The Similarities Between Fan Fiction and Professional Fiction · 7:41am Oct 28th, 2014

It is often remarked on how different fan fiction is from original fiction. There is definitely truth to these remarks; the amateur nature of fan fiction and the baggage of using an existing setting creates many differences.

Over time, however, I’ve noticed some similarities. One could say that some of these are reaching, or that they happen rarely, and that is not unreasonable. I thought it might be an interesting mental exercise regardless.

Which consists of a thousand single followers.

Which would be you guys. Who followed me. For your own personal reasons.

It's been a hell of a ride so far.

The Bronycon Effect? · 9:55pm Aug 16th, 2017

Minor musing here, but the daily view-count for all my stories doubled during Bronycon, coinciding with a number of upvotes and faves. Now that Brony-con is over, I jumped onto the stat pages for a number of my largest fics (Rise, Beyond the Borderlands, and Tirek is Doomed) and noted that, yes indeed, average daily views of the fics as much as doubled during that period, though the scaling wasn't uniform across the various fics (for example, some had views almost triple

...My muse is a fickle thing · 8:51pm Aug 7th, 2018

So! Good news, bad news time!

Good news! I wrote over 6k in two days!

Bad news! ...It's for a brand new story, that has nothing to do with anything I have already published.

I'm sorry! The idea just wouldn't leave me! I already have five full chapters done, and I promise i'll start work on the next chap of Singularity today or tomorrow. So, yeah. Stay tuned.

Voting Question · 2:46am Jun 5th, 2017

It's a little perplexing to me, but sometimes I see fics that have gray voting bars. Even when someone gives an upvote or a downvote, it remains gray. At first, I thought it was because the author had made the stats invisible, but I couldn't find that option in any of my fic or account settings, so I ruled that out. Then, I figured it was because it was new, but once I uploaded a story and it got a single vote, I needed to rule that idea out as well. Finally, I just thought it was to mask fics

Who Is The Hero And Who Is The Villain? · 8:32am Oct 4th, 2019

Who is the hero and who is the villain?

It’s a question as old as time itself. We ask it to ourselves with every book or show or movie we read or watch. Sometimes you get a clear answer. In MLP, it’s always obvious that Tirek or Chrysalis, or Sombra is the villain. It’s spelled in black and white for us much of the time.

But real life isn’t black and white. Real life is a gray area.

Habits and their Consequences · 7:15am Mar 2nd, 2016

I have a problem. I'm a very imaginative, artistic person, however everything that catches my attention can completely throw me off what I was working on. I must have eight stories that never grew past the first two pages, all of which could have been good works of fiction if I could just have focused better. Even now, I've considered writing a story simply by playing a card game and hearing a good song, yet probably won't due to my record of abandoning projects that barely even start.

Odd Windows Discovery · 10:45pm Jul 24th, 2017

Did you know that Windows doesn't always run the program you tell it to run? You can double-click on an executable and some other executable might be run instead.

I've learned recently that Microsoft intends to discontinue MSPaint for some inexplicable reason. It doesn't require any maintenance to keep; they could easily have abandoned all future development and left it as a relic amongst all the other relics cluttering up the code base. It would've gone on working for many years to come.

Is this what we call ironic? · 6:05am Feb 24th, 2021

I spend the better part of four months stumped on how I want to approach the current scene in chapter four of "Paranoid Pink".

Then tonight I just take another look at the chapter, and find myself writing more than I've done with the story in nearly the past six months.

But I won't complain, though. Progress is progress, and some is better than none at all.

The Lady in Lavender · 8:24pm Jun 21st, 2021

Huh.

I didn't really expect it to blow up like this. I'm very happy that it did - for I thrive off attention, obviously. Funnily enough - it was actually Freedom's unRule that won the poll initially - but the Lady in Lavender was significantly more popular.

The issue with a well-defined timeline... · 11:28pm February 7th

Well... to make one thing clear given this post's title, I will not say that I think there are no issues with the show's timeline. I think that they exist, and I certainly feel the show's staff didn't do the best of jobs at keeping track of the show's timeline at times.

Unexpectedly early entry... · 6:28pm February 20th

So... just yesterday, I posted how I expected to have something ready for posting in the next few days.

Well... there was a slight change of plans there, as I decided that the idea I chose to work on would be better divided in two parts... but a good side of it is that what since became the first part, which is now mostly finished and only needs a bit of polishing, should be up tomorrow, assuming it meets approval.

Again, I can only hope all who read it enjoy it. :)

Really? Were You Staring At My Ass? · 10:00pm Jan 26th, 2017

I had a interesting up day at school the other day.

I'm in choir. Just about the only class I enjoy.

But after class ended I met up with a guy I thought was decent, we chatted a while about what we had planned after the day was done.

He walked me to my locker as I turned around to pick up a book when I saw it from the corner of my eye, his eyes were locked right on my ass.

The end of my timeline issues, and a possible first fic incoming... · 2:48am February 19th

Well... after what happened last time, I probably shouldn't be as hasty to declare that the issues with my timeline are over and done with... but this time, I really think they are. I had to come to a few unexpected compromises regarding some things, but the solution probably turned out for the better. Hopefully readers will like it once the relevant fics are finished and posted.
