    Vague Worldbuildy Things · 4:43pm Jul 18th, 2016

    On Hunting Season, Scourge of Lightning asked a couple of questions about burliness that have branched off into some worldbuildy aspects, and more importantly, is getting really long. I'm also copying the conversation about Bigness just to make it easier to reference at the bottom. If you're really interested in the silly world in my head, there's some aspects here, though the post gets long for archival reasons. I'll

    Questions about the Hyperverse · 4:45pm Jul 18th, 2016

    So, especially including the archive of the questions Scourge asked, that last one got long. If you've got questions about the Hyperverse, even just including what people are doing or look like, as long as they aren't too spoilery, feel free to ask them here.

    Speculation and Worldbuilding: a Pony Trading Card Game · 10:45pm Jul 3rd, 2016

    In a previous musing post, I covered the idea of pony playing cards. In another, I discussed magic pony sports. Both of these are the sort of things influenced by tradition and simplicity. Today, I'd like to discuss a type of game that is the opposite: something that is explicitly constructed and designed. That's right, today we're discussing the cultural fixture that is the Trading Card Game.

    Sex and World-building · 5:18pm Nov 13th, 2016

    I've recently discovered something: some of the best world building I've read in the last few years is coming from porn (or, "clop" for us pony perverts in the know).

    Ghost on Worldbuilding 2—The Teleology of Technology -or- Revolvers in Equestria, Yay or Neigh? · 4:47pm Jul 13th, 2015

    Hello my readers... uh. Um. Damn. Plum ran out of adjectives.

    Mm...ah!

    Hello my readers augusti et augustae!

    Well. It'll have to do. For now.

    (Warning: Long post is loooooong. If you just want the Equestria bit without me ranting about... oooh, all manner of thing, just read sections I, V, and VI.)

    Actually, I'm Dead - Autopsy: Schrodinger's Butterfly of DOOM! · 2:29am Sep 17th, 2015

    No, not that Doom.

    Okay, first of all, this editorial was meant to come before Chapter 7, right after the second interlude. But the absurdly bad timed combination of my nephews coming to visit, a bone-crushing cold and your typical Chilean earthquake delayed its publication, so here it is.

    Some Thoughts on Worldbuilding · 9:58pm February 8th

    His brow creased with concentration, Lofting set the ruler across the map, made a few fine adjustments, and traced a line from East to West. This done, he studied his handiwork a moment, laid his tools aside, and stabbed a fingertip upon where the pencil marks crossed. "That is where we must go," he said.

    Cadance in furs; musings about BDSM and ponies · 5:16pm July 2nd

    About a year ago, I came across a fic--one I'm sure many are familiar with, the Clocktower Society, which for want of a more romanized way of describing it, is essentially a story about a BDSM cult that everypony (literally everypony) is a part of. Except Twilight, but she gets her own eventually.

    Ultimately, this blog post isn't about that.

    Notes on Equestrian Government Structure (headcanon, obviously) · 7:40pm October 15th

    Political system in Equestria can be most succintly described as "constitutional oligarchy". While nominally, the minutae government have had been largely delegated to elected representatives, major decisions are universally deferred to alicorns.

    How to Get Your Mechanic to Spit in Your Oil/Worldbuilding · 12:50am July 12th

    I was gonna write another blog post about mechanicing, because people like those, but then I decided to change subjects slightly, due to one of our customers today.

    And this actually is a nice lead-in to another blog post that I was going to write eventually, so win/win, I guess?

    Equestrian calendars and the lunar portal cycle · 5:16pm April 13th

    I've just read Krickis's post on when the portal to the human world opens, and while composing a reply to some of the comments there, I've come across a rather nice coincidence (and co-incidence) in how often it opens. Before I describe it, though, some groundwork is necessary to establish the conditions that make it work. I can't help but take the opportunity to describe my own

    It's been awhile. What I've been up to and a promotion for Firesight's Best Story Ever. · 5:23am September 21st

    I don't do too much these days on Fimfiction. I'm not gone or anything like that. Just not as active. Still watching all the new MLP when it comes out. Gotta say the second-half of the season has been much much better than the first. That episode with Applejack and her parents? That might be the finest episode of MLP to ever air. Seriously. Ever. :ajsmug: The latest episode, about Rarity's mane of all things, featured a magnificent tribute to the Flower Trio surpassing their appearance

    Being a Better Writer: Static Backdrop · 10:10pm Sep 26th, 2016

    You ever watch an old movie? Not like black-and-white, pre-talkies era, but forties or fifties-era flick. You know, color, but early color, surprisingly regular inclination to break into song and dance?

    It was a thing.

    Anyway, if you've ever sat down and watched one of these older flicks with friends, family, or even on your lonesome, it's likely that at some point during the runtime of the film, a comment similar to the following was made:

    Being a Better Writer: Don't Neglect Your Backdrop · 5:51pm February 7th

    Apologies for the delay. My other job scheduled me for several Mondays in a row, and I wasn’t able to get this post done well enough in advance to make the release date. Next week’s post should be done more in advance, however.

    There was a post I made here, once, where I brought up the “painted on backdrop.”

    Unto Darkness: A Crossover Project · 2:04am Nov 2nd, 2016

    ... So I'm working on something for once. It's a Crossover story between Dark Souls and My Little Pony. Not very (or at all) original, perhaps, but I am excited to develop and (hopefully) get to writing it sometime. I still need to do quite a lot of research into both MLP and Dark Souls for this project to come into full swing, but I'm willing to wait. Rushing something like this just isn't fun. Posting the progress I've made so far is a great opportunity for those who have somehow come here to

    Orbital Friendship Cannon · 3:09am June 5th

    ...because just in case I need them, I am exactly the sort of person who would sketch out the plans of a satellite-based system capable of delivering a hot, fresh beam of Elements-weaponized Harmony (tm) to any point on the surface of Equus in under ninety seconds, along with notes on proper operation.

    Why do I mention this?

    So that I can publicly pledge not to consider placing the Crystal Heart in a second such system and calling it the Satellite of Love, of course!
