On the Subject of Narratives · 9:36pm January 5th

Narratives are, generally, a good thing. They are a heuristic that we use to take a disparate collection of information, and assemble it into a meaningful distillation. Or, if you prefer a less pretentious phrasing, they're a way for people to turn a bunch of data points into something meaningful.

A Couple New Minifics · 8:32pm Jul 13th, 2020

So! Back in December, I said this:

in 2020, I'm going to gussy up and post as many of those stories as I can, either as stand-alone short stories or in my minific collection, Bantam Tales.

Story Advice, and Absolutely Nothing Else · 5:43pm Jun 6th, 2020

Hey everyone!  Been a while since we talked, hasn’t it?  

Well, if you’re like me, your FiMFic feed has been dominated, these last couple of days, by posts that aren’t directly FiMFic-related.  I mean, most of them are, in an indirect way (hint: what are the key themes of the show?), but perhaps you find them a little bit off-topic, considering the nature of this site.

Santa Hats and New Year's Resolutions · 4:02pm Dec 8th, 2019

So, all the cool kids did this a week ago. But if you're an uncool adult like me, here's your late-to-the-party reminder: it's December, and that means it's Santa hat time! In that delightful tradition started by The Descendent... what, seven, eight years ago? Time flies... feel free to edit a Santa hat onto your chosen FiMFic avatar. If you think it's cute holiday fun, join in! And if you don't, well, don't.
