    A tossed aside storyline

    I decided to release all my previously planned storylines that I had drawn up and I have a LOT of them, and some are vague, some are detailed, and more than a few aren't even MLP related. I think that by having to throw my ideas out in the wild, I could re-examine them. Ideas are only as good as the execution, so I don't believe any of them are good due to my failure to complete the stories

    Rock and Stone! Some writing prompts on the side

    So update from last time. I managed to find a new job by pure chance, and how I got hired is a tad strange to me. So I was walking around looking for buildings that had the whole "WE ARE HIRING" poster on the front, and whilst waltzing past some building under construction I took a look at one of the papers plastered on the side of it. Within a second of me stopping in front of the building to

    Compulsive lies

    I tend to lie through admission rather often. It's a bad habit of mine that happens either on accident or on purpose, and my most recent lie through admission would be in regards to my work. I quit my job. Had a two, more like three, week notice too. This important news has not been conveyed to literally anyone of my friends or family. This is not the first time I've done this, albeit the first

    Late Merry Christmas

    Here's another log for the sometimes monthly diary so I don't ever forget who I used to be once the years pass by. I don't particularly celebrate christmas all that much, but merry christmas all the same. This year's holidays was both disappointing and wasn't at the same time, and for a reason that makes me feel like a hypocrite upon trying to type it out, since I generally disliked

    Discussion on Writing: What does it mean to be right?

    Whenever you experience a story either it be from, movies, books, or video games there will come a point in the story where a truth is declared either it be justice prevail or something more nuanced like the meaning of determination and death. Usually how true it is becomes irrelevant as for the purposes of the story it being true rounds out the story. Doesn't really matter if Justice doesn't

Some Reading suggestions and my general activity · 2:55pm Oct 14th, 2022

I've found myself reading on a website called Royal Road as of late as one story on there took my immediate attention for a very special reason. Now for some basic backstory I used to be a Displaced writer here, many of those projects long since deleted or old chapters on current stories just hidden, so low and behold when I found a story called Displaced. The story even had the same premise as the displaced fics on this site with a minor change in that the powers gained aren't explicitly said to be from anything and of course, original setting. Quite an interesting setting too I might add. I would highly recommend people go read Displaced.

Now to actually give a minor review of it I would be remiss to mention that it is a very messy story. The best way to describe it is as a collection of short stories that never fully link up, they're all relevant to each other in small important ways with a cameo here and there, but you won't be following one main story. There are at least 6 different main characters whose stories don't connect with each other at all for at least 100 chapters. Now this isn't to say that the stories never interact before that, sometimes 2 of the main characters will intersect and have that be the new main plot for a few chapters before switching off to something entirely unrelated to focus on what the other main characters are doing. The thing is a mess of ideas and sorting through them has brought me great joy, especially the rather morbid tragedy of the first MC.

Another web novel I could recommend would be Dungeon Tour Guide. Its a very chill story with some moments of action, but really the entire story is centered around the main character trying to be a teacher and creates dungeons to tour new adventurers through as a form of lesson plan. I really like stuff with that kind of vibe. If you enjoy casual lit-RPGs this is a story for you, helps that Displaced fics often falls here.

Now one last one I will recommend that is in a similar vein as the last story but far more comedic yet tragic at the same time. Sunflower is a story about a sunflower that has gained sentience, as well as the ability to level up. Due to its unusual nature a not-bird thing takes it on a journey for unknown reasons, but the sunflower does not care for its worldview is that of a sunflower. The story itself is rarely direct as the Sunflower does not understand what it sees, so it gives a nice level of dramatic irony to everything that happens as things start to dawn on you. This is used to either great comedic effect, or its horrifying.

I hope others can enjoy these random webnovels I found since the last blog where I shared a few they were rather...bad. On another note I have the habit of updating my status on this site about what games I'm playing, I'm not sure if anyone has ever noticed that. If I'm playing a game you recognize feel free to throw something my way if you wanna chat or just need some company. I know in recent times company has been hard to come by for me.
