Reason for the quietness · 8:40pm Aug 4th, 2013

Hey everyone, i noticed I got a load of new watchers thanks to Britannia's appearance in Know your Mare by Overlord-Flinx

Just explaining why my stories haven't advanced much.

Britty hasn't been on hiatus for nothing. I've been writing and drawing the Ask Britannia Tumblr on behalf of BUCK the UK Brony convention

Britannia Book 2 on hiatus · 6:58pm Oct 3rd, 2012

Just popping up to say that, for the time being, my second instalment in Britannia's story is on hiatus. I'm still working on it, it's just I'm working with the talented Sketchy Sounds http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Sketchy+Sounds on a very spoiler-filled collaboration starring Britannia and her companions and a cast of his own. It's going well but it's a big project so I'm taking advantage of the creative space while we still can.

Keep an eye out. We'll be uploading at some point.

More music from the world of Britannia · 10:36pm Aug 31st, 2012

There's gonna be a fair few musical references sneaking into the Britannia stories as we go along. Mostly as I find them very inspirational but also because of the mood and tone they help to set in the culture of my version of Equestria.

So here is a version anyone here who is aware of the 'Sharpe' novels by Bernard Cornwell (and the TV series based on them in particular) will probably recognise

"Over the Hills and Far Away"

Transcript Vignette: Friendship is Magic Pre-production notes for S1 E1 · 8:31am Aug 25th, 2012

Playing with my idea that Friendship is Magic is actually a semi-biographic docu-drama in Equestria depicting the lives and times of the Mane 6. This is a transcript taken during a conversation between Twilight Sparkle (*THE* Twilight Sparkle, not the T. Sparkle played on the show by actress, Strong Star) and the series Casting Director, First Class.

Britannia and the Children of the Night: A vignette about vampires · 10:01pm Aug 22nd, 2012

When it comes to writing an epic-length story series, dear reader. one of the things you will have to deal with are scenes you envision that take place months or even years down the line in books yet to be written or that may not even be written depending on whether the plan changes or you are unable to live up to your ambitions. Uggh.

I'm on Equestria Daily guys...How in the hay did that happen? · 7:22pm Aug 20th, 2012

I shall refrain from such childish antics like jumping around like a crazed purple unicorn filly with her cutie-mark (for the moment) and only say that the awesomeness of gaining a post on Equestria Daily is a wonderfully uplifting experience, especially as this is both my first fanfic and the first bit of writing I've done in years.

Note: Huge success! · 7:18pm Aug 20th, 2012

Wow.

I've just returned home from the first Brony UK Convention in Mane-chester and it has been simply extraordinary. I've attended a few cons in the past but I've never had such a fun time. The events were awesome, the Pinkie Pie Party with Lazer pon3 was epic as were the sets by Rainbowcrash88 and the Fighting is Magic music team. And the after BUCK piss-up at FAB, the Manchester nerd bar was an exercise in serendipidous awesome.

When the Griffins Broke Free · 12:34am Aug 18th, 2012

This is from a story some time in the future for Britannia: the Unofficial Biography but I just had to get it down somewhere.


"It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black 'fifty-four.
When the Forward-Commander was told to sit tight
When he asked that his troops be withdrawn.
And the generals gave thanks
As the other ranks held back
The enemy flanks for a while.
And the Hoovegorod bridge-head.
Was held for the price.
Of a few-score of ordinary lives.

So this is what watching a show about magical ponies leads to. · 11:30pm Aug 7th, 2012

First Blog Post...yay?

Well I suppose I'd best put some stuff up about myself.

I took a Creative Writing & English Degree before the economy took a nosedive and the stuff I'll post here will probably be the first extensive writing work I've done in nearly two years. I want to say it's because I needed a break but, really, I just didn't have any motivation. Then MLP came along.
