Me and my ponies never go out of style. -The Dreamlands

FAQs

Can I do a reading of one of your stories?

Absolutely! I just ask you link me to the final result so I can add it to the story's description.

Can I translate one of your stories?

Absolutely! I just ask you link me to the final result so I can add it to the story's description.

Can I draw fanart for your stories?

Absolutely! Nothing brightens my day more than this. I love fanart.

Why do you disable ratings?

It's really just a personal preference on my part. People have different tastes and different talent levels. And while the rating system was usually kind to me before there was an ability to disable them (several of my stories had 100% ratings, and most were in the 90s), I still don't think there should be a 'dislike' button. Just because I dislike something doesn't make it bad, and just because something is popular doesn't necessarily make it good.

Do you take requests or commissions?

Nope. I've got too many writing projects of my own I need to complete. I have almost as many unfinished/unposted fics as I do completed/posted ones.

Can I review one of your stories?

Who am I kidding, no one ever asks this, they just do it. The answer, however, is I'd really prefer if you didn't. I can’t stop you, but humbly ask that you respect my wishes.

I write the stories I want to read. I share them because there may be people who might enjoy them too. If you like them, give them a favorite. If you hate them, print them out and line your cat's litterbox or bird's cage with them. I don't recommend using them as toilet paper, but maybe if you print on really soft paper...

But I like your story! I want to tell everyone how great it is!

Thank you, but the answer is still 'no'. I don’t like being the center of attention.

Do you have a Patreon, Ko-fi, PayPal, or anything like that?

Nope. You'll just have to continue paying the low, low, low price of 'free' to enjoy my stories.

If you're looking to support authors, I recommend Estee and Starscribe.

Do you have Facebook, Discord, a gaming ID, etc.?

Nope. I don't do social networking and my newest gaming platform is a PS2. This is pretty much the only place to catch me online these days.

I flunked out of the School of Friendship. Social networking just isn't my thing.

Has anyone ever told you that you're not particularly friendly?

Yes. I've also been told that I'm arrogant and unapproachable.

None of these is particularly accurate. The reality of the situation is I'm an Enneagram Type 5. Social interactions are something I strive to avoid, hence why I have this FAQ I can direct people to. But much like Wind Whistler, I do have emotions and feelings, and try hard to respect the feelings of others.

I'm also very matter-of-fact and I have a bad habit of telling people what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear.

Suffice it to say I prefer to keep to myself. That said, I respond to direct messages and read comments.

Who is this Wind Whistler you speak of?

Go watch some G1 episodes. Sure they have their cutesy moments, but G1 was way more badass* than G4 could ever hope to be.

Don’t believe me? Click here.

*And cheesier. It was the '80s, after all.

Pronouns?

Yes. I find they're quite useful when writing. Just like verbs, adjectives, and nouns.

What are your gender pronouns of preference?

He/him/his. Another popular option is to abbreviate my screen name to ADIS.

People are people. I don't bias on grounds of gender, race, identity, orientation, religion, etc. and will do my best to accommodate your preferences.

What's your Social Security number?

Hold on, I've a card with that number on it somewhere. I just need to remember where I put it...

Does anybody really know what time it is?

25 (or 6) to 4.

Does anybody care?

...But you just asked. :facehoof:

Where do you get all those cool car pictures?

I took them personally.

Best pony?

Worst pony?

The Ford "Mustang" Mach-E. This monstrosity is a Mock-er-E to the galloping pony.

Best ship?

I never really thought about it. I guess any that are still seaworthy? That generally helps.

Worst ship?

Conversely, I'd have to go with any that sank. Sometimes you get a great song (Edmund Fitzgerald) or popular movie (Titanic) out of it, but usually it's preferable if your ship continues to be buoyant...

Not boats! :facehoof: Shipping!

Oh! In that case, UPS.

Post a picture of yourself!

That's less a question and more a request. Also, no. Due to the ongoing pixel shortage, there just aren't enough to go around to censor out all the ugly.

What do you think about when you're laying in bed at night, looking up at all the stars?

...What happened to the roof?

Where were you on the 24th at 6:35PM?

Hanging out with an airtight alibi.

Are you crazy?

You may be right. I may be crazy. But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for.

There's just one more thing...

Sorry, Mr. Columbo, but that's all the time we have tonight. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm not sure ponies are really cut out for motorcycles. However, there's one as-yet-to-be-introduced mare in the Car Wash series who has a scooter: https://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Name/scootersprite.html

I just picked her up at PVCF over the weekend. :pinkiehappy:

Dan

WHy do all the mares insist on 4 wheels?

Surely, some of them might feel some kinship or resonance with a TRON or Akira bike.

Or Feathermay wants a Nausicaa Glider.
