and then gem that somehow didn’t make it into the update

WAIT. THAT’S IT? THAT’S ALL THE SCRIPT IS?!

I need a reaction image for that.

You make Westwood scared. How can you have such an awesome story without scads and scads of planning?

Meanwhile, this is the folder containing what I had for the Elements of Investigation scripts

And yes, the unused portion of Hurricane Fluttershy is a reference to two shapechanging/disguising species in Doctor Who and two more from G1 MLP.

Well, to be said, if I saved out all the text in my magical planning document it would be about 57.4kb so … there’s still a lot going on.

Aaaand I do most of the planning in my copious amounts of spiral notebooks, of which I have about… 27 spiral notebooks full?

…Buuuut yeah I keep most of the actual dialogue in my butt until i poot it out right before. And last update wasn’t exactly script-heavy.

I don’t keep notes of any kind.

Same here. My notes are the asks I need, and I make sure to save in a numbered order. Then I just draw stuff to them and hope it won’t suck.

Any plans I may have is by memory and if I forget anything, then I just shrug and think it wasn’t worth remembering then.

Pish-posh! I don’t even have them in order.

I had forgotten I had even submitted that question, it was way back when the changeling storyline was reaching it's climax.

nightguardmod answered:

Yeah. I’m reeeeeeeallly slow at updating, and it’s a case of pick and choosing the right things to use.

Ask the Night Guards. Send in an ask, it’ll get used in a year.

Maybe.

Sorry about that.

One of my favourite things about having an ask blog is taking year-old asks and twisting their meaning to do random stuff.
