Quick December Update (in case I vanish) · 9:29pm Yesterday

Hey, writing this mostly to try and get some stress out and also just as an advisory. Got a city inspection and landlord thing coming up with less than 24 hours warning, and to be honest this place is sort of falling apart. I'm hoping that it'll be mostly a cursory inspection and we'll be done, but if I go silent for a while it might be because I'm not in a place where I can easily post.

So typical news from me, really. Always great, all the time.

Reconnecting with Old Friends · 1:59am July 31st

So I thought today would be a good day for happier news. Goodness knows there's enough negativity in the world and drama around horse websites. I also just wanted to let people know about a secret project I've been working on.

Nothing big, just a life update. · 1:03am July 11th

So, just a quick blog.

I've been thinking about it for a few months now, and after a significant amount of soul-searching I've decided gender is bullshit and I don't like 'em. Not one bit. They're fine for other people but like olives on pizza I just tolerate it without complaining instead of enjoying them the way other people do.

Pineapple on pizza is valid, by the way. Anyone who believes otherwise is not welcome in Flavortown.

Use of Force · 9:40pm June 7th

You know, I don't write a lot about myself. Mostly that's because I'm an incredibly shy person in real life, not because I want to be mysterious. To some extent I even feel like writing about myself is sort of the worst kind of vanity. That said, I want to just relate a short story about something that happened to me a few years ago, about the first time I saw a man get shot to death. It seems relevant in these times.

I don't usually do this, but with all the world events going on I felt like being cheeky and giving a preview of a fic I've been working on:

Commission Updates and Spooktoberfest Slots! · 3:52pm Oct 16th, 2019

Hey there everyone! Just throwing out a quick update on the commissions I've been working on. There are exactly two left that I'm still working on - one is some sweet Fluttershy and Sunset shipping, and the other will involve Tempest Shadow trying to lead a quiet life. Expect to see both of those before the end of the month!

Machina Cor Armageddon: Halfway there! · 4:19pm Sep 26th, 2019

We've now reached the halfway point on MCA, a story I wrote entirely to get ideas out of my head and onto paper. We'll be taking a short break with it to focus on commissions and we'll return with Season Two, hopefully by November. Practically the whole story has been written, though it could use a little editing and I'll need to work up the chapter covers - but I do those covers for fun, so that's no burden. :twilightblush:

Commission Status Updates! · 12:49am Sep 9th, 2019

Hello, everyone!

With the release of Turbo Fireteam Simulator I wanted to make a blogpost with my current progress on my various commissions in progress. Titles are of course all my own in-progress code-names for the fic. This should give everyone an idea about how far along I am, and I'll try to make updates as I go along:

Emergency Commissions · 7:04pm Aug 20th, 2019

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, the problem with having a fixed income is that when something comes up you don't have a way to deal with it. The last month has seen the birth of my niece (healthy, thankfully!) and a lot of bills coming do. Unfortunately one of those is the rent, which is significantly past due at this point. As such, I find myself in the position of having to ask for help again to make sure I can keep my landlord from kicking me to the curb.
