Plot Bunny Theater: Villains of a Different Tribe · 9:36pm Dec 10th, 2019

We've had villainous alicorns and unicorns, but no actual Pegasi or Earth Pony villains. Not on the level of Nightmare Moon or Sombra. Sure there was Cozy Glow but still!

Now granted, the unicorn is the mage class and thus more prone to tapping into primeval forces of doom or corruption, but damnit! There should be some evil Pegasi and Earth Ponies! So let's think up some villains!

I said it once before, but... · 5:22am Aug 12th, 2015

After reading a ton of displaced fanfics I have decided to eventually try my hand at it. It will take a while, and research needs to be done... but I really want to write this one.

Ominous hints and perhaps a bit of insecurity. · 4:50pm Feb 1st, 2017

I've been thinking a lot lately about my fic and just how I want it to proceed. I may have had a brief moment of panic when I thought that the way I wanted my story to go would make it less a Fallout: Equestria story and more... something else. I even went as far as writing Kkat for her input (no response yet, but she is very popular and likely gets A LOT of PMs). I think I'm mostly over it. I've tied my elements together in a decent fashion without it being too deus ex machina (or, simply

Plot Bunny Theater: Equestria: Civil War · 5:00pm January 18th

Chrysalis seeks redemption. Twilight Sparkle is willing to help her, but Shining and Cadence are against it. And as it turns out, Chrysalis is using this proximity to manipulate everypony involved. But they don't find this out until Shining and Twilight are taking up arms against one another in actual civil war. The sad thing is, she's not putting thoughts into ponies' heads: She's just enhancing what ponies keep hidden inside themselves. And even after defeating her, there's still a lot of

Plot Bunny Theater: Help Wanted. Two Vacancies... · 6:29am January 28th

If you're a RWBY fan, you'll know that the lore is that there were two creator Gods, the Brother Gods. The Brother Gods have basically abandoned Remnant due to stupid crap I won't bore you with. So there are two spots wide open for better deities. But given Remnant's history with gods, perhaps what they need... Are Princesses.

Plot Bunny Theater: Cutie Mark Crusader Necromancers YAYYYYY · 5:42am May 1st

The Cutie Mark Crusaders got their hooves on a book of necromancy, and try to use it to raise Applebloom's pet mouse from the dead.
Applebloom: "Aw shucks... This stupid spell ain't workin' at all!"
As the rest of the Ponyville Graveyard rises from the grave
Applebloom: "Mister Squeakers ain't ever comin' back!"
Bright Mac: "Howdy Applebloom!"
Pear Butter: "Howdy little one!"
Applebloom: "... Who are you? Why do you smell so bad?"
"Ya don recognize your own parents?"

Plot Bunny Theater: S.M.I.L.E · 8:24pm August 20th

The agency known as S.M.I.L.E has been in existence in secret for a thousand years. Helping to fight, detain and contain entities and objects that would destroy Ponykind. It's agents are sworn to secrecy to preserve the peace of Equestria and many have paid the ultimate price in service to Harmony.

That said, S.M.I.L.E does far more than merely contain. They also study, observe, experiment and make hard decisions.

And die in the dark so that ponies can live in the light.

Being a Better Writer: Setting Up a Reveal · 8:32pm August 17th

Hello readers! Welcome back!

First, before we get down to today’s post, a bit of warning and disclaimer: I’m going to try and keep it a bit shorter today. The reason why is that I had a slight accident over the weekend which involved me tumbling, in most embarrassing fashion, over a set of handlebars.

A Tool for Authors: DO IT WRONG ON PURPOSE! · 8:23am Jul 24th, 2015

A bold title, yes, but not an untrue one.

You see, I’ve been working on a number of writing projects and one of them is an actual book to be published. Because of this I’ve been doing a number of things that are new to me and I came to a realization; I can research how to write all I want, and I can practice trying to be the best I can, but you learn stuff differently when, on purpose, you do something wrong.

This will have SPOILERS for my story's future plot, after the forest escape from Steel Shard Academy, so if you don't want them, steer clear Spartans. Otherwise, read on.

Profiling and Update · 7:41am Jul 11th, 2017

Any of you who watch cop shows probably know what Profiling is. For those who don't, it's when you logically deduce the type of person someone is through their actions, memorabilia, and a fair amount of educated guess-work. Police generally use it to determine how a particularly elusive criminal will act next.

Story Review 1: The Changeling Trials · 6:46am Sep 22nd, 2017

I like to read. Specifically, I like to read stories that are well done and draws me in.

Some of you may know that once or twice I’ve given a review on some stories. I like doing this, as I like not only thanking the authors for making the story but helping to point out areas where they could improve.

Plot Bunny Theater: Sibling Rivalries · 3:27pm January 14th

As a tweak to the canon, it turns out that Celestia and Luna were not the only alicorns... They're just the only ones who didn't go insane or evil. They had eight siblings, mares and stallions, who were all alicorns but fell apart when faced with the challenges of their powers or life in general. Luna and Celestia sealed them up before they could do any real harm and gradually they were forgotten...

Plot Bunny Theater: The Grogarites Part 2 · 3:32am January 6th

I decided to write up the full legend:

Grogar had three sons, whom he named Takam, Heidrun, and Yang (each after a goat deity). He gifted them each a bit of his power and gave them responsibility over each tribe of Ponies. But eventually, each fell in love with a mare of each tribe, married her, and had children.
