Side Note on Time Scales and Canon Compatibility · 4:50am May 29th, 2015

I would think this would be somewhat self-evident, but in case it needs further clarification. Heart of Loyalty is diverges from the end of season 3, with Cadence's letter to Celestia happening right before Celestia was about to mail of Starswirl's journal and kick off MMC. Then Tomorrow Came and Heart of Loyalty treat seasons 1 and 2 as occuring over roughly a year each, with season 3 being somewhat less than a year. This will continue to be the case despite the patently nonsensical attempt

TV Tropes Page for Then Tomorrow Came · 2:25pm Mar 23rd, 2015

As some of you may know I browse through TV Tropes somewhat regularly, leading to a substantial amount of intentional trope use and lampshading within both Then Tomorrow Came and Heart of Loyalty. I've been pretty interested to know which ones people have spotted (or even which ones they noticed that I wasn't even aware of). To this end, I finally stopped lurking, made an actual account, and started the bare bones of a page for Then Tomorrow Came

Can anyone translate this feedback? · 9:17am Mar 23rd, 2015

So after a long LONG overdue polish and reformatting of Then Tomorrow Came, I decided to try resubmitting to Equestria Daily. I had attempted once long ago, but it kinda got lost in the system, and with the giant purge and strike forgiveness happening a while back, I figured I'd send it back in. Pre-reader got as far as chapter 4 before bouncing it back with the following feedback.

Long overdue edits. · 2:38pm Mar 20th, 2015

So I finally went back through every chapter of Then Tomorrow Came and chopped all the walls of text into more bite sized paragraphs since I had no idea what I was doing when it came to formatting back then. I fixed the worst of Lavender Unicorn Syndrome (or in my case ____ Pegasus Syndrome). No changes to the plot. No significant changes that require you to reread it. Just a few edits to make things flow a little smoother and look a bit nicer.

Ponies and Swearing · 8:46am Feb 20th, 2015

Just an observation as I look over what I have written so far of the next chapter. As time goes on, I seem to be hitting an upward trend in frequency and intensity of ponies swearing (not sanitized pony versions either, Bucking is for trees people). I considered adding a tag for language, but there isn't one. I know some people write stuff into their description for T rated stories, since the sex and gore tags only seem applicable to M stories that are straight up clop or graphic

How did that get so popular? · 12:25pm Jan 2nd, 2015

So I was messing around with the statistics button on stories, seeing that it now shows what number the story is ranked overall on the site. I don't know the details behind how anything is calculated, but I've heard the system is not without its flaws, so I take such rankings with a grain of salt. I skim through my two big stories. Then Tomorrow Came at 14,077th Heart of Loyalty at 8,820th Okay, fine, whatever. I don't know what that's out of total, but it seems alright. Then I check

Update (Still Doing Science, Still Alive) · 9:00am Oct 13th, 2014

For those curious, yes I have actually been able to get some writing done on the next chapter of Heart of Loyalty. It's going to be a respectably sized chapter as well, as it is already sitting at 6900 words. I finished writing all the Twilight scenes, and there's certainly enough to publish as a chapter on its own, but there were a few other concurrent plot threads I wanted to work on, and it would look dumb if I shove all that into a later chapter and have to jump back in time for them.

Doing Science · 8:00am Jun 26th, 2014

So I'm not writing at the moment because I'm deep in the depths of work for my masters thesis. Since my adviser is crazy, he's signing us up for a conference in Vancouver in the fall that requires us to send at least a preliminary abstract by mid July. This means that I have to essentially do all of my data collection, something that usually takes people the better part of a year, in one month (maybe two weeks given that things aren't going terribly smoothly with the method development). So

While you're dying I'll be still alive. · 8:39am Apr 11th, 2014

So chapter 2 is nominally complete (deciding if I want to add an extra scene in the middle) and in the editing phase. Unfortunately my editor seems to be as dead as I am and is currently MIA. I'm trying to press-ganging my sister and a facebook friend who have actually read Tomorrow, to at least throw their eyes across it for a brief pre-read in search of any major problems. No matter what happens, I'm positively posting Chapter 2 before I leave for BABScon, so Wednesday night at the

I'm doing science and I'm still alive... · 10:55am Feb 24th, 2014

Sooooo.....It's almost a year now since anyone heard from me. I....really don't have much of a proper excuse. I got distracted? Really though, it's not been nearly that bad, I've found plenty of other things to waste my time with. It's more that I've been avoiding writing for some reason, just every time I sit down I end up doing something else. I went so long that I significantly lost my connection to the story and what I was even trying to do with it. I considered scrapping it entirely,
