The reason I write is because I want to read a story written for myself.  One day, I want to read one of my own stories and say to myself "That is the best story I have ever read."

  • T Of Swords and Hearts

    It seems like a horrible idea to assign a manipulative courtesan to help a guilt-ridden war mage. It seems even crazier to pair a insane dominatrix with a veteran plagued by nightmares. But remember, love always appears in the unlikeliest of places.  · vren55

So a few announcements.

Equestria's Changeling Queen and the Abyssal Empress Chapter 27: Hysteria and Serenity is being sent back to me from pre-readers and I'm looking it over for a Monday release. I've also slammed some words into the next few chapters and the Epilogue.

Given I'm ending Equestria's Changeling Queen and the Abyssal Empress soon, I think it's time for people to know that I'm hosting a Discord live-voice chat at some point for all the readers who have stuck with me for so long as opposed to the old AMA. I'm interested to know exactly what time (Eastern Standard Time) will people be available so I can coordinate. It's likely going to be on Monday or Thursday. However, I'd still like for people to tell me exactly what time they would be best available. Don't worry about missing it, I'll probably keep the Discord server up for a few days so you can text me, but I still want a set time.

Finally, a fic... well series of fics recommendation:

So imagine if Sunset never actually went into the Equestria Girls universe... what if she stayed. How would that have changed her, and what would have occurred if that happened?

Novel Idea explores this in his "The Wavelengths" universe whereupon Sunset stays in Equestria, though she's not immediately reformed...

His universe has a number of stories (see his profile), and Novel's intending the universe to start from when Sunset initially becomes... more reformed, until her encounter with Nightmare Moon, along the way making various friends. It plans to have fourteen stories, of which eight have been released (see below)

So far though, its been a very entertaining read. Not mind-boggling ah-ha innovative, but just... nice and entertaining to see this written out so well. My favorite probably being Grading on a Bell Curve. Unlike other Alternate Universe fics that declare and insta-replace the Mane Six... Novel's kept his readers in the dark, only giving hints. It's not even clear what the divergence point of this universe is and why it's so different until in The Cloudsdale Report.

Readers may find that Novel does very little intro for such a complex universe in his stories, or if he does, it's via dialogue or shown, but at the same time, I like that he's not attempting to justify or explain the divergence. To the characters in the story and story itself, it just exists, you don't need to ask questions why, it just does. Of course, I'd like more wordbuilding in certain stories, but given they're snapshots in the life of alternate Sunset Shimmer and others in her universe, I think he's done enough.

More importantly, within this Alternate Universe series, Novel demonstrates some very consistent technical writing, strong characterization and well-written dialogue. It's an interesting verse, explored in an interesting and clear manner, surprising at times, and if not surprising or innovative, then well-told.  

For those that enjoy Sunset Shimmer in Equestria, I highly recommend this series, as it's comparable to Magnetbolt's The Witch of Everfree (also fantastic) and going to be much longer.

Anyway, have fun, i need to agonize over my essay a little longer.

sincerely,

Bio... because they don't have that function anymore?

I am Canadian, which I think is just awesome.  I like and prefer to write original stories.  I'm a combination of an author taking advantage of what's popular at the time, while putting delightful spins to them.

I also happen to be, founder and admin for the group Authors Helping Authors, which was featured by Wanderer D in his monthly report, Pen Stroke (Past Sins) on his blog and as I write this now (March 2014), has since grown to a thousand members... wow.

Writing style?  Excessive world-building and ridiculously deep character development with fun dialogue some attempts at humour. I am too used to the British way of spelling things (as I was brought up in the Commonwealth) so expect to see colour left right and centre as well as other British spellings.

I also have a knack for finding Original Ideas that nobody has done before.  Examples are my semi-popular Canterlot: Her Creation and Her Architects, my VERY popular Princess Celestia: The Changeling Queen, and my collaboration story with Comet Burst, Of Swords and Hearts.

Bio Info:

Residence: Canada

Education: IB Diploma doing University

Writer Training: None specifically. Some experimentation. Lots and lots of reading.  IB Diploma English HL Course

Music: 90s Disney.  Musicals, lots and lots of musicals (Andrew Lloyd Webber = Awesome)

Fav Authors: Garth Nix, Brian Jacques, Tamora Pierce, RA Savaltore, JK Rowling,

Preferred Writing and Reading Genres:  Mid-long, Multi-Genre, Adventure, Fantasy, touch of Romance, 3rd Person.

Pony I am like the most: According to Bronyland test, either Twilight Sparkle or Applejack, with Rarity in runner up.

Fav Princess: Before it was Luna, but now I've switched my allegiance to Celestia

Fav Mane 6 pony: Twilight Sparkle

2nd Fav: Rarity

3rd Fav: The Rest

Orientation: Straight as a needle

Religion: Roman Catholic (which means I think being gay is a sin, but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the people and frankly I've sinned as well so who am I to criticize gay people?)

Relationship status: Single, I'm out the lookout.

Contact Details:  PM me please.  I do have a brony only email, but I prefer not to give it.

Wait so which pony do I like more, Twilight or Celestia?

Well I think I like to read stories on both characters, and although my initial reaction is to say "Twilight", its more because she was a 'pony' not 'princess' or 'alicorn.  Also, I prefer to write Celestia compared to Twilight... therefore its kind of a tie...
