First off, I just want to say I never thought Past Sins would get as popular as it did. I just wrote a story I wanted to write, and when I first published it I hoped it was going to be as popular as Better Living, which was my most rated fic at the time.

So, I just want to say thank you to everyone that's made fan-art, fan-music, fan-anything for Past Sins and Nyx. You really do honor me with your time and energy. Even though all this attention has made some people despise the story, and by association me, I don't regret a moment of it. I'm happy I was able to present a story so many people like, and Past Sins itself has been a massive learning experience for me.

Now, to get to the real reason I'm making this post. There is another artist here on DA who is beginning and undertaking that ASTOUNDS me. It's something that the fans of the story should love, though I also fear some of the flames it will draw.


=========
To put it simply, space-is-pretty-big is endeavoring to make Past Sins into a comic. He already has the first 5 panels done, and he'd done them very well.
=========

So, please, if you liked Past Sins head over to space-is-pretty-big and give him some support.

He made me draw... and join DA actively... and write a rather long backstory for my OC pony.. well.. and I can't neither draw nor write! That's an impact.

... not to forget that he and Rob made me start appreciating the work of (fanfic) writers... and I'm a art junkie, who barely reads a book at all.

And now there's a bunch of 5/6 star rated stories that I'm interested in but can't read because I got no time :iconfacehoofplz:

I'm the same way about "My Little Dashie", but I guess you struck just the right nerve that got everyone's attention. "Past Sins" is a great story, but my personal favorite of yours is still "Creeping Darkness", which I also hold as my all time favorite MLF fic.

And a thing about your "haters" of the story, if you don't mind me ranting a little (and you may already know this), is it wasn't the actual story that people hate, it was how much publicity it got. People exploded from reading your fic, and thought it would be good to spread the word. Well, unfortinutely it got to points that it was spammed all over forums and chats and where ever else it could. People were trying to do the good thing by getting your story heard, but they did it the wrong way. I've talked to several haters, and most of them admit they have not read it; their reasoning was because they were hearing nothing about it and seeing nothing but Nyx fan art. It was all good to see, and I'm very glad to see it get that much attention, but your ever loving fans went over the line. So it wasn't your fault or your story's.

I know this from "My Little Dashie", I got a lot of hub bub about it, and I did what I could to stop it or rectify the situation. It was a pain in the ass, and I now belong to like ten different forums, but I was able to calm down some very mad people. It's really a catch twenty-two. Just be glad that you, and myself, got mostly the good side of it.

And a comic? Wow, that's really exciting. I know I've had several offers of my own being made into one, but only time will tell. Anyway, good luck Pen with your future work. Hope to see more from you, and I'll keep an eye on that comic as well!

After "I discovered MLP, TIME TO SPAM" there was a "I discovered Past Sins/My Little Dashie, TIME TO SPAM" phase? ... does that surprise me? :D What's more amusing is that the haters probably are bronies :icondoublefacehoofplz:

Now that you mention it: Finally more than plain Nyx fanart! Jeez! The story is more than just one adorable filly with (in retrospect) a slight Mary Sue complex.
For me it was a fun ride for 5 evenings and the reason I became active in the community and wanted to give something of what I got back.

yea, pretty much EVERYONE is bronies that are the haters. Especially, due to Nyx's fan art, a lot of non-fan fic readers. I really feel bad for Pen for the shit he must have had to put up with from people, but from what I've seen he don't give a fuck 'bout them. But as they say, haters gonna hate.

I wouldn't use such strong words to say I don't care. I am sorry that the forums got spammed with stuff, mostly because I'm not a big forum goer myself. I had no clue what was happening and, if I did, I wouldn't have known how to put a stop to it. Still, at this point, there's nothing much I can do.

ROBCakeran53 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011
Er, terribly sorry. I didn't mean to make it out that you don't care, what I intended was to say that you aren't allowing the haters to bother you. And I'm not a forum person either, but when I started having people talking to me about the problem, I just did what I could to calm people down. I can't stop it, neither can you, but we just have to let people know to chill out and let people discover stuff for themselves. Just give it a good or bad word, whichever you feel, then that's it. But don't go around screaming that it's the best thing ever, cause that's only an opinion.

And as you said, there isn't much if anything we can do. You wrote an awesome story that blew people away, and everyone is trying to show their appreciation. It's just unfortinute people also don't know how to tolerate other people's feelings and opinions, which is what makes the big mess in the first place. It's such a shame people can't open their eyes a little more, eh?

Oooooh, as a comic. I will go and be supportive of this endeavor, hopefully the uh, so to put it, past sins of the story itself won't cause people to unduly flame the comic.
