Ice Star

🖤 i eat children 🖤

Extended Bio

I'm asexual. I literally don't give any fucks.

Okay, but really: who am I? I'm Ice Star, a writer of many words, semi-professional dudebro, avid reader, and G1/G4 horse fan. I sometimes review things (from stories to printed editions) in my blog. I'll even edit and pre-read. Most of my blogs are lazy trash made to keep you updated on random story things in between actual coherent posts, such as the aforementioned reviews and afterthoughts on my latest word behemoth. There are way more helpful links and info scattered throughout the rest of this page that you can find in the module below this one. The bottom of my page has a FAQ for reviewers, fan artists, audio readers, and anyone with general questions about things like story order.

Avatar was drawn by: MayhemMoth. Schadenfreude art by Eonlonic can be seen on my alt account. Gamma and Schadenfreude by GoGoGojirin on Twitter.

Latest Updates

Welcome friend (i.e. potential reader) to my page! Hopefully, you have gotten a chance to gaze upon the many, many stories that I have written! Do you see them all, and do they stir a primal fear in your soul? Apparently, despite how clearly I've marked things like sequels and side stories, that's still the case. While I don't mind answering questions about the way things should be read, I've gone to multiple lengths to make everything clear. This is the space where I can further clarify that for anyone who was still confused and needed to scroll to the bottom of my page.

So, as you browse my word vomit be sure to keep in mind the following things and you'll seriously, totally, 100% be fine, I promise:

1) A direct sequel is always linked using the sequel feature. They cannot be read as stand-alone works and that's probably why they're marked as sequels in the first place, dangus.
2) Stand-alone stories and side stories that don't require you to read previous stories are the exceptions, not the rule. These are always noted in the description, just so you don't have to ask.
3) Following the descriptions is always your friend. Main arcs have bolded credits in the description and other stories have plain italics.
4) While not all my stories are connected, many are. You absolutely don't have to read all of them (I'd like it if you could). Bear in mind that if you didn't get a smidge of worldbuilding, it's probably just from another story and that stories in my main continuity have the TVTropes page in the description. Feel free to ask anyway! That's what comments are for!
5) Optimal starting points are given at the top of my page.
6) If you're one of those people who is super nutty about the timeline of the connected stories (called the Iceverse) then please refer to this post, because it should solve all your problems.
7) If one lacks the common sense to understand these even after scrolling through my whole page, a modest blood sacrifice is in order.
8) Mature stories generally have a teen version linked as the 'sequel' and you can check the short description to find this status and the mod to annoy regarding this site rule.

Stuff You Don't Have to Ask Anymore:

Can I make an audio reading/drama of one of your stories?

Literally nothing is stopping you, so yes, of course, you may. Just please be sure to tell me that you are and link the reading in the description of the story you have done, or PM it to me. I will give it a blog shout-out and link it in my story properly. However, I ask that you reconsider reading some of my poetry because it often relies heavily on visual elements that don't translate in readings that well. If you think that you can do something to get around this, well, sure.

Can I translate one of your stories into another language?

Of course! Please just PM me. I'd like to be able to give a shout-out via my blog and link your translation to the story's page.

Can I draw fan art for one of your stories, or based on them?

Yes! Absolutely! Please, just tell me about your art piece so I can link it in blogs and story notes, post it everywhere screaming, etc. If you're asking because you would like references to a certain character, I might be able to provide them. As a doodler myself, I have drawings of most of the original characters, alternate character designs, and anything else that tends to appear in my stories. That, or I can provide notes of some kind if you really want those. Just please don't draw inflammatory, pornographic, fetishistic, or abusive content (rape, incest, and pedo shit) and expect me to appreciate it.

Can I review one of your stories?

Yeah, just ask? I mean, do you really need to ask for this one?

Can I write something based on one of your stories/a spinoff/fan installment thingo?

Yeppers. There's even a folder in my group for that. Like basically everything else here, you don't really technically have to ask to do most of these things. Just please don't write anything that I wouldn't want to see in a fan drawing based on my content, since I won't add it to my group or associate with it.
