    Had a weird dream where Candy Mare was meticulously making these caramel fudge cookies, just drizzling layer after layer of caramel and fudge and for some reason it was low key the most sinister thing in the world. Like, it went beyond merely foreboding and was outright harrowing. There were these solid black things crowded around her just giggling away as she made these baleful no-bake cookies.

    The official end of Spooky Time and the start of Xmas Time in the U.S. (Yes, there have been 'holiday' decorations up since before Halloween, shhhh.)

    As everyone gathers together to slather gravy on burnt bird meat, I can't help but giggle manically about things that are yet to come.

    The Curse of the Candy Cult

    Been long enough since this was published I thought I'd talk about this story now. For those who haven't read it yet or who are still in the process of reading, there will be spoilers, so if that's something you care about just come back and read this blog post later if you are interested.

    That feel when somebody blocks you because they were misrepresenting your work as a plagiarization of another work and they claimed you were trying to 'pick a fight' when all you were doing was pointing out how neither works have anything in common beyond a single characters name, and even that only partially.

    The Candy Mare Challenge

    I have no idea how widespread this is, but apparently some kids are daring each other to stand in front of a mirror and say 'Candy Mare' five times in the dark.

    Apparently if you do she shows up and eats you.

    First off, if you aren't in your teens you probably shouldn't know what the Candy Mare is.

    But this is too fricken adorable!

Broken: Life (Incomplete) · 1:48pm Mar 8th, 2018

As those of you have been with me for awhile will know I briefly restarted the Broken series some time ago with ‘Broken: Love’, a story that focused on Starlight as the hero and Princess Cadance and an ensourcelled Crystal Empire as a villains.

Truthfully there was always going to be more to that story and ‘Broken: Life’ was going to be the next ‘chapter’ so to speak. I started writing it before I was even finished writing ‘Broken: Love’. Unfortunately I ended up being distracted by other projects and the story remains unfinished.

Worse, I’ve left it in that state long enough that some of the story doesn’t hold up anymore, particularly the scenes where Starlight meets Princess Ember for the first time and a lot of the story to do with Spike still having some remnant of his Dragon Lord status.

It’s still a fun story and I especilally love how the characters turned out, but I’m unfortunately at the point where I’m not sure if I can finish the story or not.

Even the cover-art is unfinished and I commissioned that close to two years ago now. (Not that this really has any effect on my writing, I just think it’s funny)

So here is ‘Broken: Life’, a Broken story about Spike’s origins and place in the world and how his birthright was taken from him. It would have dwelled on the idea of what is better, dwelling on a life that might have been but is now lost, or living the life that you have with the friends that you love but knowing it’s all a sham.

It would have also introduced the villain for the next story, ‘Broken: Death’... but if I can’t finish this story I’m not sure I can bring myself to start the next.
