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".

Those Who Came Before - News · 1:50am Dec 10th, 2012

Okay then, trusty readers, here's what's happening:

Right now, I'm doing a second round of revisions to fix dialogue attribution and make the story a little more show than tell (Which is what the EqD pre-readers say need to be fixed). After that I'll get back to work on the next chapter.

Piano Man Update · 7:19am Dec 4th, 2012

I'm still working on the next chapter of The Piano Man. Believe it or not, this delay is unrelated to Those Who Came Before. It's actually a case of simple writer's block - which has mostly been resolved. Anyway, I suppose I should leave you with a little 'teaser (which is kinda unnecessary in a story as slow paced as this one), so here's something:

The word of the day is 'religion'.

Those Who Came Before · 11:37am Nov 28th, 2012

Title says it all. My new human story, pretty much.

Okay, Piano Man readers: You may wonder why you've been tagged for this blog. I know it may be a shameless plug... but, well: I did write up Those Who Came Before with you guys in mind. I'm not going to ask you to read it, but I just thought I should say that.
Seriously. It doesn't matter. Feel free to ignore this. I just wanted to tell you all.

I feel really bad plugging my story like this.

Hooray! A New Story/Piano Man News · 5:17am Nov 28th, 2012

Okay then, with my new story released, I can finally turn its future over into the hands of the masses. In other news: that also means I can get back to work on The Piano Man.

Sit tight, Keys fans. A new chapter is now in the works.

Oh, I'm so anxious and excited!

Those Who Came Before - Cover Image · 2:55am Nov 26th, 2012

Okay then, as it happens my current story artist is no longer in a position to create the cover art for Those Who Came Before. It's normally at this point that I turn to my watchers and grovel for a little while without telling them why I'm actually doing so.

Anyway, I'm in a real bind here. I can't submit my story without a suitable cover image as I want it to present a quality face for new readers, and my searches for images are yielding little results.

Still On its Way · 7:58am Nov 19th, 2012

I know it's been 12 days, but I've been doing... this thing. I'll tell you more about it when it's 'done.'

Here's a little teaser: The chapter may or may not involve an appearance by a certain Industrialist pony. Sit tight, y'all.

Hey! It's Gonna Be Late! · 4:52am Nov 14th, 2012

Title says it all: The next Piano Man chapter's already late, and it'll take a few more days. Fortunately, things are going to stop being so hectic pretty soon.
...
In the meantime, I think I can give y'all a little hint of that other story I've been working on. The title is 'Those Who Came Before'. Unrelated to Assassin's Creed.

You may begin speculating. I'd love to hear what impression that title gives.

On Its Way · 8:31am Nov 5th, 2012

Next chapter's coming, guys. Just thought I should let you know.

Also, I'm considering writing a proper romance story. Not really sure though. Opinions?
