story for this site. This is not a skill I have.

    Legendary

    For a while my favorites bookshelf had been bothering me. There were two stories that didn't really belong there. I felt compelled to favorite them because they were so well written, and I enjoyed them tremendously, but they didn't really fit the way I use that bookshelf. I add stories to favorites when there is something about them that makes me want to revisit them frequently. It isn't really a

    Self Insertion

    Up until recently I was ignoring anon and human stories. My reasoning was they were most likely lazy, or at least very awkward, self insertion stories. So I just filtered them out of my searches.

I am not a writer.

I mean obviously I write some things. There is this blog post, other blog posts, being a human that lives in a society. Everyone has to write something sometimes. However I recognize that I could not, should not, ever write a story for this site. This is not a skill I have.

Knowing that, there is a strange desire to try. I watch movies, watch shows, but would never want to try to create a movie or a show. Why is it that reading stories makes some part of me want to try it too?

Then, like any creative idea, I try for a little bit and as always quickly discover it takes too much time, it's too hard, and I'm bad at it. The old three excuses that prop up when trying any new thing. Nobody should expect to find anything they've never done before effortless.

Still, my writing is bad. I've tried a few times, it never gets better. I know some people have editors but the ideas need to at least be good first.

I do have a few ideas rattling around in my head. I want to write them just because I want to see them exist. There is one that has been at the forefront of my thoughts for over a year, so I might as well give a rough idea somewhere.

So my idea is simply, what if a single Earth Pony could destroy Equestria? What would that look like? What would they have to be like? What tools and knowledge would they need to possess? How would they overcome the many impossible obstacles before them? The villains in MLP are largely ineffective at what they do so I wanted to create a scenario in which a villain was both effective and unlikely. I was going to call the story and the OC Earth Pony "Shifting Gears"

More than just an idea I also thought about framing. I wanted the story to take place after Shifting Gears has succeeded in the form of them having kept a journal that Discord comes into possession of. The story would actually be from the perspective of Discord reading and reacting to this journal. Not first person Discord but the way stories following a single character do their thing.

Yet, even with an idea, and some small amount of drive, I am not a writer. This story will likely never exist. I also put Monster in my description for a reason. This would be a brutal story. It would not be liked by many, if anyone read it at all.

Also somewhat presumptuous of me to think I ever could write a full story anyway. For however brief a moment.
