Why children of the Mane Six?

When I decided to do artwork and fanfics on a more common basis, I wanted to make something that people enjoy seeing but give it my own spin.

There is no shortage fan children in the MLP fanbase, but I'm trying to make it more than just a byproduct of shipping. I want my characters to be believable kids who have their own unique personalities, traits, strengths, and weaknesses. In short, I want them to be a convincing next generation and I hope you all enjoy the effort I put into my work to do so.

Thank you all for your awesomeness. ;)
Chapter 38 begins the true start of my story's trek to the climax. A lot of things are going down right now and I'm sure some of you have some questions. 

I'd like to hear them.

Hearing you guys voice any confusions or inquiries helps me be reminded of what needs to be answered. You guys are the readers and when I finish this story, I don't want there to be any loose ends to this tale.

So lay them on me! Maybe you want to know about certain characters or events. Maybe you don't understand a plot point that may or may not have been explained in detail. Whatever you have to ask, I'd like to know.

Any questions you have, any at all, are encouraged. 
  • Listening to: Korra - Service and Sacrifice
  • Reading: Job application websites
  • Watching: The Legend of Korra Season 3 (which is amazing)

Which Mane Seven interaction would you like to see more of? Thoughts?

It's fine. Just a bit curious as to why I was invited to a group about belly button ponies when none of my work shows or mentions them.

I didn't read all of it. It was a book's length. Haha

Good luck with the group.

Hi Shrapnel,
I know you probably get this a lot, but your art and stories are amazing! :happybounce: 
I wish I was talented in writing and drawing like you are. 
Do you have any tips that you can give me?
Thanks so much!

Well, thank you trapezoidgummy for the compliment. I'm very glad you've liked my stuff and I'm honored that you'd ask me a question like this. :)

It's harder to give (if I'm even truly qualified to give) advice without specific questions to answer, but here are some ideas that has worked for me:

Don't be afraid to share your work. If you don't share, nobody will see it. Even great artists will go completely unknown on Deviantart because they never shared their work, so that's something to keep in mind. Find some groups of interest and post your stuff on them. You'll gain better recognition that way. 

As for story writing, there are many different styles. A big key to know is character development. That is essential to a good story! If you throw in a few names and never develop their characteristics, flaws, likes/disklikes, and so on, people will have a harder time caring about them. Let the reader get to know them! You want people to feel happy when they feel happy and sad when they are sad. If you do this and don't rush your story, people will be more invested. 

So there are two pieces of advice. It's not much but I consider them both useful to get started with. I hope they were of help. ;)
