Luna plays dress-up (part 1) · 3:02am Dec 3rd, 2012

Amid a field of short green grass, betwixt a fence of tall grey oaks, sat one small modest home. One of red brick and brown timber, worn by weather and weathered by wear. One faithful and longstanding residence to one longstanding and faithful resident.

Pensive pen strokes pressed against pale parchment. The prose, prosaic. The purpose, profound.

Some progress · 7:03am Oct 3rd, 2012

The stuffs for Chapter 16 are mostly in place, although I had some trouble figuring out a good opening. We do get back to Ponyville a few times to see the perspectives of certain characters, and how they're starting to view the world after their encounters with Trent.

In particular, their growing discontent with the decidedly utopian nature of Equestria.

A certain draconequus couldn't be happier.

Ch 15 and the luna excerpt are both coming along. In the meantime, here is a short story for your amusement.

Warning: Mildly humorous.

Chapter 15 is getting large enough that I'm considering splitting it into two chapters - but I'd probably rather have it finish up this little part of the story. I've managed to add a few thousand words over the last few not-quite-consecutive days, and most of the writers block has been left by the wayside.

There has been some work on Ch15. I will say that Flutters/Trent's dialogue on "why are we doing this exactly" have been difficult to write, but I've managed to bulldoze through that yesterday. In the meantime, I would like to submit this little piece for your review and contemplation. Some of you may have read it before, but there is a discussion afterwards that helps explain a few things in detail.

If you know your physics, I would like to hear your analysis.

"Are you excited? I've never been so excited!" she chittered happily, steak-knife fangs clacking together as her mouth twisted into the closest approximation of a smile.

We stopped to look. · 5:41am May 21st, 2012

We stopped to look. Oh god, we stopped to look.

The drive had been tuned past the limits of what was considered safe, much less even tested. But as it turned out, it wasn't the ship that was spinning. It was the galaxy behind us. Our Milky Way.

Wednesday. August 10th.

Whitetail Woods.


I am a coward. For this reason alone, I am alive.

My post was four miles inside Whitetail Woods. Three hours past midnight, I caught sight of something.

An eye. That was it. Staring at me from behind what seemed to be a thicket of branches.

I looked again, but it was gone. My post had been quiet for some time, and now was no exception, save for the sudden beating of my heart.

An interesting relevation. · 6:59pm Mar 21st, 2012

The bible did for the printing press, what porn has done for the Internet.

The irony is strong with this one..
