    Backstory: The First Adventure

    In the first entry of this blog, I briefly described the creation of the OCs Quicksilver and Misty.  I developed information about them growing up, including how they met, how they got their cutie marks, etc.  The problem was that most of that content just didn't fit into your normal adventure story. So fairly early in the process of writing the other stories in the series, I attempted to do one specifically about these early years. It was a complete disaster. There was nothing to tie it

    Deleted Scene: High Water Mark

    As I mentioned previously, High Water Mark originally had a chapter 4 that explored a visit by Mayor Bigwig and Heavy Pony to Canterlot to see Quicksilver and Misty. My pre-readers didn't complain, but the editor had some pretty harsh words about it. And when I say "harsh", I mean curl up in a corner and consider if I should even be writing.

    Backstory: High Water Mark

    As discussed in a previous blog entry, when I first conceived of The Quicksilver Chronicles series, I envisioned them to be a go-and-do style.

In the end, High Water Mark was the only story idea that actually got written. The rest

The Quicksilver Chronicles


Artwork by by 108Fiona8Fay

Ever have one of those days?  Could be a natural disaster, or a changeling invasion. Perhaps the return of a millennia-old evil, or even an alternate timeline (thanks Starlight). The Quicksilver Chronicles is a series of stories that follow the adventures of Quicksilver, a unicorn alchemist, and his wife Misty, a pegasus botanist. On a good day, they enjoy living in Canterlot doing research in their respective fields. When fate chooses to intervene in their lives, which it does with annoying regularity, they have another one of those days.
