The arguments I have within my own head are legendary.

    What if Cozy Glow is an Adult?

    Just on a headcanon roll lately. But yeah, what if Cozy Glow, the manipulative ponified Darla Dimple, is actually an adult pony with some sort of dwarfism? This explains some of her characterization and even fills in some plot holes in her story.

    The Four Goth Ponies

    Had a shower thought yesterday that the four "goth" ponies we see in the main show represent four aspects of goth culture. Allow me to explain.

    Pillar Relationship Headcanon

    Was thinking of the Pillars of Equestria and their inter-personal relationships. This is all just my personal headcanon and theories, don't take it too seriously.

    New Story

    Published the first chapter of a new story today. Admittedly, it is quite a bit different than a typical story. It is actually a novelization of sorts of an on-going roleplay I have been involved in for the last three years. If you enjoy mature fics which feature a dom/sub dynamic, you may find it to your liking.

    Long Overdue Update

    It was recently brought to my attention by one PinkiePieFox that I have gone over a year (a bit over 14 months) without posting any kind of update. I apologize for this, it has not been at the forefront of my mind.

    Most of this update centers around my most-asked question: Art, are you still working on "Propositions".

    To give the shortest possible answer: No.

...As Long As I Have My Alone Time. · 10:55pm Feb 3rd, 2016

So I'm sure by now, a lot of you have seen the latest animation from AnimatedJames, entitled "Creative Types".

If you haven't, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

So you might wonder why I am writing a blog about it. Well, in the spirit of the animation, and the song which accompanies it, I decided to put in my two cents.

Naturally, as far as the archetypes of the video are concerned, I am quite obviously the writer. Now, of course, I get views, likes, and comments, within minutes of publishing anything on here, I always have. That being said, I have the nearly the same reaction anytime some comments positively on my work. For those are the moments when it is all worth it. All the time spent and brain power used. Whenever a person says that they liked what I wrote, or even liked just a particular part, it makes me smile. One of the few things that do. The only thing that would increase both my smile and make me pretty much the gender-bent version of the writer (glasses and all) would be if I had a significant other who would go out of their way to praise me, whether I really deserved it or not. Of course, I understand that that is the highest level of wishful thinking.

I also want to talk about the song. Most creative people enjoy time alone. Not to get psychological, but this really goes with a person's overall being. Creative people (and other right-brained people) usually prefer solitude over being around lots of people. To put this in pony characterization terms, Twilight, Fluttershy, and Rarity are right-brained; Rainbow, Pinkie, and AJ are left-brained.

In human society, however, the preference of being alone is usually questioned and said to be negative. I assume some of you have been told to "go out and make some friends" or asked "why are you inside on such a nice day?" It is quite sad, as the world actually needs the creative among us to thrive and be nurtured as much as possible. For creative people, they usually do their best work within the confines of themselves. For me, I often have something creative going on in my head, and when I'm lucky that turns into a physical manifestation (i.e. writing something).

For creative minds, our brain is the most important organ. And sometimes, when those people ask us why we spend so much time alone, or seemingly within our own little worlds, they simply must understand that "we'll be fine, as long as we have our alone time."
