New Fic! · 6:27pm May 15th

In keeping with the teaser I posted a while back, I have published my latest fic, The Once and Future Queen. It stars a throwback to the absolute earliest era of recorded Pony History -- decades before even Star Swirl and the Pillars -- but it takes place in modern Equestria. It will have thrills, chills, spills, and multiple musical numbers. I hope you all enjoy it!

Looking Ahead · 2:55pm January 2nd

Happy New Year, gang!

As we take yet another spin around the sun, I am focusing on the road ahead and its potential. Places to go, people to see, things to do, and fics to write. My output the past few years hasn't been great, but I'm still here and still doing my best to put out quality fanfics for the discerning enthusiast of fictional multi-coloured equines.

Buddy Boost! · 4:11am Jun 6th, 2017

I wanted to take a moment to give a signal boost to my dear fellow writer Patchwork Poltergeist, whose excellent fic The Silver Standard just updated.

It seems the new site overhaul did something terrible to the math, and without any change in her statistics her story plummeted down the rankings -- undeservedly, if you ask me.

History Repeats: Retrospective · 2:13am Apr 24th, 2017

Having passed the fourth anniversary of first posting one of my favourite works recently and having been asked about a sequel, I took the time to look back at History Repeats and explore my old notes and files and unused concepts.

Consider what follows the break to be potentially spoileriffic, and also to be a Blu-Ray Director's Commentary on some of the hidden jokes and references and deleted bits and pieces that didn't make the cut...

Ask Saddlesoap: Resurrection: Awakening: Electric Boogaloo · 10:58pm May 22nd, 2016

So, it's been ages and ages since I opened up the floor to the teeming masses of the pony-focused internet -- I figure it's time to see if anypony's still out there!

Have a question about fic writing? About my stories? About my thoughts on characters, episodes, pony society, and so forth? Hit me up in the comments.

Boosting! · 6:21pm Mar 2nd, 2016

Just taking a moment to signal-boost a fine piece of fiction by one of my writing buddies.

Patchwork Poltergeist's Latest Story is a smoothly written and mature look at a couple I am sure some fans have trouble lending any legitimacy to. It's adult in the grown-up sense, and romantic in a seasoned and realistic way as opposed to the sometimes overwrought passions of younger sorts.

(Beneficial) Conspiracy Theory! · 7:21am Sep 27th, 2015

So, after watching the third Equestria Girls movie and seeing what transpired, a thought occurred to me. Spoilers for that film below, so be warned...

Mini-Reviews: Season Five: Part Two: First Blood: Resurrection · 4:52am Jul 13th, 2015

Okay, so, here we go again! Several more reviews, taking us all the way to the midseason nano-hiatus. As before, I have included a brief review of each episode, followed by any wishful thinking on what I personally would have liked to have seen in the episode. Enjoy!

Mini-Reviews: Season Five Thusfar · 9:27pm May 17th, 2015

Well, I must say that after that incredibly long hiatus, the show seems to have only improved - which is a serious relief.

The gradual inclusion of more and more continuity and episode shoutouts and callbacks has allowed the episodes to have a more natural, realistic feel, and to explore more character-focused, personalized lessons in comparison to the relatively generic Aesops seen more often in earlier seasons.

Miniature Baked Goods with Frosting · 6:45am Jan 26th, 2015

So, as some of you may be aware, I am participating in the EQD More Most Dangerous Game fic contest, and I ended up picking Cupcakes as the inspiration for my story.
