Start thinking of ideas... · 12:50am November 18th

Okay, so my plan to write a multi-chapter drama fic has exploded for a lot of reasons (the going is way too slow and it's not fun to write), which is painful because I've had it in my brain for years. Which leaves my writing time much freer than I thought it would be, and man, the "Undead" series was way fun to write. I'm not doing a conventional third installment (tf would I do, make Vignette Valencia a vampire?), but I will be making an anthology of reader-suggested chapters/"episodes" both

Blues, blues, blues, reds, greens · 9:13pm October 14th

I always get a bit of blues after finishing a long story, and now is no exception. I also watched the finales today, which added substantially to the feeling.

I remember crying after reading Simply Rarity on the way to my first big-boy job. MLP has been a part of my entire adult life.

Selling out to the fans · 5:27pm September 21st

Not really, but the latest chapter of Sunset Shimmer Hunts the Undead does have a reader poll that will conclude in a week to determine a plot point. If you're tracking the story but let chapters build before reading, now may be a good chance to catch up so you might influence what happens next.

Going to Trotcon next year! · 1:10am August 31st

Gonna be my first brony convention... little nervous, but I hope to run some light tabletop pone-RPGs while I'm there. My hotel arrangements are in flux. I ended up making a reservation then cancelling because my first hotel looked horrifying once I dug a little deeper. Strong lesson about not shooting from the hip, there, but it'll get sorted.

At any rate, the badge name is of course Rune Soldier Dan, and will be happy to see anyone else from fimfic while I'm there.:twilightsmile:

"Sunset Shimmer Hunts the Undead" update plans · 8:41pm July 6th

1. Next weekend (yeah, I'm missing my self-imposed biweekly update schedule. Boo, hiss.) there will be three small chapters posted. It's a weird thing to do, but there are cliffhangers and pretty severe mood swings that all feel like they would trip over each other if everything was put in one chapter. One's done but I don't really feel like posting it now, because it's Equestria-based silliness and I'm kinda at the point where I'm ready to make the mood a bit more cereal.

Do you want to read a cute fic about Autumn Blaze and Diamond Tiara trying to save their opera from a menacing ghost? · 9:52pm April 25th

Because there's a story for it. I just read it today and loved it, and if heartwarming slice-of-life with fun twists is your jam, I reckon you will too. Deserves way more than 14 upvotes, so consider this a signal boost.

EDaring Do: The Opera
Diamond Tiara is excited to have a starring role in Autumn Blaze's new opera. She knows the Opera House isn't haunted, but if it were, she'd be ready to give any Opera Spirit a stern talking-to.

Faster Updates or Longer Chapters? · 5:50pm March 31st

Quick question for my Dysfunctional Families Hunt the Undead readers: I can potentially divide upcoming longer chapters into normal-sized ones, allowing me to get them out faster while still ending each chapter at a reasonable stopping point (if potentially with a cliffhanger). Or I can publish all the writing together to make for longer chapters (that cover their entire event) with slower updates. Which would you rather see? I kind of lean towards shorter chapters so I can keep up the
