Beware The Carpenter


What looks white when it's glad, red when it's sad and transparent when scared; sleeps through the night yet hides from the sun, won't give its name but pretends it's a bee and enjoys rollerskating?

Epic Readout · 4:26am May 11th

So some guy I never heard of just did an epic readout of a story I posted about six months back; with pictures included! A few of the lines are bungled but there are corrections in the comments.

Founder and organizer of the Tournament of Canterlot:

An Oxfam fundraiser aimed at helping the more than three million refugees who’ve fled Syria, fic authors enter their stories to the group, and then try to get their followers to sponsor them. At the end of 2015, stories with the most fundraising win cash prizes.

I am participating in a tournament I organized, but if you look at the way this is set up, you will see there's no way I could cheat and none of the money ever goes through me. I tried a couple times to get a group of fictioners to be the founding members of this group, but no one wanted to help me so I'm going it alone. Follow my blog for updates on the tournament.

My first fiction was Storm of Secrets (SOS) which I began spontaneously and without much planning. After that I started working on my Limits of The Horizon (LOTH) series which will probably be about 200k words when finished, is vastly more complex than SOS and which I enjoy far better, even though it’s had less likes and more dislikes than SOS did. (Time of writing: Febuary 8th 2015.)

Unless I explicitly say otherwise; every one of my stories are interrelated to one another, and build on each other’s characters. I started watching MLP between seasons 2 and 3, and so my cannon splits at the end of season 2 (with an alternate ending); however I will occasionally incorporate newer characters such as Maud.

You can enjoy any of the shorter stories on their own, but you won’t appreciate their significance in the grander scheme of things. My short stories cover a wide range of emotions, many of them silly and comedic, but LOTH generally keeps a dark and serious tone.

This and that:

I have created dozens and dozens of in depth, original characters; I have never created an ‘OC’ whose meant to be me and frankly I don’t understand why everyone else does it.

Utopian myth
Alicorn gods?


I am above average intelligence, and somewhat aspergic. My mom is a teacher/ tutor who specializes in gifted kids, so I happen to know quite a lot about social and intellectual advantages and disadvantages of being mentally enabled. As a result, I doubt I will ever write a story dealing extensively with this:

When I’m curious about a topic I contemplate it, and that’s when stories form in my mind; to help me work through the issues I don’t fully understand. Mind you I also do research on topics I write on, sometimes quite a lot, and I try to keep my stories socially accurate; but don’t presume I’m an expert on every one of the issues I touch on in Limits of the Horizon. I'm very happy to discuss anything you don't think I got right.

(Seriously though, this would be true for almost every fiction author.)

Banned?

I've read Limits of the Horizon and some of the satellite stories. I'm now planning to read the whole thing again. Your stories are so imaginative and I love them. I don't usually go for gore, but I go through it to read your fiction. You remain my favourite FiM author.
