You gotta kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight.


Hey, I'm Closer-To-The-Sun (I'm also on deviantArt with the same name, follow me there), but you can call me Joseph. I enjoy writing fan-fics and I hope you guys can enjoy it too.

New fic and what's on the horizon · 6:15pm August 9th

I just posted my newest oneshot fic, 'The Chain'. I had been sitting on this idea since last year and I had finished it much earlier in the year, but I commissioned a friend for the fanfic poster. They had some real life stuff happen so I just figured I would wait. As you can see from the artwork, it was easily worth the wait.

Hope y'all enjoy the shenanigans that I keep putting Gallus and Smolder in. 'The Chain' was a fun fic to write and I'm stoked to finally publish it.

Another Dr who fan I see

Would love to see a spike x smolder story


Removed due to ‘chat logs or "script format" is not an acceptable story format om FIMFiction’. I will be adjusting the story and reuploading it.

Hey! What happened to the quarantine story? :(

What happened to life in quarantine?

Hi, I just happened to wonder around and spotted your bio. Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and that I love your bio pic(and maybe be friends):heart:.

Kinda shocks me that I've been featured on the front page for two full days now, so there's that.

Well, you seem to be having a minor renaissance of sorts!

I don't know if I was really missed or anything, but I do enjoy writing for these colorful animals

Welcome back to writing. The site has missed you, broski.
~ Yr. Pal, B

Wow, well, thanks for reading something that wasn’t sure anyone would care about. Makes me happy to know I at least made some difference.

Strange to say this, but thanks for writing back in the day. Some of your works were what got me into writing in the first place.

So thanks for that.

I still watch for notifications.
