The promised art, at last... · 9:40pm Wednesday

If you read The Maretian, you can recognize everyone, or at least guess.

Artwork by Jason "TexasUberAlles" Meador. EDIT: Go comment and fave on deviantArt: https://www.deviantart.com/art/The-Maretian-742144602

And another contest thing... · 11:18pm Monday

So I entered a sort of contest, more a secret-Santa ficwriting challenge- each entrant got assigned another one randomly and told to write a sequel or a story in the same setting as one of the target writer's works.

I got my assignment, read her two stories, and didn't really see a way to follow up, so I back-burnered the project and focused on other things.

And then today I noticed that I'd missed the deadline for the challenged by one day.

So, apparently I won a thing. · 1:20am Monday

So, For Love of the Love of the Game won the Pinkie Pie award for comedy... after, I'm told, originally being in the running for the Rainbow Dash award for awesomeness.

Which is fair, because I was going for either one. I could also make a weak case for the Twilight Sparkle Attention to Detail or the Fluttershy D'aww.

But not the Rarity Elegance, because the story is possibly Rarity's least elegant moment.

By which I mean, Pilot Cherry Berry is back. Not as swift as a rocket, but I'll take what I can get.

Something that isn't CSP or the Maretian... · 2:33pm March 3rd

... my entry for this year's Scribblefest.

For Love of the Love of the Game.

Enjoy the silliness of Rarity pretending to... well, read for yourself!

On broken algorithms and ego-boos. · 4:30am February 19th

I've been eyeing the "rating" ranking on Changeling Space Program recently.

This morning it was the 13th most popular fic on FimFiction... going by a ratio of up-votes to down-votes.

I'll repeat that: #13 on the list of most popular fics.

The thing is, it was also the only one in the top fifty or so with a three-digit up-vote count. It was that high because only three people had ever down-voted it.

A distraction from van shopping... pony shipping. · 5:42pm February 1st

Here's a list of cards for a Changeling Space Program / The Maretian set for Secret Shipfic Folder, beginning with one made by FanOfMostEverything at a prompt:

PONY CARDS

The Martian
Male
(No species)
AU
Human, Astronaut, Crossover
Martian Isolation (Special): You may play Mark without attaching any Ships to him. Mark isn't discarded when he isn't attached to the rest of the shipping grid. This power can't be copied.

More bloody van troubles. · 11:47pm January 26th

I may have mentioned that last fall I had to have my business van's transmission rebuilt, at a cost of $2000, van rental and associated costs of $600, a loss of $700 in booth fees and an unknown loss of income right before my dead time.

Well, this weekend I'm back in Birmingham- the city where it broke last time- for KamiCon, and it's doing distinctly worrisome things. I'm hoping that one simple, cheap fix will take care of it, once I get back.

KoFi is live. · 3:31am January 22nd

Thanks to all of you who are enjoying The Maretian! I have a small buffer built up, and I'm going to try to write something every day to keep up the daily posts. But it's time to get back on the convention circuit...

Although (at least for the time being) I hope you'll make monthly pledges via Patreon that I can budget around, I now have a KoFi for one-time tips.

Results- What I'm Working On in January · 12:02am January 2nd

Based on the feedback I received here, the overwhelming desire of FimFiction readers is that I write more Changeling Space Program and go ahead with The Maretian. I'll officially post the first chapter of that in a bit. EDIT FIRST CHAPTER IS LIVE NOW.
