Editorial - Marketability of Characters · 9:58pm Jul 20th, 2015

It's been a while since I did one of these. I was going to do a mid-season review on season 5, but I think this is a more interesting topic. Besides, there's already a ton of analysis on episodes, I doubt you all care enough to hear one more jackass tell you what they did and didn't like.

Why Bother Editorial: The Characterization of Luxure and the theme of Existential Nihlism + Art request · 12:36am Dec 1st, 2016

I'd like to go into some analysis regarding the way I write Luxure in "Why Bother?" and basically what her character means. On the surface it could be easy to writer her off ass "a total bitch that magically manipulated ponies into fighting for her that just happens to have reality-breaking powers." That's certainly a part of her that we've seen but there's also that one thing she hates going into detail about, but for the most part has no choice. The fact that she is self-aware of her place in

Op-Ed: Why Do We Like Something? · 7:29pm Aug 24th, 2015

Hey everyone, welcome back after a most interesting weekend! Well, maybe it was an interesting weekend for you, I certainly can't speak for all of you. Certainly it was an interesting weekend for those in Spokane, Washington, though, as they had to decide which the greater fire was: The massive, multi-acre wildfires burning up the forest? Or the conflagration downtown that was the Hugo Awards burning themselves to the ground to keep fiction ideologically pure?

Help! My Heart is Full of Pony - Circles · 4:36am Oct 9th, 2017

Her passion is drawing circles.  Her cutie mark is in writing haikus.  These things are actually connected!

Kettle Corn's circles resemble ensō, a form of Zen Buddhist calligraphy in Japan. Haiku is a form of poetry that originated with Buddhist monks in Japan.

Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - Virtue · 2:46pm Feb 28th, 2018

I was taking an Internet quiz a few minutes ago, and one of the questions leapt out at me, and lead me to a pony-related epiphany. (I hope you’ll bear with me as I explain how I got there).

The quiz asked:

Have I mentioned how much I hate Kink-Shaming? · 1:01am Nov 29th, 2017

If you guys remember a while back, I made a blog post talking about why judging people's kinks and fetishes isn't fucking cool. And I gotta say, I'm glad it got so much positive feedback and discussion in response to it. However, despite venting out my thoughts on the matter, it still pisses me off to no end when people keep doing it.

David Bowie (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016) · 8:16am Jan 11th, 2016

I've had many influences in my writing, my music, and my attitude. I sometimes point towards Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Metallica, or even Prince. But above all, there was David Bowie, aka Ziggy Stardust, aka The Thin White Duke, aka my personal hero/role model. He wasn't who I wanted to be like when I grew up. He was who I wanted to be. If there was one musician I could talk to in my entire life, it would have been him. He has had that big of an effect on me.

You Had Me, Then You Lost Me: Mente Materia · 1:56am Aug 25th, 2015

It's never a pleasent thing when a fanfic you like turns sour.

Not just because that head space where something you liked gets replaced with negative thoughts, but also because there's a little bit of disappointment that said fic isn't living up to how awesome it can be. Naturally, this is a subjective thing. Someone's awesome is someone else's wasted potential and vice versa.

So, with that in mind, Mente Materia.

Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - Birthdays · 4:51pm Mar 10th, 2016

Birthdays are weird. When you're a child, you feel like you've leveled up – actually achieved something. Why shouldn't you? Age is a huge part of a kid's identity after all. Furthermore, if everything lines up just right, others acknowledge that achievement too. Parties at school. Gifts. Wishes. You feel special.

Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - An Awkward Moment · 8:44am Jan 31st, 2018

I had to run a midnight errand just now, so I threw on my unicorn hoodie and headed down the block to my local convenience store / bodega.  When I got there, the guy ahead of me on line looked at me funny.  Obviously, he was unaccustomed to interacting with unicorns.

Why kinkshaming isn't right. AKA, I did my first private commission this weekend. · 4:13am Aug 14th, 2017

Two days ago, I was asked by one of my fans (who wishes to remain anonymous) to write a story for them. And since the story idea itself involved a rather niche interest (something I don't think even has a group on this website) involving a pairing I mentioned in a couple of my previous stories, I was a little shocked to even get it requested, let alone for money. But when I read the first message sent by them asking about, it was clear that the person understood how unusual it was; in

My Love/Hate Relationship with Relationship Stories · 1:18pm Nov 20th, 2014

So.

I'm a bit of a romantic. Always have been. I love that old, clichéd story of boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl live happily ever after.

It's the optimistic part of me. I like when two people worm their way into each other's hearts and push past all the crap, hurt, and ugliness in the world around them to stay together and build something truly special. It's really cool watching the progression from strangers, to acquaintances, to friends, to family.

For What It's Worth · 2:21am Jun 14th, 2015

The 100th episode was glorious. It was basically pure unadulterated fun, and that was more or less the entire point. It was a celebration of the fandom and the show and the fact that everyone loves these characters. I'm hearing a lot of reports of the old phantom of "panda rings" and people complaining it lacked plot and I just kind of wonder why they care. It was a montage of brilliant moments, funny characters, and a love letter written not just to fans but THIS fandom. What we do, who we

For five whole seasons, My Little Pony has consistently celebrated the small things. It's a subject I have written about rather extensively in other articles, but suffice it to simply say that it's a core part of the show.
