Twilight floated a second fritter up to her mouth when she realized the first was gone. “What is in these things?” “Mostly love. Love ‘n about three sticks of butter.”

I Wrote a Book

A vigilante able to expose the darkest secrets of his victims is stalking the streets of Pierside. Immortal and unstable, he is a spectre risen from the past: an Elevatus—one of the powerful immortals who can only be slain by their own kind.

Ezzy and Maddy are friends who run a small clinic in the worst neighborhood in Pierside. They are drawn into this web of violence when a beat cop brings a wounded victim to their door. But only Ezzy understands how entangled they really are, and she guards both her secrets and her soul from all she meets.

To find their way out they’ll have to confront vindictive immortals, corrupt politicians, and religious fanatics, along with their own troubled pasts and unspoken feelings.

About Me

A few words about me:


I’m a writer, blogger, and group admin here on FimFiction. My favorite characters (and the ones I tend to write about) are Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, and Applejack. I tend to write romances, with a lot of dialogue and a sense of humor even in serious situations. Other things that might interest you:

I’m the group founder for the AK Yearling Society for Original Writing.
The AK Yearling Society is a group here on the site for writers who are interested in news, thoughts, and assistance on breaking into non-fanfic writing. The group is private, to allow people to hold onto first publication rights to any pieces of stories they might post or link to, but anyone can PM me for an invite. More explanation of that in this blog post.

I have a daughter named Trixie.
I refer to her in blog posts as “human baby Trixie,” though she’s two now. Her full name is Beatrix, so she’s only partially named for the pony, and partially for Beatrix Potter (with whom she shares a birthday.)

I blog a lot, and accept donations and Patreon funds for my blogging.
I often blog about writing, shipping, and fandom news. There’s a list of some of my most popular or interesting blog posts on this page. Make sure to glance at the comments, I have some brilliant folks reading my blog and some of the discussions have been better than the blog posts.

Recently I've run into some financial trouble, and have been asking folks to voluntarily subscribe to my blog in exchange for regular blog posts and some extras to show my appreciation. You can find info on subscribing here: Open for Business

You can see the thank you gifts and sign up to subscribe monthly at Patreon, or offer a one time donation through paypal (and receive the same gifts.)

I’m an admin of the AppleDash Group and the TwiJack Group, and have run the Shipping and Romance Writing panel at BronyCon for the past two years.
I love to talk shipping. I tend to really dislike “opposites attract” ships, and I’m not shy with snarky comments about RariJack and FlutterDash, but I enjoy good stories and conversation about just about any Mane Six pairing, including those.


If you’re curious about AppleDash fics, or aren’t sure if you’ve given the ship a fair shot, this list is a good place to start, though sadly outdated.

bookplayer's Blog Index · 7:36am Aug 30th, 2016

This index covers every blog I've written since I joined the site that I think people might want to read or reference. Some of it is outdated, but most of these contain some kind of good or useful information. If there's something you remember that seems to be missing, let me know!

Feel free to comment on older blogs. If I don't respond, it's either because I don't have anything to add or I'm busy, not because the blog post was old.
