EQLA: the not-so-great part (and pictures!) · 7:32am Sep 11th, 2015

My previous post mentioned some of the epic parts of EQLA. And there really were some. Bonnie Zacherle and Lauren Faust will never meet again for the very first time. That's a historic moment in the fandom, right there. However, since my colleague Mr. Melnipony has mentioned it, and since I was going to

DOOOOOOM. And a decision. · 12:13pm August 5th

At lack of anything better to do with my lazy Saturday afternoon, I found myself watching the pony cartoon show on Netflix. "The Art of the Dress," to be specific-- it's actually really, really interesting to compare the animation & voice work of the early seasons to the later ones. Things just seem to skew a bit younger-- or maybe the cast just haven't mastered their roles yet? It's worth going back to, I will say.

UK PonyCon still needs volunteers! · 4:33pm August 28th

UK PonyCon is the largest MLP convention in Britain, and this year it's on 13-14 October in Nottingham. One thing cons always need is help, and that goes beyond just the committee. Volunteers are always welcome -- in fact, without sufficient volunteers, some events simply can't happen. Even if you can only spare a few hours, that's still valuable! You'll generally need to be 18 or over and to have bought a convention ticket. (For the benefit of overseas

Everfree Northwest 2018 · 4:15pm May 20th

I'm attending the con. I should probably have written something before today since it's the last day, but c'est la vie. As it is my first pony con (have attended several anime cons in the past), I'm not sure how it compares to others. I can say that the strong writing component seems very pronounced to me and I've had to wonderful opportunity meet some authors I admire. Authors I can think of off the top of my head would be Titanium Dragon, Albinocorn, Oroboro, Monochromatic, Novel-Idea, and

UK PonyCon 2018, Friday: Muffins with Muffins · 6:13pm October 19th

These things are going up first on Louder Yay, but I thought I might as well copy them over here over the next few days. This will be a personal account rather than a proper report, so expect a lot of rambliness.

So ... Everfree Northwest? · 3:59pm February 27th

One of the things I had vaguely at the back of my head for 2018 was to try out a con. Or, well, a PONY con, more specifically.

I mean, I've been to various gaming/other nerdery conventions before, but this would be the first time I'd admit to my magic horse cartoon fanfiction career in public. And yes, the term "closeted" comes to mind. I may go in disguise of some sort. Shut up. I'll be like the Thomas Pynchon of FiMFiction.

Fiesta Equestria Meet-up · 5:14am Jun 27th, 2015

I am currently attending the Fiesta Equestria convention in Houston. If anyone wants to meet up with me but are having trouble finding me due to lack of custom usernames on the attendee tags, be on the lookout for a guy in a Luna or Nightmare Moon t-shirt carrying this satchel.

Give and Take · 11:12am Jan 14th, 2017

Bit of a good news/bad news situation. The bad news, such as it is, is that I've finally cleared through the last obstacle keeping me from actually doing my job. The accounts have been made, the permissions have been given, the SSL keys are in the SSL locks, and now I have no excuse when it comes to actually getting work done. (It says something that we finalized the process on Friday the 13th, doesn't it?) As such, my available Fimfic time will be dropping drastically as I start bug hunting in

Vren55 at Bronycan 2016 · 3:02pm Aug 3rd, 2016

Hey, story fans, I'm heading to Bronycan again this year and speaking at not one, not two, but THREE 1 hour panels! Everybody in Vancouver, Canada, watchout, here I come on August 19-21 at the Richmond Airport Executive Hotel. I've figured out my schedule using Sched.org so you can come and chat with me whenever about the Alternia-tive Verse, about writing, or anything in general!

Panels I'll be speaking at (all led/moderated by the awesome GaryOak)

UK anime convention · 10:33am May 29th, 2017

I know this is a little off topic, so I won't make a habit of it.

Some friends of mine are running an anime convention in November. They're all people who've been going to anime conventions for years and years, and wanted to give something back.

BABSCon checklist · 3:20pm Apr 22nd, 2016

In preparation for my one day at BABSCon tomorrow...

1. Pack son's diaper bag.
2. Pack an extra set of clothes for me, hubby, and son.
3. Look at map to hotel and convention.
4. Charge the super expensive camera I'm borrowing from big brother.
5. Get snacks and drinks for the trip.
6. Continue to resist buying random stuff so that I have more spending money at the con.

@ BABSCon 2016 - NEIGHhEM concert · 4:38am Apr 24th, 2016

Taps is playing. Damn good set. Liked Garnika and Psycosis. Fuck I'm old though. Not 19 anymore. Got tired after just an hour. Niece is having fun. She had a picture with Garnika and an autograph. (I think she has a star crush on him, lol)

Everfree NW · 12:35pm May 13th, 2016

I realized this morning as I was getting ready for my flight that I never made the announcement here.

As I believe I've said in previous blog posts, I'll be attending Everfree NW this year, continuing the tradition as it were. I'm going to be appearing at several of the panels. Here's my full schedule of where you can find me at different times:

- Friday, 11:30 - 12:30
--- Writing Processes, Tips, and Tricks
- Friday, 12:45 - 1:45
--- Fanfiction Advice and Mixer
- Friday, 5:00 - 6:30

UK PonyCon 2017 · 4:22pm Oct 23rd, 2017

Got home a couple of hours ago. Had a fantastic time. Proof that a great convention doesn't have to have a huge attendance or big-name guests. This was my sixth. It was also the best. Proper report coming in due course.

Convention Vignettes #1 · 6:26pm August 5th

This is a new experiment. It is also a Canadian attempting humour, so it will either be absolutely hilarious or utterly cringey.

Be warned: My memory may have modified itself to be more dramatic. Those who were there, feel free to PM me any needed corrections.

Some names have been redacted, just in case.

More to come later in the month.
