Interests
Before I begin, I just wanted to thank all of you who wished me a happy birthday. <3 It really means a lot to me that some of you would remember and take a couple of seconds out of your day to make that small wall post. No, really. I am not being sarcastic.

However, this is a good news/bad news announcement and I hope you will all bear with me.

As some of you might have noticed, updates on this page tend to be a lot slower than they used to be. This is because, quite honestly, deviant art is not really geared to long pieces of fiction. Much more over ten thousand words and I have to break up chapters here into two while on FIMFiction I can post as large a chapter as I damned well please. However, that is not the only thing. Deviant art also requires at least a solid hour of adding the bold, italic, underline and other tags like that as well as manual indents. FIMFiction downloads from Google Docs (sorry, now DRIVE >.>) where I do all of my editing.

So what do this mean? It means Deviant art is no longer my primary focus when doing pony fanfiction anymore. Does this mean I will stop posting the stories here? Nope! Some of you only use deviant art, and I would be remiss to forget any of you, who helped me get to where I am today.

Now, for the good news. To put it short and sweetly, I am trying to learn how to draw Pony for myself. Bear in mind that I tend to be a perfectionist and I have very little drawing ability as is, so you may not see anything of it for months if I can find the time to do it. However, you guys will be the only ones to see my epic failures and failure is more entertaining than success, am I right?

Oh, and if any of you are interested on my options for the new episodes as they come out, why not check out my FIMFiction blog and drop a comment or two if you have an account? If not, that's your opinion, I guess. *Shrug*

Until next time, later!
