    Mega Ugh

    I was hoping to get the Epilogue for this story done by the end of last year. Obviously that didn't happen.

    Various things occupied me during the start of this year, but I was hoping to get some more clarity on what I wanted from it. It got further delayed because I was uncertain about it, and as time went on I wondered if it would be able to "live up" to how long it had taken.

    Holiday Cheer

    Merry Christmas folks!

    In addition to more material presents, and celebrating good times with what family I'm allowed to by circumstances, I feel pretty good about my participation in Jingelmas this year.

    Status Update

    Heya, folks. Been a while, huh?

    The pace of updates has really slowed down lately, for two reasons.

    One is 2020. It's not really anybody's best year, and I've been dealing with crap. I'm not gonna go into any specifics.

    Reference Counting

    So I mentioned I might do a quick accounting of all the references, so here they are. I might forget one or two, but if so I can edit this.

    The stuff with glacial flood is based off terrain in the Pacific Northwest, created by glacial outburst floods during the last ice age.

    Sunset’s netherrealm friends are from the Disgaea series.

    Next Chapter and Small Upkeep

    So I posted the third chapter for Sunset Shimmer is Not Supposed to Save Equestria. I also made the chapter titles more "natural" to read. Technically the first part of "Monday, Part 1" takes place on Sunday but oh well.

I was hoping to get the Epilogue for this story done by the end of last year. Obviously that didn't happen.

Various things occupied me during the start of this year, but I was hoping to get some more clarity on what I wanted from it. It got further delayed because I was uncertain about it, and as time went on I wondered if it would be able to "live up" to how long it had taken.

Then it got overtaken by events.

The original plan was that Sunset would use an alicorn-enhanced version of her mind-reading power to win a not-Starcraft tournament for the not-Starcraft rights. Of course, then this (content warning, allegations of sexual abuse and suicide) hits and anything involving them is a lot less funny.

So I'm just going to scrap that portion of the epilogue, and turn what's left into a much smaller one. I'll probably post what was left of the cut content in a blog.

My apologies again for the delay.

Did the Hong Kong stuff and "you have a phone" happen before the pandemic? Time has kinda lost all meaning, but Blizzard was already mired in controversy and stupidity long before today.

Yes. I kept hoping they learned their lessons from those, but it turns out there was nothing left to save.

Don't worry about "living up" to the delay. It's ready when it's ready.

As for adjusting things given the news, that's entirely understandable.

Take you time we’re not in a rush and doing an esport turnement still isn’t the worst just maybe a different game.
