A Final (Proper) Final Farewell · 2:17am May 28th, 2013

Well, it's finally arrived at the time I've been dreading for more than a few months now. I honestly thought, when I first made my account on fimfic, that I'd have this for a good few years and that it'd be a nice place for relaxing, meeting people and discussing stories, due to my growing fondness of creative writing and that sorta thing. Now, if you'll excuse me for a few minutes, I'm gonna go off on a nostalgia-fuelled trip down memory lane for no reason other than to lengthen this blog post

To the Capitalist Pit of Sin (America) · 2:48am Mar 22nd, 2013

Goin' on holiday for two weeks, not gonna be able to write very much unfortunately. Visitin' Florida, fuck yeah! Still, I managed to get two new chapters of TLB posted this week, and six chapters on another story. Also, Skype:

[02:43:00] Siewwa: Heh. Your money is weiiiiiiird...
[02:43:06] Siewwa: All same-shaped, and green...
[02:43:18] twow443: Okay, that's really funny.

Sierra Reads a Write · 3:54am Mar 19th, 2013

Ok, put simply, I've realised exactly how many good stories I've read in this fandom. Not enough! To be honest, I wanna read some of the more widely-known stories that everyone refers back to at some point or another. End of Ponies, Fallout: Equestria (and derivatives thereof), not Past Sins, uh... yeah, that's the extent of my literary knowledge within the fandom.

Apologies · 7:43pm Mar 13th, 2013

Well, I just wanna get started by apologising for my complete absense from FiMFic for the past few weeks. It was unavoidable, really; lots of work, moving house, some sickness... but still, I'm ready to get writing again. *glances at favourites list* Oh, and reading... yup. Got a few chapters already written for The Lost Battalion, a few almost finished for Brushy, an almost-finished SoL story that I hope to have up by the end of next week, before I go on holiday.

A Server!? Also, Updates · 12:32am Jan 21st, 2013

So, a quick rundown on stories:

A-Level exams. So, story-writing is nigh-on impossibru. Well, I could, but I wouldn't have enough time to write anything decent. Therefore, I'm going to leave writing until I'm in a better position to do so.

A Guide to bbcode Typography · 12:00am Jan 9th, 2013

Hmm, time to actually do something useful with my blog. Well, I'm going to give some examples of both 'buttoned' and hidden bbcode commands, and how they can be used to make a kick-ass chapter header for a story. I think typography makes stories look that little bit more professional, which can mean the difference between an upvote and a downvote. Perhaps that's me being full of myself. Oh well, if I'm going to make myself look like a self-righteous jackass, I'd better do it with pretty

Updates · 3:11am Dec 24th, 2012

Alrighty, where to begin? I'll be brief and straight to the point, I guess. I've got a few projects going at the moment, mostly personal. I'm writing Brushy and TLB in equal amounts, and enjoying both. I'm also helping twow443 with his story, Repairing Harmony. I'm enjoying it, he's enjoying it, enjoyment all around! As you'll see in a minute, I'm also

Good Job Knighty! #02 · 4:22pm Dec 10th, 2012

Well, it'd appear the long-awaited site updates have done as much bad to the site as good. Call me miserable, old-fashioned or cynical, but the new front page is surprisingly reminiscent of ff.net's. Story cover images are now smaller than America's 'healthy eating initiative' budget, the front page is a massive block of grey and the featured box is now massively unfair to new writers. With the removal of the 'Popular Stories' sidebar, you're fucked unless you get featured within

The TWE · 11:26pm Dec 1st, 2012

Well, it would appear we got K-bombed. Oh well. I thought we were doing a fairly decent job, although there were certainly some flaws to our work. Still, it frustrates me to no extent that there are still some group out there that thrive off of making other people feel uncomfortable. Even after all the good we did, we're still called bullies, thugs and undesirables in general. Still, sometimes people need the harsh, direct criticism. I know we did some bad, and some members got overzealous, but
