    On the state of my soul

    A few weeks ago, I was idly scrolling through my usual feed of news, chatter and nonsense, and saw a headline:

    Neo-nazi mauled by lion

    I didn't read the article - I had no desire to know more details. But what arrested me was my reaction to seeing this headline: for a brief moment, I laughed. It was over in less than a second as the horrible reality of what the headline was saying reasserted itself, but that reaction has been bugging me ever since.

    Sneak peek at the beginning of Voyage of the E.Q.S. Ember.

    Facet fidgeted.

    “Stop that,” said the unicorn. “You don't want your space suit coming open, not this high.”

    “Yes, Sir,” said Facet quietly. Deprived of the distraction, he had little to do but look out over the edge of the platform. The lower part of the sky at least looked blue as it should. If he looked out horizontally, it was nearly black.

    On why the guard never seem to be there

    Luna burst into her sister's bedchamber. "Sister, what is't? Truly, I am not to blame for any nightmares that afflict thee."

    Celestia clutched her sweat-covered sheets to her barrel. She shook her head, breathless. "No, dear Luna, this was no mere nightmare."

    "Another premonition?" Celestia nodded. "Was't bad?"

    "One of the worst. I don't know how she's going to get through this one."

    Turns out I'm Irish

    Got home from the Czech Republic to find this had arrived. I now serve two masters. This means, when Brexit finally flushes Britain for good, I get to work in a country that still has an economy and some human rights.

    A journey of a thousand miles...

    • It is possible to drive 1,450 kilometres (900 miles) in a single day. I don't recommend it, though, and I think H (1) is quite insane for being willing, nay eager, to undertake it.

    On writing quality in the real world

    Due to a minor change in status, I was recently given an updated employment contract to sign. I'm sure most people would sign such a thing without looking at it, but I'm both pedantic and paranoid so I actually read the thing through, just to make sure it didn't do anything stupid - like forbid me from ever working for a competitor, or claim ownership of anything I create. Half an hour later, I handed the contract back - covered in red marks. Typos, bad grammar, organisational errors, broken

    UK anime convention

    I know this is a little off topic, so I won't make a habit of it.

    Some friends of mine are running an anime convention in November. They're all people who've been going to anime conventions for years and years, and wanted to give something back.
