Genuinely wishing I had more time and motivation to write. Sometimes you'll get lucky. Mostly you'll be disappointed.

Brief Update · 6:38pm Oct 19th, 2017

So I do still come here with some regularity, and I do read all my messages and notices, if only to remind myself of a time I had something I really focused on and worked on, and the most common theme is "Is The Most Unlikely Places going to be finished?" The answer, as one might imagine, is complicated.

Farewell, I guess. · 3:33am Oct 9th, 2015

So someone suggested to me that I should post a farewell note, regardless of the actual eventual result of the note in question. I think that makes sense, but I'm going to expand the eventual result--or so I hope--to some meaningful degree. Note I have been drinking, so the typos are a result of that. The sentiment is not.

That moment... · 3:42pm Sep 2nd, 2015

...when you finally make a breakthrough on a scene you've been fighting for the past month. It's better than watching a new Rarity episode with a Tom Collins in your hand.

Okay, not quite that good, but close.

Story: Last Winter · 1:48pm Aug 14th, 2015

So I'd like to think everyone who is a fan of "The Most Unlikely Places" is also one of my followers, but considering TMUP has twice as many likes as I do, I recognize that's probably not the case. As a result, a lot of you may not have noticed that TMUP has a new spinoff in production:

100 Episodes of Canon Getting in the Way of Fanon · 5:53pm Jun 14th, 2015

It's almost too bad I liked the 100th episode as much as I did. If I'd hated the canon they introduced (and/or implied), I could brush it off and go about my business. I didn't, though. I loved it. Granted, the only canon that really interferes with anything I do was Vinyltavia related, so I guess I'm fortunate in that respect. That said, there was one thing I saw that I really liked that MASSIVELY interferes with everything I've done so far. I'm going to discuss it here because it

Really? · 4:31pm May 14th, 2015

I try to be pretty accommodating to people's opinions, especially in the comments section of my stories. I try not to quash debate, even when it gets a touch heated, and I only step in when I think there's a chance for the discussion to take a vitriolic turn. But there is one thing I have asked people not to do, and I made it clear in two separate places--my blog and in response to some comments to the effect--and I've been ignored.

So I'm going to make it even more clear.

Brief poll, plus fanart (in a non-visual medium) · 4:27pm Mar 9th, 2015

So I've been surfing the MLP subreddit and came across a pic by an artist whose canon I adore, specifically as it relates to Rarity, Spike, and their eventual life together. Siansaar has created a fascinating hybrid creature--the dracony--that I rather like as a concept, so I'm contemplating making it canon for the NLL universe. Normally I don't poll for opinions (see: Glitter Shell), but in this case, it seems a tad unfair to just shuffle a

A note concerning a recurring debate · 2:51am Oct 24th, 2014

So there have been several people now who have taken umbrage with my use of the word "y'all" in a singular sense. I'm going to address it now and put the issue to rest, because I'm tired of seeing it rehashed in the comments section every time I post a chapter.

The argument goes that "y'all" is a contraction of "you" and "all". This is true.
