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

Mystic Mind Analysis: School Daze and Overcoming Prejudice · 10:30pm Jun 9th, 2018

Greetings, one and all! Welcome to Mystic Mind analysis; my irregular critiques of MLP episodes.

I am the Mage of Mind, reminding you as always that even a Cheeseburger can be deconstructed to its original source.

New Fic Updates, Old Fic Updates and re-armed re-edits. · 4:06pm May 31st, 2018

Greetings Guyz, Galz and Enby Palz! Mystic Mind here.

I just wanted to write this blog post to give you an idea of where I'm going with my writings now that I've almost caught up with pre-written chapters of new fics.

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.

First FimPressions: "School Daze!" · 7:55pm Mar 24th, 2018

It's good to be back! Another year, another MLP season. Following on from the (mostly average) movie and all the world building of previous seasons, Twilight and Co. progress into being teachers of friendship, and all the trappings that come with it.

Sacred and Wild: Chapters 1 & 2 re-edits. · 8:46pm Feb 21st, 2018

Slaved away at this, but I've completed my re-edits of the first two chapters! Chapter 3 shouldn't take too long to re-edit, meaning that, with any luck, the fourth and final chapter will be out at the end of this month.

Most changes are small, focusing on shortening paragraphs, removing excessive adverbs etc. But some continuity niggles have been ironed out, and a number of passages have been re-written to stop them being tell heavy.

Sacred and Wild: Chapter 4 update · 12:05pm Feb 8th, 2018

Good news everypony! Not only are you reading this in the voice of professor Fonsworth, and not only is the slime flowing again, but the first draft of Sacred and Wild Chapter 4 is done! I will start editing next week, but in addition, I have decided to go through the old chapters and give them a quick re-edit. This is both tweak the grammar and sentence structure, but also to fix any potential continuity errors. The story has been a long time coming, and so I find it best to give the whole

Night Shift - Sacred and Wild: Post Halloween Update · 11:39pm Nov 1st, 2017

Greetings everypony!

This is just a quick update to bring you patient followers some fantastic news. I have gotten back to writing Sacred & Wild again! Does that mean that it will soon be complete? Well... no, not quite. I have the third chapter done in first draft, and am currently editing it into a second. It still needs to be proof read.
