So, 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.

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.

Toodles!

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.

*Ahem*

Welp, it's finally begun! The first chapter of Divergent Days is finally up on fimfiction.net! www.fimfiction.net/story/16811…

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 actually finishing it, but I have begun the process. And again, I must stress that I am no longer posting my fics here, so if you wish to read the updated chapters as they go along, and eventually read the CONTINUATION of said fic, then follow my fimfic! Or, if enough people ask me nicely and bribe me with Sunkist I may post a journal update here for some of you who don't use that site so you know when another chapter is done.

Anyway, it's five thirty in the morning and I haven't started my route yet, so I gotta make like a banana in Celestia's castle and run for my life.
Toodles!

"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 Macintosh pins on his hat. That's me.

Also I might attend Trotcon, still unsure yet.

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...

Frustration.
Anger.
Despair.
Anguish.

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 those... cursed, evil ones that aren't compatible with half of my lamp shades.

I was, and still am, furious! Apparently, our lovely government who just loves to mettle into things they just shouldn't, has decided that those bulbs should be banned.

I... wh... BUWHAAAAT???

No. Aw hell naw. So you're tell me, that now you're forcing me to have to buy a particular type of lightbulb, instead of letting me choose which one? No. Just, no. That's a crock of shit. I will not accept it. I DEMAND RETRIBUTION! I DEMAND JUSTICE. I DEMAND MY GOD DAMNED LIGHT BULBS! HOW DARE YOU CHOOSE FOR ME WHAT IS "RIGHT", OR "ECONOMIC". I don't give a flip! I want what WORKS! As I said before, yes those new ones do have uses. I like them for my shop lights, cause they don't get hot. Which is nice when you're under a car with one of those next to you, cause it won't burn you.

But that's it. I, personally, do not like how they light. It's similar to LED's for me, I don't like those either. LED's cast darker shadows on things, and make only what they are directly hitting visible.

So, now with all that said, looks like I'm going to be blowing what little money I have left on stocking up on incandescent lightbulbs. Next thing I know, the government's gonna tell me what cars I can and can't drive. I'd like to see them try... I'll drive my '86 Buick Riviera so far up their high strung asses they'll be wiping the tire marks off their tongues. Well, providing the noxious fumes and 12 mpg economy doesn't due them in.

Soooooo... 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.

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.

www.fimfiction.net/user/ROBCak… 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 "The Replacements" sometime next week over on Fimfiction.net. Thank you all for reading my work, giving me kind words and some helpful writing tips along the way. Hope to see you on the flip side!

Also... party store was out of Sunkist, I'm drinking Crush. It's okay... *sniff*... but it's still not Sunkist. :iconsadfluttershyplz:

Hello all! First off, I'm back from Canterlot Gardens! Huzzah, it was a blast. Met a lot of awesome people, got drug into helping out at the registration desk for the first two days. All and all, it was great.

Now, onto some news!

My work load is about to go crazy busy, but I will continue to work as much as I can on "The Replacements". Chapter three is almost done. Also, due to some people speaking to me at CG about the topic, I also plan to pick "Divergent Days" back up from the grave and try to finish it, so huzzah it's not dead!

Pretty much all Americans should know what those two numbers represent. The tragic loss of lives, loved ones, a world symbol, trust between people and countries. The increased security, the awareness and fright it had struck in all of us. Be sure not to forget the people lost. Some of those brave souls even did what was not asked of them, and saved countless other lives by forcing the terrorists to crash into a field, instead of another building.

Be sure to give them a moment of silence, and a prayer for the families. It is the least we can do for them.

As of two days ago, a very good friend of mine by the alias of Gearbox was in a severe car accident. I don't know much of the details, but he went under some brain surgery and has not woken up yet to my knowlege. He happens to also be the person who started up and is running the My Little Dashie Visual Novel that many of you know of, and have played the demo.

I'm not a religious man... but I do believe in God. So please, give him your prayers that he will recover.

I don't have the link to her actual art blog, but here is her stream. www.livestream.com/lacesecretd… it is like one am for me, so she'll be streaming for a while. If it's offline, then save it and check later or somethin'. She's a very nice lady, and very interesting to listen to while she does her art. So check her out! and do me a favor and ask what her tumblr is so we can all watch it.

Sorry about that. I guess I'm STILL having technical difficulties. Plus, the storm that was suppose to be past us has decided to grow in size, and slow down. So we're getting hammered. My internet is spotty, so I guess I'll shoot for a different time. Sorry about that folks.

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.
