MyHobby


"For fun" is the best reason to do anything. "The best" is the best way to do everything.

The Man Himself!

Having been a fan since the first quarter of 2012, MyHobby finally decided that participating in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom wasn't nearly as weird as he had at first thought. Deciding to share his not-weirdness with the entire Internet, he registered on to FIMFiction.net in order to publish his works without all of that silly "working with an actual publishing company" stuff.

He also decided that his best legal defense was to stick his head between his knees and kiss his portly rump goodbye. He hopes to this day that Hasbro will not notice the nerd currently making himself a nuisance around the Internet, and wishes them many a long season to come.

He seems to be physically unable to work on any one story at a time. Eesh.

Pinkie Pie is his hero, just saying.

So is Rainbow Dash, but slightly less so.

    A War Among the Stars: Top Five Favorite Star Wars Novels

    Yo, remember that Star Wars Podcast I'm part of? We've got 11 episodes now!

    I wanted to bring special attention to episode 11 itself, where my friend and I discuss our top five favorite Star Wars Expanded Universe novels. Our main focus is on Star Wars before Disney bought it, that bygone time now known only as Legends.

    DayBreak Reading Part 2

    Just thought I'd drop a link to StraightToThePointStudio's reading of the first scene of chapter 2 of DayBreak, where Luna and Twilight speak with Care about the attack on Celestia.

    A little voice acting, a little ambient music, a little taste of DayBreak from a different perspective. Or medium. :twilightsheepish:

    Check it out here!

    Rhythm and Rhyme Postmortem; The Origin and the Point

    “MyHobby!” you say. “Where did the story come from, and why were you teasing it for literally four years before you actually started writing it?”

    Rhythm and Rhyme was originally a much different story. It always centered around Button Mash and Sweetie Belle, maybe more so than the final product, but it has its roots going back many a year. I recall it being the first near-future Ponyville story I ever devised, and yet, it came out as one of the last.

    I'm in a Star Wars Podcast!

    Honored guests and applicable aliases, it's time for a slight paradigm shift from what we usually see around these parts. For the past few months, my buddy and I have been working on a fun project. Y'see, he's got to create a podcast for his college project, and he wanted to base it on something that was fun to talk about. The two of us routinely get into the nitty gritty about what we like and dislike about Star Wars, so it seemed a good fit for me to "guest" star.

So no stories about Griffons using the Kaboom Kapowsky powder to blast boulders? Unless it do,and is simply not enough to happen in a separate story.

ohhh...well, then, i'll have to read more.

Of course! It's a continuation of their story, not an overwriting of it. They're all lifelong friends who meet with each other regularly, even though Rarity's moved to Canterlot and Rainbow Dash moved back to Cloudsdale. They're not gonna let a little thing like distance destroy the friendship that saved the world.:pinkiesmile:

Will the mane six still be friends?

what would be a good place to start in the Hearts Continuity? and what is it about exactly?

The Heart's Promise continuity is about the world of Equestria as it may appear in the near-future, from seven to, say, fifteen years in the future. It's a grabbag of various styles and genres, but they're all part of the same ongoing storyline. My plan from the onset was to have a series of stories that were stand-alone. You can really read them in any order, barring the ones labeled as sequels.

For starting it, it depends on what you want to read. For example:

Lord Mayor Applejack is a comedic drama about Applejack travelling with Celestia to a meeting of world leaders. A human has found its way to Equestria, and the world leaders need to figure out what to do with it, how to communicate with it, and how not to kill each other in the process. You see, the world leaders do not really like each other. Conflict erupts as Applejack just tries to make sense of everything.

Scootaloo Will Fly! is a slice-of-life story about Scootaloo and Ponyville. It's about exploring her character, her friends, and her family. We see a lot of world-building for Ponyville itself in this story, as well as getting a look at what the Cutie Mark Crusaders may be like as teenagers.

DayBreak is a political action thriller with violent battles, heartbreaking interpersonal drama, political intrigue, and loads of lore. Princess Celestia is nearly assassinated by a pony thought long dead, and it is up to Twilight Sparkle to assemble Daring Do, Time Turner and others to track the villain down and defeat her. While Celestia is out of commission, Luna is left alone to lead Equestria in these hard times. As the story goes, our heroes find that the assassin has far more sinister intentions than mere regicide.

Each of these stories represents a large part of The Heart's Promise continuity: The comedy, the drama, and the action. Each one is stand-alone, and each one is an excellent starting point for getting a peek into the series.

But seriously, most of these stories work as a starting point. :twilightsmile:
