We were somewhere around Ponyville, on the edge of the Everfree, when the Poison Joke began to take hold.

Uninteresting Autobiographical Stuff

I write stuff. Some of it is about ponies, which I put here. Some of it is not, which I don't put here. Some of the pony stuff is racy. Some of it is insane. Some of it is highly confusing. You have been warned.

I do not write for popularity, and "hitting the feature box" is about the least interesting thing I can possibly imagine for my time writing here. In fact, I can think of few things less interesting than rank popularity. If anything of mine ever does become that popular, I'm probably doing something wrong. I would much rather be thought-provoking than popular, which means that I'm naturally excluding a lot of readers. Which, considering the sort of dreck that tends to become popular, is perfectly fine with me. Better the criticism of the wise than the approbation of fools.

Mostly I write fanfiction to develop my literary skills, and as a way to explore some of the nonsense that goes on in my head, within the limits of the existing MLP universe, of course. Much of my work starts out as thought experiments, or as homages to, and experimenting with the writing styles of, some of my favorite authors.

I also review stuff, mainly for Rage Reviews and Blunt Reviews (although I've put that on hold for the time being); which means my reviews can get pretty in-depth, and pull no punches. I'm a stickler for technical skill and Pony content. I will do Rage Review requests; but if you want me to Rage your story, then make sure your technical skills and pony content are up to snuff, and may Luna have mercy on your soul.

Non-Pony - Hazbin Hotel Review · 10:54pm November 24th

So, if anyone hasn't seen it, a new animated series pilot by YouTube animator Vivziepop called Hazbin Hotel launched earlier this month. It's NSFW due to language and graphic violence, so I'm not going to link it here, but it's really easy to find, and despite some rather glaring flaws, I'd say you should watch it for yourself (if you're into that sort of thing). I'd seen the various trailers and teasers, and was very much looking forward to seeing it. Eagerly awaiting, even. Now

Brain must not be working, 'cause I don't remember what that refers to.

Since the thread got locked: that makes the two of us, because I can't believe it needs to be explained that a hunger/anger pun with Trollestia emote was sarcastic, but whatever...

No, not for me, it was just a doodle that she did. We were just hanging out in the same place when she drew it, and I immediately fell in love with it when I saw it.
