I just wanna do a thing, make it cool, and get better at it. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

The Surprising Benefits of Just Showing Up · 7:57pm January 5th

I'm trying something new this year. Aptly enough, I started it as a New Years Resolution. I resolved to, among working out and practicing music, write every day. I had hoped that it would help me actually make progress on the stories I've had languishing unpublished in my folders for years now, and it has. What I didn't anticipate is how effective it would be for fighting through writer's block.

Fighting to Take Back My Mind · 12:32pm Mar 10th, 2019

I've found I'm less creative when I watch videos in the morning. I've woken up with a wonderful idea, but with each successive video I watch I can feel the ideas draining away, and the motivation being sapped.

Until, at the end, the only thing I feel motivated to do is watch more videos.

Plot Armor does what now? · 1:30am Sep 9th, 2017

I know it's kind of a trope, and people are using it less now, but I still see Plot Armor come up every now and then so I thought I'd put my two cents in on the subject.

When a character has Plot Armor it's generally taken that they are invaluable to the story and thus we can feel safe in the assumption that they will be around until the end. I would argue that that is largely true-- with one caveat: Plot Armor makes one invaluable to the story but beatings still apply.

The Show, Walls, and Other Things · 1:44am Dec 9th, 2015

So I sat down to (finally) start catching up on season 5 and I've noticed that, in this season more than others, I've a hard time getting through some episodes. Now at first I thought it was because I hate it when characters do something stupid, though I do maintain that it is terrible shame when such things happen, but while watching the first Big Mac/Apple Bloom scene in Brotherhooves Social I realized something. What I often defined as 'stupidity' was when characters seemed to open

Premature Shipping · 8:29am Jan 26th, 2015

Something I've noticed that I abhor in stories is shipping without support. Where two characters without an established history, usually an OC and one of the Main 6 in the case of MLP, are shown to be romantically involved. This usually goes along the lines of: An OC is introduced and shown to be Interesting/unique for some reason ==> We receive a scene and some background info on the OC ==> The Main 6/Pony In Question is called in for whatever reason ==> Quickly followed by a

Finding Paradise (There She Is!!) · 4:42pm Jan 20th, 2015

So I found the animation There She Is!! today, the story that Derp She Is!! PMV was based off of and I couldn't help but love it! I'm not sure why I'm throwing words at you all, I just had to express how amazing this was. The story is told almost entirely without words (at least ones I can understand) but it's very easy to to see what's going on

Looking to the Future: Hope and Heartache · 8:02am Sep 23rd, 2014

Everything that has a beginning, has an end. As the waves lap the shore slowly does the beach wash into the ocean until, while the sun sets one final time, we stare into the blackening void and think upon what we have left behind.

The Power of Ponies · 5:57am Aug 2nd, 2014

So I just finished the fic Rainbow Typhoon (which is a really good fic and you should read it) and it got me thinking.

The Changing Empires · 10:54pm Mar 27th, 2014

I was browsing youtube and I found the This Day Aria - Colt and Mare Duet

And I had a Thought:
Princess Cadence is kidnapped by Queen Chrysalis so she can take Shinning Armor.

King Metamorphosis replaces Shining Armor at the same time to control the Princess of Love.

Each assumes that the other is the real pony and the efforts they make to control their counterpart is a normal action they simply didn't notice before the switch.
