The simple question of "How you guys doing?" ain't as prosaic as it used to be.

This is cool, new, and fits the mood

These last couple months of Coronavirus & related precautions have been like visiting a parallel reality. IMO it's not the "darkest timeline" that people joke about, but I sure miss the timeline that we splintered from back in March.

Echoes in the Well, pt.3 · 3:43pm February 29th

I know. "Again? Who cares! It's cut stuff from an old fic!"

I've realized something, though, as I've been gathering this up: I'm doing this for me. I'm laying something to rest. I'm letting go of a lingering sense of what might-have-been, which in its own way is a part of the story of what ended-up-being.

Maybe it's even the last part of the story.

Echoes in the Well, pt.2 · 12:48pm February 28th

As I mentioned last time: there's a mountain of cut content from To Serve In Hell, including some nuggets that I very much regretted having to take out. I've already shared a couple of those stronger moments with you, and discussed the thought process that lead to both adding and ultimately removing them.

Echoes in the Well, pt.1 · 5:19am February 27th

To Serve In Hell generated over 20,000 words of cut content, representing more than a fifth of its final length. Not all of it is fit for presentation. However, a few bits still strike me as memorable or interesting, and I'd like to take a moment to share a couple of them.

There are spoilers ahead... but at this point I figure most people who are going to read Hell have already done so. For anyone else, maybe this'll spark some interest?

One Year Later · 12:40am Dec 23rd, 2019

Yesterday was the first anniversary of Hell’s completion. True to form, I sat down a couple days ago to write something deep, significant, and retrospective. And just as true to form, that effort flamed-out into a hangdog bloodletting of pain and trauma which no one frankly needs to read.

Three Conversations at BronyCon, pt.1: Part Bird, Part Stone, All Alicorn · 11:37am Sep 17th, 2019

Before I dig in here, I want to apologize for being late with my BronyCon recap. BronyCon was a juggernaut that slammed into some Real Life™ stuff that responded poorly to disruption. I do not regret going, but it caused some fires that needed fighting. Fortunately those are a bit better contained now, allowing me to reflect on it with a clearer mind.

One other warning: there be pics here. Not a ton, but don't taser me if your data plan notices.
