Mr Extra

I just wanna do a thing, make it cool, and get better at it. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

Current Projects

A short list of current projects I'm working on. Comments/criticism is always appreciated.

Other Stuff

Latest Stories

Lessons I've learned on FimFiction

Eiken - Stories don't end, not even when you get a "Happily Ever After", and every journey has consequences.
Fervidor - Every story is just a smaller part of a whole, and you have to decide which part you're trying to tell.
Somber - Plot armor makes you invaluable to the story, but beatings still apply.
AestheticB - Sometimes the best way to write a story is to change one thing about the world, and see what happens.
Pen Stroke - The best way to challenge an all powerful god is to put them in a room where smiting someone doesn't help.
SS&E - Sometimes it feels like it takes half an hour for your character to cross a room. Sometimes that's okay.
MadMaxtheBlack - Mary Sue's are hard to weed out. Make sure they're fallible, both when it does and doesn't matter.
TwistedSpectrum - The best thing about writing your own story is that you get to tell it the way you want. Even if other people don't like it.
Cold in Gardez - Stories about ponies are stories about people.
Kkat - Any virtue, taken to it's extreme, is a vice. Any vice, in moderation, is a virtue. Do better.
Unknown - People are scenery with faces. Describe them. And Focus on the in-between, stories aren't bullet points.


Plot Armor does what now? · 1:30am Sep 9th, 2017

I know it's kind of a trope, and people are using it less now, but I still see Plot Armor come up every now and then so I thought I'd put my two cents in on the subject.

When a character has Plot Armor it's generally taken that they are invaluable to the story and thus we can feel safe in the assumption that they will be around until the end. I would argue that that is largely true-- with one caveat: Plot Armor makes one invaluable to the story but beatings still apply.

Thank you for adding This Isn't War to your favorites! Feedback is always appreciated!

Thanks for the watch! though i dont know why hope you have as much fun as i have here!:pinkiehappy:

2035575 Well, it's nowhere close to being done (and probably won't be for at least a month or so). I'm sitting at about 1.5k right now and given that the outline is 1k... yeah. I'm kinda daunted by what I've gotten myself into.

2035255 I wouldn't mind, but unfortunately I don't have the time at the moment. Sorry for that.

2035266 Oh my, thank you kind sir.
