Songs of the Spheres' final "chapter" will be released, live, Sunday April 19 at 7:00 PM Universal time, 2:00 PM Central time, 1:00 PM Mountain time, the same way chapter 130 was released.

Fic Recommendation, Songs of the Spheres · 10:18pm May 8th

TSongs of the Spheres
Twilight Sparkle comes across a strange black ball with the power to travel to other worlds.

Songs of the Spheres by GM Blackjack.

This story is long. Horrifyingly so. And it is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.

But it's goddamn interesting. And even when I got to a chapter I didn't like, it never failed to keep me interested.

It's a mega-crossover. It's a musing on the nature of narrative and story. It's an exploration of quite a few philosophies.

What is Yiyxa? · 9:41pm Jan 27th, 2019

You may notice I have a new story. This new story is titled, simply and mysteriously, Yiyxa. This story is supposed to be very mysterious and get you to ask many questions about what's going on. So if you want a completely blind experience, I'd recommend avoiding this blog entirely.

But if you want some details...

SotS ending and THE FUTURE. · 7:15pm April 19th

157 chapters and 2.5 years. As of now, the longest story on fimfiction marked complete, and the fifth longest overall.

Songs of the Spheres has been a massive undertaking. It currently sits as the fifth longest fic on the site at 2.1 million words and has been a part of my life for so long it feels strange to be marking it complete.

SOMBRA'S CLIPSHOW 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO. Submissions open! · 12:51pm Mar 5th, 2019

Hey. Hey guys. Guess what.

We’re doing another Sombra’s Clipshow! There originally wasn’t going to be a second, but while I was going through editing SotS, two chapters in arc 7 needed to be consolidated into one because… the amount of exposition within them was really, really bad. So that left a hole in the plan. So I figured why not run another Sombra’s Clipshow? The last one went so well, let’s do it again! Except better!
