New story: A Lovely Crusade · 12:36pm Jun 21st, 2020

So when I was in the process of finishing up the previous story, SigmasonicX posted the Pride and Positivity event. While that story technically fit the bill (and is part of the event!), I felt a little bit like I was phoning it in, and wanted an entry specifically for the event.

Soul Marked musings · 5:52pm Jun 9th, 2020

I was inspired to write this little* thing after reading AlphaRidley's I'd like to soulmate with you. I thought it was a fun idea, and thought, Oh hey, I'm going to try to put my own spin on that. It'd been a few months since I'd written anything, and I was getting nowhere with the outline for the Luna in Manehattan story.

Things Aren't All Right · 12:33pm Jun 5th, 2020

The world is kind of on fire right now.

As I hinted in my previous blog post, I had a story kicking around in my head for Twilight Prime from For Want of a Horseshoe and the local version of Shining Armor giving each other grief. I hint at this encounter in FWoaH, and here it is.

And, Cut · 10:51pm Sep 14th, 2019

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

For Want of a Horseshoe Progress Update · 9:30pm Aug 21st, 2019

When I began writing this story, it flowed almost effortlessly. The plan was to post an update once a week, and have a nice bow tied around it by the end of April.

Then chapters 5 and 6 happened.

For Want of a Horseshoe Ch 5 Original Draft · 2:01pm May 1st, 2019

This chapter was a real hairball, and I had an entire two thousand word first draft, most of which I had to junk. You can find it below:


The beginning of the chapter was mostly the same--Nightmare standing on the balcony before entering her room and opening the portal to Celestia.
