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

If you know of any brony groups or events around Washington DC, let me know.  I based my avatar on a drawing by kim1486.


Somepony asked a while ago for an index to my blog posts. Here it is. I put it on my user page, so you can always find it there. It's mostly in reverse-chronological order, newest first, but I tried to put the best posts in each section first, and to list posts after other posts that they refer back to.

My friend it's still not a bad idea to write such a story just as practice. I had quite a time with mine, even if it felt like most of that time was spent wondering how to keep it from spiraling into the abyss of bad writing and fridge logic. I am surprised, but people seem to like, although I know this is definitely not my best work.

I have a favor to ask of you. Since I tried to make my contest entry have a more literary bent, in part inspired by your blogs, as well as by trying to create a more traditional tragedy by character flaw, could you please perhaps give me a feedback on the story? What was botched? What was good? If it's not too much.


Thank you.

>>1238009 It's over Aug. 2, but now I'm reconsidering whether I should do it. I have so many things to do between now and then.

#1238009 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·


In that case, I need to ask "When's it over?"

Or, more precisely, "When's the deadline to have pledges in?", because that's what I really need to do.

>>1237583 It's started, but I still need to write a post explaining what I'm going to be doing for it.

#1237583 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

I haven't pledged in Clarion Write-A-Thon yet!  When does the write-a-thon itself start?
