Etyco Filly


Just your average Etymologically Correct Filly that equally adores cutesy and/or dramatic romance, as well as horrifying, grimdark tragedies. And any mix of those!

We're halfway there (+ small Q/A) · 5:24pm January 7th

Living on a prayer!
Anyway, since I've posted about half of WOSS, I figured I owed you guys a bit of a behind-the-scenes blog/extended author's notes/whatever the fuck. I don't even know what I'm gonna talk about, I just wanna talk about stuff.

I recently finished the ending. I already had a first draft for the last two chapters when I started publishing, but I ended up rewriting most of it from scratch (and I'm rather happy with it)

New fic, spiritual sequel to FotW · 5:24am Sep 27th, 2023

So hey, I have a new story. Been writing it since I finished FotW, actually, but only recently started publishing.

TWhere Only Silver Shines
Two young ponies attempt to unveil the mysteries of The Tower, a strange and cruel place that seems to defy many laws of nature.

It's kinda-sorta a spiritual sequel to FotW1, and the setting is inspired by Fallout: Equestria2.

As promised in my previous blog post, here's another one where I regroup some really nice art I got.
First, the thing I was waiting for to make this post.

Post-FotW giga rambles · 7:28am Mar 18th, 2023

You can think of this as a long wrap-up blog for FotW, where I share my final thoughts about it. I meant to post this months ago, but then started waiting for one commission.
While the comm itself is ready, I'm still waiting for the artist to post it. I think I'll just make this post now, then do a separate blog post with the fanart I got, and some of the stuff I've commissioned. Because yes, I'm narcissistic enough to commission art of my own story.

Shilling a fic I proofread · 7:50pm Feb 25th, 2023

Just like I said in the title. I really like the fic. It's poetic, interesting and emotional. I recommend it.

The mare peered into the water as the bells struck midnight. She saw a head emerge. Then a hundred.

FotW update and new release schedule · 8:58am Sep 25th, 2022

Hey y'all,
Before anything, I do wanna thank everyone who's been reading FotW, it means a lot every time I see the like counter go up, or a bookshelf notification. Or hell, even when there's just a sudden spike in views. I pour a lot of effort into the fic, and knowing people are enjoying it always makes my day.

Chapter 24 lateness and general update · 8:30am Jun 25th, 2022

Like I said in the title, next chapter is gonna be a few days late. Fic isn't dead, I just missed my deadline.
The next few chapters should be on time, since they're pretty much all written (though still in need of ironing out). The reason 24 in particular is gonna be late is because it wasn't originally planned, so I essentially had less than two weeks to write and edit it.
See y'all then.

It is back! · 10:46am Apr 10th, 2022

So hey, it's been a couple of months, but just as I promised, FotW is back from its editorial break. I have three chapters ready to be published, and two more that are at the end of the rough draft process and will just need to go through the usual three editing passes.

Publishing break · 11:57am Feb 16th, 2022

Hey guys, just a small heads up. I will be taking a small break from publishing new chapters, just to give myself some more breathing room. I'll get the next chapter out on the second Sunday of April. I really need some extra time to get my thoughts in order since I don't want to rush the next 6 or so chapters.
Plus I wanna take time to remaster and maybe rewrite the 5-8 chapters, since the plot gets really stagnant at that point.
Sorry for the delay :fluttercry:
