The purpose of a story is that it's a story. It can be more, but it can never be less.

Major Achievement! · 4:12pm Monday

After just under two years and nearly three seasons, my narrative podcast 'the Scarab Archives' has hit 100,000 plays! Feeling like a proud papa right now.

Summer Sin 2022 · 7:59pm May 4th

Oh yeah, it's summertime.

My contest days are over, but I still have a great time with the story exchanges. If you're so inclined, look over here for the details.

Gonna have a pretty big non-pony related announcement at the end of the month. Stay tuned...

A Hearth's Warming Prelude · 5:34am April 23rd

(The following is the first draft of an upcoming prologue. All text is subject to change.)

////////////////////////////////////

"She's here, your Majesty."

Princess Celestia of Equestria sighed heavily as she slumped deeper into the plush cushion of her throne. "Is it that time of year already?"

April Update · 6:16am April 18th

-The She Will Be Adored Contest results are in, and... I lost. Again. So yeah. Contest days are over.

-For this year's Halloween story title, I'm not gonna lie; 'the Cuckoo's Lament' is starting to grow on me. Wolfram-And-Hart had a few good ones, though. I have time to decide.

-'Silent Night: A Hearth's Warming Horror Story' has officially entered production. Chapter 1 is 50% complete already.

Final 'Hearth's Warming Horror Story' Title... and Halloween Story Announcment · 3:40pm March 19th

Thanks to Wolfram-And-Hart, coming this December is 'Silent Night: A Hearth's Warming Horror Story.'

But first, this October will see the debut of a long gestating idea. One that is also in need of a title.

-"It's been one year since graduation, and the former students of Canterlot High are shaken when one of their own is murdered. After a second death, it's clear that the class is being targeted. And with the third it's clear that no one is safe.

Why I Deleted A Story: An Explanation · 6:44pm March 9th

To begin with, this blog is going to deal with some taboo topics. Specifically incest. Not in an explicit way, but it will be mentioned.

I also have the feeling that some folks aren't going to like what I have to say here, and that's fine. I've enjoyed your company, but if this is where we part ways, then so be it.

Continues after the break.

Hearth's Warming Horror Story News · 5:55am February 27th

The plot of third (and final) Hearth's Warming Horror Story is nearing completion. I intend to write it over the course of the year so it's ready for a December debut. I've learned lessons from the first failed sequel, and I really think this is going to be a stand-out conclusion.

Know what I haven't done in a long time? · 6:23am February 14th

Taken a perfectly happy canon couple and put them through the ringer!

This little bit of sadness wouldn't leave me alone until I wrote it. Please enjoy.

2022: Ten Years on FIMFiction · 5:59pm January 3rd

Happy New Year!

I created my FIMFiction account in April 2012, but I didn't post anything until that October. I was still on the Pony Fiction Archive, and the FIMFiction interface was too daunting for my little brain. Over the past ten years, however, this place has become my online home, and you have all become my extended family.

We've laughed together, cried together... you even helped me put my family in a better place than they were. You guys, and this place, are just the best.

Inbound Story Alert! · 8:44pm Nov 11th, 2021

Since it's already about halfway done, I'm comfortable in announcing the imminent arrival of 'the Architects of Fear.'

'Architects' is my own take on what has become the new hotness in the world of fan-written horse words; explaining the gap between G4 and G5 and exploring what events might have led to such division between the tribes. In my story's case, Sunny Starscout gets to ask these questions first-hand (first-hoof?) when she comes face to face with the alicorns who came before her.
