One last story to tell · 4:09am Nov 19th, 2014

I know I said earlier that I had no plans to write anything else relating to Body And Mind. However, now that I've thought about it, there's one last chapter I want to write.

Queen Papilio, as the successor to Chrysalis, is an extremely important factor that will shape changeling society. It doesn't seem right to limit her presence in the story to a couple of off-hand mentions, so the new chapter will be a scene featuring her.

Why we write changelings the way we do · 5:00am Oct 11th, 2014

Fanfic authors have a good amount of leeway in how they write changelings without going against canon -- at least, as far as the show's concerned. I haven't really read the comics. They invaded Canterlot, they got blown away by magical love beams, and they weren't mentioned again. Whatever authors decide to go with, they have their reasons, and since I know many of my readers have their own headcanons, I thought it'd be interesting to share.

Sorry, no sequel planned · 3:15am Aug 9th, 2014

I've already had multiple people ask me this, so rather than try to address every single comment individually, I felt it best to make this a blog post.

Why I dislike "rationalist fiction" · 2:45am Jul 29th, 2014

To begin with, I don't have anything against rationality. I mean, it only makes sense. Measure things as accurately as you can, plan for contingencies, learn how things work so you can solve problems better.

Since people are making a fuss about this · 2:57am Apr 11th, 2014

When I signed onto Fimfiction this evening, I happened to notice that Body and Mind had its dislike count spike overnight. Then someone linked me to a certain blog post, and all became clear.

Am I the only one? · 2:14am Mar 5th, 2014

Am I the only one who watches a scene like this:

and imagines myself in the position of some poor office worker who thinks he's going to put in an ordinary day on the job, only to find himself writhing and gasping as he bleeds out with a chestful of 9mm?

I guess it might have something to do with having watched this video during workplace orientation:

Where the hell has Starman Ghost been? · 2:14am Jan 10th, 2014

I'm sure it hasn't escaped people's notice that the most recent chapter of Body And Mind has had the longest delay of any since I first put up the story.

To start with, thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding over my hiatus. I know a lot of people have been following Body And Mind and it's hard when an author suddenly stops a story.
