    Upcoming Fic: Firebird

    Just wanted to offer a little status update and say that all of my pony energy of late has been going into a fic about a very underappreciated pony:

    There's a good chance you've seen this by now, but if you haven't, give horizon's blog about an experience at BronyCon a read, because this is not and will never be okay.

    Thanks, happy New Year, etc.

    Reading of "Home" by Scribbler!

Oh, balls. We should have gotten another twenty years of books out of that man. Screw you, Alzheimer's.

Condolences to all the lives he's touched along the way who now feel his passing.

F*ck! Seriously? :pinkiegasp:
Man, how I loved the Discworld series... :fluttercry: I guess I still have some unread tomes, better get right to it, in memory of a brilliant writer.

Yeah, :pinkiesad2: indeed.

From book_burner's blog post:

Pratchett was lucky enough to sustain very little cognitive embuggerance: he only had to cancel one convention appearance in 2014, and he died as himself, knowing who he is and where he was. He was lucky.

The worst part is, book_burner isn't wrong. He was lucky. And that's the worst part. Alzheimer's makes it so that dying at the age of 66 can be considered lucky. Screw everything about Alzheimer's.
