    Stories: The Old Comfort

    Humans tell stories. We always have, and always will.

    I started another blog with these exact words once before. Back then, I was giving writing advice. Maybe soon enough I should get back into that habit. But, for now, this is going to be a blog post about the stories we tell each other. About their ability to comfort, and their ability to ensnare the mind and imagination. And to some, enslave them.

    Into the Sewers

    A lot of right-wingers are kind of panicking/scratching their heads right now at the still-ongoing blowback on what happened on January 6th. Some are veering into whatabboutism, some are trying to argue it was Good, Actually. More talking about a communist takeover or holding out the final, desperate hope that somehow Trump will still be President after noon on January 20th. Seems to be a surprise to a lot of them. As if the last four years hasn't happened.

    True Identities.

    It's time for a name change.

    My name is Blarghalt. It's always been, really. It's the name I've usually gone by on the internet since I was 17. Eight years ago, I chose the name 'Bok' because, well. I was embarrassed. I didn't want people knowing that I wrote fanfiction about colorful horses. Eight years ago, if someone had mocked me about writing MLP fanfic, it probably would've legitimately bothered me.

    Now? I write MLP fanfic. What of it?

    In Which Bok Comments on the Election

    You know, I've never actually made a blog about politics before. Sometimes I comment on blogs that have a political nature, but that's a recent development from the last year. Even after 2016 I kept quiet, seeing this website as a place I could write colorful horse fanfiction rather than a place to worry about political stuff.

    Politics on here wasn't my problem. Until people started getting obnoxious. And when there's nazi stuff being celebrated on the front page? Where I can see it?

    There are no rules. Only principles.

    Humans tell stories. We always have, and always will. But what we haven't always done is tell stories in text, and it's not something that comes to us naturally the way verbal storytelling does. To compound on this, I've noticed over the years that the lessons we teach people on how to read and write when they’re young give them a functional grasp, ie you can understand what they’re saying at least, but it helps precisely none towards the actual art of wordcraft.
