Back from the final Bronycon, more on that later. In the meantime, enjoy some horsewords. Bonus points for reading aloud.

Beneath a blackened sky, the pale milky moon cast a pallid glow across lands steeped in shadow.  A sea of muted grey from mountains thrust high, to plains fertile and fallow.

The struggles of half-assed fic research · 5:47am Jul 14th, 2016

So here I was, minding my own business. I can't get two lines into a new story without having to stop and try to figure out a cooler sounding name than "Castle of the Two Pony Sisters"

THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENS

The final supper of the ficwhores · 6:21am Jul 12th, 2016

The hot humid musk of Baltimore suffocates you like God's enormous unwashed ballsack the moment you step out the door. A sea of brick beckons the journey of a thousand steps between the gleaming glass zoo of migratory humans and the organic hive of stone and streets known as Charm City. You put your best foot forward, feeling it stick slightly against the pervasive brownish ichor of regurgitated alcohol and caramelized human waste. Once more unto the breech, you think sympathetically of

A tale of two pegasi. · 5:37am May 12th, 2013

(Wrote a few thousand words today. Here's some of them. CH16 inbound)

* * *

It was a slow day in Ponyville.

It couldn't be fast enough for Scootaloo.

The wind whipped through her fuchsia mane as the grass receded behind each sharp stamp of her hooves.  Her short wings buzzed as they bit into the air, pushing herself with every erg of energy she could muster.  

Tap tap tap.

The Sledge · 3:32am Apr 3rd, 2013

(I'm not dead)

The Sledge.

Not to be confused with the sledgehammer, though one could easily make the tongue-in-cheek comparison.

The Sledge is like a sled. A sled for starships. Not that a modern starship needs such an anachronistic device from a time when interstellar travel was measured in decades and logistical resupply was measured in equally impractical numbers.

But one day, the Sledge had one very important, and very special purpose.

Candlelight. · 11:14pm Jan 15th, 2013

"Fluttershy. Hangar Six, please," the artificial Equestrian voice spoke softly in her ear.

She recoiled further beneath the rumpled mound of blankets, whimpering softly through short sharp breaths.

"Fluttershy, please." the electronically tinged voice repeated. It spoke nearly perfect Equestrian, with a subtle mimicry of Trent's vocal inflection.

"This one is real," she broke the long silence.

Dornier snorted. "Ah, I shall assure you that they are all real. There is not a piece on this wall where I did not personally meet with the artist."

"No. Um, I'm sorry. It's just that I meant," she gestured at the scene within the small hardwood frame. "This was real."

"Perhaps you can enlighten me. Why do you say that one in particular, is real?"

This is a little excerpt from the upcoming chapter. Expect a few changes between here and there

"We're almost done! Just one last thing. Are you ready for this, Fluttershy?"

"I... Um, I think so." she smiled.

"That doesn't sound very enthusiastic. Come on, let's hear some excitement!" Trent clapped his hands together.

"Oh, um. Yaay?"

So much to write.. · 11:30pm Dec 6th, 2012

So little free time to actually do it.

The backlog of things to put to paper is starting to make me physically ill.

Sorry for the delay.
