2017

Many years ago, back in the dawn times of 2014, I wrote The Stars Ascendant. It was a pretty popular story, and DRWolf did a reading of it.

Flash forward to 2017, and I run into DRWolf at Everfree Northwest. He remembers that he did a reading of one of my stories, but can't remember which one. I go through to my stories, and go back and find The Stars Ascendant.

Then he's like, "So, did you see the one with custom artwork?"

"Uh, no. Custom artwork?"

So he has me go to YouTube and uh...

Wow.

So, uh, it isn't just "custom artwork".

NinjaRABBiTx2 did an entire series of illustrations to go along with the story.

It had a post on Equestria Daily and 75,000 views on YouTube.

And I totally didn't realize it even existed. :fluttercry:

Thank you so much, Doctor Wolf and NinjaRabbitx2! I really feel tremendously special today as a result of this. I don't really know how to thank you properly. Just... thank you. :heart:

>>2344752:derpyderp1: I think what she's trying to say is...

Why MWAP though!!

MWAP can be translated as:

Wubba lubba dub dub?

Which translated:

I am in great pain, please help me?

Which in why though question form:

Why would you help me even though I'm in great pain?

Which in MLP form: Why are you helping me as a friend even when times go rough?

Which translated from girl to boy talk: Why are you keep sticking with me? Are you going to help fill my great pain in my heart?

:raritystarry:I SEE A SHIPPING GOING ON HERE!!!

(Warning: Translations may not be 100% accurate)

#362 · 15w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2394884

Because it skips around and doesn't give the reader the time they need to grow into the relationship.

#361 · 15w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2394882

Because it is too short, which is why you wrote a 120k word rewrite of it?

#360 · 15w, 2d ago · · ·

Allow me to make a prediction: you are going to find The Gentle Nights horrendously lacking. I know I did.

I have a metacritic account, but there are other Titanium Dragons out there.

All changelings, of course.

>>2317162 Ah ok, I tried to see if it was there but couldn't find it so cool. I haven't read Lord of Dragons but good luck nonetheless!

#351 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2317161

Yeah.

I think the following stories have all made it there:

The Legend of Falling Rocks, Buffalo Brave

Dawn

Dusk

Through Glass

Ruin Value

Dying to Get There

Forever and Again and Again

Why Don't You Tell Them?

Recurring Nightmare

Hearth's Warming Turkey

The Fated Hour

My Fluttering Heart

I ended up submitting Lord of the Dragons.

#350 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2317108 Has 'Dying to Get There' gotten on there yet? That's a really good story and quite highly rated too.

#349 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2317107

Thanks! I'm always happy when my stories make Equestria Daily.

Not sure what story I'm going to submit to them next.

#348 · 32w, 3d ago · · ·

Congrats on getting your story 'My Fluttering Heart' featured on EQD! Definitely well deserved :pinkiesmile:

#347 · 37w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2290279 Got it. Why do you like the idea of her still being evil? Also, I'm not sure if I'd call it evil, more like morally grey.

#346 · 37w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2290246

Sure. But not evil in the same sense as, say, Queen Chrysalis or Sombra or what have you.

There's always the possibility to do better.

#345 · 37w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2290245 So she's still evil?

#344 · 37w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2290240

Being extremely self-serving is one of the two primary types of evil in my mind. This is one of the reasons why evil is not one big happy family.
