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

Bad Prose

Bad Prose

It's Bad

(From "Bad Prose" by Sordid Euphemism.)

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.

>>1368610 I think we're more like the school newspaper table.

I confess to not having read any The Descendant stories other than A Cup of Joe until now.  For whatever reason, while his name comes up a lot on fimfiction, it doesn't come up so much in the Skywriter / Cold in Gardez / horizon / GhostOfHeraclitus / Horse Voice / me group that I spend most of my time in.

That's the cool kids' table.

I'm not allowed to sit there.
