Impossible Numbers


When you enjoy it thoroughly, there is no such thing as research for a story. There's just fascinating stuff which happens to be useful.

Stories which have been accepted by Equestria Daily and which I think are the most polished fanfics I've written so far. This list mainly focuses upon my most recent entries.


RAVEN NIGHT SCHOOL combined three things: a character exploration for someone who didn't seem to get much attention at the time; a chance to use some neat "sleep science" I'd picked up here and there; and a cheer for the Dark Is Not Evil trope that also looks at isolation and self-identity.

STINGING THE TRAIL was an expansion of Sky Stinger's side of the relationship: specifically, his cultural background, his prejudices on class and education, and how both influence his new understanding of Vapor Trail's deception. The poor guy doesn't get a lot of focus himself, being somewhat overshadowed by Vapor Trail at times, so this was an attempt to give him his dues. It was also an opportunity to add some world-building elements to his home town of Stratusburg.

UNWORTHY OF THE SUN was an experiment in worldbuilding, casting Celestia as part of a pantheon of gods and Sunset as one of her most devoted - and conflicted - worshippers. Romance is not usually my genre of choice, so the emphasis here is mainly on the inner demons of the two characters, their history together, and the strong emotions that these experiences evoke.

THE WEB UNTANGLED was a tribute to many things: to some much-maligned creatures; to a spectacular BBC nature series I much love; to Fluttershy, obviously; and to both the laid-back, contemplative slice-of-life genre and the speculative, playful "xenofiction" genre. Both a look at the wonderful world of spiders, and a consideration of how even two alien outlooks can still find some common ground, if they give it enough time and patience.

WHITE LIGHTNING AND THE ELITE PONY aimed to provide some depth and character to a background pony who didn't receive much fandom attention. After seeing her tag added to the roster, and finding that one moment in "Hearts and Hooves Day" which showed her at a table with Ponet, I thought I'd find out what was known about her on the wikia and then work on those starting points. From there, I went on to add some unicorn-and-pegasus ideas of mutual envy, and the result is this fic.

It's That Time of Year Again: NaPoWriMo 2018 · 1:22pm November 1st

Blog Number 45: Time Trial Edition

National Pony Writing Month beckons once again, and I don't so much heed its call as camp outside its front door waiting to claim dibs. I took part in 2016 and 2017; it's proven a reliable way to kick-start my writing. (Just as well, because October was lousy).

Hiatus Ends · 2:25pm October 1st

Blog Number 44: Last Lap Edition

There's no point denying it any longer: Yes, I'm still writing. My self-imposed hiatus is officially at an end. It never really started, to be honest. Much as I wanted to take a break, after yesterday and what led up to it, I have to admit I can't.

I've spent nearly all this hiatus trying to write anyway. So why didn't I just admit it?

And once more for luck: You're welcome! :twilightsmile:

Thanks a bunch for the follow! :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the follow! I greatly appreciate it. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the follow!

Huh, I know the feeling. I've lost a few followers over the years and out of the blue, which is understandable given people's interests and priorities change all the time, but still...

Yeah..... It is unsettling when that happens. Especially because there's never a reason to unfollow an author if you lose interest or spend some time away from the site. There's no disadvantage you have from just keep following and if you ever return, you can find the author again much easier if you still follow them. Not to mention that unfollowing means doing an, albeit small, effort, which makes it all the more weird if someone does that.
But I can pretty safely blame it on my own inactivity.....
2017 has been rough for me, with barely any writing as a result, and I'm still a little busy with recovering from that horrible year, so my output is not yet back to where it was in 2016. :ajsleepy: And I'm fatally slow with writing lately, which resulted in a few broken promises regarding release dates.
It happened a few times lately that I had a certain amount of followers and then suddenly dropped down by one and I can very safely say that it happens out of frustration over me being so slow with the stories I announced. It's a rut I need to get out of soon, otherwise, I fear for my reputation that I built up in 2016. :fluttershysad: It already suffered a lot last year.....

You're welcome! :scootangel: There's interesting stuff you've written, for sure. Besides, us background pony writers gotta stick together.

Thanks and you're right.^^ Although, I'm not giving myself that title just yet. I have written very little for background ponies, so far, compared to my total story repertoire here. The stories I've written for Dinky and for Crackle Pop in 2016 and Brown Sugar's story from this year are the most notable examples of my background pony writing.
But I want to write more about background ponies in the future, a lot more.^^ There is one particular idea I have sitting around since early Season 7, which I couldn't write yet because of the issues last year, and I've gotten an inspiration for a horror story on Saturday, for which I will likely write about background ponies and which I hope to be able to write in time for October/Nightmare Night.^^

Thanks for the follow! :scootangel: You actually saved my 200 follower milestone with that, because someone stopped following me, but you brought me back on that number.^^
