About Amber


Gardens of Equestria

Hi there! I’m Amber Spark! (Formerly known as Novel-Idea). I currently live in Southern California and work for a video game company!

I’ve been writing MLP fanfiction since around 2016 when The Albinocorn inspired me with his magnificent Sunset Shimmer masterpiece, Long Road to Friendship (seriously, you should read it). Before that, I was mostly dabbling in creating cover art for various different authors on FimFic.

While a lot’s changed since I’ve first come here (most of all, me!), the core of my writing remains the same. I adore writing about redemption, hope, the realities of love, and authentic, relatable characters (with the occasional insane story about running for your life against a romantic narrative thrown in for fun). However, my favorite ponies are still Twilight and Sunset (with Moondancer a close second!)

I used to be the Project Lead for The Manehattan Project, the small “game studio” dedicated to creating Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm, a DLC-style story-driven mod. Sadly, due to a number of reasons, the project did shut down (though we did come out with two cool mods!)

While it’s been a long time since I really put myself into writing, after EFNW 2021, I found my passion and love for it once again. Like you, I’m often in the dark about what’s going to happen next, but I’m eager to enjoy the journey!

Hope you’ll have fun with me along the way!

<3 - Amber

    It's Been a While: Another Request for Help

    Hey friends.

    Sadly, I'm not here to talk about stories. Life honestly has been too hard to find time or energy to write. I'm dealing with a divorce, trying to get out of Blizzard and into a healthy company, and fighting so hard to work remotely that it took 9 months and a new diagnosis of PTSD to get them to let me have an accommodation under the ADA Guidelines and so much more. Life has been hell.

    Hearth's Warming Thoughts 2021

    I know a lot of you have friends and family to be with this holiday. I also know a lot of you are struggling this holiday with (sometimes former) friends and family who refuse to accept you for who you are. I know I am. Some of you are alone in a room, some of you are alone in a crowd. And some of you have people who accept you.

    Transformation: Penny, Amber, Albi, G5, and the Nook!

    It changed the future… and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future, or others would do it for us. It showed us that we have to care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly though, I think it gave us hope, that there can always be new beginnings… even for people like us.

    EFNW and Quick Update!

    I'm going to EFNW!

    So, yeah... it's been forever, huh? I haven't even finished Clear Skies yet! Well, a quick summary of what's going on.

    In the last few weeks, enormous things are going down at my workplace and it's been a total mess. Taken a lot of spoons to handle that. And frankly... the story just slipped my mind. I hope I can get back to the final two chapters the week after next.

    Birthday & Clear Skies!

    So it's my birthday today! It's been a while, but we could do another SkyPie/SunLight art post here in the comments! Show me your best material from the last year! We all need some cute after the insanity of this week!

    You'll also be happy to know that the next chapter of Clear Skies, Waystone, will be coming out tomorrow at 10 AM Pacific!

    Have a great one!

It's funny that you changed your nick. I searched for a long time until I found it. And yet the author caught my attention. Although I have not read all the works, but my feeling is to say "should not be ignored." I bookmarked it later until I finish the rest. Since for a long time, a lot of stories have accumulated that are waiting to be read.

IDEAL GOD BLESS. God loves you, now and forever! ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ)

I wuv it. Stay cool and safe out there! :pinkiesmile::heart:

D’awww! Thanks!

I'm sure you do, my dear. My concern, however, is that the site's staff may not share your admiration.

After all, there IS their stigma against roleplaying in the comments, for example.

2986012
I like those though!

2986009
Well, there's also the discussion forum that a group would have,
which would avoid cluttering up comment sections of either stories or blog posts.

2985997
A group? Nope! I always thought groups were for stories by multiple authors. While Little Truths was written by Ebon Quill, that's the only exception to the rule.

Hm, strange. Do you not have a group for your Wavelengths stories?

3044, which is part of Sunset Shimmer's hex code. Maybe? I dunno.

Glad to have you aboard on Positive Ponies, awesome possum!

If you ever feel down or need anything, feel free to come to me. :raritywink:

Side note: OMG, YOU JOINED!!! 😲💖

If you had to assign your version of Equestria (EDIT: sorry, I meant the Wavelength Equestria as a whole, was a touch fuzzy on that) a number, what would it be? Like on the multiversal scale? I like to get these numbers from the source, as no one else really has that kind of connection to there own world.

How in Luna's name was I not following you? This needs to be corrected.

Thank you! I don't see that really happening, but having it here is a good reminder.

Well if you decide to revive the project, I would like to offer to work on 2d assets, voice assets, and audio mixing.
