An off-again-on-again writer and father of a pony-fan-twelve-year-old-daughter. Incessant poking will make me write more/faster, by the way. (That's not sarcasm—I need reminders to write.)

I've got to say that today's episode, "Every Little Thing She Does," struck a familiar note at one point: Pinky in the kitchen under Starlight's version of the "Imperius" curse. It was amazingly close to a scene in Words Failed Her where Pinky was madly baking in a magic-induced trance—except Twilight, at least, had the presence of mind to shut off the gas to the oven before she left in my story.

There have been a number of moments in the show that have been eerily similar to scenes I have written, not that I think there's any causal relationship, I'm sure! In fact, I'll bet this happens to many fan fiction writers plying their hobby while the setting in question is still in production and putting out new content. Have any of you had a similar experience? Which of your stories and what episode of the show seemed to match?

I want to track my writing over time, so I'll post word counts here. This isn't a perfect measurement as I do spend a lot of time reading and re-reading what I have so far, making adjustments as I go. This work isn't reflected as a major change in word count, but hopefully greatly improves the story's quality and readability, regardless.

Tempus Futile: 8,475 words

Of Chaos Born: 2,059 words

Maquette: 8,319 words

Dreams from the Dark (WT): 1,286 words

Time's Mannequin: 4,254 words

The Star Swirl project: 10k+ words & notes

Appletales (WT): 3,034 words

[WT = Working Title]
