A new story on its way · 2:34pm Apr 1st, 2013

Submitted a new story this morning. I know for a lot of people following me, this might not be their cup of hot cider.

I won't begrudge anyone for passing it up. For those of you not into horror, a new, longer-style adventure fic more in the tone of Dream of Dawn (though WAY less sucky, and lighthearted) should be up in about a week. Depending how bad my school/thesis work gets, maybe give or take a few days.

Good advice for anyone on here, and also how I feel about the MLP comic's recent conclusion.

So my last story is still in post-production but it is a multimedia experience as well as a collaboration and it will be done when it is done.

Like the melodic chirrup of a bat, I break the silence to sound out where all of my friends and followers are. Ahm.

Next Story Drafted & Some Craft Talk (11 Rules for Writing Stories) · 3:22am Jan 31st, 2013

First bit of business is that in spite of my alarming radio silence aside from the occasional jib post, I've been hard at work on my next story! And studying. But mostly.. uh, mostly studying. I'll be a little more proactive after my examination, which incidentally is a full day of testing that starts about 2 hours after the season finale airs. Hurrah?

(From THE SONNETS TO ORPHEUS) · 1:17pm Jan 25th, 2013

I, 2

And it was almost a girl who, stepping from
this single harmony of song and lyre,
appeared to me through her diaphonous form
and made herself a bed inside my ear.

And slept in me. Her sleep was everything:
the awesome trees, the distances I had felt
so deeply that I could touch them, meadows in spring:
all wonders that had ever seized my heart.

She slept the world. Singing god, how was that first
sleep so perfect that she had no desire

That episode · 4:06pm Jan 19th, 2013

Hahahahaaaaaa suck it. MY FIC LIVES.

Plot was hurried over 22 minutes but I bought the emotional core. If they had 44 minutes to work it out, it'd be less knee-jerk and sudden. Hmm. I guess I could discuss it more later. . .

Right, DoD was finished last night for anyone counting. :>

I'll clean up the first few chapters a bit and write a lengthy reflective afterward, reading optional.

The Serpent

There was a Serpent who had to sing.
There was. There was.
He simply gave up Serpenting.
Because. Because.
He didn’t like his Kind of Life;
He couldn’t find a proper Wife;
He was a Serpent with a soul;
He got no Pleasure down his Hole.
And so, of course, he had to Sing,
And Sing he did, like Anything!
The Birds, they were, they were Astounded;
And various Measures Propounded
To stop the Serpent’s Awful Racket:
They bought a Drum. He wouldn’t Whack it.

That news I talked about · 12:09pm Jan 14th, 2013

I can only imagine what that looks like from your side. . . I haven't updated in a while because I've been working really hard on the draft. Could see the light at the end of the tunnel, as it were. Well, that turned out to be a biiiit longer than I'd thought... just a bit. The point is, the draft is done. Pending any unforseen rebellions, everything is in the process of being pre-read and then revised. I'm gunning to have the whole thing out before this week's episode and it might be

New character design · 4:31pm Dec 22nd, 2012

Some spoilers for this week's episode.

This + this. Combine them. It must happen. I can't draw, but... Aaah, I totally call dibs on this character/pony design. <3 Yeah I know it doesn't work like that. . . .
