Blog Number 28: Hyperactive Hyperlinks Edition

Four months down, eight to go…

:ajbemused: Firstly, a minor correction: two blog posts ago, I claimed that Beautiful Lives* was the first fic of mine ever to be featured. Petalback proves me wrong, slipping under the radar much earlier than I had expected.

* Which, by the way, shares its title with a recent independent movie. For what it's worth on a public fanfiction site where I'm shamelessly appropriating corporate creations for personal non-profit amusement**, I swear this is sheer coincidence.

** Well, OK, not entirely shamelessly. This is why I never put disclaimers in my fics; it should be obvious to the meanest intelligence they won't do jack if the worst comes to the legal worst. Besides, they look so tacky. Who else but me thinks they look so tacky?

Blog Number 27: A Spring In My Step Edition

Quarterly Report 2017. Three months down, nine to go...

Season Seven is on the horizon, as is a movie that isn't about anthropomorphs unless you count the cat. I dare say that, at the very least, there will be some episodes in Season Seven which I will treasure, and who knows? Maybe the movie will be a spectacular success, though I personally suspect it'll be slightly above average at best, with possibly one or two gem moments.

As you can guess, overall I don't find myself particularly enthused about either. What little has been leaked makes me think "meh" or "oh dear, it's becoming the Starlight Glimmer show".* Given the autonomy of the fandom and the strength of the earlier works**, they both seem like courtesy details at this point.

Feelin' good, fellow user, and yourself? That Time Action Gory Challenge oversight was more an acute case of "Eh, I'll Do It Later" Syndrome than anything else, a common if unhelpful affliction. It's happily fixed as of now.

So how have you been doing? I was looking at the "Time Action Glory Challenge!" forum and saw that "The Stats of the Tags" had not been updated for June. Is this because of personal calamity, or more from forgetfulness?

No worries. I'd been wondering about White Lightning's tag ever since it appeared on the list, and when I discovered she hadn't really garnered much fandom interest before now, I thought I'd fill a vacant niche and try my hand at a little characterization exercise. After all, the fandom's done more with less before now.

By the way, I'm part of a group dedicated to giving underused character tags some more attention: Time Action Glory Challenge. Whatever ideas you have for White Lightning or for anyone else, they could be realized during one of our prompt challenges, or they can be written any time at your leisure. It might be right up your alley, if you'd like to join in.

I just saw your latest story, White Lightning and the Elite Pony, pop up somewhere in my feed.

Before I get around to reading it, I just want to say:

Someone finally posted a story using the White Lightning character tag! :yay:

Unfortunately, I couldn't really come up with any story ideas for her myself yet, but I've kinda been looking forward to seeing her tag used for a while now... :twilightsheepish:

New Benchmark: 100 Followers as of Friday 10th February 2017, yay! :yay:

Now get me another hundred. :ajsmug:

No worries. I found it through the Royal Canterlot Library. For a short fic, it packs some impressive psychological insight, social commentary, and atmosphere-building into a simple thousand words or so. Good stuff. :ajsmug:

Well, thank you for the following. I'm glad you liked A Good Filly:twilightsmile:

2368567 Ah, thank you so much. And happy holidays! :twilightsheepish:

2368450

You're welcome. The Legend of the Gift Horses contained some fascinating ideas, and was an entertaining read. Thank you for writing it. :twilightsmile:

Ah, thank you for the favorite! ;3
