    *sighs* You know you're a nerd when ...

    You spend time thinking of the justification for a type of operating system name to be near constant with its actual name in the AU of an AU (it's AUs all the way down, the earth is flat and balanced atop them all, shut up and deal with it) and you manage to think of something that fits with the various relationship structures of the different ideologies in that AU, and make it sappy enough to

    State of the Writer: No, My Last Blog Was Not My Site Leaving Blog - This One is My New Works Blog

    Hi, welcome to the show. I don't have a creative name for this blog.

    Anyway. Let's clear a few things up: a few folks were very confused on my last blog and read it as me leaving rather than me just closing the book on Respite verse. So, here we go.

    I'm not gone. I'm quiet, but I'm still here. And I'm writing.

    I'm writing quite a lot actually.

    And that's all, folks

    It took me some time to come to this decision. I referenced it on another story, but ... well, it's official now.

    Everything I had for Out of Love is now on site for your enjoyment (or not, you might not like where these chapters were heading things). And with that, I am closing the book on the Respite verse for good.

    Christ, fuck it

    Listen. Y'all.

    This fucking fandom, I swear.

    Let's make it goddamn easy on everyone:

    Glorifying ideologies that promote hate, intolerance, supremacy, etc etc etc? It's shit. What do I mean by glorifying?

I'm happy with something I wrote to describe angry drinking Tempest, so, y'all get to see it:

The sting of liquor did a fair job at dimming that of yet another dead end.


A hoof slammed a shot glass down upon the counter with such force, its nearby cousins jumped. “Another,” the mare called.


Across the counter, a burly stallion frowned, nearly hidden by his scraggly beard. “Don’t you think you’ve had enough, miss?” he grunted, eying the remnants of her efforts to kill off her brain cells as quickly and painfully as possible. “Ain’t need the damned Guard to come in here because some drunk went an’—hurrk!


A lasso buzzed around his neck like a swarm of furious bees and jerked him down so that he was eye to eye with his lone patron. The mare glared at him through harsh cold blue eyes. The pale scar tracing her right sent shivers down his spine. “I said,” Tempest Shadow growled. “Another.


The stallion nodded quickly and forced a nervous smile. Her spell fizzled into sky blue mists, and he bolted off to find another bottle of Iron Hoof’s Motherbucker No. 5. Hopefully, that would have the kick to put this walking timebomb out, at least.


In the meantime, Tempest Shadow let her head fall to the counter with a thud. Through the haze of alcohol and rage and humiliation, she took a moment to think—and then cursed the day she was born when she still could.


And again, when she found herself dissatisfied with the slur in her words.

So there. Eventually y'all will know what this is from.

>implying I still fucking do anything on this site.

Motherbuckers Nos. 1 through 3 are illegal for sale as anything but degreaser or rocket fuel. Posession of No. 4 is technically a war crime.

Wow...poor Tempest...I really want to know where this'll be in, it sounds interesting

No. 5 is only unregulated at this time because the ponycrat in charge of the Liquor Affairs Department retired and was not replaced due to budget cutbacks. Having to suddenly support three royal castles instead of one--with the two new ones being made of rare, exotic materials requiring maintenance not in the long term planning literature--threw a small truck full of wrenches into the gears of the Royal Office of Budget and Planning... :twilightoops:

5297385
said truck of wrenches and gears were obviously not useful for the maintenance requirements of said castles. :twilightsheepish:

Oh, they're very useful. Essential, even. But as any master mechanic will tell you, even though there are times and circumstances when sudden kinetic application of a wrench is warranted, there are many, many more where it is vehemently not. :raritywink:

Oooooo can’t wait to see where this goes. Well written Tempest is always a treat.
