Hey there everypony.

I think, at this point, I'm just going to have to call it... I'm not going to be writing any more MLP fanfiction. I'm so focused on learning new skills, getting a job, etc. that I've become almost entirely detached from my Deviantart and my writing in general.

I had a great run, and I have to thank every one of you who gave me words of praise when I published Common Sky back in April 2011. It took a tremendous leap of faith on my part to let that story touch the light of day (pun intended), as I was convinced it was terrible. I still, to this day, get at least a dozen comments around the internet on it a week, with people telling me how they love it. Those words have meant the world to me, and still do, even to this day.

I may continue writing fiction in the future when I run out of projects to keep myself busy with. It'll most likely be something along the lines of original sci-fi, as I so insistently keep hinting at. As for MLP fanfiction... well, I wrote one really good fanfic (Common Sky), one mediocre fanfic (LitC), and one fanfic that didn't even end up getting completed (Fragments). I guess that covers all of my bases, right?

I've said this time and time again, that I began writing MLP fanfiction as an escape from my problems, such as severe depression and physical disability. The community - you all - have been wonderful to me. I really felt included and liked, and never felt like I was unwanted. You all helped me stay positive until I was able to fix my life. Thank you for your kind words.

I'm not going to suddenly vanish, of course. This DA will remain, and I might occasionally post short stories or other original fiction, and comment on pictures and stories I like. But this hiatus is now permanent, and I don't see myself coming back.

Love you all,

Are you ever coming back to pony fiction?
SyrinKitty Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
 Nope. Working too much on my own projects. The things I want to say don't really fit into the MLP universe at all, and makes things out of character. I'll probably still do other fanfiction, though, like Madoka or something similar.

Aww, come on... I got completely enchanted by Fragments, you can't possibly leave us hanging like that... Don't start something you're not gonna complete, right? It has so much potential, and your style of writing is, simply put, genius. It awakens emotions. It would be a shame if you just left it unfinished like that :(

Please, pretty please, come back to it?
