All the various little follow-ups and reviews I've done.

Project Lead & Creative Director of The Manehattan Project (plus about fifteen other things).

I'm really just a writer who was forced into different types of creation because of an injury in January of 2015. Now, I'm finally at the point where I can actually read again without pain (under specific circumstances) and have decided to embark on my own series of tales in a unique little timeline starring my favorite pony, Sunset Shimmer (okay, okay, she ties with Twilight).

I also love doing cover designs for the various FimFiction stories. I have this OCD thing about all books on my iPad requiring a vertical-style cover (I blame Twilight and Rarity). I always use the existing artwork the author has selected as a base and then work from that. If you're interested in getting some cover design work done, send me a message!

Other than that, I keep an obsessively organized series of bookshelves of my favorite stories, which tend to be completed comedies, romances and adventures. If you've wandered by to wonder why I just spammed you with fifteen bookshelf adds, well, it means I liked your story. A lot.

I also enjoy writing insanely long, rambling, convoluted follow-ups to my favorite stories around here. Because, you know, I don't have enough to do already.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment!

Feel free to contact me by PM and I'd be happy to go over the details with you! :twilightsmile:

I see you do cover arts. One question-What the condition/s for it?

2520112
Well, I need to know when best to nibble say hi. :twilightsheepish:

Thank you for stalking following me:pinkiecrazy:
I’m happy to be somebunny worth keeping an eye on :scootangel:

2517921
And what might that be? :pinkiegasp:

Hap

I'm picking up on a common thread in your stories...

2517889
Thank you! And I have no idea how to do that, sadly (because there are plenty of authors who deserve it and don't get it!) :twilightoops:

Can I steal your talent? Please? I just wanna be featured ONCE! :raritydespair:

(Also gz on another feature.)

2507775
Hahaha! Like I wasn't going to fave another great concept piece of you exploring psychological or cultural imperatives about Equestria. :twilightblush:

Now it seems I owe you thanks for a fave as well as a cover! Thank you! :twilightsmile:

2507332
Yeah, I definitely did! I loved the concept of each interest being her own season. I may have also died a little from cute when Sunset started jumping up and down crying "I did it!" after catching her first apple. And giggled like mad every time Sunset berated herself with something along the lines of "bad brain!" But the concept that ponies have an innate psychological imperative to give and to need affection and love? That was... amazing. Yeah, knocked my socks off. Definitely well deserved!

Wow, you really liked The Fourth Season, eh? Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for the honorable mention!

2478058
Yours? Yours got two. Couldn't quite one-shot them. Didn't crit hard enough. :pinkiehappy:

2478045
So you're saying you gave my short story... one shot? :trollestia:

2477822
Oh, don't worry. I made sure to give every single contest entry a shot! :twilightsmile:

Thank you for finishing reading my Raritwi stories.

I'd have been concerned if you'd only managed to read part of them. :derpytongue2:

Fallout equestria is awesome.
