The World on Fire · 3:50pm

I waste so much time on writing essays and background material and worldbuilding shit for the Borderworld instead of actually writing chapters. So much, in fact, that some of my Skype friends have begun referring to me as Danny Jidya, because I uncover and explain the DEEPEST LORE. I blame Posh for that name. Fuck you, Posh. Fuck you and your Solid Snake adventures. When are you going to give the public Cupsnakes like we all want?

Anyway, this all to say, I wrote a worldbuilding essay about the setting of Fire Burning, explaining its religious customs, all the kingdoms and other nations, and the broad strokes history. A lot of it is just background material that won't be extremely relevant to the main story, but I think it adds some flavour to the world.

I plan to make a more spoiler-filled version in sixty years time when the story is actually complete, but this one I've just uploaded is a minimal spoiler version. If you've read up to date on the story, then this won't contain any earth-shattering revelations. Even if you haven't, I think it's generally okay. If you're really finicky about spoilers, or if you prefer to interpret the story of Fire Burning for yourself using only the actual fic rather than any lore documents, then that's fine. But it's there if you want it, and I don't consider it as spoiling anything really important, so check it out if you're interested.

Thanks for your time. New chapter coming soon.

In-progress right now, bitch. Get on Skype and help me with it.

#265 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

When are you going to write that cockvore inflation story about Glimglam that you keep promising me?

#264 · 22w, 1d ago · · ·


Fandoms and fansites wax and wane, but generally, you'll always find someone still around, still doing something. I don't know if that'll always be me; it seems every few years I find something new to obsessively spend my time on, so maybe I will move on one of these days. But one thing that's different about FimFiction from all my previous haunts is that even when it's relatively quiet, it's still plenty busy enough to keep me occupied.

#263 · 22w, 2d ago · · ·


It's really a shame how stale the environment here has become, innovation and devoted activity is a scarce commodity now it seems. Luckily not entirely forgone though.

Although I don't have any points for pretty much redacting my entire footprint here, both willingly and not, I'd like to give writers like you the most for sticking with us here and still publishing, to your readers' immense enjoyment.

As for the blogs I'm really sorry how talent can be treated here, there's a lot of reasons why this could be but I'm sure it's nothing that stems from any perceived slight on your end. As an example, I don't even bother with notifications, haven't for my years  here.

Thank you. I appreciate the sentiment.
