Elpis in pictures · 4:50pm Sep 27th, 2018

Rich Burlew (Order of the Stick) accidentally made a comic strip version of "Elpis"!

I tried inlining the image here, but it turns out it's too tall to display on fimfiction. Here are the first 5 panels:

An explanation of "Elpis" · 4:24am Dec 20th, 2014

I wrote an explanation of "Elpis" in response to The Royal Guard's rejection of it. I realized while writing it that I hadn't understood the story completely. So odds are pretty good that some of you didn't, either. Here's my explanation (revised since I sent it back):

Ἐλπίς (Elpis (Hope)) · 4:42am Jul 29th, 2014

I have to apologize--you folks pledged all that money for the Clarion write-a-thon, and it doesn't look like I can get another story out before Bronycon. Especially since I found out I left part of my costume in Pennsylvania. And have to rebuild it. And can't use the 3D printer I just spent 2 full days making a model for. I'll get some stories out; they just won't be in time for the write-a-thon, which ends during
