    I've been quiet lately because I have been busy. Some of my busy-ness has been story-related. :twilightsmile:

    I have a number of stories nearing completion. I may enter Jake's obscure shipping contest (which ends Friday), so you might not see anything from me until then.

Other Stories I've Written

New Stuff
Motherly: Chrysalis comes of age with the help of her mother's "love".
Mission of Mercy: Fluttershy uses a unique approach to save a stranger.
Thorax the Red-Nosed Bughorse: several parody carols (I even sing)!

Very Short Stories
Page Two: a dark war-drama featuring Celestia and Luna.
Happily Ever After*: a semi-sweet minific about the price of happiness.
One Head of Cattle: a dark slice-of-life about Twilight Sparkle and a cow.
Polyphileos: a mildly bawdy comedy, at Fluttershy's expense.
Don't Say It: a tragic Sparity shipfic (I like it, but most readers don't).
Escaping Treatment: a dark, tragic drama where Twilight "cures" Screwy.
Tiara's Testament: this one is very dark and sad, so reader beware.

Incomplete Works (still updating)
Veneer: a story about what happened to the changelings after Season 6.
Twilight's Secret Journal (M): nopony should ever read this story.

Complete, but Controversial
Ashes: a sequel to The Knight and the Knave that wasn't as popular.
Recycled: my lowest-rated story, yet it's one of my favorites!
Back to Normal: readers threatened to boycott me over this one.

Congrats on making the RCL :yay:

Thank you very much for deciding to become my follower, my friend. :heart: I appreciate your support and your word of advice. :twilightsmile:

I noticed while checking my old pmail that we had conversed previously, and you don't maintain an overactive blog so it's not an imposition. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the watch! What prompted it, if I may ask?


But seriously...

I think the irony here is that shades of dark brown are the most common colors for a horse. Just not for rainbow people.

I mean, Luna is nearly black in MLP. In EQG she's almost white:

That's an unedited screencap. I'm not even going to bother mentioning Celestia...


Jesus Christ you were right about them all being caucasian
