    On Princesses, PhDs, and plastic dolls · 7:34pm Oct 15th, 2013

    Like many fans, one of things I love about My Little Pony is the strong feminist base. Lauren Faust made it clear from the start that her vision was not the traditional pretty-little-princess line of girls' toys, but would follow the adventures of a diverse group of positive female role models, skilfully crafted to meet Hasbro's requirements, without compromising any feminist values. The result being the awesome set of characters we know and love.

    Like many, I therefore felt a little uneasy at the slow but definite princessification of the show, which first introduced Cadence – a pink pony princess presumably made to order for the Hasbro marketing department; and then crowned our favourite pony, Twilight Sparkle with a glittery headpiece.

    Story: Princess of Friendship · 5:53pm Jun 6th, 2014

    Princess of Friendship (the complete story).

    (Google Doc version of the story)

    It started months ago when I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea for a fic. I couldn’t let myself forget it, so I got up and wrote a draft of the story.

    I aimed for it to be a one-shot, and I published it as such. I even Won a competition with just one chapter of it.

    Author notes on The Night Guard - Night Mares, the sequel to A War of Words - The Opening of the Guard · 11:37pm Jan 9th, 2015

    I’ve had a number of questions about my story Night Mares, and I thought the best way to answer them would be a blog post. I promise not to whine or complain about comments, other than simply “Waa, you suck!” posts, which will simply be ignored. (One must describe just why said story sucks, or you’re trolling.)

    With no more tl;dr, here we go.

    Fanart (& Interview) Repository · 8:13pm Jan 14th, 2015

    I'll just come out and say it: seeing fanart of my fanfiction feels amazing. It makes me feel like I'm kind of a big deal on a pony fanfiction site on the internet. My user page smells of rich mahogany. I decided that rather than make a new post every time it happens, I'll start collecting it all in a single blog post that I'll update whenever you awesome people make more awesome art. So, without further ado, here's the awesome art.

    Exploration Geophysics for Rock Farmers · 9:53pm Apr 12th, 2014

    I smiled at Maud Pie, wanting to start a conversation and make friends. “So... what is it that you do exactly, on your rock science research trips?”

    Maud thought over the question before answering accurately. “We drill holes in the ground, and extract a core sample.”

    “That sounds interesting...”

    “It's boring.”

    Pinkie Pie bounded over to provide further clarification. “Digging boreholes is time consuming, expensive, and it messes up your hair. That's why every rock farmer knows before you dig, you do a proper survey of the site to learn what's under the ground.”

    “But won't you find rocks wherever you dig?”

    “But they might be the wrong sort of rocks.”

    There was clearly a lot I still had to learn about the way of life of earth ponies.

    “How can you find out what's under the ground without digging?”

    I forgot about this... · 9:07pm Nov 12th, 2014


    So I bought this big sticker/activity book from a Target back in 2012. A month or so later, I noticed one of the Twilight stickers had wings.

    I thought it was a simple mix-up with a pegasus body for a long time, until a few months after Twilight actually grew wings. I pored over the book and found that that sticker was the only picture in the entire book with closed wings. Every other instance of wings showed them open. The pose didn't match anything else either, so I concluded that it must have been an accidental insertion of Alicorn Twilight months before she actually became an Alicorn. Weird.

    Pictures aren't mine, luckily I'm not the only one who noticed this.

    Season 4 Best Ponies · 12:02am May 12th, 2014

    Listing all the highlights of season 4 – or even compiling a definite ranking – would take forever. So many good bits... from the return of Daring Do, Flutterbat, and the epic finale; to the little details like the scariest cave in Equestria, multi-headed animals and the Crystal Empire royal train...

    So I will restrict this post to commenting on just two best ponies.

    Twilight and Luna discuss the Rosetta mission and Luna makes a comet · 10:11pm Aug 9th, 2014

    It was great to see that Twilight’s Sputnik remained orbiting around the Popular Stories box for some five days—far longer than I expected for such a short story. And it has been an exciting week for space science, with the amazing photos from the Rosetta mission. Let’s hear about comets from Twilight and Luna…

    For a moment - My Little Mermaid (Fluttershy and Twilight, also MLM spoilers) · 10:59am Jun 9th, 2015

    [Fluttershy]:
    Okay, get a grip, get a hang of these wings
    It's hard suddenly flapping two big yellow things
    This way is left so which way is right
    Oh, now I'll be flying in in circles all night

    Oh, so this is forward. No problem.

    I can't believe I can get up this high
    I can finally reach, not just stare at the sky
    Out of my cottage, not stuck in a cage
    Look out sky, I can fly, so here I am

    For a moment all of me
    Is alive and at home in the clouds
    I'm spinning and twirling, so speedy and strong
    I know for a fact that I’ve waited too long

    For a moment, life is cool
    I'm a bird in Cloudsdale’s pool
    This is more than my thoughts ever thought it could be
    For a moment, just a moment, lucky me

    [Twilight]:
    If only for one moment
    I have shared with you all I know
    The sky wouldn't be a mystery
    But why did you have to go?

    [Fluttershy]:
    Everything's newer, and brighter and bluer
    And truer to life than before
    Watch me soar
    For a moment I can shine

    EPIC Cringe. · 10:51pm Jun 9th, 2015

    Okay... This is probably old news to some of you, maybe even most of you. But I just recently found out that some guy married a Twilight Sparkle plushie, and that he's convinced that it's the real Twilight. He's (apparently) tried to sue artists who draw NSFW images of Twilight, and he thinks anyone who speaks out against him is a troll. Also, he apparently also takes the thing on dates, tries to feed it, and even tries to have SEX with it.

    Um...

    Well...

    All I have to say on the subject is WHAT THE ABSOLUTE FUCK. I'VE OFFICIALLY LOST ALL FAITH IN HUMANITY.

    Sorry, I just had to get that out because my mind has been blown, and not in a good way.

    And that is all.

    Twilight's Inferno & Trixie vs. Equestria · 9:42pm Jun 13th, 2015

    Note to zel: I think you will find this post boring and gay, so to you, I say this: penis.


    I read these yesterday (both by PaulAsaran):


    Twilight's Inferno

    The cover art is a (somewhat minor) spoiler. Neat, eh?

    Although I'm not entirely sure, I'm thinking that perhaps I should not have read them. Although they are well-written and quite interesting, they had an effect on me that I was not expecting. I suppose I was not expecting it because I've rarely encountered a story that can make me feel sad, even a little bit. The last one I can remember was a few years ago, and I can remember only 2 more some years before that (so 3 total).

    Sneak peek at some future stuff · 6:35am Jun 14th, 2015

    So, people were asking me about things Twilight would have to face. So here's a little peek.


    Twilight smiled as she watched Rainbow carry Scootaloo about in the air.

    "Come on Squirt! Put those babies to work!" Rainbow hollered. Scootaloo frantically flapped her wings, held up the entire time by Rainbow. Her wings were more than powerful enough to carry her at this point. But having never been off the ground she had developed a lot of bad habits that kept them from working properly. It was something Rainbow was trying to help her break through.

    Twilight was left feeling helpless on the ground. All of her notes, all of her research...all of it was useless once Scootaloo was in the air. Sure, Twilight could explain to the T how and what Scootaloo had to do to fly, but actually doing it was different.

    Second Best featured... · 12:55pm Jun 14th, 2015

    ...Umm...

    ...Okaaaaaay?

    Any particular reason this got featured? I just sorta wanted do address something the episode did not in the fact that Sparkler was sort of given the boot completely unintentionally by Twilight as an organizer. Given Twilight's my fav of the Mane Six but I've only actually written for her in one or two fics.

    I seriously didn't think it'd get the attention it's getting...:twilightoops:

    Well...thanks for liking the story guys. :twilightblush:

    (Spoilers for the new episode) "Oh, come on!" · 8:03pm May 15th, 2016

    I was grinning like a lunatic through that entire part.

    I mean, there's just no way to sugarcoat it, it's weird, and I love what has to be a massive coincidence.

    I mean, seriously! The planet frozen, locked in a eternal blizzard, all life wiped out?

    Princess Luna, seemingly the sole survivor, being spooky and prophesying doom, should a pony fail?

    And finally, and most important of all... Victorian clothing on the ponies?

    It's Decided! · 8:08am May 18th, 2016

    After some heavy solo contemplation and discussions with some friends who like to read my work, I've decided I will do a full rewrite of The Third Duel for these reasons:
    1) The way it is currently written is much less skilled than the writing habits I have now developed;
    2) I want to write it as a proper M-Rated story, so that I can pass the effect of a loss of innocence in a much darker, meaningful way;
    3) The story has gone off on a rather unintelligible tangent that I can't seem to recover from unless I start from the roots;
    4) I just... I really f***ing love that story man... Like, I was so excited just at the thought of rewriting some of my favorite scenes that were all birthed from a simple dream. In other words, it'll be exciting to redo, with more skill, effort, and prowess than I was originally capable of.

    Broken Symmetry: Complete! · 11:46pm May 23rd, 2016

    My incredibly geeky romance novella Broken Symmetry is finally complete!!!


    Okay, okay, I'll update already!

    Unfortunately I am in incredible pain because I broke my arm today at the wrist, so I'll have to be brief here.

    When I originally conceived of this story for the The Writeoff Association's "Out of Time" contest, it was a much shorter Tragedy that ended on the next-to-last chapter. However, as I began expanding it into a romance, I fell in love with the S. S. Moonlight and decided to throw in another couple of twists to give the story a satisfactory conclusion.
