A good story displays a moral, the best ones attach you to the characters who display them.

It's Decided. · 9:45am January 20th

After careful deliberation, I've decided to go through with my plans. I'm packing up my stories, and reworking the salvageable ones into more original fiction. A Dragon's Hoard, The Black Beast, A Land Without the Sun, An Exit Untaken, What Am I? and The Treasurefruit Tree are all going to undergo immense, immense reworking to remove them from the context of MLP to see if they can stand on their own two legs. Not sure how I'm going to get them out there, but I gotta

About the Future · 8:06pm January 7th

I've noticed that I've lost a lot of my motivation for writing lately, at least as far as this website specifically. My passion for storytelling is still as vibrant as ever, and I love developing worlds and structuring scenes for proof of concept, but I have a hard time finding it in me to continue developing the stories centered around our favorite pastel horses. I've gotten the feeling that my more involved projects on here- A Dragon's Hoard, A Land Without the

So an old friend recommended an anime... · 9:57am Dec 7th, 2020

Some show called Your Lie in April. I thought screw it, might as well finally go full weeb and binge some anime. Wouldn't hurt to be a good friend and try out what my friends enjoy, you know?

One episode in: good start, strong introduction to characters that feel alive and resonant.

Three episodes in: some minor complaints, but nothing that damns the overall show.

Two days and 22 episodes later:

When you start writing simple worldbuilding exposition but end up writing an entire creation mythology · 5:54pm Nov 17th, 2020

Yeah, Reflections is going to be explaining a lot, folks.
Don't worry, though, this should be the only exposition-heavy chapter in A Dragon's Hoard. Plus, if all goes according to plan, it'll have more functions than just exposition.

Two Scout Troopers Discuss Reality · 1:01pm Nov 10th, 2020

I love this video, because it highlights why undermining powerful threats in your narrative by either arbitrarily making them incompetent or treating them like a joke is an extremely bad idea, especially if you want any semblance of legitimately serious stakes in that same narrative... and it's flipping hilarious.

It's in the Works... · 8:27am Oct 23rd, 2020

“Ah reckon Ah’ve let your education fall short where it matters most in our family, and for that Ah’m sorry. You’re my only chance at carrying the family on, and Ah don’t want you runnin’ the family with any foolish notion that peace with Dragons is anything more than lunacy. Ah been putin’ it off for too long, so it’s time you learned why we use the word lunacy.”

Thoughts? · 8:49am Oct 17th, 2020

Nowadays I'm very, very skeptical of new movies- often because my dread is proven correct once the films come out -and I am noticing some possible narrative red flags here that are obvious enough to me. But since the Sonic movie was a decently pleasant surprise despite having the same sort of premise, I'm cautiously intrigued about this one. The Rathalos looks sick, too, but good effects do not a quality movie make.
