Keeping track of my projects · 2:04pm Dec 10th, 2021

Just figured I would make a list here of the things I'm working on just so I don't forget.
I might not actually finish the things on this list but it's just a note to myself.

  • Most urgently: Jinglemas entry (I don't even have an idea for the prompt I have currently :raritystarry:)
  • Appledash Longfic/novel (approx 20k written as of now, currently on hold due to lack of inspiration)
  • Synopsis of Appledashery (11 parts out of 21 complete, stopped before Roadtrip arc)
  • Periodically drawing for Appledash Daily Doodles (currently in colour; will return in normal daily-uncoloured in Jan 2022 probably)
  • Appledashery painting idea (??) mannequin nuzzle scene
  • Appledash crackfic (??? I wish I could write this but I'm just so tired aaaaa.)

Cancelled for the foreseeable future/postponed to next year

  • Surprise Appledashery Projects 1 & 2

Will update if more stuff comes to mind. I had Austraeoh arts and generic Appledash ideas in mind too, but... yaawn... we'll burn that bridge when we get to it. Just the Appledashery synopsis is already killing me... it takes ~4 hours for me to get through One Part... even the SoL ones... and the arcs after that are EVEN LONGER even though there is Cider Princess arc which is my favourite and what I've been looking forward to this whole time. :pinkiecrazy: It's okay. One at a time. One at a time. That's what I'm writing this down for, after all.

I'm already very intrigued by that Appledash longfic you're cooking up. I need an inside look :pinkiecrazy:

Heheheh, it's basically a Appledash first-meeting/origins story set before Twilight came to Ponyville which could possibly fit within canon, but it's crazy enough that it could be an AU. It's also set in Manehattan, so I'm kinda scared of publishing it since there might be a ton of inaccuracies... I've never been to the US, much less the city's real-life equivalent, so I'm just writing it like a generic city for now, sprinkled with some street names I grabbed off the Internet :rainbowlaugh:

Alright, now I'm really intrigued.

Also: I think Manehattan is a good setting. It's basically an Equestrian stand-in for NYC, though in real life Manhattan is but one of five boroughs in its home city.

But I don't think you should worry too much about the inaccuracies. Just keep in mind the general theme of its real-life counterpart. Manhattan is rich in culture and have a lot them mixed together (Italian, Chinese, Puerto Rican, etc.), so you can incorporate all kinds of interesting colorful characters in there. It's also the "economic engine" of New York City, meaning things like stock markets, Wallstreet, businesses, corporations, stupidly-high rent prices, etc.

And for miscellaneous stuff, here's some other things Manhattan/NYC is known for: Broadway Theatre, penthouses for the rich, pizza, Mets, Babs Seed, Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, celebs, and restaurants. Oh, and "The Big Apple" is a nickname for New York City (:ajsmug:). Hope this helps :twilightsmile:

Ahh, okay! Thank you, that helps a lot :twilightsmile:

The Appledashery synopsis sounds like a brutal amount of work, but it will definitely be appreciated!

Even more so when the second story finally updates and we need a refresher. No I'm not delusional, uncharacteristically talkative chair, I'm optimistic! :applejackconfused:

Also mark me down as interested in your Appledash fic! :rainbowkiss:
