    Marziponies!

    I love marzipan.  This Christmas, my older sister brought me back some marzipan from Hungary, where she was teaching a course on... um, something.  I can't keep her courses straight because she teaches college courses on speech pathology, linguistics, neuroscience, the history of silent movies, and anime.  Often in exotic foreign cities like Budapest, Istanbul, or Vienna (although for some reason

    The Last Jedi (no spoilers)

    As resident curmudgeon, it's my duty to watch every eagerly-anticipated sequel to or remake of something made in the 1980s and tell you exactly why it sucks.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi has an audience rating of 56% on Rotten Tomatoes. That's tied with Phantom Menace for the lowest rating out of the entire franchise.

reddit on Twenty Minutes now · 1:54am January 3rd

Amethyst Wind organized a Fallout: Equestria book club on reddit. Today they're discussing my story "Twenty Minutes". Amethyst Wind asked me to answer some questions about it:

  • What inspired you to write Twenty Minutes? How did it come about?
  • Literature inspirations in general? Books/authors/articles/podcasts/etc
  • What drew you to Fallout: Equestriain the first place?
  • What other works do you have, if any, and of which are you most proud?
  • Future plans for creative efforts?

My answers are posted here: Fallout: Equestria bookclub on Twenty Minutes

(I wrote "they" and "discussing", but so far there's only one other comment.)

I didn't realize your Cadance story was a Fallout: Equestria tale (but as usual, I need to read it).

I was interested in reading Fallout: Equestria until I heard it was basically a scene-for-scene recreation of Fallout with ponies. I'm not sure whether that's a good reason to be dissuaded from a work.

4765948 It's not a Cadence story; I just used some shopped gifs of Cadence in a blog post to taunt Skywriter.

(Taunting Skywriter is ineffective.)

Fallout: Equestria may use the same locations and factions as Fallout 2, but it couldn't be a reenactment of a game. I wrote a blog post about it: Why Fallout: Equestria is Worth Reading Even if you Hate it

Congrats on the highlight!

Anne Jamison teaches it every year at Princeton.

Wait, what. I thought that was only for one time. It's every year? Jeez. That's awesome man.

And what's all this "needs a total rewrite" nonsense? Excuses.

Does this new chess story happen to involve Celestia? :raritystarry:
