"Scarlet why are you writing a primer on left politics at three in the morning?" "Because I've lost control of my life." · 2:12pm Jul 15th, 2020

The political opposite of "conservative" is not "liberal".

Ahir Traajijazeri, or, Skyrim Accidentally Taught me How to Find Joy in Protest · 10:20pm Jun 7th, 2020

About a year ago I left my fimfiction account behind, partially because I was burned out after a less-than-fun response to a particular blog post I'd helped workshop but mostly because it had been a long time coming. I haven't really been following MLP since season five so between the show no longer holding my interest and the general trend of the fan community toward tolerating reactionaries, it felt like it was time to go. I don't regret that decision, but I realized about a year in that I

Farewell, my home in Canterlot · 4:16pm Jun 23rd, 2019

You've all noticed by now I've been quiet. Moreso than usual. This has, I believe, officially exceeded my record length for a hiatus. Well, there's a reason for that. Actually, there are several. One of them is that I've been having a hard time coming up with the right time to write these words in, and the right words to say.

I'm leaving FimFiction behind, officially.

Systemic Critique Addendum · 3:15am Feb 21st, 2019

This is an unplanned but very necessary follow-up to my last blog, which you can read here. Special thanks to commenters NikitaKitten and Axis of Rotation for helping me realize that there was more to be said on this subject.

Bad Faith, the Hellmouth, and Puritanical Standards · 7:42pm Jan 11th, 2019

One of my challenges first as a progressive and now as a vague leftist individualist who has serious debates on mutualism vs. marxist-leninism vs. syndicalism is explaining to people that I don't want to take their shit.

In Which My Girlfriend and I Talk About Goblin Slayer · 6:05pm Dec 19th, 2018

So, my girlfriend Cynewulf and I wanted to talk about Goblin Slayer. Along the way, we decided to record what was originally going to be a collaborative text blog post into a dry run for a podcast idea we've been kicking around anyway. Content warning: Light to no editing, strong language, discussions of sexual assault, lesbian flirting, my microphone being shit. I promise at some point I'll be fixing that last one. You can listen

Wholesome Rage content · 12:31pm Nov 7th, 2018

When Ross James is sick, I get to indulge in my magic blog hobby. Today, I'm talking about vampires!

You can find it here.

(Also I guess some elections happened last night but I feel more optimistic about those now).

Risk Reward: A Magic Diatribe · 3:49pm Oct 15th, 2018

I know. I'm gone for months and I come back to write the thing basically none of my followers are here for. I have broken the social contract.

Don't even care, this is going to bother me for months and until I get around to building a new platform and audience that does eat up this content, you are going to have to deal with it. And until I write this, I am going to be haunted by the specter of this. Freaking. Card.
