Removed Stories

Occasionally, I remove my stories. There is a reason for every single one, and none of them are related to how much people like the stories, it's more of an organizational reason. This account is supposed to be for stories that are rated E for everyone (subject to change, but more specifically, my newer styles of writing, not my 2014(ish) writing formats.

Anyway, I'm a firm believer that even if you write something terrible, it should stay up for everyone to read. If someone doesn't like your old stuff and decides that all of your writing is trash, then they're an idiot, done and done.

That being said, welcomed to the removed stories, listed below you will find links to such stories.

Sentimental

You took the time to sit down and write this. It doesn't matter what people think, or what state it is in, be proud you put your mind to the task and satisfied a deeper need within yourself.

Be proud. Be very, very proud. You did something most people say they can't do. But look at you and them now. You're posting. You're being apart of something.

You should love writing stories even if you may not know how to continue them. Don't think that you need to stop a story permanently because of "a lack of motivation." It means you need to take a break, perhaps a step back, and think. And one day, when you feel ready, rejoin the herd.

I will never release a lot of my own stories because I feel ashamed at them. But that is their current state. Remember, there will always be a tomorrow, even if you are sad, gloomy, darkened, depressed, or in any other state of deprived happiness.

Follow the Descendant. He knows. He is a great man of an honest heart and great mind. He is by far one of the most welcoming members of this community. He kept me in here with his stories. He taught me aspects of Fimfiction etiquette essential to survival in this sometimes hellish place of the internet, and his encouraging words, debates, and blogposts plagued me throughout my years of Fimfiction. Without him, there wouldn't be a Fimfiction for me.

Qui est munus exemplar. Thank you, the Descendant.

Nostalgia Corner

Have you ever thought to yourself: "Man, I've been at this for way too long"?

Welcome to the nostalgia corner, where I ruminate on my five god damn years of being on this website. I've watched countless amounts of people come and go, and it feels good to see that we're still getting 1000+ users daily despite the state of the community.

Here's to all you olden bronies/writers/readers, and especially to the other bronies like me who were founders of the community in 2010. To those of the previous generations? Keep that streak running for many years to come.

Blegh. Nostalgia hurts.

A planet of open oceans, arduous adventures, and pretty ponies.

AKA: a planet a little too obsessed with his oceans.

Hi, my name's Geoff, though I would appreciate it if you used Odd_Shot.

Originally, I just wanted to post one-shots. However, I've come to realize that sometimes we want stories to go further than what we're given. I'm sure a lot of us can attest to this, all with the many requests for sequels to one-shots I've seen over the years.

I'm an American who has been living in Japan on American bases for over a decade, and no, as many of my friends have previously asked, I am not here because of anime, I don't even watch any.

Welcome to my world of procrastination.


Find a priority list for my writing here. Be warned that it is now out of date because I don't feel like rescheduling everything in the document, so this as good as it gets in terms of your knowledge of the future.

*still explosion* · 11:41pm Last Tuesday

I'm tagging Bushkeeper because nobody saw the last post, and I don't want people worrying about me not writing. I'm trying, guys. I really do want to write, but at the end of the day, it's all about whether or not my skills can be put to use. My life runs primarily on a PC, and when it doesn't work despite all known solutions, I'm not going to take it easily. Computers are stubborn, but I'm more stubborn.

Sorry about the swears, but I can't be asked to calm down and think clearly. Running on 3-6 hours of sleep for a week and working nonstop on fixing an ultimately unsolvable problem is not good for the mind.


Yeah, okay, this is officially bullshit.

Just rearranging bookshelves and doing some rereads. Cheers, though.

To other authors who read this and see that I've added your story to my bookshelves, any story added within the past 36 hours of this post is just rearranging. Just throwing this out there to prevent old authors from making repeated comments on here.
