The greatest storyteller of our time, or just another smuck brony on the internet? YOU decide! (Also I do episode analysis sometimes.)

Branching Out · 2:04pm Dec 30th, 2019

Hi everyone, Mystic Mind here!

Making this blog to announce that I'm branching out my own fanfiction capabilities. I have been struck by inspiration to write a Hilda-based naturist fantasy story, so that will be the next project I work on. This does not mean pony fics will be going away, just that there may be breaks between how often I release them, depending on what I'm inspired to write!

Coming this Halloween... · 1:10am Oct 28th, 2019

Down there in the darkness
Centuries of evil
And his arms will take you deeper and deeper
God lives under water
We all seek his kingdom
And you feel his embrace, sweeter and sweeter

Progressive Pony Analysis: Growing Up is Hard to Do, (Spoilers Ahead) · 12:54am Sep 29th, 2019

This episode was painfully generic. It could have been an interesting commentary on the limitations of adult expectations on children, but instead it just plays out as a by-the-numbers "be careful what you wish for" story. It's an important lesson for kids to learn that adults have so many more responsibilities which get in the way of hobbies. It's something I myself am still struggling with, so I absolutely see the perspective of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

First Fimpressions: "Horse Play" · 10:46am Apr 29th, 2018

Now the season is starting to hit its stride! It's rare for us to get more characterization of Princess Celestia, but it's hardly ever unwelcome. Our lives rarely pan out how we desire them to, and given Celestia's status, it's easy to see how her desires for acting never panned out.

First Fimpressions: "Grannies Gone Wild" · 4:19pm Apr 14th, 2018

This episode frustrates me.

From an analytical perspective, I liked the themes on display and the conflict between the Golden Girls and Rainbow Dash. But from a base entertainment perspective, there was so much wrong with it.

First Fimpressions: Fake it Till you Make It. · 8:29am Apr 8th, 2018

WARNING! UNTAGGED SPOILERS AHEAD!

This is one of those episodes which does exceptionally well in the first and third act, yet falters in the middle by a sudden and unexplained shift in characterisation. I understand the set up, with Fluttershy taking up a particular archetype for the different types of customers who visit Rarity For You. It's a theatrical act, using each outfit to form the basis of her persona's,

Re-Edits and New Stories · 10:48am Mar 26th, 2018

Greetings every-creature!

Now that Sacred and Wild is finally complete, I have several ideas and options for where I could go next with my creative writing. I recently opened an old document containing the beginnings of a naturist-style D&D fic, re-editing what I have so far as both a reminder of where I'm up to, and to bring it up to my current standards.
