    Hello hello! With NaPo coming up, we're having a special song lyric discussion for our Poetry Readers pad this March! The date/time will be (adjusts to your timezone). You can bring song lyrics from any musical artist you like to discuss. Some examples of the things we might talk about would be favourite lines, how the language of the song makes you feel, etc.

    As usual all YWS rules and the content rating system will apply to the pad. Said pad will be posted in the Poetry Readers club and on the People's Tab.

    We hope to see you there!

    Quillfeather Honestly though I actually admire that and shouldn't always be referred to as a big ego, because it's 1000 times better then being overly hard on yourself like me. Telling your you and your work is horrible is not healthy. And honestly it's nice to see someone who supports themselves and has a healthy attitude toward your work. I often tear myself apart over my art/writing and self image, and actively think my work is bad and worse then everyone else. Anywho I think we should normalize thinking out stuff is good

    Announcing 2023’s first Gen Lit Clinic!

    What is Gen Lit Clinic? Gen Lit Clinic is a pad discussion where everyone brings a question or two related to the topic of the month. This month, that is story arcs.

    The term ‘story arc’ can be used in a variety of ways, but for simplicity we’re going to take it in a very broad form. A story arc is basically the progression of your narrative across your short story, book or perhaps script. If you have a question about what kind of story arc you’re shaping, how to make it engaging, or what to do about conflict, ask it below!

    An example question: how do you write an engaging redemption arc?

    Gen Lit Clinic will happen on this date/time:

    The pad link will be posted in the People’s Tab, so stay tuned for that!

    You think you're better than them, you think they're really your friends, but when it comes to the end you're just the same as them just hit me deep. They really describe my life for the past two years.

  • Ngl this scene was kinda fun to write
    How did she stop the Zippu?
    The device could obliterate matter from a subatomic level, reversing it's effects was impossible.
    Several other things didn't add up.
    Why hadn't Feronia informed me that she'd sent a mediator? The star knew how skittish I could get around new stars. Doing something without telling me was out of character for her.
    I remembered that the Tavatian had addressed her as Everess. Everess was a title only held by royal stars. To my knowledge none of the royals alive today bore the name Eos.
    I tried to come up with a way to voice these thoughts. I didn't want Eos to feel uncomfortable around me. I wanted spilling her secrets to come naturally for her.
    ''Where did you say you were from again?'' I asked.
    Eos gave a casual shrug.
    ''That's not something I'm ready to share.''
    I considered her words slowly.
    Her lack of willingness to divulge her background led me to conclude multiple different possibilities.
    She was ashamed of her family and refused to be associated with them, or she had no family with which to speak of, or perhaps her family had sent her here with an ulterior purpose.
    ''Let me deduce then.'' I said easily. ''The Tevatian back there adressed you as Everess so your descended from royalty. But I've never heard of an Everess with the name Eos. That probably means that your family prefers to keep themselves hidden from the public eye. They may have committed a crime perhaps, or some other dark deed and fell from grace. So people prefer to pretend that they don't exist. You are probably ashamed of your family's heritage so you decided to disappear from your home galaxy and hook up with the Astra Planeti. Is that your story?''
    I glanced at her.
    He face lit up with amusement.
    ''You must think my life is quite a fairy-tale.''
    I looked at her closely hoping to discern the answer in her expression. Several emotions glimmered in her deep amber gaze, but I couldn't glimpse at the secret beneath their depths.
    Eos it seemed kept her secrets closer then the hair on her pelt.
    But somehow I felt at ease around her. Comfortable. She had this welcoming aura around her that reminded me of a fire's warmth.
    ''What about you, what fantastical whim of fancy might you stem from?'' the star asked tilted her head daintily.
    ''Your a traveler,'' she guessed. ''You've never stayed in one place for most of your life. You've seen much, perhaps too much. You go around from world to world spreading your knowledge and experience where ever it's needed most.''
    She gazed at me, and something cheeky entered her tone as she went on, ''Is that your story?''
    I just stood in stunned silence. She'd been accurate down to the last detail. Before I joined the Astra Planeti I had been a wanderer going from planet to planet helping the being that inhabited each one find their peace.
    I felt my communicator buzz.
    I sighed.
    ''I can tell you what my story is going to be.'' I groaned. ''Feronia screeching into my ears all day about what a clutz I am.''

You'd better wise up, Pony... you get tough like me and you don't get hurt. You look out for yourself and nothing can touch you, man.
