    Royal Canterlot Library Feature and Interview

    So the noble curators of the Royal Canterlot Library decided they wanted to feature my story 'What is Left'. It comes with a written interview, too. Quite the honor. You can read my interview here: https://royalcanterlotlibrary.net/2018/03/09/onionpies-what-is-left/

    Working On Non-Pony Stuff Right Now

    Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I've been focusing on original writing projects so far this year. Writing is my greatest passion, and I want to make a career out of it. Sadly, you don't make any horsebucks from writing horsefics, so I'll have to look elsewhere for writing-related income. Not that I'm going to stop writing pony stuff forever; I have a nice home here on Fimfiction and this is

    Still Alive, Still Working: A Quick Update

    I'm currently working on two ~7k word stories. One is in its fourth draft, the other in its fifth draft. Both of them have been driving me nuts. I'm trying really hard to make them not suck. Sorry it's been taking so long to get out a new story for you guys. But hey, on the bright side, this time you may get two OnionPie stories at the same time. Hurray.

Teaser for an upcoming story · 4:35am Mar 1st, 2016

February was okay. I wrote every single day. Little over 16,000 words total. Less than I'd hoped, but I'm glad I'm staying reasonably productive. I'll do better in March, I'm sure.

Here is a teaser for a short story I've been working on. It isn't finished yet, but it's getting there. I can't say when it'll be done and published, but I'm committed to see it through to the end and post it. Hopefully it'll catch your interest.

With every step Twilight Sparkle took, the desert stretched on just a little farther and the merciless sun shone a little hotter. The dry earth cracked and puffed dust as the princess lumbered across it. One more step, she told herself. One more step. One more...

“You’re going to die here,” her brother said.

She gritted her teeth and stared forward like she could will the horizon to give her something other than more sand and rock. Her chest muscles still burned from her long flight. She was so tired she could barely walk, let alone take to the air again.

“Give up.” His voice was so calm.

Twilight swallowed empty spit. Her body ached and her mind swam, but she couldn’t stop; if she didn’t deliver the peace offer, the southerners would leave Equestria a bloodsoaked wasteland.

“They won’t listen to you,” her brother said.

Twilight spun toward him. “Shut up!”

But there was no one there, just rocks and dry shrub and her hoofprints trailing far across the sand.

“You’re not real,” she breathed. “You’re dead.”

No one answered.

Chest aching, she turned and continued southward. Dehydration was playing tricks on her mind, that was all. All that mattered was finding the southern king and ending the war.

You definitely have my attention!

I am very excitebike for this upcoming story. Would this story have anything to do with the previously mentioned? (Mostly referring to your "Do you prefer 1st or 3rd person?" blogpost.) Regardless, keep up the writing.

“You’re not real,” she breathed. “You’re dead.”

Now that's a hook!

Interesting that many of your recent stories seem to feature dysfunctional sibling relationships.

No, this is a different project than the 1st vs 3rd person one. It's my juggling of multiple projects like this that results in lots of words written but few finished stories. I'm gonna try my best to keep focused on this story until it's done. It's a short story, most likely under 7000 words long.

I have a special place in my heart for stories about broken families. There's a tragic beauty in the way once-close individuals can grow close again.
