I am a human-shaped unicorn, and I write stories and draw pictures. My only religion is Friendship, and my only politics is Kindness. I write stories to try to comprehend the native simians that live on the planet I'm kind of stuck on. I know I'll never figure them out, but it's fun to try.

"Less well known is the paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

Fuck all Nazis, racists and bigots, under whatever name they call themselves.

I absolutely love hard sci fi, almost as much as well written science fantasy that doesn't just handwave the more abstract concepts. It's always been a big influence on my life. Science, and STEM in general has always enthralled me, but Fantasy is freeing in its own way. It's hard to do but you managed to bridge the gap, creating hard sci fi with understood concepts that conforms properly to a fantasy setting. I especially enjoy your take on Princess Celestia. It very much makes sense for a truly superior being or set of beings to operate on what is called "Blue and Orange" morality. It's just so incomprehensible that it cannot be understood, but that makes it so much better.


Thank you, and thank you for reading my stories. It was very much my intention that all of my stories here be hard science fiction. That is what I grew up on, that is what I love the most. My biggest influences are the golden and silver age authors from the 40's, 50's and 60's.

To be honest, I actually never intended to read a lot of TCB fics because at first I believed the vast majority of them that weren't fics where "humans win, everything's fine" were purely the result of internalized misanthropy. Your work got me to think twice about that. While incredibly controversial, I do believe your works are very strong examples of hard science fiction. Keep it up.

Hah, you're quite welcome! :D

And thanks for thinking to suggest it, Crystal Alchemist.
