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

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 February 21st

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 January 11th

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.

The Magical World of Illusory Value · 6:13pm Jun 27th, 2018

I have a dilemma.

My most unpopular blog posts by far are my Magic: The Gathering related content, which relatively few of my followers read and which is not as widely recirculated by passing around links. This is usually fine with me even if they're some of my favorite posts to write - I'm on a pony site not a TCG-nerd site. This is the price I pay.

In Defense of the Mary-Sue (And Gary, Too) · 3:26pm Jun 23rd, 2018

I have no patience left for critical discussion that takes the term "Mary-Sue" seriously.

My Music Cabinet: Lord Huron · 12:17am Jun 16th, 2018

When I was in high school, my family moved to a little rural town in southern Virginia to be closer to my grandparents. This meant going from the center of a bed town where I could walk basically anywhere I wanted to a "town" that was more accurately described as a post office. The shock was pretty intense, since it meant not only was I miles away from most of my old friends, I was now basically shackled to our property until I could learn to drive and get some wheels.
