The View Over Atlantis · 2:20pm Apr 27th, 2017

I'm having some really conflicted feelings about The View Over Atlantis. I'm just about to wrap up what I think of as "Book One" of the story. After that, there should be a change in setting and tone as we get into the next phase, or the next book.

Samurai Jack · 9:35pm Mar 26th, 2017

If any of you haven't been following the revived Samurai Jack series, what the heck is wrong with you? Go watch it! It's amazing.

Last night the third episode of the new season aired, and the leader of the Daughters of Aku, Ashi, is voiced by. . . Tara Strong??

OK, I'm calling it now: At the end of the season, Jack will join forces with Ashi, the Scotsman and the White Wolf to take down Aku. Probably using some sort of friendship-powered magical superweapon. With rainbows.

The Anonymous HiE · 3:50am Dec 26th, 2016

The Anonymous HiE is the man with no name: that part of us with no identity other than itself, that which is not seen in the world, always in the distance — hidden, somewhere behind.

He exists as himself, for himself, without attachment to conventional morality.

He is not here to save the ponies of Equestria, or to progress their society.

He has a different agenda.

A true resident of the frontier, he is the uncompromising uniqueness of the vastness beyond good and evil.

All the Colours of the Dark · 11:36pm Dec 15th, 2016

Isn't it great when you stumble on a piece of music that dovetails perfectly with your story? I tend to picture scenes in an almost cinematic way, and every good movie needs a soundtrack. When I was writing Black Angel, I was lucky to find a couple of tracks that I felt were worth references in the story itself. And just in case any of your forgot. . .

The View Over Atlantis · 11:34pm Aug 30th, 2016

So, now a major update and attempt to get The Golden Dawn back on track. I've added a prologue to set the stage for those unfamiliar with TCB -- and to spell out some of the details about my spin on TCB. I've added a new chapter.

Zootopia · 5:11pm Mar 5th, 2016

I finally got to see Zootopia yesterday. I won't be tossing out any spoilers, but I do have some observations. . .

Technology in Equestria · 12:46am Feb 19th, 2016

This is a subject that has come up in a lot of fics, and in a lot of comment sections of those fics, and has been subject to a wide range of interpretations. I'm talking about Equestria's "tech level". Just what technology do they have?

Apple Talk · 2:11pm Nov 2nd, 2015

Applejack has always been my least favorite of the main six, but it was hard to say exactly why. After a while I realized a big part of my problem with Applejack was how she talks. She sounds like a Canadian voice actress trying to mimic what she's heard on episodes of Hee Haw. Nobody talks like that. I grew up on a ranch here in Texas, and we didn't talk like that. Now, I can't rightly convey an accent in text, but I can give a few authentic suggestions for those of you wanting to write

Monsters · 3:05am Aug 8th, 2015

When I started writing the interaction between Nightmare Moon and her Nemesis, I originally planned for Nightmare to reveal her origins. However. . . I changed my mind for a few reasons:

1. If I used my own favored explanation for where Celestia and Luna came from, it would actually be a bit of a spoiler for a couple of other stories -- currently on hiatus but I do plan to get back to them.

Black Angel revisions & new chapter · 12:17am Jul 16th, 2015

After spending weeks in the doldrums, I finally got in gear again with my writing. It took a desperate measure, the only thing that has worked for me: I shut off my internet and my gaming computer.

It's hot summer now, too hot here in Texas to do too much outdoors if I can avoid it. So, I'm gonna stay under the A/C, keep the gaming rig turned off, and try to get more writing done. Maybe I can finally wrap up Black Angel.
