You know what? · 11:33am Apr 1st, 2014

I've been peckin' at this story for over half a year, and what do I have to show for it?
Trash.
Garbage.
Scraps.
I've got maybe half a chapter's worth of usable material, and it's not even the right chapter!
So you know what?
Screw it!
Screw Halo, I'mma write some clop.

My New Year's Resolution · 7:57am Jan 1st, 2014

Get back to work, and get stuff done.
Especially a certain unfinished story that has been gathering dust for far too long.

It's been a while, hasn't it? · 5:23pm Sep 12th, 2013

About four and a half months, if I recall correctly. Life's been more or less 'meh' for me, but I can't really complain.

But, on to the reason I'm writing this.
Simply put, I am officially putting My Little Halo on an indefinite hiatus. I don't even have an excuse; I just haven't been writing it. Other things popped into my head, and I went wandering off after them.

On Cutie Marks and Magical Theory, By A. Howitzer · 1:01pm Apr 30th, 2013


Hello! This is the part where I kill you explain the break-through in Cutie Marks and Magical Theory mentioned in the author’s notes of Chapter 21 of My Little Halo, which I puzzled out while writing said chapter and several before it. Be warned though: This is entirely headcanon and, as solid as it seems, it is subject to change as I find the need, and does not necessarily apply to other works or the show itself. In fact, it probably doesn't.

You FOOLS! · 10:26am Apr 1st, 2013

Can anyone guess why I don't like April Fool's Day?
Is it perhaps that all of my sites fritz themselves up for a day?
What about the fact that my stories all update at once with joke chapters?
Or how about some of them that update for real, forcing me to dredge through the muck to find the gems?

Seriously, who's idea was it to even have this moronic holiday?

More waffling on the rating issue · 4:31pm Mar 14th, 2013

I'm switching the rating back to Teen because, let's face it, Mature/Gore should be saved for things like Cupcakes or The Rainbow Factory (neither of which I've read, but you can't be a part of this fandom without learning about them).

That Bloody Line · 1:58am Nov 29th, 2012

Guys, I think I accidentally Mature Rating, but I'm not sure. It's such a fine line, you know?

The thing is, I can't tell if I've crossed it in these past few chapters. Do the Nightmare's actions qualify the story for a Mature rating? I mean I tried to tone it down, but it's still pretty brutal.
But is it gory? Should I up the rating? Please keep in mind that it isn't over yet, and there's only so much I can do to tone down war before it starts losing its meaning.

November 6th, a most disappointing day (NOT ELECTION RANT!) · 10:26pm Nov 7th, 2012

Yesterday, November 6th, 2012, was the release date for Halo 4. My anticipation for it rivaled my need for season 3, and I had set my preorder (for the limited eddition, no less) up all the way back in June! So imagine my despair when I went to pick up that most legendary of games, only to find that I did not have enough available funds to actually pay for it! I had the hundred dollars when I preordered it, and I thought that would be the end of it, but the money vanished like a desert

So EQD called... · 4:09pm Nov 3rd, 2012

...and I'm on my last strike.
Amid sundry one-time errors which I had overlooked(many of which are because FIMFiction won't copy formatting from Word, so I have to go through and manually add everything again), two major issues appeared which I can't fix on my own:

6) Comma over-use. You're stringing three or more in places. Re-word to reduce.

and

8) They're taking being pony-fied remarkably well. No panic? Really?

For those of you wondering about, I just read this. Specifically the part about military fiction.
