Ponies helped me discover my talent in writing. Now my number one goal in life is to make a pony story as great as Past Sins or even My Little Dashie.
In Past Sins, when Nyx cried out for Twilight while being stolen away, I wanted to rip Princess Celestia’s throat out.
Pulling that sort of thing with someone’s kids is the fastest way to make me kill you…
1/26/2012 I don’t understand why people think Past Sins was so great. The writing was mediocre at best and Nyx was a clear Mary Sue/Self Insert.
I hate Nyx because of her Facebook page. S/He was very rude to me when I told them I couldn’t find Past Sins on Fanfiction and they replied “FAIL” and laughed at me just because that was where I went to look. Because of them, I can’t look positively at Nyx. But I don’t care, because I hate her.
I’m no good with drawing or making sculptures. I’m a writer, which is my contribution to the community. When I hear, ‘Fallout Equestria’ or ‘Past Sins’ or ‘End of Ponies’, it makes me feel so incompetent for what I do. But then the few bronies that love my stories come out… And I feel better. But the feel that I’m incompetent will never go away with monster of stories like that. I feel that those stories have stunted many a writer. I mean, look at what people have to read, it’s an understandable feeling of inadequacy.
I should be happy some bronies like my work… But those stories still loom over my tiny self confidence.
I haven’t been able to forgive Celestia for her actions in Past Sins since I read it. Even though I know the fic does detail why she did it, and even if the cannon Celestia hasn’t done anything like what she did in it, I still cannot shake that feeling off.
Ponies has likely forged the entirety of my future. I don’t think I would have started writing if it wasn’t for amazing fanfiction like Past Sins, and now I know my passion in life is to write.
