A First Time For Everything--Excerpt
A MLAATR-Inspired Fanfic
A short while later, Jenny arrived at Sheldon’s house.  As she approached the front door, she felt strangely uneasy, sensing that something, somewhere was wrong; something which compelled her to investigate.  After a moment’s hesitation, she reached over and rang the doorbell, then waited patiently.   
 I sure hope he’s okay, she thought.  He was so upset on Friday night…  And then I didn’t see him anywhere all weekend…  I thought for sure he’d show up at the park, or Mezmer’s, but…
 After a few moments, her ultra-sensitive audio-detection sensors picked up the faint sounds of footsteps coming from inside, approaching the door, and she clasped her hands tightly together.
 But the moment the door opened, she was immediately disappointed.  For it was not Sheldon standing in the doorway, as she’d hoped, but rather a woman, whom Jenny est

Resolution--Excerpt
Resolution
An MLAATR-Inspired Fanfic
By Shvique
Sheldon frequently got on Jenny’s nerves, and tried her patience.  But as Jenny discovers, even a nerd has feelings.  Has Jenny gone too far this time and broken Sheldon’s heart?

----------------------
As Sheldon sat on the bed, lacing his sneakers, he thought very carefully, and he knew what he had to do.  It would be difficult, it would even be painful.  But he had to do it.  He knew that, before he could go forward, he had to let go of the past.  He had no choice.  The ties were cut, and there would be no mending them this time, no going back.

Meanwhile, over 12,000 nerve-wracking, excruciating words later, chapter 5 of my fanfic is finally done and, for those following the story, may be found  here:

www.fanfiction.net/s/12354421/…

Read, leave a comment, etc.
Anyway...chapter 4 of my ongoing MLAATR fanfic, A First Time for Everything, is finally done and may be found here, for any interested parties who are following it:

www.fanfiction.net/s/12354421/…

This one wasn't especially difficult to write per se, but it did present its share of problems nonetheless.  Originally, Chapters 4 and 5 were intended to be one long chapter (they still work together and flow together much better as one chapter than two), but as it became inordinately long and more difficult & unwieldy to edit & pound into something resembling readable prose, I eventually decided to do a King Solomon number on it & just split the baby right down the middle, and what was originally a chapter 4 is now a chapters 4 and 5. 

Hopefully, it won't be another 4-month wait for chapter 5 to appear; I really want to get through all this tedious preliminary stuff, so that I can get to the really fun & interesting stuff that follows later on.

Anyway...hope the readers enjoy my literary efforts, such as they are.

Anyway...Don't know if anyone here's following my creative efforts much (meager as they are, particularly as compared with some of the really creative & prolific creatives in this site.)  But, for those who have been following my fanfic story, "A First Time for Everything," you'll be pleased to know that I am still working on it, I haven't abandoned the thing (though I'm sure it must've seemed that way, since it's been over 6 months since the last update.)  I really didn't intend to backburner the thing so long, but the last 7 months have been...eventful for me (& not in a good way, either.)  Nothing major, life-altering or anything like that, just...extremely inconvenient, spirit-diminishing and very-draining on my creative energies.  (It's difficult to get into the proper mood & frame of mind for dreaming up made-up stories when you're dealing with drainpipes backing up human waste into your bathroom & other, similarly pleasant experiences.)  Plus the fact that the next chapter in the story (chapter 3, for those keeping score) has been a bit...difficult to write anyway ("difficult" being a euphemism for "Big pain in the..."  You get the idea...)  Nevertheless, I have been making some progress on it (incredible though it might seem), and it will hopefully not be too much longer before I'm ready to post the new chapter, and hopefully get on with the writing of the rest of the story.  (The really fun part of the story doesn't even happen for quite awhile yet; the junk I'm writing now is all mostly preliminary/set-up stuff.  Not terribly exciting or interesting to write or read, probably, but absolutely necessary for the structure of the story, in establishing such things as motivation, frame of mind, emotion,  all that cool stuff that has to be clearly established now, in order for the stuff that happens later in the story to make clear sense.

Anyway, thinking way beyond the completion of the story (which--to warn you--is probably going to be another ungodly-long one, although I didn't originally intend it to be so), I'm not sure what I want to do.  I've got ideas for fanfics in several other genres, & I don't want to just get stuck in this one (i.e., MLAATR, even though I do still have some cool ideas for adventures for Jenny & her friends to get into.)  For example, I've got some ideas for MLP fanfics (even though there's like about a hundred & fifty gazillion MLP fanfics floating around on the web as it is, any one of which are probably going to be better/more original than my efforts, so it's a bit discouraging to think about.)  But I also have other, older ideas for other genres as well.  (For example, I still have a bunch of ideas from years ago, for Pixie Hollow fanfics that I never got around to writing down, beyond the most-basic of plot-synopses.  But since the Mouse Company seems to have largely abandoned that particular franchise (in favour of endless Frozen merchandising....**yawn**), that makes it fair game for fanfic-authors to come up with new ideas of their own, it seems to me.)  And...some other ideas...  Too many ideas, too little free time in which to bring them to fruition....  (Oh, if only I could earn a living from writing this schlock!  It would, if not exactly make my life easier, at least make it more convenient for me...)

And....in the meantime, I can only try not to let the @#$^*&!! online trolls get to me!  I know, I know, pay no attention to them, they're only trolls...  I get it, I should just ignore them.  And I suppose I should count my blessings that I haven't had to deal with too many of them over the years.  Still, they are a drain & have a knack for draining a lot of the fun out of an activity.  Why do people do that?  I suppose the easiest explanation is, they're small-minded people with no talent or imagination of their own, so they can't produce anything worthwhile on their own, so their only source of happiness isn't even genuine, legitimate happiness, but merely the perverse pleasure of tearing down the works of others. 

I just can't wrap my head around that.  Because even though I too can be critical (even harshly critical at times), it's only because I have very high standards.  And besides, I can also be just as effusive with my praise, if I encounter a work that I believe deserves it.  So it's not just all negative with me (which means I'm not a troll.)

In the meantime, if anyone's reading this, thank you for taking the time to do so.  Whoever you are, I hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving Holiday, try to enjoy what's left of it (and the weekend to which it's attached) before we all have to return to the giant hamster-wheel of everyday life on Monday morning.  Me, in the meantime, I've got a few activities to do (Harvest Festival maybe) after which I want to spend at least some time today & tomorrow doing the umpty-umpth proofread of Chapter 3 of "A First Time" and hopefully be able to stick a fork in it & call it "done" soon.  Wish me luck.

I didn't like the season 8 premier either. full of nasty implications and lazy writing.

Thank you once again for sharing the links for these two articles.  I finally had the chance to finish reading both of them in great detail, and needless to say, I agree with every single point made, as I think they're all excellent, valid points (in fact, I wish I'd thought of some of them myself.)  I think the one thing we all agree on, the one thing most irritating, is the obvious fact that the new writers of the series simply don't care about what they're doing.  They have no understanding of or respect for the show, the characters, or what made them appealing to such a wide fan-base to start out with.  (That being the case, one wonders why they were even hired in the first place.)

Anyway, thanks again for sharing the links to those articles with me; they were very much appreciated and were very encouraging.

Thank you for providing the links; I'll definitely spend time going over & reading them later this evening.  (All weekend long at BabsCon, I kept thinking, "I can't be the only one on earth who detested the Season Premiere and the whole 'Friendship School' concept!  Am I wrong or nuts on this?")  

What really irritates me about the "Friendship School" thing (apart from the fact that it's so wrong-headed to start out with) is, there are still so many possibilities & potentialities for good story-ideas they could have used but that they won't now!  (I for one would love to see a follow-up to "A Perfect Pear."  I'd also like to see some dragons besides Spike who are good, civilised & kind.)

Ah well...at least there's always the comic-book series and fanfics.

Thanks again for the support and the links.

Ah, thanks.  Just out of curiosity, how'd you know it was my birthday?  (I don't remember if/where it appears on my profile.)  Anyway, thanks again for the birthday wishes.
