Someone who doesn't know how to describe herself, is always struggling with debilitating depression, and won't stop hanging onto the hope that happy endings are possible.


On "Forgotten Friendship" · 1:34am Feb 20th, 2018

It's been too long with the most recent message being notice of my concussion. Especially given that I've recovered. (Less quickly than I would have liked, but it's over now.)

First FIM stuff at my Patreon, which exists · 1:30am Dec 14th, 2017

Just an update about . . . stuff · 12:19am Oct 1st, 2017

The pace at which people update here is just . . . I can't even. When someone writes a whole story before releasing a single chapter then, sure, I can see how that story would go up quickly. But when someone's posting as they go, pausing to proofread and such, even at my best I'd never be making content at the speeds I've been seeing.
