Finishing Finished my master's in Biology in Washington State, job hunting now. I enjoy camping/hiking, tapletop RPGS, and being lazy. I also dabble in writing and drawing, among other things.

Update · 3:30am Jun 11th, 2017

I feel like I should write a short explanation for my absence, at the least. I don't want to go into too much detail, but I can give a brief explanation.

Chapter 5! · 9:06pm Feb 18th, 2017

Hey all! Chapter 5 of 'Earth Ponies Can Cast Spells Too' is finally here! It only took 13+ months. :derpytongue2:

On the bright side, Chapter 6 is also mostly written, just needs to be polished and reviewed. I've also finally found a job, which means I should have a bit more time for writing. Hopefully the rest of the chapters won't take so long!

Thanks for reading, and enjoy! :twilightsmile:

Finally, officially, a SCIENCE MASTER · 12:22am May 21st, 2016

I just finished my thesis defense, and it went amazingly well. It's finally official, I have a Master's degree in Biology! :D

Now, I must be off. It's time to drink copious amount of alcohol in celebration! (We need a Berry Punch icon on this site!)

To make this relevant: that also means that, once I find a real job, I should have a fair bit more time available for writing. Huzzah!

Arts, Avatars, and Stories · 12:21am Sep 7th, 2015

I managed to submit a drawing for almost every day this year for EQD's Artist Training Ground. It was good fun, I learned a lot, and I feel like I really improved on that front.

One of my last drawings was a sketch of Velvet Remedy inspired by this song. It turned out well enough that it's the first time I've used one of my own works as an avatar. Yay. :yay:

Earth Ponies Can Cast Spells Too - Chapter 3 posted · 11:40pm Aug 2nd, 2015

And it only took me three months this time! :pinkiehappy:

Chapter's finally up. Hopefully you all enjoy it. I departed from the "find the monster and fight it" structure of the last two chapters. I actually found this slice-of-life/world-building type of writing more difficult than the relatively straightforward action/adventure scenes. I enjoyed them both immensely, though.

Earth Ponies Can Cast Spells - Chapter 2 out! · 5:35am Apr 18th, 2015

Hello all! I finally finished chapter 2 of Earth Ponies Can Cast Spells Too. Give it a read, and let me know what you think!

It took longer than I expected, but a full-time job and thesis work doesn't leave much time for writing. Hopefully I'll be able to get the next one out a bit quicker, but I can't promise anything.

Earth Ponies Can Cast Spells Too accepted by EQD · 3:22am Apr 6th, 2015

I'm happy! After some back-and-forth with the prereaders my story has been accepted by Equestria Daily, and has its own post :pinkiehappy:. I'm grateful for all the interest everyone's shown, it's been great fun planning out the story and having a chance to work my artistic muscles. The EQD prereaders have been very helpful in identifying weak points in my writing and helping me improve, I'm very appreciative of the feedback they've provided.

Story update -- Ch. 1 updated · 3:20am Feb 7th, 2015

Hi all!

First, thank you for following me and reading the stuff I write. It really does make me happy :)

Second, I apologize for this not being a continuation of the story. Rest assured though, it's on the way. I have all the ideas for Chapter 2 laid out, just have to finish writing it. I'll probably be able to get that out by the end of the month.

I hope I'm doing this right and everyone sees it · 6:27am Dec 25th, 2014

First, thank you to everyone who read my story already. I never expected to get such a large response to my first story! You've actually made it hard for me to keep up with all the notifications I've been getting from this site! :pinkiehappy: It fills my heart with joy to see my work appreciated.
