I have a question. Would it be ok if I used the human-augment-robot idea (just that concept of some characters are human, some are robots, and some are both) in a story of mine (a fanfiction)? It's a private story that will only be read by me and a few close friends/family member. I never plan to put it online. I'm only writing it to test my storytelling skills. The story's pretty developed, so it would be difficult to take out. I just need to know if it's ok. If not, I can remove it.

sure! I didn’t invent that concept, so feel free to do whatever you want with it! :D

Maybe you should just do simple sketches of Slice too like you do with Steamquestria. You know, just pencil lines and basic colors.

once again, it’s not about time management, so changing the process (or handing all or part of it over to other people to help, which has also been suggested) will not fix the underlying issues.

Slice has been a source of increasing depression and anger for me for over a year now, for many reasons but primarily because it’s just not something I enjoy doing. I’d been trying to continue it, because of both the people who liked it and the positivite parts that were left (the cakes = forever my crew), but it’s become clear at this point that these problems are not going to go away and are just going to get worse the more I force myself to keep doing it. I don’t like talking about stuff like this on my tumblr, because I like to keep things fun and this is pretty much just me sitting here feeling sorry for myself over a pony comic, but…yeah that’s pretty much the reason Slice would go on hiatus like every other week.

I’d like to be able to have it not completely ruin the Cakes for me as characters, and hopefully, in the future when I’m not right in the middle of feeling bad about it, be able to do the occasional picture or comic related to it (like I do with Moonstuck), so I think it’s better to just put it completely out of its misery. at this point I’m hoping to finish the pageant story, which will end it on a fun note, and then maybe a big post about what I had planned (never got to the griffins or Trixie, baw). but that’ll be a while, because I’m still in “oh god I really don’t want to think about Slice ever again” mode. :I we’ll see!

I think you have every right to fill this tumblr with whiny bullshit, it's your tumblr! We wouldn't be following this blog if we didn't care about your opinions about stuff :p Besides, it's useful to vent.

my most controversial post yet: Twist is adorable.

Rename it to “Slice of Death: The Dead Story that isn’t Alive”? Lol. Just kidding. I do like it a lot, but I also like streamquestria. Is there an option to clone you?

it’s not a time management issue; Steamquestria has nothing to do with it. it’s more that Slice has been a really negative experience for a long time now. :S like, to the point where I seriously wish I’d never even started it in the first place. I’m not gonna go into details because I don’t want to clog up this tumblr with my whiny shit, but as I’ve said before: it’s just an mlp fancomic. if it’s causing me this much stress and depression, I’m not going to continue it.

I’m glad people enjoyed it though! I’ve gotten some very sweet messages about it, and I appreciate that people stuck with it for 2+ years. I would’ve liked to done more on it for those of you who were still reading, but unfortunately I think it’s for the best to just finish it.

eta 1: this is not about Steamquestria. it is not Steamquestria vs Slice. it is not a time management problem that could be solved by stopping Steamquestria. this has been an ongoing problem for over a year now; Steamquestria is completely, totally, absolutely 100% irrelevant (except possibly in that it reminded me that doing blogs is supposed to be fun and not horrible).

eta 2: it’s not because of “hate” or people who don’t like Slice (seriously, should I be offended that you guys think I’m the kind of person to throw a fit because someone said they didn’t like it?). as I said, I don’t want to get into the details, but this is not a reaction to someone daring to not like my art or writing. I appreciate the support, but please understand that this is personal and has as much to do with ~haters~ as it does with Steamquestria. so, you know. nothing.

well, that got kinda depressing, here’s a picture of a cat:

So have you just abandoned Slice of Life? If you are just on a break that's okay, but at least make a little post or something to let followers know what's up

honestly I think yet another non-update just to say there’s no-update would just annoy people!

atm I’m alternating between scripting out the final story, and pretending Slice doesn’t exist. so, still kind of on long indefinite hiatus I guess!

In steamquestria's update where Proctor Celestia talk to Luna she said that Luna would like Twilight. My doubt is why? Is because even Luna was a genius in Robot Engineering or something else? If the first is true, Luna's actual state is a result of her own experiments? (Sorry for my English, I can't really write better than this T_T)

because Twilight is just SUPER LIKEABLE, come on

seriously though: I think Luna and Twi seem like they would get along! they can geek out about Steamswirl and build rayguns and defy the laws of physics in their mad quest for SCIENCE together.

Luna was also an elementologist, although she was more into research than engineering. I don’t want to say too much more or I’ll probably forget to shut up and spoil everything! some of that comes up during their trip to the library, so soon :D

anyway here is Briar in one of her more relaxed moments. just a nice easy day for this princess!
