I spend way too much time writing about writing, and way too little time actually writing.

    For the redditors among you: (Re)introducing /r/CircleClop

    Every self-respecting subreddit needs a circlejerk spinoff, and /r/mylittlepony is no exception. Since the various MLP circlejerk subreddits were all dead as a doornail, I decided to try and revive the one with the best name: /r/CircleClop.

    Have some Bach

    In the spirit of Easter (Easter Monday still counts as part of the Easter weekend, dammit!) I thought I'd post a bit of St Matthew Passion.

    A Very American Season Première

    The long-awaited Season 5 première was very interesting for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was that it clearly showed just how deeply My Little Pony is rooted in American values.

You know you've been on Fimfiction too long when... · 10:44pm Dec 5th, 2014

• You type out the codes for ponymotes instead of selecting them from the dropdown menu
• You constantly bitch about EQD, but you know in your heart you'd be jumping for joy if they ever accepted one of your stories
• You constantly bitch about the feature box and the Popular Stories column, but you read stories you've seen there all the time
• You don't even notice the clopfics in the feature box anymore
• The spelling of the word 'obsolescence' confuses you
• You have an intuitive grasp of what 'Lavender Unicorn Syndrome' means
• Your intuitive grasp somehow differs from everyone else's intuitive grasps, leading to heated arguments
• You've developed an elaborate moral philosophy around downvoting (starting with 'at least leave a comment')
• You don't see anything strange about reading hundreds of thousands of words – the equivalent of several long novels – in three days
• You don't remember the last time your Read Later list was empty
• You're first notified of the release of a new film or game by the flurry of pony crossover fics accompanying it
• You don't see fanfiction as a way to kill time between MLP seasons – you see new episodes as annoying distractions from fanfiction
• While watching a new episode, you can immediately predict which moments are going to spawn a ton of one-shots

Are... are you me?

The struggle is real.

• You don't remember the last time your Read Later list was empty

I will never be able to say empty and read later together in a sentence ever again, unless sarcastically. :raritycry:

Truer words have never been typed.

Got one more:
You realize how long you've been a site member, and you die a little inside.

Seriously, I've been here a whole year and a half? What am I doing with my life?

I can relate to this far more than is healthy. :twilightoops:
