As one of Equestria's more popular writers, you relish the chance to get away and work on your newest romance novel and some side projects, when you meet a particular yellow pegasus who happens to be a fan of your work and oddly enough, you're a fan of hers as well... She just wishes you weren't, because "It's so embarrassing..."

And here it is, the last in my "Mane 6" stories, By a Fireplace! This story, like all the others, takes place during all the others and has its own little niche in the timeline. I've had a lot of questions about the continuity of my stories, but please bare with me. I've got a plan, a timeline, and graphs.

Anyway, about the story itself... Hmm... Well, nothing really special or no warning I should post... This should be a pretty tame story, but if there's a development even I didn't expect, I'll make sure to put it here.

Well, enjoy!

ALSO YAY ITS OUT:rainbowkiss:

GentlemanCreeper has a new story?

:yay: I love your other stories and I can't wait to see how this one turns out! :pinkiehappy:

I can already tell this one's gonna be good. Just the thought of the personality difference between this character and Fluttershy is enough to make me giddy with anticipation!







And so it begins...

i look forward to this.

Why am I sensing a feeling of animosity radiating from you Creeper? Almost like this is like a like a giant middle finger to some annoying fans. I'm sorry if we got on your bad side.That main character...wow if anyone needs some clover and or some Ambien, it's that guy. I still look forward to more.

Peace Out

Looking forward to more

Already love it. Keep up the amazing work!

Been waiting for this story to start for a loooooooong time. I trust you won't disappoint with this one.

I'm excited :D

Pretty good! I like how you made foreshadowing of this in Freudian Slip !
Wait a minute....... “Hey, hey! How’s my favorite bestseller?”
I see a lot of Alan Wake references in here. (Even though it's pure coincidence)
Can't wait till next chapter!

You my good sir have again gotten me hooked in a romance fic good job:pinkiehappy:

A bit of unessesary cussing imo, but I'll track.

Things are about to get interesting.

Heh, I'm going to have fun with this, just you watch.
wat? This is far from a giant middle finger... Hell, if I was mad at anyone, I would make it apparent, not voice it through a story. The main character in this is more abrasive right now but SPOILER ALERT was actually more kind and plucky before he got roped into the more dry, business side of the writing bizz. You'll see what I mean later... And what makes you think I'm mad at anyone? :fluttercry: I love all you guys!
It'll serve a purpose later, trust me. It's far from pointless, as you'll see in chapters to come.

He's a writer that writes a lot of romance stories and is constantly being hounded by his supporter and fans. Maybe I assumed too much and looked for subliminal undertones when there weren't any. Sometimes people will throw bit and pieces of themselves into characters. To assume is to make an 'ass' out 'u' and 'me.' oops. :twilightsheepish:
As long you ain't pissed.


I can't ever see a valid reason ever to have one of those disgusting words.

There really is no justification and it takes away innocence that could've been a good characteristic of the story. Lotsa authors fall into this trap, using words only meant for mature audiences when they could also tailor it for everypony. This is the reason I still like disney cartoons, as does others, such as parents and their impressionable, fragile youth.

Please don't interpert this as hating on the story. I really do see potential in the story, and wasted potential in any way, shape or form is a terrible waste of talent, which, my good sir, you quite frankly have a lot of. :moustache:

Or you could just ponify the cusses. Just my two bits.

Fluttershy... with the grumpy uninspired writer archtype. This... is going to be FUN.

Damn...This is a GREAT START!:pinkiehappy:

Seriously dude, don't worry about it. You guys are awesome, I could never be mad at my fans. But you are right, you might find some undertones of my personality or bits and pieces of myself in a character every now and again. But not in this case.
Well, I've noticed as my stories have progressed, they've become more mature. But I'll explain to you why I used angry words exactly... The "You" in this story is rather stressed, angry, and getting more abrasive as he is getting pulled into the more lifeless business side of his passion. Of course he's angry and when you've got someone like Trump Card calling him at all hours of the day, he was bound to lose his temper. Once again, sorry if I offended, but this is how I feel he'd act given the situation. But just watch, you'll see his character develop a lot.

Can't wait to see where this goes Mr. Creeper!

I understand your motive, but I still don't think it's really nessesary, given cleaner alternatives.
Besides, the seriousness of the situation could be undermined if you used phunny phrases.
Funny + Seriousness + Good Story Development + Good Character Development + ????= profit.
Just a suggestion, though. :rainbowkiss:

"The whole point of swearing is that it ain't appropriate!"
- Kaywinnit Lee Frye.

They're supposed to be harsh, rude and angry - "Oh gosh golly darn" doesn't put across the same emotional message as "Oh, for f*ck's sake!" because the former would make the character look like he was dancing around and trying not to offend Trump Card. In my opinion, dancing around the cursing would have made the character look weak, and happy to bend over for his awful agent. Honestly, I don't think Trump Card given his apparent behaviour so far would have given our hero what he wants if he'd skimped out.


Why not use words that only sound like swearing?

Us bronies have invented some.

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss....................sorry I HAD TO DO THAT:trollestia:

355717 btw she is bigger than anything in the choose bar....sry had to say it


Oh joyous!!!! :pinkiehappy: Its finally out!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

It's funny, but my ponysona is a writer (like I hope to be) and mai waifu is Fluttershy . . . . . ME GUSTA! Seriously though, you've got a really good hook going in!



Oh yay! A new story! I wonder how this will turn out. *see's hiatus update*

Oh my sweet baby Luna thank you

Ah, been waiting for this one to update for a while now :raritywink:

During this story, I shall call myself Alan Wake and my best friend/editor/other thingies Barry!

Yes! Finally! Great job as always!

It's always the shy ones.:ajsmug:
And wow. So many references.



Well done.

-insert Butterscotch Sundae reference joke here-

I have waited so long for this...and now....

What's with it and having everyone portray Fluttershy as an erotica writer as of late? That being said, it is quite funny. Looking forward to more GentlemanCreeper!
