About Divergent DaysSo, I will be posting chapter 3 of DD on fimfic soon, which is where the fic itself begins to "change" from the original version. I know many of you enjoyed what I had already done with it, but after two years of thinking, plotting, and more MLP episosdes, I've had more ideas and better ways to execute scenes. Plus, I like to think my writing has improved.
That being said, I will be removing DD from dA every time I upload the next chapter on fimfic here. There is the link to it, so if you wanna keep track of it's progress then go there. And since it has been two years, I would recommend re-reading it as I post it there, for it will be going through changes.
Good news!I woke up this morning, which means I survived my birthday!
I just wanted to say thank you all who wished me a happy birthday. I've been watching M*A*S*H again, so for my birthday me and my friends played poker and drank... well, I drank... but in true M*A*S*H fashion! So, hopefully I'll be gettin' some work done with fics over on fimfic.
Divergent Days!A young mare approached me the other day, asking "ROB, just what has happened to your magnificent fan fiction called Divergent Days?" I explained to her how I've been busy with planning the Fillidelphia ruins salvaging. And she nodded, smiling the entire time, gaining my trust. Of course, she only did this in an attempt to get near me so she could attack me with a crude dagger she had carved out of stolen scrap metal. Needless to say, her attempt failed her. But did I have her killed? No, I did not. I sent her to the pit, where she could-
wait... oh yeah, derp... Been listening to my Fallout Equestria audiobooks again... anyway.
Welp, it's finally begun! The first chapter of Divergent Days is finally up on fimfiction.net! http://www.fimfiction.net/story/168110/divergent-days
I know many of you have been asking, pestering, wondering, begging, crying and curling into a ball at night in anticipation for when I'd ever get to finishing the fic. Well, I'm still quite a bit far from ac
CMCon!"Hey ROB, where the hell have you been?"
Well faithful watcher, I've been busy. Writing? Pfft, hell no. I've not done jack shit in like a year. I'm still amazed people are even watching me. Anyway, so in case you may think that I just don't write, or don't want to, that's not it at all actually. I'm actually writing still! Am I posting anything? No, 'cause 99% of it isn't really "post-worthy" at this time. Mostly it's all ideas, concepts, and horribly rough drafts. For quite some time, I've just been so tired after working at both my job, with my father, and going to school, I don't really do much other than play some video games on occasion with my friends.
I'm trying to get one of these fics post worthy. But well, only time will tell.
Now, to what this is actually about.
I'M GOING TO CMCon AT THE END OF MAY! In... Colombus, Ohio? I think so... anyway, yea I'm going. If you'd like to talk to me or say hello, keep an eye out for a big guy with a red/black pladd hat with two Maci
Thank you all!So, just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, fan art, and lightbulb pics you sent me! It means a lot to know that even though I'm a wash up people still care. As a reward, I'm hoping to get a little one shot I've worked on out and posted. I can't promise it will be all that great, but well it's been too long since I've done anything, and I really, really hate it. When life gets in the way though, what can you really do? I guess not much...
Also, this would have been out sooner, but with my birthday and St. Patty's day on a single weekend... well, lets just say, my room has a lot of empty Sunkist and Whiskey bottles...
What I wouldn't give for a lightbulbFrustration.
All these emotions, and more, are what I am feeling right now. It all began several hours ago, when my last lightbulb burnt out. So, what does a sensible man do? Not what I do, anyway. I scrounged all my spare lamps, but alas, they too were bulbless! I was, officially, out of lightbulbs. So that meant then I had to do what any sensible man would, and that's go to the store and buy some lightbulbs.
Now, I'm not sure how you all are, but personally I'm not a huge fan of the florecent, swirly bulbs that are everywhere. They have their uses, yes, but for general use I like a normal incandescent light bulb. They come on instantly, they're just the right brightness, and better yet for outdoor use they actually make heat (great for when it's snowing and the wind is blowing, helps keep the snow from building on the bulb). BUT TO MY SURPRISE, WHEN I WENT DOWN THE LIGHTBULB AISLE IN THE HARDWARE STORE, THERE WERE NO INCANDESCENT BULBS TO BE SEEN. Only
LIVESTREAM R GO! DONE!Thanks to everyone who stopped by, even if you were just lurkin' and enjoying the records.
MLP Gameloft gameSoooooo... it just recently got put out on the android market for smart phones. It's a lot of fun, actually. Though I gotta admit, I laughed way harder than I should have when I performed a sonic rainboom with Macintosh in that flying game. So yea, would you kindly add me to your gameloft friend list? Because to get more of those stupid hearts I gotta add people 'n such. Can you guess my name? If not... that's just sad.
Preparing for moving day!That is, from deviant Art to Fimfiction.net for all of my fictions!
No offense to dA, but fimfiction's writing format is much easier to use and work with. I'll never fully abandon my roots here. I'll still use dA for my updates in journals, or when I'm streaming. I'll still also check on messages, comments, and the such.
http://www.fimfiction.net/user/ROBCakeran53 There is my fimficion account, so if you wish to continue following me for my stories (because what else do I do here?) then I highly recommend keeping better track there.
With this also being stated, I will be slowly moving "Divergent Days" to fimfic while I am doing some last minute edits and such, so I can continue it's story. For the five of you who read "Luna's Gift", a one off one shot I did a year ago, that too will be making it's move there, again after some revision and a possible continuation of the story since it was originally intended to be longer.
Welp, I think that's about it. Expect to see the next update to "

First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed.

Prompts [additional abnormal prompts]•••
Origin Prompts: Create your Esk's story
Origin Prompts are provided to encourage players to create a backstory and sense of purpose for their characters. You can only submit artwork and writing for Origin Prompts for esk that you own; you are not allowed to do them for other players' characters, unless you are commissioned or are collaborating. You can respond to these prompts as many times as you like, but you will only earn the bonus once per prompt per character. If you received an esk in an ownership transfer that previously had Origin Prompts made for it you are allowed to have a "clean slate" and start fresh with them.
Artwork must be in color with full-body character and a simple to full background that shows a clear environment unles
Culdee Fell Engine and Coach AssignmentsYes, I'll be bringing the Culdee Fell Railway into STMY from Season 3, and I've got a couple of stories planned out featuring them. But in order to do so, I've had to come up with some names. Engines 1-8 are named in the Railway Series, as well as Culdee's coach, Catherine. As such, I've had to come up with the others. Here's what I've come up with:
#1 Godred & Matilda (originally - Matilda was reassigned)
#2 Ernest & Claire
#3 Wilfred & Bridget
#4 Culdee & Catherine
#5 Shane Dooiney & Nancy
#6 Lord Harry/Patrick & Matilda
#7 Alaric & Erin
#8 Eric & Florrie (short for 'Florence')
#9 Corran & Nancy (Nancy works with multiple engines)
#10 Aldyn & Erin (Erin works with multiple engines)
