I'm gonna be an uncle come July!

Rest assured the kid will be raised as a proper servant of the Emperor if I have anything to say about it.

Merry Christmas to you all :pinkiehappy:

Omake: Through The Eyes of a Spark · 2:03am Apr 24th, 2021

Angelique walked the halls of the ship, so familiar yet humming with the souls of countless she never knew or would know. The pillar was right behind her, the Hospitaller watching her every step in case the stimulus overwhelmed her, but Angelique was in no danger. In the presence of the mare and the prodigal, the tides had calmed around the young psyker.

How long that would last was not a question that entered Angelique’s mind. It was far too broken for that.

Annual April Post · 5:49pm Apr 17th, 2021

In ten days, I will have been on this site for nine years. I want to say that makes me part of the old guard or something, but there have been way more people who've been part of the fandom longer than I have.

That makes me... what? Slightly less than old but still pretty darn old guard? Second wave? Pretentious?

I believe I should be honest with you all · 6:22pm Dec 16th, 2020

This year sucks, but we all know that.

It has been pretty hard for me, to be honest. And I feel that, with how silent I've been, you have a right to know a bit of what's going on.

When I started this year, things were going great. I had plans to get a teaching license, both my wife and I had stable jobs, and we were getting involved with our new community. We both felt welcomed and accepted, and it looked like a good place to truly settle down.

Then Covid happened.

Omake: The Magic of Friendship · 7:29pm Jan 16th, 2020

Nigthmare Moon had managed to reach the castle before her sister's insipid student and her friends. That would give her all the time she needed to set her trap, and perhaps located the Elements of Harmony before the others did. The dark alicorn roamed the decrepit throne room, searching for the best place to lay in ambush for when the little ponies arrived.

Happy New Year to you all · 12:24am Jan 2nd, 2020

Welcome to 2020.

Last year has been one of ups and downs. I moved, had to find a new job, helped my wife start her own career, did a lot of writing (though probably not as much as I would have liked), rented a cat... Next year is going to be pretty busy as well, since I'll be taking some classes in preparation for getting my Master's degree in the future. I'll keep writing, as always, and hopefully I'll get a little bit closer to finishing something again.

Season 10 Bingo · 4:24pm Dec 8th, 2019

Hello all,

As you may have noticed, my updates have been... well, sporadic. I've been dealing with some job-related issues and that's eaten into a lot of my focus, such that I haven't really gotten back into the rhythm of writing again.

But that's changing; I'm feeling out my schedule more, plotting out a few things, and doing my best to get back on the horse, as it were. To that end, I decided to shake up a thing or two and entered a writing contest here, the Season 10 Bingo contest.

Omake: Three Times Concerning Naomi's Scars · 4:57am May 14th, 2019

“... And it is welcome that you all have improved so greatly since our departure.” Sister Naomi continued, Ruth hanging on her new Superior’s word with every word. She looked out the corner of her eye at her new Sisters, some new recruits while others were older veterans, all of them kept their focus on the Superior as if she were the Emperor Himself.

As they should, for she is the representative of His Order.

April Post, Starring Me · 2:25pm Apr 5th, 2019

Hello all!

For those of you that have followed me for some time, it is now April. A lot of stuff happens or has happened in April. First off, today is my Birthday. Go me, I survived another revolution around the sun.

24 feels not much different from 23, though I suppose I'm a lot more busy. Especially since my wife accepted a teaching job in a town about 4 hours south of where we currently live, so I've got moving and a new job search to look forward to in the coming months. Yay.
