Things I Never Wanted In An MLP Episode · 8:42pm Sep 3rd, 2016

1) Basketball

2) Snails

3) Those horrendous, god-awful, hideously out of place facial animations on the train. Jesus, those expressions don't belong in this show.

Episode review: "Buckball Season" · 10:13pm Sep 4th, 2016

In my scoring system, two of the four elements which contribute to the episode's rating are theme and characterization. These are both essential elements of a great episode, but they're meaningless if the episode can't entertain all the way through. "Buckball Season" is a strong example of this, as it boasts fully-formed themes, a relatively strong moral, and some of the strongest characterization we've seen in this show, but none of that can compensate for its eventual descent into tedium

I'm Not Making a Moonbase Alpha Joke [episode spoilers!] · 4:15pm Sep 3rd, 2016

Man, I love Dungeons & Discords. "Discord episode" has become as much an epithet as "Spike episode", but when the writers try and actually make sure he's doing interesting, funny things, Discord is great to have around. And somehow, they were able to make an episode that just brushes up against the cringe line without actually crossing it. Not ultimately substantial, but tons of fun, no real complaints. Also, dat Puerto Caballo.

Sport for Statistics Fans · 10:21pm Sep 6th, 2016

I believe Buckball Abstract has the record among all my stories for the highest ratio of views-in-the-first-24-hours to time-taken-to-write. This was just a random idea I had after watching Buckball Season. When I started writing I thought it would make a new chapter in Codex Equestria, but it drifted just

Bucking, Balling, and Mathematics · 3:28pm May 12th, 2019

Good to see in Common Ground that the analysis of Buckball statistics I imagined in Buckball Abstract is now canon.

I think it must be time to investigate this branch of applied mathematics further.

Buckball Season review · 8:14am Sep 5th, 2016

Hello there. another week another episode. This week we saw the appearance of a sports game that sounds pretty dang fun, Buckball. I'm honestly not that big of a sports person but the concept of Buckball sounded like it could be a pretty entertaining one. We've never really seen any sporting events in the show except for Wonderbolt shows so it was nice to see another aspect of sporting in Equestria (even if not very many have heard of it). I usually talk about how the episode shows some kind

A new story... · 11:16pm Jan 6th, 2017

Hi, everyone...

Just uploaded to the site a new one. 10,000 words. A few edits, and I'll make it live...

In the meantime, a few hints...

Ponyville purple, sky blue, and white...

Won against Appleoosa red...

Sure were a LOT of ponies in the stands...

Soooo...MAYBE it's time for Equestria to have a professional sports team...

And how they react to it...

I'm limited to five character descriptions...but the whole damn world has a part in this one, it seems...including me...

Two Background Ponies Quickie: "Buckball Season" Aftermath · 12:27am Sep 5th, 2016

The blue stallion pushed the plate of cookies out of the way, slapped the field guide on the table, cracked open to a pre-marked page, and then shoved it forward for his green friend to look at.

"There you go, Carl."

Poorly Drawn Encouragement Ponies Makes Its Triumphant Return! · 4:59pm May 4th, 2019

It's been a while since I arted, eh? Losing my iPad certainly has a lot to do with that. MS Paint just isn't the same. But I digress. The newest episode (which has a tragic but touching backstory) inspired me to start back up again. PDEP is back, baby!

Where and when would the first FIFA World Cup be held in our post-Event, Ponies After People world? · 7:56pm Mar 21st, 2019

As football (known in North America as soccer) is the world's most popular sport, it would be logical to assume that it would be the first international sports event to be revived in the post-Event world.

Please keep in mind that during a game, the two goalkeepers are the only players who can use their hands. Therefore, those returnee ponies and natural born ponies could play all other team positions without any problems.

Well I can rest easy now (and other things as of 9/2016) · 5:19am Sep 4th, 2016

So today's new episode, "Buckball Season," was a cute and fun one, but it doubly catches my attention, because as it happens, I've long had an idea for a fanfic that runs freakishly similar to it. :rainbowhuh:

I had thought I had made mention to it's existence before way back in my early days on this site, but upon reviewing my archived blog posts, that clearly wasn't the case, so here's a quick run through:
