The Sentient Cloud


I'm The Sentient Cloud, a now-retired fanfiction writer from New Zealand. If you're looking at this, then you've probably already found your way to either "The Piano Man" or "Those Who Came Before".

Catchy title, right? Right. Moving on:

Some of you may have noticed a large lack of... well, anything, recently.

Updates on /everything/ · 6:42am May 20th, 2013

Okay, so as a little note: I am still around, and I am still working on the final Piano Man Chapter.
But, that brings me to an interesting point, that being; I'm not entirely sure I'll keep writing for FIMFiction once it's over. I'm not saying I won't, but it's a possibility.

Hard at Work · 9:27am Apr 16th, 2013

I know I've been very quiet update-wise as of late, so I feel it's best that I put up a quick blog post.

As per normal, Those Who Came Before is still on hiatus until I've put out these last two Piano Man chapters. I just felt I should reaffirm that. The first of the two-part epilogue for The Piano Man: Act II is close to completion too. I apologize for the long wait.

Google "The Piano Man" · 10:30am Mar 2nd, 2013

Every now and then, I Google my stories, just to see how far down the list they pop up. Obviously, The Piano Man has never been high on the search results unless you include 'FIMfiction' in the search bar.

But...

Seriously. What.
WHAT.

How the hell did this happen? When did my story start competing with the song it's named for on Google? How is that even possible?!

Very Important Updates · 11:02am Feb 2nd, 2013

Okay everyone. Here's some important news for both The Piano Man and Those Who Came Before.

Due to the fact that The Piano Man is thrillingly close to its conclusion, I'm going to be focusing on that. Its next chapter currently weighs in at satisfying 3,700 words, and it isn't even finished yet. (It's going to be big enough to demolish my view-word ratio, which is disappointing. I'm sure it'll be fixed some time after the story concludes, though.)

The Sentient Cloud Takes a Holiday · 10:24am Jan 18th, 2013

The title says it all. In 9-11 hours from now, I'm going on holiday for 7-8 days, in a location with sparse internet. I leave you all with the next Piano Man chapter and the aforementioned 9-11 hours in which I will be able to reply to comments before heading off.
Enjoy your week, everyone. For me, it's time for some fun in the sun.

P.S; I'm taking my transformer tablet with me, so I'll still be SLIGHTLY productive. My main priority is relaxation, however.

- TSC.

Piano Man Update · 10:00am Jan 14th, 2013

Obviously it's been a good month since my last Piano Man update. Rest assured, I am working on it. The delay has once again been caused by writers block, and my decision to scrap what I already had to rework the chapter. (I wasn't pleased with what had been produced.)

New Year's Update · 11:12am Dec 31st, 2012

Well, New Zealand just ticked over to 2013. The rest of you will have to wait a little longer. Either way; happy New Year. With the holiday season over, I can get back to work.
Now, onto updates:

Those Who Came Before: Chapter two is all but finished. Expect a release within the next two-three days.

The Piano Man: Next chapter is on its way. It had been delayed by the holiday season and writer's block, which I am finding myself more and more afflicted-with as of late.

Yeah, Stuff's Still Happening · 9:51am Dec 20th, 2012

Okay then; to readers of all my stories:

Those Who Came Before: Still making progress on chapter two. I was aiming to release it earlier this month, but I was stricken with Writers Block for quite a while. All things considered, it looks like I'll be keeping with my original estimate of 'around Christmas'. Sorry about that.
A full list of my Scientific Consultants will be released with the next chapter. It's not exactly a formal position, so much as it is a public reference source.
