I think far, far too hard about things. These things include magical ponies.

Patriotism This Year · 3:41pm July 4th

Plenty of people probably aren't feeling very patriotic today. I know I'm not. Between the atrocities at the border, the attacks on women's and lgbt rights, and the threats to the press and rule of law? It's easy to feel the country is in a downward spiral, if it was ever that great at all.

Why is Raven like a Writing Desk? · 12:58am March 15th

They both flap.

Poe wrote on both.

They're both covered in black.

Beaks and pens both leave a mark.

Both make words that can startle or spook you.

A fine example of both will catch your eye. So to speak.

Writing desks are old, and so are dinosaurs. A Raven is a dinosaur.

Tara Strong plays both Twilight and Raven. And Twilight is an avid writer with a quill.

Non-Pony Fanfic! · 9:52am March 5th

So, in case anyone is wondering where I've been, I now have an AO3 account for nonpony fics. Star Trek: Discovery is awesome, and there may eventually be some Overwatch in there too.

Fear not though, the Adventures of Daring Do will continue! Just as soon as I get enough of the plot bunnies off my back.

Steven King and Equestria Girls: Two Great Tastes that Go Great Together · 9:22pm January 28th

Imagine it. The unthinkable horror has happened: Steven King takes over writing Equestria Girls. It goes...actually pretty much the same, just more disturbing and with higher stakes. Yes, really. Hear me out here.

DND, Bardic Magic, and the Rainbooms · 1:27am January 14th

Because I have things I should be doing and don't want to, I'm instead going to scribble some notes on stating out the Rainbooms and Sirens as Pathfinder Bards.

So the thing I love about Pathfinder, everyone on both sides can be Bards but we'll still allow specialization with archetypes and Masterpiece feats.

For the Sirens:

You know you're in the fandom too deep when... · 9:35am Dec 24th, 2018

You're watching Aquaman, and a confused Mera eats some roses. And your first thought is 'heh, ponies' before you catch yourself.

Writer Problems · 5:22am Dec 18th, 2018

When you're writing something else entirely, watching clips of Equestria Girls for inspiration, and then you see Monday Blues again.

And all you can do is squee about how cute Sunset and Sci-Twi are. Darnit, I was supposed to be writing about Shining Armor, Agent of SHIELD!

Jinglemass: HELP!!! · 9:50pm Dec 17th, 2018

I have two ideas started I really like, I only have time to write one, and they're close enough I can't just write the second one later!

So, with no spoilers, I ask you: Should I write a drama or a farce?

Your Word of the Day · 1:36am Dec 14th, 2018

Tyromancy, Divination by Cheese.

Yes, this is a real thing. I'm as delighted as you are.

Why is this relevant to Ponies you ask? Well it occurs to me that the diviners we know, the Pies, are Earth Ponies. And that divination through cheese seems like exactly the kind of offbeat, craft based thing Earth Ponies would literally cook up.

And now I'm picturing an Equestrian Tiffany Aching, as an Earth Pony witch.
