How does ponies hold things? A fan theory. · 11:51am Aug 15th, 2017

Ponies are tiny horses. (Colorful magical ones in this case). Thus, they have hooves.

How does hooves hold and manipulate objects? (Nevermind instances where pegasi manipulate things with their wings and earth ponies seem to manipulate things with their.. manes and tail, apparently Pinkie Pie picked up a few pointers from the Mane-iac)

Most authors say magic. Less edumecated ones say "magnets". But most objects are not ferrous. So that was never a satisfactory answer.

Dominions 4: My Little Pony mod progress report #2 · 11:24am Aug 28th, 2016


Sorry! Sorry, I know its been... wow, 50 weeks? But you have to understand a very very important aspect of my person. One that defines me as a sentient being.

I am lazy! And easily distracted.

So with that potential anxiety out of the way. Here's what I've been putting off doing.

* Updated my modding tools to 1.2 as well as implementing Notepad++ in the process. Crash errors are up by 200% as a result!

Update on my Dominions 4 mod · 1:40am Sep 15th, 2014


Welp, took three weeks, but I'm finally done... With the first era... Basics.
Thankfully this is just a hobby, otherwise I'd be despairing right now.

Was gonna make a blog post... · 2:58pm Dec 28th, 2012

But then I was distracted by King of Dragon Pass. Lovely old game. Not for the faint of heart. Anyways, I was going to blog a bit about my farfetched fantheories such as how the Royal Siblings broke Equestria's basic ecosystem by imprisoning its resident Spirit of Chaos and everything has had to be done manually ever since, but eh, farfetched.

KodP is pretty awesome, though I can't for the life of me stop picturing my Clan Ring as the mane-six. Someone should do a fic...

Princess Celestia's alleged divinity. · 9:44pm Oct 18th, 2012

Princess Celestia, Co-ruler of Equestria. Dominion of the Sun and the sky and possibly a few other things. Commands the very course sun itself (and until Luna got back, the moon too) Her power is unquestioned. Ethereal, eternal, powerful yet kind with nigh infinite patience and love for her subjects.

Not a Goddess.

Not even a little one.
