I haven't been on this site as much as I use to because of real life distractions. Not all of the distractions have been good, but the good ones are truly amazing.

Pony Life is a regression to Season One · 2:51pm Jun 28th, 2020

Maybe it's just because the MLP stop-motion shorts lowered my expectations, but so far I think Pony Life is okay. I wouldn't call it good, but at least it doesn't directly insult older fans the way Thundercats Roar does (or so I've heard). I enjoy Pony Life's animation style enough to recommend watching five minutes of it. Plus, there is actual dialog spoken by the same VA's from FiM, and they put much more effort into their lines than the script writer did. I even like how this seems to be an

When Cozy Met Tirek PREVIEW · 6:19pm May 16th, 2020

When started writing my Cozy Glow origin story (which went through two title changes) for the Depth in Innocence contest, the deadline was so distant that it kept slipping my mind. On Mother's Day, I checked the contest rules to see how much time I had left, and noticed that the deadline to sign up for the contest had already passed.

Oops.

What's the deal with Cozy in Marks for Effort? · 9:09pm May 2nd, 2020

Halfway through writing my fanfic that focuses on Cozy Glow's backstory, I re-watched “Marks for Effort” to get a better feel for the character. This was my first time seeing the episode after watching everything that came afterward, and it didn't help me understand the character any better than I had before. Viewed in this new context, Cozy's characterization in this episode seems like it was designed primarily to trick the audience. I'm legitimately not sure if she really needed help

Update in the Crazy Times · 11:03am Apr 20th, 2020

In the past few days I've had an increase of views, to the point where I wondered if one of the site admins had given me a plug. Apparently people just have more time to catch up on their Read It Later lists. So thanks to those of you who read my fanfics.

My Baby Pony · 1:32am Feb 26th, 2020

I 've known about the stop motion shorts for a few weeks, and I finally watched one a couple of days ago to see how bad it was (specifically, it was “Cake Off”). And . . . Yeah, it was bad, folks. It wasn't even a preschool show. This was a show for babies. There was just giggling, laughing, crying, and no dialog. The short technically had a plot, but it was very simple and without substance. It's the equivalent of making funny faces and noises to try to get a baby to laugh. I'd say this was a

Fanfic plans · 12:17pm Dec 23rd, 2019

I'm thinking about entering the Go Big or Go Home AppleDash writing contest. Usually I enter writing contests only if I already have a fanfic idea that loosely fits the contest theme. I didn't have an idea that would fit this theme, but for the opportunity to win a decent cash prize, I decided to come up with a new idea. And . . . I'm not sure if my fanfic will be one of the strongest entries, since my story

I'm making progress on the next chapter of “Earth Ponies Are Blessed With Suck,” and I'm going to try to finish it by the end of the month. After that there will be one more chapter, unless it goes longer than I expect.
