"A Place of Safety" · 1:34am Oct 22nd, 2019

I came up with this story idea a little while ago. I wrote out a lot of it, and then I figured, "You know what? This would be a really great way to close out the show. Put this out on the day of the finale, and you can sorta bookend everything."

Then the finale happened, and 1) I totally forgot, and 2) the story wasn't done yet.

Writer's Workshop: Flawless Victory; or, Why Are You Booing Me? I'm Right · 12:44am Jun 8th, 2019

Let's talk character flaws. I know I've already covered them a little bit in some of my previous posts, but I want to take a slightly different tack. What if we wanted to make a character that was perfect? They're always right, they're good at pretty much everything, they can effortlessly conquer every challenge put in front of them? Could we still make a story that's interesting with this kind of character? Would that character still be engaging and relateable? Sure! The trick is that we have

Writer's Workshop: The Allegory Axioms · 12:34am Mar 22nd, 2019

Let's get everyone on the same footing here: there's no such thing as "fiction," really. Or rather, it's impossible to write anything that's completely fictional. Stories always link back to reality, one way or another. This is what I call the "Prime Allegory Axiom." No matter what you write, it's always going to be a reflection of something. With that in mind, we can talk about some specific examples of symbolism and character choices that almost always refer to reality in a

The Tale of the Glorious Angel Food Cake · 12:55am Feb 22nd, 2019

Hi, everybody! I'd like to share with everyone this story I picked up from... somewhere. I'm sure I stole it from somewhere, but the origin is lost to time, now. Anywho, I've tried to tell this story dozens of times, and it never fails to... completely baffle everyone who's heard it. I, personally, think it's hilarious, but I don't think most people get it. It's sort of a Shaggy Dog Story, but I'll tell you now, the punchline isn't a pun or anything like that. It requires some foresight and

Two Short Life Stories · 12:47am Feb 15th, 2019

Hey, all! The following stories don't really have anything to do with... anything, really. They're just small moments that had a meaningful impact on me. I wanted to find some way to share them, but each individual one wasn't enough to make a post on its own, so... here you go.


Story 1:

"Luna's Army" · 1:37am Feb 1st, 2019

[Includes lore elements from The Queen Beckons and Twilight's Star]

I.

She awoke to the feeling of her sister prodding her awake. She stood up and stretched before looking around in every direction. There was nothing but stars and galaxies in every direction, an endless void expanse. Her sister said quietly, “Where are we?”

“I don’t know.” She smiled despite the fear. “It feels like home, though, don’t you think?”

"Hypergraphia" · 2:18am Dec 21st, 2018

[Content Warning: (inaccurately depicted) obsessive mental illness]

“C’mon, Twilight. It’s time for supper!”

Twilight Velvet peeked into Twilight’s study. The young mare was hunched over her notebook, her pen dancing across the page in long, curled strokes. Velvet walked over to get a closer look. “What are you working on?” she asked.

“Oh, I’m just writing,” Twilight replied.

“All right. Well, when you’re finished, come on down, okay? Supper’s just about ready.”

Writer's Workshop: My Good Side · 2:53am Dec 10th, 2018

I was thinking about two characters the other day: Rainbow Dash, whom we all know and love, and Komi Shouko, from Komi-san Has a Communication Disorder. If you've never heard about the second story, the basic thrust of the concept is so: Komi-san is the most beautiful and beloved student in her classroom, dubbed "The Goddess" in one particularly memorably chapter. She's calm, composed, unflappable, totally aloof--or at least that's how she appears to everyone else. The truth is, she's
