“Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.” -Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote


Sparks Catch Complete · 8:03pm Apr 12th, 2018

Sparks Catch was supposed to be a interquel- a short episode sitting between Myriad Thoughts and Friendship Games.

Instead, it ended up nearly fifty percent longer than Myriad Thoughts, and established many, many ideas I want to carry forward. So, moving on from here- what do we want to do next?

I have a lot of things I want to handle in Stray Thoughts and Small Fires, and I want you to let me know which should get priority.

Side Stories: and Esmerelda Smith · 6:50pm Mar 27th, 2018

Hello, semi-loyal readers! I've finally released the first part of my story about everyone's favorite awesome Granny.

Go ahead and take a look. The story in question will be an anthology of all of the little ideas I've had while working on the Myriadverse, so expect it to update on occasion, but with fairly short snippets.

A Train Bound for Nowhere · 2:33am Mar 15th, 2018

...I was planning on using this blog post to explain that I'd posted a short story one-shot called "A Train Bound for Nowhere." I assumed that it would clue my semi-loyal reader base into he fact I'd actually posted something that wasn't part of a multi-chapter novel.

Instead, my short story got featured. It's currently sitting at #4 on the featured list.

...I have no idea how that happened.

Thank you all for your support, and happy reading.

Let Me Tell You A Story... · 2:43pm Feb 26th, 2018

Once, long ago, there was a young college student who roamed the internet freely. They avoided the worst parts of the web, but had a certain fondness for TV Tropes.

One day, while wandering, the student found his way into the "fan fiction" section of TV tropes. From there, scornful eyes gazed over the various lemon fics and strange foulness which pervaded the halls of fan works.

Sparks Catch Published · 1:00am Nov 6th, 2017

Someone mentioned that I should have announced when the sequel to Myriad Thoughts was posted. Well, it is, and has been for the last few weeks.

This, by the way, is my first steps on taking the EQG storyline away from canon- so my writing skills are getting more of a workout. Even worse, I decided to storyboard this one before I published it- which has caused my creative juices to be less useful. My next story will not see me make the same mistake.

On Myriad Thoughts and Other Stories · 6:48pm Oct 8th, 2017

Myriad Thoughts is done. When I jotted down the first 500 words three months ago, I expected nothing to come of them. I knew myself well enough, however, to know the idea would lay forgotten if I didn't write it down.

One month ago, while idly glancing over my profile, I realized I had another idea on the abandoned tale. And then a second. And a third. Synthesis of elements form other stories, aspects and random thoughts accumulated until the first four chapter wrote themselves.
