Somewhere in the USA. Probably older than you. And something about MLP:FIM makes me want to write stories. Unfortunately, being gainfully employed cuts into my writing time.


An idea for Wallflower Blush · 6:59am February 26th

(I assume, by this time, you've seen Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship; spoilers follow.)

The character of Wallflower Blush is an interesting one. A shy person with a history of awkward and embarrassing social interactions, she finds a magic stone that lets her erase these bad memories. But that erases all the memories from those encounters, which means every day she has to make these same initial awkward introductions.

New story · 12:14pm February 9th

I learned about Aragon's comedy contest when an extension to February 9 was announced. And I decided to give it a try.

I managed to waste the time I had over the weekend, which meant most of the story was written yesterday. But it's done, and posted.

The story involves Cheerilee's class, in particular the Crusaders, Diamond Tiara, and Silver Spoon, and I got to write Scootaloo saying "Here. Hold my apple juice."

Give it a look!

How I'd fix the movie · 4:43am Oct 17th, 2017

The MLP movie left a lot to be desired. So, since everyone's had a chance to see it (right?), I thought I'd discuss my thoughts.

The Mane 6
Twilight Sparkle: Season 1-2 neuroticism
Pinkie Pie: Season 1 zaniness
Rainbow Dash: Chaotic Stupid
Rarity: Actually decent
Fluttershy: Unused
Applejack: Unused

To start, the main cast struck me as being stuck in the series' past. And there was also talk about four alicorns, when there are five now. Can we please be consistent?

AOL Instant Messenger going away · 9:18pm Oct 7th, 2017

Yes, I used it, and dialup with my 56k modem, back in the day.

I mention this here because in one of my stories, AIM was the bridge used to open a portal to Equestria. So we'll now have to find other ways to get there.

Such terrible news · 1:47am Jun 29th, 2017

It turns out I live in a racist town.

I went out for a walk along one of my city's fine walking trails, and what do I see but this sign?

Now, I can see wanting to keep motorized traffic off the trail; it is a walking and biking trail, after all. But why ban our pony friends? They're certainly not bringing cars!

Wedding bells · 12:17pm May 17th, 2017

In the next story in my humans in Equestria series, Jason (seen first in Following Through) is getting married. His brother, the best man, now gets to experience the joys of becoming a pony.

The story will update once a week for as long as chapters are ready. I've written up through the bachelor party. :rainbowwild:

The Best Man

Them nuts · 12:39am Apr 16th, 2017

"Them nuts sure do smell good." -- Granny Smith in Season 7 Episode 2

Length of time until that line appears in a trollfic?

Revenge on the IRS · 5:38am Apr 11th, 2017

After writing a large check to the IRS, I'm going to respond by writing a story sending an IRS agent to Equestria.

That actually does happen in the next story I'll be submitting, though it was planned long before I filled out my tax forms. It's a short story using the characters from my ongoing series of HiE stories.

And since Tax Day is almost here, I'll submit the story on April 18 (when taxes in the U.S. are actually due this year, since April 15 is a Saturday).

New story · 2:37pm Nov 9th, 2016

If you're feeling in a dark mood this morning, I posted a dark story. It was originally a contest entry for the Transformations group, and includes transformations and Fluttershy.

Election Day · 9:05pm Nov 8th, 2016

It's Election Day in the U.S. On such a day, I spend the evening isolated from the ongoing tally--no television, no Internet--and write horse words. Only late in the evening do I finally look and see the bad news.

Last even year election day, the story I wrote was Election Day. Because every election needs a heaping load of Discord added to it.

Tonight, I'll work on a future story. Appropriately, it involves government agents.
