Can I Get There By Rainbow Light? Yes, There And Back Again · 5:22pm Oct 11th, 2019

"Unicorns are for beginnings," he said, "for innocence and purity, for newness. Unicorns are for young girls."

Molly was stroking the unicorn's throat as timidly as though she were blind. She dried her grimy tears on the white mane. "You don't know much about unicorns," she said.”
-- The Last Unicorn, Peter S. Beagle

New Story: Love, And Other Felonies · 4:59pm Mar 1st, 2019

There are several things I learned these past two months. I learned that it's worthwhile and fun to try something new (several things* in this case), I learned the processes of dictatorship, I FINALLY learned how to write Rainbow Dash, but most of all I learned to just stop trying to guess how long a story is going to be because if I say "I'm going to just write something about 10,000 words" I'm going to end up with a goddamn 27,000 word novella. A novella I wrote TWICE because the first draft

I Still Don't Write Monsters or: Garbagehorse Empathy That’s Probably Undeserved But I’m Doing It Anyway · 6:14pm Dec 16th, 2018

Note: this was originally a tumblr blog in February 2018, written in a fit of hormonal pathos, sleeplessness, and empathy, saved here for posterity because tumblr's eating its own head tomorrow. It's raw and rambles and just restates a bunch of stuff I've already said in previous blogs, so feel free to ignore it.

The Silver Standard, Version Zero: A Retrospective, Sorta · 3:20am Apr 17th, 2018

As I’m sure most of you are aware by now, The Silver Standard finished yesterday last week a week and a half ago (darn you, work-induced procrastination). I originally planned on a longer retrospective of how long it took us to get here, let you in on some old notes, and spell out a couple of theses on characters and the obtuse floriography symbolism that I threw in because it’s my fic and nobody can stop me.

Equestrian Nobles Aren't a Thing: An Overdue Schedule Update Disguised as Headcanon Dump · 5:38am Mar 3rd, 2018

They just aren't. At all.

Not to say Equestria doesn't have nobility* at all, it's just that they aren't an established Thing. They're not a class. You need an actual population of nobility for that, and as of now, there are only seven of them: the four Princesses, Shining Armor, Flurry Heart, and Blueblood. All (except maybe Flurry) have titles and an official status.

New Story: With Your Shield Or On It · 8:51pm Jan 26th, 2018

Gentle readers! I wrote some new words with ponies in them!


Props to my man SaddlesoapOpera who really came through with that night edit from Camp Everfree. I honestly forgot this used to be a daytime shot.
