    New Holiday Story: Where The Heart Is

    I've posted a new story about going home for the holidays. You won't see it in your feed, because the mods in their infinite wisdom have decreed that sufficiently short stories aren't actually stories, so this blog is to let you know that it's available in my

    Help Me, And Win A Free Commission

    Thanks to Chris, I've been thinking about writing style recently. What is a style? Do I have one? Do I have more than one? How can I tell? “Thinking really hard about these questions” doesn't seem like a good way to get answers, since my most common problem as a writer is that I don't communicate the ideas I mean to communicate.

    The Kinship Reports, Part 1 (Or, I Hope You Like Worldbuilding)

    I’m trying something a bit different with my latest story. This one is meant to stand on its own, but it’s also the first installment in a longer series I have planned. If I stick with it, I expect the whole project to be roughly novel-length. Just in case I don’t stick with it, each installment

Unlikely Crossovers With A Vengeance · 8:24pm Nov 13th, 2013

Cloudy Skywriter: Writes adorable stories about Twilight Sparkle writing adorable stories about her friends falling in love with each other.

kkits: In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only PinkieDash.

Sleepless in Gardez: Dick jokes that reveal hidden depths of characterization.

RBDash53: The interviews are poorly planned and unedited, but people love 'em anyway.

device horizon: Worldbuilding, princesses, and… actually, only those two things.

Bad Horse Voice: Instead of writing stories, he just drives to your house and punches you in the gut.

Chris the Unimpressive: Has reviewed every m/m ship ever posted to EqD.

Ponypresent Perfectpants: I don't know; I just really wanted to use that name.

This is, of course, a follow-up to that thing I did, and that other thing. As always, add your own in the comments!

TchernoBob: And suddenly FiMfiction was flooded with AppleDash oneshots.

:twilightsmile: It is one of my lesser regrets that I have not yet found a truly perfect pair of pants.

Author Interviewer

You forgot Benstrazsa, who keeps making websites to spotlight the dregs of the fandom. :V

And I don't even want to think about what short skirts and darfsplosions writes...


> device horizon: Worldbuilding, princesses, and… actually, only those two things.

I helped with the worldbuilding! And the princesses!

Eakits: The actual story of how Equestria was made involves a time-looping Pinkie, a sonic rainboom, and heavy snogging.

theycallmechuck: A Clockwork Apple.

GhostOfQordath: The Incredibly Dense Footnotes Of A Winning Pony.

Badman: much Less Wrong than any of the above.

Jason the Anonymous: Pinkie Pie has an existential crisis after watching Equestria Girls.

AestheticBen: Violent, limb-hacking, grimdark gorefests where nopony can ever die.

Can't handle SSnD? Present plz. :V I think we can all agree Argemdarfer's troll-clop is far more horrifying.

Regidarf: Singlehandedly responsible for the Great Adsense Crisis of 2013.

>Chris the Unimpressive: Has reviewed every m/m ship ever posted to EqD.

Welp, I know what my next review project is. Meanwhile...

Cloud Wanderer D: Writes sweet, disarming, yet surprisingly deep slice-of-life tales about CU and OW.

Amit Perry: Writes Taviscratch in the most pretentious manner possible.

Chengarnick Qordathnack: Griffon banging. So much griffon banging.

Site Blogger

I thought I was being insulted until I figured out what was going on. I need more sleep!

Malladar: A teenage writer who creates tons of Spike shipfics that revolve around Nirvana albums.

Wanderer-asaurus: Essentially acts as Fimfiction's PR guy, also writes a comedy harem about three genderbent changeling sisters.

Knighty Shield: Enjoys roleplaying horse porn.

Kkatbob: The feature box is nothing but post-apocalyptic ponies.

Site Blogger

You know, I'm pretty sure the RCL is the only ponyfic thing with multiple admins that Alex doesn't run.

I tried for so long to get one for Cloud Wander. Not really sure how I missed that.

And why the butts is the name "Chengarnick Qordathnack" so funny?

Andrew Joshua Pen Stroke: Adorable alicorns. Adorable alicorns everywhere.

shortskirtsandbronystories: The most horrifyingly detailed porn you will ever read. Like if Dickens and Lovecraft wrote horse erotica. Also makes non-sequitur-laden photocollages that double as statistical analyses of Rule 34 art.

Saphroneakin: So many loops within loops that time is now a Spirograph.

batsplayer: Heavy purple prose told mostly through dialogue between AJ, Twilight and Dash

PegasusRescueMostEverything: Ditzy Doo helps Planeswalkers hook up.

I approve this message.

...Can't come up with any of my own.

Bad Horse Voice: Instead of writing stories, he just drives to your house and punches you in the gut.

Geez, I can't remember the last time I've laughed that hard.

Very, very seconded.
