A British Gentleman


I am a fan of many things, particularly the fine works of Sir Terry Pratchett (may he rest in peace). After spending a long time lurking, I have elected to create an account.

[Non Pony] When Good Music and Good Science Meet · 6:32pm February 8th

Greetings my good ladies and gentlemen, on this thoroughly miserable and rainy Thursday evening.

Presented with little additional commentary, a fine rebuttal to anyone who believes science to be joyless and without soul.

Fic Recommendation: Sparkle · 9:35pm January 15th

It's been quite a while since I last posted one of these, but here we are again. I might have been tempted to review this fic, rather than recommend, but it's early days yet. For now though, I have a recommendation, my good ladies and gentlemen.

On the Sad State of the British Press · 9:57pm January 10th

Greetings my good ladies and gentlemen on this chilly winter evening. May you be warm and toasty.

As we move into mid-January I feel inclined to look back at the year we have just escaped. With that in mind, I had a look through the last year's headlines. Sadly, one thing soon became apparent: the Daily Mail and the Sun can always be relied upon to live down to one's expectations. However low those expectations are, rest assured, they will find a way.

Response Dissonance: A Discussion on Anon · 8:41pm January 6th

Hello to you all, my fine gentlemen and lovely ladies, on this cool winter evening. I hope to find you well.

Recently, I have found myself reading a few Anon fics. A bad habit to get into, to be sure, and certainly not something I'd recommend. It is not good for one's mental health. The sad fact remains, however: Anon is now so prolific, he effectively forms his own sub-genre on site. He has his own tag, his own fans, and he just won't die.

Something Cool, to See Out 2017 · 7:31pm Dec 31st, 2017

Good evening, my good ladies and gentlemen.

Given my last blog, however necessary it may have been, was hardly anybody's idea of fun, I decided it was just the wrong note on which to end the year.

With that in mind, I have found a cool thing.

Signal Boost: Be Careful at Conventions [Read; Important] · 1:42pm Dec 31st, 2017

This isn't quite the blog I wanted to end the year with, but it is rather important. Horizon recently posted an important blog, detailing an incident he/she is aware of that occurred at Bronycon. Specifically, sexual assaults involving the use of date-rape drugs.

The blog in question is here.

In Despair of the Feature Box · 4:31pm Dec 26th, 2017

A fine and belated merry Christmas to you all, my good ladies and gentlemen. May you be well fed, well watered, and preferably somewhere nice and cosy.

In spite of my above sentiments, however, my own levels of merryness have taken a bit of a beating of late. You see, I keep looking at the feature box, and it keeps reminding me what a hopeless clusterf**k it is.

Good Netiquette 101: Don't (Really, Don't) be Part of Someone's Troll Army · 5:41pm Dec 22nd, 2017

A Merry Christmas to you all, my good ladies and gentlemen, as the holiday season approaches in earnest. I wish you many presents, treats, and much booze.

It's interesting to note how quickly a post online, be it a story, video or blog post, can turn into a complete and utter clusterf*ck.
