Yes, this attempt was inspired by JaidenAnimation's badass Nuzlocke video.

"The Shadowbolts Adventures" began 4 years ago this month. · 10:21pm Oct 31st, 2019

4 years ago this month, “The Shadowbolts Adventures” officially began and quickly became one of my proudest works. The characters are some of my favorites to ever work with, and the themes are ones that are super relevant today, and will be relevant (probably) for years to come. It’s also the series that I put the most of myself into, shaping the characters almost from scratch from characters who had a single-digit number of lines each. So I’ve decided to take another crack at it with a

The end of an era · 4:36am Jul 28th, 2019

Some may think I'm talking about Friendship is Magic ending later this year. And that is also the end of an era. But while everyone was looking forward to that, another era ended entirely by surprise. It turns out that "Sunset's Backstage Pass" was the final Equestria Girls production produced by DHX. The license has been turned over to Boulder Media, whose plans for the franchise are unclear. Effectively, the Equestria Girls as we know them are already finished, aside from whatever webisodes

The Mysteries of Maud Pie · 1:52am Jun 14th, 2018

It's been a long time. I have a new story, The Mysteries of Maud Pie. Nothing super fancy or ambitious here, just a short story I belted out pretty quickly based on something very personal to me.

Forgotten Friendship (spoilers) · 6:58pm Feb 17th, 2018

A new Equestria Girls special! And it's.... ah... aaaauuuugh! AAAAAHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUGH! This special is what I will call a "mixed bag".

On the one hand, it had some fantastic emotional and character-pushing moments.
1: Sunset's confrontation with Celestia.
2: Twilight wigging out in the forbidden section of the library.
3: Sunset bonding with Trixie (though it was almost identical to Starlight's bonding experience with her).

He's gonna take you back to the past · 6:57am Feb 4th, 2018

I looked up recently and realized that it has actually been YEARS since I've watched any of Season 1. I was curious to see how it would hold up after all of the advancements in storytelling and graphics that have taken place over the years, so I selected a few of my personal favorites for revisiting.

Legends of Magic · 5:44am Dec 29th, 2017

The "My Little Pony: Legends of Magic" series from IDW is probably my favorite thing to come out of their entire MLP line. For years they've struggled to tell compelling stories with the Mane 6 without breaking character, and while there are a few successes in there, for the most part their best work has come when they've explored secondary characters like Spitfire and Cheerilee in the "Friends Forever" line. So giving them 7 brand new characters to not only characterize all on their own, but

I'll be there for you, because you're there for me too. · 7:22am Dec 6th, 2017

So, it's been a while. Where have I been? If you want to know the kind of awkward and embarrassing truth, I've been binge-watching the Hell out of the entire series of "Friends". That's right, all 236 episodes in the span of two months or so. I've done basically nothing but eat, work, and watch Friends. It's shocking how easy it was too. Normally when I try to watch a show I'll have to take it in chunks, and I'm a bit exhausted by the end (and that's after ONE season) but somehow the flow of

Happy Nightmare Night everypony! · 7:40pm Oct 30th, 2017

I hope everybody's been doing well lately, it's the season of terror, and in the spirit of things, I have begun a new tale, Corpse Pony (WARNING, RATED M FOR BLOOD AND VIOLENCE), based on the video game "Corpse Party" by Team GrisGris. There are a number of ways in which I've never done anything like this before, so it's certainly been interesting so far. Sorry it's not complete yet, but I didn't come up with a really good premise

Let's talk about My Little Pony: The Movie! · 3:24am Oct 13th, 2017

This movie was a long time coming, and now that it's out, it's... good. I wish I could say it was worth years of hype, but it's simply good. A fun ride with our favorite characters and some new ones that aren't bad in their own right. I'm not really in the mood to sit here and speak super in-depth and examine everything overall, so here's just a bulleted list of some of my thoughts on it, for the curious. Spoiler warning, of course.
