The Royal Guard. A joke of a law enforcement organisation? · 9:45am January 7th

The Royal Guard. As in the guard of the princesses/equestria or whatever. Are they a joke of a law enforcement organisation? That's only not seen as good since the vast majority of Equestria's population are incredibly loyal to the government and law abiding citizens. Think about it, if the crime rate is at virtually zero, why would you need to invest into a great law enforcement organisation? Seem to be more of a ceremonial organisation, if anything.

First of all, this blog relates to The Royal Guard, so if you have no interest in that group or its activities, just ignore this post.

On Writing "Strange Day at the Recruitment Office" · 8:24pm Oct 16th, 2020

I really don't get it. I get a funny scene in my head of someone from the Royal Guard assuming another pony wanted to join the Royal Guard Academy, only to realise that it's actually Gallus, a griffon, and gets flustered because its something that has never happened before. I post it on Wednesday afternoon, and by the end of the day it got less than 20 upvotes and just over 100 views, and I was perfectly happy with that.

Short Hand: Whipping them into Shape 2 · 6:35pm Sep 2nd, 2020

Shepherd: "Okay troops... Today your assignment is to guard the Incredibly Dangerous Weapons Vault! Let's work on things like we practiced."

The troops agree, and then take up their positions. And very soon, a little filly with red hair comes in. She smiles up at the guards.

Applebloom: "Hello! May I please go into the Incredibly Dangerous Weapons Vault, mister? Pretty please?"

Guard 1: "Well... I don't know. It is very dangerous."

Memoirs of a Royal Guard 2nd Edition and Physical Printing

I'm about halfway through the MoaRG 2nd edition. I've been making some tweaks here and there to tie it better to the stories that follow it without damaging what was originally written. I'm not George Lucas!

And it's in progress... · 1:10am Jul 19th, 2015

The Story of a Royal Guard series is now officially The Guard And His Sword. A slight play off of 'The Horse And His Boy.' I would've gone with 'The Sword And Its Horse' but that sounded ridiculous and slightly inaccurate. 'The Horse And His Sword' was also considered, but... well, he's a pony. 'The Pony And His Sword' doesn't work as it doesn't give enough about who he is. He's a guard. Thus the title.

Bat Ponies and Bayonets · 1:30am Dec 17th, 2020

The Battle of the Everfree was still raging hard. Sliverfang watches as several Royal Guards marching through the trees. The Celestial-Luna War was starting to turn against them. By now, the Lunar Guards where at the shorter end of the stick. They were out of arrows and the Royal Guards were pushing them back. They had to bite back.

Silverfang leaned against a tree, watching as the other thestrals got behind cover as well. They stayed there for a few minutes.

CiF Chapter 14 · 2:09am Jul 24th, 2016

So, it's that time again!

Chapter 14 is a short one, and ties up some loose ends from the previous chapter, and also ties into PtH a little but (But I won't spoil how, you have to read it to find out), as well as delving in a little deeper into what exactly a Jaeger is!

Which, let me tell you, is not a pretty thing. I have to thank Jim Hoxworth, though on talking me through the Jaeger process, and making me feel dirty for writing about it!

CiF Chapter 19! · 11:47pm Oct 12th, 2016

So, chapter 19 is here, and as soon as I am done writing this post I'll go hit the publish button!

There isn't a lot to say about the chapter, except that it's sad, and it wraps up the majority of the stuff left with CiF, anything that is leftover gets dealt with in chapter 20.

One thing I will say, though, is that the chapter is dedicated to my grandfather (Kenneth Darcy) and a friend of mine from Middleschool (Nick Change) who both passed away this year.

Blue woke up a few minutes later. He looked down to see his chest had been hit by a magic blast. He blinked before noticing he was laying against a tree with Pharynx and Dagger at his sides, still unconscious.

CiF Chapter 17 · 10:18pm Sep 18th, 2016

Or, as my friend Zol likes to call this chapter "Lode Stone's shining moment".

So, this chapter is offically titled "Breaking the Bank" in which we see Daring, Dawn, Wind, Lode Stone, and another pony who has a very personal vendetta against the Shadowbolts go and take down Equestrian National Bank!

Deleted Scene from "The Iron Horse" Ch. 62 - "Be Cool, It's the Fuzz" · 8:36pm Jun 21st, 2017

The following is a scene from the latest chapter of The Iron Horse, "Television Rules the Nation." This scene expands on the brief scene in the Everfree Forest with the teleportation jump tower being set up by the TechQuestrian personnel under cover of night, but in this version, the Royal Guard spot the tower and investigate.

CiF Chapter 20 · 5:51am Oct 27th, 2016

So, it's midnight where I am right now (Which is Minnesota, by the way, because I am going to be attending Ciderfest with the majority of the Troll Squad) and it occured to me that I didn't publish the final chapter of CiF!

WELL TIME TO FIX THAT BEFORE I GO TO CIDERFEST!

So, for all of you who could not attend the convention, here is the chapter.

For all of you who are, I hope you all have fun! I know I will!

Canterlot in Flames, Chapter 11 · 6:06pm Jun 5th, 2016

THIS ONE GOES TO 11!

I mean, uhm, yeah stupid jokes aside I shall soon present to you chapter 11 of Canterlot in Flames, which is titled "Discord's Traveling Puppet Show!" which, honestly, if that doesn't sound interesting I don't know what you people like, because as the title says this chapter has Discord, and puppets! Who doesn't like puppets!?

Anyway, it also has other things besides puppets, like foals watching the puppet show... oh and more Renegades showing up for a brief moment.

Canterlot in Flames, Chapter 12 · 7:52pm Jun 16th, 2016

So, I was actually going to post this yesterday, but forgot because I am smartest pony!

Anyway, this chapter starts back up some of the political intrigue and introduces a few new characters, as well as advances the plotlines for some of them.

Oh, and also Daring is face down in a bowl of oatmeal, so that's a thing.

Anyway, have fun reading it!

Story on its way... · 7:53pm January 28th

I mentioned in a post last month that I was gonna start writing a longer story around Gallus in the Royal Guard Academy called Bluebird. To let you know my progress, I started writing it two weeks ago. Since I'm back at work full time, I'm largely gonna be writing it on weekends. Meanwhile, I've commissioned some MLP art (the first time I've ever done so, funnily enough) to use as the cover, hopefully you folks will

CiF chapter 15, and some news. · 9:19pm Jul 29th, 2016

So, I am going to publish Canterlot in Flames's 15th Chapter here shortly! Only five more chapters to go before the end of the story!

It's not a long chapter, and is more transitional than anything else, but it's still got some important stuff in it, so I hope you all enjoy it.

Onto some news, however....

So, I am working on the 18th Chapter right now, so I've got a good backlog, but I am going to be putting it on pause over the weekend for two reasons.
