OMPR vs. Aragon: Who's The Greatest Author (Pre-Teen Edition)? · 1:05am March 3rd

A few months ago, I had a vague recollection hit me about a weird blogpost Aragon wrote.

Yeah, yeah, really narrows it down, I know.

Anyway, the specific weird blogpost I vaguely recollected was one about how he wrote a gruesome cannibal story when he was a kid for a school assignment. I couldn't find it in his blogposts easily, so (after PMing him to ask if he'd even done such a thing, or if I was legit going crazy), I forgot all about it.

A White Hearth's Warming: Now Available in Russian! · 8:48pm Dec 27th, 2021

So, Christmas is now two days in the rearview mirror, but perhaps you find yourself needing just a little more holiday ficcing to get your through until next December (or next November, or next June, or whenever they start putting up Christmas stuff these days). And perhaps you also speak Russian! If so, then have I got a deal for you.

Fly Hard is not your favorite Hearth’s Warming story.”

Rainbow Dash blinked. “Uh, yeah it is.”

As impurturbably as before, Twilight repeated herself. “Fly Hard is not your favorite Hearth’s Warming story.”

“Uh, yeah it is. That’s why I said ‘Fly Hard’ when you asked me what my favorite Hearth’s Warming story was.”

Tomorrow's a Snow Day, That Must Mean It's Time for Santa Hats · 10:49pm Dec 9th, 2021

We're scheduled for up to 17 inches of snow in the next 48 hours! If that's not enough to get us white through to Christmas, then I don't know what is. Pray for my poor, aching back; I'll be shoveling all night long.

OMPR and the Wrongest Person in the World (it's Present Perfect) · 2:48am Nov 23rd, 2021

Just a short blast from the One Man's Pony Ramblings past this time. See, back when I was doing reviews on my review blog but when I wasn't doing reviews on my review blog, sometimes I'd talk about whatever the newest episode had brought us. Not reviews of them, per se, but more just, "here's some stuff I thought about while watching the latest installment of pony." That, and posting all the Carrot Tops I could find, because obviously.

Quiz Time! A Thing You Might Not Remember About OMPR · 11:42pm Sep 6th, 2021

...Well, first of all, you might not remember that OMPR is/was One Man's Pony Ramblings, the mostly-fanfic-review-and-sometimes-other-stuff blog I ran for a long time.  I mean, plenty of you probably do remember it, but it's been *checks notes* jeez, over three years, closer to four, since I stopped?  Man, time flies.

On the Subject of Narratives · 9:36pm Jan 5th, 2021

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.

The Circle and the Cross

Five days ago, the Friendship Map called Rarity to a task. It called her alone. It called her to the middle of an uninhabited swamp.
