To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of my favorite fimfic series of all time, have a video thing. :)  If you have a lot of time to burn (it is currently around 3.2 million words), I highly recommend the book series.

www.fimfiction.net/story/25966…

This animation is essentially a lot of reused bits for a video based on the fic to come out later.  This is also one of the first things I have published that went untouched after SFM in terms of post work. What you see is what SFM gave me. :)

Music: BOOM - Space Magic

Then you are farther than me lol.  I am still catching up after the recent restart.  It is a story I like to dedicate time to reading and haven't had as much of it. :(

When SS&E uploaded a small "sequel" to Austraeoh with I decided to give it a gander as, hey, Skirts is probably my favorite fanfic author. 

Afterward my curiousity was piqued so I gave the link to Austraeoh a click and..   well, that was about a week and a half ago.  I basically went through the whole saga non-frickin-stop until yesterday evening when I finished the last chapter of Utaan.

...and this morning I discover he's uploaded the first three chapters of Ofolrodi.

Fancy that... I think shortly after seeing this piece and more of Argo's Austraeoh related art, I dove in myself. May have started mid June. (confession, half-read it with help from TTS) Went Utaan the edge some weeks ago and now waiting on Ofolrodi to be complete before starting on that. Did a piece of art on Odrsjot myself.

That looks epic. I'm sure it will be super epic once done. And holy moly a fic longer than Project Horizons? And still going? I sense a Neverending Story from that...

I may. I will have to rerender and mess with some things as the eyes are doing that cull error thing from having a max zoom. Looks okay at this size, but is obvious when larger.

I really need to finish reading that epic story. I left off as Rainbow was about to find the 'last one' and making a huge sacrifice in the process of getting the previous one. (being very vague so I don't spoil anything)

I knew what this was from the instant I seen it + the title though. :D

Love this story and I definitely need to continue on it at some point.

The start is all ambient. It is her poetic. It does move on to actually talking with other ponies.

That's good, I suppose. But I am not the kinda guy who wants to dredge through stuff I find boring to eventually get to "interesting stuff" :P

It is well worth it in the later parts. Wars, uncovering ancient ruins, some solid backstory to a lot of things (relating to both Rainbow's tale and the world as a whole), and so much more.

Although I do like atmospheric/ambient types of stories to begin with... so some parts might be a bit of a struggle to read through if that's not your thing. I would still strongly recommend trying to read it through though. :)

Great vision, all the more because of the memories it carries with it. Knowing that you actually have an Austraeoh-based video in the works... man, almost gives me chills.

Also, rejoice for more Utaan chapters, starting today!
