A New Chrisfic is Officially Here! · 7:11pm Dec 29th, 2018

Well an, almost-new Chrisfic, if you read it during the past week or so, while it was part of the Jinglemas post.

Anyway, yes, I just published my Secret Santa entry as its own piece:

I wrote a Christmas thing! Also, a challenge! · 7:14am Dec 23rd, 2018

The FiMFic Secret Santa has gone live! Fifty short stories (plus maybe half a dozen more to be posted when their authors finish up) in one big awesome megapost of Christmas Hearth's Warming cheer. And one of them's mine!

Time to put on your Christmas hat! · 2:27am Dec 2nd, 2018

It's December again, and that means it's avatar Christmas hat time! If you find this fun, cute, and/or a pleasant homage to The Descendant, who started this whole thing way back in the misty days of FiMFiction, then slap one on! Don't have the photoshop skills to do it yourself? Do what I did and make one of your e-friends do it for you! Think the whole thing is stupid or affectatious? That's fine too, it's all optional.

Your Occasional "What Chris Is Writing" Update · 1:16am Aug 14th, 2018

First, the "Chris you can read right now" news: today, I posted a 3500 word essay comparing a battle that never actually happened in A Song of Ice and Fire to the Battle of Bannockburn. This was definitely the best use of my time. If you're interested in light military analysis, though, you can check it out here!

One Man's Pony Ramblings and the Royal Canterlot Library · 2:13am Jun 29th, 2018

First thing's first: I finally put up that OMPR retrospective that I wanted to write. It's horribly incomplete, despite also being horribly overlong for what it is... but it's my attempt to put something of a bow on my exit from the field of regularly-scheduled fanfic reviews. If you want to relive a few greatest hits, you can check out the post here.

Random Funny Thing · 2:05am May 4th, 2018

I'm having a good night tonight, and just saw something pony-related that cracked me up repeatedly, so I thought I'd share it. It's not new, but it's new to me, and mayhaps you'll find it as funny as I did.

[Generic Update Title] · 5:12pm Mar 17th, 2018

The last few weeks have been weird. Over the years, that M-W-F update schedule I maintained on OMPR has ingrained itself into my routine; I keep catching myself thinking "it's Tuesday, did I remember to set tomorrow's post up?" before remembering that there is no post. It's a sad feeling, often, but also strangely relaxing; my blog never really felt like a chore, but it was still something that took up a lot of my mental energy. Having that freed up has been a blessed relief at

The End of One Man's Pony Ramblings · 3:07am Mar 7th, 2018

More stuff on the blog, but that's the big bit: after a month-long hiatus, it's time for me to acknowledge that I'm not currently able to review or keep a schedule at the level I attempt to set for myself.

I'll still be around here, I'm not leaving the fandom or anything like that.

Review Roundup: November 6th - December 1st · 12:29am Dec 6th, 2017

It's December, and that means it's time to put on your Christmas hats! Join all the cool kids in doing so, if you find it to be a low-effort way to interact with the community and to generally have a little seasonal fun. Or don't, if you find the avatar hats affectatious and juvenile. Your call, but personally? I think they're a cool little tradition. Plus, it's one of TD's most lasting contributions to the fandom, and I think
