Rant about the lupisvulpes community
Disclaimer Nothing here is to cause drama or directed at anyone specific, i want people to be AWARE of their actions and how shitty people treat each other in this community. This isn't against Lupis herself i respect her as an artist and she hasn't done anything bad to hurt people etc. This isnt hate on lup, this is more of a rant of her community. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE WITHIN THIS COMMUNITY. Please note: this isnt gonna be fancy shit, im bad with grammar and writing im like 2 yrs old By far this has been one of the worst communities i have ever came across, all the people in this community are so hateful and greedy and with absolutely back

Yeaaaaaaaaa... I'm expecting some rage with this. But please, hear me out.

When I had started this story, I was fresh into the MLP fandom. I was new to understanding the characters, my own writing ability, etc. This was for me to practice with, to try some things out. The best way is with an OC of course, but now that I've been writing a lot more (though most of it you've all not seen, yet) I'm finding that this story, with all honesty, was not going in a direction I felt would be right.

At this point, I am forcing myself to write this story. To continue it. I've tried so many things to re-motivate myself into continuing it. But everything is failing me. I've been so hung up on this story, that it's destroying my productivity with the other fics I'm trying to do behind the scenes. I don't feel that it would be right, or fair to you all, to continue this fic under a totally different mind set of when I had started it. I'd rather work on something I know I am putting all my effort into, than something that I just don't care for anymore.

I understand some of you will be upset. Many of you were enjoying my story. And I appreciate everything you've all done. The comments, favorites, even some fan art had sprung up. All of which had driven me closer to keep going. But... it's just... not happening. I open the document, and I sit there. The ideas are all there for it. I know how I want to end it. I know how the following chapters are to be played out. But my will, my ambition to continue this story is just... not existent.

So again, I apologize for giving your hopes up for this story to continue. I plan to remove all the chapters that are up within the next few days. However, I am not destroying the story. I might one day return. Who knows. But for now, I have other stories that my mind has been set on completing for quite some time. Thank you to all who watch me and put up with my inability to be as productive as I wish I were, but this might be the first big step to getting me back and rolling again.

......dude, I'll level with you. I dont give a flyin feather about Divergent days. I was new to the fandom when I read it and it was a lot higher quality then I had seen (then this fandom raised the bar). However what I do care about is seeing you write a multi-chapter HiE. Why?
Because Divergent Days was your first fic. BUT! insead of filling it with an "ultimate evil" or making it an obvious romance/ gary stu, you did a productive slice of life. All and I mean ALL HiEs are full of either pointless action or bad 'living in equestria' where the plot is ALWAYS: "omg human. Nvm not that exciting, lets act like nothing changed".....baring the really good ones of course.
But yourse was different. It didnt Play off a new twist or sudden surprise in the plot. It simply told of a few effects caused by the human arriving.
I'm ok with you killing DD, as long as you write a good, thoughtout, nice multi-chapter fic in the near future. A HiE that dosent have some world ending event. (so basically a civillian version of 'Artical 2' :P) do that and I wont shave your head and replace it with string cheese...

Okay, though I would've liked to read it till the end, it was your story. However, I don't think you should remove the existing chapters. Put them in the scraps if you want.

hmmm please, don't remove the current uploaded chapters; i want to read it when i will have the time for do it, but... please, don't delete this from your dA. Some new people can find it, and enjoy with the current chapters.
If the chapters are uploaded yet, i go to backup it :P

Thanx.

Ha ha. They are actually "troll snacks", cause the box is G4, but the snacks themselves are G3.

Well, as sad as it is to see it go, there's nothing much that can be done about it. If it's not happening, it's not happening.

I suppose now we don't have to worry about destroying the minds of fans who discover that the author of their beloved My Little Dashie also writes (gasp) Human-in-Equestria.

I hope you'll keep me in mind if you ever need a proofreader, yeah? :D

Oh, alright. I remember you saying you didn't before, now that I think about it. Well, when the time comes, I'll contact you on here then.

I'm sorry that you feel that way, friend. I never read it, but I do know what it's like to lose motivation when you know what you want to do with a tale.

It's understandable. I loved the series but forcing yourself to do something you don't like is the worst.

Looking forward to the new stuff! :D

I understand your choice but it would have been nice to do it after the cliffhanger. Perhaps you will bring it back one day.

It all depends on how you feel about writing. If you don't want to write, then don't. You have to want to do it. If you don't enjoy it, how can we?

Well alright, but perhaps when you've got some of your current ideas out, you may be able to go back to it without hindering other stuff... or you could pass it off to another writer, if you know how you want it to end... but if you simply let it die, fine, I will just forget about it, I'll let it be a surprise if it does happen come back one way or another... as I've said before everything you write is gold, so it don't matter, though I am rather invested... but it don't matter... jus' gotta keep telling myself that.

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ... aw, no matter. I'm sure you'll hit us with something better soon enough.

Besides, you already told the whole story in the first chapter. The guy will eventually be turned into a pony, marry AJ and have kids. He won't go back to Earth since he has no one there, but in Equestria he'll find family. Also the blazer will save Equestria, probably by running over Nightmare Moon or something, or maybe some surprise Transformers scenario, idk.

Well, as always, I am waiting patiently for your stuff. :meditation:

Aww... too bad, I wanted to know what happens next... But as you and many before me said, forcing yourself to write is not good.
I completely understand your decision and hope that you will be back writing good stories again soon (and maybe even continue DD :D)
