"Where the hell have YOU been, Yuko!?" (or: Finding My Groove) · 4:02am Mar 5th, 2016

It's been a while, hasn't it?

Truth be told, it was more than simple burnout. I'd been at a bit of a rapid clip back then. Problem is, with my last fic, which I couldn't finish (but those of you who remember will see the one I've deleted), I'd fallen into the worst bit of a funk. Not only was it turning out to be a mess of random concepts the way Suck had, but I didn't really know where to take it. I'd gotten depressed, and lost my faith as a writer, since I had no idea what to do.

Endings Are Hard · 3:16am Oct 15th, 2012

You know, when I asked for ideas for the Cloptober Challenge, I was reasonably confident I'd be done with Suck by now. As it turns out, while I'm mostly done with the ending, I find myself wondering if I'm tying the plot points, if it's going too long, etc. I'm actually thinking of splitting the ending in two and using what I have now as a Chapter 9.

It's Cloptober! · 6:49am Sep 30th, 2012

First off, I'm knee-deep in Ch. 7 of Suck, and should have that done in a day or two. We're reaching the, er, climax, as it were. ;)

In the meantime, I need some help from you all. :) See, EQAD is holding a writing challenge. 50K words during the month of October, and it has to be a clopfic (for reasons that should be obvious).

Cyan Pony? · 11:15pm Sep 16th, 2012

A commenter on a story I was reading brought up something rather interesting. In most fan-fiction, Rainbow Dash is described as being cyan-colored. However, this is not the case. Now, the linked pic is not being, as I'd say, polite or constructive, but the point is made. Cyan is far too strong a color for G4 Rainbow Dash. Consider the various shades outlined here. More to the

Fixing Black Tags in BBCode. · 10:00pm Sep 16th, 2012

OK, here's a little something for editing. Now, as you probably know, FIMFiction.net uses BBCode for submitting stories. Yes, one could use Google Drive, but I could never get it to work, so I usually use LibreOffice Writer to make a new HTML document and type up my fic there, then save the HTML file and use the source code (open the HTML doc with a simple, Notepad-like text editor) and paste the source to the HTML to BBCode conversion tool at

Regarding EQD · 5:49am Sep 13th, 2012

Hey guys.

First off, I'm going to have a new chapter of "Suck" in the next day or two. I've just been having issues with my transition from Windows to Kubuntu, and Tekken Tag 2 just came out, so I've been playing like a fiend. Hm, wonder if anyone's made any Tekken Ponies...

Likes and Faves · 2:05am Sep 3rd, 2012

Ok, here's something interesting. With "Suck" up to Chapter 2, I got 45 faves for it. However, I have only 30 likes against 7 dislikes. Who faves without liking? And why? Wouldn't you like it if it were a favorite? Or am I missing something?

Character excluding is back! · 5:03pm Aug 15th, 2012

Looks like the ability to exclude characters in search is back. There's really only one thing to say about that.

Can't exclude characters? · 8:21am Aug 11th, 2012

Okay, as you all know, the FiM folks have been shaking things up recently. Now I don't much care about the whole search to google thing, as I have a tendency to fave anything I'd want to read again. However, the browse search filters seem to have an interesting omission - the inability to specifically exclude characters. This may seem minor, but I usually make it a point to exclude OCs when browsing, if only because the signal-to-noise ratio with OCs dramatically favors noise, even against

Weird issue: Format stripping? · 9:11am Jul 8th, 2012

Hey guys! This might seem an odd issue, but for some reason, when I try to publish a story, my formatting is lost in the translation. Am I missing something? I kinda feel noobish here, but I'm not entirely sure if there's another way to upload chapters or if I actually have to format manually here.
