Join me, and together we shall rule the world. Mostly me, though.

Do YOU want to join the Equestrian 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.  Legitimate evil activities include tumblring Dolan comics or writing alicorn OC fiction.  Document all evil activity and submit to the Equestrian 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 think could be better, say so. If you don't comment because you come in thru EqD or Spacebattles & haven't bothered to make a fimfiction account--stop that! It's pretty damn selfish. Make an account. It takes 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

Fimfiction provides no easy way to find old blog posts, so this index will always be on my user page. Each list is mostly in chronological or reverse-chronological order.

I've added a few good blog posts by other people.

In case you haven't seen it, ScarletWeather is doing a series of blog posts analyzing the mystery genre (here's the latest post), and I though you might be interested, given your own analysis of the genre.

#383 · 8w, 22h ago · · ·

>>2285014 Yeah, figured that out just when you were posting.

Oh well, I've done dumber things.

#382 · 8w, 22h ago · · ·

>>2284923 Pony Play only shows up if you turn the mature filter off.

#381 · 8w, 1d ago · · ·

Pony Play is gone? I had it on my profile under a list of favorite stories, but I noticed that it has disappeared from there and I can't find it at all now. I hope you didn't delete it, because that story was brilliant.

It does seem like it may be some sort of site error, though, as another story I had on there has also disappeared...

Oh, it's because I'm using a different computer than I usually do and the mature filter was turned on. I'm stupid.

>>2284075  Woo-hoo!  Thanks!!

Funny, I thought I followed PaulAsaran.
