Ball's Fics

  • T The Terrible Singing of an Unrepentant Siren
    Sunset corners Adagio and vows to help her learn to sing again. Adagio eventually accepts—surely after some thought she'd be grateful for Sunset's help, and the reason everyone avoided Adagio wasn't because she was just that awful

  • T Distance to be Covered
    Dash had been accepted into the Wonderbolts. Twilight was going to be spending much of her time in Canterlot. But Dash knew their relationship could handle the distance. She knew it'd be fine—If only she could make herself feel like it.

  • T Like Sisters, Probably
    Since Dash said she’d be like my sister—about ten years ago now—I thought we’d really gotten pretty good at the whole “sisters” thing. Except the part where I had a total crush on her. But it was all cool. Probably

  • T Drinking Alone, Except with Two
    Whatever the problem Rarity faced, there was a Spike and a wine for it. She was confident he had gotten over his crush long ago, and he had since come to be someone she relied on for support and companionship. And surely he feels the same towards her

New Story Up! · 9:10pm June 21st

Alright, 'The Terrible Singing of an Unrepentant Siren' is done and submitted.

And... yeah, I was all ready to post it, like, three weeks ago and then realized it was terrible and had some huge problems and had to rewrite a huge chunk of it. Something about putting it up on fimfic before submitting and reading over it as if it was an actual story that I'd actually read on the site made me realize all the problems with it I'd been ignoring.

Hey, talk to me on Skype! I'm acreuball on there, too, so it's easy. Just mention you're from fimfic, and toss in your user name if it's different so I can know who you are!

And yo, I'm usually always open for prereading/editing for people. Um, romance stories mostly. Hit me up here or wherever if you want me to do that for you.

So I'm this guy who hails from Canada. I got a degree in fashion and textiles and I draw a bit too, cuz art school, and I did my avatar and my cover arts and a few other people's cover arts and stuff.

But actually, I want to be some kind of published writer when I grow up. Probably. When I'm not frantically trying to do fine art things that people won't hate. So... writing.

Oh, and I love ponies.

Rarity and Twilight is best pony. Also Sunset Shimmer and SciTwi is best not-pony. Octavia and Vinyl Scratch are best OTP along with Sunset and Twilight. I do mostly love all the ponies and all the pairings, though, so those are nearly moot points.

A couple of years ago, I happened to be talking to a man about pitching horseshoes. He told me his uncle had been a three-state horseshoe champion for several years running. He said he once asked his uncle how he'd gotten so good at the game, and the uncle said, "Son, you got to pitch a hundred horseshoes a day." That's the kind of advice beginning writers should listen to:

Keep pitching them horseshoes.

Oh cool! It's crazy, I never expected this story to still be getting so much attention after all this time! Really, it's thanks to theLostNarrator for the amazing dramatic reading she did, I think!

And thanks for follow! :twilightsmile:

That's how I found out about it! Great story by the way :raritywink:

WOW!! That's so awesome! Thanks for letting me know about that! :raritystarry:

Congrats in getting your story in WatchPony's top 10 shipfics. Your Vinyl x Rarity fic was no. 10

Hey! Actually, I just watched that podcast today, shortly after I stared following you!

I was just gonna watch a bit of it, cuz you're friggin hilarious in your blogs and fics and so I just had to hear you actually talking, and then I ended up pretty much watching the whole thing. Hoh mah gawd that part with reading the Kama Sutra out loud in a clothing store, that was friggin great! And then you mentioned 'Mercy, Mercy, Mercy', and I was like, well shit. I wrote that! Definitely was not expecting that plot twist. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!

Anyway, I had read your blogs on romance writing before, and was thinking about them the other day so came back to reread them, then got caught up in your other blogs, then I realized I really should be following you because I definitely need to be notified ever time one of those comes out! Also the fics of yours I've read are fantastic! 'Would Bang', definitely, is just excellent.
