    Pony Life is a regression to Season One

    Maybe it's just because the MLP stop-motion shorts lowered my expectations, but so far I think Pony Life is okay. I wouldn't call it good, but at least it doesn't directly insult older fans the way Thundercats Roar does (or so I've heard). I enjoy Pony Life's animation style enough to recommend watching five minutes of it. Plus, there is actual dialog spoken by the same VA's from FiM, and they

    When Cozy Met Tirek PREVIEW

    When started writing my Cozy Glow origin story (which went through two title changes) for the Depth in Innocence contest, the deadline was so distant that it kept slipping my mind. On Mother's Day, I checked the contest rules to see how much time I had left, and noticed that the deadline to sign up for the

    What's the deal with Cozy in Marks for Effort?

    Halfway through writing my fanfic that focuses on Cozy Glow's backstory, I re-watched “Marks for Effort” to get a better feel for the character. This was my first time seeing the episode after watching everything that came afterward, and it didn't help me understand the character any better than I had before. Viewed in this new context, Cozy's characterization in this episode seems like it

    Update in the Crazy Times

    In the past few days I've had an increase of views, to the point where I wondered if one of the site admins had given me a plug. Apparently people just have more time to catch up on their Read It Later lists. So thanks to those of you who read my fanfics.

    My Baby Pony

    I 've known about the stop motion shorts for a few weeks, and I finally watched one a couple of days ago to see how bad it was (specifically, it was “Cake Off”). And . . . Yeah, it was bad, folks. It wasn't even a preschool show. This was a show for babies. There was just giggling, laughing, crying, and no dialog. The short technically had a plot, but it was very simple and without substance.

Update in the Crazy Times · 11:03am April 20th

In the past few days I've had an increase of views, to the point where I wondered if one of the site admins had given me a plug. Apparently people just have more time to catch up on their Read It Later lists. So thanks to those of you who read my fanfics.

As for me, I'm actually doing relatively well during this pandemic. My company is considered essential because we process health insurance, so I'm going to work every weekday. I just have a general anxiety about the state of the world and about my family, but I'm learning to deal with it. And by “deal with it” I mostly mean cutting back on reading news updates, but hey, whatever works.

And I'm still writing fanfiction, although I don't have a ton of time to write. Currently I'm working on a story that focuses on Cozy Glow. The working title is “A Cozy Redemption,” except so far it's just “A Cozy Backstory,” which doesn't have the same ring. I haven't seen many fanfics that discuss Cozy's origins, so hopefully this will feel fresh. The good thing about this fanfic is that unlike my previous two stories, I won't have to rush to meet a contest deadline, so the quality should be better.

Glad to hear from you. Looking forward to seeing what you do with Cozy. She's almost Joker-like in her blank slate of a past.
