The Last Unicorn, chapter 13, for the third time · 8:08pm Last Tuesday

I was copy-pasting text from my posts on the Last Unicorn (here and here), and realized I never mentioned the consonance and assonance. Here's a bit of chapter 13 with that boldfaced:

Big Brother is Watching · 8:49pm May 18th

Yesterday, I went to see an orthodontist about fixing my terrible teeth. He sat down with my X-rays and proposed two options: a retainer, or aligners.

Fic rec: Grimm's "Applejack Digs a Hole" · 4:43am March 11th

I don't have time to write a decent review, so let me just say, Read Applejack Digs a Hole. It's a very sad story and a very happy story, sentimental without being the least bit sappy. If you want to know why I like it so much, you can read the parts on sentiment in Jedi Master Ed's Satire, Sex and Sentiment, and pretend they're

Fic recommendation: The Incognito Cart · 5:18pm February 26th

bahatumay posted a charming story yesterday, "The Incognito Cart", with a wonderful, and very show-like, premise: Pinkie Pie is running a covert, fully-anonymous baked-goods operation that provides everypony with the delicious, horrible food they'd be embarrassed to be seen eating in public. It works as long as everypony goes along with the unwritten rules that what happens at the Incognito Cart, stays at the Incognito

Trotcon, Columbus, OH, USA, Dec 17-19 · 10:49pm Dec 15th, 2021

Trotcon rescheduled its cancelled summer convention to December without telling anybody.

I've attended Trotcon for years, and they have my email and my address, but I got no notification that the con was being held, but moved to December. Just found out a few weeks ago. Forgot to post anything on fimfiction because I don't do much on fimfiction lately except check my notifications once a week bcoz knighty made notifications disappear after a week. Sorry!

Kidnapping, Human Trafficking, and Halloween: Where those big numbers come from · 6:30pm Nov 4th, 2021

Trigger warning: Counting of horrible things.

(I don't quite understand how to do a trigger warning. If a subject triggers someone, then just naming that subject will trigger them just as badly. So how are you supposed to write a trigger warning?)

I found a page on missingkids.org that answers the question: How often ARE children abducted in the US?

Kidnapping, Human Trafficking, and Halloween · 7:25pm Nov 2nd, 2021

Last weekend was another pathetic faux-Halloween. Children were allowed to trick-or-treat from 4-6 PM, to make sure none of them were out after dark, or even in twilight. I didn't even buy candy this year; I just pulled the still-nearly-full bowl of candy from last Halloween out from an end-table drawer. I waited by my door for those 2 hours, and was visited by one group of kids.

More proof that I'm Celestia · 7:38pm Aug 23rd, 2021

Back in 2013, I learned that my name means "peaceful god, lover of horses".

This year, I learned that my Chinese zodiac sign is the Fire Horse.
