Lapdog of Luna's interests. Dull as he is unremarkable, lackluster as he is soporific. Giving hope to those unfavored by the exceptional. Not the worst, not the best, just what we're stuck with.

Horses Have Feet! · 5:21pm Nov 8th, 2017

If it ever happens to come up, a pony can "land on their feet", or go through something "feet first"! Technically all mammals have feet. Whether they have actual toes we can see doesn't matter. We all share the same bones that make up a foot. However, the morphology is different. Horse ancestors had five-toed feet. Then over millennia the other toes gradually disappeared. They are now just tiny vestigial remnants on the lower leg bones.

Fighters from Mars! · 4:00am May 25th, 2017

I found the FIRST fanfic in American History. "Fighters from Mars" is set in the world of HG Wells "War of the Worlds" but takes place in Boston. That, and its sequel, "Edison's Conquest of Mars" which features appearances by Barnard, Lord Kelvin, Röntgen, Queen Victoria, William McKinley, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Emperor Mutsuhito. AND the first Mary Sue - The author wrote himself into the story as a professor whom Edison consults!

There is Porn of It · 7:07am Feb 5th, 2016

My story, "The Best of Enemies", while not clop, does contain some sex scenes mentioned in passing. And then someone sent me a link to an image which is just spooky familiar to anyone who may have read the first few chapters. I would show you, but apparently both NSFW pictures and LINKS to NFSW pictures are forbidden. Which seemed somewhat odd to me given the amount of rape and foalcon going on on some stories. Then I remembered something, something very critical....

Grind Quest · 7:28pm Jan 15th, 2016

Right now, busy as heck trying to get a security brief done in 4 hours that I was given a month to do. Because all of my other time got sucked up by the frikken time vampires in this office. I swear, sometimes life is a branching tree of grind quests. I am going to turn in this report, and then my boss is going to send me out to slay 50 [GIANT RATS].

On Twilight's Kingdom · 7:13pm May 11th, 2014

The world of My Little Pony is almost what we bronies wish it would be. Almost. Achingly close, but not quite there. The appeal of MLP: FiM and other "world" shows like it - TaleSpin, Swat Kats, Darkwing Duck, etc... is that of a world filled with lore, with details and history, side characters to be explored, and more stories to be told than can be easily counted. There's also the child-like nature of it, the world is simpler, more obvious in a good way, less jaded, less cynical. And, of

The Six Greek Words for Love · 4:19pm Dec 29th, 2013

The ancient Greeks had six different forms of love and, you know, not for nothing, but those six forms of love can easily be applied to the "Mane Six" ponies of the current iteration of My Little Pony.....

Cynic's Summaries - Equestria Girls · 4:57am Dec 21st, 2013

In a surprise revelation, Sunset Shimmer, Celestia’s former student, who was too ambitious to grasp the power of friendship, returns from a self-imposed exile, seeking vengeance upon Twilight Sparkle. Years earlier, she vanished through a magical mirror which took her to a parallel world, quite similar to Equestria, but with multi-colored humans instead of ponies, and no magic to speak of.

Writer's Block · 7:41pm Nov 6th, 2013

Towards thee I troll,
Thou all-destroying but unconquering MS Word;
To the last, I spellcheck thee;
From Hell’s heart, I tab at thee;
For Hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at Clippy.
