Happy spooks to all pones out there. I'll get right into the Calendar, since there's not as much wild and reckless changes for this one. Thanks to all those who voted on the poll last month. The results suggest I should share information about stories I think I related to my usual writing, so I'll continue to do that in little ways.

Bibliography

I've been asked several times to explain what I've written. When you've got three million words published somewhere, it can get daunting to someone who has no idea how to approach it. I hope to be able to explain everything I've done here, in a way that's accessible for a new reader.

Originals

While most of what I've done on Fimfiction has been in the form of serial fiction with lots of sequels and side-stories, I've also told several stories that are complete narratives unto themselves. I'll resist going too long here, and restrict myself to a single sentence about each one.

Message in a Bottle
A hard-scifi adventure story that looks at what the future of human space exploration might look like, if one hapless probe landed on a place that looks like Equestria. At first.
Luna is a Harsh Mistress
The ongoing story of what would've happened if Nightmare Moon was banished to the moon with her entire invading army, instead of going by herself.
Second Sunset
What happened to the human Sunset Shimmer when the pony arrived on earth to take her place.
Through the Aurora
The ongoing story of a human programmer swept up into an atmospheric experiment to arrive in Equestria as a hippogriff and somehow find her way home again.
Elements of Harmony
When Starlight Glimmer rewrote the timeline, the consequences were a cascade of disasters that erased the peaceful Equestria that Twilight Sparkle knew. Somehow, she has to put everything back on her own.
Synthesis
Another hard-scifi, this one looking at a likely future of increasing IoT contentedness and augmented reality, in a world where every human is assisted by a an AI pony called a Synth that interfaces them with their digital world.
Friendship Abroad
A freak storm drops the Young Six in the United Kingdom, and relations with the locals quickly take a turn for the worse.
Voyage of the Equinox
An ongoing CYoA space adventure story about the first Equestrian interstellar voyage.
Strange Alchemy
A Noir investigator tracks down some of the strangest mysteries in Canterlot's seedy underbelly.
Secrets of the Mane Six
An urban fantasy story where Twilight discovers that her closest friends aren't what they seem.
Ultimatum
The history of Equestria is actually one fabricated by ancient human powers. Now they've returned to collect on their investment.

Last Pony on Earth Series

Perhaps my best known work on Fimfiction, this series begins as a survivalist fiction, telling the story of a former human who awakes transformed into a pony, practically alone in her former city. This series follows her and the other survivors over many years, as magic and technology change society in many different ways for the refugees who return from old earth.

Founders of Alexandria
The Eternal Lonely Day
Earth Without Us
Bedtime Stories

This series also includes a number of side-stories, which can be read anytime after Eternal Lonely Day. Each of them focuses on some specific aspect of the world, such as what Earth looked like during the period of changeling rule (Evoli Victorious), or what it might be like to return as a Breezeie (Little Problems). One tells the story of what the second collapse of civilization looked like, and what life became under the rule of a superhuman AI (Meliora). Knight of Wands is difficult to explain, and should be read last.

Friendship Is Optimal

This fan-universe within MLP lore chronicles one possible scenario of what the world might look like if the technological singularity occurred at the hooves of a AI designed to "satisfy human values through friendship and ponies." [See the original by Iceman here if you haven't].

I come from a Computer Science background myself, and at first I was driven by a desire to see my own experience better reflected in the stories of this little universe (Futile Resistance). Then I wanted to tell the story of the people left behind in the first story (Broken Things), and touch on AR and some other emerging technologies the original left out.

Life Support tells the story of terminally ill children fighting for their chance to emigrate. After that, I wanted to talk about what someone with tons of money might do if they saw the end of the world coming (Momento Mori). Then I wrote about what Celestia might do with GPS devices to capture people otherwise reluctant to Emigrate (Recalculating). I'm currently writing about what pirates and hackers might do with Equestria, and what Celestia would do with them (Homebrew).

My Little Apprentice Series

This series represents my earliest writing on Fimfiction, though I'm still proud of this little story. My Little Apprentice tells the story of a desperate survivor arriving in Equestria from a post-apocalyptic earth. Her home isn't dead, though--the war goes on, between two deadly transhumanist factions. Will the conflict destroy Equestria as well?

Apogee
Perihelion
Harmony Defended

As time went on, this universe acquired a number of side-stories, which chronicle other parts of the world. One of those tells the story of Nightmare Moon's rise to power in this strange world of technological cross-contamination (Evening Star Also Rises), while another describe's Sunset's arrival on Earth (Steel Solstice) and her eventual contributions to the war (Sunset Campaign). A few tell other, more subdued stories, like Lyra's contact with humanity (Can you Hear Me Now) or what a post-war future might look like (Pax Humana).

Friendly Fire Series

This little series began its life as a quick contest entry, but grew into my first attempt writing a thriller story. It describes a world where Equestrian lore and magic is a hostile pattern, which transforms all humans who see it into creatures who can use magic themselves. It follows the twists and turns as various powers on Earth and Equestria fight over the future of mankind.

Casualties
Friendly Fire
Unwilling Recruit

A story taking place entirely in Equestria but showing the relationship between changelings and ponies in this world is also ongoing.
Child of the Invasion


The Last Migration

The deeply political story of Equestria's world divided by a catastrophic volcanic eruption, which pits Equestria against a hostile neighbor with far more experience in war.

Quick question, do you have a guide as to which of your stories have transgender themes?

It's rare that I find an author who uses the topic well, and I wish to consume them.

(Wish I'd taken the chance to do that myself while writing Pirene, given how central it is to my experience, but oh well.)

With your art skill you could open a twitter art page. Also COMPLETELY your choice dable in nsfw. People pay hardcore for that. Im sorry if this offends

I think it might be the narration style, if this was simply a POV story then it would make sense but its not, not really.

And very often i feel left out of the plot, with all this stuff happening out of sight, like this mystical and very ill defined magical society with their magic lords waiting in the dark.

I just feel like this story needs more background details and story, also the way he/she is overprotective of flurry is blatant mind manipulation and it doesn't seem to bother him much is kinda a constant annoyance to me.

World building.

This could be solved by making a big chapter from the POV of "Monday" where we get to see the magical world of the humans from the inside, a chapter of him getting out of the magic society place and to the plane/teleport//gate (or whatever he uses to travel) is just what we need.

Agreed. In fact, her inbox probably has a few notifications of me moving her stories to the waitlist, then reading list, and some of them to my seen/read and favorites list. That is if she hasn't found a way to turn those notifications off. I haven't.

I would put those stories in my master piece's list, though I can put my hoof on it, I feel there's just something missing from them, which is why they aren't in my master piece's list.
