    I won't be deleting the account, because it's been pointed out to me before that some people somehow found something they liked in my stories and it's not really fair of me to take it away, but I'm done with Fimfiction. Thanks for having me. Bye.

    In which I apologise for being a year behind schedule and note a remarkable coincidence

    So, the five of you who are still following me will note it's been a while since I published a story, and even longer since I teased my big upcoming project - nearly a year since that blog, in fact! I'm so sorry.

    Unhelpful notes

    Falling asleep last night, right on the cusp of sleeping, I suddenly had what I thought was a brilliant idea for a story. Grabbing a pen I sat up and wrote it down, so I wouldn't forget it in the morning.

    My scribbled notes say "A place in every heart" and then underneath it just says "good idea for a story! CADANCE IS IMPORTANT have to use third person not first though, Important!"

    Still here, still writing, stay tuned

    On the one hand, I'd hoped to have finished a couple more stories by now. On the other hand, I'm still working on those stories, rather than this latest absence being another thing where I can't ever seen myself writing again, so... yeah! Stay tuned, stories 18 to 20 (Celestia/Luna crossover spectacular, and a Meadowbrook romance that's missed the deadlines for the contests it was meant for) are

    I wrote a deeply stupid thing

    For the Cadance is a Terrible Mom competition:

    Cadance thinks it's important a Crystal Princess lives up to her heritage. Shining Armor isn't so sure.

    Nailah pointed me towards this contest and I immediately thought about, well, this. Then I thought of the title and decided I had to do it.

(Disclaimer: I do not, in fact, believe Cadance is a terrible mom, but I liked this idea too much not to write it.)

Also I probably spent longer trying to find screenshots of the exact three facial expressions I wanted for the cover than I did writing the actual story. I'm selling this well, aren't I? Hey, it got me back in the featured box again, because of course it did - only the fourth time that's ever happened to me in over two years, so, um, there's that. Anyway, enjoy! I had fun.

Thanks! Of course when it happens it's not for something like Away or Dragon Lord Ember Skips Work or You Betcha! but rather this, but I'm not complaining! :twilightsmile:

Glad you're still able to enjoy it even if it's not for one of the stories you'd more prefer it to be. :)

Oh, absolutely! I'm still always jazzed (and more than a little flattered) whenever anypony chooses to use their time to read and upboop any of my stories!
