    New Chapters Coming

    It's been nearly 4 months since I've released a chapter of Hooves of Fate. I found this slow pace both frustrating and disheartening until I looked at the word count of my document, and found it to be well over 18,000.


    Chapters seldom end where I plan for them to end. That's nothing new. But it looks like this block is going to end up divided in two.

    Quiet Couple of Months

    As some of you may have noticed, I've been relatively quiet of late, (and then, suddenly, out of nowhere, today, I sort of exploded with content).

    In the show, "Friendship is Magic", and its tangential media, Equestria is referred to as a "kingdom," despite the plain and obvious fact that it is a princesspality.

    Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - The Old Factory

    I'm rewatching Chapter 4 of Make Your Mark in anticipation of Chapter 5 coming out in only a week and a half.

    Did I just watch a My Little Pony episode about collectivizing a former defense contractor's factory?

Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - Five Years of Magic · 6:42pm Oct 15th, 2015

Every year, on October 10th, I look back at the show’s run - the fandom’s journey - the evolution of the characters we know and love - and think, “What a long, strange trip it’s been.” This year, i ran a little late when it came to writing something up (thanks to a crazy work schedule). The fifth anniversary of the show was several days ago now, and while I can’t quite explain it, it somehow feels like a bigger landmark than the others.

Rather than write up my own version of what a lot of others have already said, I’m going to, in the spirit of friendship, share something someone else wrote - something that touched me personally. - Sprocket

This is what The Skullivan wrote on the Bronies Facebook page:

October 10th, 2010 - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic debuts on the Hub Network for the first time. What happened after that, nobody could have possibly predicted. What should have been, by all rights, just another above average kid’s cartoon blew up into a global phenomenon that shows no sign of ever slowing down.

And now here we are, five years later and it’s still going strong. And we’re still going strong too. Stop and think about how wild that is for a second. Five years of My Little Pony. Five years of brightly colored cartoon horses bringing people together all across the globe. Five years of the most impossibly unlikely fanbase, still as active and passionate as those very first days of its formation. Five years of art, music, writings, animations, comics, crafts, spin-offs, costumes, meet-ups, conventions, and a million other major creative endeavors. Five years of that same simple message - that a little kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty, and laughter really can change the world - still speaking to millions of people all around the world. Five years of friendship. Five years of magic.

Happy 5th Anniversary, every pony. Here’s to another five as good as the last.
