Tonight · 5:23am Nov 9th, 2016

Pretty gut-wrenching night.

Take care of each other, everyone. Be kind, be nice, try to counteract any hatred you see with love. When they go low, keep going high. Because it's the only way to make it through the next few years.

This isn't goodbye · 10:46pm Nov 3rd, 2016

So I figured I should give everyone a big update on where I’ve been, the lack of communication, what my life is like, things like that. Maybe get a snack, there’s probably going to be a lot of text. But I'll at least put in a few pictures of ponies to break things up a bit.


Like this perfectly Nor-Mall Horse Creature.

Quick notes · 6:27pm Sep 15th, 2016

Just thought I'd pop in and say a few very quick things:

-The final chapter of Of The Night will be published at the same time as the Epilogue. So there's two chapters left, Chapter 9 and Epilogue, but they'll be up at the same time.

-After Of the Night is done, I'll have a blog explaining where exactly I've been for much of 2016, why the story took so long, and my future. I assure you it's all good news, though!

Quick update (I swear I'm gonna get a decent schedule for Of The Night going) · 6:30pm Apr 20th, 2016

I know it's been a while, so I thought I'd do a very quick update.

I finished the next chapter of Of The Night 2 weeks ago, and sent it out to my editors. Unfortunately, every single one of them has been exceptionally busy lately with real life, and real life will always come before sparkly horse stories. I've ended up reaching out to a few other editors, who have thankfully been able to step in and look at the story this week. The goal is to get it posted this Saturday.

Mind the gap · 5:58pm Mar 15th, 2016

Of The Night, Chapter 2 is now published. Let's rejoin Night Glider as her journey continues!

I'd like to again apologize for how long it took to get this chapter up; a lot of things came up that I had to deal with first. All positive, mind you, but they took priority. Things like getting certified in laser cutting, working on projects for an awesome maker space in Seattle, and more business-related things.

#1 With An Apology · 5:50pm Feb 26th, 2016

Woke up this morning to find this:

I know that things like this are short-lived, and it's just an arbitrary number, but this still means a lot to me. Diary of an Evil Pony was a story that I had a ton of fun planning and writing, and seeing that others have really enjoyed it this much... seriously, thank you all. It really means the world to me.

Welcome to Of The Night · 11:03pm Jan 30th, 2016

After a lot of downtime and hype, Chapter 1 of Of The Night is officially live!

This is an idea I've had for a while. Of the Equal Four, I found Night Glider's design to be really appealing, yet we really didn't know much about her. Sugar Belle is a baker, Party Favor is great with balloons, Double Diamond is a skiier, and Night Glider is... a pegasus. Just like the hundreds of other pegasi we've seen on the show.

I've been lying to you all (well, kinda) · 12:28am Jan 30th, 2016

So for a few months, while I've been busy getting my new business set up (it's going great, more on that in another blog) and basically making a big life transition, I've been hyping my next big story, in much the same way I hyped Exit Through Canterlot.

I debuted the name of the fic after Do Princesses Dream Of Magic Sheep. Any mention of the story was accompanied by pictures of the moon. The fic was called OF THE NIGHT. It was pretty clear who I was referencing in these hints.

TheBrianJ Reviews - MLP Season 5 (Ranking the episodes!) · 12:15am Dec 13th, 2015

I’ll just go ahead and say it, this has been my favorite season of MLP yet.

There was a great over-arching story from start to finish (the cutie map being important in the premiere, finale, and several episodes throughout), as well as just an overall theme of cutie marks as a whole.
