I was thinking...

Mr. Tolkien wrote "Far over the Misty Mountains cold" for The Hobbit, aaand that's a pretty cool song.

So, I can't help but ask: is Mr. Blanket  going to wrote a song too?

Is he going to write something like a Griffin lullaby, something with a name very similiar to

"My Little Hero: [something] is magic", for Zenith? :pinkiehappy:

And will someone sing this "My Little Hero" as someone else did with Misty Mountains?

Will I explode for epicness overdose?

In the three years and five months that I've been a member of the fandom, you are the first person to do such an examination of my whole body of work. I only have one thought after reading it, and I'll leave that there. Thank you for taking the time to do such an examination.

Hehe, you're weird, so I like u ! Hug?

Hey, I've made a blog post about your writing, and the effect it has on me. (Most of that post has been bouncing around my head for a crazy-long time, but only now have I actually sat down and written it all out.) I'd be greatly interested to hear your own thoughts.

I can only hope that I've given you ample cause to enjoy a long period of quality reading.:twilightsmile:

Interesting. I wonder why there aren't any raven/lion hybrids in mythology? Perhaps they are too iconic on their own?

One of my larger mistakes is not having read all of your fics. I intend to rectify that.

Dear Loyal Watchers, Interested Visitors, and Confused Passersby:

Midnight Rambler has posted a blog in which he makes a metaphor of my body of work. It is, in fact, the first time that I can recall that anyone in this fandom has done a retrospective on my whole body of work and attempted to make a larger statement about it. He certainly has my thanks for taking the time to put his feelings on my portfolio into such a concise—even enjoyable—allegory.

Everything being equal, which nothing truly is, he draws a conclusion which was apt, well developed, and not entirely complimentary.

I'm very interested in seeing what you all feel about his observations. If you have some free time, please click the link above and peruse Ramb's blog. I'd especially like to know if his conclusion has any bearing on the lack of success of my last few works.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be huddled under my blanket.

Stay Awesome,
