People have asked if I accept "tips." Rather than that, please consider supporting my preferred charity, the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club.

My latest fever-dreams...

  • The Railway Ponies: HighballSteel doesn’t worry about a colt’s well-being. Railroad cars don’t have much concern for the bodies of ponies. But, despite the dangers, I wanted to be a railway pony. I wanted to be like Highball. 24,441 words ·532 views ·148 likes ·0 dislikes

So this just happened:

Free publicity is best publicity. Congrats on the recognition champ. You deserve it!

I've really enjoyed reading your stories, you have an incredibly varied range as an author. It's not often you find someone talented enough to pull off writing something as sad as Patience, She Said and also something as epic as The Song of Syhlex (my personal favorite of yours btw). Keep up the great work!

If I may say, my good sir--I see you everywhere. Everyone loves you, and you're humble enough to thank them. That's a really good sign. I would really like to read one of your works. Which one would you say that you're the most proud of?

That's why we got you, for the awww momments with Twilight and Spike. Kinda funny one of my new best friends ships those two as a couple.

Yeah, it's been slow-going as of late, and things are odd all over for me. I actually was just looking at a map of Baltimore, daydreaming about what it would be like if I could afford to go back to BronyCon this year (there's a restaurant on the Inner Harbor called The Rusty Scupper... sounds like my kinda place, and I'd love to catch another Orioles game), but it's just not in the cards. Thanks for the image, though. It cheered me up! Now if only the show would do something similar, right?:moustache::twilightblush:

Heya, Descy! Ain't heard any noise from you in a while, so I figured I'd check up on ya. I remember you said that some personal IRL things were dragging you down, so consider this also a minor nudge that we all still love ya. I've been on this site for... ugh, too dayum long, and you're still one of the best around. Don't sweat us for the moment, brah. Focus on your life, and let the pone flow when it may.

I'm very grateful that you are enjoying it!:twilightsmile:

I don't comment on stories or blogs.

I don't because whenever I do, I always end up stating things poorly, sounding like an idiot, or making things far worse for myself or the author. I can't even comment on Cold in Gardez's blogs anymore because I've embarrassed myself in front of him so many times.

It turns out that I just did the same thing to another person I respect very much here in the fandom, the author Aquaman.

In my career, I've had to help deal with the emotional and physical fallout that teens who decide to become sexually active encounter. There are few things more heartbreaking than watching someone who had convinced themselves that they are mature enough to deal with their choice suddenly realize that they aren't. In viewing the story from my experiences, I assumed that what was happening in his newest work was far less innocent than what it actually was.

In short... it was just a kiss, and I didn't catch that.

I am now afraid that my comments will cause his story to fall off the Feature Bar, or make him lose the "Most Dangerous Game" contest.

So, signal boost, if you are looking for some reading this evening, please consider Far From the Tree by Aquaman. It's a deeply emotional work, and paints an utterly fantastic picture of Applejack.

Also, please excuse my idiocy...

... when I inevitably do so on one of your stories.

Stay Awesome,
