Ideas For Puddinghead · 4:57pm Mar 21st, 2019

Well, my work's going well so just so I have some ideas for later;

Where do I go with Puddinghead and Smart Cookie?

I mean, I used the rise of Emperor Augustus for Hurricane and Elizabeth I for Platinum but I've never been able to find a figure from history to base Platinum on.

I mean, an insane elected authority figure?
Who do I base her on?
And don't make any Trump jokes. It's too easy.

Any ideas for how to conclude her story? Please let me know.

Canterlot... (head canon) · 5:17am Jun 14th, 2017

Canterlot...

Canterlot...

It's only a drawing...

Ok, I took the time to read about it on MLP Wikia, and learned why its flat ground. Kinda weird how its on a mountain, on a flat piece of ground on a mountain, but whatever.

In Defense of Gamefreak · 7:03pm February 24th

Okay, yeah, I was sorta displeased with how Sword and Shield turned out, but let's be fair here, I get the feeling the game was rushed, and god knows what else went on in the development cycle we're not party to. Yeah, the game is a bit too thin in some aspects, but Gamefreak in the past has listened to critiques.

For example, let me go on a short list of problems addressed in the past. (Huge thanks to Tarbtano for inspiring this little list)

Three Stories? How Preposterous · 6:56pm Mar 6th, 2016

So, yeah, now I'm running three stories simultaneously.

How am I going to deal with this workload, you ask?

Answer is, I'm not.

Not well, anyhow. Updates will come as they wish, though not to the point where I'm inactive for months at a time. I don't do that.

Thing is, one more story and I'll be on equal terms with the amount of non-oneshots I've written for a variety of fandoms on Fanfiction.net.

Empty Equestria: the Mystery of the Pre-Classical Collapse · 8:13am Nov 9th, 2015

This was written a while ago, elsewhere, but I was inspired to dig it up and post it here by Carabas's blog post about Diamond Dogs in his Palaververse.

History Repeats: Retrospective · 2:13am Apr 24th, 2017

Having passed the fourth anniversary of first posting one of my favourite works recently and having been asked about a sequel, I took the time to look back at History Repeats and explore my old notes and files and unused concepts.

Consider what follows the break to be potentially spoileriffic, and also to be a Blu-Ray Director's Commentary on some of the hidden jokes and references and deleted bits and pieces that didn't make the cut...

History of Equestria · 9:50pm Aug 28th, 2017

So, I got the idea to write something about before the unification of the tribes. And then I just built off of what I wrote until I had 1k words. I meant this to be a published story, but I don't think it's good enough for that.

Also, two notes. A) It's set in the future. B) It is in reverse chronological order.

Get it after the break:

I want to write a 'ponies are Napoleonic infantry' story so bad now. Like Sharpe's Rifles but with friendship.

Art and Genocide: The Führer who Loved Only Buildings · 2:25am Apr 13th, 2017

In this blog post, I want to attack the idea that art (including fiction) and religion are inherently good or noble.  I don’t think they’re inherently bad or evil, but I’d like to try thinking about them in evolutionary terms.

I also want to attack the idea that the concepts of racism, greed, impiety, or evil have explanatory power, though that’s only a secondary focus.

A bit of history on where Pony-Me was originally planned to go, and how it evolved over time. · 8:49am Dec 23rd, 2018

So. It's 12:41 AM, and I'm not tired at all right now. I've got some soft orchestral music looping in the background, and I already wrote my usual pile of horsewords into Pony-Me's in-progress chapter. Heck, I even got a few more unread chapters knocked off my tracking list. So what now?

Well, about Pony-Me. It's got quite a few versions of its narrative.

Let's turn back time a bit, shall we?

The Lovecraft Influence · 6:10am Nov 19th, 2018

So it's no question that Lovecraft's unique brand of horror has inspired a lot of artist over the years. From stories to artwork to games and even music. His influence is vast and expansive almost as much as the universe in his stories is mysterious and cruel. I mostly wanted to go over my oldest memory of the first time I had been introduced to Lovecraft themes. I was probably about ten, or so, and we went down to the little Blockbuster which was only about a block away from my house. I got

The Imperial Derechian Guard Corps and the Crystal Pegasi · 5:25am Jan 5th, 2017

In the year 1436 BTH, some 1936 years before Twilight Sparkle rescued Princess Luna from her Nightmare, and three decades before the Migration of the Three Tribes had even begun, there was a regiment of Pegasus mercenaries in service to the Crystal Republic as foederati (allied auxiliary troops under their own leader and laws). This was in the Twilight of the Old Republic, which was to harden into Empire under the impact of the catastrophic climate change brought by the Windigoes.

HITALTCAASHR part 3.2: Teaching English: 1987-1990 · 1:03am May 8th, 2017

This post is an attempt to fill in a bit of the gap in the history of the Literary Left between 1970 and now, by summarizing trends in (Lloyd-Jones & Lunsford 1989, Davis & Mirabella 1990, Elbow 1990, Leitch 2010, Harbach 2014). It's the last in its "series" of grumpy-old-man
