Story Scraps 4 · 2:41am Oct 18th, 2019

Alright folks, we're in uncharted territory now. This story idea didn't even have a name when I stopped really adding to it. It's not even a fully coherent plot, the middle part, of course, being the sticking point for me. Initially I wasn't sure if it was too big for one story and needed to be split into two or not.

Story Scraps Part 3 · 3:39am Oct 17th, 2019

To continue on with AJUO: Apocalyptica, I do have to admit this is where the idea has a whole started to get "fuzzy" if you will. I'd mentally charted out most everything up until this point in time, but when it comes to the middle of my stories everything goes up in the air in terms of what I definitively want. I start strong and end strong with ideas; I know where I am, and where I want to end up, but finding the route in the middle is the hardest part. With that said, let's continue.

Story Scraps Part 2 · 5:16pm Oct 15th, 2019

Hey all! Sorry to be late, but I ended up having technical issues. My computer crashed on me multiple times, and I needed to find out if it's a hardware issue or not. Continuing on from Sunday's exploration into the dunes of Saddle Arabia, let's focus back on Equestria, and take a look at what would have been AJUO 3.

"Hustlin Tom," the wizened old man exclaimed as he looked at the young lad looking up to him, a glint in his eyes as the mysterious music in the background swelled. "Hustlin Tom," he murmured again, shaking his head up and down in recognition, "Now that's a name I've not heard in a looong time." He shook his head a little more, "A long time." "You know him," the youth asked, his face brightening; his quest to find the strange old man out in the desert may have come to a close. "Well of

4 years on FiMFiction/next batch of chapters in two weeks · 3:10pm Mar 6th, 2016

It was while I was walking to a friends house last week that I realized I've been posting content to this venerable site for four years now. Four years! I'm amazed how quickly things have gone over that time. I'm also pretty amazed how much things have changed, both for me and the world as well. I'm very much a different person from who I once was: I'm not as lonely, nor am I as negative, and I'm learning to be a little more open and caring toward others. It's not by my doing that that's

*Cough* So I'm relaunching that rewrite · 1:34am Jan 18th, 2016

So about a year ago (holy crap, a year?! It feels like it was shorter) I decided to rewrite AJUO. Well, I'm not getting distracted by new stories, and I'm making an effort to get this finished once and for all. Starting tomorrow I'll post a chapter a day until I run out of chapters I've got stored up. There's no established schedule other than that, unlike most of the stuff I write, so it might be a few weeks before the next round of chapters is ready after I run out. It's my goal to get

One last delay · 7:45pm Nov 15th, 2015

Hello all! Once again I must ask for your forgiveness, but there won't be a new chapter this week. I was hoping I'd be able to balance out my commitments, including writing, as well as taking care of my looming tsunami of schoolwork before the term's end, but that's just not going to happen. Projects, tests, and other assignments make for a full schedule, and for this week recreational writing had to be put off. I'm aiming to post the final chapter next Sunday instead. Have a safe day, and

No chapter this week · 9:39pm Sep 27th, 2015

Sorry guys, but I've gone and backed myself into a corner. I know, I meant to submit a chapter later tonight, but sadly life has come in the way. This week is my university's midterm, and so my various teachers and professors were heartily generous in providing tests, assignments, and project milestones. Still, I have also been pretty lazy and procrastinated on writing the next chapter, so it wasn't beyond my control. I'm sorry for that, and I promise that I will do my best to get a quality
