The Magical World of Illusory Value · 6:13pm June 27th

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.

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

My Music Cabinet: Lord Huron · 12:17am June 16th

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.

It's Time · 10:27pm June 12th

So Cyne just dropped the canonical sequel to "The Safety Bell was Silent". It's straight up vampire smut.

I feel pretty good about this.

Please check out "Into That Darkness Peering" here.

Standard De-Surgent, or: How the Pro Tour Wrecked my Heart · 3:47pm June 10th

It might be a bit early to call this, but I think the winter of our Standard discontent might finally be drawing to a close. For the first time since the bans began, not only is competitive attention divided between standard and other constructed formats again but standard itself is experiencing a mini-rebirth. Decks are evolving, new lists are breaking through to prominence, and for at least a little while the format diversity is pretty high.

Let's Talk About "Representation" · 3:14pm June 4th

Hoo boy. This one might get heavy. Then again the only time things get heavy for me is if I blog about a story I don't like by a popular author who isn't Kudzuhaiku, so maybe not. I'm still preparing for [the discourse] because it is omnipresent and the source of all that is evil on the internet.

Informal Magic Spin-Off Poll · 2:36pm March 26th

So, I have a conundrum.

1) Out of all the content I do on this blog, probably my favorite thing to do is random Magic articles written to try and give everyone else a window into my favorite hobby and/or money sink.

2) Most of my followers don't click said content and it's kinda weird doing so much stuff for that fandom on what's nominally a pony/writing blog. Even if it's kinda not and has never been.
