New Omake in Ch. 64, for “My Little Pony: Friendship is Science”.
Been busy with a variety of RL stuff, haven’t had much time for dates with my “fourth girlfriend” (as I’ve been thinking of MoR lately). But work continues with a paragraph now and then, and I recently realized that the structural problem with Ch. 78 might be solvable by splitting off a prelude from it. The fic has not been abandoned – I haven’t even gotten to the good parts yet!
Decided not to split 78. It’s finished at >17,000 words, but I want to finish at least Ch. 79 before publishing anything, because 78 ends on a major cliffhanger. On the plus side, I think the end of Ch. 78 gets us back into the main flow of action again. All of this has taught me a valuable lesson about writing structure, “never recurse more than once” – you can have X happen so that Y can happen, but never have W happen so that X can happen so that Y can happen. Anything worth setting up can be set up in one step.
Ch. 79 done at 6,700 words. I think I’ll see if I can get this entire arc done before I start posting it – if not, I’ll give up and post before too long, but I’m encouraged by how fast Ch. 79 went.
