It's one thing to be busy with a job and not find the time to post new chapters on DeviantArt, but it's another to not even be around at all and just disappear off the face of the earth. 

The past few months I've been (understandably) preoccupied, but if I'm going to be biding my time in the wait for an opening to get the opportunity and mental strength to continue writing my NOVEL, I might as well keep y'all in the loop! So Shrapnel... what are you up to these days?

Well, I am currently teaching English to freshman non-English majors in Changchun, China. I have over 300 students and each class averages about 45 students or so. I am currently teaching at my particular university for one year. What the future holds, I don't know, but I'm excited regardless. This is a whole new world for me. Literally.

Admittedly I've needed time to get away from the mental pressures of updates. Besides the work that keeps me very preoccupied throughout the day, it's been nice to just... live. 

That being said, I honestly miss my stories. I miss writing and interacting with my readers. I miss that thrill of comprising a story that people still read, even while I've been gone. I'm not making any promises of when I will return (as I never seem to keep them), but if I can say anything, it's that I intend to return to finish what I started. 

Until that day arrives, thank you for your patience, your support, and your love. It means the world to me. 

You guys rock!

Hello, I'm Ryan and I love art and writing.

I'm a HUGE cartoon fan and animation and cinema have been interests of mine for a long time. Video games and sports are awesome as well and yes.....I am a brony. Overall, I love creativity and seeing what others have to contribute as well!

Don't forget to read my story on FIMfiction!…

Congrats on the China thing! I hope you get plenty of opportunities there. Will we see more grandkids and the unknown stallions and mares that Cherry, Flora, Orion, Bucky, Peach, and Berry married?

Hi! Do you mind if I make foals inspired by yours, but with my own designs? Anything similar is purely a coincidence
