When it gets to a point where you’re not even sure you’re going to get it done by Halloween, /the next year/, something is clearly up. It’s taking my time away from doing stuff that I want to do, and honestly, it started out as just something that was going to be done in 3 updates, then I decided to complete my (at the time), very incomplete puppets, and time just went on, and on, and on, until I’m not even sure why I wanted to do it in the first place.
It’s taking time away from doing the cute little updates I want to do, and it’s frankly not worth my stress and worry over the fact that it’s not complete by now, so I think I’ll just can it, the ending payoff just is not worth it, in my honest opinion.
I may, at some point in the future, want to come back and finish it up, but it’s doubtful that I will, so if anyone wants to know how/why/what the situation was that made Rainbow the way she was, I’ll include the reasoning, and my planned ending for the stupid-update-series-turned-arc, at the end of this post, under a spoiler tag.
I’m actually quite disappointed with myself, I wanted this first story arc-thing to be a test to see if I could handle doing it for future, actual arcs that I want to do. I’ve clearly failed, but I’ve learned that I shouldn’t just start this sort of stuff on a whim, and hope to see it finish without stressing about it, and as such, I will have future arcs fully planned, probably down to what they’re going to say per panel, because that’s probably the hardest part of doing this for me: the dialog. Don’t get me wrong, I have some /fantastic/ friends who, being full fledged writers, are more than happy to help me with this, but really, the magic is gone out of this update arc, and I just don’t want to do it any more.
Not to mention there’s something I feel I need to address in regards to the blog: we have yet to see any of Twilight/Rainbow’s friends or families. Hell, I haven’t even shown freaking Spike until recently… and this blog has been open for nearly two years.
In case I haven’t been clear above, which is all very possible, the breakdown is:
- No more Nightmare Night arc.
- Yes, the blog will continue to be updates.
- As will the comic series.
- The blog will move back to a Slice-of-Life style blog, as it was before this NMN mess.
- The rest of the mane 6 (and possibly other ponies from around town), will feature more in this blog, be it cameo appearances, or answering actual questions.
Of course, this will take place after my preparations for the next comic page (which if you’ve been following my DA page, you’d know that I’ve halted production on it until I’ve met a specific set of requirements to continue), possibly earlier, but there’s a few modifications I need to make to the base puppets so I can make more ponies, so it won’t be until that’s done, and no, I won’t be deleting the previous NMN updates.
Anyway, for those interested, hit the break and I’ll spoil the ending for the arc, since if it were me, I’d hate someone else who’s work I’m following to cancel it without giving closure (no matter how minor).
((Sorry guys, I’m just not interested in doing the arc any more, not to mention I’m sure none of you guys actually gave a damn, and just want kisses from BestHors1 and BestHors2.))
