I'm a shameless neckbeard who has a knack for writing a LOT of smut. I have an Official Patreon page (Patreon.com/TheVClaw), and I also take commissions to help support myself as a freelance writer.

    The June 2020 Patreon Poll Results are in!

    First of all, the results from June's Patreon Commission Story Poll are pretty damn predictable given the numbers. Among the 78 casted votes, the winning story carried a whopping 15 point lead with a total of 28. So without further ado, July's upcoming Patreon-votes story will be:

    I just finished my first self-indulgent fic in a long time!

    As most of you may have noticed, I got a little overly-focused on a new personal story that I just completed on FimFiction the other day: Brushed Away - Canvas' Cutie Mark Mission. I know that I still have a lot on my plate writing-wise with Patreon (which BTW, I got the first 2K words of my next project already written out ;) ), but I'm really confident with my writing abilities

    Brushed Away 4 Updates

    Heya, guys! Ever since the beginning of this month, I've been working hard to complete this celebratory 100th fic as best as I possibly could! This is the first time in a while that I've written something personal instead of just commissioned smut (BTW, I have a commission story I wrote in May incoming soon~), so I've been going tirelessly to churn out chapters nearly every night! At the current

I got some big Brushed Away updates · 4:14pm January 21st

Okay, first of all, I just want to notify my fans that the Brushed Away series is undergoing a lot of progress as of recently! At the current moment, the first fifteen chapters of my first story have been revised and proofread by myself, SirReal, and Double R. Forrest. I know that there's still a lot to go, but I've been trying my hardest to get everything polished out before I move to getting the story published on print. One of my proofreaders actually got up to chapter 40 with their proofreading, so I'm confident that things will continue to move forward at a steady pace.
If anyone is curious to see how the revised chapters look, you can go ahead and read through Brushed Away yourself to see how much things improved after almost 7 years. And just as a small note, I'm including the proper proofreading credits at the end of each chapter that's been revised for FimFiction. Only 15 of the 53 chapters have been officially revised as of now, but that number will climb steadily throughout this year.
(also, please don't get too upset by how badly the quality might change between the revised and unrevised chapters -- over half a decade of writing experience passed since then, so please don't judge)

Okay, now with all that being said, I wanted to share something really cool that that I received courtesy of Mix-Up. In exchange for writing out his story A King's Corruption earlier this month, he agreed to make a personal art piece for me as part of a trade. I asked for him to draw a portrait of Canvas from Brushed Away, since I was really curious about writing something new regarding him. More specifically, I wanted to write a story focused on Canvas following the events of Season 9 (between episodes 25 and 26), in which the artist would venture into a new medium for his creative muse. And what kind of muse would that be?

That's right! I was thinking that by the time the MLP universe reached that future canon from episode 26, Canvas would have full tattoo sleeves up both forelegs (although maybe with a little more color than the artwork above), and would be a full-fledged tattoo artist alongside his traditional works.

To be fair, I kinda developed this idea after watching tons of Ink Master on YouTube, as well as from my personal experiences getting tattooed myself; I currently have four tattoos, and I actually have a fifth scheduled for tomorrow! But at the same time, seeing the "Where are they now?" stuff in the series finale really got me to thinking about how Troy and Canvas would look by that point. I honestly can't imagine Troy looking much different (aside from maybe some greyer feathers and needing to wear reading glasses), but I really liked the idea that Canvas would end up being tatted all over. And in the months spent pondering such an idea, I ended up developing a full-fledged story in my head about how such an origin would come to me.

Will I ever write it? Hopefully so, because it's a project I really want to sink my teeth into. However, due to how busy my schedule has gotten as of recently (not only with my ongoing commissions and Patreon work, but also my unfinished projects I intend to finish before taking anything new), I really need to get some shit done before tackling a new Brushed Away spinoff. But in the mean time, I'm just trying to stay optimistic about how my year will go.

Before I end this post, don't forget to check out Mix-Up's DeviantArt if you want to see what else he's done. He does speed-drawing videos and takes commissions, and I would highly recommend his work: https://www.deviantart.com/amalgamzaku

I know you have pre-readers but i'm doing a re read of the series (old copy so I haven't seen the changes) and I found a few things. Do you mind if I DM you about it?

Well, considering how I'm looking through the series myself, I'm sure that there are plenty of things still in need of revising. Im up to chapter 15 right now, so hopefully the changes made are worth the effort.


I'm not going through it with a fine tooth comb so it's not a big list. I'll probably be finished with Hearts Entwined today so i'll send you something tonight or tomorrow.

Hi, I have a question about the picture.

And what would that question be?

Not to be rude or anything, but didn't Canvas have a earring give it to him the last story?

He does, but that's on his right ear, which isn't really shown from this pic's angle.

My bad, thanks for the reply.
