Is there any way to tell who added a story to a group? · 4:08pm Mar 21st, 2014

Because I would love to know who added "My Life as an Eldritch Abomination" to the group "Stories Where the Character has an Obscenely Tiny Penis." I really would.

If you're curious, it was Pastor Pulp, and "it wuz for lels." I assume that means there was absolutely no reason behind the randomness.

Reflections upon sexual orientations · 7:35am Mar 14th, 2014

So this one is me being curious. Curious and prone to my mind wandering. And you're almost like a captive audience I can ask questions of, even if it's unlikely many of you will answer.

When a study or a survey (anonymous, of course) asks you your sexual orientation, and provides the normal set of options (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, maybe asexual, other, and maybe "decline to answer"), how well do you feel the answer you give fits you?

Sad Applejack · 7:27pm Mar 9th, 2014

I rather suspect yesterday's episode was the most AJ's dead parents have been on her mind since the family reunion.

Seabreeze is just a big softy · 8:24am Mar 6th, 2014

If you think like me, you may have wondered what a breezy as motivated as Seabreeze was doing near the back of the column. You may have thought it awfully convenient that the leaf was just far enough forward to cut him off from the line; had he not been stuck with the stragglers, they never would have gotten home. Or you may simply remember that in my last blog post, I questioned why there weren't experienced breezies bringing up the rear to ensure nobreezy got lost. Well, I for one wonder no

The Real Question · 7:11am Mar 2nd, 2014

I'm sorry for my blog post earlier. And I am sorry for precisely one reason: there is a post I need to make today, and that wasn't it. Any other post is entirely superfluous. I just hadn't realized at the time what was needed.

Spoilers, by the way, if you haven't seen "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies." You never did tell me if you care about spoilers, Kitsune.


Alright, have we got that out of the way? Good, good.

So. Jealous. · 7:58pm Mar 1st, 2014

That spell. THAT SPELL. That beautiful spell that Twilight cast this morning. Words do not describe how much I want that spell. But I must express it, and words are all I have.

Reflections upon followers · 6:43am Feb 21st, 2014

Yeah, I guess I'm just in a reflective mood this week.

So. Followers. To my knowledge, most people on this site have them. More importantly, a quick check reveals that seven out of the nine people who might read this have at least one follower. That's quite easily a majority. But how often do you think about your followers? And what do you think about your followers? For that matter, how often do you think about your relationships with the people you follow?

Reflections upon singing behind curtains · 1:43am Feb 19th, 2014

I think I can reasonably assume that I am not the only one to see parallels between myself and Fluttershy in the latest episode (or in general, but that's a different topic). Plenty of people fear to expose themselves by sharing the products of their creativity, talents, or lack thereof (I kid, I'd never dream of saying that about anybody but myself). Many people initially stumble or are forced into something that they turn out to quite enjoy, and that does include people who had to be pushed

Writing balanced stories · 9:04am Feb 11th, 2014

I've noticed I keep putting too much detail into the beginnings of my stories, getting most of the way to a thousand words before I even really get going, and then running out of time and/or patience and rushing the end. "Stranded in the Everfree," "Manehattan's Hoofprint," and the one I'm writing for this week are all horribly front-heavy. Clearly, this is less than ideal. But I don't notice I'm doing it until I'm 800 words in and nothing's happened yet, and by then I've already wasted the
