Mid-season 2 convert to bronyism. No regrets. None. Zip. I could write a book on how much I don't regret it. I could write several stories, both long and short, about how much I don't regret it.

Sonata de Equestria's Original Soundtrack

The Man Himself!

Having been a fan since the first quarter of 2012, MyHobby finally decided that participating in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom wasn't nearly as weird as he had at first thought. Deciding to share his not-weirdness with the entire Internet, he registered on to FIMFiction.net in order to publish his works without all of that silly "working with an actual publishing company" stuff.

He also decided that his best legal defense was to stick his head between his knees and kiss his portly rump goodbye. He hopes to this day that Hasbro will not notice the nerd currently making himself a nuisance around the Internet, and wishes them many a long season to come.

He seems to be physically unable to work on any one story at a time. Eesh.

He is an amateur author, cartoonist, and composer.* You can find links to his non-pony work on his Tumblr (he may start using that again someday).

Pinkie Pie is his hero, just saying.

So is Rainbow Dash, but slightly less so.

*Hahaha no. Not really at all.

I liked this episode for the same reason I liked the castle-exploration episode. Character interactions. Marvelous character interactions. The jokes were fun and came at a steady pace. We got a marvelous bit of world building for those who bother to look, what with the two-headed dog, the Discord lamps, the "wheelchair..."

I think one of my favorite parts was Spike and that colt trading their mint copies like it was a hostage exchange.

I grinned like an idiot when Rainbow Dash fainted. And basically every time she was onscreen. I do a lot of idiot grinning when it comes to My Little Pony.

I think we can unequivocally settle that Twilight Sparkle's library is in fact her private library. Seems she lets ponies borrow every now and again, but it isn't necessarily her job in the canon (not that I wouldn't read any story where that was part of the plot--it's an idea with potential).

Buuuut... the library was full of books before she arrived. Shucks. Nothing unequivocal about that. Maybe she was just running out of room for her personal book collection, which is separate from the library? I dunno anymore. :facehoof:

A nice addition to season four, and one that I'll happily come back to for a second viewing once the season is through (and on Netflix).

I like plans. Plans are lists in embryonic form, and you know that lists are marvelous. Today's list is a reimagined, refined, redefined list of plans for future stories.

Just to make sure you know I haven't abandoned them, really.

Listed in no particular order:


First, and certainly not least, would be Hide and Pie.

Or Hide and Pink. Or Pink and Pie. Or Pie and Q. I still don't really have a title for my little "Pinkie Pie is given Draconequus powers on her birthday" story. It's a might embarrassing.

What I have for this story now is a writing style. I like to experiment a bit with every new story I post, and for this one I'd like to present something akin to the writing in Brian Jacques' Redwall. Beautiful description is a real trademark of Jacques' writing, as well as a friendly narration that makes me feel as though the author himself is telling me the story. I think with that foundation, I can write a fun, interesting story about Pinkie.


Note: Fahr Drill's been written, and you can read it here!

Fahr Drill's next. A silly story about Big Mac, Caramel, Thunderlane, and Spike being Ponyville's Volunteer Firefighters. I think the matter-of-fact narration style seen in Gray Twilight would be good for this story, since I don't want it to be quite as bonkers as The Criminal Mind of Fluttershy.

My real big issue with writing this is that I don't have much of a plot besides "They fight a fire at a bizarre location, hilarity ensues." I kinda need more to go on.

Also, I need more jokes besides "a dragon is a firefighter." Could get old quick.


To write The Rueful Fate of Sweetie Belle, I'm gonna have to get in a real emotional mood. I want this story to have a ton of heart. I want this story, perhaps, if it isn't too much trouble, to actually move my readers. That's gonna take a lot of planning, consideration, effort... Etc.

Maybe i'll have to wait and see if the Doctor Who Fiftieth Anniversary Special gives me the boost I need to complete this, the sequel to my not-quite-ignored crossover, Rarity's Book of Impossible Things.


Braeburn's Ascension; or, The Courtship of Pinkamena Diane Pie is gonna be a little while in coming.

A: I'd like it to tie into season four, just so my Ascension Series remains marginally canonical.

B: I'm focusing quite a bit on Blueblood's Ascension Part III, as well as my other two incomplete stories. And my variety of one shots. Confucius says, "A full plate cannot hold just one more dumpling, as it will knock the rangoon off."


I have half a dozen one shots, story concepts, and other doodads that I may list at a later date. When I feel the need to make more lists. You know how it is.

So, the question, the point of this post, is thusly:

Any input from the audience? Any specific things you'd like to see? Anything I need to avoid? I am my own writer, of course, but I always like having opinions to weigh my own against. It's the fun part about posting my writings in a community: actually having a community to speak with!

Well, if nothing else, this'll make my home page more concise!
