Just Minor Update · 3:01pm April 27th

Hey, apologies that it's been a while since there's been an update on the story. Things have been somewhat crazy at the moment for obvious reasons. Over the last few weeks had to: move all my course online, move out of dorm (so in a completely different state right now), had a competition that had to get moved online, and am currently finishing up dissertation project stuff. Not going to even talk about job market.

New Story of Mine: A Glimmer of Hearth's Warming Magic · 9:55pm January 26th

While a little late for the holiday season, I have finally gotten the first chapter of a new fanfic series: A Glimmer of Hearth's Warming Magic. Inspired by cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies, this fic gives me a chance to play around with Starlight Glimmer and Trixie, which are my favorite characters of the series and whose relationship I was always happy to see. For you readers of "In Somepony's Shadow", my plan is to alternate between these two so I can get more variety so it doesn't mean that

Story Updates · 6:52pm January 19th

Sooooo, I never got around to that Hearthswarming Eve inspired fic, so my bad. With the new semester starting I do plan to get back to "In Somepony's Shadow", so don't worry, not abandoned. I'm probably also going to try and work on that other fic anyway because I had that planned like two Christmases ago so...yeah, maybe should not try and do it as a seasonal thing and just write the damn fic.

Comments on MLP Finale · 1:31am Oct 14th, 2019

No fanfic chapters this week, because all that energy went into writing a 4k word post on what I thought about the series finale for the show. Available at my old analysis blog: https://wordpress.com/stats/post/641/analysisismagic.wordpress.com

I'm Actually Writing Stuff · 3:04am Sep 16th, 2019

So, it's been a while since I said I was going to write stuff, and then never did, but the good news is I'm actually working on the introduction to the next arc! I'm hoping to get it out later this week, actually. This arc will hopefully give me a chance to start branching out into a wider cast of characters, and a few years of writing will have helped me hone things a bit. I'm excited, and now that I started I got motivation to try and be at least somewhat regular on posting. Still in grad

So, good news/bad news time.

Bad news is I didn't get lucky with the academic job market, so gonna be staying with my grad program another year instead. Good news, is that means I now have a finished dissertation basically and don't have as high as stress (beyond normal stress of teaching, research, etc.) and can have a bit more spare time to start thinking on the fic!

Finishing the Arc + Hearth's Warming Story · 4:05am Dec 5th, 2018

So, good news people: I'm actually getting to work on finishing up the last chapter of the current arc of "In Somepony's Shadow". Happy Hearth's Warming Eve gift, I guess (heh). Overall, if I had to go back and redo this, and bit more experience writing fanfiction and not RPs, I'd be tempted to say the pacing could have been a lot better, more drawn out conflict. Admittedly a bit of bad habit I've picked up is I can imagine some good scenes but get a bit impatient at the actual build up needed

Still Alive, and Good News · 3:20am Mar 23rd, 2018

So I mentioned in a comment on "In Somepony's Shadow", I'm a graduate student who is now currently in the dissertation and teaching phase of my PhD program. Basically, I'm sort of an academic now. As you can imagine, doesn't exactly leave me with much in the way of spare brain power to do things. But, I never quite forgot about the story, and since some of my few other outlets for doing pony stuff have started fading as others move on from it, I needed something for me to get my Trixie

Revised "Mid-Lesson Snack Break" · 4:12am Apr 18th, 2017

So, I got some feedback on Mid-Lesson Snack Break I should have probably gotten before publishing, but I took it into account and kind of rewrote the whole last bit of it and added an extra 1000 words or so ^_^". So for anyone who had been reading or watching it, might suggest going back again. Same sort of thing, but drew out the argument between Trixie and Starlight so feelings were a bit more hurt and things said and basically upped the conflict a little more so to give even more fluffy

In Somepony's Shadow Stuffs · 5:09pm May 1st, 2016

...okay, my bad here XD. It's been what, almost a year since the last update. I've mentioned I'm a graduate student working on a Ph.D before, right? Papers, classes, research projects, conferences and stuff. Eats up a lot of time. Add in my natural procrastination and, well, no surprise I kind of neglected the fic.

Spoilers for this week's MLP episode
