About 1/2 way done now. · 6:31am Nov 4th, 2017

Just a small update on my existence for those wondering. Still here, but I kind of got caught up in things with real life and also lost the interest to write for a bit, which is annoying because I was ecstatic at all the new follows Complex Apartments brought in. :pinkiehappy:

Who the heck is this??

I've been editing stories on here for quite awhile, now taking a crack at writing and thankfully I am getting some good responses to it. I read quite a bit, but about 90% of it is Romance. For me, Trixie is best pony, but Fluttershy and Pinkie are close seconds. I get twitchy when a story has bad grammar as I've been reading since I could walk.

I tend to comment alot on stories and I seem to have a good/bad habit of bringing up various discussions/arguments in the comments sections about them. I find the discussions fun, so hopefully no one takes offense to them.

I've edited for quite a few people. most of it has been fics involving Trixie as I know the character pretty well and that interest has brought me into contact with several writers on here.

Working as a Veterinary Tech on a military base now and having fun with that. The slowness at times helps me keep up with my reading.

If you are a Trixie writer and need some help or editing, message me, as I like to think of stories involving her as my specialty, I just don't have time to be a full time editor often these days, but I do get lulls in activity sometimes.

Multiple Times. I was quite happy with that episode/mini movie. A few logic oddities, but nothing majorly wrong. Though it does make me wonder just how often Starswirl or other ponies threw away stuff they didn't want to deal with into other dimensions.

I'd like to think that Starswirl expected the human world to be a magical dead zone where he could safely dispose of supernatural dangers.

Sunset unfortunately, permanently gummed that up with her selfish and destructive behavior. Bringing magic into the human world likely lead to the unleashing of new calamities.

I wonder if that could be the focus of the Equestria Girls series: The HuMane 7 battling the various magical threats that are coming out of the woodwork, with Sunset learning a new friendship lesson each day, while imparting lessons herself.

Agreed, it would make Trixie a better person than who Sunset used to be as opposed to going down to her level like she did when under the Dazzling's influence in my stories. When I get to starting that series up again it won't change what I do though. Forgiveness and friendship are major paths in MLP, but there are limits to it. I don't think Pinkie should be able to make friends with everyone she wants to for example. Trixie in this is more wanting to put Sunset behind her now and move on, not bring her up or interact with her. They've hurt eachother in ways that stronger or better people might get over, but at least where I left the story and with what I have planned at the moment, Trixie is not one of those people.

That's...pretty realistic, I guess.

Sunset's levels of bullying were pretty damn extreme. But her attempt to "make amends" was what made me dislike Sunset, at least in your series. Her apology to Trixie was really, really weak and insensitive. If Sunset had done something more meaningful (like, return the Spring Fling crown she stole) maybe Trixie would be more open to forgive. Instead, Shimmer was like, "Sorry for being mean, by the way, dropout of another contest you worked hard for." Most people (as you say) would be pretty enraged by that, even if they weren't being brainwashed.

So yeah, avoidance is the best thing the two can hope for.

I recently watched Forgotten Friendship, and it was wonderful. Did you watch it?

Did it surprise you to see Trixie trying to help out Sunset, and Sunset and Trixie getting along.

I wasn't against it at all, I loved the dynamic they had, and Trixie is just a really good counterpoint to most other characters. She isn't at her best in the cartoons when she is on her own, but she is a wonderful foil or partner to other characters. She makes Starlight Glimmer a much better character to me.

Because if you combined your series with Forgotten Friendship, it would make Trixie a lot better: because she gave assistance to someone who destroyed her socially and physically.

Anyways, what were your thoughts on Sunset and Trixie working together?

It was a awesome episode and anything that opens the door to more feasible romance stories is always good to me. I suppose we'll see if Trixie and Sunset actually become friends in the future *meaning seeing them hanging out and what not, unlike the utter disappearance of most characters the mane seven claim to befriend in the EQG universe*.

And if not, well, it is also wonderful fuel for other stories of obsession or feelings of betrayal. :pinkiehappy:

Hey Phaoray,

I recently watched Forgotten Friendship, and it was wonderful. Did you watch it?

Anyways, watching it drew me back to re-reading your stories, specifically your miniseries involving EQ!Maud and EQ!Trixie. I did that specifically because of your headcanon involving Sunset and Trixie.

It made me REALLY dislike Sunset, and I felt Sunset should have done something really meaningful to make it up to Trixie. Like, returning the Spring Fling crown she stole from her head.

But you stated that Trixie and Sunset were never going to be friends, just "agree to disagree" types at best.

It was a nice short story between Vinyl and Octavia and well done. You had some good back and forth dialogue between them and nice scene detail. Plus Vinyl's frantic back pedaling from the previous night on it being a 'one night stand' was amusing. Octavia giving her a chance after seeing that Vinyl took Tavi's concerns over her bow tie seriously was a nice touch. :pinkiehappy:
