    The Reason They Like Mountains

    I've heard a variety of possible reasons why unicorns like mountains, from the physical ("lots of gems there") to the psychological ("Rincewind Arcology Syndrome").

    Cryptozoology Thought: Timberdogs

    In today's wacky ideas brought on by drink... the domestication of the timberwolf. Because who doesn't want a bunch of tiny shaggy-barked puppies running around the place?

    The Love Icosahedron Incident of 2974

    ...was exactly what it says on the tin.

    It turns out that there are some... issues... when the Alicorn of Love goes through puberty and the associated hormone-driven magic surges in the middle of a major city. My, that was fun to keep under wraps.

    (There's now a special "In Case of Princess House" on a suitable remote island in the Great Celestial Ocean, because it would be even more fun to keep under wraps if, say, the Alicorn of Lust should turn up one day.)

    From the Easy Ways to End the World Dept.

    Explain Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem to Twilight Sparkle.

    I give it, ooh, maybe six hours of twitchy-eye and increasing mane disarrangement before she goes full "If I can't find a self-consistent universe, I'll make a self-consistent universe!"

    Conlang Resolutions

    ...even if it would make life simpler since I already have the words to hand, I will not translate "cutie mark" into Eldraeic as trakveth láril (lit. "butt sigil").

    ...no, not even if it would let me formalize the science of "hindquarter sygaldry", which is probably the best phrase I've coined this week.

My Writing

On this site, I'm almost entirely a reader. Mostly because I have a tendency to take on way too many projects at once, and if I start writing fan-fic as well, I'll get even less done than I do now.

But I do write original short and nano-fiction set in my own science-fiction universe, per my bio, so if you think that might be to your taste, you can check it out here at The Eldraeverse, or even here if you want to go straight to book or e-book.

Thanks for visiting, either way!

(P.S. Username origin is here, for the incorrigibly curious.)
