I'm not misunderstood. I'm just bad.

Do YOU want to join the Evil League of Evil?

There are two ways to join:

1.  Demonstrate your heinous nature through crimes and malicious acts disruptive to the fabric of society  Please, no tying people to railroad tracks or kidnapping sidekicks.  We get a dozen of those every week.  Show some creativity, or at least an ironic self-awareness of your lack thereof.  Legitimate evil activity include tumblring Dolan comics or writing alicorn OC fiction.  Document all evil activity and submit to the Evil League of Evil headquarters in Washington, D.C.

2.  Click the "Follow" button on this page.

Don't hesitate to comment on my stories! If you see something you like, or don't like, or have an idea how to make it better, say so. If you don't comment because you come in thru EqD or Spacebattles & haven't ever bothered to make a fimfiction account--stop that! It's pretty damn selfish. Make an account. It takes about thirty seconds.

We read every submission

With predatory grins

We've got the supplication that you just sent in

It needs evaluation before it's in the bin

Let's see if plots maintain their course

Good grammar would be nice of course

It's Bad

So I uploaded that video of you, me and my friend Summer at the folksong convention:

#227 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

Was wondering if you would be able to help me with improving my writing skills?

#226 · 4w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

I really want to say something nice here, but I'm having trouble putting it into words.

I was just thinking back through past conversations we've had about writing, and realizing how much further I've seen as a result of having those discussions. I'm not sure if the way I'm seeing things is actually correct, but I feel like I see a lot more and a lot further than I did before. It has helped me see things that I hadn't seen before, and better understand why people enjoy certain types of stories.

So, thank you.

Well, this is an unexpected honor.  Thank you very much for the watch.
