    Endings is closed.

    The story submission folder has been closed.

    If you submitted the story to the site and forgot to add it to the folder, pm me.

    If you're one of the new authors who's stories still need manual approval, don't worry, we'll get it taken care of in the morning.

    Go read my vanity entry to the contest.

    Less than 24 hours remain

    I'm in a hotel room and up too late. Lots of late entries are pouring in, and I'm sure there's plenty more to come.

    It's September.

    Two weeks remain for the deadline to the Sunset Shipping Contest. We're at 13 entries so far, and I know a lot of people are still hard at work.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer, and wish you all the best of luck on getting your entry in.

    Also, I've been working on a vanity entry to the contest myself, which should be ready shortly for your reading perusal.

Sunset Shipping Contest Print now available! · 2:38pm May 13th

Hello folks. I guess I haven't posted here in awhile, and that's not likely to change past this. But still, I have good news.

The print copy of Chasing the Sunset, a collection of all 13 winners for the three Sunset Shipping contests is now available on Lulu.

Hardcover

Paperback

This collection features the following stories:

Dappled Shored, by MaxKodan

The Girl Who Couldn't Change, by R5h

...But it Often Rhymes, by Posh

Driver's Side, by DrakeyC

Lost in Paradise, by NaiadSaglotaOar

One Night in Buckkok, by StillInBeta

Neither Rhyme, Nor Reason, by Posh

Stopping by Woods on a Sunny Afternoon, by King of Beggars

Small Insignificant Things, by DrugOverlord

Arrhythmia, by Posh

WORLD IS IN DANGER. DON'T TALK TO ME., by Aragon

A Letter To My Lover, and One For Myself, by King of Beggars

Zealots of Canterlot, by Aquaman

All of these fantastic stories are of course, still available for free on the website, but if you'd like to own a collection you can hold in your hands, you now can. As was promised, all of the contest winners have already had copies ordered for them, as part of their prizes.

Note: This collection is being sold at print cost, meaning there is no profit generated from sales, except to Lulu, the printing company.

Special thanks to RBDash47, of Ponyfeather Publishing, who toiled many long hours to get this collection polished enough for printing, since I certainly don't have the book formatting skills to make it shine.

Thanks again to all the authors who submitted stories for these contests. They were a hell of a fun time. I've pretty much moved on from the fandom at this point, but there are still plenty of good memories.

Well, I know what I'm getting. Also, if that profile pic change means what I think it does, hi sister!

Well, take care, wherever life leads you. đź‘‹

I cannot for the life of me figure out who that girl Sunset is shipping herself with is. Could she perhaps be the embodiment of all Sunset shipping, the personification of all Sunset’s possible loves, made manifest?

Also likely: it is a Smoochbot. Sunset built it so she could make out. Its name is 5M00C4 and it can kiss with the force of ten thousand hydraulic pistons and apply hundreds of pounds of force per square inch.

I forget what this blog was about. I think Oro is selling knives?

5517866 promised me four dollars to edit his stories and make them good enough to place in the finals of these contests, a hefty task, as anyone who's ever seen one of his first drafts would know. I fulfilled my end of the bargain, but when I went to collect my payment, he pointed at something behind me and ran away when I looked. I tried again a week later, and he did the exact same thing. Can't believe I fell for it twice. The third time he set off a smoke bomb, and the fourth time he faked his death and skipped town. This went on for nearly two years, until last week, when he finally made good on the debt. But he paid me in Blockbuster giftcards.

Please help spread the word about P*sh and his many crimes against humanity.

5517870 Am I truly a bad person for identifying someone stupid, then exploiting them? No. In fact, that makes me the greatest person who ever lived. Even greater than Joshua Abraham Norton.

Also a quick shout-out to Soup Boy here, as well as AndrewRogue and Hugmuffin, who worked with me on all three installments. I credit Andrew, specifically, with how well the first story turned out. If he hadn’t threatened to kill me, and replace me with a replicant, I never would have redrafted the story to make Cheerilee less creepy.

:twilightsmile:

I'm not much of an EQG fan, but my bud Ice Star highly recommends I check this out, so I might have one pressed.

I can reliably trust his taste.

Good to see this compilation published at last.

Wherever your future takes you, Oro, I hope it's to good, happy places :twilightsmile:

He was a good dude. I had some good times hanging out in his IRC circa 2011, and working on that visual novel adaptation. Hell, I still have all the old files somewhere.

Thanks for all the great stories, and thanks for getting so many people to write so many more great stories.
