Countdown to BOFTA: Why I Don't Like Tolkien Purists · 4:50am Sep 13th, 2015

Yeah I wouldn't normally make something like this, but after dealing for five years with these people and how verbally abuse they've been to others, I think it's time for some proper revenge.

One Box To Rule Them All... · 7:06pm Jun 26th, 2015

I have a shameful confession to make:

I've never read Lord of the Rings.

I've TRIED, but Tolkien's prose is...agonizingly slow for me.

Back in sixth grade, I read about a third of The Hobbit.

Why I Hate D&D · 4:04pm Sep 5th, 2015

I played a lot of AD&D. I loved re-reading in the big hardcover manuals (2nd edition) about the fantastic creatures and the skills and magic to tackle them. I loved the pure yet varied geometry of the dice, the infinite potential of the character sheets. So I was surprised to realize recently that I hate D&D.

Song of Luna · 4:43pm Apr 1st, 2019

Song of Durin Luna
Former by J R Tolkien

The world was young the mountains green
no stain yet on the moon was seen
no words were laid on stream or stone
when Luna woke and walked alone.

She named the nameless hills and dells
she drank from yet untasted wells
she stooped and looked in mirrormare
and saw a crown of stars appear
as gems upon a silver thread
above the shadows of her head.

The world was fair the mountains tall
in elder days before Night Fall

Translation Notes for "Maileheri Mirwa ar Undómë-Aranelirya" · 2:13am Apr 21st, 2018

So apparently some people are actually interested in the Quenya used in my deer clopfic?

As I said in the Author's Note, I didn't keep translation notes, so I actually don't know what some of these sentences mean, but I've retranslated a portion of it (the first 40% or so of the story), along with some linguistic notes. I might do some more translations later, though likely without the grammar explanations.

My Head Cannon Cracked: And That's How Equestria Was Made · 3:41am Oct 2nd, 2015

Let's lay a little groundwork first.

I was checking out the front page here on fimfiction and was generally not finding anything interesting when I took note of how many 'human in Equestria' stories there were. I'm not really a fan of the genre and so, in my lame attempt at trying to get the audience in my imagination to side with me about human in Equestria stories being a kind of tired trope, I started thinking about ways of subverting the concept.

Repeating History: On writing "In Dreams" · 9:02pm Feb 9th, 2019

Let’s just say that I’ve been spending some time away from FiM in media and leave it there, okay? Now, this doesn’t mean I’m pony-free, no, not at all. Besides having the collection of figures and other collectibles grow at a rate that has been unprecedented—the post-holiday purge of parents and retailers—a lot of my time’s been spent reading about previous generations of MLP, both toy lines and their related media. While previous generations were not the initial inspiration for “In Dreams”
