Sir Mediocre


If nobody is telling the story you want to read, then you have to tell it yourself.

Update: Am Slow, Not Dead · 10:09pm March 3rd

I probably should have said this a few weeks ago, but I took an unintended break from rewriting things.

Translation: I burned myself out writing close to 50,000 words of mostly-original narrative over the span of two and a half months.:pinkiesick:

Chapter 5 Revision Complete - 6 Underway · 9:30am January 29th

What it says on the tin. If you were waiting for Chapter 5, go read it! :flutterrage: Please. :fluttershysad:

I’m a little over halfway done with rewriting 6. Unlike with chapters 2-4, I’ve been able to salvage most of 5 and 6. A lot of the work is reframing the same events from the original version, recontextualizing it, and some of it is shortening things, trimming the fat.

The last chapter that should need significant rewriting is 7. :rainbowdetermined2:

Go read my fic! :flutterrage:

Chapter 4 was a real piece of work, but absolutely worth it.

I finished and published a completely rewritten Chapter 3 of To Bellenast. If you recently read the original version, you have my condolences. It was awful.

I promise the new version is an order of magnitude better. It’s 1/3 the length, has no pointless fight scenes, no plot contrivances, and no unnecessary exposition (there is a teeny tiny bit; I wanted to keep it to the absolute minimum, but these bits are vital).

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, etc., etc., Oh And Here's Some Art · 10:25am Dec 25th, 2023

Contains significant quantities of Adorableness, Cuteness, Fluffiness, Happy Pony-ness, and also significant (though also directly foreshadowed) spoilers for To Bellenast.

Tada! · 1:23am Nov 27th, 2023

Chapter 2 of To Bellenast was a pile of garbage.:pinkiesick:

So I completely rewrote it from scratch. :coolphoto:

It’s much shorter now, it has better pacing, better characterization for everyone involved, less pointless exposition, less clumsy narration, and a couple pieces of foreshadowing for things later in the fic, which were present in the original draft, but which I failed to execute properly.:twilightsmile:

Say it three times, and they shall appear!

*ahem*

Chapter 5 was ~21.5K words. It is now ~15K words.
26 January 2024: AND NOW IT’S EVEN SHORTER, MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I’ve been looking more seriously at the first half of the story a lot lately, with a fresh perspective thanks to some much-needed criticism from friends and fellow writers.
