Old Stories · 11:05pm November 20th

They say that everything old is new again. Sometimes that's true, I think.

In this case, I've been reading a lot of ponyfics lately, including many old ones from my list of favorites, that I hadn't read in years. I've been reminded of stories that I had almost forgotten about, and reacquainted myself with ones that I've read several times over already. And over and over again, I'm surprised and impressed and thrilled by how good they still are.

G5 - Where is Sunny's Mom? · 11:46am Dec 2nd, 2021

Where, indeed, is Sunny's mother? We see Argyle, her dad, and the movie very strongly implies he's dead -- or has been missing for years, presumed dead -- but there's no sign of her mother anywhere.

Similarly, Sprout's mother Phyllis features prominently, but there's no sign of his father.

Dune - go see it · 2:15pm Sep 21st, 2021

What the title says, basically. The new Dune movie is seriously good, and if you like Dune, or sweeping SF epics in general, you should go see it, preferably on the biggest screen you can. It's gorgeous! The movie follows the book much better than the Lynch film did, and lets the environment play a big role, as is fitting.

Just in case it needs to be said: · 7:26pm Aug 31st, 2021

If you haven't already, go get vaccinated against Covid-19, ASAP. The vaccines are safe and they work.

Do not try any of the purported "cures" like hydroxichloroquin or, sigh, ivermectin.

In case it wasn't obvious yet... · 11:12am Jul 18th, 2020

No, I do not want Nazis in this fandom.

I don't want stories about cutesy Nazi OCs, who exist to give "ironic" cover to actual Nazis and racists, and to normalize Nazi presence in MLP fandom.

I don't especially want people saying they're doing this in defense of free speech. They are, at best, fools who aid and abet the far-right that wants to destroy freedom of speech; at worst, they're Nazis doing it on purpose.

Black Lives Matter · 6:52am Jun 5th, 2020

As a pasty-white European from a country with its own racist issues (though, thankfully, a vastly better police force), I feel a bit like an intruder if I talk about the current wave of protests against police violence and racism in the US.

But I can agree with the post title, and share it with you, in a small show of solidarity: Black Lives Matter.

And if anyone tries to be "clever" with All Lives Matter, well, here's what you're doing:

Not the comeback I expected · 3:04pm Apr 28th, 2020

As the blog title says, this is not exactly the way I expected to return to the world of MLP:FiM fanfic. My first ponyfic in ages ended up also being my first clopfic, written for dirty little secret's clopfic contest. :twilightsheepish:

Coronavirus · 6:08pm Mar 12th, 2020

Unless you've been hiding under a rock in a cavern far far away, you are aware of the coronavirus pandemic currently going on. All I can say is to repeat what everyone's telling you to do: wash your hands with plenty of warm water and soap, or use hand sanitizer with 60-70% ABV; stay away from crowds; don't cough at people, or touch your face with unwashed hands.

Grumpy McGrumpypants moment · 3:54pm Jan 5th, 2019

I wish there was a way to automatically filter away any story featuring "Anon".

ANON IS NOT A CHARACTER! IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A SELF-INSERT TO BANG PONIES OR WHATEVER, THEN PUT IN THE MINIMAL EFFORT TO GIVE THEM A [BUY SOME APPLES] NAME!

So yeah. I'm feeling slightly peeved. :pinkiegasp:
