Old one auto-saged, so here we go again!
This is the official discussion of "The Sun is Tired," a fanfic I wrote.
It's sort of a deconstruction of trollestia, and sort of my idea of what is going on in the show. Or, at least, the premise is.
I might post parts early, I might not. This is the easiest way to contact me, so go ahead and post. Also, fanart and other things like that make me a very happy author, and get you every single link early. But only do it if you actually like the story.

I highly doubt it. He already said updates may be slow and now he's rewriting the last couple chapters so just be patient.

So, it's not dead. It will return. But I'm having a horrible case of writer's block, combined with a lack of motivation... I dunno. There will probably be updates, but I'm unsure...

Looking forward to whenever the next chapter comes. Just spend a few minutes each day to churn out at least 200 words and consider it an accomplishment (because hey, 200 more words than when you started out!), and eventually you'll find a resolution to your Writers Block.
>> No. 69348
Well, since this thread will be dead soon, I guess I should say this. Mask, this was second fic I ever read, the first one being another by you, and it probably kept me on Ponychan long enough to make some ties with people on other boards as well as keep me watching the show.

So, cheers, I guess? Is that something to be glad about? I dunno.

Silly fandom, three months is nothing.

Children of an Elder God (Lovecraft/Eva fic) took seven years to finish more or less. 24 chapters. 7 years.

Three months is quite literally, nothing.
Change of Heart (Mario fanfic) is up to chapter 50, having started in March of 2006, the latest chapter having been put out February of 2011.

Hell, 8-bit theater ran almost 10 years.
>> No. 72276
Oh man I can't wait, personally I'd like to see how the general population treats Twilight and the rest of the mane cast now that the Celestia cult has officially deemed them almost as important as the princess. Also after the owl scene I can imagine the night guard getting some shit from the others.
>> No. 72290
Uh- I actually retcon'd the cult due to the fact that I had no idea where I was going with it. On the plus side, the new direction is planned out all the way until the end, which will be bittersweet... So hopefully that works.
>> No. 72315
Really? Oh well that would still be a valid point. After all princess Celestia makes no secret of her friendship with the elements of harmony so it wouldn't be too far-fetched that everypony would start being extra special careful how they treat them too.
>> No. 72355

I suppose this is as good a place as any to ask. I was following chapter updates back when you were still updating semi-regularly, and I'll probably pick up the new chapter when it comes out. How much have you retconned, and how far back am I going to have to re-read to pick up the changes?
>> No. 72374
Basically, everything after the nightmare scene is completely different. So it's not really re-reading, as almost nothing happens the same. But yeah, 1/2 of chapter 8, as well as chapters 9 and 10, are different.

I liked the story enough in the beginning to read most of it. I do write a bit myself but I haven't reviewed other people's work before in a long time. So unless you mind that I would like to give a shot.

Honestly, I think "When Mega Man Gets a new, non-collection, non-remake game" would be closer to the impression of never. You know, since Keiji Inafune left and all, it's pretty much damned to the pits of gaming hell, to be only a memory preserved by Zero in the Capcom Vs _______ series of fighters from now until eternity.

Good on you, Mask. Does this mean you'll be resuming your review thread, or are you taking a breather?
>> No. 88580
Would you mind another author writing on their own?.
>> No. 88584
Umm... Surly does not equal Surely

Bummer ending. Not bad, not unexpected either. I guess you got tired too, didn't you? Well, best of luck with everything you do.

But I didn't open the youtube links either, so...
>> No. 88605
I guess you can say...

The Author is Tired.


But in all seriousness, I simultaneously understand and empathize with the fatigue that comes from writing a long story. I respect your decision to at least END the story instead of letting it rot, and I wish you the best on all of your future endeavors.
>> No. 88615
>Wants to end story
>Ends with sequel hook
>> No. 88628
Well damn. Not fond of how it ends but it actually fits decently with where the story was headed so I can go with it.

I'm glad you gave it an actual ending before moving on, it's horrible when stories just get abandoned without any closure or explanation from the author.
>> No. 88635
Thank you for finishing it. TSIT was among the first fanfics I read and the one I liked most. I admit that I forgot its existence already. Then I saw the update on EqD... I chcecked my fanfic folder, "TheSunisTiredPart8.5 CelestiasNightmareHyperMode.pdf" is dated July 2 2011.

Oh no... Dashie & Flutters got beaten up :-(
>> No. 88640
Not at all. You could probably do it better then I could.

I might resume the review thread in a week or so. I dunno. It depends on my mood.
>> No. 88644
I am most likely going to not write a sequel.

It struck me as odd that Mask wasn't using his trip, and I was a little worried that it was fake, but the ending given fit so well, that I really didn't give it a second thought after reading it.
Maybe I'm insane that way.

If you look for my deviant art, there will be a non-pony-related short story up on there sometime today.

So check that out.
