    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:

    ETarget Praxis
    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.

In which I apologise for being a year behind schedule and note a remarkable coincidence · 12:20pm Oct 8th, 2021

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.

But the point of this blog is to say, well, firstly I'm still here, and secondly I'm still working on new stories. And with the G5 movie now out, it actually fired me up more, because a coincidental idea fell into my lap that both fits into what we know of G5 canon and also considerably strengthens some parts of the story which previously felt a bit stretchy. Like, it fits perfectly, almost suspiciously so. I was much surprised.

So, the upshot is that the ambitious two-stories-intertwined In the Blood/Do Not Be Afraid double-header is still very much go, along with a few other bits I have lying around. Thank you for staying tuned in the meantime, if indeed you still are.

Love,
TC

👀 seems spooky

Even though it started out based on a prompt from a long-forgotten Halloween contest, it's ended up gently contemplative (as with everything I ever write, seemingly) rather than scary. Well, depending on whether the nature of mortality and immortality scare you, I guess.

Glad to have you back!

Thank you! I've been here the whole time just reading, but I'd like to publish some actual new work soon!

"So, the five of you who are still following me"
Do people really stop following people just because they, the second "people", haven't done much in a while? I mean, what's the point? It's definitionally not as if they're posting annoying content or something; one'd get just as little following them as not following them, but the former means being notified if they do come back and start posting again.

Anyway, glad you're not dead, and that you enjoyed, or at least took inspiration from, the film. :)
