"Nothing is so trivial that it's not worth an extended, heated, hostile discussion." --Anonymous, 2020

The Name...

Not for those who like not knowing how the hotdog is made...

Long ago, during the Dark Times, when there was only passable anime on television and the specter of MySpace dominated the land... there was a terrible writer. A 14-year old who thought that he could write, without ever wondering... if he should. One dark night, under a blood moon, in a fit of writer's pique, he asked a friend on what topic should his next short story be?

The "friend" replied, "What about a Pirate-Ninja-Zombie?"

The foolish cur did not know what horror he had wrought! The writer delved furiously into his cause... a cause whose tail was called, "The Adventures of Ryuzaki Deadbeard, Pirate King, Ninja Master, Zombie Emperor!"

It was awful. An unholy blend of Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, and Discworld (forgive me Sir Terry, I knew not what I did). It involved Time Turtles, an army of Egyptian Mechas, and a Cat in a Hat who sold DREAMS as weapons of war. The story could not be destroyed, save in the place in which it was wrought, and so it was cast back into the files of MySpace, where it was smote into its ruin.

Yet the damage was done. And a terrible word of power was forever etched into the writer's soul. That sad, little writer, who gained wisdom... at a terrible price.

And then blabbed the whole story for the internet to mock. Good job.

    Weekly-ish update: And a Deleted Anarchy Scene!

    Another week come and gone. Another story up. And another bout of writer's block. Well, "writer's block". What do you call it when you know what to write, but not... how to write it? I bet there's a word for that.

    That's still the best joke in that game.

    Regardless. For all three of you who check out my blog posts here, I suppose it's about time I had a little chat and told ya'll about what's going on with all my projects.

    New Trixie Chapter FRIDAY (pacific time)

    It's done. Sweet Celestia, that was a hard chapter to get through. Something like twenty or more rewrites, and more than a few cut... um, chapters' worth of material. But that's not the thing that really... really made this a hard chapter to finish.

    Okay, it was. But there was another thing. The content of this chapter is just... hard. Like, I need to write something happy next or I'm gonna crawl into a ball and never stop crying.

    Trixie Update: Slow going, but here's a DELETED SCENE

    So. I write about 2-3k words a day.

    Then, I delete about 90% of the last day's writing, and start again.

    Plus side: The story is coming along well. It's nice and lean, like I like it.

    Downside: It's slow. Very slow.

    Continental.

    But, in other news, I've actually gone back and cleaned up Chapter 1 so that it isn't a super pain in the flank to read!

    Yay! Right?

    Guess Who’s Back?

    It’s Trixie!!!

    ...

    Trixie and Swirly begin the little colt’s training in the mystic arts while racing from danger to danger. But, Trixie‘s time traveling escapades have drawn the attention of somepony they were better off avoiding... yet destined to cross.

    ...

    Two chapters this week, though one of them is a bit short, and the other is longer. Hopefully you all don’t start burning me in effigy over the short chapter.

    Summertime Sadness

    It's summer. I live in a desert.

    I wish I could write more, or just faster. I feel like I've been staring at the same paragraph for months, but it's only been days. I sit down to write, and then something pulls my attention away. I'm already so, so late on writing that thing I promised myself I'd do for Pride that I'm wondering if I need to shelve it for now and get back to the other stories I'm committed to working on.

    The heat's just sapping all my energy these days.

What is the Anarchyverse? · 2:46am May 7th

What is the Anarchyverse?

The Anarchyverse is a collection of stories written by myself that all fall into the same continuity with one another. The name comes from Anarchy: The Pony of Chaos, which is, as of April 2020, the longest and most significant of the stories in this timeline.

What is this post for?

Hey there, Ninjadeadbeard. How are you? I'm not saying this to ask you for help. I just wanted to know how you were today. Like a friendly chat.

Hey there, Ninjadeadbeard. Sorry to bother you again, but I need help with Odium's master plan against the Mane Six. Can you help me?
