If you didn't know by now, let me just confirm it in big capital letters: YES I AM in fact going to Babscon. I will be there this upcoming Friday, and will be staying until part way through Sunday.

Pony Clicker Panel at Equestria LA! · 3:48am Aug 28th, 2015

I'm going to Equestria LA, where I'll be hosting a panel called The Making of Pony Clicker at 11:30 AM on Sunday! I'll be going over the development of Pony Clicker and various amusing facts, as well as previewing a prototype of a new pony game. I'm going to EQLA with Ambris, so when I'm not at a panel, you can probably find me

The LTUE 2018 Report · 10:18pm Feb 16th, 2018

It's time for another LTUE (Life, The Universe, and Everything) report! And this time, not in place of Monday's Being a Better Writer post!

Why, you may ask? Okay, and you may be asking "What's LTUE?" as well. So, in reverse order then.

TW: sexual assault

I need to say something that I have been struggling with since August — something that, even after starting this post, has taken about 48 hours to write out. Something not easy, not pleasant, and this point, not particularly timely. But something very necessary to discuss.

This year at Bronycon, at least three women had their drinks spiked with date-rape drugs.

Galacon Was Fun · 12:41am Aug 2nd, 2018

Well, strictly speaking, Galacon itself was a massive let-down. Only a single writing-related panel during the entire convention and it was awful. It was also apparently part two, when part one happened last year? Bloody stupid.

But that's ok, because I had the good sense to stay away from that nonsense, and hung out with some cool Horse People instead.

Convention Vignettes #2 · 6:37pm Aug 14th, 2018

Day one. I make it to the "Them's Writin' Words" panel five minutes late. From my spot at the back, I can't tell if any of the panelists recognize my battle-jacket. The panel is good, but I'm nervous about what happens after, because it includes two people I've never met in person. One is an Ewan McGregor-looking dude called AShadowOfCygnus, who is arguably my biggest fan. The other is Scribbler, who... is Scribbler.

A Supposedly Fun Thing I’m Totally Doing Again

(with apologies to David Foster Wallace)

Since Aragon (whose blog I’m in direct competition with) felt the need to introduce a disclaimer, I have to do much the same here. Everything I am about to write is completely 100% real. Especially the parts I made up.

Went to Nightmare Nights Dallas this past weekend. This was the last year for the convention. :fluttercry:

Why have all the cons down south shut down? Fiesta Equestria, Derpycon South, and now Nightmare Nights?! Are there more that I don't know about?!

WWWHHHYYY???!!! :raritycry:

...

And on that note, I'm going to try and attend Bronycon next year. Don't know if I'll make it, but I'll try. :unsuresweetie:

Conventions ahoy! · 12:08am Apr 13th, 2017

Good news for people trying to check the rare and beautiful Horizon off of their pony-watching lists! I'm having quite a ponyriffic year, with no less than three brony conventions on the agenda.


First: I'm currently in the whirlwind of trying to get ready for Babscon, which starts in two days. In fact, not only will I be there, but you'll have two entirely unrelated opportunities to get a dose of my work!

TROTCON REMINDER · 1:23am Jul 12th, 2017

Hello all-

I'll be at Trotcon all this weekend, and I'd LOVE to meet up with anyone from FimFiction who is there (just PM me bro). I already have a few takers, but I want to reiterate my offer that I put in an earlier blog post:

If you're my follower on FimFiction and we meet up at Trotcon, I'll buy you a print!

Signal Boost: The Elephant in the Equine Room · 8:13pm Dec 31st, 2017

Hey guys, serious talk here for a minute.

You guys need to read this blog from Horizon about an attempted date-rape that occurred at BronyCon. In the comments, it was revealed that there has also been an attempt at Pacific PonyCon (the individual responsible for the incident at PPC was also at Babscon). It terrifies me that I've been to all of these conventions.
