RQK has been working on a non-pony story. · 12:28pm Apr 13th, 2020

Hi all,

I've been doing a fair bit of writing recently. Nothing pony-related, mind you, but I have been keeping the skills sharp. I've previously mentioned that I had gotten into Dungeons & Dragons and had been writing up my adventures. I've covered the character I played between January and September of 2019.

I also previously mentioned that I wanted to complete this before I returned to working on Retrograde.

Divergence - There exists a mathematics paper · 8:44am Mar 19th, 2020

Hi all! Some exciting stuff in here.

A friend of mine, FringePioneer, wrote a mathematics paper that delves into the details of the mathematics behind the time dilation seen in Divergence. It's very thorough and very much proves the mathematics used in the story; it gives a rigorous definition and then concludes by recovering some of the numbers that I myself claimed within the story.

Divergence - Book version available for your procurement · 12:30pm Mar 10th, 2020

Hi all!

I just wanted to let you know that the book version for Divergence is now available.

The price without shipping is 11.79 US Dollars. With this, all four of my published novels are now available. This is the extent of what I plan to publish. So, per past recommendations, now is a great time to snag both this book and the ones that have come out before it in one fell swoop (which will certainly save on the shipping costs).

Divergence - End of Line · 3:00pm Mar 1st, 2020

Well, here we are again. We’ve reached the end of Divergence and the end of the Crystal Ball Trilogy.

It’s time for another post-script. I’m going to take a few moments to talk about Divergence’s development, especially since so much happened both in the writing itself and in real life during its time. I’ve so much that I could and want to talk about.

There are, obviously, major unmarked spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned!

Divergence - An Essay on Consensus and its Relation to the Greater Reflections Multiverse · 9:39am Feb 27th, 2020

So I wanted to take a little bit of time to examine the events of Consensus within the broader scope of the greater multiverse that I’ve somewhat built up. This discussion attempts to contextualize Consensus in the context of Reflections, which is the multiverse-hopping story which I wrote between Substitute and now.

Feedback - Important gif that shows ball behavior · 5:45pm Jan 31st, 2020

This is a bit of a random one, but I was browsing through my daily memes and I came across this gif that perfectly shows what would happen if you held the crystal ball and rotated it in your hands or whatever. I just had to share this. This is perfect.

Divergence - Draft Complete · 8:42pm Jan 21st, 2020

I just did it.

After two years of on and off work, I've completed the draft for Divergence. And with this, I've completed the trilogy, my pride and joy, which I started so long ago. The final comes in at 114.5k words (slightly less than Substitute). This might change because edits have to happen, and there are things I might clean up between now and when everything is fully published.

Divergence - A deleted scene · 6:41am Jan 21st, 2020

So I'm looking through my notes and getting the last bits together. And I found a scene that I had written quite a while ago, sometime before I actually wrote chapter nine. I had originally written this scene to explain one of the big things in the story, but I ended up writing a fairly simple version for chapter nine. As such, I ended up not using this scene in the story; if I had, I probably would have put it into chapter ten.

Naturally, there are spoilers ahead. You have been warned.
