For the love of Celestia

Look at how many favorites I have. I am a two bit fave whore. Stop thanking me just because I faved your story. It doesn't even mean I liked it! Just that I may be interested in updates for now. There is no reason to thank me for a fave. It's complete lunacy!

Thank me for my "amazing" commenting ability or for writing "so many" inspiring stories. But for the love of Celestia please, no thanks for a fave. It just makes me feel bad, for not having anything else to give you that you feel worth mentioning.

You can find all of my stories in-progess, including a bunch of ones not published here, on my website. I have a "real" blog there, too.
You can email me directly fimferret2, at critter.cloudns.org if you want.
My PGP key is rsa2048/7427625CBD42FE2E (0204 264A A8AB 68E3 876D 67DA 7427 625C BD42 FE2E) or here.
I also am available on Tox, usually, at

Ah, no; sorry. And sorry it sounds like those problems still hold, if the comment's still relevant.

Good luck with at least making the best of it, if nothing else.

Sure! Got any alien planets to explore?

But no, if there's anything I can think of, I'll let you know. I'm not sure it's possible to break this kind of compulsion, at least not without being there to stop me. It's a feedback loop without anyone outside of it to break the cycle. Suppose you try to be mindful, and just get overwhelmed about how much you don't want to be here. What else do you do, when you have to sit around for long periods of time not knowing what to do? Fantasies and trivium to keep me from having to remember that I have toes. If I can turn some of that into writing, I do. The therapist says the solution is to try and keep a scheduler, and practice going to social events, so... I don't know what you could do about either of those things.

Oh man, I have fussed over that story so much it's ridiculous. Just trying to figure out how Ponyville would deal with Rosy is so complicated, because she's really messed up, but not beyond hope. And the thing with Bluebell the process of writing it is like "Oh but I... but no I can't do that yet, but that means... no it can't work that way, so how do I do this, and that at the same time?" and so on. I have been working on it though... slowly. One thing that helps is knowing that people like it, though!

I really hope that at some stage you'll pick up No Going Back again as I really was beginning to enjoy the alternate and more coherent perspective of the story.

Anything we can do to help?

Yeah I'm... writing a little, maybe a couple paragraphs a day. Haven't been doing so well mentally, nothing real serious, just... really lonely and weary of everything. Sorta struggling to stay coherent. Maybe all this exercising I've been doing is getting me down. I dunno.
